More From Speak Up

March 06, 2018

I would like for the citizens of Rocky Mount to know and realize that we are paying for the City Council to go on these meetings to Wilmington and other places.

There are several of them and they each have three meals per day with nice hotel rooms and we are paying for them.

It says they even had a…

I agree with the editorial recently in the paper.

We need tougher laws regulating the sale of semi-automatic rifles.

I know the Second Amendment types will whoop and holler, but you cannot ignore the evidence.

Most of these mass shootings involve AR types of guns. U.S. criminals are more apt…

I would like to know as a taxpaying citizen living in the city of Rocky Mount, why it seems to be OK for our homeless people to camp out at any street corner or any exit ramp leading to a main highway with all their belongings in a bag, backpack or tents or whatever they own to stay there for…

March 05, 2018

These strict constitutionalists love the Constitution, so why don't we go back to it?

The way the Second Amendment reads, you have to be a part of the well regulated militia.

Let’s let the law enforcement, members of the military and the veterans have the guns.

Everyone else needs to turn…

I am calling with thoughts after reading Richard Brake's article on how gun control will surrender freedom and rights.

I am not sure if I can even form the words.

He is so worried about his rights that he does not care about lives lost as long as he can keep his guns.

As guns are in homes, kids…

I would like to respond to the comment to the Speak Up about when you do to the hopeless or less fortunate you are doing it to God.

We help these people and most of these panhandlers look pretty healthy to me.

They all seem to have nice shoes on, nice coats and well shaven.

They all try to look…

March 03, 2018

I would like to know what it takes for the Rocky Mount Police Department to come to my house and my neighbor's house across the street to get a basketball goal that is set in the street that is blocking traffic with children out in the street playing.

I have been to the police department and…

March 02, 2018

I am a senior and I really want to applaud the students of the recent school shooting who are going out trying to get Congress to change the laws.

We saw a part of this recently. We are going to pass these laws without any teeth in them, honoring the NRA.

The American people have been so…

March 02, 2018

I am calling about the charges being dropped against those people who destroyed the Confederate monument in Durham.

I am totally incensed over this.

There is absolutely no reason in the world why these people should be set free with no penalty of any kind.

I can guarantee you if someone goes up…

March 02, 2018

We need to look into changing the Constitution.

We had a man in office doing a fine job, President Obama, and he had to leave after two terms.

That doesn't sit well. That is not right.

If he is doing a job good and the people want him back, Obama could have won a third or fourth term if he had…
