Letters to the editor on tolerance, anti-gun agenda, gun safety

There is an uplifting tide of tolerance continuing to come ashore in our country. In my lifetime, African-American men were murdered for trying to flirt with a white woman or for threatening a white man. Buses, theaters, water fountains – everything was segregated. Our armed forces were first integrated after World War II. Little Rock Central High was integrated in 1957 by nine black kids protected by 101st Airborne with fixed bayonets. Fifty-one years later an African-American was elected president, and four years later re-elected.
