What part of “well regulated” is so hard for gun lovers to comprehend?


The Second Amendment gives the right to the people – not the government, not the military, not militias, the people.


The only answer for a bad guy with fire in a Dumpster is a good guy with fire in a Dumpster.


President Obama’s two daughters attend the prestigious Sidwell Friends private school. No inferior public schools for them. It’s perfectly OK to have armed guards at the White House and everywhere they travel. But no guns anywhere near public schools to protect our children. Go figure.


Gas prices jumped a big amount in Wichita. Everyone who voted for Obama needs to pay the higher gas prices, and everyone who didn’t should pay lower prices. You liberals don’t seem to mind taxes, insurance, health care rising, so you guys foot the bills.


Next time somebody decides to phony up a picture of Obama allegedly skeet shooting, maybe they should inform him that you shoot at the clay pigeon when it is high in the sky, not when it is at eye level.


I hope I do not get arrested for having a scarecrow in my garden that gets mistaken for a terrorist and blown to bits by an illegal drone spying on my garden.


Sam Brownback was elected governor to attack women’s clinics. He’s doing that. Why are people complaining to him about other issues?


Secretary of State Kris Kobach has spent all his time in office fighting voter fraud in Kansas. Sadly, he still doesn’t realize that there is no voter fraud in Kansas. He is wasting his time and our money fighting a nonexistent problem.


Asking Kobach to approve the ballot “explainer” statements for neutrality would be absolutely absurd.


I wonder why Kobach isn’t doing something about this invasion of illegal alien “Canada” geese.


The solution to Sedgwick County’s budgetary problems is simple: Just buy the commissioners for what they’re really worth, and sell them for what they think they’re worth. Problem solved.


Reading Leonard Pitts’ column on Feb. 11 (“New GOP, or just cosmetic touch-up?”), I thought for sure Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton was now writing for the Miami Herald.


I don’t think I would whine about the power outage at the Superdome. Just think what it will be like next year playing outdoors. Put on your long johns.
