Del Mar Woman Fighting Fairground Gun Shows

Law abiding citizens should always have the right to purchase guns. I don't believe that anyone, including those who hunt, needs an automatic or semi-automatic guns that shoot out a ridiculous number of rounds per minute.

We need to form good laws. Start with requiring a license to purchase a gun. Part of the licensing requirement would be a gun safety course and a passing grade on a test. A thorough background check could be done from the time the application is made to the time the license (with photo) is issued. All gun dealers, including those at gun shows, would be prohibited from selling a firearm to anyone who does not have the license.

A law should also be passed that would make it a crime,- with a significant prison term, if someone allows a gun to fall into the hands of a child and the worst occurs.

Finally, revamp the mental health laws in the State of California.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Gun Control Legislation

Gun control is another band-aid fix by our elected officials. This issue goes far deeper than gun control. The mental health laws in California need to be changed. It is no coincidence that all of violence coincides with the breakdown of family and our core values. When I was growing up, single motherhood was frowned upon Divorce was frowned upon. Parents didn't go out and party like they did when they were single or before they had kids. People were satisfied with one income. Mom stayed home to nurture their kids (and actually knew what they were doing after school). We need to be honest about why we are choosing dual-income families. Why can't we be happy in a smaller home, a simple car and fewer electronics/toys/useless items? Until we quit paying homage to the almighty dollar and put our focus back where it belongs, gun control or no gun control, this senseless violence will continue.

Dueling Propositions, 30 And 38, Present Schools A Funding Choice

Sacramento needs to look closely at their 500+ government agencies. How many of those are obsolete and should be abolished? How many have some duplication of responsibility and could be merged? If they look at how they do business like a business, they would find that they don't need to hike our already ridiculously high taxes. If a person lives beyond their means they can't ask their boss for a raise. Why does the government feel they can do this? And for heavens sake people, why on earth do you think it's okay for them to do it? For the past few elections I have voted NO if it requires more taxes. The money is already there. Sacramento just needs to learn how to manage it better.

Chicken Farmers Still Baffled By Proposition 2

Just what we need. Someone needs to let Feinstein know that there are more pressing issues at hand. California voters need to realize that passing ridiculous laws puts the California economy further in the dumper.

Poll Shows Prop 30 Could Get Support It Needs

I'm voting NO. The state needs to cut back on their waste. With over 500 agencies, some must be outdated and can be abolished and others merged.

The lottery was supposed to fund our schools. What happened to that?

The more money the state gets, the more it wastes.

If a person spends beyond their means they can't just go to their boss and say "I spent too much money, can you give me a raise?". They would be laughed at. So, why should our government be able to do it?

Everyone knows we have a fiscal crisis. It simply wasn't the appropriate time for Brown to have a Cap and Trade and other silly programs that should have been tabled for now.

Parents Considering Legal Action Over School Yoga

It's sad how paranoid and narrow-minded people can be. "They're afraid the classes MAY (emphasis mine) be a form of religious indoctrination that promotes Hinduism...". Talk about helicopter parents jumping the gun! The LMSVSD had a yoga segment during PE a few years ago. My daughter loved it! She came home raving about it and the health benefits. Kids are under a lot of stress these days with schoolwork and sports or other extracurricular activities. This is a great way for them to learn a positive way to release stress and to keep their core strong and muscles stretched to help them from getting sports injuries. Not ONCE during those classes did anyone promote Hinduism. Even if they did teach some of the dogmas of the religion, it doesn't hurt anyone to learn about other cultures and religions. It's called tolerance. And, in the end, all you can do is teach your children. They will choose their own religion or possibly none at all. I was raised by atheists and I am a Christian. We raised my daughter as a church-going Christian and she's an atheist. We don't put her down or harangue her into attending church. We accept her. As a teenager, she's exploring her sense of self as do all teens.
