New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 26, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Opinions Dave Kramer. Editor and Publisher Jim Webre. Managing Editor Page 4 Heraid-Zeitung New Braunfels, Texas Editorials Our fundraising is fun New Braunfels Lions Clubs May 16 will sponsor their annual Broom and Mop Sale, an event that raises money for various Lions projects in support of the blind. The sale is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Courtyard Shopping Center between Pen Foods and Polar Bear and offers more than the finest in American-made brooms and mops, it is a hefty fund raiser for the civic clubs that have made a tradition of projects to help those who have lost or never had the sense of sight. On the same day. The Conservation Society and our law enforcement and business communities will sponsor their own events. The society's annual May Fest Celebration begins that morning and the “2nd Annual Cops and Robbers Softball Tournament, this year benefitting the drive to establish an emergency children s shelter, that same day fills Comal Park with drawings, athletic events, helicopter fly-ins and games and prizes. Later next month senior citizens organizations across the state will actively promote Senior Citizens Month and their attempt to make more self-supporting programs previously funded through state and federal block grants and entitlements. Non-profit activities of all kinds need the support of their local communities to work and prosper. It’s nice the think that when New Braunfels and Comal County turn out to help others, we can be so positive and so much fun at the same time. Grant us the wisdom to know when not to shoot A bill that would allow citizens to carry handguns in public is an interesting proposition Most of us learned the wild west meant men were w ise to remain a silent as the Peacemaker on the other guy’s hip lest the first go off half cocked and the second fully so As society became more secure and civilized. Americans got away from the notion that God didn't make all people equal. Col Samuel Colt did We started leaving our weapons at home because we didn t need them with organized police protection and the belief that mutual disarmament was more pleasant and safer than gun barrel courtesy. Conservative law enforcement officials view the bill with something like chagrin. They believe what will happen if the general citizenry can legal!> go about their social and profes sional dealings with guns is that there will be an increase in deaths and injury because people who otherwise would reconsider going home and getting their pistol would have the lethal last word at their fingertips It is now legal to carry a shotgun or rifle in your pickup Responsible shootists pursue their hobbies with silhouettes and non-living targets w hile others rest and relax by hunting These avocations are and should tx* allowed because they are no more or less than bowling, sailing or other recreation except the tools of the activity also happen to be things designed to penetrate things w ith a high-speed metal slug Should the bill that would allow carrying of handguns by the general public become law. a wise amendment to the bill would be an appropriation to augment programs for teaching the proper use and care of firearms If as many of us begin packing iron as once did. we will have to regain the skills and wisdom of men and women who knew first-hand what carry mg a gun meant Your Representatives Ronald Reagan President of the United States The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Wast-ingtpn, D C 20500 U S Sen Phil Gramm United States Senate 370 Russell Senate Bldg Washington.
