Letters to the Editor
Continued from previous pogo
number of firearms available to criminals. Currently, many criminals acquire firearms by buying them from unscrupulous individuals who buy weapons in one state and sell them on the streets in other states.
However, by using the social security number system, very few people would be willing to buy guns for criminals and risk being identified through their social security numbers.
Additionally, there would be fewer stolen guns since those people would properly secure their guns rather than run the risk of ending up on some government list
Such a system may reduce the amount of distrust that has developed between gun owners and. law enforcement personnel.

Thank you both for your efforts.

Local news of interest to Canyon Lake reader
I don’t write letters to the editor ... at least, no until now.
It seems to me that all or our news media gives us superb coverage of any and all bad news. So, that must be what sells newspapers.
But for what it is worth, I can get all the bad news I can handle from the big guys.
I read the Herald-Zeitung for
local interest and that brings me to the point — what happened to the Joe James column?
It seems to have vanished without a trace or note.
Gerry Law Canyon Lake
Columnist off target with gun commentary
Poor Gary. By his own admission, he appears to be plagued with doubts and misunderstandings.
He questions the need for the Second Amendment, but fails to read and properly interpret “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” Mr. Carroll probably doesn’t know that 37 states provide qualified citizens the right to legally Cary handguns.
In most instances, when the law is enacted in a state, there is a noticeable decline in crime.
I question his rationale regarding “shooting other people.” The proposed law is structured to allow qualified citizens the legal
right to carry a handgun for protection if they desire.
If he doesn’t want to, that’s up to him.
I am neither “a fool or a Communist" and I take exception to the statement. Let’s hope he is never faced with the need to defend himself against an armed criminal.
Be assured, Gary, they are armed. I strongly support our law enforcement personnel.
However, they cant be every
where, and often are unable to get to the scene until the crime has been committed.
Mr. Carroll questions my defense of the Second Amendment and the need for it Perhaps he needs to consider abuse of the First Amendment I encourage anyone interested in passage of the “Right to Cany” bill in Texas to contact your state legislators now.
