Dear editor:

Sometimes I wonder why I went and fought for this country.

Once the government throws us away like trash, we no longer exist.

Being a veteran, disabled and homeless means nothing to the government or you so called American people.

Dear editor:

The House passed a non-threatening, sensible “peoples’ rights vs. gun rights” bill to the Senate June 8.

The Senate party line is holding firm against it.

Recently, Sen. Mitch McConnell said on TV that any such legislation “must represent the culture of the American people.”

On June 9 on the 6 a.m. news, CBS KRIS TV in Corpus Christi conducted a viewer survey to explore our gun culture.

The survey resulted in 59% of us in the several Republican counties voted for the bill, and 41% against.

This is our culture in the Republican State of Texas.

We the people know three things about our culture:

• (Appropriate) people with (appropriate) guns do no kill (innocent) people.

• (Inappropriate) people with (inappropriate) guns do kill (innocent) people.

• And, we know, surely our Congress must be capable of writing appropriate legislation to meet both of the above aspects s of our culture.
