State should prohibit late-term abortionsWhy should the state allow non-doctors to endanger the health of women or to even assault babies intentionally and their mothers. Do we need this bill tied to the budget, or is this the only way something like this can be snuck through?Raymond SierzchulaBuffalo

Ban on assault weapons must be reinstated nowThe Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution had no concept of today’s weaponry and today’s society for that matter. I don’t think they would approve of how the Second Amendment has been misinterpreted and misused for political purposes.The death toll in all of these shootings certainly could not have been achieved without th…

Law might have saved Florida shooting victimsOnce again, a community has been devastated by the tragedy of gun violence. My heart aches for the families in Parkland, Fla. This school shooting – the worst since Sandy Hook – is a stark reminder that our children will not be safe until lawmakers do something.There is a “red flag” law in some states that could have prevented t…

Citizens should not have access to assault weaponsYet again we mourn victims of a homegrown mass shooting. I am not a rabid anti-gun citizen but for me, and millions of others, there is one simple question that has yet to be answered: Why are non-police or other civilly sanctioned agents permitted to purchase assault weapons?Kathleen RogHamburg

Condolences, candles won’t stop shootingsMass shooting again, AR-15 used! Enough with the condolences, flowers, candles, praying and excuses. Nothing is going to change while this administration is in power. President Trump is a pathetic liar, a draft-dodger and a spineless, puppet for the Republican-controlled Congress. We have to bring back decency to the White House. Jo…

It’s precisely the time to discuss gun controlSeventeen more high schoolers killed. More broken hearts and a broken community. President Trump, after 18 hours, finally gave an empty and irrelevant (according to one Parkland person) speech to recognize the tragedy. But he and Sen. Marco Rubio do not want us to jump to conclusions. There will be plenty of time for debate lat…

President ought to use his own money for paradeMany letters have been written to The News criticizing President Trump. He now wants to spend somewhere around $30 million for a military parade because he was impressed by a parade he saw in France. We have homeless veterans, people who can’t afford decent food for their children, people who don’t have money to heat their hom…

Founders never envisioned our modern-day weaponryThey didn’t have assault rifles when they wrote the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, but they certainly had field cannons.Does anyone actually believe that the Founding Fathers intended to allow a cannon in anyone’s private home?The courts need to revisit their interpretation of the Second Amendment, and with our c…

Let WNY voters decide who will oppose CollinsSo, Democratic leaders from the eight counties of the 27th Congressional District have usurped the very democratic process that the party represents. Unbelievable! And their choice as a candidate isn’t even a current resident of the district? Are these folks so disconnected from the challenges to our system and the contemporary …
