Gun permits

In reply to the letter on open carry, it is true that many persons do not apply for a permit because it is a form of registration. The government may not know what type of firearm you have, but they will know, unless you used a borrowed firearm to take a class, that you have a firearm. Many do not want to go through the hassle of reapplying every few years for a permit.

This significant collection represents many voices through the years it spans -- from 1514 to ...

After giving much thought to the article "Jones targets KershawHealth at Tuesday KCC meeting" in the February 15, 2013, edition of the Chronicle-Independent, remaining silent is no longer an option. The fact that Mr. Jones voted to approve the purchase of two ambulances for KershawHealth is overshadowed by his deplorable attack on the administration and members of the KershawHealth Board of Trustees.
