Judging from his latest report, Rep. Bill Reiboldt, R-Neosho, has not had any of his constituents tell him that it might be time to take a look at limiting the type of weapons that have been used in killing sprees in Connecticut, Colorado, and elsewhere. All of them have been talking about giving teachers guns, putting armed guards in schools, dealing with mental health issues, and addressing the problem of violence in movies and video games.
In his article, Reiboldt mentions the money being made by those who produce violent video games and movies. Perhaps someone should tell Rep. Reiboldt, that those who manufacture guns are making money, too.
Christmastime is a season for happiness and a time for making fond memories. My hope for you is that your memories will always be pleasant ones. However, we know that for some, this year's holiday season will be anything but pleasant. If you have ever lost a family member or even a close friend around Christmastime, most likely you know the sadness and emptiness that the holidays can bring.
