- Thanks Joe Manchin for doing the right thing and not allowing the NRA to buy you off like a lot of other politicians. It may not be popular with some other West Virginians, but it was the right thing to do. Shelley Capito seems to like the NRA money.
- This bloated, bumbling bureaucracy we call the federal government cannot enforce the gun laws we have and they want more laws - just to add more bureaucrats and drive us further in debt and accomplish nothing.
- The NRA should revoke Joe Manchin's membership.
- West Virginians can send a clear message to Washington, D.C. If a state that sends nothing but Democrats to the Senate recalls a Democrat for tampering with our Second Amendment, no attempt will ever again be made to dispose of your gun ownership rights. It's time to let Joe go.
- It's time to start a recall movement to get Joe Manchin out of office. For no longer than he has been in the U.S. Senate, he is working to dismantle your Second Amendment rights - just another typical West Virginia liberal Democrat.
- To protect and serve in Madison, W.Va., a 90-year-old man was pulled over, slammed to the ground, handcuffed, backup was called and then he was handcuffed to the town cruiser and charged with obstruction. This occurred in the middle of the day, with many witnesses. The video should explain the officer's intent and why so much anger was used toward this 90-year-old Christian man.
- The qualifications of Sheriff Crum's widow or President Obama don't begin to compare to the lack of qualifications that George W. Bush had. It will take many years and several presidents, Democrat or Republican, to clean up the mess he created.
- "Jonathan Scalise, owner of Ammunition Storage Components, also of New Britain, said he's received offers from Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Texas. He said he will carefully evaluate the impact of a move on his business and its 150 employees." Why has West Virginia not asked this ammo company to relocate to West Virginia?
- If the new background check laws were in place 10 years ago, most, if not all, of the mass shootings that have taken place since would have still happened. It's a mental health issue, not a gun issue. It is pretty obvious treating mental health issues with medication isn't working very well.
- Redoing the 2000 and 2004 elections would be great. Replacing the "what's-best-for-the-party" Democrats in Congress with "what's-best-for-the-country" Republicans would have made a big difference in where we are today. Banks wouldn't have failed, and taxes would be lower. Employment would be up. Economy would be good. Gas prices would be lower.
- To the person scared of the NRA and how many people subscribe to their beliefs: Our beliefs are directly tied to the Constitution and particularly the Second Amendment. We aren't going away with almost 5 million members and growing. If you can't handle what our Constitution stands for, then I'm sure Iran, North Korea or Cuba would welcome you with open arms.
- I read in the paper about the cost of college tuition going up. Coaches' salaries aren't paid by the schools; they come from the alumni. That is why different coaches make different salaries like they do.
- Obama's budget gives him a blank check to do whatever he wants to spend money and increase taxes. He doesn't intend to ever balance the budget. It puts a cap on retirement income.
- Why don't the Republicans take out trash to pay for their lunch or mow lawns? They are so overpaid anyway.
- Yes, it is a good idea to disarm law-abiding citizens. Leave the guns in the hands of the government, gangs and thugs. That makes us all a lot safer and makes a lot of sense.
- When is the city of Charleston going to start cracking down on people whose back yard, side yard and front yard look like "Sanford and Son"? It's not very pleasant living next door to that.
- Sen. Daniel Hall from Wyoming County is so far off base. There are police at the state Capitol, so why not let them check bags and scan people at the doors? It would make everyone feel safer. Think about it.
- Obama's new budget will attack 401(k)s and Roth IRAs and all other retirement plans people have. He wants to put a cap on what a person saves toward retirement. That sounds like communism.
- The W.Va. Symphony Orchestra, guest conductor and artists were outstanding, and so was the Broadway show. What an enjoyable night.
- The worst Dunbar mayor in history is one term and on his way out. The citizens there should be elated. He spent the city's surplus and doubled city fees. He added unnecessary employees to the payroll, including two building inspectors.
- The irony of that girl is she went to the press and said the things she did about the George Washington speaker and she is getting a lawyer to sue. She claims she has lost her First Amendment rights, but that is what she is trying to do to the speaker.
- The NRA and other special interest groups own our legislators.
- So W.Va. legislators really think the answer to gun deaths is for every citizen to be armed and to walk down the street carrying guns? When is it going to end? It is crazy, just crazy.
- God is here for every step you take in life. Trust Him.
- American people pull together during a tragedy like Boston. But this is no longer our country because of terrorists. Think back how wonderful things were 40 years ago. It is sad.
- Thank you to the person who called about the woodpile on South Park Road. There are hundreds of them across from Quarry Creek Nursing home. Children are playing on them after school. Danny Jones, please clean up this place and have the pallets put in the city landfill. Please send a Daily Mail photographer to check this out.
- The address of the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center is P.O. Box 9300, Morgantown, WV 26506-9300. That is where my mother received her cancer treatment, and it is a wonderful facility. This is where you can make donations.
