We're all safer because these people abhor gun ownership

To The Daily Sun,

Yikes! What incredible reactions to the presidential election results have been penned in recent letters.
Ms. Andersen's "best shot" (condemning as yet UNTRIED, proposed tax and med plans), in my opinion, was taken with an unloaded gun. The ACA had to "be passed" before we knew what was in it. Now we know — how's that working out?
The Veverka/Vervaeke/Craycraft/Hightower recent raging rants against conservatives are not unlike an electric guitar amp, that's volume nob is locked on "10," and the player is oblivious to the fact that the guitar is out of tune. So much vitriol and hatred!
These are excellent examples of "Conservophobia." I do take comfort in the knowledge that these people most likely abhor gun ownership; we are all much safer for that.
Bottom line folks: the election is over. Trump won. Get over it! It is time to "move on," to choose between being a problem or part of the solution to "Make America Great Again."

Boys & Girls Club needs $65,000 more in pledges by Dec. 31

To The Daily Sun,
The Lakes Region Boys & Girls Endowment Fund trustees would like to thank the generous donors who have pledged $35,000 towards our $100,000 matching challenge. We still need $65,000 more in pledges before year end.
The Endowment Fund was created approximately two years ago with a goal of raising $1 million to secure the future of the Boys & Girls Club. We are nearing the halfway point, with more than $500,000 raised. The $100,000 matching gift from the Tony & Gladys Sakowich Foundation will bring us even closer to this mission of ensuring the club can provide all children, especially those who may be at-risk, with a safe and supervised environment where they learn, play, are fed and cared for by committed Lakes Region staffers and community volunteers.
To make a one-time tax-deductible donation or an annual pledge please contact Chris Emond, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (603) 568-0923.
