Trump should use facts in all situations, not some

By using real data to make a proclamation, President Trump has finally shown he might be up to the task. Imposing death penalties for opioid pushers has been shown to result in a reduced opioid problem in some countries. In this country, along with the usual suspects, we’d be rid of some unscrupulous health professionals and probably a few CEOs. Taking this new way of using facts to make decisions, an obvious next step would be to make sensible changes to our NRA-written laws about guns. You know, “because we will all be safer.” We all have seen statistics showing countries that create a culture with far less reliance on guns have much a lower incidence of gun deaths. I am so excited to know we will have positive movement towards a better society. If this doesn’t happen, then I’m marching, making change and voting with those kids from Florida.


Majority in Ga. back Gold Dome’s actions

In the front-page story, “Social issues casting harsh glare on state” (News, March 4), Scott Trubey opines that the “spat with Delta and the NRA, and the contentious religious liberty bill … have combined to cast another harsh glare on the Peach State.” Mr. Trubey needs to write his articles, giving his opinion of what our state politicians are doing, for the Op-Ed section, rather than the front page. He must have forgotten the politicians were elected by the majority, and they are acting and doing what the majority of Georgians elected them to do. What they have done with the Delta issue, and what they may do with other bills in the Legislature, may look like a harsh glare to Mr. Trubey and the AJC and possibly Amazon, but the “glare” is precisely what the majority of Georgians want it to reflect.
