Letters to the editor for Saturday, July 9, 2016

Vote no on Question 1

Thanks to Obama’s lawless open border policy, crime and terror attacks in America have spiked. The influx of Jihadis and gangbangers is reflecting badly on Democrats this election year, an issue that’s given Donald Trump political traction.

Increased street violence and radical Islam don’t threaten the Democrats’ political power, but conservative voters do. That’s why the Dems are pushing Ballot Question 1: It shifts the blame for their dangerous policies to “the easy availability of guns” and punishes their political enemies by criminalizing transactions between law-abiding gun owners.

Don’t fall for Democrat scapegoating that will only disarm potential victims of violence. Vote no on Ballot Question 1 in November.
