Mail Call - April 15

April 14, 2013

“I think the Hagerstown caller on April 4 was wrong in claiming 60 to 70 percent want the ban on assault weapons, and 91 percent want the background checks. The legislators are smart enough to know not to vote for it, or they won’t get re-elected. That should give you an idea of what percent of Americans don’t want either one.”
— Maugansville

“I cannot believe that I watched our city council discuss a dog park for 20 minutes. Get your act together and clean up ... downtown Hagerstown. Make Hagerstown a place to want to live in, not bring your dogs and worry about that kind of stuff. Are you kidding me?”
— Hagerstown

“This is about the comment about the mean mother. Today’s parents, whether they’re together, divorced or whatever, what you see is roommates. They’re their roommates ... and what it is is, they’re too busy on their phones and watching their TV and scrolling on their phones, that the child ends up ... it’s their job to do everything around the house. They’re not kids, they’re roommates, and it’s sad because they’re not being taught anything.”
— Hagerstown

“You people complain about 4 cents gas tax, but don’t complain about the oil companies charging $1.50 more than the price should be. If the Republicans would stop blocking President Obama’s bill to take oil off of futures market, gas would only be $2.25 gallon. His bill has been sitting in Congress for over two years, with no action.”
— Hagerstown

“I need to move. The current Maryland representatives do not reflect my views, my family’s views or anyone else I know’s views. How can Mr. Martin O’Malley say the people overwhelmingly support his newest gun policies or his latest gas taxes? People of Maryland better wake up because our Maryland legislators have been very, very busy lately. A year from now when you pay more in gas, then you’ll see what they have done.”
— Hagerstown

“Gun control is a step taken before a murder happens. All the police and court action happens after the murder, and does not stop it. It is past time to take many actions to stop the crimes in this country, and not just catch and punish after they happen. I know citizens’ rights would be affected, but that should not bother an innocent person.”
— Waynesboro, Pa.

“There was an excellent quote in Thursday’s Mail Call, from a person in Greencastle about ‘What is a mean mother?’ The reason no one follows these guidelines anymore is our country has become a more tolerant society. We’re supposed to tolerate everything, whether it be good or bad. Plus, with the economy — thank you, U.S. government ... there’s no father or mother at home to raise the children correctly. It’s left up to the schools and the friends that they hang with on the street. The country’s in sad shape.”
— Hagerstown
