Letter: The last thing we need from government is more laws


I’m sorry, but I have to respond to Bob Richards opinion you printed Wed. Nov. 8th.

Here is another person who thinks the government can fix everything by passing more laws, murder is already against the law! Bob is aware that no laws can stop earthquakes or wildfires, our leaders can only help after they have occurred.

This horrible shooting could have been prevented if the government had of told their other divisions that this man was so violent he was kicked out of the military.

He cracked his own step-son’s skull in the past, (no gun used then), what law are they going to pass for that? We all need to be aware of what’s going on around us, then do something about it! It’s hard to stop evil, but we need to try, if you don’t fear or believe in GOD’s judgment, no law will matter.

So people who don't believe in god are criminals? Two hardcore atheists I have known are probably the two most law abiding and moral individuals I have ever met. They don't believe in god but they do believe in government, they have way too much faith in government for my taste, but I'm old school pioneer stock, we prefer our governments small and close to the people. Close enough to where the peasants can march to the seat of government with pitchforks and torches, if need be. Not everyone finds it necessary to believe in a higher power (unless you consider logic and reason higher powers) in order to obey earthly laws. As for me, I agree with Sheriff Cooley on "O Brother Where Art Thou": "The law? The law is a human institution."
