The Rant

Saturday, April 27, 2013 - 12:01 am

The Rant is The News-Sentinel's anonymous sound-off forum. The readers' views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of The News-Sentinel.

My credit union is supposedly owned by its members and is there to serve us. It doesn't seem too frugal for it to rent some of the most expensive square footage downtown. … As a member, can I come and watch a ballgame out the window?

They are called “day-time running lights.” Not dusk or dawn running lights. Turn your lights on.

The Senate voted against background checks for gun buyers. We have background checks for employment, car buying and house loans. What is wrong with this picture? Term limits will change all of their thinking. We, as voters and Americans, deserve better. Please vote in the next elections.

The (school) voucher is a monetary gift to you as a family. It doesn't matter that it is paid to the school. You received tax money paid by all to send your kids to a private school. How about a voucher for me so I can buy a new car? Same thing, free money from the state.

Even if feel-good gun control fails to pass this time, proponents will just wait to the next inevitable shooting. Nobody wants to talk about more prosecutions and mandatory sentencing for gun offenses. Liberals hate holding people accountable. It's easier to just go after guns than criminals.

Shame on Sen. Dan Coats for not representing the will of his constituents by voting for the gun background check bill. Congrats to Sen. (Joe) Donnelly standing up to the NRA and all their gun-manufacturer money. History will show he was on the “right” side.

I'm so glad one local TV station presents the news in a professional manner and doesn't bombard you with explanatives and personal opinions. You've got my loyalty.

So much for family entertainment at the downtown stadium. The city is constantly encouraging alcohol consumption … . My family is staying home, thank you.
