Letters to the Editor

From the week of November 28, 2002

NRA members seem to feel that they can take aim at anyone who cares to criticize them. On November 5, did we vote to ban free speech?

The Second Amendment only works if we also protect the First Amendment.

More target practice: There are so few places for the public to go shoot, it has become a real problem. The Cherry Creek range often has a waiting list. The Highway 7 range recently closed, as the land became too valuable to developers and recently sold out. All the major gun clubs have waiting lists. I applaud Owens's office for trying to find places to put ranges.

When Wuss Comes to Worse

Of mouse and men: Jason Heller uses these words in his November 21 Critic's Choice on Owen: "...the wuss-rock frontier now populated by the likes of Modest Mouse and Jimmy Eat World...."

I'd really like to hear how he qualifies that remark, at least as far as Modest Mouse is concerned. Why, exactly, are they "wuss rock"?
