CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE:Are we becoming a nation of pansies? You have to ban the kid for being too good, he can't pitch against his 12-year-old buddies because he's GOOD? I'll bet the people who pushed the ban are liberals.

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: Beck mocked the mayor’s agenda of controlling New Yorkers' lives with a gun ban, soda ban, popcorn ban, salt ban, trans fat ban, bike share (but not for people over 260 pounds). Beck doesn't owe anybody an apology, he's revealing the ugly truth.
The only thing offensive here is Bloomberg's agenda.
Glenn Beck roused the National Rifle Association's annual convention this weekend with his attacks on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but he also aroused criticism by a major Jewish group for depicting the mayor giving what appears to be a a Nazi salute.

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE:And Chicago has the most restrictive gun laws in the country. Is it a coincidence that inner cities are rife with crime and those cities have tough gun laws?

According to NeighborhoodScout's statistics, that area has a rate of 116.56 violent crimes per 1,000 people, meaning a resident of that section of Auburn Gresham has a 1 in 9 chance of being the victim of a crime within a year.
