Letter writer is off the mark on shot aimed at gun shows

It used to be amusing, but now that our Constitution is under attack by the socialists that are now in charge, I cringe when I see letters by people like Judy Ann Kidd (The Goshen News Feb. 27) who claim a person can purchase a firearm at a gun show without any checks at all.

Let me state up front this is not a true statement. One has to go through the same checks at a show as if he or she were in a storefront. There is no loophole, period. That is a myth perpetuated by the lapdog media.

The Chicago newspaper that made the false claim Chicago guns come from Indiana gun shows is being irresponsible for perpetuating this lie. Of course the same newspaper will not admit the city’s punitive gun laws do not work, either.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
I think all students should be required to pay for their school meals
