Galt teachers may soon be trained to use and recognize different types of guns in a class sponsored by the Galt Police Department.

Do we need to add more gun control laws? What good will more gun control laws do if they are not enforced? I have had my dad's .45 automatic pistol in my possession for the past 40 years, and I have never killed anyone with it. I haven't even fired it. I will never fire it unless someone tries entering my house uninvited, and then it may be put to use as it was intended.

There are so many bank and other armed robberies that it seems
an easy way to make a living — and no taxes. Take the guns out of
the hands of law-abiding citizens so only crooks will have access
to them, and then raise taxes so more police are on the street to
protect citizens who are not allowed to protect themselves; wait 30
minutes, they will be there soon.
