Gun control again at forefront after shooting

A lone gunman, equipped with a military-type assault rifle, took 17 lives and injured another 22 in a school shooting in Florida last week.
There wasn’t even a final tally of the dead and wounded before proponents and opponents took to their Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts to debate whether it was time for stricter gun control in our country.
Proposals for stricter control ranged from better screening for licensing — including background checks on private sales between individuals — to banning assault rifles to an outright ban on guns altogether.

Housley: tough when needed, ready to work together

Work hard, play fair and do the right thing.
Those are the tenets that Karin Housley’s father drilled into her during her childhood, and she still lives by them today.
Housley, so far the lone Republican running for former U.S. Sen. Al Franken’s seat, spoke briefly to Glencoe-area residents at a meeting of the Greater Minnesota Republican Women Tuesday night, Feb. 13.
Housely said her mother also had her own values to instill into her daughter. Her mother was the daughter of a Lutheran minister, and told Housely, “make sure God is always first in your life.”
