    Ninety-eight percent of mass shootings in America since the 1950s, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center, have occurred in gun-free zones. That is why people die, because it’s the place of choice for the mentally ill perps. No one to shoot back.

  • Column: Sheriff’s Indian Land estimates raise parity issue across county

    Friday’s Lancaster News article on law-enforcement costs for an incorporated Indian Land highlights a significant discrepancy in charges for similar services throughout the county.
    Until this year, the sheriff’s office provided law enforcement services for the incorporated area of Heath Springs. When the cost for those services increased from $23,500 to $38,500 earlier this year, Heath Springs chose not to renew the contract.  Presumably, they still receive some level of coverage from the sheriff because they are still part of Lancaster County.

  • Column: Prosecute bureaucrats who fail to put criminals on no-buy list

    In his Sunday column, the editor expressed legitimate concerns about the deaths that have occurred in several recent mass shootings.
