  • Oct 31, 2014 at 12:01PM

Telling the Woods triplets of North Bend apart these days is far easier than it was, say 17 and a half years ago. You could probably do it just by listening to them talk. “I’m the oldest,” says Ursula, adding after the briefest hesitation, “and the smartest, too.” “She says that all the time,” says Frank (his family calls him by his middle name, Lowell), imitating her, “You should listen to me, I’m the oldest.”

Gun initiative goes too far | Letters

  • Oct 30, 2014 at 5:03PM

Please vote no on I-594. This bill is not about closing loopholes in purchases of firearms, but is about gun control, period. For instance, if I give my guns to my son for safekeeping while I am on vacation, we have broken the law. If I want to teach my wife safe gun handling at any place other than a shooting range, we are criminals. If I teach a youth group about gun safety and let them handle a gun, we are all criminals. That is not about closing loopholes.

  • Oct 28, 2014 at 4:11PM

Two statewide gun measures will be decided in the Nov. 4 election, Initiative 591 and 594. Supporters of the conflicting initiatives claim they are about gun rights and public safety, respectively, but neither issue is as simple as it sounds. Initiative 591, supported by Protect Our Gun Rights (wagunrights.org), prohibits government agencies, including police, from confiscating citizens’ handguns and long guns, without due process, and does not allow the state to implement a background check policy of its own, but to adhere to the federal standard only. The federal standard calls for background checks on all gun sales made at federally licensed retailers.
