Letters to the editor, January 1

Give the truth

Larry Beck, [DRC, Dec. 10] it is obvious you searched and picked the statistics you wanted. You failed to look at the countries, states and the cities where extreme gun violence occurs.

If you look where crime is highest, you will have gangs, drugs and the most strict gun laws banning firearms, especially handguns.

You will also find that the murders are mainly in the large minority neighborhoods. They are in cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Atlanta and Houston.

Do Denton and the thousands of cities like us have a drug or gang problem? What you state as fact is not the whole truth.

You can have your beliefs, period. You can also keep them to yourself, period. Give us the truth and your credibility will be recognized.

James Penton, Denton
