Disagrees with cartoon

Published: Wednesday, May 1, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

The political cartoon published April 22 was completely biased and completely wrong.

The Senate did have a very strong backbone. The fact that enough of the senators stood up to an overbearing President Obama proves it. The gun control bills proposed would do nothing to prevent disasters such as Sandy Hook and only add more bureaucracy to an already bloated federal government.
