Letter to the editor: Great clarity in story

Posted

I feel compelled to write to commend Vic Vela on his article "Judge upholds state's gun laws" in last week's paper.

His point-counterpoint-ruling format provided great clarity on the issue and ruling. Too often proposed legislation is written with so much complexity - with double and triple negatives - that an individual is hard-pressed to recognize our own position on it. The resulting chaos can hardly be considered an adequately representative vote.

I also want to note that Weld County Sheriff John Cooke deserves to be immediately relieved of office for his intention to perform his duties based on his political agenda rather than on the basis of law.
