We want gun debate, not 'Bible Week' -- Gary Tribbey

We want gun debate, not 'Bible Week' -- Gary Tribbey


I want to thank our Republican legislators for taking a stand and tackling the tough issues of "Bible Week" and the Christmas tree controversy. I am sorry that they got their feelings hurt.

But most of us -- 80%, according to a recent poll -- were more concerned with background checks and red-flag laws to protect us and our loved ones, which the GOP perceived as trivial.

The Republicans have sold out to the National Rifle Association and gun lobbyists. I at least thought they would have the courage to discuss the issues instead of immediately shutting down debate.

I have one question: What is the going rate for a life these days? I hope it is more than 30 pieces of silver.

Gary Tribbey, Sun Prairie
