FEEDBACK:  My three cents on guns

FEEDBACK: My three cents on guns

George Graf: I am not a pro- or anti-gun guy. My issue is the continual felons who are arrested and one of their charges always seems to be the possession of a firearm.

I would like to see a mammoth penalty for those who have made the firearm available to the felon. Seems many girlfriends and family members are the providers. If they get harsh penalties, maybe they will cease the practice coupled with anonymous protection.

FEEDBACK: More than college-educated women; special elections

Irene Gale, Myrtle Beach: I like most of your ideas, but I disagree that this is for college-educated women in a certain age group. As a recent newcomer from free state of Maryland and not a graduate, I vehemently disagree. Yes, women are the answer, but any woman who is appalled by the state and country falling to Republican lies can do her part.” Also, a letter on SC-5.

FEEDBACK: Readers say it’s time to change rules for nurse practitioners

From Helen Ngigi, Smyrna: This new legislation S.C. Senate bill 345 would go a long way in reducing costs to the state of S.C., and keep patients out of the emergency room. This bill is very important in helping improve the health of all patients, especially those in rural areas. Nurse practitioners have a proven record of providing quality care to their patients with chronic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma, among others.” Other letters from Dr. John MacLaurin and nurse Alison MacLeod
