Ban weapons made for war

To the editor,
(This letter is in response to the letter from Michael Buchek in the Oct. 22 Walworth County Sunday.)

After World War II, the Army’s research found that the chief predictor of casualties was the number of shots fired in a short period of time. The military asked arms manufacturers to develop a lightweight weapon with a large detachable magazine that could be used to inflict extreme damage. The AR-15 became the military’s standard-issue weapon. Weapons similar to the AR-15 are available to any citizen along with magazines that carry up to 100 rounds.

A maximum wage makes sense

To the editor,
Over a half-century ago I was a teenager and the minimum wage was 90 cents an hour. It has been raised dozens of times since then, and every time all other wages were raised across the board. Of course, the cost of living raised every time as well.
