Bullet Points 

Pin It

First, you cannot sell guns on eBay [“Gun Shy,” Hits & Misses, March 31, City Weekly], seeing as it is a violation of the 1968 Gun Control Act. It’s also a corporate decision by eBay.

Second, while I respect the right of the paper to not have gun ads, I believe that the citizens of your state have a right not to read your paper any longer. At least, that’s how I handle my local paper, the Atlanta Journal (anti) Constitution, anyhow. They have shown a propensity to be anti-gun, and now they’re losing money for it. Readership is down, as well as trust in the local paper.

Editor’s note: It was a website, KSL.com—not a newspaper—that was reviewing its policy as to whether or not to allow classified ads for firearms. City Weekly currently has no policy that prohibits ads for firearms from appearing in the Classifieds section.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
