To the Editor: Letter writer generates fear about gun limitations

Having been called out as an "internet troll" and "animal" by Doyle Phillips, I feel compelled to respond. Mr. Phillips is angry because I called out the bile in his June 4 letter, in which he personally attacked both Dr. William Feeman and Professor V.N. Krishnan for writing letters criticizing America's fetishized culture of guns and the undeniable wake of death it has been leaving. Second Amendment extremists are a mounting terrorist threat in America, most dramatically reflected in the murder of three individuals just outside Las Vegas over the weekend. Our politicians have been able to do nothing, and insatiable gun extremists like Mr. Phillips grow more angry and unbalanced in their protestations after every shooting, sowing fear in the rest of the population, which I believe is their aim.

To the Editor: Neighborhood problems cited in Hammansburg

I'm writing as I'm tired of what is going on in Hammansburg. I have had an ongoing problem there. From my house being broken into, landscaping being stolen, neighbor trespassing, and tires being disposed of on my property.
I have had the Sheriff out here several times. But all I get is excuses, things like; if you didn't see it you can't do anything. I was also told that I had to have my property surveyed, which I have owned this property since 1989.
I have done everything possible to protect my property. I have put up cameras, put in alarms, and secured the windows. With the last two incidents I haven't called the Sheriff as I feel what the use is. As the Sheriff don't want to do their job, or something.

To the Editor: Bearing arms is individual right - not collective right
Written by Doyle H. Phillips

In viewing the Sentinel's website I find the issue of gun control has engendered a lively debate, and that is a healthy thing. From his latest missive, I see Dr. Feeman sliding further into paranoia with talk of "packing heat," and an "NRA playbook." His rhetorical question about people dying because of concealed carry permit holders bespeaks a lack of understanding both of permit holders and of the intent of the Founding Fathers in including the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights.
If you read the debate surrounding the inclusion of the 2nd Amendment, you will plainly see this is intended to be an individual right; not a collective right, as our web troll stubbornly asserts. The collective rights argument is simply an artifice, created by gun banners when their movement began to gain traction.

To the Editor: BG accused of misrepresenting electric costs
Written by Sally Medbourn Mott

Recently, in a letter from the mayor's office to "Concerned Citizens," there appears the following statement:
"A recent Letter to the Editor stated that the current average residential electric bill is $100 per month, which is false."
Here is the exact statement from my May 21, 2015 Letter to the Editor, which is not "false":
"If the electric portion of your monthly utility bill averages, say, $100, you will pay an average $105 a month for the rest of 2014."
