Letter of the Week: Guns, abortion and saving lives

“Missouri Sen. Will Kraus supported a law that requires a three-day waiting period for abortions,” writes Tom Goddard of Lake Tapawingo.  “The stated purpose was that might give the woman time to change her mind and save a life. However, Sen. Kraus and the majority of politicians in Jefferson City refuse to even consider a bill that would require a background check and waiting period for purchasers of firearms at gun shows.”
