    What is
    reasonable?

        Reasonable people differ on what is reasonable  Based upon his June 29, 2016 op ed it appears that Mr. Howell considers universal background checks and the use of secret lists to curtail the rights of law abiding citizens as reasonable measures. I respectfully disagree.

  • Honoring our nation’s independence

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    as we come together this Monday to celebrate the 240th year of our nation’s independence, let us take the opportunity to reflect on our Founders’ understanding of our fundamental rights as individuals and their belief that only a system of representative democracy– supported by the rule of law– could guarantee our God-given rights.

     

  • A better way to do the people’s business

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

     

  • Unanimous Declaration

         When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    Businesses help make program
    a success

        On behalf of Bedford County Public Schools I’m writing to express gratitude to area businesses that helped make this year’s Teacher of the Year program a success. This program rewards our top educators each year and would be impossible without the support we’re provided from business owners throughout the community.

    Is it true?

         Thank God they’ve finally abolished the no texting while driving law! What an inconvenience that’s been.
        And also, the old law about coming to a complete stop at a stop sign. What a couple of silly laws to have. I figured there was just not enough money in it to enforce those two laws, let alone the other stupid laws like headlights on when it is raining or no loud music within 50 feet of a business.

  • Taking decisive action to protect and defend our homeland

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • Countering homegrown terrorism

    It was an act of pure evil. On what should have been a quiet Sunday morning, Americans instead woke to the jarring news of a deadly terrorist attack in Orlando. As a nation, we join the Orlando community and the families of the victims in mourning those who were lost and praying for healing. Sadly, it is the latest in a string of terror attacks here in America – plots that have not been carried out by foreign terrorists but by Americans, against Americans, on American soil. It is a stark reminder that the radical beliefs of terrorist groups, like ISIS, are a threat to our freedoms.
