As the national debate over gun control heats up, Minnesotans are taking sides, and state legislation is also under consideration. The Daily Planet offers a forum for discussion of local, state and national issues. We invite you to contribute an article, opinion, commentary or comment. Share your thoughts in a quick video or submit your contributions to the Free Speech Zone.
A reminder about the guidelines for publication:
1) We want your original, thoughtful contributions, not reprints or reposts from somewhere else.
2) Please use your real name and, when you register as a TC Daily Planet user, or when sending a contribution to firstname.lastname@example.org, please state what Minnesota city or county you live in.
3) This is a Minnesota forum — because of limited resources, we cannot commit to publishing responses from outside the state.
4) We moderate before publishing to ensure compliance with minimal standards. We will not publish articles, blogs or comments that are overtly racist, probably libelous, threatening, or personal attacks of the “I know him personally and he is a crook/liar/shoplifter/child abuser” variety. Some name-calling falls in the latter category.
