We need to dig deeper to find cause of gun deaths
(Editorial ~ 01/26/19)
Gun control advocates pounce on each and every study that monitors gun deaths. But those very same advocates who want stricter gun control never look beyond the surface to honestly address gun violence in America. Like clockwork, a new study is out this week listing gun deaths across the country. And Missouri is among the states cited for the fifth-highest gun deaths in America...

Yes, I was over at Express Care and I kind of overheard a guy hurt his shoulder and the doctor from Missouri Delta was saying he needed physical therapy but he had Medicaid. I overheard the doctor say ďyou might as well give that up because the state wonít take the Medicaid but we would do this program and then we get a MRI and you will probably have to have surgery. But if you get physical therapy it would probably be 50 percent and you wouldnít have to have surgery. Medicaid wonít pay it.Ē Iím sitting here watching TV, seeing all these illegal immigrants get all this free medical stuff. What about Americans? As a United States citizen they would rather give health care and all kinds of benefits to illegal immigrants instead of us Americans. Itís a shame. I hope the gentleman gets physical therapy and doesnít have to go through surgery. Heís an older gentleman. Iím just saying this is a shame. And we should be ashamed of ourselves in the state of Missouri. The American people, itís citizens should be ashamed. We keep voting these people in and they keep doing it. Around here you donít see that many illegal immigrants but youíre seeing more. You go to St. Louis up in that area, thatís all you see now. Farmers and everything. Itís a shame. I hope that gentleman gets help. And I am a taxpayer too so I have a right to complain.
