To the Editor:
I would like the opinion of the citizens of the United States and President Obama to the problem of the unnecessary killing that has been happening for too many years.
1. The recall of all the rifles that require a magazine of multiple shells and the locking up in an armory only to be used by armed forces in war time.
2. Forbid the sale of guns to families that have any issue of mental illness.

Do you agree that every member of the human species has inherent dignity and rights, among which is the right to life, and that these rights are inherent from the moment of conception? Do you also agree that every pregnant woman deserves the most love and life-affirming support possible?
If so, perhaps you would like to be among the hundreds of inspired men and women who will be making a public statement of solidarity to the Indianapolis area community this February and March that unborn boys and girls and their moms deserve better than abortion.
It has been 40 years since abortion became legal in this country through the Roe vs. Wade decision. Since then over 50 million babies have lost their lives. This equates to 3,200 babies per day. This is a horrific tragedy for our country, the unborn, as well as the women and men that have gone through this without having the truth and support with which to make a real choice and that is the choice for life.
So soon after the anniversary of Martin Luther King, it is very sad to report that 40.2 percent of abortions in the United States are performed on African American women, while they represent only 13 percent of the female population of the country. For more information on how abortion is decimating the African American community and what can be done to stop it, go to www.ProtectingBlackLife.org.

The Indianapolis Colts’ miraculous 45-44 wild card victory over Kansas City on Saturday ended just after 8 p.m. After leaving Lucas Oil Stadium, it took until around midnight for the pounding in my head to subside.
