Let docs address Glocks and save lives

Florida bans doctors from asking patients is they own guns. They could lose their medical licenses if they do. State lawmakers buckled under pressure from the NRA. But the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals should overturn this First Amendment violation — and health hazard.

Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine attacks

I was appalled by Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine’s glib and feckless trashing of Miami Herald writer Jenny Staletovich and South Florida’s foremost research scientist and educator in the field of climate change and sea level rise, Harold Wanless.

The June 24 editorial, Congress just can’t get its act together, missed several points. First, the 5 million undocumented immigrants are not “law abiding,” — they have already broken the law by being here illegally. While they may obey our laws while here, it doesn’t erase their initial offense.
