A few days ago, there was a Poll question on whether sheriffs should enforce a Federal gun ban. I can't find it now. Does the Search box not work for old Polls -- or was that Poll removed from the site?

No sherriff in West Virginia will not have to worry about whether they are going to uphold a law if one is passed or not as it will not stand up to Constitutional muster if it bans weapons. Heller and McDonld have affirmed that the 2nd Amendment does in fact grant the right to bear arms to citizens.

Terms of service to sign up for comments. Include Abusive,hateful,poor taste, attack of a personal nature, These have all been taken in the comments from your paper. Sorry you must continue to attack the 2 commissioners that are trying to do there job. They are honest law abbiding, tax paying citizens. Unlike others. I think the Assessor needs to do his job. And you and Pamela needs to get a life and this paper needs to quit attacking people personally. Your comments do not adhear to you Terms of Service. Also you need to get a good proof reader for your paper.Shame on You.

Thank you Ken for showing the guts to stand by your oath to uphold the Constitution. Mr. Editor, you call 911 when seconds count, I will call my neighbors, they are here and they have guns. All of Parkersburg is not in the Historical District. Mr. Editor, you have been here a while but you do not know us very well. To follow your choice of hand gestures, double thumbs down to you although in this particular case I would not have chosen that one.

Thumbs UP: For our law officials recognizing our Constitutional Rights.

Thumbs Down: For the Local News failing to recognize that we have not had a vast majority of the problems that the rest of the country faces with our current way of life and recognition of self preservation and personal protection.
