Here we go again


Late last night there was a shots fired call to the
area of 15th and Farnum streets. That makes 6 calls
this week and it is getting old. We haven’t heard
many details yet other than the fact that said
shots were fired.

Should this trend continue someone is going to get
shot while sitting, or sleeping, in their own home.
These shootings have mostly been late night/early
morning events but a few have not.

So before the protests start we’d like to throw
something against the wall and see if it sticks.
Those committing these shootings are NOT legal gun
owners. They did not go through background checks
and they have not taken any handgun safety courses
or had formal training.

They also have no conscience and do not worry if
anyone will get hurt or killed nor care if they are
arrested for their actions. Then they claim to be

confused with legal gun owners who have had the
background checks, have had training, and do have

in any way stop the nonsense.

We will say again that it is time for personal
responsibility to be required. Even a loaded gun
cannot hurt you unless someone pulls the trigger.
So stop blaming the gun and start blaming the
Comments are always welcome.

    It’s crazy, when I’m at the Lion’s hall for a weekly dance I hear gunshots all the time. My sis says they are firecrackers.. but firecrackers w/o any reason for them??? Also I once heard this loud bang near our house but it was something else..

    it would be nice. Either that or if the majority spoke up about the nonsense.

    it seems like the whole world has gone crazy.

    Dave Hereid
    for Mayor of Davenport

    Stop Gluba and Klipsch
    We the people of Davenport can stop Mayor Bill Gluba and Frank Klipsch from wasteful spending on special interest projects that will cost the residents like myself Millions of dollars.
    Mayor Bill Gluba and Frank Klipsch, want to cut budgets to Police and Fire to finance their special interest projects.
    Don’t take my word for it, do the research, I have.

    We need to get back to:
    Basic Services
    Roads and Sewers (no more Band-Aid fixes and done the right way).
    Police and Fire (no more budget cuts, protect our City).
    Development (local labor and skilled trade. Bring good paying jobs that are much needed. Keeping Davenport money in Davenport).
    Stop wasteful spending.
    Schools (stop talking more action).
    Feel free to contact Dave Hereid.
