To the Editor:
At what cost does freedom come? And what are we willing to pay to keep it?
We generally delegate that duty to our armed forces against outside enemies.
Did we ever think the day would come when we would pay a price to have to stand up against the enemy of our freedom coming from our own elected officials?
The latest attempt from our liberal government to chip away at our Second Amendment right to bear arms has resulted in the shut down of the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show scheduled for Feb. 2 to 10.

Gov. Tom Corbett's proposed privatization of state liquor stores is another example of governance by ideology, not reality.
Liquor sales generate $500 million worth of yearly state revenue. But, at a time when the state budget is already thin on revenue, this governor seeks to divest an important asset and set the stage for increased school taxes.
In an attempt to sell his plan, Corbett proposes to make education the beneficiary of proceeds from the sale of liquor stores.
