James Pinkerton (Column Right, July 25) makes a valid point that the right-to-life movement should broaden its base rather than focus narrowly on abortion. Yet, school vouchers have nothing to do with being pro-life. On the other hand, many wanted children die every year in this country from gunshot wounds. If the energies and talents within the pro-life organizations could help us keep guns out of the hands of unstable persons, we'd be assured that they are really pro-life and not just anti-abortion.

The present candidates for the office of president are a very disappointing group. A great deal has been said about Social Security, Medicare, education, tax reform, tax credits, etc., yet little, if anything, has been said about foreign policy. What about China, the trade deficit, Russia, NAFTA and nuclear proliferation, all of which have an ultimate bearing on the issues they so eagerly discuss? However, the one foreign policy issue receiving a great deal of attention is that of the fate of young Elian Gonzalez.

Elizabeth Dole is the embodiment of what a marriage team is about in America. She is a role model for "Love is not jealous." So, too, is Bob Dole. She could be president of any job she set her mind to go after, but she is a student of the Reagan philosophy that says, "We can accomplish anything if we are willing to let others get the credit." We will have two confident, trustworthy, honest, self-assured leaders for our country with the Doles in the White House. MOONYEAN KISTLER La Habra When Elizabeth Dole spoke to the Republican convention in support of her husband and his beliefs, she was complimented and cheered by the delegates.

In a knee-jerk reaction to recent tragic shootings, the L.A. County supervisors banned the sale of guns on county property. Now the gun show promoters are suing the county (Sept. 8). I have an alternative. Selling legal guns to legal buyers on county property should be encouraged. It's the back-room, illegal sales that are a problem. The only thing the county needs to do is ensure that all sales on county property are legal. Why can't we have Sheriff's Department deputies with computers do a background check on all persons entering the show?

Re "Shut the Political Tollbooth," editorial, Jan. 3: The Times is to be congratulated on its position favoring the public financing of elections in California. It's hard to imagine that David Stockman's judgment, "the hogs are really feeding," was written in an almost innocent time about 20 years ago. We hadn't seen anything yet. And now Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is uncloaking as hog caller in chief. It's high time for the public to take back elections from the corporate predators.
