    But there is the rub – it’s not the LEOs’ money – it is tax payer money that is going to pay for the law suit (which means either everyone’s taxes are going to go up or the city will have to make cuts to other services – or within the police department – to recoup the money lost in a law suit). If the law stated that any officer that knowingly or recklessly disregards the state and federal constitution would be personally liable for any subsequent law suit and would also be liable for any judgments the city/state had to pay, I bet we would have a lot more constitutionally compliant LEO’s.

    Desert – hate to break it to you, but if someone is walking around with a AR with the magazine in the mag well, there is a pretty good chance that mag is full. Maybe not 100% of the time, but why on earth would you carry a rifle magazine with no bullets in it? Kind of defeats the purpose – and if you raise the gun to commit a crime, I’m sure the LEO is going to assume that magazine in the mag well has lead projectiles in it.

    So let me see if I understand this correctly – elite Seal Team Six, high value target, unauthorized clearance from target country, one helo crashed, minimal time to acquire target and extract him and intel, not sure how many in compound, expected boobie traps, civilians and possible hostels gathering outside compound gate, target less then 10 miles from Pakistan military base, still have to fly out without being shot down, only ammo is what you are carrying – and these guys are going to waste hundreds of rounds in a mad minute when every second on the ground exposes them to greater risk, exposure and possible capture or death? I call BS.

    Tom – I actually agree with you. I figure even a clearly justified shooting would end up costing me a minimum of $3000 – as I will reserve my right to speak with police until after consulting with my attorney (and he will probably be charging me at least $300/hr – but worth every dime). Even if the police are happy with the outcome and seem to be on my side, no telling what the local prosecutor might do once he gets the case and reads my statements – maybe he is anti-second amendment and wants to make an example out of a citizen defending him/her self. Maybe the local DA is thinking about running for a higher office and thinks prosecuting me would further his political career (even if he privately knows I was 100% justified and the use of the gun was appropriate based on the threat). Maybe the person that I shot was some local bigwig’s kid and that father is buddy/buddy with the DA (or the presiding judge). Maybe another witness that didn’t “feel” threatening by the individual would testify that I over-reacted or that witness is anti-second amendment and is willing to lie on the stand just to sick it to use conceal carry folks. Now, in this case – the guy is screaming that he is going to kill everyone and then starts ordering us into the back – yeah, I’m pretty I would be happily paying $3000 to save my life and the life of the clerk in this instance.

    The only thing worse than not have a CC permit is having a CC permit and not carrying because your conceal holster is too uncomfortable. I have a whole dresser drawer full of conceal carry holsters that didn’t work as advertised or were too uncomfortable to wear for more than an hour or two. Check around. I’m sure there are plenty of folks out there making nice customer holsters these days. The best one I have found I just ran across about 2 months ago. I wear it every day. http://discretedefensesolutions.com/

    I actually got my first IWB holster for my H&K .40 from these guy about 2 months ago (saw them at a gun show in Wichita, KS). By far the best conceal carry holster I have ever used and the first one I have ever owned where I didn’t have to wear an undershirt to keep the holster or grip from digging into my side. Wish these guys would go public so that I could own some of their stock!

    Hey old man RINO suffering from clear dementia – this is not a democracy. It’s a Constitutional Republic. A democracy is when two wolves and one sheep decide what’s for dinner. The beauty of our Constitutional Republic is that has built in protections for the political minority. Congress controls the power of the purse – so guess what, they can elect NOT to fund something. Any law that one Congress passes, another Congress can revoke (or defund). Shame on you McStain.

    Someonce can correct me if I’m wrong – but don’t we all have the RIGHT to shout “fire” in a crowded theater even if there is no fire . . . but, as a result, the local D.A. has the RIGHT to prosecute me for knowingly and falsely doing so? The government can’t stop you from speaking, but they have the right to arrest and prosecute your exercise of that right if it breaks the law (causes panic, incites a riot, leaks classified goverment documents, aids the enemy, etc.).

    Likewise, any of you have the right to call me bad names, slander my reputation, and state known lies about me. And I have the RIGHT to sue you in civil court if I can prove that you knew the statements that were made were untrue and I am not a public figure.

    Unless you are a felon, illegal alien, or mentally ill, you have a RIGHT to own a gun . . . and, once again, the police and D.A. have the RIGHT to arrest and prosecute you if break the law while using that firearm.

    In stead of saying the First Amendment has “limitations”, I would prefer to state that the EXERCISE of one’s First Amendment rights may have consequences.

    Yes – and the Muslim Brotherhood is a secularists organization that just wants to see democracy take over in the region (and we all know what the definition of “democracy” is don’t we – it’s when two wolves and one sheep vote on what’s for dinner). These FSA leaders would never lie to us, would they??? And even if the FSA were to prevail, they would never be overrun by a more organzied and more cut-throat bunch of “Islamic extremists” would they? Naa. Never. We’re golden. Light’em up!

    “He listened to their pleas for support and concluded that the U.S. “has a national security obligation” to keep Syria from being controlled by Assad or Islamic extremists.”

    Ummm . . . maybe I’m missing something, but isn’t the FSA made up a large number of different groups, including terrorists and “Islamic extremists”? Who are we supposed to be supporting again?

    Can the adiministraction say with “high confidence” that the regime’s execution of a conventional rocket and artillery attack against the Damascus suburbs in the early hours of August 2 did not actually hit the rebels’ chemical weapons stockpiles given to them by Saudia Arabia? Guess what, you hit a stockpile of rebel chemical weapons with conventional artillery and anyone living around those stockpiles ends up dead. Just saying.

    Careful – they accept those GIFT cards and I’m pretty sure the NCAA is going to come down on them like a bag of hammers. NCAA athletes don’t get to accept gifts unless pre-proved by the all-seeing NSA, I mean NCAA.

    Has she actually CONFIRMED that it is her bike, or did she just steal a bike that looks a lot like hers? Would be kind of funny if it turns out that the bike isn’t hers and she does 30 days in jail for felony theft. Hehe

    Okay trailer trash – you spent $300 or $400 on a gun, but won’t spend another $35 on a cheap (but effective) gun safe with a 4 digit type-in code ? Oh – you don’t think your meth-brain can remember a 4 digit code? Well – then I hope some 8 year old finds your gun and blows your brains out while you are watching Hard Core Pawn. I will actually feel sorry for the 90-year-old if it turns out it was her idiot son or grandson that left the loaded gun laying around – in which case, you charge him with involuntary manslaughter and he does a little time as a result.

    Here is the problem – as this continues, when you see a young african-american between the ages of 15 and 35, you HAVE TO consider that the odds of you being assaulted by said individual (or individuals) goes up and off the charts compared to almost every other race/class/gender/age of person(s). That is completely unfair to the majority of decent, respectful african-american kids out there. But even with those kids, if you are wearing baggy pants, hat on side ways, wife beater t-shirt, the alarm bells for any rational person should be going off – and what happens if you shoot that person in “self defense” just because they were walking towards you in a “menacing manner”? That seems completely unreasonable and unjustifiable . . . until the defense attorney start showing the jury all of the black-on-white crime statistics, recent black-on-white violence in the area, etc. The defense attorney may not get an acquittal, but he or she can likely find at least a few jurors who “can relate” based on all of the violence coming from such a small minority of the population. Sad

    This would explain the poor photoshop job inserting Mr. President into this photo in the “situation room” where he is about 30% too small compared to everyone else. Poor editing – can’t they get anyone that can fake a decent photo or birth certificate?

    Okay Blaze journalists. Time to do a little investigative reporting in your own back yard. Wes Swank died of a similar car crash to Mr. Hastings. Just like Mr. Hastings. Mr. Swank was driving the same car, the report was that it was traveling at a high rate of speed and crashed with no skid marks just a mile from Mr. Swank’s home. Mr. Swank had a great job, a great wife, a new born baby, and there is absolutely zero evidence that he liked to drive recklessly or had something terrible that might lead him to want to take his life. Was his car taken over via remote – if so, anyone know why they would want him dead? His boss and friend, Mr. Kyle Bass might know something about that if you were to ask him the question.

    Please tell me that exchange was not in front of the jury . . . . the judge has NO RIGHT to ask that question in front of the jury. The judge does not get to call out the defense for calling or not calling certain witnesses (assuming the witness will provide relevant and admissionable testimony if called to take the stand) – the defense can simply rest its case. At which point, the judge dismisses the jury AND THEN confirms with Zimmerman that he understands that he has the right to take the stand and has waived that right.

    Regarding the Proposition 8 ruling, I agree with Glenn that the people have a right to pass laws — to create a bill and pass it…but you still can’t pass a law that your State Supreme Court says violates your STATE Constitution . . . now, if you can get everyone to agree to amend you state Constitution so that there is no conflict and that amendment does not otherwise infringe on one’s “inalienable rights” – as determined by your state Constitution (which, I acknowledge, are sometimes determined by the folks in black robes – who do have certain political beliefs that may not match the majority of citizens), then I don’t think the US Supreme Court would hear the case, because it is a State issue.

    I happend to agree with the US Supreme Court – this is an issue for the California state courts to determine, not the federal courts. If you don’t like the outcome, blame it on those appointed/elected to your highest state court.

    Did everyone up on that stage at the press conference look terrified and worried about more attacks and bombs coming in the next 2 to 72 hours? NOPE. That was not a press conference warning people about more “imminent danger” . . . that was a victory lap “take my picture so that I can use it when I run for election/reelection” gathering of “Mission Accomplished”. Damn – it’s like this Administration WANTS to mess up this otherwise slam dunk case by refusing to read him his Miranda Rights.
