    @saveamericafromthestupids “@ SNOOP1E….you are dead wrong!! The reason the 2nd amendment was drafted (in 1791) was for the purpose of a militia!! These days the militia is the National Guard….”

    Actually you are completely wrong. The right to keep and bear Arms is separate and antecedent to the possible formation of militia. Thus the individual right to keep and bear Arms exists with or without the formation of militia, which, by the way, is not the National Guard.

    “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”
    –Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787).

    Boy, what a missed opportunity for Mr. LaPierre…”Well, Davic, there’s a ban on that magazine here in D.C. and yet here you sit with one. Very effective legislation wouldn’t you say David?” Agree with all the comments about this having no effect, reload in a second or two provides no better outcome these horrible situations. Is he actually saying that it’s great that we could only have 10 dead?? That’s somehow acceptable?

    Also, Rangerskippy brings up a point I’ve been wondering about. It’s true the initial reports said the suspect was found with two pistols and that that a rifle and shotgun were found in the car he drove. I know early reports can be jumbled, but I don’t see how such a mistaken report could happen. I wonder if the school has CCTV? Will we be able to have verification of what was found at the scene?

    No amount of legislation will reduce crime. If it did, we should be absolutely crime free.

    Believe nothing that you hear and only half of what you see.

    So the Blaze’s national security expert Buck Sexton does not know that if compromising, hidden relationships are uncovered during background investigations can prevent someone from obtaining high level security clearance that you need in the first place to work most any job at the CIA? What about the periodic “bring up” investigations and yearly or more frequent polygraph exams for it’s employees? I’m curious how Mr. Sexton, if ex-CIA, could make the statement “While the military officially condemns adultery under its regulations, I’m not aware of a similar prohibition in the intelligence community, …”

    Pt.2.
    Situation: FUBAR. This is all very, very strange. Oh, Broadwell could face court-martial and retired U.S. Army General David Petraeus can be recalled to active duty for court-martial as well.

    FBI was put on hold??? By whom? What a pattern. All I can say is someone is making alot of the wrong buildings mad in the D.C., VA area.

    First of all, he retired from the Army in 2011, so everyone should referring to him as “General”. It’s “retired U.S. Army General Petraeus”. Also people need to stop blaming Broadwell. They both committed adultery, it appears while Petraeus was still on active duty. Broadwell is a lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve. If we just stop there, considering all the violations of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), including adultery, conduct unbecoming an officer, etc., there’s the basic issue that they both possess highest security clearance and access. Their action is a basic disqualifier for anyone seeking such clearances, including just about everyone in the CIA, if discovered during special background investigation. What’s even more strange is Broadwell’s experience. Excerpt from her Univ. of Denver MA ’06 bio

    “A distinguished graduate from the United States Military Academy at West Point, Paula has lived, worked, or traveled in over 60 countries – in Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East – during more than fifteen years of military service and work in geopolitical analysis and counterterrorism and counterinsurgency operations. During that time, she had assignments with the U.S. intelligence community, U.S. Special Operations Command and an FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force….studied at the University of Amman in Jordan….She is also an instructor at the U.S. Academy for her Army reserve duty….” So she no doubt has active high clearances.

    So he actually said the worse is over at two different points in time!. That’s why it’s called a battle Geraldo, not a fist fight. And no one is blaming the military, rather the commander-in-chief. And he also mentions the “people with no combat experience…”. Um, where is his experience?? Getting kicked out of the 101st Airborne (and probably almost fragged) as an embedded reporter in Iraq when he gave away there battle plans.

    He said “Snoopy” (LOL!) for Spooky or AC-130(U) Spectre. Spooky was name of C-47 gunship of from Viet-Nam era that was one of the predecessors to the Spectre. And yes the AC-130(U)s were available according to reports of the CIA operative calling specifically for that plane for close air support. I think the problem is Geraldo is still having some pharmaceutical flashbacks from the ’70s. He seems more confused than usual. Did you see the look on his face when Gretchen Carlson reminded him that the military needs orders to act? Like a earlier comment, he just can’t connect the dots. Don’t think he ever could.

    Oh, and the 1976 Entebbe raid. That was a hijack/hostage situation with negotiations and a deadline. After the 1 July deadline, the Israelis got the hijackers and Amin to extend the deadline to 4 July. The operation was planned in 48 hours, then executed on 4 July. We do have quick reaction forces, we weren’t 2,500 miles away, and this is not 1976.

    Mr. Rivera, let’s get you back in your wheelchair and to your room. It’s time f

    So what does she do at the swearing in of each Congress? The oath ends with “…So help me God”. Just like the one SGTB took….it’s the same oath. In case some have forgotten it or have never taken it, here it is (reflect on each phrase)

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
