While I do agree with you that we should have Open Carry here in Florida, unless they do away with these idiotic “Gun Free” zones, it won’t matter. Even if every single person in Pulse had a CCL, it was a “Gun Free” zone. Personally, if I’m carrying concealed, the biggest question I’m asking myself when confronted with a gun free establishment is, If it’s concealed, how will they know? If just one person in that Club had that mentality, how many lives could have been saved? Of course, that would have put them in violation of the law, but I’d rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

What I don’t understand is why these gun manufacturers don’t lawyer up and sue the federal government. Thanks to Obama, their sales have been staggering, so they gotta have deep pockets right? If they can’t sue the Feds. directly, they can certainly sue their surrogates in the Media. Without a complicite media the Obama led leftist loons wouldn’t be able to push their poison. They should start with Couric and run with it. Enough high profile BS artists in the media get spanked financially in court, they’ll change their tune.

I don’t understand why more people don’t realize this. Do you think it has occurred to Trump that Cruz hasn’t closed any of his campaign locations or let any of his campaign staff go? It aint over, til it’s over. BTW, Lincoln also suspended his campaign because he was trailing Seward in delegates. Seward couldn’t get to 1237 and Lincoln won on the third ballot at the Convention

I fear that you are spot on.

So Donald Trump has delivered for the Clintons. Days before he announced his bid for the nomination, he had a phone conversation with Bill Clinton. Sure would have liked to have heard what was said, but I suspect that Trumps job was to break the already fractured Republican party. Mission accomplished

President doesn’t have the power to remove the Speaker of the House

Trump has decided he won’t be funding his Presidential campaign himself. Gonna take a lot of money considering that Clinton could easily pull in 200-300 million from big donors. So Trump got a fundraising chairman. Real great guy. Worked for Soros & Goldman Sachs. But even this Gem of a crony capitalism is having a hard time getting donors. Turned down cold by over a dozen big money donors straight out of the gate. Seems that while they find Trumps outlandish behavior mildly entertaining, they aren’t stupid enough to waste their money on a lost cause.

Who cares if it pulls support from both sides? Have you not noticed that both sides suck? There is virtually no difference between Trump and Clinton. In fact, to take it a step further, there wouldn’t be a Hillary issue if Trump hadn’t dumped money into her Senate and Presidential campaigns. Trump taking out Hillary is akin to Dr. Frankenstien trying to kill the monster he created. He may not be solely responsible, but he is certainly culpable.

I had the privilege of serving under Reagan…82-86. The only color that existed in the Army at that point was O.D. Green. No matter what your M.O.S, your primary job is soldier. There are plenty of more important things to worry about than being P.C. and not hurting someone else’s feelings. I had a group of about 8 friends that I hung around with in the Army, and 3 of them were White.

Did my Basic at Ft. “Lost in the woods”. Way back in ’82 Then on to Aberdeen Proving Grounds for AIT. Didn’t get to visit the Museum at Ft. Leonard Wood, but the Ordinance Museum at Aberdeen was pretty great.

Is it just me, or have American politics gotten to the point of Professional Wrestling? Mortal enemies in the ring and best buddies behind the scenes. I would say that D.C has become a joke, but there’s nothing funny about it.

Know where else has not just open carry, but mandatory carry? Israel. Their school teachers pack heat. Know how many school shootings they have had in the last decade? You could count them all on one hand without using your fingers. And that’s not to mention their Non terrorist related crime statistics. I firmly believe that an armed society, is a polite society.

Is that why of all the votes against Boehner for speaker of the house, 3 of them came from Florida? Not only that, but we also had 2 congressman throw their hats in the ring. Florida is a lot more conservative than you seem to think.

I’m inclined to agree with most of the posts here. There has been a gradule downward slide in Glenns narrative and passion and like many here I feel that the Bundy ranch was a tipping point for me. I miss the old Glenn.

I beg to differ. Not saying he wasn’t wrong, but by taking this public she has set up his victims for media harassment and public embarassment. She isn’t much better than he is.

I think that a key element that is being ignored here is the way this information came out to begin with. He was in therapy and his conversation was illegaly recorded. I’m not giving him a pass for what he did, but the fact that he was in therapy before any of this was made public suggest at least some degree of remorse and a desire to change. This should have been handled privately if for no other reason than the victims. You know it’s just a matter of time before some sleazy investigative reporter finds out who they are and goes public with it. His ex wife has done her share of damage to the victims too, the difference is she doesn’t feel any remorse

I actually would not have a problem with Sheriffs Dept.’s having this kind of hardware if they were conducting themselves as what they are supposed to be. Unlike City and municipal Police agencies, Sheriffs are elected and swear an oath to the Constitution and the people of their county. They should be the biggest Constitutionalists in the Country and many are. This Deputy has his head on wrong. It wasn’t just poor wording on his part, it was poor thinking. If he had said something like that in the Maricopa County Sheriffs office, Sheriff Joe would have cut him loose on the spot. And that’s what needs to happen in this case. Sheriffs Deputies need to be fully vetted before wearing the badge, because they are intended to be our first line of defence against those who would violate our Constitutional and God given rights.

I don’t know that the Gas Chamber would be appropriate to this type of crime. I’m leaning more towards live creamation. Just strap them down on the metal tray and slide them right on in. Kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak. A fitting end and immediate body disposal. I may not be so inclined to this view if it were not for the fact that the reports say he/she/they poured lighter fluid down her throat and up her nose before igniting her. It takes a special kind of evil to do that.

There is nothing that Chris Kyle said about Ventura that could defame Venturas’ character worse than Venturas’ own actions. I have Zero respect for Ventura, and given the opportuity, I would buy a ticket to meet him just so I could tell him personally what a useless POS I think he is.
