Criminals are sick, not stupid. If you make it harder (or even next to impossible) to acquire semi- automatic rifles it won’t do squat, they’ll still get them. Guns aren’t the problem, race baiting A- holes like Obama are. Maybe if he would at least refrain from opening his piehole before the first responders on the ground have any facts at all, there wouldn’t be all out war on the streets of America. Are there bad cops? Sure, and they should be prosecuted with extreme prejudice because of the fact that they were law enforcement officers and violated the very laws we entrusted them to uphold. However Barrack Obama and company have turned every police involved shooting involving an African American into trial by media before the blood has dried or the facts are known. The Police didn’t start this, Obama did.

TEXASGRANNY73, Trump is not yet at this point the nominee. Until the delegates at the convention vote and confirm him as the nominee, he is the “Presumptive” nominee. Someone should have explained that to you and to Trump. Unless the rules committee changes the rules, the delegates are not legally bound, not the other way around. The conscience clause they are pushing for is symbolic. The only time the delegates have ever been legally bound was in 1976 to ensure that Ford won the nomination rather than Reagan, and it was done at convention via a rules change. That rule was rescinded in 1980 and has never been reinstated. Had the RNC done away with open primary states, Trump wouldn’t even be a bad memory since he only garnered 3.3million Republican votes. Over 12 million votes were cross over votes ie; Democrats. So basically, the Democrats picked our nominee for us, specifically because they knew he didn’t stand a chance in the General election. Trump has no hope of beating Hillary in the General election, no matter how bad she is because 3/4 of the people that voted for Trump will vote for Hillary in the General…unless the Delegates pull the Rupublican Party out of the fire and back to sanity.

Well, it may get a whole lot more dramatic for them at the convention. The push for a conscience clause is picking up momentum every day. If the delegates are freed to vote their conscience, Trump is toast.

I beg to differ, when you are running for the highest elected office in the nation and your oath of office says first and foremost that you will defend and uphold the Constitution, you damn well better know what’s in it.
Fla.Patriot -- nice speech, dude. Now ask yourself: Obama's (supposedly) a doggone constitutional SCHOLAR -- did that help him DEFEND the Constitution any? (He of Executive Order fame . . . )
No, Obama does not defend the Constitution, and that's a major reason conservatives do not like him.
On the other hand, Trump is supposed to be the conservative choice, according to his supporters, and he ALSO does not know the Constitution.
To me, that is like saying the internment camps the US put Americans of Japanese decent into was OK because of Hitler's use of concentration camps.

I think it would be safe to say that Trump has no clue as to what the Presidents job actually is, especially since the entire concept of separation of powers baffles him. He seems to be under the misguided impression that the legislative branch is obligated to do as he commands. The closer we get to the convention and the lower he sinks in the polls, the more likely it becomes that he will not be the nominee. Which on it’s face sounds messed up, but when you consider that only 3.3 million Republicans voted for him and over 12 million Democrats voted for him in open primary states, it seems only logical that the Delegates would avert the disaster of having the Democrat party choose our nominee knowing that the ones that voted for him in the primaries will flip to Hillary in the General Election.

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.
 May 5, 2016 at 7:32pm
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.
