You've misunderstood that motto, the Officer did Protect (themselves) by making this Man serve their orders, COMPLY!
It has been established at the supreme court level the only obligation cops have is the enforce the law. They are legaly NOT obligated to protect you or serve you. The only protect and serve you will get is. Protect and serve the law by enforcing the law.

It seems like strange timing that McCain’s 180 happens at the same time House Representatives are filing articles of impeachment against Eric Holder. Can you say ” CYA and guilty conscious”.

I’ve always wondered how one “discovers” a place that is already inhabited.
No you haven't. You're just using the standard Nobel Savage drumbeat of "baaaaaa!".
If your entire culture doesn't know something exists, and somebody from your culture discovers that thing, then the thing is discovered in the context of your culture. If an astronomer today discovers a planet orbiting a star 10 light years away, it really doesn't matter a whit if some form of "people" is already living on that planet, the discovery in the context of our world would still be a discovery.
Take the political correctness somewhere where people don't think.

I carry a Springfield Armory XDM in .45ACP with a round in the chamber at all times. This gun has 2 independant safeties, one on the rear of the grip which must be depressed by your palm and another one on the trigger like a Glock. The gun will only fire when both safeties are depressed. It is always either in my biometric safe on the nightstand or in my Blackhawk level 2 Serpa holster on my side. When transferring between these two locations I grip the gun on the slide with my off hand and keep it pointed in a safe direction. Always ready to fire and completely safe. JMO

I live in Southeastern Indiana and I open carry everywhere it is legal. I walked into GoldStar Chili the other day past a table with 3 police officers and nobody said a word. I have never been approached by a law enforcement officer or business owner since I began open carrying 2+ years ago. People in this part of the country get it.

I think you’re missing the point. People freaked out over drones in U.S.skies but if they use something innocuous like a blimp they can spy on you 24/7. Plus its probably cheaper.

Agreed. I’m still amazed that thousands of illegal immigrants can receive tax refund checks at the same address (recent story) or that they are offended because one of the Carolina’s has the nerve to put a large pink stripe on the top of their driver’s liscense (which they find offending when they present their ID to buy beer or cigarettes). They are illegal, round ‘em all up and deport after providing instruction on how to legally become a U.S. citizen. How can I expect them to become a “good American” when the first act they commit on U.S. soil is a crime.

Obama does have another job. He is the curent Chairman of the U.N. Security Council. Can anybody say “conflict of interest”. How can he possibly serve the best interest of the U.S. and the U.N. at the samt time. These are crazy times we are living in.

KETONC33: http://station4news.com/category/ar-15/ Here are 6 examples from 1 news station. Lots of articles popped up when I goggled it, but this triples your challenge to find 2. The duel comment was metaphorical. Be honest and accountable for your statements as if your life is on the line. The intent was to demonstrate that people in government positions should not use their opinion to further an agenda. They should use current, valid statistics from unbiased research and decide the proper action from there. Furthering one’s agenda by slanting statistics or omitting facts that do not support their position is dishonest, which is not a trait I believe our country needs from its elected officials. As for the best weapon, it’s up to each individual to decide which weapon they are most comfortable and proficient with and I do not believe that decision should not be limited by government actions. I like the AR-15, but that is a personal choice. Everyone has the responsibility of protecting themselves; the method they choose is their decision alone. I don’t know your situation, but emergency response time in my area is about 25 minutes. As such I have completed certified firefighter training, certified Paramedic training and personal protection courses. I prefer living where I know all of my neighbors, and we can count on each other. I am the first responder for my families no matter what the emergency is. Can you take care of yourself and those you care

A shotgun being a better personal protection weapon than an AR-15 is a rediculous idea. Anybody who thinks this should be immediately challenged to a duel. They get a shotgun and I use an AR. Nobody would make that claim more than once. Put your money where your mouth (life) is if you really belive the lies you spew. These false claims would be stopped if their lives were on the line.

Have to disagree with the “Freak Accident” portion of the title of this article. Something that is that tall with any weight to it and a base that looks like it’s about 14-16 inches deep is going to fall over without a doubt. No signs of any kind of wall anchor in the top picture (improper installation). If the truth were told I’d bet that the installers recognized the hazard and figured ” il’ll be fine, nothing is going to happen”. Maybe if we change the title to “INEVITABLE ACCIDENT” I could buy it.

I work a continually changing 12 hour swing shift but I felt so strongly about the crisis facing the public school system that I unenrolled my 4th grader about a month ago. Home schooling is the only option I see in the short term to ensure my son gets a good education. It hasn’t been easy but I owe it to my child to ensure he has a chance to thrive and the ability to take care of himself later in life. The amazing part of this comment is that when I approached the Principal, she was 100% supportive of my decision and said I was doing the right thing. It is concerning that school officials support home schooling and realize it provides the best opportunity for a child. I believe it is the only way to stop the embrace of socialist views by our younger generations during their formative years early in life..
Kudos! I experienced the same support from my children's elementary school 7 years ago when I pulled them out to homeschool them. We haven't looked back since! It's very time consuming to review and select curriculum, and it's also pretty expensive. Yet the benefits FAR outweigh the negatives. Nothing compares to an education tailored to your child.
As a now single parent, I wasn't in an easy situation to homeschool, but when the opportunity came to us, we jumped at it, and haven't looked back! Best decision we ever made. My kids learn more in home school on my days off than they ever did in traditional school, all day, five days a week.
For those of you who have a dual income / two parent family, it is easier. Look at what you can do to make your life work on one income, and then put the kids first. You don't know what you can do to your lifestyle when you take the nonsense out. The kids need you more than a house with extra bedrooms or a new car, or twenty electronic/digital gadgets. Scale down and teach your kids.
@tradcatholicgirl and okieqt
Both of you are good people that care about this country. I commend both of you for your principles and dedication to the founders of our nation.
We have home schooled for the past 5 years. Our children have always been in private-christian schools prior to us taking them out to home school. We were seeing the school slowly introducing secular curriculum and easing up on their standards for their teachers. It was the best thing we ever did! Certainly not easy, but what options do we have? It's going to take a very long time to fix the schools system, in the mean time, what are you doing to your child? Take care of your children first, then try to fix the public school mess!
Amen! I homeschooled for 3 years, then was told about a "wonderful" charter school. They succeeded in making my accelerated children into average Pavlovian drones.

The actions of 0.0000002% of the U.S. population (those committing mass murder in the last 30 years) is driving legislation that will effect 25% of our citizens (legal gun owners). The government reaction to the most recent tragedy seems to be more driven by agenda than rational thought.

Why are we giving mentally ill psychopaths so much political power. The rights of millions of Americans are about to be infringed upon. U.S. population is about 310 million. According to my research there have been 62 mass murder incidents in the last 30 years (single gunman kills at least 4 victims). 12 school incidents, 19 workplace incidents and 31 other settings. Using the mathmatical formula, incidents / population = percentage of population these gunmen represent. We are about to introduce legislation to address the actions of 0.0000002% of the population. That’s 2 / ten millionths. They are saying the NRA is a powerful lobby but based on these numbers it looks like psychopaths / mass murders actually hold infinately more power.
