Just like the old SNL skit "Show Us your Guns". Well that skit was a slur on gun ownership at the time, but it would actually be a good idea since we are at war with radical islamists who are here in numbers the FBI can't count. This last mass shooting in San Bernadino was no different than Sandy Hook, CT or Columbine, Aurora or Oregon or SC. An Evil, Godless coward or cowards walks into a gun free zone and starts to play executioner to every innocent human unlucky enough to be there. If you want to stop this carnage there needs to be a well armed citizen present to defend against it.
What if I can't afford one? Can I get an Obamagun like I can get an Obamaphone?

My heart goes out to the family of the UCCS police officer who gave his life today.
I feel our officers in Colorado Springs and El Paso County are the among the best and most professional LEO in the world.
My heart also goes out to the families of the other two victims, and I pray that the wounded officers and civilians make a rapid recovery.

The article has 1 more word than the headline, 2 if you count Paris (AP).

“Vigilante and extra-judicial killings of Black people…” Wouldn’t that be an argument FOR allowing law-abiding citizens to carry guns?
I've heard of damn few of either of these lately. Mostly I've heard of self defense shootings.
Not to protct africo-on-american, only Americans.

The property taxes were being paid. Did the city not contact the lien holder/mortgage company? The lien holder has an interest in the home. Since there’s a mortgage, I assume there’s a home owner’s insurance company also.

Colorado Springs allows open carry. In most of Colorado, open carry is allowed.

Colorado Springs is conservative. Open carry is legal in the city, and the sheriff does not make it any harder than necessary to get an concealed carry permit. The shooting occurred within a few miles of the main city police station, and about a mile from the municipal courthouse. It started relatively early on a Saturday morning, when most people are just getting out of bed. Sometimes you can’t fix stupid people. I’m sure we’ll find out more in the coming days about the mental state of the criminal.

I wonder what’s the percentage of students who can’t own or carry a pistol (or obtain a CCP), because they’re under 21. I wonder if the professor thought about the fact his fellow educators may obtain a CCP (if they don’t already have one), and defend themselves and their students, in case some criminal decided to attack.

I don’t understand the issue. Many cities in this country take water from a river, clean it, use it, flush it down the toilet, clean it, and then dump it back into the river. The next city down the river repeats the process. Toilet to tap is done all the time. Even in the city I live, which gets water directly from reservoirs has fish and animal excrement before it’s cleaned.

The shooters in Columbine were minors. They could NOT legally buy guns. They violated the law in getting their firearms. Whoever gave/sold them the firearms broke the law. Incidentally, they violated the law when they built their IEDs also. Also, assuming you’re talking about gun shows, the vast majority of the sellers there are FFL holders and are required to run background checks. Any transactions between private individuals whether at a gun show or not, in most states, don’t have to run a background check, but it’s still illegal to sell to felons and minors. It’s illegal for a felon or minor to buy a firearm. BTW, this applies to federal agents also.

I find it very interesting these stories about wildlife in the neighborhood. A coyote in NYC and a bear in Florida are national news? In my neighborhood, we regularly get visits from a pack of coyotes, bears, foxes, bobcats, and other wildlife. You just learn to live with them, ie. lock up your garbage can, build stronger fences, and teach your kids not to harass them. In most cases, if you leave them alone, they’ll leave you alone, and perhaps they’ll even help control your rabbit and squirrel populations.
In my city in Colorado, the sidewalk in front of your house belong to you, are your responsibility, and are a public easement to remain open to the public. You are required to remove snow from them within 24 hours.

Great game! Both teams deserved to win, of course, only one could come out on top in the end. The majority of the players played they way we teach our kids: play your best until the final whistle. The game could have gone either way. I look forward to watching both teams next season. Until then, there’s the baseball season that starts in only a couple of months. Go Red Sox!

Great game. (Even better that my Patriots won.) It was the way all Superbowl games should be, contested all the way to the final minute.
It was a fantastic game between two great teams...
I only wish that my Hawks didn't lose their composure in the final seconds.. That was a little embarrassing....
Congratulations Patriot Fans!!

God cares about us. We care about football. Therefore, God cares about football, at least on how it affects us and our relationships with Him and with one another.

I’ve a crazy idea. Why don’t we let Alaskans decide how Alaska lands should be managed?
don't you know the common man is not equiped to manage anything. That's why we need a huge federal leviathon to mange everything for us
Duh! Of course the land is theirs and ours, and not the feds' who were to be "trustees" and not dictate as though owners.

If the Colorado Civil Rights Commission is consistent, this bakery will lose. I disagreed with the Commission’s decision about the other bakery and I disagree that this bakery should be forced to make a cake that violates their conscience.
the other one did not have hate speech on it, allthough i disagree with both cases they are not comparable
Why do you think that the bakery will lose?
This bakery baked the cake, as per the customer order (the other bakery didn't even attempt to bake a cake). When the customer was asked what he wanted written on the cake, she refused because it was hate speech. She did, however, offer to let him use the frosting bag to put the writing on himself. This is a completely different issue than the first bakers.
