Given the events, the cop is clearly dangerous. Grabbing a gun without warning then pulling a gun on someone without so much as reasonable suspicion, not to mention illegally holding the child, this guy needs to be investigated immediately. I love how the initial charge was resisting arrest, when he wasn’t told he was under arrest and they had nothing they were arresting him for in the first place.

I’ve got a friend in the military who claims Bin Laden was imprisoned for about a year and then died of health problems, and that his shooting was completely fictional.

Verce, your “don’t question authority” attitude is dangerous and frightening. When a school assignment requires you to do something that goes against your morals, ethics, values or convictions, it is overstepping its bounds. What if the assignment had been to swear fealty to a religion other than your own? Learning a language does not need to involve swearing allegiance to a foreign country, period.

According to the UNODC, gun homicides in Canada are closer to 200 a year. About 1/6 the amount of the US per capita. Still pretty low, but hardly 20-30 per year.

But we’re not talking about people going on disability for PTSD. We’re talking about people who have been “determined” by VA to be incompetent to handle their finances. That shouldn’t be lumped together with prohibiting gun ownership because A: the process is incredibly vague and doesn’t seem to be disputable, and B: unable to handle finances doesn’t necessarily mean dangerous with a gun. The particularly scary part is that, because the determination process is not widely known and apparently indisputable, they can use this to simply stop people from being allowed to own guns. It’s a very abusable process.

@WINEDUDE Healthcare is a right to the extent that you shouldn’t be denied the ability to get it. That does not mean that it should be provided by my tax money. Similarly, I demand that my right to own guns not be infringed, not that the government buys them for me.
Is Glenn still lying about CtD being made of "good people"? Last time I heard him on the radio he was still pimping for them.
CTD lost my business after they folded when Shady Hook transpired.
They lost ALOT of business that will never return, and they are trying to get it back.
Glad to see Cheaper Than Dirt has joined in not selling to Communist states. I will buy from these folks
Not to mention how they've been gouging their customers to make a fast buck (or millions) 'cuz of the crippling parts and ammo shortages; caused, I might add, by those without the foresight to arm themselves BEFORE something like this happened.
It's not as though the anti's had legislation waiting in the wings for a tragedy (like Sandy Hook, et al) to happen so they could push their agenda! Right?
Look, I know this is preaching to the choir (excepting, of course, the trolls), but, right-minded citizens have GOT to arm themselves! They were openly talking about seizures on FOX-NEWS this afternoon! This is not joke, people. I truly wonder how long we have until the federal government makes their move.
And it's not only the feds. many state governments - like New York - are pushing through wholly unconstitutional anti-gun measures - making criminals out of law-abiding, patriotic citizens. If you don't think we are on the verge of a real shooting war - here, inside the US - you've got rocks in your head! Personally, that scares the hell out of me, BUT, we're nearing the point of no return and I wish Glenn would stop whining like Ghandi and start speaking like a man. This, "Give 'em your guns and fight 'em in court" nonsense ain't gonna' cut it, Glenn. By then, it'll be too late,
And tell Glenn to read what Ghandi wrote about his little "sit-ins" and what he'd have done if the Brit's hadn't disarmed he and his followers! You'll be shocked at what
Magpul AR-15 mags in stock for $100 a pop. Might think twice about ordering from these guys again.
"It has been and will continue to be Cheaper Than Dirt’s policy to not to sell prohibited items to government agencies and/or agents in states, counties, cities, and municipalities that have enacted restrictive gun control laws against their citizens."
Dammit CTD! I had to clean up all the soda from the computer I spit up laughing at your hypocrisy.
You'll fold up your tent for Newtown, CT and infringe upon our rights, but when the oppression is in full swing you'll bandy about trying to make us believe you care.
And stop sending me more catalogs when I send them back to you. Love how you no longer include prices in them. LOL
FORMER11BRAVO & other like minded folks are laughing at you. So what if MAGPUL is charging more for an item. It's called supply & demand. Right now there is high demand. I have acquired enough firearm provisions over the years, even those of my avatar. Now I have been storing food & seeds because if you visit the local supermarket one cannot be but appalled by the cost of feeding a family. Also, have you noticed the farmland that was around when you were a child has either become a strip mall, housing development, or state owned green acres? In the town of Warren N.J. there once stood a dairy farm. It became "preserved" by the state. All that stands there now are the two silos and some plastic cows for the new resident populations entertainment. A very creepy image in my eyes. I would just love to be able to walk into that barn & get a quart of the best chocolate milk that I enjoyed as a child. Now the farm is visited by the school children for field trips but there is no barn, cows, cats, milk, hay, chickens, or lesson to be learned other than the destruction of the food supply line . The thing that is most noticed by me & sadly missed is the odor of a farm. That cannot be replicated by technology. One less sense to be stimulated by this human being. And if anyone thinks that I am weird for that train of thought, how about that odor that is being emmitted from New York City everyday? Putrid, rank, & outright nauseating!
1NJSLAVE - Magpul is not charging $100 per magazine. Middlemen are.
I have a decent supply, but those who are running the forefront of price gouging will not get my business when all of this dies down. Which it will.
I've personally never bought anything from CTD because they were never competitive on price, at least on the items I was buying.

Last figure I read said that firearms are used in self-defense 1.2 million times a year by Americans. Also, for what it’s worth, in 99.9% of those cases, the criminal is scared away or injured, but not killed. Intimidation and show of power are great for defense as well.

If not convicted, there’s no hope for the justice system.
Who wants to bet MSNBC “accidentally” gets the facts wrong and says this guy actually was a right-wing extremist?
So Wendy’s is sexist because the logo is a girl? Frosted Flakes are sexist because Tony the Tiger is male? Chick-fil-A is sexist because it’s clearly a rooster and not a hen? Your idea that women never wear ties is absurd. Even with it being more common for men to wear ties than women, the idea that the logo is therefore sexist is also absurd.
Furthermore, I used to have a ponytail, and my brother-in-law still does, so your indication that it symbolizes a female is more offensive than a logo with a tie in it.

Nothing can ever be said to have prevented what happened, but the guard did prevent what almost certainly would have happened, which is more injuries and probably deaths.

Uninformed and ignorant is one thing, when the article he linked directly contradicted what he said, it’s just plain lying.

I wish I could find some examples right now, but I’m sure I’ve read of instances where the courts decided that religious freedom is universal, rather than only applying to individuals and churches. Certainly common sense dictates that, but unfortunately common sense has become very hard to come by.
Common sense is the major difference between humans and animals.
Well, now we know who the SCOTUS will side with in upcoming cases.
Guess the emperor used up his blackmail card to get Roberts to uphold obamacare in the first place...

That’s what I don’t get about these buyback programs. They must be worried their guns will run off and commit mass murder of their own accord. After all, guns kill people.

The fact that he points out not having nice things to say to his friends, and calls the children disappointments, shows that his attitude is a selfish one. If he presented it in a loving way (which does not necessarily mean gentle,) and made it more about being upset to see his children not living up to their potential, I could perhaps agree with his sentiment.
I agree, it sounds like a "I had kids so I could brag about them, and since I can't, you are a disappointment..."
Maybe this guy is in the right, most likely not.... There are not enough details to know who is in the right, but I definitely get a, "I am disappointed because I cannot brag about you" vibe from it...
You don't have kids just so you can brag about them... Maybe that's not who this man is, but he sure sounds that way in the letter...
But I do agree that some people need "tough love" in order to wake up... I have an older sister who is the same way... She is 33, single, has a child (lovely little 4 year old daughter) has absolutely NO desire to earn her own way, and ALWAYS rely's on others to solve her problems...
I love her, but I told her that I will NOT help her, unless she can PROVE she tried to help herself... And since she REFUSES to hold down a full-time job (and only wants to work about 20 hours a week, on HER schedule) I don't see that happening any time soon...
I always joke with our family that although we feel bad for her daughter, at least we can rest easy knowing that her daughter will be more responsible than her mother by the time she is 12....
I can identify. Our son, while very bright, has been slow to acclimate to the real world. We got everything on track and then he started have epileptic seizures. Now we are working on just getting him healthy. Others have kids our son's age who are married with children. It's hard to read the Christmas letters that list all the achievements and realize our big news was he was able to finish his Associate's degree and graduate with honors from a local community college. Of course, we're thrilled, but to everyone else, it's like....next.....
