JCVD was world tae kwan do champion, but if you look closely the stunt was done with one semi, and one straight truck, the strait truck is easier to steer away to widen the gap. I am a class a cdl holder, and know what I am talking about. I do not know about all of his martial arts background, I do not care if he is a prima balerina , that was impressive.

Open carry is the best way to carry,I used to live in AZ. and carried openly sometimes, nobody ever freaked out, and once in a circle K (convenience store) 2 would be holdup men saw the gun on my hip and fled, no shooting, no holdup, no statistic. I know of numerous other cases like that, one where a friend was approached by 2 escaped convicts, one a murder, they left him alone when they saw his 44 mag holstered on his belt. They did not shoot him from behind, unfortunately they went and found an unarmed victim and murdered them. I never heard of people open carrying being targeted (show me a statistic), but often CCW holders have guns taken from their cars, where they were left when they had to enter a “gun free zone”. So by these arguements, we should abolish “gun free zones” instead of open carry in order to keep guns away from criminals.

I lived in AZ for 23 years, love Mexican AMERICANS who come here legally or not to be AMERICANS, they are victims of the cartels, coyotes, and exploitation on both sides of the border. Obama wants to engage in war in Syria over 1500? deaths, how many people were slaughtered in the Mexican border zones?, all he did was have holder send more guns! Seal the border, like Janet Wanted BEFORE she went to homeland security. Let honest people immegrate, no guest workers, No visas for Saudis etc. no illegals to be exploited, come be Americans or do not come, imprison criminals, do not deport them to return next week.
dash cams are illegal in IL for civilians, but in Russia they are legal and common, it makes you think doesn’t it.

I am guessing that he left the gun in the house when he rushed her to the hospital, seems logical to me, and tragic as this is, none of this sounds criminal.

I see it as an art piece, to draw attention to the problem of abduction, and sex trafficing, They should get a government NEA grant, The only sort of law thhat could limit this would be some sort of traffic hazard law. You cannot regulate taste.

Most Bison in wild animal parks are beefalo: ie calmer cross bred with domestic cattle, some wild herds (yellostone included) are more genetically pure, and more dangerous.

The Catholic Church has many married priests, The priest of my old Parish was one of 30+ former Episcopalians that became Catholic in the US under pope John Paul. This man could become a Priest even if he did not recieve an annulment, and was(in the eyes of the Church)still married. He may have had no choice in his divorce, He will have much to offer his Parish based on life experience.

Welcome to Illinois! Check your rights at the border please. Why would a Social Studies teacher want to mention the 5th, actually teach his class when given an opportunity?
IL has become a communist country. It's truly a shame because there are some good people living there. Just not enough to overthrow the progressive regime. I avoid spending a dime in blue states if at all possible.

They do not have any probable cause to check his cellphone, shoes have been made into bombs, but they did not take his off. How can we police the police if we cannot film? They film the general public all of the time to protect themselves, if they have that right we do too because all rights given to government were given to us by God and extended to government via our consent. The natural right to self defense does not start or end with the 2nd amendment. What do the police have to hide? In the internet age the first amendment specifically protects this(in my opinion). To borrow from the left, “you are a racist” if you oppose the right to film the police because minorities are more likely to be arrested and abused by them (think Rodney King). I am a old white Republican, I know that the police powers are strictly limited by the Constitution, the general public has no such limits.

Armed guards are not there to protect against guns, they are there to intimidate and protect against any attack. Guns in the hands of individuals are an equalizer, they help to even the odds when the stronger and or more numerous prey upon the weaker, and more vulnerable. An unborn citizen losing their entire future life seems like a large price to pay to avoid a 9 month pregnancy. Kill the rapist in the attempt, not the 2nd innocent victim resulting from the rape. Are you a person? or just an overgrown fetus? who should decide, the government? That has worked out well in the past. Look at the countries that banned guns(England, Australia,etc.) Gun deaths fell, but violent crimes by thugs increased greatly, the weak became easy targets.

The Germanic Tribes were conditioned by the Kaiser and became receptive to the Nazis, Before the mid 1800s Germans were known as the most unruly, rebelious people in Europe. When the Kaiser instituted the draft in the 1860s a huge Exodus of Immigrants arrived in the Americas, the ones that stayed behind Formed a more orderly and maleable populous. Many German Americans Sympathized with germany in both world wars, (The German American Bund in NY ETC.). But the vast majority were loyal Americans who often fought with honor on German soil for the USA. Many German (and Italian)POWs elected to stay in the US and become citizens after the war, they wanted no part of the Fascism/Communism in Europe, again the ones left in Europe were conditioned to accept and obey. We are being conditioned to accept and obey in a similar manner today.

I am a Catholic Republican IL resident, I am against All government sanction of The Sacrement of Marriage, especially here in IL. Why would I want the approval of a bunch of baby killing felons to practice my religion. If a Gay (or paligimous moslem etc) wants to practice Marriage as they see fit between any number of consenting adults, I say go for it. Just do not tell me that my practice of monogamous heterosexual Marriage for life is anti gay.
Your stance would be commendable if the radical homosexual activists weren't teaching and endorsing this aberrant sexual behavior in the gov schools. Forcing it on our kids, without parental consent.
Here's what is, and has been pushed in the gov schools to innocent kids. These radical homosexual proponents are trying to sexualize younger and younger kids.
"The Little Black Book - Queer in the 21st Century
Fistgate II: High School Students Given "Fisting Kits" At Kevin Jennings' GLSEN Conference (Photo)
Now what does an aberrant sexual behavior have to do with the accomplishments of a person? It's ridiculous!!
California lawmakers demand schools teach 'gay' history
"What same-sex 'marriage' has done to Massachusetts"
(QUOTE)... "Adulterers, pornography addicts, and people hooked on drugs…..are they allowed to marry?"
But you don't see these harmful behaviors being endorsed, encouraged, and sanctioned in the gov schools. Homosexuality is certainly is.
Absolutely they can get married!! And so can LGBTQ ... Gay couples can already do everything married people do--express love, set up housekeeping, share home ownership, have sex, raise children, commingle property, receive inheritance, and spend the rest of their lives together. It’s not criminal to do any of these things.
Homosexuals can even have a wedding. Yes, it's done all the time. Entire cottage industries have sprung up from Hollywood to the Big Apple serving the needs--from wedding cakes to honeymoons--of same-sex lovers looking to tie the knot.
Denying marriage doesn't restrict anyone. It merely withholds social approval from a lifestyle and set of behaviors that homosexuals have complete freedom to pursue without it. A marriage license doesn’t give liberty; it gives approval and endorsement.
Homosexual marriage is not about what homosexuals are being forced by others not to do, but what society is being forced to do by homosexuals: approve.
you cannot be "catholic" then unless you have started your own catholic church

I was asked to help train the women’s black belt class at my sons dojo, because I was not a skilled martial artist, just a large male. The 18-30 year old blackbelt women were all unable to defend or escape from me once I had grabbed them, the sensei used this to bring them down to earth and get them to focus on awareness, to get them to run, and never let a stranger get close enough to grab them. They were instructed how to use a ball point pen, keys etc AS A LAST RESORT if they were grabbed. The point of a gun is to keep a threat from getting close enough to grab you, stab you etc, usually this is acomplished without deadly force. The closer they get the more likely that the situation will become fatal to either or both the attacker and target. Guns save lives by equalizing the odds and making a predator rethink their choice of prey.

I always carried one in the chamber when I lived in AZ. and always carried openly. What good is a gun without one in the chamber? Maybe a revolver would make more sense, unless you must leave one slot empty in the cylinder under the hammer?

When the entitlements are dismantled, then the potheads among the libertarians can do as they please. Ann demonstrated why entitlements enslave us, Obamacare gives the government power over our bodies, reproduction, and very life. If you are dumb enough to use drugs (and alcohol to excess), you need to do it on your own dime.Addiction is not a disease, it is a character flaw. Libertarians need to self regulate in the absents of external regulation, Anarchists want neither.
I am a libertarian, I believe that Prohibition did not work, the war on Poverty did not work, the war on Drugs did not work, Gun running to Mexico is insane, O. Care will never work, and anything that the Feds get their hands on fails. Our armed forces have not won a war since WWII. So why do Repukes keep holding on to failed policies?
"Our armed forces have not won a war since WWII."
Well, we haven't hard a declared war since WWII, so that's not really a good point to bring up. We've "won" plenty of military engagements.
Ann also demonstrates why the Republicans will never get rid of the entitlement state, as long as they can use it as an excuse to control behaviors they do not like.

Blaming video games is fine, calling for their banning is not, they are protected by the first amendment. Blaming guns is fine, that is protected speech. Banning any guns is unconstitutional, EVEN IF THEY DO CAUSE MASS SHOOTINGS ! (they do not). Because the second amendment guarantees this right.

prosecute the liquor store owner for knowingly employing an illegal alien! Waters should confront the employer.

The guns were stolen, but he was going to register them!
