"Flanigan Crawford stated she was holding it for a friend and forgot she had it."
Ugh. If you're going to hold some meth, even "for a friend", at least don't admit to knowing anything about it! Kris Hammond can't even help her now. Reminds me of Hunter S. Thompson's advice to then-President Clinton: "Just deny it all, Bubba, just deny it all."
“You look at the power plant in Nucla shutting down, that town is already dead. If that happens here in Steamboat, I think the impact’s going to be tremendous,” Baumgardner said. “You’ll see a certain impact.”
Aside from Nucla vs. Steamboat being pretty much the ultimate apples-and-oranges non-sequitir...
No, we won't. 25 years ago, I was a chairlift operator at Copper Mountain. The grid in metro Denver went down big time. Summit County ski area lift-operation departments were asked to scale back on power consumption.
The high-speed quads all had diesel backup motors capable of continuous duty, as did other critical lifts. Less-used lifts had evacuation-only motors, typically SBC/LBC depending on how many towers/chairs. I was on R & S lifts that day, both closed for two hours until grid power was restored in Denver.
Knowing 6-8 years in advance of power plants shutting down which have reached the end of their service lives anyway, affects the local economy, how exactly? Rep. Baumgardner? Ken Mauldin? Seriously, what the heck are you guys even talking about?
How? Y'all know I hate agreeing with Wedel, but seriously Ken, how?
Sorry about yer goat. OTOH... wtf?
A Constitutional Convention isn't needed to overturn an amendment that doesn't say what you think it does to begin with. I think American citizens should continue to have a right to an armed militia, nothing to do with banning handguns would interfere with that, so your argument is non-sequitur.
Exactly how folks have come to believe the 2nd Amendment was meant to grant an individual right to firearms for self-defense or whatevs. ;) Think the NRA isn't aware of how the Big Lie works?
So just keep saying it, and maybe I'll eventually stop pointing out it isn't true. Way to prove Godwin's Law, btw. ;)
Good. I don't understand why folks believe the NRA is a pro-citizen group that would never lie about the 2nd Amendment. It's a manufacturer lobby i.e. a special interest funded by those who profit by manufacturing firearms, and therefore everything spewed out by the NRA ought to be taken with waaay more than a solitary grain of salt.
Talib shot himself. What an idiotic dumbass (hey, it's Talib we're talking about, talent aside)!
"Maybe you meant to say 'you can still be a victim of crazy people.'"
I'm sorry, but what's wrong with saying "you can still be the victim of a gun?" Because there was that 3-yr-old who accidentally killed himself with one of his LEO parents' service weapons out in Stagecoach the other day. What was that boy a victim of, otherwise? Violence? No. Crazy people? No. Mental illness? No. Ignorance of gun safety? YES!!! But good grief, 3-yr-olds shouldn't have access to loaded guns because guns are inherently dangerous killing weapons.
I take this to mean that having less guns around, would lead to fewer tragedies, especially where children are concerned. Especially when LEO parents can't keep their children from being killed by their own gun, but you say it's inherently got nothing to do with guns, per se? And keep insisting that more guns will lead to fewer gun deaths? How's that?
"What's common sense (again) and easily observable is that mass shootings don't happen at public gun ranges, they happen in gun free zones."
More of a mass accident, than a mass shooting, but it seems to me that places where people carry and shoot weapons are inherently unsafe.
"Because of his diagnosis and hospitalization, that individual would not have qualified to legally purchase a gun. Mental patients shouldn't have access to firearms."
Unless they're laid out for him at a shooting range, like in this case? Two veterans shot dead by someone who couldn't pass a background check... but of course didn't need one to just "borrow" guns from a shooting range.
Seems a rather obvious loophole.
