GPS. On city buses. Are we afraid they're going to get lost? Is Transit really that carless or inept?
Purdue University: More guns in schools equal fewer deaths during active shooter situations.
"...However, the real reductions came when teachers carrying concealed firearms were supplemented with a resource officer, the results show.
In the scenario where five percent of teachers were carrying concealed guns and a resource officer was present, casualties dropped an astonishing 69.2 percent and response time dropped 59.7 percent. Finally, when 10 percent of teachers were carrying concealed firearms and a resource officer was present, casualties fell by 70.2 percent and response time was reduced by 62.7 percent..."
A headline & accompanying story that must be a lie; yet more evidence of Hillary's Vast Right Wing Conspiracy© : How Chicago Became ‘Chiraq’
"On Easter weekend, 45 people were shot in the city, six of them children."
Bald-faced lies and fabrications. Media malfeasance, that's what it is. Good Socialist Rahm is running the show in the President's hometown, where everyone knows guns are illegal.
Top Medicare billers are huge Democrat donors. Dr. Salomon Mengen, who raked in $21 million in Medicare reimbursements in 2012, gave 700k to Harry Reid's favorite super pac; which in turn funneled 600k into the campaign to re-elect liberal Senator Robert Menendez. And let's not forget Michael Bloomberg's 6-figure contribution that helped Colorado gun-controllers outspend their pro-2A opponents by better than five to one last year. One wonders if our liberal friends object to that kind of support for their favorite candidates/causes. If not, why?
The caterwauling over Dan Shores can be boiled down to one admonition: Don't feed the trolls.
I've had Zirkel for nearly a decade. Only one brief outage in all that time, the result of a lightning strike on one of their sites.
One wonders how former state senators John Morse and Angela Giron could possibly have become Colorado's first ever recalled state legislators. They and their gun-control cohorts like Michael Bloomberg outspent the recall effort by nearly six to one. How is it that the recallers weren't rendered "mute" under the weight of that disparity, Lynn?
Corruption and power = moths & flames. That lefties like Lynn are bellyaching about McCutcheon is nothing more than theater. There is no shortage of megarich kingmakers on both sides who are salivating at the prospect of throwing even more dollars into the cauldron. When it comes to impeding the mischief makers, the best first step would be to limit the power of elected officials and of government itself. Which would obviously not end corruption; the most cynical (& probably realistic) evaluation is that it would make corruption more challenging in the public arena and less so in the private sphere. So the question becomes which is worse - public or private corruption. The undeniable answer is the former, since government is so much more immense, powerful, centralized and arbitrary.
Many concealed carry instructors offer free training for teachers. Another option to consider.
The Coffee Party is an anemic 'me too' attempt to ride the groundswell of activism that became the Tea Party. Founded by liberal Obama volunteer Annabel Park, who wailed (with a straight face) that the media was too supportive of the Tea Party. I believe it was Goebbels who famously asserted the utility of lying - when proclaimed loud enough and long enough, the sheeple will accept it as truth.
Here's Ms. Park & company a few years ago, gathered together for a mutual back rub. I'm especially impressed with the dude who says he's there for "empathy, collective consciousness, and progress." I suspect he would have been equally at home with these clowns.
