Chris Hadlock 20 hours, 41 minutes ago on Monday event in Steamboat aims to spread awareness about gun violence

What say you about the Home Depot shooter in Detroit? She is clearly in need of more training. What about the gentleman that killed those kids over their load music? There are more examples of inappropriate use but those will suffice for now?

Ken, The 2nd amendment is clear in that citizens have a right to bear arms. However, it is also clear that regulation is allowed and even the Heller Vs DC case states that common sense regulation is allowed.

In my opinion, anyone that chooses to exercise their right to CCW, also chooses to accept the responsibility that comes with that decision. Those people that feel the need or responsibility to be armed in public spaces should be required to undergo the same kind of Good Vs. Bad training that our Law Enforcement Officers go thru. I would observe that the general population does not have the mentality to know when to use deadly force and when to leave it in their holster. Just like having a drivers license there are requirements. These already exist in the realm of Hunter safety training and the like, but it too many cases we have armed civilians running around out there with absolutely no idea when it would be appropriate to use deadly force.

For the record, I am a gun owner and have been for my entire life. I support the 2nd amendment, but believe that there is room for compromise in this argument. Simply stating that more guns make us safer is a dead end. For instance, there were at least 3 armed CCW holders within 50 yards of the most recent Oregon incident and all of them to a person chose not to become involved.


Chris Hadlock 3 days, 20 hours ago on From the Editor: Picking our battles

Seems to me that pubic money paid for the salaries of each and everyone of these individuals, Public money paid for the investigation, public money paid for the report and public money will pay for the replacements.

The only thing the public does not know is what exactly have we been paying for?

Sorry Pilot, but this is a completely bogus excuse.

This is a fight that should have been "picked"

The public deserves to know what these people were doing with our time and money because it certainly does not seem to be what we thought we were paying for. Allowing the City to bury this investigation will lead to more of the same. It is time to discuss these issues in public with ALL of the facts on the table. COME ON MAN!

Be clear Ken.

ACORN was convicted of creating fake voter registrations. Largely by individuals who chose that technique to boost their personal paycheck. To my knowledge there is not even a single fraudulent vote associated with ACORN that was actually cast at the ballot box.

From the link you provided:

"The case involved a conspiracy to provide illegal financial bonuses to voter registration canvassers for exceeding their daily quotas. Nevada law forbids the practice on the theory that such bonuses provide an incentive for canvassers to file bogus registrations."

No Ken, I will not view anymore of those videos. Frankly, they make me sick!

So far, 5 states and and HHS investigation have found no wrong doing by PP.

Why do investigators continue to find no wrong doing? Is it possible that this is a made up controversy just like ACORN was? There are way too many unanswered questions here to have formed such black and white opinions unless your mind is already made up.


Chris Hadlock 2 weeks, 5 days ago on Dennis D. Brust: Illegal immigration carries high cost in U.S.

Dennis writes "True facts will help every citizen understand the problem of illegal immigration." and the proceeds to claim that:

"Thirty percent of all federal inmates have entered this country without legal status; 30,000 are released every year into the general population."

The actual numbers.

73,665 The number of inmates in state and federal prisons who are not U.S. citizens, according to the latest prison population report from the Bureau of Judicial Statistics. That's about 5% of the total prison population.

I am not trying to dispute the conclusions of this letter, but it would be nice if "facts" were actually recognizable as the truth.
