It warms my heart to see a young officer of the law who is both awake to the problem and brave enough to make his statement while in uniform. I pray there are many move officers of the law that see through the systematic attack on the freedoms of this great nation.

I salute you Patriot!

Sheriff Smith of Larimer County says a lot of crap. He doesn't want gun control because his buddies in the Patriot Militia need to get those Bushmasters so they can go to training in the mountains and in Idaho to play "Army". It's a load of crap. I don't care if people have guns or shotguns to go hunting. But when the nutjobs and the paranoid and the tough-guy wannabes want those weapons to either kill or pretend to kill people, that's out of bounds. The Second Amendment was enacted to maintain "well regulated militias", and the hometown militias are not "well regulated". Most are full nutjobs like Nichols and the OK bomber.

Some gun control is necessary, and I think all the recall efforts - if they try them - will fail.

Sheriff made some good points, but when on a lot of tangents and logical fallacies and doesn't offer any solutions himself. Just tries to regurgitate big words and repeats himself. Overly verbose. Wanna get real, Sheriff? Come up with some solutions on your own or actually state them instead of blaming Obama and leftist politicians using fear mongering, which was pretty much what your whole video was. Lol. What a turdlicker.

Nah, he made some very lucid points but the fact is liberals don't want to hear solutions outside of more laws that only affect the general population and not the criminal element. He stated how the shootings in Connecticut were done by someone who killed his mother and then took her guns to perpetrate the crime. So, the crazy kid killed someone in order to kill others. So crazy kid started the mass killings by committing a crime. That crime was "don't murder" but that's exactly what the kid did in order to commit other killings. Again, broken law. The cop in the video also says punish the criminals and he then gives an example of how taking away capital punishment for a violent offender while at the same time enacting punitive punishment for the general populice is backwards thinking.

Now you are calling him names, again, a typical liberal response when you don't agree with someone else. Congrats again, Mr. College Degree guy.

A spade is a spade. He offered no solutions at all. Just more divisiveness and hot air. Not going to lick his balls and crown him king. You guys can do that. Let the circle jerk commence.

And yes, I have a college degree. Most people who aren't piles of **** do.

Why would you expect him to give a solution to your conceived problem?

Let me ask you.... What is the solution?

Personally in my opinion, there is not a solution. Do you have any idea how many millions of guns legal and illegal are in the hands of the people of the United States. The crap that the politician are spewing is just nonsense to appease the weak minded to make them feel good about their every day life. People that own large clips, automatic weapons and such are not going to be turning them over no matter what law is passed.

Every gun owner I know have had this same conversation and let me tell you, not a single one of them give a rats ass what congress passes as law, they are all keeping all of their weapons.

You know the SCOTUS doesn't always make the right decision, don't you?

Dred Scott says hello from the grave.......

Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857), also known as the Dred Scott Decision, was a landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.
It made two main rulings. The first ruling was that African-Americans were not citizens, and therefore had no standing to sue in federal court. The second ruling was that the federal government had no power to regulate slavery in any territory acquired subsequent to the creation of the United States.

To put that much power in the hands of a few individuals is very scary.........

Congress penalizes the law abiding for being law abiding. The odd similarity between these mass shootings(besides the guns, obviously) are the people pulling it off are insane. Rather than find a way to keep crazy away from weapons, they blame the weapon. They then wrap up gun control in "protecting the children" flags and ram reactionary legislation through to 1. remove the right for Americans who have broken no laws to possess weapons or 2. cover their own ass so when these measures fail, they can say "well we did something, right?".

You do have to wonder, however why Americans cannot possess automatic weapons, but our beloved government can sell automatic weapons to mexican drug cartels. Odd, how that works.

Currently the federal government is printing money at a rate of $1T per year, driving the costs of real assets out of range for average Americans.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has linked violent video games to recent shootings and has stated that Congress may have to step in if the industry doesn't change its actions...

Why not. I mean, its not like our government has other issues to deal with.

It'll happen in a state that has harsh gun laws, and gun free zones......
