Just about every oath taken at every level of law enforcement and military service starts first and foremost with defending the Constitution of the United States. It's their sworn duty to protect it, even against corrupt political usurpation.

Pretty much sums it up other than Denver has its own native liberal history and its not just Californians, but also rust belt and east coast move ins.

If 90% of the population wanted "common sense gun control laws" they would already have been enacted.

And if the LGBT community had the political power that justice Roberts thinks it has,they would already have the right to marry.
The problem is we got politicians who serve the few,the wealthy.

Why doesn't Harry Reid bring an assault weapon / high capacity magazine ban up for a vote in the senate? It's not because of the NRA's lobbying efforts.

Missed this thread yesterday. But the line graph showing New Jersey as a low gun/violent crime state is completely wrong. I live by Newark; there are murders constantly. And the ones that have the guns are the criminals that don't follow any laws anyway.

Can't trust any "facts" posted by abc, nbc, cbs, msnbc, cnn, yahoo, google, etc. They are propoganda machines, not media/news. Thus, the data the post is false. It has been proven to be so. For those of you libs who desire a communist country you should stop whining all the time, you're getting what you want.

The main point behind allowing citizens to have guns was to provide a means for protection against the government should it become too powerful and controlling. So what's happening now? Higher taxes to suppoer the entitled people who never work, can't drink large sodas, can't smoke, etc. Only the criminals live free. And as soon as the libs steal the guns there is no defense against the USSA.

This is BS. The point of the Clause was to maintain "well regulated militias..." These were supposed to act under the orders of governors and State Legislatures. We know them today as National Guardsmen. Creeps who insist on having Bushmasters and other weapons of mass destruction are playing "Army", or looking to create fear and loathing. They are successful at the latter.

Lol, oh really. Do you know why the constitution was written like it was? Because our own government, the English, were ****ing us over and we used our might to get our own country. Seems people forget that we fought against our country in 1776 (and well before).

The stats tell us there is no assault weapons or high capacity clip problem in the USA. We do have a violence/crime problem but assault rifles are not chosen by the criminals as a viable tool to commit crimes. They like small handguns. Why focus on the rifle sportsman and citizens are buying?

Today's job news confirms what I have been saying for 2 years. The real unemployment number is between 12-15% when you count the people that have quit looking for a job.

Keep supporting him though. History will show that his policies were failures. I just fear we won't ever be able to dig out of the hole we are creating with the debt where it is.
Fox news just isn't my cup of tea. It finds reasons to bash the president whatever he does. He can say "Please pass the salt" and they find fault with it. So what your saying is that ALL other media outlets (MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, and CNN) are wrong and liberal, and Fox News is the only one right??

I think he is saying the only reason fox news exists is because of those other networks. There bias towards the left forced the right to start a network of its own.

You realize how many times the left news agencies have been caught doctoring tape and video right? Cmon that is no accident. Like wise I am sure fox has done it also. I do laugh sometimes when i watch fox and they are obviously pushing the rights agenda. But i see it just as much the other way on virtually all the other networks. CBS and MSNBC being really bad.

Right. I am sure the founding fathers were perfectly fine with a central government after just throwing off the chains of one.

The founding fathers drafted the U.S. Constitution to limit the power of the federal government and to preserve the individual, unalienable rights of U.S. Citizens, specifically so they may protect themselves from a tyrannical central government and other criminals.

One of those rights is enumerated in the 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights, and it grants individuals the right to keep and to bear arms.

How inconvenient for the Obama administration and the rest of the liberal progressives.

Because those pushing the take away are the same persons planning to enslave you for your own good because they know what is good for you better than you do and they do not want you having the fire power when they make their move.
