Tosches believes he writes "humor" but I know he does not and never has. I have challenged him to a "debate" with myself as his opponent but he has not responded. I consider anyone who attempts to infringe on my Rights in any way as my enemy. Tosches has backed down from debating but has not backed off from instigating the loss of my Rights.
The First Amendment has no room for hate speech or brainwashing. Since The Independent is a tool of my enemy whenever I see a stack of them I will take them all. It is my first step in protecting my Rights and I do not care that it is illegal by city ordinance. City government, state or foreign government I do not heed when tyranny rears its ugly head. I cannot allow the tantrums of the press to attempt to rule the People, the people who have the power to stop any assault on our freedom and our Rights.
When The Independent summons their personal city government who in turn will call on their hired guns to come for me please bring a valid warrant and the media. I wish to share with as many as I can what an American can do as the first step in the battle to not be infringed of my Rights. Please join me and spread the word to others that The Independent has got to go. May they now "Celebrate Adversity" and cease with the bigotry. Time to stop the clamor for the loss of my Rights while they abuse theirs to the point of treason.
Rich, I am an US Army Veteran. an attorney and cpa that drives Mercedes, lives in a 4,000 square foot house and has an AR15. Your biased an immature remarks are incredible. I suppose that is why you are stuck writing garbage for such a small rag as you do. Comments like yours only demonstrate your ignorance. Nevertheless, my AR15 will still ensure your right to puke out your vile garbage.
This ignorance of the person that wrote this piece is astounding. But liberals usually think they are thousands of times more intelligent than they actually are.
Yeah, me too am big dum dum. Me only get liddle bit of edjamacation at little collij on Charles River in other liberal state, collij called Harvard. Me may be big dum dum with $20,000 truck, but me know enemies foreign and domestic and this guy is definitely the latter. Over the past 227 years there have been lots of people who have helped make this country great and many who have defended (and died) for us. This guy is not only one who does NOT make this country great, he is one of the many who are trying to DESTROY it. Talk about someone who has no education, this guy is the pot calling the kettle black. I do not live in Colorado, but had been in talks with some financial backers about where to set up a new manufacturing operation in related to health and medicine. Central USA is our focus because of the ease with which we will be able to distribute finished products to all corners of the contiguous 48 while having access to good air freight for sales/distribution elsewhere. Guess which state just got bumped off the list, and now Omaha, Wichita, Kansas City and Oklahoma City are now considered and Denver is NOT. Colorado is NOT business friendly. I would not want to expend venture capital in a place that might decide to NEXT, take away the right to assemble or to speak freely. (The adage of killing the Second first, and the First second.
I empathize with people of CALorado not knowing what has hit them, and the rest of us should take note at what can happen when communists are allowed to take over.
Your an idiot. "I won't bother committing a crime because the laws in place limit the capacity of the magazine for the stolen weapon intended for use are illegal to own".....said no criminal, ever. I stumbled across your blog while searching for magpul parts in a search engine and I'm mortified that you'd even post this. It's safe to assume you don't own a weapon of any kind because in the fluffy, beautiful world you live in they just aren't needed. Just focus on the 200 jobs lost to change the capacity from 30 to 15 which won't stop, impede, or change the outcome of any other tragedy that takes place on American soil because someone goes off grid and commits a horrible act. Making the comparison about magazines and drunk driving.......really? Write about sports or something and stay out of the gun control debate please. You sound like every other anti-gun advocate that neglects the fact that for every shooting rampage that happens there are literally millions of citizens armed to the teeth that are completely peaceful and of no threat to anyone. Lets ban hammers, sling shots, and bowling balls while we are at it.
WOWW mistar .....u sher did ewz allota big words n thiz herr artacal...to badd imma two simpal to under stand moste of em....i gess ill jus go shoot sum propane tankz out n da wuuds ova yonder way......what a fucking joke this guy is? balls....remember when most guys had them?
Sounds like a certain screed-spewing, no-talent hack is jealous.
Senator Feinstein made fun of citizens armed with bazookas...but that is exactly what the 2nd amendment is all about, keeping the government in check by an armed citizenry.
Not only do we need bazookas and automatic weapons, we need fighter jets and helicopter gun ships, surface to air missiles and nerve gas to fend off Obama's ultimate assault on us.
How do you liberals constantly get away with blatantly lying? First, a AR15 was not used in Newtown contrary to endless repetitious false reporting by you folks with a agenda. Second, as others have stated, 30 round magazines were not used in other mass shootings you aledge.
It's getting really old listening to the constant beeping from liberal robots like yourself who obviously are ingorant of facts and are even more philosophically challenged.
dear fdohlin: Everyone used to work at the Gazette.
RR; You used to "work" at the Gazette didn't you?
I used to enjoy reading the Independant untill they allowed such bigoted and unfounded ranting on subjects the author obviously has no basis of knowledge or understanding of. This type of argument is why I dont even begin to talk to liberals in tis state of mind, waste of my time and energy. Everyone against this "editorial" ranting are right. There isn't a need for any of the gun laws passed yesterday AND at a cost the the Colorado Citizens of $1.65 million a year. I do agree that background checks are a necessary evil but the increase in spending only means that new tracking software will be installed to "register" the names of the gun owners that have passed the background check. We all know the ATF and FBI do have the capacity to track the guns purchased in the last 20 years and have been asking for better ways of doing so. Allowing the background checks to be done in an instant manner has only opened the door to the new needs. Anther point of interest is that the media has reported that the 2 bills "killed" are actually set back untill 5-10-2013 for reconsideration, this means the increase in court time and cost as well as our 2nd amendment right to protect ourselves on campuses are still in jeapordy. I bet Ranger "potty mouth" Rick is still dancing in his Cedar Heights or equal home thinking up new ways to insult the great people of El Paso county ( I might add he was fired from The Gazzette not too long ago for this reason as well as his inability to work with his bosses). His great past with the Los Angeles Times ought to be noted as well, maybe you need to go back.
How much of taxpayer money is being spent on using staff to plan these community awards giveaways and public relations? It seems our Mayor has staff out singing his praises and informing the media of his accolade giveaways. I hope real City work is being accomplished.
The author's ignorance of gun culture is astounding. His collectivist views are insulting, we are all individuals.
Rich, why don't you get back to us on how unintelligent shooters are after you learn how to mil a target at unknown distance past 600 yards, in your head without a calculator, while laying motionless in a puddle of mud and slime, correct for 10 mph cross wind, and get a hit?
A Kalifornia refugee starting off his "journalism" with a string of ad hominem attacks in an attempt to make his Colorado conform to the failed socialist state he fled.
Why don't you leave Colorado and go back to Kali where they already have the gun laws you desire?
It's good to see that you're back on your meds...
In breaking news: due to the sequester, Ranger Rich is canceled.
Wow. Proving once again that the Indy is worth what I pay for it, your smug, bigoted coverage of a civil-liberties question is replete with stereotypes and innuendo. Suffice to say that I’m a college-educated homeowner of a residence rather more substantial than a trailer – but what after all is “wrong” with trailers, if that’s all someone can afford? The only thing that was missing from your screed was the sexual innuendo. Yes, I am “compensating” for something; that I may not be able to physically best an attacker and that I can’t throw a rock at 900 feet-per-second but my pistol can.
Here’s the deal; it’s not the business of the “state” (writ large or small) how much ammunition I chose to carry, whether or not I choose the means to protect myself on a college campus, anymore than it is your business how many books I own or whom I choose to love.
You don’t get it – and you won’t, simply because my exercise of my God-given, Constitutionally guaranteed liberties – all of them - is none of your business, so I really don’t care if you understand or approve.
How ‘bout we DO move MagPul to El Paso County and the Indy to Boulder?
Thank you for being steadfast in your efforts to make this a safer world for us all. You are asking that we use a little common sense and limit or slow down the number of bullets that can be shot from a firearm at one time. Based up on some of the comments you have recieved, you would believe that you were out to disarm everyone in this country and assume a dictatorship--this is completely unfounded. There is a place for firearms and there also need to be common sense restrictions on firearms. I think your ideas make common sense.
I feel sad that the Colorado Springs area is populated by some many hateful and ignorant persons. This was one of the finest articles ever written on the subject and Mr. Tosches had the courage and facility to express what most of the people in this country feel. Perhaps the people who had such negative comments could plan a retreat to India or Tibet high on a mountaintop where fear and hate could be transformed into compassion for the children of Newtown and all of the others impacted by lack of gun control. Thank you, Mr. Tosches- you represent most of us.
