Re: “Reader: We are killing ourselves

Maybe if the government agents to whom we pay our taxes did their jobs? The latest California shooter was not legally eligible to possess firearms. Yet when his neighbors (including one he killed) called police on multiple occasions to complain about him target practicing at all hours the local law enforcement failed to take action. Merely enforcing the tough laws passed in California would have prevented this attack by returning the shooter to jail.

Then there's the Texas church killer. If those federal employees in the Air Force had done their jobs, he wouldn't have been able to buy the weapons he used that bloody day.

If you can show me that I can rely on the government agencies that gun grabbers like yourself maintain is all we need to protect us, I might consider relinquishing the firearms I posses for self defense. But to say that we don't need them now is total foolishness.

Re: “Air Force Academy concludes racism investigation

Can't people figure out that if you try to cause trouble by lying about racist acts, all you are doing is providing a reason for people to discredit any reports of racism?

Re: “This ain’t the Summer of Love

Both the Progressive Mayor of Berkeley CA, Jesse Arreguin and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have denounced Antifa's violent tactics. Arreguin has gone so far as to want Antifa to be classified as a gang or militia. Even Noam Chomsky has spoken out against them. They aren't what the average American want to be associated with, and Democrats, and their media friends, have realized this and will be rapidly tossing the black clad thugs under the proverbial bus.

Re: “Reader: We are a nation of sadists and sociopaths

Please Mr. Everhart, stop beating around the bush. What do you really think about our nation?

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

Good luck trying to vote him out. He was almost ousted during last years county convention, but stomped his opponents in the primary and the general elections. He'll only be out of office if he decide to leave or the Republican leadership wants him out.

Re: “More on fatal crash involving El Paso County GOP chairman

It doesn't take a lot of force to dent the bodywork of a newer model vehicle. I doubt the velocity of the SUV would be considered excessive enough to be described as "such speed". That being said, Trevor Dierdorff was certainly at fault, and "careless" would be an excellent description of his actions leading to the accident.

Re: “Case file paints picture of a "neighborhood watchman" killing in self-defense

The moment Jesse leaned in through the window of Rogers vehicle and (presumably) tried to grab Rogers gun he made it a self defense act on Rogers part. Rogers is not legally obligated to leave an area just because someone he is in conflict with is there. Why didn't Jesse leave when he saw the gun? Maybe Jack Rogers is getting away with murder, but Jesse Garcia made it easy for him.
