Re: “Reader: Aren't nuclear weapons arms?

The right is not dependent on the militia, the militia is dependent on the right.

Re: “Reader: Progressives want to steal America as we know it

asawatcher, your ignorance is completely astounding. The protection for firearms is contained in the right. As in individuals have the right to firearms. Furthermore, the term "arms" refers to items of common use for individuals. Semi-autos are very much "common use", so no, you cannot ban all semi-autos.

"Nothing in the bill of Rights or the Constitution call out any rights to possess ammunition for firearms. " - Jasmine

Oh great, another m0r0n trolling that !d!ot!c thought process.

WRONG!!! Ammo is needed to have a functioning firearm and is afforded the same protections as firearms themselves.

Re: “Reader: Either assimilate, or get out

First Patience Kabwasa said:

""Rosalina," who left Honduras when she was 14, and has lived here as a "good law-abiding citizen/immigrant for over 20 years.""

Well, to begin with, if she came here without following the legal processes, then she is here illegally and therefore by the very definition of "law abiding", she is not.

And then, if she is a citizen, then she has nothing to fear from ICE. ICE does not deport citizens.

So Patience really needs to learn what the heck she is talking about.


Then Doug Roman wrote:

"Then Why has Rosalina occupied this country for over 20 years and not applied to become an American citizen?"

Because if Rosalina is here illegally, she cannot apply for citizenship. There is no path to citizenship in DACA.

"People cannot just cross borders illegally and work, pay taxes, etc., and also then choose not to go through the proper naturalization process that millions of others have in becoming citizens."

If they come here illegally, they cannot go through the naturalization process. Only legal residents can do so.

" Either assimilate and become Americans, or get out."

It is perfectly acceptable for legal residents to stay here without becoming citizens.

So Doug, like Patience, really needs to learn what the heck he is talking about.

Re: “Election results start pouring in, voters friendly to gov asks

"So rigged! 140k votes for 1a, 90k total votes for 2a!

Wow! Fifty thousand people voted for one and not the other... Hmmmm..." -- nobuddysfuuul

If you truly do not understand why that is, I have to wonder how the hell you figured out how to post.

1A was a COUNTY issue. There are 674,471 people in the county. 2A was a CITY issue. There are 465,101 people in the city.

Re: “Concealed carry permits in El Paso County double in five years

"Tom Mauser with Colorado Ceasefire, a nonprofit that promotes the prevention of gun violence, wonders if the training requirement for concealed carry is adequate, noting that inexperienced firearms owners can freeze in tense situations. Even highly trained cops miss their target under pressure, he notes. Most people with CCWs [concealed carry weapons], when they get the permit, theyre doing target practice with nonmoving targets, he says. They havent been trained in handling those kinds of situations. There can be situations where they can make things worse."

Studies in the past have shown that armed citizens hit the intended target more often and miss less often than police do.
