Re: “UPDATE: Lamborn silent on Trump embrace of Putin

Alouette de Mer [Lette] wrote "The president is not commander-in-chief of the armed services unless during a time of war".

Your knowledge of the Constitution is lacking. The President is always the CinC of the military. He is only the CinC of the militia "when called into the actual service of the United States", which does not have to be a declared war.

Re: “A map of the red-light camera locations chosen by the city

While reducing yellows may have been done in one or two cases, it certainly is not how these installations normally work.

The bottom line -- if you don't want a ticket for running a red light, DON'T RUN RED LIGHTS! it is really that darn simple, folks. Obey the laws and you won't have any problems.

Re: “Reader: If you don't like wildlife, this isn't the place for you

If you don't like people hunting wildlife, this isn't the place for you. There is absolutely nothing wrong with engaging in wildlife management.

Re: “Hamilton Electors now eying Supreme Court case

The US Constitution leaves how the electors are selected and who they vote for up to the states. It does not say anywhere that electors can vote how they please.

Re: “Reader: There are plenty of things we're not permitted to own already

Huck Mucus,

Other than the minor and common mistake regarding Class III, you were spot on. People who obsessively focus on the object actually are part of the problem and end up exacerbating the very issues they so loudly decry. They end up basically giving the perpetrator an excuse -- after all, it was the evil firearm that was to blame. Eventually, one day, these folks will wake up and realize their approach is actually enabling the people who do wrong because they are shifting the blame, shifting the attention, and ignoring the behavior and the root causes of the behavior. This is why object oriented approaches usually fail.

Re: “Reader: There are plenty of things we're not permitted to own already

Huck Mucus,

One correction. You do not need a Class III to buy or own them. Class III is a Special Occupational Tax and is paid by a dealer of NFA (Title II) firearms holding a Type 1, 2 or 9 FFL. You would not be a dealer and would not have an FFL.
All you need to buy or own one is an ATF Form 4 along with two sets of fingerprint cards, a photo, an extra $200, sometimes a certification of citizenship, and about 6 to 9 months of patience, after which you will get a copy of the completed Form 4 and a Federal Tax Stamp. Oh, and a lot of money because they will set you back several thousand dollars even for a very basic, very used speciman.
