Re: “John Morse: We must fix the assault weapon problem

Let's face it, folks, loons on the left want to get rid of ALL guns. They won't say that up front just like their president wouldn't say we could keep our doctors. They use incrementalism as a tactic. Yell and scream over this and that. Two steps forward, one step back. Lie, come to wrong conclusions, whatever it takes to achieve their goal. The John Morses in the world might get recalled, but like a bad penny and the Eveready bunny they just keep coming back and back and back. They beat the same old drum again and again because it's the only instrument they can play. Sooooo predictable.

Re: “John Morse: We must fix the assault weapon problem

The left just doesn't get it. For crying out loud, use some logic. Looks aside, there's little difference between a (so-called) assault rifle and a semi-automatic hunting rifle. Both fire when the trigger is pulled. Both have magazines that can be replaced quickly. True, some magazines hold 30 rounds and no hunter needs 30 rounds to kill animals, but if so-called assault rifles are banned, how long will it be before the left goes after all rifles?

Final question and I quote from this article: what does a "deranged man (in Orlando who) declared his allegiance to ISIS and (hates) gays" have to do with millions of Americans here and elsewhere, who own one or more (so-called) assault rifles? Do these millions of law-abiding citizens constitute a danger to society? Do their rifles suddenly jump out of the safes and mow down innocent people? The problem isn't guns; it's who owns or gets possession of them.

Loons like John Morse won't agree with me because they are after guns. If it were not guns they would be after something else because that's what loons do -- they look for solutions in all the wrong places. The logical answer lies in identifying crackpots and having a better system to keep guns out of their hands.

Re: “One year later

Bill Elder is trying to do the right thing, so that's a good start. He did a good thing, too, in bringing in Lorne Kramer to analyze where the department is, and what it needs to do to get to where it wants to go. Time will tell how far this will go because police supervisors can never please everyone up and down the ranks. The head of the agency simply has to "do the right thing" and not worry about the rest. The final suggestion is he should never promise more than he can deliver, and that includes talking to the press too. Do that and the trust level will build and build. Fail to do it and trust at all levels will plummet.
