Re: “Reader: A proposal to stem gun violence without taking away anyone's Second Amendment rights

Hmm, maybe we can do something to make males feel less emasculated? One way or another such a person will find a way to act out against his perceived oppressors. Taking away the "masculinity" of firearms doesn't change the root causes of the problem. That is, if your supposed solution would be effective anyways.

Re: “Starr Kempf statues return to the Springs at the Ent Center for the Arts

I can remember when these were sitting out at the Kempf place. It was always interesting and fun to drive by there.

Re: “Reader: The lights on Caramillo Street go way back

I used to live in the neighborhood and always enjoyed walking under the lights at Christmas time. A great neighborhood tradition!

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.
