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..."

Well Tom, there are now over 46,000 citizens of El Paso County who have permits. Let's take a look at how many of them have been involved in unjustified shootings to see if it is adequate or not. And the answer is? Zero!!! Not one single CHP holder in El Paso County has been involved in an unjustified shooting. The media virtually never reports on that aspect of it, as it goes against their typical biased position against personal gun ownership and this stat just ruins all of their arguments.

Re: “Skorman proclamation recognizes Indigenous People's Day

Hey Can O Korn - How do you discover something when others already live there?
Vikings visited here way before Columbus. Then Europeans came here and brought their white government. This is how white was established as power. So in a way Columbus day is just another white power day.

Re: “Cory Gardner wants less red tape around medical marijuana research

Suzi you should send Gardner an email or call him if you are that serious.

Let' remember that the GOP has a long standing tradition of using marijuana to attract young voters.

Re: “Former County Democratic Party leader forms new club to keep politicking

Did you bother to read the article? Because it wasn't me that talked shit about the leadership of the local party to an Indy reporter. Bitch at me all you want... while ignoring the divisiveness that Liz generated to create this article. Yay you.

Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

Would it be okay if people who are truly progressive -- that is, renouncing violence in all forms -- declined the so-called "protection" that this group of mixed up people wants to offer? I understand that neo-nazis and reactionaries are bad and can be violent against those who oppose them, but nothing is to be gained by empoloying those same tactics. We need to work for a world free of violence and guns, and learn different, peaceful methods if our world is to evolve and survive. I suspect that the turn out will dwindle at future protests that this group is involved with, as few anti-Trump policy people feel comfortable with their actions. They might as well be working for the other side if they are going to be introducing guns on the side of the opposition movement. I never thought I'd hear the words "guns" and "progressive" used in the same sentence.....

Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

Owning a weapon does not make you a violent person nor does it make you right or left. Many threats were made against local protestors. What would you do? Just quit showing up? Then those threatening win.

The 2nd amendment is for all. These people have been training and continue to train in proper use and care. They are not stock piling weapons and ammunition as so many did just because there was a black President.

If owning a rifle or gun means you are planning a war then we need to review the 2nd amendment. You cannot live in a state that allows open carry then complain when someone does.

Don't like it? Go vote to change the 2nd amendment or open carry. Get active quit word whipping those who follow the law of the land.

Re: “Cory Gardner wants less red tape around medical marijuana research

Dear S.Senator Gardner, I know that some people have this image of stoners when when thinking about cannabis. Smoking anything either tobacco or cannabis at first glance has that connotation. However, please know that it is also a much better choice for souls like myself who have been suffering for decades with fibromyalgia, chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia and glaucoma. Cannabis becomes a gateway out of all the opiates, Benzos and other expensive and other both expensive & damaging prescriptions I have been on for a long time.Call me 731-613-8822. I have more to say than can fit into this little box. With Respect, Susi Marcy- Sisco

Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

I'd pay good money for the limp-wristed sissies to start a "redneck revolution". They think they can just go buy a cheap ass gun,shoot a few rounds at a paper target and take on millions of Americans who were born and raised shooting and killing shit since they were old enough to pick up a gun. On top of that,the overwhelming majority of the military,vets and cops would be on our side as well so the fairies wouldn't last five fucking minutes in a real gun fight.

Re: “Colorado election system targeted

Scanning the voter registry in Colorado involves a google search for colorado voter registry. The results are about 20 websites that have the entire database on- line. If youre a registered voter and are not law enforcement or VIP then you will find all your personal identity info there along with your party affiliation. Some yokels thought this would curb voter fraud. If you dont like this data for free, you can purchase it in a format ready for printing targeted mailers and junk advertising, from the State of Colorado, some fees and charges may apply. See coloradovoters. info
