Opinion: Britain to the EU: Good riddance

The EU terms are terms the US would never accept. No one can blame the 17 million that voted for the exit. Sometimes you have to suffer a little to have an independent nation in control of its own domestic and trade policies.

Letter to the editor: Weapons ban

Dennis,

Marc's idea is discriminatory and offensive. It will disenfranchise the poor and minorities from their 2nd amendment right. You can't tax an individual to exercise a right. Apply Marc's concept to any other amendment and see how far you get. The republicans are trying to do the same thing with voter ID and are getting nowhere.

"I have no faith in the government of the United States to do their jobs to protect "we, the people." - Mike

Which is why we need to rely on ourselves and not the government.

It's sad really. The chorus of eliminating any personal possession of a firearm is getting louder. Those that sing that tune have never been a victim of a violent attack.

Well Paul we know from Mason and Madison that the bill of rights is a restriction on government not the other way around so lets hope they start there.

How about you have a 10 day wait before you get to exercise your 1st, 4th, and 5th, amendment?

Hmmm....didn't think so. Don't like the 2nd? Change the Constitution.

NO!

Because poor people deserve the same access to their 2nd Amendment as the rich.

Letter to the editor: Weapons ban

"This idea that by outlawing one type of destructive weapon you will open the door to outlawing all types of firearms is stupid, ridiculous, self-centered and destructive. I’m sure our legal profession is quite capable of assisting our “do-nothing legislators” in crafting legislation that would help eliminate this mass slaughter of human life while at the same time preserving sensible ownership of firearms."-Charley

WRONG! The VA Tech shooter killed 30+ with just a .22 and a 9 millimeter. Semi-automatic hand guns are next.

"I am, indeed, in favor of removing those things from our society. Liberal wishin' and hopin'? Sure it is. Unfortunately it ain't gonna happen."- Greg Cooper

Liberal wishin'? Not even close. It's not Liberal in the least. It's authoritarian. Its delusional. Since you admit it isn't going to happen let people have their poison to at least be fair and equitable. Pot heads get charged with crimes. Alcoholics get to enjoy. It's immoral.

Market reactions due to the bad behavior of some isn't violating any right. Sure its a byproduct that somewhat unfairly punishes people that don't engage in harmful behavior. But by comparison no rights have been violated. That's the difference.

Freedom isn't free Greg. It comes with sacrifice. In this case its market-based involuntary monetary inconvenience but at least people would get to actually own their body. How's that for Liberal wishin?

Federal appeals court: No right to carry concealed weapons in public

“Australia is a good example, Canada is a good example, the U.K. is a good example. Why? Because each of them have had mass killings” she said. “Australia had a huge mass killing about 20, 25 years ago, Canada did as well, so did the U.K. And, in reaction, they passed much stricter gun laws.”

Australia’s mandatory gun buyback program of semiautomatic and automatic rifles and shotguns was enacted after a shooter killed 35 people in 1996. The country bought back more than 650,000 weapons.

“The Australian government, as part of trying to clamp down on the availability of automatic weapons, offered a good price for buying hundreds of thousands of guns,” Clinton said. “Then, they basically clamped down, going forward, in terms of having more of a background check approach, more of a permitting approach, but they believed, and I think the evidence supports them, that by offering to buyback those guns, they were able to curtail the supply and to set a different standard for gun purchases in the future.” - Hillary "assault weapon distributor and civilian killer of the Mid-east Clinton"

That my friends is an advocate for gun confiscation. Each time a politician references the UK and Australia they're praising the success of gun grabbers.

How will potential rape and battered victims have a fighting chance against an attacker in the public sector? Taking away a concealed handgun takes away any ability to level the playing field.

The gun grabbers would rather you be a victim than protect yourself....which by the way is a right. Also, there's no getting around the fact that the 2nd amendment and the bill of rights is a restriction on government not people.

Gun grabbers...you LOSE. You'll never get them and you'll never fool enough people to turn them in. EVER.

"So, you are against laws restricting opiate drugs?"

If you're willing to accept alcohol and tobacco as legal products then yes I am. There's no consistency in the nanny state. If lives and safety were the true motives then alcohol and tobacco would be illegal. Combined they kill around 500K people a year and alcohol in particular plays a huge role in domestic violence and abuse.....a huge variety of crime from armed conflict to murder.

So let me ask you Greg...are you for saving people from themselves with the use of alcohol and tobacco?

People should be able to do what they want as long as it doesn't infringe on the rights of others. Let the chips fall where they may.

The potential and actual effects from personal self inflicted abuse comes with the territory of living a free life. Again we accept this every single day. Why does government get to pick the winners an losers. Prohibition doesn't work. That's a fact.
