For those following Rick Stanley's case in Colorado...

The Libertarian U.S. Senate candidate was arrested in mid-December for carrying a pistol openly at a public rally celebrating the Bill of Rights.

Apparently, the print media in Colorado reporting on the case either have extraordinarily incompetent reporters, or...

...they lie to shed a negative light on Second Amendment advocates.

She didn't turn around and kept walking, just like he said. But he shot her anyway.

She heard people calling 911.

3 weeks later she is weak, spends her time sleeping, her teeth are wired together (one of the bullets shattered her jaw), and she has no hearing in her right ear. She is afraid to be left alone and has nightmares about being robbed at gunpoint -- 1 of them is still loose.

"But she is happy that Tampa police arrested 2 of the 3 kidnappers," the newspaper claims.

KABA NOTE: If she had been armed and trained, the police might have all 3 -- in bodybags.

--Hunting is one of the first things blamed for "threatening animals," but nowhere else in the article is it mentioned, or the claim justified.

"It is hard to imagine parties more apart than on the issue of gun control and gun ownership."

"Clearly there must be middle ground wide enough to drive a tractor-trailer through, a gap separating law-abiding gun owners from those who would deny them their basic constitutional right of gun ownership."

"Or separating your basic law-abiding gun owner from those who believe they hold an unfettered right to brandish about any kind of weapon anywhere they might please."

Some weapons can also be "easily converted" to fully automatic machine guns. "The M-1 carbines in particular are easy to convert to full auto,"...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins ... Society is in every state a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. — THOMAS PAINE
