CO: Douglas County Sheriff: 'Red Flag Bill' could have
Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock calls himself "a Second Amendment Guy." "I think everyone should have guns. If you want them you can have them," said Spurlock. "Except for two groups of people. If you're a criminal out committing crimes, I don't think you should have guns. But also if you're in a mental health crisis, we should be able to both protect your from yourself and the community."

I have long believed, and often said, that one of America’s greatest threats is national news media that fail to tell the truth. When members of the news media ignore truth and, instead, distort it to deceive Americans to fit their own agenda, the democratic principles upon which our nation was founded are threatened.

Gun control activists are fighting to end Del Mar gun shows by claiming such shows are not “healthy” for the area’s community. Individuals rallying beneath the gun control hashtag “never again” and auspices of NeverAgainCA are specifically targeting the Crossroads of the West Gun Show. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that a push to end the gun show repeatedly comes after a high profile public attack. Such a push occurred after the December 14, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School attack and most recently after the February 14, 2018, attack on Mary Douglas Stoneman High School.

Absolutely, say the anti-gun lefties. They would rather leave kids defenseless from kindergarten through high school than trust willing teachers to protect them with concealed-carry weapons. Teachers idolized as brilliant, selfless saints in the classroom are apparently too incompetent, irresponsible, or just plain stupid to be trained to capably operate a firearm.

Tuesday night in Edmonds, myself, Dave Ross, Jason Rantz and King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht will discuss and debate in what we have billed as a discussion about “guns and our children.” There is much to discuss: Why government employees ignore existing laws, which enable murderers like the Parkland killer, the Virginia Tech murderer, and many more? Why do gun control advocates and their partners in the mainstream media ignore the fact that it is gang violence — which we could attack without a Second Amendment issue — that is responsible for most murders with guns?

A Detroit police officer who was charged with four felonies after allegedly pulling his service pistol on two men outside a downtown Detroit bar Sunday morning has been suspended, the city’s police chief said Monday.

Officer Willie Fortner, 25, of the 5th Precinct was arraigned Monday on two counts of felonious assault, two counts of felony firearm, and domestic violence after the alleged incident outside a bar at Fort Street and Beaubien near Greektown.

Prosecutors say Fortner assaulted his girlfriend following an argument inside the bar, and when two Good Samaritans tried to intervene, he allegedly retrieved his gun from the trunk of his car and pointed it at the two men.

To become competent with your defensive handgun, you must practice. But, practice consumes money and time. Training courses are a way to maximize your time and money because they’re controlled and conducted under the watchful eye of a capable instructor. This is why Gunsite Academy has been in business more than 40 years. However, few of us have a week or $1,500-plus lying around to take advantage of what such a school offers. There is an affordable option, however, one that can fill the gap until vacation and greenbacks become available. You can drastically improve your defensive-handgun skills by developing a budget practice plan, and most importantly, by sticking to it.

The world of online dating just got more tedious, as one of the largest online community for singles, just can’t keep its grimy hands out of the political cookie jar.

In latest transgression from the popular device app, the company ran a promotion on Sunday where every match made between members resulted in a donation to Planned Parenthood.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down... a person cannot be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)
