    Littleton and elbert County are both enclaves still rather untouched, but how much longer that will last with the Leftards running Colorado is debatable...

    The mayor of Denver wants safe places for heroin addicts to shoot up, tended by medical personnel...Just for an idea how far it’s fallen...

    I agree. I think that weapons that would be controlled by officers commanding individual soldiers are not meant to be kept or borne by individuals. That is part of the well regulated aspect.

    I have had it with the LUNACY!!

    To my Conservative Friends:

    In the wake of the Florida school shooting, there is an immediate shout-down and shaming of anyone who doesn’t fall in line and say we should immediately pass sweeping new “Gun-Control Laws and Restrictions”!!

    So, I wanted to write this to give you all some ammunition to fight back against the uninformed masses who want to feel woke and noble in the recent ‘gun-grab’ hysteria...

    Ask people - How many people in this country have ACTUALLY read and UNDERSTAND the purpose of our 2nd Amendment???

    Try reading the whole thing and understand why it was written. It is ONE sentence but Critically IMPORTANT to our liberty!

    It wasn’t written so we can hunt! It wasn’t written so we can fight off a burglar or defend against a home-invasion.

    It was written to preserve our right to form a MILITIA to fight back against a tyrannical government.

    I know it’s not a likely scenario, but it is essential element of our freedom and liberty and the founding fathers knew it was critical to keep government in check.

    It may not be needed today, tomorrow, next week, next year or in the next 100 years.

    But that one day when it will be needed, we will thank GOD that it is there and we have preserved our rights to defend ourselves, form our own militia/military and preserve our freedoms.

    Benjamin Franklin famously said “We now have a Republic, if we can KEEP it!”

    So don’t be so quick to give our rights away!! Once you forfeit your rights to the government, what are the odds you will EVER get them back??

    Let me help you with that - ZERO!

    There are numerous reasons why these shootings happened and we should address them all (respect for life, over-medicating our youth, social-media destroying our children, soft/gun-free targets, toxic, hateful media, and much more...).

    Let’s address these REAL reasons rather than blaming the instrument used to kill and we can then avoid the pathetic, expected, uninformed knee-jerk reaction to HAND over our guns, our rights and OUR FREEDOMS to the government just so people can feel noble and woke at their work places, PTA meetings & coffee shops...

    And all I hear is BAN this, RESTRICT that by people who have NEVER read and are so uninformed of the reasons why we have the 2nd amendment.

    I hear people all the time, crap on the 2nd amendment as ‘outdated’ and ‘not relevant today” because weapons are much more advanced and no way could a regiment of “Rag-Tag Fake-Soldiers” defend ourselves against ‘military-style weaponry”...

    I say that to these people:

    Do you realize that our rag-tag militia of, as they say, “regiment of fake soldiers” basically defeated the advance weaponry of the British in the Revolutionary War and won our Independence?

    So, you have the right to poo-poo that rag-tag militia, but you can thank those fake soldiers that fought, died and won your freedom to have the right to denigrate them.

    Don’t be ignorant of our history and founding.

    Hitler and Hirohito both said during WW2 that they could NEVER invade the American mainland and hoped they could be defeated without an invasion because “Behind every blade of grass, there is an American with a firearm defending their land and their home!”

    So, ask your family, friends, coworkers and neighbors to do us all a favor before they spout their woke, PC narrative that the media, academia and Hollywood phonies have spoon-fed them. Please educate yourselves on our history, our founding and the purpose of our 2nd Amendment and our Constitution.

    It was written and defended by men much smarter and braver than most of us. Celebrate that before you jump on board the PC bandwagon and start handing over our rights and freedoms to the government just so you can feel accepted by the masses or just because you don’t feel like debating the topic that is at the core of our freedoms.

    Remember, freedom is hard. Freedom needs to be defended at all times or else we will lose it.

    Embrace it. Defend it, fight for it. It is what makes us great.

    Just my Thoughts.

    Sorry, but I oppose private citizens being able to legally own nerve gas, or a nuclear weapon that could kill tens of thousands of people. Call me crazy.

    The Second Amendment isn’t a suicide pact.

    “Unfortunately, you wouldn’t find Colorado much of an improvement”

    Funny you say that. My Uncle left California years ago and moved to Littleton, CO. He’s retired now and lives in Elbert, CO. But he always says he moved to Colorado to escape the liberal loonies in California....or to have them follow him to Colorado.

    Flick Lives to SoFloFreeper

    Election year 2016 has been a radically unusual moment in the staid, old-fashioned world of newspaper endorsements. Big newspapers have taken unprecedented steps like “un-endorsing” Trump (a totally new thing in newspaper history); even USA Today has stepped out of its usual neutral lane to tell people that under no circumstances should readers vote for Donald Trump as president. As of this writing, Clinton has more than 200 endorsements from daily and weekly newspapers in the United States.

    Two weeks out, and the MSM was so sure of itself. Of course little did they know that evil Russian Bots had infiltrated Facebook and turned the population into zombies using the most effective $10,000 ad buy in world history. An ad so powerful, so crafty, and so Bot-like that no on actually remembers seeing it.

    Funny thing is what Mexicans think was ‘’theirs’ wasn't. It belonged to Spain. And beyond that what stupid Mexicans think was theirs in the American Southwest belonged to peoples such as the Apaches, the Navajo and others who have absolutely no affinity for Mexicans.

    Yes, and back in the day it meant the citizens having the same weaponry as the government. So......that means....

    I don’t understand why Mexicans, who hate America and Americans want to be here?

    Maybe they look at themselves as the invaders to take over the West Coast and SW to return to Mexico.

    Of course I see a down side to it (risk), but life is risky and this is a Constitutional right. Where do YOU draw the line? What firearms/weapons are you comfortable with the public owning? If you say anything less than what I’ve offered, then you are one of the “sensible gun control crowd”...And don’t give me the “but what about the jihadi/ISIS/local Mosque” nonsense...the same can be said about a handgun, vehicle, rocks, chlorine/ammonia mixtures, etc....where do you want to start restricting? Anyone who sets their mind to it can inflict all kinds of damage if they really want to and work at it.

    You would use a nuclear weapon, as a private citizen, within the United States, to “preserve life and freedom.” Hooookay.....

    The tax cuts already are doing a great job making American voters’ lives better. One more thing could be done that would absolutely positively guarantee a GOP win in November. Instead of companies handing out the large bonuses, tell their employees that BECAUSE OF TRUMP’S TAX CUTS the companies will be augmenting the employees’ healthcare benefits.
