Those arguing for the ability to have assault weapons in their home conveniently forget that the weapons they're counting on for protection are four times more likely to wound or kill one of their own family members in an accidental shooting. The only "right" they're advocating for is the right to be dangerously stupid.

The sheriffs were elected to uphold the law, not interpret the constitution. Everyone thinks they are an expert on one thing or another these days.

There are two words I would use to describe Pine County Sheriff Robin Cole. The first one is PATRIOT the second one is HERO. You know what word I would really like refer to him as some day???? GOVERNOR.

Back in the day, this would have been treason. Ahhh, the good old days when people respected the office.

So because you don't support whatever the President wants to unilaterally impose upon us serfs, that it now tantamount to what the Conderates did in post Civil War? And we wonder why there is lack of civil discourse because your opponents are painted as enemies of the state?
