Gun toters applaud the mayor

“Hey, I forgot to bring the hot dogs for a picnic, but I did remember the heat.” (Image: KELO-TV screenshot)

Like I have said in the past, I support 2nd Amendment rights. While some may applaud the mayor for changing this policy, he really had no choice;

And the group is happy you can also go to the ball diamond and the bike trails, even the decision was made because previous policy stood on shaky legal legs.

But hey, pretty soon we are going to challenge those ‘shaky legs’ with a text ban. Oh boy.

Legal right, okay. But why??? What are these folks afraid of, that they feel the need to ‘protect’ themselves at McKennen Park, etc.

Trust me, I know where you are coming from. But as a person who defends 1st amendment rights, I also defend 2nd rights.

How would these people feel if I yelled ‘FUCK’ as loud as I could on a public sidewalk next to their church while in service?

l3wis – They’d probably draw their 357-magnum and shoot you. They’re the passive-aggressive types.

Big guns and small brains. More guns make up for no ability to have a solid intellectual discussion. Kind of like the schoolyard bully threatening through intimidation so you walk away. Now we try to have a convo and worry the quiet one in the crowd blows you away.

I understand the 2nd amendment and totally disagree with the modern NRA.

My opinion is that the people that feel they have to have a gun with them wherever they go, are the ones that have a tendency to run off at the mouth and make enemies instead fo true friends.

One more sign he might be running for Governor.

A thought has occurred, if Sub-prime Mike runs for governor and wins in our Citizen’s United world of unlimited campaign funds from unknown sources of today, what will he do with the state’s pension program and the trust funds?

There has been a fight going back at least 25 years over the control of the fund and how it can be invested. It has consistently been one of the most successful pension programs in America due to strong fund managers, leaders and performance.

What damage could a rich former banker, with a bunch of ‘friends’ with Wall Street brains, do getting a hold of the state’s retirement program? More funds for SubPrime’s former company to use?

This week’s pension discussions now makes me look deeper into possibilities.

Joan and Testor15. I really think you miss judge many gun owners. I think that you just have a low opinion of all gun owners because you disagree with them. There are many gun owners out there that are very nice and don’t have an attitude.
