Lies — Damned Lies

Go check it out at Stranger’s.

He briefly quotes an article… which I’ll quote even less of here:

“Some speakers called for a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-caliber magazines that allowed killer ***** ***** of Newtown to shoot 20 children and six educators in a span of about six minutes.”

Yes, I removed the shooter’s name.

There are no such things as a “high-caliber magazines”.

Additionally, the Connecticut shooter most certainly did not use any sort of military-style rifle for his executions. There have been accounts that the coroner’s report indicated that all murders were committed with handgun calibers; and we know that the police retrieved an EBR from the shooter’s conveyance.

And, by all accounts, he had far more than six minutes to accomplish his evil acts.

You Don’t Need a Fire Extinguisher

Would these qualify as high-capacity, chemical-laden, assault extinguishers with no legitimate fire-quenching purpose?

You don’t need a fire extinguisher — just call the fire department. They’ll save you.

Oh, and let’s not forget that there is no mention of fire extinguishers in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.

I mean, why would somebody want to have an extinguisher unless they were planning to start a fire somewhere?

County Sheriffs Association of Colorado Throws Their Hat in the Ring

The CSOC has thrown their hat in the ring on the Gun People Control issue.

The summary of their stance is factual and logical — their conclusion:

“…we urge our state elected officials not to make decisions during this grieving period because it would likely lead to policies that are unenforceable and possibly unconstitutional, while punishing law abiding citizens and doing nothing to reduce violent crime.”

Based on the verbiage of my Sheriff’s statement on the issue, I’m not certain exactly what his position is.
