The only reason the NRA wants armed guards in schools is that it will mean governments will have to buy tens of thousands of guns for them. The NRA is disgusting.
I would say Randy Moss is like Billy Ray Cyrus, good till he retires then never thought of again. I would say Jerry Rice is like Elvis, great while on top and still great years later. And you all know Billy Ray can't even closely compare to Elvis.
Power is what it's all about. The Manchins want it all and will stop at nothing to get what they want. Joe wants to be president and is doing his best to make himself known to the nation so he'll have a recognizable name nationwide. His stance on gun control was nothing but more hot air out of him. Being the first senator to speak out about gun control got him on a lot of TV shows. Now he's diluting what he said. His wife is running the state BOE, not Phares or Linger.
Can someone please explain to me why gas went up 20 cents on the gallon from $3.45 a gallon to $3.65 a gallon on Jan. 30 with there being no hurricanes, no pipeline disasters no shortages or no other reason except pure greed? While once again our elected officials sat back and raked in their kickbacks and did nothing to help the people.
After reading that many county sheriffs would not enforce any ban on guns, want to ask whether the ineffectiveness of our present laws on background checks is because these same sheriffs have not been providing information on arrests and convictions to the background checkers. If background checks were 100% enforced and complete, those who failed the test would not be able to get a gun without breaking a law. Now all they need do is go to a gun show.
Having read the Boone County Sheriff's letter to President Obama, I contend it makes no sense. He says he will not support any "alterations" to the Constitution or the amendments. The only way you can alter the Constitution is by an amendment. So what is he saying?
Bureaucracy in action: Why do our poor, overworked, underpaid school personnel take more than two weeks to provide a proof of enrollment?
Any sheriff that refuses to enforce the law should be removed from office for dereliction of duty. No sheriff has the legal authority, power or the constitutional right to judge a law unconstitutional. That is the role of the courts.
