Balancing The Constitution’s Stance On Guns

May 5, 2013

Our county legislature has had two votes about gun violence, one vote each in its last two sessions. The vote in May was about newspapers printing the names of people who had gun permits....

Duckster, Mel doesn't reach out he marginalizes people and separates them. He teaches that gays don't deserve equal rights, all religions are inferior to christianity and all christian sects are subordinate to his, Mormons belong to a cult, the poor aren't really trying. You know, the religion of the right-wing.

And Mel, you should be ashamed. A man of the cloth spewing forth the nonsense you come up with. Is that how you reach out?

the paranoia of the right is simply amazing. we have a knucklehead here that admits he sleeps with his gun 12" away. I have looked at the crime statistics for the Jamestown area. Not a whole lot going on really and yet he "carries 24 hours a day" to feel safe from the dirt bags? Really? I think there is medication available for extreme paranoia but no cure for being a knucklehead LOL

Mel, I see nothing in this letter from Hoyer that references God or the Bible. What is your point?

The constitution doesn't have to spell out self defense or defense of one's home, family, or property. It is a natural law.

Momkey, there is no negative comment from you concerning what Rev. Tim Hoyer, Democrat on the County legislature has said politically and keeps on saying politically to advance his poltical agenda as he is a cleric. What gives? Why not vent the criticism at him like you do me? I have a strong inkling that it is really not about separation of church and state as it separation of certain views that don't agree with yours from political policy.

Monkey- I assume you are saying one doesn't need to carry a gun because he will not need to stop a mass shooting. If there isn't going to be anymore mass shootings than why the new gun laws? Sorry to keep asking you hard questions that you'll never answer.

Somebody has been watching too many shoot-em-up westerns and wants to be a cowboy in the Wild West. You are too late and you're on the wrong coast.

Monkey-If you are sitting at McD's and some maniac comes in and starts shooting, do you hope the law-abiding citizen sitting next to you took his gun outside the home?

I carry 24/7, except when asleep. Then I have it 12 inches away. No paranoia here. It's simply that if my life is ever in jeopardy by some dirtbag, then I get to live and they don't. What's your choice?

What a crippling amount of paranoia it requires to think you need to take a gun with you wherever you go.

Could it be that the left hates guns because you have to buy them? If Coumo and Obama came up with a plan where everybody in the country was given a free gun I bet the left would love them.

BTW, there is a female living in D.C., who was attacked. She fought very hard and now can carry outside of her residence. It's very difficult to get a permit for ANY gun in D.C., even one you would just keep in your home.

Thanks, carlaw, for the vote of confidence(pun intended), but I don't think the electorate has much of an appetite for candidates that think like you, me and many of the others here. They seem to prefer sleezy individuals, who have an agenda, think they know better than the rest of us, so they must push than agenda down our throats and ones that are "Santa Claus" and will give them things. Sad, but true.

Gee, Monkeyboy, no one is ever attacked when they are away from home! There are no muggers, rapists, murderers or carjackers out there that would attack innocent, unsuspecting people. (sarcasm, for those that don't get it).

It would be nice if Coumo and Obama would do for the rest of the economy what they've done for gun retailers and manufacturers.

Monkey- You take the gun outside your home because you may need it to defend yourself or somebody else out in public. Do I really need to explain that to you?

MacKenzie, if the purpose of keeping guns is self-defense why would you need to take one out of your home? How would you be defending your home if you were not at home?

What Hoyer & co. refuse to understand is you don't actually have to use a gun for it to be effective. How many homes are not broken into because of fear that the homeowner has a gun in the house. What's the stat on that?

This Hoyer guy is twisted. I don't believe his statistic's. Every American need's to motive their government Representatives to protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights at all costs. Those value's alone are what have made this the greatest nation on earth.

Very simple Tim, let's just assume that EVERY household has guns. It is not up to the government to provide this information. In the words of your fearless king, "if we can save just one life", then (my words) owning a gun for defense is worth it.
