There really should be a rule that if you are going to disseminate information be it a quote, a picture or a fact it should be accompanied by sufficient citation allowing the average reader to verify its veracity.
If this was the case not one newspaper, including this one, could print anything. And the democrat party would be shut down.
This guy is a clown and his “reasoning” in this piece screams liberal agent provocateur.
I just love how liberals just pull this crap out of their @ss and print it as fact. They seem comfortable that no one will challenge them for any sort of evidence for the claims.
What is distressing is that this is from a Grand Junction paper? That is some fine Colorado country. I lived in CO for six years growing up. What the hell has happened to that fine state?
History teaches that the road to gun confiscation is also the road to extermination of a whole people.
This Hoffman is a seig-heiling stooge of the MarxoFascists and needs to be treated as such.
The time for talk is over.
You cannot reason with the unreasonable - so let’s get this inevitable fight and war going and get this over with. We’re waiting for you clowns to make that last mistake.
The author needs to get his med balance checked.
He admits there may be to many criminals but thinks the way to address the issue is to take away the rights and defenses of law abiding citizens.
This guy must be a riot to watch in the kitchen, when a knife is needed.
Does he pick up a butter knife to cut the roast?
Ahh.. he probably orders out so he doesn’t have to get his head in a fuss over thinking about where food comes from and how it is dispatched and prepared.
Perhaps he is a vegan..
Wait! they still use sharp and pointy implements to process that too!
Does this guy quake when he shaves? Those razors are pretty sharp and its right there beside your jugular!
I suppose he doesn’t have that problem, upon further refection, I have realized this fellow doesn’t have a hair!
My goodness Jim, Life is terminal, but stupidity robs you of the brilliant bits along the way.
Why not? No system is perfect but ours works pretty well (in spite of the demonetization that the left attempts). Punishing law-abiding people because of the actions of law-breaking people is unacceptable and I reject it.
So what? That "overwhelming support" may very well be the fictitious creation of statist pollsters and media.
Even if were a true measure of public sentiment, so what? It would be shallow, uninformed sentiment ginned up by the lies of the statist media, and therefore an unsuitable basis for policy.
Even if it is a true measure of public sentiment AND were based on reasons those holding those opinions have considered carefully and could articulate, as opposed to being based on the lies of the statist media, so what?
Are we now in the business of abrogating civil rights based on a plurality of public opinion? Would it be OK to bring back slavery if a majority of the public wanted it? No, there's a Constitutional amendment prohibiting it. Would it be OK to bring back segregation if a majority of the public wanted it? No, SCOTUS has said it violates the Constitution.
Why are liberals so stupid, and why do the factors they'd never accept as justifying policies they disagree with ample support for ones they like?
All of them are now centered on those three, so the word is out to them to stick with these three and get them through the Senate and the House.
The “media” needs a good whippin’.
They misquote, they mis-spell, they make-up stuff- they LIE.
It’s about time THEY are dragged into the light and ridiculed.
The Tea Party protested CNN in 2010-in Atlanta-(of course, it was never COVERED by CNN), but, as small as the protest was (about 200), it was extremely satisfying to be a part of it.
The MEDIA is the enemy, 2nd only to Bath-House Barry Soetoro, Soros and “The Iranian of the Day”-Valerie Jarrett.
“Jim Hoffman is a local Realtor...”
Little known fact; The National Association of Realtors leans HEAVILY liberal.
Good luck with that.
“There really should be a rule that if you are going to disseminate information be it a quote, a picture or a fact it should be accompanied by sufficient citation allowing the average reader to verify its veracity. (...snip...) There is overwhelming support for bans on assault rifles, high-capacity magazines and universal background checks.” (No citation provided)
LOL! Now THAT’S rich.
Isn’t Obama a straw buyer? With his operation of gun running into Mexico? What penalties are recommended for buyers such as Obama?
“who sell literally hundreds of guns per year without any knowledge of the buyer.”
I guess the universe for those stats only included those in the Fast and Furious program orchestrated by this infernal government.
A grand example of the hypocrisy of the left... First we find this in the article: “There really should be a rule that if you are going to disseminate information be it a quote, a picture or a fact it should be accompanied by sufficient citation allowing the average reader to verify its veracity.”
And, then, just a few lines later, we find this: “There is overwhelming support for bans on assault rifles, high-capacity magazines and universal background checks.”
Now, while I can get behind the ban on background checks (stupid writer), I don’t see any citation on the source of this ‘fact’.
The arrogance and hypocrisy of the left know no bounds.
The Second Amendment is clear in its words, and clear in its meaning. There is no room for ‘interpretation’, and there is no reason for America to accept the socialists’ plans, pogroms, or anti-Constitutional legislation.
