Re: Gun Ban

Bobcat,
The part I am talking about is in both emails of Haab and CNN.
So, I don't believe that line was false.
The father did not have to change anything and could have run with what I pointed out.

Re: Gun Ban

Bobcat, So I was doing my best to read e-mails that was posted between CNN and the Haabs The one glaring thing that stood out to me ( unless this is doctored ) was when producer was talking about his questions being to long and needed to get as many people on in a time frame. If CNN wanted people to...

Re: Gun Ban

Oh yes,
I am hearing the officer that did not go in to eliminate the shooter is a 30 yr. veteran of police force. If true, how much time did he have before handing in his retirement papers?
Was that a factor for him not responding?

If that story about CNN is true specialties which it appears it is then I want to know when advertisers start pulling their ads off that channel and internet news. When does the boycott start? You can also add CNN to the blame list as well.

Re: Gun Ban

JimD,
A 2010 article. A lot has changed since then. Try doing your homework. School dept. gets roughly 64% of towns hundred million budget and it's to expensive to put seatbelts on new buses being purchased. At least start with those buses that go on highway.
Maybe, bobcat was right about you.

Gotta love John Cusick.
It takes balls to take a stand on behalf of the ratepayers and cram the b.s. back down the insiders throat.
I also have to give kudos to Dan Bowen at the C.R.C. forum at St. Ann's ( 10/26/17) for a great statement. You can catch it on mctv vimeo around the 1:30:00 mark.

It's not what they wrote, it's what was written that I believe the USSC are making decisions in what I believe is the role of congress.

Think about a past post of yours in regards to how many times congress amended the constitution.
With the USSC making decisions for congress its probably why it has only been amended so few times.
