Re: “Criminals, not guns, commit crimes

"The purpose of the U.S. Constitution is to limit the power of government and to protect the individual rights of all Americans. " That, or to facilitate the transfer of wealth from the working class and the poor to those at the top, along with codifing genocide and slavery, which the US was founded upon, much of which persists to this day...

" The purpose of the Second Amendment is not to deter crime but to deter an oppressive government. " That, or to suppress slave revolts and to keep slaves in their place...

"The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states: "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." " Well, you left out: "A well regulated militia..."

The Second Amendment, that thing, I don't think it means what you think it means. This read may help.
"The Second Amendment: A Biography "by Michael Waldman

Whatever one's feelings and or interpretation of the 2nd Amendment may be, one thing is for sure and for certain, there are far too many guns in this nation and they are far to easy to be obtained by those who have no business whatsoever in using them...

Personally, I am looking forward to when those who love and worship at the altar of all things firearms will love their children and their fellow citizens with the same zeal and passion they exhibit for their guns...

Re: “Stop sanctuary status in SLO County

I would submit that immigrants and refugees are not the problem, they are the result of the problem. If the US does not want immigrants and refugees to cross its borders, it should probably cease its policies and actions which create the need for people to come here in the first place. Insane trade policies, installation and support of brutal right wing regimes, assassinations, death squads, torture, gross pollution from US corporations, mass slaughter, etc. etc. etc. When you burn down a persons home and make it impossible for them to support their families, you probably shouldn't be too surprised to find them sleeping under your eaves when it is raining.... My sense is that the US could benefit from many more sanctuary cities, not less...

Re: “Gun scares, student threats, and fights roil Paso Robles school community

No Human Being Is Illegal... If people in the US do not want people from other nations coming in, then it would probably be a good idea to tell their politicians and CEO's to stop enacting insane trade policies, ordering assassinations, death squads, torture, installation and support of brutal right wing regimes, mass slaughter, etc. etc, which make it impossible for people in other nations to support their families... If the US does not want immigrants and refugees to come on over, it should probably stop creating them in the first place. When you burn down a persons home and otherwise make it impossible for them to support their families, probably shouldn't be too surprised to find them sleeping under your eaves when it is raining...

Immigrants, refugees, and undocumented workers are not the problem...

Re: “Gun scares, student threats, and fights roil Paso Robles school community

On one of the local AM radio stations, one of the parents attempted to explain that the sign (Black Rifles Matter) was not meant to be inflammatory and or racist... That about sums it up... no surprise that their children would follow suit...

In other news, it was wonderful to stand with the students and other residents in front of the school on the 14th in support of the walkout...

Re: “Helter shelter

Well done. One of the more well written distillations of SLO County in action that I have read in some time...

Flags are bits of colored cloth that governments use first to shrink-wrap peoples minds & then as ceremonial shrouds to bury the dead. Arundhati Roy

Re: “Why won't Carbajal take a stand against sanctuary cities?

In a more sane and just world, all cities, counties and states would be sanctuary places. Undocumented workers are not the problem. If the US does not want undocumented people from crossing it's borders, it should probably put an end to it's numerous insane trade policies and actions which make it impossible for a person in Latin America and elsewhere impossible to support their families. Assassinations, torture, death squads, mass slaughter, support of brutal right wing regimes, massive pollution, and numerous crimes of US and corporate malfeasance make coming into the US seem like the only alternative. When you burn down a person's home, you probably shouldn't be too surprised to find them sleeping under your porch when it is raining... That, and no person is illegal....
