I wonder if the reaction of the City officials would be the same if this was a request from the Islamic faith concerning one of their religious traditions? I suspect that they would do what they are asked to do because they would be afraid of what may happen...
Don... we've decided it is a good thing. Frist it was stated about 240 years ago... it has continued to be so throughout the years... and this increase in sales is just validation of that 240 year old statement. It is you and a few others who are on the other side of this... and think that the decision needs to be changed. So stop putting a strawman argument out there that "WE as a nation should decide if it is a good thing or not." That is not an open debate, the decision has been made, and confirmed by We the People constantly since it was first made. So stop the silliness... on and it is clear from your statement that before Ben educated you, that you had NO idea what the difference was between semi-automatic and automatic weapons. AND that one is legal for citizens to own while the other isn't.
Every time I hear some nut job pushing their own morality choices onto anyone else... I wonder what his mother's thoughts are on abortion. And what would he think if she had decided to have one instead of give him life.... oh, right he wouldn't be here. So who is he to say that about anyone else's right to life?

So ISIL doesn't belong in the 21st century... I say with obama's constant deference to the international community he belongs in 1984. As he is acting like the International community is our Big Brother, who has to OK anything we may want to do in our own interests to protect ourselves.
The media is trying to tell us that we are war weary... the military is a bit stretched at present, but if they are allowed to operate their campaigns with out the political handcuffs constantly put on them, this would be a very fast sweep across the desert. And then it would take time to round up the rats as they run and hide among the populations of the region.
Great response!
He spoke about being cowards... what does he think about his guys hiding amongst the population as soon as US air strikes (with pilots in the planes) started to take out their locations? War crimes vs doing recon with unmanned drones. Wonder if that is a moral equivalency in their world?

Quote from article: "The shooting death of a young black man like Michael Brown is an American tragedy. Unfortunately, it happens all too often." Agree that the death is a tragedy... The second sentence is a bit misleading... on average their are not that many shootings by police officers. Understand what you are saying because one would fit the words of this sentence. It needs to be clarified a bit more as leaving as you did it sounds like it happens regularly... which it does not.

Actually the officer did not respond to a report... the initial contact was when the officer saw the two boys walking in the middle of a street and asked them to move over to the sidewalk. At that time the officer had no knowledge of the robbery they had just committed... But the two boys did. It is not clear if he ever knew about it... but when the initial contact was made he did not.
Now that they have an investigation in place, they won't be able to answer questions about this.
