The gun grabber's goal is obviously the total & complete disarmament of us.

This is why we must give them NOTHING.

You cannot reason with someone dedicated to removing your right to defend your life, they are wicked & extremely dangerous.

Buy more ammo as soon as it's available.


She should watch her "assault mouth". It shows her intelligence or lack thereof…

completely ingnorant a traitor to the constition of we the people.


While you are indeed entitled to your own opinion, you are not entitled to your own FACTS. And this is the problem with the lamestream media today. They say something that is patently and provably false, and then go right on continuing saying it, and when they are called out on it, they say that it is their 'opinion'. No, it's NOT! It's called lying. Either knowingly or unknowingly, it's still LYING. And that's one thing my father taught me never to abide by. It's one thing to screw up, it's another to continue falsehoods and half-truths to cover up… Read more »

They'll get my assault clippers when they pry them from my cold, well trimmed nails.

Yep the link is broken.


A car is an assault weapon, a knife, a baseball bat, a football helmet, and Yes, even Nancy Cordes' Mouth is an Assault weapon. Most anything in your home is an assault weapon. So What?

I do watch CBS 2 for the local news, but any other news I watch Fox.

CBS is assaulting my Constitutional rights.


And that's the method. Blur the lines, start small, disarm everyone. Decades ago the left attacked "Saturday Night Specials." You know, affordable self-defense weapons? They were all over "plastic guns" and "armor piercing" bullets in the 1980s, remember? Two more myths disproved by everyone. Then there was the 50-caliber shooting down airplanes myth which has morphed into "deadly military sniper rifles" verbiage. This has taken a back burner to the "assault weapons" and "high capacity" and "nobody needs" chants we are hearing today. Emotion-laden, poll and test group approved wording that gets the group-think nature of humans going "yeah, that's… Read more »

As the saying states…..Mine must all be defective ! Wow, an "assault pistol" now !

Where did these leftist go to college, huh? There is the problem. Educated by leftists, to be leftists. "Carry on way-ward Son", even if the truth is not done.

Statements such as Nancy Cordes and other anti-gunners in her position are making are also known by a very familiar legal expression-" inciting to riot ". Why are these people not charged?

The link is broken.

Encouraging a lawfull insurection , or a revolution is sure a poor way of "trying to reduce gun violence"! Well when its all over I say we need "truth commissions" to hold media to task. Note I did not say truth and reconciliation? With those who advocate, lie,and conspire against the citizens of the United States and their rights there will be no reconciliation. Only accountability! While under the first amendment one is entitled to unpopular opinion, this is no case of opinion by mere individuals. It is a conspiracy to deprive law abiding Americans of their rights and needs… Read more »


Just when you figure that the lame stream media has sunk about as low and staffed by willfully ignorant people with very low intelligence, along comes another one that takes it to a whole new level.
