    Thumbs up Local Editors "Get It"

    Colorado Springs Gazette, Our View (Editorial), 23 December 2008

    We've had a rough few months, but it could have been worse... and Colorado Springs ain't bad. Maybe it's the military influence, but more guns in the hand of the good guys and gals seems to be working.

    I found the final paragraph quite remarkable:

    “Among its peers, Colorado Springs has a small police force. Yet the city’s violent crime rate falls below the national average for cities its size. We suspect that’s due, at least in part, to a tradition among law-abiding adults learning the safe and proper use of defensive weapons and taking personal responsibility for their own safety, and the protection of weaker and meeker citizens whom they love. Colorado Springs should be proud.”

    Great article - the CO Spgs TV stations, IMHO, however, are somewhat less liberal with their praise. The article makes solid points tho, and should be more widely distributed! I like that "western" attitude!

    Good one is it just me or does it seem like some of the media at least print media is coming around to our side of the fence
    Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family

    Good statistics on our side are hard to ignore
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
