Gun grabbers across the nation were elated at their ability to pull the wool over voters eyes in passing their ill-advised anti-gun measure, I-594 in Washington State by a fairly large margin in 2014.
Promoted as merely a simple background check requirement on private sales and well funded by out of state anti-gun interests, 18 pages of the most confusing words that even law enforcement opposed and has seen both the State Attorney General and the Dept. of Licensing shy away from offering guidance on quickly transformed into “just the first step” in what gun-grabbers erroneously label “common sense solutions” to gun violence.
“The first problem is to slow down the number of handguns being produced and sold in this country. The second problem is to get handguns registered. The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition–except for the military, police, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors–totally illegal.” (Richard Harris, “A Reporter at Large: Handguns,” New Yorker, July 26, 1976, p. 58.)

In my estimation and still early, a man well worth consideration as a Presidential candidate in 2016

I’ve been hearing rumors that the Clark County R3publican Party is strongly considering censuring Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler and it has been confirmed. I find it oddly fascinating that one County Party out of the eight comprising the 3rd Congressional District that elected her believes they alone have the power to coerce her into doing their bidding.
Be that as it may, I am not a big fan of Herrera Beutler’s politically, but do acknowledge she was elected by over 60% of the vote in the 3rd District and can’t help but notice none of the elected GOP officials have chimed in publicly, one way or the other. And, as for both parties involved here, I warned y’all long ago.
Nothing has been voted on or approved yet, I hear that won’t happen until 3 months or so from now since the censure was not brought forward in sufficient time for voting at the last central committee meeting.

It appears that it has become more popular than ever to smear and oppose the Police Officers in our country for doing the very job we hired them to do. In this bloggers opinion, that is not just folly but completely wrong.
Don’t get me wrong, there are bad officers that let the job go to their heads and some that should not be on the force, but I also feel that although they are a small minority, they receive the bulk of media attention.
Then too, of late it seems the media has gone out of their way to smear good Cops for acting properly, such as we saw in Ferguson, Missouri in recent months. It is the media that has joined in the fervor of anti-Police smears, often running erroneous claims and feeding those that claim to be “protesters.”
Most disturbing to me is seeing an increasing anti-Police rhetoric on Republican websites, or by those claiming to be Conservative that has wormed their way into the Republican Party.
