  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

With a new President, comes new promises.  Here's an opportunity to post the promise made (http://www.whitehouse.gov/), and hopefully we'll be able to update our post when the promise is kept!

Here's one I hope he keeps (I'll probably find more but, this was the first I checked):
   
Allow All Veterans Back into the VA:
Reverse the 2003 ban on enrolling modest-income veterans, which has denied care to a million veterans.

Still under Veterans issues:

Another promise I hope is kept:
Strengthen VA Care: Make the VA a leader of national health care reform so that veterans get the best care possible. Improve care for polytrauma vision impairment, prosthetics, spinal cord injury, aging, and women's health.
Proud to have served, US Army, WAC

he's already making exceptions to his own rules.

Fish, let's not be so pessimistic!  Here's an opportunity to see what this Administration is saying they plan on accomplishing, picking out those items each of us may have an interest in, and seeing how many come to be!
I will be very happy if all Veterans are allowed back into the VA system, as the system was originally set up for all Veterans!  Of course, with that they need to give the VA more support,  more money, to accommodate the possible influx of Vets.

I agree Kari on THIS promise.  I went through his agenda and there are others I hope he does NOT keep.  Check out his urban site and tell me you want him to repeal the Tihart Amendment and make the so called AWB permanent.  None of those people would know a military rifle if it shot them in the ass.  There are few assault weapons in the civilian sector and they are tightly controlled.  The rest is fear mongering rhetoric set out by the liberals.  The last AWB had no affect on crime as these fireams are not the weapon of choice for most criminals.

I take it they are "checks" of what you want that was promised, since these things have not come to be yet?

agree with fish...  dont need a check, but would most likely donate it to NRA if I got one.  Who ever won this presidency would have been dealt a bad hand of cards.  Im against any more restriction on firearms.  We have plenty of laws that prohibit illegal use as is.  I just hope that the SC has made a solid foundation with the Heller decision.  The president and his comrades have a lot to fix and potentially a lot to screw up.  Handouts aren't the answer.  A nation dependent on it government is a weak nation indeed.  For now I will remain a wolf in sheep's clothing.

I immediately noticed that CNN was egging on the assault weapons issue with coverage of the Miami shootings.  The mayor was saying; "These are weapons of War".  Chief John Timoney agreed and displayed his rising statistics chart since the sunset of the Clinton ban.  Yeah right!

Apparently Miami was unable to find a qualified candidate for Police Chief within their own department so they hired Timoney.  He served four years as the Police Commissioner of the Philadelphia Police Department.  How pathetic!

It's a shame that the laws aren't enforced on the criminals. the libs believe limiting the freedoms of the law abiding is the answer.

I really dont think it (rules/laws/bans) matters much to some politicians either.  They are somehow mysteriously immune to consequences unless it makes the party look bad, then they are canned.  When the peasants are unarmed, it doesnt matter if you make them happy or not.

I just cannot comprehend why larges masses are so blind when we have perfect examples of failure with gun control.  Europe, Australia...the movie Death Wish...
