Several Dead In Southern California Shooting Spree

Interesting that someone would choose an AR as the top tool for in-house security. I would think either handgun (easier storage and quick access) or a shotgun (makes up for sloppy aiming).

More interesting that people claim the NRA is a freedom fighting organization.

"Bigdp, if your primary concern is really training then please explain why you think personnel who were trained to use those weapons by the armed forces or police would not be allowed to posses them privately under many of the proposals being submitted. I have that qualification, heck, I'm still on active duty and CA has made it very difficult for me to get my AR-15. Why should that be? Do you believe the training is somehow lost at separation?"

I think I would have heard that complaint from my highly trained and educated friend in the reserves by now. That would be backwards...

Not to mention there's a huge segment of the population that defines freedom and liberty as owning a business, driving a fancy car, raising children, attending PTA meetings, crying about big government, letting your dog do his thing on your neighbor's lawn, etc. The list of freedoms is endless and most of them have little to do with the 2nd amendment. Certainly there's been times in our history when there were stronger connections to gun ownership. But the days of the wild wild west are long gone. So stop pretending that more guns in high crime areas will be a panacea. Or that guns are wanted or needed in uneventful suburbia.

The fact is that guns make some people feel safe while they make others uncomfortable. That's a fact you can put in your pipe. But when you blatantly ignore it, you're no longer relevant in the conversation.

Might as well have some fun with the wingnuts whose irrational arguments are past the point of no return.

Your idea of security is living in a police state. Fine. Go live in Texas with your so-called liberty and get a job at Walmart while the rest of us participate in a civil, educated society...

Urban dwellers know all to well what would happen if the rural 2nd Amendment blowhards got their way and fully armed all citizens. While back country wingnuts would increasingly shoot each other in the foot, seriously violent urban crimes would skyrocket. It's a total lack of understanding of each other's worlds that's at the heart of this. Few understand what is an appropriate compromise, what should be tolerated in each environment and which solutions go in search of problems.

Sadly, many, like the NRA, paint it in black and white terms to scare buyers right into the next gun shop, whereby your deficient manhood gets fluffed and the NRA succeeds in pushing more sales.

The idea that the common man should have the right to be as heavily armed as a policeman or military soldier is one of idiotic proportions. Only those with appropriate training and permits should have such rights. Everyone is entitled to protect themselves - that's not going away - I don't care how many Alex Jones rants you listen to. Arming yourself for the next apocalypse should be a privilege afforded, not to anyone with a fat, insecure wallet, but to those who can do it responsibly.

San Diego Unified Gets High Marks For School Choice

Parents can apply to up to three schools, not five. It's an update for this year's application period.

Do your child a favor, challenge them - give them a shot in an increasingly competitive environment - consider International Baccalaureate schools in SD:

Application period ends February 15.

New Law Requires Whooping Cough Vaccine

Your idiotic, stubborn beliefs are the reason so many proven preventable diseases still exist and infect vulnerable children. Home schooling your children and having to keep them separate from society will ultimately please your own twisted ego while damaging your children's chances of living healthy, socially productive lives.

Keep an open mind and you'll realize teabagging is not strictly reserved for "gays".

I applaud the various groups acting as gov't. watchdogs. Even better when they appear relatively organized. But this movement has become a conservative bandwagon for those opposing healthcare reform, nothing more and nothing less.

The opportunity to change healthcare was seized by the current administration. Let's give them a chance to succeed, rather than dooming them to failure.
