Re: “A Post In Which I Say Something Good About Diane Douglas

Is there any idea what percentage of state money comes to Tucson and then TUSD?

@Constitution Defender, yes when I first realized and confirmed that my safety was compromised I spent my rent money on a .38special bc all I had was an unreliable little pea shooter.

D~M will not really change when the A~10 retires because there is more to the base than A~10s. Snce the A~10 only performs roughly 20% of the Close air support it's time may have passed. Shame on Ron Barber for using OUR tax dollars to extend this airplane simply because WE are too selfish to accept the need to spend our defense dollars wisely.

Re: “Update: McSally Wins Recount, Barber gives statement

Not only do we have representation in Washington, we have positive representation. Given that the HOR will have the highest number of seats held by the GOP since 1928 (86 years), AND the GOP will have control of the Senate next month, the message is pretty clear. The Obama agenda, peddled by Harry Reid (removed as majority leader by the voters), Nancy Pelosi (also removed) and Ron Barber (fired!), is not what the American voters want! As soon as southern Arizonans wise up, and fire Raul Grijalva ( boycott Arizona??) and Ann Kirkpatrick, we'll really be moving in a positive direction!

We have the Ash Fork School district, in the middle of no-where with little tax support, and no charter school in sight, being an incredibly successful district, with low income, high performing students. Great staff and superintendent and supportive, goal setting ELECTED school board. District of the year in Arizona. Charter boards, self-perpetuating, and answerable only to their corporate masters.

Re: “A Post In Which I Say Something Good About Diane Douglas

Conservatives love to throw unsupported statements about public education. They use terms like "failure", "fraud", "top heavy administrators," (which include bus drivers and cafeteria workers), and "waste", unsupported by data at all. We don't need more school "reform", we need public school support. You can bet anytime the term "reform" is used by Arne Duncan, Goldwater, ALEC, or their puppet, Kelli Ward, it means traditional public schools are getting screwed. You want "waste", try for profit on-line schools. Huge waste of public money. We need to support the 80% of this State's population who have made their "choice", their local public schools. I live near Cragin School, a wonderful school with a committed staff, and they need more support.

@skhart, since there are no replies in this forum...do you carry, if not you should if you have had a stalker for the last 3 years. Cain used a rock to kill his brother, there are many weapons that a person can choose to do crime with, however a gun is a longer range weapon (depending upon the barrel length of what you buy) that you can distance yourself from an attacker and defend yourself without allowing them to harm you.

Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

Having had a stalker now for three years, and knowing the anti-stalker laws, I'm thrilled to see this issue being talked about. However, do you know how difficult it is to convict stalkers in the first place? I would love to have a hearty discussion with McSally about the kind of laws that need to be put in place before this legislation is even talked about. And a gun is only one weapon, we need to work on the other more damaging weapon s stalkers use. guns aren't the problem, the people who use them for crime and violence are.

Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

I'm not sure where to begin. Guns are not the problem, Sane, law abiding citizens should own and carry guns to protect themselves, and for whatever sporting things they like to do. The more people that carry, the more worried the criminals are that the person they are going to rob, may be carrying, and can diffuse the robbery. The gov't has put in place HIPPA laws to protect medical people from disseminating things to anyone about a person's health or mental status. The mental status is what should be revealed, but it can't be, and therein lies the issue. Background checks are worthless at this point, except for those with public criminal records. I have a conceal carry permit, to which I can not carry at my place of work, so I don't, but I do have 2 in my vehicle for whenever something may come to happen. I travel all over the country and the world for work and it disturbs me that I can not take a weapon with me to protect myself, as I have no idea what kind of area that I am going into..I can understand the foreign countries, but it sucks in the USA considering that I have passed all the background checks for purchasing and I have TSA pre-check that I can not take a firearm to another state without a whole lot of hassle having to put it in a checked bag, that someone (baggage handler) could steal (remember the electronics that were stolen from checked bags in MSP) that they finally busted them for after months of going through baggage and stealing things that were of value. My checked bags are always locked with a TSA lock, but I have no faith that the baggage handlers don''t have a key. WIth regard to that, why are not all conceal carry permits recognized by EVERY state, no matter where they are issued. This creates problems in driving from state to state and carrying a loaded firearm for protection

Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

An elderly man I knew heard a noise late at night and armed himself with his Korean War commemorative Model 1911, .45 automatic. When the home invasion criminal opened the bedroom door, the elderly man pointed the weapon at the intruder and issued a warning. The intruder ran like a rabbit. The elderly man did not report his defensive gun usage because the police in his city do not support private weapons, although they are still legal. Fortunately, the elderly man did not fall for the propaganda of the gun-banners.

I'm not afraid of guns. I'm afraid of the people who "need" guns. Likewise, I do not fear people who vote for Republicans. I fear the Republicans.

Guns made Ms. Giffords what she is today. Without guns she would be an unknown.

If stalking is a felony then no additional legislation is required, felons can't possess firearms. If it isn't a felony, make it one.

Re: “Update: McSally Wins Recount, Barber gives statement

90,000 votes each. next election we may have 50,000 illegals voting.

I wonder how many illegals are conservative. It can't be all of them.
