You have rather conveniently ignored the fact that the solutions that I pointed out are being successful at that...the only thing you have offered in your last 20 posts is "spend more tax payer money and build more prisons"....while at the same time talking out the other side of your mouth and crying about government overspending. You can't even win a debate with yourself. Good luck.
    LOL.

    I haven't punted DD. I've grown bored of you. Unlike you, I don't get personal validation by thinking I've won a debate on a website where everyone is anonymous.

    You're into legalizing drugs, and you've derailed the point to make your desire known.

    I don't think your argument will bring much comfort to those who mourn the death of their loved ones who were killed at the hands of the violent criminals freed through early release programs pushed by ProgLibs in Sacremento.

    Don't you know that your mother doesn't need a semi-automatic assault pistol!!!! Use a shotgun....give two blasts in the air like Biden says. Come to you senses man!

    Ma couldn't have held a full-size shotgun steady at that point in her life, too heavy... so Uncle Joe can kiss my ass....

    What's with all the comments about being surprised that someone in California has a gun in their house?? WTF? I've lived in California nearly all my life, and there has always been a gun in my home, even when I was a child. I'm annoyed that a radically liberal California legislature has been whacking away at our ability to buy and own certain semi-automatic weaponry, and is trying to limit ammunition sales, etc. But yes, Californians can legally purchase and own guns.

    Bravo for the brave woman who protected her wheelchair-bound husband. You go, girl!!

    That's why I live in the last bastion of conservatives in California, Orange County where your allowed to exercise your Constitutional rights and are allowed to protective yourself, family and property and aren't forced to depend on government and a cell phone.
    I lived in L.A. County for decades... I also lived in Orange County for decades... and this post is blatantly untrue. State legislators make gun laws, not county councils. The gun laws are the same in L.A. County as they are in Orange County. If someone is breaking into one's home in California... anywhere in California... the homeowner has the right to presume imminent danger and lethal force is allowed.

    Yeah. Old Two-Shoot Joe's a real egg spurt. It's a real shame she didn't hit the SOB.

    Too bad she missed.

    Exactly. The guy who did it has a long rap sheet. Home invasion is a death warrant in my opinion. The piece of **** will serve time, become a harder criminal, get released and commit more crime. Nice system we have here in the U.S.
