    Yeah, no criminal tag or punch card required..he says it's unlimited. :-)

    I think it's great to get the idea across but on the TV clip I saw I think the Senator could have worded it a little better. I'm sure they cut and paste what they want for the story so it may have been out of context.

    Looks like some of the comments are from the anti's...but then again KOMO is a Seattle station, so would you expect any less?

    Looks like it time to drive 30min south, go bag some criminals! Hunting party anyone?

    No, thanks. I heard they taste like carp.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Carp.

    But, we've got that member in Maryland who is a taxidermist. Maybe she can tell us what a pelt would be worth.

    "Sheldon was quoted in a local newspaper as calling people on Seattleā€™s Queen Anne and Capitol Hill 'wimps.' He has since backed off that statement. "

    How about "pacifist pansies"???

    Unfortunately, the anti's are confusing "self defense" and "vigilante" which is why I thought he could have made his point better.Self defense should have been the common theme and pounded into each sentance with the point that he isn't promoting vigilantism. Of course, to get the sensationalism thereporters inflame thewrong message.

    First, let me apologize - I USED TO BE AN ANTI !!!!! I'm soooooooo sorry. Research and search for truth led me to carrying with peace of mind and pride. As a former anti I know they stop listening before you start speaking, if they do try to listen emotion overrides logic - yeah, I'm an engineer and gave in to emotion!!! Thanks for providing accurate information. Let's win over some more emotionally charged illiterates. And, I'm very LIBERAL (usually...)

    Kudos to Tim Sheldon, I think it should be pointed out that most of the articles cut out part of his statement that says "It's open season on criminals who attempt a home invasion". Most articles just say Tim Sheldon says "It's open season on criminals".

    Has anyone considered writing to the networks that are cutting this story up the way they want to run it? Truthfully, the only way to get honest reporting is to demand it. I'm tired of watching the news and knowing that I'm not getting the whole story--and that goes for the vast majority of the news outlets.

    Here's how I see it. If a small group of Christians was able to overrun the FCC so badly that Howard Stern had to leave, then we should be able to do the same to our local news outlets, at the very least.

    Anyone up for sending some emails? I'd even write them, using the kinds of research that you guys find on here.

    Anytime a politician advocates people taking responsibility for themselves they are reprimanded. I'm sure you all remember when you would go to a restaurant and ask for the non-smoking section people didn't like having the choice so they made the government ban smoking in private businesses; Its the same thing here.

    This ties in nicely with the rally we had in Seatac a couple of weeks ago covered by KING and KIRO.
