Paco-1234, You claim Enlisted and Officer, I appreciate that, but your posts seem to contradict both the Oath of Enlistment and the Officers Oath. Have you changed your mind since retirement or did you just recite it as a means to further your career?
All officers of the seven Uniformed services of the United States swear or affirm an oath of office upon commissioning. It differs slightly from that of the oath of enlistment that enlisted members recite when they enter the service. It is required by statute, the oath being prescribed by Section 3331, Title 5, United States Code. It is traditional for officers to recite the oath upon promotion but as long as the officer's service is continuous this is not actually required. One notable difference between the officer and enlisted oaths is that the oath taken by officers does not include any provision to obey orders; while enlisted personnel are bound by the Uniform Code of Military Justice to obey lawful orders, officers in the service of the United States are bound by this oath to disobey any order that violates the Constitution of the United States. Upon enlistment the enlistee swears to uphold the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Police Officers also defend the Constitution.
Paco-1234, I suggest you go to the Oath Keepers website and read their 10 Oaths before you even think about what you know about Law enforcement or the military's mindset on disarming the population on any scale. Neither one gives a damn about magazine size or deer rifles.
Rifles don't hold shells. Assault weapons are strictly regulated to include spot checks from BATFE and a $200.00 tax for each weapon.
paco-1234 Get help you are obviously overdosing on Kool-Aid.
Loplover-The Tea Party has nothing to do with religion. Instead of ranting for the MSM, gain a little knowledge. Adherence to the Constitution pretty much slaps down your religious rant.
Hospitals attempt to avoid the mentally ill as much as possible because they have problems paying their bills. SMMC's Locked unit was closed years ago because it was a major drain on hospital resources. Jails have replaced medical environments.
How about holding the Mental Health Professionals responsible when their client is delusional and the MHP completely fails to act.
I voted for Turner. So far I haven't had one reason to feel bad for that vote! The former undersheriff is doing her time and absolutely no one has attempted to question the Chief of Police in College Place as to why he didn't notice that they were living way outside of their means.
African-American? Right out of the gate? Really....?
shiftboss1-Well done, I hope he received the care he needed and all ended well for him as well. (I say that because, I don't think you were eager to use deadly force on someone in a deminished capacity and he was returned to Canada, where maybe he received proper tratment). You obviously don't live in some fantasy land where you can make up rights such as the right to "domestic tranquility". Skew history by ignoring the CivilWar involved firearms in freedom of slavery and that the Temperence movement was a total failure that only seemed to gain power to the modern gangster. By the way domestic tranquility is a goal not a right. I know that for a fact because I've been married over thirty years:)
This letter is just confusing. I would like to know how the NRA would profit from armed security in a school. They offered a suggestion. Your letter insinuates that only women nurture, care for and worry about their children and other peoples children.
