Why is Hannity’s investment in real estate something to be investigated and reported negatively? Seriously? It’s HIS money, folks. What if, instead, he had invested in Phillip Morris and Budweiser? Would that also be reported negatively? The Left will literally stop at nothing to take him down! He, more than any other media figure, is responsible for promoting Trump to The Deplorables. For that, he must be vilified and destroyed. It worked with O’Reilly and they’re trying to make it would with Laura. Go after a person’s livelihood for their political advocacy? Going after NRA business affiliates, too. Absolutely disgusting.… Read more »

Hannity brought on himself. If he had just disclosed his relationships with stories he was covering this likely wouldn’t be a big deal. As it is, he essentially was deceitful. Now people want to know what else he might have been deceitful about.
If ‘The Right” wants to look into lefty pundits then go ahead. It’s not like they have no experience at trying to destroy their opponents.

I really like Verde Taqueria for tacos. The buffalo chicken is excellent and the Baja fish… mmmmm.

If it had been any source other than the BBC in conjunction with a date other than April 1 I would have considered that Uranus lede suspect. Bravo Teri. Grammar school silly but it brought a smile to another dreary morning.

So I guess there is no way we get the usual maggot put down type of comments here when a Good Guy Without a Gun has the temerity to wrestle the latest AR15 wielder from his weapon. Kudos to Mr. James Shaw Jr. for his cutting short another mass shooting that could have been an even worse tragedy without his brave actions. Incredible also that the loss of 4 lives due to another nut who gave prior warnings that he should never have owned these weapons won’t even make a blip in our record of mass shootings in the future.

Meds, Will…
You’re right. That guy is a hero. Wish he’d have been able to shoot the guy with his own AR. Shaw is a shining example of a regular Great American who took steps to save others. I hope things go well for him in the future! And it’s not the gun’s fault. Take a gander a Britain ‘s knife problem!

We can agree that it is not the gun’s fault. It is the fault of a system that allows a guy who at one point thought Taylor Swift was stalking him, to not only purchase a Bushmaster, Kimber, etc. but to even have them returned to him via his father after a Secret Service confiscation.

If true, it’s not OK, primarily bc of the excessive exercise of power. It just happens to be focused on the gun issue there at Parkland. And I’m going to forgive them if they’re a bit paranoid right now. But hopefully, they get it right quickly. Events at Parkland hold symbolic weight.

Symbolism? It’s ham handed and thugish! And you know it. “That 2nd Amendment kid!”???? Really?? Sounds like the school security guys get off on abusing their students. Lawsuit will be filed against these Jack Booted Thugs!

Symbolic – not as in that it is “only” symbolic, but in that it carries extra weight as an example. Btw, if you dislike these aggressive interrogations without probable cause (and it appears neither of us do), I will assume you also admonish those tactics when they arise under the context of other Amendments in the Bill of Rights.

Yeah, so let’s say your best friend gets killed by someone with a knife, then a few days later you post videos of yourself practicing knife tactics. That’s going to upset some people.
Go to the range, shoot your semi-auto excuse for manhood, but if you post the video, don’t whine about the criticism.

There is no way, B, that the behavior exhibited by those school security officers can be “understood” or condoned. They jacked up this kid for posting a vid of him shooting with his dad. Perfectly legal action. Their actions were unadulterated harassment! This was wrong on every single level. They had no right to speak to him about anything regarding this. This scenario here is the one that will be cited by 2nd Amendment advocates in the Fall.

I don’t think it has much to do with the 2nd A. it has more to do with inciting a riot.
You in particular should be especially aware of how circumstances can alter behavior, with your acute sensitivity to Muslims.

Ohhhhhh, like the Benghazi Muslims being incited by a video?
Please xplain to me, in small words, so that even I can understand, why the school cops brought the student in for a chat? He was legally shooting a gun for the first time under the supervision of his dad. How is that any f*cking business of those resource officers? At all? Kid files suit. School district settles. Boo-koo bucks! America continues to hate the Libs. This is a prime example of why yall’s anticipated Blue Wave will be a small, tiny ripple.

OK, small words- It’s not the range shooting, it’s the video. Get it?
There are a lot of grieving families in that community. Tweets and videos of that kid using an AR-15 probably feels pretty obnoxious to them. I will give the authorities the benefit of the doubt in this case and just assume they were making him aware of his poor judgement in posting that stuff.

Noway2016

Those “authorities” had no right to corral him in to speak to him. About anything. None. Period. Making him aware? What an arrogant assumption. I’m glad you give them a pass, B. Given your political stance, I’m not surprised. The civil court or school board that will ultimately hear this matter on the cop’s intimidating over reach…will not.

I think this is clearly foremost about policing procedure, with an application to gun rights. The police surely saw there was no probable cause for searches or arrests (thereby showing some understanding for 2A rights) but there was some reasonable cause for the police to try to assess the student’s intent- to make sure he wasn’t a copycat. The police could have respectfully assessed the student’s intent without presuming guilt. The police could have also just kept an eye on his social media posts. But the aggressive interrogations – that’s a common policing problem, and tactic.
