    tiredofgovtwaste - only 3 of the current seated Supreme court justices were appointed by democrats. Doesn't bode well for the republicans/conservative groups if their appointed judges are considered too liberal by rocket scientists like you.

    well said justincaseur2. However, as along as we allow the supreme court for the united states to be appointed for life and not have to face their constiguients as elected officials, nothing will change. their power to overturn and rewite the laws is out of control. look at their decisions in these cases : Alyssa Bustamante - killed nine year old Elizabeth Olten for fun, Cal Coburn Brown charged with robbery, rape, torture, mutilating, and murdering 21-year-old Holly Washa; Christopher Simmons who abducted Shirley Crook in her own home, wrapped her face in duct tape, tied her with wire, drove her to a bridge, and threw her off to drown while still conscious. in all these cases the supreme court ruled in favor of the perpetrator and ignored the suffering of the victim and their families. As long as the liberals of this nation have an agenda and are placed in positions of authority life as we know it will only get worse despite the wishes of the majority. Embrace the 2nd amend.

    Sorry as a NC person living/working in New York city and feeling
    quite safe here, "NY is not out of control" I may also feel quite
    unsafe in a so called "gated community"in NC where one may drop
    their normal guard of awareness of strangers. NYC is one of the
    safest large cities as it is so large it is hard to generalize
    and has many neighborhoods that have more crime then others.

    Me, too, justincaseur. They are simple questions:

    Who is going to protect you while you wait for the police to arrive?

    Whose side are the government entities we elected on?

    Possibly, the reason we are seeing home invasions of this sort, is because the criminals feel safer attacking us at home. They know there's the likelyhood that we are armed on the street, but, most folks like to feel secure in their homes. So, they leave their guns close by. How close is close enough?

    If your home/motorvehicle/workplace defense plan is to go get your gun, you lose.

    Fayetteville, lets get a study done on who is committing the crimes and by all means BAN consinsual search by cops.

    Ditto, justincaseur2.

    I am with you 100% Justincaseur2....same at my house, business, car....

  • justincaseur2 Mar 13, 2012

    I don't have the numbers on home invasion so I can't speak to the validity of your statement dwntwnboy but I can say that before I started carrying my home and my cars were both broken into one night when I was out at dinner. I have a relative who was shot in the head when he walked into a home invasion at his house. He died and the perp who pulled the trigger (a 13 year old boy he'd never met before who had masterminded several others in a string of similar home invasions) got released from his sentence at 21. It doesn't matter who breaks into my house...if I'm asleep and they've taken the time to find a way past the locks on the doors, they clearly have hostile intent and will not be walking out on their own.

    Fayetteville is out of control...little New York City

    "This is exactly why I choose to carry a personal defense weapon. It is a fool who makes a conscious choice to give up his rights and fails to be ready to defend his life or property when people of unsavory intent should try to take away from him what is his. If the courts didn't afford more rights to criminals than to law abiding citizens we wouldn't need to be so vigilant against crime. As it is though, jail is pretty much a trip to a hotel with free meals, labor rights, free education...pretty much a free ride. If we actually made punishments fit crimes we'd see less crime and have to fear less for our safety in this world."

    Armed robbers seem to lack fear of the criminal justice system. We should help them develop a healthy fear of justice at the end of a gun barrel.
