JPFO Alert: Sanders' "Middle" Ground on Guns is in Exact Center of Intolerable

Today's JPFO Alert notes that if Bernie Sanders' position in the gun rights/"gun control" debate is the "middle" he claims it to be, there's no room for "extreme" short of mandatory capital punishment for gun ownership.

Sanders' idea of the "middle" would also ban semi-automatic, detachable magazine-fed rifles--popularly, if inaccurately, referred to as "assault weapons"--and the "high capacity" (gun ban zealot-speak for "standard capacity") magazines that feed them. This is the "middle"? Sending people to prison for buying the most popular class of centerfire rifles in America is his idea of respecting the rights of gun owners? Prison time for buying an 11-round magazine is the "compromise" he wants to sell us? Outlawing the most useful arms for defense of one's home, one's life, one's family, and one's liberty is part of the give-and-take he proposes?

JPFO Alert: If Retired Cops Are Safer With Unlocked Guns, Why Aren't the Rest of Us?

Today's JPFO Alert Today's JPFO Alert wonders why "safety" for cops and, and for the rest of us, requires two diametrically opposed solutions.

We are told that we are to lock up our guns, "for safety." We are told that cops (and retired cops) must have unlocked guns . . . "for safety." How does once having worn a badge make what's safe for one person the exact opposite of what's safe for the next?
