Comment Of The Day

The comment of the day comes from Jon Caldara. He is the president of the Colorado-based Independence Institute. His comment came in reference to the calls to ban personally made firearms and the ignorance of those pushing it.

My very favorite social media meme is a picture of a car’s manual-transmission gear shift. It reads, “millennial anti-theft device.”

Wouldn’t it be weird if people who’ve never driven a stick shift tried to outlaw them? Well, that’s the anti-gun movement.

Caldara’s comment is very astute and is totally on the mark.

For those that don’t know, Caldara is the one who sued the People’s Republic of Boulder when they tried to ban possession of certain semi-automatic rifles.

“Sickness In Our Souls” – John Morse

Jon Caldera, President of the Independence Institute, hosts a program on Colorado Public TV called Devils Advocate. In one of his shows, he quoted Colorado Senate President John Morse (D-Colorado Springs) saying that those who opposed his gun laws had a “sickness in their souls”. Morse is now objecting that he was taken out of context and that isn’t what he meant. Morse said he wasn’t referring to gun owners but violence in general.

Caldera has the transcript of Morse’s comment and says what Morse said is exactly what he meant. He has now challenged Morse to come on his show and explain himself.
