One In A Billion Gunshot Disabled Criminal's Gun


AURORA COLORADO - A Jefferson County sheriff's deputy who was involved in an off-duty shooting has been cleared. The Aurora Sentinel reports that Arapahoe County prosecutors on Wednesday said Deputy Jose Marquez acted appropriately when he exchanged gunfire with attempted robbery suspects in an apartment parking lot in Aurora in January. Marquez was visiting his girlfriend when two armed suspects approached him with their guns drawn. He was shot multiple times in the chest and abdomen before the suspects ran away. One of the suspects was wounded in the leg and arrested. The other suspect fled and has not been identified. One of Marquez's bullets struck the suspect's pistol, traveling straight down that gun's barrel and disabling it. Officials say such a shot is "one in a billion."

He Said It's Easier To Buy A Gun Than A Book, Really?


DALLAS TEXAS - I've waited a few days before writing about this because the statement made by President Obama in Dallas this week saying that's it's easier to buy a gun than a book was so far wrong I didn't really know how to respond. Even folks who like and support the President have to admit his statement does not pass the test of any sort of credibility. Like so many leaders before him, that Washington D.C. bubble that has swallowed up American presidents for years has taken him down as well. I remember when he was first elected he said he wanted to keep his Blackberry handy so he did not lose touch with the common person. Apparently, he put that mobile device away long ago because no person living in the real world would believe it's really easier to buy a gun than a book or computer.
