Protesters in Salt Lake City came armed to a Saturday rally against gun control laws, among them a two-year-old girl bearing a toy six-shooter and carrying a sign with a message for the president. [Snip] The little girl, sporting a pink shirt, matching pink boots and a flower in her blond curls, was clutching a cardboard sign nearly as big as she is that read: ´Mr President, sir, why don’t you want my mom + dad to protect their 2 girls like you protect your 2 girls - with gun?´ The pint-sized protester was only one of dozens of children

See the little kid in the orange shirt, with a toy six-gun? Notice how he doesn´t have his finger on the trigger? He´s been trained.

The kids who shoot themselves and each other "accidentally" are those who are unfamiliar with firearms. Kids raised around weapons learn how to be safe.

What´s wrong with forming a "children´s army" of marchers to protest that their parents are not permitted to protect them any more if Obama gets his way?

We need a major SwiftBoat-ing from American citizens. A media blitzkreig emphasizing that protecting one´s family and children is a right, not a dispensation from the White House, media moguls and Hollywood.

Somebody shoot me. I almost agree with part of #3´s post. Kids should not be at political rallies of any kind. They are not old enough to have a valid opinion on anything, and it is just creepy.

Yes, they are cute. Yes it is good to teach them about gun safety and marksmanship. My kids were taught as I was, and I am teaching my grandkids now. It is more important now than ever. Just please, leave them at home on protest day.

Agree with #6 whole heartedly. Chicks with guns are totally hot.

It must be depressing to be surrounded with people so incompetent that they are afraid of what they might or might not do if they are within reach of a weapon. People so stupid to think if they had a handgun they would keep it loaded under their pillow? And that’s what ‘untrained unprofessional’ people with weapons do? And that the only ‘trained professionals’ are Secret Service…and of course….the police!
Once one moves away from from the circle of nitwits trembling at the thought of a big, ugly revolver….. into the real world where there are millions of people capable of owning, handling, carrying and (if necessary) using a weapon safely it becomes clear that, first of all, it isn’t rocket science, and second, it’s not the big bug-a-boo that liberals make it out to be.

This would make an awesome TV commercial. Nothing wrong with having children in a positive light.

The taxpayers are paying for the protecion of Obama´s children as they do all children of a president. Most people cannot not afford to hire professionals to protect their family. I Dad skilled in the use of firearms is a great Dad and protector.

Responsible parents are responsible, slobs aren´t and no amount of government intervention will change that. Meanwhile, I sure wish communities would revive the ´shooting matches´ that used to be a normal part of America. I´d happily go target to target against the local police, and especially the NY state police, for a turkey. I´d have to do it under an assumed name though, because the NY state police are the Governor´s private police force. They gleefully collect info on opponents and do things like reduce screening points at Albany anti-gun ´safe act´ rallies. Then they turn up the sensitivity meters on the detectors at the reduced entry points. ´Trained professionals,´ that´s just one of the problems with that exemption.

Having these way too numerous Oryctolagus cuniculus in our society is just sad. And they appear to not have a clue about ´trained professionals´. #7 has the right idea.

These people at the rally appear to be with their own children, NOT someone´s child acquired for a photo op.

#10, 17 - these libtards use the phrase ´trained professionals´ as a dog whistle for ´only the government´. They never have an answer when asked, "What about those of us who were trained to even higher standards than the aforementioned ´professionals´, but who don´t currently work for the government?" That´s when some of them blurt out the truth - they believe only the government (and its agents) should have the weapons. They aren´t really Americans, just proto-collectivist-slaves working to help their future would-be masters take over.

Sue Townsend was working on a new Adrian Mole novel when she died, with the working title of Pandora’s Box. The book was due for publication this autumn and Townsend had sent “a few wonderful pages” to her editor, Louise Moore, earlier this year. It is not known if the author had completed a first draft, and it will now be up to her family to decide what, if anything, of the project will be published. The working title raises the wonderful prospect that Townsend planned for her hero to be romantically reunited with Pandora, object of his affection since

Bill Clinton would do just about anything for daughter Chelsea--and it seems to extend to stumping for her mother-in-law, a Congressional candidate embroiled in a scandal over the use of charitable funds to feather her own nest. The former president sang the praises of Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, the mother of Chelsea’s husband Marc Mezvinsky, at a $5,000-a-pop private VIP fund-raiser on her behalf held today at the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia. An audience of 100 paid $1,000 each for the privilege of hearing President Clinton extoll the political virtues of Margolies. Another 50 donors paid $5,000 to get their

WASHINGTON--Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama´s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday. Her resignation comes just one week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces. Sebelius´ resignation following her five-year tenure in Obama´s Cabinet comes as the White House seeks to rebound from the politically damaging launch of the health

The House Oversight Committee voted Thursday to refer a ´Contempt of Congress´ vote on former IRS official Lois Lerner to the full House of Representatives. [Snip] In May 2013 and March 2014, Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer Oversight members´ questions about a plan she allegedly led to subject right-wing groups to years of intrusive questions before they could claim a special tax-exempt status. Liberal applicants were quickly green-lighted. A visibly angry South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy provided the biggest rhetorical fireworks on Thursday, demanding that Democrats join with the GOP in approving the resolution. None

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Thursday that 7.5 million Americans had enrolled in Obamacare insurance coverage by the time the dust settled on April 1, but reused to tell senators how many of them were already covered before the law took full effect. The question is an important one: Republicans claim that most of those who signed up are Americans who lost their existing policies in 2013 because they didn´t meet the Affordable Care Act´s strict and sometimes bewildering minimum standards. President Barack Obama promised that his signature insurance overhaul law would dramatically reduce the ranks of the

Holder went off-script Wednesday during a speech to Al Sharpton´s National Action Network, slammed Republicans for consistently attacking him and Barack Obama because they are the first African-Americans to hold their jobs. ´What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?´ he said, alluding to his status as the only African-American ever to hold that post.

One week ago, President Obama was celebrating. 7.1 million Americans had signed up to his landmark law. Today however, it’s the same old story. Once again, Obamacare is critical. The latest crisis? For Americans who don’t yet possess health insurance, the US health care market is now effectively on lockdown until the year’s end. Yes, you heard that right. [Snip] The flowing narrative is all too clear--didn’t sign up by the President’s shifting deadlines? Take a hike. This latest incident speaks volumes about Obamacare--a law that was born in arrogant partisanship and is now defined by utter absurdity.

Republicans on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee won a vote Wednesday demanding the Justice Department criminally prosecute Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of a scheme to slow-walk tax-exempt applications from conservative groups. They claim she committed three federal crimes punishable by a total of 11 years in prison. The panel voted 23-14, along party lines, to approve a letter instructing Attorney General Eric Holder to charge Lerner and prosecute her in court.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.
