The answer to most problems is we need more independent Special Prosecutors and Grand Juries with full unbridled investigative and indictment powers to issue subpoenas and follow the evidence wherever it may lead....WHEREVER IT MAY LEAD!

It becomes concerning when a special prosecutor fits the description, of someone who act as a 4th branch of government,[by direction of an attorney general [specifically] An Attorney General does not place limitations of spending, or time restraints during an investigation of a government official! It's a good point however where is the sense of security in knowing that an attorney general can make that choice without the public knowing for a fact that it's a waste of tax dollars??

There is no truth to be found in paperwork. It feeds the heartless machines that steal the money, and allows them to keep stealing it. Any internet information found is just a matter of another transferred document or statement, that government has themselves already made public and destroyed only to start over. This is an opinion and a valid point- however it can not be proven as a solution or a fact- until you have one!

Once again poor Ol' Joe uses a whole bunch of words to say nothing.

For the record I like hearing other opinions besides my own. I might not agree but I can respect them. Plus it helps to see another perspective where I just might gain a better understanding of the troubles in this World. And from that place formulate a successful solution.

<quoted text>sorry Joe, now you don't make any sense. Yes I know people with guns willing to blow your head off if you get in there way. Automatic rifles are not illegal. Either are Uzis to these persons who are willing to blow your head off if you don't agree with them.
So give us something real. Tell us, do you think US citizens have a right to own every weapon the US government has in our arsenal?
Your point was that you know people personally who will blow somebodies head off if they disagree with them. That was your point, your opinion and -your solution. It's about spreading a message of violence.

In the topic of GUN CONTROL a comment by BESARA was made in response to a victim who was killed with a knife [right to bear arms] was acknowledged, without dispute. However the victim who was accused of being violent in the past,[not on this occasion,] argued with his girlfriend who would eventually leave the property- only to return - they argued again she stabbed him- he died. Besara's point was that standing your ground could be used as a self defense. Recognize the point, of how this is very wrong and how self defense can not be misused!

Here ya go Joe, I'll throw ya a bone. I believe we need to practice a form of gun control where every gun sold requires a background check a waiting period and registration. If you are found with an illegal or unregistered gun the penalty should be steep.

HOWEVER

In a list of countries with the most guns per capita the US leads two to one. We have. 94.3 guns for every hundred people out of a list of 178 countries according to Wiki. Second place is Serbia with only 58.2 guns per hundred people.

Countries with the highest firearm death rate is Honduras who has only 6.2 guns per 100 people. Per Wiki.

You can argue that the number of guns per capita are insignificant relative to gun violence.

Or you can say that Honduras has no idea how many or who owns the guns because they have no gun control at all.

Statistics say these numbers are not related to drug use. The U S has the highest number of illegal drug users in the world. The DEA agrees.

Same song, firearm deaths are not related to economics, education, or religious demographics.

Do you, almighty Joe, believe the Sheriff in my parish has the right to own an Uzi for entertainment?

Your original point was that you know people with Uzi's who are willing to blow your head off if you disagree with them. An illegal weapon [not automatic rifles= UZIs ] A violation and threat to public safety.= a violation of freedom given by the Constitution. You have continued to violate that trust, by insisting on posting numbers that do not have a Valid' reliable violent crime rate connected to them. Pointing out that if someone else would like to verify those numbers they can and spreading a message of violence in the process. Threat to public safety. You have disregarded opinion from anyone at this point claiming that you have an interest in what that opinion is =hypocrite- you mention the monitoring of guns by doing background checks when people don't want our second amendment infringed upon, and ask if they think it's logical to own an illegal weapon/ infringement to the rights of freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, and a contradiction from someone who knows people personally that own an UZI. You have problems!

These persons are paranoid to the extreme. And as soon as someone mentions gun control they go BALISTIC! They are stockpiling ammunition. Waiting for.....what?
US citizens have a RIGHT to be organized terrorists?
The right to bear arms does not include anyone willing to have the point of view, that putting a loaded gun in someone's face is the solution to defending our second amendment rights!

Some times it is hard to tell if some of these public officials are right or wrong.
Most of the time they only take them out because they are honest and above reproach and will not cave to their culture of corruption.
Just as Willie Meggs offered Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch that he would drop the charges against him in exchange for Finch to resign and go away.
This is how they get rid of honest people when they have no real evidence of wrong doing.
Fifth Circuit State Attorney Brad King has been used by state to do hatchet jobs on many honest public officials. Last year he was assigned by Rick Scott to take out Third Circuit State Attorney Robert "Skip" Jarvis.
They had no evidence of criminal activity on Jarvis but when Brad King threatened him that if he took him before the grand jury and they indicted him he would loose his state pension, obviously no man even and honest man can withstand that threat. As Jarvis later said that was what he was depending on for his wife to survive when he was gone.
"independent Special Prosecutors and Grand Juries with full unbridled investigative and indictment powers" are the figment of someone's imagination.
Every Grand Jury is "lead" by the prosecutor. In today's world you will never find a Grand Jury Foreman who will stand up to the prosecutor. First of all the Grand Jurors are hand picked to do the bidding of the corrupt prosecutor. It has always been said "A good prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich!"
There are no real prosecutors anymore! They protect their criminal friends and persecute their enemies who dare to bring their corruption to light.
In the case of Nick Finch & Willy Meggs they are being protected by what becomes the unlawful Sunshine law. Anyone holding a public office shall not be held responsible for their mistakes regardless of outcome, is not written in those words according to the 'law' it's careful placed to mean something reasonable close to avoid prosecution. Yes it's very wrong!
