    Since crazed gunmen never take their own lives before ruining a plethora of entire families, my New Year’s resolution is, and make no mistake, I’m not a gun person, that someone with a license to carry a concealed weapon will cease the day and take out the gunman who is going on a rampage. Just one person, with one concealed license and a weapon, most normally a good enough shot to pull it off, just take the bastard out. Period. Since there’s no way to accurately keep track of how many idiots buy semi’s illegally, might as well have someone with a sound mind and the paperwork carrying a concealed weapon to protect us prior to the police arriving, much too late.

  2. Keep fighting the noble fight, I welcome the insight. Thanks for the effort.

  3. Happy New Year BG. The 100 pounds seems a bit unnecessary and ambitious. How about 50? As for the desire to sprout a full mop….the odds are probably better that our Mayor will give up on his childish trolley dream. In other words…it ain’t happenin!

  4. Legislature will not debate any stupid issues.
    –Legislature will agree to adopt West Point Honor Code and “Not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do.”ask what they think is a stupid issues? and this how open government works in Idaho?

    sorry but I have delt with the Idaho Legislature and do know how they think one thing and say only half of what they mean.

  5. Diane, there was just an incident like that. Two days after the CT school shooting, on off duty Deputy in San Antonio Texas shot an armed suspect outside of a movie theater. The suspect had already shot one and was trying to shoot others when the deputy shot the suspect. I feel that since this shooting was so close after the school shooting and the media was already running it’s “anti gun” views, it didn’t get a lot of attention.

  6. The GUARDIAN will mark the ripe old age of 8…

    Typo? You meant 38… right?

    Oh! You mean your website! Never mind…

    Dave, a sincere thanks from THIS reader for the service and information you provide. In this day and age of evolving news reporting, you have filled an important void. I don’t always agree with you (you can’t ALWAYS be right! haha!), but I check the Guardian almost every day, and your news is good and your opinions always well-informed. (And you look WAY better in real life, than you do in that mirror!)

    For a resolution, I paraphrase the bumpersticker:
    (Except when somebody very much deserves a barkin’ at…)

    May ’13 be our luckiest year ever!

  7. I would add one more to your list: And that would be the boys and girls of our legilsature play nice and get out of town in less than 90 days.

    They could save taxpayers a bundle if they went to every other year like TEXAS, MONTANA and other states. And with that they have 4 year terms of office.
