Collectivist slob Michael Moore, having previously demanded that the citizenry be disarmed, now wants to disarm local cops.

"Next demand: Disarm the police."

The only comments I would bother addressing to Moore would be to lose weight and bathe regularly.

Whenever I see his loathsome image, I just get a feeling that his home reeks like an untidy charnel house.

Better idea: disarm his bodyguards and send him through some of the worst areas of inner-city utopias.

It’s appropriate to say, “You go first” to the state that will be doing the gun grabbing.

My 2-yr old son used to demand stuff too. My 2-yr old grew out of it.

"Disarm the police. We have a 1/4 billion 2nd amendment guns in our homes 4 protection. We'll survive til the right cops r hired"

Aside from the illiterate phrasing, I find it hard to disagree with this proposal. Sheriffs (and deputies) should really serve as law-enforcement officers, being primarily dependent on the local militia for the use of actual force, which the officers merely coordinate and authorize.

The fundamental principle of accountability is violated when the same entity may authorize, employ, and then 'investigate' the use of lethal force. It takes superhuman rectitude and restraint to refrain from abusing the combination of these roles. And if our police are really such supermen, why can't they just use their miraculous powers to enforce the law instead of relying on weapons?

The answer is that they don't have miraculous powers because they are merely human, and thus we should not subject them to temptations beyond any mortal capacity to resist. When we do indeed find "the right cops", beings with inhuman integrity and divine powers, then perhaps we can hire them to alleviate our share of the burden. But until then, why not rely on the law-enforcement mechanism provided in the Constitution?

Three problems:
1.) What exactly is a "2nd amendment gun"?
2.) What qualifies a person as a "right cop", and how would we recognize it?
3.) Why do we care what Mr. Moore has to say? He may have a 1st Amendment right to make a statement, but we are under no obligation to either pay attention to it or care.
