MCRGO NOTE: The Livonia Police response is misleading in several ways. Anyone who has been fingerprinted knows that it takes about 5 minutes, not 30. Also a sworn police officer is not required to take the prints... In fact they do fingerprint right now for anyone needing prints for employment. Until the new law took effect, they also fingerprinted for CCW permits without any complaints...now they suddenly can't/won't fingerprint CCW applicants only?

For those of us who have long admired America's attempts to act as a force for human liberty around the world, it is not just extraordinary. It is sad." --Pilita Clark

Security consultant Kenn Blanchard takes aim at a stereotype:

His site, BlackManWithAGun.net which welcomes visitors with a photo of Blanchard brandishing a submachine gun, warns: "If you had any apprehension about this site ... it is just proof of the conditioning we have all been subject to about guns. A black man with a gun is no different than any other ethnicity with one."

"Political correctness is not just destroying America, it's tearing it apart. It's everywhere, in your schools, in your workplace, in your government, in your church and in your face. ... One cannot be honest and speak freely today, you have to be 'careful what you say because it might offend someone'. Political correctness is social engineering, geared to turn neighbor against neighbor, brother against brother and race against race."

There is nothing that can be done to stop criminals doing illegal acts. If the law is intended to be a deterrent, then it is too soft to be effective. Compromising the rights of law-abiding citizens will not prevent immoral people doing terrible things to innocents – it’s a harsh, if unpalatable, fact of life.

Fingerprint scanners linked to state and federal databases can return a probable match in minutes. ... The process resembles the one used to obtain thumbprints when people acquire or renew a Texas driver's license.

There's more to policing than writing tickets and putting people in jail. -- At least that's what Edmond police officer Chad Brown hopes to prove when he becomes the department's "crime prevention" officer.

Brown said crime prevention is the "positive aspect of policing." -- Although he admits there is no way to completely prevent crime, Brown said he will try to use public education to help residents avoid becoming crime victims.
 

PA: Guns and more draw crowd to mall show

Seen at the Greengate Mall gun show, on a bumper sticker underlined for emphasis:

"If guns kill people, spoons make Rosie O'Donnell fat."

That sort of sums up the Charlton-Heston-is-my-president set, the card-carrying, Constitution-quoting true believers. The ones the liberals laughed at, until times got bad.

A few thousand of them went shopping Saturday.

--A gun show that has been routinely drawing 8,000 people for years and not one mass shooting reported yet.

"Education, you see, in the eyes of the educational establishment, is not about reading, writing and arithmetic, as so many misguided parents believe, but about directing the development of children into the kind of adults the establishment and its supporters want them to become."

--ANOTHER reason that today's youth not only don't understand the 2nd Amendment; but many of them have never even heard of it.
 

Canada: Sweeping Military Powers Stun Canadians

Canadians went to bed relatively care-free Thursday night and woke up to a nightmare. Most, if not everything in Canada's new anti-terrorism bill is completely undefined and left to the imagination of whoever in control. The military will also have the authority to remove an unauthorized person, and any animal, vehicle, vessel, aircraft or other thing (home/cottage??) under the person's control. Lastly, personnel can beat up, shoot, destroy and injure them - and get away with it too!

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
