"Arguing that the state's murder case 'challenged the foundation of the right to defend yourself,' two Harford County businessmen were acquitted."

"Prosecutors said the men, frustrated by repeated burglaries at their business, were acting with murder in mind, not self-defense, when they killed Tygon Walker. But Baltimore Circuit Court Judge John M. Glynn pronounced Kenny Der and Darrell R. Kifer not guilty of first-degree murder seconds after attorneys finished their closing arguments."

Bush, Ashcroft, Terrorism and Guns: The Great Hypocrisy

"Evidence is mounting that weak U.S. gun laws allow terrorists easy access to weapons." -- Really? Care to back that up with some statistics, or is this another case of "everybody knows, so therefore I need no evidence, save for a few choice vitriolic lies"?

"Yet when the issue is guns, the Bush Administration -- despite its early promises of a fight against terrorism, wherever it may lead -- has adopted a 'hands off' policy. Why?" -- Because the Constitution of the United States guarantees that the right to keep and bear arms won't be infringed, you hand-wringing, bed-wetting liar!

"Unfortunately for the health and safety of the American public, the answer is that Bush and Ashcroft care far more about the NRA than you and me." -- Bush and Ashcroft's job is to enforce the law. The Law of the Land is the US Constitution. If you want nanny government to "care about you," you're free to leave this country.
