As her husband recovers at University Hospital from broken ribs and a punctured lung and his suspected attacker sits behind bars denied bail, she marvels how Broward sheriff's deputies arrived in the nick of time to save her husband.

Providing further evidence that the Democratic gubernatorial primary will become a politically bloody bout, Robert P. Casey Jr. said Tuesday he would not sign a pledge against negative campaigning.

“If you are a voter deciding whether or not one person should be entrusted with enormous power … there has to be some basic scrutiny that’s applied to a candidate,” Casey told newspaper publishers and editors at a debate. “That’s part of the process. People understand that and expect it.”

In the name of creating a national identity card for U.S. citizens, the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators is calling on states to develop a standardized driver's license.

Aside from the usual personal stats, the cards would be digitally programmed with fingerprints and retinal scans — information that would be accessible to state agencies across the country.

"We don't see this as a national ID," said Jay Maxwell of the AAMVA.

The totalitarians are fully in control of America's largest state.

The battle for California is over. Write it off. Kiss it goodbye. Bid it a fond farewell.

What am I talking about?

Listen to this: The California Supreme Court ruled 4-3 last Thursday that police in the state may search cars if a driver fails to produce a license or registration, regardless of whether the officer has a warrant.

"Thank God The Post had the guts to report the real story about what happened at the Appalachian School of Law ('The Missing Gun,' Opinion, John Lott Jr., Jan. 25).

Two students were brave enough to go their cars, retrieve their guns and proceed to stop a madman from claiming more victims. However, the mainstream media managed to ignore these two heroes, in order to protect their own views on gun control." --Wayne Conger, York, Pa.

"Though the media is touting Senate Bill 60 as a "concealed carry" bill, this legislation has serious flaws if you actually believe in freedom. In almost every area of concern, SB60 moves Colorado concealed carry law backward, not forward. For those currently with concealed carry permits, it is even worse..." --Dudley Brown of RMGO

The mission should have been simple enough. An 18-man patrol of Afghanistan's fledgling police force moved out to seize an artillery launcher from soldiers at a medieval hilltop fort overlooking the city. But the renegade troops refused to give up the weapon. The tin-helmeted police left, though not quite empty-handed, confiscating the wheels from the weapon's trailer and rendering it immobile.

"One of the earliest hot-button floor votes in the Minnesota Legislature, which convenes Tuesday, could occur in the Senate over whether to greatly expand permits to carry concealed weapons in the state. Advocates of looser permit requirements are hoping to bring back a bill that was narrowly rejected last May, and which they say they have the votes to pass this time." --Opinion of the PioneerPlanet

The federal government is handing over the administration and operation of its costly gun licensing and registration system to the private sector, documents show.

Dave Kopel: Mischaracterizations of D.C. gun-control group bespeak sloppy reporting, editing at newspapers.

The Washington, D.C., gun-control group Americans for Gun Safety released a report criticizing the operation of the background check system for gun buyers in Colorado and other states. Rather than calling AGS what it is -- a gun-control group -- the Rocky Mountain News in its story on the report called AGS "a national group that monitors gun safety."

SB363, bans the possession of virtually all firearm ammunition.

Wisconsin’s gun owners owe a debt of gratitude to State Senator Dave Zien (R-Wheaton), who shed light on this brazen attack on freedom. As a result of his efforts, 15 of the bill’s 19 sponsors have pulled their names from the legislation.

KABA NOTE: Inotherwords, they didn't read it before cosigning.

Utah doesn't charge a fee to vote, speak or worship, so the state shouldn't charge a fee to buy a firearm, say advocates for a bill eliminating background check fees that won preliminary approval Tuesday.

House Bill 183 would do away with the $7.50 charge assessed at the point of all licensed gun sales in Utah.

"When all else fails, vote from the rooftops." Fifty caliber rifles are terrorist weapons, the document asserts, and those who own and use them are part of a growing "sniper culture" in the United States who may soon unleash a wave of assassination and sabotage with their "superguns." The ludicrously exaggerated account ascribes to .50 caliber rifles just about every known military capability short of sinking the U.S. Sixth Fleet.

GUN CONTROL opponents have long repeated variations of the slogan “guns don’t kill people, criminals do.” The idea can be traced at least as far back as the Roman philosopher Seneca, who said, “a sword never kills anybody; it’s a tool in a killer’s hand.”

The House Criminal Justice Committee heard a bill Tuesday that would prohibit police from arresting anyone just for driving without wearing a seat belt.

"I do not want to handicap our law enforcement officials," Rep. Balkman said. But he said a law that allows officers to arrest people for minor traffic offenses goes beyond what statutes generally allow.

When the other jail inmates asked Angelica Flores what she was in for, she hesitated... Flores and her husband, Tony, last year violated a code requiring Christmas decorations to be removed 19 days after the holiday. They were still on the home in April.

-- Not directly KABA related, but crime *must* be WAY down in Arizona if they are arresting people for leaving Christmas lights up???
