An effort to feed Afghan refugees returning from Pakistan descended into violence here today as food ran short and local soldiers beat back a hungry crowd. As the crowd dispersed, relief officials said they had run low on food because shipments had been stolen by local warlords...the same soldiers who were trying to control the crowd were actually linked to the source of the problem.

Americans have rights, too - a message that many have been trying to convey to the powers in Washington. Our goal is simple and within the power of our Congress: to end the ESA and all laws, judicial orders associated with it. To restore productivity, self-sufficiency and return American lands to Americans.

An emergency rule approved Friday by the Capitol Preservation Board spells out that anyone with a valid concealed-weapon permit may pack heat in the state's most prominent government building.

The new regulation -- without saying it in so many words -- also permits citizens to enter the Capitol with a gun strapped on their hip, or in an openly visible manner, so long as there is no round in the chamber.

TN: Infant Shoots, Kills Cop Father

"A 22-year-old policeman was killed by his 3-year-old son when the boy picked up his father's gun off the kitchen table and accidentally fired."

--A tragic accident. But I wonder what safety rules were broken? And I wonder how it is that the gun-ban advocates think there is some magic that goes with a badge that makes police safer, less mistake prone, etc. than the concerned citizen who gets licensed, takes training, searches for safe arms, practices often, and maintains his equipment well?

Sadly, Gov. Parris Glendening doesn't believe strongly enough in gun safety education for kids. He vetoed legislation to require school systems to have firearms safety programs for all grades, kindergarten through high school. Gun deaths among children are on the decline. "Part of that drop is due to tougher gun laws."

Not gun-related, but significant nonetheless:

"The Justice Department can 'legally' use a controversial electronic surveillance technique in its prosecution of an alleged mobster."

Whatever happened to that little provision in Article VI of the Constitution making it the "supreme law of the land"? And the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution?
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?
