Bill O'Reilly talks about guns, death, Mafia
Submitted by: Kevin Novak

"You can't ever wipe out evil," Fox News Channel star O'Reilly tells the new issue of Esquire. "But it's like if someone comes to your house bent on killing you or your family, what do you do? You don't negotiate with them. You don't try and understand why they're coming in to kill you and your family. You kill them."

O'Reilly, who was just blasted by Sean Penn as being "worse that Osama bin Laden," isn't afraid to die himself.
 

An Aid to Understanding Liberalism

"I believe a prime example of projection is our attitudes toward race. Before the 1960s, a liberal was one who believed that all people are equal and who advocated a color-blind society. But since the 1960s, it is "liberal" to push for racial quotas in college admissions and employment.

"It is one thing to take those who themselves were unfairly held back and push them to the front of the line. It is quite another to favor some at the expense of others, purely on the basis of race, or gender." --David C. Stolinsky

"Study proves" guns and kids don't mix
Submitted by: Kevin Novak

A study conducted by "Violence Policy Center" shows the majority of children killed by guns had been shot "by" handguns. From 1995 through 99 at least 3,971 children ages 1-17 died "of handgun violence." Of those, 32.1% were killed by another child who obviously did not fathom how deadly those guns could be until it was too late.

Indianapolis Star's Position: "Children in the United States are more likely to die from an automobile crash or by drowning than gunshot. But there would be far fewer firearm deaths among youngsters if adults were more responsible gun owners."

KABA NOTE: And they are right, on both counts! Educating the children in one's house is part of being responsible, and would have prevented these deaths.

PS: If the VPC's numbers are right, it works out to 2.18 1-17 years olds killed each day -- HARDLY the usual "9" they claim.

After his artificial hip set off a metal detector, the 75-year-old Michigan Democrat was ordered to pull down his pants at Reagan National Airport as he tried to board Northwest Airlines Flight 1417 to Detroit.

He also refused a request to send his wallet through the X-ray machine, telling employees that a few weeks earlier jewelry had been stolen from his wife, General Motors Foundation President Debbie Dingell, when she sent it through.
 

MD: U.S. Attorney's "weak stance" on guns

SO U.S. Attorney Thomas M. DiBiagio has stepped into the vortex of killing known as Baltimore and announced - as publicly as he can - that he'd like to stand above the battleground rather than get knee-deep in it.

Forget about tough enforcement of federal gun laws, which could land miscreants in jail for five years just for carrying. Mr. DiBiagio has no time for that.
 

New Drivers' Licenses Study Underway

The government is working with the states to develop a new generation of drivers' licenses that could be checked anywhere and would contain electronically stored information such as fingerprints for the country's 184 million licensed drivers.

Privacy experts fear the effort may lead to national identification cards that would allow authorities to track citizens electronically, a backdoor way to establish federal ID cards despite strong opposition from many Americans.

'Arming America': Fiction, not History

A VERY DETERMINED gun rights proponent has delivered the ammunition to shoot down Arming America, last year’s Bancroft Prize for American History. Clayton Cramer, software engineer by day, historian by night, has spent the last 18 months documenting the lack of historical accuracy as well as the fabrication of data in a book that had been hailed as "brilliantly researched and very well written."

It was 10:30a.m. on Nov. 7 when the two men showed up. Donna Huanca was alone, getting ready to open Houston's Art Car Museum. "They looked like robots," she says.

She told the men, dressed in dark suits and carrying leather portfolios, that they would have to wait until the doors opened at 11. That was when they flipped out their badges: They were federal agents investigating reports of "anti-American activity" at the tiny art gallery.
 

Anti-gun Opportunism in Action

A few members of Congress have been using last year's terrorist attacks to justify another push for tough gun laws. Fear makes fertile ground for any law that promises greater security, but this effort is a stretch. Everyone knows that the only weapons used in the Sept. 11 hijackings were box cutters.

Denver will probably appeal a federal judge's ruling that paves the way for a former police officer to get his job back.

That means Alex Woods Jr.'s six-year legal odyssey will continue -- along with the debate over a federal domestic violence law.

On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Daniel Sparr ruled that Woods was exempt from a 1996 federal law that bars anyone convicted of domestic violence from carrying a gun.

Saying the "rule of the gun" must end, the UN human rights representative for Afghanistan insisted that Afghans "will feel truly free" only after weapons are restricted, jobs created and daily routines re-established.

But Kamal Hossain said that can happen only if two pivotal parties -- Afghanistan's interim government and the international community that backs it -- keep their word to a population already hardened by years of broken promises.

Despite being acquitted, Hodnett - who had been involved in two previous off-duty shootings that had been ruled justified - was fired in May 1999. The reasons Police Chief Arthur Jones gave at the time were that Hodnett had consumed alcoholic beverages while armed, and off-duty, "failed to safeguard a service weapon and failed to follow procedures for officers on using force."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.... We've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of government himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price. — Ronald Reagan
