"The renewed scandal involving alleged missing machine guns that had been secretly and illicitly purchased by officers with the Albany, NY Police Department several years ago suggests that if New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to go after illegal guns, he need only drive up the Hudson River with his rogue investigators and turn them loose, the Second Amendment Foundation said today."

"The Albany Times Union reported this week that dozens of automatic weapons, obtained apparently without approval by police officers ... during the first Clinton Administration were originally thought to have been rounded up and destroyed a few years ago. But now, the newspaper said, some of these guns are apparently still missing. ..." ...

"BECK: We've already had that. We don't put NASCARs onto highways and we don't put machine guns into the hands of people, either."

"HELMKE: That`s an interesting issue because there was a machine gun in effect ban that was passed by the federal government in 1934. What's the NRA's impression of that?"

"BECK: Chris, Chris."

"HELMKE: How about the Brady Bill?"

"BECK: Chris, are you for fully automatic machine guns?"

"COX: We've never advocated fully automatic machine guns and Paul knows it." ...

"Last week I participated in a local IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) event. If any of you have never tried shooting at an IDPA event, you really should give it a shot. People of all abilities show up & get to try out fun things that are normally "against the rules" at many gun ranges. Usually there are 3 to 4 "stages" that have different scenarios to try. In any given "stage", you'll test your speed of the draw, shooting at multiple targets, tactical & speed loading, shooting while walking backwards, forwards, shooting from behind cover, from your knees or on the ground, etc. All things that are very fun to do but often prohibited at the local range during normal open range time." ...

"In regard to Steven Calabresi's Oct. 1 editorial-page commentary 'The Right Judicial Litmus Test':"

"A non-lawyer's view of "originalism" in deciding constitutional issues might be an interesting counterpoint to Mr. Calabresi's essay extolling its virtues. ... The Constitution is remarkably unclear in many places and for someone to claim that only they have the key is absurd. Let's look at three examples." ...

"The Second Amendment deals with the rights of the people within a well-regulated militia to bear arms. Does it apply to machine guns? To grenade launchers? To vigilante groups? To the guy in the street? ..." ...

Submitter's Note: The Second Amendment doesn't apply to people or items, it applies to the government.

"John Lennon would have turned 67 years old Tuesday were it not for the agitated roar of yet another madman's gun. If he were still with us, I think he might well ask when we, as a society, will outgrow our wars and weapons, and cultivate diplomacy and compassion instead." ...

"To all those who support the National Rifle Association, oppose gun control, as well as 'give money to people with minds that hate,' you prove one thing, and one thing only: this world doesn't deserve the likes of Mr. Lennon any more than it is worthy of every ounce of innocent blood shed to protect your flag and your so-called constitutional right to bear arms." ...

"I can't help to think about my defense when I hear about violent crime on the news. There was a report about two Delaware university students shot. Not long ago, a student at Virginia Tech stormed the campus with a gun."

"We ought to do something; we can't just fold our hands and let others control our lives."

"The Second Amendment right to bear arms was made for a reason, which is to protect ourselves from violent attacks."

"Some people might say that more guns leads to more violent crime. There are advantages and disadvantages to things in life. People have accidents with cars every day, gas cookers explode and houses burn, but we still use all these things because our lives depend on them." ...

"Activists on both sides of America's contentious debate over gun control are gearing up for what could be a major showdown. Their focus is on the nation's highest court, which has been asked to decide whether Washington D.C.'s ban on handguns is constitutional. If the Supreme Court takes the case, that will set the stage for a high-stakes legal fight over the meaning of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. Malcolm Brown reports from Washington."

"... Seegars wants a gun for personal protection. 'I say to the people who don't want one personally, I tell them, 'Then that's your choice, but everybody should have the right to say 'yes' or 'no' and not have them saying 'no' for you'.'" ...

"However – and hopefully! – they do have a third alternative: they can always back Ron Paul."

"Ron Paul is not only the libertarian candidate, but he is also the most original old-style conservative. First of all, he is no flip-flopper: the man has principles and actually sticks to them – not a common feature nowadays. ..." ...

"The list of things that Ron Paul’s position overlaps with traditional conservatives could go on for much longer. Ron Paul is, after all, a pro-gun, pro-life candidate – and a faithful Christian as well. How much more conservative could he get?" ...

"CIVIL Government is an expedient for collecting the wisdom and force of a community or confederacy, in order to preserve its peace and liberty against every hostile invasion, whether from within or from without..."

"...By this force I do not mean a standing army. God forbid, that standing armies should ever find an establishment in America. They are every where the grand supports of arbitrary power, and the chief causes of the depression of mankind. No wise people will trust their defence out of their own hands, or consent to hold their rights at the mercy of armed slaves. Free States ought to be bodies of armed citizens..."

"In my recent article 'The End Of America: The Police State Is Right Here, Right Now' I included experiences of escalating intimidation on the part of law enforcement in the United States within recent months. I must confess that when I cite such incidents, I fear that in a few days or weeks, it will all go away, and everyone else, myself included, will begin to question the validity of the examples, breathing a heavy sigh of relief and rejoicing that the situation isn't nearly as dire as I'm asserting it is."

"This time, however, I have nothing to fear because since that article was posted, the ante of out-of-control law enforcement in America appears to have been upped with a rapidity that I could not have imagined just a few weeks ago." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

ARMED police, together with a police helicopter and dogs, were called to a house in Sidcup today following reports of armed men trying to break in.

The incident took place in Woodlands Avenue just after noon.

Police were responding to reports that three men, armed with knives and a gun, were trying to get into the house.

But police failed to find the three men.

The occupant of the house, a woman in her 20s, was at home at the time, but fled to a neighbour's house, where police found her safe and well.

Detectives from Bexley CID are investigating the incident.
