"We've got work to do, folks. Forget about Congress authorizing the President to wage war. Whoever is waging war against us didn't bother with legislative authorization. Read the news report below, and then roll up your sleeves. In short, the Washington Metroplex is under an effective siege at this time. If we don't get on top of this, no doubt it will spread." ...

"The ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee has accused some gun manufacturers of marketing so-called 'sniper rifles' in a manner that 'appears to intentionally appeal to law breakers.' "

" 'The D.C. Metropolitan area has been hit by a tragic flurry of gun violence,' Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) said at a Capitol Hill news conference Thursday. 'Nine innocent people have been killed or injured by a serial killer who is using the technology of sniper rifles.' "

"There wasn't good cause or enough evidence to fire a Friendswood teacher who has been accused of shooting a gun in her classroom, a state hearing examiner has ruled."

"Kemah resident Norvella Susette Gibson was let go from her job after authorities said she fired a shot into her classroom at Friendswood Junior High School before school started last year on Nov. 30."

"When the incident first happened, Gibson reported that someone had fired three shots into her classroom. Nobody was injured, but the report led to a four-hour lockdown of the campus."

"In March, a Galveston County grand jury indicted the reading and language arts teacher on one count of carrying a weapon where possession is prohibited, a third-degree felony." ...

"Robert J. Thomas, the hearing examiner assigned by the state, said there was a lack of evidence, no investigation by the school district and no thorough police records in the case..."

"Thomas said missing police records, a videotape that showed three students discussing how they disliked Gibson and how they planned to bury the gun used in the incident, and no witness statements taken from students in the classroom all added up to a case based on hearsay."

Infractions too numerous to list. But here's one:

"As a result of the investigation into firearms training and procedures, it was discovered that police in Kensington did not complete adequate training, had a policy of leaving loaded shotguns overnight in police cruisers, and often trained on a firing range before classroom training."

"Six people were killed by sniper bullets in the Washington, D.C., area last week, while another two people were wounded including a 13-year-old boy but authorities are, so far, stumped as to suspects and motive." ...

"But whether these shootings are the opening rounds of a new homeland-based terror campaign or simply the work of a lunatic the 'death card sniper,' if you will it's a safe bet one of the first responses made by our leaders, once they get over the shock of the attacks, will be to stump for more gun control. There is nothing more dangerous to liberty and freedom than a frightened lawmaker. And after decades of trying to breed our survival instinct out of us, it's only natural for millions of Americans to turn to others for protection." ...

"Little has been said about gun control during this campaign. Oh, sure, Gray Davis is running on gun control in California, but in states from Illinois to Michigan to Pennsylvania, where Democrats gubernatorial candidates with strong gun-control records are running, the issue is being played down. Is this a real change of heart or merely a tactical retreat?" ...

"A Berkeley, Calif., lawyer who has overseen police reforms in 13 cities around the country will lead a team of 20 legal and law-enforcement experts to monitor a sweeping overhaul of Cincinnati's police department." ...

"The [police] monitor's role is a critical one. Dr. Kalmanoff will provide the key oversight of two historic agreements the city made this year in the aftermath of the April 2001 riots, which were sparked by the police shooting death of a fleeing unarmed man in an Over-the-Rhine alley."

"The agreements ended a Justice Department investigation and suspended a federal lawsuit that accused Cincinnati police of racial profiling and decades of discrimination against African-Americans."

" 'The shootings in Montgomery County are a perfect example of how valuable complete ballistic fingerprinting would be,' said Eric Gorovitz, who tracks gun laws for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. 'It makes sense for every firearm made to be ballistically fingerprinted. It doesn't expose anybody to the specter of tyranny.' "

"We've got terror right here at home, Mr. President, stirred up by a lunatic with an old-fashioned weapon of mass destruction, a gun."

"Which brings me to an urgent question: If we respect the constitutional right of people to bear arms until they use those arms to commit crimes, why do we not use all of our available tools to trace bullets and guns used in those crimes?"

"Gunmen fired at unarmed police officers in a Battersea street after drugs were found in a car during a routine spot-check last week."

"The four male officers were patrolling Wandsworth last Friday, October 4, when they stopped two men acting suspiciously in Broughton Street at around 9pm."

"They decided to search their car and discovered a package of drugs. At this point, one of the suspects suddenly produced a gun, firing at the officers as the pair ran off along the street."

"Although the officers were unarmed, they chased the pair through neighbouring streets but they managed to escape minutes later."

"Rob Foreman... said it might be a little bit much."

" 'I think the parents are more paranoid than we are,' he said. 'I can't see some little old mother stopping someone from coming in with a gun, but I understand why they're there.' "

[Unless, of course, the little old mother had a firearm of her own. But no - not in Maryland. They must depend on "real" security.]

"Officials are careful to stress that the parental presence doesn't take the place of real security measures."

Shepherdstown businesswoman Nancy VanTol was initially stopped for a burned-out headlight.

Luke Collins, who was working at the Blue Moon Cafe at the time, said that after VanTol got out of her car and started walking toward the restaurant, Lynch "took her down aggressively."

Lynch rolled VanTol over, put his knee on her back and handcuffed her, Collins said.

A second officer ran to the scene and held his gun about 3 feet from VanTol as she was on the ground, Collins said.

" 'It is a less-lethal option and decreases the risks of injury to both the police and to suspects,' said Const. Chris Bracken. 'This is not a replacement for lethal force, but it can be used in violent confrontations.' "

"It's expensive - at $700-$800 a piece, and, according to some experts, it's less effective on those accustomed to working with electricity - people such as technicians and electricians."

"For weeks, Mayor Street has been touting Operation Safe Streets, his anti-drug program, in neighborhood rallies across the city."

"Yesterday, Street conceded that some of the rosy crime statistics that he's been bragging about at those rallies are false."

"On Wednesday, Street said that drug-related homicides between May 1 when the program started and mid-September had dropped to just nine this year, compared to 51 for the same period last year when there was no Safe Streets initiative." ...

"When the Daily News first asked for supporting data, Keel produced a chart from Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson that showed drug-related homicides between May 1 and Oct. 9 going in the opposite direction - 46 for this year and 45 for last year."

This editorial on WorldNetDaily.com is pushing FOR gun registration -- it comes from Ellen Ratner, who dubs herself "Liberal and Proud".
-------
"No, it's not an exploding volcano or shifting tectonic plates. It's the dreaded SLIPPERY SLOPE!"

"At the bottom of that slope is gun registration and confiscation, taking away everybody's SUVs, limits on CEO compensation, estate taxes, in short, pure, unadulterated fascism. The American Reich. The British are coming!"

"I say, poppycock! Early in the last century, the United States Supreme Court ruled that nobody had the right to yell, 'Fire!' in a crowded movie theater. But somehow, free speech in this country hasn't been affected a bit. As a society, I think we're mature enough to tolerate a few commonsense regulations without turning over the shebang to the Brownshirts." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. John Stuart Mills
