A Fullerton-based pro-gun "lobby" has rented 300 billboards across California in a "controversial" campaign pushing its belief that a "heavily armed" populace is a safer populace.

The billboards, which started going up Oct. 1, carry a photo of a multiethnic group of about 20 smiling people and the slogan: "Society is safer when criminals don't know who's armed."

Here is an excellent description of "global governance," directly from an official of the United Nations. It was delivered at a seminar at the University of Colorado on April 7, 2001. It describes in detail the "obstacles" to global governance presented by the "nation state." It describes how nation states are to be "rehabilitated" to become administrative units of the United Naitons. It describes how environmental NGOs are "vital" to bringing about this change in the function of nation states.

"U.S. Attorney Tom Wales was willing to be a public face on a hot-button issue that frequently put him at odds with the National Rifle Association, an organization he has repeatedly referred to as "anti-government," "anti-Constitution" and "essentially, an anarchist institution."

"The NRA is no longer the NRA of our parents and grandparents," he said at a public forum last October. "It refuses to accept the legitimate authority of the U.S. government."

Army Specialist New's military appeal came to an end Oct 9, when the Supreme Court declined to look at his case. "Although we are disappointed in the Court's ruling, this is not the end of the legal road for Michael New," Herbert W. Titus, New's lead counsel stated. "Not only is it important to note that the Supreme Court's denial is not a ruling on the merits of New's claims, but the Court's ruling does not preclude New from pursuing legal remedies in the federal courts.

"Section 1062 is a dream come true for the gun control movement. There is no compelling public safety interest driving this legislation. Its only goal is to remove lawfully owned firearms from the hands of law-abiding citizens. The fact that this demilitarization requirement was slipped into the military appropriations bill at this critical time in our nation's history is quite disturbing..." --ISRA President Richard Pearson

A state appellate court has ruled that a Florida law banning the sale of guns to "any person of unsound mind" is not unconstitutionally vague.

"The statute gives notice that it is a violation to ... sell a dangerous weapon, such as a firearm, to a person like Lofton who, because of his mental retardation, is incapable of caring for himself," the court wrote. It said whether the pawnshop knew or should have known whether Lofton was retarded was irrelevant in this case.

Prove Commitment to Peace: Post 'No Guns Here' on Lawn

"The message which an uninvited guest delivers when they break into our home is that our social responsibilities need tending to. Unfortunately, at this point the crisis has already arrived. If we silence forever that intruder with a bullet because we were "left with no choice," the facade of security bestowed by the firearm reveals a grave powerlessness: victimized once by the intruder, and again by being backed into the position of taking the life of another."

We've all noticed a growing military presence in civilian life. And we're likely to see a lot more of it in the days to come. But ... The separation of the military from involvement in civilian affairs "is such a fundamental principle that if it needs be modified, it needs to be done with extreme caution and considerable safeguards ... We don't want to live in a military state." --Steven Aftergood, Federation of American Scientists (FAS.org) Director of the Project on Government Secrecy

Apocryphal tales of crazed hunters and the hazards of hanging laundry persist in some non-hunting circles. But they are totally unfounded. Non-hunters and hunters alike face far greater risks from deer and elk on the roads than from stray bullets during the season of the Hunter's Moon.

"'Perhaps if those representing Mr Martin at the trial had been less driven by tactics and had concentrated more on presenting their client's own account of what happened, the outcome might have been different,' said Mr Wolkind."

"The controversial case began after Martin, 56, shot 16-year-old Fred Barras with a pump-action shotgun after the boy tried to burgle his remote farmhouse in 1999."

He has already served two years.
