"Candidate Jeb Bush promised voters in 1998 that he would tackle crime with tougher sentences for gun-toting criminals. Four years later, Gov. Jeb Bush is back on the trail and boasting about his "10-20-Life" law and the lowest Florida crime rate in 29 years."

"What Bush's figures don't reflect is that, while the crime rate has hit a historic low, the overall number of violent crimes is on the rise -- and violent gun crimes lead the pack."

"According to the latest figures from Bush's own Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the number of violent crimes rose 1.8 percent from 2000 to 2001. Crimes committed with guns increased 5.6 percent." ...

"We already put some restraints on weapons despite the 2nd Amendment guarantee to possess them. We require background checks, registration of guns and waiting periods between purchase and possession. Until we know the identity of the killer... we can't say for sure if these checks and balances have been adhered to or failed in their intention to protect citizens from people who have proven - by virtue of prior criminal activity - that they can't handle the privilege of owning weapons." ...

CONSIDER...

With phrases like "the privilege of owning weapons," while this writer may mean well, he or she is encouraged to go back to the Bill of Rights and search for the word "privilege" in the Second Amendment. Clue: it's not there. The word is "right", and the adjective to accurately describe the "right of the people to keep and bear arms" is "unalienable". That means it preexists government's blessing, supercedes government's scorn, overrides government's edicts and will eventually be put to unfortunate use if government infringes too far for too long.

If you'd like to assist the editor of Utah's "The Spectrum" in taking wellmeaning and turning it into accurate representation of the right of the people to keep and bear arms, here is where to send your comments and letters: opinions@thespectrum.com.

ORIGINAL TITLE: "Frightful risk for medical pot users"
-------
"Four gunmen dressed as FBI and ATF agents forced their way into a family's rural Lotus home last week and took 20 plants -- which the homeowner told authorities were for medicinal purposes -- and about $300 in cash..."

" 'If you grow pot, you are running a risk of getting robbed. It's that simple,' said Dan Minter, a Sacramento County sheriff's robbery detective."
-------
And in California, where everyone but the criminal is disarmed, you're at the mercy of the robber unless you stay in your home and arm yourself.

And if the robbers don't get you, the anti-medical-relief DEA thieves who ignore the public's will to legalize medicinal use of marijuana probably will.

"A ballistic network formulated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement says markings on bullets fired from a weapon are unique to the gun they were shot from. By using computers, analysts can compare bullets and cartridges to fired debris on file in a database. They can also find if a bullet has ever been fired from a particular gun in the past." -- Yeah, until the firing pin is replaced, until the gun is re-barreled or until wear and tear changes the markings!

"This is dedicated to those who never knew."

"To the uncivil civil servant: You never knew. To the driver who cut me off in traffic: You never knew. To the neighbor whose dog defecated on my lawn, to the co-worker who disagreed with me, to the slothful restaurant waiter:"

"None of you ever knew. To the doctor who kept me waiting, to his assistant who did not care, and to the pharmacist who did not have time to answer my question: Each of you never knew."

"You never knew I am one of the many Virginians who possesses a concealed-carry permit (CCP) and carries a firearm for self-defense."

"Contrary to the liberal mindset, I did not fly off the handle in a moment of rage when encountering unpleasant experiences that are part of everyday life. I did not shoot you, brandish my weapon, or lose my temper. Those who obtain a CCP and carry a firearm recognize their responsibility and do not have a "Wild West" mentality, as some would suggest."

"Finally, to the thug who plans on harming me and my family: You don't know. Clayton W. Rhoades. Richmond."

Very typical mainstream media spin on why a militia is bad, why guns are bad, etc. Points out wacky beliefs like this:

"Among its beliefs, the society and the 'Citizens Rule Book' say jurors don't have to follow a judge's instructions and can decide the law for themselves."

QUESTION...

Do any mainstream mediawhore "journalists" ever actually consider studying why America's founders set up the many protections they did? Or do they simply find worshipping illegitimate government "authority" a preferable investment of time?

"Gun-control opportunists have wasted no time exploiting the serial sniper shootings as if on a mission to undermine those who insist they be taken seriously."

"Sarah Brady, bless her misguided heart, issued a statement on the sniper shootings, which unmistakably implied that tighter federal gun-control laws could have prevented the killings ("sensible gun laws can ... prevent gun violence"). She said that according to police, the shooter could be using one of four possible firearms, three of which are assault rifles – then warned that the federal assault-weapons ban expires September 2004."

OH: 8 Ohio Police Officers Face Charges in Death of Prisoner

"Police have filed internal charges against eight current and former officers stemming from the November 2000 death of a black man who died while in police custody."

"City Manager Valerie Lemmie said Monday she called for hearings to determine whether any of the officers should be disciplined for the death of Roger Owensby Jr., 29. Punishment could range from no action to firing. Lemmie will make the final decision on discipline..."

"The officers are accused of violating police department policies governing use of force and securing and handling of prisoners. The charges also include neglect of duty, dishonesty and failure of good behavior."

CONSIDER...

If armed public servants are guilty of all of these things and their guilt led to the death of a prisoner, how is "firing" a fair or righteous punishment?

When a citizen screws up and the screwup, even if unintentional, ends in the death of a hired government employee, prison is virtually unavoidable.

Equal protection of the law was enacted for several reasons, including to assure that the people were treated as harshly or leniently as the government employees whose paychecks they fund.

"Jamaica (Reuters) -- Tivoli Gardens is one of the toughest neighborhoods in one of the toughest cities in the Caribbean, a slum town with rutted streets and tin shack homes and a police station pocked by bullet holes."

"Heavily armed gang members lurk behind the crumbling walls of this West Kingston village. Piles of garbage line the streets. The idle jobless loiter everywhere."

Armed thugs rule in Jamaica? Where the general populace has been unilaterally disarmed? Gee, how can THAT be?

"House Judiciary Committee Chairman F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr., (R-Wis.) today released documents showing the State of Maryland refused to provide for almost six months earlier this year criminal records for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) that operates the FBI background checks mandated by the Brady Act.

"Louis Freeh's opening statement this past week in front of the Joint Committee was a prime example of the abuse of time spent in words that have no meaning or purpose except to put the insomniac among us into a long-needed rest. As he droned on and on couching out-right lies among a forest of purposeless rhetoric, I found myself looking for my TV brick. And yet, he was patiently heard….ad-nauseum." ...

"To them, the word 'sniper' is a badge of honor and a hallmark of skill. And to them, whoever has been terrorizing the Washington area for the last two weeks is not worthy of the name."
-------
It's about time the news talked to some real snipers!

"So far as I am aware, the Muslim world does not yet have access to a sophisticated “Special Atomic Demolition Munitions [SADM]”, one of which certainly went critical in a sewer more than four feet below the road bed outside the Sari club." ...

"Bearing in mind the fact that Bali is a hugely popular destination for Australians, many of whom were killed in the blast, the attack seems aimed at shifting Australian public opinion towards an attack on Iraq, or even an attack on Islam in general." ...
