Councilman Lyle K. Frehafer said the department has on hand "more than 3,000 rounds" of ammunition... "plus shotgun rounds."

"That's more than sufficient ammunition," Frehafer said. "I think we are overboard." He suggested some of the ammunition be returned, but Police Chief William F. Clark said it was needed.

Clark defended the purchase, saying that the department uses it for mandated qualifications with firearms - members must be able to hit what they shoot at - and for practice.

After paying scant attention to the UN since he took office in January, President Bush is now paying $1.67 billion by the end of the year and pushing for the world body to take over "nation-building" once the U.S.-led military campaign against Afghanistan is finished.

This year, with a new requirement to fork over $50 [Canadian] for each gun brought in, we were detained for about 45 minutes while customs agents ran our names through some sort of security clearance and one of them had each of us open our gun cases to match serial numbers with our paperwork, as well as to actually measure our gun barrels to see if our descriptions were accurate."

LET'S LOCK AND LOAD NOW
by DAVID H. HACKWORTH

Shooting first and straight while on a battlefield or a security detail is a matter of life or death. That's why weapons training normally gets the highest priority in the U.S. military.

If you're slow on the draw, you're dead, and your side loses...

Brown was scheduled to receive the national "TOP COP" award this month for his actions during an apparent attack near Tolleson in July 2000.
However, the department recently voiced "concerns" about the incident, and the National Association of Police Organizations postponed the award until inconsistencies can be cleared up.

Robinson was arrested for possession of an "assault rifle" found in his car as he entered Giants Stadium (NJ). He said that he'd been to a shooting range last week and forgot to take the gun out of the vehicle before leaving for the game.

"How could he bring it into such a tightened security area with his wife and two daughters in the vehicle?" asks "reporter" MARK CANNIZZARO

"I have no idea why people own weapons anyway, period, end of story," former position coach Herman Edwards said.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy ... censorship. When any government, or any church, for that matter, undertakes to say to it's subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything. You cannot conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him." --Robert A. Heinlein, "Revolt in 2100" (Pg. 68-69, Baen Books paperback edition, 1999 printing)
