CO: Rick Stanley arrested at gunpoint in Denver!
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"This is a notification that Rick Stanley was arrested today, at gunpoint, by at least 30 Denver police, SWAT, and FBI agents. This occurred at approximately 12 pm Saturday 10/18/03. He is currently being held at Denver County Jail without bond and will probably be transferred to Thornton or Adams County Jail within the next 24 hours."

"This is not a militia alert, because it does not meet the criteria for a militia action. Any supporters that feel they can help in Rick's case in some way should proceed on an individual basis, guided by their own conscience. I will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available."
 

Pro-gun Jews need to be heard!

"Why in God’s name do Jews support gun control? Do they fail to understand the nature of Hitler’s 1938 Nazi Gun Control Act, imported from Germany by Democrat Senator Thomas Dodd to become the 1968 US Gun Control Act? Are they unfamiliar with the fact that barricaded Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, armed with only ten handguns, held off the entire SS? It took the regular German Army to overcome them! Shades of Waco, no? Why do such Jews put their lives and the lives of their loved ones so precariously in the hands of the state?"

"The attacks on our World Trade Center have brought unimaginable grief to thousands of American families. They have also ignited a keen awareness of our vulnerability. And, the dereliction of federal government has become evident by its inability or refusal to provide adequate nationwide defenses from foreign aggression. Whether the appropriate charge is criminal negligence or high treason, there is no question that the people have been betrayed. However, individual security is not the constitutional responsibility of government. More than one judicial decision will confirm such a statement. In other words, it is you, the individual that is obliged to make provisions for your own safety by adhering to the First Law of Nature. You must respond to this fundamental law, or perish. I recognize that this is harsh news for the politically correct sensibilities of most Americans, but this revelation is a simple fact of life. Self-defense is the natural and honorable stance that we must all promote. Without decisive steps to defend self and family, 'security' is only a word."

"I'm not a big believer in conspiracy theories, but facts are facts, and the fact is the National Rifle Association is out to get me. This is not a matter of speculation. There are no anonymous sources involved. This is solid information based on documentation contained on the gun lobby's Web site. The NRA wants to ruin my reputation, ruin my career, ruin my life."

"But while many of the celebs are proud of their anti-gun stance, insurance company Geico was so upset by its inclusion that it wrote to NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre, begging to be taken off the list."

" 'The NRA has long prided itself on 'setting the record straight' when it comes to addressing issues of critical importance to the NRA. Well, here's a chance to set the record straight as to Geico Corporation's alleged position on gun issues,' the letter states."

"For the record, Geico Corporation takes no position whatsoever on gun ownership. It makes no difference to Geico Corporation whether or not a policyholder owns a gun or guns. We just want to be the best auto insurer of the best policyholders in the USA."

What's behind gun hatred? (Letter)

"Shame on Bob Herbert, The New York Times, and any other publication that printed this reproachful nonsense. Herbert could have said in one sentence what his 16 paragraphs of unprecedented ignorance attempted to articulate by saying: 'I hate guns.' "

"I can't help but question the motive and integrity of Mr. Herbert and his counterparts within the anti-Constitution lobby. If Mr. Hebert truly believes that banning guns will somehow stop the 'over 1 million deaths' caused by guns between 1968-2001 (a number he failed to provide a source for); one should expect similar passion for laws that would prohibit illicit drugs, thus ensuring a quick and painless end to addiction and drug-related violence."

"Our 'black leadership' argues that we, a spiritual and moral people, cannot responsibly possess weapons. But, for the reasons cited previously, disarming America is not in our best interests. Total defenselessness invites continued government excesses and criminal victimization. Government does not exist to guarantee total security of every person. Until help arrives, only the individual can act in his own best interest. At the same time, only an unjust government need fear the people and their arms."

"...The danger to our beloved country is real and immediate. All you need to do is read the history (don’t read a schoolbook - buy a real book) of the past 150 years to see that there is something very sinister at work here. Laws have become ever more oppressive. Officer Friendly on the street corner has been replaced by Officer Decidedly Unfriendly in ski mask, flak jacket and riot helmet. Protesters may now be labeled 'domestic terrorists' and jailed indefinitely without charge, without trial, and without access to family or lawyers.

"It was disturbing to read that Salt Lake City Police Chief Rick Dinse has joined the board of the Gun Violence Prevention Center of Utah. GVPC's claim that they are not anti-gun is disingenuous. Their positions on numerous issues infringe on the rights of law-abiding gun owners and do nothing to decrease gun violence."

"GVPC supports restricting the rights of right-to-carry permit holders, even though studies show that allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons actually deters violent crime. Furthermore, GVPC advocates banning semi-automatic firearms, even though three congressionally mandated Urban Institute studies have proved that banning these firearms has no effect on public safety." ...

"Because poaching violations run the gamut from violating daily hunting hours to road poaching with spotlights to commercial poaching for deer heads, it's difficult to gauge how big a threat the practice is, said Terry Roberson, Ozarks protection field chief with the conservation department."

It turned out to be a toy, but it caused a lock down at the school. Police surrounded the building while teachers, students and parents there for conferences were all stuck inside."

"Police got a report of two people entering the school, one of them with a gun. Lt. Michelle Lajoye-Young told FOX 17 News the two did not have any criminal plans."

" 'It seemed just to be a naïve thing these kids did. They had the toy gun they did not present with any ill intent at all. It did not appear they understood the seriousness of the thing that they did,' Lt. Lajoye-Young."

And since they didn't have the intent to do any harm, the mens rea criterion wasn't present in this "crime." But likely, thanks to "zero sense... um... tolerance" policies, these kids will probably be punished for their misdeeds.

"THE ESCAPEES STINK to high heaven, but that is the least of Weaver’s complaints. They have slaughtered dozens of his ducks and chickens, feasted on fingerling salmon in his creek and had the temerity to bite his dog in the throat. One of them leaped out of the shadows and scratched his arm. 'For the size of the animal, I have never seen such a killer,' said Weaver, 48, a laid-off Boeing worker who now works as a fishing guide. 'They are brutal little guys. "

Police say a 6-year-old boy took a pistol and ammunition to his Northside elementary school last week.

The boy told investigators he took the gun he found in the hood of his uncle's jacket because he was afraid his uncle might hurt someone with it. A fellow student at Garden City Elementary School told a teacher's aide about the gun, and the boy was detained.

Police want to find out more before deciding whether to charge the 6-year-old with carrying a concealed weapon.

Garden City principal Elizabeth Wierda told Channel 4 that a note about what happened was sent home to parents, and teachers in every third through fifth grade classroom discussed the incident with their students.
