Animal rights activists get hunting licenses for protest

MONROE -- Kathy Woods of Tacoma never expected to buy a hunting license, much less tote a shotgun to a popular duck hunting area.

Of course, she never took aim at any ducks. And, as it turned out, there were practically no ducks to aim at.

Woods was among about half a dozen protesters who fired at random to scare ducks away from real hunters Saturday morning at the Crescent Lake Wildlife Area south of town.

TOY guns which fire projectiles with enough force to blind children have been recalled from sale.

"Few things could be more horrific than a child losing an eye," he said.

The Reject Shop has removed all these items from its stores, but there are still thousands in NSW homes.

While there have been no known injuries caused by the toys in NSW, the potential that some child could be injured is unacceptable.

"The guns were discovered after routine government checks of toy stores."

"Davis [the IRS agent] then grabbed the chair and hit Nicholson [the taxpayer] in the groin and legs."

"they tried to report the incident to the U.S. attorney's office, as well as the FBI, but both Justice Department entities declined to take their report."

"if I would have assaulted the IRS agent, I would be sitting in jail right now," Nicholson said, "but because the IRS agent is the one who assaulted me, [the police] only took a statement and let him go."

6th Letter on page

"Man's inhumanity to man is of man's making and has nothing to do with God and his power over the universe.

He will not protect us from one another. We must do that.

When we face enemies, we must deal with them and not involve God in what man has brought upon himself."

"My question to Mr. Ridge, Attorney General Ashcroft, and President Bush is, if it is truly "Homeland Security" you seek, why have we yet to see a moratorium on infringing gun laws? Why do states like California continue to pass and sign unnoticed laws that further infringe on the second and fourteenth amendments of the citizens of that state?" --Gene Whitehead, Founder/Chairman, American Sons of Liberty

Civil libertarians worry that new security laws will trample on rights

While America is engaged in a war to preserve and defend freedom, civil libertarians say recent votes in Congress leave a bit less freedom for which to fight.

Bills hastily passed recently may do little to curb terrorism on American soil, they say, and do much to open the door to further government intrusion into the private lives of honest Americans.

“The legislation gives the government sweeping new power to infringe on the freedom and privacy of everybody.”

MOSCOW — The U.S.-led international coalition against terror must become a coalition for a new and fair world order if it is to succeed, former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev said in an interview. The U.N. Security Council, he added, should take the initiative in developing corresponding programs.

Congressional negotiators balked at a White House proposal that would give the president new powers to keep the government open if Congress could not meet because of a crisis. Scholars say it would be controversial, if not unconstitutional, for Congress to delegate its spending authority to the president.

"We were willing to give some short-term authority, but the Bush proposal was very different from what had been discussed on the phone."

Ellison, the chairman and chief executive officer of Oracle, said last week that he had met recently with Attorney General John Ashcroft and officials at the CIA and FBI in Washington DC, to discuss the idea.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), has endorsed it; tech executives have jumped on board and some prominent civil libertarians have said the idea is worth pursuing.

The idea of a national ID card has been debated since the 1930s.

"There are those within our own government who would use the current state of affairs to pass laws that infringe upon our long cherished civil liberties.

These proposed laws are not new ideas, recently conceived as a means to prevent other horrific acts against our nation. They are the same ideas that have been put forward in the past, only to be defeated. Now some would use the current situation as a pretext for finally achieving their goals." --RUSS KEVIN CHILDERS

Allow me to repeat myself: Despite being a strong supporter of civil liberties, I'm not afraid of Big Brother. Technology has pretty much caught up with author George Orwell's dark vision of Big Brother, the insidious, all-seeing eye of continuous electronic government surveillance depicted in his classic novel 1984.

A revamped bill that would allow most Ohioans to carry hidden guns cleared one hurdle with its approval by a House subcommittee. The bill — which still faces a potential veto by Gov. Bob Taft — was passed on a 4-1 vote.

The bill would require sheriffs to issue gun permits. Among the requirements, Ohioans must complete a criminal background check and a safety training course. The bill would leave areas such as schools and courthouses off-limits.

The New Mexico Supreme Court has denied review of a July 27 decision by the New Mexico Court of Appeals, which ruled that Bryco Arms, a major handgun maker located in Southern California, and B.L. Jennings, Inc., its Nevada distributor, each have a duty to make the handguns they make and sell safe from foreseeable misuse by minors. The October 19 Supreme Court ruling clears the way for the case to go to trial.

The question remains, will the NRA help mobilize legislation that serves to benefit the greater good?" --Catherine Granicz, member of Million Mom March/North Carolinians against Gun Violence of WNC

Beginning Nov. 12, the county prosecutor's office will begin referring more gun cases for federal prosecution under a plan called the "Flint Gun Project".

Taking more cases through federal courts should result in stiffer prison sentences, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert W. Haviland said. Crimes that might only lead to probation in state courts can result in upwards of 10 years in prison when tried on the federal level.

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Chairman Ann Brown, one of the remaining holdovers from the Clinton Administration, has chosen to step down from her position, but not before attempting a last-minute attack on air rifles. Her spurious "defect" claim is so broad that it could not only affect virtually every air rifle, but it could also be used in future reckless lawsuits against firearm manufacturers—exactly what some consider to be the true goal of Brown's effort.
