"Leaving aside the issue of the BBC sticking their fat noses where they don't belong, it became clearer than ever to me just how little people in Britain (and more than a few in Europe) seem to understand the principles of American government. Let me illustrate with just a few examples....

"Those who favor a ban on civilian possession of handguns have remained constant over the past several years, at between 32 and 38 percent, compared to between 59 and 65 percent opposed. Currently, 32 percent are in favor of a ban, while 65 percent oppose it – about the same as in August 2000, said Gallup analysts." ...

The U.S. Marine Corps represents the best marksmanship techniques and philosophy of any branch of the U.S. armed services. Here are the safety rules, which govern Marines in the handling of all firearms. These rules are universal and should be applied by any handler of firearms.
Treat every weapon as if it was loaded.
Never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot.
Keep your finger off the trigger until you intend to fire.
Keep your weapon on safe, until you intend to fire.
 

Mexican Leader's Hypocrisy is Right on the Surface

ORIGINAL TITLE: Mexico asks California gov. to intercede for young "terrorist"
-------
FULL TEXT BELOW...
-------
"Mexico's national ombudsman has asked California Gov. Gray Davis to intercede for a Mexican-American child threatened with expulsion from a Los Angeles area school as a 'potential terrorist' after drawing pictures of planes and guns."

"Jose Luis Soberanes sent a letter to Davis asking the governor to ensure that 10-year-old Jesus Corono, who was born in the United States, be allowed to continue attending an elementary school in Fillmore, California."

"The ombudsman also sent a letter to the boy's parents offering support and expressing a desire to travel to Fillmore to familiarize himself with the circumstances surrounding the incident."

"Soberanes said that fundamental human rights transcend borders, especially in the case of a child."

"In the letter to Davis, the ombudsman said the boy's drawings of guns and warplanes had nothing to do with 'the reprehensible terrorist threat that is not only gripping the territory and the citizens of the United States, but the whole world.' Soberanes called Corona's threatened expulsion a violation of the rights of Mexican immigrants 'for the mere fact of being different.' "

QUESTIONS FOR MEXICAN LEADERSHIP, AND ESPECIALLY FOR MR. SOBERANES...

How long did Thomas Lamar Bean spend in a Mexican prison for having accidentally brought a box of ammunition into your country?

Are you aware that he still hasn't managed to regain his rights here in America?

Any sane person should agree that a child should not be expelled for school for drawing a picture. But leaders in Mexico are hardly in a position to label punishment across the border as excessive while they systematically ruin people's lives over innocent mistakes.

Sporting shooters' groups are prepared to work with the Federal Government to secure tighter semi-automatic handgun controls after the Monash shootings.

The government has proposed that semi-automatic handguns available to sporting shooters be restricted to those types used at Olympic, Commonwealth Games and world championship levels of competition.

The president of Pistol Australia, David Jones, said that under the proposal sporting shooters would still be able to use some semi-automatic handguns.

"Semi-automatic pistols would be anything that is a target style-pistol," he said. "The thing is, there are a number of pistols that fall into that category and there are the same amount that don't fall into that category." ...

I do not like our invasions of other countries in which our people are put at risk while those supposedly in service to the people instead serve only to increase their own coffers and satisfy their lust for power.

Alas, the item they are recycling is the failed foreign policy of 40 years ago, with the modest difference that this time there is no suggestion that we are defending a pro-freedom small country under attack by foreign neighbors. This time, there can be no doubt that we have decided to launch a war of aggression against a country that is not visibly attacking us." ...

Abraham Lincoln once said, "A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principle upon which our government was founded." Marijuana is a burning issue in society. ... Studying this topic can help make one aware of the political and cultural aspects of this issue. In deciding whether the prohibition of marijuana is worth the effort to ban the substance, history, health, and social aspects of the substance must be factored in.
 

THE DC SNIPER: UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

"With the arrest Thursday of a 42-year-old black Gulf War veteran, John Allen Williams, and his 17-year-old stepson, John Lee Malvo, officials in Washington and Maryland are now declaring the DC sniper case solved. I’m not so sure. After weeks of perfectly executed sniper attacks and undetected escapes, it is inconsistent that the presumed sniper should suddenly start leaving a amateurish trail of notes on the ground and having conversations with priests and police, as if he were trying to get caught. In addition, the two were arrested after having been discovered fast asleep at a highway rest stop in plain sight of other traffic – not characteristic of the kind of crafty planning and evasion involved in the sniping operations." ...

Blog, by Eugen Volokh, criticizing Frank Rich's slur against Charlton Heston and gun owners -

"Is Rich calling for broader restrictions? Bans on rifles, perhaps? Well, the funny thing is that Rich doesn't tell us. If he had, then readers could have evaluated his proposal, and considered the arguments that he would have had to give in favor of it. But he didn't. All he did do is impugn the character of those who disagree with him on this issue."

Australia: "sick and tired of paying the price for criminal misuse of firearms."

FULL TEXT BELOW. ORIGINAL TITLE: "Springborg backs national approach to gun offences"
-------
The Queensland Opposition says legitimate gun owners are sick and tired of paying the price for criminal misuse of firearms.

State and federal governments are planning another crackdown on guns, after a fatal shooting at Melbourne's Monash University last week.

Queensland's Shadow Attorney-General, Lawrence Springborg, says law-abiding gun owners already do the right thing but convicted armed robbers sometimes do not spend a night in jail.

Mr Springborg has written to the Prime Minister, suggesting mandatory minimum sentences across Australia for firearm offences.

"What I'm finding amongst legitimate firearm users is they're asking the very valid question, how come every time we have one of these extraordinarily tragic events mostly involving unlicensed shooters with illegal firearms, that the laws are tightened," he said.

"It makes it more and more difficult for legitimate users."
