"The report estimated that 815,000 people killed themselves in 2000 - making suicide the No. 13 cause of death worldwide."

"The highest suicide rates were in eastern Europe, while the lowest were in Latin America."

"Among the Inuit people in northern Canada, for example, there were overall suicide rates of between 60 and 75 per 100,000 people, compared with 15 per 100,000 for the general population, it said."
-------
No correlation between guns and suicide here, but worth tucking away for when the anti-gunners try to blame suicides on firearms.

Letter to the editor:

"I have begun to wonder if Blagojevich is having an identity crisis. He comes to Southern Illinois and touts his support for gun owners, but fails to mention his support for partial-birth abortion and homosexual marriages. Two days later, I read his remarks to a crowd in Chicago touting his blatant opposition to gun ownership and praising his blemish-free, pro-abortion record."

"I hope that people will take the initiative to educate themselves before the election."

Rita Donaldson says she has "wanted to see a woman as governor for a long time," but questions whether Townsend is qualified because "whenever she speaks, she does not inspire confidence."

But she ...questions Erlich's recent statements about wanting to review the effectiveness of some gun laws. "I don't like his gun stand," she says.
-------
Erlich merely said he'd like to review a couple of laws to determine their effectiveness.

"This week I’ll be taking aim at a website. Yes, I realize that generally websites come and go, and many gun control 'organizations' are usually ephemeral flights of fancy for those with too much time on their hands and little factual information. But the reason I’d like to draw your attention to this particular website is that 'Gunguys.com' is not only a prime example of gun-control maliciousness, ignorance and disingenuousness, but also a great tool to help those who aren’t familiar with the Second Amendment rights debate to see an example of the kind of poisonous, repugnant cowards these 'it’s for the children' types really are."

He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator in a calm, soothing voice replies: "Take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."

There is a silence, then a shot is heard.

PA newspaper columnist responds positively to libertarian candidate's suggestion for preventing future rape attacks.
-------
"Preventing rape is not funny. At least it shouldn't be. Somebody should have mentioned that to the audience before the recent first televised gubernatorial debate at Penn State. Candidates were asked what they would do to encourage rape victims to report the crime to authorities. One of the four gave an answer few were expecting. The audience and the other three thought he was joking." ...

"Libertarian candidate Ken Krawchuck must have had people like that in mind when he answered, 'It's obvious that a handgun is a girl's best friend.' After the laughter subsided, Green Party candidate Michael Morrill said it's insane to advise a woman to combat violence with violence."

"Should she combat violence with submission?"

Like it or not, the Republicans have successfully marketed themselves as being more libertarian - at least on economic issues - than the Democrats. Some of the RP politicians even follow through on this marketing position, albeit much less well than we Libertarians would like."
