"A rise in serious crimes, as well as a series of incidents this year in which police officers have been killed in the line of duty, have prompted the NPA to issue guidelines that better define the circumstances in which a firearm may be used," agency officials said.

"Many observers say the move effectively relaxes the rules regarding the use of weapons by officers in self-defense."

McGreevey was the endorsed candidate (for Governor) of the Teachers' Union.

Coupled with gun control and abortion rights, McGreevey used the issue of education to portray Schundler as being out of touch with the state's mainstream values.

--And as we know, McGreevey is anti-gun. So what does that say about the "teachers' union"?

"Just as those who signed the Declaration of Independence unilaterally declared to a candid world the causes which impelled them to embark on a deadly war for their survival as a free nation, we too must confidently declare that America has a moral right to defend itself.

This means that America's defenders must fight a two-front war: a military war against Islamic terrorists (and their sponsor states) and an intellectual war against the cackling clerics of our universities." --C. Bradley Thompson
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Our safety, our liberty depends on preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the U.S. are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts - Not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution. — Abraham Lincoln
