Banning "Terrorist Specials"?

"So what were the effects of the law? Actually, none whatsoever, it had nothing to do with Glocks. The minimum metal requirement was set at 3.2 ounces, less than a fifth of the metal contained in the then-controversial Glocks and significantly less than in any other gun. No congressional testimony linked the standard with any potential security breaches."

"The standard was picked precisely because it did not affect anything. No gun maker was hurt, while politicians pretended they were 'doing something.' Glocks are now-a-days common and one of the favorite pistols of American police officers. They are reliable and lightweight."
 

Ptooey! on the 2nd Amendment
Submitted by: Robert Lewis

"So, lest any of us put the cart before the horse, it’s not the 2nd amendment that gives us a right to own weapons and be proficient in their use – our status as human beings gives us the right to own guns. Rather, the amendment should merely encourage gun ownership and prohibit interference with it. Put another way, the only good the 2nd amendment could ever do is win lawsuits on behalf of you and me whenever the government tries to pass a gun law. And since the government routinely passes gun laws, the 2nd amendment isn’t good for much. Rely instead on your natural right to self-defense, and when California (or whoever) tells you to start registering weapons so they can come back in two years and confiscate them, the first thing to do is to go live somewhere else."

His answer to our eroding right to bear arms is to run away. I've never heard of this solution working! And what happens once each and every state becomes an oppressive tyranny like California or New York? Then what?
 

AK-47 designer: Guns 'like my children'

" 'A lot of people ask me how I sleep, because of all the people who've been killed with my guns,' said Mikhail Kalashnikov, 84, the designer of the renowned AK-47 assault rifle."

"His light, inexpensive, virtually indestructible guns - 'they're like my children,' he said - long have been the weapons of choice for communist armies from Vietnam to China to Angola to Cuba. They've also been used by all manner of terrorists, freedom fighters, guerrillas and gangsters." ...

"'But it's not the designer's fault or the weapon's fault when terrible things happen - it's the politicians... It's because the politicians are unable to reach peaceful agreements. I must say I sleep quite soundly."

8. Always carry your firearm with the safety in the "on" position.

9. Have a plan when with companions and know where they will be hunting.

10. Do not use your rifle or shotgun scope as binoculars -- you could end up pointing your gun at another hunter.
 

F.B.I.'s Reach Into Records Is Set to Grow

"A little-noticed measure approved by both the House and Senate would significantly expand the F.B.I.'s power to demand financial records, without a judge's approval, from car dealers, travel agents, pawnbrokers and many other businesses, officials said on Tuesday."

"Traditional financial institutions like banks and credit unions are frequently subject to administrative subpoenas from the Federal Bureau of Investigation to produce financial records in terrorism and espionage investigations. Such subpoenas, which are known as national security letters, do not require the bureau to seek a judge's approval before issuing them."

"The measure now awaiting final approval in Congress would significantly broaden the law to include securities dealers, currency exchanges, car dealers, travel agencies, post offices, casinos, pawnbrokers and any other institution doing cash transactions with 'a high degree of usefulness in criminal, tax or regulatory matters.' "

"Former Gov. Jim Gilmore challenged Virginians on Wednesday to think about the values of privacy and freedom while pondering how governments should prepare to protect security in the wake of the terrorist attacks on this state and nation two years ago."

"Addressing a University of Virginia forum on governmental responses to terrorism, Gilmore quoted Benjamin Franklin to the effect that 'he who would sacrifice freedom in the name of security is entitled to neither freedom nor security.' "

"Without criticizing President Bush, Gilmore said he is uneasy with a few of his administration’s anti-terrorism efforts, including some provisions of the USA Patriot Act and the Pentagon’s domestic spying program, dubbed the 'Total Information Awareness Program.' "
 

Ending Judicial Tyranny: Don't Count on the Republicans

"When Democrats like Bill Clinton nominate slime to the federal bench, it is the duty of Republican Senators to oppose such nominations. However, during the six of the eight Clinton years in which Republicans held a Senate majority, judicial nominations were well nigh a non-issue. While no spots on the Supreme Court came open, many district and appellate positions came open and were filled with nary a whimper from Republicans. These Republicans who rubber-stamped Clinton’s nominees are no better than Clinton himself."

"The new slavery knows no boundaries such as race, creed, color, religious beliefs or sexual preference. It is the one system where we all are truly equal. The new slavery touches every corner of our lives. From the cradle to the grave we are tethered by the chains of regulation forged by our own government. A two-party system has bred a tremendous growth in centralized government power, especially over the last seventy-five years. Their principle tool for creating our shackles is an oxymoron they call 'controlled choice.' "

"...peace activists and law enforcement officials agree that the monitoring of anti-war groups and other activists has stepped up since the terrorist attacks of two years ago."

"Attorney General John Ashcroft recently issued new guidelines on anti-terrorism investigations that critics contend will give the FBI more leeway in spying on anti-war groups and others."

"Justice Department officials say the guidelines, by strengthening the FBI's ability to look for evidence of possible terrorist planning, help law enforcement protect Americans."

"But the move comes on the heels of several incidents in the past year that have made civil libertarians wary of renewed government spying."

"You can argue the merits of this case, but look where the argument leads. Your dog is shot. You take a stick to confront the guy you think shot him. You don't even make it inside the house. And unless the neighbor is blind, he knows you've got a stick and he's got a shotgun."

"He pulls the trigger and walks away free." ...

"It offers the shooter immunity from prosecution and immunity from civil action."

"But the sad case of Richard Hammock, whose wife prepares to bury him, does not immunize the rest of us from asking ourselves exactly what kind of day we've made."

Women at the University of Iowa now have some tools to help them fight violence.

The Alpha Phi sorority hosted an event Wednesday night called "Girls Fight Back." The program serves to teach women self-defense skills.

Anna Larson thinks these are important tools for anyone, anywhere. She told TV9, “We want everyone to be aware that you need to be careful what you're doing. Watch out for your friends, watch out for your sorority sisters and any body that you’re with. Just make sure that everyone stays safe."

Those attending learned the best way for a woman to prevent an attack is to become a "bad victim”, by yelling and being aware of her surroundings.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.... We've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of government himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price. — Ronald Reagan
