FBI Bullet Analyses Flawed, Imprecise

"The National Academy of Sciences has concluded that a technique the FBI has used for decades to match bullets to crimes is flawed, a position that could hand defense lawyers a new avenue of attack against the world's most famous crime lab."

"The academy's study, to be released early next month, makes about a half-dozen recommendations for changing the way the FBI matches bullets by their lead content and strongly urges bureau experts to more precisely describe the significance of their findings in court." ...

"The study's publication next month could open the door to hundreds, even thousands of appeals, and give defense lawyers in future cases new ammunition for undermining expert testimony."

"On Nov. 6, Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry attacked rival Howard Dean on the Vermont governor's questionable history on gun control." ...

"Suddenly, the silence surrounding the issue of gun control in the Democratic presidential primary had ended -- and the ongoing effort to ban assault weapons enjoyed a jolt of attention, which backers of the ban think can only be a good thing. 'I think that what these candidates are doing is elevating the issue,' said Joe Sudbay, public policy director for the Violence Policy Center in Washington, D.C., 'and that's exactly what we need.'

"It also includes multimedia displays on the various wars in which the AK-47 has played a major role, including ongoing conflicts in Africa where child soldiers sometimes carry Kalashnikovs."
 

Now, more than ever, the United States should be backing small-arms control

"A small arm is basically defined as a weapon that can be operated by one person -- anything from a six-shooter pistol to a shoulder-fired rocket. Experts at the conference estimated that there are 640 million small arms in circulation, one for every 10 people on the planet. A full two-thirds of these are in the hands of civilians, and each year such weapons kill approximately 500,000 people. (To put that number in perspective, consider that land mines kill 15,000 to 20,000 people annually.) Millions of small arms are produced and purchased every year, making it nearly impossible to reduce the global supply through confiscation and destruction."

-------
First of all, small arms haven't killed anyone.

Secondly, in the 20th century, governments killed 1.7 million of their own (disarmed) citizens a year. So which is more dangerous, small arms or governments wielding them against the disarmed?

"Smith & Wesson has created the first handgun designed to be used by babies 12 months and up, and the National Rifle Association has officially endorsed it. Despite widespread protests by parental and gun-control groups, Smith & Wesson plans to begin distributing the baby handguns by the end of the month." ...

"Heston dismissed the Brady Center's comments. 'The second amendment of the constitution clearly states that everyone has the right to bear arms, even toddlers. We're prepared to fight for that in court. As for being dangerous, that's just a myth. Guns don't kill babies. Babies kill babies.' "

"The House voted Thursday to expand the U.S. government's power to demand financial records from businesses as part of terrorism investigations, despite concerns that the measure could undermine civil liberties."

"The provision was part of a mostly secret bill authorizing 2004 intelligence programs that got final House approval in a 264-163 vote. The amount of the bill is classified, but it is believed to be about $40 billion. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Porter Goss said it is slightly more than the amount requested by President Bush."

"The Senate is expected to approve the bill soon and it will then go to Bush for his signature."
 

Tommy Franks: Martial Law Will Replace Constitution After Next Terror Attack

"Gen. Tommy Franks says that if the United States is hit with a weapon of mass destruction that inflicts large casualties, the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government." ...

"In the magazine’s December edition, the former commander of the military’s Central Command warned that if terrorists succeeded in using a weapon of mass destruction (WMD) against the U.S. or one of our allies, it would likely have catastrophic consequences for our cherished republican form of government."

"Discussing the hypothetical dangers posed to the U.S. in the wake of Sept. 11, Franks said that 'the worst thing that could happen' is if terrorists acquire and then use a biological, chemical or nuclear weapon that inflicts heavy casualties."

"If that happens, Franks said, '... the Western world, the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty we’ve seen for a couple of hundred years in this grand experiment that we call democracy.' "

"The reason the arguments sound familiar is that the BSA set the precedent for much of the PATRIOT Act, not to mention government fishing expeditions such as the Pentagon’s aborted Total Information Awareness program. The law authorized the government to require bank reports of all transactions over a dollar value set by the Treasury Department, even if there is no reason to suspect a criminal connection. For the first time, in the words of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, 'the government claim[ed] the legal right to maintain routine surveillance, without summons, subpoena, or warrant, over the details of citizens’ financial transactions.'

"So why is it the cops can come in guns a-blazin' for a bunch of 14-year-olds, but when it's an 80-year-old in an elevator, he's supposed to just lay down and die? Why does one unlicensed gun give cops the right to rummage through Mr. Campbell's junk drawers for another? The guy's 80-years-old. God bless him. He's probably got enough trouble getting in and out of bed every day. Do we honestly think he'll go postal?"

"And as for Stratford High, what gives state workers the right to throw kids against lockers and scar their fragile minds? Why, because they might have drugs on them? Well, they might have boxes of Wheat Thins, too, but you don't beat the bejeezus out of them just because you're hungry."
 

World Socialists Call for World Government

"Concluding its 22nd global congress in Sao Paulo, Brazil, last week, the Socialist International issued its Declaration calling for implementation of 'global governance,' in a program that mirrors the recommendations of the U.N.-funded Commission on Global Governance, published in 1995."

-------
In other words, the socialists are pushing for a single world government with the U.N. at the helm.

This would mean gun control on a global scale, control of education and regulatory authority over private property, just as a start.

Don't underestimate these people as simply kooks. They may be insane, but there are a lot of them. According to the Socialist International website, it is the world's largest political organization, working through more than 140 national organizations.
 

We Called Them Traitors... And Everyone Laughed

"We conservatives always knew that rank-and-file liberals, at best, are incredibly naïve. At worst, they’re scheming moochers, sucking off their hard-working countrymen. At best, we know liberal leaders are arrogant megalomaniacs, seeking power and control. At worst? They’re anti-American, bent on destroying the individual freedom and gathering power at any cost."

"We called them traitors. And everyone laughed."

"Yes, everyone laughed at us. You know, that special haughty laugh that only a sneering, smug elitist can muster when hiding their true intentions."

"But then came that Senate Intelligence Committee memo, proving Democrats were plotting to attack our own President by specifically using intelligence data and security secrets, with our troops in harms way in the middle of a war. It is time to stop the music. It is time to raise the curtain. At this point, there can be no further denials. No head-scratching introspection. No politics-as-usual shoulder shrugging."

"Democrats are traitors."

" We've profiled him on Crimestoppers, now it appears robbery and assault suspect Lewis Chandler has harassed State Street resident and senior citizen Hebron Morris for the last time."

" 'He robbed me three times, tried twice to get into our backyard,' Morris says. 'We put up fencing, barbed wire. This guy jumps over fences to get to you.' "

"Morris says on Thursday morning, Chandler appeared through one of two holes he'd cut in the garage to commit previous burglaries. Then he attacked Morris as he and his sister, Dean Alexander, were leaving the house." ...

"Across the street, First Baptist Church maintenance man Robert Wilson got wind of it and jumped into his truck. Co-workers Dennis Chism and Joe Turner started a foot chase." ...

"Mr. Morris caught up quickly. 'When I heard Robert say, you stop or I'll blow your head off, I felt much better,' Morris says, although Morris used his own shotgun to keep Chandler at bay."

"Chandler is jailed on two counts of house burglary, three strong-arm robbery counts and one armed robbery count."

"Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle this week vetoed a bill that would have permitted citizens to carry concealed weapons into most public places, including a controversial provision allowing people to go armed into the Legislature."

" 'An odd feature of the bill is that it would allow hidden guns even in the Statehouse during legislative debates,' according to a story published by Stateline.Org. That feature caused quite a stir among lawmakers, who joked about coming to work armed with sawed-off shotguns and automatic weapons."

"Suffice it to say the Badger State is a long way from Utah, where concealed-carry permits allow most any adult with no criminal record to pack where they please with few exceptions." ...

"But what happens to the people who get caught with those weapons? And in this post 9/11 era of tight security, how could they possibly think they'd get those weapons past airport screeners?"

"The decision on which court they're prosecuted in rests with the U.S. attorney's office, which reviews every airport weapons case."

"The U.S. attorney’s office has prosecuted just two airport weapons criminal cases in federal court. Those two men allegedly tried to artfully hide their weapons. All other charges have been misdemeanors, sent to Kentucky district court, where penalties are likely to be lighter."

"And police have linked the thugs to attacks in Berkshire, south Oxfordshire and Hampshire."

"Eight detectives are working on catching the gang – as well as solving another four unrelated violent robberies which have hit shops this month."

"Some have been frighteningly violent and during the raid on the One Stop Shop in The Green, Wooburn Green, on October 30, a gunman aimed a pistol at a four-year-old girl."

"At least three shopkeepers have also been viciously beaten during the raids."

"Kenzo Dix was fifteen years old when he died, unintentionally shot and killed by a fourteen year old friend with a Beretta pistol. The date was May 29, 1994."

"The friend had unloaded his father's gun and replaced it with an empty clip, but the design of the gun failed to reveal the hidden bullet in the chamber. Inexpensive and feasible safety features used by other gun manufacturers could have prevented Kenzo's death."

-------
Kenzo's death could have been prevented by following one simple rule: check the chamber to ensure it's empty and never point the gun - even if you think it's empty - at anyone you don't intend to shoot. But it always has to be the gun's fault.

"Denver District Attorney Bill Ritter made a tough but correct call in not prosecuting Westminster police officer Karl Scherck for the Sept. 22 shooting death of suspected burglar Sergio Alejandro Medrano."

"But it's significant that Ritter said the shooting wasn't justified. Which is why we find it unsettling that Scherck's boss, Westminster Police Chief Dan Montgomery hurried to pronounce the off-duty cop 'a hero in my book.' "

"The problem is that the Westminster Police Department hasn't completed its own review of the shooting, and the review panel will consist of Montgomery and three captains." ...

"Scherck, who lives near the 1400 block of South Lincoln Street in Denver, where the shooting occurred, noticed Medrano prowling around the neighborhood, where Scherck's mother also lives. The off-duty Westminster cop was on the way to his mom's house to mow her lawn when he allegedly saw Medrano standing on her property and acting suspiciously."

Oh yeah, he was supposed to wait around until this felon, who had a long criminal history, harmed his mother, right?

"Federal law enforcement officials are calling a new program to crack down on the illegal possession of guns in Vermont crime control, not gun control."

"Police said the goal of Project Safe Neighborhoods -- PSN -- is to get guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them in the first place. Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agent David Campbell said lots of guns are moving in and out of Vermont quickly. He said the weapons are used almost like a form of currency."

-------
It appears criminals know something many others do not (whether consciously or otherwise) - that our money is fiat currency. Ergo, they barter with something of tangible value.

"In 1912, the Republican Party destroyed itself when Bob Taft’s great-grandfather, William Taft, ascended to the Presidency as Theodore Roosevelt’s hand-picked successor. Taft rewarded his mentor by deserting the agreed upon platform and instead bowed to power brokers concerned more for special interest groups than for the constituency. Roosevelt, incensed at the betrayal, and determined to follow through on Taft’s broken promises, created the Bull Moose Party and ran for President. Taft chose not to aggressively campaign, but refused to support his former friend. Even Roosevelt’s formidable charisma was unable to overcome the party’s division. Woodrow Wilson was elected President, and the Republicans did not regain control of the White House for another eight years."

"Today, in Ohio, the parallels between Governor Bob Taft’s record and his family legacy are undeniable."

"We first learned of Taft's new 'concern' with HB12 in early November. His attempts to insert yet another poison pill into the bill were dashed by committee leadership, who told him they would stick to Article 19 of the rules, which authorizes conferees only to address differences between the two versions of the bill."

"Taft realized he hit a dead-end in asking the committee to break the rules. So he went to his liberal media accomplices, who were more than willing to carry the torch."

"Detective Jeffrey Hoolihan claims Harris was trying to provoke him when the director reached for a cellular phone on his duty belt the evening of Jan. 28, 2002. The safety-service director's actions were improper because Hoolihan's gun is located on the belt next to the phone, Hoolihan said, and officers are trained to never allow someone to get near their weapon."

" 'He ought to know better than to reach toward an officer's weapon,' Hoolihan said."

"A new threat from Governor Bob Taft to veto a carrying concealed weapons bill because of a permit privacy provision was met with a mixture of disbelief and defiance Thursday from supporters of the legislation who said Mr. Taft's demand was not one on which they could compromise."

"Mr. Taft's long-held position has been that he could not support a measure (HB 12) that would let law-abiding, trained Ohioans obtain permits to carry concealed weapons unless it had the endorsement of law enforcement."

"The governor for the first time added a second condition in a letter to House and Senate leaders this week in which he said a gun licensee's 'basic identifying information' including name, date of birth and county of residence should be considered public information. However, he said some other information gathered in the application process that would reflect mental illness, substance abuse or certain other conditions should be kept confidential."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
It doesn't require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires to people's minds. — Samuel Adams American Patriot
