"An 89-year-old deer hunter cannot use a gun for a year after accidentally shooting a horse that was being ridden by a 12-year-old girl in western Minnesota."

"Clinton Hurlbut, of Browns Valley, pleaded guilty Thursday to misdemeanor reckless use of a gun."

"He fired a shotgun slug from his property on Nov. 9, the opening day of deer-hunting season, at what he said he thought was a deer. The slug struck a white horse that Lindsey Duffield was riding about 200 yards away." ...

Hitting your target 200 yards away, with a shotgun slug, is pretty good shootin' -- but it's best not to shoot a horse. We don't recommend it at all.

"Det Sgt David Redfern and Det Con Heather Bossart, who had been seconded to the NCS for their 'dedication and integrity' were caught on surveillance equipment as they took cocaine."

"On another the policeman snorted cocaine with a drug dealer he had once helped to jail for six and a half years, a court was told." ...

"Jan Blaser-Upchurch, the organization's state chair, said Thursday Arizona rates a B- for its efforts to get intoxicated motorists off the roads. She said the state gets good grades for its drunken driving laws and its law enforcement programs."

"In essence, anyone who purchases a keg -- or actually the beer inside -- would have to provide identification to the retailer. That person's name would be linked to a serial number on the keg."

"The purpose, she said, is to help police if they find a keg at a party of teens they can track back who got it for them. It already is a crime to furnish alcohol to minors." ...

"Re 'Widow wins gun suit,' by Jon Burstein: Here we go again, another stupid jury fooled by money-grubbing lawyers. The argument that a manufacturer or distributor of a legal product, sold to a legal buyer, is in any way responsible for its misuse 10 years later in a criminal act is patently absurd. Yet a Palm Beach County jury has decided to ignore all reason and hold against a gun distributor for the criminal action of a teen in shooting a teacher." ...

"Despite the self-satisfaction of George W. Bush and John Ashcroft, and the somnolence of the press, there is rising resistance around the country to the serial abuses of our liberties. More Americans are becoming aware of what Wisconsin Democratic senator Russ Feingold prophesied from the Senate floor on October 11, 2001, when he was the only Senator to vote against Ashcroft's USA Patriot Act:"
"There is no doubt that if we lived in a police state, it would be easier to catch terrorists. If we lived in a country where police were allowed to search your home at any time for any reason; if we lived in a country where the government is entitled to open your mail, eavesdrop on your phone conversations, or intercept your e-mail communications; if we lived in a country where people could be held in jail indefinitely based on what they write or think, or based on mere suspicion that they are up to no good, the government would probably discover more terrorists or would-be terrorists, just as it would find more lawbreakers generally. But that wouldn't be a country in which we would want to live."
"Some of that warning has come to pass."

"The dumbest provision in the bill creating a new Department of Homeland Security is one that sets the stage for a new breed of gunslingers at 30,000 feet."

"The provision, odious even to the White House and strongly opposed by those who manage airlines, would permit firearms in the cockpits of American jetliners, even though pilots presumably would not be allowed to leave their place at the controls to conduct shootouts during a hijacking. Then why the need for a weapon in the first place?" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both. — William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)
