...you ever seriously thought about dabbing on a little Hoppe's #9 before going out on a date.

...you buy some checkering tools, you checker all your gun stocks, and then start on the bedposts.

...you cannot recall how many firearms you own.

...you buy a gun that's just like that other gun you have except the barrel is 1/2" shorter (or longer)

CDC authorities and the governor of the affected state would exercise their authority using mobilized National Guard units...

Cean Whitmarsh saved a dozen lives Sept. 11 after terrorists crashed an airplane into the Pentagon, but the 1997 Irving High School graduate does not consider himself a hero.

The school thinks otherwise. Whitmarsh was honored Tuesday at an assembly of hundreds of students and teachers. The event featured patriotic music, a silent drill performed by the Junior ROTC and a presentation of a plaque.

The military has been his Whitmarsh's life since he joined Junior ROTC during his sophomore year at Irving High School.

We arrived on late Monday night [Sept.10] and went right into action on Tuesday morning" [Sept.11]

DEA Chief: "War on Drugs Hurting"

The war against terrorism is diverting federal agents, patrol boats and other resources from the war on drugs, the nation's chief narcotics officer said yesterday.

"It's a battle of resources right now," Drug Enforcement Administration chief Asa Hutchinson said at a breakfast with reporters. It is particularly an issue for the Coast Guard and the FBI, he said. "When the dust settles, there will be discussions."

"What ATF refused to consider at Waco was that the Davidians were sincere in their strange religious beliefs. The ATF undercover agent, as well as the apostate Branch Davidians whom the ATF had interviewed, all told the ATF that the Branch Davidians fully expected to be massacred at the hands of "Babylon" (the American government)." --Dave Kopel

WASHINGTON -- "In the event of a bio-terrorist attack using a deadly and contagious disease such as smallpox, public health officials want to be able to close roads and airports, herd people into stadiums, and, if necessary, quarantine entire infected cities."

"50 governors this week are to receive copies of a proposed law, drafted at the behest of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, which could give states immense power to control their populations."

"Would a National Guardsman, he asked, shoot a grandmother trying to evade quarantine?"

"Maybe, Gostin said. 'You have to use all reasonable force.' Sometimes, he added, that could mean lethal force."

This is the response -- lame as it is -- to Bellesiles' critics. Note the theme of victimhood that pervades his "defense" of his shoddy scholorship. One can only hope that this will not wash with Emory's investigation. If it does, we can reasonably assume that the investigation was always meant to be a white-wash.

"Whole communities have been terrorized by gunfire for a very, very long time," said Philip Cook, Duke University professor and co-author of 'Gun Violence: The Real Costs'.

"But this is not just a problem for the poor and disenfranchised. The impact is much broader than the people who are killed. It affects property values, taxes, schools, quality of life."

BAY ST. LOUIS - Hancock County Sheriff Steve Garber is adding firepower to his department's arsenal because of the recent terrorist attacks.

Garber said all 35 full-time officers will be issued M-1 carbines, a semiautomatic rifle that uses 15-round clips with .30-caliber bullets. The rifles, refurbished models from World War II, were recently purchased from a private company in California that was selling them exclusively to law enforcement agencies for $140 each.

"Bush has stated that we will hunt down terrorism where ever it is found and bring those who caused these acts of terror to justice. I am saying that we need to start right here in OR and CA. Those who have caused the water to be shut off must be jailed and brought before the courts for justice. Anyone in government, including the Governor who allowed this act to continue, should also be brought to justice." --Sheriff Michael E. Cook
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
