...the Defense Science Board, warned in 1994 that "a usually non-lethal weapon may cause unintended lethality under certain conditions: A stun gun could kill someone with a weak heart. A 'rubber' bullet could hit a particularly vulnerable body part like the throat, and thus become lethal. And microwave devices could have unintended effects." ...

"The recent debate about ballistic fingerprinting is nothing less than complete firearm registration. Common sense will tell you that when two metal surfaces contact each other, the surface characteristics will change over a period of time because of that contact. The physical properties of the materials used in firearm barrels and ammunition will without a doubt affect any attempt at static ballistic fingerprinting. This is a fact and cannot be disputed." ...

Do the Brady people vigorously inhale paint fumes before they write their press releases?

Brady Campaign to Eradicate the Second Amendment issued the above-linked press release and gave it the following title: "Brady Campaign Outlines Results of Election 2002 for Gun Violence Prevention".

In their press release, they say: "Candidates who made gun violence prevention a campaign issue were victorious..."

REALITY CHECK...

The Bradys put lots of money and energy behind Kathleen Kennedy Townsend's bid for governor of Maryland. Thinking that one or two fools with a rifle taking sniper shots meant all the sheep would follow the gun control campers over a cliff, the Bradys pulled out all stops and campaigned hard for Townsend. And Kathy took their advice, idiotically bleating about more gun control in Maryland, where gun control has been proven a dismal failure -- and got her butt kicked by the man who said it's time to review gun laws for their effectiveness or lack thereof.

If that's Brady's idea of a victory, we wish them all the success in the world come next election cycle.

"The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) claims its organizational mission is to 'expose and combat the purveyors of hatred in our midst.' However, some conservatives say they are offended by the ADL's deliberate efforts to equate the right wing with hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and Nazi Low Riders."

"The ADL maintains an extensive database of information on a broad range of 'dangerous extremists' and closely monitors the nationwide activities of the predominantly anti-Semitic, white supremacist organizations. The group's website also features a calendar of "Upcoming Extremist Events" in order to alert concerned citizens across the country of hate gatherings occurring in their cities and towns."

"Yet some question why the ADL has issued a warning for the Free American's 2002 Home-Land Security Expo that will take place in McDonough, Georgia, from Nov. 8-10." ...

Reason: ADL considers a "Free American" to be an extremist -- and a danger to their socialist agenda. So, ironically, they defame good people.

PADUCAH - "The family of an autistic man restrained by a Paducah police officer in March is suing the city in U.S. District Court, seeking $5.8 million in damages."

"The suit, filed Tuesday in Paducah, claims Jose Lee was wrongfully arrested and improperly investigated, that he was unlawfully seized and imprisoned, and that the department's conduct toward him was outrageous."

"It also claims outrageous conduct toward his father, Arthur, and his sister Audrey, who saw Officer Rob Hefner holding down Mr. Lee and told the officer of his condition."

"Police Chief Randy Bratton, named in the suit along with Officer Hefner, was out of town and unavailable for comment." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crime. Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson
