"While many people assume this latest fight against gun control in California is being waged by the National Rifle Association or state gun owner groups, the real contestant is Gorski, a virtual unknown, who filed the challenge on behalf of nine plaintiffs -- most of them rugby buddies. Variously described as a 'loose cannon' and a dogged worker 'with the heart of a champion,' Gorski, 40, is definitely one thing -- persistent."

"It is unfortunate that Oregon is not one of the 37 states that have passed legislation banning permit holders from carrying their guns into school buildings and, for that matter, many public places where children and families gather.

"I can tell him why I favor most gun control laws:"

"1. To keep guns away from criminals." Won't happen.

"2. To prevent gun accidents among children." That's what parental responsibility is about.

"3. To protect law enforcement officers." They're already armed.

"4. To keep certain weapons away from civilians." Why? What is he afraid of?

"5. To make gun makers liable for their products and actions ..." They already are.

"The men used duct tape to restrain a 22-year-old man inside the home, then rummaged through the house. The victim was not injured."

Warning to our neighbors in the North. As you tighten the screws on gun owners, such home invasions will become more commonplace. The "Great" British gun control experiment ought to serve as a lesson in what not to do.

"Since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Seattle privacy and security law expert Albert Gidari has had his hands full, advising cell phone and Internet companies on responses to a flood of search warrants and wiretap orders."

"But law enforcement agents aren't always waiting for court orders before demanding information."

" 'The requests for customer records are up three or four times what they were before - and we're getting a lot of requests for voluntary disclosures because of national security,' said Gidari, whose clients include AT&T Wireless, Nextel and Connexion by Boeing."

"Agents in certain field offices are impatient and view you as unpatriotic (if you decline). I've had instances where agents have said, 'Give me your Social Security number and your address' to an in-house lawyer who wouldn't produce records without a subpoena."

"Why does the litigation lobby fight such reforms? Why does it carry on at such length about the jury as a representative institution, then do its best during selection to make it as unrepresentative as it knows how? ...These varied positions are not united by the goal of maximizing the power juries get to exert. ...they can be seen to share only one common theme: They all arrange matters so as to maximize the power trial lawyers themselves get to exert. Should we be surprised?"
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
