"Another holiday season is upon us and, I can just see the lawsuits materializing against various towns, cities and municipalities over an improper display of a nativity scene. Of course, they will be driven by various civil liberties organizations such as People for the American Way and the American Civil Liberties Union (both of them misnomers at all levels). The grounds for these lawsuits will be that they represent an unconstitutional endorsement of religion by government."

"Nutria, a non-native species that has overrun Gulf of Mexico wetlands since the value of their fur plummeted in the early 1980s, devour plants that keep the soil from washing away."

" 'The nutria run away, but they're not that quick,' said Loupe, who picks off the pests with his .22 rifle. 'Sometimes you see two, three, four on a hill, and you get all of them. There's none that gets away.' "

"Louisiana has tried just about everything to get rid of the rodents. Nutria cuisine didn't catch on, and nutria fur coats fell out of favor. Sheriff's deputies still shoot them for target practice, and recreational nutria hunting had its debut last year."

NJ: New Jersey Court Declares State's Civil Forfeiture Funding Scheme Unconstitutional

"New Jersey's method of financing police and prosecutors through civil forfeiture is unconstitutional, Superior Court Judge G. Thomas Bowen of Salem County ruled in a December 11 opinion. Under New Jersey's civil forfeiture law (N.J.S.A 2C:64-6a) prosecutors and police had been entitled to keep the money and property confiscated from individuals through the state's civil forfeiture law, thus giving them a direct financial stake in the outcome of forfeiture efforts."

Learn how to handle and store firearms safely for the protection of your family and friends. Hunters and sport shooters know the importance of safety while in the field with a gun. But firearms in the home need to be treated with the same respect as when in the field."

"It was all part of a new California program -- the nation's first -- wherein state agents try to identify some of the estimated 170,000 firearms registered to owners who later run afoul of the law and are no longer allowed to possess weapons."

"Even the National Rifle Association supported the bill when it was debated in the Legislature last year, but a lawyer for the organization now questions whether the law is being enforced too broadly. Among his concerns: Gun owners can lose their weapons if they have temporary restraining orders imposed on them by the courts in domestic violence cases -- even if they're not convicted."

Citizens Of America and KeepAndBearArms.com have been warning about the current NRA management's endorsement of UNCONSTITUTIONAL GUN LAWS. This story is one example of the results. The worst example is Project Exile, which you can read about here.

Be sure to read the QUOTES from the NRA management.

When will the NRA be led by true supporters of the 2nd Amendment?

"We have reached the stage foreseen by Tocqueville, in which "the supreme power... covers the surface of society with a net-work of small complicated rules, minute and uniform... it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd." And aside from a few grumblers like Fred Reed and G. Gordon Liddy, we are fine with it."
