NATIONAL CITY -- Efforts by a local activist to get a citizen-elected police review board on the ballot were "ruled illegal" by the court.

Terry Hanks collected more than 2,200 signatures, hundreds more than the 10% of the city's registered voters needed, but was arrested for "carrying ammunition." (Yes, you heard correctly.)

Councilman Mitch Beauchamp said, "The problem has been the messenger."

--Inotherwords, they don't like him and are using that as an excuse.

Win Sell works thousands of calls as North Port Animal Control officer each year. He wrestles alligators, removes wounded animals from fire-scorched woods, captures nonvenomous snakes and traps raccoons.

While he never minds getting dirty or putting himself in harm's way to rescue an animal, even Sell realizes he needs to protect himself.

North Port City Commissioners say "he can," but not with a firearm.

"The new "security" procedures have done absolutely nothing to improve passenger safety and a lot to reduce freedom. But they have let a few politicians and bureaucrats claim they are doing something worthwhile and so they can brag about it during the next campaign."

"The best way to combat terrorism (and other forms of random evil in the world) is to teach everyone that their duty is to resist evil wherever it is encountered and ensure they have the tools to resist."--Charlie Macaulay

Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi said Sunday that Japan Coast Guard personnel who shot at an unidentified ship off Amami-Oshima Island, Kagoshima Prefecture, on Saturday night were "engaging in legitimate self-defense."

--But they don't place the same value on the lives of their own citizens, who are outlawed from having guns for self-defense.

NOTE: Not gun related in any way, but shows the progression to a police state...

A new policy banning smoking in cars and requiring new employees to be nonsmokers should be in place by February.

The Florida Supreme Court in 1996 upheld the city of North Miami's policy banning the employment of applicants who use tobacco. The court said the lower insurance costs outweighed the privacy issue.

It won't be long before hunters will be sending in their application for big game permits for mule deer, antelope and elk.

[But] Don't think that because its a Hunter's Safety Course that you need to be a hunter to benefit from it! The course would benefit anyone, because it familiarizes the students with guns, how they work and how to safely handle them.

Anthony King is the first person charged under "Project SAFE" (Strategically Applied Firearms Enforcement). The program is designed to reduce gun violence in the Syracuse area by moving selected gun prosecutions out of state court and into the federal system, where potential sentences are longer for gun offenses. (Like "Project Exile")

--And why "can't" state systems impose the same tough sentences? Why do they need the feds?

The Times story left out a couple of key facts:

(1) Current law says records generated by the National Instant-Check System are supposed to be destroyed and

(2) the law bars the government from creating "any system of registration of firearms."

If federal agents can pick through gun-purchase records, that sounds a lot like a gun registry.

A St. Bernard elementary school that expelled a student last month for bringing a BB gun to school recently raffled off a "hunting package" that included a 12-gauge shotgun, prompting a School Board member to question if the school was sending its students a "mixed message."

Some had no problem though... Celie Robin who has 2 grandchildren at the school said, "Some people might think it's awful, but what's the difference between a fishing pole and a shotgun?"
 

 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].
