"Andre is a Haitian national who is a legal U-S resident. He was trying to catch a flight to Haiti two weeks ago, and said he needed the gun plus 50 extra bullets for protection once he got there."

"Prosecutors wanted higher bond because of what they called the inherent danger of trying to carry a weapon on to a plane." ...

"Yahoo! Inc. asked an appeals court to uphold a lower court's ruling that said the second-biggest Internet auction service doesn't have to obey a French court order to remove Nazi symbols from its Web site."

"Yahoo, which went to court in the U.S. to keep two French civil rights groups from enforcing the French order, told the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals it faces daily fines of 100,000 francs ($15,198)." ...
-------
Ignore the "Nazi symbols" red herring and look at the bigger picture. This legal case has far reaching implications for liberty advocates. If the backwards socialist French government can dictate what an American-based company can or cannot put on its website, imagine what could happen when some society of fools makes it illegal to show pictures of firearms, to advocate enforcement of the right of the people to keep and bear arms... etc.

If these Marxists had their way, any anti-gun, anti-rights nation could issue similarly large fines against any American liberty advocacy organization -- like KeepAndBearArms.com, for example -- for "offensive" site content.

While we certainly would not advocate Nazism (BATF does a good enough job at that), we say the French are wrong on this issue -- dead wrong -- and applaud the American judges who agree.
 

Japan: Angry ape goes on the rampage against defenseless sheeple

FULL TEXT PROVIDED...about how monkeys are superior to unarmed Japanese peasants...
-------
NAGANO -- Fourteen women were injured Monday after a wild monkey went on the rampage in a residential area of Shimosuwa, Nagano Prefecture, authorities said.

Police and local health officials armed with tranquilizer guns and nets launched a hunt for the 1-meter tall Japanese macaque, but it remains at large.

"An extremely violent ape is roaming the town. Please avoid making eye contact when you spot it," said a warning issued through outdoor public address systems which have been installed across the town for emergency uses.

Police said the 14 victims -- from women in their teens to those in their 70s -- were tackled, scratched, or bitten by the monkey from around 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. One of the victims, a 72-year-old woman, was badly bitten around her right knee while hanging out laundry and was hospitalized. Another elderly woman broke her arm after she fell while being chased by the ape.

A Shimosuwa official said the strong macaque could be extremely agitated because it was chased out of its habitat after losing out in a fight with another male monkey over who would rule their domain. (Mainichi Shimbun, Dec. 2, 2002)
-------
In many parts of America, turning this monkey loose would be a death warrant for the little critter. But in Japan, if the "authorities," with their guns, aren't able to get him... "don't make eye contact" is about their best chance, and even then they may be hospitalized.

Are they the only ones that have had the independence and cunning bred out of them? Are they the only ones that depend on their owners to feed and protect them? Are they the only ones that have become property rather than self-reliant individuals?"

"Regrettably, there are human turkeys who have become so used to being cared for that they are now unable to recognize enemies, much less to protect themselves and their young. There are human turkeys who have been treated as domestic animals for so long that they have come to think of themselves that way."

"The amount spent on the controversial federal program established in 1995 expected to reach $1-billion by 2004 is more than 10 times its original price tag, critics complain.

"Timothy Brooks, 36, was involved in what witnesses said was a heated argument with his wife in a parking lot on Austin Bluffs. The woman apparently got out of the car and ran away. Witnesses said Brooks drove after her and they believed the woman was about to be kidnapped or assaulted.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
We'll take one step at a time, and the first is necessarily - given the political realities - very modest. We'll have to start working again to strengthen the law, and then again to strengthen the next law and again and again. Our ultimate goal, total control of handguns, is going to take time. The first problem is to slow down production and sales. Next is to get registration. The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and ammunition (with a few exceptions) totally illegal. Pete Shields, founder of Handgun Control, Inc., New Yorker Magazine, June 26, 1976, pg. 53
