"The people in government break the laws of God and man with apparent impunity, exercising authority they don't have under color of law. They infringe not only on the rights of the American people but the very common decency and respect we for the most part have towards and for all people. Some may disagree but how many of you actually believe that butchering people around the globe is the answer to creating world peace?"

"An officer of the Jacksonville police said Friday night that DeBolt had to be restrained in custody because 'he was combative at the back door of the jail.' DeBolt's mug shot shows swollen eyes and lacerations around his mouth, though the arrest report does not mention those injuries or any involvement in an altercation."

"The officer, who was not on duty at the time of DeBolt's arrest, added 'as far as we know, he was just a normal, disorderly intoxicated person and we had to do what we had to do.' "

-------
Take a look at the mugshot and see if you think appropriate force was used.

CA: California's Assault Weapons Ban does Indeed Violate the Constitution
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"In their decision, the Ninth Circuit acknowledged that the weapons California sought to regulate or ban are military type weapons. Since the word 'arming' in Clause 16 includes individual citizens providing their own military weapon, no State can pass a general statute that negates or interferes with this constitutional provision."

"This principle also applies to Congress. That body cannot pass any statute that alters or defeats a constitutional provision. A general federal assault weapons ban would constitute a revision of the Constitution because it would alter the arming provision enumerated in Clause 16. The Constitution can only be changed through the amendment process enumerated in Article V."

"As basic as freedom of speech and religion is the American right to bear arms.

After attending Chief Fleury's seminar, I think that is no exaggeration. Bah! Humbug!"

"It was once called "Toronto the Good" for its law-abiding ways, but that image has faded recently as Canada's largest city battles a wave of gun violence centered on its Jamaican community and accusations police use racial profiling." ...

"Nevertheless, Toronto remains very safe by U.S. standards. According to government statistics, Toronto proper, with about 2.5 million people, had 59 homicides in 2001. Chicago proper, with 2.9 million people, had more than 600 last year."

-------
Chicago has arguably some of the toughest gun control laws in the country. Could Toronto be headed for a similar fate if Canada continues to tighten its chokehold on law-abiding gun owners?

"Previously, New York State hunters could use scopes on front-loader guns only during the big-game shotgun season.

"Not this year."

"Shooters of Knight, Thompson Center and other popular commercial or custom-made muzzleloader guns can accurately sight in their favorite caliber and shoot that gun throughout shotgun and late muzzleloader season."

"Governor James McGreevy signed into law legislation that will
make New Jersey citizens guinea pigs for unproven technology. This
action will cost more New Jersey citizens' lives than it will ever
save."

"The so called 'Smart Gun' legislation will eventually restrict
New Jersey citizen's choice of firearms to only those unproven
'smart guns,' while at the same time exempting the police. We can
only wonder why the New Jersey Legislature has forced the civilian
population to be the beta testers for equipment that our lives may
someday depend upon."
