Outside View: Alternatives to the draft
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

SEATTLE, WA, United States (UPI) -- There is a process in American political life by which the unthinkable becomes the inevitable. Right now, the draft is as dead as last week`s road kill, and about as palatable. But the war goes on, the U.S. Army is imploding, and it`s possible to conceive of a number of foreign and domestic disasters that might move the issue from a Charlie Rangel fantasy to a deadly serious possibility.

"Twice in the past three years," said CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron, "anti-gun Democrat Gov. Jim Doyle has vetoed the single piece of legislation that would put victims on equal footing with criminals, and instead he has left citizens at their mercy. Doyle's callous disregard for the self-defense rights of the citizens who put him in office puts their blood on his hands.

Statkowski is a councilman in Cherry Tree Borough in Indiana County. He is proposing – and borough council is considering – an ordinance recommending that households in Cherry Tree have at least one firearm with ammunition for self-defense purposes.

But, Statkowski said, this is not only a message for residents urging them to take precautions.

This is as much a message to would-be criminals who think Cherry Tree might be a good place to break into someone’s home.

As of Monday night, the City of Cincinnati has had at least 79 people die at the hands of others this year.

That's the same number of homicides in the city last year, and there's still almost a month left.

...

What's caught the eye of police brass is that this year there's been a rise in homicides involving juveniles and also an increase in homicides resulting in self defense.

Guns should be allowed in schools. Owning a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon on campus would be a good idea for personal safety. These views and more were expressed last Tuesday in the MUB when the Young American's for Freedom (YAF) hosted an open discussion on the right to bear arms.

Once upon a time, the motto emblazoned on police cars was “To Protect and Serve.” However, as police forces are transformed into pseudo-SWAT teams, complete with riot gear and a take-no-prisoners attitude, the fear that cops are overstepping their limits is on the rise.

"...Resentment is a passion implanted by nature for the preservation of the individual. Injury is the object which excites it. Injustice, wrong, injury, excite the feeling of resentment as naturally and necessarily as frost and ice excite the feeling of cold, as fire excites heat, and as both excite pain. A man may have the faculty of concealing his resentment, or suppressing it, but he must and ought to feel it; nay, he ought to indulge it, to cultivate it; it is a duty. His person, his property, his liberty, his reputation, are not safe without it. He ought, for his own security and honor, and for the public good, to punish those who injure him, unless they repent, and then he should forgive...."

Concealed weapons at parks?

Legislation proposed by outgoing U.S. Sen. George Allen, R-Va., that would allow private citizens to carry their legally concealed handguns inside national parks seems sensible and long overdue. People should not surrender their right of self-defense at the boundary of a national park, and when personal safety collides with political correctness, common sense dictates that civil rights should trump social bigotry against gun owners every time.

I appreciate the desire of "Your voice" columnist Charles Donabedian ("Seek facts in debate over gun rights," Nov. 28) to inject fact into the debate over gun rights, and I thank him for his service to our country in Vietnam. His argument regarding the role of the Second Amendment in America today, however, is demonstrably wrong. I'm not a lawyer, but many learned individuals - including four U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal - disagree with Donabedian's analysis. In fact, the New York Times editorial to which he refers merely repeats the state of the law as it exists today.

The range will also be available for civilian weapons training. The Walton County Sheriff’s Office will offer a basic pistol course developed by the National Rifle Association. This course can fulfill the training requirement for the citizens applying for a Florida concealed weapons permit. Future plans are to also offer a youth hunter safety course.

Over the decades, the U.S. Supreme Court has heard many cases stemming from police violence against Americans justified by the so-called "War on Drugs." Never once have the justices seized the opportunity to rule -- as they are obliged to rule by their oaths of office -- "Oh, and by the way, your so-called 'War on Drugs' is totally unconstitutional under the Ninth Amendment. So cut it out."

A constitutional amendment -- the 18th, since repealed -- was required to suspend Americans' Ninth Amendment right to buy, possess, and consume alcohol, after all. So when was the constitutional amendment that similarly authorizes any part of the current "War on Drugs" ratified?

"...The Constitution derived no authority from the first Convention; it was concurred in by conventions of the people, and that concurrence armed it with power, and invested it with dignity. Now, the Congress of the United States are expressly authorized, by the sovereign and uncontrollable voice of the people, to propose amendments whenever two thirds of both houses shall think fit. Now, if this is the fact, the propositions of amendment will be found to originate with a higher authority than the original system. The conventions of the states respectively have agreed, for the people..."

"..."articles of compact between the original States and the people and States in the said territory," which should "forever remain unalterable, unless by common consent." ...

"...The bill before me begins with an entire subversion of every one of the compacts...."

"...The constitution of the United States did not delegate to Congress, the power to abrogate these compacts. On the contrary, by declaring that nothing in it "shall be so construed as to prejudice any claims of the United States, or of any particular State," it virtually provides that these compacts, and the rights they secure, shall remain untouched by the legislative power. . . . All beyond this would seem to be an assumption of undelegated power...."
