"This project investigates the need for a U.S. Stability Police Force, the major capabilities it would need if created, where in the federal government it would best be headquartered, and how it should be staffed. In doing so, it considers options based in the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, and State. The project was conducted for the U.S. Army’s Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute (PKSOI). Its purpose was to make recommendations to PKSOI, the Army, and the community of rule-of-law researchers, practitioners, and policymakers on the need for (and characteristics of) a U.S. Stability Police Force." ...

Safer Streets 101: Gun rights have always been more than self-defense

words that the second amendment wasn't written for us. This is because not only do our fundamental human rights predate the Constitution, but it is also not we who need to be reminded of our rights ... It is government who needs to be reminded. 2A was not written for the citizen, it was written for government. The words of art shall not have legal meaning and are clear enough. They . . . ought to be, that is."

"Most gun owners will say that gun control interferes with our rights to self-defense, and that gun bans leave people defenseless. Yes, they do. Gun owners talk about the civil right of the second amendment, and how we fight tyranny, but how exactly? Will it be with shoot-outs with our own troops?" ...

"I am a representative in Student Government at The University of Texas at Austin."

"I'm also uniquely positioned to discuss the issue of firearms and classrooms as an alumnus of Virginia Tech: I was there in 2007 when the shooting happened, and I lost the girl I love."

"In no way was that tragedy the fault of those licensed to carry concealed handguns. With that said, our tragedy has been used by proponents of a Guns Everywhere policy to push a political agenda." ...
 

CO: CSU gun ban is the right call

"Concealed firearms have their legal place in society, but hidden guns hardly seem appropriate on university campuses."

"We think it's more than reasonable for the board that oversees Colorado State University to ask that administrators enact a ban on guns to individuals who own concealed-carry permits. The CSU Board of Governors voted 9-0 last week to implement a ban on campuses in Fort Collins and Pueblo, and now college presidents must craft the policy." ...

"But we think an argument also could be made that more weapons on campus actually increase the chances of accidental shootings or other problems. ..." ...

Submitter's Note: FYI the are 5.3 accidental shooting deaths per million college aged people (18 - 24).

"Gloria Cruz was waiting her turn to speak at a City Council hearing on anti-gang legislation last week. She was in the stately Council chamber at City Hall, reading through her testimony, sitting by herself in the second row. She was surrounded by others who would be testifying: a deputy police commissioner, several chief prosecutors and community people like herself. Cruz was there because she is a tireless anti-gun advocate. She was asked to give her take on the lure of guns and gangs for the city's aimless youth." ...

... "We are constantly told that the increasingly frequent episodes of criminal violence by police are aberrations, and that 'most' police are good, decent, honorable people. ... I know people in that line of work who meet that description."

"My question is this: Just where the hell are those good, decent, honorable police officers when their comrades are committing crimes of the kind committed against Don Joughin's children? How can a police officer direct a ... stream of caustic solution into the face of a terrified eleven-month-old baby in the serene knowledge that nobody among his peers would object? What does it say about the police culture in Portland that the reaction of the officers on-site was to rebuke the father ..." ...
