Sun Microsystems has joined Auto-ID (funded by Procter & Gamble, Gillette, Wal-Mart, Unilever, Tesco, Target and others) to build wireless digital ID tags into everything.

People might not be comfortable walking around with items that identify themselves as medication, or pornography, or with manufacturers tracking where products go after being purchased.

"If legislators mandate mandatory tagging of firearms or ammunition, we could get both the left and right wing pissed off."

"None of the three men contending for state representative for House District 128 have ever held a public-elected office, but that’s about all they have in common.

"Gonzales, 55, calls for tax relief, education reform, protection of 2nd Amendment firearms rights and using training to build a first-line defense against terrorism."

MN: Get involved in handgun law

It seems odd that one of the first bills to hit the floor in the 2002 Legislative session was a “concealed weapons” bill that would change the way law enforcement grants permits to carry loaded handguns in public.

The debate about this bill started last year and was narrowly defeated. Proponents of the measure have vowed to bring it back and keep bringing it back until it passes...

"There are many reasons Kmart went bankrupt - unfashionable clothes, poor financial decisions and general mismanagement - but now a card-carrying member of the National Rifle Association claims gun-toters were responsible for the discount retailer's bankruptcy filing."

You would have to pay close attention to know it, but several lives were saved recently because someone had a gun available. Yet, John Lott of Yale University found by searching a database, only four of 280 news stories mentioned that rather pertinent fact.

The debate continues in a historical quarterly this month. But the point is that emotional arguments in favor of gun control constantly run aground on the shoals of hard facts and actual events.

State Sen. Andre Bauer of Newberry, who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, has worked as a substitute teacher and is being trained as a reserve deputy. "As it stands now," says, "Criminals know they can enter schools and be certain that people there are not armed. Criminals have the upper hand."

Mary Jo McInerny, head of school "safety" says the idea "fails every last one of her tests for school safety. On a scale of 1 to 100 with 100 being ludicrous, the idea is a 101."

"I will veto any attempt to weaken South Carolina's gun-free zones," Hodges said in a statement Friday. "As a parent with two children in public school, I don't buy the argument that guns make schools safer for our children. Schools and guns do not mix."

-- Wake-up Hodges, it's an election year.

"I'm writing to alert you to an ominous, potentially tragic gap in your homeland security preparations. ... The gap exists in the millions of square miles of the U.S. that simply can't be safeguarded by federal agents, even with the aid of sophisticated technology.

"Fortunately, you have at hand the one force that can most surely close this dangerous gap: The American people." -- Aaron Zelman, Executive Director, JPFO.org

The U.N.'s upcoming "Financing for Development" conference is meant to boost foreign aid spending. To finance their scheme, the bureaucrats want to create a World Tax Organization with the power to impose global taxes.

These proposals may sound too ridiculous to be true, but the evidence can be found from the U.N. itself -- links to its report can be found at their deceivingly-named website: "FreedomAndProsperity.org"

Bakersfield teacher and homicide victim Suzanne Walck was worried in recent weeks that her husband would kill her, according to police investigation reports. Suzanne confided in her best friend about threats from her husband, and, just two days before the killing, she said that her husband was buying a new gun to kill her.

KABA NOTE: Apparently, like always, "gun control" laws DO NOT PREVENT CRIME.

"A person whose life is being threatened should not have to wait weeks or months for a class to become available in order to carry a firearm to defend herself.

"Likewise, lower-income people, who are often most in need of effective means of self-defense, should not be excluded from concealed-carry based on their inability to afford a class." --Sarah Thompson, UTGOA.org

"When Vice President Dick Cheney came to town last summer, a lot of people didn't see any reason to leave their guns at home. If something happened, wouldn't the vice president be better off with a roomful of law-abiding armed Utahans there to help?..."

--Just a reflection of the deep seated mindset of Big Government: The people are not to be trusted. Demonrat or Rino Administration. (Even if we understand why the secret service has this condition, it is unconstitutional.)

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. Indeed I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order. — Adolf Hitler, April 11, 1942. (Source: "Hitler's Table-Talk at the Fuehrer's Headquarters 1941-1942", Dr. Henry Picker, ed. (Athenaeum Verlag, Bonn, 1951).)
