"Awkward"

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." - Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Libertarian Wolfe made her famous observation above in the mid-nineties. Now here we are more than ten years later, even more isolated and politically disenfranchised, and we must ask the question: how far do we have to go to get past "awkward?"

History never exactly repeats itself and thus is an imperfect guide. Studying history "we see through a glass, darkly." Still, there are patterns in history that deserve our close attention, so we may better understand how to act in the present and to enable us to better predict the future.

Bloggers are raising their voices in unison calling for punishment for a federal agent who left her gun in a restroom inside the secured area at Milwaukee's airport.

"Using the agency's own standards, this agent should be headed to the slam," wrote straightarrow on the blog managed by Ryan Horsley at Red's Trading Post in Idaho.

"Because it was left in a TSA secured area for anyone to pick up, anyone who found it was a prohibited person due to location," he said.

The incident has gotten only nominal publicity, with mostly local reporters carrying the story. According to the Associated Press, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent, who was not identified by authorities, left her gun in the restroom.

"Groves, 32, said he had stalked her in silence since she left him in June, finally confronting and assaulting her and a male friend at Griggs Reservoir in early August. Prosecutors declined to file charges, but she was granted the protection order because of the altercation. Mr. Groves continued to follow her, usually taking care to stay beyond the 500-foot limit set by a judge."

"Postmus, a social-work professor and director of the Center for Violence Against Women and Children, concluded that if the abuse is severe and long-lasting, a protection order might be ineffective and cause more problems for the victim."

MA: Boston Cops Seek To Disarm Citizens

As Boston police prepare to go into some of the city's most dangerous neighborhoods, knock on doors of private houses, and ask if they can search for illegal guns without a warrant, officials are trying to pitch the idea of the plan as friendly cooperation to residents who still see it as a threatening intrusion.

A friendly looking logo - a drawing of a house surrounded by the sun - adorns the brochure police have drafted to explain and promote the initiative, "Safe Homes." Photos of officers playing baseball with children and chatting with teenagers dot the pamphlet. Twice, police have taken calls from listeners on a black radio station in Roxbury.

Mayor Carty Finkbeiner on Friday ordered some 200 members of Company A, 1st Battalion, 24th Marines from Grand Rapids, Michigan, out of Toledo just before the unit was supposed to start a weekend of urban warfare training downtown.
The mayor’s spokesperson, Brian Schwartz said, “The mayor asked them to leave because they frighten people. He did not want them practicing and drilling in a highly visible area."
Toledo police said they knew about the training and had approved the unit’s use of the Madison Building and the Promenade Park area. The training was scheduled to start Friday afternoon and last until Sunday. Police said the unit’s presence would have a minimal impact on the city.

"I'm afraid he'll hurt me or my son when he's mad," Christi Layne wrote in her petition in January, for a domestic violence civil protection order against her husband, the late William Michael (Mike) Layne.

Thursday morning, nearly seven weeks later, police say Layne entered Notre Dame Elementary School, where Christi Layne is a teacher, and - as her horrified fifth-grade students looked on - fired several shots at her with a pistol. One bullet glanced off her left cheek. The others missed. Layne then stabbed his estranged wife 14 times.

Submitter's Note: Another piece of paper that didn't stop bullets. Also, the shooting occurred in a Victim Disarmament Zone.
 

Cheney Breaks with Bush on 2nd Amendment

Cheney joined 55 senators and 250 House members in asking the court to find that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess firearms and to uphold a lower court's ruling that the D.C. ban violates that right. That position is at odds with the one put forward by the administration, which angered gun rights advocates when it suggested that the justices return the case to lower courts for further review. [....]

Lawyers said it may be unprecedented for a vice president to take a position in a case before the high court that is at odds with one the Justice Department puts forward as the administration's official position.

As more homes go up in Lincoln County, elected officials are considering a rule that would limit shooting within 500 feet of a residence. The ordinance, proposed last week by county commissioner Marie Moore, would outlaw shooting within 500 feet of a dwelling. It gives 10 exceptions, including shooting in self-defense, by law enforcement, for legal hunting, at dangerous animals, at shooting ranges, for ceremonies and holiday events and on the shooter's own property. "I don't think it's unreasonable to ask people not to shoot a gun within 500 feet of an occupied dwelling," Moore said.
 

TN: Hodge: Coding bullets? Bills have their flaws

Most politicians learned a few years ago that talking gun control is a political loser. So, to fill the vacuum they're talking bullet control. Sen. Reginald Tate (D-Memphis) and Rep. Larry J. Miller (D-Memphis) have introduced legislation that would require all handgun and assault weapon ammunition sold in Tennessee after Jan. 1, 2009, to be coded. The idea, they spell out in their identical bills, is coded bullets would help police solve homicides committed with handguns/assault weapons.

Ah, the Nazis. Modern America knows few epithets more vile. You can insult a man’s mother, wish rape on him, liken him to the hinder part of the alimentary canal. But don’t compare him to Germany’s totalitarians, even if he works for their contemporary counterparts, unless you want a fight – and a frisk from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
Darron Derrick was "very late" for his flight out of Tampa International Airport to Detroit. How late? "He checked in 38 minutes before the scheduled departure…"
Back when America was free, passengers who arrived 38 minutes prior to "scheduled departure" were early. But the TSA’s warrantless searches impede travel now, and we serfs are expected to revise our schedules accordingly. Our Rulers "recommend" we waste "at least two hours" in the airport; it’s our own fault if we flout their orders and miss our flight.

Submitter's Note: What ever you do, don't call a government employee a Nazi.

If you think your Second Amendment rights are secure, think again. The Bush administration recently appears to be openly at odds with the Second Amendment on two counts. First, on Jan. 8, President Bush inconspicuously signed the Veterans Disarmament Act (H.R.2640) sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y. This anti-gun bill, created in the atmosphere of the Virginia Tech massacre (April 16, 2007), is designed to make the screening process much tougher for gun ownership; a law that is particularly burdensome for our veterans.

"...The humiliation of our country is great, but let this emergency be rightly met, and our glory will also be greater. Old feudal laws, when men wore swords, forbade their use in palaces and other consecrated places. In this country the greatness of the emergency has consecrated even bar-rooms. Men used to brawl, abstain from blood. All are armed, but no man so vile that he does not feel the awful curse that will fall upon him who first takes a brother's life. Every day that men abstain renders a breach less probable. Still the responsibility of our rulers is great, and their consciences should be kept fully alive by the people they represent to the burthen that rests on them..."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. — St. George Tucker, in his edition of 'Blackstone's Commentaries,' 1:300 (1803).
