"Dear Criminals,
Don't worry about learning the high technology alarm systems on the market today with an eye towards disabling them.
I am a Computer Network Administrator in a VERY HIGH TECH WORLD and knowledgeable about differing types of high tech home defense systems including ADT and others of that type. The reason I mention this is because of my choice for burglar alarms and home defense. I choose the low tech home safety devices..."

Valley View Mall management has never seen such a flurry of negative feedback.

More than 20 gun-rights activists have called, written e-mails or sent letters vowing to boycott the mall until it reverses its policy forbidding guns, the mall manager says.

The reason: the mall and other businesses, including Paramount's Kings Dominion amusement park near Richmond, appear on a Web site's list of so-called "gun owner unfriendly establishments."
 

SC: Palmetto Exile plan 'a balanced approach'

NRA state affiliate says, "Palmetto Exile is a balanced approach that attacks the real problem while protecting the rights of gun owners."

-- Note that this citizen fails to explain HOW the rights of gun owners will be protected. If a legal gun owner acquires 'felon' status, post facto, will he be protected?

Remember, it is their objective to make felons of all citizens and thereby legally disarm and disbar US of our 2A rights.

Campaign finance reform's success or failure this week will come down to what kind of coalition Republican leaders can build to derail the bill, which party leaders see as endangering their control of Congress.

"Wednesday's going to be very, very tight. Super Bowl tight," Rep. Roy Blunt, Missouri Republican and his party's chief deputy whip, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" yesterday.

Historians who reviewed an Emory University history professor's controversial book on America's gun culture raise serious questions about his scholarly competence, according to David Garrow, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Emory law professor and political historian.

The four essays to be published this week in the William and Mary Quarterly do not accuse Emory professor Michael Bellesiles of deliberate deception, Garrow said after reviewing advance proofs obtained by the Journal-Constitution.

Like to think your opinion counts? Under the guise of reforming election funding, Sen. John McCain and others are attempting to muzzle your voice concerning critical national issues--including the Second Amendment. And with the mainstream media trumpeting his cause, the truth isn't seeing the light of day.

"According to Patrick's lawyer, Steve Glink, police found a doodle of a gun, a photo of two swords, an essay defending the right to bear arms and another writing assignment that mentioned weapons. School officials say that Patrick's love of guns shows he's emotionally disturbed and he needs to be in a "special" school. On these grounds, they are still refusing to following the judges order...." - Theresa Harmon, The Wilson County Parents Coalition, http://www.WilsonCountyParents.org

"I've been telling you for years that there is a war against individualism and the very concept of the individual going on in this country. The left simply doesn't like the idea of individualism.

Individuals, after all, have individual rights; and among those individual rights would be the right to their own life, the right to the control of their own body and the right to property..." - Neal Boortz

"I could be your neighbor, doctor, clergyman, nurse or just another nameless, faceless stranger in the crowd. Though you don't know me, there are a few things, however, you can know about me for certain."

-- A great article from a gun-rights activist and patriot - along with a permission to reprint. Good to use for letters to the editor, or just to pass around to anti-gunners and those "sitting-on-the-fence".

MANITOWOC – An area gun rights advocate predicted Friday that proposed legislation requiring background checks of all handgun buyers at gun shows would do little to prevent crime.

New legislation by Sen. Brian Burke (D-Milwaukee) that would require background checks for all handgun transactions is still being drafted...would close the so-called gun show loophole, said Burke aide Bob Allen.

"Gary Kleck points out in the book he coauthored with Don Kates, Armed, that it was not until 1993 that a survey was conducted to find out how many times a year a gun is used in self-defense.

Kleck gives the layman a glimpse of the care that is needed in how to ask questions, and how to evaluate the answers that are given. There are so many different things to keep in mind, it is easy to see how a careless or unscrupulous researcher can get almost any result he wishes..." - Larry Pratt of GOA
 

Terror could 'tilt' High Court on States Rights
Submitted by: Newslinks Director

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
Law scholars are debating whether the "war on terrorism" may prompt the high court's conservatives to "rethink" seven years of constitutional precedents.

The governmental structure designed by the Founding Fathers was intended to foster competition between dual sovereigns rather than subservient states seeking instructions and handouts from Washington.

"The issue is significant because it could mark the last whimper of the Reagan revolution against big government."

"Federal airport baggage screeners will not have the same whistleblower protection enjoyed by other federal government employees who disclose waste and fraud," transportation security chief John W. Magaw said, and he believes "full whistleblower protection could be harmful to security operations."

The federal whistleblower statute guarantees confidentiality and other protections to federal employees who report what they believe to be waste, fraud or other violations in the workplace.

Is a BB gun a deadly weapon?
Colorado lawmakers will begin a week of legislative fighting over guns today with that issue on their plate.

Sen. Mark Hillman, a farmer and former Daisy BB gun owner from Burlington, will try to convince the Senate Judiciary Committee that a BB or pellet gun is not a deadly weapon unless it's used to cause death or bodily injury.

Campaign finance reform, especially under the guise of S.27--the McCain-Feingold legislation that passed the U.S. Senate in April--is a direct attack on every individual American's First Amendment right to use political speech to protect the entire Bill of Rights.
 

 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).
