China: Crackdown on 'unregistered churches'
Submitted by: BobL

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
[Not directly RKBA related, except that the Chinese religon police remind me a lot of the anti-gun police in a lot of U.S. Cities!]

"China's communist government allows only state-monitored worship...The most prominent target has been the Falun Gong spiritual movement, banned in 1999 as a threat to public safety...The level of persecution aimed against unregistered Christians in China is high..."

--Does that sound vauglely familiar?

Australia: Spying On Its Own
Submitted by: Jerry Rowe

"The (Australian) federal government was today accused of spying on Australian citizens by intercepting private phone calls to the Norwegian ship involved in the asylum seeker crisis."

-- They have been doing this for years apparently, yet denied it. This was the logical companion to the gun ban there. What civil/human rights are to go next?

Something Has Changed and It's Not The Guns

"Guns haven't changed. Guns are pretty much the same as they were at the beginning of the century. They were easier to get then, but the mechanics have pretty much remained the same. Children haven't changed. They are still born without avarice, hatred, intolerance and bigotry. Could it be the parents who have changed?" - T.S. Eggleston
 

H.R.380 - Congress to Vote on Limiting Speech of 2nd Amendment Groups
Submitted by: Anonymous

Wednesday the 13th of February, Congress is going to vote on the "Shays-Meehan" Campaign Finance bill (H.R.380).

Shays-Meehan will make it illegal for organizations like the NRA, GOA, or any other non-profit group to communicate with its members about candidates 60 days before elections. That means your 2A group can't tell you what certain members of Congress are doing on issues that are important to you. That means you aren't allowed to be informed!

School Plots Raise Legal Issues
Submitted by: Newslinks Director

School-attack plots, such as those at New Bedford High School, are raising difficult legal questions about whether students should be charged for something that never happened.

"The big banana is whether these kids really intended to kill; that is going to be problematic for the jury," said Franklin Zimring, professor of law at Berkeley. "It's going to be extremely difficult for a group of adults to tell the difference between bluster and rhetoric and serious intentions to do lethal harm."

Co/Motion Conducts National Student Poster Contest -- Asks Youth to "Draw the Line on Gun Violence"

KABA NOTE: This is really an anti-LIFE poster contest: They are pushing the ridiculous notion that lawful citizens don't have the right to defend their own lives, and criminals have the right to take them.

SINGAPORE WAS the first state to find and break up an al-Qaida cell -- another win for the tiny Southeast Asian power that is famous for valuing order above liberty and for putting the interests of the community ahead of the rights of the individual.

AND YET -- The Singaporean authorities first confessed to being "stunned" that terrorists had been operating for years in their tiny, thoroughly policed city-state.

"How many times since 9/11, have you heard the phrase "whatever it takes," uttered by politicians, TV talking heads, friends and relatives?... Have the emotions of 9/11 left us incapable of cognitive thought?..."

"No one has ever bettered the core design of our U.S. Constitution: Individual liberty is our security; none of us is God; laws should be simple, few and obeyed; and most importantly, none of us can handle unchecked power. I like our president, but he's not God. When we reject what made us great and bow to anything or anybody else, we're repeating grim history."

Turner: 9-11 Was 'Act of Desperation'

Media mogul Ted Turner says the Sept. 11 attacks were an act of desperation, and the hijackers were "brave"... [he] also compared President Bush to Julius Caesar.

--Somebody once said that Ted Turner is living proof that you can be a multi-millionaire and still be an idiot.

KABA NOTE: Sounds like all the qualifications of the last several U.S. Presidents. Perhaps Turner will get elected and make Jane Fonda his "aide".

Chancey said in court documents that she was worried what her estranged husband might do if she showed up at the AA session. She received a protection order against Stephen G.
