"I am writing in response to the Feb 3 editorial for a reinstatement of the assault weapons ban. I was disgusted at your manipulation of the Second Amendment of our Constitution! You stated, 'There's no need for the citizenry to be armed with such lethal firepower. Hunters don't need them. Gun toting urbanites don't need them, either.' You foolishly present instances on why Americans 'don't need assault weapons' but fail to mention the real reason Americans need them and are granted the right to have them!"

"'I've been through Y2K and I've been through 9/11. I have never seen people so afraid as what we are seeing right now,' said gun shop owner Scott Moss recently. With more guns per capita – easily 250 million privately owned ones – and certainly more people in prisons than any other democracy, the intriguing question in this still worsening economic calamity is: If Americans found the courage for political rebellion now, would it preempt massive criminal violence, social havoc and armed rebellion later?" ...

"I was appalled to read about the man in Hampton who was assaulted with a clock radio and robbed ... This is a senseless act of violence that must not be tolerated. Fortunately, the Second Amendment ... does not apply to possession of such lethal weapons as clock radios. These deadly weapons must not be allowed in the hands of any citizens."

"Therefore, I call on all liberals to rise up and demand that the government outlaw the possession of clock radios and call for their immediate recall before anyone else is injured ... But why stop with clock radios? Why not ban all alarm clocks? Wait, my microwave oven has an alarm, too. Even my watch has an alarm.

Today, with a H/T to Larry at KABA for reminding me by posting this link, (http://www.d-n-i.net/dni/strategy-and-force-employment/fourth-generation-warfare-manuals/), I'm going to give you a brief outline of 4GW and then the links to pursue other reading.

The pair was all smiles after their twenty-minute meeting telling reporters, 'There's a number of things that we're going to work on together, trying to keep illegal guns out of the hands of criminals ...'
