Ending Public School Violence
Submitted by: Newslinks Director

"The real question is: Why do parents—especially those in the inner cities of America—continue to support the very idea of public schooling, when they can so readily see how destructive it is for their children? If parents want the best education possible for their children (and most do)—there is one—and only one—solution: End all government involvement in education by separating school and state, as our ancestors separated church and state." - Jacob G. Hornberger

"Should we remove all flashlights, batteries, fire extinguishers, fire axes, fire hoses, automatic fire suppression sprinklers, and smoke alarms from our homes, our business, and our schools? The answer to any of these questions, obviously, is a resounding NO! ...

So, using that same reasoning, why do our political leaders find it so aberrant that FBI and SLED certified and licensed law-abiding adults be allowed to have their guns with them when they drop their child off at their school?"
 

Should the Senate Approve Campaign Finance Reform?

Yes - "Pass this bill to rein in special interests and reduce the role of money in politics. The House passed it by a vote of 240-189. Now the Senate should send this bill to the White House."

NO - "Stop this unconstitutional attempt to limit political speech. This bill does not contain real reform. Instead, this bill strips citizens of their political rights and unconstitutionally attempts to regulate political speech."

VOTE.COM will send your vote to Congress and President Bush.

"Guns are regularly changing hands in London for only £200, highlighting the frightening spiral in violent crime, says Met Commissioner Sir John Stevens."

--But this is England. You know? No guns, no crime, right? Somehow a cliche comes to mind ... "If guns are outlawed, then only outlaws..." LOL!!

London, Washington DC... hmmmm, what do they have in common?

Youngsters eagerly looking forward to deer season typically pepper their hunting fathers with lots of questions. Monday morning, 11-year-old Tyler Kelly hit his pop, Tony Kelly, with a good one.

Tyler wanted to know if it was OK to pray for rain.

He's not alone in his worries. Many of us are anxiously looking skyward, hoping for salvation from this drought and its many problems, among them a serious threat to the state's most popular hunting season.

The newest addition to my modest gun collection carries one of the most famous monikers in the shooting world. It's a Winchester, with a dark walnut stock and deeply blued barrel and receiver.

There is a big difference between this rifle and its popular cousins, such as the Model 94 and Model 70. It's powered by air.

A few months ago, Jeremy Teela and Jay Hakkinen were walking through a metal detector in the Munich airport when they triggered the alarm system. German authorities made them empty their pockets and, whaddya know, out spilled a few rounds of ammunition.

Gulp.

As you can imagine, the Germans weren't amused. They immediately hauled the two Americans into a room for interrogation. They wanted to know whether they were carrying guns. They wanted to know their purpose in Germany.

"He's always been a bad kid," said Jeremy... "In a weird way, this isn't a surprise at all."

-- And so this 'bad kid' killed a police officer during a routine traffic stop...with a knife! What are the gun-banners going to do now? Blame the perp, OR, start adding 'assault knives' to their list of weapons to be banned? I think I know the answer...

"Ever wonder how to trace the trail of that spam, track its source, and shut it down once and for all? These days, so does the U.S. government.

E-mail messages yielded a few clues to the location of abducted Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. But investigators complain the search for Pearl is hampered by difficulties pinpointing where the e-mail originated. Authorities have released few details, but apparently the e-mail was prepared and sent in a way that made it difficult to track."

State motor vehicle agencies want Congress to standardize the license, share more driver data between states and mandate techniques such as biometrics to "uniquely identify" each of America's 228 million drivers.

The group behind the push for what critics derisively call a "national ID" is the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA), which met last weekend in Arlington, Virginia, to figure out how to talk Congress into handing them $100 million for the project.

The chairman of a House panel overseeing the District warned yesterday that city police may be going too far with the planned use of video surveillance cameras, potentially threatening personal privacy.

The police department reactivated a command center at its headquarters Tuesday that would serve as the hub for video feeds from more than 200 cameras that will monitor major streets, transit stations, federal landmarks and buildings and schools.

"For the fashion conscious gun enthusiast, camouflage is definitely in this year. At a recent gun show held at a suburban mall, there was enough jungle fatigue on display to give combat flashbacks to guys who've never even served in the military.

I know, because I was there with someone suffering from one. My friend, Bill, was sighing like a bobby soxer who'd just met Frank Sinatra over an M60 machine gun that an automatic weapons dealer had put up for sale."

This website provides the historic guidelines for journalistsm in the U.S. It is plain to see that many "Newspapers" do not adhere to these guidelines. Perphaps a link could be provided in letters to the editors of these rags (LA, NY Times...etc) to remind them of their duty. As a bonus, try to find how many of these conditions were violated in reporting of the Virginia Law School shooting by the NY Times.

"The Brady gun check works," they proclaim.

"Authorities said a Massachusetts man, who attempted to buy a handgun at a local shop, turned out to be a fugitive from justice whose name came up in the FBI files when a background check on him was done."

KABA NOTE: Only a minute few of all the background checks ever done have netted a criminal -- and of those, an even minuter few were followed-up on. The Brady check does NOT work. Meanwhile, thousands of law-abiding citizens have been delayed and denied their right due to administration errors.

-- Legally armed citizen shot 8 times in "friendly fire" while helping officers.

"Stephen Flynn was shot in the midst of a virtual war zone, an injury eclipsed by the death of a Marion County sheriff's deputy slain moments before by suspects toting assault rifles.

Four months after the Near-Northside incident, police have yet to review and make public the evidence that suggests two officers mistakenly fired on Flynn amid the chaos and confusion of Sept. 17."

"Two police detectives were in the right place at the right time last night when they stopped a man in the Westford Valley Marketplace II parking lot from stabbing another man."

KABA NOTE: Key words: "at the right place at the right time."

Also note: These brave officers went above and beyond the call of duty for this citizen -- they have no duty to protect the public.

"The death of a man shot by police with a Taser stun gun highlights the potential dangers of weapons that are considered nonlethal, civil liberties groups say."

-- Our friends at the ACLU and Amnesty International want to "protect" everyone from every conceivable danger at every possible moment - regardless of how many innocent people are injured or killed while doing so.

"Whatever you do, don't tune out on the issue of campaign finance reform because it seems complex or esoteric. The House's passage of the Shays-Meehan campaign finance bill portends deep trouble for this constitutional republic."

"So, for example, if a group of concerned citizens wants to inform voters that a candidate is flagrantly nonchalant about the Second Amendment, it will only be allowed to do so prior to the final 60 days of the general election." - David Limbaugh

In Virginia, common citizens are not allowed to carry concealed in restaurants.

However, DEA agents from out-of state feel they can do as they please. Drink, carry a gun, get drunk, shoot up the parking lot.

It happened 3 years ago in Hampton, VA.

Now, it's happened in Roanoke, at Valley View Mall, where guns are banned. This time, an unarmed man died.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power." [Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)]
