Nothing sends a chill down the spine of an ambitious politician like being labeled soft on crime.
And in the highly combative race among Democrats in the primary for the 5th Congressional District seat, that's the label that Rahm Emanuel is working overtime to pin on Nancy Kaszak.

The question is: Does the label fit, or is Emanuel just a shrewd negative campaigner? Both candidates have similar anti-crime platforms, which lean heavily on toughening gun control laws.

Gun-rights backers push for reciprocity among states

"It's part of a larger campaign of essentially letting everybody carry every gun they want, anywhere they want, and getting rid of all restrictions," said Luis Tolley, director of state legislation for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

"They'll do anything to take away police discretion and force police to issue permits, and once they get that, they then chip away at all limits, including reciprocity, as their strategy," Mr. Tolley said.

KABA NOTE: Just for once, they got something right! Congradulations!

"They're fighting mad and they have a right to be. For anyone who isn't mentally incapacitated by ABC-CBS-NBC news, or CNN, you should know that Americans are not a free people and we do not live in a free nation. Government has separated from the people and become Planet Washington D.C.

You should also know who is at fault besides the government ... YOU." - by Dorothy Anne Seese

An irresponsible report on "terrorism" from the Brady Center - By Michael Long:

Handgun Control, Inc. --now known as the benign-sounding "Brady Campaign"-- joined the effort with the December release of a report claiming to illustrate how terrorists use our "weak" gun laws to "amass" caches of firearms.
 

Soldiers to 'defend U.S. borders'
Submitted by: Doug Charette

The establishment of a U.S. military command tasked with homeland defense will lead to a bureaucratic clash between the military and other U.S. agencies involved in domestic security matters. Eager to expand its own budget, the military may try to assume responsibilities for missions already covered by other agencies such as the U.S. Border Patrol, which is funded by the Justice Department...

In order to overcome the territorial disputes, efforts at integration may occur. Ultimately, the U.S. military may attempt to absorb other security branches.

"How low can you go? That seems to be the question with regard to the people whose fondest wish is to have all the guns in the hands of criminals (with or without badges). Every time we look around they're carrying the dispute to a lower level. Now they're trying to equate those who wish to retain their constitutional right to be armed with Taliban and Al Qaida terrorist killers. They want people to think that it is committing treason to be for reaffirming our Second Amendment rights." - Ray Thomas

IL: O'Malley Surging While Daley Attacks Law-abiding Gun Owners

Some good news. Internal polling shows O'Malley surging among informed voters. Note I say "informed" voters. Why is this important? Because they are the ones who actually go to the polls and vote in a primary. I don't care if Jim Ryan is 40 points ahead of the pack as long he is getting his points from those who are not going to bother to vote.

Stay the course, put your O'Malley signs up, stickers on, change your voicemail to include a plug for O'Malley and get like minded folks to VOTE.

"The Pentagon is proposing the creation of a four-star command to oversee federal troops engaged in "homeland defense" activity on American soil. While CINC regional chiefs have long coordinated deployments overseas, none exist for North America. Soon, however, the circle will be complete, and the noose will be around our necks." --Paul Fallavollita
