Plaintiffs' lawyers tout products liability cases as a remedy that allows injured poor people to take on powerful corporations, but they can't credibly make that claim with respect to certain recent suits against gun manufacturers.

"If you think President Bush’s tax cuts will save you money, guess again, Libertarians say, because the long-term spending increases in his new budget outnumber tax cuts by a ratio of 10 to 1."

" 'Celebrating Bush’s tax cuts is like thanking a pickpocket for returning $10 of the $100 he just stole,' said Libertarian Party Chair Geoffrey Neale." ...
 

The other Lott controversy

"But as he prepares to release a new book, "Bias Against Guns," next month, Lott must grapple with an emerging controversy – brought to the public eye by the blogosphere – that goes to the heart of his academic integrity." ...

"Assuming the survey data was lost in a computer crash, it is still remarkable that Lott could not produce a single, contemporaneous scrap of paper proving the survey's existence, such as the research protocol or survey instrument. After Lindgren's report was published, a Minnesota gun-rights activist named David Gross came forward, claiming he was surveyed in 1997. Some have said that Gross's account proves that the survey was done. I think skepticism is warranted."

"He had smashed his way through the bedroom door and broken the locks off the cabinet. He was very determined."

-------
More proof that a person determined to commit suicide will find a way, even through a locked gun cabinet. So much for the "Lock your gun up so it's inaccessible to anyone, including you in times of need" theory.

"A robber armed with a machine-gun pistol has staked out bank parking lots in Sacramento County recently to prey on people carrying business deposit bags, authorities announced Tuesday."

"Since December, the bandit has pulled off nine robberies, some of them for thousands of dollars, police and sheriff’s officials said. Nobody has been hurt during the daytime robberies, but investigators are worried that could change."

"Under the guidelines, all 31,000 Permits to Carry Firearms Outside of Residence (PTCFOR) previously issued to licensed firearm holders have been revoked. The PNP Chief emphasized that 'possession and carrying of firearms is a privilege granted by the State to its citizens for their individual protection against all threats of lawlessness and security.' "

-------
No wonder that country is a violent, backwater hellhole, they don't even consider the right to defend oneself inalienable - just another privilege granted by the almighty state!

"Two exactly identical pieces of legislation have been submitted to the Georgia Legislature that would significantly limit the ability of law enforcement to search and retrieve illegal firearms from vehicles. These bills, supported by the NRA, would effectively make it legal for non-permitted holders of firearms to carry them in moving vehicles and would prohibit Georgia law enforcement from searching for these weapons even with probable cause."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Regarding Don Shaw's column on gun control: Of course the liberal left wants us to believe it just wants sensible controls and restrictions. That is so liberals can continue to pass ever more restrictive measures and laws, just as Shaw suggests.

Let's be clear -- for him and those like him, there are never enough laws, never enough restrictions.

"Just like today's Arab-Americans, Coble said, the vast majority of the Japanese-Americans of that day were not enemies of America."

"Still, FDR had to consider the nation's security."

" 'Some probably were intent on doing harm to us,' he said, 'just as some of these Arab-Americans are probably intent on doing harm to us.' "

"No gun was found." ...

"Earlier in the morning, George praised the 'responsible' students who made the report. She also explained the campus lockdown was a safety measure so a safe and proper search could be conducted."

Yes, these "responsible" students have been indoctrinated into the paranoid Stasi mentality, but are praised for inciting panic and causing a lockdown of the school.
 

Liberty Amendment

"Today the concepts of rights and property ownership are completely arbitrary. Congress, the courts, presidents and bureaucrats arbitrarily “legislate” on a daily basis, seeking only the endorsement of the majority. Although the republic was designed to protect the minority against the dictates of the majority, today we find the reverse. The republic is no longer recognizable."

-------
Rep. Ron Paul gave this speech when he introduced the Liberty Amendment last week in Congress.

The speech is long. Yet in my opinion it presents the best list of 'democratic socialism' which has overtaken our land. We are no longer a Republic. We are a majority democratic tyrant.

For a root cause of our troubles, including the loss of our firearm rights, look to this speech. It gives answers.
 

UT: No to Guns in Schools

"We believe ...introducing guns into schools in the possession of permit-holders makes schools more dangerous rather than safer. If a loaded gun were left unattended or a permit-holder somehow lost control of it in other circumstances, that weapon in the wrong hands could produce a tragedy."

"Frankly, this risk outweighs the possibility that criminals will be deterred by the knowledge that permit-holders may be present in a school. The chance of something going wrong because of guns brought into schools by permit-holders is more likely than the chance that permit-holders would be able to stop a Columbine-style attack or some other crime."

-------
Permit holders are responsible and skilled with their guns. The chances of them leaving a gun unattended for someone to grab are slim to none. The massacre at the Appalachian School of Law in Virginia was stopped by a gun owner. However, these people would apparently rather have a completely disarmed school populace threatened by a gunman than have a permit holder on the premises who just might save a life.

"When Social Security was first proposed, there was a huge controversy over whether the number might become part of a national identification system. Even the most ardent advocates conceded that the Act would never have passed if it was to be part of such a system, yet here we are, three quarters of a century later, and that is exactly the case. How did it come to pass? When I received my first SS card, it was written across it, that it was not to be used for identification purposes."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them. — George Mason, "Remarks on Annual Elections for the Fairfax Independent Company" in The Papers of George Mason, 1725-1792, ed Robert A. Rutland (Chapel Hill, 1970).
