"There's been an explosion in street crime," Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir John Stevens told parliamentarians on Tuesday.

Police said that violent crime had erupted in the past year and particularly since September 11 when hundreds of officers were moved to guard security targets.

("Security targets" meaning "The Politicians" who are gaurded by men with guns, while the "loyal subjects" continue to be defenseless prey.)

The NYPD says it has not yet seized any Clubs that have been turned into shotguns.

Last summer, about 1,400 drought-stricken farmers in the Klamath Basin got sucker-punched by "scientists" at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Marine Fisheries Service — literally.

Their irrigation taps were turned off because "bureaucrats presumed" that any release of water would result in too-low water levels in Klamath Lake and too-slow flows of the Klamath River for the threatened salmon and sucker fish that reside therein.

The International Olympic Committee's coordination commission told USOC president Sandy Baldwin that many nations had suffered and that allowing the American team to carry the flag would not be proper. Baldwin told the IOC that position was "clearly understandable."

The "International Olympic Committee" touts themselves as "the supreme authority of the Olympic Movement". You can CONTACT THEM HERE.

The California Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday on whether cities and counties can ban firearms sales at gun shows on their fairgrounds and other government properties.

Oklahoma City Council members, concerned over the design of a proposed Bass Pro Shops in Bricktown, were told Tuesday they shouldn't be scared by the store's size and suburban-style surface parking.

"Bass Pro isn't just retail -- you can eat there, climb rocks, use the shooting range. It's an entertainment center in its own right." -- John Gossling

Owners of local sporting goods stores have complained about the city using public money to help launch a competitor.

As you know, the State of Vermont purchased the Champion lands, now known as the West Mountain Wildlife Management Area, for the purpose of preserving them for traditional uses, including hunting and trapping. Environmental activists are working hard to keep in place an easement that would allow them to close large areas of this parcel to these uses!...

The militia is often discussed in the pro-gun foundation where I work. Usually I’m on the other side of the fence arguing against its existence. Being young, maybe I just don’t understand. I’ve never felt the need to enlist into a military service that does not even exist in any measurable way. I even remember saying just six months ago “Why do we need a militia? We’re the leaders of the free world. We’re the United States of America.” - Jessica Mainard, Collegiate Programs Director, SAF

PALATINE Village officials are drafting an ordinance to regulate home-based gun dealers by requiring them to have a local business license.

The Police, Policy and Code Service Committee Monday recommended that the Village Council ask Village Manager Michael J. Cassady to craft an ordinance. The council is expected to vote on the proposal Monday.

"It would be a benefit so police and firefighters and people know if their next-door neighbor is selling guns out of their garage."

The government banned Yemenis on Tuesday from carrying guns on city streets, and urged security officials to do all they can to enforce the prohibition.

Guns, ammunition and explosives are sold freely in Yemen, a largely tribal society where weapons are carried openly and people often settle feuds with guns. "The problem" grew during the 1994 civil war when many arms were smuggled into the country.

"In the minds of the founders, liberty, with all of its intrinsic risks, was more desirable than material prosperity if accompanied with despotism or collectivism. So strong was their desire that they were willing to give up the latter in order to procure the former for themselves and their posterity.

"Bread and circuses are far more important than Rights to most Americans. Dumbed down education system helps this along as we move towards socialism." - Chuck Baldwin

"As if losing power wasn't bad enough, some area residents are losing valuables as burglars take advantage."

"because the lights were out Friday night, he and his wife went out to dinner. That's when the burglars struck."

KABA NOTE: Try to have a backup lighting system, or shop during the day. Order delivered food, send one person for takeout, or eat out of cans. During a blackout, someone should be home to fend off intruders.

System Intended to Protect Children Under Fire for 'Overzealousness'

"Home schooling, devout religious practices, persistent diaper rash, scratches from a new pet puppy, milk intolerance, cystic fibrosis, a broken home heating system, and messy housekeeping have all been documented not just as abuse or neglect, but as the reason for taking a child."

-- Soon, they may take your child because you taught him about the 2nd amendment, or how to shoot an 'evil gun'. We all know of course that 'the government' knows better how to raise your children than you do.

KABA NOTE: This isn't "overzealousness", it's criminal abduction by the state.

Four days of strong sales plus near-record attendance and an extraordinary display of industry unity highlighted the 2002 SHOT Show ¾ the second best attended show in its 24-year history.

Unusually high final-day registration lifted buyer attendance to within 200 of the all-time record. “I have never seen anything like this! Ten minutes after the show opened our booth was so crowded you couldn’t see through it,” said Dwight Van Brunt of Kimber. Such enthusiastic responses were widespread.

KABA NOTE: All the "doctors" who are behind this rediculous sham of a bill, are violating their oath to save lives.
