"But the weekends are still a time he spends paying small tribute to Roy Rogers and Tex Ritter."

"While anyone who purchases a gun from a licensed store or dealer must go through a background check as a precaution to keep firearms away from the certain people, some say last week's double homicide in Liberty proves weapons still manage to make their way into the wrong hands."

"Background checks can only go so far, Marhulik said. Many guns can be purchased legally through person-to-person transactions."

"Homeland Security Chief Tom Ridge has come out and stated that arming pilots with firearms: "doesn’t make a lot of sense to me." Considering the alternatives to arming pilots, leaving flight crews defenseless or giving them an ineffective non-lethal defensive tool, the only thing that doesn’t make sense is Tom Ridge’s position."

"In Sarah Thompson's recent opinion article ("No Proven Benefit to Gun Safety Classes," Feb. 10) she admonishes legislators charged with making policy decisions to shun emotion, hysteria and spurious "common sense" substituting instead, facts and research. While I applaud Ms. Thompson's pleadings for factually based decision making, her arguments suggest that she has failed to follow her own wisdom."

KABA NOTE: Sarah, if you'd like to run a response here, you've got the floor.

"Without consulting the populace, without consulting the judges of the lower courts, or the attorneys, the clerks, or even their own advisory committees, eight of the nine state supreme court justices enacted a plan last fall that effectively confers on themselves and hundreds of their humbler brethren immunity from being judged."

"The bill strengthens a 1987 law that gives state government control over gun regulations."

"Sen. Leslie Byrne, D-Falls Church, said lawmakers made a bad situation worse by effectively creating one set of rules for visitors to public buildings and another
for the employees who work there."

"'This doesn't help the localities, and this puts public employees in danger,' Byrne said."

Really?

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
