"The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act would insulate gun manufacturers from liability when their products are misused. It would block future civil lawsuits against them and kill any already working their way through the courts."

"A federal bill that would allow retired and off-duty police officers to carry concealed weapons has the support of local lawmakers and law enforcement officers."

How hypocritical that this sheriff would advocate self defense for retired LEOs, but not for law-abiding civilians! Does being a LEO automatically make one an elite citizen entitled to defend oneself with a firearm, while the rest suffer?

"The $300 billion deficit proposed by King George II is so laughable that even the Clintonista Robert Reich lashed out at both parties and the president for excessive spending. When I wrote the article in November, I was hopeful that the Republicans would at least make an attempt to control spending. After all, I am always willing to believe someone until they lie to me. ... The Republicans have FAILED, and have proven to be no friend of Liberty."

A good example of this loss of value are the large number of people, who for a few dollars or a few seconds of fame, are willing to exploit their personal privacy and that of their loved ones, by telling their most intimate of thoughts, most painful experiences, most degrading self-revelations to anyone who might tune-in to our television or radio airwaves."

"California Attorney General Bill Lockyer should realize that he not only must enforce the law, but be sure his department obeys it as well."

"At issue is the 1993 Brady Bill federal gun-control law that set up a nationwide database for gun purchasers. For every new gun purchased, the gun dealer checks the purchaser's name with the National Instant Check System. If the purchaser is denied, such as for being a felon, the gun is not sold. The federal government then destroys the data."
