"Whenever someone like me complains about the assault on freedoms launched by current Attorney General John Ashcroft, someone will rise up and scream that all of Ashcroft’s extremism is justified by the war on terrorism."

" 'We have to take these steps to prevent another September 11,' some flag-waving, Johnny-come-lately patriot will proclaim. 'I’m willing to make the sacrifice to keep America safe.' "

"Well I hate to break it to all you duct-tape hoarding, canned food stockpiling sheep who don’t mind following somebody into oblivion as long as he waves the American flag, but surrendering your freedoms to Uncle Sam ain’t gonna save you."

Liberals trade crusading anger for hardheaded realism

"As the inestimable economist John Lott has shown, the study behind this flagrantly dishonest 'cold hard fact' assumed that anyone killed by a gun in or near a home where anyone owned a gun was, therefore, killed by 'a gun in the home.' The study merely attests to the fact that people who live in high-crime neighborhoods tend to own guns. This is like the joke about diets causing people to be fat because most people on diets are fat. Or, as Lott says, on that theory of causation, hospitals must cause people to die because lots of people who die have been hospitalized recently. (Lott exposes dozens of such phony 'studies' and shibboleths about guns in his splendid new book, 'The Bias Against Guns.')"

" 'Guns, Freedom, and Terrorism' is a fact-filled volume that tackles a number of subjects surrounding gun rights, including: arming airline pilots, animal rights extremism, media bias, gun-show prohibition, self-defense, and others. Its convincing arguments will cause even the most adamant gun-control supporter to consider the values our forefathers fought to protect – liberty, self-government and justice."

Why is it that women are indoctrinated to believe that a court order and a promise will protect them from a violent significant other, but a firearm is more than likely to harm them?

"I do not watch a lot of television. But the shows I do watch often times remind me that there is a lot of hope for our message of libertarianism. I enjoy the political overtones in 'The Simpsons' and especially in 'South Park.' However, there is another highly popular company that tells us very openly how political correctness has run amuck and how government can be too intrusive. This company, World Wrestling Entertainment, has been one I have followed since my childhood."

"The threat of terrorism is being cited to justify ratcheting up federal police-state measures at airports. ...The new security program, known as CAPPS II — Computer Assisted Passenger Prescreening System — will rate each passenger’s risk potential according to a threat level color code: green, yellow, or red. This appears to be part of a piecemeal approach to implement the controversial Total Information Awareness (TIA) program, which has run into considerable opposition."

"The suits are nothing more than a political means to try to implement ill-conceived gun control lawmakers can't ram through state legislative houses. Many of us are accustomed to lawmakers being nutcases, but for the media not to report on this significant news shows a profound bias in firearm coverage."

"For more than 40 years, kids have taken to the fields and woods with their model rockets for that burst of sparks, spirals of smoke and the "FFSSSSSSTTT" that is the unmistakable sound of approval for countless hours of labor and hope."

"But model rocket makers say the days for their hobby are numbered, thanks to little-noted provisions in the Homeland Security Act that classifies the solid fuel used in model rocket motors as an explosive material and imposes new controls on interstate shipment of the fuel known as ammonium perchlorate composite propellant, or APCP."

"The new rules don't take effect until May, but United Parcel Service already has stopped shipping rocket engines, and hobby store supplies are drying up."
