The Fourth Branch of Government: Part 2

How much money is your freedom worth?

No this isn't a pitch... I'm not soliciting contributions for anything here, it's a simple and meaningful question that needs to be answered. And the reason is that too many of our "Rights-Preservation" Groups are just as concerned about how much money they have as they are about the rights they purport to preserve.

UK: Killer Stunguns

"POWERFUL stun guns are being smuggled into Britain from America - and The Mirror got hold of one for just £250."

In Britain, stun guns are in the same legal category as machine guns and pistols - meaning you can get up to ten years for possession of one.

No-one seems to have told the criminals, though.
 

Gunfight Packs New Heat

March 19 — Quietly and deliberately, gun rights supporters are waging a campaign to liberalize state laws governing concealed weapons, and they say Sept. 11 may have helped their cause.

Gun control activists say these efforts take advantage of a national tragedy. Said Luis Tolley, legislative director for the Brady Campaign, "We know if they succeed they'll try to eliminate all restrictions. The objective is to let people carry a gun wherever they want any time they want."

John R. Lott Jr.: "Yet, even though the largest mass killing in American history was committed just six months ago without one gun or one bullet, some think the threat of terrorism requires more gun control.

Unfortunately, instead of calls for more gun control, the reverse is needed."
 

One Little, Two Little, Three Little Guns Laws...

These misguided souls have been conned into a very unreasonable fear of firearms and actually believe that the laws of the animate, that is human beings, can in any way affect the harm wrought by their use or misuse. Take a moment, and think about that. The way firearms are portrayed, you'd think they form little bands and rove the countryside in search of someone upon whom they might inflict harm or injury. This strikes me as so very odd.

A careful read of this article reveals the governments extent in snooping. They must have broken in to the suspects computers with out thier consent or knowledge.

"Feds running the egroup allowing child porn to be posted in the first place for a full year is rather disturbing. The Feds, once they hacked a suspect computer, then went to that persons associates and email list and hacked those boxes too."

The Omaha City Council has proposed an ordinance that would grant authority to the chief of police to deny a conceable firearm permit based on any reason whatsoever. If passed into law, this ordinance would place the fate of YOUR ability to own a conceable firearm in the hands of the chief of police - and would allow the permit to be denied for ANY reason!

This proposed ordinance is set to be heard by the council today, Tuesday, March 19, 2002.

KABA NOTE: Yes, this was yesterday. If anyone has heard anything on this bill, please post it.

Not specifically on firearms, but deals with the dumbing down of people.

People make decisions on EMOTIONS not on reason.

"Today, political correctness has become judge and jury of our thoughts. It condemns free thought and along with it, deductive reasoning. It has become the modern version of the inquisition. Its consequence has been the death of literacy."

"It is a culture that is dominated by hype and emotion and ruled by the crowd. It is devoid of any intellect and reason."

Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. reported a third-quarter profit of $1.27 million that was buoyed by booming gun sales.

The company, formerly called Saf-T-Hammer Corp., said it was benefiting from a broad increase in gun sales nationwide, and the apparent end of a backlash against the company over a safety deal with the government two years ago.

"The positive trend is continuing," said Robert Scott, president of the company. "The overall industry is doing well and we've been acepted back by much of the industry as members of the family."
