The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, seems to have forgotten one of the most important items in an emergency supply kit... A rifle and handgun, with plenty of ammo and the knowledge to use them accurately and efficiently. But instead they recommend a whistle?!

"Despite a recent uptick in crime, California gun sales remained relatively stable last year, the California Department of Justice said Tuesday."

"State law limits handgun purchases to one a month, but there is no limit on multiple long gun purchases. Since January 2002, each handgun sale must include a trigger lock or safety box. And since last January, handgun buyers must show they can safely operate the handgun before they are allowed to make the purchase."

"Prime Minister Jean Chrétien is expected to lay down the law to his caucus Wednesday, warning that next week's controversial vote requesting more money for the embattled gun registry will be a vote of confidence."

"His edict is part of a vigorous lobbying effort to ensure the request for another $59-million in funding is approved and the gun registry remains intact."

"His warning means that any government MP voting against the estimates request could face disciplinary action, including being removed from caucus."

"On Tuesday, March 18th, 2003, Colorado Governor Bill Owens signed into law a bill that was 10 years in the making. From the first salvo, fired in 1994's session, to 2003, it has been a contentious battle, spanning the entire careers of politicians and forcing a wide-ranging debate on the subject of citizens carrying concealed handguns."

"Below is an overview of what SB24 will mean to Colorado."

"They're suing the District of Columbia, and they're shootin' mad.
While D.C. gun laws have been progressively tightened, local criminals rarely lack firepower when they feel they need it, either to wipe out enemies in the
drug business, or to threaten robbery victims. Despite the laws, the closure rate for homicides (most of them by gun) remains the biggest failure of D.C. Police Chief Charles Ramsey's tenure."

"Police chose to pursue a case against an Edmonton shopkeeper and not to charge the smash-and-grab thieves he's alleged to have fired on because they considered the gun complaint the 'more serious event,' says a cop spokesman."

-------
This says it all about the screwed up priorities of the police. They consider the gun charge more important than the fact that the shop owner was defending his life and property. They turn the criminal into the victim and turn morality and ethics of the law upside down.

"Quit fearing the people in government. Stop fearing their law enforcers. Stop fearing judges and prosecuting attorneys. The only way they can enforce their stupid jackass rules on the American people is if the American people let them. That is ultimately the only source of power - that which each man or woman surrenders to another. Don't surrender and others don't have any power."

"And, of course, governments will use arms to force compliance. If they do, you have the right - nay, you have the duty - to use arms to protect yourself when all else fails." ...

" 'If you liked the Patriot Act, you're going to love the sequel,' said George Getz, Libertarian Party communications director. 'Patriot II offers awesome government power, rapidly disappearing freedom, and an action-packed war on the Constitution. You'll be sitting on the edge of your seat as your liberties are stripped away.' The Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003 (DSEA) ... was secretly written by the Justice Department in January and has not yet been introduced in Congress."

“The great American gun debates are presently set in two extreme positions, for and against gun control measures, which obscures rather than clarifies. To move the conversation forward, it is essential that we focus on more nuanced and subtle discussion of particular policy interventions and the relationships among the different approaches. The overarching goal must be to link the policy research in order to promote more concrete and less-polarized thinking about guns,”

"...Washington exceeds its authority every day without a second thought. We now have innumerable agencies and departments spending billions and billions of dollars with no constitutional justification whatsoever."

"Worse, while assuming all this extra-constitutional authority, the government has abdicated its primary responsibility – providing for the common defense of the several states. One of the ways it has betrayed this mission is by opening up our borders to an immigration invasion."

"The specific source of concern is Senate Bill 1195... The bill would make it illegal for Illinoisans to own or take delivery of a long list of guns that includes 'any firearm having a caliber of 50 or greater.' "

"For those who aren't gunsmiths, that means while you would still be able to own a .410 shotgun or a 38-gauge shotgun - if you can find one - your trusty 10-gauge, 12-gauge, 20-gauge and even 28-gauge shotguns would all have to be turned over to police and destroyed."

"A Navy vet who shot a career burglar prowling near his toddler's bedroom had the charge against him reduced yesterday."

"The Brooklyn DA's office cut the charge from gun possession to attempted possession, which carries a 90-day maximum sentence."

"But now Dixon, 27, is deprived of the jury trial he wanted. On the lesser charge, he can only be tried by a judge."

"Dixon is charged with using an unlicensed handgun to wound Ivan Thompson, 40, a longtime criminal who broke into his home last year."

-------
This is a very dirty trick on the part of the prosecutor, as the DA's office probably realized that no jury in the world would ever convict Ron Dixon. Ergo, they had to think up another way to stick it to him.
