"According to the latest figures, only 11 killings have been recorded in the borough so far this year — a big decline even from last year’s record low of 28 at the corresponding time."

"Greg Ahenakew's got a gun. None of your business where he keeps it - he hasn't registered it, and he isn't about to."

"The vice-chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations is taking his scofflaw stance a little further than the average mad-as-hell Canadian gun owner. The FSIN launches a lawsuit this week against Ottawa to win an exemption for treaty natives from the feds' gun-control law."

"We're talking about a law that violates our fundamental treaty rights to hunt, to bear arms," said Ahenakew.

"Treaty law is basic law, and it comes before the Firearms Act. This is an unjust law, passed without our consent."

"Maryland Republicans have distanced themselves from a Montgomery County party member who distributed a leaflet at a legislative committee meeting this week depicting three state lawmakers in Nazi uniforms standing in front of a concentration camp inmate."

"U.S. Rep. Constance A. Morella, who represents most of the county, called for Augustus Alzona to resign from the Montgomery County Republican Central Committee, saying she was "appalled and outraged."

KABA NOTE: Freedom of Speech? Uh huh. Tell the truth creatively and so-called "peers" who can't handle the truth want your blood. Welcome to the New Amerika.

"Alzona distributed copies of the flier Thursday to members of the House Judiciary Committee at a hearing on gun control measures."

And he's holding his ground and will not resign. "I know what hate speech is, and this was not that. It appears that there is a thinly veiled attempt to drive pro-gun conservatives like me out of the party," Alzona said.

"The United States Government's top lawyer has said that officials have the right to lie to American citizens, telling the US Supreme Court that misleading statements are sometimes needed to protect foreign policy interests."

"It's easy to imagine an infinite number of situations where the government might legitimately give out false information," the Solicitor-General, Theodore Olson, told the court on Monday.

"It's an unfortunate reality that the issuance of incomplete information and even misinformation by government may sometimes be perceived as necessary to protect vital interests."

"A compromise concealed weapons bill could be introduced as early as this week. The bill would do the following:

* Set up a statewide system in which county sheriffs would issue permits.

* Require an applicant to pass a background check and show proof of gun safety training.

* Allow sheriffs to deny a permit if they have documentable proof the applicant is a risk to themselves or others. Anyone denied a permit could appeal the sheriff's decision.

* Require individuals to apply for and receive a permit in the county where they live.

We have never committed a crime, lied to them or given them any reason to mistrust us, yet they question our every action. We are searched when we travel, they read our e-mails, tap our phones, confiscate our nail clippers invade our private lives from bedroom to nursery, and generally treat us like the criminals they swore to protect us from.

Once great masters of our own domain, we have become mere pawns on someone else's political chessboard. And they are doing it all for our own good.

alcohol despite opposition from Ohio's law enforcement officials, doctors, and public health experts."

"69% of Ohioans also do not want lawmakers to make it easier for concealed weapons to be carried in public according to an Ohio poll

KABA NOTE: It wouldn't matter if 100% of the people wanted X if X was a violation of fundamental rights. In a Constitutional Republic like ours, rights trump the wishes of fools.

"After seven years of battles, the Senate, in a vote of 60 to 40, passed and sent to the president the McCain-Feingold campaign finance bill that is designed to change the way political campaigns are financed."

"President Bush has not indicated whether or not he will sign the bill, but party leaders on both sides expect that he will. The House passed similar legislation earlier this year."

KABA NOTE: President Bush said in no uncertain terms -- during his campaign -- that he would not sign a campaign finance bill that had several characteristics this bill has. "Read my lips" must run in the family; our money says he'll sign it and prove himself every bit the liar his daddy was.

"he government of China has just issued this year's 'Human Rights Record of the United States.' Much of the report consists of pseudo-factoids created by Leftist interest groups, allegedly showing what a terrible country America is. The leadoff item is an extended complaint about American gun ownership."

"The Chinese government frets that 'The United States is the country with the biggest number of private guns.' We are also, of course, the country with the biggest number of private books, private churches, private newspapers, private computers, private single-family homes, and other tools and incidents of freedom. It is no coincidence that America is a simultaneously a well-armed and a prosperous nation, for both traits stem from America's culture of freedom and individualism."

"Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see that a pilot shooting a terrorist in a cockpit is any more dangerous than air marshals having a gunfight out amongst the passengers. And certainly a gun in the cockpit is less dangerous than being blown out of the sky by an F-16."

"This was the reclusive world that officer Donald J. Marquez walked into Monday night to arrest Wolk for failing to answer a housing court subpoena."

"About 10 p.m., Marquez knocked on the door, then pleaded with Wolk to go peacefully. Finally, he broke down Wolk's apartment door with a sledgehammer. He was immediately greeted with gunfire, wounded and fell in the front vestibule. By the time it was over, both Wolk and the officer were dead."

Don't bother with this review--go read this book! Yes, that gives away my feelings on The State Vs. the People, but it isn't often that I think as highly of a book as I do this one. Written by Claire Wolfe and Aaron Zelman, TSVTP documents the rise of the American police state in very clear, detailed fashion, moving swiftly through eleven chapters (and six appendices).

"I have heard a number of opinions about the new color-coded threat rating imposed by Uber Kounsellor Ashcroft and the Ministry of Homeland Security. These opinions seem to fall into two general categories. About half the people think that it's another offensive indication that the government believes all of us to be little more than children, children who do not think and therefore need guidance and a firm discipline, which they intend to provide."

"Chicago's revised anti-gang loitering ordinance survived its first legal challenge Tuesday, when a judge ruled that City Hall followed the legal 'road map' drawn by the U.S. Supreme Court."

"If such guidance is labeled a 'roadmap,' then the Chicago framers of the revised Gang Loitering Ordinance knew how to read the map," Associate Circuit Judge Mark J. Ballard wrote in a five-page opinion.

"Arguing on behalf of three Pilsen men arrested for flashing gang signs in a designated 'hot spot,' the public defender's office had argued that the new ordinance was even worse than the old one, which was tossed out by the nation's highest court."

"State lawyers battling to save a ban against concealed firearms will argue today that nowhere does Ohio's 151-year-old constitution suggest that citizens have the right to carry a concealed weapon."

"Meanwhile, an Ohio House committee in Columbus could vote as early as today on a bill that would permit most Ohioans to carry concealed weapons."

"Supporters say Ohioans should be free to carry the guns they own."

"The state senator who campaigned against the citizen initiative that mandated background checks at Colorado gun shows probably wishes he had been more successful."

"Sen. Jim Dyer, shopping at the Tanner Gun Show over the weekend, was told he could not buy a weapon because he failed a background check. Apparently, the Littleton Republican has an outstanding warrant in Denver for driving without insurance."

"Here's the problem: Dyer was issued the ticket only because he couldn't locate his insurance card after a car accident. He later showed police his proof of insurance, and the case was closed."

"Except it wasn't closed on a police computer database, which Dyer discovered in front of laughing gun show patrons."

"From California to New Jersey, public schools are banning the children's game of 'cops and robbers' and threatening students with expulsion out of a fear that even imaginary weapons pose a threat."

"For example, at Lewis Elementary School in Fort Irwin, Calif., one father removed his 9-year-old son from class after the school principal threatened to expel the boy if he didn't stop playing cops and robbers on the playground."

"In Sayreville, N.J., a 5-year-old boy was suspended for playing the game at recess. The Rutherford Institute, an international legal and educational organization, is representing the boy, arguing that school-administered punishment has changed for the worse."

"The vast majority of states currently are considering a piece of model legislation that critics charge could turn out to be a major threat to civil liberties."

"According to the American Legislative Exchange Council, a Washington, D.C.-based small-government advocacy group, 34 states have begun considering the "Model State Emergency Health Powers Act," a bill that critics contend gives state governors unprecedented authority in the event of a terrorist attack or other threat to the public health."

"A primary provision in the bill is that it prohibits people and groups from running political ads in newspapers and broadcast media that refer to a particular candidate within 60 days of a general election and 30 days of a primary election."

As such, it is a clear violation of the Constitution's First Amendment, which says, "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech. ..."

"As Gabe Leonard drove home through Beverly Hills after midnight one evening, lights flashed as he went through an intersection. He knew instantly he'd been photographed by a traffic camera."

"Mr. Leonard tried to recall where his wheels were when the yellow light turned red. He thought he'd beaten the light. But 12 days later he received a summons – including photos of his car, incriminatingly in mid-intersection."

The freelance artist fought the $271 fine in court – and, surprisingly, won. "I decided to fight on principle," says Leonard. "[A red-light camera] presents itself as some sort of infallible process."

"You can rely on the old guard establishment to ditch anything to save hunting in Pink coats. Today, it looks like we are losing coursing (Waterloo Cup crowd:10,000) and staghunting (supporters of D&S, Tiverton and Quantock: 10,000+). But it’s all right, because the Quorn is safe."

"So Tony Blair has won. He has forced a split in the hunting community."
