The headline says it all.

This weirdo had a permit for his guns and practised regularly at his local gun club. Too bad one of his victims wasn't similarly prepared.

I guess registration doesn't stop crime after all...

"University of New Mexico women made the Women's Studies department madder than a wet hen by suggesting that self-defense is a good way to prevent rape."

DUHHHH! Why is it that campus leftists have such trouble with the obvious? Why doesn't the desire of "feminists" to prevent rape extend to allowing women to, well, prevent rape?

Three cheers to these brave women for promoting the truth on campus!

"Train, boat and bus passengers will probably be screened soon for weapons and have their bags searched for bombs just as airline passengers do, the transportation security czar said Tuesday."

"The question is, 'Why?' " said William J. Harris, professor emeritus at the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A&M University ... "How far are you going to carry this? Is every briefcase going on the metro [subway system] in Washington going to be screened?"

"Third-grade teacher Gail A. Wright was upstairs in her second-floor classroom at Maple Street Elementary School just after 2 p.m. yesterday when she got the word not to let any children leave the room. Minutes later, she was told to lead her students out of the building through the front entrance. Police with rifles began arriving. "It was scary," Wright said yesterday in the aftermath of a massive police search of the school that failed to find a man who had reportedly entered the building with a firearm."

KABA NOTE: A whole lot of good the police could have done if there HAD been a man with a gun intent on harming students or teachers - the teachers have all been disarmed!

Update on Cincinnati woman's attacker, her husband: She was defenseless, the crowd that witnessed the attack were helpless to defend her... too bad Lautenberg didn't include knives in his ban. I'm sure THAT would have saved her! Taft needs to live up to his word and "let" Ohians carry.

A vet who phoned 3 nights before arrived at their cottage claiming he was there to kill the family's pet baby goat, Misty. Despite having no papers authorizing the task, the vet insisted he was acting under orders and that it was 'necessary'.

Is that legal? Attorneys and legal scholars say no, and SERAD & English counterpart, the Dept of Environment realized they were on very shaky ground legally.

Unemployed man kills 8 Paris politicians in shooting rampage with legally owned guns. French papers blame man's insanity ("folie meurtriere"), not guns.

The Deputy Mayor says the shooting lasted "a very long time; he used several clips, he must have fired 40 or 50 bullets."

(Translated from http://www.lemonde.fr/article/0,5987,3226--268459-,00.html - "Très longtemps", se souvient l'adjoint au maire de Nanterre, Lucien Batard. "Il remettait des chargeurs, il a dû tirer 40 ou 50 cartouches.")

"I wouldn't have signed it if I was really unhappy with it. I think it improves the system," Bush said, while admitting that "certain provisions of the legislation present serious constitutional concerns.'

"By late morning ... 2 lawsuits were filed ... Both of them alleged the legislation violates the constitutional guarantee of free speech."

The law "eviscerates the core protections of the First Amendment by prohibiting, on pain of criminal punishment, political speech," said NRA.

"There has been much confusion as to whether Sarah Brady is guilty or not of violating her own laws. And, I have been just as guilty as the rest in "reaching for her jugular". I want to see her hanged for treason."

"She has done nothing less but commit treason by attacking one of our most basic freedoms -- the right of self-defense. But, after doing some research on the matter (with the help of a few good Friends of Liberty) we are still at the same question, is she guilty or not?"

'Nazi images make politicians act like ... Nazis'

"Is the flier hateful? Clearly not. Alzona's heavy-handed attempt at parody sends a political message about gun control, not Nazism. He's advocating gun ownership, not the Holocaust. He picked Nazi imagery to emphasize his view that, to him, gun control is similar to fascism. It's impossible to interpret his message as pro-fascist when it's so clearly anti-fascist (and anti-gun control). Insensitive? Yes. A hate message? No."

"But in America, Gus Alzona can express himself freely, even if it makes some politicians act like Nazis."

"Officials with Columbus Public Schools said federal student-privacy laws prevent them from revealing whether a 7-year-old boy who took a loaded gun to school last week was expelled during a hearing yesterday. But parents of students at Linden Elementary School on the North Side want to know how the district is dealing with the incident."

-- How biased is this article? Is this really how the majority of parents feel? We'll probably never know.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins ... Society is in every state a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. — THOMAS PAINE
