"Now, when it comes to advising the citizens of the United States on how best to protect themselves against terrorist threat; the DHS fails miserably. We are advised to buy plastic and duct tape to seal our windows and doors, stock a little food and water, and report any suspicious activity. They make no mention at all about how to best protect ourselves and our families against an actual terrorist. They advise us on how to protect against airborne chemicals and food shortages, but nothing is mentioned about protection from the cause of the problem. If we suspect a terrorist, we are to make a report to the proper authorities, and eventually they might investigate. That has proven to not be good enough. As individuals, the police cannot protect us. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the police have no responsibility to protect an individual citizen."

"As I write Dubya is telling how Saddam’s regime tied a 'dissident' to a stake in a town square after his tongue was cut out and allowed to bleed to death, as an example of how 'evil' our current enemies are. I don’t doubt what he says, on its face. I’ll also bet anyone a steak dinner that we’ll never hear Dubya talk about how evil the regime was that allowed a group our home-grown Nazis to murder a group of women and children in a church building a few years back."

"Of course, price is no object when the goal is banning all guns – a $70 gun is hated with as much passion as one that costs $7,000. And nothing stirs the passions and seems to stoke the antagonism of anti-gun activists quite so much as gun shows, and the fact that federal rules do not force the occasional purchases from non-dealers to be checked through the National Instant Check System. Since Congress has said no to shutting down gun shows, these activists looked to Sept. 11 to provide a boost."

CA: Lockyer loses bid to dismiss DA's lawsuit challenging state "Assault weapon" law

"In an upset victory, Fresno Superior Court Judge Kane today ruled that a lawsuit challenging the new state 'assault weapon' law makes valid claims against the law, and should not be thrown out of court. California Attorney General Lockyer, a defendant in the suit, had asked the Court to dismiss the case. The ruling means that the case will proceed toward trial, and that when the plaintiffs prove that their factual allegations are true, the law might be struck down."

"The law suit challenges Senate Bill 23, the 1999 amendment to the
state's 'assault weapon' law that bans firearms based on their cosmetic features."

Nineteenth story on the page

FULL TEXT BELOW:


A pro-gun group is praising Virginia's Democratic governor for proving to be a man of his word. Gov. Mark Warner earned praise from the Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) after signing a bill that gives state gun law precedence over inconsistent local regulations. CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron called the law "a victory for gun owners in the Old Dominion...and all Virginians who believe that the fundamental right of self-defense should not be encumbered by local jurisdictions that have passed regulations sometimes contrary to state statute." Under the bill, citizens licensed to carry concealed weapons in Virginia will not be prosecuted for violating local ordinances that regulate gun possession. The law does not prevent private companies and groups from setting their own gun rules, however. Gov. Warner campaigned on a gun rights platform, and CCRKBA praised him for remembering his promises now that the election is over.

"But that's the thing about guns. 'The chances' increase, especially when guns get into the wrong hands. On that April day in 1999, those hands belonged to two teenagers with delusions of death and a high school at their mercy." ...

"It's hard to imagine what a parent does in the wake of such inexplicable loss, but Tom Mauser chose to memorialize his son by working to pass a measure that closed the 'gun-show loophole' in Colorado."

"He is now traveling to states that have been slow to take the same action, and will speak Saturday at Washington CeaseFire's 20th Anniversary Gala at the Westin Hotel in Seattle." ...

"Hutchens, 53 of Plainfield, says he walked up to a Hendricks County Sheriff's Deputy in the courthouse, informed him that he had the weapon and demanded to be cited for breaking a county ordinance prohibiting deadly weapons on the premises."

"His goal, he says, is to challenge any law that prohibits him from carrying a firearm wherever he pleases. He says the ordinance is the government's way of infringing on his right to bear arms." ...

" 'There are limitations on the Second Amendment, certainly they are for the public safety,' Steuerwald said. 'It's analogous to the First Amendment that you can't run into a crowded theater and yell fire.' "

-------
That old flawed analogy again? A more correct comparison would be the possession of a voice in order to be able to yell "fire" in a crowded theater. Maybe we should limit that right?

"The state Division of Fish and Wildlife needs to convince New Jersey's youth that hunting ...is more exciting than hunting for songs to download from the Internet."

"Doing so would help the division reverse the shocking decline in the number of people that hunt in the state. The division is funded predominantly by hunting and fishing license fees, and officials fear a fiscal disaster if they fail to lure more youngsters away from technology and back to the woods."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state government, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. — Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
