Beware the Midnight Knock

What has this to do with President Bush’s proposed "Freedom Corps"? A great deal. The very title of the initiative is an Orwellian coinage suggesting that freedom can only be achieved as part of a government-regimented program. Similar subterfuge is at work in the President’s call for Americans to give 4,000 hours in federally supervised "service" to the "nation."

Father Cirilo Nacorda comes armed with more than his faith to daily Mass at the Church of St Peter on the southern Philippines island of Basilan. Beneath his flowing vestments the stocky, 44-year-old Catholic priest packs his favourite .45 automatic pistol.

"Life is so precious. This is God's gift to us and I have to protect it," he says. "I believe God understands my predicament and why I need to do this. He knows my heart."

A very nice firsthand account of discreditation of Bellesiles book by a columnist from the San Francisco Chronicle, a generally very anti-gun publication. Finishes up with the schoolmarmish curator of the Contra Costa Historical Society pointing out that he "was just a rude young man."

I wonder who wrote this article for the San Francisco Chronicle? Perhaps the Brady Bunch or the VPC. I hope the Chronicle starts telling me the origin of all weapons used to illegally murder people, including knives, automobiles, beer bottles, etc. This is not newsworthy!

"They make millions of dollars and live a lifestyle few can imagine, but some athletes just can't resist the risky lure -- and allure -- of guns."

Jon Vernick, co-director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, said his organization has not studied the preponderance of athletes packing heat these days.
He allows that perhaps it just seems that way because when an athlete is arrested, the story runs in the newspaper the next day.

An Eagle Scout who was mistaken for a bank robber and shot in the face by an FBI agent was shot at close range about 6 p.m. Friday when FBI agents searching for a bank robbery suspect pulled over his girlfriend's car.

Carrying weapons that his daughter, a junior honor student at Northeast, described as "assault rifles or machine guns," the agents ordered them to put their hands up. That's when the agent on the passenger's side opened fire, striking Schultz once.

An 8-year-old boy is facing criminal charges "for pointing a toy gun at 3 other youngsters and threatening to shoot them." The boy, 7 at the time of the incident, has a hearing on 3 "felonious assault charges" next week.

Tommy's mother: "This is a waste of taxpayers' money. I didn't think it was against the law to have a toy gun. Doesn't the police department have anything better to do than to take complaints from kids who have a dispute with other kids?"

Chief Executive Officer Michael Dell said in a statement that the company screens its orders under federal export laws "to restrict the sale of technology to terrorists and to people in countries that support terrorism."

The screenings, which have been conducted for the past five years, include searching for certain words in orders such as "combat."

"Handguns" or "firearms" are not words that prompt red flags, the company said.

A woman accused of shooting a man who allegedly molested her son will not go to trial. On Friday, a grand jury decided not to indict the woman, who shot Larry Howell in November.

The woman was charged with one count of first-degree assault, and assault under extreme emotional disturbance.

Prosecutors said Friday that they will not present the charges a second time to the grand jury, which effectively ends the case against her.

Howell has been charged with nine counts of sodomy.

FREE REGISTRATION REQUIRED TO READ REPORT

"Researchers" are reporting "a correlation between regions of the country where gun ownership is high and the number of children who die from gunshot wounds."

The lead "researcher," Dr. Matthew Miller, said "the study could not definitively prove that increased gun ownership alone was linked to the childhood fatalities."

But the "researchers" said "other factors were unable to account for the differences."

Two years after he drove Elizabeth Dole from the 2000 presidential race by dominating Republican fund-raising, President Bush is helping his former rival collect money for her U.S. Senate campaign.

The White House, through the Republican National Committee, helped push other Republican candidates aside in the North Carolina Senate race, mindful that her name recognition could help carry her into office.

American anti-CCW types have long insisted that this type of thing would happen in U.S. streets if CCW was "allowed", instead it is happening where guns are "banned" for self-defense (so of course criminals "illegally" carry them to intimidate the unarmed and to scrap with their rivals)...

"Every new president pledges to do the public's business in the open and promises to cooperate with that co-equal branch of government, Congress. But all presidents soon think twice about those promises. They inevitably start pulling down the shades and complaining that Congress is intruding on their presidential powers."

"as you know, our speaker tonight is the economist and historian Charlotte Twight. For those of you’ve not seen her book, and many of you have gotten it already, but those of you’ve not, this is her new book called Dependent on D.C.: The Rise of Federal Control Over the Lives of Ordinary Americans. It’s from Palgrave/St. Martin’s Press. And I hope everyone will get a copy. This is going to be a very important book, and we’re the first to hold an event based on it."
 

SC: 'Who will monitor those with permits?'

"People with permits to carry hidden guns now want to make our schools battlegrounds. It is not enough that weapons are now available to settle disputes in public areas such as highways, bars or clubs, but now we are being asked to believe that once someone has been authorized to carry a concealed weapon, that person will forever act rationally and prudently."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both. — William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)
