"The House is poised this week to approve legislation that would ease donation-reporting rules for a broad class of political groups, opening a new front in the campaign finance debate."

"Critics say the measure, coming just weeks after the enactment of a landmark law to limit donations to national political parties, could encourage certain groups to receive huge contributions from wealthy donors while escaping effective scrutiny."

"It normal to be nervous when you see those blue and reds strobe lights in your rear view mirror.
You may be wondering: Why me? What did I do? Why is that cop "picking” on me? Well guess what? The police officer is also very concerned."

"So-called "routine” vehicle stops are one of the most dangerous functions a law enforcement officer conducts. It’s an unfortunate fact that police officers are killed, or seriously injured, every year, while conducting traffic stops."

"Holthouse concludes that most people sent to prison under Project Exile didn't actually use a gun to commit a crime: they were merely busted with a gun and a felony record. Of course, felonies include white collar crimes that aren't physically violent as well as victimless crimes."

"A convicted armed robber has just been released form prison. He hits the streets, and immediately begins looking for a way to get some cash. He has a decision to make: legitimate work or go back to plying his old trade. He decides to knock off a 7-11."

"Of course, he needs a gun, so before heading out to the store he stops by a gun dealer to have his background check done before he purchases a firearm. What's wrong with this picture? Apparently nothing to some politicians in Washington..."

"The Montreal police force, one of Canada's largest, will begin trading in their old guns next month for modern pistols widely used around the world. The department will spend about $4 million over the next three years to purchase nine-millimetre Walther weapons manufactured in Germany."

"They will replace a six-bullet style of revolver in use since the 1940s. The most recent variation - Ruger .357-calibre Magnums - have been used since the early 1990s."

KABA NOTE: What the headline calls a "revolver," obviously is an autoloading pistol (see picture at link).

"News stories from around the nation identifying gun control as a trip-wire issue dividing conservatives and liberals don't surprise. The events of September 11 have heightened the resolution of the "individual rights" interpreters of the Second Amendment. These are distinguished from the "collective rights" faction. The former stare the language in the face and come away with a reading different from the collective crowd."

"Firearms might be the last resort for citizens if every method of reform were to fail. Remember that your ultimate goal is to restore the Bill of Rights -- not to win an argument or an election. To bring back the Bill of Rights, we must change the culture. Along the way, we must win incremental victories. But we must be able to tell a real victory from a false, perhaps even destructive one."

"If you win an argument, what have you gained? You've won a battle but may have lost the war."

"The terrorist achieved exactly what they set out to do. By killing only a few thousand citizens, along with themselves, they were able to send untold millions into such a panic that they have turned their backs on the very things this great country was founded and built upon. Lying buried beneath the tons of stone and steel that once was the World Trade Center, along with thousands of innocent Americans killed, are those precious American siblings -- Liberty and Freedom."

"A recent report on CNN stated that, in the last century, over 170 million people worldwide were killed by their own government. And liberal politicians want to take the citizens' guns away? ... Why do you give up a hefty percentage of your income each month to the government? ... Government guns are staring you right in the face at every turn. Our politicians want to take them out of our hands, though. Does this make sense? It does to those in power, because it enables them to stay in power."

"As the man came at the officer, the officer pressed his gun against the suspect’s chest and pulled the trigger, but it didn’t fire. “There’s a slide on the muzzle that stops the mechanism from firing if you put pressure against it,” Assistant Chief Jim Weston said. “It’s called ‘out of battery.’”

"The officer then kicked the suspect backwards into the room and the man slammed the door shut, locking it. Using the manager’s key, police entered the room and used a Taser gun twice on the suspect to immobilize him."
