... "How American Jews can miss this lesson is frankly baffling to me. As far as I can see, any American Jews like Rabbi Yoffie who urge citizen disarmament are merely the Judas goats of a future Holocaust. And if you think it can't happen here, Errol, you're whistling past the graveyard of history. As an African American, you should know this. It wasn't that long ago that the Deacons for Defense and Justice rose up in a perilous time and faced down their own would-be murderers with guns in their hands." ...

"What do you do when the police can't protect you? Police may be the single most important factor for reducing crime, but there is something the police themselves understand: They almost always arrive at the crime scene after the crime has occurred."

"Expecting people to trust the police to protect them and to behave passively is a recipe for disaster."

"The last couple of weeks have seen a couple prominent murders where restraining orders did women little good. ..."

"Unfortunately, despite acknowledging that 'many women find themselves on their own,' the media are drawing the wrong lessons. To simply advise that women 'Get the hell away him' often doesn't go anywhere near far enough." ...

"For the past 30 years, residents of the District of Columbia have been threatened with conviction and imprisonment simply for having a gun in their homes."

"In keeping with a District-wide law, all handguns were prohibited, unless they were registered before 1976. Even pistols registered prior to the ban could not be carried from room to room within a home without a license. Furthermore, licensed guns had to be kept locked up or disassembled."

"Critics have long decried the District's gun ban ... But Shelly Parker and five other D.C. residents went a step beyond complaining to challenge the law in federal court, claiming that it barred the very protection the Second Amendment guarantees—the right to self defense." ...

"I've been quite open about my former liberalism. I am dismayed at today's liberals ... I certainly resent their opposition to the Second Amendment. ..." ...

"Their media is worse on Second Amendment issues. Every gun use is evil, statues with guns in them are evil, and gun owners are white and male and redneck and evil."

"Every now and again, though, someone makes a statement in a liberal forum that bears repeating. Camille Paglia is a liberal and libertarian at the same time. She is published in Salon magazine, a very left-wing institution. She writes a column that periodically answers readers' letters. A man from Brooklyn wanted to know her stand on the Second Amendment. Here is what she had to say in total:" ...
 

Inside Politics: Two Americas

"When Sen. John Edwards ran for president four years ago, the North Carolina Democrat declared that President Bush had divided the nation into 'two Americas ... one America that does the work, another America that reaps the reward.'"

"Turns out that the other America lives right next door to the 28,000-square-foot, $5.3 million mansion Mr. Edwards has built near Chapel Hill, N.C."

"The Edwards' neighbor, Monty Johnson, lives on 42 acres that the Johnson family has owned for decades. Mr. Johnson, 55, has been known to brandish firearms to chase away trespassers, which frightens the former senator's wife, who called the Johnson property 'slummy' and condemned its owner as a 'rabid Republican.'" ...

"From the viewpoint of a Second Amendment supporter, it doesn’t matter whether Mitt Romney is an expert varmint stalker. It does matter whether he is sincere in his support of the Second Amendment. His stories last week about his lifetime of hunting give reason to doubt that President Romney would be a reliable defender of gun-owner rights." ...

"Mayor Bloomberg let the teachers union and its allies have it with both barrels blazing the other day - which is a bit ironic, since he likened them to the National Rifle Association."

"To Mayor Mike, of course, comparing someone to the NRA is the vilest of epithets." ...

"Actually, the mayor's analogy is just slightly off-base."

"Say this for the NRA: The group is up front about its agenda and its interests: Gun owners are its constituents - and it openly admits that it advocates on their behalf, not someone else's." ...

... "So if government has a 'duty' to pay for women who want to have recreational abortions, then, Rudy, does government have a duty to pay for my firearms? Conservatives are a bit antsy when you have said that gun control in New York is way different than gun control in Flyover Country ... We could, however, buy that if you bought the argument that abortion, too, is an issue that each state should decide for itself. ... But if you believe that the law, as passed by that legislative body we call the Supreme Court, provides rights, then surely those rights should be the same everywhere. And if constitutional rights should be funded by taxpayers, then I have a request: Rudy, buy me a gun."

"Many times I’ve heard people say that, 'all politicians are the same.' Nothing could be further from the truth. All politicians are all different."

"Sure they have some similarities, just like members of any other group, but they are all unique people with unique thoughts."

"Recently, U.S. Congresswoman Jean Schmidt and State Representatives Joe Uecker and Danny Bubp joined fellow shooters for a day of fun at the Buckeye Blast. They were there for the same reasons as all the other participants. They care deeply about our personal freedoms, and they support groups that work to protect those freedoms. Of course they were there for the fun and comradery too ... Have you been shooting with one of your legislators yet?" ...
 

The Right to Hunt in Montana: Rudy Giuliani's Narrow Reading of the Second Amendment

"Despite his promise to appoint 'strict constructionists' to the Supreme Court if he is elected president, Rudy Giuliani recently said he has no interest in overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that discovered a previously unnoticed constitutional right to abortion. ..."

"Since Giuliani also claims to support 'the right to bear arms' (a right that is actually mentioned in the Constitution), he should, by similar logic, advocate the use of taxpayer money to buy guns for poor people. But the idea would never occur to him, because his sudden interest in the Second Amendment, like his sudden interest in strict constructionism, is merely an affectation intended to allay the concerns of Republican primary voters." ...

"As a group of children played in the backyard of a Middletown home, an animal, believed to be one of two or three coyotes that emerged from the woods, ran to and grabbed a 20-month-old boy, township officials said."

"The family managed to scare the animal away, and the toddler was treated at a local hospital for scratches and teeth marks, in what wildlife experts said is probably the first coyote attack on a child in state history."

"After the animal attack Friday off Kings Highway East, near Chapel Hill Road, local officials took a second look at six to eight other recent reported sightings and incidents involving pets that were attacked by what were initially thought to be stray dogs." ...

"The National Rifle Association is cruising."

"A controversial bill that would make it illegal for businesses to keep employees from bringing guns to work and storing them in their vehicles passed another committee in the Senate on Tuesday."

"The swiftness contrasts sharply with a protracted debate last year that split Republican lawmakers between two favorite interests - business and guns - and competing visions of constitutional rights."

"'It's an issue whose time has come. People are sick and tired of being dictated to because they decide to become a customer or an employee,' said NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer." ...

"House Bill 340 reads, 'the right of people to defend themselves from harm or loss of life is fundamental and beyond question.'"

"Balliet, 42, of Winfield Township, Butler County, insists he's not a 'gun freak -- just a good, old-fashioned, red-blooded American' who is tired of intrusions upon his personal freedoms. So, when he read the text of a bill introduced in Pennsylvania's House of Representatives last month, the timber worker 'about flipped.'"

"...In short, each citizen desires to preserve his life, to preserve those things which conduce to maintenance of his life and enjoyment of it, and to preserve intact his liberties..."

"...there are numerous kinds of actions in respect of which men would not, if they were asked, agree with anything like unanimity to be bound by the will of the majority . . . Here, then, we find a definite warrant for enforcing the will of the majority within certain limits, and a definite warrant for denying the authority of its will beyond those limits..."

"...In other words, along with social progress, there goes not only a fuller recognition of these which we call natural rights, but also a better enforcement of them by Government..."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The Millville Volunteer Fire Company will hold a special election this month to name a new chief after the old one was charged with having sex with a 17-year-old Dagsboro girl.

Walter Johnson, 31, who was also an Ocean View police officer, resigned from his post with the fire company after he was charged earlier this month.

Millville Volunteer Fire Company spokesman Bob Powell said the special election will be held later this month, but did not give an exact date.

Johnson was charged with two counts of fourth-degree rape, a charge used when the victim is younger than 18 and the suspect is over 30. Police said the warrant stated that Johnson was not aware of the girl’s age.

Johnson waived his April 5 preliminary hearing.

"The 35-year-old woman handled her 9 mm Glock with ease. For three straight days, she honed her aim and hit bull's-eye after bull's-eye from the firing line at the Boston Gun Range."

"Then she put the gun to her head and killed herself."

"Like countless others who have rented guns at ranges across the country, she did not have a firearm license. And as a convicted felon with a restraining order against her, she wouldn't have been able to get one." ...

"The first calls on his cell phone came from two lawyers asking to represent him in a slander case. Elizabeth Edwards, they told him, had called him a 'rabid, rabid Republican.' That wasn't all. She also told The Associated Press she didn't want her children near Johnson because, she said, he once pulled a gun on workers investigating a right of way on his property." ...

"Black community leaders reacted after Mr Blair said the recent violence should not be treated as part of a general crime wave, but as specific to black youth. He said people had to drop their political correctness and recognise that the violence would not be stopped 'by pretending it is not young black kids doing it'." ...
