"First, let me say this: ANYONE WHO WANTS TO DISARM YOU IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER THEY USE DOCTORED STATISTICS, COMMUNIST RHETORIC OR RELIGIOUS DOGMA TO MAKE YOU VULNERABLE TO ARMED THUGS OR GOVERNMENT TYRANTS. THE TOOL DOESNíT MATTER. THE CRIME DOES. The crime is civilian disarmament, and the nature of said crime does not change with the tools used to perpetuate it, whether they be perversion of Judaic law or the socialist 'common good' mantra." ...

"The desire to disarm you isnít endemic to Judaism. It isnít endemic to Democrats. There are Christians, Republicans, Buddhists and socialists who cling to gun control and disarmament as a means to either subjugate you or vainly try to protect you from yourself. ..."
 

Patently absurd editorial advocating gun control

The author of this piece has taken every warped and manipulated statistic from the Brady Center and turned it into a simpering, clueless, "ban evil guns for the children" essay.

Disputing every whining piece of misinformation in this drivel would literally take all day, so we will just leave you with the last paragraph to give you a taste of how misguided this author truly is.

"I believe my policy proposal is better than the current policy because in a society full of hate, eliminating guns would be eliminating one more trigger for evil in the world."
 

Beware of Wolves in Sheeps' Clothing: The Extremist NRA Leadership is Coming to Town on Friday. They Choose Guns Over the Safety of Our Police, Children and National Security

Wow! All the Brady talking points in one headline!

"The NRA's purpose in coming to Pittsburgh on Friday is to help swing Pennsylvania into the Bush/Cheney column. But, gun violence prevention advocates will argue that the NRA is a wolf in sheeps' clothing, extremist and supportive of actions that will enable terrorists to more easily purchase guns, with some NRA Board members having made racist statements unacceptable to most law-abiding Americans."

"Last summer, right around July 4th, it occurred to me I ought to support the Second Amendment. Not that I ever opposed it, per se. I just hadn't thought about it before. But I realized last summer the right to keep and bear arms is crucial in this era of post-9/11 'vigilance.' ..."

"All fine and good for a guy who, prior to that, had little more than experience with cap guns. Since then, however, I have paid closer attention to the gun-rights cause, and I have decided, once and for all, it's about much more than eating free meat and ending arguments. In fact, the cause isn't really about that at all. ..."
 

Why I Avoid Airports

"One of the consequences of 9/11 has been the across-the-board federalization of airport security. Security checkpoints have practically become owned subsidiaries of the federal government. The people working in them have a lot of leeway to do as they please. Vastly more than they should have, under any circumstances."

"Lately Iíve been checking out allegations of women and girls being 'searched' rather zealously, shall we say, at security checkpoints in airports. Incidents of overly intimate touching and fondling have been reported at Phoenix, Atlanta, Raleigh-Durham, Portland, and elsewhere. Perhaps three dozen such cases have been reported. I donít know that they happen everywhere. There is no way to know what hasnít been reported, of course. A few of these cases involve children. In the Atlanta case, a 9-year old girl was frisked. In yet another, from Orlando, a 3-year old girl was patted down. There are related cases of absurd levels of paranoia among security personnel. At Kennedy Airport in New York City, a woman was forced by a security guard to drink from three bottles of her own breast milk to 'prove' that the white liquid posed no threat to anyone. The dominant news media have been mostly silent about these cases except for a tiny handful of local news stories. Iím surprised feminists havenít had more to say about them. I guess they are still busy griping about all those dead white males in the textbooks."

Note from infowars.com April 13, 2004: In reversal of soviet-style police powers, Lyon County Kentucky Jury finds Kelly Rushing not-guilty of terroristic threats. You are still allowed to give public servants video tapes. What's incredible is that this even went to trial. So, the moral of the story is: some police would like to put citizens in jail for their political views.

 

A National ID Card Wouldn't Make Us Safer

"The potential privacy encroachments of an ID card system are far from minor. And the interruptions and delays caused by incessant ID checks could easily proliferate into a persistent traffic jam in office lobbies and airports and hospital waiting rooms and shopping malls."

"But my primary objection isn't the totalitarian potential of national IDs, nor the likelihood that they'll create a whole immense new class of social and economic dislocations. Nor is it the opportunities they will create for colossal boondoggles by government contractors. My objection to the national ID card, at least for the purposes of this essay, is much simpler:"

"It won't work. It won't make us more secure." ...

"It doesn't really matter how well an ID card works when used by the hundreds of millions of honest people that would carry it. What matters is how the system might fail when used by someone intent on subverting that system: how it fails naturally, how it can be made to fail, and how failures might be exploited."

"Martin A. Ward, 35, was fined $1,000 on Monday by Columbiana County Common Pleas Court Judge C. Ashley Pike after previously pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges of obstructing justice and criminal mischief."

"The sentences carried a maximum combined sentence of eight months in the county jail since they were misdemeanors, and Special Prosecutor William McGinnis had recommended Ward be placed on probation as agreed upon in the plea deal."

"Footage showing a black former paratrooper choking to death on the floor of a police station as officers stand by laughing and joking is to be screened on prime-time television this week."

"Christopher Alder's death in police custody has been investigated by the team that made The Secret Policeman, a BBC1 documentary that led to the resignations of 10 Cheshire policemen after exposing racist behaviour."

"Alder suffocated to death in April 1998 in a Humberside police station as he lay face down and unconscious with his trousers and boxer shorts pulled down around his knees. His last 11 minutes, caught on CCTV and re-enacted in detail for the programme, show the father-of-two struggling for breath through his blood and vomit as he lies handcuffed at the feet of five police officers, who accuse him of play-acting."

"A Florida company has come up with a computer chip that could keep police guns from firing if they fall into the wrong hands."

"The tiny chip would be implanted in a police officer's hand and would match up with a scanning device inside a handgun."

"If the officer and gun match, a digital signal unlocks the trigger so it can be fired. But if a child or criminal would get hold of the gun, it would be useless."

-------
And if the chip malfunctioned, and the officer's life was in danger, their tool of self defense would be rendered useless.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The federal ban on assault weapons could expire soon.

And while lawmakers believe the ban has significantly dropped violent crime, Pickett Weaponry store owner, Jack Pickett says the law gives a false sense of hope.

The law is due to expire on September 13th and will outlaw weapons like AK-47's and oozies [Shouldn't that be UZIs????]. Pickett believes extending the ban is pointless.

Pickett says all the ban has done is modify the manufacturing and marketing of assault weapons. Supporters of the bill claim 80% of all Americans and 50% of gun owners want the ban to continue.
 

IL: TF South Declares code red

"Thornton Fractional South High School in Lansing was locked down for over an hour during a police drug search. Drugs in the school? Actually, no. This is the second year in a row no drugs were found."

"Exactly how the lockdown was triggered is in question. TF South students heard Principal Dr. Timothy Kilrea call a 'Code Red' over the intercom. Once the call went over the intercom, kids noticed a lot of police around the building. It's unclear which school administrator decided to use the term as part of the building search."

"Students know Code Red means an intruder may be in the building and a Columbine type shooting situation could exist. The alert requires classroom doors to be locked, shades drawn and students to gather away from the hallway window." ...

"There is plausible belief in the idea that a spur of the moment misjudgment prompted the use of the 'Code Red' procedure. Wilhite wanted complete secrecy about the impending building search. He asked McDevitt to schedule the search and tell him about it shortly before it was to occur. As a result, Kilrea received approximately five minutes warning and the teachers knew nothing until after the lockdown had begun."

"This is a more palatable scenario than the intentional misuse of a safety procedure intended to protect students from a Columbine style attack."

"Brunswick County officials are expecting a full house late Monday afternoon for a public hearing on a proposed ordinance to limit the discharge of firearms."

"The hearing will mark at least the third time the issue has surfaced at a Board of Commissioners meeting since 1990, but the first time it has gotten as far as seeking public comment."

"If the draft ordinance were enacted, it would limit where guns can be fired but exempt hunters, charity turkey shoots, pistol ranges and a number of other uses. It would forbid indiscriminate gun firing within 1,000 feet of a residence or public buildings and from or across public streets and highways."

"Police agencies across New Jersey will get a share of a $3.7 million grant to purchase new bulletproof body armor, Attorney General Peter C. Harvey announced Tuesday." ...

"All of the state's 481 full-time police departments, 21 county prosecutor's and sheriff's offices, college campus police and state police were eligible to apply for the money to purchase armor."

Since the state of New Jersey disarms its civilians, and leaves them vulnerable to armed thugs, it would be more appropriate to purchase body armor for them instead of the cops. At least the cops have guns with which to defend themselves.

"If you suspect someone has an illegal gun, there's now a place to turn. Metro detectives unveiled a new program to educate the public on how to get illegal guns off the street."

"The project cost $30,000. The money comes from a federal grant. And it paid for posters that have been placed at bus stops around the city. It urges people to call 385-GUNS to report anyone with an illegal gun."

"The posters show chilling pictures -- children with guns and shots of a man in a prison uniform. The messages are in Spanish and English. The idea is to get illegal guns off the streets before they can be used in a violent crime. All you have to do is simply call the number with a tip, and police spring into action."

Ohio's New Concealed Weapons Law Hastens Need for Workplace No Weapons Policy

"It used to be that employers thought they didn't need a handgun policy in their workplace. Who would bring a gun to work? But think again: Ohio's new concealed weapons law means employers should seriously consider whether to put a handgun policy in place."

"OFCC Comment: The question isn't 'who would bring a gun to work?' so much as it is 'who would seek to disarm law-abiding citizens while at work?', since for years violent criminals have ignored all office policies, prohibitions, and gun control laws when they decide to kill."

"A story to be published in the April 20 issue of Gun Week suggests that the infamous Bushmaster rifle stolen from Bull's Eye Shooter Supply in Tacoma was not the first weapon of choice for 'D.C. Snipers' John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo. They may have planned to use another rifle, more powerful and deadly, in their killing spree."

... "According to the upcoming story, by senior editor Dave Workman, the rifle the pair likely wanted to use wound up locked up in the Pierce County Sheriff's Department armory months before the sniper mayhem began."

"Their apparent weapon of choice was a Remington Model 700, equipped with a telescopic sight, bipod and, more troubling, a barrel that had been shortened by 6 inches and threaded to accept a silencer." ...

"But Muhammad and Malvo lost the Remington before it could be put to their terrible use, a loss that apparently spurred Muhammad and Malvo to steal the Bushmaster from Bull's Eye."

12th Letter on the page

"I'm glad that fewer people requested concealed-carry permits than projected by a legislative research office last year."

"Everything that opponents actually predicted has come to pass. Because of incredibly low standards for granting permits, felons, wife-beaters and sex offenders are getting concealed-weapon permits. There are more guns in public places. Communities don't have the right to ban guns from public buildings. Public interactions are permanently changed for the worse. And our state now teaches kids that guns are a way to solve conflict."

-------
Of course, she industriously avoids the fact that there has been no blood in the streets or shootouts on street corners, like the gun banners predicted.

I don't know where Heather took her class, my permit instructor told all of us that the only reason to pull a gun is to save a life. But maybe irrational hoplophobes don't find that a good enough reason to carry one.

"An official source from the Immigration Department is confident Brunei will be ready with the biometric passport by Nov 2006 - the proposed two-year extension deadline by the US State Department and Department of Homeland Security on biometric passport requirements for visa-waiver nations."

"However, the official source told the Bulletin Weekend, meeting the Nov 2006 deadline would only be possible provided that I.C.A.O (International Civil Aviation Organisation) makes an endorsement on the biometric passport."
