TSA "Terrorist" Turns Out To Be A Homeward-Bound Marine!

"The Transportation Security Administration bagged a terrorist in Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday, or so they thought. Daniel Brown's name came up on their no-fly watchlist, so they dragged him into interrogation and grilled him, despite the protestations of Brown and his fellow travelers, who swore they could vouch for him."

"The others in Brown's party went on their Northwest Airlines flight to Minneapolis-St. Paul, where they waited on a bus at the airport. You see, the detained man was Staff Sergeant Daniel Brown, USMC Reserve, and he was traveling with the other members of his Marine Reserve Military Police unit, which was heading home to Minnesota from eight months of combat in Iraq. The Marines were in full uniform and all, including Brown, had travel orders and military identification cards."
 

Citizen Soldiers: The Militia (Excerpt)
Submitted by: News Director

"The story of America's citizen soldiers shows that the militia and the Second Amendment are not obsolete. The populace at large will always fulfill essential militia functions."

"The militia system, based upon universal military service for able-bodied men, played an integral part in the founding of America. Transplanted from England, but modified to meet the requirements of a new environment, it enabled colonists to subdue the native population and to defend British interests from foreign incursion. But beyond that, it imbued Americans with a sense of martial responsibility, and a love of freedom that ultimately enabled them to achieve independence and forge a new country out of what was once a community of loosely united colonies."
 

University professors shape laws

"Kleck's research is just one example of what can happen at the unpredictable, and growing, intersection of politics and university research. Sometimes research takes on a political life of its own. Often, politicians discard good science if it contradicts their beliefs. And with business and governments increasingly paying professors for studies to validate causes, it can be hard to tell the difference between pure academic research and a politically expedient consulting job."

"To keep up, taxpayers must think critically about the research that shapes their lives."
 

AZ: Immigrant trespassing bill among Napolitano's vetoes

"Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano vetoed a slew of Republican-approved bills Monday, including a National Rifle Association-backed gun bill and one that looks to have local police arrest illegal immigrants on trespassing charges."

"Napolitano, a Democrat, nixed the trespassing bill, citing opposition to the idea from local law enforcement, including police unions and Phoenix and Chandler police." ...

"The governor also vetoed a bill that would have restricted her powers to limit gun and ammunition sales during a time of emergency. The NRA has been pushing similar bills in other states in the wake of attempted emergency powers being invoked in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans."

"The state House passed a bill today to strengthen Arizonans' rights to claim self-defense and to use force against intruders."

"The bill would scrap a decade-old state law by imposing a new burden of proof on prosecutors to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that a defendant's self-defense claim was unfounded."

"It also would implant in Arizona law the so-called 'castle doctrine' that gives a person the right to use force in a home or vehicle against an intruder without having to retreat."
 

IL: Pointing toward November: Gun lobby plays role in governor's race

"Gun owners may not like Gov. Rod Blagojevich, but Republican Judy Baar Topinka wasn’t necessarily their first choice to run against him."

"Topinka squeaked through a close Republican primary and did it without the endorsement of the gun lobby, which threw its support behind dark horse Bill Brady. Yet one local guns advocate likely will support her."

" 'I think she’ll stand up for our rights better than Blagojevich has although he said he was going to,' said Teri Kramer of rural Spring Valley, who co-owns a firearm business with husband Chris. 'I believe she would definitely be better for our gun rights and not going so much with everything (Chicago Mayor Richard) Daley has to say.' "

"The Chicago Police Department is teaming up with church and business leaders to get guns off the street in a program that offers cash for weapons -- with no questions asked."

" 'We are never going to lower crime in this city while guns proliferate the streets,' said Rev. Michael Pfleger, St. Sabina Church." ...

"...The message will be carried live April 29 on three radio stations, and big corporations like Jewel Osco and Chase Bank are putting up the cash to provide a $100 debit card for each gun turned in."

-------
Doesn't Chicago already have some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation? Obviously criminals don't care about these laws, but these people believe they'll turn in their guns for $100?

"The letter 'Preserve our right to keep, bear arms' (April 6) stated, 'Look what happened to Germany when Hitler confiscated the citizens' firearms. He was able to take over the country without a shot.'
This is misleading in several ways. First, Hitler was appointed chancellor by President Paul von Hindenburg, he did not 'take over' because of any restrictions on firearms."

"Second, Hitler never ordered firearms to be confiscated from the German people. The 1928 Weimar Firearms Law was in effect before Hitler came to power and continued in effect until amended by a new law in 1938. ..."

"...Nagin et al answered that they didn’t have the guns. They later admitted that they did. The Court ordered them returned to their rightful owners."

"New Orleans balked and stalled. The City was found in contempt and was then ordered again to return them, at which time they agreed to do so through a process which included new background checks. This is, of course, harassment of lawful owners. As usual, officials like to abuse the law abiding with acts of power which never touch the criminals."

"Now, not only do the rightful owners have to jump through hoops, but some of the weapons are turning up lost according to early reports." ...

"This is where the Purists come in."

"None of the police officers who took part in the London subway shooting of a Brazilian man, wrongly identified as a terrorist suspect, will face charges, a newspaper reported today."

"Its source, identified as 'an authoritative legal' figure, told the newspaper: 'mistakes were made but they do not amount to criminal misconduct.' "

"The firearms officers were acting under orders. Those in charge of surveillance believed he was a suspect."

"Many supporters of the federal Conservatives will have to hold their fire on the gun registry. This may disappoint them, but they should realize that Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives will have to think carefully before carrying out their pledge to end the registry." ...

"Because Harper commands only a minority government, the opponents of gun control might not win a vote on the subject if the government permitted a vote to be held. The opponents should also know that the throne speech did not even mention gun control, so the Commons will probably not even debate the issue in the near future, let alone vote on it. Harper is not likely to devote much attention to the gun registry when it isn't one of the key priorities he has outlined for his government."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the constitution they don't like. — Alan Dershowitz
