"The producers didn't want to feature anything about women and guns, but the pepper-spray met their approval," said Miss Quigley, who wryly noted that the syndicated TV show completely retaped the segment to eliminate any mention of firearms. Television apparently wants to keep the guns and gore for movies and cop shows.

"An article in the Washington Post last Sunday shows that the anti-gun media establishment has no interest in facts ... misstatements of fact must be addressed. Articles like this one are repeated by those who don't care whether they're spreading falsehoods, as long as they get their way." by Brad Edmonds

The report, written by Officer Robert Engelke, adds new detail to witness accounts of the rampage at the Elgin bar, which ended when patrons tackled Casteel as he paused to reload. According to his report, Engelke was the first officer on the scene about 12:40a.m. and saw patrons running from every visible exit. One patron implored: "He is still inside shooting people. Go get him. Help us." As other officers arrived and prepared to enter the bar together, Engelke heard 20 to 30 shots.

~~The very last paragraph says it all and indicates that the Denver Post, or at least this unnamed writer, gets it: "The high court seems to have forgotten that the Fourth Amendment was meant to guard citizens from the arbitrary excesses of government - not to ensure the convenience of cops."

KABA NOTE: -- Nor to ensure the convenience and profit of the State.

Do Concealed Carry Laws Endanger Police?
Submitted by: John Rich

A new study by David Mustard examines how right-to-carry laws and waiting periods affect police deaths. Many people oppose concealed carry laws because they believe these laws jeopardize police officers. The conclusion: This paper strongly rejects this contention. Allowing law-abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons does not endanger the lives of officers, and may help reduce their risk of being killed.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
