"Every product has illegitimate uses and undesirable consequences, but even lawsuits have had their limits. In 2002 in the U.S., car accidents killed 45,380 people and injured another 3 million, 838 children under the age of 15 drowned, 474 children died from residential fires, and 130 children died in bicycle accidents."

"Fortunately, local governments haven’t started recouping medical costs or police salaries by suing auto or bicycle companies, pool builders or makers of home heaters."

"All sorts of products, including cars and computers, are also used in the commission of crimes. But again, no one yet seriously proposes that these companies be sued for the losses from these crimes." ...

"The real weapons of mass destruction are small arms and light weapons, which kill half a million people around the world every year, according to the international movement pushing for greater control over the trade in these instruments of death."

"The unchecked proliferation of pistols, revolvers, assault rifles, grenades, machine guns and similar weapons has had drastic consequences for health and public security, human rights and even the economy. In some countries, like Brazil, Colombia and El Salvador, it is estimated that gun-related violence leads to economic losses of more than 10 percent of gross domestic product (GDP)." ...

Pete Collins of Madison, who is now an inspirational speaker known for doling out safety tips to audiences around Mississippi and the world, posted a $10,000 bond Friday after arriving at the Tupelo-Lee County Adult Detention Center to turn himself in. No trial date has been set.

A grand jury issued an indictment in February, alleging Collins fondled a 13-year-old girl in Tupelo in January. Collins, a former director of public affairs for the Mississippi Highway Patrol, was never arrested on the charge. He couldn't be reached for comment.

A longtime state trooper, Collins was promoted to captain in 1997 when the Mississippi Legislature mandated his promotion. He retired a year later.

In 1988, Collins was named Statewide Trooper of the Year and President Clinton awarded him the Presidential Citation for an Outstanding Enforcement Officer in 1994.

"After reading Sunday's New York Times, my first inclination was to call 9-1-1 and ask police to put St. Paul's Mac-Groveland and Crocus Hill neighborhoods, as well as Minneapolis' uberliberal Uptown enclave, on suicide watch. I was particularly worried about Heather Martens and the other folks over at Citizens for a Safer Minnesota, the local adjunct for the mathematically challenged Million Moms."

"The 'paper of record' ran what must have been a painful front-page story for readers and staff alike. The Old Gray Lady admitted what many of us have known all along: Sen. Dianne Feinstein's assault-weapon ban had little or no effect on crime or weapons trafficking over the 10 years it was in place. What's more, so-called "assault weapons" were used so infrequently to commit crimes — an argument put forth by opponents of the ban 10 years ago but dismissed by the solons in the Senate — that the law was little more than a feel-good measure."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. — Noah Webster in "An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution," 1787, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at p. 56 (New York, 1888).
