"A young hockey player and part-time waitress used her hockey stick on a would-be burglar and nearly beat him to a pulp on Thursday morning."

-------
And the police? 'The flying squad arrived about 40 minutes later.'
It's a good thing she didn't just call the cops.

"Amid all the violence and emotional turmoil of this new war that enters our homes and minds with the sterile click of a remote, it may be encouraging, even therapeutic, to ponder a recent decision on the free-speech home front. An Ohio appeals court has ruled that people may talk back to a dog, even a police dog."

"The night before, the jury foreman had been upset by her contact outside her home with Richmond police officers who questioned her nephews on the street as possible suspects in a robbery. (They apparently weren't involved in the crime.)"

"There is a fundamental difference between statists and non-statists, one which goes beyond the acceptance of the NAP (or ZAP if you prefer). This difference is the value which each places on human life. The non-statist values life highly--which is why the non-statist holds to the NAP. The statist does not value human life-except his own-which is why he does not subscribe to the NAP."

"Recent passage of a state law which allows concealed gun permit holders unlimited access to public schools is dangerous. According to its sponsor, Sen. Mike Waddoups, R-Taylorsville, it is justified because 'as long as the bad guys can take their guns into schools then the good guys should also be allowed to take their guns in.' " ...

"In a spontaneous, chaotic, unfamiliar, highly stressed life-and-death situation, how does one distinguish between 'good guys' and 'bad guys?' "

-------
Here's a clue: the "bad guys" are the ones threatening their disarmed victims.

Police and Guns

"According to civilian disarmament advocates, only police and military personnel can be trusted with firearms. Gun prohibition activists quickly point to gun-related tragedies involving irresponsible civilian gun owners, such as crimes, suicides, and accidents. But relatively little attention is paid to incidents of this sort involving active duty or retired law enforcement and military personnel." ...

"Those who own firearms must act responsibly, particularly where children are involved. But these particular incidents, and many more like them, also illustrate that agents of the state are not magically immune to thoughtless or reckless behavior, and certainly shouldn’t be entitled to a monopoly on the right to bear arms."

"For decades, gun control laws passed across the country, to the delight of our criminal element. While the crime rate rose, some communities and states recently eased some restrictions. In every case, stricter controls led to increases in violent crime while places that removed some laws preventing people from protecting themselves, experienced a decline in those same types of criminal activity. The statistics are absolutely indisputable."

"We doubt that the fathers of the Constitution intended for the general public to be able to walk down their streets with a loaded .38 special tucked in their jeans. Times were different in the 1780s. As a newly liberated federation of states, there was a high priority to provide as much national and personal defense as possible. It was important that people of that era be able to defend their farms and property because of the lack of organized militia or police to enforce the law."

-------
Considering, for example, that law enforcement authorities in Louisiana are still trying to find a serial killer, who has been linked to at least five deaths, the existence of law enforcement doesn't seem to be enough to protect the populace.

"The legislation, Senate Bill 1195, on the surface attempts to halt the manufacture and ownership of semi-automatic 'assault weapons.' "

"I use quotes because on the surface, one man's .22-caliber squirrel rifle is another man's assault rifle. With a few aftermarket products, such as a synthetic fold-up stock, a muzzle shroud and a bipod, my own .22 could resemble an assault rifle, and it does have a semi-automatic action."
