"Two cameras, positioned like crab eyes on the police cruiser's roof, snapped digital pictures of hundreds of license plates, and with each beep, the laptop checked the images against an FBI list of stolen cars."

"Such cameras - called Mobile Plate Hunters - are replacing the laborious eyeball-and-keystroke method of checking for stolen cars, letting busy officers rely instead on an automated scan that takes less than a second."

"Automatic number plate recognition is a technology on the verge of exploding in the Baltimore-Washington area, fueled by funds from the Department of Homeland Security."

"'The uses are as limitless as your imagination,' said Lt. John McKissick, director of Howard County's emergency preparedness division."

"In response to 'Armed German citizens wouldn't have stopped Hitler' by James Good (4/5/2006)"

"Guns in the hands of citizens could very well of had an effect. It certainly did in the Warsaw ghetto as well as the partisan movement. The citizen resistance in Russia wrecked havoc on the Nazi war machine's supply line. The resistance did 'hit and run' campaigns. Killing individual and small groups of soldiers, taking their weapons and ammunition. This made them stronger and the Nazi's weaker. If not for the French resistance, D-Day may have been very different. For they assisted in a number of ways and fed the Allies pertinent info. As well as disrupted communications and supply lines."

"The truth of the matter is that there is no exact face critics can throw up on the television to represent the image of gun supporters. ..."

"While there are no problems with individuals choosing not to own a firearm, restricting citizens from attaining the means of protecting themselves is an unacceptable and unconstitutional act. Gun ownership, even if the person is a law-abiding adult, has attained a certain stigma in society, which creates the sense that gun ownership is somewhat of a sin. Critics are not grasping the fact that there is a bigger situation at hand – guns are not the problem, people who abuse them are."
