"Mr. Ashcroft's critics fear that if the court embraces the government's position, gun laws will be swept away and Americans will be armed to the teeth and killing each other at unprecedented rates. The critics' parade of horribles, however, is most unlikely, and it should not be allowed to prevent serious deliberation as to the meaning of the Second Amendment." -- Terry Eastland, The Dallas Morning News

"Judge K.L. McIff has chosen to defy a new state law that requires courts to install gun lockers in courthouses. That's an awkward position for a judge, but his reasoning is sound, which is more than can be said for the gun-happy Legislature that passed this dangerous law earlier this year."

"Recent mass killings -- often with politicians as the targets -- have left at least 46 dead in Germany, France, Switzerland and Hungary. In addition, assassinations in the Netherlands and Italy left two politicians dead."

"The most famous of the 27 amendments to the US constitution is probably the fifth ... The most bewildering is the second ... that makes Europeans cease thinking of Americans as much-loved cousins and regard them instead as refugees from a distant planet."

"The traditional liberal theory ... is that the early Americans were conveying their distaste for professional armies, and aiming to protect the infant state by use of the armed citizen." -- Matthew Engel, The Guardian (UK)

"THE FIRST TEN AMENDMENTS to the United State Constitution, commonly called the Bill of Rights, were added to protect the rights of the individual American citizen. In the first blush of the new republic the meaning of any of those rights was crystal clear. The fact that all had been ignored or crushed by the soldiers of King George made them easy to understand. Yet time passed and newer generations forgot the tyranny of an English monarch." -- Tanya K. Metaksa

"The next time a gun-rights advocate asserts that the Constitution guarantees an individual's unconditional right to bear arms, respond with a question: What kind of arms?"

"An M-1 tank?"

"A Blackhawk helicopter?"

"A thermonuclear warhead?"

"If the answer to all of these is "yes," then you're talking to a lunatic. Better change the subject. On second thought, run away." -- MICHAEL ZUZEL, Columbian staff writer

"It is hard to take seriously Mr. Ashcroft's assertion that the Bush administration remains committed to the vigorous defense and enforcement of all federal gun laws. Mr. Ashcroft, after all, is an official whose devotion to the gun lobby extends to granting its request to immediately destroy records of gun purchases amassed in the process of conducting Brady law background checks even though they might be useful for tracking weapons purchases by suspected terrorists." -- Opinion of The New York Times

"Detectives focused almost immediately on the girl's brother. They thought Michael seemed oddly unemotional about his sister's death."

"During the next two days, Crowe was interrogated for 10 hours. Detectives lied about evidence against him – a legal interviewing technique – and arrested him after they said he confessed."

--While not directly RKBA related it graphically shows the extent that police [KABA NOTE: are able to legally] lie to obtain confessions from innocent people.

"Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff says he's "baffled" by a recent order by judges in the state's 6th Judicial District who said they will not go along with a new state law requiring gun lockers at courthouses. "They're disobeying the law," Shurtleff said."

"He said he wants to sit down informally with judges in the 6th District to discuss the issue, since there might be a misunderstanding as to what the law requires."

"To be fair, Mr. Olson describes "reasonable restrictions" broadly. They include limitations "designed to prevent possession by unfit persons or to restrict the possession of types of firearms that are particularly suited to criminal misuse" -- a category that would seem to cover so-called "assault weapons" and easily concealed handguns. Still, gun-control advocates are understandably apprehensive." -- Opinion of the Post-Gazette

"If the court were to take up the two cases on appeal, it is far from clear that the Justice Department's new position would prevail. The plain text of the Second Amendment ... does not support the unequivocal view that Mr. Ashcroft and Mr. Olson have put forth. The amendment refers to the right of the people, rather than the individual person of the Fifth Amendment." -- Jack Rakove, The New York Times

If you are hunting in Mexico/US border areas beware. The guy you see with firearms, on US soil, may be a Mexican soldier or a Mexican policeman.

They have directed fire at US government aircraft and fired near Border Patrol Agents. I suspsect that they won't hesitate to shoot at a lawfully armed US citizen, since they have no problem directing fire at uniformed agents or marked aircraft.
