"Your help is needed immediately to STOP two legislative bills of serious threat to the lawful manufacturers and sellers of firearms and ammunition. Senate Bill 682 and Assembly Bill 496 were introduced in this legislative session as a result of last year's California State Supreme Court dismissal of a lawsuit against a firearms manufacturer (Merrill v. Navegar). This lawsuit dismissal was, of course, a just victory for the firearms industry and therefore infuriated the anti-gun crowd."

"Frey’s 15-page letter proceeds to make one misstatement after another to denigrate the Second Amendment. Not once does he so much as quote its words: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

"Contrary to the assertions of the Tuesday Dispatch editorial "The NRA way,' Attorney General John Ashcroft and the U.S. Justice Department are not engaged in a radical "reinterpretation' of the Second Amendment by endorsing the view that the right to keep and bear arms belongs to "the people' individually and not to the states."

"In two U.S. Supreme Court briefs filed by the Justice Department on May 6, Solicitor General Theodore Olson wrote: "(The) current position of the United States is that the Second Amendment more broadly protects the rights of individuals ... to possess and bear their own firearms."

"Fourth District Court Executive Paul Sheffield said court officials from Utah, Wasatch, Juab and Millard counties have met to discuss what the arrangement of the lockers will be and what their response is to the new law."

"When an activist denounces Nike for its labor practices, he's exercising his right to free speech. So how come when Nike tells its side of the story, the First Amendment suddenly gets tossed out the window?"

"Ask the California Supreme Court, which in a 4-3 decision earlier this month ruled that Nike's public statements amount to "commercial speech" and thus are undeserving of the same protections afforded its critics. Even the ACLU, hardly a flunky for business, is appalled."

"New ways to improve air safety" -- "Federal officials may create a toll-free emergency number that passengers could call from the telephones installed on commercial jets.

"Moore believes America is obsessed with guns, and ... he crossed the United States (and visited Canada) filming 200 hours of footage to find out why."

"As in Moore's other films, some of the interviews are uncomfortably funny: The laughs come because people's responses are so absurd."

"Bowling for Columbine" is a blast of non-stop images, including a hilarious cartoon about U.S. history that's narrated by a talking bullet."

She's "banned" from going downtown, threatening people, assaulting police officers, or encouraging others to commit crimes.

Way to fight crime, Britain! Tell crooks that they shouldn't be crooks, then set them loose on a defenseless nation!

Here's the transcript of what turned out to be quite an informative and "gonzo" exchange."

"Politicians thrive by selling cosmetic solutions to problems. But successfully solving those problems puts bureaucrats out of business. Nowhere are those two principles more clearly at work than in the delay, debate, deliberation and duplicity over the issue of whether to allow airline pilots the right to choose to carry firearms in the cockpit to deter and defeat terrorism in our nation's skies."
