Asked Thursday about the giveaway, Bloomberg said, ``I think it's sick, is the nicest ways to phrase it.'

Van Cleave responded that the members of his organization are law-abiding citizens, including many retired military, police officers and firefighters.

``If you're saying these are sick people, then I'm proud to be sick,' Van Cleave said.
 

VA: A compromise on gun control

No guns for noncitizens. Hindsight is always 20/20, but if the shooter couldn't get a gun because he wasn't fully naturalized, the Virginia Tech shootings would have never happened.

Ed.: Yes, because self-defense isn't a fundamental Human Right or anything--it is a privilege bestowed only to genuine U.S. citizens.
 

OH: Yet another op-ed writer fantasizes gun control could prevent massacre

I don't even want to speculate on what types of insulting things Mr. LeMoult would say about the hundreds of thousands of women in this country who choose to exercise their right to bear arms for self-defense. But the truth, which he was either uninterested in or too lazy to find, is that Virginia did enforce a waiting period on Cho. The reason Cho waited more than a month between purchasing his handguns is that Virginia enforces a one-gun-a-month law, something that was no doubt sold as a 'sensible' gun law that would prevent a psychopath like Cho from 'going postal'. It did no such thing.

BEIJING: Doctors and nurses at a hospital in eastern China have told its administrators they will use police truncheons and wear helmets as a protection from attacks by angry patients.

...

The Health Ministry recorded about 10,000 attacks on hospital staff stemming from patient disputes last year, the China Daily reported.

A few weeks back, Mitt Romney was asked about what he disliked most about America. He couldn't come up with anything which made me ask myself, "Why the hell are you running for president if everything is perfect, Mitt!"

Ed.: Depending on your state of mind, this could either be funny, or disheartening. You've been warned. ;-)
 

Should We Go To War Over A Massive Cyber-Attack?

Estonian Defense Minister Jaak Aaviksoo, meanwhile, discussed the situation with NATO officials and later stated the following during an interview with British newspaper The Guardian: "At present, NATO does not define cyber-attacks as a clear military action. This means that the provisions of Article V of the North Atlantic Treaty, or, in other words collective self-defense, will not automatically be extended to the attacked country. Not a single NATO defense minister would define a cyber-attack as a clear military action at present. However, this matter needs to be resolved in the near future."

Ed.: When do cyber attacks warrant the use of arms?

But when I turned 21 and applied for a Florida carry permit like Dad's, he didn't do cartwheels or take me window shopping for a double-action hand cannon. His only acknowledgment was to take me out to the side of a road and pull me down beside the remnants of a recently flattened possum.

"Dead," Dad intoned, "is dead. No replays, no extra lives, no do-overs. Just like this road kill."
 

Ron Paul, a Man

The U.S. Founding Fathers from Thomas Jefferson on down were in many ways libertarian conservatives – just as is Ron Paul. They, too, famously, believed in a small federal government, private money and self-defense rather than adventurism. They would shocked and horrified by today's tax practices, by private "paper" money masquerading as public debt, and by the size of the federal government and its aggressive military policies.
 

Giuliani's ace in the hole? Hillary

"Rudy Giuliani is wrong on all the social issues, is wrong on the Second Amendment and is pretty much a blank slate on all other issues of importance to conservatives," Viguerie said. "If the Republican Party nominates him, it is saying to the American people that it has lost all purpose except the raw political desire to hold power."

Maybe so. But in '08, the desire to deny the Clintons political power might be the one thing that can hold Republicans together and bring them back.

We are here today with the freedoms that are protected by the Bill of Rights because of citizens protecting this country from foreign and domestic threats. There's not much one can do when terrorists bomb a building to kill innocent people. But when it comes to protecting your life, home and property, it won't be by a newspaper, a reporter or a protester freely speaking out. It will be by those who bear arms.
 

IN: Loopholes negate gun laws' intentions

The fact that Bubba Ludwig, a toothless, illiterate resident of Illinois can get a gun license, truly illustrates how defective our nation's firearm laws can be.

Now, before you get offended and accuse me of perpetuating an unfair "redneck" stereotype, let me make one thing clear: Bubba is 10 months old.

Illinois has no age restriction for gun permits, so after Bubba's father applied for the card and paid $5, Bubba had his very own gun license.
 

MD: Va. Tech alerts nation to need for common-sense gun laws

Let's be crystal clear: Responsible citizens may have legitimate reasons to own a gun. Hunting is part of our culture and, for a small percentage of our population, necessary for survival. Target practice is generally harmless, and some people feel a genuine need for a gun as protection. I don't think these folks oppose sensible gun regulation. But the NRA opposes virtually ANY regulation, no matter how violent our nation becomes, and even after Virginia Tech, Congress still grovels before the fanatical wing of the almighty gun lobby.
 

Another Anti-Gun Column Filled With Lies
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

What is it about anti-gunners that they just have to lie in their advocacy against guns? Do they lie because the facts make them look so bad? This time it’s the Washington Times’ turn to publish an anti 2nd Amendment piece based on several lies. This one, penned by an Alex Gerber, worries that gun control will “apparently be glossed over again” and claims that the evil “American gun culture” is so insensitive to have tolerated “some 14,000 firearm murders” in 2005.

Ed.: The linked piece seems paranoid, conspiratorial, xenophobic, and arguably seditious. I am left in the unenviable position of either approving this garbage, or censoring it. I strongly believe in a free market of ideas, so I will link to this here, in the hopes that the nastiness will sink and the cream will rise to the surface.
 

UK: 'Flying saucer' police spy camera takes to the skies

It looks more like the latest in saucepan technology than the future of crime fighting.

But police are confident that this miniature remote- controlled helicopter will be an invaluable weapon in the war against wrongdoers.

The Microdrone, measuring only 2ft between the tips of its eight rotor blades, was originally designed for military reconnaissance.

When it takes to the skies above Liverpool this summer, it will be the first time such a device has been put to civilian use in this country. ...

The drone was unveiled the day after Hampshire Deputy Chief Constable Ian Readhead said the sheer number of CCTV cameras operating today was creating an "Orwellian" society.

"But police had already been adding patrols near the stores. In fact, a police car had driven by the Broadway store last night about 10 minutes before the robber showed up."

Ed.: When seconds count, the police are only minutes away...

At the base of a small hill, many saguaros are pockmarked with bullet holes. So are signs warning "No dumping." A few saguaro arms are scattered on the ground. So are remnants of dead cholla cacti, fragments of clay pigeons and scores of spent shotgun shells. These sights are among the reasons that the Bureau of Land Management is proposing to ban target and other forms of recreational shooting inside this 129,000-acre monument. Hunting would still be allowed, but people could no longer fire bullets at discarded computers, TV sets or stoves and leave behind their shotgun shells as trash.

Dale Volker is an important man. He is the head of the Senate Codes Committee that decides which gun legislation will be voted on by our representatives in his chamber. He is also a former state trooper. I sat in his office a couple of weeks ago lobbying for the passage of the gun dealer bill, which would require gun dealers to: (1) remove guns from shop windows and lock them in a closet at night, (2) keep inventory, and (3) provide employees with simple but key training to recognize straw purchasers. Volker's assistant listened and agreed to talk with the senator about the bill. But the aide's initial reaction was that the senator probably would not be in favor of it.

A 45-year-old man was shot and injured by police outside his Hopkins apartment Saturday morning. He was brandishing a plastic look-alike handgun when an Allegan County sheriff's deputy fired a round, hitting him in the arm, police said.

Officers said the gun looked real, and the man approached them and refused to drop the object. Police had been looking for him on an earlier report of a home invasion and weapons assault out of Otsego, possibly at his estranged wife's house.

Having been a registered Democrat since the Ford administration, I know better than to say my party is a lead-pipe cinch in next year's presidential election. If there is any way to screw it up, the Democrats will find it. The wretched candidacies of Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis and John Kerry provide ample evidence of that. I am happy, then -- and somewhat amazed -- that in the wake of the recent massacre at Virginia Tech not one of the Democrats vying for the 2008 presidential nomination sallied forth to call for even more draconian gun-control laws.
 

IA: Local Ammunition Shipments Being Delayed

Full text:

Ammunition shipments to local gun shops and police departments are being delayed for months.

The cause for delay is because the U.S. Army has more than tripled its demand for small arms ammo from 426 million rounds in 2001, to 1.5 billion rounds last year.

Ammunition makers have ramped up production, but company officials say there have been order delays of up to a year.

"A gunman suspected of killing three people and himself said during a court-ordered mental evaluation that if he committed suicide, he would try to take a large number of people with him, police said Monday."

"Three months after that conversation with a psychiatrist, authorities say, Jason Hamilton shot and killed his wife at her home, then toted two assault rifles to a parking lot and fired a barrage of bullets into an emergency dispatch center across from a courthouse."

The import of voters who rely heavily on benefits from the U.S. government and who tolerate an almost total ban on guns in their native countries could lead to disastrous results for the Second Amendment and the rest of the U.S. Constitution. Anti-gun candidates could be elected quite easily provided they offer government handouts to the right people or appeal to voters based on their racial profile; i.e., pandering.
