"Last Wednesday, Mayor Daley convened a roundtable discussion at the Harold Washington Library whose title says it all: 'Protecting our Children from Violence.' If you're like me, the problem of violence is at the top of the list of problems that plague our youth, especially in major metropolises where access to guns is often deadly."

"what have our intelligence agencies done since September 11?"

"they asked for, and received, a host of new powers in an anti-terror bill, including the right to engage in secret searches, warrantless Internet surveillance, warrantless access to phone records, and a requirement that retailers report "suspicious" customer transactions to the Treasury."

"Meanwhile, ... the feds have been ... smearing anyone who asks the obvious follow-up questions."

"After I called for a boycott of the airlines last month, I was inundated with hundreds of e-mails advising me that you readers were already doing exactly that."

"Recent reports suggest the airlines are starting to feel the pinch financially despite the optimistic pronouncements of the same Wall Street types that gave Enron a glowing bill of health. Yet, amazingly, other reports indicate the abusive nature of airline and airport employees toward passengers is increasing."

276 days in the Detention Center on a money-laundering charge that was dropped. When he was released, he found that West Memphis prosecutors had seized his auto and cash at the time of his arrest. His lawyer is trying to get his money back, without success -- another example of forfeiture power abuse in *suspected* (not convicted) drug cases.

"Schools are so busy telling everyone else's story, there's no time for our own. At its 2001 convention, the National Education Association passed resolutions supporting multicultural education and global education. Absent was any suggestion that students should receive an American education."

"Only here do our elites cringe at the thought of teaching students that there's something special and unique about their homeland. They are traitors of the heart..."

YES - The Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms does not stop at campus gates. Students should have the ability to keep themselves safe and it would be an effective crime deterrent.

NO - Protection and safety should be left to the police. Firearms have no place whatsoever on campus.

"Forgive me. For a little while, after Sept. 11, I actually believed our government might respond to the terrorist attacks with some common-sense, self-defense measures and policies."

"Boy, was I a dope."

"Despite the fact that polls of even gun-control advocates show 77% favor arming airline pilots to avoid hijackings, the Bush administration refuses to heed the call."

Shoot down the damn plane, but don't give the pilot a gun

"Yes ladies and gentlemen, in their infinite wisdom they have decided that they would rather shoot down airliners with F-16's, certainly killing all on board, than to let the pilots arm themselves as a last line of defense against two bit terrorists with box cutters trying to commandeer their plane. I guess the Bush and Ashcroft regime aren't as "gun friendly" as they would have us to believe, and this speaks volumes to their lip service to the Second Amendment."

"OUR WAR on terror is turning schizophrenic. Abroad we search out the enemy and attempt to destroy him, while here at home pre-September 11 political divisions and politically correct ideas have slowed us down. In the days following September 11 there was nothing that this country its elected leaders and its people -- would not or could not do to combat those who perpetrated the attacks on America."

"WHAT has become of our police force? When I was a child, I used to salute cops and they would return the salute with a smile. They were heroes in my neighborhood in Kamuning, Quezon City. But that was years ago, if I have to confess my age."

"Now, many policemen have become terrorists; for many years now, they have become bugbears of civilian population. People give way to them in crowded streets not out of respect but out of fear."

The official editorial position of The Morning Call appeared in today's edition. After reading it, please type a response and send it to the paper.

This newspaper serves the greater Lehigh Valley of PA which is a hotbed of anti-gun activity. A small group of us have been fighting back but we grow weary of the anti-gun drum beat from the newspaper. We could sure use some help on this one.

"At one time, political correctness was annoying. Then it became a threat to our culture. And now, it has become flat-out self-destructive insanity. Political correctness has become an actual mental illness, causing people to refuse to acknowledge the world around them, even if they risk danger or death from their denial. And we cannot mount an effective defense against the terrorist attack while denying reality."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. C. S. LEWIS
