"As Project Safe Neighborhoods, the centerpiece of President Bush's crime fighting program, comes into effect, a new study from the Cato Institute finds that it is unconstitutional, wreaks havoc on federal courts, allows prosecutorial mischief affecting the racial composition of juries, and will likely lead to a mindless "zero tolerance" policy for technical infractions of gun laws."

I didn’t think too much about it. I just did what every one else was doing- buying guns. It was exciting- I’d never owned a gun before, and it was kind of novel to have one. Over the next few years, I amassed a small arsenal, just like the ones my friends in the church had..."

"Unless Congress reverses the decision, the government's denial of guns to airline pilots for cockpit protection means the last line of armed defense against terrorists aboard aircraft will be federal air marshals ... too few to ride every flight. And no marshals are deployed on the thousands of daily U.S. air cargo flights using planes as big and dangerous as the ones hijacked and slammed into the Pentagon and the World Trade Center on Sept. 11."

--In other words, 'I'm against gun control, that's why I support a federal ban on armed pilots...'??? Ri-ight...

"Praise for Project Safe Neighborhoods comes from quarters as diverse as Handgun Control, Inc. and the National Rifle Association. -- Project Safe Neighborhoods is an affront to the constitutional principle of federalism. The initiative flouts the Tenth Amendment by relying on federal statutes that have no genuine constitutional basis. Moreover, the program will very likely lead to overenforcement of gun laws and open the door to prosecutorial mischief affecting the racial composition of juries."
