NJ: One person to blame in woman's death
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"Like pit bulls, guns and a bottle of Jack Daniel's, all-terrain vehicles aren't to blame when some innocent person is killed by one."

"So all the politicians shouting for legislation that would ban the popular vehicles from city streets should sit down, shut up and not use a tragedy to get their name in the paper."

KABA NOTE: This article definitely has a relation to blaming inanimate objects for crimes committed with them -- a favorite pasttime of the anti-self-defense critters.

"At the tender age of 11, I won a 15-pound turkey with a 12-gauge shotgun at a local event we called a 'Turkey Shoot.' [B]ut it did not warp my 'fragile wittle mind.' In fact, I learned many valuable lessons from it and the proceeds from the event went to provide funding for a local Volunteer 911 Rescue Squad. Boy, remember the days when we did not need government to provide our every need and we actually provided things for ourselves?"

"The whistle-blower whose complaints of investigative bungling rattled the FBI said yesterday that the bureau must trim its obstructionist bureaucracy and change a 'don't rock the boat' culture if it wants to prevent terrorist attacks."

"Special Agent Coleen M. Rowley told the Senate Judiciary Committee that the FBI's failure to pursue leads last summer that might have led to the plotters of the 9/11 attacks was the fault of a cumbersome bureaucracy that favors inaction to avoid risk."

"Paw Paw is gone now, but his words are not. The United Nations is still the biggest threat to gun-ownership today. Unless you count the idiot politicians we've sent to Washington, D.C."

"When I finally got on the Internet and began to do some exploring, I began to see just how big an issue guns and gun-ownership really was. There were all sorts of freedom issues and guns figured pretty prominently."

Arrest at the Air Force Academy May 2002

The free speech activity of a small group of people was interupted by combined Air Force and local policia, creating a potential for (legal) precedent setting behavior by law enforcement.

By attacking civil rights in small events where a signifigant number of people are not likely to notice, the Bill of Rights takes lots of little hits; barely noticed as the hammer from D.C. attempts to pulverize them from on high.

"At least 40 homeland security directors had the new responsibilities added to existing jobs."

"Why Be an Armed Liberal?"

A liberal explains why it's important for citizens to be able to keep and bear arms.

"Ive actually gotten a fair number of emails asking me this; they presuppose that the only valid position for a liberal is to be disarmed, and the only valid position for a gun owner is to be a conservative. Im neither. I own guns, and have spent a fair amount of time, energy and money becoming at least moderately competent with them. And let me state bluntly that while the politic thing for shooters to say in public is "I just shoot [trap and skeet] [a few targets] [to hunt birds].", that I do all those things, and in addition have trained hard to become competent in defending myself by, if necessary, shooting people."

The families of several Columbine shooting victims have settled lawsuits with the school district and sheriff's department, with one attorney saying the time has come to "bring this to a close."

The lawsuits accused officials of failing to do enough to prevent the slayings at Columbine High School in 1999 and botching the response afterward.
 

Japan: Man Slain with Umbrella in Dispute Over Manners

A Japanese man was so enraged by an acquaintance's failure to address him with an honorific that he stabbed the man to death with an umbrella, police said on Saturday.
It was the second killing with an umbrella in Japan in less than a month.

When Umbrellas are outlawed, only outlaws will have umbrellas.
Had the innocent victim been armed, I suspect this would have ended differently.
