"The effort to curtail violence through gun control has failed. Gun control has not reduced crime or made America safer. Hidden behind liberal activists' intentional and calculated effort is the true intent to ultimately confiscate and forever disarm the law-abiding, every day citizen in America. Once we are incapable of rising up and defending ourselves not only against criminals, but against the tyranny of our own government as well, we are rendered helpless against total control."

"More New Yorkers bought guns last fall following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, but interest so far this year appears to be waning, records show..."
...
It's "good news" that people are not choosing effective means of self-defense?

Just like the computer surge. Eventually evrybody will have one. Then the buying slows. Not tough to figure out.
 

WA: Ferry searches an acceptable tradeoff

"If it's reasonable to conduct such thorough searches of passengers about to board commercial airlines, it's surely reasonable to randomly check vehicles about to board ferries. ... (Nearly as many passengers sail on state ferries each year as fly in and out of Sea-Tac Airport.)"
...
Despite the fact that this is not 'reasonable,' there is a difference. There have been no attacks on ferries since they are not a soft target. Yet.

"Select any moment in American history and you can find agitation about the meaning of the Constitution. Now, though, the pondering, probing and hand-wringing have created something of a constitutional clamor."

"Is the Constitution under assault? Is the Bill of Rights under siege? Or is this just the normal give-and-take of a society always redefining its relationship with its government?"

"The Constitution is always at risk in times of crisis ..." -- Steven Shapiro

"A South Auckland family cowered in a bedroom behind a locked door early today as an armed intruder tried to bash his way in."

"Police say the man was armed with a revolver when he smashed his way through the front door of the suburban Mangere house at 12.10am."

KABA NOTE: In America, there's a pretty good chance this intruder would've been dead by the time the police arrived. Had he come to the home of our people, those chances only further increase.

"Most are black men, some Hispanic. More than 30,000 blacks embrace this faith behind bars every year."

KABA NOTE: If these numbers are true, one would think our federal authorities would be addressing the issue of prison recruitment for future "jihad warriors" who might intend violence against innocent people.

"Israel has had long experience with terrorism, though regrettably we may be catching up. So when a former airline security expert speaks, it is worth listening, especially since El Al has a perfect record in preventing terrorist attacks."

"In an interview, Shlomo Dror pointed out the differences between Israeli and American security methods. The Israelis search for weapons, but they concentrate on the passengers. Every passenger is checked against a list of potential terrorists."

Wein backs gun rights, supports abolishing the state income tax, advocates for "the elimination of pensions for elected officials," and wants to "do away with the state's mandatory helmet law for motorcyclists -- either that or give executive clemency to any rider convicted."

"Police estimate that New Zealanders could own nearly one million firearms, including 27,500 pistols."

"However, the actual number owned is not known because gun users only have to register automatic weapons, military-style semi-automatics and hand-guns."

"Police licencing and vetting manager Inspector Joe Green said about 27,500 pistols, 6800 military-style semi-automatic firearms and 3300 restricted weapons – a category that includes machineguns – were registered with police."

"Coalition for Gun Control spokeswoman Carol Ann Bradford said she was disappointed that gun control was not considered a more important issue in New Zealand."

"Ms Bradford said it seemed the public only got worried when there was a mass killing. New Zealand needed stronger gun controls."
