Let's see... FBI has competent field investigators who have pre 9-11 investigations blocked by central command.

Goverment response: Increase centralization.

Lets see... (allegedly) foreign agents penetrate security (see above) and strike a painfull blow to America; their hatred supposedly directed at America's freedom.

Goverment response: Increase suspect intelligence agencies ability to spy on Americans and enforce retracting freedoms.

It's now confirmed: Plans to attack al Qaida were reviewed 2 days before 9-11, as reported here.

The other pages on this excellant site add up to a great read for a nite or 2 and will leave a person "well up" on pertinant info regarding the precursors to 9-11.

Those that would steal our freedoms will use our lack of knowledge, if we let them.

--She did everything the police told her to do, got a restraining order, got a cell phone, filed charges. The police knew he was after her & she was on the phone with the police when she was shot in the middle of rush hour traffic.

Another defective restraining order failed to stop the bullets.

She forgot to do the single most important thing in life, train & arm herself!

"If the state legislature wanted towns to override a state permit to carry handguns, there would have to be a state statute to say the towns could do that."

Darren LaSorte, state liaison for the NRA, agrees, noting the 1984 ruling explains "political subdivisions are preempted from regulating firearms in any manner."

KABA Note: So NRA argues that cities don't have authority to preempt the 2nd Amendment-- but states do. Ask yourself (and them) why they never sue based on 2A.

"Why does disarming law-abiding citizens rank so high on liberals' agenda? Is it merely because they find weapons repulsive? Or do they fear that others share their own repressed desire to kill those who disagree with them? They don't trust their fellow citizens – is this a projection of their own fear that they are not to be trusted?"

"I'm sorry to disappoint you critics, but these guideline changes have nothing to do with squelching political dissenters and everything to do with preventing terrorist murders of Americans." -- David Limbaugh
