"President Bush's re-election campaign pushed the Patriot Act this week, calling on governors and state attorneys general to speak in its behalf and questioning Democratic rival John Kerry's willingness to do what it takes to protect the homeland."

"The speeches and press conferences extolling the incumbent's commitment to work "tirelessly to strengthen and secure our nation," in the words of Franklin County, Ohio, prosecutor Ron O'Brien, is further evidence of Bush's desire to move the issue of national security to the forefront."

"Vice President Dick Cheney... said the legislation adopted in the months after the 9/11 attacks 'solved some dramatic problems' regarding domestic security."

The list has been around since before the September 11 attacks, but increasingly the ritual closing ceremony has involved writing yet another check to the title company that runs the homebuyer’s name against that list."

"So, Sen. Feinstein and her 11 co-sponsors (the usual suspects) have thrown down the gauntlet, and a true showdown is shaping up. Once again, we must contact our Senators, ESPECIALLY those who voted against the AWB renewal amendment several months ago, to stand firm in their opposition to this ill-conceived and proven ineffective idea. Because the AWB renewal has enough votes in the Senate to pass, a filibuster is likely the only way it can be stopped there."

"The Senators who voted against the recent amendment renewing the ban need our support and encouragement to stand their ground, as it the rhetoric put forth by the anti-gun side will undoubtedly be intense and vicious."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

No charges will be filed in the death of the 4-year-old son of a city police officer who shot himself with his father's gun, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Investigators said Evan John Warsecke apparently found the loaded .32-caliber handgun atop a 7-foot-high dresser in his father's room last Wednesday evening.

"There is no evidence to suggest that criminal activity led to the boy's death," Benzie County Prosecutor Anthony Cicchelli said in a statement. No further investigation will be required, he added.

Evan John was the son of Traverse City officer Evan Warsecke, who lives with his wife and family in Benzie County. Evan John was one of six children.

" 'There's no law against shooting a gun in the county. However ... as the population grows and the cities grow outward, the area that might be safe for shooting, or that used to be safe for shooting, tends to shrink,' said Douglas County sheriff's spokesman Dwes Hutson."

"Hutson said it is best to find a remote location where you're not likely to run into a lot of people. It's also important to use some kind of backstop that stops the bullet without causing it to ricochet."

I say this because I want to be perfectly clear that your choice of arms has little to do with duck hunting or protecting yourself from crime and everything to do with standing athwart the plans of tyrants who would subjugate you and rule over you." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the constitution they don't like. — Alan Dershowitz
