" 'She put the knife to my stomach and told me not to scream. She took my credit cards and my checks,' said Sanchez. 'I was so scared I was shaking.' "

So, what does this mean? Is there now going to be legislation for pocketknife registration, waiting periods, background checks, and carry permits? One day they will stop targeting the tools, and target the criminals.

... "Whether or not you dig it as a personal philosophy, 'diversity' makes a poor legal concept. It was not intended to be precisely defined, but instead woozy and fluffy and soft-focus. It makes a fabulous bumper sticker: 'Celebrate Diversity.' But it makes a poor legal concept to enshrine at the heart of the U.S. Constitution, which is where Swingin' Sandra's vote put it last week."

"The correct term is 'racial quotas,' but that's too bald, too clear. So its proponents came up with the coy evasion of 'affirmative action.' But over the years that also became tarnished. Hence the invention of 'diversity.' Who could be against 'diversity'? Who wouldn't want to celebrate it? It's the perfect enlightened vapidity."

"But whoever thought it'd fly as a legal concept? Last week, the court had before it two models of University of Michigan diversity: In the first version--the undergraduate school's system--they give you 20 points for being black. You need 150 points to get in. So, by being born black, you're 13 percent of the way there." ...

"But this brings us back to the original question: how appropriate is it for us to decide the question of weaponry using a two hundred year-old document? ... the Constitution wrong, and wrong for a very simple reason: it's old."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
