"We believe that Congress acted in good faith in passing the Patriot Act. But, members were wise enough to make the most invasive changes to our rights a temporary situation."

"The Fourth of July is a good time to dedicate ourselves to paying attention to the upcoming debate over the matter and take a hard look at giving up freedoms that brave men and women have fought to preserve."

"History tells us that once we lose them, it's difficult to get them back."
 

An Excess of Power

"...The founding fathers understood that every right we have emanates from our right to private property. In this sense, 'private property' means not only the right to one's home and land, but also the right to own the product of one's labor. James Madison, the father of the U.S. Constitution, wrote in 1789, 'A man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.'"

"Today, as Americans celebrate the birthday of their nation, a good question to ponder is whether a group of people could come together from across the breadth of this land and actually agree on a set of principles to bind them together in nationhood."

"How would the Bill of Rights read?"

"Would great or mediocre minds insist on editing 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion ... '"?

"What on earth would a rewrite of the Second Amendment look like? Does the Constitution guarantee to the individual the right to own a gun? You can bet that ambiguous verbiage about 'a well-regulated militia' would vanish."
 

Ex-felons face roadblocks in regaining voting rights

"But many are split on whether states should make it easier for ex-felons to get their rights back. The American Civil Liberties Union of Washington is suing for ex-felons to get their rights back if they have served their prison terms but owe money. But a bill addressing that issue never even made it to the House floor for debate this year."

"'We don't let them get their gun rights back, and they shouldn't get their voting rights back unless they have demonstrated they are law-abiding citizens,' said David Muhlhausen, a senior policy analyst with The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. 'If you don't want to lose your voting rights, don't commit a felony.'"

"Earlier, I wrote about the decision to deny rehearing to the Seegars case at the DC Court of Appeals. I've now obtained more details on that ruling, including the full text of each statement accompanying the denial. The most interesting part of the additional information is Williams' statement; it suggests that had he not felt bound by precedent, he would have voted our way on the three-judge panel (as my guest-witness thought might happen)."

"PARLIAMENTARIANS gathered in Washington this holiday weekend from Europe and North America arrived just in time to witness the U.S. House of Representatives -- on the eve of the anniversary commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence -- trample upon the right of self-determination. Morphing themselves into city council members, a House majority overturned a city law and voted to allow D.C. residents to keep in their homes loaded shotguns and rifles, as well as handguns bought before 1976, unbounded by trigger locks or disassembled. The deed itself makes a mockery of Congress as a federal body. If the action is allowed to stand, however, the consequences could be even worse: The nation's capital will become a deadlier place in which to live."

"Statistics Canada issued a 'health report' this week that left the false impression that there was a link between the Liberals’ $2 billion firearms program and the decline in gun deaths. Statistics Canada should be embarrassed putting out a report that is so misleading in the way the data was presented. If bureaucrats were subject to peer-review, like academics, they would never get away with such a distortion."
