" 'By their fruits ye shall know them.' And by their nuts as well."

"The acorns of any presidential administration never fall very far from the tree -- thus, the remarks made last week by one of George W. Bush's appointees to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission give us a pretty fair indication of what the future will look like if the Regime's seeds of tyranny ever come to full flower."

"Someone has posted a stark reminder for the thousands of Louisiana State University students returning next week for the fall semester: 'Killer on the loose!!! Please be careful. Love, Mom.' "

"It's not clear who put up the signs along a tree-lined path near a popular campus lake. But with no arrest in the serial slayings of three women and growing fear in Louisiana's capital, many parents are repeating the same message."

"Since the slayings began last September, merchants report higher sales of guns and pepper spray to women. And women say they refuse to walk alone in the city of 230,000. A task force has been set up to find the serial killer and determine whether any of the city's 37 unsolved murders of women over the past decade are linked."

"Testosterone is in again. Witness the ascent of Dr. Richard Carmona, the true-to-life hero nominated by President Bush for the post of surgeon general and recently confirmed, unanimously, by the Senate."

"The confirmation process reflects our rediscovered consensus that real men aren't afraid to use force — even deadly force — when necessary to protect a woman from a violent predator."

Provocative E-mail Offends Some Party Members
-------
"The e-mail stated: 'I look forward to the day when we offer Summary Street Trials, in the streets, in public offices, motel rooms, coffee shops, where ever these bastards lurk. We, the American Sovereign People, are administering justice under laws of war and treason, strictly, mercilessly, and swiftly.' "

"Stanley (pictured, left) thanked the writer, adding, 'I will forward and when the day comes, and it will, America will be prepared for the traitors day in the people's court.' "

"The exchange prompted several Libertarians to file a complaint Thursday. They want the party's state board to conduct a hearing and perhaps remove Stanley from the party."

"Some Libertarians claim Stanley's actions violated party principals that prohibit the initiation of physical force against others."

"Stanley said the comments in the e-mail were not his."

STRATFORD, CT. — "The Town Council wants the Charter Revision Commission to consider barring tax delinquents from holding elective and appointed office and forcing existing town officials to pay up or leave office."

"People should be able to vote for candidates whether the candidates owe taxes or not," said [Councilman Robert] Blake. "This is an elitist proposal. Maybe some voters identify more with someone who can't afford to pay their taxes than someone who can."

ORIGINAL TITLE: "Gardener's Shock as Gun Found"
-------
"A man found a loaded gun while clearing weeds from his back garden."

"The replica handgun had been put in a sports bag and shoved behind plants and shrubs."

"It was discovered as the man, who lives off Radford Road, New Basford, Nottingham, was renovating his house and back yard."

"Police are trying to discover if the weapon had been used in a crime."

"The 31-year-old home owner said: 'I was appalled. There have been kids wandering into the garden for some time - any of them could have picked it up.' "

"Police tests revealed it was an imitation handgun capable of discharging 8mm blank cartridges."

"There was six blanks in the chamber but the gun was jammed."

QUESTION:
How can you fit "six blanks in the chamber" of a handgun -- even a 'blank' gun?

ORIGINAL TITLE: ""
-------
"THE Macapagal administration has pulled out all the stops in its campaign to crush the communist movement in this country. It has aligned the country behind the United States expansion, beyond its borders, of its global war on terrorism by tagging the Communist Party of the Philippines and its military arm as 'foreign terrorist organizations.' "

"Demonstrating a puppetry not seen since the end of the Cold War, the administration has dredged up old charges against Rep. Satur Ocampo, former spokesperson of the National Democratic Front in the peace talks with the government, and his wife Carolina Malay, for 'illegal possession of firearms.' "

KY: "No weapons ban for Klan rally"

"County attorney says such an ordinance would violate state law; event set for Aug. 31"
-------
"There won’t be any weapons ban on county property during the Ku Klux Klan rally Aug. 31."

"Warren County Fiscal Court approved a first reading of the ban on Aug. 9. It was scheduled for final approval at the Aug. 23 meeting, and would have banned “weapons, of any kind, whatsoever” on county property – most significantly, on the Warren County Courthouse grounds, where the rally is to be held – only for Aug. 31."

“We do not have that on next week’s agenda for a second reading,” Warren County Judge-Executive Mike Buchanon said. “After further conversations with the county attorney’s office and local law enforcement, they assured us that they could handle public safety issues in other ways, and that it was unnecessary for us to do that.”

"Another reason for its hasty removal is a potential conflict with state law. Kentucky Revised Statute 65.870 prohibits local governments from regulating firearms."

"A group of local law enforcement officials...recommended the weapons ban..."

TEXT OF REFERENCED STATUTE:
65.870 Local firearms control ordinances prohibited.
No city, county or urban-county government may occupy any part of the field of regulation of the transfer, ownership, possession, carrying or transportation of firearms, ammunition, or components of firearms or combination thereof.

Effective: July 13, 1984

On most days, messages sent to the Boeing 747 are ordinary: maintenance items or reports of bad weather. On this day, Sept. 11, before sunrise over the Pacific Ocean, the warning is unlike any he has seen. Hijackings? Terrorist attack? Taking off from Narita, Japan, just hours before, Hosking, 56, looked forward to heading home to Los Angeles, where his wife would be waiting."

FL, US: "Terror fight builds as officers are sworn to aid INS"

"The number of investigators with Immigration & Naturalization Service powers in Central Florida doubled from five to 10 Thursday morning when the first class graduated from a pilot counterterrorism program."

"All five are local law-enforcement officers who underwent six weeks of training in Orlando with the federal INS."

"A total of 35 investigators assigned to the state's seven domestic-security task forces passed the program designed to offset a statewide shortage of INS agents available to investigate terrorism."

"Immigration attorneys and law-enforcement officials previously described INS enforcement abilities as little more than an illusion in Central Florida. INS intends to hire 10,000 employees by the end of September to end nationwide staffing shortages."

CONSIDER: INS has lost machineguns and laptop computers that contain critical data. They approved a visa for a 9/11 terrorist who'd been dead for months and who had taken thousands of Americans with him.

Does it really make sense to funnel 10,000 more employees, at taxpayer expense, into an agency with such obvious problems?

FL: Sheriff's Deputy urges "using fingers, keys or pens to defend against an attacker"

Women not encouraged to use firearms in self-defense...
-------
"One way that women learned about safety that night was to join in the hands-on, self-defense seminar taught by Broward Sheriff's Deputy Joe Williams."

"Williams emphasized using fingers, keys or pens to defend against an attacker."

"But he said the best weapon to use is a cell phone to call for help." [emphasis added]

"And that was part of the message of all the Night Out Against Crime events -- that police will be there to help when needed."

KABA NOTE: Deputy Williams' saying "the best weapon to use is a cell phone" is rather odd considering the fact that there's a large caliber weapon on his side at all times. Any woman who embraces his hypocritical advice and gets injured in an attack is encouraged to sue his department -- and him personally.

"Ryan Scott probably should consider himself lucky that he wasn't arrested for trying to carry firearms onto an airplane. True, there were a few extenuating circumstances: Ryan is only 9, and the guns were toys that no one would mistake for actual weapons."

"But rules are rules, and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) lists 'toy weapons' among its 'Items Prohibited in Aircraft Cabins.' So when Ryan tried to take a rubber, four-inch G.I. Joe rifle and a few miniature toy pistols aboard a flight at the Central Wisconsin Airport earlier this month, he was nabbed."
 

PETA Launches Attack on Sport Fishing

KABA NOTE: While this isn't directly related to the right to keep and bear arms, the PETA folks have shown, repeatedly, that they'd like to see guns go away. It's good to keep tabs on them -- and plenty of fishing enthusiasts are also gunowners. So here's the latest on PETA...
-------
"For many Americans, 'fishing' conjures up images of a quiet lake or gentle stream with man and nature at peace."

"But not everybody sees it that way."

" 'We're trying to get fishing banned in all state parks,' PETA’s Bruce Friedrich said."

"People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says fishing is a violent and cruel sport that victimizes the innocent inhabitants of the nation's waterways. They've initiated a campaign demanding states ban the time-honored sport."

New Zealand: Armed theft victims 'warned' by police 'they must back down' to thieves
Submitted by: Doug Charette

ORIGINAL TITLE: "'No guns' warning to theft-hit avocado growers"
-------
"Katikati police have warned Bay of Plenty avocado growers to think twice before taking the law into their own hands by arming themselves against fruit rustlers."

"Growers in the Athenree area have lost the equivalent of around 2500 trays of export avocados to thieves in recent weeks -- about $60,000 worth."

"Grower Bruce Rapley was the worst hit, losing about six tonnes of harvest-ready fruit from his trees this week -- a loss of potential income of up to $15,000."

"Outraged at the threat to their livelihoods, growers are setting out at night in groups to stake out their orchards. Some are taking guns."

"But Katikati Senior Constable John Fitzgerald today warned of the perils of carrying firearms."

" 'I appreciate that these growers have a lot at stake, because it is their livelihoods. But everyone is subject to the law of the land and (growers) would be dealt with if they confronted anyone with a firearm.' "

" 'If they find people on their orchard, they must back down and call the police. It's unlikely the offenders will be carrying firearms,' said Mr Fitzgerald." [emphasis added]

KABA NOTE: Requiring landowners victimized by high-dollar thieves to "back down" is pure abuse of power and would not fly here in America. Common law, backed by centuries of legal doctrine, gives any free human being the right to protect property and livelihood.

Unfortunately, it appears that the local law enforcement community in this area of New Zealand doesn't respect basic, centuries-old rights -- which means there will probably eventually be a confrontation between the people and the authorities.

"They wanted to know where I had thrown my gun, the one they had "seen me with" while they were cruising around the block."
