"Seldom are there more disturbing patriotic obligations than challenging acts of betrayal by our leaders and other public servants. ... I refuse to fearfully sit in this stinking puddle of national humiliation, and be browbeaten by bureaucratic hoodlums with titles that suggest honorable intent. As a sovereign American citizen my stance was foreordained; I shall never yield." ...

"The stated purpose of these regulations is to foster a peaceful educational environment by preventing 'harassment' of certain protected groups. But this phony rationale is no longer going to fly under the Bush administration."
 

WI: Handgun position should be rethought (Letter)

"I’ve looked for a charitable way to write this, but the bald truth is that Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Mick Fink is either a highly ignorant law enforcement officer or he’s being intellectually dishonest about the effects of allowing Wisconsin citizens to carry concealed handguns."

"It is Deputy Fink’s duty as a professional to report what good things do happen – and not fearmonger about the bad things that 'might' happen."

"Some 35 other states have made the decision to trust law-abiding citizens to carry concealed handguns. Indiana has allowed this for many decades, and almost 400,000 Hoosiers currently have CCW permits. In some counties, about 10 percent of the residents own a carry license."

OR: Asking for help to save lives

"For each stage of child development, parents have a list of safety precautions on which they almost all agree: vaccinations, car seats, bicycle helmets, privacy on the Internet. For parents of allergic kids, concerns about pets and peanuts in the homes of friends can be paramount."

"But somehow, it is considered a breach of etiquette to ask if the parents of a child's friend have a gun in their home."

-------
It has little to do with etiquette and more to do with common sense. Unless the parent plans to examine the playmate's home for unsecure household chemicals, cutlery, power drills, swimming pools and car keys, this is yet another way to single out firearms as the resident "evil."

Asking doesn't save lives. It breeds distrust and paranoia among neighbors.

"Why does the PGC want the rifle? The PGC has filed charges against Floyd for killing an elk in violation of Title 34. I have a copy of Title 34, and it is perfectly legal for a landowner to protect his property against wildlife damage. (Last year 17 elk were killed for crop damage). Floyd had previously signed a sworn statement that he indeed killed the elk. Seeking the rifle was a bogus excuse. (The PGC must believe the turnip truck recently passed through the area.)"

"Ultimately, five WCOs and three State Police officers were involved in this shakedown, and I do mean shakedown. The officers wore bulletproof vests, and at one point had their hands on their weapons. This was not a pleasant situation and another clear example of an agency gone rogue."

"According to a government insider, the aim of the Extradition Agreement is to supplement all existing bilateral extradition treaties to which the United States was a party with various EU member states prior to June 25. It still includes the dual-criminality clause – and Article 10 of the treaty, which places U.S. extradition requests on an equal plane with a borderless European Arrest Warrant."

"And when prices rise so high that us proletariat trash can no longer afford to eat or pay the rent, this is typically when the course of civilization is suddenly altered. And perhaps that is why the ownership of guns is always under attack by the forces of the Left, which love to remove barriers to total government control. And if there is one thing that the government wants to control, it is crowds of us unthinking, uneducated, ill-tempered, bankrupt, starving bozos, like me and you..."

"If you have the right to give to one, you have the right to give to all; and, as the Constitution neither defines charity nor stipulates the amount, you are at liberty to give to any and everything which you may believe, or profess to believe, is a charity, and to any amount you may think proper. You will very easily perceive what a wide door this would open for fraud and corruption and favoritism, on the one hand, and for robbing the people on the other." ...

"When speaking with Capitol guards, and friends in Washington, they said: 'If you had been through what we went through on 9/11, and watched the black smoke billowing high in the sky - you would be glad these barriers and heavy security are in place.' Of course, I didn't tell them that that is exactly the reaction the government counts on. We are being thrown a 'freedom' curve that is disintegrating as fast as a summer-snow-ball and most Americans obliviously believe they are catching it!"

"This government was formed NOT to be a democracy, the most horrible form of government, but to be a republic, specifically a representative republic, in which the people were to rule their government. And here we discover how the Second Amendment works. Not through the actual act of owning arms, that only helps to reinforce our sovereignty, that does not even make us free, but through the right of being fully armed." ...

"A Hednesford man has been jailed for nine months after he admitted pointing a loaded ball bearing gun at police."

"Recorder Mr. John Higham QC told Steven West: 'Police officers are entitled to go about their duties without being threatened in this way and not be subjected to this fear.' "

-------
So why is it that British subjects are apparently not entitled to go about their lives without being threatened by armed criminals and unable to defend themselves with firearms?

They sold the victim's vehicle, which they as evidence and claimed it was a "clerical error." Wouldn't this damage the evidence for a third party investigator?
