"The state Department of Education released the names of New Jersey's seven most dangerous schools Thursday, setting off a controversy over the criteria and reporting guidelines used to compile the list."

"The schools are the first to be designated as 'persistently dangerous' under terms of the No Child Left Behind legislation passed by the federal government." ...

"We have a zero-tolerance policy... If a student brings in a water pistol that looks like a gun, that's a violation. We want to send a message. Now that is hurting us."

-------
What a bright idea! Make an already admittedly dangerous school a victim disarmament zone, so no one can protect him or herself from those who will break the law.

"Wal-Mart is pulling pistol-style BB guns from its shelves in Norwalk, and a major sports retailer is considering doing the same as police try to halt a rash of vandalism and assaults with the air-powered handguns."

"The world's largest retailer will remove two models that look like high-caliber automatic weapons, Mayor Alex Knopp told The Advocate, of Stamford. The Sports Authority, the nation's largest sports retailer, is considering a similar move regarding seven models carried in its Norwalk store, city officials said."

"All in all, the city will be a much safer place because the weapons will be less available." ...

-------
Uh-huh. Just like Britain is a much safer country, with only 164 muggings a day in London after implementing their handgun ban.

"In much of the liberal media, large-scale confrontations between police and people who are breaking the law are usually reported in one of two ways. Either the police used 'excessive force' or they 'let the situation get out of hand.' "

"Any force sufficient to prevent the situation from getting out of hand will be called 'excessive.' And if the police arrive in large enough numbers to squelch disorder without the need for force, then sending in so many cops will be called 'overreacting.' "

"In a North San Jose cul-de-sac of grassy front lawns, the Jindeel family erected a tall cinder-block wall around the front of their home. They built a 7-foot wooden fence along the sides and back of their property, complete with gates for escape. All, they say, because of a neighbor who made their life miserable because they are Iraqi."

"On June 21, the family taped a tirade laced with obscenities, slurs on Iraqis and other chilling words -- 'Watch your children die. . . . Yeah, that's what you're going to do, watch your children die.' That night police arrested their next-door neighbor, Edward Crutchfield, on suspicion of a hate crime and making criminal threats, along with other charges."

That's when the family needs to arm itself and prepare for any eventuality.

"The saga of George Farr will continue at Camp Perry next week. It's a story of surprising marksmanship at America's most celebrated shooting event."

"Farr was an unlikely candidate for success when he traveled across the country as a member of a Seattle shooting club to compete in the National Rifle and Pistol Matches at Camp Perry in 1921. With only a few dollars in his pocket, the 62-year-old was issued a standard .30-caliber Springfield rifle on his arrival and given a handful of ammunition for the prestigious long-range Wimbledon Match."

"It was, therefore, refreshing to have a caller make the needed statements, statements that momentarily left the minister of truth speechless. 'We have a caller from, of all places, Berkeley, California.' Limbaugh set the stage by explaining that all residents in Berkeley are left-liberal. The caller explained that he was a 'true conservative,' and pointed out that he felt double-crossed by George W. Bush. That’s it! That’s exactly my own take: 'true conservative' and 'double-crossed!'

And to achieve his ends, he'll use the only weapon he knows how to manipulate: the law."

"Gun control is one of those notions that seems to make sense on the surface; that reasonable people are initially inclined to accept; that seems to offer an easy solution to a difficult problem. That is the problem with gun control. It is wishful thinking: simplistic, naïve, even juvenile. It is typical liberal thinking: social problems can be solved by putting words on paper in state and federal statute books. And not only liberals..."
