Barr Exam - Why I'll miss the "worst drug warrior in Congress"

"As a freshman, Barr led the fight to repeal the federal ban on so-called assault weapons, an arbitrary abridgment of the right to keep and bear arms that targets guns based on their militaristic appearance. He also introduced an amendment limiting the scope of the Gun-Free School Zones Act to conduct that was already illegal under state or local law."

"Such efforts did not have broad support from the general public or Barr's fellow Republicans. His battles with gun controllers reflected his readiness to criticize the government for overstepping its proper bounds, even when party leaders might have preferred that he keep his mouth shut." ...

"Protesters dodged pepper spray and a few rounds of non-lethal ammunition fired by riot police during a running, seven-hour scuffle in downtown Portland around a hotel where President Bush was spending the night."

"Many of the protesters criticized a new forest initiative Bush had announced earlier Thursday on a visit to southern Oregon, before flying to Portland for a fund-raiser for U.S. Sen. Gordon Smith."

"Several hundred demonstrators marched toward the Hilton Hotel after Bush's arrival there, some chanting 'Drop Bush, Not Bombs!' "

"Riot police wearing helmets walked into the area, pushing activists with their batons. Some activists fell. Police then fired aerosol canisters of pepper spray at the protesters."

"One protester showed television cameramen a large, red welt on his leg from a non-lethal round fired from a riot police gun."

"Later in the day, about 150 demonstrators blocked vehicle access to Morrison Bridge. Cars honked their horns and police moved in, again firing pepper spray."
 

FL: Residents evacuated after weapons found in doctor's home; doctor arrested

FULL TEXT BELOW...
-------
"Residents have been allowed back into a group of townhouses in Seminole, Florida."

"They were evacuated last night, when authorities found a supply of guns and explosives in a neighbor's home."

"Police were called by the man's wife -- who said he was acting unstable."

"Sheriff's deputies took Robert Goldstein into custody."

"Prosecutors say the podiatrist will probably face charges."

"A police detective says officers found as many as 40 weapons -- including 50-caliber machine guns and sniper rifles."

"He says Goldstein has a license for those weapons."

"But he also says there were more than 30 explosive devices -- including hand grenades and a five-gallon gasoline bomb."

"Police say they don't know why he was stockpiling the weapons."

ANOTHER REPORT:

The BATF says the doctor was "targeting Islamic mosques, education center." For that report, which includes alleged details of this alleged plot, click here.

It's too bad the BATF has such a longstanding history of lying and deception; it'd be nice to be able to trust what they say. However, anything BATF says is suspect, by anyone who's followed their activities closely -- so it's hard to trust that a single word of this story is true. It may all in fact be true... but BATF's involvement makes the whole thing smell fishy.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and 'Child Pornography'
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

ORIGINAL TITLE: "Fired airport security trainee arrested on child pornography charges"
-------
"A former airport security trainee who was fired last month has been arrested after federal agents who searched his home said they found child pornography on his computer." [The "federal agents" were BATF -- the notorious lying, bumbling idiots among federal law enforcement agencies.]

"Avrahom Yeshurom Kaiser, 39, was fired from his job at Mobile Regional Airport after authorities said they taped him boasting he could sneak weapons onto airplanes." [It's illegal to state a fact now, is it? Uncomfortable for an airline to have someone stating the obvious -- that their "security" is a joke?]

"Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms then searched the Tillman's Corner house where Kaiser lives with his mother and stepfather." [Forgot to seize their house?]

"The search came after fellow employees notified supervisors of Kaiser's claims that he knew how to get around security and how to make explosives, according to a Secret Service complaint filed Wednesday." [BATF can search your home because you state an obvious fact and make it known that you know how to put a match to some gasoline?]

"ATF agents found no weapons or explosives during their search of the home, but they did seize a computer and more than 250 computer disks."

"One ATF agent observed 'a large amount' of pornographic material in Kaiser's bedroom, some of which was sadomasochistic, the complaint states." [Is possession of S&M pictures now illegal? Or is this merely part of the demonization process, so BATF can justify its "raid" -- and its existence -- without getting in trouble for yet another in a long, long line of pure fishing expeditions?]

"Agents examined some of the disks and found at least two pornographic images involving children under 12, the document states."

QUESTIONS:

1) Out of 250 "computer disks," if it's even true there were two images of naked children among them -- after all, a rewritable disk can have images added with a few keystrokes -- one must wonder: how many agents pored over 250 disks worth of porn to find two mere pictures? Did they order pizza?

2) Since when is BATF in the "child porn enforcement" business? Or, since there weren't any firearms or explosives, did BATF have to justify trashing someone's home by making an arrest so they don't look like the overbearing jackbooted thugs many Americans believe them, with good reason, to be?

NOTE: None of the above is to suggest that the guy whose porn collection is being closely studied by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Child Pornography is an upstanding citizen. He may very well be a Class A Jerk, or much worse. But from the looks of this "report" -- a clear and obvious hit piece, if ever there was one -- the BATF is working feverishly, at taxpayers' expense, to manufacture problems.

Gunowners ought to concern themselves over the fact that the BATFCP has added that CP to its name, too. You can have an image downloaded to your hard drive without your knowledge -- any time, any day, in about two seconds. What's more, the federal anti-Second-Amendment Fishing Expedition In Your Closet creeps can claim they found "child pornography" in your home even if they brought their own child porn disk with them on the "raid".

Dozens of people shouted at police, smashed windows and assaulted members of the media after a 10-year-old boy was injured by a bullet that ricocheted from a police officer's gun.

"Crowds surrounded a city bus and several media vehicles, smashing their windows. A KMSP-TV car was set on fire."

The officer was shooting at a pit bull dog that had been turned loose on police who were trying to serve a search warrant on a house suspected of narcotics activity. But the bullet hit concrete and ricocheted into the arm of the boy who wasn't in the line of fire, a police spokeswoman said.

Officials are investigating allegations that in the aftermath of the shooting a white police officer said: "You all got one of ours. Now we got one of yours."

"A ruling ordering the government to pay R1.6m in damages to a man who was shot by his neighbour, an aggressive alcohol abuser who should not have been allowed to own firearms, was confirmed by the Supreme Court of Appeals on Thursday."

"The Cape High Court initially turned down the claim by Dirk van Duivenboden, but a full Bench of the same court later upheld it."

"Licences to possess firearms are not issued to enable the holders to shoot themselves, or to shoot innocent persons who happen to be in the way, and least of all to enable them to shoot the police, nor do firearms belong in the hands of drunks," he said.

"Critics of the tactics used in the investigation say the Bush administration's broad approach has led to an erosion of civil rights and few terrorist arrests."
