"I spent last week in Pittsfield, Maine, at a symposium on modern war called by Colonel Mike Wyly, USMC retired. Col. Wyly was one of the heroes of the maneuver warfare movement in the Marine Corps in the 1970s and 80s, and when he suggests it’s time for a new effort, people listen. ..." ...

"But – and here was the kicker – the new service has to keep us safe without pushing America further toward Big Brother, the all-powerful, centralized, national security state represented by the Department of Homeland Security, the 'Patriot Act' and much else coming out of Washington."

"So what should this new 4GW armed service be? The answer of our working group at the symposium was, 'a militia.'" ...

ON THURSDAY, JULY 1, 1993, a nondescript man stepped off an elevator on the 34th floor of 101 California St., a sleek, granite high-rise in downtown San Francisco, and entered the plush law offices of Pettit & Martin. Dressed in a dark business suit and carrying a black attaché case, he might have passed for an attorney returning from a late lunch."

"He set his case down and from beneath his jacket pulled out three semiautomatic pistols, which he came prepared to reload with hundreds of rounds of ammunition. ..." ...

"Louis David Drexel was convicted of first-degree murder, home invasion and residential burglary in the death of Ronyale White." ...

"Defense attorneys argued that the shooting was not intentional and took place during a struggle for the gun."

"But prosecutors played a tape during the trial from a cassette recorder that White had hidden in her jacket on the night of May Third, 2002. It recorded the last of three 9-1-1 calls she made to authorities before being shot in the head."

"On Nov. 18, 1993, a top state criminologist warned Virginia lawmakers that a new kind of violence was tugging at the commonwealth's social fabric."

"'Around the year 2004, 2005, we're going to have a great crime wave unprecedented in Virginia's history,' Richard P. Kern told state senators ..." ...

"It is 2005, but rather than a crime wave of epic proportion, Virginia and the rest of the country enjoy some of the lowest crime rates since the 1970s. Not only were the prognosticators wrong about a crime wave, but they also failed to predict an epic drop in crime." ...

"HB 2325, NRA-backed legislation making much needed reforms to the Arizona concealed weapons law (CCW) is now in effect. ... Most importantly, the legislation reduces the number of training hours required of first-time CCW permit applicants from 16 to eight. Evidence from other ... states indicates that this change will dramatically increase the number of law-abiding firearms owners who obtain permits. The training required of permit renewal applicants is also reduced from four hours to two hours. Permit holders who apply for their second or subsequent permit renewal after August 12, 2005, will no longer be required to submit fingerprints with their applications ... Permits are now valid for five years, instead of four years." ...

"Gun violence? What gun violence? We have a very expensive national gun registry that was put into place to ensure that every firearm in Canada can be tracked. We have cumbersome regulations in place that make it more difficult for Canadians to buy guns. We have armies of bureaucrats shuffling paper to and fro to make sure that everything related to guns in this country is all very above-board and law-abiding." ...
