WA: Cougar Attacks Horse in Barn

One more good reason to have that firearm handy...

"Reports of a cougar deep in rural areas would not be surprising, Woods said, but one in residential areas is another matter. Since the cat attacked a horse in a barn, rather than an elk, it may be an old cat that has become too slow to capture its normal prey, he said."

"Cougar sightings are common in Skagit County, with some of the cats being bold. In 1996, a cougar was spotted on the playground on Lyman Elementary School, leading to the erection of a fence to protect the children."

"Stormin' Norman's forces brilliantly zapped Saddam Hussein's mob in a record-breaking 100-hour ground war, actual U.S. casualties were a mere fraction of these two estimates – 147 Killed In Action and 457 Wounded In Action. At least at first look."

"But within weeks after our warriors took off their boots and hung up their rifles, dozens, then hundreds, of Gulf War vets became casualties. And as the years tick by, this figure has already grown to tens of thousands."
 

VA: Student Group Wants Law School Campus Gun Ban Lifted

"After two armed southwest Virginia law students stopped a campus shooting rampage in January, a Second Amendment group at a northern Virginia law school decided it was time to change their own school's ban on guns."

" 'We are trying to build a detailed and persuasive brief that would include statistics on increases in safety, decreases in violent crime when you do have concealed carry permit holders in a jurisdiction,' said Orest J. Jowyk, president of the Second Amendment group at George Mason University School of Law."

" 'I think the middle ground is to allow concealed handgun permit holders to carry just like they can anywhere else in Virginia,' he said. 'You provide extra safety to the student body that way.' "

KABA NOTE:

We've alerted our friends with Students for the Second Amendment of this situation in hopes they can offer support and join forces. If you aren't yet aware of SF2A, go visit their website, and urge your collegebound friends to check them out: http://www.sf2a.org

"According to Radio Canada, the union says the report proves that Customs officers need to protect themselves."

NOTE:

The cable style gun lock is also good for locking up a bike, tying your boat to a tree and many other things.

It is about time!!!!

"Critics of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are pushing for an end to the group's tax-exempt, non-profit status following revelations the organization gave money to eco-terrorists blamed for a Vail ski resort fire and other acts of violence."

QUESTION:

If gunowners were funding terrorists like PETA has apparently been doing, how long do you think it would have taken the BATF to kick a few doors in?

Bearing Arms May Leave You Uninsured

This report from Insight Magazine begins with a detailed look at the case where State Farm Insurance cancelled a gunowner's insurance policy. Then it goes a few steps further by revealing other companies' policies. ...

"Michael Arcaro, a spokesman for Prudential Insurance, says, 'It is our policy to insure the vast majority of guns, including sporting, hunting and historical guns. We prefer not to insure assault weapons, guns that are not used for target shooting or any weapons that are restricted by state law. We chose not to insure a person who has a shooting range because of the increased liability.' "

"Nationwide Insurance's policy is a carbon copy of Prudential's. According to Bob Sohovich, a spokesman for Nationwide..."

"The National Association of Insurance Commissioners tells Insight that there are no data on the number of complaints made by policyholders to state commissioners about cancellations due to ownership of firearms or shooting ranges. And the National Rifle Association (NRA), when asked whether it had received complaints from its members about insurance cancellation due to firearms in the home or private shooting ranges, actually responded: 'We'll have to check with our attorneys.' At press time the NRA still had not responded."

"Federal agents Tuesday rounded up about 100 Denver International Airport employees who are suspected of using false information to obtain jobs that gave them access to restricted areas."

"The detained workers included a pilot, food service workers and security workers."
-------
But the feds are all for instituting a "trusted flyer" program to allow certain passengers to forego the long orifice probes at security checkpoints? That program seems easier to infiltrate than an airport job.

"The final three minutes of hijacked Flight 93 are still a mystery more than a year after it crashed in western Pennsylvania-even to grieving relatives who sought comfort in listening to its cockpit tapes in April. But the FBI has clamped a tight lid of secrecy on the flight data recorder-which could best show how Flight 93 actually crashed-and on the cockpit voice recorder."

"Now the museum has four gleaming electric guitars ready to hand over to the first kids who turn in a handgun and agree to complete a course of after-school study, says museum director Tony Czech."

"So far there have been no takers. And some people are skeptical the program will work. Some are worried about having such kids around theirs."

IL: Dishonest Illinois Gun Prohibitionist Group Identifies the Enemies

"The Illinois Citizens for Handgun Control (ICHC) released their 2002 candidate ratings today."

"The ratings are given to Illinois Executive Branch, General Assembly, Congressional and U.S. Senate candidates."

Obviously, their "F" rating would fall somewhere near our "A" rating.

ABOUT THIS GROUP...

The "Illinois Citizens for Handgun Control" is an affiliate of "Americans for Gun Safety," funded by Monster.com socialist lying sack Andrew McKelvey -- according to the AGS website. When you look at their address, it's the same address as the one listed on the "Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence" website on their Contact Us page.

This is being brought to your attention to remind you of a blatant lie promoted by ICHV's spokescreep, Bob Williamson. While telling tall tales about the .50BMG rifle and ammunition, Pinnochio Williamson said:
"This is a weapon...that uses a cartridge the size of a ketchup bottle."

"Maryland Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert L. Ehrlich is willing to judge gun-control laws on their merits — do they actually work? — and if not, get rid of them."

"Mr. Ehrlich is right to focus attention on that malignant minority — and to seek to protect the freedoms of the law-abiding majority. Getting rid of senseless anti-gun laws would be a great first step."

"Mrs. Townsend and those of her ideological stripe respond with emotional sputtering and shrill demagoguery — Mr. Ehrlich is 'extreme,' he 'defies common sense,' he's a 'supreme conservative' — whatever that is — but rarely with a factual, reasoned response. Their dislike of guns is irrational and visceral — they seem to impute volition to the weapons themselves, not those who mishandle them."

The first raw lesson in the power of government:

"The students are instructed to bring all of their precious school supplies – their property – to the front of the classroom... They are told that the supplies belong to all of the class now, and the teacher will assume the responsibility of distributing the supplies as they are needed. "

"These are my supplies. My daddy bought them for me."

"Nope... They were yours. Now all those supplies belong to – guess who? The government!"
 

Unsafe at all times, author says [promoting SUV hatred]

Do you drive an SUV?

If so, don't read the next quote with food in your mouth. In his new book, here's what Keith Bradsher writes about SUV buyers:

"They tend to be people who are insecure and vain. They are frequently nervous about their marriages and uncomfortable about parenthood. They often lack confidence in their driving skills. Above all, they are apt to be self-centered and self-absorbed, with little interest in their neighbors or communities."

CONSIDER...

Every time another segment of our society gets attacked -- as seen above -- converting members of that newly-vilified group into liberty advocates becomes that much easier. If you know an anti-gunner who owns an SUV, this might be a good article to forward his or her way.

"An interesting application of the [Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations] Act could be to declare Bush, Ashcroft, Daschle, Gephardt, Lott, Armey, Rehquist et al a RICO for their joint ventures in violation of the Constitution. ... The ill-gotten gains of the federal government then would be subject to forfeiture and given back to the taxpayers. Then, they'd all have to provide for their own legal defenses. That is unless, we could seize that part of their estates that came from government employment. Now that could be a hoot."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The supposed quietude of a good mans allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them... — Thomas Paine, I Writings of Thomas Paine at 56 (1894).
