"Modern schools are not suited to boys' personalities and learning styles. This can be seen from the time boys enter school. ... The line of 10 kids who had to gather every day after school in my son's first grade class for their behavior reports--all boys. The names of kids on the side of the chalkboard who misbehaved and would lose recess--all boys. The kids as young as five or six who must be drugged so they will sit still and 'behave' -- almost all boys."

-------
ORIGINAL TITLE: "Ban on 'Sniper' Rifles Proposed"
-------
"Expanding its citywide ban on assault weapons, the Los Angeles City Council took a step Tuesday to outlaw the sale and civilian possession of the .50-caliber rifles used by SWAT units and the military."

"Although council members could not cite any crimes committed in L.A. involving the so-called "sniper" rifles, they said their unanimous action Tuesday--ordering legal language to outlaw the weapons--would prevent attacks on people and the city's infrastructure."

"A state Assembly committee considered a similar statewide ban last spring but did not approve it."

"At Tuesday's council meeting, two gun-rights advocates and the developer of a .50-caliber model argued that banning the long-distance rifles restricts the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding target shooters. A dozen speakers and the Los Angeles Police Department supported the gun ban."

New York City bans handguns, but the state can't manage to keep firearms out of prisons?
-------
"New York State corrections officers are asking the state for more manpower after illegal weapons were found in three prisons last week, including parts of a crude firearm found at the Fishkill Correctional Facility in Beacon."

"On Friday, officers at Fishkill caught an inmate trying to fashion a 'zip gun' out of brass tubing, a sharpened nail to be used as a firing pin, and a .380-caliber bullet. Corrections officers said the inmate had prior experience in the military and managed to sneak the components into the prison by stashing them inside a personal radio. Charges against the inmate are pending."

"Earlier in the week, corrections officers had found a small cache of makeshift shanks and other weapons at a prison in western New York. Two days later, officers found about 200 rods, used in chain-link fences, in an inmate's housing unit at another facility in western New York."

"Being a National Review employee has its perks — intelligent daily discourse, relaxed work environment, good people, WFB parties, etc. But I never imagined NR would put a firearm in my hand. Through connections here, I recently had the opportunity to participate in a free rifle lesson in New York City sponsored by Women on Target."

"Women on Target is a branch of the National Rifle Association that seeks to educate and train women on the use of guns, specifically for recreational purposes. They arrange events such as target shooting and women-only hunting trips. Its main goal is to get more women involved in the shooting sports, but its motto 'Refuse to Be a Victim' indicates that self-defense is another inevitable goal."
