"In the months after the 2001 riots, Cincinnati police acknowledged they became less active."

"And they're still not fully back to work, records show - even though serious crime rose 11 percent from 2001 to 2002 and the city's homicide rate hit a 15-year high last year."

Why do you need a gun when you can call 911?

You've heard the point gun grabbers make that because you can call the police for help, there's no need for you to own a gun, and you should just cower in fear until the police arrive. But just because you can dial 911, does that mean you can't defend yourself with a gun? This new flash video compares self defense to other things the government does to debunk that argument.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
