"It's never been done before. The U.S. Constitution has NEVER been read on the floor of the Congress."

"And to no one's surprise, the voting records of most Congressmen demonstrate they've never read the document for themselves!"

"So as you know, GOA initiated a campaign early last month to require the incoming Congress to read the Constitution. And our effort paid off yesterday when the House of Representatives read the Constitution on the floor of that chamber. This was quite a historic event." ...

CAUTION: Strong language

"A long-time friend of mine who I had not heard from in a long while got a hold of me this morning out of the blue. Let's call him 'Deep Throat.' He lives across the river from the District of Criminals and has, shall we say, considerable ground-level experience in explaining American foreign policy to the violent and wayward across the planet."

"He informs me that his sources tell him that the White House is now fully briefed on the 'Walking Gun-gate' scandal and is now calling the shots. 'They are in desperate need of a cover-up, but aren't competent enough to arrange one,' he said with a laugh. 'They don't know whether to shit or go blind.'" ...

CAUTION: Strong language

"Earlier today, respected author and TTAG commentator Dan Baum took me to task for suggesting that average folk ought to make their house more of a bunker and less of a target. 'Alarms, vault doors, exterior lighting….Where do you live? Beirut? Nothing in here about what to do if a meteorite hits your house, which is about as statistically likely as a home invasion.' The standard answer to this objection: 'If you believe that, why do you wear a seat belt?' The rabbi’s response: 'Sheep.' My slightly more loquacious reply: 'Shit happens.' For example, consider the internal lock failure on my Performance Center Smith & Wesson 686 . . ." ...

"... Why not take your message of gun safety, rights and responsibilities to communities hard hit by gunfire, to working-class neighborhoods in Detroit, where the of Bill of Rights gets steamrolled on the regular? ..."

"I have an obvious theory about this, of course. ... I frankly suspect that it's because too many (but certainly not all) of these groups are populated with far-right bigots irrationally fearful of 'urban' crime ..." ...

Submitter's Note: For me it actually has more to do with a perfecty rational fear of 'urban' crimefighters like this guy.

Senate confirmation hearings would give Senators the opportunity to ask all kinds of uncomfortable questions, which would have to be answered under oath (not that 'under oath' is much of a guarantee of integrity, when dealing with the BATFE)."

"Fourteen years after being forced to plead guilty to the "crime" of owning a gun in Washington, the blot against the record of Dave Magnus may be cleared. On Thursday, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals recognized that one should not bear a stigma for the past possession of a firearm in the nation's capital for the purpose of self-defense. 'A conviction for conduct that is not criminal, but is instead constitutionally-protected, is the ultimate miscarriage of justice,' Judge Stephen H. Glickman wrote in the 12-page decision." ...

"Back in December 1996, he ran afoul of the law when police discovered two guns in his Petworth home. But in 2008, things started to look different: the Supreme Court ruling on District of Columbia v. Heller found fault with the city's stringent ban on firearms, pointing out that the Second Amendment protected the "right of persons to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes." So now, Magnus' arrest might not count." ...

"The Municipality of Anchorage last month agreed to pay $35,000 to a woman who was dragged out of her apartment by a police officer and arrested for drunk driving in April 2005. The woman suffered a minor injury ... and was shat upon by a dachshund she was holding during a scuffle with the officer in the entryway to her home. She was handcuffed inside the apartment and once outside the officer bound her legs with a hobbling device. Prior to the settlement a federal judge threw three of the woman’s claims out at the request of the city, but it was a split ruling. The judge kept alive the woman's right to sue on claims the officer used excessive force when he hobbled his suspect after already putting her in handcuffs." ...

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams
