... "However, what if it is true? What if President Bush actually said the things Thompson said he said? In that case, every American must bear responsibility!" ...

"If G.W. Bush said the things he is quoted as saying, it means that our President is not only the worst kind of liar but also a very clear and present threat to freedom!"

"Remember that President Bush twice put his hand on a Holy Bible and took an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. Such an oath carries with it the most sacred of intentions and the most serious of consequences." ...

... "But to get to the point, the Constitution is not the parchment itself, but the ideas written upon it; ideas which form the foundations of our nation, ideas which would carry equal weight if written on stone, glass, metal, or even paper. These ideas are the soul of the nation. ..." ...

"The Constitution isn't just a piece of paper or parchment. It's a contract; the original contract with America. It's the contract you yourself swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend against all enemies both foreign and domestic. ..." ...

"Go over to Arlington National Cemetery. It's not that far from where you live. Look at those tombstones. By your statement, you have written across and every one the words, 'Died for a goddamned piece of paper.'"
 

PA: Gun advocates fueled by irrational emotion (letter)

"Thanks to Lawrence Braico of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs ("Gun law's flaws," Dec. 5) for finally clarifying why pro-gunners are so vehement in opposition to limits on packing heat at will."

"Gun-lobby rhetoric is awash in false patriotism and incorrect reading of constitutional principle ... But in his rambling and parental letter taking Gov. Rendell to task for signing legislation enabling law enforcement to remove guns from domestic abusers, Braico defined what really motivates pro-gunners to fight against every limit on gun possession or use: emotion."

"He wrote that emotion was key ... So now we know. It's less about so-called rights, and more about the emotional attraction pro-gunners feel toward guns." ...

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) applauded the Wisconsin Assembly this morning for its progressive 64 to 32 vote, approving state concealed carry legislation."

"The vote, which came just after 3 a.m. following a marathon all-night session, sets the stage for yet another showdown with anti-gun Gov. Jim Doyle, who has already promised to veto this legislation. Supporters of the measure are concerned that Doyle, in an effort to prevent his veto from being overridden, may offer political favors to key Democrats to flip-flop on this important bill."

"What good are gun laws if an ex-felon can buy an antique pistol and shoot two Douglas County deputies a few hours later?"

"That's apparently what happened in Stateline a week ago. It demonstrates how the nation's gun laws essentially are ineffective at keeping weapons out of the hands of people who are known to be dangerous to themselves and others."

"We support the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms - as a guarantee of the Bill of Rights, as a tradition of independence and self-reliance in Nevada, and because there are legitimate reasons for owning a gun."

"And even the most strident anti-gun control advocates would agree that convicted felons have given up their right to buy or possess guns. That much is beyond debate." ...

"'My client was severely injured in a needless removal from her home,' stated attorney Ashton O'Dwyer. 'Patricia Konie had food, plenty of water, and a roof over her head. The police who illegally entered her home and imposed their will on a frail, middle-aged female should have been out apprehending armed, male looters instead.'" ...

Waldren was hired in September and faced 15 more months of probationary status, Evinger said.

"An old saw says trials don't so much reflect reality as create their own. Never was that maxim clearer than when a jury filed back at 10:40 a.m. Tuesday to announce they had found state drug agent Michael Walker not guilty in the shooting of Rudy Cardenas."

"It was the wrong call, a mistake, a verdict that ignored common sense. With plenty of cover, Walker shot the wrong man in the back. His unarmed victim was running away. As prosecutor Lane Liroff said, 'If you shoot someone in the back ... It's not self-defense.'"

"What Walker did to Cardenas on a February day in 2004 wasn't just the product of a split-second decision gone horribly wrong. It was the crowning folly of a Keystone Kops chase by state drug agents who knew better." ...

"I'm a pacifist, but, recently, I've been thinking about getting a concealed weapons permit. I want to be able to call myself 'The Packing Pacifist.' It would go over well with my conservative relatives. Also, it could be fun to show people my permit and my psychiatric records at the same time."

"I live in a shall-issue state, which means that they can't really say no - as long as I take a basic class. With this in mind, I went to a website on concealed weapons, and clicked on a link to an approved school. A few clicks, and a hundred dollars, later I was enrolled in a class set for the very next day. I was going to be taking a course called NRA basic pistol." ...

"A debate has begun over which Inland Empire residents should be allowed permits to carry concealed weapons. It's about time we talked about it -- most other states have worked through the debate, leaving California in a minority of states that deny permits to good people."

"Thirty-eight states now issue permits to law-abiding citizens to carry personal firearms for self-protection. But California's law leaves permit-granting authority to local chief law enforcement officers, making for a complex patchwork of rules that are often unfairly applied. Some sheriffs grant permits to any good citizens who apply. But in Los Angeles or San Francisco, you can forget it unless you are a celebrity or other well-connected worthy." ...

"White-tailed deer and feral hogs are the two primary big-game animals in Texas. The former often is a passion and the latter a pestilence. But they have one thing in common: Almost all deer and pigs taken by Lone Star hunters each year are shot within 200 yards. And that is a generous yardstick. Many are bagged at about 100 yards."

"This is because the average hunter sits in a stand overlooking a relatively close source of food. Buck fever aside, the average shot is easy with the typical scoped bolt-action rifle."

"For this reason, many Texas hunters are over-equipped. An expensive rifle, either factory issue or custom-built, is a joy to possess, but the superior accuracy normally is not critical to success." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

I'm a passionate sport shooter. I compete in a number of shooting disciplines with both pistols and rifles. It's a wonderful pastime, spent with good friends.

I was going to be getting a longed-for new pistol for Christmas, but it seems that plan is off now. No sense spending good money on something that will simply be confiscated by the state, at what it euphemistically calls "fair market value."

The Grinch has also stolen Christmas from small business owners who run hunting and firearms stores, many on very slim profit margins indeed. There'll be lots of Christmas gifts that won't be bought now. All because of a draconian, ineffectual, cynical Liberal vote-grab.

The Grinch certainly does wear red — Liberal red.
