"Yesterday we received word that KT Ordnance, manufacturer of incomplete (80%-finished) frames, was raided for the alleged "illegal manufacture of firearms." KT Ordnance has been a great asset to those who wish to purchase unfinished receivers with which to anonymously manufacture their own firearms -- a perfectly legal process, according to the BATFE website."

"You can see from photos of the AR-15 kit that the product cannot possibly be a functioning 'firearm' -- it's simply a chunk of metal! So how can this happen?"
 

What Would the Founders Do Today? Suppose they could go on "Meet The Press"...

"Was the Second Amendment, then, a bulwark of liberty or a pious irrelevance? The framers of the Constitution doubted that any Bill of Rights was necessary, which was why they left it out. Under the Constitution power would derive from the people; how could the people oppress themselves? But Madison became midwife to the Bill of Rights, under pressure from his enemy Patrick Henry and prodding from his friend Jefferson. Jefferson, the amateur architect, saw a bill of rights as a useful structural prop. 'A brace the more will often keep up [a] building which would have fallen' without it, Jefferson wrote Madison. Some Founders believed passionately in the Second Amendment and the other nine. The rest put up with them."

"...here’s a (very brief) recap of the Internet issue that has put Moveon.org, Gun Owners of America and the Indigo Girls on the same team. To sum it up, cable and phone companies – who control broadband, high-speed Internet lines – want to charge Web sites for delivering faster broadband service, something that’s particularly valuable to video-heavy sites like YouTube, for example. Those sites that don’t pay a premium would not receive faster service. The theory behind net neutrality is that all Web sites should be charged equally for use of high speed Internet lines from cable and phone companies."

"A lot of people in the New Port Richey neighborhood witnessed the incident, so it was pretty bold of the two men to commit the crime."

"The woman now holds on tightly to a handgun, saying she will be ready if the bad guys come back."

"Talk about your smear campaigns."

"If Colorado's 4th Congressional District race gets around to some old-fashioned mudslinging, it'll be a considerable upgrade."

"A traffic dispute was just a traffic dispute. A grudge was just a grudge. And a police officer wore a bulletproof vest only when something extraordinary was going down."

"But those days are gone forever, thanks to the easy availability and cultural approbation of handguns."
 

IN: Lighten up, parents; it's just a squirt gun (Letter)

"The three Northside parents quoted sounded ridiculous at best. A squirt gun, or water pistol, is not a violent toy when properly used; nor will using a squirt gun lead to using real guns. Consider that a garden hose handle produces a more pressurized stream of water than most toy water guns.
One father said, 'I think toy guns send the wrong message, because what's next?' What's next? We're talking about squirt guns, not a sawed-off shotgun."

"A mother said, 'I just don't like what squirt guns represent.'"

"Hours of child-like fun and years of happy memories playing with others? To link a fluorescent plastic squirt gun with actual gun-control concerns is laughable."

"Canada's former top accountant says the senior bureaucrat overseeing the controversial gun registry didn't want to ask Parliament for more money to cover cost overruns for fear it would affect the upcoming 2004 federal election."
