"JPFO is down to filming the last three minutes of the forthcoming documentary, Innocents Betrayed. Three minutes to go."

"On a global scale, the right to firearms ownership might have about three minutes left, too, if the global gun grabbers get their way."

"The Innocents Betrayed documentary can reach out to people worldwide—it has an international message—to wake up people everywhere to understand what civilian disarmament really means."

"An overly intrusive application of tracing devices online was one of several Internet-related red flags raised by civil rights advocates following Ashcroft's testimony and the release last month of a Justice Department document answering lawmakers' questions about the Patriot Act."

"Another Net-related concern in the ACLU memo is the potential use of Web-surfing records in data-mining projects, allowing investigators to fish for illicit activity unrelated to the original inquiry."

"The ACLU also criticized the paucity of information provided by the Justice Department regarding what Internet content it considers off-limits in searches. It also questioned the application of some surveillance technologies in garden-variety criminal cases."

"Little Brother will be watching you, unless you carry a Mylar bag."

"Little Brother, in this case the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, sent out a letter last week to 200,000 Bay Area residents advising that in September, it will use FasTrak transponders to monitor traffic."

"The MTC has taken extraordinary steps to avoid acting more like George Orwell's classically malevolent '1984' dictator, Big Brother, who watched the every movement of his fictional subjects."

"Given what I had seen, I was not surprised by news reports of what happened later, when police conducted a still more brutal arrest of a protester burning a U.S. flag. Police shot him at point-blank range with rubber bullets, tipping the crowd into a direct confrontation that led to the use of pepper spray, concussion grenades and rubber bullets." ...

"The Minneapolis police officer who was shot in February while doing plainclothes surveillance blames not only a fellow officer, but also two department supervisors, according to a federal suit filed Monday." ...

"The suit accuses supervisors of issuing Storlie the submachine gun, 'knowing his record for use and misuse of force, including deadly force on others.' The suit said it is believed that the supervisors 'knew of Storlie's propensity to dramatize, imagine, and thereby mentally incorporate personal danger into calls where such a danger may not be present in reality.'

"In an attempt to further their own agenda, while riding on the coattails of President Bush's popularity, congressional Democrats have introduced two bills that would eliminate a number of our remaining firearms freedoms, under the guise of being 'for the children.' "

"The bills are inappropriately named the Leave No Child Behind Act of 2003. The problem with this name is that President Bush signed into law an education bill known as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001." ...

"...the Leave No Child Behind Act of 2003 would ban private party transfers at gun shows, would ban the import of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, would require trigger locks to be sold with every firearm, and more. This is hardly a bill 'for the children' as much as it is a sneaky way to pass gun control legislation that would otherwise be unpassable."

"A college student jailed on marijuana charges was raped by his cell mate who was already being held on sexual battery charges, authorities said."

"The 19-year-old student was serving four weekends in jail on charges of delivering marijuana, said Alachua County Sheriff's Sgt. Jim Troiano."

"His cell mate held a ball point pen to the teenager's neck Friday night, his first weekend of the sentence, and then forced himself on him, Troiano said." ...

"The two were put in a cell together because they were both charged with felonies, Troiano said. There also was little room in the jail last weekend, he added. Jackson has since been moved to his own cell."

"The former deportation officers of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service were found guilty of 'deliberate indifference to the serious medical needs' of Serafin Olvera-Carrera, 47, who suffered a broken neck and wasn't taken to a hospital for seven hours, according to federal prosecutors."

"And what 'broader preventive and reduction measures' did the Firearms Protocol come up with? It called for international control of 'manufacture, possession, and transfer' of commercial shipments of small arms, 'traders and forwarders to register and obtain licenses,' and 'marking and tracking mechanisms' for all weapons. Gee, sounds familiar. Just get legitimate dealers, manufacturers, and even owners to 'register,' and illegal weapons will magically disappear from the hands of criminals. (I'm sure those Palestinian machine shops turning out weapons will comply.) If you wade through the pompous verbiage, you sense the taint of an international Handgun Control, Inc. The words 'control,' and 'register' are, as Yogi Berra would say, déjà vu all over again."

"I'm not sure when I realized I'd been hoodwinked. Maybe it was the passage of one of those expensive Bud Schuster highway bills, or the failure to get rid of the National Endowment for the Arts. It could have been the failure to cut corporate welfare, or the constant caving by the Republican leadership."

"It might have been seeing prominent Republicans fighting for more gun control, tobacco legislation and 'campaign finance de-form.' The neo-cons had taken over the party and I was through. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, the party left me."

"Last week, we reported about Trooper DeLong, a woman who has failed to qualify with her firearm on two separate occasions, been suspended for abusing the law enforcement database for personal use, and been fired (then reinstated) from a post at the Statehouse for sleeping while on duty."

"We also told you about Trooper Burd, a three-time 'trooper of the year' who has been fired from his job with the State Highway Patrol for conduct unbecoming an officer, after being charged with attacking several people in the parking lot of a Kenton bar, about 60 miles northwest of Columbus."

"The latest example of an out-of-control Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper comes from Lucas County, where Trooper Rosemary Sullivan was fired for untruthfulness and conduct unbecoming an officer. Sullivan has been convicted, after firing her patrol-issued weapon into the air several times after quarreling with a neighbor's teenage son."

"In their efforts to prevent a repeat of the Sept. 11 tragedy, the U.S. government and the airline industry are relying on software so outdated that it can’t distinguish between the last name of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden and punk rocker Johnny Rotten Lydon."

"As the war on terrorism spurs U.S. intelligence agencies to constantly expand aviation watch lists, many airline-reservation systems rely on name-searching software based on a 120-year-old indexing system that mistakes the similar spelling or sound of innocent passengers’ surnames for those of terrorists."

"The result: Thousands of travelers have been flagged at airports for additional searches and police questioning — while critics say real terrorists could slip through undetected."

Japan: Japan’s chilling Internet suicide pacts

"The discovery Sunday of the bodies of four young Japanese men in a car at a vista point near Mount Fuji appears to be more evidence of a grim new trend in the prosperous country — group suicides of strangers who meet over the Internet. The suicide pacts, which have resulted in at least 18 deaths since February, are shocking to experts, even in a nation plagued by an astronomical suicide rate."

-------
Consider the fact that gun control advocates consistently fixate on firearm suicide as a national tragedy. Then consider the fact that Japan has practically no private firearm ownership, but an astronomical suicide rate. What does this do to the anti-gunners' feeble arguments?

"The study by the Violence Prevention Research Group at the University of California at Los Angeles appears in the June issue of the journal Annals of Internal Medicine."

The mere name of the group makes its objectivity suspect. But as was pointed out numerous times, could these numbers point to the need for a firearm for self-defense in neighborhoods where the thugs are prevalent, armed and dangerous?

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The City Council in Laconia is urging Gov. Craig Benson to veto a bill that would prohibit communities from setting their own rules about whether to allow guns inside municipal buildings.

The council said the proposal removes its authority to protect city employees.

Supporters said the bill makes gun possession laws uniform throughout the state, not different from community to community.

Opponents, including the New Hampshire Municipal Association, said the proposal puts the lives of municipal employees at risk, by not letting them regulate guns in their buildings.

-------
They are still having problems comprehending the simple principle that law-abiding gun owners are not the problem and are not a threat.

Liberals Are Evil?

"Take a good, long; look at the leftist belief in gun control. Liberals swear with every breath that gun control is a compassionate ideal to espouse. They claim controlling and curtailing the legal ownership of guns by Americans makes us safer. It reduces crime, and makes society better according to their doctrine."

"Yet in reality gun control does nothing to reduce crimes or violence. In fact in States, which allow gun owners to carry their guns, violent crimes have dropped. Fewer rapes, robberies, assaults, murders, etc. And in England, where guns are strictly controlled and in most cases illegal to own, violent crime is increasing rather than decreasing."

"Now Liberals are well aware of these statistics, yet they continue to beat the drums for more gun control. Why? There is no doubt which course of action reduces crime and makes us safer is there? Yet Liberals continue to support and push the course which helps criminals instead of innocent citizens. Is this not evil? Yes my friends it is."

"Criticizing the Minnesota Legislature and welcoming a court fight, the Hennepin County Board voted to ban legally-permitted handguns from its 130 buildings."

"The action was in response to the new state law that would make it easier for Minnesotans to get permits to carry handguns in public. Since it was enacted, 758 people have applied for permits in Hennepin County -- the state's most populous county -- compared to a total of 509 permits issued for all of 2002."

"But gun popularity among women is based on two misconceptions. First, gun advocates often call guns the great equalizer between men and women. In reality, according to a new study by the University of California at Davis, women who own handguns are more than twice as likely to be murdered with a firearm by their partners than those who do not. While this may be partly explained by the fact that women who fear an attack are more apt to buy a gun, the study shows guns often fail to help women protect themselves."

"The eternal conflict that comes out of the political struggle is natural. The reliance upon laws to arbitrate that friction versus legislating new law from the bench, was the original intent. The failure to abide by and adhere to that role has directly led to our present social discord and civic hostility. The Supreme Court was never chartered to supersede or replace Congress, and the Presidency was never meant to surpass both. But what has evolved is an interlocking union that insulates the functions of the federal government, whenever any branch decides that the supreme law of the land interferes with immediate political objectives."

"Many young men and women are surprised to learn that firearms kill more people between the ages of 15 and 24 than all natural causes combined."

-------
That wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that this is the prime age for gang activity, would it?

Additionally, according to the CDC, the above claim is a disingenuous manipulation. The primary cause of death in young people in that age group is listed as "unintentional injuries." Overwhelmingly, the majority of those injuries are motor-vehicle-related. Next come poisoning, drowning, other land transport and falls. Firearms are near the bottom causing 1.4 percent of unintentional injuries.
