Waco and the Bipartisan Police State

"Every year around this time, I find it worthwhile to reflect on the siege at Mt. Carmel, just outside of Waco, Texas, which began on February 28, 1993, when an ATF publicity stunt went awry, and ended 51 days later on April 19 with about 80 civilians killed."

"Waco is still important, because it illustrates the violent nature of the state, the fact that political power flows from the barrel of a gun, and the scary truth that the U.S. government is ultimately no different from all others in this respect. Many people, including many libertarians, would just as soon forget the debacle. But we must remember." ...

"Yet Waco is neither a leftwing nor rightwing issue. It is instead an issue that transcends such political categories and cuts to the most profound of questions as to what kind of country this is, what kind it should be, and the very meanings of liberty and tyranny." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Investigators are now calling a weekend shooting near Claxton self-defense. It happened on Church Street just outside the Claxton city limits Saturday morning around 8am. Sheriff's deputies say Danny Jones, Jr., shot and killed Ray Smith, Sr.

They arrested Jones in minutes, but now believe Smith fired his weapon first.

"They'd gotten in an argument earlier and the victim went and got a gun and came back and they fired at each other across the street," said Chief Deputy Randall Tippins.

Jones remains in jail, charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The case is still under investigation.

"Did Harold Fish act in self defense when he shot and killed Grant Kuenzli at a remote trailhead near Pine May 11, 2004? Or did he overreact and commit second-degree murder?"

"Fish's fate is now in the hands of a jury. The jurors begin deliberations today, Tuesday, at 9 a.m. in Coconino County Superior Court in Flagstaff."

"Fish maintains that two dogs in Kuenzli's care rushed at him as he exited the trail. To protect himself, Fish said he pulled a 10 mm handgun and fired a warning shot to keep the dogs away. He also said Kuenzli then rushed at him, threatening death or harm."

"He fatally shot Kuenzli three times in the chest. Kuenzli, according to testimony, was unarmed and Fish was not injured in the incident." ...

The state Senate has passed a bill making personal information about concealed weapons carriers exempt from public disclosure.

Democratic Senator Hansen Clarke of Detroit was absent and didn't vote.

The measure now goes to back to the House to resolve differences with the version passed by the House.

"Regarding the June 6 Point of View article by Lisa Price, executive director of the North Carolinians Against Gun Violence Education Fund:"

"There's no such thing as a 'crime gun.' Guns don't commit crimes; criminals do. Certain acts are already illegal; the use of a gun in commission of such acts is also already illegal."

"Lisa Price's solution is to pass more redundant laws, which criminals ignore. The problem is not gun dealers, already regulated to the teeth by the federal government to the point where a clerical error can result in jail time. The legal purchaser of a gun who buys and then passes the weapon to a criminal, a 'straw-man' purchase, is also committing a crime." ...

"However, the percentage of increase is misleading because several elk hunts in south-central and northeast Oregon are being switched from general-season (open to all comers) to limited-access."

"So while elk hunters will ostensibly have 10 percent more bull and either-sex tags available this fall, the total number of people hunting those areas will actually be lower."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both. — William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)
