From the point of view of the victims, the only political continuum that makes sense is that of collectivist tyranny on one end and the individual religious and political liberty, free markets, right to property, right to arms and rule of law represented by the constitutional republic. Take your left-right line, if you like, and pull each end down and make it a circle, ends touching. Now at the bottom of the circle you have Stalinism, Maoism, Hitlerism and Mussolini's fascism cheek by jowl. That is where they belong, together. By their fruits ye shall know them, and that is how we should classify them.

Is Sotomayor Anti-Gun?

"Last summer, the Supreme Court, for the first time ever, said the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own a gun for self-defense. It was a historic decision that put real limits on gun control. But gun-rights advocates complain that someone didn't get the memo—someone named Sonia Sotomayor."

"Exhibit A is her decision in January to uphold the conviction of a New York man ... in a unanimous decision joined by Sotomayor, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals found 'it is settled law ... that the Second Amendment does not apply to the states ..."

"... Sotomayor's decision was a model of judicial restraint that was entirely appropriate given the Supreme Court's record." ...

... "... the rifle is designated SR556, for Sturm, Ruger 5.56 millimeter. It takes standard AR15/M16 magazines, and comes with three of them, produced by Magpul, one of the best makers. I'’s the most 'vendor-outsourced' firearm this company has ever assembled ... but it's an AR15 clone, after all, and that's the logical way to make one ... The trick is to use the best parts." ...

"But, enough of that: how does it SHOOT?"

"The subtle feel of the mechanism as it cycles is different from your usual Stoner-type AR15, because the Ruger entry works off ... a proprietary two-piece piston. One of my fellow shooters said, 'It feels like a whoosh, not a sproing.' That about describes it, even if it ain't engineer terminology." ...

The bear broke in through the back door of a home on Columbia court around 8 p.m. Friday night.

The man shot the bear 4 times, and it died. Division of Wildlife investigated, and say the homeowner was justified in the shooting.

"The measure, formally known as the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, was passed in desperation at the height of the crack-fueled drive-by killings of the 1990s. It was famously ineffective, and expired in 2004. (It turns out the best way to get murderers off the street is to convict them of murder and lock them up.)" ...
