WHEN MOMS ATTACK - Another Adventure in Absurdity

"It is called 'maternal filicide' which is a fancy way of saying child murderer and it happens over 600 times each year. That number seemed ridiculously high to me so I doubled checked with the Bureau of Justice Statistics, National Center for Health Statistics and the FBI Crime statistics. They verified that mothers kill their own kids over 600 times per year!"

"That puts a pretty frightening face on the group calling itself the 'Million Mom March'. I wonder how many of those mothers are ticking time bombs? What sets them off and how can we protect their children? I know of at least one of those anti-gun moms who committed murder. She even spoke out against gun violence at the first Million Mom March in Washington, D.C. Then, a few months later, she shot and killed a boy. Now, she didn't kill her own child, but she did murder the boy she thought had shot her son. It turned out she got the wrong guy and shot an innocent person. What that group needed to be pushing was self control not gun control. Perhaps, after reading the rest of this article, they will see the dangers within their own group and switch their efforts to mother control."

"The agents were looking for a bank robbery suspect. Schultz wasn't the guy."

"There's no reason to be at a firing range at all ...And if you're there to keep your skills up, that says it -- there is no reason to keep your skills up."

"The international anti-tobacco treaty that the U.S. government has suddenly embraced won't reduce smoking in other nations by one iota, Libertarians predict, but it will infringe on the right of adults everywhere to smoke."

" 'This treaty proves that politicians and bureaucrats are hopelessly addicted to running other people's lives, no matter which nation they're from,' said Geoffrey Neale, Libertarian Party national chairman. 'While this document will further empower the international nanny state, in all likelihood it won't deter people from smoking.' "

"I have come to fear almost everything having to do with law. Though there are many fine people in the legal profession, and though law is necessary to protect society from descending into chaos, I now fear the legal profession more than I do Islamic terror. I am far from alone. I believe that more Americans rightly fear being ruined by the American legal system more than being killed by a terrorist."

"Minnesota's new law made it much easier for residents to get a permit to carry a concealed handgun. Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed the law, which the Republican Party had been trying to pass for years." ...

"Liberals in the state are aghast at that prospect. They've a right to be worried but are probably wrong about this issue. The reason is that North Dakota (and some other states) has had a similar system for years. Yet the state enjoys one of the rock-bottom lowest crime rates in the nation."
