In the other case, [they] ignored precedent, rewrote some of Colonial America's sodomy laws, and then used due process and a lot of armwaving to strike down a state law of the sort that has been present for centuries--and then discounted everything more than 50 years old as not particularly relevant to their decision." ...

GAO found that all 18 federal agencies reviewed, which accounted for over 95 percent of federal officers and agents authorized to carry firearms, had policies and procedures for controlling and safeguarding firearms that were consistent with federal internal control standards and related criteria. However, agencies could strengthen their controls in key areas that have been consistently recognized as important for effective inventory management. These areas include:
• recording and tracking firearms inventory data;
• maintaining, controlling, and accounting for firearms inventories;
• ensuring personal and supervisory accountability for firearms; and
• requiring investigations, and discipline when deemed appropriate, for individuals determined not to have followed firearms accountability procedures.
Justice Office of Inspector General reported that the Immigration and Naturalization Service could not account for over 500 of its firearms. Furthermore, in July 2001, the Federal Bureau of Investigation disclosed that 449 of its firearms were lost or stolen. ...

A bill recognizing Ohioans' right to self-defense is on hold (again), due to the actions of Gov. Bob Taft, a few bureaucrats in the Ohio State Highway Patrol, and a few enablers in the Senate.

Instead, it was inserted only at the demand of Gov. Bob Taft.

The power of any philosophy is how well all its principles work holistically. In this regard, questions arise as to the legitimacy of the liberal philosophy.

How about gun control; handguns should be restricted since you’re more likely to hurt yourself than actually protect yourself, right? Then how about making blacks the first people to be “protected” under affirmative action gun control, denying them the right to carry guns?
