"It could have been a cat, but it was like a screaming, a whirrr. [It] sounded almost like a bigger cat was being cornered or something and was screaming to try to get out of it. I don't know what it was, but I know it was enough for me to grab my gun and sit there for a while and not go back to sleep for a while."

Does not matter if the threat was a wild animal attacking pets, some crackhead attacking your family or a neighbor, even invasion by aliens of any definition. What matters is that a man used his Second Amendment rights to prepare for any of the above events. If a threat were of the invasion (human) type, what chance would he have without the proper homeland defense rifle? But the California government, U.N. for that matter, does not want you to have one of those.

"Eustace Mullins is the last living protege of Ezra Pound, the author of the only book burned in Germany since Hitler (a burning under the direction of Americans), and a former researcher for Joseph McCarthy. He's ... one of the most hated men in America in some circles. He belongs to no group, espouses no movement or party and doesn't give a damn what you think of him. ... Here's a piece of my conversation with him on his front porch on July 8th, 2003."

"Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch fired a shot heard around the District of Columbia this week. Three days ago, he introduced legislation to repeal the draconian gun-control laws that prevent Washington residents from owning handguns. Since 1976, the city has maintained the strictest, or close to the strictest, gun-control laws in the nation. Despite the gun ban, Washington has frequently had the highest homicide rate in the country. According to FBI statistics, it was the murder capital again last year, with its rate of 48.5 killings per 100,000 residents far ahead of other urban centers. Reflecting on this situation, Mr. Hatch said that the District's policy is 'as ineffective and deplorable as it is unconstitutional.' We could not agree more."
 

Can Dean Take The Heat?

"The 1994 ban on semi-automatic weapons, which, as the NRA points out, became redefined by Congress as assault weapons, is one law that Dean would like to see kept on the books. It expires September 13, 2004. Right there, that should tip off conservatives where Dean's true sympathies lie. As The Washington Post editorialized in 1994: 'Assault weapons play a part in only a small percentage of crime. The provision is mainly symbolic; its virtue will be if it turns out to be, as hoped, a stepping stone to broader gun control.' "

"Dean deserves to be pressed on whether he truly wants to just maintain the 1994 assault weapons ban or whether he would back one of two bills that purport to extend the ban but do much more."

Dean deserves to be pressed about the definition of "shall not be infringed."

Former Houston Police Capt. Mark Aguirre of the K-Mart parking lot raid may run for city council. When asked what his campaign slogan would be, he answered:

"Accountability. We need that desperately. I gained a lot of public attention, dealt a lot of lemons and I'm going to make some lemonade. It's going to be sweet."

It could create a problem, since several people who said they were falsely arrested in the K-Mart raid are suing the city. "I don't think they have a case," Aguirre said.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A circuit judge ruled Friday that the Christian County sheriff must release jail security tapes to state troopers who are investigating an inmate's allegations of abuse. Judge James Eiffert ruled, however, that the attorney representing the inmate may not have the tapes.

Holly Lockard says deputies strapped her to a chair and shocked her with a Taser gun last month in the Christian County Jail. Lockard has since been sentenced on drug-related charges and left the county jail.

A Taney County jail inmate also complained about abuse at the jail. Taney County had moved some of its inmates to Christian County so they’d be more secure, after some inmates tried to break out of the jail in Forsyth. Taney County Sheriff Jim Russell moved his prisoners out of the Christian County Jail after the allegations.

"Since 9/11, domestic spying projects have become as American as apple pie, the 4th of July and baseball. And like baseball in the age of free agency -- when eligible players can switch teams when their contracts expire -- it's difficult to follow the multitude of spy ops without a scorecard. With 'The Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003,' otherwise known as the Patriot Act II, now under consideration by Congress, it's an opportune time to review some of the projects offered up by the Bush Administration since 9/11. Not every cranky proposal has passed muster: Some have already been kyboshed; some are operational; and some are still in development."

Last letter on page

"Good race relations are the product of a myriad of tiny increments at the individual, neighbourhood and community level. The grueling and emotionally draining work of teachers, social workers, police officers, youth workers and council employees of all stripes is what's needed 365 days a year to help mitigate the antipathies which exist among our diverse - and diverging - ethnic groups."

"Which is why it was difficult not to see Operation Nightlight, the Met's move on Tuesday night against gun crime in Brent, as just a tad over the top. Granted there have been three slayings in the area in the past three months, and almost 30 attempted murders, as rival Yardie-style gangs fight their turf wars; granted, too, that the local community has gone so far as to offer information to the police."

Around 200 demonstrators gathered outside the courthouse while Ashcroft spoke inside.

A big issue for the protestors was the Patriot Act. They say the act, with gives the federal government a broadened ability to gather information on citizens and non-citizens alike, violates their civil rights.

Protestors were fairly peaceful with no one being arrested. The demonstration closed one lane of road on 3rd Avenue, between Salmon and Main, for a time but traffic kept flowing.

"New York City public school officials forced two young women to be tested for pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases because they attended a 'hooky party,' claimed the New York Civil Liberties Union in a federal lawsuit filed last week. The young women, students at Intermediate School 164, skipped school to attend the party along with ten other students, and were called to the principal's office upon their return to school the next day, reported the Associated Press. School officials had heard that some students at the party were having sex, and the young women were not permitted to return to classes until they produced doctors' notes reporting the results of pregnancy and STD tests, according to the New York Times. The two plaintiffs, who have both since graduated from IS 164, ask in their complaint for unspecified monetary damages, an apology from the Department of Education, removal of any mention of the incident from the students' permanent records, and better training for school officials on issues of student privacy."

"If too many burgers and fries have left your waistline super-sized, don't expect a sweet pay-off in court, senators said Thursday. A bill would prevent people from suing restaurants and food" manufacturers for making them fat.

"The measure would block lawsuits related to obesity or weight gain, but not suits charging other kinds of injury or fraud. It is similar to one already introduced in the House."

" 'I think it's important not to blame poor eating habits on someone else,' said Sen. Mitch McConnell (news, bio, voting record), R-Ky., and the sponsor of the bill."
