"Now I know some of you will cry First Amendment, but the last I checked, any violence directed at any sitting president of the United States is against the law, whether written, spoken, or any other manner to give rise to suspicion. Let's put the glove on the other hand for a minute. If this was a picture showing Clinton taking a bullet to the head, media and their cohorts would be banging down doors and people would be going to jail!"

FULL TEXT BELOW:

I can sympathize with the citizens of Washington, D.C., who express their concern regarding Sen. Orrin Hatch and his interference with their local gun laws (Forum, July 22) as he seems to zealously advocate sharing his Wild West mentality supporting rampant gun ownership nationwide.

And I can certainly commiserate with their situation when they express the disparity and unfairness in having taxation without representation.

Oh, it's OK to own them for personal protection, it's just not OK to carry them for personal protection outside the home. Maybe then this editor should be prevented from writing her column for outside distribution. After all, she could misuse that right.

"Tyranny is easily identified. It takes advantage and usurps the natural goodness in each person, saddling them with mountains of legalities mandating compliance and penalties for non-compliance. A rule of law that applies only to the citizenry and from which government has exempted itself is tyranny. Taxation without representation is not necessarily tyranny, but a rule of law enforced only against the citizens of a nation and not its rulers is unmistakably tyranny."

I know that California has no restrictions on purchase or sale of Black Powder firearms other than to convicted felons, etc, whether over the counter, online, in state and interstate and even at gun shows, so I called the company's toll-free number to inquire about the restriction. I was told that even though California may allow Black Powder firearms, the company's management has decided to restrict shipments to California as well as to a number of other areas according to the company's own standards in order to avoid 'legal problems,' even if their restriction is more prohibitive than the area in question imposes." ...

"Since 1994, when Congress passed the Gun-Free Schools Act that mandates a one-year expulsion for any student caught with a firearm on campus, school districts nationwide have expanded the no-nonsense punishments to include other weapons, bomb threats and drug infractions."

"But critics say the policies now go too far, that no situation is black-and-white and that the policy, meant to weed out discipline problems, sometimes punishes a school's best and brightest."
