"Understand something -- simply paying your life membership or your $35 annual fee to the NRA and sitting back to watch what they can do for you is worthless. It’s the cheap, lazy way out. Logging onto firearms message boards and complaining about the rotten shape of current affairs is worthless, unless you take action to remedy the sad state of politics you spend so much time complaining about."

"While police are pushing forward, prosecutors are proceeding with caution. The charges against Wheeler are under review to make sure they're viable and will hold up in court."

"Miler said one concern prosecutors have is did police have sufficient reason to enter Wheeler's home in the first place?"

"Further back in the yard in the 800 block of Avery Avenue, a second man was lifting another speaker over the back fence."

"...Resch said he grabbed his .22-caliber rifle, pointed it out the window and ordered the man nearest the house to freeze or get shot."

"The grace period to register rifles and other long firearms ended Monday with about 1.6 million shotguns and rifles - about one of every five such weapons in the country - still outside of the national database."

"But the federal government is not rushing to track down and charge people with unregistered long weapons."

"Despite being past the deadline, Canadians will not face punishment if they voluntarily contact the Canadian Firearms Center to register a weapon in the coming weeks."

"Good Cajun and Creole cooks (I live in New Orleans; I know a few) always say they never follow a recipe exactly as printed. They’ll curl up with a cookbook the way they curl up with an arresting novel, picking and gleaning from different recipes, reading it for the sheer joy."

"If EVER a cookbook was designed for this, here it is. Between recipes for such as Jamaican Jerk Venison, Squirrel Casserole and Maple Bourbon Wild Boar, the Nugents’ book comes peppered with hunting stories and punchy aphorisms. 'Vegetarians are cool! All I eat are vegetarians!' "

European Union Influenced Supreme Court Sodomy Ruling

"In his dissent, Justice Antonin Scalia expressly condemned this apparent reliance on foreign precedent, writing, 'Constitutional elements do not spring into existence ... as the Court seems to believe, because foreign nations decriminalize conduct.' "

-------
SCOTUS used non-US law -- from the United Nations -- to overturn the Texas Sodomy law.

When non-US law governs the US, and SCOTUS defines the Constitution as, "a living document subject to interpretation according to the prevailing public attitudes of the times,' what could they do with Silveira vs. Lockyer?

Let's hope this is not an indication of things to come.

"California's Republicans are trying to get Gov. Gray Davis, a Democrat, to join a club so exclusive that it has only one member: Lynn J. Frazier, governor of North Dakota during World War I."

"Frazier served from 1917 to 1921, when he became the first — and for now, the only — governor recalled from office."

"He was ousted as the economy faltered and his Nonpartisan League party's socialist policies fell into disfavor. The voters were exercising a power they had attained just a year earlier."

"If the annexation plan is approved by the County Commission, it will most likely force the gun club to close, because a city ordinance prohibits the use of firearms within city limits." ...

" 'So the annexation will effectively ruin the rifle range,' said club President Mike Kozakewich."

"This morning, a tragic shooting occurred at a Lockheed Martin plant."

"In the wake of yet another horrible mass shooting, Congress and President Bush need no more reminders of why they should work to reauthorize and strengthen the federal ban on assault weapons. While we don't yet know what weapon was used in this tragedy, we do know that rapid-fire assault weapons are designed for this type of terrible assault." [emphasis added]

"You go on to mention all of the public services that could be in place should the golf courses (which are consistently losing money) be replaced with parks, soccer fields, and so forth. However, you miss the point of King James' lament: why not turn some of that public land now used for golf courses into shooting ranges for those who would practice firearms marksmanship and training to further the defense of this country?"

"After all, the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is in place as a national, home and personal defense measure. Would we not all be better off if it were easier for the majority-percentage of Utahns (firearms owners) to practice with their guns in more convenient locations?"

"Sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad's attorneys sought to have a capital murder charge stemming from the state's new anti-terrorism law dismissed, arguing that under the statute all potential jurors are conceivably victims."

"The new anti-terror law makes a murder defendant eligible for capital punishment if the crime was intended to intimidate the public or influence the government."

"Under that criterion, attorneys Peter D. Greenspun and Jonathan Shapiro claimed Monday in a motion filed with the Prince William County Circuit Court that every resident of the county where the crime took place would also possibly be a victim."

"The Patriot Act gave the government sweeping authority to gather intelligence on American citizens and imprison them for long periods without due process. Ever since the law was passed, libertarians and liberals have been decrying the government's newfound ability to curtail and even deny our cherished civil liberties." ...

"Another Patriot Act is not the answer. When it comes to law enforcement, quantity is no substitute for quality. More surveillance tools will not help if the authorities already misuse the ones they have. Would you expect schoolteachers to become better educators if you gave them additional copies of grossly inaccurate textbooks?"

CO: Shotgun taken into Colorado Springs City Council Meeting

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A man took a shotgun into Colorado Springs city hall this morning. His actions were completely legal. The man carried the shotgun in plain sight, over his shoulder. The gun was unloaded, but the man was carrying ammunition. Security guards were aware of the shotgun when the man entered city hall, but couldn't stop him because he was within his rights. Colorado law allows people to carry guns, as long as they're not concealed. Residents can obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon from county sheriffs. The man with the shotgun sat quietly in the back of city council chambers during a meeting. Most people seemed unaware that the gun was there. Extra police officers arrived to ensure public safety, but there were no incidents.

If no crime was committed and nothing happened other than a citizen exercising his Second Amendment rights, why is this a news story?

"...for a nation that has been called several times the kidnapping capital of Asia, the lure for many people to buy guns for their own protection is valid."

"But the Philippine National Police (PNP) refuses to succumb to the efforts and influence of Pro-Gun officials and immediately thumbed down the demand of firearm owners. Director Ricardo de Leon of the Police Community Relations sums up the government’s fear should it loosen up the rules on permit to carry firearms: The danger of having too many firearms on the streets."

FULL STORY BELOW:

Two Bronx cops were suspended after they came to blows at roll call because both of them wanted to drive the patrol car on their shift, sources said yesterday.

Officers Paul Damore and Farrell Conroy, both of the 45th Precinct in the Schuylerville section of the Bronx, were suspended Sunday at 3 p.m.

Sources said the pair, who were sharing a car, could not agree on who would get to drive and began fistfighting at roll call, a time when each precinct's patrol officers gather for the start of their shift.

Police officials said the two were suspended for "conduct unbecoming of the Police Department."

"There's an article on this Vote/Blog/Committee/Caucus web site by Phyllis Schlafly, borrowed from townhall.com, called 'COG stands for surprising assault on democracy'. Personally, I think COG stands for Congress of Goons. Because that's what we would get."

"The COG Committee is distressed that it would take several months for special elections to vote up a second string of US congresscrooks, leaving us lowbrows leaderless. That's a problem? Months of no new taxes, no new regulations, no new unfunded mandates, no new rights violations, no new interns inaugurated by incumbents. What a horrifying happenstance for the Big Government class. People might actually discover that they don't need to be lead!"
