"The Electronic Product Code Executive Symposium began yesterday. It marks the official launch of the EPC Network, an open technology infrastructure developed by researchers worldwide."

"The network uses Radio Frequency ID tags to enable machines to sense man-made objects anywhere in the world, effectively creating an 'Internet of things', according to Kevin Ashton, executive director of the Auto-ID Centre at MIT."

"RFID tags enable products to passively identify themselves to RFID readers, replacing bar codes which must be physically viewed and scanned by a human."

" 'This is the starting pistol for this new technology which is moving next week from research to reality,' Ashton said."

It can also be used to track gun purchases and even individual bullets.

"Several Democratic elected officials in Maryland, including two leading contenders for governor in 2006, called yesterday for a ban on military-style assault weapons as part of a campaign that could force Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) into a legislative battle over gun control." ...

" 'A real version of that weapon terrorized our community,' Duncan said outside the Montgomery County Courthouse in Rockville, where gun-control proponents waved an inoperable replica of the Bushmaster rifle and pointed it at a line of television cameras." ...

-------
So, Lee Malvo and John Mohammed had nothing to do with the terrorization of your disarmed Maryland victims?

"They have them for hunting, for protection and as a hobby. The Dolphins, presumably like all NFL teams and all sports teams for that matter, are armed. Defensive end Jay Williams estimated 40 to 60 percent of football players own guns. He also estimated he is one of the few with a permit to carry a concealed weapon."

" 'I don't believe in an athlete having a gun and not knowing how to use it, or not going through the proper channels of having it,' Williams said."

Bellesiles v. Lott

"The differences between the cases of Lott and Bellesiles derive from fundamental differences in the accusations, and are then magnified by the response to those allegations. The fact is, the allegations against Bellesiles came from a multitude of sources, independently verified several times over, and concerned the core of his work. Bellesiles' responses to the allegations have consistently been inadequate."

"Moreover, rather than a single error or even a few, multiple errors were uncovered, indicating a pattern of at best sloppy record-keeping -- and at worst, deliberate deception. Bellesiles is open to the accusation of deliberate fraud because his errors are both systemic and always seemed to occur in the same direction; that is, misquotes were always misquoted in ways that favored his premise, guns in probate records were always undercounted rather than overcounted, and so on."

"By contrast, Lott was accused of losing data for a single survey that did not form part of his core work. He has been consistently willing to provide the data upon which he based the majority of his work to his critics (who, indeed, have used his own dataset in their criticism). He has responded to the criticisms, and taken steps to replicate the missing data from the survey, producing substantially the same results."

"In short, while Bellesiles' errors were systemic, suggestive of bias in their direction, and undermined the foundations of his premise, Lott's missing survey represents a tiny fraction of the data he used for his books. It's removal from consideration in no way damages the core premise of his work, and even his critics do not claim otherwise."

"In fact, Lott's critics are generally content to debate interpretation of the data, rather than challenging the data itself or the validity of his methods; indeed, many of those critics are dependent upon Lott's own data for their criticisms, even while they refuse to provide their own."

Open carry means that you can carry your loaded firearm on your person in plain view such as in a holster or in your waistband."

A message from Joshua Horwitz, Executive Director of the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence.

"Assault weapons possess features specifically designed by the world’s militaries to make
it easier for the shooter to fire a sustained, high volume of bullets into a wide area.
Millions of these military assault weapons are in circulation around the globe, causing
immeasurable destruction worldwide.1 As a result of America’s weak gun laws, military
assault weapons entered our civilian marketplace decades ago, and criminals quickly
learned how to exploit their military features."

-------
Yes, those darned "military" features like bayonet lugs make those guns into "killing" machines. More vapid tripe from the anti's.

Tell us, Josh. If these evil "killing machines" are so horrible, why are less than 2 percent of criminals who use firearms using these babies to commit their dastardly deeds?
 

Ashcroft Rips Anti-Patriot Act 'Hysteria'

"Attorney General John Ashcroft denounced as 'hysteria' the contention by some librarians and civil liberties groups that the FBI can use a new anti-terror law to snoop into Americans' reading habits."

"In a speech Monday to an American Restaurant Association conference, Ashcroft said people are being wrongly led to believe that libraries have been 'surrounded by the FBI,' with agents 'dressed in raincoats, dark suits and sunglasses. They stop everyone and interrogate everyone like Joe Friday.' "

" 'Now, you may have thought with all this hysteria and hyperbole, something had to be wrong,' Ashcroft said. 'Do we at the Justice Department really care what you are reading? No.' "

-------
Then why not simply revoke that part of the Patriot Act?

"Over the past two years, Americans have been told that only individuals directly involved in terrorism need be concerned. This is not what the law says. The act lowers the legal standard to 'simple relevance' rather than the higher standard of 'probable cause' required by the Fourth Amendment."

"In March 2003, the Justice Department said that libraries had become a logical target of surveillance. Which assurance by Mark Carallo are we to believe?"

"It's remarkable to me how much people are fighting for their liberties now. Woodrow Wilson (two years before he forgot his own words and practically suspended the First Amendment during the First World War) said: 'Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of government power, not the increase of it.' He said this Sept. 9, 1912. Perhaps people could send it to Ashcroft!"

"The statistical likelihood of being killed in a car accident is very low in the United States. The chance of being killed in a terrorist attack is far closer to 0% than 1%. However, it is literally a 100% certainty that you will be a victim of government policies."

"First and foremost among these policies are those that allow government to steal money. The Federal government steals about 30% of everyone's income, while State and local governments steal another 20%." ...

"The battle over civil liberties has just begun. It is not true, as Ashcroft argues, that there's nothing new in the law. If that were true, why would it be needed? Some of the act's provisions threaten individual privacy and free speech by granting the government expanded powers to obtain personal records about anyone -- yes, anyone -- from libraries, advocacy organizations, Internet service providers, hospitals or businesses. The government simply needs to assert that the records are needed for an ongoing terrorism investigation. Secret courts can then give the FBI warrants that used to be vetted by federal courts. Those who must hand over information, moreover, cannot reveal what they have done."

"In a truly free market, no company would ever subject its customers to such an intrusive, humiliating, and pointless experience. They would instead pursue policies that protected their airplanes, employees, and customers more effectively, without turning air travel into a miserable ordeal. The FAA's security rules are pointless, because numerous government tests have shown that a wide variety of weapons can be easily smuggled past them. Air travel is down not due to the fear of terrorism, but due to the fear of excessive airport security intrusiveness and hassle. The worse it gets, the more likely travelers are to choose to drive themselves instead, or just stay home."

"The single shot fired from the .9 mm handgun struck the dog's third vertebra and has left the animal with little use of its right front leg."

"Acevedo, 33, a Reed-Custer High School history and Spanish teacher, believes the officer over-reacted to a situation and that there were many other alternative ways of handling the situation."

" 'The cop's reaction should have been one of last resort,' Acevedo said on a warm late summer Saturday afternoon. 'I would have understood if the dog had bitten or attacked them. I just think the man jumped the gun -- literally.' "

"Off-duty police are permitted to carry a weapon and Police Chief Mike Kinkade said it's a common practice. He added the shooting was within the department's rules and regulations."

"THE shocking murder of City Councilman James E. Davis has stirred the council to consider at least 11 new gun-control laws; Mayor Bloomberg set new rules on guns at City Hall soon after the attack. Yet the vast majority of these rules would never have prevented Davis' murder - and many would actually make future similar crimes more likely."

"City politicians don't realize who will be obeying their new laws - mainly law-abiding citizens, not criminals. Remember: Davis' killer, Othniel Askew, owned his handgun illegally, and brought it into City Hall illegally."

"The mayor's solution is to ban off-duty and former cops from carrying guns in City Hall. But why trust officers on-duty, but not off?"

'What kind of message does this send to the community if a community leader behaves in this manner?' The Judge denied Raqa's application for leave to appeal."

"Nobody was ever in any danger when school administrators were told a student had a pistol pellet gun in his locker."

"That's according to Lincoln Middle School Principal Susan Swartz and Logansport Police Det. Brad Rozzi of the juvenile division."

"Last Tuesday, a classmate of the student approached Assistant Principal Matt Jones and told him about the pellet gun."

" 'There was no reason for panic,' Swartz said."

"Jones and guidance counselor Chris Hess went to the eighth-grader's locker and found one pellet gun and one plastic gun in a backpack. But no pellets were found, according to the principal."

"Swartz said that at no time did the student use the pellet or the toy gun to threaten anybody. The only reason his classmate found out was because he happened to be standing beside the student when he opened his backpack and realized the guns were still there."
