... "Our success is reflected in the fact that America is more secure today than it was two years ago," Ashcroft told a group of about 150 law enforcement officers and prosecutors. "America is safer than it was two years ago and America is freer today than it has been in any time in the history of human freedom." ...

Is that so? Then why is it that he only gives his police state rallies to police and prosecutors? Why aren't people free to come to his pep talks? Why are little girls' lemonade stands being shut down? Why do people go to jail, with felony charges, for carrying firearms for self-defense in many places? Why do people go to jail for traveling without their "papers"?

John Ashcroft is a LIAR.

Just another example of a Supreme Court that obviously doesn't understand plain English. It's the concealment of the firearm that seems to be the problem, only problem now is the fact that we can't carry them in the open either...so how does one constitutionally keep and bear arms in Ohio? Simple: You Can't...the criminals must be rejoicing.
 

OH: Self-Defense Advocates Call on Legislature to Act in Wake of Ohio Supreme Ct Ruling

The Ohio Supreme Court’s split-decision to overturn rulings from two lower courts, which unanimously agreed that Ohio’s ban on carrying a concealed firearm is unconstitutional, highlights the necessity for legislative action.

“This ruling will force those who disagree with us to face a reality they never imagined,” said Jeff Garvas, OFCC President. “The Court has essentially given the legislature a choice – open carry or concealed carry.”

Clayton Cramer has a lengthy analysis of the Ohio Supreme Court's ruling today. The ruling upholds the Ohio ban on concealed carry, but according to Cramer, does so on a fairly embarrassing foundation: racism and class warfare. Or, in other words, one of the cited precedents was intended to disarm blacks; the other intended to disarm the poor ("tramps").
 

"There were nearly 700,000 violent school crimes in 2000."

WASHINGTON -- "Only 52 of the nation's 91,000 public schools...are labeled persistently dangerous by their states."

"Local school officials have been shooting holes in the label since it was levied in August."

"Some experts say there's a problem with each state having its own guidelines."

"There were nearly 700,000 violent school crimes in 2000. This year is the first time states must identify their most dangerous schools and let those students enroll elsewhere."

"Forty-four states and the District of Columbia reported no unsafe schools." ... [emphasis added]
-------

How many teachers and administrators are legally allowed to protect the children from these 700,000 violent criminals? Zero. Instead, any teacher who is found carrying a self-defense device to protect children is fired, and some have been charged with crimes. Thus, whenever possible, sane people do not put their children into government indoctrination centers.

-------

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Former Lawrence County chief deputy Jim Martin was sentenced to six months of home detention and placed on two years probation yesterday. In late June, the 44-year-old Martin pleaded guilty to a charge of making false statements to help a reserve deputy obtain a firearm and ammunition clip in violation of federal firearms laws.

Federal Judge Sharon Blackburn also ordered Martin to pay a $2,000 fine.

Prosecutors said Martin admitted using letterhead from the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office to write a letter on behalf of three residents who purchased .40-caliber Glock pistols.

It's not illegal to own the pistols the men obtained. The weapons, however, had a gun clip holding 15 rounds of ammunition, which is available only to law enforcement officials. Clips available to the public carry 10 rounds.

One of the problems I have always faced, going into an election, is figuring out who to vote for. Sometimes it's easy; if there's a Libertarian running, he or she gets my vote. But if not, I have to try and synthesize what I have read and researched on each candidate, where they stand on the issues, judge whether they will keep their word if elected, and so on. And in many cases, there's just not much information available. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Outrage follows John Ashcroft like a shadow these days. Last Thursday, it joined him in downtown Louisville.

“I fear for the civil rights of the American people,” said Rose Colley, 75, a mediator and member of Sisters of Loretto, a teaching order established in Kentucky in 1812.

Holding a sign that read, “Homeland Security Means No Privacy,” Colley described the Patriot Act, signed into law on Oct. 26, 2001, as a tactic used by Ashcroft and the Bush administration to erode basic public rights.

“They’re taking away the rights of the people,” she said.

"The public needs to remind lawmakers and Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. before the General Assembly convenes in January what polls have already shown: A majority of Marylanders support gun control. A statewide poll conducted for Marylanders Against Handgun Abuse found overwhelming support (64 percent) for a ban on future sales of military-style weapons. Even among Republicans, the preference (52 percent) was for a ban. That was the finding of a 2003 survey of 838 registered voters by the Gonzales/Arscott Research firm."

"That's certainly good news. It would be nice to think that Section 215 of the act hasn't been used because there is no one planning violent acts against the U.S. and its residents. Unfortunately, that's probably not true. What's more likely is that the provision hasn't been used because it's not a particularly good anti-terrorism tool."
