06/07/07 Gun Stolen From D.C. Officer Used In Crimes

The D.C. government and police department oppose gun ownership rights for law-abiding citizens, but clearly cannot provide protection for Washingtonians. A case in point, a service weapon stolen from a D.C. police lieutenant's desk at the 4th District police station has been tied to a spate of crimes in which at least six people, four of them teenagers, were shot in recent months. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/07/06/AR2006070601614.html

06/07/06 A False Safety

It seems simple enough to require that handguns sold in the United States have gun locks, writes John Lott. But despite the obvious feel-good appeal of these rules, gun locks and safe-storage laws are more likely to cost lives than to save them. http://washingtontimes.com/op-ed/20060705-085728-5245r.htmHoosiers Can Get Lifetime Carry Permits

06/06/29 False Justification

The national media is a power-hungry institution. It maintains its power to determine what is important in American politics and government by making dupes of the American public. The "duping" occurs though media opinion polling. http://www.washtimes.com/op-ed/20060626-094414-6084r.htm

 

06/06/29 Campaign Finance Reform Is A Fraud

"Campaign finance reform," writes George Will, "is what it pretends to combat: corruption.

06/06/26 Despotic City, Courts Fret Gun Owners

The city of Denver has long criminalized what has been legal elsewhere in Colorado, namely the ownership, use and transportation of firearms.

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence June 22 endorsed Sen. Mike DeWine, Ohio Republican, making him the first Senate candidate of the 2006 election season to win the group`s support.

06/06/23 Inconvenient Truth About Global Warming

Richard Lindzen, a Professor of Meteorology at the MIT, writes of the fate of academic dissenters to orthodox doctrine on "global warming." "[T]here is a sinister side to this feeding frenzy. Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis." This is Al Gore's "inconvenient truth." http://www.washtimes.com/national/pruden.htm

At long last, the first legislative nails are being hammered into the gun registry`s coffin.

06/06/19 Would Gun Buyback Increase Peace?

A Kent County commissioner wants to take firearms off the streets by buying them and offering limited immunity to illegal owners. Police Chief Harry Dolan is skeptical.
