    When Anne Kirkpatrick took the helm at the scandal-ridden Oakland Police Department, she inherited an agency that the city’s mayor likened to a frat house. The veteran police officer knew she inevitably would be asked what it’s like to combat the culture as one of a growing number of women heading police departments, many struggling to repair their public image.

    THE New Hampshire House is considering Senate Bill 454, which would eliminate the permit requirement to carry a loaded, hidden weapon. It still will allow permits to be issued for those wishing to carry hidden weapons in reciprocal states. Your local police chief would be issuing permits to citizens to carry a loaded, hidden gun in far-off states, but not in New Hampshire. Should this legislation become law, everyone with the exception of convicted felons will be allowed to carry a hidden, loaded firearm. Now, ask yourself — should habitual drug users, mental patients and the town drunkard carry a...

He also indicts states issuing driver's licenses to illegal aliens. "Even the president of the United States is prepared to reward lawbreakers," he said, referring to President Bush's proposal to legalize millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. Kouri, an Arab-American,...
