    JUNE 10, 10:16 ET WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court said Monday it will not hear two cases that would have offered a test of the Bush administration's newly articulated position that the Constitution protects an individual's right to own guns. Go HERE for the rest of the article.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday stayed out of the politically charged debate on whether the Constitution protects an individual's right to possess guns, a position advocated by the Bush administration in reversing the government's long-held policy. Without comment, the justices declined to hear two cases in which the Justice Department last month said the right to bear arms does not apply just to state militias, a change in policy denounced by gun control advocates and praised by the National Rifle Association. The Justice Department argued there was no need for the Supreme Court to get involved...

    Report Relying On Discredited Science Previously Disavowed As Official PolicyWashington, D.C., The Environmental Protection Agency’s latest report on global warming to the United Nations, Climate Action Report 2002, violates an agreement between the White House and the Competitive Enterprise Institute, three members of Congress, and other non-profit advocacy groups, struck in settlement of a lawsuit. The report relies in part on the discredited National Assessment on Climate Change. As a result of the lawsuit filed in October 2000, the Bush Administration ultimately agreed in September 2001 to withdraw the National Assessment and stated that its unlawfully produced conclusions are “not...

    The Second Amendment is back. Rejecting six decades of the government's head-in-sand approach to the Second Amendment, Attorney General John Ashcroft now says the Founding Fathers meant what they said and said what they meant. The Second Amendment confers an individual's right to keep and bear arms. "Horrors!" say anti-gunners. This exposes John Ashcroft as the "extremist" opponents called him. After all, during the Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., voted against him, saying, "This is not a man who treats people kindly." Michael D. Barnes, president of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, said, "This action is...

    GUN RIGHTS POLICY CONFERENCE 2002 TO BE HELD IN PHOENIX, AZ! The seventeenth annual Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) will take place this year on September 27-29th at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. This year's GRPC should be the biggest and best yet! "Arizona has become a key gun rights battleground on a wide variety of issues from concealed carry restrictions to attacks on gun shows," stated Alan Gottlieb, Founder of SAF. "With Senator John McCain spewing his anti-gun rants, all of these battles have national implications. GRPC 2002 will bring gun owners together and train people across...

    Just a quick one today, but it provides LOTS of reading for you. As you have probably heard, the Justice Department now admits that the Second Amendment is an individual right. However, they are doing so in briefs trying to prevent the hearing of two Second Amendment cases -- Emerson's and Haney's. The Haney case is about a dumb guy who walked into a police station and said he had unlicensed machine guns and that they couldn't do anything about it. He likely did this on his own, without consulting gun rights groups with attorneys, and he is now in...

    n 1995, Steven Emerson got into a Washington taxi and noticed on the seat an Arabic-language newspaper bearing his picture with a bull's-eye superimposed on it. Shortly thereafter, with death threats from Islamic militants multiplying, Emerson went underground. He changed apartments, varied his routes and stayed away from windows. This is a routine he continues to this day, although since Sept. 11 he has sharply increased his profile. It is rare to turn on a cable news program devoted to Islamic extremism without being confronted with Emerson. After a decade of relative obscurity, he now enjoys the status of a...
