    CNN has updates on the story of the Georgia SWAT team that threw a flash bang while executing a no-knock warrant that severely burned a nineteen-month-old baby. Habersham County Sheriff Joey Terrell says the deputies involved are "devastated" and that they've been called "baby killers" and received threats. "All I can say is pray for the baby, his family and for us," the sheriff told CNN. Terrell has insisted his officers and those of the local police department did nothing wrong and blamed the target of the warrant (not found at the house that was invaded) on the attack on...
  • BREAKING: Justice Department Considered ARRESTING Conservative Activists

    The current presidential administration has engaged in so much outright thuggery it’s hard to keep track of. It has abused its power at every level and in every department possible, going after its political opponents with the full force of the federal government. The Republicans on the House Oversight Committee have uncovered emails that seem to indicate that the IRS was actively working with the Justice Department in the targeting of conservative groups.

    Since its inception in 2002, the Department of Homeland Security has grown increasingly contemptuous of the rights of the American people. Indeed, the Gestapo-like tactics of one of the Department’s better known masters of overreach–the TSA–are responsible for countless examples of the organizations daily assault on the Constitution. But recently, another of Janet Napolitano’s handmaidens of harassment has begun to make news…albeit only on the web, of course. It is the TSA’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response task force–or VIPR. Organized into mobile swat teams,VIPR has executed some 8,000 highly public searches in the past 12 months. And what meaningful...

    While National Rifle Association officials have been denying that they've been orchestrating a sellout in the U.S. Senate, Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) -- an NRA Director -- has been working on an ammunition ban. On the Senate floor today, he introduced, discussed, defended and tried to justify the "Craig/Frist" amendment. This amendment, said Craig, is needed "to strengthen current armor piercing ammunition law." NRA's point-man in the U.S. Senate says that this is "what the law enforcement community needs." "We don't want to wipe out the hunting and sporting ammunition," said Craig. The "sporting purpose" test was used before --...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Senate agreement requiring child safety locks on U.S. handguns gave Democrats encouragement Thursday that renewing an assault weapons ban might also become part of a package to protect gun makers and sellers from gun crime lawsuits. The GOP-controlled Senate voted 70-27 to require all handguns sold in the United States to have child safety locks, adding the measure to the legislation providing the gun industry immunity from suits when a legally sold gun is subsequently used in a crime. Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer of California and Herb Kohl of Wisconsin argued that requiring child safety locks...

    <p>The Patriot Act has become a magnet for claims that the government is violating our individual rights. Yesterday, the federal commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks heard testimony from several prominent law professors on the dangers of the Act. Last month, Al Gore called for the Act's repeal, accused the Bush administration of suspending civil liberties, and claimed that the government was using "fear as a political tool to consolidate its power and to escape any accountability for its use." Democratic front-runner Howard Dean has called the Act "morally wrong," "shameful," and "unconstitutional." Many cities have refused to assist the federal government in its implementation.</p>

    WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court plunged into the gun debate Tuesday, agreeing to decide whether the government can keep secret information on some gun purchases and crimes, including details of database checks like those used to track weapons in the sniper case. The Bush administration, backed by the National Rifle Association and a police group, claims that confidential records are needed to safeguard investigations and protect people's privacy. Critics say the administration's policy keeps the public in the dark about gun violence and how well crime-fighters are doing. At issue for the Supreme Court is the scope of a...

The dispute was one of the very earliest clashes among prosecutors over which jurisdiction would take the lead role in pursuing a case against John Allen Muhammad, 41, and John Lee Malvo, 17. After a three-week manhunt covering the entire Washington region, Muhammad and Malvo were arrested Oct. 24 at a Maryland rest stop on a federal charge and were questioned that morning...

    Mark Your Calendars: Another Million Mom March is coming! The Brady Campaign united with the Million Mom March is proud to announce the coming of the second major Million Mom March on Mothers' Day, May 9th, 2004 in Washington D.C.

    Posted by Faith Hartzell on March 06, 19102 at 19:46:44: Dear friends and fellow gun owners... I do not often do this, but I am inclined to take up a very worthy cause on behalf of a gentleman who in my opinion, was treated very unfairly by the NRA#146;s Institute for Legislative Action during a recent election. Rather than explain the entire situation, I am forwarding a letter sent by this individual to James J. Baker of the NRA's ILA. I believe that you will be able to understand Mr. Crichton's situation better from his own words. Unfortunately, this very...

    News Max CommentMax Revenge of the Gun Haters Dr. Michael S. Brown Feb. 23, 2002 Politics and public opinion may have turned against the anti-gun lobby, but their burning hatred for guns and gun owners hasn't cooled. Laws passed during the anti-gun witch hunts of the 1990s provide them with a satisfying way to take punitive action against harmless gun owners. Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, which may be one reason it had more murders than any other American city in 2001. Mayor Richard Daley often unleashes verbal attacks on the gun industry ...
