On Stinging Judicial Rebuke of DOJ Misconduct

 Notable quotes from CFIF (www.cfif.org)
"In one of the most devastating critiques I have ever read of the misbehavior of lawyers at the U.S. Justice Department, a federal judge has issued an order imposing sanctions in U.S. v. Texas, the immigration lawsuit filed by 26 states that is currently before the U.S. Supreme Court.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — The owner of a Colorado movie theater could not have prevented a 2012 shooting that killed 12 people, a jury decided Thursday after victims argued that lax security allowed for the attack.

London, and Cape Cod. Stabbers attracted to gun-free zones

In these two stories, the facts are remarkably similar. Both take place in so-called gun-free zones, which seem to attract crazy people with knives.

First, in Cape Cod Mass.

Across America, record numbers of everyday Americans possess firearms, a record number of states have relaxed their firearm restrictions and public support of the individual right to keep and bear arms remains at historical highs.

"When guns are outlawed, ..."

Presumably when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will continue killing people with knives and other edged weapons. And the good guys will no longer have guns to protect themselves and families. Here is a story from California, where guns are outlawed for most people, especially so in the scene of the crime which was Town Hall, this gun-free "safe" zone, thanks KCRA (www.kcra.com)
