"There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket." -- Major General Smedley Butler, USMC, 1933

# I removed the option to toggle CSS. <noscript> does not validate in the <head> section of an "HTML 4.01 Transitional" document, so I had to choose to not validate, to disable CSS unconditionally in browsers with Javascript disabled, or to remove the option. I removed the option. If this causes a problem for anyone, tell me and I'll likely restore it and accept that my HTML doesn't validate. Today it does validate, and I've declared that with the icons at the bottom of the left column. You can click on them to go to the validation pages. I probably won't try to upgrade to XHTML any time soon, since I've found a number of things I'd have to do that will make the page work badly in old browsers.

# Wow! The West Laramie Fly Store has a web page. We used to stop there every time we passed through Laramie (Wyoming) on a hunting or fishing trip. Fishing & hunting equipment, guns, gas, food. And lots of memories for this humble blogger. I found their site on the Hi-Point Firearms links page. They are a Hi-Point dealer.

# L. Neil Smith at The Libertarian Enterprise - Calling All Democrats - Neil tells the democrats how they can win the 2004 presidential election. It's simple really. Embrace the Second Amendment to give America's gun owners a reason to vote democrat. [tle]

# My latest rant in a High Road thread entitled Concerning carrying illegally..., that was started in September and has recently become active again:

The Second Amendment is indeed an amendment to the Constitution. It is, however, part of the Bill of Rights, without which the Constitution would never have been ratified and we would still be operating under the Articles of Confederation (I can dream, can't I?). The Bill of Rights sets forth basic human rights, rights which may not be legislated out of being. Any law that violates one of them, at the state or federal level, is null and void. Any legislator who proposes or votes for such a law, any cop who enforces it, and any judge who rules in favor of it is a criminal.

There are indeed "gun crimes", though the fact that a gun is the weapon used in such a crime has very little to do with the reason it is a crime. Crime consists of intentionally harming a person or damaging or stealing their property, in person or by proxy or fraud. Period. It is not a crime to possess a tool that could be used to commit a crime. Otherwise, we'd all be criminals all the time for having brains and hands and legs. That a slew of paper non-laws to the contrary have been passed by criminal legislators, enforced by criminal cops, and allowed to stand by criminal judges, does not change this.

I call these legislators, cops, and judges criminal" because the legislators, by making such "laws", conspire to commit assault and kidnapping of peaceful people, the cops actually assault and kidnap those people, and the judges rubber stamp this travesty. False arrest is assault and kidnapping. Kidnapping is a capital offense. Conspiring to commit mass assault and kidnapping is a crime against humanity. Let the trials begin. Let the hangings be public. I'm deadly serious.

# BoomerShoot.org "s the net home of the Palouse Practical Shooters Boomershoot. This is a long range, precision, high-power rifle, shooting event with high explosive, reactive targets up to 700 yards away." It's in northern Idaho, near Moscow, about a hundred miles SSE of Spokane, Washington. The next event is May 7-9, 2004. They have plenty of photos and videos. Kim du Toit intends to attend.

# In case you live in a cave, I'll remind you that the Super Bowl XXXVIII, between the Carolina Panthers and the New England Patriots, airs tonight at 6pm on CBS. I'm no football fan, but I like Super Bowl commercials. I'll probably turn it on while I do something else.
