    From The Courier-Journal, Loiusville, Ky:


    "You might think that if President Bush and his team were forced to choose between protecting the American people from terrorists and heeding the National Rifle Association, the administration would come down on the public's side.

    What does it take to get on a federal watch list? Just a single bureaucrat stamping 'yes' on a list of suspects.

    I am all for keeping guns out of terrorist hands, however, how do you stop the 'wrong' person from ending up on the list and then having their rights taken away?

    There is a balance there and I agree with the decision (plus terrorists who want guns probably won't buy them in a gun store). My .02

    we could always open a terrorists only gun store. That would simplify things.

    I agree with T2, I wouldn't want my rights taken away.
    When the dark clouds gather on the horizon, when thunder and lightning fills the sky, When fate is but a glint in the eye of a fallen Rattler, And hopes are lost friends, When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard-charging linebackers, And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard-charging running backs ... You must remember that the Rattlers will... Strike, Strike, and Strike again.

    that it is no different than the "No-Fly List". I am all for lengthy background checks and denying shady people guns.

    The fruit flies in this exhibit show just a few of the mutations that occur in natural fruit fly populations.

    HUH? First of all, a terrorist of criminal doesn't need to go to a "store" to get a gun. They can get it off the street easily enough totally bypassing gun laws making the whole issue moot...

    "In fact, according to a new study by the Government Accountability Office, officials approved 47 of 58 applications from terror suspects to purchase or carry guns during a nine-month period last year."

    why did they get applications, to go to a street dealer? How moot!

    You're talking about denying citizens or legal resident aliens a Constitutional right based upon governmental suspicion. Are there any other rights you'd like to see put under prior restraint?

    I also note that nine of these applications were denied. Also, I am sure that our intelligence agencies gather useful information from these applications. The GAO may regret making this information public, as it will drive terrorists to the private firearms market.
