What gun grabbers do when they can't grab guns: "They sue the gun owners. Here's a summary of what's going on. The City of New York hires a bunch of private investigators to go into gun stores in pairs to buy guns. While in the store one investigator does all the talking -- asking questions about the gun, etc. -- while the other one fills out the paperwork for the required background check. The gun shop owner then runs the background check and sells a weapon to the man who filled out the paperwork, not the man who was asking all the questions."

Canadians finally face reality: "Canada announced it will arm its border guards following a number of border incidents in which guards abandoned their posts when they felt threatened by reports of armed fugitives headed their way. Canada has unarmed guards along its 6,435km border with the US, but Prime Minister Stephen Harper said that the guards will now be armed, as their US counterparts are. "There have been numerous examples of officers leaving their posts because they simply weren't equipped to deal with the kind of threat that was anticipated to come over the border," Harper said at a border crossing in Surrey, British Columbia. The union that represents the guards said between 400 and 600 officers have refused work over the past 18 months because of the dangers encountered with criminals approaching the border. The government plans to arm and train its 4,500 border agents over the next 10 years. Harper said some will be armed from September next year and about 150 will receive weapons by the end of March 2008."
