N.Y.: First guns, now bats: City Councilman James Oddo (R-S.I.) is pushing a bill that would ban aluminum bats because they're . . . dangerous. Earth to Oddo: Sports are dangerous. And even if we were to indulge your "logic," you're going after the wrong end of the equation: It's not the bat that's dangerous - it's the ball. Perhaps the hardball should be replaced with a Nerf ball? In the interests of safety, of course . . . New Yorkers: How long will you allow a bunch of arrogant "do-gooders" to ban whatever they decide is bad for you? Smoking and trans-fats weren't enough to satisfy their appetite. Now bats are on the agenda for those who envision a world without an iota of risk - and are happily willing to ram their dreams down your throats."

Self-defense isn't a privilege, it's a right: "The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today responded to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's latest outrage -- suggesting that citizens in his city don't need gun permits -- by reminding the anti-gun rights mayor that 'Self defense isn't a privilege, it's a right.' Bloomberg announced on his radio program that he wants to reduce the number of people who have concealed handgun permits in the Big Apple. He told his radio audience, 'If you tell me you need a gun permit, you're telling me you don't think the NYPD can do a good job in protecting you. Most people, I don't see any reason why they need it.'"
