Elderly Woman Wounds 3 Home Invaders

November 22nd, 2006

The story has been making its way around the blogosphere.

There is one part of it that I want to be sure to point out:

According to family members, Johnston lived alone. Dozier says that Johnston did have a firearm. She says she took her aunt to get a permit for that firearm, for her own protection.

(My emphasis.) When the information gets sorted out, we will discover two things — that the police, if they announced, did not do so clearly or give a chance to respond, and we will find out that the justification for the warrant was that someone in the house had a handgun permit.

In other words, if you attempt to comply with the law and become properly licensed, you will be treated even more like a dangerous criminal.

Games Subs Play

First of all, I don’t think this Chinese sub surfacing near a US fleet is a big deal, and people in the know seem to agree.

But I do have to wonder — how many of the people who have spent the last few years peeing their pants over how much dolphins and whales don’t like active sonar — the only kind that can reliably detect a modern diesel sub running on batteries — are willing to take this as proof that maybe effective sensor usage in our military is more important than whale comfort?
