News: "We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles . The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright, 1824

I've got my eye on government ...

 An interesting letter in the Australian Shooter Magazine this week, which
 I  quote:  "If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops  in the Iraq theater of operations during the past 22 months, and a total  of  2,112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.

 The firearm death rate in Washington , DC is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same  period. That means you are about 25 per cent more likely to be shot and  killed in the US capital, which has some of the strictest gun control laws  in the US , than you are in Iraq .

 Conclusion? The US should pull out of Washington."
