2-20: The Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary has been resurrected! After a planting sabbath I've ordered and planted Bhut Jolokia Ghost Chile seeds. Hopefully I'll get some sprouts and healthy plants and a bounty of blistering hot chilies. Follow my progress through the year in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.
2-16: 'Feinstein: "Do you believe that if there was some form of registration when you purchase these firearms that that would make a difference?"
Breuer: "I do, Senator ... Very few hunters in the United States or sports people and law-abiding people really need to have semi-automatic weapons or long guns .... Without that kind of notification [registration], we lose track and can lose track of these kinds of potent weapons."
That chilling exchange on registration and gun bans between arch-anti Second Amendment U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Assistant U.S. Attorney General Lanny Breuer indelibly exposes the first step in President Barack Obama's second-term agenda for the destruction of our freedom."' Read more about this on the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.
2-9: Studies indicate that firearms are used more than 2 millions times a year for personal protection, and that the presence of a firearm, without a shot being fired, prevents crime in many instances. Shooting usually can be justified only where crime constitutes an immediate, imminent threat to life, limb, or, in some cases, property. Anyone is free to quote of reproduce these accounts which are condensed from individual newspaper clippings. Read these accounts on the Armed Citizen page in the NRA section of the Extra department.
2-6: As we knock the foul stench of January off our sandals and stride confidently into February, we bid the stale idiocy of last month a long overdue farewell and good riddance. Now we can all look forward to fresh idiocy in the month of February who's expiration date is still a full month away. If you insist on living in the past you can visit January 2012 in the News Archives.
