On the police issue as far as possible stats, you may be correct for now. But unfortunately just wait! Unless a miracle occurs! We have not seen anything yet on the terrorism issue! The war on terrorism is over? "NOT" at all! I fear the future and pray everyday for our country. That is another reason we must fight to the end for our Second Amendment Rights! We are the deterrents to terrorism not the Government. As Yamamoto stated fearing the citizens more than the military. We can not invade the American homeland because there will be a weapon behind every blade of grass! And you are correct on the ethnic issue. Maybe if our government officials called things as they really are something would be done about it by also those in the group who would be informed. Political Correctness is going to be the downfall of our great Country! Lets call and Ace and Ace! And by the way, this is not a racial issue as the liberals want to make everything out to be these days. It is simply a a society issue and fact. If there is anyone here that has good friends in that ethnicity group I do! Including military, law enforcement and just good citizens. And those folks are great people and good friends. And as you stated the FBI statistics speak for themselves. To and including AR and other similar weapons are an insignificant part of the problem and the information is available on line.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
-- John F. Kennedy
