The Sacramento Democrat majority steamroller rolls on: California Senate approves 8 gun control bills, including ammo registry. JWR's Comments: Less well-publicized is SB 108, which will require all gun owners to keep their firearms locked up whenever they leave their property. This raises several issues, not the least of which is that is that it effectively bans gun ownership for anyone who is poor and cannot afford to buy a gun vault. California's high-minded statist leftists are now enforcers of class distinctions--removing rights from po folks. Shame on them. This same mentality was behind attempts to ban "cheap handguns." They infer that "only trashy low class people" would buy them. We have a Constitution that presumes everyone being equal before the law. The "little people" shouldn't be denied a Constitutiomnal right, just because they make less money. The statists have already enacted laws that ban the right to bear arms on public transportation. So the unspoken implication is that if you are rich enought to afford your own car then you have a greater right to be armed. Again, shame on those who employ double standards.

When checking our site's statistics, I was not surprised to see that our "unique visits per week" count is plateauing. Considering the fact that there are now more than 300 survival and preparedness-themed blogs and a new one popping up almost every day, that is understandable. The good news is that SurvivalBlog's share of the readership is by far the strongest. I attribute the blog's success to: A.) Being the first widely-read blog on the subject, and B.) Our longevity and consistent publication of new material has built some incredibly deep archives that are fully searchable. If printed in hard copy, the SurvivalBlog archives would now be nearly 10,000 pages long! Although we produce a versatile archive DVD, we are standing firm on our promise to keep the SurvivalBlog archives fully accessible on line, free of charge.

Supreme Court Decision Shreds 5th Amendment Protection; Your Silence Can Now Be Used As Evidence of Guilt. Now, more than ever before, it is essential that you immediately invoke your 5th Amendment rights upon first contact with police or sheriff's deputies. Under all circumstances, simply state: "On the advice of my attorney I am exercising my 5th Amendment right to remain silent. Am I free to go now?" (Keep repeating this verbatim, as needed.) If they ask for identification, then politely hand them your driver's license, proof of insurance, and (if applicable) your CCW permit. If they ask any other questions, just keep repeating the aforementioned phrase. Saying anything more can only hurt you.

U.S. Attorney's Office says that Kwame Kilpatrick likely to spend 'couple of decades' in prison. Perhaps Mayors Against Illegal Guns should open local chapters in state and federal prisons. Oh, speaking of Bloomberg's Cabal: Is Mayors Against Illegal Guns using NYC resources for its website?
