Dear Citizen,

For obvious reasons, there will be no Front Sight Joke of the Week this weekend. Instead, I would like you to forward this e-mail to everyone you know and ask them to forward it to everyone they know.

Politicians, city officials and businesses who support “Gun Free Zones” are killing us with their lunacy.

Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

The horrifying extent of judicial immunity

   Judges act like divinely coronated kings of the medieval past. It is time the judge created Doctrine of Absolute Immunity is eliminated.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       by Gary Trieste

State parks had $54-million hidden surplus, officials say

California’s state parks system secretly stashed away $54 million even as it was cutting services and threatening to close parks, officials announced today. The department’s director, Ruth Coleman, resigned, and her second in command was fired as the hidden surplus was revealed. The state attorney general’s office is conducting an investigation.

The announcement means the department has plenty of cash, even though it has been soliciting hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations in what was thought to be a desperate scramble to keep parks open.

Officials from the agency that oversees the parks department said the department has under-reported tens of millions of dollars for the last 12 years.

California Senate passes “anti-Arizona” immigration bill

SACRAMENTO (Reuters) – The California Senate passed a bill on Thursday that seeks to shield illegal immigrants from status checks by local police and challenges Republican-backed immigration crackdowns in Arizona and other U.S. states.

The Democrat-led state Senate voted 21 to 13 to approve the California Trust Act, dubbed by supporters as the “anti-Arizona” bill. It blocks local police from referring a detainee to immigration officials for deportation unless that person has been convicted of a violent or serious felony.
“Today’s vote signals to the nation that California cannot afford to be another Arizona,” Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a Democrat who sponsored the measure, said in a statement.
