A municipal police spokesman said that the slingshots, along with bags of ballbearings, were given to the police in place of their guns.
If the slingshots aren’t effective, they could always give ‘em swords and spears.
Maybe next they’ll take away their bicycles and give ‘em donkeys to ride.

Davis is the ranking Republican on the Committee on Oversight and GovernmentReform.
The 18 lawmakers say the Justice Department has been "remarkably incurious" about Berger's decision to remove documents relating to the Sept. 11 commission's inquiry into his role in helping prevent terror attacks during the Clinton administration.
After searching the national archives and a search of Sandy Berger’s home there were documents still missing.
Drafts of a sensitive after-action report on the Clinton administration's handling of Al Qaeda terror threats during the December 1999 millennium celebration are still missing, officials and lawyers said.
Officials said the missing documents also identified America's terror vulnerabilities at airports to seaports.
At the national archives, Sandy Berger was seen stuffing papers in his pants and even in his socks in 2004.
Berger claimed any document removal was inadvertent. Stuffing documents in ones pants and socks doesn’t sound inadvertent.
Besides, if it was inadvertent, why did Berger agree to pay a fine for his actions? In addition to the fine, Berger was prohibited from access to classified government materials for three years.
The irony of this is that Sandy Berger could be once again be National Security Advisor should a Democrat be elected to the White House in 2008. His three years would be up long before then.
The polygraph test is too little too late. Even if he fails the test, Berger will continue to ‘get away’ with his crime just like his former boss Bill Clinton always 'got away' with his misdeeds.
Must be nice to be a Democrat in Washington knowing that your actions will not be seriously prosecuted.

Kerry claimed it was intended as a joke when he told students, “If you … do your homework, you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”
Bad news for his supporters in Boston and eastern Massachusetts.
Good news for the Military he tried to defame. This is also good news for liberals all over the county who were heartbroken because of his inept campaign in 2004. They will welcome someone - anyone - who is a little more electable.
Conservatives successfully stereotyped Kerry as a flip-flopper which began with his infamous statement that he voted for the $87 billion before he voted against it.
The $87 billion flip-flop was a gift to the Repulicans that just kept on giving.
Click here for Kerry’s top ten flip-flops. Click here for my favorite post-election picture of Kerry.
Somehow it is fitting that Kerry’s presidential hopes end with one final flip-flop:
He decided not to run before he decided to run.
The Kerry announcement is here.
The sweep netted illegal immigrants from 14 countries in all, including Mexico, Honduras, Ukraine, India, Japan, Poland and Trinidad.
The raids netted 338 illegal immigrants who were arrested at their homes and apartments and 423 who were identified in area jails since Jan. 17.
It was another move in the right direction. However, it is possible that twice that number of illegals came across our southern border while the weeklong raid was in progress.
If the report is false, why does it need debunking? Seems like CNN is stumbling over itself to aid Senator Obama.
Did the report come from a Kinko’s in Abilene, Texas? If so, it could be fake but accurate. Just ask Dan Rather.
The most interesting part of this story is that CNN has so thoroughly rushed to the aid of the man Hillary Clinton considers her most formidable opponent.
After defending Bill Clinton for over a decade, CNN is now defending Hillary’s toughest opponent.
Why the CNN turn-around? Is CNN fearful of a possible woman president?

The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"
The lady then explained she needed it to poison her husband.
The pharmacist's eyes got big and he said, "I can't give you cyanide
to kill your husband! That's against the law! I'll lose my license,
they'll throw both of us in jail and all kinds of bad things will
The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her
husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife.
The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied, "Well now, you
didn't tell me you had a prescription
A handful of top Clinton administration officials and a smattering of lower-ranking ones have taken up with Mrs. Clinton's rivals for the Democratic nomination.
Most cite pre-existing personal or professional loyalties. In some instances, however, the Democratic activists seem to have concluded that they will have more of an impact in the leaner ranks of a rival campaign than in the hierarchy of Mrs. Clinton's long-planned bid.
As the support of Bill’s allies falls away, Hillary will need to fight off her opponents with less support than she had hoped.
If enough of Bill’s allies fade, Hillary and her candidacy may also fade.
Maybe it doesn’t matter who is the standard bearer for the Democrats in 2008.
They have a habit of selecting losing candidates starting with McGovern followed by Mondale, Dukakis, Gore and Kerry.

Kerry (pictured) was supposedly near a decision last fall when he shot himself in the foot with his "botched joke" about President Bush and the Iraq war which was an insult to U.S. troops.
If he decides to run, will Democrats outside of Massachusetts support him? If not, his candidacy may die on the vine even before the Iowa Caucuses.
Democrats outside of Massachusetts as well as the media have not forgotten how his poorly managed campaign left them heartbroken on election day in 2004.
Obama, the current darling of the media, could very well be a formidable opponent and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Hillary will attack Obama on two fronts.
First, Hillary will keep reminding voters that Obama is a mulatto. His father is black and his mother is a Caucasian. This will transfer many black votes away from Obama.
Second, she will call attention to Obama’s Islamic heritage. He attends a Christian church but has not confirmed nor denied his Muslim background publicly
His father was a Muslim who gave him the name Barack Hussein Obama. His mother’s second husband moved the family to Jakarta where he was raised and schooled as a Muslim when he was young.
Obama is probably counting on the friendly media to ignore his Muslim background. Hillary won’t ignore his Muslim connection, however.
This could be quite entertaining.

As the meal went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered up his courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?" After about three split seconds of careful consideration, she answered. "Yes. Yes, I will." After the meal, they stayed and visited for a short time before going back to their separate condos.
Next morning, he was puzzled. "Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?" He just could not remember. He finally mustered enough courage to call her. First, he explained to her that he his memory was not as sharp as when he was younger. Then he thanked her for the wonderful time he had visiting with her at the buffet the evening before.
As he gained a little more courage he finally asked her, "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No'?" She replied, "I said, Yes, yes I will and I meant it with all my heart." Then she continued, "And I am so glad that you called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me."
After his parents divorced and his father returned to Kenya, Barack's mother married an Indonesian student and the family moved to Jakarta. Mr. Obama returned to Hawaii when he was 10 to live with his maternal grandparents
In Indonesia, Barack Obama was enrolled in a Madrassa and was raised and educated as a Muslim
Obama currently attends services at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago’s South Side. However, he is not known to be a regular parishioner.
Mr. Obama’s Muslim heritage will soon be exploited by Hillary Clinton who regards Mr. Obama as her most formidable opponent and the biggest obstacle to the Democratic Party’s 2008 presidential nomination.
