... "This past week, a new law went into effect in California banning that weapon. It’s the .50-caliber rifle, the Rolls Royce of sniper rifles. It’s a big gun, a favorite of armies around the world, and it’s still available in 49 states in this country to anyone over 18 with a clean record."

"It is, without a doubt, the most powerful weapon you can buy. And, as Correspondent Ed Bradley reports, it's powerful enough to kill a man or pierce armor from more than a mile away." ...

"Last month, the National Academy of Sciences issued a 328-page report on gun control laws. The big news is that the academy's panel couldn't identify any benefits of the decades-long effort to reduce crime and injury by restricting gun ownership. The only conclusion it could draw was: Let's study the question some more (presumably, until we find the results we want)." ...

"There are too many handguns in the wrong hands in Camden, which had 54 homicides in 2004. But the city is fortunate that one of those guns was in the hands recently of a shop owner named Ngoc Le." ...

"There are too many illegal handguns in Camden, in Philadelphia and across the country. But this one episode is a perfect example of what law-abiding gun owners want everyone to understand in the never-ending debate over the Second Amendment. Privately owned firearms, properly certified and used responsibly, serve a legitimate - and sometimes life-saving - purpose." ...

"When Lee McColly sees a woman jogging alone, at night, wearing headphones, he sees a potential victim. Fifteen years in law enforcement have shown him the ugly, dangerous side of humanity, but this experience also provides him with the knowledge of how best to defend himself and disable an assailant."

"Scores of retired police officers in Illinois are eligible to carry concealed weapons under a new federal law."

"But many suburban police chiefs are hesitant to act on the law until clearer guidelines are put in place by state lawmakers."

"The federal Law Enforcement Officers' Safety Act, which went into effect in July, supersedes a state law by allowing retired officers who served for at least 15 years to undergo special training by their department."

"Proponents pushed the act as a way to increase protection for citizens and for retired officers to protect themselves against criminals they may have dealt with in the past. ..." ...

"Last year Congress passed the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act, which allows active-duty and retired police offices to carry concealed weapons ..."

But retired officers 'must annually meet the state's firearm training and qualification standards for active officers,' according to the federal statute. And therein lies the rub." ...

"Police Chief Robert Fulgueira just received commission approval to sell 20 guns that were either confiscated or voluntarily turned in over the past decade -- weapons that most police agencies would destroy. The department is also trading in about 45 old service weapons that were issued to officers."

"Fulgueira set up the deal with Lou's Police and Security Equipment. The Hialeah store ranks first among Florida gun shops in terms of the number of guns sold that were subsequently used in crimes, according to a national study.

"The proposals are sometimes met with outrage when the animals have deep roots in the public imagination."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them. — George Mason, "Remarks on Annual Elections for the Fairfax Independent Company" in The Papers of George Mason, 1725-1792, ed Robert A. Rutland (Chapel Hill, 1970).
