I Know that Ron Paul is No Racist!
Submitted by: David Codrea

... "There is now underway a full-blown smear campaign to paint Ron Paul as a racist. First, there was the lame attempt at guilt by association, with a mere campaign contribution by some red neck racist being touted as 'proof' that Ron Paul is racist. And then there were equally stupid Kevin Baconesque degrees of separation attempts to connect Ron with various so-called 'hate groups.' "

"Now the muckrakers are dredging up ancient, obscure newsletters written by some equally obscure ghost writing employee(s) of Dr. Paul’s way back in the early 1990’s. This only tells me that Ron Paul is a real threat to the political establishment, and they are pulling out all the stops in an attempt to stop the Ron Paul Revolution." ...

American Jewish Committee: "Gun control laws safeguard liberty, rather then restrict it."

January 11, 2008 – New York – "The American Jewish Committee filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court today, asserting that the District of Columbia’s strict gun control laws do not offend the Constitution." ...

" 'Gun control laws safeguard liberty, rather then restrict it,' said AJC General Counsel Jeffrey Sinensky. 'Democracy can only flourish when the government is permitted to protect its citizens from harm.' " ...

"AJC filed the brief with a coalition that includes the Anti-Defamation League, American Jewish Congress, National Council of Jewish Women, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops."

"AJC has a long history of supporting gun control laws, including the federal Gun Control Act of 1968, the federal Assault Weapon Control Act of 1989, and the Brady Handgun Prevention Act of 1993."

KABA NOTE: All of these well-meaning but terribly misguided Jews are encouraged to rid themselves of their Concentration Camp Mentality by visiting and studying the contents thoroughly. Start by reviewing the data showing that the 1968 Gun Control Act in America was taken from the Nazi Weapons Law that paved the way for Kristallnacht and Auschwitz.

"Protecting the 5,000 children ...that are killed by guns every year."

... "We need laws to:"

"1. Make sure everyone is registered to each gun they own." ...

"2. All persons who purchase a gun or is transferred a gun must take a small training class" ...

"3. No sales of AK47’s or similar automatic weapons."

"If gun owners object to this then they are not interested in protecting the 5,000 children or 21,000 Americans that are killed by guns every year. If gun owners really care then they must prove responsibility for this."

FACT: The number of actual children who die by accidental gun deaths has gone steadily down for many years and is less than the number of children who die by falling or drowning.

So much for police reports and restraining orders.
HAMMOND, IN -- "An Indiana woman shoots and kills an intruder breaking into her home, and it's all caught on tape by the 911 call she was making at the time."

"It turns out the man had been stalking her and she bought the gun for protection." ...

"The dispatcher informs the arriving officers that the woman is armed; then, about five minutes after the call began, this final exchange:"

CALLER: "He's at the door now."
DISPATCHER: "He's turning the door knob.. okay.. Is that him I hear?"
CALLER: "Yeah."
DISPATCHER: "Is there anything you can put.."
CALLER: "What are you doing??? "STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT!"..
DISPATCHER: "Okay.. he's in with her!"
CALLER CONTINUES: "STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT! Stop it.. (begging) Please stop it..."

The woman then shot the man.

Police said she will not face charges, because she acted in self defense.

"The ad cuts straight to the point in informing viewers of Huck's role in the Wayne Dumond case, and features the mother of one of Dumond's victims blaming Huckabee for her daughter being raped and murdered." ...

"Mayor Bloomberg has been asked many times whether he harbors presidential aspirations. Yesterday may be the first time he was asked the question under oath. Mr. Bloomberg spent the day sitting for a deposition in a civil lawsuit, the first time he has done so as mayor. The defamation case against the mayor was brought by a South Carolina gun salesman who claims the mayor spoke ill of him in the press. The deposition lasted the entire workday, and the topics ranged from Mr. Bloomberg's views on the Second Amendment to whether he intended to run for president." ...

The Nanny State Goes Nazi

"The precise definition of 'police state' may be elusive, but this one is suitable for our purposes: A police state exists anywhere an innocent, law-abiding family can have its home violated, and their lives threatened, by a paramilitary strike team -- who abducts one of the children at gunpoint -- as the result of an anonymous phone call. Boiled down to its essentials, this is what happened to the Shiflett family of New Castle, Colorado."

"In justifying this attack, Sheriff Vallario....claimed that the use of a strike team was necessary because Tom Shiflett is a 'self-proclaimed constitutionalist.' " ...

"It says something about America's gun culture that, until this week, it was possible for a severely mentally ill person to walk into a store and legally purchase a firearm. But now, after years of unconscionable stalling by Congress, a law to make it harder for such people to obtain firearms has been signed by President Bush. Finally, there will be an end to at least part of this scenario." ...

KABA NOTE: Meanwhile, in the Great Britain, handguns have been banned for over a decade. During that time period -- according to yesterday's news -- the British Shadow Home Secretary says gun-related crimes "increased fourfold over the past decade."

"Supporting reform of Virginia's mental health system is the easy piece."

"After Seung-Hui Cho shot and killed 32 other people and then himself on the Virgnia Tech campus, a bipartisan consensus quickly formed to improve a system that allowed the mentally ill student to go without ordered treatment."

"Eliminating Virginia's gun show loophole, though, is a politically dicey proposition. ... [the Governor's] call to close the loophole shows no sign of eroding a longstanding, bipartisan consensus against such a reasonable action. And that is unfortunate."

"Even within the Democratic governor's own party, opponents remain implacable. State Sen. Creigh Deeds, who has his eye on the party's nomination for governor next year, dismisses the notion, saying the 'so-called' loophole had nothing to do with the April 16 shootings at Tech."

"Well, no. But it could have." ...

KABA NOTE: The psychopath who murdered unarmed, helpless, regulatorily-defenseless students "could have" gotten his firearms in Great Britain, where gun-related crimes have increased fourfold in the last decade despite a total handgun ban.

Support for gun control, on the rise? Fisking Debusmann and the biased NORC.
Submitted by: Stan White

Via the War on Guns, comes this Reuters "news article" by Bernd Debusmann on the decline of America's gun culture:

"Is America, land of shooting massacres in schools and public places, slowly falling out of love with guns?

The answer is yes... for stricter gun controls has been growing steadily and those in favor make up a majority."

Debusmann cites the "University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center (NORC), which has been tracking gun ownership and attitudes on firearms since 1972." Strange, because Gallup has been doing almost the exact same thing since at least 1959...

YUQUAN, China (Reuters) - "Yuquan International Hunting Field in Heilongjiang province draws more than 100,000 domestic tourists a year, many travelling thousands of miles to get their hands on a rifle or shotgun for the first time in a country where gun ownership is strictly controlled." ...

" 'If we need to buy arms, have our guns fixed or renewed, we need to go to places that are designated by security authorities. It would be illegal for us to go through other channels.' " ...

"Once common across China's vast countryside, private gun ownership has been effectively banned since the Communist Party swept to power in 1949, stripping farmers and hunters of weapons." ...
