CCRKBA Calls Maryland Bill on Semi-Auto Rifles 'Frivolous Pandering'

"A bill submitted to the Maryland General Assembly that would add 20 years to a criminal's prison sentence if he uses a so-called "assault rifle" when committing a violent crime amounts to "frivolous pandering to anti-gun extremism," the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today."

"The measure, sponsored by Sen. Rob Garagiola (D-Montgomery County), got a quick endorsement from Montgomery County State's Attorney Douglas Gansler. The prosecutor told reporters that Garagiola's bill 'is not about gun control. This bill is about putting people who ought to be in jail behind bars.'"

"'That's ridiculous,' CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron fired back. 'This bill is about demonizing a specific type of firearm because of its appearance. It should make no difference what kind of firearm a criminal uses. If that individual is caught and convicted, he ought to be locked up for a very long time, regardless of the kind of gun he used. Senator Garagiola is simply attempting to blame a certain type of firearm for the criminal actions of the person using it, and it's nonsense.'" ...

"Ronnie Barrett got his start as a photographer shooting weddings."

"But things changed more than 20 years ago when the Murfreesboro, Tenn., resident tinkered with the design of a machine gun to create the most powerful rifle available to civilians."

"As of Jan. 1, sales of the .50-caliber BMG (Browning Machine Gun) are banned in California. Although other manufacturers have begun making the weapon, Barrett is at the center of a growing controversy over the sniper firearm used by the world's military personnel and civilians alike." ...

"Barrett, 50, acknowledges that the average civilian doesn't need the weapon."

"'You don't need a five-bedroom home,' he said. 'You don't need Corvettes, breast implants or fishing clubs. Not all guns are hunting guns. This is a toy.'" ...
 

VA: Senate panel narrowly backs gun show bill

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Legislation requiring unlicensed dealers at gun shows in Virginia to conduct background checks on buyers has squeaked through a Senate committee by one vote.

Last year the bill cleared the committee by the same thin margin only to be killed by the full Senate.

Under current Virginia law, only federally licensed dealers are required to conduct check on buyers.

The pro-gun Virginia Citizens Defense League says unlicensed dealers -- such as gun collectors and private sellers -- don't have the facilities to do background checks.

But the bill's sponsor, Democratic delegate Henry Marsh of Richmond says every state on the east coast from North Carolina to Canada has closed the gun show loophole except Virginia.

"Virginians can continue to pack heat the real thing, not toys -- in child day-care centers."

"The Senate Courts of Justice Committee yesterday killed 8-7 a bill that would extend the gun ban that currently applies to schools to privately operated day-care centers."

"The sponsor, Sen. Yvonne B. Miller, D-Norfolk, did not cite any incidents in which a gun was used in a day-care center in Virginia but said she was worried about the potential." ...

"Tom Evans, a gun-rights advocate, said the ban in schools is designed to prevent youngsters from bringing guns."

"'There is not a danger in preschools,' he said."

"He also argued that the ban would not stop someone from taking a gun into a preschool and start shooting." ...

... "Today’s high deer population may shape how the country’s forests look decades from now. The animals are reducing the number of trees and seedlings and affecting which species will survive, forestry experts say."

"In the 14,000-acre Letchworth State Park in western New York, a 1,200-acre 'safety area' for recreation where hunting is forbidden has seen vast damage from overbrowsing by deer."

"'There are no saplings, no underbrush for ground nesting birds,' said Richard Parker, regional director of the Genesee State Park Region. 'There will be no regeneration of the forest. In 40 to 50 years, as the current forest dies, there will be nothing to replace it.'" ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The Saunders County attorney said he will file charges against a Wahoo student who had a gun on school property last week.

School officials found the gun in his car last Friday. It was in the parking lot at Wahoo High School. Students who heard the 18-year-old talking about the gun reported it to administrators.

"We're proud of our students and more schools are finding that out," said Edward Rastovski, with Wahoo Public Schools. "That students are stepping forward and when they know something is not right, come forward and tell us."

The student told police he had the gun to go target shooting after school. On the same day, a Lincoln high school student was arrested for having a gun in his locker.

The incidents are unrelated.

"The National Association of Chiefs of Police released its 17th Annual Survey of Police Chiefs and Sheriffs and some of the survey findings are surprising and compelling. The survey -- released in the January 2005 issue of Police Times Magazine -- had some surprising results on various topics including terrorism, gun control, homeland security, and drug enforcement." ...

"Gun Control: With regard to private citizens owning firearms for sport or self-defense, 93.6 percent of the respondents supported civilian gun-ownership rights. Ninety-six percent of the police chiefs and sheriffs believe criminals obtain firearms from illegal sources and 92.2 percent revealed they hadn't arrested anyone for violation of the so-called 'waiting period' laws. When asked if citizens concealed-weapons permits would reduce violent crime, 63.1 percent said yes." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A jury in Houston recommended nearly ten years probation for a now-ex policeman convicted in the shooting death of a 14-year-old boy.

Jurors earlier found Arthur Carbonneau guilty of a lesser charge -- criminally negligent homicide.

Carbonneau could have been convicted of murder or manslaughter over the November 2003 death of Eli Escobar Junior during a struggle at an apartment complex.

Carbonneau said the shooting was an accident as he and another officer searched for a suspect in an earlier assault.

Police have said that when Carbonneau drew his pistol after Escobar kicked him in the groin, the 220-pound teen kicked the officer's arm and the gun went off.

Jurors recommended nine years, six months and 14 days of probation for Carbonneau, who resigned last April.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

THE Daily News editorial "Gunning for a Solution" gives an unbalanced perspective on the relationship between guns and crime.

If being "awash in guns" leads to higher crime rates, as you suggest, then the handgun ban in Washington, D.C., should make that city safe. Instead, it has one of the highest crime rates in the nation. By contrast, neighboring Virginia, which like Pennsylvania has decriminalized the carrying of concealed weapons, has a significantly lower crime rate.

This past New Year's Eve, an armed storekeeper acting in self-defense shot and permanently stopped the Camden serial rapist. This incident underscores an important point: Guns are used to commit crimes, but at the same time are used to prevent and stop crimes.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Oldham county planners will consider approving a new business Thursday that has the city of Crestwood split in half.

A real estate broker from California wants to turn an old roller rink into an indoor paintball and firearms range. But over 100 residents around the area have signed a petition to keep the business from opening up.

Resident Rob Hansen told Fox 41 News he is not opposed to a gun range in Oldham County, just opposed to the location which is about 3 feet from his house.

But other residents are writing letters of support for this new business. They say this would give local kids something to do.

The Oldham county board of adjustments will discuss the proposal Thursday morning at 10:30 in the Oldham fiscal court building.
