Book Launch at United Nations- The Global Gun Epidemic
Submitted by: News Director

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"The book is coauthored with Dr. Vic Sidel, past president of the American Public Health Association, examines the global burden of gun death and injury, the proliferation of guns, the globalization of the gun lobby, international firearms laws and the emergence of a global effort to combat the problem of illicit trafficking and misuse. ...In addition to addressing the root causes of violence it also focuses attention on the need to choke of the supply of illegal guns. In order to do this, it focuses on the sources of illegal guns and the ways in which legal guns are diverted to illegal markets - every illegal gun begins as a legal gun."
 

Out With A Bang

"A famous ad that most boy baby boomers will recall from Boys' Life, the old scouting magazine of the '50s, showed a happy lad, carrot-topped and freckly like any number of Peck's Bad Boys, his teeth haphazardly arrayed within his wide, gleeful mouth under eyes wide as pie platters as he exclaimed on Christmas morn, 'Gee, Dad . . . A Winchester!'"

"All gone, all gone, all gone. The gun as family totem, the implied trust between generations, the implicit idea that marksmanship followed by hunting were a way of life to be pursued through the decades, the sense of tradition, respect, self-discipline and bright confidence that Winchester and the American kinship group would march forward to a happy tomorrow -- gone if not with the wind, then with the tide of inner-city and nutcase killings that have led America's once-proud and heavily bourgeois gun culture into the wilderness of marginalization."

"If you do not like John Wayne movies, skip over to the Entertainment Page and read about Dear Abby’s futile attempts at advice and wire stories about gay cowboys."

"If you do not like Winchester rifles (is there really any other kind?), put the newspaper down and go watch your favorite sitcom."

"In the unlikely event the liberals, academics, and the media ever got their way and the United States succumbed to the war on terror, what would life be like here in the place we once called home, and what might the ramifications be for the rest of the world?" ...

"Since liberals have always sought the demise of our Second Amendment, that would be one of the first things to go, as the ability to defend oneself from tyranny usually does in unfriendly dictatorships or theocracies. Any of us right wingers who've written in favor of defeating radical Islam would be either stoned to death, beheaded, or taken away with our families to languish in some prison that would make Abu Ghraib look like Motel 6."

"Florida’s recently enacted self-defense reform eliminates the duty to retreat while not in your home. Such reform gives the presumption of innocence in an armed encounter back to the law-abiding, and limits how an unscrupulous lawyer can use the law against an honest citizen."

"Despite claims by the anti-self defense movement Florida’s law does not change that deadly force can only be used if a person reasonably fears for their life or has a fear of bodily injury. It also doesn’t give immunity for someone who uses deadly force when it isn’t warranted."

"Florida’s new law also strengthened the castle doctrine to allow the use of deadly force whenever confronted by an intruder in your own home and limits the civil liability of a law-abiding citizen that uses legally justified deadly force. A welcome provision that serves to deny a criminal, or their estate, profits that stem from illegal and violent behavior."

Shooting a reminder of right to bear arms (Letter)

"I read with sadness and anger about the death of grocery store owner Pritam 'Sam' Singh in the Dec. 31 Tribune. It is a terrible tragedy when an innocent person dies due to a thug's selfishness, greed and general lack of self-respect and respect for other people."

"... Sam has called police a whole bunch of times." ...

"This horrible event should serve as a reminder to all law-abiding residents that when it comes down to their protection, the police should definitely be called if it is possible to do so. However, more importantly, law-abiding people should always exercise their constitutional Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms."

"Strange that the Brits failed to learn the value of privately owned firearms when we Colonialists took our independence from them with muskets taken off our mantels." ...

"But it is absolutely stunning they have not recognized their error since recently outlawing firearms in England and witnessing an explosion of violent crime."

"Most Americans — including those such as I who have prevailed in individual combat — fervently cherish the right, paid for in American blood, to protect themselves, their families, and their nation by force of arms."

"Growing up with guns saved my life in Vietnam and growing up without the right of gun ownership cost hundreds of thousands of North Vietnam Army and Viet Cong their lives."

"Wisconsin is one of four states that ban concealed weapons, but National Rifle Association lobbyists and Republican lawmakers have been trying to change that for years. The latest version of the bill would have let state residents who pass firearms training and get permits carry concealed handguns, knives, billy clubs and electric shock weapons in most public places save for schools, taverns and police stations."

"Canada's gun control scheme has not just failed -- it has failed disastrously. Clear evidence of that can be found in a comparison of the crime rates for Canada and America."

"While advocates of Canada's type of restrictive gun laws will play with raw figures and show how there might be many more homicides in cities such as Chicago or Miami or Detroit than there are in Toronto, the real story is found by comparing the per capita crime rates. Do that, and you will discover that Canada's crime rate is skyrocketing while down in the states, overall crime is declining."

"NCAA shooters hit targets that most of us can barely see, carrying rifles that some of us could barely hold steady."

"A college team fires small-bore rifles and air rifles that weigh between 12 and 17 pounds, or two to three times what normal hunting and military rifles weigh. The added weight helps keep the rifles steady on target."

"The athletes fire air rifles while standing, but they shoot the small bore rifles in the prone, squatting and standing positions. Unlike hunters and snipers, they cannot use tripods or other supports. And they cannot use telescopic sights."

"State Sen. Eric Fingerhut, who says he is the best leader to thrust Ohio forward in this competitive global economy, has formally announced his candidacy for governor." ...

"Opposition to gay marriage, stem-cell research and abortion has galvanized conservative voters who turned out in large numbers to support President Bush and other Republicans during the 2004 presidential election. But Fingerhut says the vast majority of Ohioans 'are concerned about the far right turn that the Republican Party has taken on these issues.'" ...

"Strickland, a supporter of gun owners’ rights and a minister, has been viewed with favor, in part because he’s been able to win elections in the conservative southeastern part of the state."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
