-- Hey, they do it in Europe, right? Should every person be given the ability to defend the nation in time of war, or is this just another bill to enslave the people to the needs of the powerful elite in DC?

"A divided California Supreme Court broadened police powers Thursday by giving officers more leeway to conduct warrantless searches during routine traffic stops."

At a time when we should be more than ever appreciating and honoring our Constitution, some overzealous reactionaries are shredding it before our very eyes.

S.B.228, a bill that seeks to streamline the process by which out-of-state Right to Carry permits are recognized in Virginia, was reported from the Senate Courts of Justice Committee on Wednesday, January 23.

The anti-gun lobbying group called "Americans for Gun Safety" (AGS) unveiled its latest attack on gun shows and the truth this week in an ad it ran in Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper. The ad claimed "As Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Ridge signed legislation requiring background checks for handgun and assault weapons sales at gun shows." In fact, no part of this claim is even remotely true.

Before Minnesota lawmakers can finish saying "Welcome back" on Tuesday, they may find themselves in the throes of debate over the bitter and divisive issue of carrying concealed firearms in public.

In the opening days of the session, legislators are expected to pick up where they left off last year, resurrecting a proposal to guarantee concealed-carry permits to everyone who passes criminal background checks, has no severe mental problems and is properly trained in the use of the weapon.

Failing to register for the draft could mean giving up the right to drive for men in New Hampshire if a Senate bill becomes law.

Linking the driving privilege to registering with the Selective Service System is needed to gain greater compliance from the 18- to 26-year-old men required by federal law to register, witnesses told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

"I note there is a bill awaiting the governor's signature that will mandate FOID holders be background checked every six months. Think on that. What could be the purpose of such a thing except to find more gun owners to seize guns from? Isn't it a fact that to buy a gun today you have to be checked anyway?" --John Birch, Concealed Carry

In Utah, 64 out of 41,800 (0.153%) concealed weapons permit holders have had their permits revoked due to felony convictions since 1994. Yet the writers complain,

"Still, the Capitol Preservation Board ruled that concealed weapons holders can carry their guns inside the Capitol during the legislative session, and lawmakers are considering bills to relax gun-safety class requirements and fees to get a concealed-carry permit." --Paul Rolley and JoAnn Jacobson Wells, The Salt Lake Tribune

"police think most of those guns are still on the streets."

"That's because the detectives on the case say they were unable to get a search warrant to recover the guns from a West Palm Beach apartment because a Palm Beach County judge, upset at being called at 3:30a.m., refused to sign it."

KABA NOTE: So now it's the judge's fault? Will criminals ever be blamed for their own crimes?

Parents and gun owners are taking advantage of numerous programs, including lock giveaways, to safeguard children from firearms.

Reports of accidental shootings from unlocked firearms falling into the hands of children upset everyone, even gun groups like Brass Roots, which notes city and county police agencies across Michigan have given thousands of free trigger guards and cable locks to gun owners.

Authorities say it's no surprise that fugitives like Christian Longo choose San Francisco to hide out in. Longo spent time in San Francisco before he was arrested in Mexico this month and charged with killing his wife and three children in Oregon.

Law enforcement officials and criminologists say there are good reasons San Francisco repeatedly finds itself at the center of national dragnets.

-- The Seattle Post-Intelligencer tells us that we can't afford to let people do business without government interference.

"Those who sponsor these shows are by all accounts honest, law-abiding citizens themselves, who would be loath to be party to the sale of a firearm to buyers who are criminals or mentally unqualified to possess them. Background checks will help prevent that from happening."

"In the Justice Department, John Ashcroft's assistant for legal policy is Viet Dinh, formerly a law professor at Georgetown University. He is now an architect of our war against terrorism.

"Our job here," Viet Dinh tells the Legal Times, "is to defend freedom."

There are those, however, including this columnist, who believe that Mr. Dinh, Mr. Ashcroft and President Bush have been seriously eroding the American freedoms they fiercely believe they are defending." --Nat Hentoff

A man behaving strangely in front of a hotel died after police shot him with a stun gun, then wrestled him to the ground and handcuffed him because he had not been subdued.

The man, who police believe was on drugs, refused to get on his knees and put his hands behind his back when police arrived at the hotel Sunday, police spokesman Tony Rode said.

Isaac Shelby, a hero in the King's Mountain battle of the Revolutionary War, was immortalized by having an Alabama county named for him. The war hero surely never dreamed that one day his legend would live on in the form of a rifle carrying his name.

Investment Arms, a Colorado-based custom rifle maker, will introduce a firearm next week honoring the history of Shelby County.

Saginaw County issued nearly 600 permits in the first six months of a new concealed weapons law.

Part of Virginia Whelton's job as a purchasing agent is to escort cash and blank checks from place to place. It's a nervous job for the 50-year-old Swan Creek Township woman, but she keeps peace of mind hidden nearby. She carries a concealed handgun. "I've been around guns for 30 years," she said. "I can carry one. It's my right to do so if I choose."

At the entrance to Rainbow Farm, a strand of yellow police tape flaps in the cold Michigan wind and a dead brown bouquet sits beside a sign that reads, "In Loving Memory of Tom & Rollie."

At the base of a flagpole a few yards up the driveway, there's another sign left by supporters of Tom Crosslin and Rollie Rohm: "Wake Up -- Who's Next? You?"

Although the Lombard incident was a tragic exception, many other abused women are often stalked, harassed, or badly beaten after obtaining restraining orders."

The Anti-gun nuts managed to convince four of Minnesota's former governors to sign a letter opposing the Minnesota Personal Protection Act (a shall-issue reform bill).

This bill passed the House last year, and failed in the Senate by one vote.

The bill is still active this year (Minnesota has two-year sessions), and if we can get it through the Senate this time, the governor has said he will sign it.

A new study shows North Carolina does the best job in the nation of automating criminal records, but not good enough to keep hundreds of people from buying guns who "should not have them."

North Carolina received a B-plus, the highest grade, for adequately automating 94% of its felony and domestic violence records, according to the Jan. 16 study by the "Americans for Gun Safety Foundation."

But 355 "illegal buyers" were still able to obtain a firearm in North Carolina over the past 2˝ years, the "study" found.

KABA NOTE: Who cares what their bogus study found?

"Reading the morning paper, you come across a wire-service article on a subject you know well -- guns. The article is filled with biased language ("gun violence," "spraying bullets" "million moms") and statistics that are either made up or cooked from highly unscientific methodology ("12 students killed by guns every day," "43 times more likely to be killed by a gun in your own home"). You grumble about media bias, then turn the page."

-- A great article by Claire Wolfe and Aaron Zelman.

John Doyle, a longtime hunter, had always treated firearms with care and respect. But about a year ago, with three children at home, both he and his wife worried about the security of the locked storage area where he kept his hunting weapons.

"Whenever I read or hear of a kid getting hurt because they got a hold of some firearm in the house, it just turns my stomach," Doyle said.
