"'It’s about time Congress and America’s scores of millions of law-abiding firearm owners combined to really sock it to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other local gun-hating officials around the country,' gun law expert John Michael Snyder said here today." ...

"'...Anti-gun policies of Bloomberg and his ilk lead criminals to realize they generally will not face armed citizens as they engage in their nefarious activities. ...The policies of Bloomberg and company disarm law-abiding citizens and render decent people helpless in the face of violent criminal behavior. In a very real sense, the blood of the innocent is on their hands!'"

"A more balanced view is to be found in a current book, 'America's Constitution,' by Yale constitutional scholar Akhil Reed Amar. His extensive discussion of the Second Amendment includes the words, 'The Amendment's syntax has perplexed modern readers precisely because these readers persistently misconstrue the words 'militia' and 'people' by imposing twentieth- and twenty-first-century definitions on an eighteenth century text.'"

"The courts have consistently ruled that the Second Amendment does not protect individual ownership of guns. I called Morton Grove, Ill., and was assured that their gun-control law (the first in the nation) is still on the books. ..."

"The mother had come to watch the gun that was used to kill her son be sawed into pieces in an acrid plume of white-hot sparks."

"Ms. DeCambra's act of witness was made possible by a law Maine enacted in 2001 that requires handguns used in homicides to be destroyed when they are no longer needed for evidence. Before that, guns were often sold or auctioned by police departments to raise money for other equipment."

"Gun control advocates, gun rights supporters, and law enforcement officials say they believe that Maine is the only state where the police allow victims' relatives to watch a gun's destruction, and the acts of witness are arranged informally by the police, not spelled out in the law."

"Watching the mayor take on certain causes in which we don't share his views, we've grown to have a good deal of respect for him, even when we think he's wrong. So we're not here to jeer at the demarche on guns that he announced in his inaugural address on Sunday. He wants a national debate about gun control, with an eye to exporting New York's strict gun control laws elsewhere. And we say, let's, by all means, have that debate. If we do, however, the mayor is likely to discover that if other states have gun control laws that are less onerous than ours, it's because other states have caught on to the fact that those laws don't cut crime."

"Mayor Bloomberg's national call to stop the flow of illegal guns isn't playing too well down in Dixie, where many of the firearms used to commit crimes in the city originate."

"'Why don't he take care of his own problems first?' scoffed Marion Hammer, executive director of Unified Sportsmen of Florida, the Sunshine State's chapter of the National Rifle Association."

"Hammer was responding to Bloomberg's pledge, made at his inaugural on Sunday, to bring his fight for stricter gun control 'to Albany, to Washington and to every capital of every state that permits guns to flow freely across its borders.'"

"... You are not safe in Washington, D.C. No one is."

"It doesn’t have to be this way, of course. Thirty years ago, our nation’s capitol was in the midst of a crime wave. The city council responded by banning handguns and requiring shotguns and rifles to be kept unloaded, dismantled, and locked away. The law abiding residents of Washington, D.C. had been disarmed, and the criminals took notice. Violent crime dipped slightly in the two years following the ban, although the murder rate actually continued to climb. By 1979, however, the violent crime rate was back above 1976 levels, and it has remained so ever since."

"The 111 children who died in 2004 from abuse or neglect was up from 95 in 2003. The 2004 review only included 108 of those cases, because officials still didn't have key information in three cases."

"But of those 108 cases, most - 66 - were victims of neglect. The most common type of neglect death was drowning - 22 children in 2004. Eleven died in swimming pools, three in a bathtub, one in a bucket, the rest in canals, ponds or other water bodies."

-------
Guns accounted for less than 2 percent of those deaths, by the way.

How Ohio's Gun Ban Extremists Try to Create the Illusion of Public Support for Gun Control

"Last August, I pulled back the curtain on the gun grabbers' Wizard of Toledo, exposing how Hoover pays herself a generous salary (plus expenses) and receives exorbitant grants from the ultra-liberal Joyce Foundation, and revealing Hoover's strategy to prop up an image of an abstract anti-gun 'public' in the minds of the press and legislators where in fact no such public exists."

"On the subject of the latter, I would now like to turn attention on the tactics Hoover has used to manipulated legislators and the media without ever having to speak to or even have them know she was involved."

"Here's a statistic Virginia should be ashamed of: The state is one of the top 10 suppliers of illegal weapons. One of the reasons is because the legislature allows the Old Dominion to be turned into a veritable bazaar for illegal weapons, where felons and others who could never acquire a weapon legally have easy access, with the state's blessing."

"That blessing comes in the form of a loophole in the state's gun laws, one big enough to drive an arsenal through: Virginia doesn't require background checks on buyers in many of the transactions at gun shows."

-------
Patent stupidity. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, about 2 percent of criminals get their guns at gun shows.
