"You would think from their orchestrated bleats that Maryland gun dealers were caught off guard -- and hadn't known perfectly well for nearly three years that an internal-trigger-lock law would take effect on Jan. 1, 2003. Suddenly ...they fear for their livelihoods... Glossed over in their despair is any acknowledgment that the law might have the effect intended by its advocates: saving lives, especially those of children."

-------
Meanwhile the collective bleat from the anti-gun lobby remains the same: Screw your livelihoods. It's for the children. How vapid and predictable!

"The not-so-good news is there still are plenty of gaping holes in transportation security, particularly away from the airports in the nation's shipping, trucking and rail industries.

'Smart Guns' are Safer Guns

"The safety ramifications for this move are significant. Smart guns can help prevent accidental deaths or suicides. Gun accidents, including suicides, took the lives of 1,200 children and teens in 2000 in the US. Further, some 18,000 young people aged 19 or younger were injured by firearms, and 1,776 were killed in homicides according to the Centers for Disease Control." ...

-------
So many lies and misinformation in one little article, it's hard to figure out where to begin! For starters, accidents are not suicides. Suicides are intentional. Accidents are not. Lumping them together is disingenuous. Also, since a vast number of the "teens" killed by gunfire are criminals, how will "smart" guns save them?

"But for the first time in seven years, homicides saw a substantial decline, a 38 percent decrease from 2001. Ten people were killed in Wilmington in 2002. In 1995, there were seven homicides, the fewest in recent years." ...

-------
Mayor Baker and his henchmen are quick to point out that while the number of shootings rose, most of the victims "are literally drenched in crime." Keep this in mind the next time the Million Misguided Morons start braying that too many "innocent" children (15 to 24 years old) are being killed by the proliferation of guns in our country.

"Britain will introduce a minimum five-year jail sentence for carrying an illegal firearm, a bid to stamp out a growing 'gun culture' on the streets, the government said Monday. The decision - which would apply to handguns and automatic weapons, firearms most often used in crime - came as the shooting deaths of two teenagers last week reignited the debate on gun violence. A ban on replica guns that can be adapted to fire live bullets also is reportedly under consideration." ...
