Submitted by: Robert Lewis

"President Bush pressured Congress Wednesday to pass legislation limiting jury awards for medical malpractice, saying the legal system favors attorneys who file baseless cases that drive up the cost of health care." ...

"Exhibit A in Bush's case is Madison County, Ill., across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, named the country's top ``judicial hellhole' by American Tort Reform Association last year because of its reputation for big awards."

Submitters note: And for the gun industry: Immediate "Lawsuit Reform" by way of
jury nullification! "...change the law using tools our founding fathers have given us! And it is a tool that the gun grabbers cannot overcome. Know it and if given the chance, exercise it." -- Jury Nullification and the 2nd Amendment

"I'm not buying it."

"In this and several similar instances, Moore states the obvious from every possible direction. He even accuses television personality Dick Clark for having played a small part in this shooting because the mother of the accused child was working inside one of his chain restaurants."

"Because she was a part of the welfare work program, Clark applied for tax deductions."

"It's utterly ridiculous to me how a painfully obtuse muckraker like Michael Moore can achieve an Academy Award and global acclaim for this motive-driven piece of drek."

"Some 20,000 activists concentrated in a low population state (under 1.5 million) can kick ass for gun rights. Gun owner activists are the opposite of gun owner apathetics. Activists are folks who will walk the walk (to New Hampshire) for freedom and not just talk the talk about how our rights are disappearing and yell, “Where is the NRA?” The Free State Project is the hottest, strongest, most effective political strategy to come along in years. You can either stand idly by while your freedoms evaporate, or you can be part of a revolutionary political strategy to concentrate our power for the protection and advancement of all our rights. You will immediately improve your own personal freedom and quality of life by coming to “The Free State” of New Hampshire. Do not miss this opportunity to make political history in the fight for freedom. Do it for America. Do it for your love of guns. Do it for your kids. Do it for yourself. Join The Free State Project."
 

Amtrak Policeman Named NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year

"The National Rifle Association is proud to announce that Officer Rodney Chambers of the Amtrak Police Department has been chosen as the 2004 NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year."

"On the evening of June 9, 2003, Officer Chambers was on patrol at Union Station -- the Washington, D.C. area's largest train station -- when he was dispatched by Amtrak Police Department's National Communications Center to investigate a report of a man with a grenade on the West Porch."

"The suspect had just tried to rob a store inside Union Station by threatening to detonate the device if the clerk did not give him money. The attempt was abandoned when a group of customers entered the store."

"Officer Chambers located the suspect walking away from Union Station, heading toward North Capitol Street N.E. When Officer Chambers stopped the suspect, he turned around, dropped a cloth from his hands to display part of the grenade, and pulled the pin. As the suspect started to drop the grenade, Officer Chambers made an heroic, split-second decision. He quickly grabbed the suspect's hand and squeezed it around the grenade, which prevented the device from activating."
 

Wal-Mart Paints Bull's-Eye on Itself
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"Think back to September, when Bushmaster Firearms settled a lawsuit brought by families of the victims of the Washington snipers. In that case, the plaintiffs based their case on Bushmaster's failure to ensure that retailer Bulls Eye Shooter Supply, which sold the gun used in the attacks, maintained adequate control over its inventory. This was the first case in which a gun manufacturer implicitly acknowledged liability for the criminal acts of one of the end users of its products. (Incidentally, Bulls Eye also settled.) At the time, I suggested the event should strike fear into the hearts of not only manufacturers such as Smith & Wesson and Sturm, Ruger, but also of gun retailers such as Wal-Mart and Kmart -- and soon, one supposes, Sears as well."

"See the connection? In the Bushmaster case, the retailer permitted criminals to gain possession of its guns, and it paid for its mistake. Yesterday, Wal-Mart admitted that it allowed people to take possession of firearms without knowing whether the buyers were criminals."

"The dots are plotted. All that's needed now is to find an instance in which a gun sold by Wal-Mart between 2000 and 2003 was, or eventually is, used in a crime. At that point, I'd expect the trial lawyers to start connecting the dots."
 

JTO: Wal-Mart Settlement Reveals National Trend

"Wal-Mart's $14.5 million settlement with the state of California over the store's high number of gun violations is indicative of a national trend. On average, violations are found at inspections of Wal-Mart and other large retailers at a rate almost twice that of the national average."

"California brought this suit in response to the high number of violations of state and federal law and regulations during routine state inspections at Wal-Mart. Nationally, violations are found during 40% of gun dealer inspections. However, violations are found in 75% Wal-Mart inspections. This disparity can be found in almost every state in the nation. (see below for the violation rate in your state)."

"The owner of a small city store had not heard about the rapist terrorizing downtown Camden before he used a single bullet to end the man's life."

"When Ngoc Le saw a masked man holding his wife at knifepoint, the shopkeeper shot the man in the head, killing him instantly. Five days later, DNA tests showed Antonio Diaz Reyes was responsible for three sexual assaults in November and December." ...

"Police arrived within a few minutes and took Ngoc Le to the police station, but they did not put him in handcuffs. Because he used deadly force to protect his wife's life, rather than his property, Ngoc Le was not charged with a crime."

"This spring I got a wonderfully pleasant surprise. My 17-year-old daughter, Brittany, brought up in urban private schools, has been, well, ambivalent (to put it mildly) about hunting since she was about 11. I respected her position and she respected mine, so we never had a problem with this, and I never expected any change. So I was downright shocked when early this year she announced out of the blue that she would like to go hunting." ...

"We started at the range with a crash course. First, a safety brief. Then .22 rimfire, a good old Remington 541 with a 4X scope. ...She did just fine, both off the bench and from a standing rest. Then it was on to centerfires, starting with a .243. We got her shooting form down, limited the shots off the bench, and in short order she was knocking over bowling pins one by one..."

"American shooters seem to go through periodic phases of 'magnumitis.' We are definitely in one now, and I have no idea how long it will last. Fast-stepping cartridges with large case capacities are interesting, but the reality is that magnum cartridges make a lot of noise and kick harder than most of us like. That's OK if you really need the capability. But most of us don't."

"ZAKHE ZONDO, a community leader in Alexandra, a Johannesburg township, tried to stop a row between two drinkers in a shebeen last month. For his pains, one shot him dead, then killed the other drinker and fled. It was typical of the 20,000-odd violent killings in South Africa every year. A few days later three more young men were shot dead during a petty tussle on a beach near Cape Town. At weekends and holidays, stray bullets whiz as often as fireworks. On average, two South African children die every day from gunshot wounds."

"Though South Africa's homicide rate is dropping slowly, it may still be the world's highest (except, perhaps, for those involved in civil wars). Easily available guns, used in roughly half of all murders, are increasingly popular. Some 200 policemen are killed every year, mostly with pistols (often their own). As Mr Zondo found, pub brawls quickly become fatal." ...

Submitter's Note: And what is the non-firearm homicide rate compared to other countries? See the chart here which shows that South Africa had a significantly higher non-firearm homicide rate than other countries as well, which indicates that guns aren't the cause of the problem.
