Bush Lawyers Target Gun Control's Legal Rationale
Submitted by: Robert Lewis

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

 
"Readying for a constitutional showdown over gun control, the Bush administration has issued a 109-page memorandum aiming to prove that the Second Amendment grants individuals nearly unrestricted access to firearms."

"The memorandum, requested by Attorney General John Ashcroft, was completed in August but made public only last month, when the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel posted on its Web site several opinions setting forth positions on various legal issues. Reaching deep into English legal history and the practice of the British colonies prior to the American Revolution, the memorandum represents the administration's latest legal salvo to overturn judicial interpretations that have prevailed since the Supreme Court last spoke on the Second Amendment, in 1939. Although scholars long have noted the ambiguity of the 27-word amendment, courts generally have interpreted the right to 'keep and bear arms' as applying not to individuals but rather to the 'well-regulated militia' maintained by each state."

"The force riot police used last fall against a crowd of peaceful demonstrators protesting a presidential visit was one of the worst examples nationwide of the growing police militarization since Sept. 11, 2001, civil liberties advocates said Thursday."

"When police wearing face shields and body armor moved without warning against a crowd of 200, they struck six people with batons and five others with plastic balls fired from rifles, said three lawyers who investigated the Oct. 14 incident in Jacksonville for the local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union." ...

"Police didn't ask organizers to move the demonstrators and didn't give people time to get out of the way after issuing a bullhorn order to disperse that most in the crowd couldn't hear because of the roar of a helicopter overhead, the investigators said." ...

"In an unusual application of neuroscience research, police agencies around the country may soon be able to equip street corners with microphones and video cameras to fight gun-related crime."

"The system, based on work by Dr. Theodore Berger, director of the Center for Neural Engineering at the University of Southern California, uses the equipment and a computer to recognize gunshots, pinpoint where they came from and transmit the co-ordinates to a command centre. It relies on software that mimics the way the human brain receives, processes and analyzes sound. The system has drawn the attention of several law enforcement agencies, including police departments in Chicago, Oklahoma City and Phoenix and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department." ...

... "Researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark are building a handgun designed to fire only when its circuitry and software recognize the grip of an authorized shooter." ...

"Captain Tocci of the Bayonne Police Department said the pattern-recognition technology was promising, particularly because accidental deaths occur when guns are not safely stored. 'If a child picks up a gun that is not secured, this way it can't be fired,' he said. Guns taken from a home during a robbery would be rendered useless, too."

"'The premise the gun is based on has credibility,' he said. When people see a live demonstration of the pattern-recognition system working, he said, 'you think, yes, this is possible.'"

"Gun-control advocates contend that the .50-caliber, which was used by U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf War, could fall into the hands of terrorists bent on assassination or shooting down an airplane.

"Hornady and Ruger, which have combined to give us such excellent cartridges as the .480 Ruger and the new .17 HMR, have come up with yet a third, and it is a true delight for varmint hunters of all stripes (although not for varmints of all stripes; they will probably detest it).

And now (Friday) Department of Natural Resources staff will share the findings with the executive council of the state's Conservation Congress. Bob Manwell with the DNR says one idea is to lengthen the gun-deer season. 'Specifically it would not be a great deal different than similiar 16-day proposals that have come up over the years. But what it would do is, it would add an additional weekend around the time of the traditional gun-deer hunting season.'" ...
