"New York City Mayor Bloomberg recently formed an anti-gun coalition similar to the Brady Campaign, entitled 'Mayors Against Illegal Guns.' This group is comprised of 109 mayors from all over the country including notoriously anti-gun cities like Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Boston." ...

"Your job is to form an informal coalition of your own entitled, 'Citizens Against Anti-Gun Mayors.' If your mayor is a member of the anti-gun coalition you need to expose him or her by calling into your local talk radio station, writing letters to the editor, and telling all of your friends. Then you should try to get 20 or more people together and schedule a group appointment with the mayor. ..." ...

"Statistically, our schools are safe. Students are safer there than anywhere else, including their homes."

"Nonetheless, the sporadic spasms of violence -- shootings in four states in the past two weeks -- are such a shock to the social fabric and the national sense of safety that the authorities feel compelled to do something, if only to convene a conference."

"Thus, this past week the president and first lady appeared at a hastily put together White House Conference on School Safety held in a well-to-do suburb known for some of the capital area's best and safest schools before a screened, invitation-only audience, no Democrats or administration critics, and certainly no gun-control advocates." ...

"President Bush held a one-day summit Tuesday on school violence, his response to recent and deadly school shootings in Colorado, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Had he been interested in more than the photo-op, he might have billed it as a one-day summit on 'how to keep guns out of the hands of men, boys, criminals and kooks,' so they don't shoot up our schools and our post offices and our workplaces and our neighborhoods. The nexus - in Amish Country and Yonkers and New York City - isn't really between schools and violence, but between disturbed people with guns and wherever they wish to wreak havoc." ...

"Three school incidents in the past week." ...

"Governor Blunt thinks some people took something he said in Joplin earlier this week and ran with it---wrongly. He does not favor arming teachers. But he says the general topic is worth talking about ... and maybe some weapons should be available in schools to some teachers properly trained to use them. Governor Blunt says he does NOT favor arming all teachers. ..."

"He says those who think guns lead to a violent society will not agree with him but those who think access to weapons can be part of a solution to a violent situation created by society would more readily be willing to discuss the matter. ..." ...

"State Representative Frank Lasee is tweaking his original proposal a bit, but it still allows teachers to have guns on the job. NBC 15 has learned similar plans are already on the books in other states."

"Three years ago, Utah lawmakers amended the state's conceal–carry law. The change made it legal for teachers, who pass a state–mandated test, to carry guns."

"'The word is out that maybe one or more teachers in a school is carrying firearms,' says Clark Aposhian."

"He's a Utah gun lobbyist and founder of a firearms training organization in Salt Lake City. Representative Lasee is turning to Aposhian for help."

"'They have guns in their schools and it hasn't cause problems or difficulties for them,' says Lasee." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Two Dirigo High School students face charges after they were found in possession of a BB pistol in an incident that prompted officials to lock down the school.

The incident, which took place 30 minutes after classes ended Tuesday afternoon, caused a scare in the wake of recent shootings at other schools in Pennsylvania, Colorado and Wisconsin.

The incident at Dirigo High involved two teenagers who were showing off the gun to friends, police said. Nobody was hurt or threatened, but a 16-year-old Rumford boy and a 15-year-old Dixfield boy were charged with terrorizing with a firearm, a Class C felony, said Dixfield police Sgt. Mark Dow.

The teens were released to their parents and are scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 13.

"One tool Hawkins County Schools use to prevent the violence that has occurred in other school districts nationwide is vigilant students and adults who report potential threatening situations to authorities."

"That effort was put to the test Wednesday at Cherokee High School as police and school officials responded to a report of a student possibly bringing a gun to school. Hawkins County Sheriff's Deputies and school officials were waiting for the student as soon as he got off the bus in the morning.

"Some of us might not be alive today if Wisconsin state Rep. Frank Lasee's idea to let teachers carry guns had been in effect in the good old days when we were learning the three R's."

"What if, instead of a ruler to rap knuckles, your worst nightmare of a teacher had a pistol in her pocket? The occasional incorrigible smart aleck might have ended up in the big principal's office in the sky." ...

"Putting even more guns in schools is his response to the recent rash of deadly school shootings. He says that school personnel should be prepared to defend themselves and their students should someone attempt to do them harm." ...

"'We will endorse regardless of party,' says Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. 'However, gun owners are very concerned and do not want as speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has been consistently vocal against their rights. They understand the significance of these elections.'" ...

"You can't pick up a newspaper and not have your stomach turn from gun-related horror. You still think it can't happen to you? Not here? Think again!"

"High-visibility, gun-related homicides are everywhere. The House quietly passed a bill to gut the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' already-weakened ability to shut down rogue gun dealers who supply the majority of guns used by criminals." ...

"In the past 17 years, California passed a series of sensible gun laws that haven't harassed responsible owners or retailers but have saved lives.

"A recent headline in the (Dover-New Philadelphia) Times Reporter pronounced:"

"'He sticks to his guns, so to speak': Blackwell brings campaign trail through rifle club'"

"Blackwell taking his message to gun owners and organizations is not new. The first time I heard and met Ken Blackwell was at the Ohio Gun Collectors Banquet, probably in 2004. He was already a member of the organization and was the keynote speaker for the annual banquet. It was my first banquet attendance but not Mr. Blackwell’s. Since that time I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Blackwell speak on several occasions." ...

"The man who recently departed as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ordered his staff to help with his nephew's high school homework, wasting the agency's time and violating ethics rules, an inquiry found Wednesday."

"The nephew's project — a documentary about the ATF that took 10 months to complete — was one of a half-dozen examples of lapses in judgment Carl J. Truscott committed before he resigned in August, says the report by Justice Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine."

"The report found that only the high school project demonstrated mismanagement by Truscott, whose employees accused him of wasting federal funds, taking costly trips and creating a hostile work environment." ...

"The Speaking Out essay 'Get tough on illegal gun owners' (Sept. 25) by Sen. Joseph Robach, R-Greece, and the Rev. Marlowe Washington amounts to hanging a dead man. For years, the Republican Senate has blocked legislation that would stop distribution of illegal guns. The Senate refused to act on crime bills passed by the Democratic-led Assembly during 2005-06. These would have expanded the state ballistic database (which catalogs the markings left on an expended round/casing), banned armor-piercing bullets, and required dealers to lock up their weapons after their stores close." ...

"Four Mexicans were killed when a dispute between two Tzotzil Indian families over a pothole in the street escalated into a full-blown shootout."

"One of the families closed off the cracked concrete and mud road in the town of Banelos in the poor southern state of Chiapas to fill in a hole left by heavy rain."

"That angered a family with a transport business who needed to get their truck through, the Mexican daily Reforma said on Tuesday."

"Insults led to blows and finally the two families shot at each other using various caliber guns and a hefty AR-15 rifle, Reforma said. Shootings are not uncommon in Mexico's little-policed indigenous regions, where many take the law into their own hands." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. — Winston Churchill
