This is our first Reply to Mr. Dave Kopel's smear campaign on National Review Online. It's posted here to take comments from people who frequent KeepAndBearArms.com -- especially from members and supporters of the Silveira v. Lockyer true Second Amendment lawsuit.

Before you read it (if you haven't already read it and shared it with your contacts), do please recall that Mr. Kopel said the Silveira suit is "entirely funded by naïve gun owners," which, if you are a supporter, means you.
 

South Africa and Sweden Outkill the U.S.

"South Africa is the world's bloodiest nation, The Economist notes, with a shocking 114.8 murders for each 100,000 people, compared to only six in the U.S. and two in Japan, according to Interpol."

"More than 21,000 South Africans were killed last year, 'worse than some war zones.' "

"Other countries that outkilled the U.S. on Interpol's list aren't a surprise: Brazil, Russia, Botswana, Zambia, Angola."

"But here's one that might startle you: Sweden, supposedly the land of granola-munching socialist peaceniks, had 10 murders for every 100,000 people. Yes, Sweden is branching out and is no longer just Suicide Central."
 

Bush breaking faith with his conservative supporters (Letter)
Submitted by: Mike Menkus

"Our president, who uses the moniker of a compassionate conservative, is in the process of betraying each category of his conservative base. For example, gun-owners got a rude awakening in April when President Bush announced that he not only would renew the expiring Assault Weapons Ban but also expand the ban to cover more types of firearms. Even by the government's own studies, the ban has had no impact on the criminal use of firearms. Its sole impact and purpose is to ban honest citizens from owning firearms of their own choosing. Gun owners should have immediately realized that they were betrayed when President Bush didn't terminate the numerous executive orders that ban the importation and manufacture of many makes of firearms, something that only takes his signature to do. Usually when a politician sells out his constituents, he creates a commission to do the dirty work. Since gun control only benefits the criminals who would prey upon their disarmed victims, a commission wouldn't provide Bush the necessary political cover to advance his extreme gun-ban goals. So much for the gun owners who thought a Bush presidency would restore their 2nd Amendment freedoms."

"...Death on the tracks — at the rate of about 25 a year — is common enough that residents near the tracks can sense the cues and New Jersey Transit officials have a regular counseling program in place for engineers and other crew members whose trains are involved in what they euphemistically call 'critical incidents,' whether they be accidents or suicides."

Enemies of freedom complain about accidents and suicides via gun use. Maybe they should concern themselves with railroad tracks.

"A casualty list from the Knob Creek Gun Range, which hosted one of the country's largest machine-gun shoots this past weekend, would look something like this: Two dozen old appliances. A dozen junked cars. Tens of thousands of rounds of spent ammunition. Zero people."

"Aim: Having a blast."

"These statistics will be disturbing to the myopic antigun crowd, which fails to recognize the millions of rounds fired safely every year, including the tens of thousands fired at this twice-yearly event that draws everyday folks from as far away as California and Florida."

"The $15,000 price tag for a new gun prohibition policy in the Independence School District caused some board members to fire a few rounds ­ rhetorically speaking ­ at state lawmakers who recently overrode Gov. Bob Holden's veto of the concealed handgun legislation."

"The school board on Tuesday approved the new policy, which forbids carrying guns and other weapons on school property or at any school function. Signs indicating the new policy will account for much of the implementation cost."

"That extra $15,000 might be small change during a typical year, but the school district is facing a budget that has seen millions in state aid shaved from it while Republican lawmakers refused to consider new revenue streams proposed by Holden."

So don't ban guns and save $15,000.

"The real weapons of mass destruction are not the ones being sought by David Kay in Iraq. To millions of people across the world they are the small arms and light weapons that wreak havoc and cause significant loss of life every day. As UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has said: 'The death toll from small arms dwarfs that of all other weapons systems - and in most years greatly exceeds the toll of the atomic bombs that devastated Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In terms of the carnage they cause, small arms, indeed, could be described as 'weapons of mass destruction.' Yet there is still no global non-proliferation regime to limit their spread.' "

-------
What Mr. Annan fails to mention is that governments killed 170 million of their unarmed civilians in the 20th century, and small arms defend over 2 million lives per year in the US alone.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

FAIRFAX, Va. -- Police in Fairfax County want to find a gun that an officer put on top of his car and accidentally drove off without it.

Investigators said the gun was lost at about 5:15 p.m. Tuesday as the officer was preparing to leave the West Springfield District Station.

The officer placed several belongings on top of his car after his shift ended. One of the belongings, a Sig Sauer P229 in a leather holster, was accidentally left on the car when the officer drove away.

The officer realized the gun was missing a short time later and pulled over. However, the gun was no longer on the roof, and the gun was not found during a search of the area.

Police hope the person who picked up the gun will bring it back to police. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information about the gun.

Anyone with a tip can call Fairfax Count Crime Solvers at (703) 691-8888.

So if the gun is used in a crime, will the cop be charged the way a civilian might?

"The Manchester High School teacher who still may face charges for bringing an illegal weapon into a classroom during the course of a social studies lesson was reinstated by the board of education at a special meeting held last Wednesday night."

"The teacher reportedly brought in a disarmed 'stun gun' during the early weeks of class as part of a lesson on self-defense, but told officials she was not aware it was illegal to own such a weapon."

"The board voted in open session to reinstate the teacher, following a closed disciplinary hearing which lasted less than half an hour. About half of the teacher’s students attended the meeting and several spoke in support of her reinstatement."

[Original Title: Parks-Rec weighs anti-gun options]

"The injunction against Missouri's new concealed carry law has bought local parks officials some time to determine how they will keep firearms out of city recreation facilities."

"The Parks and Recreation Commission met Monday to discuss the issue, but took no formal action because of a St. Louis Circuit Court judge's decision on Friday to temporarily block the law from taking effect Saturday."

"The commission had been slated to act on a policy that would endorse the related council bill, designate gated parks facilities -- such as tennis courts and the Washington Park Ice Arena -- as amusement parks, and declare open picnic pavilions to be buildings. These measures would bring the local ordinance more closely into line with the provisions of the state statute, said Bill Lockwood, director of the Parks and Recreation Department."

"The War on Drugs, and the war on all vices is really a war on freedoms. Conservatives need to look at this situation and realize with this hard lesson why you can't regulate morality. Why, even if Rush was popping hundreds of pills a day, the law shouldn't have anything to say about it, unless it can come up with a tangible victim who is not also the aggressor."

"Rush was functioning fine. He was working two demanding jobs, juggling an amazingly complex schedule, pulling in millions of dollars, entertaining millions of people, paying millions in taxes. Maybe when all those millions are subject to federal asset forfeiture laws and they tell Rush he can't do his radio show from jail will you social conservatives realize the full implications of what you legislate."

"It's the land of the free - but only for those with the lily white souls of choirboys. Care to start casting stones? This is why allegations of immoral conduct stick to Republicans, but slide right off Slick Willie. The element of hypocrisy is the adhesive."

"You picked your own switch, GOP. Now they are going to beat the crap out of you with it."

"Aldrich has broadened his attack on the socialist drive for total control with his latest book, Thunder on the Left. The book covers a wide range of subjects, but several are of particular interest." ...

"As I read this, I could not help but think of the socialist control freaks' campaign to impose gun locks of one type or another on the American gun owner. Safety, they say, is their chief concern. But as I have pointed out elsewhere, gun locks are dangerous devices which encumber one's self-defense firearm. They could be quite unsafe in an emergency, and are unlikely to be found on an assailant's gun."

"We live in an era of prohibition with an illegal drugs economy running into hundreds of billions of dollars worldwide. It is this illegal trade that sustains a network of hundreds of thousands of career criminals, and criminalises millions of recreational drug users.

"It is now a known and indisputable fact (to everyone except gun-control fanatics, anyway) that where there is a higher chance that the average person on the street will be armed and able to defend themselves against the illegally armed criminals they meet, violent crimes go down. The anti-gun Nazis will deny it to their dying day, but we now know, by published statistics, that the 'Wild West atmosphere' they predicted in states where people are allowed to carry guns with which to defend themselves just didn't happen. Criminals, who couldn't be sure their intended victims were not armed, went into other, less dangerous crime. I'm all for that." ...
