President George W. Bush Speaks On The Record

"NRA's Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox discuss with President George W. Bush the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in America and the importance of the 2004 elections." ...

"NRA: Also early on in your Administration, Attorney General John Ashcroft stated his view 'that the text and the original intent of the Second Amendment clearly protect the right of individuals to keep and bear firearms.' This was a clear reversal, was it not, of the Clinton Administration's position?"

"President Bush: It was a clear reversal. It was a position that needed to be reversed—the prior Administration had taken the position that the Second Amendment only applies to state militias and doesn’t protect an individual right to bear arms. My opponent issued a press release earlier this year supporting that exact same position. I know that’s not what the Constitution says. The Constitution gives people a personal right to bear arms. So we did reverse the Clinton Administration’s position, and I think that was the right thing to do." ...
-------

Talk is cheap Mr. President. If this is your administration's position, then why did you oppose the NRA's lawsuit to overturn DC's manifestly unconstitutional gun laws? Why did you agree to renew the AWB if it reached your desk? Why have you not reversed any of the various 2nd Amendment violating executive orders from previous administrations? Why did your administration not support the plaintiffs' petitions for certiorari in Emerson or Silveira? Why have you not worked to repeal a single one of the more than 20,000 unconstitutional gun laws that exist today?

"There was a time when politicians who attacked our Second Amendment freedom made no secret about it—they came at NRA and gun owners directly, with character assassination most often the preferred weapon of choice. Today, the assault on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is no less real, but the war on our rights is being waged on multiple fronts, with new stealth strategies that seek to deceive and divide."

"NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre and NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox examine those strategies and the political landscape that faces gun owners leading up to Election Day, November 2."

"How has the fight to protect Second Amendment rights changed most drastically?" ...

"The latest wave of Hurricanes in Florida and Alabama caused an evacuation of about 1,000,000 people. Leaving your home and traveling to another state can be a frightening experience for any person. Not knowing where you and your family are going to find shelter, not knowing where any medical facilities are located in case someone is sick or hurt, not having any friends or relatives other than your immediate family to help is traumatic. Now throw in the constant threat of terrorism, and you have valid reasons why so many law abiding citizens are legally armed. This was the first time so many legally armed citizens left their home state traveling into other states that honored their state license or permit to carry weapons. They traveled with their pistols. This helped them with their concerns about protecting their family and themselves." ...

"After years of spewing anti-gun rhetoric in efforts to oppose concealed carry reform in Ohio, the state's most liberal Democrats are suddenly very interested in backing concealed carry legislation at the Statehouse."

"In early May, we revealed that Sen. Ray Miller (D-15) had begun shopping for co-sponsors for a bill that seeks to repeal Section 9 of House Bill 12 from the books and expand the ban on concealed carry to all government owned/operated parks, swimming pools, golf courses, and parking lots." ...

"Since then, House Democrats have lined up two of their own anti-self-defense bills." ...

"Carjacker/Road Rage Aggressor Protection:
House Bill 453, introduced by Rep. Daniel Stewart (D-25), seeks to prohibit a person from knowingly causing or attempting to cause physical harm to persons or property by discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle or upon or over a public road or highway." ...

"College Rapist Protection:
House Bill 528, introduced by Rep. Joseph Zoziura (D-56) ... seeks to remove the college/ university parking lot exemption from Ohio law, which allows Ohio CHL-holders to secure their firearms in a motor vehicle on a campus parking lot. ..." ...

"The ISRA-PVF is pleased to announce its candidate endorsements for the 2004 General Assembly races."

"Headlining this year's list of endorsements is Aaron Schock, the Republican candidate for the 92nd House District seat. Schock is squaring off against incumbent Democrat Ricca Slone in what is expected to be a very heated race. Slone has a long-standing record of hostility toward hunters, sportsmen and other lawful firearm owners. Not only has Slone marched in lockstep with Chicago gun control advocates, but she is also one of a handful of lawmakers who actually voted against a state law designed to protect hunters from radical animal rights activists. Radical animal rights activists are well known for committing such acts as poisoning hunting dogs, torching gun clubs, and booby-trapping hunters' duck blinds and tree stands." ...

"B.C. 'Bob' McAtee wanted to do something for the police officers as a way of saying thank you for their years of service. His inspiration was the 'cop on his block' ..."

"Dick Miller sounds like every kids cop, or at least the kind of cop every kid should have in his/her life. I remember mine, I just wish I could remember his name. As kids, in the summertime, after morning chores we would head out from our respective homes and meet up with our .22 rifles and fishing poles. ... The creek meandered into and along the edge of town. When we got that far we traipsed over to the general store for a cola and a candy bar. No one gave a second thought to four or five, twelve to fourteen year old kids moseying up the store carrying guns." ...

There are good cops on the job, and many times the actions of a few so overshadow their efforts they go thanklessly about their duties un-noticed. B.C. "Bob" McAtee is doing something about that, in Lincoln, Nebraska.

"A SENIOR police officer, who wished to remain anonymous has described certain officers of the Western Division, of being 'rogue, corrupt elements,' and accused them of murdering Sherman Monsegue 18 on his birthday last week. 'These cops, who move around in a group,' he said, have a history of terrorising the people of Carenage, Maraval, St James, Scorpion Alley and other districts, beating, robbing, threatening and shooting anyone who runs. The cops run drugs blocks and they shoot anyone who they believe stands in their way. 'Young Monsegue was doing nothing more than gambling, and he ran when he saw the cops, who caught him and shot him. The planting of guns on their victims is nothing new to these officers, so for them to come out and claim they were shot at by Sherman is the norm.'" ...

"The kits include a list of safety tips and a cable lock that will fit most handguns, rifles and shotguns."

"'As a police officer with children, I'm very aware of how quickly a tragedy can happen,' Stanwood Police Chief Tom Davis said. 'Taking a minute now to think about storing firearms can prevent heartbreak in the future.'"

FULL TEXT BELOW

Anthony Fenech, 50 from Saint Julian's, was cleared of attempted murder on Monday.

The accused was fined Lm200 for owning an unlicensed firearm but was cleared of the charges of attempted murder as he was acting in self-defence. The case happened on June 26 2002 in Saint Julian's when Charmel Pace was severely wounded with the accused' s firearm.

The Court found out that Anthony Fenech was in a balcony when Charmel Pace confronted him. Fenech shot the victim when the latter threw in the door. The Court said that the accused was in a state of fear and he shot the victim to defend himself.

Lawyers Joe Giglio and Jose Herrera defended the accused.
