"The statements of Attorney General John Ashcroft, he said, 'reminded me of Germany, under the Nazis. It was the kind of talk that Goebbels used to use to line the Germans up. ... same kind of propaganda... "

"Soros supported the military strikes against the Taliban in Afghanistan, but, after the passage of the U.S.A. Patriot Act and the Bush Administration’s decision to invade Iraq in a preemptive strike, he came to believe that the American government was itself becoming an oppressive regime." ...

"Doug Struyk, Paul Shomshor and Gerald Jones have also received the NRA's blessing in their respective races for the Legislature."

"Gronstal, the Democratic incumbent for the Senate seat, received the NRA's 'A' grade, which is given to solidly pro-gun candidates."

"The NRA gave Gronstal's challenger a C+ grade."

"Republican Loren Knauss, a Pottawattamie County Board Supervisor, said he's surprised, even confused by the grade."

"Congressman Rob Simmons is working hard on the issues that voters care about. They're just not the voters who live in, say, Connecticut."

"Simmons and his allies allowed the federal assault weapons ban to expire on Sept. 13, and on Sept. 29, he voted to repeal gun laws in Washington, D.C., threatening the security of our nation's capital. It's clear that Simmons values his 'A' rating from the extremist National Rifle Association over the safety of Connecticut's residents." ...

"The Ottumwa Courier on Sept. 7, 2004, ran a photo of John Kerry holding a rifle (sic) that on closer examination turns out to be a Remington 11-48 semi-automatic shotgun."

"Ironically, Kerry co-sponsored a Senate bill that would have banned the manufacture of that very shotgun, defining it as an 'assault weapon'. Other guns banned would have been 'any-semi-auto shotgun with a pistol grip.'"

"Examples of that would be, Remington 11-48 and 1100, Browning A-5 among others, also in the same bill would have been 'any semi-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine.'"

"An example of that would be the very popular Ruger 10-22 rifle, among others."

"Kerry has also voted in the past to ban most centerfire rifle ammunition." ...

"The scene was straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting. There was John Kerry, dressed head to toe in camouflage, carrying a 12-gauge Beretta shotgun as he walked through a rural Ohio cornfield. A yellow Labrador retriever bounded playfully at his side."

"The Democratic presidential candidate shot a Canada goose during his hunting excursion yesterday morning, though he had a member of his entourage carry the dead bird for the photo opportunity after the shoot. The goose was a bonus. Mr. Kerry's real target were thousands of gun-owning voters in conservative-leaning Ohio and other swing states like Iowa, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Wisconsin." ...

"Vice President Dick Cheney poked fun at Sen. John Kerry's goose hunting Thursday, arguing that the image of the gun-toting, camouflaged Democrat was an 'October disguise' that masked his voting record against gun rights."

"Just hours after Kerry shot a goose during an early-morning hunt in Boardman, Ohio, near Youngstown, the vice president told supporters in another part of the state that the outing was nothing more than a photo opportunity to hide the four-term Massachusetts senator's record." ...

"'My fellow sportsmen, this cover-up isn't going to work,' Cheney said, speaking to supporters in an upscale Toledo suburb that borders the Ohio-Michigan state line. 'The Second Amendment is more than just a photo opportunity.'" ...

"I was amazed to see a recent letter criticizing (among other things) President Bush's refusal to renew the assault rifle ban."

"Apparently the president knows (and the letter writer doesn't) that the original, and effective, assault rifle ban was the National Firearms Act of 1934."

"The president apparently believes that law-abiding Americans should not be kept from owning a particular gun based mostly on its appearance, which is what the so-called assault rifle ban was mostly based on."

"Apparently the president knows that the tremendous nationwide increase in concealed carry permits in the last four years has not led to any corresponding increase in crime." ...

"The 2nd amendment to our constitution states very simply, 'A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.'"

"I don't believe that requires a Philadelphia lawyer to explain it, nor from Massachusetts or North Carolina either. John Kerry regardless of what he says and with his hunting photo ops, doesn't give a squat about your gun rights and freedoms. True defenders of the 2nd amendment such as the National Rifle association and Gun Owners of America give him a grade of F, while gun ban control and anti hunting animal lovers give him A's." ...

"But yesterday, Mr. Chametla's body lay in a morgue in Queens. The police say it appears he was killed accidentally, when a customer - a retired city police detective - fumbled with his gun. No charges have been filed in the continuing investigation." ...

"As Mr. Malik prepared to cash in the ticket, his pager began beeping, the police say, and as he reached for it, his pistol became dislodged and he tried to catch it. It then discharged."

"Mr. Malik worked for the Technical Assistance and Response Unit before his retirement in May 2002 and had a license for the .380-millimeter handgun." ...

"Six out of seven Frederick County Board of Education members do not believe a Naval Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps marksmanship program will send a mixed message to students about guns on school property." ...

"The program promotes gun safety and is highly structured and supervised, said Michael E. Schaden, school board member. By definition an air-powered rifle is not a firearm because of its muzzle velocity, he added." ...

"Groth [who dissented] said safety was not a concern for her."

"'I understand that they're going through tremendous effort to make it safe,' she said. Her concern she said was that the community could perceive that the school system was 'glorifying shooting. To make it a sport and make it a fun activity just bothers me. It's a little bit of an image problem.'"

"Poor Blake Douglass."

"Apparently, the Londonderry High School senior never got the memo. Life as we know it in American high schools changed April 20, 1999, the day of the Columbine shootings. And Blake appears not to have been paying attention."

"You see, Douglass is at the center of this year's latest high school controversy. He got his official yearbook portrait taken holding a shotgun. Now he's upset because the school won't print the photo in the yearbook's senior portrait section. He's a skeet shooter, he says, and the picture merely shows him with one of the elements of the sport he loves."

"He claims previous years' pictures have shown students holding musical instruments, in-line skates or sports equipment. He claims his shotgun is just like those. The school disagrees." ...

"Mental health records show that hiker Grant Kuenzli, who was killed near Payson while camping in the woods with his dogs, had sought help for mental problems and had attempted suicide at least once."

"However, prosecutors argue that the records are irrelevant in determining whether the man who shot him acted in self-defense and should be off limits to defense attorneys who want their own experts to do a psychiatric autopsy." ...

"Fish, 57, said he acted in self-defense when Kuenzli charged at him, screaming a death threat, after Fish fired two warning shots to halt Kuenzli's two snarling dogs as they ran toward him on the remote trail. ..." ...

"A security guard and two suspected robbers were killed during a cash-in-transit robbery in Cato Ridge yesterday, while what appeared to be a planned cash-in-transit robbery on the North Coast was foiled when police killed two of the suspects."

"In both cases the modus operandi was similar. Suspects - numbering up to 15, high-end luxury vehicles and AK47 assault rifles were among the common finds in the two operations. However, police said they did not appear to be linked."

"In the first incident at Cato Ridge two suspects were shot dead and a security guard was killed during an attempted robbery of a Cash Paymasters Services' armoured vehicle that was on its way to carry out pension payouts in the area." ...

Submitter's Note: But I am confident that their guns were registered in the Central Firearms Registry, as required by the Firearms Control Act.
