When Johnny went a-huntin'

"In Ohio this week, John Kerry tried to stage something for the press to show that he's not an anti-gun elitist who looks down his nose at the voting public. But the dog-and-pony show he put on in order to hunt geese in Ohio the other day largely served as another political opportunity for the Bush campaign and the National Rifle Association to remind gun owners that few senators have been as hostile to them as Mr. Kerry."

"Mr. Kerry's Ohio hunting adventure started last Saturday, when the senator, campaign entourage in tow, went into a grocery store and asked the owner: 'Can I get me a hunting license here?' Even the phraseology sounded staged. Mr. Kerry ordinarily doesn't talk this way, and his language sounded fake and patronizing — as if he was pretending to talk like someone from rural Ohio." ...

"The Bush Administration has announced plans to open new hunting and fishing programs on 10 national wildlife refuges and wetland management districts in Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, North Dakota, South Carolina and South Dakota as part of its annual Refuge-Specific Hunting and Sport Fishing Regulations."

"With the changes in this proposed rule, there will be 325 public hunting programs and 283 public fishing programs on national wildlife refuges."

"'With this proposal, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will have launched over 60 new hunting and fishing programs on national wildlife refuges since 2001, enhancing access and opportunity for millions of Americans to enjoy their favorite outdoor traditions,' said Steve Williams, usfws director." ...

"Senator John Kerry went hunting for a goose in Ohio Thursday morning, but his record of anti-gun votes could mean that America's gun owners will find it is their 'goose getting cooked' if Kerry becomes president, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), said today."

"'Pictures are supposed to be worth a thousand words,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, 'but Kerry has managed to show his true feelings about gun rights with a lot fewer words over the years. He supported legislation that would ban ammunition for hunting rifles. He backs a poorly-drafted bill that could ban semi-automatic shotguns. He voted to allow anti-gun politicians to file frivolous lawsuits against law-abiding firearms manufacturers. He has, in fact, never seen a piece of gun control legislation that he did not vote for.'" ...

"Remember Bill Clinton? During the campaign, he staged a duck hunt and posed for the cameras as a hunter and sportsman. He got elected and signed into law the most sweeping gun ban in American history, posing for the cameras with Chuck Schumer, Sarah Brady and the rest of the anti-Second Amendment lobby."

"Remember Jane Fonda? She loved guns so much she had her photograph taken with an anti-aircraft gun in Vietnam. The problem was, it was in North Vietnam! She didn’t mind that gun, but spent years trying to deny your firearms freedom in America."

"The National Rifle Association doesn’t want voters to miss the mark this November when voting for America’s next president." ...

"'He has voted not once, not twice, but 50 times against the Second Amendment,' says Chris Cox, NRA’s executive director for legislative action. 'He’s voted to close all hunting lands.'"

"In addition, the NRA says Kerry voted to ban guns nine times, and Kerry proved himself to be a hypocrite by accepting a Remington 1187, a popular hunting shotgun, at a West Virginia rally."

"'Under legislation that John Kerry is currently sponsoring in Congress, this gun would be banned,' explains Cox, at a press conference in Gnesen Township." ...

"A growing number of hunters are losing faith in the National Rifle Association due do the organization's positions on a variety of issues, including the assault-weapons ban and anti-environmental measures, the Knight Ridder news service reported Oct. 20."

"Mike Hayden, secretary of the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, has allowed his NRA membership to lapse because 'I just don't think the NRA represents the best interests of hunters, with the extreme positions it takes.'" ...

"'I'm all for hunters rights,' said Rick Dykstra, a hunter and former police officer in Milford, Kan. 'But when you look at the Second Amendment, I don't think our founding fathers had any way of predicting where firearms would be today." ...
-------

Submitter's Comment: First of all Rick, the Second Amendment isn't about hunting. Second, the Founders couldn't have predicted high-speed printing presses, radio, TV and the internet. Does that mean the First Amendment only applies to quill pens and hand operated printing presses?

... "Dave has a list of writing credits that is simply too long to include in a newspaper column. However, his latest book (he was written a number of books) is 'Shotgunning For Deer.' Dave claims this book is a 'labor of love.' I can state with out fear of being proven wrong that Dave Henderson is considered one of the few true authorities on slug shooting in this nation. Noted gun-writer, Wayne van Zwolll acknowledges that in the foreword by stating 'There are other books on hunting. But if you hunt deer with a shotgun, you must read this one. It’s that good.' That’s a strong testimony, for the book." ...

Tulsa Police are investigating a late Thursday night domestic violence call.

It sent one man to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the head. Authorities received a call in the 1500 block of South Lewis Place that two men were fighting over a DVD player.

One man pulled out a knife; the other man pulled a gun, fired a shot, and hit the other man in the head.

Authorities say his wound is not-life threatening. No one has been arrested.

Tulsa Police say it appears to be a case of self-defense.

"For those of you who read the Pocono Record you may have been horrified by a suicide-murder by a husband in his Penn Estates home on Monday night after his spouse received a protection from abuse order from county court."

"Our readers may still be feeling the tragedy and drama of a recent story detailing the shooting of a Saw Creek woman. In the latter case, a protection from abuse order was denied the woman who feared for her life and said to the judge: 'What does he have to do (before I can get an order) put a gun to my head?!' He shot her seven times, but she survived." ...

"[A decade ago a] district attorney went before the parole board and begged it not to grant her former husband a parole, because, he said, he would kill her. The board ignored her impassioned plea."

"Eventually, the parolee tracked her (or should I say his property?) down, and as he broke down her door carrying four guns, she blew him away with a shotgun." ...

"The jury, which took nine hours deliberating, could not agree on a verdict on the lesser charge and Judge Michael Lance remanded McIntyre on bail to appear in the Kaikohe District Court again on November 11 for a date to be set for another trial." ...

"He creates works of art that you could display in a museum today, and hunt deer with tomorrow. Huddleston's 52-year career as a gunmaker is rife with such seeming contradictions. He carves tiny, delicate floral patterns but his fingers are as thick as hot dogs and as gnarled as oak branches."

Romanian police have arrested a man after he smuggled a handmade machine gun into the country’s sole nuclear power plant, a private TV station said on Friday.

The 31-year-old man, a locksmith at the 750-megawatt reactor on the river Danube in Cernavoda identified as Eleodor Covaliu, told investigators that a person offered him 100,000 lei ($3) to smuggle the bag into the plant and hide it there.

“I’ve been asked to tie it (the bag) up with sticky tape and plant it inside,” Covaliu told Realitatea TV. “I would have earned 100,000 lei.”

Police have launched an investigation.

Analysts have said Romania, which joined NATO early this year and has been a staunch supporter of the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan and Iraq, could be a target of terror attacks.

Submitter's Comment: No violence, no 'aggravating circumstances', and he's fined and loses the air-gun for recreational shooting.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Our Founding Fathers were proud that Americans were trusted with arms because they knew that only when people are armed could they truly be thought of as free citizens. And that's where the circle closes. Those who want to deprive you of your right to keep and bear arms are intending to deprive you of your freedom, period. Like the criminals their policies encourage, these elitists know that it is always best to disarm victims before you enslave them. — Charley Reese
