"More gun control, please"
Submitted by: Jim Sr

A father recently sent me the following letter: "I had to go to work unexpectedly one night due to an emergency. My 8-year-old daughter was a little worried that I would be leaving her and my wife alone. We live in a very nice and safe neighborhood. I jokingly told her that no bad men would come in our house because I put out a sign that read, 'No Bad Men Allowed.' She frowned and immediately responded, 'Daddy, bad men don't do what the signs say. That's why they're bad.' " ...
 

Australia: "Legal guns under fire"

"Most mass shootings are committed with legal handguns by people with no criminal records, according to research given to premiers and the [Australian] Prime Minister last night."

"Harvard University research shows that only two of the world's 10 deadliest mass shootings were carried out with illegal weapons - those at Port Arthur in 1996 and Columbine High School, Colorado, in 1999."

"A second study, by the New Zealand Mental Health Commission, found that 87 per cent of victims of mass shootings in Australia and New Zealand were shot by people with no criminal history."

"The research was revealed after some state politicians have shown reluctance to crack down on hand gun ownership. They say the problem lies with illegally owned weapons." ...
 

NY: 'Rifle' drive triggers midtown alarm

FULL TEXT BELOW...
-------
A driver who was spotted shifting a rifle in his car touched off a sniper-related panic that snarled the evening rush hour yesterday.
At about 2:50 p.m. a caller to 911 said a heavy-set white man with a beard put a rifle in the back seat of a beige Toyota Corolla on West 47th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, the heart of the Diamond District.

The man drove north on Sixth to Central Park, where another witness saw him shift the rifle to the trunk.

Cops caught up with the Corolla at Park and 50th, but the driver sped off. Police, concerned that the incident was related to the D.C.-area sniper, beefed up checkpoints in and out of the city.

The enhanced security slowed traffic to a crawl. But by 7 p.m. security was reduced to a lower level.

Police said the car belonged to a vacationing Connecticut woman and is still missing.

The NRA's cold, dead agenda

"When the National Rifle Association needs to whip its members into a frenzy, it trots out Moses-cum-NRA President Charlton Heston to hold a rifle over his head and utter a five-word challenge to all who would use the law to take his gun away: 'From my cold, dead hands.' "

"Heston made the same exhortation Monday on behalf of pro-NRA candidates in New Hampshire. Under normal circumstances, his stale harangue might have gone unnoticed. Not this time. With the Beltway sniper warning, 'Your children are not safe,' the extremism of the NRA is even harder to stomach." ...

Dear New York Daily News,

If Mr. Heston's pretending that he'd fight with his life to keep his antique singleshot musket scares you, what do you think about patriots who actually mean those words when they say them and who are armed with modern militia weaponry?

"Prime Minister John Howard and state leaders today agreed to consider a detailed proposal to restrict handguns, including an amnesty and a buy-back."

" 'The prime minister is proposing that there be an equal sharing arrangement of the funding between the commonwealth and the states for that buy-back,' Vic Premier Steve Bracks said." ...

"Mr Bracks said today's meeting of premiers and chief ministers considered two proposals for gun law reform - one from Victoria and another from Prime Minister John Howard." [There's a fancy new way to describe stripping people of their rights and their property.]

"He said the two plans concurred in most details and included proposals to reduce the number of handguns, toughen up licensing procedures, and define handgun sports in much greater detail."

"Mr Bracks said his plan for psychological testing of gun licence applicants would also be considered, as would a proposal for handguns to be stored on club premises." ...

"State premiers and territory leaders met with Prime Minister John Howard today to discuss strengthening Australia's gun laws."

"Mr Howard called for a ban on all handguns except those used in sports and law enforcement after the meeting."

"SSAA spokesman Gary Fleetwood said the Association wanted to ensure there was no repeat of the situation in Melbourne where the Monash gunman joined two clubs with neither knowing how many guns he had."

"He said there also needed to be proper procedures to allow clubs to expel members believed to be unfit to own firearms." ...

The Bloody Sunday massacre of 1972 has been called "England's Waco" by some. It may have taken 30 years, but the massive official coverup is now beginning to unravel. Of equal value is that the testimony by many who experienced those times provides a snapshot of the life of an officially disarmed population dominated by a superior armed force, even when that force is a supposed to be a thoroughly civilized and moderate western power.

"Another attempt is being made to hold a lawful firearms manufacturer responsible for the deliberate, criminal misuse of one of its products by a third-party actor over which it could not possibly have exerted control. In May 2000, Nathaniel Brazill carried a .25-caliber, semiautomatic pistol into his middle school. He shot and killed his English teacher, Barry Grunow, and was subsequently convicted and sentenced to 28 years in prison. A straightforward case? Unfortunately not." ...

"In the United States, nine children are killed by guns every day"
Submitted by: P. Jones

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
ORIGINAL TITLE: "When it comes to kids, the sniper is us"
-------
" 'YOUR CHILDREN ARE NOT SAFE.' "

"Was the sniper referring to the fact that, in the United States, nine children are killed by guns every day, and that about 1 in 1,000 will be killed by guns before age 20?" ...
-------
9 children a day = 3,285 children.

Perhaps this teller of tall tales would like to provide some proof of this gross overstatement. Remove late teen violent gang members shot during turf warfare and remove suicides (personal choice) and the number is a small fraction of that.

But some media figures simply enjoy deceit. These days, one wonders if it's a prerequisite to getting hired.

Brain abnormality may be key to criminal behavior
Submitted by: A. Cers

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"In the 1990s a research team — led by Adrian Raine of the University of Southern California and Monte Buchsbaum, did brain scans of 25 convicted murderers. They found that many of the killers had abnormalities in the front sections of the brain, the so-called frontal lobes."
-------
SUBMITTER'S NOTE:
Science is now proving that the brain, not a gun, is the catalyst to criminal behavior. Banning all guns will not do anything but make us more vulnerable to these biologically-programmed predators.
-------
SUGGESTION:
As so many people have died via gun control -- as a result of being unable to defend themselves from violent criminals -- perhaps it's time to do brain scans on all public servants who promote gun control to get a good look at their frontal lobes.

TRENTON, N.J. -- "Gov. James E. McGreevey and several state lawmakers have reached a compromise that will allow 'smart gun' legislation to move forward in the Assembly."

"The measure would eventually require each new handgun sold in New Jersey to have a mechanism that would prevent anyone other than its owner from firing it. It was passed by the Senate earlier this month, but it stalled in the lower chamber last week."

"Peter Barnes, a Middlesex County Democrat who chairs the Law and Public Safety Committee, refused to move the bill unless it was amended to mandate that law enforcement officers also be required to carry weapons equipped with the technology."

"The compromise announced Wednesday calls for the state attorney general to appoint a task force of law enforcement personnel to study the feasibility of Barnes' demand." ...

"However, critics said the legislation tramples human rights and hands too much power to police." ...

"When a 9-year-old California boy came to the rescue, it's a good thing he was armed -- with a Supersoaker water gun."

"And now, he's going to be recognized as a hero by animal welfare officials."

"Back in August, on a 90-degree day, Isiah Ayala, of Watsonville, saw two puppies in a parked car, with one window barely rolled down."

QUESTION...

It's great to honor a boy for doing a good thing, but when is the last time we heard of such public honors being bestowed upon someone who used a firearm to save someone's life or to help capture a violent criminal?

Is keeping a dog hydrated on the same plane as keeping people from being raped, robbed or murdered?

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their luscious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. This, sir, is what I long for. -- General Francis Marion, American War of Independence, Georgetown, SC [Source: 'Marion, The Life of Gen. Francis Marion' by M. L. Weems, Ch.18]
