"In January of 2004 I wrote the article For Bush or Not for Bush – that's the question'. Since then I've continued to do my homework and reading all I can about issues of war in Iraq, Bush and Kerry and I've changed my mind. I am going to vote for George W. Bush. Why?" ...

"GUNS"
"Yes, Bush has supported (in words) the extension of 'Assault Weapon Ban', and did not move a finger to encourage members of Congress to extend it. This infuriated both sides of the issue, and this was a miscalculation. However, it worked – AWB expired, RIP."

"During Bush administration no new gun control laws passed, great."

"Bush administration rejected any attempts of U.N. to enforce any U.N. gun control schemes on U.S." ...

"As I write this letter it is just a couple of weeks to election day. The purpose of my letter is to let everyone know who uses firearms for whatever reason, hunting, target shooting, or just collecting, our rights to continue using firearms are potentially in severe jeopardy. It just doesn't seem possible or likely that in the United States of America the long-standing protection of the second amendment could be negated by those who oppose any and all legal use of firearms."

"Unfortunately it is not out of the realm of possibility to lose legal use of firearms in the USA. There are those people in congress and in Hollywood and many others who distort the meaning of the Second Amendment to the Constitution ..." ...

"In this time of election craziness it's easy for us all to become brainwashed into believing complex issues are simple and easily explained in 20 second news bites."

"Election rhetoric only perpetuates this ignorance such as 'Kerry is flip-flopping' on guns. There is more to it than that: He's FOR guns to hunt deer and ducks and our right to bear arms. He's AGAINST folks having assault weapons like Ak-47s. (You know, the stuff armies and terrorist use?)"

"I cannot fathom why President Bush allowed the assault weapons ban to expire. Is it because hunters need AK-47s? Do you really need to take out a deer with a semi-automatic machine gun?"

"Issues just aren't black and white. ..." ...

"With the 2004 presidential election less than two weeks away, the millions of Americans who hunt and fish are debating two choices -- guns or the environment."

"'For sportsmen, it is guns and the environment,' said Adam Kolton, legislative director of the National Wildlife Fund. 'I don’t think a lot of people realize what role sportsmen have had in preserving the environment.'"

"Kolton joined two other panelists for a Friday discussion during the annual Society of Environmental Journalists conference in Pittsburgh."

"A thorough review of witness statements from the night of Victoria Snelgrove's murder at Fenway Park indicates that cops reacted with vengeful rage when a horse was started by a thrown bottle or can."

"I have reviewed many witness statements and reviewed video coverage from the events of late Wednesday night. It is clear that this is what happened when Victoria Snelgrove was murdered:" ...

"Victoria and her group of friends were standing across the street from the wall, on the sidewalk (out of the way of the police, or so it was thought), when someone threw a can or bottle in the air (more exuberant celebration) and when it landed, it startled a horse with a police mounted atop. The cop standing next to this horse immediately swiveled in the direction he thought the bottle had come from and fired off several rounds at head level at the crowd, without any warning at all." ...

"Two police officers dropped the handcuffed man on the brick steps before Sheila Harding's front door, she says."

"From his knees, 23-year-old Richard William Rogers Jr. pleaded to the woman who helped raise him. 'They're locking me up,' he remembers saying. 'But if you give them a gun, they'll let me go.'"

"It was a startling proposition, Harding says: Trade a gun to avoid a criminal charge."

"Interviews and court documents reveal this is a common deal offered by Baltimore police to the suspects they arrest, usually in minor drug cases. It's so typical that one lieutenant recently declared it a regular procedure within the Police Department's Southern District. And some officers developed forms to complete when conducting such exchanges."

"'That's kidnapping and holding for ransom,' says Harding, a 59-year-old South Baltimore resident. 'And because they have a badge and a gun, they're allowed to get away with it.'" ...

"Security forces fired shots in the air and used water cannons and tear gas to disperse about 2,000 angry Muslim youths rioting in Thailand's troubled south, leaving at least six people dead and dozens injured, officials and local media said." ...

"After about six hours the rioters were subdued, and television footage showed authorities forcing the men among them to remove their shirts and lie face down on a nearby beach, some with their bodies half submerged in the sea."

Police and military personnel kicked, pummeled and in some cases smashed rifle butts into young men as they were forced to slither bare-chested across a road on their bellies to trucks which took them away to an army base." ...

"A Dutch court has suspended a policeman from his job for three years for pushing two Moroccans off their scooter last year. One of the two was seriously injured in the incident which sparked a riot."

"Den Bosch court also imposed a 120-hour work on the officer who admitted writing up a false report about the incident."

"The court convicted the 41-year-old man, J. den O., of grievous assault and perjury. The sentence was higher than the public prosecutor's demand because the court ruled that more stringent demands of good conduct could be expected of a police officer compared with normal citizens."

... "I don't usually have much to say about hunting, and when I have time, I hunt as well. But last year something happened that made me frightful of some of these hunters. I overheard a bunch of hunters talking. (okay, maybe I was eavesdropping, but you can't help it when they are talking and bellowing out laughing and trading stories loudly during the breakfast hour in a tiny diner) and what I heard scared the daylights out of me. It made me go on a quest to find out just how many other hunters actually do the things that I heard this group saying that they had done and do. And what I have found out makes me want to make sure I am not in the same woods as some of these rifle-toting people. So what it is this subject about? It is about hunting and alcohol consumption. These are not two subjects that belong in the same line together. Wouldn't you agree?" ...

"Maryland's first bear hunt in 51 years started Monday with a small one: an 84-pound female less than 1 year old."

"State wildlife managers said the animal's size proved that the hunt isn't about trophies. An animal-protection advocate said it only illustrated hunters' blood lust."

"By early afternoon, hunters had registered five black bears at Department of Natural Resources checking stations. The hunt in far western Maryland is scheduled to last six days but it will end after 30 have been taken."

"The first kill was claimed by David Ciekot, ... he downed the bear just after dawn with a 40-yard rifle shot through the lungs from his tree stand on private property near Friendsville in Garrett County." ...

"Youth hunting seasons have taken hold in Iowa. Usually preceding the 'regular' season, the youth seasons allow kids the fun of the hunt, without the pressure of keeping up with the adults, or fighting lousy weather. Not every kid gets his deer, ducks or pheasants."

"However, the chance to get outdoors and get a little extra mentoring is priceless."

"Running September 18 to October 3, the youth deer season allows kids 12 to 16 the chance to use bow, shotgun or muzzleloader to bag a buck...or a doe. Though still wary of humans, deer are a bit more predictable, a month ahead of their loopy pre-rut or peak of rut wanderings. ..." ...

"Hunters sick of sore shoulders might find relief in Federal Cartridge's new low-recoil rounds, which were introduced to stores a few weeks ago just in time for deer season."

"Anoka-based Federal Cartridge designed the bullets to reduce less rifle recoil. The product is expected to be a hit with female, young or new hunters who often get turned off by the kick of a fired rifle, Federal spokesman Jason Nash said."

"Low-recoil rounds are standard lead bullets with copper jackets, but they are made with a lower gunpowder charge than a traditional bullet. The rounds, which sell at a suggested price of $17 for a box of 20, still maintain a high degree of accuracy, allowing a hunter to hit a deer 200 yards away, Nash said ..." ...

"Since taking our handgun safety class and qualifying for concealed-carry permits, we have had several opportunities to talk with people about guns... not formal presentations; just shooting the breeze, so to speak. In our last article (The Truth About Guns, Part 2), we speculated about the deep seated-fears many harbor about guns. In this column we're going to talk about the response from a few "ordinary people" who aren't necessarily pro- or anti-gun, they just don't think about the subject much. As a result, they tend to rely on an un-examined belief that's invariably associated with guns. It's seldom directly articulated but you can hear it implied in their tone of voice when they say 'Oh, you like guns' as though they were saying, 'Oh, you eat babies for lunch.'" ...

But corrections officials say Lee only didn't stick around; it's a move he may come to regret. Because after a four-day bid for freedom, police say Lee could be facing some new charges and some time."

"On Saturday night October 9, corrections officials say Lee and three other men broke out of Georgia's Montgomery State Prison; they stole a white Jeep Cherokee in Cobb County, Ga and ultimately drove it all the way to Oklahoma."

"After a total 11 shots, Birney was right on target, the bullet perfectly piercing the center ring."

"'You're going to need a new target,' Cammer advised. The range at the Rattlesnake Mountain Shooting Facility then went 'cold' ... while Birney went out to retrieve his target and post a new one."

"The exercise Sunday was just one of the qualifications for Birney to become a NRA certified instructor. The session at the shooting range near Benton City was actually the completion of a 20-hour course in rifle instruction, but allowed Birney some time to hone his skills in other disciplines." ...
