"Carefully, silent lest he alert his foe, crouching, hunched, sometimes crawling, a camouflaged and heavily armed John Kerry makes his way across the harsh terrain. Later he emerges from this test by fire, this ordeal, to run for the White House on the back of tales of hardship and triumph, tales that some who were not there have the impudence to question, tales like this: 'I go out with my trusty 12-gauge double-barrel, crawl around on my stomach. I track and move and decoy and play games and try to outsmart them. You know, you kind of play the wind. That's hunting'" ...

"A decade ago, Mineola nurse Carolyn McCarthy was standing on a street corner near the Capitol, tugging on lawmakers' sleeves and imploring them to pass the assault weapons ban. They did, and two years later McCarthy was elected to Congress on a gun control platform."

"Now, with that federal law banning assault weapons having expired, McCarthy faces re-election in an atmosphere that in many ways is tougher than the one in which she was first elected. President George W. Bush, who once pledged to retain the ban on assault guns, did little to prevent its expiration. The Republicans who control the House actively sought its demise." ...

"In less than a week, Democratic U.S House candidate Tracy Velazquez went from a 'solidly pro-gun candidate' to a 'true enemy of gun owners' rights' in the eyes of the National Rifle Association."

"The NRA downgraded Velazquez's rating last week, shortly after The Associated Press reported she had received the same top grade given to her opponent, Republican incumbent Denny Rehberg."

"Velazquez on Tuesday said she is an adamant supporter of gun rights and the NRA should restore her top grade." ...

"She accused the Montana Republican Party and the Rehberg camp of pressuring the NRA to change her grade. They are 'engaged in a fraudulent campaign to try to discredit me because they can't defend Rehberg's record,' she said at a Capitol news conference." ...

"Hunting is a major sport in Arkansas, especially in the 1st and 4th congressional districts of its eastern and southern regions, which may explain why voters there see guns as a major issue in the race."

"A new poll for the Arkansas News Bureau and Stephens Media Group found that 60 percent of voters think a candidate's stand on gun rights is important in deciding how to vote in the presidential race. Thirty-nine percent said it is 'very important,' and 21 percent said it is 'somewhat important.'"

"Seventeen percent said it is 'not too important' and 22 percent said it is 'not at all important.'" ...

"Those who would like to see hunting and gun ownership banned should vote for John Kerry. He best represents the interests of animal-rights activists and of those who believe in the disarmament of U.S. civilians."

"Anti-hunting voters should not mind the recent photographs in which Kerry poses with a gun and a dead goose. Kerry has received the full endorsement of the Humane Society of the United States, the Fund for Animals, P.E.T.A. and the Sierra Club, all of which want to see all hunting banned. These organizations understand quite well that what a candidate has to say and do to be elected does not necessarily reflect his/her true beliefs and intentions." ...

"The appearance of 'pro hunting and shooting Democrats' running for office in the coming election is an enticing image to those of us weary of attacks on the Second Amendment." ...

"The most moderate of gun owners should note that he has also voted to ban most center-fire rifle ammunition used for hunting, and to close national forests to hunting. He even voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce Act which would stop the George Soros-backed frivolous lawsuits designed to bankrupt our firearm manufacturers."

"Whether you are a gun owner or not, it is wise to weigh a candidate's position on Second Amendment issues carefully. Don't be misled by an anti-crime smoke screen. It is not about keeping guns out of criminal hands (they don't respect laws); it is about keeping guns out of your hands, the law-abiding citizen. ..."

A quick tip gets a gun out of a Wichita high school. It happened Monday morning at Northwest. School officials got a tip on its anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line, that a student had a gun inside the school. A 16 year-old boy was arrested for carrying a loaded .380 semi-automatic pistol. He also has a prior felony. School officials said, in a letter to parents, there is no indication a threat was involved.

The student was arrested for having a concealed weapon, possessing a firearm as a felon and defacing the ID marks of a firearm. He is suspended and could be expelled for 186 days. Last year two students were expelled for having a gun on Wichita school property.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors gave final approval Tuesday to a ban on the sale of .50-caliber firearms in the city.

An East Bay county passed a similar ordinance in April.

Contra Costa Supervisor John Gioia, who co-authored the ban with Supervisor Gayle Uilkema, had said that .50-caliber rifles are powerful enough to shoot down airplanes and tear through eight inches of concrete from 400 yards away.

Contra Costa became the second county in the state to adopt the .50-caliber rifle ban, following Los Angeles, which passed similar legislation in 2003.

The San Francisco ordinance was sponsored by supervisors Matt Gonzales, Bevan Dufty and Chris Daly.

"There is already a statute setting out how much force can be used to prevent crime or to arrest offenders. But the Criminal Justice Act 1967 says no more than that a person 'may use such force as is reasonable in the circumstances'. In reality, it would be impossible to list all the circumstances in which the courts would regard force as reasonable." ...
