KeepAndBearArms.com Smeared by an Ardent NRA Apologist... Again

We share this to show you what NRA's shills are still doing to undermine our work in defense of liberty -- smearing us with lies, once again.

Read further down the page to see KABA director Angel Shamaya's response to these fabrications.

It's unfortunate that alleged "allies" are still trying to smear us even though we'll find out soon whether or not the Silveira v. Lockyer lawsuit will be granted a Supreme Court hearing. One would think they'd stop these smears, at least until we know if the case will be heard.
 

U.S. Gun-Control Laws Don't Save Lives

"...To those of liberal piety, gun control is not just the first commandment but all 10 (they have tossed the Biblical version over the side anyhow). Rid America of the curse of firearms, they loudly proclaim, and no one ever need lock his doors at night. That's nonsense. Gun control as these zealots conceive it would be effective only in disarming the law-abiding." ...

"...There now are 36 states in which permits to carry concealed weapons are available to the ordinary citizen with a clean record (Missouri last month passed its law over the governor's veto). The premise of right-to-carry or 'shall-issue' statutes is impeccably logical: Predators may be more circumspect if they have reason to think their intended 'victims' might have a loaded pistol in pocket or purse - or, if the thugs aren't that smart, it may not be the law-abiding citizen who gets hurt."
 

Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence united with the Million Mom March Statement Commending Sen. Kerry, Rep. Kucinich for Standing up to NRA

"Senator John Kerry and Representative Dennis Kucinich demonstrated very strongly last night at the Democratic debates that candidates need to show they won't stand for the extremist gun lobby's assault on America's basic gun safety protections. I want to commend the two candidates for using their concluding remarks to call attention to the radical efforts being pursued by the extreme gun lobby right now in our nation's capitol. The gun lobby's push to end the ban on assault weapons and to secure sweeping legal immunity for the gun industry are shameful and should be stopped."

Isn't it nice to know that the Brady Bunch considers your constitutional rights "radical" and "extremist"?

"Nearly a decade after her husband was killed and her son wounded in a shooting rampage on the Long Island Rail Road, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy is headed back into battle over the same legislation that propelled her to Congress."

"She fought fervently for gun control after her husband, Dennis, was killed aboard the commuter train on Dec. 7, 1993. The gunman, Colin Ferguson boarded a crowded rush-hour commuter train and opened fire, killing six and wounding 19, including the McCarthy's son, Kevin. He was shot in the head."

If only an armed law abiding citizen had boarded the train along with Colin Ferguson, than maybe her husband would still be with us.

"All the news that liberal misfits print in the New York Times did produce a positive search result for an inquiry regarding the recent passing of self-proclaimed bear expert, Timothy Treadwell. As may be recalled, Treadwell, a so-called expert on life in the wilds among big, fuzzy, friendly bears, was touted as an authority on the late night TV entertainment circuit. Clearly, Treadwell was a media darling due to his preference for the rights and privileges of wild bears over the civil rights of humans."

"Criminologists say the $900 million program, called Project Safe Neighborhoods, is the most aggressive federal crackdown on gun crime ever undertaken. Before being overshadowed by terrorism, it was to be the cornerstone of President Bush's public safety agenda."

"Federal indictments and convictions hit all-time highs last year, but it's too early to tell whether that has meant safer streets, officials at the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics said."

"American shooters have long known Benelli of Brescia, Italy, as a manufacturer of some of the world's most prestigious shotguns. Now comes Benelli's first rifle, the R1, a centerfire autoloader styled as an elegant European-fashion sporter with many of Benelli's signature design features from its shotgun line, and chambered (initially) in .30-06 and .300 Winchester Magnum."

"On the European market this new gun will be known as the ARGO (Auto-Regulating, Gas-Operated), which also provides a clue to its operating mechanism. In the U.S. it will be distributed as the R1 by Benelli. By whatever name, the rifle handles and operates like no other rifle in its category."

Detectives from Richards Bay's Serious and Violent Crime Unit are hunting for three men who shot dead three people and wounded 11 others during a robbery in a tavern at Mzingazi late on Saturday night.

Three men armed with 9mm pistols held up the Roadhouse Tavern and gunned down the owner, Sihle Ntuli, 32, and an employee, Celenkosi Hopewell Mdletshe. A patron, N S Zondi, died after being admitted to hospital.

A 26-year-old security guard, known only as Thembinkosi, was taken to hospital with 10 other people, according to police spokeswoman Tienkie van Vuuren.

The robbers drove off with an unknown amount of cash.

"Four Miami police officers should be sentenced to about three years or less in federal prison for planting guns after questionable police shootings or covering them up, a judge ruled Monday."

"Prosecutors had been asking for sentences as long as 11 years, but U.S. District Judge Alan Gold rejected the harshest attempts to stretch out the prison terms in the city's biggest police corruption scandal in a generation."

"The judge issued a 46-page order in preparation for sentencing hearings Wednesday for shootings by anti-crime units under pressure to halt a rash of deadly tourist robberies in the mid 1990s. Two officers could face as little as five months in prison."

"Responding to an injunction brought against the union and district by strike-weary parents, union attorney Mitch Cogdill said: 'The parents have absolutely no standing to bring this lawsuit.' They 'are not real parties in interest to any dispute between the Marysville School District and the Marysville Education Association.' "

"This is amazing on two counts. Amazing that the union’s lawyer would be so brazen to argue publicly that parents should not have any standing in a matter that affects the education of their children. And amazing that he dismissed the precedent-setting 1983 Clover Park decision where a judge granted an injunction requested by parents to end a 21-day teacher strike."

"In particular, allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons has a negligible effect on crime. Evaluations of the assault weapons ban confirm that our police are at higher risk when these weapons are available to the public." ...

"It also hides the National Park Service rangers, who 10 years ago would have been the guys making sure visitors were enjoying themselves in the park."

"On this night, they have traded their wide-brimmed hats and brown uniform shirts for night-vision goggles and camouflage as they search for lawbreakers."

"National parks and other federal recreation sites in Arizona have some of the highest crime rates of any public lands in the country, and those in southern Arizona lead the list."

"There are armed gangs patrolling our suburbs, identifying possible targets, and our first line of defence - the police - appear to be ineffective in preventing this type of crime. Their duty appears to be to visit the crime scene, take a lengthy statement and then tell you that the people who will take fingerprints will be by in a couple of days because they are swamped with cases."

"Our second line of defence lies in the security companies that are taking over from a capitulated police force, at great cost to us and with no guarantees."

"How much worse will it get before radical action is taken to stop this flood of crime?"

The first bullet was fired at dawn on a Wednesday morning, when police approached the inner-city ghetto, planning to pick up guns, drugs and wanted men.

One was later named as Ronald Young. The others were identified only by their noms de guerre, Che and Mad Dog."

"Evans filed suit for the refund of monies withheld during the years 2000 and 2001. Evans's suit was based almost entirely on the proper application of Section 861 of the Internal Revenue Code. The complaint, which can be read online at Evans' website, stated that he did not engage in any of the specific sources or activities that generate taxable income, which are detailed in federal statutes, and are found listed in the regulations under Section 861." ...

Richmond - the murder capital of Virginia (we had our 81st homicide this weekend) is one of two localities in the Commonwealth that has a gun law predating the 1987 preemption law, and was therefore grandfathered.

[Original Title: Consumers should be cautious about personal safety devices]

"Recent reports of attacks around Kansas University's campus have led some parents to buy protection for their daughters."

"I looked into what nonlethal personal safety devices are legal to carry for protection."

"Later, after doing research on personal safety devices, I had a lot of misgivings about all of them. They all seemed a little too dangerous."

"A few days later, it dawned on me Katy is already a black belt at using one of the best protection devices available."

Two Keaau Middle School students have been disciplined for bringing a pellet gun and a toy gun unto campus, bringing the number of such incidents at the school in the last year to four.

A 12-year-old boy was arrested after allegedly pointing the pellet pistol at two other students Thursday, Lt. James Kelly of the Police Department said. The boy faces two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening.

Also, a 13-year-old boy received a notice of violation from police for bringing a toy BB gun to the school Thursday in an unrelated incident, Kelly said.

Under the Gun-Free Schools Act, school districts must expel any student who brings a firearm to school for up to one year.

-------
Is a toy pistol now considered a "firearm" and a child bringing it to school a "terrorist"?

"The senior lot of the Pakistani police exposed itself to the height of embarrassment on an international forum, while failing to qualify the first phase of a quite easy-to-attempt written examination, recently conducted in Islamabad for getting them placed on lucrative positions with the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Kosovo."

"Deputy Inspector-General (Headquarters) of the Punjab Police, Talat Mahmood, was one of the glaring examples to this effect, sources said. Another couple of officers in the same rank with similar stars from Balochistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) have also failed to go through the same phase of selection process, they said."

But Sarah Brady says only these guys are competent enough to have guns.
