"'If you look at what has been attempted and done to weaken common-sense measures to prevent gun violence, particularly over the past six years, it is obvious that the gun pushers have way too much influence over federal law enforcement policy,' Helmke said." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Keeping guns out of the hands of criminals is the goal of two bills being introduced by Assemblymembers Sam Hoyt and Crystal Peoples.

The first would prevent the sale of guns at pawn shops; the second would call for a study of minimum security standards at any location where guns are sold.

The bills are spurred in part by the theft of guns during the search for fugitive Ralph Phillips as well as the thefts of guns from a city pawn shop during the storm two weeks ago.

"'I think voters need an opportunity to vote for freedom, and I don't think that the Republican and Democratic parties generally support the idea of freedom,' he said." ...

"If Warner is elected, his priorities would include enforcing the Second Amendment, which guarantees the right to bear arms ... and strengthening safeguards against the state's use of eminent domain."

"Gov. Jon Corzine, a long-time opponent of the state's black bear hunts, is hoping to prevent this year's six-day season by not signing off on a key measure that regulates hunting and fishing in New Jersey, two administration officials said last night."

"The officials said Corzine expects his actions will trigger lawsuits from sporting groups that have sued in the past to preserve the hunts."

"This year's hunt is scheduled to begin Dec. 4, and would be the state's third since 2003. That hunt was New Jersey's first in more than 30 years and was designed to curb a burgeoning black bear population, mainly in the northwestern part of the state." ...

"When David Stern suggested NBA players might want to consider leaving their guns at home, the commissioner overlooked a few things."

"Are nunchucks and knives still OK? Where does he stand on flammable liquids and Samurai swords? How about fireworks? The notion of players walking around with any of these is, of course, ridiculous. But so, too, is Stern having to remind grown men to use their brains. Guns were never meant to be accessories, and toting one in public - especially to a nightclub or other alcohol-fuelled spot - is nothing more than an invitation for trouble."

"Unless it's Shaquille O'Neal getting a head start on his second career in law enforcement, leave the weapons at home." ...
