Going ballistic over fingerprinting
Submitted by: P. Jones

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

 
Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence says:

... "Sadly, the mere mention of 'fingerprinting' and 'gun' in the same sentence is enough to drive the gun lobby ballistic. The most ardent gun-lobby supporters have sprung into action, citing every conceivable reason that we shouldn't help police solve crimes with ballistic fingerprinting. Along the way, they've generated a few misconceptions that we'd like to set straight." ...

"...the gun lobby asserts that criminals could very easily alter a gun barrel with a simple nail file. This is questionable - individual bullets and shell casings are 'fingerprinted' at several different points. That means altering parts of a gun is highly unlikely to prevent a match." ...

"A gun owner's privacy doesn't enter the picture at all - unless that owner pulled the trigger." ...

"Federal prosecutors said they also found two boxes of .338-caliber cartridges in the back of the blue Chevrolet Caprice allegedly used in the shootings."

"Guns experts said there's no way the Bushmaster rifle could handle a .338-cartridge. They say the .338 is just too powerful -- four times more powerful than the .223 and used primarily for big-game hunting."

"Investigators said it raises the question: Did the sniper suspects have other guns or were they planning on getting other guns?" ...

See his act in these cities:

"And, again as usual, the stakes are very high. Any decision in the case would affect colleges and universities across the country."

"Actually, two University of Michigan cases have reached the Supreme Court. In one, a federal appeals court upheld the Law School's use of racial preferences in admissions policy to increase the number of minority students."

"In the other, a federal judge upheld the use of racial preferences in the general admissions policy of the university as a whole. The challengers in the second case are asking the Supreme Court to review the dispute at once, despite the fact that an appeals court has not yet ruled on the matter."

"The challengers in both cases are white applicants who were denied admission to the Law School or the university, but who would have been admitted had they been members of a racial minority." ...

"The challengers cite the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment -- equal protection under the law -- and Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which bans discrimination based on 'race, color or national origin.' " ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
