Straight Talk About 'Assault Weapons'– A 'Survival Guide' to the Expiration of the 1994 Ban is 12-page PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader required) intended for people who are 'on the fence' on the issue of the AWB... in other words, people who are generally not against gun ownership, but who 'draw the line' at these particular guns due to the fact that they have been misled on what the ban actually restricted."

"Last week, I received an e-mail from a site visitor asking, 'what sane, legitimate purpose is there in civil society for the use of assault weapons, which are designed strictly for assaulting enemy troops?'" ...
 

VIN SUPRYNOWICZ: Exposing our congressional rape enablers

"In a maneuver probably designed to force Democratic rape enablers to reveal themselves, the Republican leadership of the U.S. House on Wednesday passed a measure to repeal a District of Columbia self-defense ban which (because it disarmed law-abiding victims while leaving criminals armed) had made that city the nation's murder capital."

"There's a lot of shouting about how this means the District now has no restriction on the carry of firearms, open or concealed, by law-abiding citizens, just as the Founders guaranteed."

"... Actually -- even should the Senate go along and the president sign the measure, which isn't likely this year -- all that would be re-legalized is the use of firearms for self-defense in one's home, a far cry from District residents being 'allowed' to 'keep and bear arms' without 'infringement.'" ...

... "I'll let the experts explore the Freudian undertones between women and guns, but this male has identified four distinct stages, similar to those found in relationships between men and women. The first stage - fear and revulsion - is followed closely by curiosity and fascination. Third up is infatuation, the unbridled obsession with the physical and emotional exhilaration of shooting, particularly the feeling of empowerment it ignites. What I call the mature stage, the last stage, is marked by the self-confidence, freedom, security and peace of mind common to those who boldly step out of a world of fear, bogeymen, and stereotypes ruled by self-appointed guardians to create their own destiny, form their own opinions and think for themselves." ...

"I am sure not one of those people who fired off angry emails had ever heard of the Observer, let alone read the musings of a humble columnist every week. More likely that they had programmed their computers to roam the Internet and lock in on certain key words relating to anything smacking of limiting, controlling, or banning the private ownership of these diabolical engines of death." ...

"A professional hunter in Southern Austria inadvertently performed the longest, most realistic, environmental test on a rifle scope in history. A Kahles (pronounced kah-less) scope, lost in the high mountain region of the Austrian Alps in the late '70s was found recently in technically perfect working condition."

"In September, 1977, on a chamois stalk, a jaegermeister (professional hunter) from Carinthia climbed to the top of 'Kometeralpe', a 2,500-meter picturesque mountain. After shooting a chamois with his Mannlicher Luxus 6.5x57 topped with a Kahles Helia 6x42 riflescope, the jaegermeister rested his firearm against a boulder and ascended to where the game was taken. ..." ...

"An RCMP officer convicted of manslaughter for shooting a prisoner clung to his sobbing wife outside court Thursday and maintained he had done nothing wrong."

"'I just want to say that I will be tried by God and not by man,' said Const. Mike Ferguson. 'I’m innocent.'"

"Ferguson had originally been charged with second-degree murder, but after 13 hours of deliberations the nine-woman, three-man jury found him guilty of the lesser charge." ...

"Crown prosecutor Rick Saull suggested in his final argument that Ferguson fired his gun in a fit of rage."

"He said self-defence was not a credible option because evidence indicated Varley was likely bent over, clutching his abdomen, when he was shot in the head." [emphasis added] ...

"The case of a veteran RCMP officer who went to jail for killing an unruly prisoner who grabbed at his gun may prompt some policy changes at the force, a Crown prosecutor said yesterday. 'Probably a good change would be that there be a very clear policy for RCMP officers when you're arresting a prisoner, to secure your weapon in a vault or something like that - for the benefit of the prisoner and the police officer,' said Rick Saull."

"He was speaking outside Court of Queen's Bench after a sentencing date was set for RCMP Const. Mike Ferguson. After two previous trials ended with deadlocked juries, a third jury found him guilty Thursday of manslaughter." ...

And so the spin begins. It wasn't a cop shooting someone in a fit of rage (as the jury found) it was a "policy" problem.

"It seemed simple enough. Suburban Falls Church, Va., officials recently drafted a policy that would require city workers to call 911 immediately if anyone stepped onto city property carrying a gun. Police who responded would check to see whether the gun was properly licensed and report their findings to city officials."

"With all seven council members and many residents of this little city inside the Capital Beltway firmly in the anti-gun camp, only a few officials expected any problems with the procedures."

"But if the intent was to discourage gun toting in the city, the effort has so far backfired."

"About 30 people, pistols strapped to their hips, strode into the council's meeting this week protesting the policy and warning that it violates their right to bear arms - and possibly state laws, as well." ...

"Monday's brutal murder of an unarmed Illinois Capitol security officer by a shotgun-wielding killer proves that restrictive gun laws like those in the Prairie State cannot stop determined criminals, and never have, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today."

"'If the Draconian gun laws in Illinois worked,' said CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron, 'then security guard William Wozniak would still be alive. Instead, the anti-gun philosophy has so permeated politics in Illinois that cold-blooded killers can stroll right up to the Capitol with a shotgun, while security guards are expected to perform their duty unarmed.'" ...

Police in Portland collected 93 firearms today in a voluntary hand-in sponsored by doctors and groups opposed to gun violence.

The group Ceasefire Oregon Education Foundation says about an equal number of long-barrel and handguns were turned in.

One man turned in a Chinese SKS assault rifle, saying he feared he could not store it safely and that it might wind up in the wrong hands.

Guns turned into the program are destroyed.

The collection marks the eleventh year the group has collected guns in Portland.

"The official policy of Londonderry High School is to 'encourage students to express themselves' but administrators have a muddle-headed view of what is appropriate expression."

"The demeaning treatment of Lancer student Blake Douglass by Superintendent Nathan Greenberg and Principal James Elefante attests to their muddle-headedness."

"The controversy stems from a photograph of a smiling Blake leaning with his left elbow on his knee and his right hand holding the barrel of his shotgun, which is broken open at the breach and straddles his right shoulder."

"The photograph was taken professionally to depict Blake proudly expressing himself as a sportsman."

"Yet, when Blake submitted the picture for inclusion in the Londonderry High yearbook, as students routinely do, the administration went bonkers." ...

Murray is often joined by her daughter, Linda Rall, and Rall's boyfriend, Windy Skillin, each using a gun to fire at the sheet metal propped up by tires, which serves as their target."

"The handguns cracked in sequence along the firing line as Pat Goodale tapped each shooter on the back. On cue from the firearms instructor, each let loose a rapid two- or three-shot volley from a handgun held firmly at the hip."

"Cary Allen felt a muzzle blast hit her face as the man standing next to her fired. It was too much for the 28-year-old Billings woman; she stepped back and off the line."

"After a few minutes, Allen gathered her nerves and rejoined the other six shooters. With some encouragement and instruction from Goodale, Allen was back to shooting her borrowed 9mm Glock semiautomatic."
