"It may be a cliche, but it is true: This letter is written not in anger, but in sorrow and concern. It is written to our friends about NRA staff who, tragically, have taken a course which, we believe, would be disastrous for the Second Amendment and the pro-gun movement."

"Two of us are Life Members of the NRA -- one of whom was an NRA board member for over ten years. And our legislative counsel was a paid consultant for the NRA."

"So we certainly have no animus against the NRA staff, much less our wonderful friends who are NRA members." ...

"But those who staff the NRA, without consulting the membership, have now made a series of strange and dangerous alliances with the likes of Chuck Schumer, Carolyn McCarthy, and Pat Leahy. And we believe that, if allowed to continue, this will produce anti-gun policies which the NRA staff will bitterly regret." ...
 

"Assault weapons" vs. "Patrol rifles"

"Not long ago, I mentioned an editorial in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that advocated a new ban on so-called 'assault weapons.' ..."

"... I failed to spot the verbal gymnastics (despite their decided lack of subtlety) used a bit earlier in the editorial:"

"Understandably, officers in more South Florida police agencies have been arming themselves — at their own expense — with patrol rifles to be on more even footing with criminals — particularly gangs — they encounter."
"Suddenly, what had been an 'assault weapon' (or the even less honest use of the term 'assault rifle') has become a 'patrol rifle'--presumably because it is now in the hands of a police officer." ...

"Principle is a terrible thing, because it demands not what is convenient but what is right. It is hard to read the Second Amendment and not honestly conclude that the Framers intended gun ownership to be an individual right. ..." ...

"The White House would like to see Michael Mukasey confirmed as attorney general before the Senate's October recess. Until now, the focus has been on Mukasey's reading of the tradeoff between civil liberties and national security — involving, for example, the Patriot Act, warrantless surveillance and detainee policies. Those are indeed important inquiries. But there's another critical issue that triggers strong sentiment throughout the country on which a Mukasey Justice Department might play a key role. Mr. Mukasey, where do you stand on the right to keep and bear arms?" ...

"We harbor a great deal of sympathy for 21-year-old David Fielding, the VCU art student who was working at the Baskin-Robbins on Forest Hill Avenue in early September when a career criminal walked in with a gun to rob the place -- only three weeks after another robbery at the site. So do a lot of other people who question the decision by Richmond Commonwealth's Attorney Michael Herring to seek a charge against Fielding of reckless discharge of a firearm."

"It's easy in the calm of peaceful surroundings to second-guess Fielding's heat-of-the-moment decision to pursue the robber as he fled, and to fire shots outside the store. ..." ...

"A Seminole deputy advised her to get a protective court order. We all know how effective they are against the criminally obsessed."

"The deputy also would send her complaint to the State Attorney's Office, which is akin to tossing it into the Grand Canyon."

"Deep inside Washington's police headquarters is a library like few others, with floor-to-ceiling racks displaying 1,700 guns, from a World War II-era rifle with bayonet to rows of pocket-size revolvers, automatic pistols and big six-shooters that look straight out of the Wild West."

"Most of the guns ... were seized during crimes under a 31-year-old law in the nation's capital that bars handgun ownership for nearly everyone except law enforcement — a measure police have praised as a valuable tool against violence."

"But that ban is now in jeopardy. The law was struck down by a federal appeals court this year, and now the District of Columbia is asking the Supreme Court to weigh in. Both sides of the gun debate are apprehensive." ...

"All in all, it doesn't sound like too bad of a proposal, unless you actually take into account the behavior of college students and the reality of guns and their owners. The people who want to carry guns on campus may want to do so in order to protect themselves, but what this really means is that they will be using them, or tempted to, out of fear. A walk to your car alone at night could turn into something deadly if someone else walking nearby suspects you have less than noble intentions. ..." ...

"Coburn, R-Okla., has single-handedly blocked a Senate vote on a bill designed to fix flaws in a database used by gun dealers to check the backgrounds of people trying to buy firearms. The measure breezed through the House this summer, but has been stalled for months in the Senate, partly because of Coburn's use of a controversial procedure known as a 'hold.'"

"Asked why police fired so many shots at the dog, Insp Spence said shooting at moving things in real life was different to shooting at targets at the range."
