A Terrific Answer to Dave Kopel's Attack on Silveira (Blog)

"...By waiting we hurt our cause. Every day that a law prohibiting Arms is on the books is one more day that a judge will have to consider that the law was unchallenged. Know of any 30 year old laws that have been declared void for constitutional conflicts? The longer a law is on the books the harder it is to be negated. This can be as much due to a lack of challenges as it can be attributed to unsuccessful challenges. So by waiting we give the anti gun side time. Time is something they have an abundance of & it is to their advantage to run the clock down as much as possible."

"The only ones who are served by waiting are the gun prohibitionists & the NRA..."
 

Felons And Guns Revisited
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"The first misconception I see today is that most felons are violent. This simply is not true. In these days of mandatory sentencing guidelines, most criminals who did more than spit on the sidewalk or jaywalk are felons. Most drug possession charges are felonies. Most hot check charges are felonies. Most tax offenses are felonies. Most frauds are felonies. As a result, you have a huge group of felons today who are guilty of either unintentional or victimless crimes, and the majority are entirely non-violent. One of my closest friends today wrote some inadvertent hot checks thirty years ago, when she was all of seventeen. Today, she is an ordained minister who spends most of her time helping people. Nevertheless, she is branded as a felon forever - and forever barred from purchasing a firearm, although the State of Texas will generously permit her to possess a firearm in her home. And what firearm would that be? A gift that could get the giver in a lot of trouble? A firearm belonging to her spouse? Or perhaps a borrowed firearm? This is a recipe for disaster if I ever read one!"

"The U.S. Supreme Court has spoken on the Second Amendment and issues related to the constitutionally recognized right of individual citizens to keep and bear arms more times than most Americans might imagine, according to a new book entitled Supreme Court Gun Cases: Two Centuries of Gun Rights Revealed. One of the book's authors participated in a book forum discussion at the American Enterprise Institute Friday."

"Dr. Stephen Halbrook, an attorney who has represented the National Rifle Association (NRA) and won three pro-gun cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, said anyone looking to the past decisions of the Supreme Court to clarify the meaning of the Second Amendment is probably going to be disappointed."

"In a brief order signed by Chief Judge Mary M. Schroeder, the court said a majority of its unrecused active judge had agreed to have an en banc panel reconsider the April 24 decision in United States v. Arnett, 00-30189."

"Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.) scolded Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean for his friendly relations with the National Rifle Association during a Capitol Hill rally last week to drum up support for renewal -- and strengthening -- of the federal ban on assault weapons."

"While other speakers stuck to the subject of assault weapons, Kennedy assailed Dean, saying he was 'saddened' that one of his party's leading presidential candidates is 'pro-NRA.' He suggested that Dean has 'compromised his principles' as a physician by opposing stronger federal gun controls."

"Ben and Juanita Colvin, after years of government harassment and interference with their ranching operation, the confiscation of 62 head of their cattle at gunpoint, and the resulting shutting down of their ranching operation, recently sued the federal government for $30 million compensation under the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution. The Complaint, filed August 16 in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., alleges in part that the Federal government transferred the Colvin’s water and forage rights to the Bureau of Land Management and third parties; allowed 1,300 head of wild horses to trespass on Colvin’s grazing allotment; and threatened Mr. Colvin’s family and employees to prevent them from using their vested water rights and forage rights."

"Shadow Public Safety Minister Maxwell Burgess last night called for a gun amnesty in Bermuda.
Such an amnesty would allow those owning illegal firearms to turn them in to the authorities without any consequences."

"Mr. Burgess said there was a belief in the community that there were a large number of firearms on the Island. And he cited a recent incident where Police chased a man brandishing what appeared to be a firearm."

"Mr. Burgess was not deterred by a poor response to previous amnesties."

Bearing Arms vs Bare Arms
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"It is incredible to ponder how these two amendments, which are fundamental to freedom in this republic, have played out in politics. The First has been stretched, contorted and turned inside out to be used to dispute prayer in schools, the Pledge of Allegiance, displays of the Ten Commandments, Nativity scenes, books and busses for parochial schools and sundry other purposes. This has all been done with justification through the phrase 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion'. Incredibly, many of the very same forces that have taken the First Amendment to this extreme argue, in all seriousness, that laws restricting firearms are legal. But you can't have it both ways." ...

"While the citizens of nondiscretionary states may now enjoy seemingly unfettered rights to carry concealed handguns, they must also wrestle with some thorny but very important questions: Which areas are permitted and prohibited for concealed carry weapons? What constitutes justifiable use of a handgun for personal protection? May a handgun be used to protect other individuals? May it be used to protect property?"

" 'Star Spangled Ice Cream, the ice cream with a conservative flavor, is proud that Ted Nugent had endorsed our newest politically incorrect flavor, Gun Nut,' said company Vice President Richard Lessner. 'Ted Nugent is a great defender of the people's right to bear arms. We believe Gun Nut is a perfect compliment to the wild game recipes in Ted's best-selling cookbook, Kill It and Grill It.' "

"Star Spangled has partnered with Nugent and Gun Owners of America in the promotion of Gun Nut. The company is donating $1 from the sale of each quart of Gun Nut to the educational work of the Gun Owners Foundation Gun Safety Project.

"I was born in Exeter in 1940 and still live there. Before I was old enough to drive, I often rode my bicycle through downtown Exeter on the way to a place called Fort Rock to go target shooting. I would carry my .22 semi automatic 'assault rifle' slung over my shoulder and stop at Young's Hardware store on Water Street to get ammo for the terrorism I was about to inflict upon the soup can covers I had in my back pocket."

"Now, hardly a year goes by that some local legislator doesn't have a bill in Concord to try to keep me from even having that same rifle in my home. Tell me Massachusetts has not influenced us."

"A mistake as a youth in the 1950s could cost police Lt. David Johnson his job."

"An arson conviction in 1959 didn't keep Johnson from joining the force in 1966. He even disclosed the conviction when applying for the job."

"But since then, gun laws have changed and his felony record makes it illegal for him to carry a firearm. State police notified township officials after Johnson applied for access to a state computer network." ...

"He was put on unpaid leave Aug. 4 and forced to use up vacation days until his case is resolved in Bucks County Court. He has petitioned for relief from the state's Uniform Firearms Act."

"This week's shooting of a San Antonio police officer with a high-powered AK-47 highlights the issue."

"The shooter, a convicted felon, should not have had access to the gun." ...

" 'Adding more laws on the books, I don't believe is going to keep guns out of a person's hands that shouldn't have them,' Ken Slade of the San Antonio Rifle and Pistol Association says."

"But as Congress prepares to pass this new gun bill, the CDC said on Thursday after reviewing more than 50 studies on gun laws, that they can't provide conclusive evidence that gun laws actually reduce gun violence."

"The CDC says many more studies are needed to prove that."

Original title: Holden will ban concealed weapons in state buildings

"Missouri Gov. Bob Holden said Monday that he'll ban all concealed weapons in buildings owned or operated by the state."

"Holden vetoed legislation that would have allowed concealed weapons in Missouri, but the Missouri General Assembly overrode his veto in September. The concealed weapons law goes into effect on Saturday."

"Weapons are banned in state buildings, but the new law would have allowed them. Holden said he would declare emergency administrative rules prohibiting concealed weapons on property owned or operated by the state, as well as state buildings and those leased by the state."

"The ban doesn't apply to law enforcement officials."

"The Crime Suppression Division found that some of the 256 licensed gun shops formed the core of the illegal arms trade. These shops have supplied firearms to terrorists and armed rebels."

"The Crime Suppression Division's findings silenced the operators of gun shops and citizens who own guns after they rose up against Mr. Thaksin's earlier announcement to make Thailand firearms free within five to six years."

"New guidance from the General Medical Council (GMC), which weakens the doctor's duty of confidentiality to patients, comes after a spate of incidents which left nine people dead or injured last week."

"The outbreak of gun crime led to calls for urgent action. The GMC came under pressure from the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) more than a year ago after police were outraged when a surgeon removed a bullet from a patient and gave it to him as a memento. The patient then sought revenge on his assailant."

"Believe it or not I've not always been what most would consider a 'radical'. After 9-11 I was probably one of the biggest patriots around. I wrote an article not long after the tragedy of that day describing how that day's events had affected an ordinary Missouri family. I supported the President 100%. His courage made me glad that I had voted for him. I supported my government 100%. I would have picked up my gun and went to war if they had called upon me to do so at that time. So what has changed?"

"What has changed is that the government has used this tragedy to broaden its authority over the American people. Of course, it is claimed to be for our own 'protection'. But how can they protect us when they are now giving illegal aliens' driver's licenses, rewarding them for breaking the law? How can they protect us when they refuse to seal our borders? We have troops in over 100 countries scattered across this world yet we do not have enough to patrol our own borders?"
