Groups For and Against Guns Put Best Possible Spin on Election

"The midterm election may have been a referendum on the president, war, corruption, and scandal, but 'it does not translate into greater support for gun control at the grass roots level,' says a gun lobby group."

"'If anything, gun control was notable as a non-issue in this election,' said Gun Owners of America in a news release."

"A leading gun control group, however, says quite the contrary: 'In this election, the gun issue was in play, gun violence prevention groups won while the gun pushers lost, and there is now a shift in momentum on the issue of common-sense gun restrictions,' said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence." ...

"On Thursday, November 2, the American Constitution Society hosted a debate between Professor Mark Tushnet and historian Saul Cornell over the challenges and possibilities for progressive gun control policy." ...

"Cornell began by describing the high cost - in both dollars and lives - of gun violence in America, noting that approximately 30,000 Americans die each year as a result of gun violence and that direct medical costs alone constitute several billion dollars of spending per year. ..." ...

"Tushnet, on the other hand, showed less optimism about the possibility of making progress on the gun control issue and expressed concern that 'making a big deal about it' would be a fruitless use of time and energy." ...

Misguided mayors need to look to Castle Doctrine laws to curb crime (BFA)

"On Thursday October 26th a group of mayors gathered in Chicago to plot their strategy for getting guns off the streets, a continuation of Mayor Bloomberg’s efforts from April. While the gathering made headlines in USA Today, the details in the reporting made it clear this cluster of obtuse politicians are clueless about crime."

"The problem with crime is not guns, it is criminals. Anyone with a modicum of common sense knows this; unfortunately, common sense seems to be a fairly rare thing in this crowd of mayors. These mayors ... would be wiser to back something that would truly help deter crime. Promotion of Castle Doctrine laws and encouraging people to take responsibility for their own lives is exactly what they need to do. ..." ...

Mayor Larry Morissey is encouraging Rockford parents to ask a simple question, are there guns in the homes our kids play?

"PAX", a national non-profit organization has come to Rockford to shoot a public service announcement geared towards gun control and prevention.

The campaign will last for one year and is focusing on Rockford because statistics show more than 1-thousand kids here live in a home with a gun.
-------

KABA Note: According to the CDC's WISQARS website, between 1999 and 2003 293 children (13 and under) were accidentally killed with firearms, while 1.5 times that number (455) were accidentally poisoned and 14 times that many (4140) drowned. So what should parents be asking about?

"Instead of messing around with things like keeping trans fats away from our french fries, I have a suggestion for our local representatives in the state Assembly that might save some young lives now."

"Last week, cops in Holmdel caught a group of local boys with a replica handgun they planned to take on a camping trip with them. And according to a story in Greater Media's Independent, as the police officer was taking that young lad to the pokey, he spotted two more teens on the street with replica weapons."

"All of the boys were eventually charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, but they're lucky that's all that happened. They could have wound up dead." ...

"The thing about driving around with all the parts to build an assault rifle in the trunk of your car is that pretty soon you forget they’re in the trunk of your car. There’s no dashboard light for that, like there is for your seat belts or your door being ajar; they could just stay there forever and what could ever go wrong?"

"Then some guy stepped off the curb in a midblock crosswalk in downtown Santa Ana, and I was taken by surprise so I honked at him and swerved—instead of stopping, which would have been the Right Thing to Do. And then the cops I never even saw lit me up and pulled me over ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

I have just read a letter to the editor in the Oct. 26 issue regarding NRA endorsed candidates.

I may be wrong, but it appears as though he has a misconception as to the provisions of the Second Amendment. It does not give individuals the right to bear arms. This is a misconception promulgated by the NRA.

I suggest the writer visit the Park Rapids Library and carefully read the Second Amendment.

Bill Souther,

Crosslake

Submitter's Note: Mr. Souther is correct, the Second Amendment does not give us the right to keep and bear arms, it protects that pre-existing right. In theory, that is.

... "Guns can kill and save lives. The fact is, more guns in the hands of good citizens equals less crime."

"Look to our friends, the British, to see how not to decrease gun crime. After banning handguns for citizens and banning nearly all long guns, the gun crime rate in Britain went up — and not just a little bit, either."

"One scary fact is that the per capita burglary rate is higher in Britain than the United States, not lower. So-called hot prowls, where people are home when a house is burglarized, are much more common in Britain as well. Why? Because in Britain, the bad guys know that the homeowners aren't armed. Self-defense is not considered a reason to use a gun. ..." ...

"Lawyers for the 20-year-old man appealing his conviction for murdering a 68-year-old horse-breeder in Waterford say the dead man, in brandishing a knife, went beyond what the circumstance demanded."

"Anthony Barnes ... was convicted earlier this year of murdering Richard Forristal at his home after he and another man were caught burgling his house." ...

"[Mr Forristal] came upon Anthony Barnes and another man burgling his home ..."

"Barnes had claimed he was defending himself from a knife attack by Mr Forristal when he fatally stabbed him in the chest."

"His lawyers today, in appealing the murder conviction, say the dead man's attack on Barnes was unlawful." ...

Submitter's Note: Just so we are clear: Lawyers are saying that a 68-year-old man, confronting a 20-year-old burglar and his accomplice can't arm himself?
