... "And it can't be said that Cavanaugh, known as 'Waco Jim' in some circles for his participation in the Branch Davidian horror, is a disinterested party. But read his own words, and decide for yourself how credible a spokesman you think he is, and whether or not you choose to accept what he tells us at face value." ...

'What I did doesn’t deserve a life sentence'

... Since there is no way to check out his story, this column can only rely on his terse version. There was an 'accusation' to which he took a plea agreement only because he apparently believed at the time that when his non-jail sentence was up, he could have his rights to own and possess firearms restored, and he wanted to get through the divorce and get on with his life. Somewhere in the interim, he explained, Colorado statute changed and when he went to apply for rights restoration, he was told by the court, 'Too bad, the law is changed, you’re out of luck.'" ...

"After rounds of meetings and phone calls, the city of Phoenix, perhaps prophetically on Election Day, Tue., Nov. 2, passed final judgment and decided that censorship of our bus-stop advertisements would remain final. 'Educate Your Kids' with the big red 'Guns Save Lives' heart, which they tore down more than a week ago, were deemed unacceptable and would stay down. They blamed CBS Outdoor with the 'error' for having put them up." ...

"During an angry tirade over Democrat election losses, the host of the new MSNBC political show, 'The Last Word,' blurted out that he's a 'socialist,' while blasting colleagues for hiding behind less radical labels such as 'liberal' or 'progressive.'" ...

"During his testy exchange, O'Donnell also revealed his agenda to 'ban all guns in America.'" ...

"The story of a female grad student who aspires to do refugee work with children in war torn countries, who is a daughter, a girlfriend, a friend, and is also a member of the local militia, might sound strange to most. Once you understand the truth about militias, my life doesn’t seem strange at all."

"Deer season is upon us. It’s a time to not just scout the woods, but to make sure the harvesting tool is ready to do its job. Is your huntin’ gun sighted in? If you’re using new ammo, you HAVE proven it out, right?"

"Why are these concepts in the forefront of my mind, you ask? Well, the last weekend in October I competed in the Georgia State IDPA championships using a proven-reliable Wilson Combat .45 pistol, and came in last in Master class, due in large part to loading from a new case of match-grade ammo that had just come in from a reputable commercial reloader ..." ...

Gun Safety and Kids: 30 Child Gun Deaths Per Day in U.S.
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"As many as one-half of American households have a gun, and each day, nearly 30 children are injured or killed by firearms in the United States - most from guns owned by the child's family or friends."

"In August 2010, the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health asked 1,621 parents about gun ownership and if they have talked about gun safety with their children."

"... Of parents with guns in their homes, 82 percent said they have discussed gun safety with their children — most within the past year. In contrast, only 48 percent of parents without guns in their household have ever discussed gun safety with their children." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: If you actually dig into the CDC's numbers, the number of children (0 to 13 years old) accidentally killed or injured with a firearm is somewhat less than 1.6 per day, or less than a dozen per week. Tragic, yes, but distinctly less of an issue than the 15 children per week who die in accidentally drownings.

"Editor's Note: The following piece was submitted by BFA volunteer Tim Inwood on October 24. Pressing election-related news prevented it from being published earlier, but it is certainly impressive to see how clear Inwood's crystal ball was. As you read the following, consider this election night quote from Florida Senator-elect Marco Rubio: 'We make a grave mistake if we believe that tonight these results are somehow an embrace of the Republican Party. What they are is a second chance, a second chance for Republicans to be what they said they were going to be, not so long ago.'" ...

... "Last spring, when the Ohio Senate passed SB239 and SB247, we tried to get these bills immediately passed by the Ohio House of Representatives. Unfortunately, we were not successful."

"Part of that failure involved leadership from the House and Senate agreeing that they would cooperate in bringing these bills to a timely vote. The Senate took too long to pass the bills. Now we are in the 'lame duck' session with time running out for the House to act on their promise to pass the bills. They must act now."

"Simply put, if you cannot spare time to call and email 1.) your representative and 2.) Speaker of the House Budish on Tuesday, November 9, 2010, this vote is not going to happen." ...

"It's a policy used by police departments in major cities across the United States. It's also a legal practice under a 1986 Supreme Court decision to establish 'reasonable suspicion' as a standard lower than the necessary 'probable cause' to justify arrest."

PA: Stop-and-frisk should be stopped and questioned

"THE KEY to controlling gun violence is to reduce the carrying of guns. The key to reduced carrying is the deterrent effect of getting caught with a gun and having it confiscated. And the key to creating that deterrent is widespread use of the police technique known as 'stop-question-and frisk.'"

"These words appear on Page 6 of a 150-page briefing book by mayoral candidate Michael Nutter, so it's fair to call stop-and-frisk one of his signature policies."

"Now, in light of a class-action lawsuit filed last week, and ongoing concerns about this controversial practice, it's natural to ask: How many guns have been confiscated as a result of the revved-up strategy of stopping citizens and frisking them?" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The essence of constitutionalism in a democracy is not merely to shape and condition the nature of majorities, but also to stipulate that certain things are impermissible, no matter how large and fervent a majority might want them. — George Will
