Through the years, veterans have insured our freedom of religion, freedom of speech, the right to keep and bear arms and the pursuit of happiness."

"A Gallup poll showing the greatest decline of public confidence in law enforcement in ten years largely explains why a growing number of Americans are arming themselves for protection against criminals, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today." ...

"'In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, where thousands of Americans were left to fend for themselves in an environment of looting and more serious crime, the poll results are understandable,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. 'Americans witnessed on national television why it is so important for them to be able to take care of themselves, their families, and their property. They are buying firearms and learning how to use them.'"

"This is mostly about weapon systems that work, that don't work, and a grunt's eye view of the situation. I can only vouch for the integrity and identity of the person that sent this to me, but he received it from someone he went to school with, and I presume this would indicate that it is for real. I've edited some of the saltier language a bit. If you aren't interested in weapons, skim through for a discussion of the tactics and the bad guys..."

"A lot of armed people are running around who are too stupid, too dangerous or too hotheaded to own a firearm."

"If you favor more stringent gun laws, they're the people who come to mind: drug-addled stickup artists, dimwits who keep loaded weapons with kids in the house, bad-tempered drunks and psycho stalkers and cop-killers with nothing to lose."

"But there are less-celebrated people who could make a pretty good case in favor of responsible gun ownership. Susan Gaylord Buxton, the Arlington woman who shot and wounded a housebreaker early Wednesday, might give even the most ardent gun-control activist a moment's pause."

"They walk this beat everyday. They're armed. And at the first sign there might be a gun in school, administrators turn to them."

Finnish rifle and ammunition maker Sako announced Thursday it was recalling rifle cartridges of the calibre 308 Winchester made between 1990 and 1992.

According to the manufacturer, said the cartridges may have corrosion damage that could cause the cartridge case to fail when firing. Sako says the failure is not likely to break a weapon, but may cause a backward discharge of cordite gases.

"Justice Minister Irwin Cotler will table legislation to make prison terms mandatory for gun-toting criminals, but critics say the Liberals are making hollow promises to shed a soft-on-crime image in the runup to a federal election."

"Cotler, a former academic who admits he was skeptical of the effectiveness of mandatory minimum sentences, said yesterday the evidence is "inconclusive" when it comes to gun-related crimes."

"Imposing a fixed-minimum penalty would serve as a 'denunciation,' he said."

"'Mandatory minimums are sending a message to prospective offenders: You will go to jail without passing Go,' he said."

"M MAGINESS (Letters November 10), complains that MPs did not support the police requested/Tony Blair advocated 90 day bill, which he says the public wanted. For decades, the public wanted the return of capital punishment. Does he think MPs should therefore have voted for that?"

"Does he support the planned amnesty for all IRA terrorists now on the run, but possible trials and punishment for SAS and army personnel who may have shot terrorists 20 or 30 years ago? This is being tough on terror, isn't it?"

"Also, does he remember how 'the streets were to be made safe from gun crime' by banning target shooters' legal pistols? (Gun crime has increased ever since). ..."

"In 25 percent of Utah's domestic violence fatalities over three years, children either witnessed the deaths or were present in the home, according to a study released Thursday by the state Department of Health." ...

"The study is a second, more detailed examination of the nature of domestic violence deaths that occurred in Utah from 2000-2002 ..." ...

"...it was surprising how few of the victims had filed for a restraining order or had contact with a domestic violence shelter." ...

"Of those who were killed by an intimate partner, women were more than twice as likely to be killed than men. A gun was the weapon used in more than half of the deaths and a quarter of the suspects committed suicide after the killing."

"Being involved in whatever crime, and carrying a firearm, should not ever be the reason to indict a person for a more severe crime, if the firearm has not been a factor in carrying out the crime."

"The thought that one should be charged is tantamount to charging a person with possessing advanced knowledge in nuclear weapons design, while s/he happens to be arrested for speeding along a motorway."

"The fact of carriage of a firearm should not ever be deemed by anyone else as an inclination to do harm unto others, any more than possessing knowledge is an indicator of the same idea."

"They made the couple get onto their bed and then bound them tightly with gaffer tape."

CA: San Fran gun ban removes citizenry from natural rights

"San Francisco residents will now have a gun confiscation take place in April of 2006. The government will require all guns be handed in by then, and if they are not, you can bet the California gun registry will be utilized by the government to find out where these law-abiding citizens live and take the guns. Whatever ill-will comes to the residents of that city, I shed no tears, and hold no sympathy. Everyone who voted for the ban deserves exactly what they get in every way, shape or form. I sincerely hope they learn a lesson, but realistically they will continue their totalitarian ways. This is not just a tragedy for the residents of San Francisco, but it is an abomination to the principles this country was founded on."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Rifles, muskets, long-bows and hand-grenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon — so long as there is no answer to it — gives claws to the weak. — George Orwell
