The Epiphany of an Anti-Gunner

Original title: Brown: Allison Gets Her Gun (Almost)

"It was one of those issues that, for me, was completely black and white. No grey areas. I made my position clear to anyone who asked. I was a card-carrying member of Handgun Control, Inc, – a fact I am now ashamed to admit (hey, think they’ll give my money back if I ask?)." ...

"...I’m not sure which is more embarrassing – the ignorance I displayed in my previous attitude, or the speed at which I was convinced how wrong I was by someone I barely knew. Oh, I tried to put up a fight with the person who started all of this, but I found out quickly how truly unarmed I was. I found nothing on the Internet to support my arguments, and everything to support his."

"Gun-control laws didn't stop Gary Ridgway. Background checks did not prevent his killing spree. Waiting periods never interrupted his schedule." ...

"In all of these killings, there was one striking common denominator: Ridgway never used a gun." ...

"...today, in communities all over the nation, convicted sexual predators are being routinely placed in so-called 'halfway houses,' often without the knowledge of neighbors and at other times against the overwhelming objection of local residents and businesses."

"Ironically ...they are also supporting efforts to restrict your right to own and carry a firearm for your protection and the protection of your family." ...
 

The Assault Weapons Ban May Be Bush's Undoing

"Don't be surprised in the coming months to see the Bush administration pushing for a renewal of the assault weapons ban by promoting it as an effective tool in our fight against terrorism. After all, such a ban would make it easier for law enforcement officers to break up terrorist organizations here in the United States. ..." ...

"Like most federal laws, the assault weapons ban was originally passed with the assumption that Americans are willing to sacrifice liberty for safety. This, of course, has been historically a safe assumption on the part of our elected officials in Washington. But Bush's position on the assault weapons ban may very well come back to haunt him when he seeks to reconnect with his conservative base in 2004."

Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
- George Santayana

"Unlike Michael Moore's crockumentary, Bowling for Columbine, Innocents Betrayed contains actual footage, photographs, and historic facts that demonstrates a definitive link between 'gun control', firearm confiscation, and genocide."



This is the introductory quote to the dramatic documentary, Innocents Betrayed, recently released by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

Unlike Michael Moore's crockumentary, Bowling for Columbine, Innocents Betrayed contains actual footage, photographs, and historic facts that demonstrates a definitive link between "gun control", firearm confiscation, and genocide.

"Experts say it's okay to have a gun in your home, if you follow some important safety guidelines."

" 'The old days of putting a gun on a top shelf of a closet, that's ridiculous now a days,' says Doug Brown with Lafayette Shooters. 'Children are curious. They are going to try to find it, unless you educate the child unless you make the gun completely safe.' "

"Several ways to make a gun safer is to keep it unloaded, in a gun case, with a trigger lock on it."

"After reaching several compromises on a concealed carry bill, Wisconsin lawmakers have hammered out a sensible package that Gov. Jim Doyle should sign, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today."

"CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron noted that the compromise bill addresses several concerns raised by concealed carry opponents. While the final bill is not ideal, he called it 'a reasonable first step,' and urged Gov. Doyle to sign it, or allow it to become law automatically. If Gov. Doyle vetoes the bill, Waldron expressed hopes that the Legislature would override."

"If there is one thing that is certain in the fight to preserve the Second Amendment, it is that the gun confiscation movement would prefer to 'divide and conquer' the various subsets of gun owners and their related specialties."

"For example, the appeal to elitism amongst trap and skeet club members, versus the more socially 'unacceptable' firearms uses (practical shooting, long-range big bore shooting, etc.) is a case in point."
 

The M-16 jamming debate continues

"On a quick reading of the story, I noticed that Miller said that he had grabbed his rifle when they got stuck in a shoot-it-out type situation. This means to me that Miller grabbed the standard-issue M-16 that has been Army and other American military branch issue since the Vietnam War."

"And that answered the question in just a couple minutes' time, since the M-16 has always had this reputation of crapping out through jams just when you need it to work in the very worst way. The stories of our guys being found dead in Vietnam after firefights with a hopelessly jammed M-16 are legion, and apparently the so-called fixes the military put in place early on have not remedied the basic problem -- what we have in the M-16 is a basically inferior design as far as inherent ability to function under adverse conditions."

"San Francisco district attorney candidate Kamala Harris on Tuesday seized on the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy on a Muni bus to claim that incumbent Terence Hallinan isn't doing enough to combat gun violence."

"Hallinan countered by saying Harris is exploiting a tragedy for political gain and claimed that she doesn't have her facts straight."

"Joined by community activists from Bayview-Hunters Point and the Mission District outside San Francisco's Hall of Justice, Harris said the district attorney should be leading the fight against what she calls a crisis of gun violence in the city."

"Believe it or not, but after years of racial tension, economic envy and mutual distrust, it took the Richmond City Council to finally bring this city together. Thanks to council’s performance, Richmonders of every race, creed and color agree: The City Council is a disaster.

The collection of incompetents, careerists and low-rent crooks who pretend to run the city have moved past tragedy (Chuck Richardson), through comedy (Sa’ad El-Amin) to municipal natural disaster. The City Council is no longer a laughable organization but a malignant organism, a boil to be lanced, a cancer to be excised." ...

"It is probably safe to say that every racial, ethnic, religious and special-interest group from the NRA to the NAACP cast a majority vote against Richmond’s current government. Mayor McCollum, Sen. Marsh, Rev. Hedgepeth, look around: There’s nobody on your team."

"A jury on Tuesday delivered a stunning verdict of not guilty in the murder case of cross-dressing New York millionaire Robert Durst."

"Durst was on trial for the shooting death of his 71-year-old neighbor, Morris Black, whose body was chopped up and thrown into Galveston Bay." ...

"But Fox News' senior judicial analyst Andrew P. Napolitano said that in one way, the verdict was not unexpected. 'Texas has the broadest self-defense principle in the union,' he said. 'This is a defense that rings true with Texans.' " ...

"But defense attorneys contended Black was shot accidentally while the two men struggled for a gun after Durst found his neighbor illegally in his apartment. The defense said prosecutors failed to show jurors any motive for the killing or disprove self-defense."

"I would think – silly me – that if I ordered a drug raid on my school, I would ask for a description of what would happen, so that I might be prepared, or maybe even ask for a different type of search if I didn’t like the default method. What we had here is failure to communicate."

"Police, on the other hand, have a sound and logical reason for what they did. Goose Creek police Lt. Dave Aarons said the guns were drawn as 'a matter of officer safety.' He said, 'I don't think it was an overreaction…Anytime you have qualified information regarding drugs and large amounts of money, there's a reasonable assumption weapons are involved.' "

"Makes sense. Now, let’s examine the inventory of drugs, guns and money confiscated in the sweep. What’s that you say? Nothing? They found nothing? In a high-school, where drugs are said to be a 'growing problem?' You found not one gram of pot, crack or anything? No guns? Nothing? We seem to have a significant intelligence problem here."

Three British Gurkha soldiers appeared before a court martial yesterday on charges relating to the death of a 14-year-old boy after a bar brawl in Belize two years ago.

Rifleman Durgahang Limbu, Rfn Yograj Rai and Rfn Ramesh Rai, all of the 2nd Gurkha Rifles, pleaded not guilty to charges of violent disorder. The trial, in Colchester, Essex, was adjourned and will reconvene in Belmopan, Belize, next Tuesday.

David Zabaneh was found severely injured after a brawl involving Gurkhas and other British soldiers - understood to include SAS - at Raul's Rose Garden nightclub in Belize in May 2001. He was flown to Florida for emergency brain treatment, but died in hospital.

"Over in Euroland the Euro-socialists are seriously going about establishing a real censorship not seen since Hitler's Third Reich; perhaps it's not a coincidence that in the UK, among certain conservative circles, the EU is often referred to as the Fourth Reich. The EU just passed an amendment to their Convention on Cybercrime that outlaws any speech these thought crime specialists deem as 'any written material, any image or any other representation of ideas or theories, which advocates, promotes or incites hatred, discrimination or violence, against any individual or group of individuals, based on race, colour, descent or national or ethnic origin, as well as religion if used as pretext for any of these factors.' If passed into law by the various national legislatures which comprise the EU, online books, such as Oriana Fallaci's The Rage and Pride, which is an honest and impassioned examination of Islamic immigration into the West or even The Bible, which is examined and reproduced extensively on the Web, could be deemed 'hate speech' by Muslims in France and homosexual activists in the UK respectively."

"To principled state and local peace officers:

I have walked in your shoes and confronted the dilemmas that you face. The majority of people understand that honor and decency guide the actions of most local officers. Citizens are also well aware of the dangers and sacrifices related to your vocation. You deserve our gratitude. However, consider well, the present direction of the law enforcement profession. Recognize the injury done to your family, neighbor, state, and nation as a result of the unconstitutional conduct by legislators, federal police agencies, courts, administrators, and an alarming number of fellow officers. Ultimately, it is you--the individual officer--that must judge right from wrong. Never enforce unconstitutional laws, or obey orders that are repugnant to your sense of justice. The liberties and welfare of the people are far more important than employment security. You must decide whether your loyalties are to the people of local communities and the Constitution or to federal bureaucrats and their police invasion forces. You have also sworn to uphold your State Constitution. The sovereignty of your State must be defended!" ...
