... "And then there are the contradictory and hypocritical attitudes regularly displayed toward criminals on one side of the law versus law-abiding gun owners and police on the other. Because liberals tend to view criminals as "basically good," they like to explain away anti-social behavior as society's fault. Conversely, since they believe that guns, not people, do, in fact, kill people, they distrust the motives and behavior of anyone who professes to want to own or use a firearm for peaceful, constructive reasons."

"The latest example of this kind of PC stupidity is the policy of disarming campus police officers at three out of the four University of Nebraska campuses. ..." ...

"Ceasefire New Jersey identifies itself as 'a statewide coalition devoted to reducing gun violence.' It further says it has 'no interest in restricting the responsible use of legitimate hunting and sporting weapons.'

"But if you continue to read its Web site, you will find it supports legislation that would impose even more restrictions on law-abiding firearms owners while -- once again -- doing nothing to prevent gun violence by criminals."

"Ceasefire also wants to ban .50-caliber hunting rifles. ... But the .50-caliber rifle most overwhelmingly used in this state is a muzzle-loader used for deer hunting. To make things more comical, Ceasefire calls this old firearm a 'sniper rifle.' ..." ...

"A housekeeping bill passed by the 2003 Legislature inadvertently wiped out a tool used by police to keep guns out of the hands of people considered dangerous."

"The legislative mishap was discovered this fall, when the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled that the Washington County sheriff had no right to confiscate the gun permit of Tom Bates, of Raleigh Hills, for making threats to state officials and phone company employees."

"The judge ruled, moreover, that not only had Sheriff Rob Gordon erred when he took away Bates' permit, but that no Oregon sheriff can use the 'danger to self or others' revocation clause to take away the gun permits of Oregonians in the future." ...

"Police departments nationwide are scaling back long-standing policies requiring officers to carry their weapons around the clock, and a civil rights lawsuit brought by the mother of a slain black officer could hasten the trend."

"So-called 'always armed, always on duty' policies require officers to respond to crimes even when they're not working, and keep their guns with them at all times. ..." ...

"The International Association of Chiefs of Police has called 'always on duty' policies a costly tradition. The group, which has more than 20,000 members, recommends that off-duty officers who witness a crime call for assistance rather than pulling a weapon." [emphasis added] ...

"[Shasta County Superior Court Judge William] Gallagher, who noted that Dean was acquitted of manslaughter and that it was determined at trial that Dean was justified in taking down and arresting Philapandeth, said Dean crossed the line when he began repeatedly striking him with a pepper spray canister in order to unnecessarily gain his total submission."

"In the Aug. 10 article 'Deputy pleads guilty to federal felony,' about Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Leo Driving Hawk pleading guilty to a federal felony, MCSO continued to employ Driving Hawk in its internal affairs department."

"Additionally, the article quotes MCSO Public Information Officer Lt.

"Yes is cliché, but it’s true. But how much of a difference does your effort to vote really make?"

"Consider Buckeye Firearms endorsee Paul Blevins. This year he was up for re-election of the Elyria city council, ward 4."

"Paul was very outspoken and influential in preventing the city council from adopting a gun ban similar to what the City of Clyde adopted in 2004. On election night a few weeks ago, Paul lost by 13 votes (1140-1127). But wait, there were still 36 absentee votes, and 20 provisional ballots to cast." ...

UT: U firearms policy is ineffective

FULL TEXT BELOW:

An air pistol intramural-sports turkey shoot anywhere on the U campus is newsworthy for several reasons ("Top gun," Nov. 23)-not the least of which is how it belies the illegal and yet-to-be-retracted U policy against firearms.

As an activity that would violate this policy, was it more notable that the activity happened apparently without so much as a wink and a nod-or that the activity proved how absurdly easy it was to bring firearms on campus, regardless of the impotent policy?

Either way, congratulations to the intramural-sports department and Chronicle staffers, who considered the activity for what it was: legal, responsible and safe competition.

"Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney today signed legislation aimed at providing one clear definition of a loaded shotgun or rifle for the state's hunting enthusiasts. For years, two competing definitions have existed on the books, leaving law abiding gun owners wondering when and how they can enter or cross a public way with their firearms."

"'Today, we are simplifying the gun laws in Massachusetts,' Romney said. 'With this legislation, our hunters will know precisely what is expected of them.'

"By law, no person is permitted to carry a loaded rifle or shotgun on a public way, so hunters must unload their firearms if they encounter a roadway or other public thoroughfare while hunting." ...

"For years now Richard Daley, Mayor of Chicago has enjoyed a growing reputation among the political Leftists in this country. He has been one of the leading local and national proponents of 'victim disarmament' (he calls it gun control). Daley's rationale seems to be that if only the honest people would all just turn in their firearms then the gangbangers would not have to worry about shooting them when they committed robbery or mayhem because they would all know that none of the honest people had anything left to defend themselves with. Cuts down on the murder rate, you know." ...

"Under new guidelines passed last spring ... the definition of primitive weapons was changed from muzzle loaders to include certain rifles that can fire modern cartridges."

"The restrictions are that they be a single-shot, breech-loading rifle of at least .38 caliber with an exposed hammer. The rifle also must be of a design or a replication or reproduction of a kind or type of firearm first introduced prior to 1900."

"Archery rules were also changed to allow all hunters, with the purchase of a special permit, to use crossbows during all gun and primitive weapon seasons." ...
