S. 659 Gun industry protection bill - Will this turn out to be a raw deal?
Submitted by: Anonymous

There are no comments on this story

"A string of other amendments would be no surprise because the anti-gun crowd is desperately trying to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat."

"The biggest victory for our foes – and the biggest defeat for gun rights – would be reenactment of the Clinton Gun Ban, which Sen. Feinstein is determined to achieve."

"If the ban on 'assault weapons' is attached to S. 659 in the Senate, and can't be stopped in the House, NRA-ILA will kill the bill – I'm told, because 'as important as industry protection is, it's not worth letting the ban continue.' Amen!"

"Schwarzenegger made few policy pronouncements, though he did vow to work with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., to reauthorize a federal assault weapons ban." ...

Strange that some self-pronounced politics "insiders" were claiming that Arnold was a "stealth" pro-gun candidate. Nothing stealthy about banning guns from law abiding citizens based on cosmetic features.

"Many in the gun owning, civil rights community are feeling rather confident right now that the misguided 1994 legislation will expire."

"I do NOT share that confidence. Here is why."

"What most seem to have missed during the current debate is that the House did NOT pass an AW Ban BILL in 1994. The STAND-ALONE Assault Weapon Ban bill debated in the House was not enacted into law. So how did we get the ban?"

"It was attached as an AMENDMENT to that federal beast that gobbles up huge chunks of our money and liberty... the OMNIBUS BILL. In 1994 it was the OMNIBUS CRIME BILL."

Original title: Amazing the hurt that spit can inflict

"In Temple Terrace, three women and seven men practice shattering ankles and smashing testicles. Then, for good measure, they whip out knives."

" 'There's one cure for violence and that is what?' barks David Overstreet, their leader."

" 'More violence,' they shout."

"Overstreet, 42, nods approval."

"Weeknights, he [Overstreet] teaches haganah, a martial art born of Israeli commandos."

"Haganah - the Hebrew word for 'defense' - is self-defense that carries a grudge, self-defense on steroids, dirty and below the belt, with elbows in throats, fingers in eyes and shins in groins, aggressive and predatory."

Meanwhile the vast majority of assailants flee at the mere sight of an armed victim.
 

Gunning for gun control

"Many Democratic Party leaders blame Al Gore's tough stance on gun control for his loss of a few key states in the 2000 presidential race. To avoid a repeat in 2004, some candidates are avoiding the party's long-held view that non-hunting guns need more control." ...

"No doubt any candidate who differs with the views of the National Rifle Association must think twice about supporting various gun-control measures before Congress." ...

"Top Democratic candidates, however, risk losing support from blacks and other elements of their liberal base by evading the party's past commitments to reducing violent crime through gun-control measures that don't constrain hunting."

"Sen. John Kerry charged that Democratic presidential rival Howard Dean has a history of pandering to the gun lobby by opposing a ban on assault weapons."

"Mr. Dean said Mr. Kerry was distorting positions he took while running for governor of Vermont."

"On Friday Mr. Kerry, campaigning in central Iowa, passed around National Rifle Association questionnaires that his rival had filled out in 1992 and 1994 as evidence. Mr. Kerry said that Mr. Dean used those questionnaires to get the backing of the powerful NRA while Congress was trying to pass the assault weapons ban."
 

PA: Girls pummel man who exposed himself

"A man described by authorities as a known sexual predator was chased through the streets of South Philadelphia by an angry crowd of Catholic high school girls, who kicked and punched him after he was tackled by neighbors, police said Friday."

"Rudy Susanto, 25, who had exposed himself to teen-age girls on as many as seven occasions outside St. Maria Goretti School, struck again on Thursday just as students were being dismissed, police said."

-------
The issue of self defense in this case is very interesting. St. Maria Goretti was a twelve-year-old girl who refused a twenty-year-old pervert's sexual demands, because she had a high regard for her chastity. The pervert got angry and stabbed her to death. She forgave her attacker before she died. These girls certainly didn't consider it a virtue to forgive, but rather took their safety into their own hands.

"Guns in the house -- any house -- present a mighty temptation to youngsters. Simply put, if they are available, no matter how many stern admonitions to 'don't touch them' have been offered or how much instruction in gun safety has been provided, they present a real and present danger." ...

"The proper way to address this matter does not lie in the stereotypical liberal's anti-Second Amendment outlook of 'no guns.' Instead, it comes from a combination of proper emphasis on gun safety, stressing proper gun handling and in ensuring that guns kept at home are safe and secure."

"You might not realize it, but the man or woman sitting across from you in your favorite restaurant may have a handgun tucked underneath his or her jacket."

"Is this a cause for concern? Or will the threat of a potential victim legally carrying a concealed firearm be enough to deter a criminal from committing an act of violence?"

"Ultimately, whether or not the Personal Protection Act (Senate Bill 214) presently coasting through the Republican-controlled Legislature passes — as most analysts predict it could — the question that begs to be answered is whether or not allowing men and women to 'strap' will make Wisconsin a safer place."

"Before Wednesday night, it was easy to look at Storer and Wilson and discern which was the model citizen and which the lawbreaker."

"Wilson, by contrast, the attacker, had charges on his record for robbery with a weapon, carrying a concealed firearm, and performing a lewd and lascivious act on a child."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A Beaumont man refused to become the next victim of another home invasion.

Here is a copy of the press release issued to KBTV 4 by Beaumont police:


Thursday night around 11:30 p.m., officers were called to a home in the 4000 block of Woodlawn in reference to a home invasion robbery. The two residents of the home were not injured. The female inside the home told police she heard a knock at the back door. After several attempts to see and hear who was outside, the female cracked the door open. The door was forced open by two black male suspects who were armed with handguns. The female was forced to the floor by one of the men. He placed the gun to her head and demanded her purse. She was able to crawl down the hallway and yell for her husband. Her husband opened the bedroom door, and saw what was going on. He retrieved a 12 gauge shotgun and exited the bedroom. When the suspects saw the shotgun THEY RAN OUT THE BACK DOOR. After the husband locked the door, he thought that he saw someone back at the door through the window. Thinking that the attackers had returned, he fired one round at the window. No one was injured. The suspects were able to get away. They are described as:

Suspect #1 - Black male, 5`10", stocky build

Suspect #2 - Black male, 5`10", stocky build with orange bandana over face.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The statistics are frightening---one in five women will be raped in her lifetime. But women right here at home are learning how to protect themselves.

Statistics show that last year 187 people reported being sexually assaulted in Evansville, and half of those attackers fled when the victim resisted.

A sexual assault occurs in the U.S. every six seconds. One in four college women are victims.

A self-defense tactics course, like the one taught at the Women's Hospital in Newburgh, is a way of providing information to women to help keep them from becoming another statistic.

These defense strategies are also a source of boosting self-confidence, sharpening the mind, protecting the body and boosting the spirit.

The Women's Hospital is hoping to spark some interest in a six-week self-defense course.
