"Gun owners would have you believe criminals only use stolen firearms in their endeavors."

"People on the other side of the gun control debate insist often every firearm must be licensed to prevent it from being used to break the law."

"Law en-forcement officials, however, maintain neither is really the case."

"To C.W. Quier, there isn't a better person than a well-trained gun owner."

"Quier, who owns Northern Oklahoma Shooting Center, said the eight-hour class necessary to obtain a concealed handgun permit in Oklahoma teaches gun owners to be more responsible and even-tempered."

"He said people who are armed must conduct themselves well because their guns give them the means to seriously injure or kill another individual."

This is a 23-page letter to the local AZ paper from Robert Stewart Flores Jr -- the man who killed three employees of Arizona University and then killed himself -- entitled, "Communication from the dead." He wrote the lengthy letter before he went on the shooting spree.

Be sure to go to the other links to see how the paper totally disregards what this man claims his motives were and skews them completely.
 

The church of the NRA

" 'You would get a far better understanding if you approached us as if you were approaching one of the great religions of the world,' Warren Cassidy, former executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, said some 20 years ago. It's definitely time for a clear separation of the NRA 'church' - read cult - and state."

"And when NRA President Charlton Heston, who cheerfully appeared at a gun rally in the midst of the Beltway sniper madness, inspires his supporters by saying his gun will be taken only from 'my cold, dead hands,' it's time for sane citizens to speak up." ...
-------
Amen, sister. Mr. Heston should have been holding up a banned firearm -- or at least a politically incorrect one. Something like, say, a Bushmaster .223 with a scope, an "enough capacity" magazine, and a folding tripod.

For political, if not humanitarian reasons, many are demanding the introduction and legal mandating of “personalized” weapons systems, i.e. firearms that “know” through some mechanism who is activating them, before they can be fired. Often, the public pressure for laws and studies is devoid of a greater practical or scientific context. This paper seeks to examine the (practical or not) path that firearms development may take should such pressures continue.
 

UK: New clues in hunt for trophy rapist

"Police are following up a number of 'very useful' leads in the hunt for a serial rapist stalking the Home Counties."

"One week ago, a 14-year-old girl was grabbed from behind and raped at knifepoint on a footpath near Collenswood School."

"Until he is caught, women in the Home Counties area have been warned not to wear headphones and walk alone in wooded areas."
-------
Be a good victim and don't fight... You don't want to "escalate the violence." [And definitely avoid areas that the State has designated as likely hunting grounds for your dignity -- those areas are now given over to predators.]

"Delaware Family Court judges grant more than 1,800 protection orders to battered women and men annually, but for three recent homicide victims - Lettie Lyons, Stacey Dawkins and Julie Marie Gallegos - the orders apparently were not enough."

"Domestic violence experts insist such orders are useful tools that must be coupled with criminal prosecutions, safety plans and temporary shelters to be most effective. Even then, they said, they aren't foolproof."

How about a firearm for self-defense? The concept of "temporary shelters" for people who've been threatened basically tells the person threatened to live in fear. On the other hand, a nice .45 or .357 loaded with a meaty self-defense round......

WA: Four felony charges are filed against Seattle police officer

"When FBI agents arrested Seattle police Officer Steve Slaughter last week and accused him of stealing heroin from drug dealers while on duty, he asked to remove his uniform shirt in order to 'not dishonor the Police Department any further.' " [Sure. And here's a cyanide pill, in case you'd like to save the taxpayers you've been deceiving a lot of money.]

"So testified FBI Special Agent Maria Foster yesterday afternoon in U.S. District Court as Slaughter sat silently with downcast eyes and heard four federal felony charges lodged against him."

"U.S. Magistrate Judge Monica Benton found there is probable cause to charge Slaughter with possession of heroin, intent to distribute that heroin and extortion. As Benton announced her decision, she called the extortion charge even 'more alarming and more disturbing' than the others because it involved the threatened use of force while acting as a police officer." ...

CLUE:

"The threatened use of force while acting as a police officer" is exactly what a gun owner feels when he or she encounters a police officer while carrying a firearm in contradiction to an unConstitutional gun law -- as happens in nearly every state in this country. Accurate assessment by the judge; we see it every day, all across America -- aimed at people who have the gumption to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

"The president of the National Coalition for Gun Control says some revolvers should be included in a total ban on semi-automatic hand guns." ...

"Samantha Lee ...says semi-automatics are a first step in the battle because of their firepower and quick firing rate."

" 'For now we're actually concentrating on the most lethal in terms of velocity and magazine capacity, which is the semi-automatic hand guns,' she said."

"Some revolvers do actually fall into the semi-automatic category."

CLUE:

Semi-automatic loading mechanisms on handguns do not increase projectile velocity. If anything, muzzle velocity is slightly reduced in a semi-auto, as a result of the recoil's use of some of the energy to eject the empty shell casing and reload the weapon. This anti-gun fanatic -- like so many of her kind -- doesn't have the faintest idea what she's talking about; she's merely using buzz words to scare equally ignorant sheep who listen to her whining.

QUESTION:

What shall we do about the widespread proliferation of "semi-automatic revolvers"?

"Their deaths came only months after the officer had gone to his wife's office and assaulted her. He kicked her, punched her and pulled out wads of her hair while brandishing his gun." ...

"The officer was not charged. Instead, he spoke with a counselor and after a week was returned to duty." ...

"He does not propose suing mom-and-pop restaurants because it's not practical (money-wise) or effective (for producing big changes)."

"But could we sue gun companies? Alcohol manufacturers? Banzhaf says it's all fair game; some economic theory would suggest such suits would be beneficial to society. They would cause the prices of certain products to rise, forcing those who buy them to pay for the crime and accidents that inevitably occur." ...

"A man attempting to catch a robbery suspect was shot to death early Sunday morning by a police officer who mistook him for an accomplice in the crime."

"The officer was arrested on a charge of unpremeditated homicide. Police officials said monetary compensation would be offered to the victim's family. The robbery suspect was shot in the back and inner thigh, but his life is not in danger." ...

Sounds like LAPD -- only they don't usually get arrested and charged in such cases.

... "Not only is this organization [Congress] as a whole gutless, the members are also ignorant of their duties - their responsibility to the Constitution and to the people of this country. Make no mistake - their ignorance and unwillingness to stand up to forces that strive to control them do not bode well either for freedom or the defense of our people and our country." ...

This is likely a direct result of the Montana Shooting Sports Association's recent calls to have activists attend Sen. Baucus' rallies to buttonhole him on the question of whether or not the so-called "assault weapons" ban should expire. Montana gun owners are encouraged to keep a copy of the full text of this article -- to use as a club in case the guy wins reelection and then turns on us.
-------
"U.S. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., says two federal gun-control laws should be allowed to expire in 2004, according to Bill Lombardi, Baucus' spokesman in Helena."

"One, the Brady Act, requires background checks of gun buyers; the other bans the manufacture and sale of certain semiautomatic firearms, and also bans ammunition magazines containing more than 10 rounds. The laws 'sunset' after 10 years unless Congress extends them."

" 'Max thinks both laws should sunset,' Lombardi said in a telephone interview Friday." ...

"Howell supports ending the state income tax -- Question 1 on this year's ballot -- repealing every anti-gun law on the books in Massachusetts, and exposing the 'fatally flawed, wasteful and destructive' big government that is now the state government. She says the major party candidates represent more laws, more government programs and more government." ...

ORIGINAL TITLE: "Gun show is a lesson in history"
-------
"...the approximately 85 gun dealers at the show were registered with the FBI, which dealers must call to receive an individual's clearance before selling them a long-barrel gun like a rifle or shotgun." ...

"In Saratoga County, the 'amendment system' requires the dealer to fill out a sale receipt with customer and gun information, which is used for a background check. If cleared... the customer can usually pick up the gun within a few days by presenting the amendment to a gun shop." ...

"Last Friday, as I was coming into work, I saw a friend of mine engaged in an animated discussion with the security guard. My friend walked out of the building looking disgusted, and I followed to find out what the trouble was. Turns out that Jim (not his real name) had committed an egregious faux pas: he had brought several shotguns to work in the trunk of his car. No, he was not preparing to go on a killing spree; he was going hunting after work. Because he had several thousand dollars worth of firearms in the car, he asked security to keep an eye on his vehicle. They responded by making him move his car off the property. A guard was dispatched to ensure that he did so." ...

"I'm a gun owner, and so they relegate me to one of three groups: right wing wacko, hillbilly, or potential psycho. I am none of the above. Yet, because I enjoy shooting and believe in self-defense, I have been branded. It is impossible to talk rationally about firearms with someone who starts from the premise that guns are inherently evil." ...

"It is not often that we hear good news in the fight against bad ideas. Junk science, sloppy criticism, and — worst of all — false history are all used to foster anti-American public opinion and mis-direct policy decisions. Bad ideas are all but untouchable when they are given the stamp of 'scholarship' and find a safe haven in the American university. Truth will out, but it requires rigor, and diligence."

"Michael Bellesiles, author of the award winning Arming America: The Origins of a National Gun Culture, has known all about getting away with bad scholarship — until last week." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. — RONALD REAGAN (1986)
