"Gun control advocates are now saying that not only is renewal of the assault weapons ban necessary, but that the 'loopholes' in the law must be closed. But this gun ban does not have identifiable 'loopholes' per se -- it is nothing but a cosmetic and ineffective law." ...

"Add this to the fact that the 1994 law still allows ownership of all the pre-ban 'assault weapons' and the public has greater options for its choice of firearms than ever before. It is a great time to be a gun enthusiast."

"As gun control legislation goes, the assault weapons ban is a laughingstock." ...

"In their latest campaign against the National Rifle Association, gun-control groups are highlighting the names of Jewish organizations and individuals found on an NRA-compiled 'blacklist,' in what observers say is an effort to spur one of the gun-control lobby's key constituencies to action." ...

"Menitoff said he didn't understand the point of publicly labeling one's enemies."

" 'I don't know of any self-respecting organization that creates a blacklist,' he said. 'It's beyond the pale. It has no effect on our stance as an organization, and I can't believe it would have any effect on any other credible organization.' "

The SPLC and ADL as well as many others also have an "enemies list." So when it's a liberal group it's OK, but when it's a group trying to point out gun control bigotry it's unacceptable?

"R N Patterson has always melded hot button issues into his thrillers, but his latest, Balance of Power, may be the most blatant example of all."

"Patterson recently spoke with PW Daily's Edward Nawotka about why he weaves so much real-life politics into his fiction."

"PWD: What was your agenda in writing this book?"

"RNP: To bring to light the issue that gun safety has been hijacked by a group of radical extremists and prevented common sense measures that would save many, if not most, of the 30,000 lives we lose to guns each year. To put that into perspective, it would take Osama Bin Laden nine more attacks to do what we do with guns to ourselves in America every year."

"But the Second Amendment doesn't belong to any political party."

"The poll, released by Americans for Gun Safety, a gun-rights organization that works to build bipartisan support for federal legislation to close the gun-show loophole, enhance background checks and aggressively enforce existing federal gun laws, found gun-owning voters often assume that Democrats, particularly if they are silent on the issue, are anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment and disrespectful of the values held by those who own firearms. In addition, the study shows that a plurality of gun owners define themselves as moderates who would likely flock to Democratic candidates with a moderate position on guns."

"The founders of nrablacklist.com wanted to bring attention to the 19-page list posted on the National Rifle Association's website titled 'Fact Sheet: National Organizations with Anti-Gun Policies'." ...

"The petition does not specifically oppose the creation of a blacklist though. Rather, it supports the 'Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2003,' which bans the importation of semi-automatic weapons and opposes the 'Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,' which grants gun manufacturers and dealers immunity from civil liability suits when people are harmed by the misuse of the guns they sell. Both bills will soon be voted on in Congress."

"Another student who saw the gun in the backpack informed a parent, and the parent notified school officials."

"Officials do not believe the child took the gun out of the backpack at school, nor did he make any threats, Azar said."

" 'To the best of our knowledge, we think it was an accidental case,' Azar said. 'The gun was unintentionally brought to school.' "

"It appears a parent placed the gun in the backpack over the weekend and the child didn't realize the gun was there until he arrived at school."

"The attacker pushed the gun into the back of the 22-year-old security guard and shouted at him to drop the box. The robber picked up the box before getting back into the car which was driven off at speed by a second man."

"Dubbed the 'Green River Killer' after the Seattle area spot where he dumped his first known victims, Ridgway admitted murdering the women between 1982 and his arrest in 2001."

"In the 20 months since its creation, TSA has made great strides in improving civil aviation security. TSA inherited a 30-year-old passenger-screening system designed to detect obvious weapons and has transformed it into a system that also finds much smaller but still dangerous items. However, recent events involving the smuggling of prohibited items aboard aircraft validate that our layered approach to security that cannot rely on any one system. TSA's layered system, including hardened cockpit doors, Federal Air Marshals, armed Federal Flight Deck Officers (FFDO), as well as passenger and baggage screening recognizes the fact that there is no such thing as a zero failure rate for passenger screening."

"The .303 bore rifle — the backbone of police armoury — slipped from the hands of a police personnel and the wooden butt gave away from the metallic bore."

"Chitpore police explain that the wooden butt of the rifle narrows at the point it is fixed with the metallic bore. Constant grip, they say, loosens it more. 'The broken butt means that the gun was old and the screws too gave away,' a senior officer claimed."

"A LONG-SERVING police officer, who was shot at point-blank range, has said he is glad his ordeal is over after a teenager yesterday pleaded guilty to attempted murder."

"The apparently motiveless attack left John Cunningham critically injured after he was shot twice in what the High Court in Glasgow heard was a 'bizarre and unique' crime."

"In July, Paul Murray, 19, walked into Shettleston police station in the east end of Glasgow, brandishing a sawn-off shotgun before shooting PC Cunningham in the chest."

"The warrant says police checked with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and learned both Wheelers belonged to the National Alliance. Nearly one and a half pages discussed the history of the National Alliance and the criminal activity of some of its members, none of whom had the last name of Wheeler.

" 'We disagree he ever said those things,' Thompson said of the conversation police claim one of their officers had with Lovell Wheeler. 'But those are political views. They don't constitute a crime. They're not a basis for holding a man without bail.' "

"While conceding that all parties concerned had the best of intentions in this matter, it looks like Thompson and Warnken have the better argument."

"A lot more probable cause was needed to raid the Wheelers' home than an unconfirmed anonymous tip and Lovell Wheeler's hunch that there may be a race war. Black columnist Carl Rowan even wrote a 1996 book called The Coming Race War in America and kept a gun in his home."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A corrections officer was injured Tuesday afternoon when a weapon discharged accidentally at the Multi-County Correctional Center.

The incident at the center on Marion-Williamsport Road on the city's north end was reported to Marion City Police at 1:39 p.m. Squads were dispatched to the facility's sallyport, where they load and unload inmates for transport, according to Lt. Mark Beaschler.

The officer's name and condition were not available as of press time today.

Beaschler said a report was not written because investigation into the incident is being handled by the Multi-County Correctional Center.

No one authorized to speak about the incident on behalf of the Multi-County jail was available for comment Wednesday. Executive Director Robert Bayles, his director and his deputy director were attending an all-day conference, according to a spokesperson at the facility.

This is the kind of gun that Sarah Brady needs to get rid of, the kind that discharges all by itself!

[emphasis added]

"Kahan and Braman argue that individuals of an egalitarian orientation who believe in the mutual interdependence of members of society have a tendency to support gun control, while individuals of a hierarchical or individualist orientation tend to oppose it."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
