"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has once again 'inserted foot firmly in mouth' ...

"Brady Campaign spokesman Zach Ragbourn told the Daytona Beach News Journal that his organization opposes passage of such a law because, 'What's dangerous is having people in the state capital make that decision in advance about every kind of worker in every kind of situation.'"

"'For years,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb in response, 'the Brady Campaign has been working feverishly on one-size-fits-all gun control schemes at the state and national level. Now all of a sudden, they don't think it's a good idea for Florida lawmakers to pass a reform measure that protects the rights of gun owners.'" ...

"According to a printout from a computer controlled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice, I am an enemy of the state."

"The printout, shown to me recently by a friend who works for Justice ... contains more than 100 pages documenting what the Bureau and the Bush Administration consider to be my threats to the security of the United States of America." ...

"In the past, when information collected on an American citizen failed to turn up any criminal activity, FBI policy called for such information to be destroyed."

"But President George W. Bush in 2003 reversed that long-standing policy and ordered the bureau and other federal agencies to not only keep that information but place it in government databases that can be accessed by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies." ...

... "The CRS memo changes nothing by itself. It has no legal force. But it is the first light Congress has shone on the ATF in 23 years. It is a _beginning_. It is a tool concerned gun owners -- and defense attorneys -- can use."

... "If American gun owners take this memo and demand action upon it, this little report will be bigger than the recent pro-gun vote in Brazil, bigger than forcing FEMA to allow firearms into refugee settlements. This has the potential to lead to the dismantling of one of the worst agencies of the federal government." ...

... " ... Tell it to the little punks who swaggered by a half hour ago with their shotguns, mocking my bold and prominently-placed, 'Posted! No Trespassing! Violators will be Pistol-Whipped!' signs."

"At first I seethed, gritted my teeth and thought about getting down and giving chase. But naaah. Something about seeing kids with guns that gets me right here. It's a moving and beautiful sight. Watching them lovingly cradle and caress their new popguns, bantering and bragging about who's gonna blast the biggest buck, boasting about who's the best shot - I just choke up. I love it. America needs more of this. 'Been there done that,' I thought." ...

"Until Christmas Eve 1996, she had never contemplated carrying a gun."

"Then her husband beat her."

"The woman, of Salt Lake City, promptly got a divorce and a protective order - and a 9mm Glock pistol."

"'I was always terrified of guns. But my fear of my ex-husband became far greater than my fear of guns. I saw what he was capable of,' said the woman."

"The Tribune is not identifying the woman because her ex-husband has not been charged with any crime."

"She said protective orders alone are not enough to protect her and others like her. A piece of paper won't save them from an abuser hurtling toward them with a fist or a weapon." ...

"Despite recent criticism, Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright says he still recommends that citizens fight back against crime with guns. And it appears that at least one man is following the mayor's advice."

"Police say the man was moving his belongings from one vehicle to another Thursday night when two other men approached him. That's when the man went for his gun."

"Several shots were fired. And in the end, the man got shot twice in the thigh. But the mayor says by getting his gun, the man did the right thing."

"DESPITE THE best efforts of anti-gun crusaders, the 2nd Amendment lives. So does Article 2-a of the New Hampshire Constitution, which reads, 'All persons have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their property and the state.'"

"The New Hampshire Sunday News reported last week on a string of incidents in which police officers stopped citizens who openly carried pistols. ..."

"'What boggled my mind was that out of at least seven officers and dispatchers, not one seemed to know that open carry is legal in New Hampshire ...' Pelletier said."

"... If police chiefs are not teaching this to their officers, they need to be. Ignorance of the law is no excuse for harassing innocent citizens."

"Wisconsin lawmakers should not declare most public places off-limits to individuals carrying concealed guns, a Texas lawmaker and gun advocate said today."

"'When you carve places out, you're telling a gunman where they can go to kill people like fish in a barrel,' Texas Rep. Suzanna Gratia Hupp told a joint legislative hearing this morning."

"Hupp, who decided to run for office after her parents were killed in ... the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, said it would be a mistake to ban the carrying of concealed weapons from government buildings, schools, hospitals and other publicly owned facilities."

"'If it is a place where we as citizens have to enter, (carrying concealed weapons) should be allowed,' she said." ...

"The gun lobby argues that guns shouldn’t be blamed for gun-related crime. They say crime stems from such socioeconomic factors as poverty and illegal drug sales."

"'We’re coming up on deer season, and there’s going to be 250,000-plus people in the field with loaded guns,' said Todd Vandermyde, the National Rifle Association’s Statehouse lobbyist. 'Does mayhem occur? Does everybody just fly off the handle and get into arguments and start shooting one another? No, it doesn’t happen.'" ...

"At least 10 Democrats — mostly from Chicago or the surrounding area — who voted for the bill when it passed the House last spring changed their minds and voted with Blagojevich on Thursday." ...

"When Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was running for the position he attained, he gathered momentum and much of his voting from central and downstate Illinois."

"But since taking office he has reverted to taking the side of big city, upstate Illinois, and it was no different when he recently dealt with gun legislation. Standing up to various gun advocate organizations is difficult enough, doing so with dwindling popularity in the downstate areas proves the governor is not yet ready to let go of what he feels strongly about."

"Even though this strong stance against organizations like the National Rifle Association may be perilous to his upcoming election, the legislation he and other assembly members stood up for will be well worth the trouble." ...

"When an 8-year-old girl made headlines last month by bagging the first black bear of the season, many Marylanders were surprised to learn the state has no minimum age limit for hunting. But for some families in rural areas such as Garrett County, learning to handle firearms is as much a part of childhood as losing one's baby teeth."

"The prime example: a law passed this spring that makes it clear citizens can use force to fight back when attacked in public or in their homes or cars -- a law critics say threatens to turn Florida into ... the Wild West."

"Now, fresh from those victories, the NRA and its legislative allies want to try again."
