The Victims of the Public School System Guide to the Bill of Rights
Submitted by: Robin Herman

"As a recovering victim of the American public school system, it took many years of independent study before I finally discovered the true intent of the Bill of Rights. With the 214th anniversary of the adoption of the Amendments only weeks away, the Bill of Rights remains, next to the Constitution itself, the most misunderstood document in the history of the nation. The recent vacancies on the United States Supreme Court have made the Bill of Rights front-page news and a major topic of discussion. Unfortunately, editorials and talk shows continue to misrepresent the original intent of the Amendments. Since a vast majority of the American people suffer from the 'victims of the public school system syndrome' that plagues the nation, the author felt this was the perfect time to offer some information that might help them overcome their affliction concerning the Bill of Rights." ...

"When frustrated voters in San Francisco last month chose to ban handguns in their city, it took the National Rifle Association 24 hours to challenge the vote in court."

"Even the San Francisco city leadership that backed the law banning the sale, manufacture and distribution of firearms within city limits is resigned to the fact the courts will likely overturn the will of 58 per cent of voters and keep the famously liberal city from becoming the third large U.S. municipality to ban handguns." ...

"Nowhere is the U.S. right to bear arms more obvious than here, in flood-ravaged New Orleans, where gun dealers report a shortage of weapons." ...

"The Hamilton Journal-News has published an excellent article by Gregory Ramey, a child psychologist and vice president for outpatient services at Children's Medical Center of Dayton." ...

"Dr. Ramey's article is likely to ring true to those readers in Dayton who recall an incident involving a 5-year-old boy who accidentally shot his 7 year-old neighbor with a gun they had found in an alley."

"After the shooting, the shooter's mother, Marcia Fox, said 'I don't know why he was playing with a gun. I don't even allow him to play with guns, water guns, toy guns, anything. Period.'"

"Clearly the extreme position taken by this mother resulted in her child having no idea what to do when he found a gun." ...

Police in the nation's capital are investigating the discovery of a loaded assault weapon found in a parking lot a block from the Supreme Court.
A law enforcement official says the weapon was found on December second in a residential neighborhood east of the court.

The gun is said to be a MAC-ten assault weapon, capable of firing may bullets over a wide area in a few seconds.

The area is heavily patrolled by police from several jurisdictions, including the U-S Capitol Police, because many members of Congress live in the neighborhood.
 

CCRKBA Calls Canadian PM's Handgun Ban Idea a 'Cheap Political Subterfuge'

"Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin, heading a Liberal Party that has been scandalized by corruption and recently fell after a "no confidence" vote in the House of Commons, is trying to deflect attention from his abysmal failure as a national leader by calling for a ban on handguns, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today."

"'This is nothing less than a cheap political subterfuge,' said CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron. 'I'm not sure if they understand the 'smell test' north of the border, but Martin's attack on handgun owners sure doesn't pass it. This is a smarmy attempt to shift public focus away from his political troubles, and those of his party.'" ...

"An Olympic medallist in Ottawa joined a chorus of groups shooting holes in Paul Martin's announcement that a Liberal government would ban all handguns."

"The ban would offer narrowly defined exemptions for target shooters and give collectors five years to sell or dispose of their weapons."

"Paul Martin said he believed a ban was the best way to combat urban violence and choke off the supply of illegal handguns in the urban centres."

"'I think it's an insult because they know the registry did not work. It has not saved lives,' said Ottawa resident, Linda Thom, who won gold in the pistol competition at the 1984 Olympic Games."

"'So it's a big insult to say more legislation in this area is going to fix the problem. It isn't,' said Thom." ...

"Taking aim at the two major sources of supply for handguns used in crime — the U.S. and private collections in Canada — Prime Minister Paul Martin has unveiled a Liberal campaign plan in Toronto that would severely restrict handgun ownership and beef up efforts to control the illegal flow of weapons."

"Handgun ownership of almost every kind would be illegal under Martin’s proposed “total” ban, which Liberal sources say would go further than any previous attempts in this country to take guns out of people’s hands — whether criminals or simple collectors, whose guns are often the target of thieves."

"Only police, security officers and a select few sport shooters would be allowed to own handguns." ...

The top two officials in Tennessee's Department of Safety are stepping down following an investigation ordered by the state's governor. Background checks of all 855 commissioned officers in the Highway Patrol showed that 41 troopers and staff have criminal backgrounds or past driving violations.

Governor Phil Bredesen says Commissioner Fred Phillips is resigning and Deputy Commissioner Tom Moore will retire.

Bredesen ordered the background check because the Patrol's been under fire for allegations of political favoritism and corruption.

Earlier this week, the commander of the Highway Patrol was forced to resign after he allegedly violated state law. Authorities say he tried to buy a boat that had been seized by troopers and put up for sale as surplus state property.

"We’re not casual about firearms in our house. I was a Marine. I have a healthy respect for firearms and what they can do. No rifle or shotgun gets put away here without a proper inspection and cleaning, but with its chamber empty, its action open, a rifle or shotgun is no more a threat than a wrench or a broom." ...

What a great morning. I came out a little late but we had about two inches of fresh snow on the ground and there were tracks everywhere.

I thought all the deer may have already headed back into the swamp but after I reached my stand four does came out and I dropped the first one right away.

It's the first time I have shut a deer with a muzzle-loader, and, man, what a ball.

I dropped her from about 75 yards away, then the other three deer ran off. After that, some more came through. There was a lot of activity.

I had already shot a big buck with my rifle so I had to shoot a doe, but it was a lot of fun and a great morning.
