Evidence and Comments on the Source of the Mailed Anthrax
Submitted by: Tim Fulton

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
KABA NOTE: Not RKBA-related, but urgent and significant to our private lives...

"All the available evidence indicates that the source of the mailed anthrax, or the information and materials to make it, is a US government program. ... Contrary to early speculation, there are no more than about 20 laboratories known to have obtained the Ames strain from Fort Detrick. The names of 15 of these laboratories have been found in the open literature (see Appendix). Of these, probably only about four in the US might possibly have the capability for weaponizing anthrax. The Senate sample contains a special form of silica used in the US process. It does not contain bentonite (used by the Iraqis)."

Should he be confirmed, Magaw...would be entrusted with the power to authorize (or deny) any specific program facilitating the arming of pilots.

Unfortunately, John Magaw does not come highly recommended by the firearms community. As the former Director of the BATF, Magaw oversaw the cover-up of the Waco debacle, and as chief Gun Czar, he was certainly no friend of gun owners.

Ask your Senator to OPPOSE Magaw if he will not commit to letting pilots be armed.

Some BB, pellet and air guns may be as powerful as handguns, according to the Handgun Epidemic Lowering Plan (HELP) Network, an (international) group of "medical and allied professionals dedicated to reducing handgun-related injuries and deaths."

The report's authors call for "federal regulations on the manufacturing, sale, ownership and use of non-powder guns, based on the speed at which they shoot their ammunition."

* Sec.1062 of the Defense Authorization bill has been removed.

* Supreme Court considering if judges or only juries can decide if a convict can receive an "enhanced" sentence for "using" a gun in a crime.

* Liz Dole likely to win.

* The New York Times weighed-in on the criticism of Michael Bellesiles (but never mentions the historian who began uncovering the fraud, Clayton Cramer).

A musket in his grip and a knife slung off his hip, Pioneer Pete is catching some flak these days. Some students and administrators say his weapon-toting ways break rules that apply to students.

"You have to admit, we are looking for a superintendent, and here's a picture of a guy toting a gun," said Bonnie Webber, webberb@orecity.k12.or.us, director of human resources for Oregon City schools.
 

VA: "Free" Gun locks given away around region this week

Wasn't kidding about the Virginian-Pilot being a "lefty" newspaper -- oddly it's in an otherwise conservative military area.

Unfortunately, these sorts of stories are far too common. This one even gives the week's schedule, and how to get your "FREE" (tax-funded) merchandise even if you miss the "Virginia Gun Lock Tour '01."

This is "Project HomeSafe" at work, which is funded by NSSF.org and the U.S.DOJ. (Someone else will have to explain NSSF being involved, I'm clueless.)
 

"Equal Time" - Ashcroft upholding gun laws
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"When Ashcroft took an oath to the American people to uphold the law and protect the civil liberties that this nation was founded upon, I believed him. Thus far, he has done nothing to betray my trust in him. In my opinion, allowing any law enforcement agency to circumvent the laws on FBI background checks for gun purchases, which in this case were set by the Brady Act in 1993, would not only be a crime, but a violation of the rights of all law-abiding Americans." --JACK WILLIAMS III
 

VA: Ruling stuns family of man shot at home

A careless gun owner shot a .357 into Scott Rein's home. The bullet killed Mr. Rein, shooting him in the back. All charges were dropped against Timothy W. Woods, who had been playing with his gun in his front yard.

This tragic story thus provides groaning fodder for this left-leaning newspaper, and giving all of us responsible gun owners another big black eye in general.
 

Use NICS in Terrorist Investigations Act (S.1788)

Attorney General Ashcroft has been criticized for obeying the law and preserving the privacy of gun sale background check records. Now Sen. Schumer has introduced a Bill to change the law to allow any law enforcement agency access to the NICS records for any investigations. And while he is at it, he's also thrown in a clause to try and reinstate a 90-day retention period for the records.

KABA NOTE: There are 7 cosponsors. It has been referred to the Judiciary Committee.

Contact your U.S. Senators and the Judiciary Committee to make sure they OPPOSE this bill.

"I would like to point out something that is near and dear to my heart. It is the Second Amendment and our right to bear arms. In our world today it is so easy to get side tracked when it comes to this issue. The anti-gun and anti-rights people have learned to stay focused on the issue and take one small victory at a time. Now if the pro-gun side could learn to do the same thing we could win..." --Sheriff Michael E. Cook
 

Six Solutions to Government Tyranny

"There seems to have evolved a system whereby the government, by selectively not enforcing the law creates situations that enable it to reward itself with more taxes and more political power. For years the Clinton Justice Department drastically reduced the prosecutions of firearms law violations and thereby created a rise in such crimes which was used to justify the creation of new and far more restrictive laws and new taxes to increase the appropriate bureaucracies..." --Lee Robinson

"Is this man nuts? Did he learn his public safety priorities from comic books? ... If carried to the extreme, this attitude [Ashcroft's support of the 2nd Anendment] could interfere with federal authority to regulate gun use..." --Marianne Means of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer is mad that Ashcroft is obeying the law.

"The City Council wants to send a letter to Wal-Mart asking the chain to stop selling a plastic gun that looks real enough to get someone killed."

"Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a big advocate of the right to own guns," he said. "But this is going to get someone killed."

Interesting piece on Geraldo's decision to carry a gun. Oddly, our favorite tabloid journalist seems almost offended at the suggestion that he ought to unilaterally disarm.

(Funny, I feel the same way when elitists like him suggest I disarm.)
