"'Public opinion polls show that, although more than 60 percent of Americans erroneously believe the Constitution gives them a right to be armed, only a minority of Americans believe that it should grant that right,' The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence Legal Action Project declares."

"They're right, you know, if not in their percentages, then certainly in their assertion. If you believe the Constitution gives you the right to be armed, you're simply and demonstrably wrong. If you think the Constitution should grant you that right, sorry, you're wrong again."

"... The Bill of Rights grants no rights. To believe that it does reverses the proper role between government and the people." ...

"Questions for BATFU: You really expect us not to think this is a vendetta you're conducting against Ryan Horsley and his family business because he dared to stand up to you instead of baring his throat and letting you kill him? Who the hell is up at 4:30 AM doing Internet searches for "reds trading post news" except someone obsessed with trying to find...anything...to use against him?"

"This is the kind of stuff you expect to see in a criminal investigation. I'd like to see someone explain this web search and their motives--under oath."

"Firearms manufacturers and dealers are currently being eliminated by the BATFE; with the dealers they began to weed out the individuals with licenses. Soon that wasn't enough, so they began to set their sights on Pawn Shops and other small gun shops."

"You have to realize that this is an agency that fears being shut down, so they have to justify their own existence. An Inspector cannot come into a gun shop, spend all day or several days searching through your books and then report back that they didn't find anything. So the inspectors will flatter you; as Inspector Caleb Rushing did to us in 2005 by telling us that we were one of the best small guns shops that they had inspected. ..." ...

"But I can't say I'd ban traditional revolvers and hunting rifles of the non-semiautomatic variety. Some strain of a Western, more rural upbringing comes to the fore. It does not run as strong in me as it does my uncle who believes we have a duty to bear arms. It's not as steady as my brother's with his military background and his guns in a safe ..."

"Idaho's two United States Senators, Larry Craig and Michael Crapo — both Republicans — are blocking President Bush’s nomination of Michael Sullivan to head up the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms."

"The reason? Mr. Crapo's spokesman said his boss is hearing from gun owners and dealers with 'concerns about ATF policies regarding gun sales and even ownership.' It may be, he said, 'that the federal government is getting a little too aggressive with people who haven’t done anything wrong.'"

"It's a remarkable claim to make in a month in which a young gunman in Nebraska shot 11 people, killing eight of them, at an Omaha shopping mall, and another killed four young people in two attacks on religious organizations in Colorado, before taking his own life." ...

KABA Note: Neither of which have anything to do with the BATFE's out of control actions under Acting Director Sullivan's 'leadership'.

"They are simple words - 'the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed' - that liberal commentators have called 'maddeningly ambiguous,' even while justifying constitutional rights (like privacy) that go unnamed in the Constitution."

"Yet for all of the controversy surrounding gun control laws, the Second Amendment has not been considered by the U.S. Supreme Court in nearly 70 years. All of that is about to change, as the highest court in the land announced recently that this spring it will review the case of Parker v. District of Columbia ... A decision will likely be issued by early summer, set against the backdrop of a heated 2008 presidential campaign." ...

FULL TEX BELOW:

This is one of the most incomprehensible accounts of a fascinating story ever: So, says the Times, a guy in Texas shoots two guys robbing his neighbor. However! "A police report suggests [the robbers] may have been shot in the back."
It... suggests that?
And: "a plainclothes officer had pulled up just in time to see [the white neighbor] pointing his shotgun at both men across his front yard, that [one of the robbers] had at one point started to run in a way that took him closer to [the shooter], and that both men 'received gunfire from the rear.'" Leaving aside the entirely unfortunate quote about receiving things from the rear, whaa? Someone printed the phrase "started to run in a way that took him closer"?

Mike Crapo and Larry Craig have put a TEMPORARY HOLD on Sullivan’s confirmation as Director of the ATF." ...

In July of 2006, Attorney General Wasden committed to join Texas and other states in opposing the District of Columbia in this case. The state of Texas will be writing the amicus brief, which will be filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in February 2008. Attorney General Wasden looks forward to joining in this multi-state effort to defend the Second Amendment rights of Idahoans and all Americans.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
