"Before filming began on 'Black Hawk Down,' production crews went to International Studio Services prop house in Sunland looking for an elaborate cache of Soviet-made AK-47 assault rifles, Squad Automatic Weapons and other firearms."

"But they quickly discovered what the makers of 'Saving Private Ryan,' 'Blade 2' and almost every James Bond flick have learned: It's cheaper and easier to go overseas than to navigate the complicated and increasingly prohibitive U.S. gun laws."

Priceless quote from Di Fi, "I have never heard of this before. I don't know of anyone having a problem getting a gun into this country."

"That might be true enough, armorers concede -- if, that is, one is smuggling a weapon illegally into the country for criminal purposes."

"The Supreme Court issued a traffic warning Monday: Beware of whom you ride with. If drugs are found in a vehicle, all occupants can be arrested, the justices said in a unanimous decision."

"It was a victory for Maryland and 20 other states that argued police frequently find drugs in traffic stops but no one in the vehicle claims them. The court gave officers the go-ahead to arrest everyone."

"In a small space like a car, an officer could reasonably infer 'a common enterprise' among a driver and passengers, the justices ruled."
 

Taking First Amendment battle online

"Despite the best efforts of Congress and the US Supreme Court, the First Amendment survives -- online." ...

" 'Whatever you think about the First Amendment, this is pure incumbent protection,' griped Joel Gora, associate dean of the Brooklyn Law School, who represented the ACLU in its failed effort to have the law ruled unconstitutional."

"But the reformers weren't paying attention to the Internet when they drafted their bill. There's nothing in McCain-Feingold about restricting the use of the Web, or e-mail, or streaming audio and video. Which means that we're about to enter the golden age of Internet politics, as millions in cash that can no longer be spent on TV and radio ads will make its way online."

"In upholding the major provisions of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law, the Supreme Court has openly declared that it is legitimate to curtail freedom of speech 'marginally' in order to fight government corruption."

"But the sad reality is that the new laws not only fail to confront the source of corruption in government, by violating free speech they heap even more injustices upon the victims of such corruption."
 

A Sad Day For The Constitution...

So noted NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre when, on December 10, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision to uphold the major provisions of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA), also known as McCain-Feingold. As we have often reported, the issue that has been of greatest concern to NRA is the law`s prohibition on the running of broadcast ads (termed 'electioneering communications') that mention candidates for federal office during the critical 30-day period before a primary election and 60-day period before a general election. This First Amendment 'blackout' period is a direct attack on free speech."

"Next time a bill reaches your desk you think is unconstitutional, please veto it. We can no longer depend on the Supreme Court to uphold the Constitution."

"Oh, and by the way, if you do get the chance to appoint Members to the Supreme Court, I surely hope you appoint people like Justices Scalia and Thomas. We must have Justices like those men if we have any chance of saving the Constitution, or at least what little is left of it."

"As Americans have, in recent years, become continually less knowledgeable regarding the reasons for the success and greatness of their country, the underlying principle of the Constitution has been increasingly subordinated to its antithetical counterpart. Under the dubious auspices of 'the compelling interest of the state,' a plethora of detestable decisions have been codified into law in recent years. Clearly the Founders, being of a noble caliber unknown among political circles in the present day, instead recognized as paramount the 'compelling interest' of the individual, who by himself could not otherwise prevail against the enormous power of the state."

"Neither political machine - called 'parties' - gives a hoot about your freedom or your dignity as a human being. Forget such nonsense. What the government, whether federal, State, or a political subdivision of, cares about is the amount of perks they receive, and how rapidly their coffers are filled by the regular people of this union of states and to an even greater extent by the major financial controllers that purchase them lock, stock, and barrel."

Dean for America?

"Much of the enthusiasm for Dean from within the freedom movement stems from his record as governor of Vermont, the state with the least restrictive gun laws in the nation. Howard Dean was endorsed by the NRA eight times, and did nothing to push for increased gun control in Vermont. Yet his presidential website tells another story entirely: 'I believe the federal gun laws we have -- like the Brady Bill -- are important, and I would veto any attempt to repeal or gut them. The Assault Weapons Ban expires next year, and it should be renewed.' Dean would allow individual states to set their own policies, as long as the existing federal restrictions were upheld everywhere." ...

"Gov. Bob Taft's promise to veto a concealed weapons bill reflects political considerations that go beyond the Republican Party."

"Taft has long been uneasy about giving Ohioans the right to carry a concealed gun. At first he refused to support legislation without the backing of law enforcement groups."

"This fall, as that opposition fell away in the face of several compromises to the bill, he added a new requirement: The public should have some access to the names of permit holders."

"The Legislature passed a concealed weapons bill last week."

"Parents of students at a South Carolina high school charged in a federal lawsuit on Monday that their children were terrorized by armed police and drug-sniffing dogs during an illegal search at the school."

"The lawsuit stems from the surprise commando-style drug search of 107 students at Stratford High School in Goose Creek, South Carolina, on Nov. 5."

"A widely televised surveillance tape of the raid showed police with guns drawn, handcuffing students with plastic cuffs and ordering them not to move while officers and dogs searched them. No drugs or weapons were found and no arrests were made."

"David Groh, who drives a taxi while impersonating Elvis, seems to have struck the fancy of Seattleites. After a taxi inspector fined him for failing to live up to the city's expectations of what a cabdriver should look like, Groh filed a lawsuit that gave rise to 'Free Elvis!' bumper stickers and persuaded the city council to loosen its dress code. 'Uh, a-thank you verrah much,' he said after the vote."

"Like Groh, Daniel Steiner, who owns a five-car limousine business in Tampa, is fighting the arbitrary dictates of local transportation regulators. But the most surreal aspect of Steiner's battle is the government's demand: It wants him to raise his prices."

Thanong and Wallop Supapornsupat, an influential businessman in Chon Buri, had an argument over a land deal that led to a fistfight. Thanong then pulled out a gun and fired four shots at Wallop, one of which went through the businessman's chest, police said.

The incident took place at about 6.30 pm in Soi Naklua 99 in Bang Lamung district. Wallop was reported to be in stable condition last night.

Americans now await President's promised action on assault weapons

"Washington, DC - The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence today (Wednesday) lauded President Bush for signing H.R. 3348, which extends for ten years a ban on firearms that can evade metal detectors and other security screening devices. The current ban on these undetectable firearms would have expired today."

"Pro-gun groups, including the Gun Owners of America, opposed the legislation."

"Meanwhile S. 1431 and H.R. 2038 - two bills that would renew and strengthen the federal assault weapons ban - are pending in the U.S. Congress. The current ban on military-style assault weapons will expire September 13, 2003 unless President Bush and Congress act."

"Gun range owners do not have a constitutional right to poison our land and water with lead, despite what lobbyists say." ...

"Baxley, a funeral director in private life, has determined that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution affords gun range owners the right to pollute the soil, air and groundwater with impunity. And he wants to pass a state law to stop the Florida Department of Environmental Protection from enforcing pollution regulations against any of Florida's 400 or so shooting ranges."

"Small made high-quality, often ornate guns. Only about five such Small rifles are known to exist, and none is in Knox County, Schuckman said."

" 'We can’t operate. I hope the Comelec would realize our predicament. For as long as our exemption has not been granted, there is no way we can effectively function. This means no arrest, no surveillance, and all our agents would be posted in their offices,' said the official who refused to be identified."

"The D.C. gun law, which took effect Sept. 24, 1976, prohibited outright any private ownership of handguns that had not been registered by that date. But there was a cruel catch; registration was restricted to gun owners who had already registered their pistols. Individuals who did not re-register by the deadline were subject to criminal prosecution, and their guns automatically became contraband."

"Men and women who stood in line thinking they could register a handgun that was not already on the government list were told they couldn't register. Given one week's notice, they were presented two options--turn their firearms over to police or get them out of the District."

"The 1968 Gun Control Act, aimed at stopping the flow of cheaply made, easily concealed handguns into the country, has done little to prevent the import of millions of guns that lack important safety features."

"Most imported firearms don’t have features that show if the guns are loaded or that prevent them from firing if the ammunition clips are removed, a Detroit News investigation found. Fewer still have pistol grip safeties, effective in preventing children from discharging firearms by rendering the gun inoperable unless the grip safety and trigger are depressed at the same time."

"The law, which set no rules for American-made guns, also has created a breed of low-end gun makers in the country." ...

Glocks aren't "unnecessarily dangerous" if you follow one cardinal rule: keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot. Gun owners know this lesson well. Cops, on the other hand, appear to want to blame the gun rather than take responsibility for their own actions.
