"The gun industry promises that a gun in a child's hand is a short-cut to responsibility and maturity. In fact, the only guarantee is one of increased risk of death and injury," states Marty Langley, VPC policy analyst and study author. "The firearms industry and gun lobby are attempting to secure their own survival by endangering that of our children."

Rick Stanley, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate, and Duncan Philp were released from Denver Police custody December 16.

Charged with violating a local gun-control ordinance for openly carrying loaded handguns in a planned act of civil disobedience, they are seeking a jury trial to have the ordinance declared unconstitutional.

Paul Grant, attorney for both men, stated, "There's absolutely no way a judge should be able to uphold Denver's ordinance in light of the state constitution".

"John Ashcroft's decision to prevent the FBI from checking gun records is proof of what we have said since he was first nominated to become Attorney General: he is beholden to the gun lobby and he places his allegiance to them above the best interests of the United States." --Sara Brady

Some Americans have responded to the September 11 attacks by purchasing firearms. Ridge was asked about that phenomenon.

"The casual acquisition, the personal acquisition of a firearm I don't think is necessarily going to enhance national security," Ridge said. "It may give an individual or family a greater sense of comfort, but at the end of the day that's not the best antidote to 21st century terrorist attacks."

KABA NOTE: He was certainly careful not to commit to any concrete thoughts or opinions.

MD: Most Baltimore murder victims have criminal records

There's one tie that binds the vast majority of the victims: "Almost every one of these people had a criminal record. That's a fact," Detective Carew said. "The bulk of their charges were related to drugs." They are also mostly black, male, and younger than 30.

"The result is a self-perpetuating matriarchal cycle in which women take over households, and young men grow up with very few positive male role models or professional opportunities in their community."

FIRST ITEM ON PAGE

TO THE EDITOR: "The gun ban extremists are at again, this time shamelessly exploiting the tragedies of Sept. 11 in an effort to force their agenda on an unwilling public. Once again their target is Attorney General John Ashcroft. ... Sarah Brady is calling for Ashcroft to break the law by disregarding a key provision of legislation that bears her name." --Jim Powell

A recent study reported Maryland had the highest rate of handgun murders involving juveniles among the 50 states from 1995 through 1999.

"Some might take this as evidence that the state's gun laws are ineffective. But there are several reasons why such a conclusion is premature, at best..." --Daniel Webster

"In a robbery shocking for its brazenness, two men armed with a gun shoved their way into a Wellesley home at about noon yesterday..."

Why would anyone in MA need a firearm? You can just use pepper-spray. Oh wait, in MA you can't use pepper-spray. Well, maybe you can use a really big flashlight.
 

Police now carry guns, badges...and beanbags (and Tasers)

Nonlethal weapons are now becoming a standard-issue presence in many squad cars as concern grows about the use of "excessive force."

Example: A man ignores the police order to drop his weapon. When it seems the man is going for his gun instead, the officer shoots him with a beanbag. The man suffers only a "large bruise" instead of a bullet hole.

A terrified couple were woken early today when police smashed their way into their home only to be told: "You've got the wrong address."

"It was not us they were looking for - they were not even looking for my son, just a friend of his."

"Why didn't they just knock?" asked 42-year-old Mrs O'Brien, who was woken by the sound of breaking glass."

Rep Melissa Hart (PA) has submitted H.R.3491 to create a massive study of ballistic imaging of bullets test-fired from newly manufactured guns to evaluate the feasability and effectiveness of creating a national database of pattern marks on bullets from gun barrels for use in tracing crime bullets back to particular guns and individuals.

KABA NOTE: Imagine that! Testing technology before implementing it! Of course, as any gunsmith will tell them, the marks left from individual barrels change over time. They could avoid wasting time and money by simply finding out the facts.

"All the gun-ban groups are copying the Americans for Gun Safety fact sheets to promote [McCain's gun show ban S860] legislation. ... They ended that diatribe by accusing 'the gun lobby' of being an 'accessory' to the 'next act of terrorism.'

"An (AP) article...covered Rivera’s acknowledgement of his carrying a gun. His revelation has caused great consternation... In fact, one war correspondent was asked by his anchor whether he would carry a gun and he responded that if he did he wouldn’t tell anyone." --Tanya Metaksa

Resistance to sudden violence, for the preservation not only of my person, my limbs, and life, but of my property, is an indisputable right of nature which I have never surrendered to the public by the compact of society, and which perhaps, I could not surrender if I would. — JOHN ADAMS
