"The national public-policy debate was plunged to a new low by the single-issue lobbying group Americans for Gun Safety (AGS). AGS is funded solely by Internet billionaire Andy McKelvey — a former board member of the gun-ban lobby known as 'Handgun Control Inc.'

"The new group is trying to make an outrageous attempt to link the terrorist strikes against this country to a national tradition as old as America itself — gun shows."

Report by James Jay Baker, Executive Director of National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA)

Leung explains that when people call, including grandmothers, to inquire about buying a gun, "they all get furious when I tell them that they have to wait 8 months to get the permit."

He assures them that once you obtain the permit, however, "there is no limit to what you can buy."

KABA NOTE: Has he read California law lately? There are indeed many limits on what lawful CA citizens can buy.

Apparently "frustrated" by Baltimore's rising murder rate, Mayor Martin O'Malley lashed out at the top federal prosecutor and federal judges, saying they are not doing enough to help the city fight crime.

O'Malley, a Democrat whose crime-fighting pledge has become a barometer of his success, said U.S. Attorney Thomas M. DiBiagio is accepting fewer state gun cases for prosecution in the harsher federal system.

"A reasonable officer would understand that after shooting a citizen whose only crime was jaywalking, he should call for backup rather than fire a second round of shots at a wounded man."

Hunt noted in his ruling that there was "little evidence" to support Gentner's claim that Perrin pointed something at the officer that could "reasonably be perceived as a firearm."

It happened again. Some poor guy caught in a love triangle he couldn't handle went berserk and shot a number of co-workers before killing himself.

These things are happening more and more frequently, the list of victims continues to grow, and much of the blame for the deaths and woundings can be laid squarely at the doors of the nation's rabid anti-gun zealots.

Rebuttal to Sen. Charles Schumer By J.J. Johnson

"Regrettably, Mr. Schumer has been a leader in Washington in this assault upon the freedoms and rights of Americans. He has been one of the most virulent attackers of the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights, and upon the rights of individual citizens to defend themselves and their country.

"Few are the voices pointing out that the horrors of September 11th might never have happened if such constitutional rights had been practiced at least among the crewmembers of the doomed flights."

Attorney General Jim Ryan had his staff surf the Internet last year looking for criminals. The sting netted six weapon sales and a single conviction but no jail time.

Since then, federal authorities have criticized Ryan's approach and the attorney general's own chief lawyer admitted 4 of the cases were dropped over fears that the sellers were improperly lured into illegal actions.

(Ryan is the Republican-in-name-only Attorney General running for Ill. governorship)

Forest Hill Police took just about everything - including part of the kitchen sink - when they executed search warrants at the home of the city's former fire chief, who is accused of theft, his attorney said.

Police seized more than 20 guns, at least seven of which officials believe were purchased with Forest Hill funds, Hill said. Those 7 guns would be considered city property, City Attorney Bill Lane said.

Crime rates were up during the first half of the year in Arlington and down in Fort Worth and Grand Prairie, according to the FBI's semiannual crime report.

Violent crimes continued to fall in Fort Worth. The Police Department credits increased community involvement and citizen policing units such as 'Code:Blue' and 'Citizens on Patrol' for keeping numbers low.

"We're going to respond to the calls when people call 911, but we're going to look for ways to involve the community to help empower the residents to work with us and help keep the community safe," Gilfour said.

The Democrats and their media chums haven't quite adjusted yet. Their line is that domestically, there's a new faith in "big government" that naturally favours the Dems, and that internationally Bush has signed up to the entire Clinton/Gore agenda -- multilateralism, a big role for the UN, etc. This is, in fact, precisely the opposite of what's happened. On the domestic front, the first victim among Democratic policies has been "gun control."

WASHINGTON — Anti-gun groups are seizing the war on terror as a rationale for tightening gun control laws in America, citing the effort in their demands for more stringent background checks on gun sales at shows and over the Internet.

In a report released Wednesday, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence said potential terrorists are taking advantage of provisions in existing laws to purchase guns.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
...If a man lies under oath or procures the lie of another under oath, if he perjures himself or suborns perjury, he is guilty under the statute law. Under the higher law, under the great law of morality and righteousness, he is precisely as guilty if, instead of lying in a court, he lies in a newspaper or on the stump; and in all probability, the evil effects of his conduct are infinitely more widespread and more pernicious. — Teddy Roosevelt - May 12, 1900
