IN: Suing the industry out of existence

"The City of Gary can proceed with a lawsuit that seeks to hold gun dealers and manufacturers accountable for years of gun violence, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Tuesday."

"The decision could help fuel U.S. Senate debate next year over legislation that would immunize the gun industry from being sued for crimes committed with their products."

"The 5-0 ruling said the northwestern Indiana city could pursue allegations that the gun businesses had become a public nuisance, in part through sales tactics that put guns into the arms of criminals. Justices agreed the city could seek money damages and injunction orders in state court."

"In an important legal victory against the gun industry, the Indiana Supreme Court today unanimously ruled that the city of Gary may proceed with its lawsuit against gun manufacturers and sellers. The court reversed a lower court ruling dismissing the city's claims and rejected virtually every argument made by the industry against the suit." ...

"The Gary suit charges that the industry has designed, marketed and distributed firearms in ways that ensure the widespread accessibility of handguns to prohibited purchasers..." ...

According to federal data, over 80 percent of criminals get guns through illegal means, such as stealing and straw purchases. Why hold the industry responsible for the crimes of others?

"To prevent future terrorist attacks, industry and government officials are increasingly focused on the vulnerability of cargo planes -- potential fuel-packed weapons that lack some of the basic defenses now protecting passenger aircraft."

"The Transportation Security Administration said Tuesday that after the terror-threat level was raised to 'high,' it boosted the number of inspectors dispatched nationwide to ensure that companies comply with tighter cargo-screening guidelines enacted last month."

"An agency spokesman said extra law enforcement now patrolling the perimeters of airports was specifically put in place to fortify air cargo facilities."

"Malvo was convicted last week of capital murder and associated charges in connection with the Oct. 14, 2002, fatal shooting of 47-year-old FBI analyst Linda Franklin outside a Home Depot store." ...

"During the trial, Malvo's attorneys used an insanity defense, claiming the teen was an 'impressionable 5-foot, 3-inch child' who was brainwashed by his murderous mentor."

"The wording of the First Amendment, that 'Congress shall make no law,' etc., is clear. The Founders and Framers understood that opposition to tyranny required the free expression of ideas, consistent with the general welfare."

"The State continually fails and destroys, yet it persists." ...

"How it goes about the plundering process is critical to its success. The golden rule is: the victims must approve of it."

"Let’s look at how this works with its two greatest sources of loot, income taxes and central banking. Government created both in the same year, 1913 – erecting in effect its two main pillars. Without them, the State is a pussycat, begging for a dish of milk. With them, the State, in a country as rich as the U.S., becomes the greatest destructive force of all time."

"It’s been almost four years since we went to the trouble to copy the Second Amendment positions of Al Gore and George W. Bush from their respective websites and then send the officially stated positions of these two candidates for President out to the folks on our email list, noting that there wasn’t much difference between the two. Naïve babes that we were, we actually thought we might be complimented and/or thanked for making it easier for folks to understand that there was way less difference between Gore and Bush on the issue of guns than many people were claiming."

"Should government agents, operating on their own authority and in violation of privacy law, be allowed to smear Americans by leaking false information to the media? Are journalists who print those lies protected by the 1st Amendment from revealing their sources, thereby preventing those falsely accused from obtaining justice through lawsuits?"

"Those issues were raised by a federal judge's recent ruling that demanded the names of the sources used by reporters who in 1999 printed false claims that scientist Wen Ho Lee had passed on nuclear secrets to China."

"Lee was held in solitary confinement for nine months before the government's case collapsed and 58 of the 59 charges against him were dropped." . . .

"The list goes on. The summer Disney phenom Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, with Johnny Depp doing a Keith Richards imitation as a wobbly buccaneer.

"The discipline comes after an altercation with a mental patient in April. The officers struggled with Denvey Buckley. He died after his arrest. An investigation found that the officers did not contribute to Buckley's death."

A THUG who pulled a gun on a crowded bus and threatened to blow off a passenger's head because he had a white girlfriend has been jailed. Clifford Bryan, 35, pointed the imitation weapon at Leonard Oputa after branding him an "Uncle Tom" on the No 68 bus in Walworth on December 3 last year.

Third story on the page

"While crime overall is down across the city and the Parkway, it seemed like a week didn't go by this summer without some new, horrible act of domestic violence taking the life of girlfriends and wives. There were none more brutal than the death of Amelia Gomez, a 49-year-old woman who was chased down in broad daylight on Archdale Road by a former boyfriend and stabbed to death in front of a large crowd of bystanders." . . .

" 'He ran down after her and pulled her out and chased her around the car, stabbing her,' said a woman who asked not to be named. 'Guys - kids 17, 18 - were trying to stop him, but they were afraid he would stab them, too.' "

"The girl pleaded with him not to kill her during the hour-long ordeal, which happened while Roberts's wife was pregnant with their second child."

"Officials say Swiss Army knives, steak knives, saw blades and even a 22-inch machete have been smuggled inside. They say even small weapons, as well as drugs, are sometimes tucked inside tennis balls and thrown over the jail fence and into the recreation yard."

"Some of the contraband is destroyed at the jail. Other items, such as drugs and weapons are turned over to police."

"The jail remains in lock down while investigators try to figure out how the gun got smuggled in."

"Scotland Yard confirmed that Operation Tiller involved the biggest number of coordinated armed raids across the capital at any one time."

"It was designed to disrupt organised crime, including drug dealing, blackmail, extortion and gun crime - particularly within the Turkish Kurdish community."

"A Brooklyn cop is being investigated for Internet postings in which he brags about beating suspects, writing phony tickets and ignoring calls to his precinct."

"The officer, identified by Internal Affairs investigators as a patrol cop who works in the 75th Precinct, uses the pseudonym 'Brooklynbacon' and posts his messages on a site accessible through Xanga.com."

"Alongside pictures of motorcycle trick riders, naked women, photographs with comical captions and pictures of human oddities, he posts messages supposedly about his job and, in some instances, his own misconduct. Any one of the offenses he describes could cost him his job."

"In railing against an unspoken traffic ticket quota he says that officers must meet -- 10 tickets per week, he contends -- he writes: 'The new commanding officer of the precinct is pressuring us to write more and more tickets. We were officially told NOT to write anymore tickets for headlights and taillights. Most people fix the problem within 24 hours and the ticket would be admonished therefore the City of New York makes no money in the end.' "

This is apparently Sarah Brady's idea of paradise. A city where the citizens are disarmed and vulnerable to thugs like this.

"I won't be writing on drama ripped from the headlines this week. I will be writing on the drama silenced under terrifying government bureaucracy and elaborate funding schemes. It's not in the news. It should be." ...

"Yes, there is an elaborate funding scheme that has broken many families called the Adoption and Safe Families Act, of 1997, a baby of Hillary's. Sounds so positive on the face of it, as do many do-gooder social engineering bills. We want to create an incentive to place kids 'languishing' in foster homes in permanent forever families. So we will give "adoption bonuses" in the form of large grants to states that improve their adoption statistics. In 2002 nearly $15 million was doled out for this program,
($82 million since the start) which works out to between $4,000 and $6,000 in bonus money per child placed into an adoptive home."

"An alarming unintended consequence? More babies were being confiscated by Child Protective Services because they are more adoptable." ...

"Borrell told police that he forgot the weapon was in his carry-on luggage. He said Monday that he had failed to empty the bag that he normally takes with him on driving trips." ...

"Amy von Walter, regional spokeswoman for the federal Transportation Security Administration, said Borrell's weapons arrest was one of seven such episodes at a Minneapolis-St. Paul checkpoint since the federal agency took over airport screening in November 2002."

"...She added that Borrell did not receive special treatment when he was allowed to continue his trip. It is standard procedure across the country to allow someone caught with a weapon to continue air travel 'depending on intent,' she said."

Were this not an elected official, would he have been released and allowed to continue his journey?

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's. — Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp
