Feinstein tries to get reluctant Congress to renew 10-year-old law
Submitted by: J. R. Miller

"Gun control hasn't emerged as a leading issue in the 2004 presidential race, but that is likely to change as Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein intensifies her effort to win renewal of the decade-old assault weapons ban, which expires in September."

"Feinstein's bid should be as tightly contested and bitterly fought as it was 10 years ago." ...

"It banned the manufacture, sale and distribution of 19 specific types of semi-automatic guns that she says exist only to be used to try to kill large numbers of people with rapid fire." ...

"The 10-year-old law was painstakingly hammered out to get enough votes for passage. The guns it covered had to meet a so-called two-characteristic test, meaning the weapon could be banned if it had two features from a long list that included items such as automatic ammunition clips, a pistol grip, a barrel shroud or flash suppressor."

-------
Of course that socialist sow does forget that these guns have been successfully used in defending life and property in her own state in 1992 during the Rodney King riots.

And just what are "automatic ammunition clips"?

"Americans purchase an average of around 3.5 million firearms per year, usually 1.4 million rifles, 1.3 million handguns and 800,000 shotguns. Firearms are purchased and kept by around 20 million people for hunting. Another 20 million own firearms for target shooting and nearly 30 million folks have firearms for self-defense or home protection. Three million more Americans own firearms because they enjoy collecting them."

"Interestingly, the main reason given in the Police Foundation report for not owning a firearm is affordability, not safety issues or anti-gun sentiment." ...

"Media ignorance about firearms and the constant reporting of the negative use of guns are the major reasons why people fear guns."

"Disingenuous, duplicitous, dysfunctional bureaucrats at the Transportation Safety Agency are sandbagging the Federal Flight Deck Officers program."

"Pilots are angry… and Congress is angry."

"Obfuscating dissemblers are rejecting veteran pilots for failing to meet TSA standards, which appear to be arbitrary and capricious."

"The standards include psychological tests that claim some pilots are unfit to carry firearms."

"This is especially curious given the rejected pilots are apparently still capable:

* of assuming the awesome responsibility for multi million aircraft
* of flying the aircraft
* of the responsibility for thousands lives on a daily basis."

"Your Mini 14 or even the ordinary .22 autoloader behind the seat of your pickup truck must be turned in for processing."

"Gun shows would be a distant memory and the simple act of giving your favorite old pump shotgun to your grandson would be illegal unless the transfer was consummated at the local gun store. Hopefully the gun would never break because junior would be forced to purchase a federally licensed firing pin."

"Forget owning any type of military weapon for collecting purposes. That old Japanese rifle that Uncle Jim brought home from the big war would be illegal. It has a bayonet lug, you know."

Character, Integrity and the Second Amendment

"Freedom took it on the chin in Wisconsin recently when democrat state legislator Gary Sherman switched his vote at the last minute. Set to break a 130 year ban, the Concealed Carry Bill had passed both houses only to be vetoed by democrat governor Jim Doyle. Though the state Senate succeeded in overriding the governor’s veto, Sherman changed his vote and caused its complete failure at the last minute in the State Assembly. What would make Sherman do that, when he was one of the original co-sponsors of the bill? It certainly was not character, and not integrity." ...

"Sherman is a gun owner and NRA member, who in his words has supported Concealed Carry for a long time. Obviously, he was mistaken… or lying."

"The great problem affecting Americans these days is a mixture of apathy and anger over the growing realization that nothing they say or do matters. It is a growing sense of hopelessness as government spirals out of control and beyond their reach."

"What they see is a White House that (1) wants to loan $1.2 billion to the United Nations to renovate its headquarters in New York, (2) that signed agreements with India to accelerate the export of jobs, (3) that has proposed that Mexicans, here illegally, who take jobs from Americans, be granted a status that will lead to amnesty, (4) that has signed off on a profligate Medicare prescription drug plan that balloons this massive social program, (5) that offered a budget so packed with pork it promises an ever-growing deficit, and (6) that thinks it is the federal government's job to encourage marriage."

"It is a White House that (7) has totally taken control of education from states, cities and communities, and (8) is requesting more than $1.3 billion-up $22.6 million than last year---to underwrite still further efforts to 'conserve' more land, taking the power of communities and owners of private property to determine what to do with their land. It is a White House so seriously out of tune with its political base one wonders how it can think it will be re-elected."

"Brandy McKenith, a second-grader, was suspended from school for a day because she violated the Pittsburgh Public School District's no profanity rule in the code of conduct."

"What the little girl said -- and what provoked her -- is reminiscent of all the 'zero tolerance' policies that sometimes seem like 'zero judgment' by the administrators instead."

"One of Brandy's classmates said "I swear to God." Brandy warned him he could go to hell for saying such a thing."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Member for Northern Tablelands Richard Torbay has received an assurance that the handgun buyback team will visit Tenterfield towards the end of March.

The Handgun Buyback Scheme follows State legislation banning the ownership of guns which do not meet strict criteria on barrel length, calibre and magazine capacity.

When the Buyback crew of six visits Tenterfield the prohibited guns presented by licence holders will be measured, a price agreed, a cheque paid and the guns destroyed on the spot.

Mr Torbay said he had been assured that gun owners would be advised on the date and time of the Buyback visit very soon.

"That top cops preyed on their female civilian employees on and off the job, committing sordid offenses, and faced little or no consequence shows a deep state police culture of tolerating sexual misconduct..."

"Not knowing much about Moore except that he is rabidly anti-gun (as evidenced in his movie 'Bowling for Columbine') I approached the book gingerly. I, of course, think that the main problem with the Second Amendment is that it doesn't go nearly far enough. If you're going to have any laws at all regarding guns (which you shouldn't) they ought to require everyone have one." ...

"Although Bush didn't directly cause the 9-11 disaster the way Hitler caused the Reichstag fire, he's using it in exactly the same way – to get Boobus americanus all worked up, supportive of any law the government passes, and any actions they take." ...

"The first half of the book is very worthwhile, and will reaffirm your faith in the fact America is going to hell in a handbasket under the Republicans. The second half will reaffirm your faith in the fact America will go to hell in an even larger-sized container, maybe a stolen shopping cart, should the Democrats get in."

"The Virginia Senate has defeated SB 48, which would have placed a $15 tax on any private transfer of a firearm at a gun show and force sellers to register with the Virginia State Police. SB 48 defines a gun show as any place where 25 or more guns are offered for sale. This would mean any collector's home could become a 'gun show.' The bill was defeated by a vote of 21-16. There was a motion to reconsider, and the Senate will vote on this bill again tomorrow (10 Feb 04). Please contact your State Senator and respectfully urge him to vote against SB 48."

UT: Real people know more than fanatics about guns
Submitted by: Anonymous

"Let's be realistic: Concealed weapons are the Viagra of social dysfunction. And firearms trigger political acid reflux among certain socially supercharged activists."

KABA Note: Let's be realistic: Concealed weapons save lives, and firearms trigger panty-wetting incidents among the fascist cowards who depend on the government to protect them, instead of taking responsibility for their own safety.

"Many of us own guns, but we don't carry them around. We know enough about the dangers of firearms that we don't showcase them in holsters or the back window racks of our pickups. And we're concerned about those who carry guns near our family or friends. We suspect that anyone who needs a gun to feel safe is probably nervous enough to do something foolish with it."

KABA Note: And we suspect that the near daily reports of average citizens protecting themselves with firearms prove your hoplophobic rant not only bigoted and inaccurate, but also paranoid.

"Anyone with an I.Q. over 50 caliber knows that waving a gun at a criminal is foolish. Criminals aren't like the guys you see in the movies; criminals are more like the belligerent drunks you might see at a bar. Criminals do not act rationally; if they did, they wouldn't be criminals. Actually firing a gun in such situations is even more foolish. Only a few things can happen — all negative, except one. First, you can miss everything and everyone. That's the only positive outcome. Second, you can get yourself shot. Third, you can shoot or cause to be shot an innocent bystander. Fourth, you can wound your target and get sued, even if the target has a gun himself. Fifth, you can kill the target and end up in jail for manslaughter."

KABA Note: Tell that to Hale DeMar, who shot a career criminal in his home and successfully defended his family. Tell that to Richard Bussey, who didn't even have to shoot the criminal, but merely brandished his firearm. Tell that to Donald Carr, who shot an invader trying to break into his home through the dog door. Tell that to 53-year-old Carolyn Lisle, who shot an intruder in California. We suspect each one of these people, who refused to be victims will tell you where to stick your self-righteous paranoia about firearms.

Real people understand that guns are tools that can save lives. Paranoid fanatics try to take away those tools.

"Some of the most well known laws and programs having directly to do with alleged terrorist interdiction are the USA PATRIOT Act, CAPPS II, and MATRIX. None of these have had particularly smooth sailing, due in large part to their inherent unconstitutionality and extreme invasiveness. ..."

"Despite ongoing criticism and escalating defiance by local governments of the USA PATRIOT Act, the Bush administration continues to defend the law as 'necessary' to prevent terrorist attacks on American soil. In fact, the White House has let it be known that if Congress takes any action to repeal or mitigate any portion of the PATRIOT Act, President Bush will veto the legislation. Officials are also working to expand the Act."

"Some Idaho prosecutors say a federal law is forcing them to deal domestic violence cases down to lesser charges."

"And advocates say that leaves victims feeling cheated by the justice system."

"The federal law passed in 1996 says anyone convicted of a misdemeanor crime of violence against a spouse or partner will lose the right to own a gun forever."

"To keep their guns, people accused of domestic violence instead plead guilty to disturbing the peace. And in return, prosecutors can force abusers into treatment." ...

"...when defendants realize they could lose their guns forever, they are often only willing to plead to a crime that does not invoke the ban.

"THE BUSH administration must publicly recognize what many privately know: that as the all-volunteer military is not providing the manpower necessary to meet global needs, so appeals to the young for volunteer service are not eliciting the desired - even requisite - response."

"Those are the problems. The solution: one year of compulsory universal service, front-ended with 12 weeks of basic military training, for all men and women 18-23."

"No exceptions. Universal participation with universal basic military training - teaching all a vastly deeper appreciation for the military and its role in the protection of the nation. This would create a semi-schooled manpower pool from which the government could draw and train up in times of over-stretched forces such as these. Following military training, all could choose whether to remain in the military (if the military wanted them) or to complete their year in any on an endless list of civilian give-back service programs."

Maybe if members of the military were paid a decent wage and not sent all over the world to babysit warring militant factions and forced to play nanny to groups whose only goal in life is to kill one another, instead of actually defending and protecting America and her Constitution, more people would voluntarily choose it as a job or career, and people like Ross Mackenzie wouldn't propose unconstitutional involuntary servitude as a solution to our problems.

"It's been nine months and more than 15,000 permits have been issued since the new law passed, and opponents can't point to widespread trouble because of it. Nor can supporters say that public safety has improved markedly."

"During the last legislative session, before Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed the gun bill into law, the debate had advocates like John Caile predicting the community would be safer with more law-abiding citizens carrying guns. Certainly, he said, the notion of an armed public would scare off the bad guys."

"Opponents feared more gun violence."

"Public safety officials say there's no evidence to support either side."
