"It's back. Legislation that would shield gun sellers from being held accountable for negligence in court was introduced in the House of Representatives."

"Last year the gun lobby's extremist allies in Congress tried to secure passage of the misleadingly named 'Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.' that would have granted broad and unprecedented immunity from civil lawsuits to gun manufacturers and gun dealers. It was defeated in the U.S. Senate after a lengthy battle." ...

"Legislation introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives would prevent further abuse of our nation’s courts when frivolous lawsuits against law-abiding businesses seek to blame them for the criminal misuse of legally sold firearms."

"Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Rep. Rick Boucher (D-VA) introduced HR 800 with strong bipartisan backing from 92 co-sponsors. In the Senate, S 397 has a total of 27 co-sponsors backing 'The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,' introduced by Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) and Senator Max Baucus (D-MT). The proposed new law enjoys support from business groups, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers and the National Association of Wholesalers, as well as organized labor whose members’ jobs are endangered by such reckless lawsuits that are brought against their employers with the intention of bankrupting them." ...

"The New York Times resident mouthpiece for the Brady Agenda, Fox Butterfield has filed a saccharine, angst-filled treatise on the 'Culture of Suicide' in rural America. No doubt hanging for dear life on the coattails of the latest Brady wet dream – the death of a National Guard soldier in Maine and the subsequent battle of his mother to shred yet more of our rights – Butterfield has penned a clammy treatise blaming the availability of guns on high suicide rates in Stevensville, MT and other rural American areas." ...

"A bill that would shield gun makers and dealers from being sued when the firearms they sell are used in crimes drew no opposition at a hearing in front of a House panel Wednesday."

"Legislative lawyers, though, say the measure is flawed because it clashes with citizens' state constitutional rights to take legal action to seek compensation for injuries."

"Rep. Robert Ackerman, D-Eugene, House Judiciary civil law subcommittee chairman, said the panel will rework the bill to try to resolve the conflict."

"Lawmakers need to protect the firearms industry 'from frivolous lawsuits aimed to run it out of business,' said Rep. Chuck Burley, R-Bend, the bill's main sponsor." ...

... "The truth is that the proposed law, Senate Bill 1363, is not about guns in bars. It's about signs on doors."

"Current law states that guns don't belong in bars or restaurants that serve liquor. That law is based on common sense, which makes it incomprehensible to today's elected officials."

"Some of them therefore would like to rewrite the law to say that a bar or restaurant owner must post a sign specifically prohibiting firearms or it would be presumed that guns are welcome." ...

"'The current law works fine,' said Bill Weigele, president of the Arizona Licensed Beverage Association. ..."

"It does, however, give new meaning to the phrase 'a shot and a beer.'" ...

"Michael Williams forgot his keys coming home Wednesday, but someone had already let themselves in."

"'And I came home early, and I didn't have my keys so I came around the corner and saw the window cracked, and he came in the room with the shotgun,' Michael says. The intruder was armed with a gun owned by Michael's dad. Some might run away, but not Michael."

"He pretended to have a gun, too."

"'I said I would shoot him, and he busted out in tears and gave me the gun and ran outside.'" ...

"In response to Stephen Mette's letter in the February 15th edition of The Post titled 'People need education, not weapons,' exactly what type of education did Mette have in mind? For the recorded history of man, we have tried to 'teach' members of society that murder and theft are wrong, yet they still happen every day in thousands, if not millions, of instances across the world. Obviously Mette has failed to realize that criminals don't follow the law. Criminals have no respect for the law and society, so why should they respect the right of an individual female to not be harmed?" ...

"I must disagree with LaKeisha Gantt's (Letters, Feb. 2 and Feb. 10) views on the two teens fatally shot as they attempted to rob an Oglethorpe County store last month. Gantt is using the same tired line liberals have been using for years, that it's not the fault of the poor criminals. Society failed them so they had to turn to a life of crime, and their acts aren't their fault."

"Drivel. No one forced those two young men to attempt a robbery. They made a decision to perform an act of lawlessness. Actions have consequences. In this case the consequence was an early grave. I have no sympathy, for they were not 'forced' into crime. They decided to rob that store and shoot at the owners." ...

"The mother of a 10-year-old Royal Palm Elementary student told police she had no idea how a loaded .380-caliber semi-automatic gun got into her daughter's book bag, according to a report police released Wednesday."

"Broward Sheriff's Office spokesman Hugh Graf said police continue to investigate the matter. He didn't know whether police have questioned other family members or neighbors, or whether they planned to. Nobody was arrested and the student was not suspended."

"Graf applauded the fourth-grader for notifying her teacher about the gun."

"'This is just a wonderful little 10-year-old who did what she should have done,' Graf said. 'This could have gone a different way. We could have been talking about a child hurt or killed.'" ...

"Ten days after an officer shot to death a 13-year-old who backed a stolen vehicle into a police car, the city Police Commission on Wednesday approved limits on when officers can shoot at moving vehicles."

"Under the revised policy, officers cannot fire at a moving vehicle unless someone is threatened with deadly force other than the vehicle. Mayor James Hahn pushed for the change after Devin Brown was shot Feb. 6 following an early morning chase."

"'Obviously we will never adopt a policy that would take away the officer's own right to self-defense. But this policy will give clear guidance,' Hahn said." ...

"Lawyers for David Passaro contend that provisions of the U.S. Patriot Act that stretched authority to prosecute cases shouldn't apply any places where special operations forces and CIA paramilitary operatives work."

"Passaro, who now lives in North Carolina, was former Special Forces soldier, was hired as a contractor by the CIA in 2003. He was charged in June with four counts of assault, accused of beating Abdul Wali with his hands, feet and a flashlight as he tried to get information about planned rocket attacks on U.S. forces. Wali died in his cell in June 2003. Passaro is not charged in his death." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A detective assigned to the New York Police Department’s Brooklyn North Anti-Crime Unit has pleaded guilty to attempted disseminating indecent material to a minor in the first degree, a class E felony.

Michael Lapine, 37, of Ronkonkoma faces up to four years in state prison when he’s sentenced March 12 in Westchester County Court.

The Westchester District Attorney’s office said that Lapine’s arrest was the result of an undercover Internet Pedophile sting operation conducted by the office’s High Technology Crimes Bureau.

It was alleged that between Feb. 4, 20204 and Aug. 16, 2004, he engaged in sexually explicit online conversations with an investigator posing as a 14-year-old boy. Lapine was arrested Aug. 16 when he attempted to meet the minor.

"The club, like others in Fairbanks and Juneau, is part of the Single Action Shooting Society, a 40,000-member group with chapters around the country and in Australia and Europe."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. Indeed I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order. — Adolf Hitler, April 11, 1942. (Source: "Hitler's Table-Talk at the Fuehrer's Headquarters 1941-1942", Dr. Henry Picker, ed. (Athenaeum Verlag, Bonn, 1951).)
