Gun rights advocates appeal to the Supreme Court

"Howard had built a recall coalition that included Ted Costa, head of People's Advocate, a principle group responsible for Proposition 13 and other tax cutting initiatives. Howard gave Costa the recall blueprint, convinced him to join the coalition, coordinated mailers and joint press conferences, and so on. Costa later went on to organize and lead the recall of California Governor Gray Davis."

"CAC and its supporters were harassed throughout the Roberti recall campaign. Death threats and intimidating phone calls were received. Break-ins occurred. Phone lines were cut. Supporters found their names printed in newspapers—along with insinuations that they were affiliated with white supremacists (Howard's maternal grandfather was a rabbi!)"

"In response to these criminal intimidation tactics, Howard made complete financial disclosures, but temporarily withheld selected identifying information in order to protect contributors from further harassment. For that, California's Orwellian-named "Fair Political Practices Commission" (FPPC) levied the largest administrative fine in American history against Howard and CAC treasurer Steve Cicero, $808,000 (now approximately $1.5 million with interest). That is over 10 times what CAC raised during its entire seven years of operations, and exceeds the total of ALL FPPC fines in its first 15 years of existence. By way of comparison, this is a larger fine than the Federal Elections Commission imposed on ALL DEMOCRAT PARTICIPANTS COMBINED in the 1996 illegal Chinese campaign contributions scandal involving millions of dollars, and that was a clear case of criminal conspiracy, with people fleeing the country to avoid subpoenas and prosecution!"
 

"Feminist" Democrat U.S. Representative Seeks Leniency for Rapist - because he's the son of one of her aides

. . . "Last July, a 20-year-old thug named Stewart Pearson soaked a rag in toilet bowl cleanser and Ajax and used it to smother 17-year-old Tina Phan while she was sleeping in her Terra Linda, Calif., home. Tina gasped, trying to fend off Pearson, but he wielded a knife and overpowered her ...raped and brutalized her." ...

"Enter [U.S.] Rep. [Lynn] Woolsey. ...the outspoken feminist and anti-violence-preaching Democrat attempted to intervene in the case. She used her official stationery to send a letter to the local presiding judge in support of ... the convicted rapist." ...

"What explains Woolsey's soft spot for this violent sexual predator? Pearson is the son of one of Woolsey's aides." ...

-------
This is the same Woolsey who received an "F-" from Gun Owners of America on her Second Amendment rights voting report card. So not only does this hypocrite help violent rapists go free, but she works to ensure that women are disarmed and helpless against them.
 

Mr. bin Laden, you're clear to fly

"Imagine if the world's most notorious fugitive, Osama bin Laden, attempted to board an airliner in the United States. Suppose he were clean-shaven, sporting short hair, wearing a pinstriped business suit and looked like so many other travelers that no suspicions were raised. How far might he get? If he used aliases such as names of family members, he would be nabbed instantly and whisked away for questioning. That's because many of his relatives are on the FBI's secret 'no-fly list,' according to intelligence sources."

"But suppose he boldly decided to use his own name. Would he be cleared to fly? Insight recently learned that scenario was tested at a U.S. airport in the South during January. The result was troubling: America's most-wanted fugitive is cleared to fly. According to airline-security documents obtained by this magazine, the name Osama bin Laden was punched into the computer by an airline official and, remarkably, that name was cleared at the security checkpoint all passengers must pass through before being issued a boarding pass."

"Imagine for a moment if some local public official started giving out gun licenses en masse because he did not like California’s oppressive anti-gun laws. The entire weight of the media elite and the state would be down upon his head. The irony is there is in fact a right to bear arms, as stated in the now ignored Second Amendment to the Unites States Constitution. There is no right to get married."

-------
But these same people who claim gay marriage is a right under the right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness umbrella have a double standard when it comes to protecting that life with a firearm.

"Even though a transplant is medically needed, U.S. officials in Manila are refusing to sign off on a temporary visa. They say they fear the donor might not go back home." ...

Meanwhile, Mr. Bush wants to give millions of people here illegally a free pass to stay -- even those who are violent felons in their own country -- and our nation's borders are so porous any terrorist who pleases can waltz right in.

"A 38-YEAR-OLD man was robbed at gunpoint by masked men who made off with his mobile phone."

"The victim was walking along Christchurch Road in Streatham Hill talking on his mobile at about 8.45pm on Monday."

"He had just finished his conversation when two men approached him from behind." ...

"Anybody in possession of a handgun presents a serious danger to the public and must be caught."

Right. It wouldn't be that someone actually USING a handgun to deprive another of life, liberty and property that's a danger, would it?

"A GUNMAN car-jacked a luxury four-wheel-drive in Brisbane's central business district yesterday, dumping its occupants and using the car for a daylight bank robbery."

"In scenes more akin to Los Angeles and South Africa, the BMW had stopped at a red light on the corner of Adelaide and Edward streets about noon when the car-jacker jumped in the back seat, cocked his handgun and ordered the driver to head towards the north coast. The car-jack driver and his passenger -- who wanted to be known only as Steven and Mark -- weaved through inner-city streets to Spring Hill, where their captor ordered them out."

OH: Ohio sniper and disarmed populace

"The case of the Ohio sniper is a perfect illustration of the dangers of disarming the public – and leaving crime-prevention and deterrence to the government."

"The sniper has been shooting at people and cars since November of last year. He is linked to at least 24 shootings, including one murder." ...

"The truth is that if you want to hurt someone in our broadly unarmed society today, it's not difficult."

"The American people have become convinced that the police can protect them from bad guys like the Ohio shooter. The truth is that they can't." ...

"But the Ohio shooter is more brazen. He uses a handgun, which requires him to get close to his victims – within range of other citizens armed with handguns."

"So far, apparently, not one of those witnesses or victims has had a firearm handy. It's too bad. Firearms can come in quite handy in situations like this – even more handy than the cell phone to dial 911."

"Some state lawmakers are convinced they have the answer to solve the D.W.I. epidemic and want to require everyone on the road to take a breathalyzer test before they can start the engine of any vehicle."

"Today, the proposal is one very large step closer to becoming law."

"A bill requiring an ignition interlock device be installed on every car, truck, bus or motorcycle in New Mexico passed the state house today and is on its way to the senate."

Who's going to pay for this fabulous mandate? How much more expensive will it make new cars? These devices are known to malfunction. What happens if the device prevents you from getting home during an emergency?

Maybe the lawmakers should submit to daily IQ testing prior to attending the legislative session.

A Wilmette man who was cited for violating the village's handgun ban after he shot an intruder in his kitchen has invoked U.S. Supreme Court rulings on sodomy and pornography laws to argue that the gun ban violates his privacy rights, his lawyer said.

Hale DeMar's attorney has asked a Cook County circuit judge to dismiss his case and order the village to pay DeMar's legal bills.

"I want the court to say, 'The Village of Wilmette cannot come into his home and take his gun under this ordinance. They are invading his right to privacy,' " --Robert Orman, Attorney for Hale DeMar's.

"A Senate panel Tuesday pared down a bill that would have given near blanket civil immunity to firearms owners." ...

"The original language would have meant no gun owner could be sued when the person's gun was used in a crime by another person so long as the owner didn't know a crime would occur. It did not differentiate between the gun being stolen or an owner recklessly giving the gun to another person." ...

"But Tuesday, the Senate Criminal, Civil and Public Policy Committee amended the bill so that immunity is only given to the owner of the firearm if the gun was obtained through a burglary, robbery, theft, criminal conversion or receiving stolen property."

"Gov. Jeb Bush displayed excellent marksmanship recently when he was asked about a proposal to free the owners of gun ranges from all responsibility for cleaning up lead and arsenic contamination. 'Blanket liability protection isn't going to happen,' he bluntly replied. 'Is that clear enough?' "

"Yes, it is. Unfortunately, the Legislature still seems to have its sights focused on pleasing the biggest proponent of the bill, the National Rifle Association."

"In recent weeks, key Senate and House committees have endorsed a bill that would block state and local governments from suing the owners of any of Florida's 400 gun ranges to force the cleanup of lead and arsenic contamination."

Either lock up or disable your weapon of self defense, which defeats the purpose of bringing it home for defense in the first place, or take some parental responsibility and don't leave your child unsupervised with the loaded weapon in the house. Which would you choose?

"Victor Gonzalez, owner of AAA Gun Shop, said CARIBBEAN BUSINESS that sales at local gun shops have decreased an estimated 6%. He attributes the reduction to a slow economy and to legislators who want to amend the law regulating arms possession without having enough information."

The Virginia House of Delegates Militia, Police, and Public Safety Committee rejected a bill that would have put a lifetime ban on gun possession for juveniles convicted of murder or rape, the Associated Press reported Feb. 15.

Currently, individuals convicted of violent crimes as juveniles may reapply for a gun permit when they turn 29.

In voting down the bill, the committee said it was too harsh.

Committee members voted to carry the bill over to next year so that further research could be conducted on the issue.

"When a school bus driver called 911 to report seeing several young boys with what appeared to be a handgun, Cape Girardeau police responded in force." ...

"The toy was dull black plastic, with a removable clip, and appeared to be designed to propel small rubber balls. The worst injury it could have inflicted would be to someone's eye, Schmidt said."

"But because it could be so easily mistaken for a real gun, it was a mistake for any parent to buy it for their child, Schmidt said."

Fact remains the gun is a toy, and confiscating private property because the cop just happens to think it was a "mistake" to purchase it is Gestapo tactics.

"Federal law, which requires background checks on anyone wanting to buy a gun, allows a gun dealer to deny a purchase if the buyer has a history of having been involuntarily committed to a mental hospital. Shamefully, though, Alabama law doesn't require officials to report involuntary commitments to the federal database used by gun dealers to screen purchasers."

"Fortunately, legislation offered by state Sen. Tom Butler of Madison would correct that terrible mistake."

-------
This law makes some broad assumptions. It assumes that anyone who has ever been involuntarily committed must necessarily be violent and dangerous and it deprives such people of their rights based on that bigoted assumption.

A group of kindergarteners in east Salinas were asked to bring toys guns to class Wednesday and get a new toy in exchange.

Two teachers at Alisal Community School organized the event as a way for teachers to show children alternatives to violence.

More 20 students brought plastic, toy guns to class. The guns ended up in the trash, and the kids got a new toy to take home.

Organizers said the event was a chance for children who have long associated guns with violence to turn a negative into a positive.

The teachers said the hope is that if children stop playing with guns now, it will be the first step in making responsible choices throughout their lives.

"Ehrlich (R) has personally lobbied senators to kill the bill, while Miller (D-Dist. 27) of Chesapeake Beach said he wants a ban to pass."

"A vote in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee had been planned for last week, but was postponed with the vote in doubt. Freshman Sen. John A. Giannetti Jr. (D-Dist. 21) of Laurel appears to be the sole swing vote on the committee and is the target of intense lobbying from both sides."

"Sen. Durell Peaden, RCrestview, sponsor of SB 1156, sees little concern. He has a military firing range in his district, and argues: 'It's hard for me to consider us having the two highest performing school districts if birdshot and lead cause brain damage.' "

"He and other shooting-range supporters argue that shooting ranges are a necessary part of gun ownership. Thus, it is 'backdoor gun control,' said Marion Hammer, lobbyist for the National Rifle Association, to regulate shooting ranges."
