"While visiting at the Savage Arms booth, one of their representatives asked me if I had seen the LULA. After displaying my total ignorance of the product, she pulled one from her purse, and explained to me how the thing works, and directed me to the booth where they were displayed. There I received a demonstration of this little device, and immediately had to have one."

CT: Gun Accident Reveals Double Standard
Submitted by: Robert Kuhn

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"The recent accidental discharge of a handgun at the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts has made some Connecticut residents angry about the lawful presence of handguns in theaters. Typically, these residents don't support the ownership or carrying of firearms anywhere, not just in theaters."

"But the incident has also angered many civilians who hold permits to carry handguns - because the incident revealed a repugnant double standard."

-------
The gun owner was a police officer, so as the member of the "elite" he got a slap on the wrist. Meanwhile, misguided Connecticut residents are angry about guns being allowed in theaters, but not the fact that an alleged "trained professional" discharged it and got off with nary a punishment.

"One of the popular myths offered up by gun control advocates is that the police will protect us, so we need not make preparations to protect ourselves."

"But a horrible incident in Tiffin proves that the Ohio Constitution's framers recognized our right to bear arms for defense and security for a reason: only YOU can protect you."

"Every day that Ohio's Republican leadership waits to pass concealed carry reform increases the defenseless victim list in our state, and forces otherwise law-abiding citizens into making a choice between facing felony arrest or being unable to defend themselves."

"In a Columbus Dispatch article about the expected progress of Ohio House Bill 12, Ohio Highway Patrol Capt. John Born reiterated the OHP's opposition to any bill that would allow citizens their right to self-defense in an automobile."

" 'We do not want a loaded firearm readily accessible to the driver of a car,' said Born."

"When presented with the fact that a firearm is useless in a pinch if it's locked up, Born responded: 'If there's a dangerous situation and you're in your car, you can drive off.' "

Here is a short list of defenseless Ohioans who have suffered under the OHP's idea of self-defense.

"Unfortunately, a greater threat lies in wait. The Justice Department has drafted legislation (the existence of which it first denied even though copies have been made available to the news media) that would expand on the USA Patriot Act, enacted in the wake of Sept. 11, in chilling ways. If enacted as drafted, the measure would, among other things, lower the threshold for eavesdropping on individuals and groups and weaken federal judges' ability to force the government to provide legal protections to suspects."

"A measure of how arbitrary these new powers would be is a provision giving the attorney general authority to strip citizenship from Americans suspected of aiding terrorist groups. To get around the Constitution's ban on such a draconian step, the new law would make a presumption that, in (allegedly) giving aid to a terrorist group -- as declared by the attorney general -- a suspect intended to renounce his citizenship."

There's no greater threat to your freedom right now than your own government. Think about that next time you vote for one of the major party candidates.

"Our politicians and leaders have told us that the 'War on Terror' could last a very long time, perhaps years. For those who wish to suspend our civil liberties while we are at war I will give you something to think about. If the 'War on Terror' does last years, and our civil liberties are suspended during this time period, it will be just enough time for an entire up and coming generation to forget about the freedom and liberty they never knew they had."

Other countries, including Korea, Iraq, Russia, and China, maintain arms to defend their shores against invaders and those who would "…dominate the weak and intimidate the world. The two governments that do not maintain armies and weapons solely for defense are the US Government and Israel, a coalition of pure evil intent on destroying human freedom."

"He organized self-defense classes for students at Midland Lutheran College. He saw the need, sought advice and support, and then joined forces with another group seeking the same result. Krauer continues to work with the class, recently recognized as a campus organization." ...

"In the class, students are taught basic survival techniques needed to defend themselves, including pressure points, strikes and escapes."

Funny how the most effective tool of self-defense available doesn't enter this "self-defense" equation.

"In its unending campaign to add just a few more layers of red tape and inconvenience on the rights of Washington state firearms owners, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer recently endorsed Senate Bill 5317 and House Bill 1791 -- so-called 'child safety' measures -- and Senate Bill 5316 to close the so-called 'gun show loophole.'

"All these measures, while certain to appeal to those who love any kind of gun control, point to problems for which statutory solutions already exist."

"If the people ought to govern, then it seems obvious that a centralized administration like the U.N. is a danger to the freedoms of all nations and their individual subjects. Thanks in no small part, however, to neoconservatives, the founding idea of a government deriving its power from the consent of the governed continues to be ignored. Forgive me then if I state the obvious: The Bush administration is far more concerned with international supremacy than with national sovereignty."
