"National Rifle Association document...guns have absolutely no place in schools"

"No doubt about it: Lawmakers want law-abiding, permit-carrying gun-toters on Utah school grounds." ...

"That rankled some Democrats who tried to change the bill to an outright ban on weapons in schools, except for those carried by law enforcement or school security. They even quoted at length from a National Rifle Association document that makes the argument that guns have absolutely no place in schools."

"The NRA not withstanding, the effort to ban guns in schools failed in a 6-23 vote." ...

"Mead High School was locked down briefly after two boys with a backpack full of guns ran from a sheriff's deputy near the school."

"A student waiting for a bus about 2 p.m. Thursday was approached by two teenage boys, who showed him several handguns and a shotgun inside a black backpack. The boys asked where they could go shooting and then began walking toward the school."

"The student used his cellular phone to call the school secretary, who told sheriff's school resource deputy..."

But guns are banned on schoolgrounds. Surely there must be some mistake. Laws prevent such things from happening, right?

"The state Legislature is considering a timely bill that would increase the penalty for impersonating a law enforcement officer. We support the bill, and would support making it even tougher."

"House Bill 1304 by Rep. Bob McCluskey, R-Fort Collins, would change the crime of impersonating a peace officer from a class 2 misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine up to $1,000, to a class 1 misdemeanor. The punishment for a class 1 misdemeanor is up to 18 months in jail and a fine up to $5,000."

"A felony conviction also carries serious ramifications that go beyond immediate punishment. Convicted felons may not own or possess guns, for example."

"This issue is of tremendous interest in Larimer County, where a rash of incidents involving young men posing as police officers has rattled the public and shaken confidence in local law enforcement agencies." ...

"In the past, troopers could file traffic charges against an illegal alien and call the INS, but the INS was so short of staff that it wouldn't respond except in the most serious cases. "The immigration service says they must arrest 15 to 18 before they can respond," Sessions said. Andrews said he had stopped aliens without proper documentation but had to turn them loose because there was only one full-time INS agent serving Alabama."
 

Los Angeles County Settles Gun-Show Lawsuit (JTO report)

FULL TEXT BELOW...
-------
Los Angeles County, California, agreed to pay organizers of the nation's largest gun show $1.6 million in two lawsuits brought by show organizers who were banned from holding the event on county property, the Los Angeles Times reported Feb. 14.

In 1999, Los Angeles County passed an ordinance prohibiting the sale of guns or ammunition on county property.

Organizers of the Great Western Gun Show sued, saying the ban violated the First Amendment.

As part of the settlement, the ordinance will stand, but the county must credit organizers for rental costs.

In commenting on the settlement, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who introduced the ordinance, said, "I'm not completely happy with it, but it's a good business decision. I'm pleased that our right to determine what gets sold on county property has been affirmed. I'm not pleased that we had to shell out this kind of money."

Organizers of the gun show are considering Dallas, Texas, as the new venue for the event.

MO: House panel passes concealed weapons bill (another version)
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"Back for its 13th try, concealed gun legislation is again making its way through the Missouri Legislature."

"The House Crime Prevention and Public Safety Committee endorsed a bill Thursday that would let Missourians age 21 and older apply for a permit to carry a concealed gun. The legislation now heads to the House."

"Under the bill, applicants would be charged a $100 fee, of which $38 would go for background checks performed by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the FBI. The rest of the money would go to local sheriffs for their work on the matter. Annual renewal of the permit would cost $50." ...

CONSIDER...

$100 and $50 a year, plus background checks, fingerprints, etc. -- to turn a right into a privilege. Why so restrictive? Here is the main answer:

"Rep. Larry Crawford, the bill's sponsor, said he had worked with law enforcement officials to reach a compromise on some of the bill's language." Missouri law enforcement officials are lucky gun owners are inclined to seek civil resolutions. Their opposition to allowing lawful, peaceable people to protect themselves and their families without prior restraints certainly doesn't warrant civility.

Missouri Constitution Article I, Section 23:

That the right of every citizen to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or when lawfully summoned in aid of the civil power, shall not be questioned; but this shall not justify the wearing of concealed weapons.

"Teenagers re-enacting their experiences at a clay pigeon shoot sparked a major police operation. Officers closed the A30 near Exeter Airport on Wednesday night after receiving a report that a young man had been seen with what looked like a gun. The road was closed for nearly an hour while police, including three armed officers, slowly approached two minibuses parked in a lay-by and searched the vehicles and their occupants."

"No guns were found. It later transpired that the group of teenagers had been to a Westcountry clay pigeon shoot and were returning to the London area when their minibus broke down."

"Bored, but in high spirits while waiting for a recovery vehicle, the youngsters began re-enacting the fun they had had at the shoot using a jack and a piece of pipe as props. A motorist passing the scene mistook the props for a real weapon, and called the police at 4.15pm." ...

Tancredo recently caught heat from the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., because he had a link on his government Web site to Spencer's American Patrol Web site, which the Center has declared a hate group, according to Heidi Beirich, a writer for the Center.

Original Title: "Violence in the Middle East"

This article reports on where and how Jews are being violently attacked around the world. The United States attacks on Jews tell quite a story. Notice that all but one took place in cities where Jews, like all citizens, are banned from defending themselves in public places:

Temple Beth El in Syracuse, New York was gutted by explosion and fire on October 13.

In separate incidents, two Jews were attacked in a Jewish neighborhood of Chicago on October 12.

Five shots were fired at a Chicago rabbi while he was in his car. The rabbi escaped unharmed. In the same neighborhood, Arab youths shot marbles from slingshots at Jewish passers-by.

Arson attack on synagogue in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Yom Kippur, October 9.

On October 8 (Yom Kippur) in New York City, bottles thrown at Conservative Synagogue Adath Israel broke the synagogue's glass front door.

-------
If the American Jewish community would wake up and open its collective eyes, they'd discover that gun control is anti-Semitic. Instead of listening to the modern-day Judenrat at the "Anti Defamation League," they ought to be listening to Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.
