"New Jersey's U.S. senators plan to introduce a bill that would make it illegal for anyone, except a police officer or military official, to purchase or use an assault pistol that fires bullets capable of penetrating a bulletproof vest."

"The Five-SeveN gun made by FN Herstal of Belgium has already been denounced by three national police organizations and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. The handgun is small and lightweight and easily concealed in a person's pocket, the groups said."

"Last month, the Brady Campaign released a videotape of its staff test-firing one of the handguns it had purchased from a Virginia gun dealer. The bullets penetrated a police Kevlar vest."

"Democratic Sens. Jon Corzine and Frank Lautenberg said the guns are a menace to society."

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) today condemned a sensational report on CNN that not only alerts potential terrorists on possible misuses of .50-caliber sporting rifles, but also literally provides a 'road map' on how to obtain one of these cumbersome and very expensive firearms."

" 'In yet another media attempt to demonize a particular firearm, which CNN's own reporter, Drew Griffin, acknowledged has ‘really never been used domestically in a criminal event,' this outrageous report still suggests to potential terrorists how such a gun might be put to criminal use,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb."

"To ensure survival, you should draw your revolver, taking a good two-hand grip, and, adjusting your stance and closing your non-dominant eye, concentrate on the front sight as you slowly squeeze the trigger until you achieve the perfect double-tap on the well-lit static paper target twenty-five feet from your shooter’s box, right?"

"O. K., so it was a trick question: you’re also supposed to back up to make yourself a smaller target."

"Wrong."

"If tyrannical 'government' is actually good for anything, it’s collecting statistics."

"...Let us not ignore his failed domestic programs and selective suspensions of 'habeas corpus' [the people's protection against unlawful imprisonment] along with the guaranteed protections of the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Tenth Amendments within the Bill of Rights. The results of his treachery should be obvious to all. Nonetheless, the Republicans have spoken with their votes, and in doing so they overwhelmingly gave the President an additional four years of opportunities to invade other sovereign nations and further assault the unalienable rights of all Americans."

"Bednar doesn't believe guns are a 'cure-all' for gay bashing. He does, however, believe that being armed helps even the odds."

"Both sides are telling us that Gov. Sonny Perdue has slapped a lid on the Legislature's efforts to ease restrictions on concealed weapons, so that hidden sidearms can be carried — by permitted owners — into many restaurants and some bars."

"No explanation was given, but we can hazard a guess. With the exception of a very few bills intended for the Republican base, this session's low-volume agenda has been devoted to: A) reinforcing GOP ties with a business community that will be funding the '06 contests; or B) convincing suburban women — now a key swing vote in Georgia — that they need not fear the excesses of GOP rule."

"Apparently, the concealed weapon issue didn't go over well with either 'A' or 'B.' Restaurateurs had nightmares over liability issues that come when 9mm semi-automatics mix with surly waiters and dirty spoons."

"Texans who carry concealed handguns would have their identities concealed as well under legislation that easily passed the House Law Enforcement Committee on Monday."

"The bill, which the House has passed twice but the Senate never has, would block requests from the public to learn whether an individual has a concealed-gun license. Law enforcement officials would still be able to access the records."

"The bill by Rep. Suzanna Gratia Hupp, R-Lampasas, a staunch gun-rights backer and privacy advocate, has the support of an unlikely alliance: gun-rights groups and family-violence organizations that tend to push for gun control." ...

Under Leno's bill, police departments that use Taser guns will have to report how much officers use the guns. Independent medical research on the effects of the guns would also be required. The bill will be introduced next week.

"It's the Democrats who are moving further and faster from their previous position on guns. It's a notable change from 1994, when the assault weapons ban passed with backing from President Bill Clinton and a Democratic Congress."

"That coincided with the beginning of a big decline in Democratic support in rural areas. The year the ban passed, Democrats lost control of the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years."

"Now Democrats want to reconnect with those voters."

"Two new Democratic leaders, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean, are examples of the party's current direction."

"The bill would give more teeth to statutes already on the books that protect gun clubs from criminal prosecution resulting from noise pollution if they are already in compliance with municipal and state noise ordinances, said Rep. Joseph L. Krawczyk, Jr., R-Bennington, a co-sponsor of the bill."

"Hopefully, it would prevent clubs from having to go to court and pay thousands of dollars in legal fees in cases they will undoubtedly win, he said."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There are other things so clearly out of the power of Congress, that the bare recital of them is sufficient, I mean the "...rights of bearing arms for defence, or for killing game..." These things seem to have been inserted among their objections, merely to induce the ignorant to believe that Congress would have a power over such objects and to infer from their being refused a place in the Constitution, their intention to exercise that power to the oppression of the people. —ALEXANDER WHITE (1787)
