"It is sheer idiocy to pretend that the President or anyone else could possess a lawful power that magically appears as needed for every real or pretended emergency – a power for which he must never be called into question.

Does he take a modified Oath to the Constitution that goes something like '...to Protect and Defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic unless something comes up'?"

Major British paper calls for end to gun control!

"Given this scandalous situation, it is time for the Government to confer a new right on the people: the right to bear arms. Gun control in this country is in any case a joke. There is far more gun crime now than there was before the idiotic law..." -Simon Heffer, Daily Mail columnist
 

PA: Trooper shoots, kills woman

One of two State Troopers, responding to a call of a "reported disturbance" at a public housing complex, shot and killed a female resident when she opened her door "brandishing" a shotgun.

The police Captain says, "She pointed the shotgun at the officers."

A resident says, "Why not tell her to drop it, put it down? Even if she did have it (gun), that was her house."

KABA NOTE: Yes, it was her house, but she didn't have to answer the door if she thought it was a troublemaker claiming to be the police. Or she could have talked to them through the door explaining that everything was fine inside, or made them wait while she called their HQ confirming that they were, in fact, officers.

If they did announce themselves and she opened the door pointing a shotgun at them, what else could they do but defend themselves?

NRA spokeswoman Kelly Whitley: "one might be suspicious of a national study that ignored 40 of 50 states ... NRA tends to trust data on this issue from a more reliable source such as the National Center for Health Statistics. Their data shows that accidental firearm deaths, especially among children, have been declining since the 1930s and are currently at an all-time low while the U.S. population has doubled and the number of firearms owned has quadrupled."

"I bet you thought the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence just wanted to take your guns away? I did too. But they have another side to them. Their Executive Director, Thomas Mannard, seems to be a gunsmith and maybe even a full fledged engineer. Yep, he's spec'd out a wonder gun, the Mannard Gun, and he's trying to get a law passed to force us to use his design..."

"J.G. Smith expected one man to show up when he asked to buy an illegal gun. But the recorder hidden under his jacket and bib overalls suddenly felt as big as a phonebook when eight people met him inside a Muncie clubhouse ... The group, some of them members of a rogue outfit called The Lone Few, routinely threatened to search folks before talking business. Once they found a wire, retribution would be swift. Smith and months of a federal investigation teetered on the brink..."

"Jacksonville police said that a 13-year-old boy brought a stun gun on to a school bus on Wednesday."

The boy's mother said her son brought the stun gun as protection against a school bully. "He's been choked, he's been beat... and they do nothing about it."

School officials are reviewing his record, to decide whether he will remain at that middle school, or if he will be transferred to an alternative school.

KABA NOTE: A STUN GUN? Maybe they should execute him on the spot!

"Regarding the editorial, 'Legislature should close gun loophole' ... Let's be honest about all gun laws -- they are people-control laws with a central government taking away your personal freedoms. The 'dangerous loophole' you refer to in the 1994 Brady Bills concerns private ownership rights and that is why it wasn't written into law..."

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) concerns about the MEHPA include the fact that it:

* Strips individuals and families of rights and liberties

* Provides legal loopholes

* Ignores state rights

* Gives broad power to government and unelected "Public Health" officials

* Slows state ability to respond to an emergency

* Leaves key concepts (like when emergency can be declared) undefined

* Allows "authorities" to ration items, but does not specify how

What's in a name?

Far too often, a new bill bears a title that fails to reveal the meaning and intent of the law or gives a false idea of what the politicians and bureaucrats are REALLY doing to the Constitution.

Here we are speaking of the Shays-Meehan so-called "Campaign Finance Reform Bill," written by the liberal activist group "Common Cause."

Three months have passed since the Congress passed and President Bush signed into law the Aviation and Transportation Security Act of 2001. That law contains language allowing pilots to be armed under some circumstances. ... The final decision on arming pilots now rests with the president and his administration. Please contact the White House and ask President Bush to allow all airline pilots at all airlines to volunteer to be trained and armed with firearms.

Since then, a dozen Guard members from across the nation have contacted the newspaper alleging that commanders in their states have padded unit rosters with non-existent soldiers.

Montana Democrats have much to gain by clarifying their departure from the national party line on guns. -- It’s long been one of those dirty little secrets in Democratic politics. It’s certainly not something folks with Al Gore bumper stickers go around advertising. But the awful truth is starting to come out: A lot of Democrats in Montana are gun nuts.

Since, the people on the street become the victim of lawlessness they refer to the phrase "rule of law" in the sense of "lawlessness" in the country.

Ingebrigtsen said that in his view, law-abiding citizens have a right to bear arms given to them by the U.S. Constitution. "If applicants meet legal requirements and give me a good reason why they want to carry a weapon, I will issue them a permit. People have the right to be able to protect themselves."

"In the last 11 years I have issued several hundred permits, and on no occasion has anyone of those people been convicted of using the weapon in a crime."

The law can be broadly interpreted by local law enforcement, which has a considerable latitude in deciding whether to issue permits. Some Minnesota cities and counties don't issue permits at all.

"I'm reluctant to take the individual discretion away," Bemidji Police Chief Bruce Preece said. "Even though an individual appears to have a clean background ... (he or she) may not be the kind of person we feel comfortable with having a gun."

An amendment attached Friday to a Senate bill limiting restrictions on firearms in some public buildings would disarm public employees while allowing visitors to pack heat, the measure's sponsor said.

By deleting three words in Senate Bill 593, the House Militia and Police Committee allows local governments to bar employees from bringing firearms to work, but it would not allow localities to prevent visitors from bringing guns into certain public offices.

Called "Project Freedom" in Richmond and "Project Exile" or "Triggerlock" in major cities nationwide, the program makes use of a law that allows federal prosecution of crimes involving guns that at some point crossed state boundaries.

a growing chorus of critics call it a capricious abuse of an arcane federal law that allows prosecutors to target suspects in violent crimes they can't prove. The result, some say, is racist.

Hamilton State Sen. Joseph A. Inverso helped lead a rally on the State House steps to urge the Legislature to approve a so-called safe-gun law, employing technology that the weapons industry says is years away.

"We are not gathered here to say that guns should be banned in this country," the Republican lawmaker told the crowd that consisted largely of school children and mothers. "The law is aimed at handguns, not rifles or shotguns."

--What a joke of a Republican.
