Submitter's Note: Governor considers whether to expand the right of Citrus-americans (Floridians) to shoot in self-defense when away from their homes. There is a poll on the headline page for those who wish to contribute to the debate.

-------
"Legislation that protects homeowners from prosecution when they shoot an intruder would expand the protection to people who shoot in self-defense anywhere else."
 

How's This For Patriotism? NRA to Fight Miniscule Fee that Would Help Law Enforcement, Says Brady Campaign

"The National Rifle Association likes to wrap itself in the American flag and portray itself as the last line of defense against terrorism as well as the ultimate defenders of America's freedom."

"What price freedom? According to the NRA, asking for two cents from people who want to buy explosives is too much."

"The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the NRA is in a dither over a Bush Administration recommendation to enact a user fee of two cents per pound of explosives to fund the Justice Department Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, because explosives that warrant the user fee might include gunpowder. Translated to a purchase of ammunition, the fee would amount to slightly less than a penny per $7 box of .38 slugs."

-------
KABA Note: No. Extorting ANY amount of money from people who merely wish to exercise their fundamental rights to fund an entity which threatens to destroy those rights is indecent.

"Together with other NGOs based at the UN in New York, Amnesty International is calling on governments to universally reaffirm all three of these human rights documents, to re-commit to full and prompt implementation at the national level, and to emphasize the integral connection between respecting women's human rights and realizing the Millennium Declaration and Millennium Development Goals. ..."
 

Right to Own Or Use a Gun

"My position on this issue is a divided one. Guns in America are like Weird Al Yankovic at the Grammys: Sure they're invited, but should they really be there? They're constitutionally protected, which is hard to mess with. They are considered a right, and since many of our civil liberties are similarly given through this almost sacred document, firearms should be treated as any other right. Logically, though, and without a second thought of historical significance or American policy, guns in the sense of humanity are not necessary. ..."

"Shooting for sport is pretty much the only thing I would see as being a culpable excuse for owning a gun. ..." -- KABA Reply: Congratulations. You and the Nazis have something in common.

"Do minorities have a moral right—and even a moral duty—to resist mob violence? The history of black people in America over the past century suggests that doing so may be necessary in order to protect civil rights." ...

"Sometimes, as in Memphis, the mere presence of armed blacks constrained white police or mob behavior. In other cases, armed blacks were partially successful; during the 1906 Atlanta riots, according to historian John Dittmer's Black Georgia in the Progressive Era, although blacks 'were unable to offer effective resistance when trapped downtown or caught in white sections of the city, they did fight back successfully when the mobs invaded their neighborhoods.'

"I found the opinion 'Lose the First Amendment? We're as good as lost' interesting, not because a journalist was lamenting the opinions of a some teens that the First Amendment 'goes too far' - because after all, the First Amendment IS a journalist's bread and butter, and without it, many would be censored for writing 'not-government-approved' news and opinions!"

"Mainly, I found the opinion interesting, because for too many years, too many journalists have been openly hostile to the Second Amendment ...Because of decades of hacking and chopping at the Second Amendment, the rest of the Constitution has been chipped away also - because if gun control can be enacted by a bare majority, overriding a Constitutional Amendment - then ANY of the Amendments can be set aside!"

"The 16-year-old boy was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, a small hunting knife on his belt, and the mother was arrested for assaulting a police officer, even though witnesses say the man's badge and gun were not in a place where they easily could be seen."

"No rape victim should have to sit down in front of a strange man in a sheriff's office to describe her trauma, or have her accusations called into question, in order to be able to obtain a legal means of protecting herself. No victim of assault, upon learning that his attacker has been release from prison, should have to wait up to 45 days for a sheriff to approve his CHL."

"Closed circuit TV systems are of little use in the fight against crime, a surprise government report claims today."

"Home Office researchers who studied 14 schemes across Britain found that only one had brought a clear fall in the local crime rate."

"While there was strong public support for CCTV before it was installed, opinion began to shift when people realised the cameras made little difference."

"And researchers found that some of the schemes were botched, making them less effective. Six of the 14 control rooms were left unstaffed for part of the day or night. And in some cases, cameras could not capture clear images at night due to the glare from artificial lights." ...

"To avoid potential hearing damage, never shoot directly over a gundog."

"A realistic concern for all wingshooters using a hunting dog in the field is protecting the dog's hearing from the damaging effect of the shotgun blast."

"Now I do realize that some gundogs, point breeds and retrievers alike occasionally experience what is best described as 'selective hearing.' "

"This type of hearing malfunction usually occurs when our gundogs are emotionally involved on a retrieve or hunting some distance away. Our fine hunting companions simply opt to ignore the whistle."

A referendum on a new gun law has been scheduled for Oct. 2. The proposal calls for psychological exams for every prospective owner, and would raise the minimum age for owning a weapon from 21 to 25 years."

You might be interested to know this matter is now all over the blogosphere, with the local blog mASSbackwards.blogspot.com leading the charge."

"I'll just say this on the matter. Here in Massachusetts, we have some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, and quite a bit of crime. Right above us in New Hampshire, they have some of the most lenient gun laws in the nation, and right next to that in Vermont, there are the single most lenient gun laws in the nation.

"An Alameda County jury awarded the damages in 2003 to Brandon Maxfield two weeks after concluding that a Costa Mesa gun maker, Bryco Arms Inc., was partially liable for the accidental shooting of the boy when he was 7."

"Maxfield was shot in the jaw with a .38-caliber handgun that a family friend was trying to unload. The Court of Appeal ruled that the verdict was supported by evidence that the trigger was pulled inadvertently."

"Maxfield has been unable to collect damages because the defendants filed for bankruptcy the day after the verdict, according to his lawyer, Richard Ruggieri."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
