" I was told Dell was afraid I was going to use the machine for illegal purposes. When I asked why someone would think that I was told it was because of the name of my business “Weigand Combat Handguns Inc.”. Because I am involved in firearms I might be doing something illegal..."

GROVELAND — Two police chiefs whose officers fatally shot a Mascotte City Council member said Monday the officers would only fire their weapons if they felt endangered.

--Is this going to be the new mantra for accidental cop shootings - they "wouldn't have fired if they didn't feel threatened"?

Bobbie Ford says death threats and physical violence from an estranged husband forced her to sneak her three children to her parents' home. But that didn't stop her husband from carrying out the violence he promised. He shot and killed their three children, then himself on Saturday.

--The system is broken. This is what happens to sheep who can not see and will not believe. Justice is JUST US.

Submitted by: Doug Charette

HB183, as written, will eliminate the fee for the background check required to purchase a gun. This fee is nothing other than the government charging people to exercise a Constitutionally guaranteed right.

Rep. Throckmorton is onsidering offering a new substitute that would completely sunset the state BCI checks, and use the federally funded National Instant Check System.
 

KY: Don't Let HB97 Get Hijacked (NRA-ILA)
Submitted by: Doug Charette

NRA-ILA ALERT: "House Bill 97, currently under consideration by the Kentucky State Senate, is a common-sense bill that would allow sheriffs, deputies, and authorized law-enforcement officers to carry concealed firearms at all times. Since these officers routinely train with and carry firearms in the line of duty, allowing them to carry when off-duty makes sense."

A Broward County proposal to build a new "anti-terrorism" training facility in Markham Park has local gun clubs concerned about encroachment into areas currently open to the public.

"At this point, it could affect all of us or none of us," said Russell Simpson, who represents five gun clubs that use the range. "That's what we want to find out."

County officials say the building, which is under review by the city of Sunrise, will not affect park visitors or public gun range users.

The arrest in Belgium of international broker Sanvjivan Ruprah may be a major step in crushing an arms smuggling network that has catered to abusive forces in Africa and Afghanistan in defiance of U.N. sanctions, The Fund for Peace said today.

The arms trafficking ringleader Victor Bout, a former KGB official, continues to remain at large, despite numerous U.N. investigations that between 1996 and 2002 have exposed his sanction-busting operations.

"As an avid hunter and conservationist, I have watched with growing alarm the way the gun lobby and its political allies have insinuated their way into Wisconsin's outdoor sports.

We now see that the Wisconsin Conservation Congress has agreed to become a forum at its April meetings for Sen. Dave Zien's concealed weapon bill (Personal Protection Act, Senate Bill 357)." -- John D. See, Ph.D., Opinion, The Capital Times

--One of those guys who thinks the 2nd amendment is about hunting tells us why self-defense is so evil.
 

The War on Unalienable Rights
Submitted by: Doug Charette

The current power grab by the federal government characterized as campaign finance reform serves as the latest example of the government's war on the rights of American citizens. The campaign finance reform being pursued in the McCain/Feingold/Shays/Meehan legislation is blatantly unconstitutional in its attempt to stifle political speech protected by the first amendment.

"As a woman, could I or would I use a gun to protect myself in a dangerous situation?"

This question is one that I and other women who attended a Basic Personal Protection Class pondered. The class is the second step required to obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Michigan.

An event that brought this question to mind, said Patty Deifenbach was the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
 

Is the Democratic Party Anti-Second Amendment?

The following are excerpts from the current platform of the Democratic Party...

(Bill Clinton and Al Gore) “…stood up to the gun lobby, to pass the Brady Bill and ban deadly assault weapons - and stopped nearly half a million felons, fugitives, and stalkers from buying guns ... we need mandatory child safety locks, to protect our children. We should require a photo license I.D., a full background check, and a gun safety test to buy a new handgun in America.”

KABA NOTE: But it doesn't have to be this way. Democrats could someday vote in officials who comprehend the value of human life.

Back in December 2000, Clinton [&] Gore were busy fellows... So busy were they that they neglected to read some of the fine print in a cascade of administration-ending paperwork. One of these was an obscure item called the "Federal Data Quality....FDQA prohibits the use of junky science

The city of Novi would like to ban concealed weapons from its public buildings, but a 12-year-old state law may prevent it from doing so. Last month, the City Council introduced a proposed ordinance that would ban guns from its city hall, library and other public buildings -- following the lead of Ferndale, which approved a similar ordinance in November.

Law enforcement officers would still be able to carry weapons in city buildings.
 

NH: Bill targets mentally ill gun buyers

Some mentally ill people banned from owning guns can buy them anyway because New Hampshire officials don't report mental health records to federal authorities. But because the state doesn't collect those records, there's no way to know how many mentally ill people have purchased guns, according to Chuck Drew of the gun-control group New Hampshire Ceasefire.

KS: State 'historical society' bans reenactments of war or violence

This might have been "Bleeding Kansas" in the 19th Century, but visitors to properties managed by the Kansas State Historical Society won't see any blood.

Ramon Powers said the decision was based on "our general view of the kind of audience that we are trying to reach out to. "It really is not history itself," he said of re-enactments. "The real gore of battle is not represented. You could almost argue that we make violence appealing if we engage in it in this controlled way."

KABA NOTE: So much for "history".

Along the southern edge of Dogtown stretches a landscape of rusting decay. Here, amid the silence of closed factories, the only signs of life are mechanical: an old fence flapping on its hinge, ancient trains lumbering through gray rail yards, and cars whizzing down Manchester Road.

At one point, above a squat cinder block building, the observant driver may notice what has become a common symbol: concentric circles, red within white within red.

Wherever tyranny and despotism predominate, thinking and caring persons must evaluate the risks of speaking out. Will they be persecuted? Will they be thought of as radicals, as anarchists, or even worse? Will they be dismissed as unpatriotic and enemies of the "people’s"government? And isn’t the government of the United States of America a government of the people, by the people, and for the people?
 

IL: Democrat governor candidate Paul Vallas tries to hide anti-gun stance

As candidates for governor, Democrats Paul Vallas and Rod Blagojevich have nearly identical beliefs when it comes to the need for stronger gun control. But anyone who has been in Southern Illinois might come away with a very different impression.

Vallas' position on gun control is almost identical to Blagojevich's. Both oppose allowing people to carry concealed firearms and both support a ban on semi-automatic weapons. Vallas said: "The most critical issue is to get control of firearms."
