"This week, more than 100,000 people from 30-plus countries packed the Las Vegas Convention Center for the 24th annual Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trades Show."

"The SHOT Show, where worldwide retailers buy what they hope to sell us next fall, is attended by the oldest and newest manufacturers of anything and everything related to its theme. Hundreds of industry newcomers stood alone and hopeful in modest 10x10-foot booths."

"Gun manufacturers launched hundreds of new models." -- and nobody got shot. If guns cause people to be shot, how can that be?
 

AZ: Panel backs bill on legal immunity to shooting ranges
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"A Senate committee voted Thursday to give outdoor shooting ranges immunity from noise complaints and lawsuits if they meet new state standards."

"The Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment Committee approved the bill on a 4-1 vote, sending it to the full Senate."

"Critics said the bill (SB1008) goes too far, leaving property owners and developers with complaints about shooting range noise with no recourse in the courts and no leverage in negotiations with ranges."

KABA NOTE: This bill is a compromise, backed by the NRA, that leaves the door wide open to place numerous restrictions on shooting ranges that have been in operation for half a century. May the bill and any others like it die a gruesome death until some REAL shooting range protection comes to the Arizona legislature.
 

Appeals Court says shoplifting cannot lead to life sentences in California

"A federal appeals court nullified part of California's three strikes law Thursday, ruling it is cruel and unusual punishment to sentence people to life in prison for shoplifting."

"The ruling overturns 340 sentences for California defendants serving life terms for shoplifting under the three-strikes law and is expected to spark a wave of appeals by other inmates sentenced to life terms for other nonviolent offenses."

"In the three-strikes case decided in November, the judges did not indicate what sentence would be considered constitutional for shoplifting. That means more litigation will follow in that regard."
 

College Plans to Question Lying "Historian" Bellesiles -- It's About Time!

"A disputed, prize-winning book about the role of guns in the United States will undergo a formal inquiry from Emory University, where author Michael Bellesiles is a professor of history."

"In a statement released this week, Emory official Robert A. Paul said that the Atlanta-based school has initiated a process for "addressing allegations of misconduct in research."

"Bellesiles has been accused of ideological bias, selective scholarship and misleading statements. He has acknowledged some errors, but defends his book as fundamentally sound."

"A parent who locked up his firearms and stored the ammunition separately appears to have thwarted his son's plans for a school shooting this week in Indianapolis, Ind."

"According to The Indianapolis Star, the 13-year-old told school officials that he was planning on going home, getting his father's gun, and returning to school to shoot two educators and ten of his
classmates who had been bullying him."

"Victoria Reggie Kennedy, president of Common Sense about Kids
and Guns, applauds this responsible parent who properly stored his
firearm and ended up saving lives."
 

HUMOR: Congress Hears Fresh Calls for Axe Control

This is a satire that draws more than a few parallels with the gun control movement - not to mention including some wonderful puns! ...

"The Paul Bunyan Campaign for Axe Safety Thursday called on Congress to examine ways in which axes, hatchets, mauls and other handled cutting implements contribute to violence in America."

"The group, long known for its efforts in promoting axe control, cited U.S. Product Safety Commission data showing that 14 children are hurt or killed by axes each day in the U.S., with teenage children particularly at risk."

"How many more children have to die before Congress will enact sensible axe control?" asked Bunyan Campaign Executive Director George Herman "Babe" Bleauoxski. "The time for axe safety is now."

Officer fumbles gun, shoots student

ANOTHER REPORT IS IN TODAY'S NEWSLINKS, AS WELL....

"A 10-year-old boy was grazed in the right cheek by a bullet when an off-duty police officer conducting a school demonstration dropped her gun Wednesday, officials said."

"The boy was released after treatment at Temple University Children's Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Jennifer McGowan said."

"The officer had shown the magazine clip to the class at Imani Education Circle Charter School and had just put it back in the gun when she dropped the weapon, Principal Francine Fulton said."

Where did this officer get her firearms training? HCI?
This story aired on my local Fox channel at the end of the broadcast for less than 30 seconds. If it were a private citizen it would have been emblazoned across the headlines.

KABA NOTE: Why is it that when a stupid fool who happens to have a badge and works for the government shoots a kid in the face, CNN's report is a brief four paragraphs, but when a stupid citizen does the same thing, it's all over creation as "breaking news" -- and the report runs over and over and over again until you've got it memorized?

WOW! This guy actually did some research and makes an attempt (not fully successful) to promote gun-show background checks based on REASON!

Mind you, I don't agree with him, but to have actually visited a gun show before writing this column is a heck of a surprise.

That's kind of a sad commentary on the state of American journalism, isn't it?

"Already passed by the Utah House of Representatives, the bill defines the crime of 'commercial terrorism,' which can be a felony offense. The Bill reads, 'a person is guilty of commercial terrorism if he enters or remains unlawfully on the premises or in a building of any business with the intent to interfere with the employees,customers, personnel, or operations of a business.'"

"The Bill seriously undermines First Amendment Rights - in its current form, historical leaders such as Sam Adams, Rosa Parks, Ghandi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. would be considered terrorists."
 

CO: Police Investigation Continues Into Officer Inactivity At DIA

"Denver Police are denying a request to release logsheets for police officers assigned to DIA. It is the latest in a NEWS4 Investigation that uncovered apparent loafing on the part of at least eight officers assigned to the airport."

"We wanted those logsheets so we could compare what officers said they were doing at DIA with what we actually saw and recorded."

KABA NOTE: We'd like the news organization conducting the investigation of these cops to turn over their logsheets to make sure the talking heads aren't loafing at the coffee pot or in the production room. (Can you say, "We ain't got nothin' better to do, so let's harass the cops assigned to the boring, monotonous but necessary jobs?") Of course those law enforcement officers wouldn't be needed if Americans could pack heat anywhere they go, unencumbered by the unconstitutional gun "laws" with which our people are being put in jail.

"Two weeks ago, I wrote about the expulsion hearings for three Lake Oswego High School boys with Air Soft guns. I took the side of the boys, saying they should stay in school."

"The e-mails I got were half pro and half con. Most who disagreed with me were civil in their arguments, but some were downright ridiculous."

"One reader tied my siding with the boys to being a raving conservative. I wrote that the guns and their lime-green plastic BBs weren't weapons. She thinks that's the same as me toting a gun rack in my station wagon. Beats me how she made that leap."

"The Palatine High School people evidently have this view that those who are Second Amendment supporters are mentally ill."

"When the Palatine High School found that student Patrick Bryant dared to have pro-Second Amendment materials in his school locker they expelled him. However, since they are 'compassionate liberals,' they stayed the expulsion as long a Patrick was enrolled at Connections Day School, a school for students with emotional and behavioral problems."

"Though a judge has ordered Patrick be reinstated, Palatine High School has refused to readmit him."

New Gun Rule Bars Some Foreigners

"The Bush administration has adopted a temporary rule barring certain foreign visitors, workers and students from buying guns or ammunition in the United States."

"While changes were under consideration for several years, the action by the Treasury Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was accelerated by the Sept. 11 terror attacks, government officials said."

"That should help ensure that people whose visas have expired won't be able to buy a gun in this country, officials and a gun-safety group said."

KABA NOTE: That's funny -- you can buy black market guns in any major city in America, and sellers don't generally ask for you papers, just your cash. Next they'll tell us that the ban on cocaine and marijuana is successful, too.

"A U.S. Forest Service investigation into misleading hair samples sent to a laboratory concludes the action did not undermine a rare-lynx survey, The Spokesman-Review reported yesterday."

"The newspaper obtained the report, which was completed for the Forest Service by Stephanie Lynch, an independent investigator from Portland."

"The scientists had wanted to test the University of Montana lab to see whether its DNA work was accurate."

"Critics of the federal Endangered Species Act have questioned whether the scientists were trying to show lynx have a large range. That could lead to broad restrictions on logging and recreational activities thought to harm the cats' habitat."

"The business of surveillance is about to undergo a radical shift as digital cameras become commonplace. Even now, CCTV is the ever-present eye in shopping centres, railway stations and airports and it is most definitely watching you."

"According to statistics, the average citizen is caught on CCTV cameras 300 times a day."

WA: New law in Redmond targets shooting range; gun club sits in area the city plans to annex

"Redmond doesn't have a shooting range, but that didn't stop the City Council from unanimously adopting an ordinance this week that requires licenses for such facilities."

"The ordinance is in response to city and residents' concerns about the safety of the Interlake Sporting Association. The gun club was recently shut down by the King County Department of Licensing while the King County Sheriff's Office investigated a report that a stray bullet had landed in the parking lot of a nearby business."

"This is the second time the sporting association, formerly the Interlake Rod and Gun Club, has been shut down. It was closed for six months in the fall of 2000 over another stray bullet and was required to make changes to its pistol range before reopening last February. The nonprofit association, at 13633 N.E. 97th St., has been around for 54 years."

"California is taking another step to combat terrorism."

"Within months, armed California Highway Patrol officers will fly on many commercial flights within the state."

"The plan is similar to the federal air marshal plan, in that armed officers will be on planes to battle would-be terrorists. But in the state plan, the officers will only work flights that they are already taking as part of their job."

"The California Highway Patrol will not be on every in-state flight," Davis said. "But when they do fly, they will fly in plainclothes, so neither the passengers, nor more importantly, would-be terrorists, will know whether or not they are on an individual flight. Traveling in plainclothes should provide an additional disincentive to terrorist activity."

KABA NOTE: The same is true of armed citizens, Mr. Davis -- the ones whom you believe to have no right to keep and bear arms.

"Hold on to your wallet. The United Nations is gearing up for a ritzy get-together at a Mexican resort to discuss ways to pick your pocket."

"Specifically, the U.N.'s upcoming 'Financing for Development' conference is meant to boost foreign aid spending. To finance their scheme, the bureaucrats want to create a World Tax Organization with the power to impose global taxes."

"U.N. bureaucrats still believe big government is a magic elixir, whatever the ill. They're peddling the same snake oil to the Third World, but their prescription — more government handouts — is a recipe for failure. And they want the United States to pick up most of the tab."

Ashcroft also remove himself from firearms policy decisions, as he benefited from more than $370,000 in campaign contributions from the gun industry and the NRA.

"Don't shoot deer after dark, especially with a light, and don't have a loaded rifle or shotgun in your car."

"Now you are familiar with Vermont's gun laws, according to Bennington Police Chief Richard B. Gauthier."

"Speaking from a law enforcement perspective, I like it that way," said Gauthier. He believes that openness, awareness and education about guns results in a community where gun violence is not as prevalent as in others.

"Although Vermont has one of the highest per-capita gun ownership rates in the country, Gauthier said Vermont has one of the lowest per-capita violent crime rates in the country."

"It's a true-life modern-day David-and-Goliath story with the victor still undetermined. Struggling against international mining interests and the governments of Papua New Guinea and Australia, the people of the South Pacific island of Bougainville are the underdogs in a decades-long struggle for self-determination."

The bullies in this tale are doing their gut-level best to disarm the underdog -- and the UN is oddly quiet and complacent over the rights of local, indigenous peoples.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
You are bound to meet misfortune if you are unarmed because, among other reasons, people despise you....There is simply no comparison between a man who is armed and one who is not. It is unreasonable to expect that an armed man should obey one who is unarmed, or that an unarmed man should remain safe and secure when his servants are armed. In the latter case, there will be suspicion on the one hand and contempt on the other, making cooperation impossible. — Niccolo Machiavelli in "The Prince."
