"We should fear foreign terrorists less than we should fear our own leaders who are trying to destroy our Constitution and our way of life from within. I’ve got a flash for these people. Terrorists who hijack airplanes and murder several thousand innocent people with box cutters do not buy firearms from the classifieds, or obey gun laws!"

fourth story on page

Tulsa Mayor Susan Savage has approved a plan that would allow 806 full-time police officers to buy their soon-to-be-retired handguns. The officers could buy one of the .40-caliber handguns for $175. Police are retiring the 10-year-old weapons and switching to .40-caliber Glocks.

The city hasn't determined what it will do with any guns left over after the sale. The Department has a longstanding policy of destroying confiscated weapons.

KABA NOTE: If they are available to public servants, why aren't they available to the citizens?

VA: House Votes to Overturn Gun Ban

The Virginia House of Delegates today overwhelmingly passed a bill that would invalidate Alexandria's ban on firearms in city buildings and bar other localities from adopting similar policies.

The legislation is a broad measure to bar local governments from adopting laws or rules regulating gun use that have not been expressly authorized by state law. But its intent, supporters and opponents agree, is to overturn Alexandria's seven-year-old policy of barring guns from city buildings.

KS and MO in midst of concealed-weapon debate

The first shot rang out in Florida 15 years ago, and the advocates of guns for personal defense never let up.

From state to state the movement spread, a campaign to overturn laws against carrying concealed weapons and to give residents an opportunity to pack guns hidden in holsters or purses. The latest to go concealed: New Mexico.

A few years ago, Missouri and Kansas stood in the middle of the fight. Then, for a while, they fell to the side.

A woman who lives next to a Lenexa shooting range told state lawmakers Tuesday she and her neighbors worry that the facility could become a nuisance and should be under city regulation.

Lenexa lost much of its authority over the private shooting range last year following passage by the Kansas Legislature of a bill exempting all gun ranges from city land-use laws.

Supporters of the Modesto Junior College firing range have filed a lawsuit to press the Yosemite Community College District to review the environmental effects of removing the west campus range.

Don Clark, a retired MJC firearms instructor, and the Los Angeles-based Association for a Cleaner Environment claim the district violated state law by not completing an environmental report.

The lawsuit does not ask for money, but for a halt to the range's demolition, pending the environmental work.

Wisconsin residents who qualify for a permit would be allowed to carry a concealed weapon under legislation the Assembly approved early Wednesday after a weary and sometimes bitterly personal debate.

After more than four hours of debate, lawmakers voted 58-40 to approve the bill that would end the state's 130-year-old ban on concealed weapons. Rep. Jennifer Shilling, D-La Crosse, urged lawmakers to reject the bill.

A patron saint for handgunners? That's the distinction an Arlington, Va. group has in mind for St. Gabriel Possenti, who is credited with using a handgun to scare off a band of mercenaries terrorizing an Italian village more than 140 years ago.

John Snyder, founder and chairman of The St. Gabriel Possenti Society, has been lobbying the Vatican since 1989 to make Possenti the patron of handgunners.

California voters are for the first time giving GOP gubernatorial contender Bill Simon an edge in the polls, heading into the March 5 primary.

A Los Angeles Times poll of registered voters conducted between Feb. 20-24 showed likely voters evenly split between conservative businessman Simon and early favorite Richard Riordan, a politically moderate millionaire businessman and former Los Angeles mayor.
 

MD: 'Ban on Handguns Reduced Murders'?
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"A controversial law passed in Maryland in 1988 banning "Saturday night special" handguns may have helped cause a 9% drop in gun-related murders over the last decade," researchers reported on Wednesday.

"That translates into an average of 40 lives saved per year between 1990 and 1998," claims Dr. Daniel Webster, who helps direct the Johns Hopkins University Center for "Gun Policy and Research" and who led the "study."

KABA NOTE: Johns Hopkins is severely biased against private gun ownership, by their own admission. Their "study" is less than meaningless.

SUPPORT:

HB560 -- AN ACT relating to concealed deadly weapon licenses. Regarding out-of-state licenses. -- [This one seems to be rather dysfunctional as written, including HFA 1 which makes it worse. We agreed with the probable intent but wondered how it could be interpreted.]

HB492 -- AN ACT relating to concealed deadly weapon licenses. Regarding retired peace officers. -- [This cleans up the law to allow for free CCDW for some retired peace officers that were omitted before.]
 

MI: Pro-gun v. Anti-gun in Ann Arbor district Congressional race

In her uphill Michigan battle against the nation’s longest-serving congressman, a liberal Democrat from Ann Arbor, Rep. Lynn Rivers, will face off against a liberal Democrat from Dearborn, Rep. John Dingell, for a new district’s Democratic nomination in the November congressional elections because of Michigan reapportionment that puts two incumbents in the same district.

But, while both members of Congress are considered liberals, such appellations can be deceptive.

Closer cooperation between the Cincinnati Police Department and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has led to what police hope is the first of more federal prosecutions of city suspects.

After Cincinnati's violent summer last year, the two agencies said they would work harder to see if more offenders could be prosecuted through the federal system, which can offer more prison time.

"You don't know when you come home from work how many times your child has looked at your locked gun," Paul Erhardt, spokesman for the group said.

PA: State paid NRA lobbyist $12,000 to assess gun law
Submitted by: Doug Charette

A lobbyist for the National Rifle Association was paid $12,000 in state tax money last year by House Republican leaders to prepare a report assessing how well a 1995 state gun law has worked.

Rep. Dan Frankel, a Squirrel Hill Democrat and member of the House Gun Caucus, called the situation "outrageous." It shows that the NRA "not just figuratively but literally sits in the Republican Caucus," Frankel said.

KABA NOTE: What's outrageous about that? Legislators rarely know what they are reading (if they read a bill at all), so they pay 'experts' to tell them what it means. Nobody bats an eyelash when they pay ANTI-gun 'experts'. Nobody batted an eyelash that $1.4million in tax money was paid to fund the anti-gun "Olympics."

Dell is a major contributor to anti-gun groups!

I guess Mr. Michael Dell thought that he could pull the wool over the eyes of the pro-second amendment/pro-freedom fighters, and maybe he did for a "very short" time. But now he is going to see what "strength" there is in "OUR" arena.

An internal Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) memo detailing a shooting aboard hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 is not likely a mistake, as claimed, and the government and the airline may be denying the existence of a gun aboard the plane out of fear of being sued by Sept. 11 victims' families, charges a former veteran FAA special agent familiar with the memo and its source.

The bill would require handgun licenses and mandate the reporting of lost or stolen guns.
