NJ: Cops Want New High Capacity Magazine Rules
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"The state police, in their wisdom, have not disclosed why magazines that licensed dealers were allowed to sell are now too dangerous to be owned without further and expensive modification. Perhaps there has been some unpublicized rash of crimes committed by criminals using these magazines. Perhaps these crimes were too horrific for the public to hear of them, and the police prevented the media from covering what they otherwise would have treated by journalism's first rule: 'If it bleeds, it leads.' "

"Gun owners unaware of the new policy will become instant criminals. Let's just hope there are not so many of them that the state is forced to construct additional barracks for all the new state police officers who will be needed to arrest the new 'gun criminals'."

"There probably is no surer way to incite the passion of those who would bind us all by law to the range of actions allowed to the dullest retard (for 'our own good' naturally), then to merely mention the words 'kids" and "guns' positively in the same ... paragraph. For this reason, among others, I will endeavor to do this as many times as is possible in the following piece, in which I will address the eternally hot potato of kids and guns. However, I will endeavor to approach the issue of kids and guns from a somewhat different angle."

She had activated her security system and set it off, notified the police of recent suspicious events, and when called, the police were there in seven minutes. But she was dead."

"Nowhere is there a clearer example of the difference a firearm in trained hands could have made."

Less Guns=more crime...

NEW ZEALAND -- "A youth was shot in the face and a motorist escaped an apparent attempted hijacking last night in Hamilton."

"The youth was inspecting his vehicle after hearing what he thought was a gunshot."

"The bullet entered his cheek and fragments lodged in his jaw. He was taken to Waikato Hospital where his condition is not life-threatening. He did not see the person who shot him."

"A few minutes after the shooting, two men approached a car stopped at a red light. One man attempted to get into the driver's side of the vehicle, but the driver managed to speed away."
 

The Patriot Act and Free Speech -- The Fiction Behind National Security

"A week after the Naval Institute Press shipped three copies of Tom Clancy's cold war thriller, The Hunt for Red October, the FBI showed up. The FBI, which apparently got the information from the publisher, 'wanted to know where the books were and who purchased them,' says Johnson."

"The base is the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Under that Act's provisions, the government may conduct covert surveillance of individuals only after seeking an order from a special government-created secret court. However, that Court, in its first two decades, granted every one of the government's more than 12,000 requests."

"Then came the USA Patriot Act, drafted by the Bush administration, and fine-tuned in secret by the House and Senate leadership following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. ... How ironic it is that a President who says he wants everyone to read is the one who may be responsible for giving the people less choice in what they may read."

"I know Tim Weaver personally and consider him not only a friend and a Patriot but one of Arizona's top three most productive gun rights activists. I'd vote for him for Governor of any state in this nation. Tim won't tell you this, but he'd be taking a HUGE pay cut to assume the Mayor's position. He's tired of the city of Glendale, AZ disrespecting residents' rights -- that includes gun rights, tax abuses, election fraud and more." --Angel Shamaya, KeepAndBearArms.com Founder

"Citizens from across Maryland joined Attorney General Joe Curran and others today (Wednesday), and urged state legislators to support the Handgun Accountability Act of 2002, a landmark anti-crime package featuring a licensing measure for new handgun buyers."

"The experience of other states shows that licensing can help make it much harder for criminals to get guns before they commit violent crimes," said Maryland Attorney General Joe Curran.

KABA NOTE: Tell that to the Brits, Joe.

"Under the watchful gaze of United Nations troops, they took turns smashing their rifles with a sledgehammer. Afterward, they received a handshake, the equivalent of $15 in pocket money and the promise of vocational training in the months ahead — all part of a $31 million campaign to disarm and demobilize the thousands of young killers who have turned Sierra Leone into a slaughterhouse."

One watchful U.N. officer, however, wasn't celebrating.

"These can be repaired," said Lt. Col. Thomas Lovgren, a skeptical Swede who examined the battered guns. "That is the problem."
 

IL: Blagojevich Obsessed With Controlling Private Firearm Ownership

"While on the campaign trail in his quest for the Illinois Governor's Mansion, Rod Blagojevich has asserted time and time again that he supports 'reasonable' restrictions on firearm use and ownership."

[But he, like many gun prohibitionists, is a LIAR.]

"For example, Blagojevich has sponsored legislation that would ban most, if not all of the rifles favored by deer hunters in Illinois. Other federal legislation sponsored by Blagojevich would register sales of ammunition to target shooters and prohibit many of our returning war veterans from owning handguns."

"Who would ever have thought that a British paper would extol the virtues of private citizens bearing arms?"

"That is what readers of the London Daily Telegraph must have been asking themselves last month when they read Simon Heffer's article entitled, "If the state fails us, we must defend ourselves."

"It turns out, the state has been failing British citizens in a big way."

"Heffer documents several gruesome murders, the most recent involving a gang of young thugs who repeatedly stabbed an unarmed, 82 year-old lady to death."

"Crime has gotten so bad, Heffer says, that Brits like himself are beginning to reexamine their long-held assumptions about the government's role in controlling crime."

"When Andrew Wilkinson arrived at the Flagstaff Kmart Friday morning, he and his fellow employees were greeted via videotape with the bad news: The store was closing."

"Our manager called everybody in and put on a video from the CEO," Wilkinson, 18, said. "He said he was sorry he couldn't be here, but with so many stores closing, it wasn't possible."

Rosie put 'em in the dumpster, and Spike Lee couldn't pull 'em out. Goodbye, KMart. Shoulda respected your gun-owning customers.

"At their core, potato guns are simply too dangerous, insists California Assemblyman Jay La Suer."

"Police were called to the motel on a report that a man was going crazy and breaking out windows. Officers were told Hammick might have a gun, although no gun was found."

"When police entered the room, Hammick was on the floor with the child in a 'bear hug.' He was shot four times."

"If three trained public police officers cannot subdue one suspect that's half on the ground, that has no weapon," Tate said, "then we've got a strong problem."

"Last weekend, the club's patrons ranged from a female St. John's College teacher practicing for hunting season to a couple of midshipmen taking target practice."

"Every single kind of person you can imagine does it," said Alexis Doster, a writer for Smithsonian magazine who was checking out the club before deciding whether to join. "From doctors and lawyers to welders, you just can't stereotype people who like to shoot."

"One thing they do have in common, however, is their distaste for many of the gun laws in Maryland."

"A suspended Pennsylvania state police commander and two friends will stand trial on charges they conspired to sell stolen police gear on the Internet."

"39 year-old Sergeant James Murphy is accused of stealing more than $9000 worth of gear, including a missing straitjacket that he was assigned to investigate in 1997 and never found."

"Authorities say his friends...and his wife...helped him sell the items on eBay."

"Authorities believe Murphy needed to sell the items because he was going through a costly divorce. Murphy's attorney says all his client did was sell items that were no longer useful, and says other troopers do the same thing." [emphasis KABA's]
 

NRA says guns "should be inaccessible to children"

"The National Rifle Association and Patton have the following advice for parents who have guns in their houses."

"First, the firearm should be inaccessible to children."

"The gun shouldn't be loaded, he said."

KABA NOTE: That advice is what got two kids killed when their older sister tried to get at a locked and unloaded gun to use it for self-defensive purposes. She knew how to shoot, but California's law banned child access to firearms, so the family took the NRA's above advice. RESULT: She watched her siblings get pitchforked to death.

"Sue Gay lives in South Bend, Indiana, and she is alive today-thanks to her 11-year-old grandson."

"And, thanks to the fact that she doesn't believe in locking up her safety as many anti-gun gurus in Congress would have her do."

"When Tony 'Casper' Murry held a box cutter to Sue's neck one night this February, the fifth grade boy had to think quickly."

"He ran to an upstairs bedroom to grab a gun and then flew back down the stairs with a .45 in hand. He stood 'ready stance' with the gun, Sue said. She demonstrated her grandson's pose as she spread her feet apart and held her hands outstretched as if holding a handgun."

"The boy shot one round and hit Murry, 27, in the chest, even though the man was shielding himself with the grandmother."

"I don't know how he did that," Sue said. "One shot and he got him. He's my little hero."
