... "Anti-gun sentiment is alive and sick in America today. For many gun-banners the end justifies the means. Unlawful arrests, unusually high bail charges, harassment, inventing crimes that serve no purpose, and forcing law-abiding gun owners into financial bankruptcy as a result of defending themselves in court are perfectly within reason to gun banners. These anti-gunners are operating within every segment of our society including law enforcement, the judicial system, the media, and the education system."

"As gun owners, it is imperative that we stick together and protest the unlawful arrest and prosecution of gun-owners who have harmed none. This is the next wave of the gun-rights movement."

"An Illinois gun rights group Tuesday called Chicago Democratic Mayor Richard Daley 'delusional' for demanding that all 1.5 million firearm owners in the state appear before him and explain why their weapons should not be banned or confiscated."

"While acknowledging that Daley's statement comes in the wake of a pair of shootings in the city that left two young girls dead, Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA), nevertheless said that the mayor's outburst 'suggests strongly that it's time to pad the walls' of his office with rubber." ...

"It’s a good thing that the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence released its 2005 Gun Violence Prevention Report Cards before the Indiana legislators passed a wrong-headed bill granting Hoosiers lifetime gun permits. The ludicrous move would have guaranteed state officials a failing grade."

"As it is, Brady gives Indiana a D."

"For the last nine years the Brady Campaign has released the annual report grading state efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and protect children from gun violence. To our dismay, Gov. Mitch Daniels has already said he will sign the legislation authorizing lifetime gun permits. When he signs it, Indiana will be the first state in the union with such permits."

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) today congratulated the Kansas Legislature for passing legislation that will finally allow law-abiding citizens to legally carry concealed firearms for their personal protection."

"'Despite a threatened veto by Democrat Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, Kansas lawmakers took a courageous vote and proved they are willing to butt heads with the anti-gun media and the shrill voices against self-defense,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan M. Gottlieb. 'If the governor carries through on her threat to once again leave her constituents, friends and neighbors defenseless against criminals, we hope the Legislature swiftly and decisively overrides that veto.'" ...

"The Kansas Legislature is poised to send another concealed-weapons law to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius."

"The House gave the proposal an initial endorsement Monday. A final vote is set for today. The measure will almost certainly pass, but the question is whether enough House members will band together to block an expected veto from the governor. The bill has already passed the Senate by a comfortable margin."

"Senate Bill 418 would allow Kansans over 21 who pass a background check and undergo training to carry a concealed handgun in public. Convicted felons, or those with a criminal history of drug use, domestic violence or multiple DUIs would be barred." ...

It has enough power to easily penetrate any barrier, even a vehicle, as the deputies demonstrated by firing through a junked-out car." ...
