-- This article shows how the anti-gun wackos lie to push their agenda.

"Not only are Bellesiles' alleged transgressions less broadly reported than the others. They are, if confirmed, more relevant because his historical thesis has become part of the contemporary public policy debate on the Second Amendment."

Senator Bob Smith of New Hampshire, has introduced Bill S.1996 in Congress, designed to discourage frivolous lawsuits against the gun industry that could bankrupt gun businesses. The bill would require plaintiffs to reimburse the gun industry for their legal defense costs if they lose, and limit attorney fee awards.

This would apply to any case filed for over $1 million or 50% of the assets of the defendant for damages caused by the unlawful use of a gun by a criminal.

Contact your U.S. Senators to cosponsor and support this bill!

Around the country, gun-rights groups are waging what some portray as a deliberately gradual, one-step-at-a-time effort to ease state laws governing the carrying of a concealed weapon.

Organizations such as the National Rife Association and Gun Owners of America say their efforts — under way in more than half the states — are no greater this year than before. But they say the Sept. 11 attacks may have provided some momentum.

Bragging between sixth graders at Oakwood Elementary School in north Stockton compelled one of the youngsters to bring a loaded gun to campus, police said.

"It's very unfortunate that a student would do this, especially a young student," Lodi Unified Superintendent Bill Huyett said. "How does an 11-year-old get access to a gun? That raises a lot of questions."

(Parental firearms training lapse.)

KABA NOTE: Yes -- the parents should have taught that a gun should always be unloaded before showing to others.

"We didn't expect to find armed civilians," one of the gunmen later admitted.

"Homeland Security" Director Ridge recently announced a color code to measure terrorist threats. The code begins with green -- indicating a low security risk -- and from there escalates to blue, yellow, orange and red. Ridge said that it may be several years before we sink below a level yellow alert -- the color yellow meaning the level of risk is "elevated."

Well, that may be true in most places. But not in Kennesaw, GA, where residents are celebrating two decades of crime-free living.

If a voter is registered as a member of the Libertarian Party, he or she can only vote for Libertarians. Democrats can only vote for Democrats. Republicans for Republicans. And so on.

Voters who are registered as nonpartisan or undeclared can vote for any party's candidates. But only for one party's candidates.

(Where's the rope?!)

KABA NOTE: Some states (like New York) have this rule; in others (like South Carolina), anyone can vote in whatever primary is available.

There are times when the state Legislature resembles a carnival midway, a place where rigged games take precedence... the refusal by Senate Democratic "leaders" to allow so-called concealed-carry legislation to be given a fair public hearing.

"Although we oppose the bill, which would enable citizens to carry concealed weapons, it's wrong for Democrats to hold it hostage in committee because of ideological differences." - Opinion of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Staff

"It is next to impossible to get a concealed carry permit in California. Despite enormous progress nationally with approximately 35 states having some form of shall issue law, California remains in the dark ages when it comes to allowing the law abiding the right to self-defense.

There are alternatives for Californians. None provide the ability to level the playing field against a criminal armed with a firearm, but they can prove effective when no other measures are available..." - Self Defense Armory

The expectations for the University of Alaska Fairbanks rifle team are enormous. But they wouldn't want them any other way.

The Nanooks have won the last three national titles. They have crowned five of six individual champions in that span.

The goal this year is simple: another national title, two more individual titles. For the most successful collegiate rifle team in the nation being good isn't enough. They strive for perfection, and sometimes they obtain even that.

State Sen. Thomas J. Walsh, who is facing Cronin in the newly reconfigured 21st legislative district, has introduced three bills he says encourage the safe use of guns and "close loopholes in ownership regulations."

"I think that people are interested in handgun safety," said Walsh.

A gun shop owner who wants to relocate his South Michigan Street store next to the Center for the Homeless has been told he won't be allowed to under city code, but he insists that he hasn't changed his plans.

A sign in a window at 755 S. Michigan St. reads "Future Site of Len's Gun Shop."

But St. Joseph/South Bend Building Commissioner Don Fozo said city code prohibits a gun shop from locating within 200 feet of a "school, child-care center or child-care ministry."

"It has come to the attention of the ISRA-PVF that mail originating from the campaign of 100th House District hopeful Gwen Klingler implies that she has the endorsement of the National Rifle Association."

"Such implications are false and misleading as the NRA and the ISRA-PVF have delivered a joint endorsement to Klingler's opponent, Rich Brauer, in the 100th House District race."
