"No one is more opposed to terrorists acquiring firearms than the 4 million members of the National Rifle Association of America (NRA)."

"But a handful of politicians are trying to scare Americans into believing that terrorists are buying guns in America and that the FBI is unable to stop them."

"Nothing could be further from the truth, and law enforcement is doing its job well!"

"The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) was implemented in 1998, with NRA's endorsement, to help ensure that only law-abiding citizens are able to purchase a firearm. To the credit of the Department of Justice and the FBI, the system works well: Lawful Americans can buy a firearm, while felons and otherwise disqualified persons are denied." ...

"Time Magazine is reporting that, two weeks after intelligence officials confirmed that Osama bin Laden had sent a message to terrorist Abu Mousab al-Zarqawi, urging him to plan attacks on U.S. soil, information gathered from interrogation of a top al-Zarqawi aide indicate the terrorist has talked about hitting 'soft targets' in the U.S., which could include 'movie theaters, restaurants and schools.'"

"It should surprise no one that our enemies would target some of the softest targets in the United States – places where gun ban extremists have succeeded to a large degree in obstructing the human right of self-defense via bans on carrying concealed firearms." ...

"Imagine that your local government makes it a crime to engage in an activity that you believe to be constitutionally protected -- like possessing a handgun in your home for self-defense. Imagine further that the weight of legal scholarship, from liberals and conservatives alike, holds that the Second Amendment secures an individual right to keep and bear arms. Too bad if you live in Washington, D.C., where you may be faced with a Hobson's choice. You can forego possessing a gun for self-defense, and perhaps suffer personal injury. Or you can defy the law, illegally own a gun, use it to defend yourself, then risk arrest, prosecution, fine, or even incarceration when D.C. authorities investigate your 'crime.'" ...

"Being on a terrorism watch list does not mean you really are a terrorist -- and therefore, your right to buy or own a gun should not be infringed, Second Amendment supporters say."

"But FBI Director Robert Mueller, Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and gun control groups disagree."

"In testimony before Congress on Tuesday, Mueller said lawmakers 'ought to look at what can be done' to prevent people on the government's terrorism watch list from buying guns."

"His comments followed the release of a government report showing that more than 40 people included on a terrorism watch list were allowed to buy guns last year." ...

"Despite a mass shooting in Brookfield, Wisconsin, on Saturday in which a gunman killed seven people, wounded four more, and then committed suicide, a subcommittee of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee is scheduled tomorrow to take the first step toward passing legislation to grant the firearms industry protection from some civil lawsuits. The 'Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act' (H.R. 800) would shield the gun industry from liability for suits that arise when a gun dealer's or manufacturer's actions contribute to gun violence. The gun industry already enjoys an exemption from federal health and safety oversight." ...

"Fort Wayne Community Schools officials violated an Elmhurst High School student’s free-speech rights when they suspended him for wearing a T-shirt bearing the likeness of an M-16 rifle and the text of the Marine Corps creed, a federal court ruled Friday."

"The district suspended Nelson Griggs in March 2003 for violating a provision of the school dress code that prohibits students from wearing clothing depicting 'symbols of violence.'"

"'Schools are under undeniable pressure to prevent student violence,' and the anti-violence section of the dress code is 'a reasonable, constitutional tool toward that end,' Cosbey wrote. But in the case of Griggs’ Marine creed shirt, officials went too far, the ruling said." ...

"The British government is to try again today to secure an internationally binding treaty to regulate the arms trade."

"A similar UN initiative four years ago, aimed at curbing small arms, was blocked by the US president, George Bush ..."

"The foreign secretary, Jack Straw, will today set out details of a proposed treaty to regulate trade in conventional weapons, estimated to be worth about £500bn a year."

"According to an advance draft of the speech, Mr Straw will say: 'We should be clear that our goal is not a voluntary agreement, or a talking shop, but a treaty which is legally binding on all its signatories, putting on a firm statutory footing the principle of responsibility in arms exports.'" ...

"Several suspects are still on the loose Tuesday night after police say they tried to rob two jewelry merchants in Little Rock Monday afternoon. Up to seven suspects were reportedly involved. Two are in custody, one was shot and killed, and three or four others are still on the loose." ...

"(Capt. David Ebinger, LR Police) 'I think we probably got at least some of the individuals from yesterday who really didn't know what they were getting into, and an amateur who's not prepared is more dangerous than anybody involved.'"

"A shootout began and the two merchants, who were also armed, shot back at the suspects. One suspect was hit in the shootout, dropped off near a local hospital, and later died." ...

"Meanwhile, prosecutors are reviewing the case to see if any charges will be filed against the two jewelry merchants."

"SEN. Dianne Feinstein is going to take another shot at reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that lapsed late last year when it came up for its 10-year renewal."

"Gun control has been Feinstein's issue since she was first elected to the Senate in 1992, and it is very personal for her."

"Feinstein became San Francisco's mayor on Nov. 27, 1978, when Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk were gunned down at City Hall by Supervisor Dan White. The shooting deaths on July 1, 1993, on the 34th floor at the 101 California St. office building that left eight dead and six wounded came during her first year in the Senate." ...

"Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation Monday to re-establish the federal assault weapons ban, which expired last September after Congress did not reauthorize it."

"Feinstein, D-Calif., was the author of the original 1994 ban on the manufacture and importation of at least 19 types of common military-style assault weapons. She got an amendment through the Senate last year to extend the ban, but it was killed when the piece of legislation it was attached to failed after lobbying by the National Rifle Association." ...

"Todd Vandermyde, an NRA lobbyist in Illinois, said he thinks the database violates the Second Amendment right to bear arms."

"Police use the 13-year-old database to check if gun buyers who live in Chicago and other cities with handgun bans are breaking municipal ordinances by keeping the guns in their homes, Vandermyde said." ...

"Newly elected Commissioner Douglas Bruce insists it is a constitutional issue, and that the county should repeal its ban. Bruce also said, 'Nor do I accept the premise that any one individual has the ability to establish what I would call a constitution free zone.

"Several gun control measures proposed by Daley failed this month in a Senate committee, but they will likely be heard again. Blagojevich described Daley as a leader on gun control and said he supports Daley's package, which includes closing the 'gun-show loophole' and banning assault weapons. Daley also wants to limit buyers to one handgun a month, license firearms dealers and stiffen penalties for armed crimes and irresponsible gun shops." ...

"'At first I didn't think I was going to be able to talk him out of it,' Lockwood said, recalling the incident. 'He had said he had cancer and didn't care what happened to him.'"

"Lockwood was able to crack a joke that lightened the man's mood, eventually making him lower the gun."

"In February 2004, within hours of his release by the East London and City Mental Health Trust, he had killed and dismembered a friend at a Walthamstow flat. He cooked his brain in a frying pan with butter before eating it. The trust today promised a full independent inquiry. Following the Walthamstow killing Bryan was sent to Broadmoor mental hospital where he killed a fellow inmate in a 'medium risk room' nine weeks later." ...

"Labour says the 'debacle' shows Tories do not really care about the issue."

"A committee is examining the Tory plan but its latest meeting was called off when only five MPs arrived in time - one short of the number needed."
