"In his best-selling classic, More Guns, Less Crime, John R. Lott, Jr., proved that guns make us safer. Now, in his stunning new book, The Bias against Guns, Lott shows how liberals bury pro-gun facts out of sheer bias against the truth."

"With irrefutable evidence, Lott shoots gun critics down and gives you the information you need to win arguments with those who want to ban guns."

"Yet because he is a Jew, he was attacked by a group of other children, mostly Muslim, at the private Catholic school he then attended. They dragged him into the school's locker room showers shouting that they were going to gas him as the Nazis had gassed Jews. He was beaten and flogged with a pair of trousers whose zipper scratched one of his corneas." ...

"When Jérémy broke free from his tormentors in the shower, he ran for help to the teacher's lounge but none of the faculty rose from their chairs to help the disheveled and distraught boy."

...schools [say] they cannot protect [Jewish] children from harassment and advised that they change schools...

A disarmed Jewish populace and growing anti-Semitism. Sound familiar?

"The N.A.A.C.P contends in the suit, filed in 1999, that its members have been disproportionately injured by gun makers and dealers, and claims that their distribution policies permit guns to be channeled to criminals. More than 80 manufacturers and distributors, including all the major companies, are defendants."

" 'It's going to be the first time the manufacturers are going to have to face the full array of the proof against them,' said David Kairys, a professor at Temple University Law School in Philadelphia who is an adviser to many municipalities in other gun cases around the country."

If you can't win a case on merit, just sue, sue, sue until they run out of money to defend themselves against these onslaughts. This is what these suits are really about.

Last week the Plain Dealer printed three letters to the editor about a misleading article their staff wrote. (2 pro, 1 fell for it). This week they've printed three more letters to the editors about concealed carry. (2 pro, 1 fell for it).

In an effort to get businesses opposed to concealed carry reform, the anti-gunners are trying to convince businesses to fight. They're clearly running out of issues to fight with. These responses are great.

"Interestingly, the consequences O'Neill mentions haven't happened in the 40 other states that have concealed-carry weapons permits. Workplace violence hasn't increased, employee lawsuits haven't blossomed wildly."

"Presently, if individuals believe their lives are in imminent danger from a stalker, or their jobs take them to bad neighborhoods or require them to carry valuables, carrying firearms for protection makes them criminals." ...

"Whether it's an increased sense of patriotism, fear for one's safety or a combination of the two, experts say events such as the war in Iraq and the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks can lead to a surge in one of America's most controversial Constitutional rights - gun ownership."

" 'People feel a need for self-protection,' said Patrick Nolan, a gun advocate and sociology professor at the University of South Carolina. 'In difficult times, the basic right that comes to the forefront is the right of self-defense. Handguns, firearms and other technology can make that possible. Firearms can be a great equalizer.' "

"Tom Mauser, who lost his son in the 1999 Columbine shootings, said the two bills will put more guns on the streets and, according to his view of the universe, will lead to more social insanity and increased violence and death. Mauser, I believe, harbors an unhealthy ax to grind with gun owners. (The parents of the adolescents who did the shooting, incidentally, have managed to avoid the wrath of Mr. Mauser and the Denver community in general.)"

"Longevity is one of a firearm's best features as far as shooters are concerned, but it's one of the worst for gun makers."

"Plenty of guns made in the 19th and early 20th centuries are still giving dependable service after 100 years or more of use. It's a cinch firearms being produced today will last even longer because of progress that's been made in metallurgy and manufacturing."

"To their credit, some local residents are taking a stand. A group of Longmont citizens has intentionally checked 'subversive' books out of the library. They've also asked the Longmont City Council to pass a resolution opposing this provision of the law. At least 63 cities have approved similar resolutions. Last year, Boulder's council passed a resolution expressing qualified support of 'civil liberties.' "

"As I write this, decisions are being made that will change the course of history. I could argue my politics until I’m blue in the face — and I think debate is important — but that’s not my point right now."

"A congressman has proposed a silly bill that amounts to unabashed propaganda. Civil liberties are bulldozed out of the system in the name of patriotism, and we don’t notice the irony. We chuckle at our cleverness in coming up with acronyms for weapons of mass destruction."

"The bill, S. 476, called the 'Faith-based Initiative' has two insidious sections, 106 and 107, that call for a 25% tax cut on capital gains of land sales, but only if the land is sold to an 'environmental group' or a government agency."

"This legislation is a classic Trojan Horse. No other 'faith-based' groups would benefit, but all Americans would suffer the economic losses as more and more land is taken off the tax rolls and all access and use of that land would be restricted."

"Statistics demonstrate that trends show growing numbers of assault by tumult rather than deception. That means that the threat's already 'cased' your house, determined what's of value and how to best get it. You won't be able to just tell him to 'go away,' because your first inkling that this may not turn out to be one of your most stellar evenings is when the threat literally kicks in your door or window, and rushes in with at least half a dozen armed, screaming thugs."

"They contrast this with the experience of Europeans ...who, by way of example, find it incomprehensible how an 18th century pronouncement about gun control is a conundrum incapable of resolution in a nation beset by appalling levels of bloodletting at the point of a gun."

"They conclude that what people hate about America is the political entity based on authoritarian violence, double standards, self-obsessed self-interest, and an historical naivety that equates self with the world."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. — Justice William O. Douglas, US Supreme Court (1939-75)
