Coalition Forms to Oppose Parts of Antiterrorism Law

"Battle lines were drawn Tuesday in the debate over the government's counterterrorism powers, as an unlikely coalition of liberal civil-rights advocates, conservative libertarians, gun-rights supporters and medical privacy advocates voiced their objections to crucial parts of the law that expanded those powers after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001."

"Keeping the law intact 'will do great and irreparable harm' to the Constitution by allowing the government to investigate people's reading habits, search their homes without notice and pry into their personal lives, said Bob Barr, a former Republican congressman who is leading the coalition." ...

"Other conservatives who voiced concerns Tuesday included Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Taxpayer Reform; David Keane, chairman of the American Conservative Union, and leaders of the Second Amendment Foundation and other gun-rights groups." ...

"What is the duty of the police in your hometown to protect you from your estranged husband, after you’ve had your ex-husband served with a legal restraining order because you fear he may try to harm you and your children?"

"That question is at the heart of a lawsuit from Castle Rock, Colo., which has now made it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Oral arguments in the case will be heard on March 21."

"In 1999, three little girls - aged 10, 8, and 7 - were shot to death by their father. Now, their mother is trying to sue Castle Rock and its police force for not protecting her daughters." ...

"... Chief Lane sent 60 Minutes a letter after our interview. And on one key point, he agrees with Gonzales: 'The tragedy of the Gonzales shootings points out the much larger problem in this country … with restraining orders. They do not protect society from the Simon Gonzales of the world.'"
 

Gun-Control Issue, With Middle Ground Elusive, Fades From National Agenda

"In the wake of another spate of gun mayhem -- this time in Red Lake, Minn., just nine days after a mass shooting in Brookfield, Wis. -- the question resurfaces: Why can't a gun-control compromise be found to prevent such incidents?" ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Perhaps because the anti-gun fanatics are not interested in compromises except as stepping stones in their ultimate goal of a complete prohibition. To say nothing of the fact that their way increases gun violence, and therefore the calls to 'compromise' again with more restrictions which don't affect the ones who are actually committing most of the violence!

"... Despite centuries of evidence that gun control laws do not lower crime, stop violence, or make society safer in any way, liberals keep plugging away at our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms."

"I am not going to weary you with a regurgitation of all the well known statistics showing how strict gun control laws are followed by sharp spikes in violent crime rates or with arguments asking the Left to explain its intellectual consistency behind their view that the only remedy to a failed gun control law is the creation of another gun control law just like it. The real question in the gun control debate is not the statistics or the nuances of the law but why in the first place liberals are so preoccupied with making it harder for law abiding citizens to carry a gun." ...

"The last ten days have seen three horrific multiple-victim public shootings: the Atlanta courthouse attack that left four murdered; the Wisconsin church shooting, where seven were murdered, and Monday's high-school shooting in Minnesota, where nine were murdered. What can be learned from these attacks? Some take the attacks as confirmation that guns should be completely banned from even courthouses, let alone schools and churches." ...

"There is a broader lesson to learn from these attacks. All three attacks took place in areas where gun possession by those who did the attack as well as civilians generally was already banned — so-called 'gun-free safe zones.' Suppose you or your family are being stalked by a criminal who intends on harming you. Would you feel safer putting a sign in front of your home saying 'This Home is a Gun-Free Zone'?" ...

"Sexual assault can victimize anyone. Men and women are at risk. Although women carry the higher statistic of attack, no one is completely risk free."

"Accidents are called accidents for a reason. They can happen in a matter of seconds and can throw victims off their guard. Assaults happen with the same suddenness and violence." ...

"Jeff Minor, 23-year-old geography major, has been an assistant karate instructor for a year and a half. He has taught self-defense classes for rape prevention."

"'The first thing we tell (students), is don't put yourself in that situation. Be smart,' Minor said."

"Self-defense may be helpful when being attacked, but it can also deter an attacker." ...

... "Spare me most of all the moronic ranting and raving of the gun grabbers who always seem a little pleased when such tragedies happen and afford then an opportunity to blame guns and gun owners. Of all those who seek to deflect blame from the killer the gun control zealots are, by far, the most disturbing."

"They spout the same tired lies about how the easy accessibility of guns is to blame, or America's love of guns and violence is at fault. No, no, and no again! The killer is at fault alone here. After all, he killed his grandfather and then took his guns. If you are willing to commit murder to get hold of a gun what law would stop you?" ...

"No, the title is not hyperbole. I believe that school shootings would disappear if everyone knew that each school had two or three teachers (or administrators) who were armed and considered dangerous (to the bad guys), and willing to defend the defenseless. Guns are not the problem. People are." ...

"I am weary of hearing radical leftists whine about how guns are corrupting young people and are a deadly threat to all our citizens especially those in schools. However, guns are inanimate while people are initiators so the problem is not with guns but with people. Anti-gun parents are horrified to see their small children playing with guns and 'shooting' each other. Has the world gone insane? Most of us grew up 'shooting' other kids. ..." ...

"Like all people of good conscience, the directors and officers of the Illinois State Rifle Association were saddened to learn of the shootings in Red Lake, Minn., earlier this week. Given the disturbing circumstances surrounding this crime, the ISRA hoped that the media would not exploit this tragedy by calling for renewed attacks on the law-abiding citizen's right to own firearms. Unfortunately, the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune has chosen to capitalize on the pain and suffering of so many in an attempt to further its crusade to abolish private firearm ownership." ...

"It's two days after the terrible shooting in Red Lake, Minn. When the gunfire ended Monday, 10 people were dead, including five students and the shooter."

"Maybe the country is still coming to grips with a trail of death wrought by an outcast teenager. But it doesn't seem too early to state something both painful and chilling: This isn't Columbine."

"That is, the country isn't reacting the same way as it did [after Columbine]" ...

"Watch the nation's political leaders for signals. The shooting in Minnesota has generated, what? Outrage? A call to disarm? How about this: near silence. Politically, the shooting demonstrates that there has been a substantial and unfortunate shift in the politics of gun control in this country." ...

"I HAD only been in New York for two weeks when I saw a man having a gun pointed at his head through the passenger window of a taxi."

"It provided me with my first and most important lesson about living in the States."

"Whenever there is any sort of dispute going on - even if you are not involved - just walk away."

"Crazy gun laws mean there is every chance that the other person is armed. In America, there are believed to be around 70million owners and 222million guns."

"An adult can walk out of a shop in many states with a semi-automatic machine gun and a pistol for £100. There are no checks needed if weapons are sold at gun shows. No Federal laws demanding owners register their weapons." ...

"Florida could wind up back in the Wild West, with people shooting first and asking questions later under a proposal that could pass the Senate today, critics of the bill warned." ...

"Under the proposal, people aren't required to retreat — back down or run away — if they are in fear that a person would attack or commit a forcible felony on them in any place a person 'has the right to be.'" Potential victims can 'meet force with force,' even if it results in death, and not face criminal charges or civil lawsuits." ...

"Ignoring a warning that lawmakers were about to turn Florida streets into a scene reminiscent of the Wild West, the Senate preliminarily approved a bill that would expand the right of Floridians to use deadly force if they are threatened in their homes or cars."

"The bill, SB 436, has the backing of the National Rifle Association. And it is moving quickly through the Legislature, with 29 senators and 82 House members sponsoring it. The Senate is expected to vote on it today, while the House Justice Council is scheduled to debate a similar version, HB 249." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both. — William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)
