"U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is urging Customs and Border Protection to assess the threat to border patrol agents should the easily available .50 caliber sniper rifle find its way into the hands of Mexican drug smugglers or other criminals."

“The threat posed by the easy availability of the .50-caliber sniper rifle could endanger our border patrol agents and hinder our ability to control our borders... Given the range and lethality of these weapons, how would the Border Patrol carry out its mission should these weapons be used by criminals, smugglers and human traffickers shooting across the border?”

"A simple clause in the Gun-Free School Zones Act, turned millions of Americans into accidental felons, says Reason magazine. In 1995, the Supreme Court overturned the law -- which made it a federal crime to possess a gun within 1,000 feet of a school -- saying the law exceeded Congress' power to regulate interstate commerce. To counteract the ruling, Congress simply placed a requirement that the firearm must have traveled in interstate commerce. Now millions of Americans have a criminal record."

"Some people desperately want to believe that the Constitution gives them carte blanche regarding gun ownership, while at the same time pretending that this somehow makes them part of a 'well-regulated militia' ['Confused about Second Amendment? Blame Congress,' March 6]."

"True, we once had a civilian militia and it did win a couple of battles, but gun owners then had just as much repugnance for government regulation as they do now, and the idea was quickly recognized as a failure and was abandoned."

"If it had been a success, our country would be defended by a 'well-regulated militia' today, wouldn't we?"

"Georgians would be free to shoot muggers, carjackers and other attackers without fear of being prosecuted or sued under a National Rifle Association-backed bill that won final legislative approval Friday."

"Called the 'stand your ground' bill by supporters and the 'shoot first' measure by opponents, Senate Bill 396 is patterned on a law enacted last year in Florida and is similar to measures sweeping through legislatures in at least 15 other states."

"The Georgia House approved the bill 115-42 on Friday, after the Senate approved it last month. It now goes to Gov. Sonny Perdue, who is expected to sign it into law."

"We like that we can protect ourselves... That's the whole thing. Everybody is like, 'why should criminals be able to carry weapons and not a citizen?' It comes down to that."

"I believe that honest, law-abiding citizens should pretty much be able to do anything so long as it doesn’t impact on their neighbors." -- Rep. Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence, voted for concealed carry.

“In looking at the other states, there has not been a significant problem with concealed carry. In fact, the overall crime rates, for violent crimes, have reduced in a majority of those states, and I would have to believe that is a contributing factor to that.” -- Rep. Lee Tafanelli, R-Ozawkie, voted for concealed carry.

“For those people who want that permission to carry, it is a big deal. I’m happy to provide them that freedom today.” -- Rep. Anthony Brown, R-Eudora, voted for concealed carry. (KABA Note: Is this guy even aware of how ignorant and arrogant he sounds?)

“I don’t think putting more guns in the hands of people in public places is going to lead to greater public safety.” -- Rep. Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, voted against concealed carry.

"Dave Lawson is familiar with guns. He's run the Shooter's Choice Firearms training facility for 11 years; before that, he worked as a Delaware State Trooper. For that reason, he has strong feelings about a new bill in the Delaware House. The proposal would limit how much say a judge has in approving concealed weapon permits."

"Right now, after someone has met the predetermined requirements, it's up to a judges personal discrection [sic] to decide if the permit should be issued."

"Lawson says that change is fine, since those who apply for firearms are those that are already obeying the law."

"The devil is in the details."

"The technical details in the case of the Easton police shooting are tedious, but we must grapple with them before deciding whether a state investigation of that shooting might be a whitewash."

"The probe ended with a statewide grand jury report and a press conference by state Attorney General Tom Corbett. Both said one police officer was negligent when he shot and killed another officer inside police headquarters last year, but that '[did] not rise to the level of criminal negligence or recklessness.' So no criminal charges will be filed."

"For the state of Virginia, there was the city's top prosecutor, Richmond Commonwealth's Attorney Michael N. Herring."

"For the defendant, Richmond school teacher Anita Bowens, there was Herring's predecessor, former commonwealth's attorney David M. Hicks." ...

"After the incident, she alleged that police had been verbally abusive and roughed her up when they removed her from her car, after she stopped at Hull and Commerce streets."

"She later filed a complaint against the officers with the police department and has suggested that she could take further legal action."

"Police said the officers pulled Bowens over because the car's movement made them think she could have been a drunken driver. A computer check revealed the car was registered to a man with a previous drunken-driving arrest."

"The officers said they pulled Bowens out of the car when she refused repeated commands to get out and kept her hands gripped on the steering wheel."

"She was charged with obstruction of justice, in addition to failure to maintain and control her vehicle. After reviewing the facts, Herring decided to drop the obstruction charge."

"Fresh from a primary victory, Gov. Rod Blagojevich rallied with families of crime victims backing a proposed assault weapons ban Thursday and blistered Republican challenger Judy Baar Topinka for opposing a ban."

"The Democratic governor called Topinka's position a "shocking and shameful capitulation" to the National Rifle Association and the Illinois State Rifle Association, but Topinka aides said enough gun laws already exist."

"Blagojevich also challenged Topinka to 10 debates before the November election, which her staff said she was happy to discuss--especially if the meetings include state Sen. James Meeks (D-Chicago), who is considering a third-party run for governor."

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams
