Explosive Regulations Threaten to Kill Model Rocketry
Submitted by: Anonymous

"A provision deep within the regulations of the new Homeland Security Act is threatening to shut down the popular hobby of model rocketry because the propellant used to make the rocket's solid-fueled motors is now classified as explosive material."

"Under the new rules, shipping companies are required to have every employee who might touch the rocket motors be certified, pass background checks and get fingerprinted -- an added expense the companies are unlikely to bear."

"The Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show, otherwise known as the SHOT Show, was held in Orlando recently, and the last thing anyone worried about was terrorists."

"Actually, you'd have thought that if there was any trouble, Dirty Harry with his chrome .44, or sweaty Rambo, bandoleer and all, toting his .50-caliber machine gun, would have jumped from behind any of the booths and quickly settled the matter."
 

A "bad gun law" grows in Brooklyn

"Let’s get something straight, Mr. Hynes: no pathetic little would-be tyrant has the right to decide what Mr. Dixon’s rights are, especially when those rights are clearly enumerated in the US Constitution. Let’s get another thing straight, Mr. Hynes: regardless what absurd laws and regulations the brainless lot of politicians in New York saw it fit to pass, the moral principle doesn’t change. The God-given right to defend oneself using the most effective tool on the market – a firearm – cannot morally become a criminal act, simply because a band of frothing, anti-freedom zealots declare it as such."

"With Indiana’s lax gun laws, killings by assault weapons such as the AK-47 and SKS are likely to continue ..."

"There are a couple of pushes under way in the Indiana General Assembly to change that. One would ban assault weapons. Other bills being considered would modify Indiana’s liberal gun laws to be more stringent, as they are in Illinois, where carrying a handgun is illegal, while the city of Chicago has specifically outlawed handguns and assault weapons."

-------
Meanwhile the city of Chicago is one of the most crime-ridden hellholes in the US. Maybe Indiana is striving to emulate?

"Employees were held at gunpoint for hours during last week's raid at the Crazy Horse Too Gentlemen's Club and regained their freedom only after agreeing to give videotaped statements to law enforcement officers, affidavits filed in federal court reveal."

" 'Some of us started consenting to the interrogations in the hopes that it would pacify the gunmen and allow us to be released,' cashier Patricia Pintarelli wrote in one affidavit."

"Pintarelli and other employees have described the Feb. 20 search as a military-style operation that needlessly terrorized occupants of the topless club at a time when the business was packed with customers."

"Crazy Horse attorney Tony Sgro alleges officers violated the rights of workers and patrons during the search. He also said they failed to time the raid so as to minimize the potential for violence."

"The TRUTH is the rifles were sold to the U.S. Government over ten years ago. The rifles were then given by the U.S. Government to Afghanistan freedom fighters, who are now connected to Bin Laden. The manufacturers, Barrett Firearms, sold NOTHING to anyone overseas."

"There is still no price list for the proposed gun buyback, and sporting shooters claim that technical details of the agreement have caused the delay."

"They fear the final rules now being negotiated are far tougher than expected, will stop Australia hosting world championship shooting events, and will put at risk the competitiveness of Australian shooters on the world stage."
 

Australia: The pistol champion who became a target

"Just over a year ago Ivan Rehlicki decided to expand his gun shop. The former Victorian and national pistol shooting champion's business was doing well so he took out a $1.2 million loan - putting up his home as a guarantee to the bank - to build a bigger gun shop in Thomastown with an indoor shooting range."

"He opened it in February last year but, by October, his world had been turned upside down after a licensed gun-owner killed two students and injured five others in a shooting spree at Monash University."

"Within weeks Prime Minister John Howard and Premier Steve Bracks decided to place new bans on handguns that Mr Rehlicki, 44, says has rendered most of the stock in his shop illegal. And, because the Government has still to decide which guns will be banned, he says people are not buying any pistols. 'I haven't sold a handgun since Christmas. I used to sell 15 to 25 pistols a month,' said the father of three."

" 'We've got a $1.2 million investment which has been turned worthless overnight. Our family home has been used as collateral to the bank. The Government has just turned all our sales to zero because they're taking too long to decide what's banned.' "

"Is it not with the grandest of intentions that the advocates for greater gun control push so hard to restriction access to implements of self-defense? Is it not for our own safety that they plead a case that ignores the Second Amendment? Is it not for the children's safety that we must disarm ourselves? How could anything as well-meaning as legislation to enhance security possibly have bad consequences? How could any sane person argue with such good intentions? It would be insanity to let these dangerous circumstances go unnoticed, unaddressed, and unchallenged; for the consequences are quite severe. Sometimes far worse than an alternative we seek to avoid."

"If ever there were examples of a liberal death-wish it is the views of Bill Press and Alan Colmes on illegal immigration which is a major national security threat. But, instead of being concerned about this growing threat, Press and Colmes trash the Good Guys trying to combat this threat calling them 'vigilantes' stirring up trouble, a 'gang,' and lawless racists and white supremacists. I am glad that neither Glenn Spencer nor Chris Simcox will in any way be deterred by such name-calling."

"For the first time, I thought about the naivete of the gun control crowd, who steadfastly believe in their poor human ability to legislate evil criminal behavior out of existence by "removing" guns from society. Washington, D.C., just on the other side of the Potomac River, has been a firm believer in this flawed thinking since 1976 when it banned gun ownership within its borders. In that time, murder rates have skyrocketed. ...The city fathers were effective. Guns have disappeared in D.C. -- from the hands of the law-abiding. There are more guns than ever in the hands of criminals, and they have a disarmed public to prey upon at their whim."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
