Pentagon Developing Non-Lethal Weapons
Submitted by: Newslinks Director

"The Pentagon has asked companies to develop non-lethal weapons that U.S. soldiers can use in situations where it's difficult to define the line between civilian and enemy."

"In addition, American Technology Corp., a San Diego, Calif., company, is working on a portable, battery-powered sonic rifle that fires a burst of noise as high as 140 decibels. The weapon would be beneficial in stopping skyjackers without using firearms that could cripple an airplane."

"NRA's plan to team with Memberdrive to reach advertisers interested in targeting members of the pro-gun lobby has been stymied. Under the plan, Memberdrive ... would have served as the go-between for advertisers interested in capitalizing on the loyalty of NRA members. Advertisers would have paid royalties in exchange for the NRA's endorsement."

"H&R Block was the first company to agree to the marketing deal, but abruptly decided to back out of the deal."

"Charlton Heston and the National Rifle Association swept into a number of contested states, including West Virginia, and carried them into George Bush's column.

That's because the national Republicans got it.

In West Virginia, where crime rates are consistently among the lowest in the country, guns are used by hunters, not by criminals preying on their victims. Guns are about hunting; hunting is heritage. Take away my gun, rob me of my heritage."

"A few weeks ago, I wrote an article called “The Danger of Factionism”, in which I suggested that it was time for a meeting of Real Americans who are concerned about the way our rights are fading into the sunset. I mentioned that I might know of a place to hold such a meeting, and I finished the article with: “So, what would ye, Americans?”

"The response has been tremendous. I received email after email from people who agreed that it was time to hold such a meeting."

"We have suspended play when they're using imaginary weapons until the guidelines can be developed to help the staff, (STAFF - A stick to herd sheep?), differentiate between dangerous and imaginary play."

Man followed coworker home, ran him over with car

Since treasonous operatives come up with new and creative ways to deprive citizens of their rights in the name of “safety”, shouldn't they include weapons other then 'firearms' used to maim and kill?

Cars [KABA NOTE: actually the people who drive them], by themselves, are more responsible for death and injury then guns possessed by law-abiding (CONSTITUTIONAL law-abiding) citizens.

Then again, "gun control" is not about "public safety", it’s about subjugation of citizens.

"Target practice could soon get a lot more expensive. Next week a Bay Area state senator will formally propose a five-cent-a-bullet sales tax. Not five percent, but a nickel for each and every round."

Shoot a small caliber weapon, such as a .22? That more than doubles the price of your ammo.

"Higher licensing fees, mandatory background checks and a crackdown on part-time gun dealers, all changes that went into effect in the mid-1990s, had little to do with America's drop in violent crime in the years that followed, according to a new study from a criminologist at the University of Pennsylvania."

"Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. is one of the most dangerous, power-mad, anti-Second Amendment gun-grabbers in our country. In late 1999, he issued a 63-page report titled A Farewell To Arms: The Solution To Gun Violence In America. If Curran was intellectually honest, however, his report would have been more accurately titled A Farewell To The Constitution's Second Amendment."

"Teenagers and young adults who watched more than one hour of TV daily were more likely to commit violent crimes and engage in other forms of aggressive behavior later, according to a report..."

"Some experts said that the findings are relatively weak ... But others said the findings are important because they identify the behavior for the first time in the older group."

"The research is also significant for linking violence to watching any TV program, not just violent ones."

[Sort of a humorous sidenote to the Bellesiles scandal]

"Well, now. Here's an interesting little tid-bit regarding Emory History Professor Michael A. Bellesiles, author of Arming America (Knopf, 2000). The April 19, 1997 edition of the Emory Report, published by a division of the University's Office of Public Affairs, quotes Bellesiles as saying that Courtney Brown's past actions should not be grounds to impede his research "no matter how embarrassing to the department."

"Chief Sommer had first told authorities that he was shot while struggling with a man he pulled over for driving without license plates" but had in fact "accidentally fired a rifle through his cruiser's windshield in the police garage."

"Police have reversed their decision not to file criminal charges against a 7-year-old boy who brought a loaded handgun to school last week on a dare."

KABA NOTE: So a police chief who shoots himself and a squad car "may get fired if the committee approves" (see newslinks today), but a 7-year-old child will be charged as a criminal even though the gun he had didn't cause any damage.

"The White House responds that Gov. Ridge might be willing to visit the Hill for some informal "background" sessions, but that he's under no obligation to submit himself to formal, public questioning -- even if congressmen agree beforehand to close portions to the public for security reasons."

"under McCain's Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, recently signed by President Bush, the American Civil Liberties Union would be committing a crime if it called McCain an enemy of the First Amendment on TV at a time when voters were likely to be paying attention. The law prohibits unions, corporations and nonprofit organizations from sponsoring broadcast, satellite or cable communications that mention candidates for federal office within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election."
