"The sweep of gun rights reform in this country is nearly complete as Nebraska prepares to join the 47 other states who have some provision for citizens to carry firearms for their personal protection."

"The Nebraska legislature passed a concealed carry bill Wednesday, which Republican Governor Dave Heineman has said he will sign into law."

"Only Illinois and Wisconsin continue to ban concealed carry, and Wisconsin has narrowly failed to override their governor's veto on two separate occasions." ...
 

NYC Mayor's Criticism of Gun Legislation Challenged

"New York City's mayor is blasting a congressional proposal ... Michael Bloomberg claimed the legislation 'would explicitly impinge on our ability to fight illegal gun trafficking, and it would result in the shooting deaths of innocent people.' But an attorney who specializes in federal firearms laws calls Bloomberg's claims 'patently false.'" ...

"But attorney and firearms law expert Richard Gardiner challenged that description."

"'That assumes that trace data is meaningful in indicating that [firearms] dealers are involved in selling guns that are used in crimes,' Gardiner told Cybercast News Service. 'And the problem with that is that ... not all trace guns are 'crime guns' and not all 'crime guns' are traced.'" ...

"... The idea of a republican government, in that paper, is something superior to the poor people. The governing persons are the servants of the people. There, the servants are greater than their masters; because it includes infinitude, and infinitude excludes every idea of subordination. In this the creature has destroyed and soared above the creator. For if its powers be infinite, what rights have the people remaining? ...

"A move is on in Congress to make permanent a 3-year-old ban that has denied the public and press information from a federal program that traces guns used in crimes. Why? To prevent the information from being used by states and cities — including New York state and city — to strengthen lawsuits against gun manufacturers and shady dealers." ...

"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has issued its 2005 state-by-state report card on the success of its gun-grabbing agenda."

"Alaska received an F+, dropping from a D-. Across the nation, 32 states received D's or F's on the report card. Thirty-two."

"Why did Alaska fare so 'poorly,' according to the anti-gunners? Thankfully, there were many reasons. Among them: Law-abiding folks can carry concealed weapons here; the state allows private sales without government interference; Alaska does not limit handgun sales to one a month; and, we do not allow police to arbitrarily limit concealed carry. And on and on and on." ...

Submitter's Note: Just as a recap, Alaska with a 2003 'gun death' rate of 18.50 got an F+, Washington DC, with a rate of 29.29 got a B.

"Don't let the name of this legislation fool you, the Firearms Corrections and Improvement Act only serves to improve the chances of somebody getting away with a gun crime."

"This bill proposes changes that will undermine federal law and endanger public safety. These are not mere technical corrections, but a blatant attempt to restrict use of the ATF's National Trace Center’s database."

"This bill cuts local law enforcement out of the loop. Without this tracing data, local law enforcement officials won’t be able to pursue civil action on suppliers that have been implicated in crimes without the ATF's involvement. Amazingly, HR 2005 makes sharing this information with another police department a crime." ...

"California attorney John Wolfgram ... recently submitted an Amicus brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, DC arguing on behalf of the We The People Foundation plaintiffs in the landmark Right-to-Petition lawsuit, We The People vs. The United States, case No. 05-5359." ...

Although Wolfgram does not extensively address the matter of withholding taxes to secure just Redress, he does go to some length to remind the court that while Magna Carta explicitly provided for lawful, violent rebellion to secure effective Justice, the purpose of such declaratory language was not to 'legalize' rebellion per se, but to insure that the King understood it was through the threat and demonstration of pending violence that substantive Justice could peacefully be secured. Hence, by analogy, the real purpose of our Second Amendment in relation to the Petition clause is revealed." ...

"Mayor Bloomberg likened the country's illegal gun crisis to 'a major public health problem' during a speech last night marking the 25th anniversary of the assassination attempt on Ronald Regan."

"At an annual dinner for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence in Manhattan, Bloomberg continued his crusade against illegal guns."

"'This is a major public health problem,' he said. 'What's going on here is unconscionable.'"

"Bloomberg is known for his public-health initiatives - most notably the passing of a citywide smoking ban, which coincidentally became law exactly three years ago. His alma mater, Johns Hopkins University, even named its School of Public Health after the mayor." ...

"The guns were originally used by the Metropolitan Police (PM), who are now being rearmed with more powerful Glock pistols made in Austria.
Barreto, a key figure in the ruling Fifth Republic Movement (MVR), argues that it would be better to make use of the old guns rather than decommission them. His critics say he’s giving up and encouraging vigilantism, and warn that anything up to 2,000 guns could end up in the wrong hands." ...

"Should records of people who get permits to carry concealed guns in Kansas be concealed from the public?"

"That issue was raised in a Journal-World online chat Thursday with the main sponsor of the new law, Sen. Phil Journey, R-Haysville."

"Journey, the self-described 'quarterback' of the new law, said the privacy issue hasn’t yet been addressed — but that he would work to protect the privacy of those who get permits."

"'This was not contemplated in the drafting of the bill and shall be dealt with as fast as possible,' Journey said during the chat."

"The new law goes on the books July 1, but the first permits aren’t expected to be issued by the Kansas Attorney General’s Office until January." ...

"The concealed gun law passed by the Texas Legislature in 1995 couldn't be clearer. A citizen's license to carry a handgun may be suspended if the holder is charged with a Class A or Class B misdemeanor or indicted on felony charges. The right is restored if the person is acquitted or the charges dismissed."

"In the intervening 11 years, the statute has been enforced without controversy. Who would want an accused robber or murderer packing heat while awaiting trial? During that time plenty of Texas politicians were charged with felonies, but none went to court to defend his right to carry a concealed weapon while under indictment." ...

"If we could pass a law that could save one person's life, at only modest inconvenience to anyone else, should we do it? That is the question facing Illinois lawmakers as once again they consider a statewide ban on semiautomatic assault-type weapons. We would argue that the answer is clear — that certain guns ought not to be legal — and that those who oppose such efforts are defending the indefensible. They are picking someone's right to play with deadly toys over public safety." ...

"The recent passage of the concealed carry bill has people talking, and local law enforcement officials are seemingly split with their responses to it."

"Some are in favor of responsible citizens being allowed to carry firearms, while others aren’t so sure the law is a benefit."

"Now, citizens will have the chance to decide whether to carry a concealed weapon after the House and Senate voted a combined 91-33 on March 23 to override Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ veto of the concealed firearm bill."

"One of the main arguments was whether states with a form of the concealed carry law are safer than those that don’t have a form of the law."

"Kechi Police Chief Jason Doll said the new law wouldn’t make the state safer." ...

The judge let the trial proceed on a charge of second-degree murder, which carries a possible penalty of five to 40 years. ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

One prison system's list of contraband items includes drugs, weapons and now peanut butter.

The Tennessee state prison system has decided to ban jars of peanut butter. Officials say inmates were using them to conceal drugs and guns, and they found a 32-caliber pistol and ammunition during a search.

Inmates had been allowed to buy 18-ounce jars from prison commissaries. Now they'll have the option of one-ounce packets.

Department investigators found that George Hyatte, an inmate accused in the shooting death of a guard during a bold courthouse escape last year, used a peanut butter jar to hide a cell phone that he used to coordinate his escape.

"Amnesty International welcomes the recent conviction of a police officer for the murder of an 18 year-old man in January 2004. This is the first time since independence that a police officer has been convicted of murdering someone while on duty in Trinidad and Tobago. However, the organization is greatly alarmed that the officer has been sentenced to death."

"Although the conviction is a positive step in the fight for justice in cases of police killings in Trinidad and Tobago, the organization strongly condemns the passing of a sentence of death. It would be a terrible irony if this conviction for a state killing were to be punished by what in effect would be another state killing." ...

"Our sister paper, The Leader in Surrey and North Delta, is running a series about the widespread availability and use of guns. It’s a surprising and shocking picture. Guns are easily available to young people and those involved in crime. Most come from the U.S., smuggled into Canada in trade for drugs. They are used, more and more often, in crimes — particularly gang murders."
