... "Note the word 'legally.' The AP demands to make public the names of everyone who has shown a willingness to jump through hoops and comply with the law. That will do nothing to identify criminals, the ones creating all the problems, who just ignore it. So naturally, the anti-gun lobby, the 'mainstream' media and opportunistic government officials are all for it, including Attorney General Lisa Madigan, who issued a ruling saying the list must be disclosed." ...

"A menace stalks our society, contributing daily to panic and untimely death. Irresponsible television reporting whips the public into a passionate frenzy and leads them to make imprudent decisions, sometimes with fatal consequences."

"Clearly, there should be a law. Congress should require reasonable, common-sense television controls to register all reporters with the federal government and require background checks to purchase cameras and other sensitive equipment. After all, it's for the children."

"Yes, that's our attempt at an April Fool's joke. But our point is quite serious ..." ...

"For 30 years, Chicago banned handguns. The crime rate skyrocketed. Murders soared. Gangs blossomed. Desperate city officials even considered calling the National Guard to combat the out-of-control violence that all the 'community organizing' in the world couldn't curb. The Supreme Court struck down Chicago's individual firearms ownership prohibition last year, but the same anti-gun zealots who put Windy City citizens' lives at risk remain in power."

"And now one of them may soon be in charge of the scandal-plagued Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives."

A 'Bring Your Gun to Work' Movement Builds

... "... The spread of 'parking lot' or 'bring your gun to work' laws stems in part from the landmark 2008 Supreme Court ruling that struck down Washington, D.C.'s handgun ban. Surprisingly, the January shooting of U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) is also playing a role. Of 37 bills introduced in 16 state legislatures this year involving guns on company property, 33 came after the Tucson attack, says the Legal Community Against Violence, a public-interest law center in San Francisco. Gun rights activists, fearing a backlash, are pushing for broader rights, says Ladd Everitt, a spokesman with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, a Washington advocacy group. ..." ...

"The second amendment poses an unmistakable threat to the Republic. The 112th congress must pass a bill to repeal and send to the states for ratification. Intended to promote well regulated militia to maintain the security of the states, the right to bear arms, has been interpreted by the courts as the right of self protection. Yet as guns have proliferated, average citizens are left unprotected from gun violence." ...

"A recent disturbing article in your paper should have provoked a lot of thought and discussion on the 'gun control issue' locally and nationally. An Athens gun shop owner was pictured standing proudly, smiling, before a wall of 'assault rifles and high-capacity automatic pistols.' He was offering cash gift certificates toward gun shop purchases from his next-door accounting business. He certainly knew it was good business to cash in on the 24/7 talk-radio phobia about the possible Second Amendment restrictions, caused by the last presidential election." ...

... "This refusal is exactly what some politicians want. If the 'failure to cooperate' continues, ATF is in for another blood bath . . . maybe a fatal one this go-around. It could be an effortless task, a simple matter–while appearing logical to most uninformed citizens. Cost-cutting measures, directed at government employees, are a ready-made excuse to lop off heads. In 1992 - ‘93, ATF appeared to eat their own by purging nonconformist with a disastrous reorganization scheme where smoke and mirrors were the management tools of the day." ...

"New information is coming to light that one of America's top law enforcement agencies under the control of the US Presidency was helping to provide military grade guns to the violent Mexican crime cartels, who are importing the vast majority of America's illegal aliens, cocaine, and methamphetamine.

What percentage of Mexican 'crime guns' are 'gunwalked' by Obama administration?

"For years now, advocates of yet more restrictive regulation of private gun ownership in the U.S. have tried to use violent crime in Mexico to justify their demands for more infringements on that which shall not be infringed. One might think that the combination of Mexico's extremely draconian gun laws, and the rampant violence there, would demonstrate that restrictive gun laws are not the way to combat 'gun violence.' Instead, though, they claim that the Mexican drug syndicates responsible for the vast majority of the violence get their guns from the commercial market in the U.S., so that if our laws were more strict, the drug traffickers would run out of guns, and Mexico would be a 'gun-free' paradise." ...

"The day after four people were wounded in a suspected Northeast Portland gang-related shooting, gun-control advocates rallied at City Hall."

"Speakers at the March 21 event included Mayor Sam Adams, religious leaders and relatives of people killed by guns. They spoke passionately about the emotional and societal toll of shootings, including suicides." ...

Submitter's Note: If they are serious about reducing "gun deaths", then they should push for enhanced suicide prevention programs. Suicides constitute over half of "gun deaths", but gun 'availability' does not affect overall suicide rates.
