Colt suing Maine gun manufacturer

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Gun maker Colt Defense is suing its Windham-based competitor Bushmaster for trademark infringement.

Colt's suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Norfolk, Va., claims Bushmaster has is trading on Colt's good name by marketing knockoffs of its popular M-4 military rifle, and seeks unspecified damages.

Colt's lawsuit levies similar allegations against Hartford, Conn.-based gun maker Heckler and Koch.

The lawsuit says Bushmaster's semiautomatic XM-15 E2S rifle is being improperly advertised as an "M-4 type rifle."

Colt's M-4 automatic rifle is its best-selling weapon, sold only to military and law-enforcement agencies.

Colt says Bushmaster deliberately copied the look of its M-4 rifle.

Bushmaster vice president Allen Faraday says the company is confident their marketing fairly and accurately reflects their products.
 

Moms March Again for U.S. Assault Weapons Ban

"Alarmed that the U.S. Congress seems likely to allow an assault weapons ban to lapse, the women who organized the gigantic Million Mom March in 2000 are planning a smaller reprise in Washington this Mother's Day."

"Organizers intend a smaller-scale protest this time, planning for tens of thousands instead of hundreds of thousands. They will gather on May 9 on the west side of the U.S. Capitol, a smaller venue than the expansive National Mall they used in 2000."

"The goal is narrower too. The marchers are not trying to get new laws on the books this time but say they want to pressure Congress to renew the 1994 assault weapons ban, set to expire on Sept. 13."

"In the field of mockumentary filmmaking, there are two giants. Rob Reiner created the genre with his film This is Spinal Tap. Michael Moore has taken the genre to an entirely different level, with Bowling for Columbine." ...

"This is Spinal Tap is an excellent movie which was, unfortunately, neglected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. No such fate befell Bowling for Columbine. While only an unusually dim minority believe that Tap is truth, Bowling for Columbine has seduced almost all of its audiences with its brazen mockumentary."

Five Years After Columbine Shooting, Assault Weapons Continue to Threaten Public Safety, Illustrating Need to Strengthen and Renew Federal Assault Weapons Ban

"Five years after Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and one teacher with an arsenal that included a Hi-Point Carbine assault rifle and a TEC- DC9 assault pistol, assault weapons continue to threaten America's police and public-in spite of a 1994 federal law intended to ban these military-style weapons-the Violence Policy Center (VPC) warned today (April 19th). Without action by Congress and President Bush, the law will expire on September 13, 2004."

Ron Paul: The Lessons of 9/11

"The 9/11 Commission soon will release its report after months of fanfare by those whose reputations are at stake. The many hours and dollars spent on the investigation may well reveal little we don’t already know, while ignoring the most important lessons that should be learned from this egregious attack on our homeland." ...

"...Two specific regulations proved to be disastrous for dealing with the thugs who, without even a single gun, took over four airliners and created the havoc of 9/11. Both the prohibition against guns in cockpits and precise instructions that crews not resist hijackers contributed immensely to the horrors of 9/11."

"Instead of immediately legalizing a natural right of personal self-defense guaranteed by an explicit Second Amendment freedom, we still do not have armed pilots in the sky. Instead of more responsibility being given to the airlines, the government has taken over the entire process. This has been encouraged by the airline owners, who seek subsidies and insurance protection. Of course, the nonsense of never resisting has been forever vetoed by all passengers."

"But he knew the right thing to do was to take it to the police department, so he did."

"By Wednesday afternoon, Minter, 60, was talking to his lawyer and receiving an apologetic phone call from acting Police Chief Mark R. Pawlina, who said he was just as upset as Minter at what happened."

"IT'S not often that the lunacy of liberal 'logic' gets exposed by someone attempting to support it. But that's the case regarding an attempted bodega robbery in Queens - as illuminated by the alleged robber's defense attorney."

"Attorney Scott Brettschnieder thinks the Queens DA's office should recuse itself from prosecuting the case against client Devon Keitt, who was wounded during his attempted hold up. The reason? They 'illegally' let store clerk Edwin Marte 'off the hook' for having an unlicensed firearm - the one he used to save himself during the alleged attempted robbery by the defendant."

"A plan to expand the legal rights of gun owners who fire in self-defense is headed for legislative purgatory in the Illinois House, a key legislator said Thursday."

"The legislation was a response to the case of a Wilmette man who shot a burglar in his home and was then charged with violating a local law that outlawed owning handguns."

"Rep. William Delgado, House Judiciary Committee chairman, said he would create a subcommittee to study the bill and that further action should wait until the fall. He said approving the measure could open up loopholes that would let gun owners use their weapons on the streets and escape punishment."

-------
Only if they used them in self-defense or defense of another and could prove it to a jury! But maybe this pathetic tyrannical slug wants to see people more reliant upon the state, giving him and his ilk more power. The best way to do that is to prosecute self-defense.

"Unless Fayette County updates its gun-permitting program by early summer, gun owners there face an indefinite delay in registering their firearms."

"Addressing the board of commissioners, Sheriff Gary Brownfield said Thursday that, effective July 1, the county's gun permits will be obsolete. After that, those needing to renew their permits or obtain new ones won't be able to do so until the new system is in place."

"The machine Brownfield is eyeing for the task costs $14,031. With the new equipment, a five-year gun permit will cost $26. The fee appears to be an increase over the current statewide fee of $19, but Brownfield said it can be viewed as a savings."

"DEFENCE Force officer Lieutenant-Colonel James Laki has raised an issue that has been of concern to Papua New Guineans for a long time.
It is the issue of prominent people — those in positions of authority — being licensed to carry firearms."

"The use of guns in violent crimes is a matter of enormous concern to everyone in the country and it is beyond belief that those who are placed in positions of responsibility to solve this problem are arming themselves instead of protecting the people. The majority of little people are vulnerable to attacks by criminals with guns and they have been crying for years for leaders to do something about disarming those thugs."

"Yet those who are supposed to be protecting them are looking after themselves — arming themselves and making sure the people know they are armed."

"This a total disgrace."

No, what is a total disgrace is disarming the people and forcing them to rely on others for their very lives - others who have the "privilege" of being armed, but are either unable or unwilling to protect them.

"Voters had better start asking candidates for the House of Representatives if they are willing to file resolutions of impeachment against judges making unconstitutional rulings. All federal candidates also need to be made to commit to using Congress’ constitutional powers to strip jurisdiction from federal courts. If the courts cannot get involved in various issues, they cannot legislate there at all."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it. — DANIEL WEBSTER (1834)
