"And so, Ive finally reached the point where Ive decided I will no longer be 'reasonable' while the other side has never, does not now, nor will ever accord me the same courtesy."

"Even though this piece will never see the light of day in any major publication, I have a message for the anti-gun zealots out there. Its from someone whos perfectly normal and is basically your next door neighbor."

"There used to be a bumper sticker that said: 'Youll get my gun when you pry my cold, dead fingers from the trigger.' "

"You made fun of it and derided those who believed in the spirit of the idea it propounded."

"Unfortunately, its not much seen any more and Ive been unable to find one for my own use."

"For that reason, Ive designed one of my own."

"It says: 'When you come for my guns, bring yours. Youll be needing them.' "

"When the cockpit door locks behind pilot Mark Bogosian, terrorists can't get to him and take over the jumbo jet he flies across the nation."

"As for those on the other side of the door, they're on their own." ...

"That's why we need to empower passengers to let them know they're not defenseless in an attack," Bogosian said."

"To that end, Bogosian joined the SWAT team commander at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and veteran police instructor in writing 'Never Again: A Self-Defense Guide for the Flying Public.' ..."

-------
Of course they're defenseless! They're relieved of anything that even remotely resembles a weapon, while these people advocate using elbows to stop terrorists.

Gunning for assault ban

"When U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein stood up at Espinoza's funeral and called for support to renew her legislation banning assault weapons nationwide, she was met with a standing ovation from mourning cops. If Espinoza's death galvanizes anti-gun activists locally, it will not be the first time San Francisco is at the forefront of the campaign to ban assault weapons."

-------
Ummm. Hellooo? Dianne! The ban is in effect right now, and it did absolutely nothing to stop the death of this officer. Don't you feel just a little guilty dancing on the grave of a fallen officer just to promote your political goals?
 

Haiti Needs Disarmament and the Three R's: Reconciliation, Reconstitution, and Reconstruction, Says Rep. Gregory W. Meeks

"It became immediately clear from all our conversations and observations there that what Haiti needs more than anything else is disarmament. Too many civilians have guns. Too many groups use guns to resolve political disputes. Too many of Haiti's police officers, many of which are little more than thugs in uniforms, use their guns to service the interests of this or that political faction. Peace and progress will not come to Haiti until Haitians themselves reject the politics of the gun and instead choose nonviolent conflict resolution. When this becomes their choice, the United States and the rest of international community can and should play a decisive role in helping to disarm civilians ..."

Last letter on the page

Letter to the Editor from a male Mom. Same old tired argument.

"...An individual's 'right to bear arms' is suspect from the beginning, given the context and wording of the Second Amendment... no more absolute than anyone's First Amendment rights, which are subject to reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions."

More all the time, in fact. However, you CAN yell "Fire!" in a crowded theater if there IS a fire. And the government doesn't tape your mouth shut before you enter said theater, just in case you decide to yell, "FIRE!"

Same tired argument. Same tired illogic. Different source.
 

Some Gun Activists Wobbly on Bush

"But while President Bush may have his problems, many gun owners say that Kerry, with his long record of favoring gun-control legislation, is not a palatable alternative to the current president."

"Bush is 'not with us 100 percent of the time. He is with us 90 percent of the time. John Kerry is with us 0 percent of the time. Gun owners dont have much of a choice,' said Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the 650,000-member Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms."

"Bush has rankled gun owners by expressing through spokesmen his support for reauthorizing the assault weapons ban, which is set to expire in September. Gun activists are also bothered by Patriot Act legislation that they say is an imposition on personal freedom."

What 90% Alan?? Bush appears to be with us 0% on the Patriot Act and AWB, please explain what 90% is??
 

Vice President Affirms Individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Text of Vice President Cheney's speech to NRA Annual Meeting.

"Under President Bush, the executive branch also understands that the Second Amendment affirms more than a symbolic principle. It states, after all, that 'the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.' (Applause.)"

"This means, as the Attorney General has stated unequivocally, that law abiding citizens of the United States have the individual right to own a firearm. (Applause.)"

-------
KABA Note: We must, then, ask ourselves what this administration's definition of "infringed" is. Is requiring background checks to make a constitutionally protected purchase "infringing" on a right? Is forcing taxpayers to shoulder the costs of locking up your tool of self-defense count as "infringed?" Can prohibiting certain types of firearms, ammunition or accessories be considered as "infringement?" How about requiring people to disarm when they board a plane or enter a federal facility, thereby painting a big, red bull's eye on the back of every disarmed citizen for the armed criminals to aim at?

We'd be willing to bet the founding fathers would think so. Does President Bush think so? Does Vice President Cheney think so?

"The Supreme Court said Monday it will not consider reinstating mealtime prayers at a state-funded military college, turning aside an appeal from Virginia officials who wanted to preserve the tradition."

"Justice Antonin Scalia blasted his colleagues for refusing to hear the case, arguing that it raised important church-state and other questions. Leaving those issues unresolved is unfair to Virginia Military Institute, Scalia wrote in a dissent joined by fellow conservative Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist."

"A lower federal court had found VMI's mealtime prayers violate the Constitution, and the high court's action means that ruling will stand."

"The bill, passed by the House 306-97, states that special elections must be held within 45 days if 100 or more House members are killed or, in some way, unable to fulfill their duties for example, in the event of a terrorist attack, or a floor collapse at a strip club."

"About 30 parishioners from St. Elizabeth's Church in the Fruitvale district took a symbolic whack at gun violence Sunday by hammering handguns into art."

"The gun-smashing event was sponsored by the Franciscan Justice, Peace & Integrity Office, which has been collecting handguns for the last two months in order to transform them into various sculptures, including an altar for gunshot victims."

"UC Davis researchers are releasing their second annual report on handgun commerce in California. The study outlines how, and by whom, nearly 200,000 handguns are sold legally in the state each year." ...

"Gun violence is important to all of us. Each year it accounts for nearly 30,000 deaths nationwide and more than 3,000 in California. To date there have been no complete, accurate data about how handguns are bought and sold..."

-------
If course, this "physician" doesn't differentiate between self-defense shootings, suicides or other kinds of homicides. He intimates that legally sold guns are somehow responsible for the shootings, and he fails to mention that he and his ilk kill more people in the US annually than firearms do.

NJ: Buyback nets 192 guns

"Saturday's gun buyback netted 192 firearms, which came as a pleasant surprise to Cumberland County Prosecutor Ron Casella."

"Casella, whose office was one of the event's principal sponsors, said he was grateful, but puzzled about the large number of guns turned in."

"But Rev. Charles Wilkins, the pastor of Bethel AME, said it would have been impossible to advocate health awareness without addressing community safety issues first."

" 'How can you talk about health and nutrition when we're allowing our teenagers to shoot each other?' Wilkins said. 'We have a problem with violence and we obviously have a weapons problem here.' "

-------
This is too amusing. The church provides an easy way for criminals to dispose of the guns they used to commit crimes and even pays them for the honor, and the prosecutor is surprised that 192 guns were turned in?

Meanwhile, the good reverend thinks that making it easy for thugs to get rid of their crime guns without worrying about being caught will stop crime? What a joke!

"They will be marching against the ownership of guns, period, not against criminals but any private ownership of guns."

"I agree, gun deaths don't make us safer, but guns themselves are not the problem. Unregistered, unlicensed illegal guns are the problem. Guns in the hands of gang members, thugs and other criminals are the problem."

Two men appearing to be foreigners made off with over 6 million yen in cash from a local government-funded company after tying up five employees in the predawn hours of Monday, police said.

At around 12:10 a.m., two men carrying what appeared to be guns broke into a company affiliated with the Utsunomiya Municipal Government and tied up five people in the office with electric cords, according to investigators.

The robbers stole about 1 million yen in cash kept in the office. They then pried open a safe and stole about 5.2 million yen in cash from it.

The company employees told investigators that the robbers appeared to be foreigners judging from the way they talked.

The company manages a municipal park in the city.

"Every federal law currently on the books would be given a sunset period of 12 years.*"

"In ten years EVERY Current federal law would become null and void. This does not include amendments, but does include everything else ever passed by congress."

"In this sunset period Congress will be forced to review each law that it deems of value enough to be considered to become federal law again. It will then undergo the same process any bill undergoes on its way through congress, then if it passes there it will go onto the president for approval, if the president approves it does not become law, it then moves to the Supreme Court. The Court will then decide if the federal law is constitutional, if it is, it will then be passed and the supreme court will have set a legal precedent on that law, their opinion will have been written up. No one can overturn the Courts decision. No bill can sit in the Supreme Court forever or until it dies, the court must decide on each law. The court will not have any say over Constitutional Amendments, as the constitution is their guide for making decisions."

Tenth letter on the page.

A Libertarian responds to a newspaper "Letter to the Editor" urging banning guns "for the children." He makes excellent points.

The Constitution doesn't grant our rights, it protects existing rights.

A certain level of violent crime means job security for police, politicians and the gun confiscation lobby, so it's in their interest to let repeat offenders slide again and again.

Self-defense is sacred.

"The right to own and carry the means of self-defense is a 'natural' right. It is part of us - no one 'bestowed' it upon us. The right of self-defense is not 'granted' by the Constitution but is recognized and protected by it. The Second, Ninth, and 10th Amendments spell this out quite clearly."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Tennessee state troopers will soon carry Bushmaster semiautomatic assault rifles on patrol. Currently, state troopers are issued Glock 357-caliber Magnum handguns.
They also carry a "back-up" handgun, and a 12-gauge shotgun in each patrol car.

Tennessee Highway Patrol officials say they are buying 1,000 of the semiautomatic weapons to give troopers the ability to "resort to deadly" and "accurate means of force" if put in a dangerous situation.

The weapons were purchased with proceeds of property and money that troopers seized as ill-gotten gains from criminal activity.

About 97 officers from the Tennessee Highway Patrol's Chattanooga district were trained to use the weapons last week. The remaining officers should receive instruction by mid-June.

-------
But the gun banners continuously tell us that these weapons have no use save for killing as many people as possible! Surely they don't want the police to spray civilians with bullets, do they?

"New York - In a move widely regarded as an anti-dissent crackdown on behalf of the imminent Republican National Convention, the NYC District Attorney has defined protest speech as 'criminal', urging jail time for activists who have a history of dissent. The DA's office made the statement in a letter outlining sentencing recommendations for 16 activists recently convicted for non-violent civil disobedience."

"The letter demands the judge jail eight defendants out of the sixteen, citing prior records of protest activity. However, none of cases cited involved criminal charges, and the vast majority were dismissed."
