Submitted by: Newslinks Director

"O'Brien describes herself as a "strong advocate of gun control" and a supporter of "the gun law legislation passed in Massachusetts, giving the state the most comprehensive gun laws in the nation." Yet as a legislator, she did not support an effort to hold a vote on ... a comprehensive statewide ban on assault weapons."

Gun Owners Action League of Massachusetts (GOAL.org) usually gave O'Brian a rating of A- as Senator.

"Witnesses said Bethea went to Page's house, near downtown Benton Harbor in southwestern Michigan, on Nov. 2 because one of Page's daughters had spat on Bethea's nephew. They said the women argued, and Bethea grabbed Page and pushed her across the porch. Page then shot Bethea."

"I never was trying to kill her. She was choking me," Page said during her sentencing hearing Monday.

--If Page had been an LEO, it would have been judged "justified". This case reeks of bias.

"The U.S. government plans to decide this week whether it will let airline pilots carry stun guns in the cockpit, an anti-terror measure that key officials favor over arming crew members with hand guns."

"While government and industry sources believe the U.S. Transportation Dept will grant at least provisional authority for airlines to arm their flight deck crews with those devices, pilots frustrated with the administration on their call to carry firearms will push their case in Congress."

"the cherished Old West tradition of open desert shooting is now bumping up against modern, Sun Belt realities of encroaching urbanization and increasing recreational use of the 2-year-old monument."

"People don't have the faintest idea that there are kids, cattle or horses around here. I've had some very close calls - within 15 or 20 feet - with high-powered rifles," said Steve Lehning, who ranches 18,000 acres inside the monument.

Marco Kaltofen proudly re-enacts the Revolutionary War exploits of 170 men from his hometown of Natick, Mass.

"We want people to remember the many sacrifices of the original Minutemen," said Kaltofen, a captain with the group.

So when they need muskets from the 1760s such a "Brown Bess" or a "Charleville," the group advises members to shop with Dixie Gun Works, a company tucked in the northwest corner of Tennessee where America's history of firearms thrives.

Police said two officers fired their weapons at the scene. One was described as an accidental discharge. Police said the other occurred when an officer fired upon armed individuals participating in the fight.

--What is refered to as "accidental" was actually "negligent." These are the guys that the socialist liberals claim should be the only people "allowed" to have guns?

If you saw the film of this you understand why this was no "accident."

But their treachery is not limited to deception. These people fill body bags. How many more people have to die before we either force the members CONgress get their heads out of their asses and develop a sane policy for domestic sources of energy or replace them? In my opinion, this is the most important issue of national security we face. If OPEC one day decides it no longer want to do business with the US what would we do? What choice will we have?

"Sen. Ernest F. "Fritz" Hollings, that is, the South Carolina Democrat who finally introduced his long-dreaded copy protection bill into Congress."

"Hollings' bill, formerly referred to as the SSSCA (Security Systems Standards and Certification Act) but now dubbed the Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act (CBDTPA), would require any device that can "retrieve or access copyrighted works in digital form" to include a federally mandated copy protection system."

"National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre told his association's convention in Reno, Nevada Saturday that if airline pilots been allowed to carry guns, the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks against New York and the Pentagon wouldn't have happened."

"What would have made 9-11 impossible? If those pilots on those four airplanes had the right to be armed. When you think about it, they should have been armed 30 years ago. It's a no brainer," said LaPierre.

"The laws, which took effect this week, stop the public from gaining access to search warrants and affidavits. It deems them nonpublic records."

"Lawmakers - who unanimously voted for the measures in the Senate and House of Representatives - said the laws protect crime victims, informants and witnesses from criminals and the media. But civil libertarians and First Amendment lawyers argue they invite police abuse and curtail public scrutiny."

The arrest came as federal prosecutors in Central Florida and across the country step up efforts to enforce gun laws -- a priority set by U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft."

"The Attorney General has taken a zero-tolerance stance to violent crimes and firearms offenses."

"Firearm retailers say gun sales rose, especially among women, after Sept. 11, but gun-control groups and some 'women’s rights activists' say those statistics are exaggerated."

"Our once free republic is slowly but surely morphing into a police state. At one point in time, the idea of a national police force was anathema to any thinking American, but sadly, that time is passing if it's not already gone. The implications of a recent press release from John Ashcroft's Justice Department are chilling. The Bush administration is using the unconstitutional USA PATRIOT act to destroy the ideals of freedom laid down by our founders and his chief agent is John Ashcroft."

"The ruling elite thinks that we do not care, because we do not get involved. We leave the job of running our government to starry-eyed youngsters, fresh from the corrupt halls of higher learning and interested only in careers in politics."

"If you were so stupid as to register your guns with the city... they know you got them! You just lost your guns! And since the criminals didn't bother to register they get to keep theirs! Again the city is going out of it's way to coddle gang bangers and make the streets safe for them."

"Ohio is one of the states in which the government trusts the people the least as measured by its law governing the concealed carry of a firearm. The current law is a virtual ban. One can, if one is feeling lucky, carry concealed. But if a police officer becomes aware of the measures you have taken to protect your life, he will probably arrest you (unless he is one of those old fashioned adherents of the Constitution who still puts the Constitution over "just following orders")."

"The Justice Department will fund a gun-crime team that will coordinate local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and prosecution efforts."

--A "gun-crime" team? Now they are hyphenating it, like crimes with guns are different somehow than crimes without them. Robbery is robbery. Rape is rape. Murder is murder.

"A man who shot at a robbery suspect fleeing from a convenience store in January has been charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon" and "one count of reckless endangering and one count of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit."

--We have to be careful not to shoot at someone who is FLEEING. The problem is he probably will be charged with "carrying without a permit" even if the shooting is found to be self-defense. Perhaps the jury will refuse to convict him.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
You must understand, therefore, that there are two ways of fighting: by law or by force. The first way is natural to men, and the second to beasts. But as the first way often proves inadequate one must have recourse to the second. — Niccolo Machiavelli in "The Prince."
