Congress eyes citizenship oath
Submitted by: Anonymous

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Lawmakers on Capitol Hill heard testimony yesterday about a bill that would codify into law the Oath of Allegiance taken by new citizens and prevent changes to its wording unless made by Congress."

The current oath has five elements:

1 - support for the Constitution
2 - renunciation of prior allegiance
3 - defense of the Constitution against foreign and domestic enemies
4 - true faith and allegiance
5 - bearing arms or noncombatant service as required

"...[the new version] would drop the part about bearing arms and replace it with "I further commit myself to defend the Constitution and laws of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, either by military, noncombatant or civilian service."

"Frustrated by the Transportation Security Administration's delay in arming airline pilots with guns, four members of Congress said Thursday they want the agency to quit dragging its feet." ...

"Bunning was joined by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Conrad Burns (R-Mont.) and Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), who is sponsoring a companion bill in the House. But it was the Kentucky senator who had the harshest words for TSA."

" 'They'll get the message or they'll lose their money for the program,' Bunning said. ..."

Ms. Boxer is conveniently pro-gun when it's HER security that's the issue.

"A day after taking a beating on Capitol Hill from members of Congress, the Transportation Security Administration struck back at critics who accused the agency of dragging its feet on its armed pilots program."

" 'We are very passionate about this excellent program,' said Amy von Walter, a TSA spokeswoman. She defended the agency's record and pointed to recent steps taken to improve the training of applicants."

"Four members of Congress gathered Thursday to introduce legislation they said would speed up the process of arming pilots and tear down the barriers that turn off pilots from ever applying."

"As he campaigns to take the White House, John Kerry claims he respects the Second Amendment. But his 20 years of casting anti-gun votes in the U.S. Senate reveal the truth." ...

"At this writing, it looks like John Kerry is well on his way to earning the Democratic nod to run against President Bush. But if Kerry wins, gun owners lose. A review of the votes he has cast since becoming a Senator in 1984 should make all law-abiding gun owners want to scream." ...

"Make no mistake, Kerry is trying to garner support from gun owners. He has repeatedly staged photo-ops afield with his side-by-side... ...But the remarks he delivered at an meeting for party insiders reveal the truth behind his deceptive scheme."
 

.300 Winchester Short Magnum; Is short-package performance enough to ensure success?

"...As of the time of this writing, the factory cartridge listings show four loadings from Winchester: a 150-grain and 180-grain Ballistic Silvertip at 3,300 fps and 3,010, respectively; a 180-grain Fail Safe at 2,970 fps; and a 180-grain Power-Point at 2,970. Federal Cartridge Company also offers several options in this caliber."

"But I haven't heard of many shooters throwing away their .300 Winchester Mags or, for that matter, their .30-06s to go out and buy a .300 WSM, though that doesn't mean a few haven't made the switch. Still, it's early, and I think the jury has yet to return a verdict on the ultimate popularity of this cartridge. ..."

"With wild turkey populations at their zenith and liberal seasons and bag limits now available in nearly every state of the Union, turkeys no longer take a back seat to wide-racked whitetails when it comes to the dedication of the American hunter/conservationists. And while turkey hunting has become special, turkey-hunting gear has become "specialized." This is evident in everything from camouflage boot soles to high-frequency slate calls and magnum shot charges never before dreamed of. Along the way, turkey guns, too, have evolved. ..."
 

Private Guns, Public Health by David Hemenway - Another "Study" Which Looks Only At Costs And Not Benefits

"On an average day in the U.S., guns are used to kill almost eighty people, and to wound nearly three hundred more. If any other consumer product had this sort of disastrous effect, the public outcry would be deafening; yet when it comes to guns such facts are accepted as a natural consequence of supposedly high American rates of violence."

"Private Guns, Public Health explodes that myth and many more, revealing the advantages of treating gun violence as a consumer safety and public health problem."

-------
Note: Motor vehicle accidents kill over 120 people per day and wound 8,363 people per day. Where's the "deafening outcry"?

Note also that guns are used defensively about 2.5 million times each year. Assuming that only one life is at stake in each of those incidents (many times it's more than one), that would make 6,849 lives saved per day.

"Putting the best spin on its humiliating loss in the U.S. Senate last month, the NRA is trumpeting a letter faxed to Senators moments before a final vote on legislation that would have granted the gun industry unprecedented legal immunity. The letter ...urged members to vote against the NRA's top legislative priority..."

"The NRA argues that its issuance of the letter, and the bill's subsequent defeat, proves its political might. In reality, the letter was a desperate attempt to kill legislation over which the gun lobby had lost control. ..."

-------
The AW ban died along with S1805, as did the gun show destruction bill and the gun lock mandate. Gun owners ultimately came out as winners in this. But Horwitz and his cohorts are masters of spin.

"The violence inside California's youth prisons came into Americans' homes Thursday when a chilling videotape of a January beating of two inmates was released as part of a stepped-up effort to prosecute six officers involved in the incident."

"Attorney General Bill Lockyer said he has reviewed the tape of the Jan. 20 incident at a Stockton youth prison 'many, many times' and described the kicking of a 19-year-old inmate after he was subdued as 'excessive force.' "

"Lockyer said his review -- triggered after San Joaquin County prosecutors refused to press charges -- might be finished as early as today."

"Legislation allowing Kansans to carry concealed handguns cleared the House on Thursday and went to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who has said she won't sign the bill in its current form." ...

"Sebelius has said repeatedly she supports allowing concealed carry only for retired law enforcement officers." ...

Considering that the vast majority of US states already allow concealed carry and nowhere did it increase gun-related violence, these opponents' predictions are not based in current reality.

"About 50 of them gathered on the Statehouse steps over the noon hour Friday. They're urging other supporters to call and write Gov. Sebelius, trying to convince her not to pull the trigger on concealed carry."

" 'The question I have for Gov. Sebelius is why are you afraid? Why do you fear law abiding citizens,' said Richard Dyer, a concealed carry supporter."

" 'I cannot understand why anyone would deny me the right to defend myself,' said fellow supporter Carissa McKenzie."

"A measure to allow Kansans to carry concealed weapons passed both the House and the Senate. But Gov. Sebelius said Friday it basically has no future in her office."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A bill that would have banned the sale of 19 semiautomatic guns in Maryland was killed by a single vote Friday in a Senate committee.

The Maryland Assault Weapons Ban of 2004 (Senate Bill 288) was intended to replace a federal ban on military-style guns that is set to expire in September and is not expected to be renewed by Congress.

Gun control advocates saw the bill as their last opportunity this year to strengthen Maryland's gun laws.

The measure was defeated 6-5. Three Democrats joined the three Republican members of the committee in voting against the ban.

"Shooting is one of the two activities that put officers and the city the most at risk of lawsuits, with driving being the other, Dunlap said."

"Boise does recommend carrying a small weapon --- but not mace or a gun."

Because in NY, the best, most effective self defense tool is illegal. New York bureaucrats would rather force a young woman into hand-to-hand combat with a rapist than allow her to fill him with lead.
