... "Alberto Gonzales: 'The fact that this authority has not been used for these kinds of records means that the department, in my judgment, has acted judiciously. It's comparable to a police officer who carries a gun for 15 years and never draws it. Does that mean that for the next five years he should not have that weapon because he's never used it?'"

"Sen. Arlen Specter: 'Attorney General Gonzales, I don't think your analogy is apt, but if you want to retain those records as your position, I understand.'" ...

"Imagine an America where every law-abiding citizen — say, age 21 and up — is armed regularly with a gun: no need to conceal it, no need to store it when entering a restaurant or bar, no need to lock it up."

"Gun rights advocates favor such an America, and they’ve got gun control activists on their heels. A report this week in The New York Times notes that many officials, including state legislators and prosecutors, are trying to expand or establish laws allowing concealed handguns. Since 2003, The Times reports, five states have approved laws allowing people to carry concealed weapons. And in the wake of the fatal school shootings on an Indian reservation in Minnesota last month, a top official with the National Rifle Association suggested arming teachers in the classroom." ...

"Paul Bucher, the district attorney for the Wisconsin county where a man opened fire in a church service last month, killing seven people and himself, has one answer to the deadly mass shootings around the country in recent weeks: more guns."

"'The problems aren't the guns, it's the guns in the wrong hands,' said Mr. Bucher, a Republican who recently announced his candidacy for Wisconsin attorney general. 'We need to put more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Whether having that would have changed what happened is all speculation, but it would level the playing field. If the person you're fighting has a gun and all you have is your fists, you lose.'" ...

Gov. Jeb Bush said Tuesday he intends to sign a bill that would allow people who feel threatened — even on the street or at a baseball game — to "meet force with force" and defend themselves without fear of prosecution.

The measure, the top priority of the National Rifle Association in Florida this year, passed the House 94-20 on Tuesday. It had already passed the Senate."

Submitter's Note: This bill was also supported by the Florida Patrolman’s Benevolent Association.

"Bush, who has championed tougher penalties for people convicted of using guns in crimes, said the bill is about self-defense and called it 'a good, common sense, anti-crime issue.'" ...

A Hartford police officer has been charged with insurance fraud for allegedly setting fire to a car he was leasing.

Officer Luis Raimundi is accused of torching the car, then reporting it stolen to avoid paying excess mileage fees.

Raimundi was charged yesterday with insurance fraud and first-degree larceny. He was released after posting 20-thousand dollars bond.

Raimundi was arrested after an investigation into the Mitsubishi he had been leasing. Raimundi reported it stolen in April of 2004. The car was later discovered near Charter Oak Terrace after it had been burned.

Police say because Raimundi had exceeded the mileage limit, he faced thousands of dollars in fees.

".50 caliber sniper rifles, powerful enough to shoot down civilian airplanes during takeoff or landing, or taxiing on the runaway from over a mile away are 'weapons of terror' said Patrick Thompson, Chairman of the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence. The Illinois House of Representatives is expected to vote on the 'Anti-Terrorism and Aviation Protection Act,' (H.B. 1098) in a matter of days. The homeland security measure is part of a bi-partisan legislative effort to keep the most deadly and powerful sniper rifles on the market out of the hands of terrorists to prevent a deadly attack on Illinois aviation or vulnerable chemical or industrial targets." ...

KABA Note: Yes, if there was such a thing as ".50 caliber sniper rifles, powerful enough to shoot down civilian airplanes" they certainly would be "weapons of terror". As well to try to ban the Tooth Fairy because she might cause a plane to crash by getting sucked into a jet engine.

Police say $3 million of pseudoephedrine, which can be used to make illegal drugs, has been stolen during an armed hold-up in north-west Sydney.

Investigators say three men armed with shotguns and pistols threatened employees at a pharmaceutical manufacturing company at Castle Hill last night.

The trio ordered two staff members to open a safe where the drugs were being stored.

The workers were not hurt.

Detectives are now interviewing witnesses.

Pseudoephedrine is used to make cold and flu tablets, but can also be used to make illicit drugs.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Our Founding Fathers were proud that Americans were trusted with arms because they knew that only when people are armed could they truly be thought of as free citizens. And that's where the circle closes. Those who want to deprive you of your right to keep and bear arms are intending to deprive you of your freedom, period. Like the criminals their policies encourage, these elitists know that it is always best to disarm victims before you enslave them. — Charley Reese
