CCRKBA Lauds N.M. Gov. Bill Richardson for Signing CCW Reform Legislation

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) today applauded New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson for signing legislation that expands his state's concealed carry law, allowing more citizens to legally arm themselves for personal protection."

"'Not only did Gov. Richardson's signature extend the valid term of a concealed pistol license to four years,' said CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron, 'but he also lowered the minimum age for obtaining a license to 21 years, and in the process, he recognized the new law as a crime-reduction measure.'" ...
 

High court to rule on right to sue government

"In America, everybody sues everybody. ... However, there is one entity that individuals cannot sue when their rights are neglected: the state. Granted, individuals have legal recourse when the government actively violates their rights, but it is still controversial as to whether or not the government should be held responsible for failing to prevent rights violations by private actors." ...

"In 1989, the Court ruled in a similar case that the government could not be sued for violations of rights that were committed by private individuals. ... [E]ven when under the direct care of the state, an individual should not expect the state to fully guarantee his physical security." ...

"In the wake of the 1999 Columbine High School gun massacre, most Americans were so fed up with the country's wild and woolly gun laws -- or non-laws -- that even the [NRA] went into a brief strategic retreat. Congress was suddenly awash in sensible gun-control proposals, and the NRA came out for trigger locks and 'absolutely gun-free' schools."

"But that was then and this is now. Not only did significant control measures fail after Columbine, but the NRA came roaring back so fast that in 2000 it helped defeat Al Gore. ... And by this year the anti-gun-control atmosphere was so thick and enveloping that when a series of spectacular shootings over the past two months cut down more than 25 Americans, the cry that went up in legislatures across the land was not for more gun control but less." ...

"A high school student in Red Lake, Minn., kills his grandfather and eight other people before turning the gun on himself; a man shoots his ex-wife and a bystander outside a courthouse in Tyler, Texas; a disappointed litigant in a malpractice case kills a federal judge's husband and mother in Chicago; a rape defendant in Atlanta overpowers a police officer, seizes her gun, and shoots three people to death; and a man walks into a church service at a hotel near Milwaukee and shoots 12 people, killing eight."

"Instead of reevaluating its dogmatic devotion to guns as the answer to every question, the gun lobby has its story and is sticking to it: If only the victims in these cases had been armed (or in the Tyler and Atlanta cases, more heavily armed), then violence could have been avoided or stopped by a gun-wielding citizen." ...

"The facts of Danny Guzman's death are beyond dispute: The 26-year-old father of two from Worcester was cut down by a stray bullet fired outside of a nightclub on Christmas Eve in 1999."

"The gun used to kill him, police determined, was stolen from a local gun factory by an employee, a crack addict who supported his habit by trading half-finished guns for drugs and cash. The weapon was taken from an assembly line before it was stamped with a serial number, making it a hot commodity in the criminal underworld." ...

"And a bill before Congress would shield the company, and others in the gun industry, from civil lawsuits like the one brought by the Hernandez family, on behalf of Guzman, the son of Juana Hernandez." ...
 

Top 50 Caliber Sniper Rifle Manufacturer, Barrett Firearms, Boasts That 50 Caliber Sniper Rifles Are Capable of 'Destroying Multi-Million Dollar Aircraft With a Single Hit'

"A marketing brochure from Barrett Firearms boasts that its 50 caliber sniper rifles are capable of destroying aircraft with a single shot. The company brochure released today by the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence states that jet engines and helicopters "are likely targets for the weapon [50 caliber sniper rifle], making it capable of destroying multi-million dollar aircraft with a single hit delivered to a vital area." The marketing brochure from the late 80's has now become a damning and embarrassing admission by the gun lobby and 50 caliber manufacturers who are now attempting to deny and obfuscate the terrorist threat posed by these lethal weapons. Although Barrett Firearms still markets and sells the model 82-A1 50 caliber sniper rifle -- the model highlighted in the company's brochure -- Barrett Firearms has tried to mislead the media by stating that the brochure referred to rifles only available to the military, an assertion that is simply not true." ...

"President Bush has called the Minutemen, who are now patrolling the U.S.-Mexican border 'vigilantes.' I suppose that Bush believes anyone who wishes to help enforce our laws and maintain U.S. sovereignty is a vigilante. ..."

"Despite the erroneous propaganda perpetuated by the liberal media, the ACLU, the Mexican government, and even our president, the Minutemen are not a group of wild-eyed racists--with bloodlust in their hearts. They are retired police officers, former military men, laborers, businessmen, moms, and dads, in short--they are a cross section of America. The only difference between these Americans and most of us, is the fact that they are willing to sacrifice their time and are even willing to put themselves in harm's way. ..." ...

"The Milwaukee District Attorney's office "made the right call" in deciding not to file any charges against a 64-year-old man who fatally shot one of five youths who attacked him in a gas station April 3, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today."

"Milwaukee Assistant District Attorney Karen Loebel made the announcement after reviewing the evidence from the Sunday morning shooting. The older man, from Yorktown, Ark., had stopped at the gas station, apparently to ask for directions. Kendall Moss, 20, reportedly tried to rob the man, and an altercation erupted in which Moss and several youths beat and kicked the victim before he pulled a gun from under the front seat of his van and fired." ...

"... Kendall L. Moss, 20, was among a group of cousins who demanded that the man turn over his van and money."

"The man refused, Schwartz said, and Moss and his cousins began punching him. The boys then took the man's walking cane and beat him with that, she said."

"The Senate shot down a bill that would have spelled out that people have a right to use guns to defend themselves Tuesday."

"House Bill 693 by Rep. Jack Wells, R-Bozeman, died an unusual death. It was first amended by senators to strike out everything in the bill except one small section prohibiting employers from firing employees who keep guns in vehicles parked in the company parking lot."

"The Senate then moved to indefinitely postpone the bill because the amendment pretty much erased its entire purpose."

"Sen. Mike Wheat, D-Bozeman, who suggested the amendment, was pleased to see the bill go down."

"'We don't need to go down this road where everybody starts arming themselves and killing people,' he said." ...

FL: Force Measure Goes Too Far

"Goaded by the National Rifle Association, the Florida Legislature has gone trigger-happy. It's up to Gov. Jeb Bush to keep a cooler head."

"Not only have legislators passed a bill that would encourage violent and perhaps fatal confrontations in public places, but they acted so quickly and determinedly that they all but ignored the warnings of opponents about likely consequences."

"The 'meet force with force' bill (SB 436) won final House passage on Tuesday after passing the Senate earlier. Inexplicably, both votes were overwhelmingly in favor of the measure, which would broaden and codify the common-law principle known as the 'castle doctrine,' which permits people to use lethal force to protect themselves against intruders in their homes or automobiles." ...

"By unanimously passing the 'Stand Your Ground' bill, Florida's state Senate has voted in favor of violence."

"The bill allows people feeling threatened to retaliate with the force they feel is necessary. But the law already gives citizens the right to defend themselves in their homes, cars and workplace."

"Traditionally, using deadly force in self-defense is allowed only after the person being attacked makes an attempt to flee. But according to the sponsor of the bill, '[Attempting flight] is a good way to get shot in the back.'"

"The only thing this measure does is give people who already own guns greater license to use them. Maybe that's the hope of the bill's largest supporter: the National Rifle Association." ...

"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."

"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.'"

"The measure essentially extends a right Floridians already have in their home or car. Under present law, however, people attacked anywhere else are supposed to do what they can to avoid escalating the situation and can use deadly force only after they've tried to retreat." ...

"The Protection of Persons and Property bill passed by the Legislature Tuesday is an example of what passes for governance in our state when too many lawmakers read from the same page in the Book of Political Cowardice."

"In this case, the page that was copied into law was written by the National Rifle Association. Lawmakers see it as a winning hand because it has the appearance of being 'tough on crime.' So the bill passed overwhelmingly in both houses, including with the support of some lawmakers who obviously know better. Gov. Jeb Bush has promised to sign it." ...

"According to Marion Hammer, former president of the National Rifle Association and the key lobbyist on a new gun law that just whizzed through the legislature, 'there are over 6 million law-abiding firearms owners in the state of Florida.'"

"And she just landed them a mighty big victory. 'As the governor says, this is common sense stuff,' Hammer said Wednesday by phone from her Tallahassee office. Under a bill headed for Gov. Jeb Bush's desk, it would no longer be 'technically' illegal to shoot a guy who's abducted you from the Kmart parking lot." ...

"I say 'technically' because — for the life of me — I cannot remember the last time someone faced criminal charges for shooting an armed kidnapper, or a carjacker with a knife." ...

KABA Note: Perhaps the writer should get out more. Harold Fish has been repeatedly charged for what Sheriff's investigators call a clear self-defense shooting.

"In the days since the massacre, investigators have captured two suspects, both military policemen. They are alleged to be part of a group of renegade officers terrorizing the area to dissuade a crackdown on crooked cops. Police are still hunting other suspects." ...

"The Illinois House defeated another gun control bill supported by Mayor Daley Wednesday, continuing the National Rifle Association's long winning streak at the Capitol."

"The measure, sponsored by Rep. Robert Molaro (D-Chicago), would have allowed gun violence victims to sue gun dealers. The proposal could only muster 48 'yes' votes, well short of the 60 needed to pass."

"Under the bill, a dealer would be liable in a suit only if it sold the gun to a person it knew would use it illegally, or a so-called "straw purchaser" who's buying the weapon for someone else who is banned from gun ownership." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Editor, Times-Dispatch: Regarding the story, "Monroe Wants Use of Force Reviewed": The article discussed the city Police Department's request of the U.S. Justice Department to review its police shootings for the previous five years. I was not surprised when I saw attorney Steven Benjamin had again used the T-D as a platform to excoriate police officers.

Benjamin stated: "Because the training is inadequate, both police officers and the citizens of Richmond are at greater danger of serious harm," and "if officers are adequately trained, everybody will be safer." As a city resident, I appreciate Benjamin's concern for my safety. However, the fact remains that a Richmond resident is far more likely to be robbed, assaulted, or murdered by a gun-toting criminal than he is to be injured by a police officer.

Meanwhile, representatives of the Illinois State Rifle Association plan to hold a news conference this afternoon to discuss gun legislation in Springfield. The association says it advocates safe and lawful firearms ownership.

Gun control has become one of the most contentious issues of this legislative session, as the gun-rights lobby has blocked several gun-control measures in the Democrat-controlled Legislature.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
