" 'The so-called 'Million Mom March' generates today into a thousand gang limp,' John Michael Snyder, public affairs director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), said here this afternoon." ...

"He notes that on Thursday of this past week the Brady bunch ran a full-page ad in The Washington Post which must have cost the group over $50,000 calling on supporters gathering 'on the West Front of the Capitol to demand that President Bush and Congress save the assault weapons ban.' "

"I have been around firearms all my life. I became an activist after my son Joey was murdered and the anti-gunners started to use him as their 'poster boy' to further their unconstitutional agenda of gun control." ...

"...I am not willing to let my personal tragedy cloud my rational thinking. Gun Control ALWAYS leads to confiscation and TYRANNY!"

"Firearm freedoms are always in jeopardy. Whenever the MMM, Brady Campaign and VPC gather to conspire to disarm Americans with their emotional lies, Armed Females of America will be close by."

"The Gun Violence Victims Service was organized by the Austin Chapter of the Million Mom March – a group that fights for tougher gun control laws."

" 'We have gun owners in our group, we have hunters, we even have some NRA members, but we feel like it is a common sense concept to restrict access to guns to people who should not have them,' Mike McAnally, Austin chapter president, says."

" 'It's more about the loss these people have experienced because of gun violence,' Ana Astalis says.

"And to inspire them to turn their grief into action."

"More than 2,000 Texans were killed by guns and firearms in 2002."

"At the Million Mom March in Washington, D.C. activists plan to ask Congress to renew the federal ban on assault weapons."
 

Thousand Mom March a Puny Showing, Canceled by C-SPAN

This report shows a picture that gives you and idea of how puny the Thousand Mom March event in D.C. was on Mother's Day. C-SPAN was supposed to cover the event but canceled coverage because it was a dismal flop.

Even the lying MMM Klan only claims "thousands" of participants -- and is probably counting the counter-protestors from the Second Amendment sisters in that number. In that press release from the number-inflating pro-criminal crowd, we find that semi-automatic rifles are now "reckless killing machines", proving once again, for the zillionth time, that these people actually think firearms are alive.
 

2,000 Mom March is Going Forward?

They knew only a few people would show up in D.C. Such is their "movement":

. . . "And today, when Thomases turns up on the Capitol steps for a second march, there won't be nearly as many moms - or movie stars or media - with her. Rather, Thomases is expecting a modest turnout of committed activists focused not on a broad agenda, but on a single piece of legislation: the federal assault weapons ban due to expire on Sept. 13." ...

Modest is right. 2,000 people showed up.

"It might seem she has gone backward, but Thomases insists that she has not." ...

Yeah. Going from 50,000 (which they lied and called 750,000) to 2,000 is going forward, Lady. Keep on going forward, please.

"Another Democratic representative, Carolyn McCarthy of New York's Long Island, urged people to volunteer to spread the word about the expiring assault weapons ban. McCarthy's husband was among six people killed and her son was one of 19 wounded in a 1993 shooting spree aboard a Long Island Rail Road commuter train."

" 'We don't want to come back here on Mother's Day again. We want to be with our families and loved ones,' McCarthy said. 'Let's do it. Let's make it permanent.' "

Don't worry. If they succeed in making the ban permanent, you can be sure they will find another portion of your rights to whine away.

"Mrs. Nugent came to Washington yesterday, but she left her .38-caliber revolver and her rock star husband, Ted, at home."

"He would have been out of place anyway at the Conservative Women's Network luncheon, where a roomful of Washington's elite ladies heard the mantra of empowerment through firepower." ...

"Whether owning guns deters crime against women has been a contentious issue in the larger gun debate, with both sides referring to studies that give conflicting answers. Either way, the female gun lobby is a growing force."

"Proponents of a new state law allowing people to carry hidden guns say the application process should be easier."

" 'A conceal/carry permit shouldn't be any different than a driver's license or a marriage license,' said Gerard Valentino of suburban Pickerington, regional representative of Ohioans for Concealed Carry."

"Applicants in Delaware County can turn in their paperwork immediately but have to wait about a month to get their permits. Sheriff Al Myers issued the first two permits in the county Tuesday. Nearly 400 applications are pending."

"Here, a small town called Virgin once passed a law requiring that all households have a firearm. Here, an American with a concealed-weapons permit from any state can carry a handgun into a day-care center or an elementary school, and residents once protested a speech by Vice President Dick Cheney because they weren't allowed to bring their weapons." ...

"That leaves Utah as the standard bearer for expanding the rights of gun owners, and its battle with the university is merely the newest addition to a 150-year narrative. Like nearly all the settlers of America's westward expansion, Brigham Young's Mormon pioneers came to this valley armed, and after they arrived they quickly set up the Nauvoo Legion - an unofficial frontier army."

"The flight was proceeding normally when the first officer of the Boeing 727 cargo plane left the cockpit to use the lavatory. In a matter of seconds, however, everything changed as a knife-wielding stowaway rushed the cockpit and attacked the captain."

" 'My God, what are you doing?' the pilot yelled before the first officer emerged from the bathroom and shot the terrorist."

"That scene was staged here recently as part of the Transportation Security Administration's first training program for cargo pilots who will be allowed to carry guns when they fly. Those who participated in the six-day course hope their new status will reduce the risk of a hijacking .."

"Recently, a young career criminal allegedly murdered a San Francisco police officer. (1) What happened after the crime is most instructive in clarifying the point of this paper. Many articles used phrases like 'assault weapon,' 'AK-47,' (2) 'automatic weapon' (3) 'machine-gun fire' and 'gunned down in a spray of bullets.' (4) All these are stock phrases of the gun control cadre."

"They also show the standard ignorance of firearms among gun controllers. The AK-47 in question was not an automatic weapon, and therefore fails the definition of a machine gun or automatic weapon. However, it is indicative of the direction of gun control, which is to define anything that handles more than one shot as an 'automatic weapon.' ..."

"Walt Disney Pictures has made the correct and moral decision not to distribute filmmaker Michael Moore's latest film, "Fahrenheit 9/11." Anything Michael Moore produces is nothing more than political propaganda (Bowling for Columbine), aimed at discrediting America and all who believe in her rich history and hard-won freedoms."

"I, as well as many other Americans have seen the light of truth shed on Mr. Moore - an individual who has repeatedly proven himself to be nothing more than an anti-American zealot who believes in communist doctrine. Mr. Moore continues to attempt to strum the strings of the easily manipulated and misinformed, in an effort to create some sort of divided harmony among Americans. Well it is not working anymore." ...

"The second man punched the store clerk in the face several times before she dropped to the floor."

" 'It was certainly unprovoked,' said Willoughby Police Chief Conrad Straube. "The clerk wasn't even given a chance to comply … the one suspect came in and immediately struck her with a closed fist."

-----
Notice, that the thugs immediately proceeded to violently beat the clerk, so the gun banners' mantra of "just cooperate with your assailant" fails yet again.

Notice also that this happened at a Dairy Mart, the same chain that hung a "no guns allowed" sign on a different store and experienced an armed robbery. Was this a guaranteed helpless victim zone too?

"Kennedy cousin and onetime Maryland legislator Mark Shriver has learned an expensive lesson about pheasant hunting. Rule No. 1: Shoot the pheasant, not the hunting dog."

" 'It was a tragic accident,' says Shriver, who lives in Bethesda and heads literacy programs for Save the Children."

"The hunting guide that day, David Roesler, a police officer in Baltimore County, told us he grew wary after Shriver 'had a misfire' early in the hunt. Not long afterward, Roesler said. 'It just missed me,' he recalled, but Shriver said, 'That is not true at all.' "

"The manager, George Werner, called Shriver a 'very sloppy' hunter who 'did unsafe things.' He said Shriver is barred from ever hunting there again."

"What does H.R. 4100 do?"

"It would allocate $3.125 billion annually -- much of it for government bureaucrats to acquire private lands that have been historically used for hunting and fishing."

"Hollywood stars are not the only people to be hounded by stalkers."

"Stalkers are more likely to harass ordinary people than generally thought, according to a study published in Britain on Thursday, which said one in eight British adults are victims of 'persistent or unwanted attention.' "

"However, recent large-scale studies in the USA and Australia suggest the prevalence in the general population may be far higher than expected."

"The authors warned that confrontation generally leads to increased stalking activity and advised victims not to respond or react to their stalker, but to inform the police and document the stalker's behavior."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A woman bit off the lower lip of a fugitive man she said attacked her outside her house in the South African town of Tzaneen, police said on Friday.

They said the man -- who was already wanted on charges of burglary and rape -- waited outside the woman's house for her to return from an errand and then tried to drag her inside.

"This woman managed to grab the lower lip of the man with her teeth and bit it off," police Captain Moatshe Ngoepe told Reuters from the fruit-growing northern Limpopo province town.

The man was arrested when he sought treatment at a nearby hospital. He is due to appear at magistrates court on Friday.
