Well back on page 5A was the article on the Justice Department and their backing of individuals right to bear arms. What a slight relief it is to see things back in-sync."

Armed Citizenry Best Deterrent Toward Property Crime

"America's millions of gun owners are people too. Law-abiding, responsible citizens do not and should not need to ask anyone's permission or approval to engage in a peaceful activity. Gun ownership, by itself, harms no other person and cannot morally justify criminal penalties. America's founders fought the Revolutionary War to throw off British tyranny. Most of the revolutionaries owned and used their own guns in that war."

At a gun show "I wasn't just frightened by the number of guns, knives, ammunition and other weapons of mass destruction. I was also taken aback by the anti-government (and at that time, anti-president) propaganda so prominently displayed. But I've come to learn that that is the nature of gun shows and gun-show enthusiasts."

"Yes indeed, those people unnerve me more than do the guns." -- Bob Ray Sanders, Star Telegram

"A 45-caliber Glock pistol is a popular weapon among criminals these days, and ballistics expert Dean DeYoung admits that it also is one of his favorites. For a different reason."

"When the gun is fired, and the bullet shoots through the barrel, telltale marks are left on the slug. If that slug is dug out of a victim, DeYoung said, it often is easy to match it to the weapon."

"The city of Modesto has been ordered to reinstate a key figure from the Police Department's gun sale fiasco of the late 1990s and award her $182,000 in back pay."

"The gun sale, which ran from February 1996 through July 1997, resulted in the sale of as many as 241 handguns to 97 active-duty and reserve Modesto police officers.
The sale was mishandled and ran afoul of state law because required paperwork was missing and the guns were not sold through a licensed firearms dealer."

"So now Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft thinks he gets to rewrite the Constitution to reflect his personal opinions. His pronouncement this week that the 2nd Amendment guarantees individuals the right to own guns, despite six decades of federal policy and U.S. Supreme Court decisions to the contrary, is another audacious move by a man who mistakenly thinks his job is to make, not enforce, the law."

"A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

"Gun-shy Americans may wish it said, "The powers of the States to muster a well-regulated Militia shall not be infringed." But James Madison's words were the "right of the people."

"When Madison wrote "right" and "people," he meant individuals. That's what those terms mean in the Bill of Rights and elsewhere."

"Livesay, a Republican since 1969, said the amount of gun-related crime in Howard County _ along with the dangers such crimes pose to his officers _ proves the need to take guns off the streeet."

"It is against the law to own a handgun in Chicago, except for those registered before 1982. It is against the law to sell a handgun, or buy one or, except for security guards, police and such, to carry one around."

"But even good things can have dire consequences. Banning handguns means that women who are being stalked, as Ronyale White was before her death Friday, cannot legally arm themselves against those who would harm them. We demand that they take out court orders to protect themselves." -- Chicago Sun Times
