"...His status is uncertain, and his professional future may be in jeopardy. Why? Because in the aftermath of the Virginia Tech massacre, Scheffler dared to question, criticize and condemn his school's recently-implemented policy of banning concealed weapons on campus." ...

"...And for exercising his right to criticize the ignorant victim disarmament policies of Hamline, this law-abiding citizen, who also happens to be a concealed carry permit holder, was kicked out, told he would have to find a shrink to prove to the panty-wetters who run his school that he is not crazy, and forced to kiss the ass of the dean of students in order to be allowed the 'privilege' of finishing the education for which he paid." ...

"On Mother's Day, May 14, 2000, more than 700,000 mothers and others gathered on the National Mall to demand that Congress take action to protect families and communities from gun violence. In the seven years since that event, the Million Mom March Chapters have continued to work for sensible gun laws.

"Unfortunately, even if Congress beefs up the mental health background check system ... it's all for naught, because of another, much larger loophole. Around the United States, no matter who you are, you can legally buy as many firearms as you want– as long as they're from a private dealer. That's the 'gun show loophole' (so called because many private dealers often set up at gun shows offering guns for 'no paperwork'). ..." ...

"To whom, and for what purpose, does the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution grant the right to 'keep and bear arms'? Examination of the origin and precedents of the language of the Second Amendment may shed light on its meaning." ...

"Individual-rights proponents also claim that the term, 'the people' means each person. That applies only in the sense that each person in a militia may have a firearm. But a militia operates as a unit with a collective purpose: defense of the state. Thus, 'the people' has a collective meaning, just as it does in the Preamble to the Constitution ('We the people') and in the First, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments." ...

Homeowners and renters who shoot intruders would be presumed innocent under a bill the state Assembly passed.

It's already legal to shoot someone who breaks into your house as long as it's done in self-defense.

Carol Owens, R-Oshkosh, sponsored the measure, saying it's not wrong for people to protect themselves.

But opponents say it's likely that burglars who don't mean to harm anybody will pay with their lives.

The Assembly OK'd the change on a voice vote. It now goes to the Senate.

Heinous crimes, like that at Virginia Tech, mustn't stampede America into mandatory gun control laws.

"In Sunday's letter about the 'liberal message' regarding gun control, the writer makes an analogy comparing guns to automobiles, then claims liberals want to ban guns and never place responsibility solely on the murderer."

"First, an automobile's primary purpose is transportation, while a handgun is for protection by threat of lethal force. Automobiles kill people by accident, while guns kill people intentionally and accidentally. However, a driver and automobile owner is required to have a license, registration and an exam to test for knowledge, skills and safety. On the other hand, a gun owner in Florida requires none of the above." ...
