Gunning for A Bad Book

"What has become Bellesiles’s nightmare began when a historian, suspecting nothing and hoping to build upon Bellesiles’s data, asked for more details about the 18th- and early-19th-century probate records that Bellesiles says show that guns were infrequently listed among the estates of deceased people."

"When Bellesiles’s evasive response led to more tugging on the threads of his argument, it unraveled. The unraveling revealed a pattern of gross misstatements of facts and unfounded conclusions."

"for the first time, I had something confiscated."

"Was it the yo-yo, a great boredom reliever and aboriginal hunting weapon? ...the Fisher space pen, 2.5 inches of machined steel that makes a wonderful dan-bon? ...the pile of loose change, which together with the handkerchief and a bit of dental floss makes a nifty blackjack?"

"According to the nice lady that searched me, the most dangerous thing I had was: A roll of electrical tape. Her explanation: I "might tie up somebody's hands with it."

"The US State Department has imposed legislation which says that arms exported from the USA must stay in the country to which they are sent – and cannot be re-exported. While clearly intended to stop ... small arms in countries that either condone or participate in terrorist activities, this move has ensnared Browning’s European distribution in its wake – chiefly because America does not recognise the European Union as a single market for the purposes of this legislation."

"The crazy world of gun imports to the USA gets crazier still as America’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) clarifies its regulations on people entering the USA in order to go shooting. It looks like it leaves shooting ranges out in the cold and it’s bad news for anyone transferring to a different flight at a US airport."

To: James Baker at NRA-ILA

"We, the undersigned, as citizens of the United States, do hereby claim our disgust and distrust of Georgia's governor Roy Barnes, his dictatorship-style of ruling and disregard for the will of the people and therefore; wholeheartedly object to another four years of Roy Barnes as governor and do not wish the NRA, or any other organization of which we are members, to make any official endorsements of Roy Barnes for any office now or in the future."

Most Americans support the concept of arming the pilots. Unfortunately, they don't always have the best information available to explain their position. This response to a Washington Times editorial refutes the commonly held, but false, assumptions about the dangers of firearms in airplanes.

Gun Control Doesn't Work -- "After September 11th, there have been many calls to arm our pilots, but the anti-gun lobby has contained this discussion with their usual scare tactics. How can we trust our pilots with a big Boeing, that has proven to be much more effective weapon than a gun, but not trust them with a personal gun? Imagine the scene aboard one of the Sept.11 aircraft if one of those pilots had been armed with a 10mm pistol and frangible ammunition."

"A change of policy can be advantageous to people on both sides of an issue. In fact, the debate over the 2nd Amendment is one of those cases."

"If the Supreme Court were to embrace a new interpretation of the 2nd Amendment, both sides would have to stop fantasizing and start dealing rationally with how to balance the rights of gun owners with the safety of everyone else. It may take Ashcroft's "extremism" to foster moderation."

"Bill Jenkins doesn't buy the argument that if his son had carried a gun, he would be alive today. He was ambushed, so even if he had had a gun, it wouldn't have done him any good."

"Jenkins said he knows where he can get the help to make those things happen: "When we're victimized ... we don't go to the NRA for help. We go to the gun control people."

"Hours after Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris killed 13 people at Columbine High School, authorities obtained search warrants for their homes using year-old evidence."

"The silver-haired 59-year-old grandmother -- who's co-owner with her husband of the Ozark Shooters Sport Complex, a gun shop and shooting range in Walnut Shade, Mo. -- is well trained in all manners of gunwomanship, and makes sure the rest of the females in the family are too."

"Whatever your views on guns, you should be happy that HB1410 is finally dead. ... The sponsorship of this concealed-weapons bill was disingenuous, cowardly and irresponsible."

"When I pointed out to him that House Speaker Doug Dean, a strong gun supporter, was among those who said that the bill did, in fact, pre-empt local control, Chlouber sputtered something about the value of uniformity in handing out conceal-carry permits."

"Six years ago, the Democratic Party put guns in its political cross hairs. Trying to help Senate candidate Tom Strickland, the party mailed brochures with dramatic photos of a cemetery burial service and a blunt headline: "How many more will die before Wayne Allard votes to ban assault weapons?"

"Oh, how times have changed. Strickland is trying again to win a Senate seat from Allard, but he's campaigning with a different message. "We don't need any more gun control," Strickland said."
