"On page A-5 in the May 9, 2002 issue of the San Diego Union Tribune known more accurately in some circles as the 'Soviet Union Tribune' appears an article with the headline "Majority Favors gun control, abortion rights."

"Apparently the basis of the article is from a company that publishes so-called field polls. At the end of the article, the author appropriately included that the poll results were conjured by contacting 343 registered voters and that the margin of error is allegedly 5.6%."

"I can't explain it but, it seems, every time a subject comes up, or I start thinking of something in particular, I always end up, before the day is done, coming across an article or something dealing with that particular subject. It's kinda spooky sometimes how it happens so regularly.

Such was the case this morning. I got up because I couldn't sleep. My demons were haunting me - still. Your article, "The tyranny advances," stated EXACTLY what I was thinking about!"

"Sunday is traditionally a day of rest, when many people attend religious or spiritual services, and also take to the outdoors to enjoy non-hunting activities such as picnicking, biking, hiking or wildlife watching," said Wayne Pacelle, a senior vice president of The HSUS. "Adding Sunday hunting would jeopardize the lives of thousands more wild animals each year and would disrupt the peace and activities of others enjoying the great outdoors," he said.

"Lisa Bond knows it can be awkward to ask new acquaintances about guns. "It's difficult to say, 'Hi. I'm Nicole's mom. Do you have a gun?'" said Bond, president of the Washington State PTA and mother of a 15-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter. "But it's something we have to talk about."

"Bond says it's important for parents to get to know the families whose homes their children are visiting and to ask whether there are guns in those homes."
 

Schumer: There is a right to bear arms, but not in New York
Submitted by: Sean Flynn

Talking out of both sides of his mouth, Sen. Schumer proclaims support for an individual right, slams Ashcroft for supporting that right, and says (effectively) New Yorkers are morally inferior to Arizonans, so they need tighter gun laws.

"The broad principle that there is an individual right to bear arms is shared by many Americans, including myself." ...and then... "Not to put too fine a point on it, but if New York City had Arizona's gun laws, Times Square would look like the OK Corral."

Ashcroft right on gun ownership

"Attorney General John Ashcroft caused gun-control advocates and assorted liberals to go ballistic by his radical assertion that, yes, the Second Amendment does indeed guarantee individuals the right to keep and bear arms."

"That's exactly what most law-abiding, gun-owning Americans have believed all along. Apparently it was news to nanny-state proponents and other pantywaists, even though the Second Amendment was ratified more than 200 years ago on Dec. 15, 1791."

"In 1803, Chief Justice John Marshall declared it the duty of the U.S. Supreme Court to interpret the Constitution. Almost 200 years later, we have an attorney general who wants to unilaterally reinterpret the Second Amendment, contrary to what the Supreme Court has decided." -- Opinion of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"These are unsettling times for German hunting and sports gun manufacturers and dealers. Wolfgang Fuchs of the National Association of Gunsmiths and Arms Dealers in Marburg fears that the tougher gun laws planned in the wake of the Erfurt school killings could mean the end for some of the 1,200 registered dealers."

"Many already complain about falling revenues. Tougher laws can only make customers that much more uncertain -- and dissuade them from buying," Mr. Fuchs says."

"Anti-gun activists are apoplectic, claiming that the Bush administration has merely kowtowed to right-wing extremists."

But "Liberal scholars, including law professor Lawrence Tribe and journalist Nat Hentoff, agree that any honest interpretation of the Second Amendment must conclude that individuals have the right to own firearms."

"It was the third time a prominent Bush administration member had taken a similar position. Attorney General John Ashcroft stated the same viewpoint in a letter to the NRA last year. Then in November Ashcroft wrote to federal prosecutors applauding a pro-gun decision in Emerson v. United States."

"We, too, would like to cheer this development. And we will. Tentatively."

"As amazed as many gun control advocates and liberal legal scholars seem to be, the fact remains that the recent legal brief footnote from U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson recognizing that the Second Amendment protects the right of all individuals to own firearms is less a radical departure from constitutional analysis than a return to the original intent of the Founding Fathers." -- PHIL KENT, president of the Southeastern Legal Foundation

"You would presume that a person who wants to carry a weapon is afraid of crime, and those are relatively low-crime areas (where the percentages are highest)," said Genesee County Clerk Michael J. Carr, whose office administers the gun permit process. "You would think it would be the other way around. It makes you wonder what the driving force might be."

"Sheriff Robert J. Pickell, whose office does background checks on people who apply for gun permits, said he isn't sure, either."

"Safer said that "a growing number of [doctors] are no longer just asking patients if they smoke or drink or diet and exercise, they're asking if there's a gun in the house. Guns, they believe, are hazardous to our health..." While Safer is recounting these alleged facts, the camera shows a bloody emergency room scene that may or may not show gunshot victims. ... Only after allowing the proponents to make an emotion-based case does Safer allow Dr. Wheeler to make his points."
