"On May 5 the Missouri legislature overwhelmingly passed right-to-carry legislation, which will allow honest adults age 23 and older to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm. ...You cannot be denied just because the sheriff doesn't like you for supporting his opponent - or thinks only police should be able to protect themselves, as occurs in states with discriminatory concealed carry, like New York and New Jersey. Gov. Holden has threatened to veto this bill."

Judges rap court on gun-rights case

"Six federal appeals-court judges last week delivered an extraordinary argument for their view that the Second Amendment guarantees individuals the right to own guns."

"The dissenting judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court criticized the circuit's decision not to rehear a California case in which a three-judge panel ruled that the word 'people' in the Second Amendment does not mean individuals."

"The Supreme Court is not likely to review this December case, and the dissenters complained that the views of three judges would become legal precedent, because the six who felt otherwise could not get a majority of the circuit's 25 judges to join their dissent."
 

The gun control debate
Submitted by: P. Jones

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"In the gun control debate, labels are often misleading. Assault weapon bans conjure up images of taking machine guns off America's streets, and the news media has often encouraged this view by showing machine guns in their stories on the ban. Yet, the 1994 federal ban has nothing to do with machine guns, only semi-automatics that fire one bullet per pull of the trigger. The ban arbitrarily outlaws some guns based upon their name or cosmetic features, such as whether the gun could have a bayonet attached."
 

Smoking Guns - The 60 Minutes News Piece

"Every Sunday CBS’ "60 Minutes" fires a hit piece concocted to damage President George W. Bush. Its May 11 smear attack, implying that Mr. Bush and the Republican Party were eager to put firearms into criminal hands, demonstrated journalistic dishonesty as slanted and partisan as that of the self-righteously leftist New York Times."

"The 'hero' of the CBS story was Robert Ricker, who after two decades working as 'a top lawyer for the NRA [National Rifle Association] as well as the chief spokesman for the gun industry,' suddenly in 1999 switched sides."

"As of last Thursday, Congressman Darrell Issa has created a third recall organization in Sacramento called Rescue California. Issa has also contributed $100,000 of his own money to begin the process of putting full-time signature gatherers on the street up and down the state of California for the recall campaign. Congressman Issa is also planning for nearly 2 million pieces of mail, sending petitions directly to registered voters in the coming weeks."

"This, in conjunction with the two ever-growing grassroots efforts of Davis Recall and Recall Gray Davis, could mean that the recall effort will reach the magical number of 1.2 million signatures by Independence Day 2003 – a new independence for California. (Remember – the legal drop dead date for this recall campaign is not until Sept. 2, 2003.)"

"First, our social life: We begin early here, with zero-tolerance rules in our schools.

"Gun-rights advocates, however, dismissed the bill as another example of legislation that would have little impact on criminals and instead punish law-abiding gun owners."

"The measure would require rifle and shotgun owners to show a detailed license when purchasing ammo. While Sanders said it would cut down on criminals with guns, his political director, Mik Moore, acknowledged that its impact remains largely unknown since few stores in New York City's five boroughs stock ammunition."

"The bill also wouldn't preclude gun owners from making their purchases outside the city."

" 'Lott claimed that the 10 states that enacted shall-issue laws between 1985 and 1991 experienced declines in murder and other violent crimes relative to the crime trends observed in other states that did not pass shall-issue laws,' Donohue wrote in a press release promoting the book. 'In contrast, Donohue contends that the 13 states that enacted shall-issue laws after 1992 experienced relative increases in crime.' [Emphases added.]"

"But Lott never argued that all crime was reduced by passage of concealed carry laws, only violent crime."

" 'That's the finding that people have seen all along,' Lott told CNSNews.com. 'You have some people who were engaging in robbery in order to get money previously and, when people are able to carry concealed handguns to protect themselves, you have some criminals [who] stop committing crimes, but some switch into other crimes.'

"Background: The British Home Office reports that between 1996 and 2000 at least 66 householders were killed by burglars. Recent statistics are not available. Most of the victims were elderly."

"Result: Martin, the victim of an attempted burglary, is arrested and charged with premeditated murder. The presiding judge orders the jury to find Martin guilty of murder, no extenuating circumstances. British law does not permit lethal force in defense of one's person or property, says the judge. Martin is sentenced to life in prison. Case is appealed. Higher court reduces crime to manslaughter and the sentence to five years. Martin is sent to prison where he remains." ...

"Burglar Fearon, 32, whom Victim Martin wounded during the break-in, is suing the farmer for 50,000 pounds ($80,000). Fearon has received $12,000, according to the National Post, in legal aid to sue the imprisoned Martin. Plus he has also been granted the right to appear at Martin's parole hearing and offer his views on whether the farmer ought to be granted parole."

"Martin is being denied parole because he is unrepentant and refuses to declare that in case of another burglary he wouldn't defend himself with a shotgun." ...

The jury in a suit filed by the N.A.A.C.P against the gun industry was deadlocked yesterday in its third day of deliberations, it told a judge in federal court in Brooklyn. Jurors said they were at an impasse over whether the industry's marketing and distribution practices were specifically harmful to the N.A.A.C.P.'s members. The judge will make the final ruling, but the jury was empanelled to advise the judge in the suit, which claims that the industry could do much more to keep guns from being sold to criminals. The suit seeks a court order for more stringent monitoring of gun dealers by manufacturers and distributors. The judge, Jack B. Weinstein, sent the jury back to deliberate.

Authorities arrested a convicted murderer at Nashville International Airport yesterday after security screeners say he tried to carry a loaded gun on an airplane.

John Morris Anderson is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, and carrying a weapon or explosive on an aircraft.

FBI agents say they're still investigating what Anderson's motives were for bringing the weapon.

A federal complaint says Anderson was caught as he was passing through security on his way to board a Southwest Airlines flight to Tacoma, Washington. A security screener spotted the firearm in his bag as it passed through an X-ray machine.

Anderson is being held pending a detention hearing later this week.

He was convicted in Davidson County of first-degree murder in 1966, and received a 20-year sentence.

"The extremely controversial 'personalized gun' or 'childproof handgun law' signed into law by New Jersey Governor James E. McGreevey on December 23, 2002, mandates that all handguns sold in New Jersey must be 'personalized firearms' three years after the state attorney general determines that a particular model of handgun can be so classified. 'Personalized gun' is now the technically correct term to identify what was formerly referred to as a 'smart gun,' advises Donald Sebastian, Ph. D., of the New Jersey Institute of Technology. The change in terms involves a proprietary legal consideration. Dr. Sebastian is vice president for research and development at NJIT where the research effort for this new 'nanotechnology' is being conducted."

The St. Cloud City Council agrees that local officials should be able to determine whether handguns are allowed on city property.

The council voted unanimously yesterday to support an effort at the Legislature to repeal a portion of the state's new handgun law.

The conceal and carry law means sheriffs will have to grant handgun permits to almost all adults who aren't disqualified for criminal, mental health or safety reasons. The law forbids local governments from prohibiting handguns in places where the state law does not ban them — like city parks, libraries and city hall.

St. Cloud Mayor John Ellenbecker says city officials fear that accidents or arguments could lead to gun violence in public places.

Third letter on page

FULL TEXT BELOW


Last Friday after a pleasant lunch I was able to get my entertainment on Lake Street: a shootout. It was just like the cowboy movies of my youth. I had a perfect view: A young man running down the middle of the street fired three shots into a passing car. I was crouched in a doorway 10 feet away hoping I did not interest him. Had I owned and carried my own gun I could have shot at any of the bystanders who were as frozen with fear as I was.

So a vote of thanks to the National Rifle Association, the Legislature and Gov. Tim Pawlenty for passing the concealed-weapons bill. Starting May 28 I should have ample opportunities, with the proliferation of handguns, to witness additional shootouts -- perhaps even in my own back yard, which will save me having to leave my own neighborhood.

Or perhaps I will just move back to New York.

Erica Bouza, Minneapolis.

"In the past, business owner Daryl Donath has posted a sign on the door of her store, forbidding shoppers with ice cream from strolling through. This year, she asked her husband to whip up a sign prohibiting guns as well in response to the recently passed law that will allow more Minnesotans to obtain gun permits."

" 'Absolutely No Guns or Ice Cream! Even if you are my Best friend!' reads the fluorescent lime-green sign on the door of her shop. Although Donath chuckles when asked about her sign, she isn't laughing about the new law — saying she's worried about innocent bystanders being shot, and the possibility of more guns in domestic disputes and road rage incidents."

We, with common sense, call this an invitation for criminals to come on in and victimize the unarmed. A reward for ignorance.
