BAD NEWS: "Sen. McCain, who is the group's poster boy, is threatening to offer his bill (S.890) as an amendment to any one of a number of bills. S.890 would ban private sales at gun shows unless the gun buyer submits to a registration background check." KABA NOTE: Which, of course, according to federal "law," they cannot do -- you must have an FFL to access NICS. Contact U.S. Officials

GOOD NEWS: "Bush Administration Stands For Individual Gun Rights -- Sort Of"

"It started because businessman Ernest Hancock wanted a convenient place to park his pistol while he paid his sales taxes at the Department of Revenue."

"Hancock, the owner of a Phoenix restaurant called Pizza Belly and a well-known Libertarian, asked the department to check his gun on site, rather than nearly a third of a mile away with the Capitol Police. He was refused."

"Rendell favors additional controls on handgun purchases. Casey believes that the laws on the books are sufficient."

"THE RECENT Keystone Poll showing Ed Rendell up by 10 points in the governor's race included an odd finding: Gun people like Ed. He led rival Bob Casey among gun owners and voters strongly opposed to new gun laws."

"What that tells us is that voters aren't terribly familiar with the candidates' views," said pollster Terry Madonna.

"That's about to change. The anticipated assault on Rendell by Pennsylvania's gun lobby has begun with hard-hitting radio ads, with TV attacks soon to follow."

"Federal and local law enforcement agencies yesterday announced a team effort to crack down on gun violence in the state."

"The goal of 'Project Safe Neighborhoods' is to prosecute people who use a gun in the commission of a crime, as well as felons who possess a weapon, U.S. Attorney Ed Kubo said.

CA: 'Free' (with an hour class) gun locks being 'ignored'
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"The department began offering the gun locks six months ago. ... Only a handful of 4,000 devices have been taken."

"As part of the program, those who sign up are asked to attend a one-hour gun safety class that includes proper use of the lock, but no one has signed up. The only locks given out so far have been at public events."

KABA NOTE: An HOUR to learn how to work a gun lock? Apparently, Tulare citizens aren't as stupid as their police department thinks they are.

"Brownlee was released on $3,000 bond and ordered not to return to the school unless authorized by school officials. He faces up to 5 years in prison if he is convicted."

KABA NOTE: ...proving that "school safety" has nothing to do with "safety" and everything to do with banning guns.

"Some customers will resist the fingerprint system because of privacy issues, said Griffith, who noted that there are grocery shoppers "who don't even want loyalty cards, because they gather information about you." But they are a relatively small percentage of consumers, she said.

"Most people are very interested in convenience," said Griffith."
 

Citizen's right to bear arms undeniable

"American citizens have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms, a Southern Baptist public policy expert affirmed May 13. Richard Land said it was a 1939 Supreme Court decision centered on the government's right to ban sawed-off shotguns that institutionalized the faulty view that the Second Amendment pertained only to the states' right to organize a militia. The Clinton administration and others made the argument that the nation's founding fathers intended for the right to keep and bear arms to refer only to a state militia or National Guard before them, he explained."

--I guess a child being murdered by a knife-and-stun-gun-bearing criminal, does not rate high enough for extended news coverage. I further suppose that it would have been more news worthy if the child was murdered by a criminal using a gun.

Needless to say, the media bias is exposed again; it's not about crime, it's about political agendas. I have not yet heard any calls from the whackos for knife and stun-gun controls.

Hypocrites!

R.I.P little Andy!

"Hundreds of boxes of bullets are missing from a law enforcement firing range in eastern Oklahoma County. About 43,000 rounds apparently have been stolen."

"Investigators say it's a large enough amount to cause concern, particularly when authorities don't have any clues about the missing ammo's whereabouts a month after the theft."

"The bullets were stolen from a van parked at the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Department firing range between April 5 and April 9."

--Another example of EPA insanity.

"Let me begin with Dave Barry's frequent disclaimer that "I am not making this up." It's really happening out there on the left coast, and it's really bizarre and scary when you think about it – a sign of our demented times."

"Gothard has laid down this demand: if elected, he won’t go to Washington unless the local government makes an exception to gun laws and allows him to run around town with a 9mm submachine gun and a "backup" pistol tucked under his coat. Well, wouldn’t you know it. Those hardheaded cops in Washington informed him they’d make no exceptions."

"Legislative committees advanced twin bills Tuesday repealing a provision in state law that shields gunmakers from lawsuits over their marketing of firearms."

James Madison boasted about the "advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation." Alexander Hamilton wrote that "Little more can reasonably be aimed at, with respect to the people at large, than to have them properly armed and equipped."

"What is so surprising about Dry Creek Elementary School Principal Darci Mickle's recent mistake -- she grilled several boys on whether their parents had guns in the home -- is what happened afterward: ... its top official for elementary schools, Mary Terch ... continued to defend the principal's actions."

"An estimated half of all Colorado families own guns. Schools have no business interrogating the kids whose families do as if they had something to be ashamed of." -- Opinion of Rocky Mountain News

"Often our morning coffee is accompanied by a breathless report in newspapers or on radio or TV: "A new study shows that…"

"Usually the "study" claims to reveal a new danger in the environment or a new threat of some other type."

--David C. Stolinsky goes on to cite various gun control "studies."

The lead-in: "Here's a good lesson on the danger of guns."

The story: People are making false reports. ("Philadelphia police say they have charged or will charge seven people who shot themselves ... while handling guns and then made up elaborate cover stories.")

What does one have to do with the other?

KABA NOTE: Why, nothing Jeff, except that the reason for these "false reports" is another excuse to justify pushing gun control. -- Did they do a study of the false reports by people who had equally stupid car accidents? Are those people now going to be arrested?

"We commend Attorney General John Ashcroft and the Justice Department for officially altering the government's view of the Second Amendment, recognizing an individual's right to possess a firearm.
The largely symbolic legal brief, filed last week with the U.S. Supreme Court in connection with two cases it is considering for review, is attracting plenty of criticism from gun- control advocates and as such shows no shortage of courage." -- Opinion of The Oklahoman
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The whole of the Bill of Rights is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals. It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of. — Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789.
