"Gun control may emerge as a wedge issue in the fall elections, as Congress decides whether to reauthorize the assault weapons ban."

"The 10-year ban expires this September..." ...

"The bill's fate may rest in the hands of powerful lawmakers such as House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land, a vocal gun control opponent who has already suggested House Republicans may let the measure expire." ...

"Gun control advocates suspect that the White House is trying to have it both ways, rhetorically supporting the ban to appease moderates while keeping the GOP base happy by letting the House kill the gun measure."

"IF you go down to the woods today, make sure you are wearing a bright orange safety vest and hope that Shemane Nugent is not hiding behind a bush with a .38 tucked in her belt and a steel-tipped arrow loaded in her hunting bow."

"The blonde huntress, who is the wife of rock star Ted Nugent and mother to son Rocco, stormed into Washington last week to introduce the capital's urban elite to a growing political phenomenon: gals who like guns." ...

"Nugent made it clear that Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, who some right-wingers consider soft on gun owners' rights, was in her sights."

"Someone better tell Kerry that when a mother bear is defending her young she is unstoppable," she said."

"...I can’t help but notice the worried looks and whispers of waiting passengers while helping a ticket agent check in my rifle or muzzleloader at the airport. In one case, my daughters overheard a woman tell her husband, 'You’d think with children in his house he wouldn’t keep guns around.' "


"Amazing. I would have thought she would have been more impressed that my three daughters — then fairly young — had stood in line for 30 minutes without irritating the spit out of everyone within hearing. At some point you would hope those judgmental sorts would look at your family group, consider the evidence before them, and realize gun ownership isn’t an indicator of criminal intent or aberrant behavior."

"An effective gun control program can readily accommodate the legitimate needs of hunting, marksmanship, collection and self-defense. That's not the problem. The problem has to do with the Second Amendment, which was placed in the constitution for two reasons. First, an effective citizens militia was regarded as essential to national defense. Second, it was thought to be more difficult for an unjust government to tyrannize over an armed citizenry than an unarmed one." ...

"As regards the second reason, things are not so simple. We live peaceably under a benign government, and the threat of tyranny is perhaps the last thing the average citizen has on his mind. It can't happen here. Or can it? ..."

"Daschle is up for re-election this year, and so is Dorgan. So, you hunters and gun owners, now know who your friends are. Let's get Daschle and Dorgan out and replace them with folks who respect our Second Amendment rights."

"Jenkins was convicted in April of illegally discharging a firearm, theft and official misconduct. That stemmed from a 2001 incident in which he fired shots at a man, then took a toolbox from him but never entered the toolbox into evidence."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Israel Police, in conjunction with the Interior Ministry, kicked off a firearms-return campaign Sunday. According to the plan, weapons held by the public without proper permits must be returned by the end of the year.

In the first stage of the campaign, letters will be sent to some 32,000 citizens who hold firearms without a valid permit.

At the end of the operation in October, criminal investigations will be launched into the citizens who did not respond to the mailed-in warning.

-------
It's difficult to believe that a country that supposedly realizes the value of an armed citizenry in crime prevention still uses fascist permitting and licensing schemes.

"In an even more public step, she is working with local legislators and actively campaigning for state laws that would require a person named in a restraining order to turn in guns they own."

What she SHOULD be actively campaigning for is for potential victims to get firearms and proper training. People already willing to break the law by assaulting another person will have no trouble obtaining a weapon.

"While I agree that violent felons should be prosecuted, punishing criminals is not enough because gun violence is seldom related to crime. Rather, it results from ready access to lethal weapons during times of anger, despair and conflict. It happens to law-abiding citizens all the time, including those with permits to carry, and rarely in the context of a criminal attack."

"Each year, approximately 330 Minnesotans die from firearm injuries. The vast majority of these deaths (about 75 percent) are the result of suicide. ..."

And if firearms were not available, does this woman really believe that a person intent on committing suicide wouldn't find another way to kill his or herself?

PA: House Bill 2403 Out of Committee

Think about this: You wake up one morning to find that someone you
have dated has gone to court to obtain a "protective order" against
you. In this "secret" proceeding -- in which you have no right to
be present or heard -- the court, after hearing one side of the
story, has ordered (as required by law) that all of your firearms be
confiscated. You have 24 hours to turn in all your guns, and no immediate right to appeal.

Furthermore, it is a crime for you to transfer your guns to a neighbor for safekeeping, AND you are required to reimburse the state for taking your guns away!

If you retain any portion of a gun, it is a crime. And any violation of the order is a crime for which you can be imprisoned without trial.

-------
"In the name of 'political correctness,' this bill would allow ex parte ('star chamber') protective orders to be entered against a defendant by anyone in a 'dating relationship' (sections 6108 (a) (7) (i) (A) and 6102)."

"Defendants would be required to turn in their firearms within 24 hours (section 6108 (a) (7) (i) (A)) -- without any immediate right to appeal -- and to pay for the privilege of having their guns seized."

"A defendant would not have to violate the court's order to be sent away to prison for six months. If he just 'engag[ed] in a pattern of practice that [the court finds] indicates continued risk of harm,' he could be imprisoned for up to six months. And the defendant is explicitly prohibited from receiving a jury trial before being sent to jail (section 6113.1 (b) (3))."

"When Big League Dreams opens, fall of 2005 if all goes well, shooting practice will have to cease at the facility."

This Cleveland Plain Dealer Newspaper editorial writer "detests everything Ohioans for Concealed Carry stands for."

-------
"Even though the state last month began issuing permits for citizens to wear weapons under their clothes, a provision in the new law allows businesses to effectively outlaw guns in their establishments." ...

"Jim Irvine, a spokesman for Ohioans for Concealed Carry, said the Cleveland-based political action committee wants to send a message to those businesses."

" 'We want them to know that they're losing a valuable customer,' he said, adding that people with gun licenses are among the most law-abiding people in the country. 'They're the next best thing to having a law enforcement officer in a store, God forbid something does happen.' " ...

"While I detest everything Ohioans for Concealed Carry stands for, I agree wholeheartedly with its boycott. If those card-carrying, gun-toting folks hadn't told me, I wouldn't have known where to shop to avoid them."

"I feel safer armed with that knowledge. Don't you?"

"The police and anti-gun campaigners, including Bournemouth East MP David Atkinson, have been pressing the Home Office to outlaw imitation weapons."

"Mr Atkinson said: 'This is bad news because the government has avoided dealing with a problem which won't go away. It is irresponsible because there must be a solution.' "

"The police must feel badly let down because they cannot tell the difference between a replica and a real gun."

"Three policemen were shot dead and another wounded during an armed robbery in Troyeville near Jeppestown on Sunday, Johannesburg police reported."

"Sergeant Sanku Tsunke said a 15-member gang entered a business on the corner of Bezuidenhout and Gous Streets, and demanded money while holding the owner at gun point."

"The businessman was then shot in the stomach. The gang started shooting randomly and four policemen, who were inside the Chinese-owned warehouse, were shot."

And yet, the South African government continues its attempts to emulate the British gun control failures, even as armed criminals are killing the very people who are supposed to protect the disarmed populace.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The fate of a bill that lifts limits on gun purchases is in the hands of Governor Mark Sanford.

Current law limits people to buying no more than one gun a month. Doing away with the nearly 30-year-old law could make the state the first in the nation to lift the cap.

The legislation is intended to help gun collectors. It prompted little debate as it passed the House last year or the Senate last week. It is now on the governor's desk.

Sanford spokesman Will Folks would not say whether the governor would sign the act.
Opponents say it could lead to more South Carolina-purchased guns being used in crimes in other states. A federal study shows the law has had little impact on that.

Women learning to shoot both firearms and cameras were in the woods southwest of Wausau Saturday.

The Women's Outdoor Program made a stop in central Wisconsin, teaching women a number of outdoor activities ranging from hunting to fly-fishing to learning the basics of nature photography.

"The environment is just great because they're learning with other women, so there's no intimidation and it's just a comfortable atmosphere," said Karyl Utke, Women's Outdoor Program.

For a $45 fee, the program provided each woman with the necessary equipment and safety instructions.

 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
...If a man lies under oath or procures the lie of another under oath, if he perjures himself or suborns perjury, he is guilty under the statute law. Under the higher law, under the great law of morality and righteousness, he is precisely as guilty if, instead of lying in a court, he lies in a newspaper or on the stump; and in all probability, the evil effects of his conduct are infinitely more widespread and more pernicious. — Teddy Roosevelt - May 12, 1900
