MO: Gun permit means new license

"Driver's licenses are no longer just for height, weight, hair color, eye color and birthday.

Under the state's new law legalizing concealed guns, Missourians licensed to conceal and carry must get a new driver's license that will announce a person's concealed-gun permit in bright red type, the Department of Revenue said Monday."

. . . "The ill-named Patriot Act ramrodded through Congress just days after 9-11 is costing the average American precious freedoms and allowing unwarranted expansion of government power. We are paying dearly for not taking a strong stand against this tyranny. We have only to look at the intent the Founding Fathers had in framing the U.S. Constitution to understand how much it is being trashed and circumvented today." . . .
 

UK: Why moves to increase legal firearms restrictions won't reduce gun crime

. . . "It is a fact that the criminal and violent use of firearms, the images of which are all around us in films and on television, are linked in many people's minds with the ownership of guns by sporting shooters."

"It is a misconception. Previous attempts which have been made to curtail the legitimate ownership and use of guns for sport have proven to have no effect on the rise of armed crime."

"A report issued at the same time as the Home Office consultation by the Inspectorate of Constabularies, the police watchdog, states that it is not legally-held guns which are fuelling the rise in gun crime." . . .
 

IL: Gun advocates win, but so does common sense

"Nearly two dozen gun-rights advocates in the viewing gallery of a Cook County courtroom burst into applause Monday afternoon after Judge James Linn found Roderick Pritchett, 26, not guilty of a felony weapons charge that could have sent him to prison for three years."

"But the acquittal was not so much a victory for gun rights as it was a triumph for common sense--the proposition that whatever mistakes Pritchett may or may not have made in storing a semi-automatic pistol in his car, he's not a proper target in the war on gun violence." . . .

"As the Million Mom March pink RV rolls into Richmond to push for re-authorization of the Clinton Gun Ban, the Virginia Shooting Sports Association (VSSA), the state affiliate of the National Rifle Association, urged Congress to let the ban expire as scheduled on September 13th."

"Steve Canale, President of the VSSA said, 'Sadly, Mayor McCollum is following in the footsteps of his predecessor Tim Kaine, bowing at the alter of the Million Mom March and their call for more restrictive gun control.'"

"Canale continued, 'Today the gun ban lobby has traveled to Virginia to renew their call for reauthorization of the Clinton gun ban. Even the gun ban lobby's own Tom Diaz (Violence Policy Center) told NPR on March 11, 2004 that, 'If the existing assault weapons ban expires, I personally do not believe it will make one whit of difference one way or another in terms of our objective, which is reducing death and injury and getting a particularly lethal class of firearms off the streets. So if it doesn't pass, it doesn't pass.'" . . .

"Two veteran Oakbrook Terrace police officers were indicted Tuesday in connection with a shooting and cover-up at a nightclub, which is owned in part by one of the indicted officers."

"Around 1:45 a.m. one day last month at the Ocean's 11 club and restaurant on Roosevelt Road in unincorporated Lombard, an officer's weapon discharged. Now, two officers are charged for their alleged involvement in the cover-up, NBC5's Anna Davlantes reported."

"'I want to make it clear that the alleged conduct of these officers is an aberration,' said DuPage County State's Attorney Joe Birkett."

"At the center of the grand jury investigation is 46-year-old Officer James Scales, a co-owner of the bar, who allegedly held an unruly bar patron at gunpoint in a trash bin, after the man tried to hide there. Reportedly, Scales fired his weapon twice, authorities said." . . .
 

How to Make Teddy Bears More Regulated Than Guns

"Some gun banners are attempting to portray the firearms industry as a wild west environment, where anything goes and no product safety exists. They claim that teddy bears are more regulated than firearms. (1,2)"

"That isn't true, of course. So, to help them out, I am sending this proposal to my fine congressional representatives, so that they can enact teddy bear regulations in line with those pertaining to firearms regulations. Many lawmakers repeatedly tell me how much they care about children. Once this new law is enacted, the gun banners will actually be telling the truth for the first time, as far as I can tell."

"Draft of New Legislation: The Lawful Protection Against Teddy Bears Act"

"Hereafter, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, or BATFE, will be known as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives, and Teddy Bears, or BATFETB."

"All facilities involved in the manufacturing, storage, transportation, and sales of teddy bears or related components must register with the BATFETB and pass an inspection for safe handling and storage. Upon passing inspection, the facility must pay a operator’s license fee of not less the $5,000. This license must be renewed each year at the same fee level." . . .

"Wilkinson shot and killed Hiji Eugene Harrison, 25, during a traffic stop about 1:30 Sunday morning . . . . Sheriff's detectives said Harrison . . . appeared 'overly nervous' after being stopped for speeding."

[FULL TEXT BELOW]

"In just four months, Americans will be able to walk out of a gun store with an AK-47 rifle, an Uzi or other weapon of mass murder under their arm."

"Unless Congress acts -- and Republican leaders show no inclination to do so -- the 10-year-old federal assault gun ban will expire Sept. 13. A word from President Bush would get a renewal before lawmakers, a majority of whom would probably approve it. But the president is silent."

"Police said on Monday they foiled what could have been one of the biggest robberies in British history, when they arrested seven men attempting to snatch nearly 80 million pounds (118 million euros, 142 million dollars) in gold and cash from a warehouse just outside London's main Heathrow airport.

'The gold was 40 million,' a senior London police spokesman told AFP. 'We believe the figure is in the region of 30 to 40 million in cash, so between 70 and 80 million in total.'"

"The police said their officers were lying in wait when the would-be robbers rammed their way into the Swissport cargo warehouse in a van and threatened staff with 'at least one firearm and other weapons including knives and cudgels'." . . .

"One of the best reasons to bolster the federal ban on semiautomatic assault weapons, gun-control advocates say, is right in Inver Grove Heights."

"That's the home of Vulcan Arms Inc., a gun manufacturer that has been in business for fewer than two years and that, according to an antigun group in Washington, D.C., sells a greater variety of 'copycat assault weapons' than any other gunmaker in the country."

"Robert Hesse, a Vulcan co-owner, calls his company's products firearms or battle rifles. He said he doesn't know whether Vulcan offers more kinds than other manufacturers, but said nothing the company sells is prohibited by law."

"'They don't like the type of firearms that Vulcan Arms makes, that's their opinion,' he said. 'The First Amendment to the Constitution says they're entitled to voice their opinion, just like the Second Amendment says we're entitled to make and sell firearms.'" . . .

The centerpiece of its plan: a national education campaign dubbed "Ready, Set, Go!" that encourages passengers to be more careful about what they pack. A surprising number of people still are trying to bring weapons on board. Earlier this year in Las Vegas, gun-show attendees were given goodie bags containing complimentary keychains with real bullets affixed to them, prompting huge backups in security lines.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. --JOHN F. KENNEDY
