Submitted by: Newslinks Director

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"The Bush administration today slapped millions of Americans in the face when it announced that pilots would not be allowed to have guns in the cockpit."

"despite the tremendous support in this country for what is really a very simple idea, the Bush administration has said "no" to arming the pilots, and "yes" to relying on an F-16 fighter jet to shoot down the next commercial plane that gets hijacked by a terrorist."

"Be afraid -- be very afraid. This seems to be the only message sent out of Washington D.C. these days. In spite of all the increased terrorism threats, you can rest easy knowing over 55,000 daily commercial flights can still be turned into deadly weapons -- since the U.S. Transportation Department has decided not to permit commercial airline pilots to carry firearms in the cockpit as a measure to avert hijackings."
 

Memo to Ashcroft: Attorney general doesn't make nation's laws

"An assertion by Attorney General John Ashcroft in a brief filed with the Supreme Court about gun ownership has triggered predictable responses from the National Rifle Association (cheers) and gun-control groups (cries of alarm). Whether either response is justified depends on whether an attorney general with a penchant for pushing executive authority to the limit can persuade the high court and/or Congress to embrace his interpretation of what the Constitution says on the subject." -- The Fresno Bee

"Supporters of a bill that requires stricter background checks at gun shows are touting the measure as a way to combat terrorism. In an ad that appeared Monday in the Capitol Hill publication Roll Call, three mug shots of suspected terrorists appeared with these words beneath: "Terrorists are exploiting the gun show loophole."

"Foreign terrorists --- buying guns here in America," reads the ad, sponsored by the nonprofit Americans for Gun Safety."

"Monday's ad was part of a $1 million campaign for the McCain-Lieberman bill."

"Police Chief Bill Baker's plan to create a gun-free zone in Weirs Beach during Motorcycle Week has so far earned the blessing of city councilors, but most said yesterday they wanted to see proof that the rule could be enforced."

"I honestly have no idea what (the police) anticipate for an enforcement process," said Councilor Paul Bordeau. "We can pass it, the intent may be noble, but the actual enforcement of the law becomes the difficult part."
 

The Right of The People

"The idea of an individual, not collective, right to firearms can be traced back at least to the 18th century. In 1765, England's Sir William Blackstone, a major influence on America's Founding Fathers, described the British right to bear arms as one of "the rights of the subject," i.e., the individual. The British law was the basis for the Constitution's Second Amendment. ... . It was only in the 1930s that the idea began to shift from an individual to a collective right."

"The Bush administration's support of an individual right to bear arms, then, need not be hysterically viewed as a setback to legitimate, "limited" gun control. It threatens only those who would twist the framers' intent so as to ban private gun ownership altogether." -- Savannah Morning News
 

What Is The Difference Between a Pacifist and a Victim?

"One of my greatest personal heroes, Robert A. Heinlein, once stated flatly that a male pacifist was a contradiction in terms. Heinlein was a brilliant writer, one hell of a philosopher, and very seldom wrong."

"He was wrong this time. He should have said that a male victim is a contradiction in terms."

"Heinlein may be forgiven, though. No writer is perfect, and it is a common mistake to confuse the ideologically committed pacifist with the chronic, or professional, victim." -- Kathryn A. Graham

"After a lot consultation and realizing my experience in law enforcement, I will not authorize firearms in the cockpit," Magaw told the Senate Commerce Committee. He did not give any reason for the decision."

"Magaw's announcement angered a group called the 'Committee for the Armed Defense of the Cockpit', which said it expected this to happen. The group said that's why it is moving ahead with its allies in Congress, seeking legislation that will force the Department of Transportation to allow guns in the cockpit."

"McCain states: "A few years ago, Congress passed a law to make sure people undergo a simple background check before buying a gun." Lieberman chimes in, "That's right, John. That law has stopped 700,000 criminals from buying a weapon."

"But that's not true. The 700,000 figure is simply the number of initial denials under the National Instant Check System and its predecessor, the Brady waiting period."

"The US Government uses pretexts to send its armed invaders into the States, pretexts such as illegal firearms (none are unlawful in fact), tax evasion (no tax can be laid directly on the people, including federal and state income tax and property tax on domestic earnings and property gained by right), drug sales and manufacture (neither of which the feds have any constitutional control over except for imports), and suspected terrorism lacking even a shred of evidence."

"I have just run across a quote from a National President of the Fraternal Order of Police dated 1967. In his letter to the NRA, Mr. R. Pat Stark stated: "Those who push gun control are the same ones that hamstring the police. They intend to have a disarmed citizenry, protected by a paralyzed police department." When both come to pass, American Liberty will be at an end."

Attorney General John Ashcroft believes that this is a fundamental right of law-abiding citizens, but argues that the federal law at issue in the case is valid." -- Stephen P.

"The Daily News later retracted the story, saying "a spokeswoman for the Delaware Department of Justice said it misinterpreted the law and that Brady was not obligated to state that the gun was for her son as long as he was legally qualified to own a firearm." So, is the Delaware DOJ bending the law to allow a politically connected celebrity activist off the hook, or is the law so confusing that the DOJ lawyers can’t properly interpret what they expect gun-owning citizens to know and obey?"

"Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is at it again, preaching draconian gun control. He has now paired himself with "the conscience" of the Senate, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., and joined forces with the national anti-gun group Americans for Gun Safety (AGS), a lobbying group that has been shown to have neither members, gun safety programs, nor credibility."

"It's time to rein in the power of state attorneys general. For most of American history they did vital, but routine and distinctly unglamorous, legal work for their states. But beginning in the 1980s, some Democratic attorneys general (AG) challenged the Reagan administration's policies in antitrust and environmental law, pursuing their own agendas through litigation."

Life-threatening legislation euphemistically termed "gun control"

"England’s legislators would rather rely upon arming after-the-fact police, who usually arrive after a robbery, homicide or rape has been committed, for purposes of completing reports to initiate an investigation to track down the perpetrator[s] rather than take measures to protect and prevent such crimes from happening to innocent, law-abiding citizens in the first place."

"the death of 60 small children is an insignificant occurrence, but when more than that low number die by drowning in 5-gallon pails, and many more die from choking on food, then the number of gun accidents is astonishingly small and therefore insignificant."
