"Is it true that no-one is seriously proposing broad gun bans? Is it true that the slippery slope concern is just a bogeyman? Here are a few relevant quotes on this point. (All of them have been verified by me, Eugene Volokh, Professor of Law, UCLA Law School, with help from our excellent law library.)"
 

The Forgotten Militia Amendment-The Real Collective Right Amendment
Submitted by: Robin Herman

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"As shown above, the facts surrounding the forgotten militia amendment negate any assertion that the purpose of the Second Amendment was to grant the several States the 'collective right' to arm their militias. The failed 'collective right' militia amendment was unrelated to the one that became the Second Amendment and any attempt by organizations like the Brady Campaign to link the two is factually and historically dishonest."

"The proposal, which was beaten back, would have given the C.I.A. and the military the authority to issue administrative subpoenas — known as 'national security letters' — requiring Internet providers, credit card companies, libraries and a range of other organizations to produce materials like phone records, bank transactions and e-mail logs. That authority now rests largely with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the subpoenas do not require court approval."

"The surprise proposal was tucked into a broader intelligence authorization bill now pending before Congress." ...

Appetite for Authoritarianism Spawns an American Gulag

"The camp's children are among 664 detainees from 42 countries. Some were captured in Afghanistan; others were rounded up elsewhere. Many have been held without trial for more than two years."

"The Bush administration has argued that these detainees are not 'people' under the Constitution but, rather, legal nonentities it may hold, release or even execute at its sole discretion. Recent reports indicate that the Justice Department has no intention of trying the vast majority of these prisoners. Rather, estimates on possible tribunal trials rarely exceed two dozen. The administration has simply decided to hold hundreds of people without trial or judicial review at the president's whim. There is a term for that type of prison: gulag."

"Some gun owners have bought into the Project Gestapo trap, banging the 'don't pass new laws, just enforce those we have now.' Much of Project Exile is an attitude about gun laws -- that violating these laws cannot be tolerated in any form. But banging that gong is dangerous, since it empowers bureaucrats to launch a witch hunt for gun owners."

Yet another case of the government serving the elite to take away property from the peasantry. It cites numerous cases where the government has abused eminent domain. They take away our guns, our land and, in some cases, our lives if we chose to defend our liberty rather than go silently into the night.

"The court also ruled unconstitutional new restrictions on election-time political ads by special interest groups and others. It barred the federal government from enforcing them and all other parts of the law it struck down."

A Deadly Flaw In Our System Of Government
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"When our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, they probably didn't envision a time when a judge would be allowed to rule contrary to constitutional provisions, simply by making his own definition of the Constitution's meaning. But this is what judges are doing, right up to and including the Supreme Court. No more can we trust the judiciary to simply tell us whether or not a law conforms to the Constitution. Instead, they are redefining it and making law from the bench. A good example is the Texas judge who ruled, in a case where school and child protection people lined up a bunch of small children and forced them to submit to genital examinations without the permission or even notification of the parents, that 'When you drop your children off at school you give up all right to control what happens to them afterward.' Now, I'm not a constitutional scholar but even I know that cannot possibly be what the Constitution says. This is so obviously an example of a judge ruling according to his own prejudices that it shouldn't even be necessary for me to mention it. I would like for someone to show me where the Constitution allows school 'authorities' to strip and fondle our small children without our permission, and without even telling us."

"Gun Owners of America today denounced Sen. Frank Lautenberg's so-called 'Homeland Security Gun Safety Act.' "

" 'This would be better known as the Purchase Ban and Registration Bill,' said GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt."

"The bill creates a huge loophole that allows federal officials to shut down all firearm sales in the country. Equally horrendous, the bill allows those same officials to register gun owners' names indefinitely."

"Miller admits, 'That's a long ways for a little bullet to travel. But that was big enough and heavy enough, that it's what shattered window.' "

"California Fulbright Fellow Ellen Boneparth found that between 1987 and 1996, 100 people were killed in mass shootings in Australia. But after 1996, when new gun-control laws were enacted ...there has not been one mass killing."

"There have been shootings with multiple victims, but none where four or more were killed."

-------
Of course, nothing shows that the lack of "mass" killings was the result of Australia's gun ban, but this won't stop the anti-freedom crowd from speculating.

Lautenberg Seeks To Exploit War On Terrorism

"One of the most rabid anti-gun U.S. Senators has introduced legislation that would tie firearm transfers to our nation’s terror alert system. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), along with U.S. Senators Jon Corzine (D-N.J.), Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), and Jack Reed (D-R.I.), introduced S. 969 this week, which would suspend many of the gun-owner protection portions of laws that regulate the transfer of firearms as long as the terror alert level is above Code Green, or the lowest level. As you know, America has been above Code Green since the alert system was put in place. Among the laws that would be suspended are those that limit law enforcement to three days for completing background checks on firearm purchasers, as well as the law that requires the destruction of records for anyone whose purchase is not denied." ...
