"Violence begets violence? It’s a question many people have often asked, but how do you prove it? A new study may have the answer. The research shows gun violence makes adolescents twice as likely to perpetrate violence within two years."

"U.S. Rep. John Hostettler (R-Ind.) voted Thursday for Judiciary Committee passage of a bill designed to protect gun manufacturers from politically motivated frivolous lawsuits."

"In recent years we've seen frivolous lawsuits brought with the intention of bankrupting law-abiding businesses... The Constitution grants the sole power of regulating interstate commerce to Congress, but this authority is increasingly undermined by the proliferation of lawsuits against the manufacturers and sellers of legal products. In these cases, lawsuits are filed not in the pursuit of justice, but to achieve a political agenda."
 

Laurence Tribe's Big Surprise

"Ordinarily, the announcement by a law professor that he is not completing the second volume of the third edition of his book would not even merit a yawn."

"But when that professor is Harvard Law School's liberal lion Laurence Tribe, the book is his famed treatise 'American Constitutional Law' and he announces his decision in a letter to a Supreme Court justice, legal academics are left gasping in surprise and reaching deep for the appropriate metaphor." ...

"That most recent volume made headlines, surprisingly enough, because in it Tribe embraced a more individual rights view of the Second Amendment than he had before -- a shift that the National Rifle Association and other gun rights advocates seized on as vindication of their longtime assertions."
 

On Target – Gun Owners Against Violence

"There is no group organized as Gun Owners Against Violence. At least no group with that name was found in a web search. There is an obvious reason. At least a reason obvious to gun owners. No such group is needed because all gun owners are against violence. Gun Owners Against Violence would be a redundant nomenclature, like Mammals for Breathing."

"Gun owners are categorically against violence in our communities because that is a natural position for law-abiding civic minded members of our society. Violence involving firearms is particularly repugnant because too often the result is an illogical condemnation of equipment. Some people get mad at guns."

"According to the BBC, a research team from West Middlesex University Hospital published a study calling for a ban on the public availability of long, pointed kitchen knives. The research involved consulting '10 chefs from around the UK.' These chefs felt such knives have little practical value in the kitchen. According to the article, a Home Office spokesman stated that the law prohibits possession of knives with blades greater than three inches long in public places. The spokesman said, 'An individual has to demonstrate that he had good reason to possess a knife, for example for fishing, other sporting purposes or as part of his profession (e.g. a chef) in a public place.' How is that for a touch of irony?"

"Last week, after JoinTogether.org announced that it would soon cease its practice of publishing gun violence news (without explanation), OFCC offered a few tongue-in-cheek guesses as to what the reasons could have been ..." ...

“Over the eight years that we have worked on this issue, gun homicide deaths have declined significantly. Join Together is proud to have been a part of this important work. ...”

"Aside from the humorous claim that this organization, which suffered legislative losses at nearly every turn over the past 8 years, had something to do with the decline in homicide rates, it is striking to note that while they’re proud of their anti-gun work, they’re only willing to keep doing it if they get paid."

Unphased by the deaths caused by its sloppy Korans-in-Toilets reporting, Newsweek continues its Leftist trajectory and digs up old, disproven arguments regarding gun control.

One twist we are seeing, is the disavowal that this gun control organization has any affiliation with the Left ([http://www.pax.com has] 'no interest and take(s) no position on the tendentious question of gun control').

The other pseudo-factoid is that 'gun violence that tragically snatches nearly 2,900 kids .. every year.' Didn't we establish the figure was much, much lower?

The legacy media continues to mis-report the news. This trend continues with Gellman's propaganda here.

"Les Fisher contends in his May 8 letter to the editor that there has been insufficient evidence relating gun ownership to decreases in crime levels (in relation to the issue of 'right-to-carry' laws)."

"Please consider the following facts: According to research presented in the Journal of Law and Economics (September 2001), states that enact right-to-carry laws exhibit reduced felonious police death rates and slightly lower rates of police deaths overall."

"To reinforce what you said, these laws have NO effect on the criminals. I knew people that I could get just about any gun I wanted for $200. No serial numbers, (not just filed off, but tempered out too) and ballistics augmented to create a different ballistics marking on each shot fired."

"That $200 could also get me one block of C-4."

"These boys want ca$h. The law means NOTHING."

Revisiting the Second Amendment (Letter)

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Your editorial board has evidently succumbed to the delusion that our Bill of Rights is actually a "Bill of Needs."

You may not believe that I need a .50 caliber rifle, but that is my decision to make - not yours.

The Second Amendment was written so that every citizen would have the means to resist foreign aggression as well as domestic tyranny. It does not exist merely as a courtesy to sportsmen and hunters.

It's nice that you claim to support the right to bear arms, but when you qualify that support with a caveat about what someone "needs," you've already run afoul of the Constitution.

A Palm Beach County sheriff's deputy used a stun gun to subdue a 16-year-old boy who protested the handcuffing of his father after a suicide attempt.

Sheriff's deputies used a Taser gun on Josh Welch after officers handcuffed his father, Leslie Welch, who had slit his wrists. The father suffers from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

The teen said his dad was waiting for an ambulance, but deputies arrived first and handcuffed the bleeding man. So the teen called 911 again and asked for, "cops who could do their job."

A deputy wrote in a sheriff's report that the boy came at him with a lit cigarette in a threatening manner.

"Sprinkled across this forest east of Richmond on this recent morning are others like Kody — members of a national group of disabled nature lovers called the Wheelin' Sportsmen."

"Since the group was founded in Alabama in 1996, chapters have sprung up in every state and parts of Canada. With its partner, the National Wild Turkey Federation, the group's hunting and fishing trips have attracted everyone from a 7-year-old blind girl who shot her first deer, to a 96-year-old stroke victim who caught her first fish."

"Though hunting is a sport associated with death, the Wheelin' Sportsmen say that for them, hunting is an affirmation that life doesn't stop just because they have a handicap."
