Gary North: Gun Control and Genocide
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Sunday, April 24th marked the 90th anniversary of the first genocide of the twentieth century: the Turkish government’s slaughter of over a million unarmed Armenians. The key word is 'unarmed.'"

"The Turks got away with it under the cover of wartime. They suffered no greater postwar reprisals for this act of genocide than if they had not conducted mass murder of a peaceful people."

"Other governments soon took note of this fact. It seemed like such a convenient international precedent."

"Seventy-nine years after that genocide began, Hotel Rwanda opened for business." ...
 

Raymond Kraft: The Fundamental Right of Self Defense: The 28th Amendment
Submitted by: News Admin

"The states, as I see it, do not have the Constitutional authority or jurisdiction to determine the meaning of the Constitution, or to amend it, yet every state law that attempts to infringe the Constitutional right of the people to keep and bear arms is an attempt to define, interpret, construe, limit, and amend the Second Amendment."

"The essential issue here - whether the Second Amendment means what it plainly says, that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, or whether the right of the people is subject to infringement by the States in the name of 'gun control,' needs to be settled, finally, and clearly, and I think the best way to settle it is to adopt the 28th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which should be known as The Self Defense Amendment."

"The thought of Mother's Day conjures up all kinds of images depending on who you are, or rather, who your mom is. She may have a busy social life or may prefer to spend her time with a close circle of loved ones. She may be a working professional, stay-at-home mom, or retired. She might be old, young, or both. One thing is certain, moms are irreplaceable as the giver of life, nurturer, and President of their child's fan club."

"Moms make numerous sacrifices in order to enrich their children's lives often without the child ever having knowledge of those sacrifices. They pay attention to everything we do and never lose the instinct to protect even after their children have grown into adulthood. They demonstrate wisdom and restraint and wrap it up in a sometimes quirky personality that makes her one of a kind."

"One way to show your mom that you care about her safety and self-reliance is by giving her the gift of a firearm and by spending time with her at the range."

"Motor vehicle bureaus would require four types of identification from Americans seeking driver's licenses under a proposed law designed to prod states into verifying the citizenship of applicants."

"Uniform requirements for driver's license applications were among proposals accepted by House and Senate negotiators trying to resolve differences in their versions of a bill to pay for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. They also agreed on changes in asylum laws but remained divided over how much money to spend on border security."

"Both chambers will eventually consider the negotiated bill. The House could take it up later this week, but the Senate won't vote until after it reconvenes May 9."

"Armed vigilantes calling themselves the 'Minutemen' have made headlines recently for their volunteer patrol along Arizona's border in an effort to forcefully curb illegal immigration. In a radio interview two weeks ago, your governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, said of the Minutemen, 'I think they’ve done a terrific job.' I say 'your governor' because I'm from Jersey, and if I have to choose between citizenship in a state led by an inarticulate ex-bodybuilder and one formerly run by a corrupt gay man, I'm going with Scrooge McScrewsguys."

AK: Carrying Gun in Car Considered

"A Senate committee is thinking of adding one more provision to an anti-gun-control bill. The proposed amendment would guarantee in state law that Alaskans have a right to carry and store weapons in their vehicle, even if there is a municipal law against it or their employer prohibits it."

"The legislation, which the House adopted overwhelmingly April 12, would prohibit cities and boroughs from imposing any gun control laws more restrictive than the state. Backers say one set of gun laws statewide would protect Alaskans from running afoul of a local gun law more limiting than state law."

"A Lake Station pawnshop is getting out of the handgun business and out of the city’s lawsuit against local gun dealers and manufacturers."

"Six years after the city filed a civil lawsuit against gun makers and stores that illegally sold handguns, Ameripawn owners have agreed to stop selling pistols, Mayor Scott L. King announced Monday."

"'(Selling handguns) is certainly a different business than it used to be,' said Paul Chael, the Merrillville attorney representing Ameripawn."

"Gun owners turned out in large numbers Monday to condemn a bill in the Legislature that would make it illegal to own, transfer or manufacture so-called assault weapons, as well as .50-caliber rifles and ammunition."

"Opponents attacked the bill as unnecessary during a committee hearing, saying there is no evidence that such semi-automatic weapons have been used to commit a crime in Maine in more than 60 years, so there is no need for 'gun grabbers' to try to outlaw them now."

"One change is the absence of the argument that more guns reduce crime. This argument, the centerpiece of the 2003 campaign, was thoroughly discredited in 2004 by a National Academy of Sciences review of gun research. This year, we heard from the bill sponsor that he had 'never preached this would lessen crime.' Tuck away that copy of 'More Guns, Less Crime,' now."

"In an obvious effort to filibuster and ridicule a concealed carry bill now before the Nebraska Legislature, State Sen. Ernie Chambers has introduced a bizarre amendment that would, among other things, punish violators by having their trigger fingers shot off by a fellow lawmaker. Nebraska is only one of four states that do not allow their citizens the means of self-defense."

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) condemned the veteran Omaha lawmaker for injecting a serious debate with what amounts to 'the ravings of someone who has overdosed on self-aggrandizement.'"

"Mr. Petro has asked Sandusky County Common Pleas Court Judge Harry Sargeant for a summary judgment, arguing that the law should be applied uniformly, rather than being fragmented by multiple, piecemeal regulations from around the state."

"The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office once again is giving away gun locks with the ultimate goal of saving the lives of children."

"Nearly 1,000 kits were received by the county last week from Project ChildSafe, a program that educates gun owners about preventing unsupervised children from handling guns. It is the second phase of the program, which supplied about 1,400 kits that were given away by the Sheriff's Office last year."

"'Children are naturally curious about firearms, and, sadly, they may be tempted to play with guns in the home,' said Sheriff spokesman Ted Denny. 'The safety kits, as part of a national safety effort, are locks that prevent guns from being accidentally fired.'"

"In a tournament partly postponed by the torrential rains of late March and early April, Gary Spear of Harpursville, NY emerged as the 2005 New York State Indoor Pistol champion. Mr. Spear is no stranger to this title, having won it in 2004, and a total of seven times since 1997. Mr. Spear posted a score of 2617 out of a possible 2700 points. Close behind was Chris Sobers of Redhook, NY, who posted a score of 2614 to finish second overall and first in the high Master class. The 2005 championship was also something of a family affair: Frances Spear, the high woman finisher in the match, is Gary Spear's wife."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
