Bearing Arms -- a seven-day special report of the Richmond-Times Dispatch:

* Defensive use of guns can prevent crimes, save lives

* When a gunman went berserk in a Southwest Virginia law school and killed three people, he was finally stopped by a fellow student who threatened to shoot him.

* Surveys of defensive gun use come up with numbers that vary widely. Estimates range from about 65,000 to 3.6 million such uses a year, depending on who is conducting the survey.

"When you think of it, Rodney King was lucky that the arresting officers were not women; they were guys trying to do the impossible. They were not "out of control" as has been suggested.

But King was out of control, and, therefore, the situation was out of control. Yet, more than 10 years later there are still no solutions for what to do when a large crazed man refuses to be arrested by the police."

"There was no police shooting, no reverends shouting for justice ... just 300 black people blocking Vine Street ... pelting cars with rocks, bottles and eggs and yelling “get whitey.” Some cities would call that a riot. Cincinnati didn't even call it a “disturbance.”

"Witnesses and police reports showed ... attacks on cars driven by white people, while cars driven by blacks were waved through."

--No "hate crime" arrests? And why were there no armed citizens exercising their right to self-defense?

"On a rather interesting note, when asked what the greatest threats to America are today, Tom Daschle and the Democratic party were seen as more dangerous than Arab terrorists and radical Islam! Perhaps this is an angry but legitimate response to the continuing obstructionism of Daschle and his fellow Dems in the Senate."

"Up to now, Neighborhood Watch has been a fairly low-key crime-prevention tool focused on break-ins and burglaries. But all that is changing, as the Bush Administration has earmarked it for a broader role--surveillance in the service of the "war on terrorism."

"I had witnessed an armed government agent, confiscating legitimate private property without due process."

"I am ashamed to say, that I did absolutely nothing... I had just left 3 days of the Annual NRA Meeting, the theme of which was "I'll Fight For Freedom," but when faced with loss of freedom, I did nothing. Like the rest of the sheep at the airport that morning, I was more concerned with making my flight and my personal convenience. That is a mistake I shall never make again!"

"A Texas jury has rejected the contention of two victims of a shooting rampage 10 years ago that Wal-Mart was liable for selling a semi-automatic handgun to the shooter -- a mentally unstable attorney. The plaintiffs unsuccessfully contended that store personnel should have been trained to ask provoking questions that might have revealed the customer's dangerous paranoia."

"In a candidate profile completed by Libertarian candidate Rick Stanley for the Rocky Mountain News's Web site, he offered this judgment of Allard's first term in office:"

"I believe he should be indicted for treason," Stanley wrote of the Republican incumbent. "Hung, when found guilty. ... Wayne Allard voted for the Patriot Act. That violates the Constitution seven or eight different ways. You could take almost any legislation over the last 100 years and say the same thing."

2ND LETTER ON PAGE

"The state Senate has proposed doubling the tax on concealed weapon permits from $50 to $100. This is unacceptable. ... If any user fees are going to be paid, the people of South Carolina should be paying permit holders for lowering violent crime rates. As it is, the people of South Carolina are reaping the benefit of lower violent crime rates without paying their fair share of the expenses."

"The Senate gave preliminary approval Thursday to a bill that would make sweeping changes to Colorado's criminal forfeiture law."

"One of the changes added language that requires the 50% of forfeited proceeds funneled to local governments be used for "public safety purposes."

"Law enforcement and criminal prosecutors strongly oppose the bill, arguing that forfeiture is an important weapon in shutting down drug dealers, prostitution dens and other criminal organizations."

The court sided against the citizens -- except "Chief Justice Rehnquist dissented, along with Justices Scalia and Thomas."

"The fiercest criminal from whom individual citizens need protection is a government which becomes overbearing. We are free in America today because the colonists fought against King George's tyranny using the guns that the king tried to take from them. ... There is no guarantee that it won't happen again, because a government can do whatever it wants to if the citizens are unarmed."

"GOVERNMENT can make no better use of tax revenues than to adequately fund the criminal-justice system. In recent years we have seen stricter law enforcement lead to diminished rates of violent crime. When we consider the huge financial burden that crime inflicts on society, it becomes clear that expenditures for extra policing and prison construction are very good investments."

--If citizens were able to protect themselves, crime would decrease and so would costs.

Guns in Cockpits – It's Not About Airline Safety, It's About Gun Control

"Are you enjoying the debate in Washington over whether pilots should be allowed to have guns in airline cockpits? If you're paying attention, you need to be aware of one thing. The people who oppose armed pilots aren't focusing on airline safety – they're merely focusing on their anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment agenda."

"It isn't about arming pilots. It's about disarming all private citizens. The anti-gun crowd simply cannot sit back and allow these civilian pilots to arm themselves."

"FORT WORTH, Texas — Help wanted: Sporting goods clerk. No sales experience necessary; will train. Doctorate in psychology or psychiatry required."

"The family of Chris Marshall, one of two attorneys killed in a July 1992 shooting rampage in the Tarrant County Courthouse, and survivor Judge Clyde Ashworth tried to pin civil responsibility on Wal-Mart for not training its sales clerks to recognize the visual and verbal traits of someone who might be mentally unbalanced."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
