MN: And another thing (Letter)

The enactment of the enlarged right to carry a concealed gun, in spite of its carefully crafted safeguards against abuse, is a powerful argument for enlarged penalties for such things as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Otherwise, the innocent public can have no assurance that qualified gun-toters will not become dangerous when not in full control of their faculties.

FULL STORY BELOW:

I appreciate the efforts of Joel Rosenberg and Joseph E. Olson to make me feel better about Minnesota's new "conceal-carry" law (Star Tribune, May 5). Their soothing tone would really have helped if I were worried that there would be horrendous shootouts all over the place. Their reassurances would have been so nice if I had been anxious that there would be 50,000 more guns in the surpassingly peaceful streets of Minnesota.

But, dang it, I'm still fretting. Because I figure that with thousands more guns around, just a few, a very few, will get into the wrong hands. They may be found at a friend's house or stolen or borrowed from a pal's purse. And just a few, a very few, will be used to maim and kill someone. Perhaps deliberately. Perhaps accidentally. But that's all it takes. A few more people will be injured or dead because "conceal-carry" is now law.

Well, I guess I should remain calm. Because once (if) the perpetrators are found, they will be locked up for a long time. And what are a few more deaths if that's what it takes to give a lot of fearful people peace of mind?

The original opinion piece is in Spanish. A reader and gun rights supporter felt it was important enough to translate for us so we all understand and know the gun-grabber attitude in other countries.

FULL TRANSLATED TEXT BELOW:

Contribution of Parliamentarians to Practical Disarmament

Rogelio Baon*
Contributor

The proliferation of firearms in civilian society represents an endemic problem for the well-being of the cities and towns of Latin America and the Caribbean. The Central American region in particular has experienced an increase in street violence due to the acquisition, sale and traffic of firearms, ammunition and explosives. The function of parliamentarians is crucial in the improvement and reform of laws that could control illicit traffic in firearms and ammunition. In October 2002 a Permanent Parliamentarian Forum was created in Madrid. It is holding its first meeting now in Panama City. This meeting is an exemplary event, with the purpose that we as parliamentarians can have the opportunity to reform firearms laws and harmonize national legislations.

The Forum is composed of official representatives of six countries of Central America and has the backing of two Countries of Europe by means of the Parliaments of Spain and Sweden. Presently there are efforts underway to increase the number of members of this forum and the meeting in Panama represents a historic event for enlarging its representative base.

We parliamentarians can be the first protagonists of disarmament. As chairman of the Forum, I see a great need for practical disarmament and of encouraging the parliamentarians to have an exemplary attitude and demonstrate their capacity to reform firearms laws.

It is necessary to eradicate violence and strengthen legitimate authority for citizens’ liberty. Moreover, we have to fight against organized crime and terrorism, which use firearms and explosives as instruments of evil. These efforts will lead us to better control of trafficking in illicit firearms. As a result, they will contribute to societies’ being able to live in peace and will strengthen democratic institutions besides stimulating development of peoples.

In the world at present we can be witnesses of the pressing threat represented by all kind of firearms. The armed conflicts occurring in various cities around the world and the images of women and children carrying firearms show us the necessity of how we have to unite in this common cause and try to suppress and reduce numbers of firearms. As important as the offensive against hidden illegal arsenals is, in preventive terms, the objective of designing a culture of peace is a very ambitious commitment of the Forum.

For all these reasons, it is necessary to support practical disarmament initiatives, particularly within the framework of the United Nations, all the more so in these times of reflecting anew on the role of this institution with relation to maintaining regional and global security.

*Chairman of the Commission of Defense of Congress of Deputies of Spain and Chairman of the Permanent Parliamentary Forum on Small and Light Arms.

"When NRA apologists in Congress, such as Rep. Mark Foley, R-West Palm Beach, talk about protecting legal products sold legally, remember that Congress has made it legal to sell guns in dangerous ways with crippled enforcement of the few rules that do exist. ...The result, because of shops like Bull's Eye, is easy access by criminals and terrorists to firearms. When that sniper rifle was pried from Lee Malvo's hands, it had the NRA's fingerprints on it."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

San Antonio Park Police say they've received dozens of complaints about a man riding his bike in the park wearing only a black thong.

The 52-year-old man said he'll keep on pedaling because it's his legal right.

"We all claim to believe in the value of personal liberty, but we don't," Joseph Gottschalk said Monday. "No one person has the right to outrank the law and tell me what to wear."

By law, Gottschalk is allowed to wear the thong as long as it covers the appropriate parts. Park Police Capt. Raymond Castro said, "He's within his civil rights and legal rights to wear his thong."

Gottschalk added: "It doesn't take much clothing to take care of the requirement."

"The latest round involves two different issues. First, Lott's new book brings up once again the charge that Steve Levitt of the University of Chicago, a member of the National Research Council panel on guns, is 'rabidly anti-gun.' There's the primary question of whether that's true, and the secondary question of who said so anonymously and was quoted in an NRO column by David Kopel and Glenn. Second, Lott has removed his name from a paper about to appear in the Stanford Law Review, part of his ongoing dispute with John Donohue and Ian Ayres about Lott's famous 'more guns, less crime' hypothesis, and it is being suggested that by doing so he has in effect conceded that they're right and he's wrong."

"Requiring someone to have a 'legitimate' reason for being in a particular place is anathema to the American understanding of freedom. As the Supreme Court wrote in a ruling that voided Chicago's anti-loitering law a few years ago (which also was aimed at the drug trade): 'Individuals in this country have significant liberty interests in standing on sidewalks and in other places, and in traveling, moving, and associating with others.' " ...

"Conservative, law-and-order types might want to think about how a similar policy might apply to guns. Imagine that, because a small minority of individuals abuse their Second Amendment rights, city officials arrogated to themselves the power to decide who should be able to own a firearm. The individual would have to demonstrate a 'legitimate' reason, and the interpretation of what legitimate meant would be up to individual city authorities or police officers, who would not have to interpret the term consistently."

"The fight to restore Ohioans' right to self-defense with a firearm has been going on longer than many realize. The following is taken from testimony offered by Clayton Cramer to the Ohio Senate, in support of a concealed carry bill, on March 22, 1995, and is something that every Ohioan should consider."

"Summary: The available evidence strongly suggests that racism has been the principal engine driving the development of concealed handgun license laws, until quite recently."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
