"Gun rights activist Angel Shamaya, executive director of the popular Second Amendment group KeepAndBearArms.Com (KABA), endorsed Aaron Russo for the 2004 presidential nomination late last night."

" 'Over the years, Aaron Russo (www.RussforPresident.com) has been a defender of the Second Amendment. He's stood against infringement of our right to keep and bear arms by government on any level, without exception and without compromise. He has done so as a Hollywood insider, where hating firearms ownership for the peasantry is all the rage,' said Shamaya, whose uncompromising defense of Americans' Right to Keep and Bear Arms has made his site more popular than those of the National Rifle Association or Gun Owners of America, according to Alexa.com and Ranking.Com ratings services." ...

"The anti-gun Mother's Day rally being organized by the Million Mom March expects to draw about 5,000 people to the nation's capital, according to a permit from the National Park Service." ...

"The anti-gun marchers won't be alone in Washington when they gather Sunday. The Second Amendment Sisters, which has organized counter-protests in the past, has put together a slate of speakers for its Second Amendment Freedoms for Everyone Rally at Freedom Plaza." ...

The 5,000 Mom March will probably draw 1,000. And CNN's camera crew will choose camera angles that make it look like 50,000 -- then reporters will say it was 500,000. Kinda like their first march.

KABA NOTE TO ALL WOMEN WHO WOULD SUPPORT GUN BANS:

We support your right to be easy to rape, rob and murder. We support your right to be easy prey, a good victim -- a disarmed peasant. We simply ask your support in allowing us to defend ourselves against the rapists who have their ways with you. You give it to them your body, your dignity, even your life; and we'll give them hot lead. Fair enough?

"Jackson Arms has occupied a space in a nondescript office park next to Highway 101 since the early 1990s... The previous owner sold the shop three years ago and left the Bay Area because he felt it politically unfriendly to gun ownership, Remolona said."

"The range is the only one of its kind locally; there are others in Santa Clara County, San Leandro and elsewhere in the Bay Area, Remolona said. It draws a crowd of shooting enthusiasts and people seeking instruction in self- defense. In years past, shooters were mostly 'older white gentlemen in their 50s and 60s,' Remolona said, but now include people of all ethnicities and ages. Said Shaun Briscoe, 27, an ammunitions expert at the store, 'It's like San Francisco itself.' " ...

WINGINA -- "Long bird, duck flush, make-a-break. American skeet, sporting clays, bunker traps. Kayaking, ropes courses, fly-fishing schools."

"Each of these shooting games and outdoor activities were planned as part of the Orion Shotgun Sports Center and Corporate Training Facility. The massive 465-acre expanse of rolling hills and lush forests bordering the James River, purchased as Union Hill Farm but now called Orion Estates, was the perfect spot for the facility, those with Orion Sporting Group LLC say."

"The company, which operated a similar business in nearby Shipman for about two years, bought the Union Hill property for $2.1 million last fall. Then in February, the unexpected: Orion’s proposal to transfer its special-use permit from Shipman to the Wingina site was shot down by the Board of Supervisors."

"Union Hill’s appearance now is a far cry from what those at Orion envisioned." ...

Specifically, you don't want armed customers in your stores there - customers that have undergone thorough state mandated background checks and training."

"Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro asked the Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to stop sheriffs from issuing applications for concealed- handgun permits."

"The Toledo-based Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence filed the suit just a week after the new concealed-handgun law went into effect April 8." ...

"In a legal motion, Petro argued that the lawsuit should have been filed in common pleas court. The coalition's complaint is devoid of any facts to support the allegations and is little more than an effort by the group to strike down the concealed-carry legislation passed by the General Assembly, according to the motion." ...

If the UK gun ban is such a great thing, why are Brits having to "make a stand against gun crime"? After all, banned guns shouldn't be a problem on an island if gun bans work, right?

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The "assault weapon" ban didn't stop the [World Trade Center/Pentagon] terrorists, Brady checks didn't stop them, the high capacity magazine ban didn't. Right to Carry would have. If it had saved only one tower and the people in it, it would have been worth it. GUN CONTROL KILLS. — LTC Stasski, 9/11/01
