"Since the Virginia Tech shootings in April, gun control has gone from being a dirty word on Capitol Hill (and an election loser for Democrats) to a term that may again be worthy of attention."

"The House today passed what could be the first gun control law to go on the books since 1994. ..."

"While some Republicans and President Bush reaffirmed their unwavering support for the Second Amendment after Seung Hui Cho’s violent rampage ... this legislation was almost unanimously approved in the House. The National Rifle Association was also supportive and said the legislation is not a 'gun control' bill because it doesn't hinder those legally able to buy guns." [emphasis added] ...

"The House Wednesday approved a bill to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill in what is considered the first major federal gun control legislation in over a decade. ..."

"The measure closes a loophole that allowed Virginia Tech shooter Cho Seung-Hui to legally purchase two weapons which he used ..." ...

"Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said 'the chances are very strong' that the bill - backed by the National Rifle Association - will be passed in the Senate as long as amendments are not attached which are opposed by gun rights advocates."

"'When the NRA and I agree on legislation, you know that it's going to get through, become law and do some good,' Schumer said." ...

"The House moved swiftly Wednesday to fix flaws in the national gun background check system that allowed the Virginia Tech shooter to buy guns despite his mental health problems."

"The legislation, passed by voice vote, was endorsed by the National Rifle Association, boosting its chances of becoming the first major gun control law in more than a decade."

"The measure would require states to automate their lists of convicted criminals and the mentally ill who are prohibited under a 1968 law from buying firearms ..." ...

Submitter's Note: Once again, cowards way out with a voice vote so it's not on the record for gun owners to see. Also, The NRA now stands for sell out.

"Leading Democratic presidential candidates probably will leave gun control out of their campaign issues, experts said at a U.S. forum this week."

"Even after the massacre of students and a faculty member at Virginia Tech earlier this year by a deranged student, the worst such mass killing in U.S. history, the issue was seen as distracting from other issues that offered more political traction, Benjamin Wittes, a guest scholar at the Brookings Institution in Washington, said Monday. 'You do not get the best bang for your buck with classical gun control,' he said." ...

"A recent headline on the first page of the New York Times read, 'Bloomberg Cast as Enemy No. 1 of Gun Rights.' I was about to book a flight to the award ceremony to cheer for him, but it turns out there is no such official honor."

"Instead, the declaration was the fancy of only a headline writer. (As someone who lives at headline writers' mercy, I probably shouldn't put 'only' and 'headline writer' together like that.)"

"The burden of the piece was that New York City's mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has become the favored bogeyman of the gun lobbies, their ever-excited members, kept politicians and media echo chambers." ...

"Pro-gun activist David Nelson was ejected from last week's Utah Pride festival by its organisers, security and law-enforcement officers for possessing an unconcealed firearm."

"Nelson ... has filed a complaint with city Police Chief Chris Burbank against Lt. Rusty Isakson ..." ...

"Utah state laws prohibit 'a local authority' [from enforcing] any ordinance, regulation, rule, or policy pertaining to firearms that in any way inhibits or restricts the possession or use of firearms on either public or private property.'"

"Despite this, Isakson wrote a police report about the matter. Nelson said Isakson told him ... that 'one sure way to lose your permit is to abuse it like this.'" ...

Kinshishi Adams, 34, was lying in bed Sunday when a .40 caliber pistol she kept under her pillow discharged and struck her in her left wrist, Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek said."

"One of the biggest complaints that Ohio concealed handgun license (CHL) holders have about Ohio’s CCW law, is the amount of businesses that are WILLINGLY forbidding concealed carry in their establishment by posting the infamous 'No Guns' sign."

"Often the signs are not posted due to disdain for gun owners or a hatred of the Second Amendment. It is often posted due to lack of knowledge of the law, or that the store owner has been misinformed that they are required to post. One example is the Novak J F Company in Cleveland, Ohio."

"I stopped in this store ... last Monday. Upon entering the store, I noticed the 'No Guns' sign posted on the door. Within a few minutes I was talking to one of the clerks about the sign." ...

"This is in response to Regina Demay's guest column ... 'Ban Guns to Stop Senseless Violence.'"

"First of all, I would like to state that I am also appalled at the actions taken by a deranged young man at Virginia Tech. ..."

"Demay's ignorance of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is overwhelming. She doesn't understand the difference between a privilege and a right. A privilege is akin to getting a license to be able to drive a car. A privilege can be taken away. A right was defined in the Declaration of Independence. Our founding fathers declared a right is 'God given,' a right is 'unalienable' and the government could not legitimately deprive us of these rights. They are not to be taken away." ...

"Two years ago I published an alert on my site regarding the inherent insecurity of gun trigger locks in the hope that manufacturers would remove them from the market or modify their design to make them more child-proof. Although some manufacturers now produce a more secure model to meet statutory requirements in California, even some of these can be easily compromised. Essentially nothing has changed: many manufacturers continue to sell products that are poorly designed, the consequences of which can be fatal -- literally. Even the cable locks that are provided under a US Justice Department grant to law enforcement agencies through Project ChildSafe for free dissemination to gun owners are inadequate." ...

"It's been a month since 16-year-old Blair Holt, son of a Chicago Police gang investigator and a Chicago fire captain, was shot and killed riding the bus home from high school."

"Like Bill Cosby's son, Michael Jordan's father, Serena and Venus Williams' sister, and Chicago-area Congressman Bobby Rush's son, family proved no hedge against gun violence for Holt."

"But do the 21 Chicago students killed by guns since September -- two from Blair Holt's school -- mean Chicago's gun ban doesn't work as gun lovers contend?"

"(And since it doesn't work, should we be allowed to buy 18 guns at once to protect ourselves? Including automatic weapons? And weapons from unlicensed dealers to avoiding background checks?)" ...

"He didn't pick up a bow and arrow until he was an adult. He and two friends showed up at a Newburgh archery range just before closing time. He learned how to take aim, which started a lifelong interest in sport shooting."

"Even George Orwell would be shocked. He described the sinister machinations of a totalitarian police state in his novel, 1984, and laid bare the danger of eroding our basic civil liberties, including the right to freedom of speech and the right to privacy."

"Although he famously coined the phrase 'Big Brother is watching you', even Orwell cannot have foreseen just how prescient those words would prove to be."

"Today, in Tony Blair's Britain - which I naively voted into power ten years ago - we have witnessed a breath-taking erosion of civil liberties."

The proposal also would protect people who justifiably kill someone in self defense from civil lawsuits that could require them to pay damages."

Explosives capable of causing "extensive damage" have been stolen from a St.
Charles County firing range used by the sheriff's office and the FBI, federal
officials said Tuesday.

Officials are still trying to determine how much dynamite, C-4 and other
explosives were taken and exactly who was responsible.

Mike Schmitz of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
said investigators believe more than one person was involved in the theft, but
it is too early to know the intent of the thieves, including whether terrorism
could be involved.

The theft, discovered by the FBI on Tuesday, happened sometime in the past 10
days.

The explosives, including C-4, dynamite and safety fuse, were being stored

"Good news is being reported from one of the last lone dissenting states in the U.S. that denies its citizens their right to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense. Only Wisconsin joins Illinois in scoffing at the irrefutable historical data and plain common sense that proves that a law-abiding citizen deserves to be able to exercise their Constitutionally enumerated right to keep and bear arms to protect their life and the lives of their family."

"The White County Board, led by gun rights supporters Mike and Valinda Rowe, has passed a resolution that clearly states how they feel state law is in conflict with their own beliefs. The Rowes have worked with others for some time to fight for concealed carry in their state." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
