"The federal government has quietly been privatizing its gun registry and has already spent more than $17.5 million on contracts, says the Alliance's firearms critic.

Under an Access to Information request, Garry Breitkreuz obtained documents showing the government awarded a $4.8-million contract to BDP Business Data Services Limited in July 2000.

That contract has since grown to $17.6 million."

"In the end, many law-abiding citizens will end up in jail for merely being gun owners or acting in self-defense. A spouse, maneuvering for the upper hand in a divorce proceeding, can place a gun owner in violation of gun laws merely by obtaining a restraining order. Prosecutors already bring first-degree murder charges against occupants who shoot threatening intruders in self-defense."

"Now that terrorism has finally come to the United States, most analysts believe it's a shoo-in more attacks are being planned and will eventually be carried out. That's scary stuff, but reality often can be frightening.

Nevertheless, Americans are a robust people and when threatened are pretty scary themselves. Just ask the now-retreating al-Qaida and Taliban forces running from our special operations troops in Afghanistan and beyond."

"New Jersey, with its outrageously high taxes, its left-wing media, and a state government and congressional delegation constantly advancing the disarmament of law-abiding citizens, offers a notable example as to why people still need the "force insurance" provided by the Second Amendment."

"Hunters and fishermen have a long history of being the major source of funding for maintaining America's healthy fish and wildlife. Through fundraisers, donations and special excise taxes paid on tackle, gear and ammunition, they have contributed billions of dollars over the years.

But all too often sportsmen receive little recognition as major spenders in our economy."

"Police estimate that New Zealanders could own nearly one million firearms, including 27,500 pistols.

However, the actual number owned is not known because gun users only have to register automatic weapons, military-style semi-automatics and hand-guns.

Police licencing and vetting manager Inspector Joe Green said about 27,500 pistols, 6800 military-style semi-automatic firearms and 3300 restricted weapons – a category that includes machineguns – were registered with police."

"The McCain-Lieberman gun show bill is marketed as "gun safety," but it's not, Consumer Federation of America (CFA) stated today. A coalition of more than 70 domestic violence, public health, consumer groups and others oppose the bill, which is full of NRA-inspired provisions from last Congress. The first advertisement placed by the coalition reads, "24 Hours is Not Enough Time to Stop a Batterer From Getting a Gun," and calls for members of Congress to oppose the McCain-Lieberman bill. "
