Police responded to a domestic dispute and seized 19 guns. They later discovered that the owner had four DWI convictions [over a 20 year period], and refused to return them. The court ruled that the gun owner was a "habitual drunkard", and disqualified from gun ownership.

"I don't go drinking with a gun. I use them for sport," said [Thomas] Whitney, 43, who works in construction. He said he is a National Rifle Association member and an avid hunter. "All my guns are locked up, and no one has the keys but me."

"A teenager will spend two years in detention for a prolonged and inhumane sex attack on a 30-year-old sufferer of cerebral palsy."

"The 17-year-old male pleaded guilty in Brisbane's District Court to four counts of attempted rape, two counts of rape and one count of torture."

"The court heard he forced the woman to crawl around a house 'like a dog', held a knife to her throat, burned her on the upper thighs with cigarettes and sexually assaulted her during a five-day ordeal last year."

"Crown prosecutor Sal Vasta had argued the teen be placed on five years' probation for rape and three years' for torture, giving him no time in a youth detention centre."

KABA NOTE: With the Australian ban on possession of handguns for self-defense and "Crown prosecutors" who want to put such wretches back on the street immediately, shouldn't local citizens be a tad upset?

"Actor Steven Berkoff has been forced to leave the United States for violating visa regulations - in 1997."

"The British thespian was in the US to speak at a festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan."

"But he was sent back to the UK on Tuesday after having been stopped by US Immigration and Naturalization Service agents at Detroit Metropolitan airport."

"Unbelievable as this may seem to humans who are half-civilised, this trivial infringement was enough in the post-September 11 hysteria to give this lowly clerk with a gun holster the right to play God," said Berkoff.

KABA NOTE: Doesn't INS have bigger problems to deal with at America's borders than aging actors? (Hint: Mexican border, where hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens enter every single year.)

"The University of Utah has picked up a powerful ally in its battle to keep concealed handguns off its campus: LDS Church-owned Brigham Young University."

"BYU President Merrill Bateman signed an affidavit, filed Thursday in federal court, in support of the U.'s gun position. With claimed membership of 70 percent of Utah residents, and close to 90 percent of the state's elected leaders, church backing of a campus gun ban could help shift the political dynamics of the fight."

The Supreme Court issued an outrageous ruling on the death penalty, but it did not inspire much outrage. It was greeted with equanimity because the policy the Court imposed was within the bounds of reasonableness. The Court ruled that the mentally retarded could not be executed. What should cause opposition, and resistance, is not the policy that the Court imposed but the fact that it imposed it — without constitutional warrant — at all.

"Today, the House Aviation Subcommittee passed a revision to the originally proposed legislation which in essence is a sham. The provisions in this bill amount to nothing more than another cosmetic security measure. When this passes, our elected officials will be able to say they created a meaningful program for arming pilots."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's. — Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp
