"Sadly, modern history is full of instances where the anti-gun left tries to capitalize on tragedy and fear to push their agenda. Sometimes the push is immediate, while at other times they lay in wait gathering strength until an opportune time, like the evil Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter novels."

"Those who support the Bill of Rights need to be aware of these tactics so we can fight to protect our civil liberties when terrible events unfold."

"One such event happened on March 30, 1981." ...

"... On March 30, 1981, President Reagan gave a lunchtime speech ... As he was leaving, he stopped beside the open door of his limousine to wave to the friendly crowd. Suddenly, as the president was waving, gunshots rang out. ..."

"Gun free school zones have proven to be a dangerous delusion that has resulted in people being forced to be victims."

"The only people guaranteed to be safe in gun free zones are criminals. They can count on the law-abiding being disarmed. In reality, gun free zones are nothing more than criminal safe zones."

"Criminals have proven that they not only disrespect laws, they are willing and able to break them. The island nation of Great Britain has banned guns. In 1997 they confiscated virtually all legal guns. Yet today, the police there estimate that England has twice the number of guns in the country -- illegally. The press in Manchester refer to their city as 'Gunchester.'" ...

"When criminals need guns, they have plenty of options in a country with nearly 100,000 licensed gun stores. But drug dealers and other crooks don't shop just anywhere. They have their favorites." ...

"In fact, government figures show that an extremely small number of gun shops account for a spectacularly large number of weapons used in crimes." ...

"But there are signs that scrutiny is on the rise."

"Over the past three years, ATF agents have cracked down on some of the stores most notorious for selling large numbers of weapons used in street crime. In 2005 and 2006, some 220 firearms dealers had their licenses revoked — 20 more than in the previous eight years combined." ...

Submitter's Note: And how many of those revocations were due to actual criminal activity and not paperwork errors?

"Continuing to strike fear into the hearts of, well, everyone, Taser has released an electrified round that works with any 12-gauge shotgun. The Wireless eXtended Range Electronic Projectile, or XREP, is a fin-stabilized, self-contained round with no wires leading back to the gun and a maximum range of 100 ft. Previous Tasers ... are only useful within around 30 ft."

"The XREP punctures the target with multiple probes, and then unspools to dangle from the unfortunate belligerent's body, all the while applying Taser's infamous rapid-fire electrical pulses. As an added bonus, any helpful passerby trying to yank the XREP out of the target before the 20-second discharge cycle is finished will also get zapped ..." ...

"Robert 'Tony' Swick's life was full of fishing trips with his son, Michael; a Sunday night bingo ritual with his mom; and plenty of wet doggy kisses from his beloved mutt, Max."

"That life was cut short when Swick, 41, of Newark, was shot and killed trying to deliver a pizza no one wanted about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday ..."

"Police are calling the killing an attempted robbery, although no money was taken. No one at the home where Swick was delivering had ordered a pizza, they said." ...

"Earl Miller, Swick's brother-in-law for about 12 years, said Swick enjoyed his job at Papa John's Pizza in Heath because it allowed him to meet people." ...

"Texas lawmakers approved a piece of legislation referred to as the 'castle doctrine' earlier this year despite Rep. Borris Miles' vote against it. ... What may be assumed from Miles' nay vote is that he opposes private citizens carrying or employing firearms to defend themselves."

"The Texas Democrat was carrying a firearm of his own on July 8 when he confronted two men cutting and stripping pipes at the construction site of his new home in Houston. When one of the intruders threw a knife at Miles, he drew his pistol and shot the man in the leg. ..." ...

"... Miles said he has the constitutional right to protect his home. Few reasonable people would disagree. We wonder, however, why Miles tried to deny the same right to his fellow citizens through his vote. ..." ...

"Officer Russel Timoshenko clings desperately to life because a group of career criminals got their hands on illegal guns - an easy feat, with all the weapons traffickers import into New York."

"Somewhere out there is the gun shop, or gun shops, that sold the Tec-9 and the two handguns abandoned near the scene after bullets flew at Timoshenko and partner, Officer Herman Yan. ..."

"It is critical to trace how those guns moved from legal channels into the hands of violent felons. And it is perhaps even more critical to determine whether any of the weapons originated with a licensed dealer who is feeding the flow of guns into criminal hands." ...

KABA Note: According to the NY Daily News article, it only took 3 hours for the ATF to trace the guns with the Tiahrt Amendment in place.

"After Aug. 28, the Boone County Sheriff’s Department will no longer be required by state law to issue permits to anyone who wants to purchase a concealable firearm. The change was tucked into legislation that Gov. Matt Blunt signed last week to shield people who use deadly force against intruders from lawsuits or prosecution."

"Under existing law, anyone who wants to buy a concealable firearm must apply for a permit from the county sheriff, who conducts a background check. If the applicant meets statutory requirements, the sheriff issues a permit." ...

"For Sacramento City Councilman Kevin McCarty, it was a series of gun crimes and gun scares in his district that prompted him to try and tighten local gun-control laws." ...

"When a gun from [a straw buyer] turns up connected to a crime, police often can track it back to the middleman. But the problem is that when the gun owner is asked about the piece, he routinely will tell officers, 'Oh, it got stolen a while back.' ..."

"That's why McCarty has introduced an ordinance making it a misdemeanor not to report a stolen or lost firearm within 48 hours of discovering that it’s missing. The hope is that the reporting law will help police investigators get a jump on tracking down stolen guns while helping to discourage straw buyers." ...

"Good for the five members of the Albany Common Council's Public Safety Committee, and good for council member Dominick Calsolaro. Because of their efforts -- tireless efforts on Mr. Calsolaro's part -- Albany may soon have a Gun Violence Task Force to examine the patterns of gun crime in the city. Good, too, for Leonard Morgenbesser, a citizen who has long urged the city to track the use of illegal guns in crimes."

"Next week, it will be up to the full Common Council to step forward and give the Gun Violence Task Force its approval. When that happens, the panel of seven members appointed by the council and six by the mayor can get to work." ...

"You can be in violation in one of three ways:"

"1. Firing a weapon within 500 feet of a home or business."

"2. If you hunt: firing a rifle, pistol or other similar firearm within 500 feet also."

"3. You can not discharge any archery device within 200 feet, except for target practice." ...

"Pam Gautreau ... has 4 children and wants to protect them from potential misfiring from guns."

"And it is meaningless."

"That's because under privacy laws, mental health professionals are not sharing their information with federal law enforcement officials." ...

"To this end, Gov. Joe Manchin said he intends to ask lawmakers to authorize the release of mental health records to the federal government."

"Criminal charges have been filed against a young South Lyon man for what police are categorizing as the accidental death of his friend. This tragedy, officially described as involuntary manslaughter, will forever devastate two families."

"What was missing from the police report was a statement of charges that weren't — and won't be — filed in a court of law: There is no legal responsibility placed upon the owner of a handgun used in a crime." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: What is missing from this 'report' is that the shooter was reportedly 'playing with the gun'. Perhaps the responsibility in this instance lies with those who have demonized guns to the extent that firearms safety is no longer taught in homes and schools.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
