Gunman tries to shoot France's President Chirac
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"A would-be assassin pulled a rifle out of a guitar case and fired at least one shot as French President Jacques Chirac passed Sunday during the annual Bastille Day military parade. The man was arrested and no injuries were reported."

"The man was a right-wing extremist who intended to kill the French president, according to a government minister, Patrick Devedjian. He told The Associated Press that the man fired a shot and then tried to shoot himself."

QUESTION: Why is the media so quick to label anyone who uses force against the government -- or even speaks about the possibility of using force against the government -- as a "right wing extremist"? When some leftist whacko chains himself to a tree or vandalizes a cattle processing plant, why is it that we rarely (ever?) hear the term "left wing extremist"?

NOTE: That this person attempted to end the socialist president at the Bastille Day parade is noteworthy -- the Bastille was stormed by the people as part of a revolution where freedom was the objective. To the French people, this is similar to what it would be like if an American tried to kill President Bush on the 4th of July.

And considering the large number of people who were adamant about getting rid of Chirac in the recent elections, it's safe to say there are a few Frenchmen who wish this attacker had been a better shot.

"AUSTRALIAN police ministers are set to crack down on interstate firearms trafficking."

"Probity [honesty, integrity] tests for employees and business associates of firearms dealers are likely to be part of the national code on trafficking."

"Victorian Police Minister Andre Haermeyer said the code also aimed to better track the movement of firearms and parts throughout Australia."

"What we are trying to do is put controls on guns that are legally imported and how they are onsold," he said.
 

SC: More on Senator Hollings' desire to keep pilots defenseless and hijackable

"Sen. Fritz Hollings, D-S.C., has a reputation for sticking to his guns...the 80-year-old senator and past South Carolina governor is not afraid to stand alone in support of — or in opposition to — high-profile legislation."

"In the next few weeks, some senators, gun activists and airline officials are betting that Hollings won’t ease up on his stance against the latest anti-terrorism bill, which is gaining momentum on Capitol Hill."

"Hollings is one of the key opponents of Senate legislation that would give all airline pilots the right to carry firearms in airplane cockpits."

"The bill has moved to the Senate, where Hollings, the chairman of the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, has not put it on the committee’s agenda for discussion. A similar bill to arm pilots, sponsored by Sen. Robert Smith, R-N.H., also has been referred to Hollings’ committee."

"Hubert Norris can’t keep a gun in his house as a private citizen. He can’t carry a gun hunting. He can’t go target shooting."

"But if Norris is elected Fayette County’s sheriff, he can strap on a pistol to carry out his elected duties."

"The situation is this: He could not personally possess a firearm," said Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of Tennessee and Alabama for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. "But in his official capacity as sheriff, he’s exempt from the law."

"Norris became the Democratic nominee for sheriff June 25 in a landslide victory over opponent Loyd Fowler. He served as Fayette County sheriff from 1974 to 1989, when he was forced out of office after pleading guilty to federal racketeering charges stemming from accepting bribes from bootleggers. He spent 30 months in a federal prison."

KABA NOTE: He did his time and repaid society. He wasn't convicted of a violent felony. His rights should already be restored -- automatically.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL -- "Authorities in crime-ridden Rio de Janeiro on Friday appealed for international help in tracing and preventing the flow of firearms."

"At a United Nations-organized ceremony in Brazil in which a steamroller mashed 10,000 confiscated weapons, Rio de Janeiro state Gov. Benedita da Silva asked representatives from 14 countries known as major arms producers to collaborate."

The state's security secretary, Roberto Aguiar, called for concrete international action: "We have to unite or this problem becomes a real cancer of the world."

"About a quarter of the firearms seized by police in Rio are foreign-made. They come mainly from the United States, then from Spain and Belgium. The rest are homemade."

"RUTHLESS brutality towards fellow countrymen, highly-developed terror tactics and murder which seems to go beyond the act of killing."

"That is how one police officer has characterised Vietnamese crime gangs."

"A paper presented to a conference of police commissioners last October has a tragic resonance with the events of Monday. It outlines the brutality with which some Vietnamese criminals torture other Vietnamese."

"Outspoken Open Family Australia youth worker Les Twentyman said he had been warning for a decade that gangs and knives were a problem."

"It's about time we stop this waffling and, sadly because what's happened, it's put it back on the agenda," he said. "We are fast-tracking to LA-style stuff."

How do you feel knowing that the government lets scum like this back out into society to attack our sisters and daughters again?

"The 'Red Rodeo Rapist' accused of assaulting girls in three states has been sentenced to 45 to 90 years in prison for three charges in Wyoming."

"John Puffenbarger, 54, of Aurora, Colo., was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded no contest June 24 to five counts of kidnapping, sexual assault and taking indecent liberties with a minor."

"Laramie County District Judge Edward Grant ordered Puffenbarger to serve the Wyoming sentence after he finishes serving 40 years in Colorado for assaulting a 13-year-old girl in 1996."

"In 1981 Puffenbarger was sentenced to five to 15 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old in Sarpy County, Neb., but was committed to a maximum security psychiatric hospital and then paroled in 1988."

"A 13-year-old boy was shot in the head Sunday at a Gwinnett County gun show."

"Stephen King was taken to Scottish Rite Children's Hospital in Atlanta, where he underwent surgery and was listed Sunday evening in very critical condition. Police said he and his father, Anthony Grant, were attending the gun show from Montgomery, Ala."

"The shooting happened at about noon at the Eastman Gun Show at the North Atlanta Trade Center. It was unclear how the shooting happened or whose gun, a .38 caliber revolver, was involved."

"All we know for sure is it was an accidental discharge of a handgun," Gwinnett County police spokesman Ray Dunlap said.

"Dunlap said police are considering the possibility of charges, but he would not say what specific charges or against whom. Officials said loaded guns are not allowed at gun shows, except for those carried by police officers or security guards."

CA: Police say "abundance of guns" is "reason" for increased homicide rate

The city of Oakland, California held a rally against violence on Saturday. Allegedly, thousands of people showed up -- somehow thinking that drug-financed gangs will interrupt turf wars to listen to such pleas.

"Fifty-five people have been killed in Oakland so far this year, compared with 40 by this time last year. This includes two killings in the past week. Another man was nearly killed when he was critically wounded Saturday with a gunshot wound in the head about 3:15 a.m. in the 3100 block of Cuthbert Avenue."

"Police said the reasons behind the increase are complex and include drug disputes, a tanking economy and an abundance of guns."

IN THAT CASE... The abundance of cars is responsible for the criminal acts committed while driving. The abundance of women is responsible for the rise in prostitution. And the abundance of police officers is responsible for the increase in reports of police brutality. That settles it: ban cars, women and police, and everybody will start loving their neighbors.

N.Y. Times Tries to Manipulate Public Opinion on Arming Pilots

"Once again the New York Times is using its news pages to manipulate public opinion – this time using a story about arming pilots in a blatantly obvious attempt to turn Americans against letting pilots have the right to carry guns against hijackers."

"In a Page One story, the citadel of 'mainstream' media once again proved just how biased it can be, especially in pursuit of the liberal agenda."

"The 'news' story was entitled "Armed Pilots? Many Travelers Are Gun-Shy." Reading the Times story, one would be led to believe that most Americans oppose pilots being armed."

"The Times never mentioned in the extensive article – one filled with shrill, anecdotal worries of fellow liberals – that several scientific polls taken since Sept. 11 show that an overwhelming number of Americans want pilots to be armed."

A shameful attempt by our government to cover their own A$$.

"On June 20, Bush Administration officials quietly informed a New York judge of their intention to commence legal actions likely to be far-reaching in their constitutional, political, and individual rights implications pertaining to current lawsuits and government secrecy related to the attacks on September 11, 2001. The moves were revealed in a letter obtained from a confidential source, with two other sources corroborating its existence, adding additional information."
 

Defacto Registration for Private-Party Gun Sales: WHY THE McCAIN-LIEBERMAN BILL IS BAD LEGISLATION

Crossroads of the West Gun Shows

"The McCain-Lieberman bill is a direct attack on the lawful gun owners of the United States. Senate Bill 890 is the bill which purports to be "reasonable legislation" to control individual collectors and gun owners who may want to buy, sell or trade a firearm at a gun show. The real motivation behind the bill is to restrict and regulate gun shows in a step-by-step procedure which will quickly lead to California-type laws and regulations. In California, every gun transfer must be processed by a licensed dealer and the government must approve any gun buyer. Even neighbors of thirty years or more may not buy or sell a gun to each other without government approval. What this and all other legislation on the state and national level to regulate activities at gun shows is about is restricting lawful Americans access to firearms."

"The community needs to have trust in the police and not feel that there is a loose cannon out there."

"Since 1979, county police have investigated 34 incidents in which officers shot or otherwise injured suspects. In the vast majority of cases, the officers' actions were found to be justified, Korczyk said."

QUESTION: What about the cases where the officers' actions were not justified? How many of those officers were criminally charged and prosecuted to the full extent a citizen can expect?

"The Justice Department reports that police kill about 400 people each year in incidents determined to be justifiable homicides. The department does not keep statistics on killings in which police are found to have used excessive force."

WHY NOT?

"From 1991 to 2000, 644 police officers were killed in the line of duty and more than 600,000 were assaulted, according to the Justice Department. About a third of those killed were trying to make an arrest."

QUESTION: And of that number, how many were trying to arrest someone who allegedly violated a "law" that goes against the Constitution? In other words, how many of them were in actuality cases of citizens defending themselves and their liberties against armed public servants who'll enforce any law handed down?

"The Bush Administration aims to recruit millions of United States citizens as domestic informants in a program likely to alarm civil liberties groups."

"The Terrorism Information and Prevention System, or TIPS, means the US will have a higher percentage of citizen informants than the former East Germany through the infamous Stasi secret police. The program would use a minimum of 4 per cent of Americans to report 'suspicious activity'."

"Civil liberties groups have already warned that, with the passage earlier this year of the Patriot Act, there is potential for abusive, large-scale investigations of US citizens."

"As with the Patriot Act, TIPS is being pursued as part of the so-called war against terrorism. It is a Department of Justice project."

Watch those capital "N"s.

"When the Israeli army went into the West Bank last spring to smash what Prime Minister Ariel Sharon called 'the infrastructure of terrorism,' the Bush administration and most Americans saw the offensive as a legitimate act of self-defense. But elsewhere, Sharon's government was roundly vilified."

"Angry rallies took place across Europe. The European Parliament urged member states to impose economic sanctions against the Jewish state. A United Nations official called the Jenin incursion 'morally repugnant'."

"That quarrel betrays a deep divide between the U.S. and much of the international community, including some of our most valued allies in Europe. It's now on display over the International Criminal Court--which evokes enthusiastic support on the other side of the Atlantic but great skepticism in the Bush administration. Its resistance has generated a torrent of criticism, but the U.S. government would be irresponsible to subject itself to an unaccountable court that may become a vehicle for anti-American sentiment."

"Dr. Mark Trach spent years working in emergency rooms, where victims of violence arrive daily."

"Perhaps that's what led him to buy what some say is the perfect self-defense gun: a 9 mm Beretta small enough to fit in a waistband and able to fire all 14 bullets in six seconds or less."

"What happened after Trach's loaded Beretta was stolen from the glove box of his Nissan Pathfinder outside Florida Hospital Orlando in March 1998 is a tale of how quickly a gun can pass through the black market."
