"Believers in the Second Amendment aren't necessarily believers in a second term for Bush." ...

"Second Amendment fundamentalists, not so affectionately referred to as 'gun nuts,' are fed up with Bush. Sam Cohen, director of a New Hampshire NRA affiliate, asked Karl Rove 'whether President Bush was aware that many thousands of gun-rights activists around the country felt so strongly about this that we had drawn a line in the sand (my exact words), and would not support any politician – even President Bush himself – who supported this atrocious legislation.' Angel Shamaya, executive director of KeepAndBearArms.com, a proud member of the Anybody But Bush crowd is equally disenchanted 'Gun owners who know the issues know that Bush is all talk...he's turned out to be a phony in so many ways, I'm embarrassed I voted for him in 2000.'" ...

... "One thing is for sure, the more soldiers returning from active duty who elect to become legally armed citizens, the better the wisdom of our Founding Fathers is seen because; even though the Second Amendment is dead in every state except Alaska and Vermont, a 'standing militia' sure sounds like these returning veterans who as legally armed civilians, might be able to thwart the efforts of any terrorist attempting to use small arms as their means of terror!"

You may not have heard of the American Community Survey, but you will. The national census, which historically is taken every ten years, has expanded to quench the federal bureaucracy’s ever-growing thirst to govern every aspect of American life. The new survey, unlike the traditional census, is taken each and every year at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars. And it’s not brief. It contains 24 pages of intrusive questions concerning matters that simply are none of the government’s business, including your job, your income, your physical and emotional heath, your family status, your dwelling, and your intimate personal habits." ...

"Keep in mind the survey is not voluntary, nor is the Census Bureau asking politely. Americans are legally obligated to answer, and can be fined up to $1,000 per question if they refuse!" ...

"The latest 'Conservative Index' that has just been published by The New American, (a biweekly publication of The John Birch Society), is an eye-opener for those who think that the Republicans in Congress are 'conservative.' The index once again refutes the myth, based on the voting records of Republicans in Congress, that the Republican Party is the party of 'conservatism.'" ...

"Some of the House congressional votes that are counted in this particular index relate to extended unemployment benefits (H.R. 3030), child nutrition programs (H.R. 3873), transportation (H.R. 3550), abortion at military facilities (H.R. 4200), and job training (H.R. 444). Some of the Senate congressional votes relate to gun show background checks (S. 1805), transportation (S. 1072), assault weapons (S. 1805), extended unemployment benefits (S. 1637), and extending the Internet tax moratorium (S. 150)." ...

"We have long since made clear that a state of war is not a blank check for the president when it comes to the rights of the Nation's citizens." – Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, writing for the Supreme Court in Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, June 28 ...

"On June 28, ruling on American citizen Yaser Hamdi, held without charges for two years, incommunicado, in a navy brig in South Carolina as 'an enemy combatant' – put away solely by the president – the Supreme Court vigorously instructed George W. Bush:"

"'We reaffirm today the fundamental nature of a citizen's right to be free from involuntary confinement by his own government without due process of law.'"

"No president, said the Court, is above the Constitution, and while George W. Bush is commander in chief of the armed forces, he is not commander in chief of the rest of us."

"Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Tuesday ``it's looking more and more likely' that the nationwide ban on assault weapons, which she pushed into law in 1994, will expire in September as Republicans in Congress continue to prevent a vote on its renewal."

"Feinstein and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., released a letter to President Bush by former Presidents Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, both Democrats, and Gerald Ford, a Republican, warning that 'it would be a grave mistake' if the assault-weapon ban were allowed to expire. The law has a provision allowing it to expire after 10 years if Congress does not reauthorize it." ...

KABA Note: Without the sunset clause the ban would not have passed. At the time they were saying "We'll see if it works and only renew it if it does." It hasn't worked, and is an egregious infringement on the rights of law-abiding citizens: Let it die!

"In a strongly worded decision chastising the state Legislature, a Ramsey County judge Tuesday nullified Minnesota's contentious new handgun permit law."

"Traverse County Sheriff Don Montonye said he resisted the 2003 law, which made it easier for citizens to carry firearms, because it stripped sheriffs and police chiefs of some discretion to deny applicants. But after adapting to the new law, he'd prefer to stick with it, he said."

"'It's kind of frustrating,' said Montonye, whose county has the highest number of gun-carrying permits per capita in Minnesota. 'We put in a good system and things were running smoothly.'" ...

A Bronx man was charged yesterday in the shooting death of his 16-year-old friend, police said.

The suspect, Ronald Womack, 23, of 1330 Webster Ave., was charged with murder in the second degree and weapons possession in the May 26 death of his friend, Carnell Harris.

Police said Womack, who was picked up initially on an unrelated suspended license charge, confessed to the crime and said the gun, a .38 caliber pistol, went off accidentally as he and Harris were playing around with it. The shooting took place inside Harris' E. 180th Street home in Bronx.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

ONE OF the Defence Force's Israeli-made Galil assault rifle has gone missing and several officers who were on duty at the time the weapon disappeared have been confined to barracks.

An investigation is now taking place.

The Express was told by a reliable source that the disappearance occurred sometime on Tuesday when an inventory of their weapons revealed that "all was not well".

The Galil, currently used by the army and some arms of the Police Service, is the Israeli-made answer to the widely popular Russian-made AK-47.

The Galil uses a 5.56 mm bullet and its effective killing range is approximately one mile.

Within recent times, four Galil rifles are believed to have been stolen from the Army and the Express has been told that they are in the possession of a Morvant-based gangster.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The Legislature agreed Wednesday to allow people with concealed handgun permits to purchase a pistol without filling out an additional license application.

The bill, agreed by the House and Senate in separate votes, changes a requirement that also required a separate pistol purchase permit to buy a gun. Gov. Mike Easley must sign the measure before it can become law.

A person who gets a concealed handgun permit already must pass a background check by a local sheriff. The permit is more thorough than the pistol purchase examination, supporters said.

House and Senate negotiators agreed to the Senate version of the measure, minus a provision that would have created a specialized license plate for enthusiasts of the National Rifle Association. A separate bill to create the NRA plate could receive final legislative approval as early as Thursday.
