MA: We can make Boston safe again...
Submitted by: Doug Charette

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

 
"FIVE YEARS AGO, Boston's streets were famously safe. Today, they are once again out of control. What happened, and how do we fix it?"

"Some history. Boston's homicide rate peaked in the awful year of 1990, fell in 1991, went back up in 1992, and stayed high until the summer of 1996. It then plummeted, light-switch style; by the beginning of 1997, it was a new world on the streets."

KABA NOTE: No need to wonder where this one is headed -- the author of this editorial has made a name for himself in the world of gun control. Included on his resumé are design and implementation of "Operation Ceasfire" and direction of the "Boston Gun Project".

2 + 2 = 4.
 

Founder's Legacy: Madison Put Liberty First

"Madison, the 'Father of the Constitution,' also lived in troubled times. Wars were regular events in the 18th Century, and Madison's life was played out against the backdrop of such upheavals as the American and French revolutions and the Napoleonic wars. Indeed, his public life coincided with international conflict that stretched, almost without interruption, from 1776 to 1815."
 

Handcuffing career criminals -- a no-no, says 9th Circuit
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"To borrow from Winston Churchill's gripping cadences over the Battle of Britain, never have so many misfits owed so much to the few on the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The proof rests on Andrade vs. Attorney General of the State of California (Nov. 2, 2001), in which the court brandished the Eighth Amendment's prohibition of 'cruel and unusual' punishments to frustrate California's 'Three Strikes and Your Out Law' as applied to career criminal Leandro Andrade."

KABA NOTE: This thorough report details a case where the 9th Circuit Court said a harsh sentence for a career criminal was too much. The concluding statement may make the whole piece worth a quick read:

"The U.S. Supreme Court is slated to review Judge Paez's daftness in Andrade during October Term 2002. But in the meantime, shouldn't we consider whether a functioning cerebrum should be made a condition of service on the federal bench?"
 

South Africa: 'Top cops sold gun licences to gangsters'
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"Three senior police officers have been arrested for allegedly running a gun licence 'shop' at Philippi police station in Cape Town where anyone with cash - including gangsters and convicted criminals - has been able to buy permits to own firearms."

"Corrupt officers were reportedly paid to ignore factors which would have disqualified dubious applicants from becoming gun owners."

"Police blew the whistle on their colleagues."

CONSIDER: If a sworn officer of the law will help a gangster get a gun -- possibly endangering future citizens on the wrong end of the barrel -- but will also arrest otherwise lawful people for mere possession of a banned gun, would such an officer do worse things for money that endanger decent people's lives? If so, how far away is a revolt?

"If cops continue to play at being an army of occupation, they should expect the subjects to play their role in return. Vive la resistance." -- J.D. TUCCILLE
 

The Wichita Massacre - The crime-and motive-the media ignored.

"In September 9, Reginald Carr and his brother Jonathan go on trial for what has become known as the Wichita Massacre. The two black men are accused of a week-long crime spree that culminated in the quadruple homicide of four young whites in a snowy soccer field in Wichita, Kansas. In all, the
Carr brothers robbed, raped or murdered seven people. They face 58 counts each, ranging from first-degree murder, rape, and robbery to animal cruelty. Prosecutors will seek the death penalty."

"...she was on her hands and knees and one of the Carr brothers was unzipping his pants, he laid a silver automatic pistol on the floor two feet away from her. She thought about making a grab for it but realized she had no idea how to operate a gun, and instead submitted to rape and attempted murder. Had she known how to use a weapon, her four friends might be alive today."

"Let’s face it: if you have to ask permission to do something you are not free. And yet, Americans don’t seem to be particularly bothered by having to ask for state-sanctioned permission to do every little thing. They gladly hand over their personal information to have their papers in order so that they can drive from place to place, using the excuse that it is for everyone’s own good."

"Wanda Butler has received her late grandfather's shotgun after town police gave her the runaround for about 13 years."

"Butler received a telephone call at about 10:30 a.m. Monday from the town clerk telling her to pick up the gun. That call came the same day a story about her struggle to recover the family heirloom appeared in The Town Talk."

"Butler states in the article that she had run out of patience and wanted arrest warrants issued for the Boyce mayor, police chief and town council if the gun was not returned by Monday."

"Within the last two months, six Kentucky state certified firearm instructors were indicted for 'mail fraud' by the U.S. Department Of Justice, and two more individuals who are not Kentucky instructors, were also charged."

"Another person who was questioned in Kentucky was found dead with an apparent gun shot to the head."

"Lewis E. Wesley was questioned by state and federal investigators regarding certificates he issued. Soon after he met with the investigators, his body was found in Frankfort, Kentucky. The medical examiner issued a statement that he died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. All the indictments stem from allegations that the individuals issued training certificates without conducting the mandatory training."

"As part of the country's war against terrorism, the Bush administration by next month wants to recruit a million letter carriers, utility workers and others whose jobs allow them access to private homes into a contingent of organized government informants."

"The Terrorism Information and Prevention System (Operation TIPS), a national reporting pilot program, is scheduled to start next month in 10 cities, with 1 million informants — or nearly 4 percent of Americans"

"The program has already alarmed several civil liberties groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union and the Rutherford Institute, which say the administration should not allow TIPS to become 'an end run around the Constitution.' "

KABA NOTE: Though the ACLU's policy of lying and denying when it comes to the Second Amendment is widely known by liberty advocates, their concerns on this issue are warranted.

Canada: Stun gun use gets green light

"Ontario's police forces are getting stun guns, the province's public-safety minister announced Monday."

"Bob Runciman said tests of the Taser guns over the last year by officers in Ottawa and Toronto have demonstrated the weapon is effective."

BUT WHAT ABOUT... The only true way to determine the effectiveness of a weapon not designed for debilitation through penetration and thorough tissue disruption is to actually use it for its intended purpose on live specimens. To assure that these officers are safe in their duties, we'd like to offer all of the people who run the national registration scheme at the Canadian Firearms Center as test subjects. Videos of the experiment would sell for a hundred bucks in Alberta, and with the hundreds of millions of dollars squandered on their failing and unpopular pre-confiscation law, it appears they could use the money.

"Despite overwhelming votes in the House and Senate to protect U.S. service members from the kangaroo-court tactics of the International Criminal Court, there are serious efforts under way to ignore the will of the American people on this issue."

"NewsMax.com has learned that in the face of the 75-19 Senate vote and 280-138 approval in the House, there is a quiet but concerted effort on Capitol Hill to undermine the measure that would write into law the refusal of the Bush administration to cooperate with the court in any way."

"THE Howard Government plans to use its constitutional powers to override state and territory gun laws in an effort to wipe out the illegal firearms trade."

"Six years after Prime Minister John Howard responded to the Port Arthur massacre with tougher gun laws, the Government will today use the debate over illegal hand guns to push for nationally consistent laws and penalties."

KABA NOTE: Like the anti-gun liberty thieves in America, these socialist misfits are going after the firearms of decent gunowners through crafty use of their "trade and commerce clause" in what passes for a Constitution -- the BATF approach, as it's known in America.

"In the suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, Herring is asking for damages against the county for violations of his constitutional rights, false imprisonment, negligence, defamation and slander, and intentional infliction of emotional distress."

Follow-up on yesterday's story. Sheriff says they may press charges yet.

"Who did it?"

"Who accidentally shot 13-year-old Steven Bray King in the face Sunday at a Gwinnett County gun show? And how did it happen?"

"A day after the incident, a boy who loved to read and tinker with computer parts has died, and police don't know what happened."

"A Gwinnett police spokesman said only two groups of people were allowed to carry loaded weapons at the Eastman Gun Show -- vendors and the security working the event at the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross."

"But the gunshow promoter's attorney said vendors can't carry loaded weapons during any of the 32 shows put on by Matthew Eastman of Fitzgerald."

"Amid the contentions, police are trying to piece together a sequence of events to explain the shooting."

"Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy announced Tuesday that gun control laws would be strengthened and the sale of arms more strictly controlled after an assassination attempt on the French president by a young man with known connections to neo-Nazis groups."

KABA QUESTION: If Mr. Socialist President's attacker (known as Mr. Badshot) had used a steak knife to go after the bodyguarded politician, would they be calling for tougher kitchen cutlery laws? Or if he'd tried to ruin a perfectly good bumper by running him down with an SUV, would they be strictly limiting access to those?

CAMPO SECO -- "A popular shooting range that some neighbors want closed would remain open under a draft Bureau of Land Management plan, but gun enthusiasts wanting to use the range would need to tote their weapons nearly a half-mile before they could open fire." (A tough requirement for physically disabled shooters.--TA)

"That's among the changes proposed for the bureau's 172-acre Campo Seco parcel, which has turned into a battleground pitting gun enthusiasts who have used the land for generations against neighbors who say irresponsible shooters are turning their back yards into shooting galleries."

"The bureau also said it would increase patrols and cite violators for creating a hazard and a nuisance -- violations that could bring fines of up to $100,000 and up to a year in prison."

"French police have arrested four people and seized a vast arsenal of weapons and explosives suspected to belong to the Basque separatist organisation ETA."

"The haul, including machine guns, rocket launchers, pistols, ammunition and explosives, was stashed in a disused lighter factory near the town of Dax in the southwestern Landes region."

"ETA has killed more than 800 people since 1968 in its bid to carve out an independent Basque state from northern Spain and southwestern France."

KABA NOTE: On the same day when French leaders are warning that they'll be tightening restrictions on mere .22 rifles to further restrict possession, it's interesting to see that such weaponry can be had on the streets.

"Muskegon Police have added to their arsenal a nonlethal weapon option that can pelt dangerous suspects and unruly crowds with irritating pepper-spray balls."

"Though it operates and looks similar to a paint-ball gun, the Jaycor PepperBall semi-automatic device certainly isn't recreational, police say. The gun fires small, round balls filled with disabling hot-pepper spray."

However, [Muskegon Police Sgt. Charles] Flynn said the pepper-ball guns "do not take the place of an officer's firearm." [emphasis ours]

QUESTION: Is this the same Sgt. Flynn who suggests women use pepper spray to ward off determined rapists? Or was that another police officer down the street whose wife carries a firearm?

"It was the latest incident in a nationwide wage strike, marred by violence and vandalism, which began two weeks ago."

"Acting municipal manager Wilson Nkuna drew a pistol and shot three workers, one fatally, when scuffles broke out in Louis Trichardt as he tried to persuade a crowd of about 100 to return to their posts, municipal labour spokesperson Jerry Manyama said."

"The manager produced a firearm and shot one dead and wounded two others. The workers attacked the manager and beat him with sticks, shoes and everything. He is also in hospital," a spokesperson for the Limpopo province police said.

One day's crime report in a San Diego paper that never has space to cover it all -- San Diego, where you've got to have friends in high places to be "granted" a "permit" to protect yourself from thugs like the ones in these news stories:

• Carjacker robs man of vehicle
• Victim of drive-by shooting hit 3 times
• Woman woken up, startles burglar
• Shotgun pellets hurt boys shooting dice
Use a firearm to defend yourself on the streets from the perpetrators of these crimes and the very same police who took the reports will escort you to jail.

But the weather is nice.

"The Uniform Fire Code of 1997, which is the Code that the State Fire Marshal uses, limits primers to 25,000 in a building. We have never allowed primers to be sold inside the buildings at the gun show. However, Phil Mele' decided, in his wisdom, that since each cartridge has a primer, he would limit the amount of ammunition in the building to 25,000 rounds. Such a low limit on ammunition would have made it impossible to have a gun show."

"Opponents of allowing pilots to be armed have portrayed horror movie visions of pilots and terrorists shooting it out in the aisles of airliners.

"It's a lousy time to be a wild pig on Washington's Olympic Peninsula."

"Worst of all, state wildlife officials have declared open season on you, hoping to eradicate wild pigs before they attract a fan club. Hunters are free to kill all the pigs they can, with virtually any weapon, any time, no license required."

"We want to get rid of them. We don't want them to become a permanent population that we have to deal with all the time," said Jack Smith, a regional wildlife program manager for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Unregulated hunting, Smith said, "might be the best way to keep their numbers low."

"The Bush administration's broad new proposal for domestic security, to be made public today, calls for sweeping changes that include the creation of a top-secret plan to protect the nation's vital infrastructure and a review of the law that could allow the military to operate more aggressively in the United States."

"Dozens of the recommendations are familiar initiatives ... Many fall outside the scope of the proposed new department of homeland security."
