"He's baaack."

"Jack O'Connor, the man who took the .270-caliber rifle to princely esteem, lives on in a new book, 'Jack O'Connor: The Legendary life of America's Greatest Gunwriter,' by Robert Anderson (Safari Press, $35)."

"O'Connor is probably deserving of numerous reputations for everything from being cranky and egotistical to being a family man and the 20th century's best-known firearms expert."

"Durgavahini, the women's wing of Bajrang Dal, completed its 11-day arms training here Sunday. The training camp was organised to impart training to women to operate rifles and other long-range weapons. Inside the premises of "Saraswati Shishu Mandir", around 250 young girls were trained in Judo, rifle-shooting and many other self-defence techniques."

"Started on June 19, the camp aimed at training more than five thousand females in the 12-35 age group from across the country. The purpose was to make women competent in self-defence tactics so that they could face any ordeal with ease."

"Until late last year, David Fowler Jr. was just another Confederate-flag-loving, deer-trophy-displaying, junk-rusting-in-the-yard redneck (his term, spoken endearingly)."

"Despite the trappings, he wasn't deep into Southern history, though. Fowler's attitude toward the significance of his own tract of land on the north side of town: 'Wasn't interested, didn't care.' "

"Then the Georgia Department of Transportation notified him that it planned to condemn a wooded portion of his property to widen nearby U.S. 27 and alter the railroad trestle that crosses it."

"At that point, Fowler became a born-again preservationist and Civil War historian."

"For years we have complained that the Monroe Police Department has little respect for the rights of the poor, especially poor minorities."

"For years we have detailed the accounts of police brutality, abuse of force, harassment, insults, intimidation and a variety of other improper actions that have been leveled at Monroe's poorest residents."

"Much of that criticism has been shrugged off by politicians who either don't believe the reported actions are true or they don't care enough to make it a major priority."

"When do police officers need a search warrant to enter a home? That’s a question that is plaguing Southside residents who are complaining that increasingly Monroe Police Officers are coming to their homes, demanding entry saying they do not need search warrants."

"The latest incident happened last week when Monroe Police Officers came to the home of Pamela McCall, 3911 Gayton Street and entered her home with guns drawn, without a warrant and against her wishes."

"The officers, according to McCall said they had information that a man they were looking for came into her home. She said officers burst into her home without knocking, grabbed her 18 year old son and began frisking him as other officers roamed through her house with guns drawn in a defensive position."

"Two firearms given to El Dorado County Sheriff Hal Barker are the cause of close scrutiny by the Grand Jury after a complaint that the guns were supposed to be used for a raffle and were not given as a gift, according to the final report released by the Grand Jury Friday."

"The complainant...told the Grand Jury that he had given the two guns, a Weatherby rifle and a single-barrel shotgun, to Barker to be raffled in order to buy protective vests for the K-9 dog units."

"Gov. Tony Knowles vetoed a bill Thursday that would have helped a gun manufacturer in a product liability case. Knowles said the bill was designed to inappropriately affect the outcome of the case."

"The bill dealt with a lawsuit pending in Superior Court in Kenai."

"In that case an 11-year-old boy was rendered paraplegic when a bullet from a malfunctioning .22-caliber rifle hit him in the head while he was target shooting in 1989 near Nikiski."

"If you fire a gun into the air in Glendale, police will likely be at your door within minutes."

"With Fourth of July celebrations a few days away, Glendale will start using new technology to crack down on random gunfire."

"The West Valley city will be the third in the nation to use the Shot Spotter, a system that immediately pinpoints the location of a gunshot. In a square-mile area in south-central Los Angeles, gunfire went from 1,100 shots on New Year's Eve 1999 to four shots the next year, officials there say."

"The country music that plays in the background reveals the essence of Guns of the Pioneers Old West Gun Shop owner Rex Macbeth."

"Old West is all I do anymore," the white-haired, thickly mustached owner said somewhat resignedly."

"Macbeth, who grew up seeing guns as one of the safest things on his family's farm, has retired to play cowboy in his gun shop."
 

Australia: Victoria up in arms

"THE number of guns in Victoria has risen for the first time since the Port Arthur massacre."

"Six years after the mass shooting, a Herald Sun investigation has found many Victorian communities are awash with guns, some with more than one firearm for every man, woman and child."

"There are now 556,673 legally registered guns in Victoria -- one for every three households. This is a marginal rise on last year's 553,124 registered guns."

"Victorians now own almost 50,000 legal pistols and revolvers and 6500 semi-automatic rifles and shotguns."

KABA NOTE: If the Red Chinese Army ever decided to march into Victoria, those numbers would seem rather puny.

"MORE than 650 gun licences were cancelled in Victoria last year after the holders committed criminal offences -- a 75 per cent jump in two years."

"And fearful partners, relatives or acquaintances took out intervention orders against more than 400 licensed shooters -- up 80 per cent."

"In all, more than 3300 permits were cancelled last year for reasons including unfitness to hold a licence, failure to pay annual fees, and voluntary surrender of licences."

"[Sporting Shooters Association president] Mr [Sebastian] Ziccone said the laws were too punitive and called on police to be given a greater discretion in applying them, as was the case with speeding fines."

"I could lose my licence for having one (shotgun) cartridge outside of the locked storage simply because I forgot it was in my pocket and left it on the mantelpiece," he said.

"The controversy of school prayer and religion in public institutions is an exercise in common sense and law, not ideology."

"Disregarding our history and prejudices, the above question does not pass the common sense test unless there is some bad element in religion that should cause parents to shield their children from it. Although this may be a hidden agenda of some advocates for separation, it is not the argument used for justifying the prohibitions on religion."

Patriot Revolution? -- Cities From Cambridge to Berkeley Reject Anti-Terror Measure

"Cities across the country have been quietly staging a revolt against the USA Patriot Act, saying it gives law enforcement too much power and threatens civil rights."

"Over the last three months, the Massachusetts cities of Cambridge, Northampton and Amherst and the township of Leverett all passed resolutions that call the USA Patriot Act a threat to the civil rights of the residents of their communities."

KABA NOTE: President Bush signed the so-called "Patriot" Act without even reading it -- nor did most of the congressfools read it, either... a fact they readily admitted. Attorney General John Ashban sought to quiet dissent of the bill during its hearings, too. Good for these communities, and may many more follow.

"Fresh evidence from several mid-term election campaigns is suggesting that candidates who support stronger gun laws are finding the issue to be an effective one in their quests for votes."

"The Violence Policy Center has consistently opposed efforts to shorten the time provided in the Brady Law to complete background checks from the current three business days. Although an overwhelming majority of background checks are completed within minutes, a sale may be delayed for up to three business days when there is a question whether someone is actually prohibited from purchasing a gun."

KABA NOTE: Given the fact that BATF doesnt' even go after convicted murderers who attempt to purchase firearms, perhaps VPC should focus some attention on them.

"The recorded number of small arms around the world rose 16 percent last year, to 639 million, according to a new survey."

"Civilians owned 377 million of those weapons, which included handguns and rifles, according to the study, the Small Arms Survey conducted by the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva."

KABA NOTE: And let our would-be masters remember how many of those firearms are in the hands of American Patriots.

"A New Jersey man died after his rifle barrel exploded while he was target shooting over the weekend at the Easton Rod and Gun Club in Northampton County, authorities said Sunday."

"The accident happened Saturday at the club's Lower Saucon Township firing range at 11:30 a.m., said Lehigh County Coroner Scott Grim."

'He had quite an extensive gun collection,' Graczyk said. 'I believe he worked for a company that manufactures firearms.'

KABA NOTE: Hopefully, a follow-up report will cover the type of rifle, type of ammo and additional details that can be useful to assure that something like this doesn't happen again. If it's true the gentleman worked for a manufacturer, the possibility exists that some creative gunsmithing may have been at play. May the man's family and loved ones recover quickly...

"A YOUNG farmer whose flock of sheep has been attacked by dogs four times in the past five days has appealed to dog owners in Northamptonshire to keep their pets under control."

"Luke Stimson, aged 18, has had a lamb savaged and killed and his flock repeatedly frightened by dogs on the small holding he tends along the canal path at Stoke Bruerne."

"Mr Stimson is currently in the process of obtaining a gun licence [so he can protect his own property, where the government is obviously failing]."

"The Fourth of July is almost upon us. It will be celebrated with fireworks, parades with blaring fire engine sirens, and the usual gaggle of politicians, marching here and there in a frenzied attempt to garner more votes in the fall elections so they can continue to feed at the trough."

"If we are honest with ourselves, we will be forced to admit that we are celebrating something we really know nothing about. The true liberty and freedom the founders sacrificed to purchase for us are things none of us alive today have ever lived under nor experienced."

"Random actions are halted for now amid conflicting state and federal priorities..."

"Brown was one of just four people who balked out of 623 approached for random searches before boarding state ferries last month. But her story exemplifies the furor over searches aboard the vessels regarded by many as simply a floating part of the road system."

"We were looking forward to ice cream on the boat," Brown said. "But I had to draw a line someplace. Do you search people getting on a bus?"

"They didn't say this is just a mom with her two kids coming back from the zoo," Brown said, recalling the troopers' brief report to the ferry captain. "I was just stunned that the captain wanted to know absolutely nothing about me, just the fact that I'd refused the search."

"Last month, NRA members made a difference, as their phone calls to the State House helped ensure reform bill H.B. 1087 passed out of the Public Safety Committee. While the bill fails to make all of the changes needed to make Massachusetts state gun laws just, it is an important first step. But there is still work to be done! H.B. 1087 is now known as H.B. 5102 , and has been in the House Ways and Means Committee for several weeks, and shows no signs of moving."

PA: BATF failed to charge convicted murderer for gun-buy attempt -- killer strikes again

"The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is investigating its handling of a case involving a convicted felon who killed his pregnant stepdaughter and wounded another person before killing himself early Sunday morning, an agency spokeswoman said Monday."

"South Abington Township Police Chief Robert Gerrity said his department on May 30 asked the ATF to arrest Charles D. Schuler after he tried to purchase a gun, but the charges were never filed."

KABA NOTE: Asking the BATF to investigate itself is like asking Hitlery Clinton to investigate herself -- it's a joke. Where are the federal charges against the "Special" Agents responsible for this life-ending dereliction of duty? And why is it that someone convicted of second degree murder only served five (5) years in prison!

WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) - "Two people hiking in Glacier National Park were attacked and injured Saturday when they surprised a grizzly bear along a backcountry trail, park officials said."

NEW YORK — "He's an all-American movie star, but Tom Cruise said his children will be making All the Right Moves — by moving out of America."

"(Cruise) said his adopted children Isabella, 9, and Connor, 7, will grow up outside the United States. They will probably be raised in Australia, his ex-wife Nicole Kidman's homeland."

(REMEMBER, TOM, NO ARMED BODYGUARDS ALLOWED THERE! Oh, and take your anti-rights, gun-hypocrite fan Rosie O'Donnell with you.)
 

"Guns a factor in older white male suicide-study," say anti-gun "researchers"
Submitted by: Blacksnake

"Access to guns and a lack of social support make older white American men seven times more likely to kill themselves than black women of the same age, researchers said on Monday."

"Scientists said people over 65 account for 19 percent of all suicides, although they make up only 13 percent of the population. A team of psychiatrists and geriatrics experts from across the country set out to find out why."

"Researchers have not completely explained why people over 65 commit suicide more often than younger adults, but found a range of factors, including access to handguns..."

KABA NOTE: Perhaps these geniuses would care to venture a guess as to why Japan's suicide rate is higher than America's even though access to firearms is strictly prohibited. Perhaps they'd also care to PROVE a causal relationship between guns and the desire to off yourself, too. If guns cause people to commit suicide, shouldn't America's suicide rate be radically higher than all other industrialized nations combined?

Be sure to visit our Guns & Suicide archives for ammo to use against deceitful "researchers" like these folks.

"Checkpoint screeners at 32 of the nation's largest airports failed to detect fake weapons -- guns, dynamite or bombs -- in almost a quarter of undercover tests by the Transportation Security Administration last month, documents obtained by USA TODAY show."

"The tests, the first since the security agency began overseeing checkpoint screening in February, were done by agents who were instructed to do little to try to conceal the items as they passed through screening checkpoints, memos about the tests show."

KABA NOTE: But have no fear of flying -- if your plane is overtaken by terrorists, the Bush administration will order your plane destroyed in flight by an F-16, but won't let a pilot carry a handgun to stop such terrorists.

By the way, Bush's refusal to arm pilots has absolutely, unequivocally assured that KeepAndBearArms.com will not support his re-election bid, period.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.— Benjamin Franklin Historical Review of Pennsylvania. [Note: This sentence was often quoted in the Revolutionary period. It occurs even so early as November, 1755, in an answer by the Assembly of Pennsylvania to the Governor, and forms the motto of Franklin's "Historical Review," 1759, appearing also in the body of the work. — Frothingham: Rise of the Republic of the United States, p. 413. ]
