"You may have recently received two letters signed by Representatives Michael Castle, Christopher Shays, Mark Kirk and Mike Ferguson, claiming that various disasters will occur after the federal 'assault weapon' ban expires on September 13. To respond generally to the claims, please let me stress several provisions of federal law that these four Members apparently overlooked:

Firearm dealers are prohibited from selling a rifle or shotgun to a person under age 18.

Firearm dealers are prohibited from selling a handgun to anyone under age 21.

It is unlawful to mail or ship any firearm to someone who is not a federal firearm licensee (manufacturer, dealer, etc.).

The Gun Free School Zones Act prohibits possession of a firearm on school grounds.

AK-47s and similar foreign-made firearms are prohibited under firearm importation law and administrative rules, which will not be affected by the expiration of the Clinton gun ban.

Two other guns, among the "19" guns the letters claim will be legal again (both very rare revolving cylinder shotguns) are separately prohibited under the National Firearms Act, which will not be affected by the ban’s expiration.

"Lawyers say the man whose allegations led to the firing of five Campbell County Deputies suffered through two hours of 'torture.'"

"Late Wednesday afternoon, 42-year old Lester Siler stood quietly next to his sisters, wife and 6-year old son, allowing a lawyer to explain his side of what happened at his Campbell County mobile home July 8."

"Sheriff Ron McClellan had told the media that Siler ran out the back door of his home when five deputies came to serve him a warrant for violating probation on an earlier drug charge. But Siler's lawyer tells a different story."

"'When officers arrived, he was standing outside,' lawyer Mike Farley explains. 'He was brought inside, handcuffed, and set down at the kitchen table. He never attempted to flee.'"

"The five officers involved in Siler's arrest were fired Tuesday. ..." ...

"People, we all must understand that we live in the United States of America in which the people are sovereign to all government entities. We as free men and women are not subject to man made rules and regulations, as the exercising of rights cannot be made into a crime, nor can they be legislated. Rights are rights, not privileges granted by officials."

"Their (public employees) excuse for not defending rights and applying bills of attainder to the people are such falsehoods as 'just doing my job,' or 'if I don't do it the way they (presumed to be superiors) say, I will be fired' or 'I have to be able to support my family,' and a host of others." ...

"A Flagstaff grand jury indicted Harold Fish on a charge of second-degree murder Thursday in the shooting death of a Payson man."

"The indictment stated that 'Harold A. Fish, without premeditation, knowing that his conduct would cause death, caused the death of Grant Edward Kuenzli, a class one felony.'"

"The sheriff's office initial determination that the shooting was in self-defense outraged many people in Payson who knew Kuenzli as a gentle and non-violent man."

"Coconino County Attorney Terry Hance said he received more phone calls, letters, and e-mails about the case than any similar case he could remember and said the conclusion of self-defense by sheriff's investigators was 'terribly premature.'"
-------

So the Sheriff's office based their conclusion on the evidence (Kuenzli was shot from a foot away and was charging Payson when shot), and the County Attorney based his on public pressure. This is an outrage!

"A gang of heavily armed thugs got more than they bargained for when they attacked and tried to rob a 'defenceless' Pretoria man."

"Christoffel McMaster, 25, who is representing South Africa in a karate competition to be held in Pretoria at the end of the month, was walking home from church in Arcadia on Monday morning when he was attacked by five youths." ...

"Fighting back, McMaster punched the youth who stabbed him, knocking out two of his front teeth before kicking a second man in the groin."

"Picking up a small plank next to his feet, McMaster 'walloped' his third attacker over the head and across the face when the man continued to assault him." ...

"'I thought that I have to teach them a lesson so that they realise that they cannot simply go and pick on anyone just because they want,' he said, demonstrating a kick he used on one of his attackers." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Many Fort Campbell families were left to fend for themselves after their soldiers were sent overseas.

But some wives have taken matters into their own hands.

Several wives of soldiers from the 160th Task Force decided to get together and take a self-defense class.

They said the three day class taught them to protect themselves, but also helped their husbands who are on the front line.

“That eases his mind a little bit when he's deployed and … helps him focus on his job in order to come home safely,” said Becki Chambers, the coordinator of the program.

Some members of the 160th are still overseas. Others are waiting to be re-deployed.

When I was in the Navy, firearms were prohibited in base housing. Perhaps our soldiers overseas would have their 'minds eased' if they knew that their families were not denied effective self-defense tools in their absence.
