Poaching becoming rampant on federal land

"Barbara Beasley was the first person called to investigate when three suspicious men were stopped on federal land in remote northwest Nebraska. It didn't take the U.S. Forest Service official long to find what they had been doing: digging an 18-by-10-foot hole more than 2 feet deep that left the fossilized bones of a prehistoric rhinoceros called a brontothere exposed. Plaster used to take casts of the bones and excavating tools also were found."

"The men, it turns out, were poaching fossils on federal land - a practice the U.S. Forest Service says has become rampant in recent years at Oglala National Grasslands near Toadstool Geological Park."

"With a second round of attempted terror attacks in London on their minds, the U.S. House of Representatives Thursday night approved 16 expiring provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act, making 14 of them permanent and extending two of the most controversial provisions for ten years." ...

"Supporters, including Republican leaders, said the legislation will help protect Americans by giving the government the power it needs to zero in on terror suspects; but critics say it gives the government too much power to intrude in the personal lives and personal records of law-abiding citizens." ...

"People have accused me of being "obsessive and overzealous" on this issue but that's okay with me. Ask some of the senior citizens in Cuba who have been under Castro's repressive regime for 45 years how they feel now. I bet many of them wish they would have been a little more 'obsessive and overzealous' about their freedom in 1959, instead of standing by passively when the communists took over. Look what it's gotten them!"

"I like to remind my Republican friends that the roots of the Brady Campaign are Republican to the core. I do it just to get them backpedaling after some dig about Democrats hating guns. I may also remind them that the original 1993 Assault Weapon Ban amendment could not have passed without Republican votes because eight Democrats voted NO and two of the eight were Nevada Senators Reid and Bryan."

"I generally think the best of everybody, so I had counted organizations like the Brady Campaign as sincere but illogical and misguided. Gun control folks are well intentioned but wrong."

"Recently I had an experience with the Brady Campaign that revealed a darker side." ...

"With archery deer season rapidly approaching, I also was thinking of the early muzzleloader season and wondering what 'those-in-the-know' had to say about modern muzzleloaders."

"So I went 'Yahooing,' and found all kinds of information on the use of modern muzzleloaders. There were some strong opinions about using the modern renditions of in-line muzzleloaders. There were those that felt that anything other than what 'Grand pappy' used was sacrilege to the sport of hunting. Other folks considered modern muzzleloading rifles as an efficiency type of weapon used to dispatch an animal quickly and humanely. I place myself in the latter group."

"WHEN an alert flashed to the control room of Operation Kratos at Scotland Yard last week that a suspected suicide bomber was entering an Underground station, a senior officer was asked to make a snap decision."

"His judgment that the London public were again under threat led to advice to officers at the scene that the man should be 'neutralised'."

"Seconds later three officers jumped on a man on a Northern line train and one pumped five bullets from an automatic pistol into his head."

Things have changed, so let's get tough (Letter)

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Fifth letter on the page


A gun buyback has got to be one of the sillier things suggested. Does anyone think street gang members and people shooting each other over drug turf, the basic culprits, are going to turn in their guns?

Get the guns off the streets with tougher laws, and the National Rifle Association be hanged. The right to bear arms was for a time when people hunted for food, there were marauding Indians and the British were at the gates.

Things have changed, and so should the nebulous Second Amendment.

"Scott Vogel had never before owned a gun when he purchased a bolt-action .50-caliber rifle over the Internet a few months ago with little more than his Illinois driver's license and Firearm Ownership ID card."

"Vogel, a Chicago resident and coordinator with the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence, said he did so on the group's behalf to show how easy it is to obtain a weapon powerful enough to strike targets more than a mile away, one that is able to pierce armor plating and potentially ground a jet aircraft during takeoff or landing."

"There are some huge flaws in the proposed law change in the state works, allowing center-fire rifles to be used to hunt deer this fall in selected Southern Tier and Central New York counties."

"Here are two:"

"One is that in the headlong rush to make available high-powered rifles to every deer hunter this fall, the law effectively cancels out the main reason why these counties produce large whitetail bucks every year."

"The July 17 letter from Rebecca Thoman, executive director of Citizens for a Safer Minnesota, 'Headline said it all,' is typical of anti-gunners. Every month in the American Rifleman, 'The Armed Citizen' is a page filled with stories of law-abiding citizens successfully defending themselves against assaults using the very tools that Thoman so detests."

"It's estimated that more than 2.5 million times a year firearms are used to deter a crime. According to the FBI, there are 80 million gun owners in the U.S. while the number of accidental gun deaths per year number about 1,500. That means the chances of accidental death are 0.0000188."

"When I talked to Mr. Kleck I asked him if he was surprised at the results he found especially when the police and press have always said that resisting leads to more violence."

"His reply of 'No, Not at all' surprised me. He went on that he had done other studies and research projects and findings elsewhere have shown that resisting normally lead to less injury to the victim."

"The report starts by showing how data was recorded and interpreted. Then the results are shown. The results are shown in chart form and good explanations throughout."

"The anonymity of ammunition is being fought with the proposal of Assembly Bill 352, which, if passed, would require that every semiautomatic handgun sold after January 2009 be equipped with a new microstamping technology that would allow law enforcement officials to link the used bullet cases to the handguns from which they were fired."

"This new technology would stamp a serial number on to every bullet fired from a particular gun. That number would be linked to the owner of the gun in already existing database of gun owners."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of men and women. — Thomas Paine, The Crisis, Intro. (Dec. 1776).
