"As the Senate moves closer to a vote this week on the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, gun-rights advocates are jubilant over the bipartisan support for the bill, which bans frivolous lawsuits targeting gun manufactures."

"National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said 2nd Amendment supporters have played a large role in politicians’ changing attitudes toward firearms. ..." ...

"LaPierre said politicians are cognizant of the power the 2nd Amendment holds, particularly during elections. Whether a candidate supports gun rights during a campaign is significant, he said."
 

Federalist Walking Papers?

"In 'Future of Federalism Is in Voters' Hands,' Robert Levy, a Cato senior fellow in constitutional studies, writes that a 'reinvigorated federalism, according to many U.S. Supreme Court watchers, is the most likely legacy of the past 18 years under Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. The current court -- comprising the same nine justices since Stephen Breyer's appointment in 1994 -- has invoked federalism to invalidate all or part of the Gun-Free School Zones Act, the Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the Violence Against Women Act.'"
 

John G. Roberts and the New Federalism

"Unfortunately, it is difficult to gage Judge Roberts’s stance on the New Federalism. He has no paper trail for his friends to tout or enemies to attack. Whether in private practice or working for the government, Roberts has served as one of the nation’s foremost advocates. And an advocate simply makes the strongest arguments on behalf of his client. When he was confirmed to the D.C. Court of Appeals in 2003, Roberts made clear that lawyers must make arguments even if they disagree with them. If a lawyer failed to do so, Roberts noted, 'he wouldn’t be doing his job.' Hence, the myriad legal briefs and memos Roberts has written over the years provide little assistance in evaluating his judicial philosophy."

"I realize that it would be a very rare, but possible conclusion to suggest that a criminal may actually possess a weapon like this. I do want to clarify once again that I am a conservative who is in favor of preserving our Second Amendment rights to bear arms."

"I also want to clarify the fact that, YES, I realize that the Second Amendment says nothing about hunting. This was used as an example and the National Rifle Association actually does mention hunters a lot in their political victory campaigns and other areas. I guess that I may had led you astray when I referred to it like this. I merely used hunting as an example as to one reason why we need to protect our gun rights. ..."

"Certain sections of the Patriot Act expire this year. It's very important to our country and law enforcement officials that we renew them."

"Remember Richard Reid, the 'shoe bomber' who tried to take down an airplane? He was recently sentenced to life in prison. In court he said, 'I will not apologize for my actions. I am at war with your country.'"

"America and its allies continue to have sworn enemies who want to harm innocent citizens. The recent attacks in London are a reminder that terrorists are real, still active and sometimes able to carry out their murderous plans."

"Congress has a heavy agenda this week before beginning a monthlong vacation, planning to send President Bush long-stalled energy and highway bills, a trade agreement with Central America and a billion-plus dollars to plug a shortage in veterans health care programs." ...

"A bill shielding gun manufacturers from liability suits from victims of gun crimes is expected to get a Senate vote."

"The National Rifle Association asked Senate Republicans to withdraw the bill last year after Democrats successfully amended it to extend an expiring ban on assault weapons. The bill is S 397."
 

Standing up to the NRA

"It's not every day politicians stand up to the National Rifle Association like the mayor and the City Council recently did in Columbus, Ohio. Now the NRA is making the city pay for it. Days after city officials banned assault weapons, the NRA canceled plans to hold its 2007 convention in the city. But Columbus will not be cowed."

"Any mid-sized city like Columbus could use a national convention expected to draw more than 60,000 people and generate more than $15-million in revenue. Yet city officials valued public safety above financial gain."

"The NRA has every right to hold its convention wherever it chooses, and city officials have the obligation to act in the best interests of their constituents. Columbus' police union supports the assault weapons ban, which is stronger than the federal ban Congress allowed to expire."

"The Transportation Security Administration violated privacy protections by secretly collecting personal information on at least 250,000 people." ...

"TSA had promised it would only use the limited information about passengers that it had obtained from airlines. Instead, the agency and its contractors compiled files on people using data from commercial brokers and then compared those files with the lists."

"The GAO reported that about 100 million records were collected."

"East Aurora was booming in 1905: Elbert Hubbard, who had launched the 'Roycroft movement,' opened the Roycroft Inn - and a handful of far-sighted sportsmen founded the East Aurora Association for the Protection of Fish, Game and Song Birds."

"This year the East Aurora Fish & Game Club marks its centennial."

"The National Shooting Sports Foundation has partnered with Lt. Gov. John Cherry and the local law enforcement community, including the Gaylord Police Department, Otsego County Sheriff Department, and the Michigan State Police, to distribute 1.3 million free gun locks in Michigan as part of the national Project ChildSafe (PCS) initiative."

"Law enforcement representatives will distribute the cable-style gun locks Tuesday under the Pavilion on Court, from 9 a.m. to noon. A previous press release had incorrectly stated an event would be held today (Saturday) at the Gaylord Kmart."

"The gun-huggers at the National Rifle Association will not be holding their 2007 convention, as had been planned, in Columbus, Ohio. Lucky Columbus. Of course, the NRA would never even consider N.Y.C. This city does not believe in blowing the heads off small animals. Or people. Which is why it wants to get tougher on illegal weapons. Guess what group is opposed?"

"City officials are trying to cut off the plague of weapons at its source by suing gun makers and distributors that carelessly deliver their wares to unscrupulous dealers who, in turn, sell to criminals. It's a strategy any levelheaded politician would love - but the NRA and its pals in Congress are doing their darnedest to keep the supply lines open."

"The move has been prompted by the Violent Crime Reduction (VCR) Bill, which would ban the import and sale of most imitation firearms."

"The bill is designed to tackle the sharp rise in the use of replica weapons in crimes."

"OPPOSITION Senator Arthur Williams is recommending that the bill amending the Firearms Act, to introduce an independent authority to grant firearm licences, should also provide the authority with the power to set up a national firearms registry."

"'The firearms registry which I propose is not one to merely keep a record of the type of firearm and the serial number, but also to keep the ballistics record of each firearm,' Williams contended."

"Asked if the family was taking legal action, he said: 'They have to pay for that in many ways, because if they do not, they are going to kill many people, they are going to kill thousands of people. They just kill the first person they see, that's what they did.'"

"The 28-year-old added: 'They killed my cousin, they could kill anyone.'"

"Police unlawfully stormed houses on Palm Island after last year's riot, an inquiry by Queensland's crime watchdog has found."

"In a report released by Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson today, the Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) said heavily armed officers did not have the power to burst into the homes in the Aboriginal community after the riot in November last year."

"Under the Public Safety Preservation Act 1986, police should not have entered and searched the private houses because the riots had ended and there was no longer a state of emergency, the report stated."

"One passenger at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport had a blowgun with darts; another traveling the same day had a bullwhip. Neither one was Indiana Jones and both had to surrender the items to board their planes."

"For every blowgun confiscated at airport security checkpoints, thousands of butane lighters are surrendered; for every bullwhip, there are buckets of penknives."

"Nearly four years after 9/11 led to new rules on what cannot be carried on aircraft, thousands of people are stopped at airports every day and told, 'You can't bring that on board.'"

"One by one, the women learned how to load and shoot guns -- a .22 caliber revolver, pistol and rifle."

"In a windowless, wood-paneled room, they wore bright orange ear plugs and fed bullets into the guns' magazines. Then they slid the barrels into place, undid the safety and cradled their non-trigger fingers around the hand grip." ...

"Ms. Marchetti and about 25 other women learned how to care for and fire guns yesterday at the New Bedford Revolver and Rifle Club, a nonprofit organization on Bolton Street. The event, called Women on Target, was sponsored by the National Rifle Association and was meant to inspire women to practice target shooting -- still a male-dominated sport, club members said."

"Dogged by scandal, the Los Angeles Police Department is looking beyond human judgment to technology to identify bad cops."

"This month, the agency began using a $35 million computer system that tracks complaints and other telling data about officers -- then alerts top supervisors to possible signs of misconduct."

"The system is central to a federal oversight program ordered by the U.S. Justice Department after a wave of abuse allegations in the 1990s cast doubt on the LAPD's ability -- and willingness -- to police itself."
