Feinstein Gun Ban Could Come up in the Senate Next Week (GOA)
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"On Tuesday, the Senate is scheduled to begin consideration of legislation to limit class action lawsuits -- a prime candidate for so-called liberal 'killer amendments,' including the Feinstein amendment to extend the ban on semiautomatic firearms and magazines."

"Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has threatened to offer her semi-auto ban to any 'appropriate' legislative vehicle, and the class action bill is about as 'appropriate' as any on the Senate's legislative schedule."

"Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) has, at his disposal, a variety of parliamentary techniques to prevent Feinstein from offering the semiautomatic ban. Back in March, he chose NOT to use these parliamentary maneuvers during the debacle over the ill-fated gun makers' protection act."

"The debate over this pro-gun bill resulted in a free-for-all which led to killer amendments being added to the bill -- amendments like the Feinstein gun ban."

"GOA is urging Frist to learn from his mistakes and to use his leadership office to insure that the Feinstein amendment is not offered to S. 2062."

This is what's called "Gun Control Run Amok"

-------
"U.S. Marines won't be allowed to fire a traditional gun salute at the graveside of a Mexican-American killed in Iraq, Mexican officials said Thursday, citing the country's laws against foreigners carrying firearms."

"Lance Cpl. Juan Lopez, who was born in the central Mexico state of Guanajuato and resided in Dalton, Ga., was one of four U.S. Marines killed in an ambush in Ramadi, west of Baghdad, on June 21."

"After family members elected to bury Lopez in Guanajuato, U.S. Marines made arrangements to give him a traditional 21-gun salute during the funeral ceremony, said Maj. Curt Gwilliam of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City."

"But Mexico's Secretary of Defense turned down the request, saying the salute violated constitutional measures preventing foreign soldiers from bearing arms on Mexican soil."

"From July 1 to 9 the world commemorates the Global Week of Small Arms, which is probably the largest globally co-ordinated small arms event. It is co-ordinated by the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA). The theme of this year's Week of Action is 'Control Arms Campaign - Calling for an Arms Trade Treaty'."

"The purpose of the Week of Action is to raise media and public awareness of the devastating impact of small arms on so many people's daily lives and to highlight the worldwide efforts being made to stop it, write Frederick Sadomba and Gwinyayi Dzinesa of the Centre for Defence Studies at the University of Zimbabwe."

"When he was a child, he befriended and defended the victims of bullies. At a time when even abolitionists looked down on black people, his son said of him, 'My father has always impressed on my mind that all men are born free and equal.' "

"He was a great warrior. When he was the Democratic nominee for president, he refused to accept campaign contributions. He was a superb American, admired by people of all political persuasions for his unimpeachable integrity and devotion to public service."

"He was Winfield Scott Hancock, born on February 14, 1824 near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. And in 1881, he was elected the sixth president of the National Rifle Association."

"There is absolutely no good reason any American civilian needs access to such weapons, whose high ammunition capacity and rapid-fire action are designed for use by troops in combat. Assault weapons are not hunting rifles." ...

"Data shows that the incidence of crimes committed with assault weapons declined significantly over the last decade as criminals' access to these weapons was reduced."

-------
KABA Note #1: It's a bill of rights, not a bill of needs.

KABA Note #2: The Bill of Rights doesn't specify the right to keep and bear arms as being for the purpose of hunting. As a matter of fact, hunting is never mentioned.

KABA Note #3: Actually, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, crimes committed with so-called "assault weapons" actually increased after the ban was implemented. In 1991, 8 percent of criminals admitted to having owned a military-style rifle. Less than 1 percent had used it in the commission of their crime.

In 2001, the Bureau of Justice Statistics revealed that about 2 percent of inmates had a military-style weapon during the commission of their crime.

"How these weapons, developed for the military and capable of inflicting terrible carnage on humans, became available for sale to the general population is mind boggling."

"Equally appalling is the possibility that the hard-working men and women in law enforcement could once again face military-style weapons out on the streets if the ban is not renewed by Congress."

"It doesn't take a Harvard math professor to validate the theory that banning certain assault weapons will reduce the frequency with which heinous crimes like the one in 1993 in San Francisco occur. ..."

Right. Terrorists can get military-style weapons cheaply, and in some cases, at no cost from nations and groups that sanction and support their activities, but instead they're going to run right out and pay hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of dollars to purchase them here legally?

FULL TEXT BELOW

Gov. Mitt Romney signed into law yesterday a permanent state ban on assault weapons.

The new bill extends a 1998 law - outlawing such weapons as AK-47s, UZIs and Mac-10 rifles - due to expire in September when the federal ban runs out.

The law creates a review panel to re-evaluate applications from those denied gun licenses due to "youthful indiscretions," and grants a 90-day grace period for license renewal.

"Disagreeing with America’s foreign policy and seeking to change it, responsibly or irresponsibly, is a fundamental right protected by the First Amendment. Shaming those who do it irresponsibly is our only lawful recourse and rightly so."

"Senator John Kerry in criticizing United States’ foreign policy and the incumbent president is acting responsibly, albeit I disagree with many of his views. On the other hand, Michael Moore, writer and director of the film 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' crosses that line regularly. The line is not set forth in the criminal statutes, but it is determined by Americans who know instinctively what actions and statements taken and uttered violate the obligations of responsibility and citizenship they deem applicable in time of war."

" 'It was clear that there was no criminal intent, no evidence of a crime having been committed by the police officers or the school personnel,' Attorney General Henry McMaster told The Associated Press."

"Still, McMaster was highly critical of the way Goose Creek police conducted the Nov. 5 raid at Stratford High School. Surveillance video showed officers with guns drawn ordering 100 students to the floor as a barking drug dog sniffed them for drugs. No drugs were found and no arrests were made."

This despite a record number of gun seizures already - 667 firearms so far this year. That's an astounding number, and likely indicates the presence of many more weapons walking around under waistbands and riding beneath car seats."

Without freedom there will be no firearms among the people; without firearms among the people there will not long be freedom. Certainly there are examples of countries where the people remain relatively free after the people have been disarmed, but there are no examples of a totalitarian state being created or existing where the people have personal arms. — Neal Knox
