"Safety Bullet...will lock up a gun when accidentally fired"

"The Safety Bullet would be left in the firing chamber. If the owner needed to shoot the weapon for self protection it could be quickly ejected, clearing the way for a real bullet in the next chamber."

"If someone should pull the trigger with the Safety Bullet in the firing chamber, however, it would jam the weapon until removed with a special tool."

"Worley believes it would prevent suicides as well as accidental shootings such as the one that occurred next door about six months ago."
 

Doctors whose mistakes led to death still have their licenses

Given the anti-gun stances some doctors and medical organizations have taken lately, this is noteworthy...

"The state agency responsible for disciplining Texas doctors has not revoked the license of a single physician who committed medical errors in the past five years, including some whose botched operations or misdiagnoses resulted in patient deaths, the Dallas Morning News reported in today's editions."

"The newspaper reviewed thousands of pages of Texas State Board of Medical Examiners disciplinary orders and more than 100 malpractice case files in 18 county courthouses across Texas."

"It found that since January 2001, the board had not investigated the deaths of 1,000 patients."

"Picture this: A young man walks along a street here, points a gun in the air and rattles off a few rounds at nothing in particular."

"Given that discharging a firearm within the village limits is illegal for anyone who doesn't wear a police shield, how much would you expect this trigger-happy pedestrian would be fined by Bartonville authorities?"

"One hundred dollars? Five hundred? A thousand?"

"The fine is five bucks," said Bartonville Police Chief Brian Fengel. "We need to revisit that."

We cannot today fully appreciate the tremendous impact of this event. ... America would prove that equality of opportunity, coupled with the protection of our unalienable rights granted equally by our Creator, would inspire men and women to achieve a freedom that they, themselves, never dreamed was possible."

Headline: "Hillary Rodham Clinton emerges as moderate"

'She has never been the wild lefty'

WASHINGTON (AP) -- "When Hillary Rodham Clinton began her Senate bid, some on the right warned she would make even liberals such as Ted Kennedy look conservative."

"Fund-raising letters that raised millions of dollars for Clinton's Republican opponents decried her 'wild-eyed radical leftist views' and branded her as 'a liberal's liberal'."

Yeah, and she used to "hunt ducks" too!
 

Goodbye Firing Pin, Hello Electronic Ignition

"Consider it a shot in the arm for factory sporting rifles. Remington's new Model 700 EtronX target rifle and pesky varmint bagger is more than just another gun. It's the opening salvo in what could well be the next revolution in firearms."

"What Remington has done is take the mechanical trigger and related hardware required to energize and release the firing pin of its standard Model 700 and replace it with an electronic trigger and an electronic ignition system. Why? In a word--accuracy."

Basketball star Alan Iverson has been cleared of weapons charges after his accusers testified they never actually saw a gun, but that Iverson behaved like he might have one. Tough-on-crime RKBA advocates who hoped he'd take an Operation Cease Fire fall on hearsay evidence are left eating crow.
 

FL: Feds in Miami charge seven with illegally selling firearms
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"Federal authorities charged six people and one corporation with illegally selling guns and said some of the sales were tied to specific crimes in South Florida."

"One store, the Cash Inn in Miami, sold 28 guns in 2000 that were later involved in crimes, said U.S. Attorney Guy Lewis."

"Irfan Hazoor, a sales clerk at Cash Inn, was charged with selling firearms to a felon, lying about gun sales and selling firearms without the proper paper work."

KABA NOTE: If BATF agents are letting actual felons handle firearms to affect these arrests, that violates the prohibition of firearms handling that comes with a felony conviction -- agents involved in such lawbreaking should be properly charged. And if they are only pretending to be felons, these gun dealers never sold firearms to felons in the first place -- so charges should be dropped.

It's true that there are at least occasional bad eggs in the gun dealer community. But BATF's accusations don't mean these guys fit the description -- the agency's reputation for fudging the truth is widely known, as is their corruption, inefficiency and downright stupidity.

"Since Sept. 11, the FBI has budgeted tens of millions of dollars to turn its massive collection of computerized case files, memos, tips and phone intercepts from an investigative black hole into a mother lode of predictive intelligence."

"If the effort succeeds, by Sept. 11, 2004, it will have replaced today's system—so antiquated and cumbersome that many top FBI executives have never learned to use it—with a high-tech brain that instantly culls years of records and eventually will simultaneously check databanks in other government agencies, public records and the Internet."

"And that's just the beginning."

NJ: Cops Planted Gun On Suspect

"A videotape shows members of an elite Newark police task force planting a gun on a suspect and illegally seizing his car, the local public defender charges."

"The U.S. Attorney’s Office and the county prosecutor received copies of the tape this week, but both agencies declined to comment. A union representative said the officers denied any wrongdoing and said they may file a lawsuit against the suspect, Timothy Jones, if he continues making what they said are false allegations."

KABA NOTE: These New Jersey officers are among the large group of oath-breaking public servants who'll throw an innocent female in jail for carrying a firearm to protect herself from rapists and murderers. Perhaps the full exposure of this situation will inspire a few more patriots to stand up against such overt thuggery.

"Lynn Rivers could be doing more than salvaging her own career and ending John Dingell's if she wins next week's primary election matchup of incumbent Democratic U.S. House members."

"She may save gun control."

"In a year in which Democrats both nationally and in Michigan have soft-pedaled support for new gun restrictions, Rivers has made them a centerpiece of her campaign in the new 15th District that covers Monroe, and parts of Washtenaw and Wayne counties."

"This was all there was to it? I could have done this all day. I fired the rest of the bullets in the chamber and happily reloaded for my next target."

"Zeller adjusted the 10-inch target from 9 feet to 12, then 16, then 21. Each time, I got a little better, never missing the target."

"I was either a natural, or shooting a gun is surprisingly simple. I'm guessing the latter is more accurate."

"Some legal experts believe these moves violate Constitutional guarantees, but others argue that not only are they legal, they are necessary to ensure national security."

PENN STATE EDITORIAL BOARD SAYS:

"A policy for police officers is being unfairly criticized. The policy, which calls for police officers to turn in their service weapons at the end of their shifts, was brought on after an officer was charged with shooting and killing his girlfriend."

"This policy [is] another way to keep more weapons off the street, whether they be in the hands of the 'good guys' or 'bad guys.' Police use their weapons when they are on the clock, but once they're off weapons should stay at the station."

"Whenever George Bush gives us that Alfred E. Neuman smirk and begins prattling about 'freedom,' I know that some member of his administration is about to announce the formation of another link in our chain of subjugation to the state."

"Like the heads of warring states who fill the media with words of their dedication to 'peace' – all the while looking for bigger clubs with which to smash their enemies – 'freedom,' in the mouths of politicians, has a reverse meaning from the normal import of the word."

"Just as any piece of legislation that bears the word 'fair' in its title conveys notice of an expanded governmental power over our lives, the meaning of freedom is always corrupted when uttered by politicians. Like the cynically cruel words 'work shall make you free' over the gates at Nazi concentration camps, we must be ever vigilant in how government officials use language."

"Recent pronouncements from the Bush Administration and national security initiatives put in place in the Reagan era could see internment camps and martial law in the United States."

"When president Ronald Reagan was considering invading Nicaragua he issued a series of executive orders that provided the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) with broad powers in the event of a 'crisis' such as 'violent and widespread internal dissent or national opposition against a US military invasion abroad'. They were never used."

"But with the looming possibility of a US invasion of Iraq, recent pronouncements by President George Bush's domestic security chief, Tom Ridge, and an official with the US Civil Rights Commission should fire concerns that these powers could be employed or a de facto drift into their deployment could occur."

"He let out a yelp as the one-second pulsating charge fiercely twisted his muscles into submission. He crumpled to the floor, ending his part in a training session that clearly illustrated the awesome power of the hand-held device that is becoming increasingly more common in the arsenal of the Orange County Sheriff's Office."

"While signing Blue Book of Airgun copies at the recent NRA convention in Reno, I was visited by Evan Nappen, an attorney from New Jersey. He has defended airgun owners from state prosecution by invoking a FEDERAL law that generally is not well known at this time. The most amazing thing about this law, the key points of which were appended to a law which attempts to force special markings on paintball and imitation firearms is that it PRE-EMPTS all state laws concerning the sale of airguns."
