UK: Britain mulls identity cards, in return to past
Submitted by: Doug Charette

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"National identity cards, phased out of British life half a century ago, could make a controversial comeback under government plans being unveiled on Wednesday."

"Home Secretary David Blunkett wants to reintroduce a form of card as a way to monitor possible terrorist suspects, crack down on illegal immigration and tackle benefit fraud."

"But critics, ranging from rights groups to opposition politicians, say such a system would be an infringement of civil liberties, hugely expensive to run and impractical to enforce."
 

The Impact of Gun Laws on Police Deaths

"This paper uses state-level data from 1984-1996 to examine how right-to-carry laws and waiting periods affect the numbers of police deaths. Many people oppose concealed weapons carry laws because they believe these laws jeopardize law enforcement officials, who risk their lives to protect the citizenry."

"This paper strongly rejects this contention."
 

OH: Gun robberies soar in Cincinnati

"A robber threatened to blow away a college kid in University Heights. A gun was shoved in a grandfather's face while he sat in his car in Clifton. A waitress and her boyfriend had a gun pointed at them in Corryville."

"More than 100 times from January through April this year, armed robbers poked guns at people on streets or in parking lots in the city, demanding they empty their pockets."


"University of Cincinnati student John Warner was held up at gunpoint in University Heights last month."

"Robberies at gunpoint in Cincinnati during the first four months of this year were nearly double what they were during the same time in 2001 and 2000."

KABA NOTE: This entire article appears to basically urge people to give thugs whatever they want. Local citizens' right to self-defense is greatly impaired by the state and local laws, virtually assuring easy pickens for people who deserve a bullet more than a wallet.

"Ask the average American what we are celebrating on July Fourth and the chances are very good you won't get the right answer. Yet today, as never before, knowing that we are commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence and understanding the significance of that document are of paramount importance to our survival as a free and independent people."

"It was out of that document that the most stupendous achievement in self-government ever accomplished in all the world's history came. We pretend to revere the Constitution (which we now largely ignore) as the ultimate guarantee of our rights, but fail to understand that without the Declaration of Independence upon which it was built, it could never have had the force with which its founders endowed it."
 

MA: Immediate Action Needed on Consumer Protection Bill
Submitted by: Doug Charette

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
NOTE: This "report" is from an anti-gun group. Generally speaking, when they adamantly oppose a bill, it's a good bill. This one seems to meet that rule...

"This bill would create new committees, new paperwork, and cost the taxpayer's money by forcing the Massachusetts Attorney General's office to send all proposed consumer regulations to a special legislative committee for review, with no time limits. Therefore, any Massachusetts's AG wanting to extend consumer safety laws to guns (or anything else for that matter) would run the risk of having all their powers significantly limited and subject to constant review by legislators, tying up proposed consumer safety laws for years or indefinitely."

"This bill is designed to scare away other states that would like to follow the lead of MA in extending consumer safety laws to cover firearms."
 

Group Applauds Wal-Mart Policy Change On Gun Sale Background Checks

"Americans for Gun Safety Foundation (AGSF) today applauded Wal-Mart for adopting the group's suggestion to institute a "don't know, don't sell" policy on guns."

"In a letter last April to the CEOs of Wal-Mart, K-Mart and three other national firearms retailers, AGSF asked the companies to adopt a voluntary policy by which they would refuse to transfer firearms to prospective buyers until a criminal background check of the buyer is completed, even if the check takes longer than 3 days. The letter referenced a recent report by AGSF showing that over a 30-month period, 10,000 felons and others prohibited from owning a gun were able to obtain a firearm because the background check could not be completed within the three business days allotted by federal law."

"For real estate agent Paula Andrews, it seemed inconceivable that she would be robbed at gunpoint while showing houses to a potential buyer."

"In May, however, that's exactly what happened to her."

[Instead of pulling out her wallet, she may have been in a position to pull out a .38 snubby and blasted him. Nanny state thinking strikes again.]

"The crime prompted the Broward County Sheriff's Office to offer a class that shows real estate agents how to protect themselves while working."

The U.S. Attorney's Office vowed to battle rising gun violence in Boston yesterday by probing sources of illegal guns and huddling with local law enforcement to hit career criminals with tough federal sentences.


``You can't tolerate this spike in violence,' U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan said. ``If we slow down the supply side of guns, we'll be able to slow down the violence as well.'

The rise in firearms violence has registered in the halls of the federal court this year.

KABA NOTE: Make it easier for the good guys to defend against local thuggery and at least a few of these repeat offenders will not make it back to the courthouse.
 

CA: CRPA releases gun safety public service announcements for July 4th holiday

"The California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) today released to California radio stations public service announcements calling for safe and responsible celebrating this Fourth of July holiday. The PSAs, the sixth in a series of CRPA PSAs on gun safety, can be obtained from CRPA's spokesperson. Similar CRPA PSAs have been broadcast by many radio stations for the July 4th and New Years Eve holidays for the last several years, and many stations intend to broadcast them again this year."

"In the past, the Fourth of July and New Years Eve have unfortunately been marked by some irresponsible people celebrating by shooting guns into the air. CRPA opposes any and all irresponsible gun usage, particularly this bad practice, which can have tragic results when the bullet comes back down to earth. Discharging guns in such a manner is already a crime."

"When Congress returns next week from its Independence Day recess, we anticipate H.R. 4635 will be one of the first bills brought to the House floor for consideration. This legislation would mandate the establishment of a test program to allow as many as 1,400 properly trained commercial airline pilots to have access to firearms as a last line of defense against terrorist hijackers."

"The test program has bipartisan support, and would give preference to pilots with prior military or law enforcement experience. While the NRA would like to see this option extended to all properly trained flight deck crew, this legislation represents a good first step in the right direction."

President "Make Pilots Defenseless" Bush's Independence Day Message

"...the Founders demonstrated their love for liberty and proved that they were willing to fight and die for freedom."

"Americans possess a greater national unity..."

"Americans have been steadfast in their efforts to build a country of liberty..."

"...we reaffirm our determination to preserve our Forefathers' legacy of freedom."

Then there are his actions:

1) He'd rather shoot commercial airplanes down with F-16's than let pilots defend the cockpit.

2) He signed the "Patriot" Act without reading it, after it was handed to him by a bunch of criminals who didn't read it either -- stripping away a host of rights protections the same Thomas Jefferson of whom he speaks fought to protect.

3) His "Justice" Department intervened to assure that the Supreme Court would not hear two valid, needed Second Amendment cases -- each of which should have been heard and rightly decided in favor of the liberty to which he frequently pays lip service.

etc. etc. etc., ad nauseam

"Do not try to be a hero when confronted with armed robbers, police warned today."

"Yesterday an armed robber fired a shot from his handgun as he and a security guard struggled over a bag of money on Auckland's North Shore."

"The robber, who wore a rubber clown or carnival mask with white hair, had pointed a gun at the guard's head and demanded he hand over a bag of money at a shopping centre in Highbury, Birkenhead, on Auckland's North Shore."

"The guard initially refused to hand over the bag but the robber won the struggle and fled with tens of thousands of dollars."

"Police never identified themselves, showed a warrant or gave warning before shooting James Hulett to death during a Sunday morning raid of his home...his wife said."

"June Hulett said the law enforcement officers pulled up in an unmarked brown van, yelled a racial slur at her and then trumped up claims that they found illegal prescription drugs during the raid."

"She said she had no way of knowing the men in the raid were police officers -- she thought they were robbers. After the shooting, she said she noticed a small deputy's badge on one officer's leg and law enforcement insignia on the back of their shirts."

"I had no idea, and I don't know how James could have known," she said.

The graphic that launches this well-planned attack on the tools of Liberty sets its sights squarely on the USA.

"For all the fears about tanks, aircraft and high-tech weaponry - it is simple pistols, rifles and machine guns that fuel most conflicts around the world."

"But the Bush administration in the United States has insisted that there are some things it will not accept, like limits on the transfer of small arms to non-state actors and controls on the domestic sale and manufacture of small arms."

"The Bradys, who have played major roles in the struggle to reduce gun violence, said that Republican Jim Ryan and Democrat Rod Blagojevich have been allies in this effort."

Blagojevich is a dedicated gun-banner, and Ryan isn't exactly Thomas Jefferson, either.

"The University of Utah hopes to get a little help from a lot of friends in convincing a court that it can legally ban concealed handguns on campus."

"A half dozen religious organizations, seven higher education associations, the Utah Hospitals and Health Systems Association, two employer groups and two public-policy organizations filed friend-of-the-court briefs Tuesday in federal court supporting the U.'s gun prohibition."

KABA NOTE: If these folks succeed, they should all be sued by the first rape or robbery victim who'd have carried a gun for self-defense but was banned from doing so by these sub-American thugs.
 

Safe Storage Gun Laws: Accidental Deaths, Suicides, and Crime
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"It is frequently assumed that safe storage gun laws reduce accidental gun deaths and total suicides, while the possible impact on crime rates are ignored. However, given existing work on the adverse impact of other safety laws, such as safety caps for storing medicine, even the very plausible assumption of reduced accidental gun deaths cannot be taken for granted."

"Our paper analyzes both state and county data spanning nearly twenty years, and we find no support that safe storage laws reduce either juvenile accidental gun deaths or suicides. Instead, these storage requirements appear to impair people's ability to use guns defensively."

"And in this war-ravaged capital, weapons like AK-47s made in Russia and North Korea sell for $200."

"Egyptian, Libyan and Yugoslav-made rifles go for $150. The cheapest American-made ones trade for about $100."

Wal-Mart tightens gun policy

"Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the nation's biggest seller of guns, has quietly ordered its stores to adopt a policy on sales that's tougher than federal law requires and is drawing criticism from gun-rights groups."

"Wal-Mart executives, in an internal memo obtained by the Los Angeles Times, told store managers five weeks ago to stop selling firearms if authorities were not able to determine whether the would-be buyers should be banned from owning a weapon."

"Under federal law, if authorities cannot complete a criminal background check on a gun buyer within three business days, retailers are allowed to hand over the weapon even though the buyer's status is unclear."

The company "decided to take the extra step toward keeping guns out of the hands of individuals who possibly ought not to have them," according to the memo.

"Brewer, owner of the Gun and Dive Shop, at 140 Main St., wrote to the council asking that it look into the matter, hoping the council will direct that Smith take a closer look at Rhode Island General Laws regarding the issuing of a concealed weapons permits."

"An Anne Arundel County grand jury decided yesterday not to indict an FBI agent who mistook an unarmed Pasadena man for a suspected bank robber and shot him in the face."

"The grand jury deliberated 20 minutes before declining to indict Special Agent Christopher Braga on charges of first-degree assault, second-degree assault or reckless endangerment in the shooting, county prosecutors said."

"Braga shot Joseph C. Schultz, 20, in the face with an M-4 rifle March 1. Schultz was riding in a car driven by his girlfriend when FBI agents, searching for a suspect believed to be armed, pulled the car over on Fort Smallwood Road."

Question of the Day: What would happen if the victim had shot an FBI agent in the face "by accident"?

"Ever since Robert Mugabe's thugs began invading farms in 2000 there have been discussions among people in as to whether violence should be used against the Mugabe thugs."

"Let me begin by tracing the history of discussions here in Africa regarding the use of force against farm invasions. In the first few months of the invasions, the black farm workers began to realize that they would lose their jobs if the farms were taken over. So then they began fighting back. There were a handful of instances where black farm workers ganged together and fought off Mugabe's farm invaders. It was magnificent seeing the whites and blacks getting together, making a plan and then winning. But Mugabe did not put up with that. He immediately sent in army officers, dressed in civilian clothes and armed with AK-47's. From then onwards all resistance stopped."

"Red folders may seem harmless enough, but what they signify for some convicted criminals is the difference between a few years in state prison and more than a dozen in a federal lock-up."

"Local, state and federal law enforcement officers assign red folders to people identified by the Violent Crime Task Force as violent offenders at high risk for offending again."

"The folders work like this: When a person identified by the task force is released from prison and put on probation, his criminal record is placed in a red file folder. The folder goes to the magistrate’s office where, if the person is arrested again, the magistrate will have his criminal record in hand and will likely assign a high bond."

"Unfortunately, city officials don't agree. The gap between official and grassroots New York revealed itself with stunning clarity last weekend, when two unarmed women showed more courage than the whole city government put together."

"OK, do you want to live in an independent United States, or would you prefer to be incorporated into a world government?"

"It's no contest, as far as I'm concerned. I will answer to no laws except those of the United States. I believe it would be a crime if the present generation resubmerged the United States into a world empire after our forefathers fought a bitter war to get us out of one."

"And why did they do that? Because they believed that the people in this land ought to have the right to govern themselves, to write their own laws, to set up their own form of government. That's what the Declaration of Independence states:"
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
