Page, Arizona police chief Wayne Wright was fired, and he believes it's a result of the fact that nearly everyone on his staff including police officers signed a petition to recall the Mayor.

A civic meeting after the firing was quite lively:

"Minutes earlier, McDaniels, Webber and a handful of other residents entered council chambers. McDaniels approached the council table and asked for information about the firing. Told by Slavens the item was not on the agenda and it could not be discussed, McDaniels said, "Are you afraid to talk to the citizens you work for?""

"McDaniels did not relent, and Slavens asked Lt. Chata Cabral to escort McDaniels out of the building. Just before leaving the room, McDaniels turned to the table and blurted, "Cowards." "

"As America celebrates its first Independence Day since Sept. 11, a revolt is going on in left-wing city councils against the crackdown on terrorism. The revolt and the reaction to it raise fundamental questions about how much liberty Americans are willing to forgo to prevent further attacks."

"Though the public in general has supported the measures, the protests cast doubt on how patient and united Americans are in this time of war involving a real threat from a real enemy."

"The left has made most of the official noise about this issue. But NewsMax.com has also found division of opinion on the right."

"NYPD Emergency Service Unit cops are testing a high-powered, long-range assault rifle they believe will help them in their war on terrorism, The Post has learned."

"The department has 20 Colt M-4s, similar to weapons currently used by the Green Berets, Delta Force, Navy SEALs, FBI SWAT teams and other elite armed units."

"The new rifle, which fires .223-caliber bullets in three-round bursts, has been undergoing tests at the NYPD's outdoor range at Rodman's Neck in The Bronx."

"But a little experiment like the one I performed this week is my own display of fervent patriotism."

"I drove to Doug's Shoot 'N Sports in Taylorsville. A gun store would not typically draw me. I do not own a gun. Charlton Heston is not my president and I am not insured by Smith & Wesson. But sure as shooting, I know one thing: I love the passion of gun owners and their absolute zeal in defending their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms."

"Peggy and Dale Siler have a good thing going in the Ozarks."

"In April 1989, they opened a sporting clay course 11 miles north of Branson on U.S. Highway 65. The Ozark Shooters Sports Complex sits on 45 acres, plus 400 acres leased for special events."

"The terrain is gently rolling hills, woods and open grassland."

"The Silers had owned a gun shop in Springfield prior to their move to Walnut Shade, the official address for the complex."

"They are sticklers for safety."
 

KY: Attorney arrested on politically-motivated gun charges pleads not guilty

"An eastern Kentucky lawyer accused of carrying two concealed pistols into a courtroom pleaded not guilty Wednesday."

"Special Judge William Schmaedecke also lowered Philip D. McKenzie's bond from $100 million to $100,000. Mr. McKenzie was released Wednesday."

“A $100 million bond for a misdemeanor. We've got murderers in jail on much less bond,” Mr. McKenzie's attorney William Woods said before the arraignment. “This is absurd.”

"A pretrial conference in Mr. McKenzie's case was scheduled for Aug. 20."
 

IL: Leftist, anti-gun newspaper says, "Attacks on Blagojevich are way off target"

"Even on the Fourth of July, maybe especially on the Fourth of July, you don't expect a major political candidate's patriotism to be called into question."

"But that's definitely what seems to be going on in the race for Illinois governor with a pair of recent hits on Democratic nominee Rod Blagojevich."

"In the first instance, the intent is plain. In the second, it's a little more subtle, but you can judge for yourself."

"The initial volley came from the Illinois State Rifle Association, the local branch of the NRA."

"In a postcard mailed throughout the state last week, the gun owners group asks:"

"If this was July 4, 1776, which uniform would Rod Blagojevich wear? Minuteman ... or ... Redcoat?"

"Blagojevich denies that he is trying to take away the guns of law-abiding Americans..." -- revealing that he has the morals of a Clinton. Blagojevich has supported numerous gun BANS including outright handgun bans and bans of the .50 caliber rifle.

This anti-individual right "study" is wroght with prohibitionist delusion, misread and misunderstood historical facts and more. One of its premises:

"The Second Amendment provides no protection for personal weapons use, including hunting, sporting, collecting, or even personal self-protection."

Amazingly, this shows up on TomPaine.com -- clearly, they picked the wrong domain name. And do note the linked articles, from beneath this one, where VPC's lying Tom Diaz's articles are promoted.

"Since then, Benninghoff and his wife, Joan, have purchased or traded to obtain 6,500 items dating from 1690 to 1812."

"Their collection ranges from weaponry, such as the 1760 Light Dragoon British walnut pistol, to cooking utensils, currency and newspapers, including an original copy of "The Continental Journal and Weekly Register" published May 17, 1781."

"They own a 1777 Oerter rifle, crafted by Pennsylvania gunsmith Christian Oerter of Christian Springs, Pa. On display across the room is the dime-sized brown musket ball that started it all."

"The couple, Cinnaminson residents for the last 27 years, will donate their entire collection to the National Center for the American Revolution, scheduled to open in 2005 at Valley Forge National Historical Park."

The United Kingdom spent £92,000,000 to upgrade their army's main battle rifle, only to find that its replacement is also having some problems...

"Soldiers in Afghanistan have reported three faults with the army's new SA80-A2 rifles, the Ministry of Defence say."

"Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon has told troops he would investigate claims the weapon misfires badly, the same problem suffered by the gun it replaced."

LAHTI, Finland (AP) -- "Matthew Emmons of the United States came from behind and beat leader Espen Berg-Knutsen of Norway to win the world championship title in the rifle, prone position, from 50 meters Thursday."

"Berg-Knutsen led with 598 points out of 600 going into the final, but Emmons shot his last few rounds well, while Berg-Knutsen faded."

KABA NOTE: It's interesting to see NJ.com -- a New Jersey website -- promoting this victory. Chances are good that rifle champion could be arrested for possessing his gear in the state.

"A TOP racehorse trainer is facing jail after being accused of firing a shotgun at teenagers who caused £90,000 of damage to his cottages."

"Former jockey Donal Nolan was charged with twice firing the gun at a group of 14-year-olds after being driven to despair by malicious hooligans."

"The schoolboys had repeatedly vandalised and set alight the isolated cottages that the Lanarkshire-based trainer had spent thousands renovating."

"Last week, Nolan, 45, was cleared by a court of taking the law into his own hands and discharging the weapon at the youngsters."

"But he was convicted of possessing a loaded gun without a proper licence."

"CIVIL liberties groups reacted with concern yesterday to government proposals requiring every UK resident to have a card proving their identity."

"They objected to the idea of ID cards in principle and voiced fears over infringement of privacy, warning that government officials would have access to vast amounts of information about individuals at the touch of a button."

"Entitlement cards, similar to those already issued to asylum seekers, would contain a computer chip capable of recording a photograph and fingerprints along with information on home addresses, date of birth, family members and serial numbers."

KABA NOTE: Said the armed police statist to the disarmed peasant, "What are you going to do about it!"

"Three masked robbers - one apparently armed with a gun - forced a terrified Group 4 security driver into a beauty-spot car park."

"They tied him up and left him in the back of his vehicle for five hours after making off with an estimated cash haul of £100,000."

"The money was being delivered to cash machines in north-west Scotland when the heist took place south of Crianlarich, Perthshire."

"Authorities are investigating the mistaken parole of a California Institution for Men inmate who went free despite an outstanding $1 million warrant for his arrest on charges of torture, kidnapping and sexual assault."

"Prison officials said Wednesday that the June 22 release of Eric Charles Lewis was an error, but they still had not determined exactly how it occurred or what caused it."

KABA NOTE: They nabbed the guy two days later when he checked in with his parole officer. But if he'd decided to flee, local citizens are, for the most part, banned from defending themselves against such a person when outside the home.

"The police stand-off ended just after 5pm when a man was arrested without a struggle."

"No shots were fired and no one was hurt."

"It is believed a weapon was discovered, but it is not yet known whether it was real or an imitation."

“They were out their laughing and antagonizing them,” neighbor Laura Gleason said.

WA: Urban League's anti-gunner James Kelly finally charged in violating same gun law he endorses

"The City Attorney's Office filed a weapons charge yesterday against the president of the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, alleging that he brought a firearm onto school grounds."

"In a written statement to police, James Kelly admitted carrying a handgun when he attended an evening community meeting at Rainier Beach High School on May 29."

"Under state law, it is a misdemeanor to possess a firearm on school premises. If convicted, Kelly faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $5,000 fine. Kelly would also lose his concealed-weapons permit for three years."

According to CCRKBA, "Kelly, a leader in the African-American community, is a well-known advocate of extremist gun control measures, including this state's Gun Free School Zone law..." That statement came out as CCRKBA was pressing the city attorney's office to get off it's butt and deal with this elitist hypocrite.

"Wal-Mart has decided NOT TO sell any firearms to those that have been declined at the point of purchase, by the FBI, ignoring the 3 day 'must give' gun law in place now. I know this so called 'instant check' is bogus, because I hold a concealed carry permit, and I was mistakenly denied a gun purchase by the un-informed gun shop owner who did not need to run a check on me anyway."

Not directly RKBA-related, but Big Brother continues to grow even on Independence Day, which shows how little this country thinks of liberty today.

"The city will become the second in the nation - Tampa, Fla., is the other - to employ facial-recognition software to assist police in identifying and catching criminals and missing persons."

"Critics say the software is inaccurate and an invasion of privacy."

"This is a Big Brother contraption,' said Kent Willis, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia. "It is a device that allows the police to take pictures of citizens who are doing nothing wrong while they're in a public place.'

"Grayson attorney Philip McKenzie called his arrest this week for carrying two concealed handguns into court a reason to file a civil rights lawsuit."

"Number one, I'm not guilty of any crime," McKenzie said following an arraignment Wednesday in Carter District Court. "And what has been done has been done politically, without a doubt."

"During the hearing, special judge William Schmaedecke reduced his bond from $100 million to $100,000 unsecured. McKenzie was released from custody after the hearing." [emphasis ours]

"McKenzie, 52, of Grayson was charged Monday with two counts of carrying a concealed deadly weapon, both Class A misdemeanors, Sheriff Kevin McDavid said."
