Assault weapons is 'a tough sell' now

"Rarely do opposing sides on gun control see eye to eye on any aspect of it, but on this they agree: The 1994 ban on assault weapons didn't save America from the Columbine massacre or the D.C. snipers."

"Common ground ends there, though, with the result that came Sept. 13, the ban born of such horrific incidents as the Long Island Rail Road rampage may fade into extinction, a casualty of election-year politics."

Should the government create tougher gun laws? (The ignorance of today's high school students)

"Guns are used for different purposes in each area and each state. It is my opinion that instead of trying to ban guns altogether, the governments should take some time and put some thought into some restrictive policy toward the attainment of firearms. It would be impossible for the government to confiscate all the guns in the United States. Half of the country wouldn't stand for it." ...

"Today, guns that fire hundreds of rounds per second aren't very practical for public use, and if any guns should be outlawed for general use, those should be the ones." ...

"There is a child accidentally killed by a gun every four seconds, so what that says to me is that it is way too easy to get a gun." ...
 

Badnarik Wonders if Bush and Feinstein Know the Meaning of "Infringe"

"While Bush and his staffers have pledged multiple times to sign the bill into law if passed, GOP lawmakers are vowing that it will not be allowed on the House or Senate floor, thus protecting Bush from losing the support of the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA)." ...

"Speaking at a July 4 gun rights rally at Mace Sporting Goods in Mebane, Libertarian presidential candidate Michael Badnarik aimed a few short words at not just Feinstein, but Republicans, as well."

"That Feinstein would use parliamentary procedure to slip in yet another attempt to deprive us of one of our most fundamental individual rights is not surprising. The even scarier issue is that Bush has already promised, in advance, to sign such a bill."

"Clearly, when an issue as major as the Assault Weapons Ban is supported by Feinstein, Schumer, Bush and Warner, it is yet another indication that both of the major parties are, in fact, the same."
 

Alan Gottlieb and Dave Workman: Can you trust liberals willing to sell out principles

"An intriguing phenomenon is at work right now in Canada and the United States, where political liberals are demonstrating a remarkable willingness to turn their backs on what once seemed an unshakable principle, simply in the interest of winning re-election and assuring their political survival."

"It appears these politicians have suddenly realized what a pity it would be for them to have to find real jobs, so in Canada and here in the states, they've decided that it is the smart thing to be against gun control."

"North of the border, Canadian Liberals, according to Reuters, are scrambling to avoid defeat in the June 28 election so Prime Minister Paul Martin is promising to modify that nation's gun registration law. His Liberal colleagues have discovered, the news agency said, that gun registration is a 'vote loser.' Martin told a Canadian newspaper he is willing to consider abolishing criminal penalties for citizens who refuse to register their firearms. How long that promise will hold water is anyone's guess."

"After all, if a Liberal is willing to turn his back on a principle, just how hard is it for a Liberal to break a promise?"

"Having run on the Republican ticket for Congress, I got a first hand look into the machine and it sickened me. The central committee honchos weren't the least bit interested in the law, the Constitution or what was right, only 'win at all costs.' A pernicious course that is hastening the death of this Republic. ..." ...

"The text of the Patriot Act was not given to members of Congress until it was time to vote. What did the so-called leadership of the Republican controlled Congress do when presented with such an immoral decision - voting on legislation they haven't read? They caved, voted and the backlash has been unprecedented. ..."

"The Republican leadership in the House has bottled up the bill extending the 10-year-old assault-weapons ban. But President Bush will bear part of the blame if nothing is done." ...

"But the answer is to tighten and to expand the law, along the lines of California's smartly effective 5-year-old assault-weapons ban, and not to return to the days when a wannabe drug dealer or cop killer could buy an Uzi at a local gun shop."

"Ever since prescription painkillers such as OxyContin became the drugs of choice among dealers and addicts in Appalachia, the days of small-town pharmacists dispensing medicines from behind an ordinary counter have become a quaint memory." ...

"Jackson pharmacist Everett Dunaway has armed himself. The weapon came in handy when a man walked into the Family Pharmacy with a shotgun under his long coat and demanded drugs. When Dunaway pulled his own gun, the would-be robber fled."

" 'It's at times a dangerous profession,' Dunaway said. 'Anything to do with drugs can be dangerous. You have to take precautions.' "

"It should take at least a month for investigators to decide whether they will charge robbery victim Brad Beck with shooting bystander Alearria Denmark outside a South Florida Avenue photography studio Tuesday morning, Lakeland police said."

"Denmark, 47, was driving a van on Lenox Street when she was struck by one of 17 bullets fired by Beck as he chased robbery suspect Darrell Logan, who police say was attempting to force his way into Denmark's van."

"Just moments before Beck wounded Denmark, Logan had robbed Beck and then shot him in the forehead inside Phillips' Photographers, where Beck works, police said."

"A TERRIFIED shop manager tried to hamper an armed robber’s getaway by weighing him down with loose change."

"Spar shop manager Christine Boyle thought the thief was joking when he first came in brandishing a gun and demanding she hand over cash."

"But the 51-year-old soon realised he was deadly serious when he pointed the gun at her head and ordered her to empty the safe at the shop in Livingston."

"Despite her terror, Mrs Boyle was still able to think on her feet and deliberately loaded down the robber with loose change in an effort to frustrate his getaway."

"Her courage and quick thinking today led to her being hailed a hero by her bosses."

"In Hernando County, there were no fireworks Sunday, but that doesn't mean it was quiet. Several hundred spectators showed up at the Hernando Sportsman's Club's annual machine gun shoot. They looked on as about 60 shooters peppered junk cars and demolished targets bearing the image of Osama bin Laden. 'It's a pretty awesome sight to see,' said Nick Olsen of Tampa, who came to watch one of the largest machine gun exhibitions in the state. 'This is the Second Amendment in action.' "

Tell us again how the police will protect us, Mrs. Brady. Tell us again how we don't need tools of self defense. This woman is dead because she heeded your advice - yours and others like you, who claim that it's better to rely on police to protect you than to take responsibility for your own safety. Her blood and the blood of many others are partially on your hands. Think about that next time you do another multi-thousand dollar speaking engagement on the evil of guns.

"At the very least, we know that more than 10,000 guns, approximately 58 per cent of which were illegal, will not fire again."

"On Saturday, these guns, some of which were old rejects of the Jamaica Defence Force, were placed in a furnace at Caribbean Castings and melted." ...

"Indeed, the majority of the nearly 1000 murders committed in Jamaica each year is with guns. Access to firearms is, therefore, a matter of concern for all law-abiding citizens. In that regard, we welcome actions by the security forces to destroy confiscated guns that are in their position."

South Africa: How do you prove the 'need' for a firearm? (Letter)

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Why is it that whenever the Firearms Control Act is under discussion, the most important sections, promoting nothing less than human rights abuses, are ignored?

Under-21s will not be able to defend their families.

One needs to prove "need" for a firearm to persuade the authorities to issue you with a licence. How on earth does one do this?


Searches and seizures may take place without a warrant, not only by the police, but by "a person authorised by the National Commissioner".

When charged with an offence, in terms of this law, you will be presumed guilty until proven innocent.

Why these abuses of power?

"The head of the Boston Public Library said he doesn't believe in government spying on the reading and research habits of library patrons, and would consider breaking the Patriot Act if asked to disclose such information."

"Specifically, Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act allows the FBI to ask for private information about library patrons. The act is a tool of government in the fight against terrorism that was enacted in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, and violators of the statute run the risk of federal prosecution."

" 'I can say without equivocation that the Boston Public Library has received no requests under Section 215,' said Bernard Margolis, president of the BPL since 1997. ..."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There are other things so clearly out of the power of Congress, that the bare recital of them is sufficient, I mean the "...rights of bearing arms for defence, or for killing game..." These things seem to have been inserted among their objections, merely to induce the ignorant to believe that Congress would have a power over such objects and to infer from their being refused a place in the Constitution, their intention to exercise that power to the oppression of the people. —ALEXANDER WHITE (1787)
