"Television and print ads are filled with images of Democrat presidential nominee John Kerry as a gunslinger."

"Whether it is a picture of him toting an M-16 assault rifle in Vietnam, or whether he's armed with a shotgun playing the avid hunter in Rural Somewhere, U.S.A., this is one Democrat who isn't afraid to lock and load."

"But what's all this gunplay about? Left-wing Democrats aren't known for their love of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. And although Kerry hasn't been the biggest foe of gun rights, he hasn't been a friend either." ...

"Poll after poll finds that Americans overwhelmingly support lifting President Bush's constricted stem-cell research policy and renewing the expiring federal assault gun ban. Yet the president's reelection game plan is trumping the desires of most Americans and, apparently, a majority in Congress."

"Bills that would accomplish both critical goals are stalled. Congressional leaders, taking their cue from a president anxious to please a loyal minority of hard-right voters, refuse to schedule votes." ...

"They are playing the same cynical game on assault guns. A poll released last month found nearly 80% of Americans support renewing the 10-year-old ban on the manufacture and sale of certain semiautomatic assault guns. That ban expires Sept. 13. Even a majority of gun owners have told pollsters they think the ban on such murderous weapons makes sense."
-------

The classic bait and switch. In the polls I have seen, the term "semi-automatic" was not used.
 

Extend the ban -- Assault weapons are only for people-hunters

"PRESIDENT BUSH says he favors legislation to extend the 1994 assault-weapons ban, which will expire Sept. 13 unless Congress acts. He isn't, however, planning to encourage congressional action because gun issues pose an election-year minefield for some of his friends in the House and Senate."

"That is surely a fence-sitting position if there ever was one. The assault weapons that fall under the ban are not for hunting or personal protection. They are for the efficient, aggressive killing of human beings. They are military weapons. Sportsmen and those who own firearms for self-defense need them about like they need bazookas." ...

If these weapons are only for efficiently killing people, then why are the issued to police patrol officers???

"As John Thompson considers improvements to the Brandywine Hundred Rod and Gun Club near Port Penn, he says he can rest a little easier knowing its outdoor shooting ranges now are safe from nuisance lawsuits."

"Under a law signed last month by Gov. Ruth Ann Minner, the state's existing outdoor shooting ranges can't be sued by new suburban neighbors who are annoyed by gunfire. The law also prohibits county and municipal governments from bowing to pressure and writing nuisance control laws that could put the ranges out of business." ...

"According to police, two young men were the victims of an apparent home invasion, by two other young men armed with guns."

"The victims inside the home had guns of their own and shot at the two intruders injuring one of them. One injured man made his way to an Aurora hospital later in the day. The other suspect is presumably on the loose."

I'll vote for Michael Badnarik, the principled Libertarian who really would work to repeal the income tax, re-legalize guns and drugs, and restore to us the smaller, limited constitutional government the founders promised."

"The major networks won't even announce Mr. Badnarik's single-digit vote totals on election night.

"From a distance, it could have been any old catcher's mitt, yet it was on a shelf among the rifles, shotguns, swords and military memorabilia at the North Eastcoast Arms Collectors Associates gun show on Sunday. The price: $475."

"The name on the mitt wasn't Wilson or Rawlings or even Spalding. It read Winchester, the same company that manufactured 'The Gun That Won The West.' For about a decade after the end of World War I, the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. also was in the hardware and sporting goods business." ...

"Last year the teen won a record $24 million judgment against Bryco Arms, its distribution arm and its owner. Bryco was forced into bankruptcy, and on Thursday, a federal judge in Florida will auction off 75,600 unassembled guns and other remaining assets."

"Maxfield hopes to buy the inventory, melt it down and create a sculpture from the metal. It is tempting to see divine retribution in such a scheme, but the teen and his lawyer, Richard Ruggieri, insist revenge is not their motivation — they simply want to make sure no one else is hurt." ...

Two Mexicans from a "Most Wanted" list released to great fanfare by the government last week have already been tracked down -- in jail.

Alfredo Cervantes Ramirez, also known as "The Bullet-swallower," and Alvaro Dario de Leon Valdes were withdrawn from the list after officials discovered they were already in prison, the Mexico City prosecutor's office said on Saturday.

The state prosecutor's office put out a statement saying it "recognizes and values the unmatched cooperation of the citizens and authorities of the country ... which allowed us to locate these two dangerous evil-doers, who are already in jail."

"A Ramsey County judge said this morning he will decide soon whether Minnesota’s conceal-carry handgun permit law should remain in effect while its constitutionality is argued on appeal."

"District Judge John T. Finley said in a written decision after a morning hearing in St. Paul that the decision would come soon, but he did not specify when."

"Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch asked for the stay last month after Finley ruled that the Legislature approved the conceal-carry law in violation of the state constitution."

"Hatch wants Finley to let the new law stand while he appeals Finley’s ruling to a higher court. If Finley declines, Minnesota’s old permit law would remain in effect in the meantime." ...
-------

Under the old law the only training required was a hunter safety course, there was no prohibition on carrying while intoxicated, permit holders could carry in schools and day care centers, certain felons and violent misdemeanants could get permits . . . I don't think the Honorable Judge Finley thought this through.

"Police are urging adults to pay more attention to gun safety after four children were accidentally shot, three fatally, in the Charlottesville area in the past year." ...

"'Adults need to be responsible for keeping weapons out of children's' reach,' said Albemarle Lt. Earl Newton. 'You can't emphasize enough the responsibility of gun owners.'"

[WRONG! Parents need to teach their children basic gun safety!]

"City police Capt. B.A. Bibb urges gun owners to keep their firearms locked up and well hidden. Many police departments and sheriff's offices give away gun locks. Newton said if people aren't going to use a lock, they should unload the gun and keep the ammunition and weapon in separate locations."

"'I know people have concerns about their safety,' Newton said. 'But to have a weapon sitting around loaded all the time is not necessary.'"

So does Officer Newton keep his duty weapon sitting around unloaded, with the ammunition in a separate location?

From the coast to the desert, from blacktails to big mule deer to wily northeast whitetails, Oregon's hunters have a difficult choice when they get the new synopsis at the start of each year. With all of the options available, how does a hunter decide? Information is the key, and Washington-Oregon Game & Fish magazine knows where to find it. While you pursued spring turkeys and opening-day trout fishing jaunts, and right into early summer, we were gathering data, interviewing successful hunters, outfitters and wildlife biologists to get a glimpse of the coming deer hunting seasons." ...

It is still possible to purchase a general-season deer license over the counter, and except for a handful of units, a hunter can choose to hunt any region of the state in any given year. Those who want solitude and the chance of seeing older, branch-antlered bucks have the option of applying for permit hunts, which greatly increase their odds of success. With an extensive network of wilderness areas and gated forest roads, hunters willing to put some boot leather between themselves and their vehicle can also enjoy an old-time wilderness hunt." ...

"Drought, wildfires, predation by mountain lions, increased hunting pressure and habitat loss due to urban sprawl along the eastern foothills - known as the Front Range - nothing seems to put a dent in a burgeoning elk population that remains the largest in North America."

"Although hunters killed a record 61,174 elk in 2002, Colorado still had more than 300,000 elk as it entered the 2003 season, about a third more than biologists believe the range can support. ..." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. — Alexis de Tocqueville
