"An effort is under way to establish a firm schedule for updating the state's roster of approved firearms, a move that would reduce the time it takes for some handguns to get from manufacturers to buyers."

"Just this week seven weapons were added to the roster, including three made by Smith & Wesson in Springfield, bringing the total number of firearms on the list to 379."

"The Aurora Gun Club took aim Friday at Denver over the city's legal battle with the state over two new gun laws."

"And it took a little shot at Attorney General Ken Salazar as well as the club filed a motion in Denver District Court to intervene in the dispute. It said it has allocated up to $25,000 for legal costs."

"Jim Winchester, an Aurora Gun Club board member, said the group intervened in part because members are concerned about whether Attorney General Ken Salazar's office would defend the state laws adequately."

"Council members voted only a few months ago to allow people to carry weapons openly in city parks and public buildings. Now they're poised to vote on Tuesday to reinstate the bans in City Hall and other city buildings." ...

"Even council members who identify themselves as gun rights supporters are planning to vote in favor of the ban."

" 'Democrats, who believe that their calls for gun controls might have cost them the White House in 2000, are less willing to take on the gun lobby. Polls suggest that public fears about terrorism have helped mute the debate,' reports USA Today."

Massachusetts residents protest the recent hike in Firearms Identification Card (FID) fees from $25 to $100 and the ludicrous requirement that forces women to obtain a FID card in order to carry self-defense sprays.

It's important for the rest of the nation to realize what happens when the anti-gun movement gains political control even for a brief moment in any state.
 

OH: Words above Deeds? Sen. Doug White says 'I want a [CCW] bill.'

"Senate President Doug White told Gongwer Thursday he hopes the House and Governor Bob Taft can reach agreement on a stalled measure that would allow licensed Ohioans to carry concealed weapons 'because I want a bill.' "

"The legislation (HB 12) was left pending when the General Assembly recessed in June for the summer. Negotiations collapsed when the House and Mr. Taft's office could not reach agreement on affirmative defense and other provisions. (Actually, negotiations stalled when Sen. White refused to appoint conferees to a committee, as proper legislative procedure requires.)"
 

OH: National F.O.P. President says CCW saves lives

"Ohio Highway Patrol Superintendent Paul McClellan opposes HB12, claiming that 'there is no statistical or anecdotal evidence which supports that concealment and transportation of a weapon in a motor vehicle is effective or safe as a defensive or deterrent measure.' "

"But Chuck Canterbury, president of the National F.O.P., knows better."

"While speaking at the F.O.P.'s 56th Biennial National Conference last week, Canterbury called for passage of a national concealed carry bill, 'which would allow the 750,000 or so police officers outside their jurisdictions to carry guns.' "

" 'There are a number of cases', said Canterbury, 'of police officers, outside of their jurisdictions, saving citizens' lives.' "

"Isn't it interesting that when it comes to securing self-defense eights for it's members, the F.O.P. is very suddenly very interested in quoting real-life examples of lives being saved by a person with a concealed firearm?"

"All it would take is a willing mind and a powerful explosive to turn Contra Costa's hulking oil refineries into giant chemical bombs."

"In an age of terrorism and readily available weapons, neither prospect can be completely discounted."

"So Contra Costa supervisors are scheduled Tuesday to take aim at a readily available gun they say presents just such a threat. The board is expected to ask county attorneys to draft an ordinance that would ban the sale of .50-caliber BMG rifles in unincorporated areas."

This is yet another disingenuous attempt to link the power of the firearm with terrorism.

"The world's longest yard sale had some unexpected and unwanted visitors Thursday when more than a dozen agents from the state's revenue department distributed notices and permits to several vendors. The actions of the agents, the first such attempt to collect taxes on the huge yard sale in its 17-year history, did not go over well with merchants or supporters of the weeklong event, scheduled to end Sunday." ...

"David Lillehaug's commentary, 'Stumbling on surprises in the new gun bill' surprises me, considering he is a lawyer and I am not. I especially love his ending comment about how supporters of the bill refused to allow free debate. This after years of trying to get the DFL-run Senate to stop tying up the bill in committee and allow a free vote, and also after the longest debate on the Senate floor in recent history. It was debated beyond the point of being ridiculous and was finally voted on." ...

"I could go on, but to what end? Lillehaug's grave concern is based on a firearms phobia. Pick any law and someone can find fault with it. No law is perfect, but this one goes a long way toward being very workable and addressing everyone's concerns."

"Surely, there's no sane person who isn't horrified by criminal shootings."

"But there's one teensy-weensy piece of information Hizzoner, the judge and all the other gun-control advocates are forgetting: Responsibility for a shooting lies with the shooter - not with the gun or its maker."

"Indeed, New York already has one of the strongest gun-control laws in the nation - and the NYPD has an exemplary record in confiscating illegal guns."

"Still, it's not possible to stop every maniac from getting his hands on a gun."

"Once, he was simply Gary K. Thorne, a neighbor who lived with his mother until she died, lavished care on his garden and treated a neighbor's cat as his own. Then Thorne withdrew from the world. He boarded up the windows. Even his house seemed to be shrinking behind a tangle of weeds."

"After a while, no one saw him much at all, except when he flung open his front door to rant about kids playing basketball in the driveway across the street. And then, according to neighbors and police, he made some ominous remarks about the guns he owned."

"That was enough for the Montgomery County Firearms Task Force, a multi-agency unit formed this year to take guns away from people who shouldn't have them.

"Two recent Wisconsin Supreme Court decisions have renewed debate on Wisconsin’s 130-year-old law that bans carrying concealed weapons."

"At the heart of the debate is who can and should be responsible for our safety and security. Do citizens have a right to carry a gun under their jacket, in their pocket, to keep themselves safe? Or do the risks of that action outweigh the right?"

"The decisions on concealed carry will impact the way some local agencies do business, but others say it will have little impact on their jobs. Of bigger concern, some said, is the possibility of a concealed carry law that allows citizens to carry concealed weapons almost anywhere."

"But let's say you're lucky. You've somehow managed to keep your house. And you're cozied up snug and warm in your bed. It's after midnight. You don't know there's a dozen very large men gathered on your front lawn, trampling your petunias. They're festooned in paramilitary Kevlar from jackboot to tinted helmet visor and they're stoned on adrenaline and testosterone. They bash in your door with a custom door basher. They scream letters from a Post Alpha-Bits cereal box like 'FBI!' and 'DEA!' and 'BATF!' and challenge you to the children's tag game of 'Freeze!' They point muzzles of seriously lethal weaponry in your face. They drag you out of bed, dressed only in your boxer shorts with the little red hearts and cupids, and cuff your wrists behind your back. Then they spend the next three hours ransacking your house from soap dish to breadbox. Eventually, someone with keys and bad breath removes your handcuffs with a muttered, 'Oops, wrong house.' "
