"Crime rates go down when offenders must compensate their victims and responsible citizens are permitted to carry concealed weapons. Privatizing police gives them incentive to emphasize prevention and focus on violent, rather than victimless, crimes." [emphasis added]

"Violence seems to be a hallmark of our society. Our homicide rate is higher than most European nations; our children are even gunned down in their schools, often by other students." ...

"Establishment politicians can't stop crime because they haven't asked the tough questions: 'What crime prevention measures actually work?'"

"Only one industrialized nation has succeeded in consistently lowering its crime rates since World War II. ..." ...

"GUNS: How, if at all, should federal gun laws be changed?"

"Sen. John Kerry: I am a gun owner and hunter, and I believe that law-abiding American adults have the right to own guns. But like all of our rights, gun rights come with responsibilities, and those rights allow for reasonable restrictions to keep guns out of the wrong hands. ...'"

"President George Bush: 'Mandatory background checks through the instant check system are essential for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and other prohibited persons. ... I support reauthorizing the current ban on semi-automatic assault weapons. ...'"

Between the two, only President Bush specifically mentions the AWB.

... "The perspective VPC would like to impose upon us is that myriad innocent elderly, youth, and women are dying because of the availability of firearms. But the statistical facts from its own sources prove otherwise, showing significant downward trends in the violent crime VPC uses to push its agenda of civilian disarmament."

"By using emotional appeal to deflect us from scrutinizing shoddy research, one begins to wonder that if the papers written by gun control organizations are so fraught with misinformation, perhaps they are the modern day incarnation of Joseph Goebbels, who understood the importance of telling a big lie often. After all, one of the people gun control worked for during the 20th Century was Hitler. The question we all need to ask is: If gun control has been such a failure here and abroad, why would we want to pursue a policy that only enables criminals, large and small, to benefit?"

"America's most intense gun-control debate in a decade is being played out against the backdrop of presidential politics this summer with the approaching expiration of a 10-year-old ban on assault weapons."

"The ban will expire Sept. 13 unless extended by Congress, and House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, has indicated that he's unlikely to bring it to a vote. President George W. Bush has endorsed an extension of the ban, but he is not actively pushing Congress to take action."

"'It's an uphill battle,' Sarah Brady, one of the nation's leading gun-control advocates, said last week. 'Our streets are going to be filled with AK47s and Uzis.'"

"According to information two policemen — H C Balram Rana and Commando Sukhwinder Singh — signalled scooterists Rajesh and his friend to stop after they rode out of the local college. But when instead of stopping they reportedly accelerated, the commando allegedly hit Rajesh with the butt of his rifle. Rajesh has been admitted to the Civil Hospital while his friend was unhurt." ...

"It arrived Tuesday in Eugene and attracted about a dozen supporters, including Eugene Police Chief Robert Lehner and Rebecca Lynn, whose daughter was shot at Thurston High School in 1998."

"Lynn noted that shooter Kip Kinkel had an illegal magazine of 50 rounds when he shot 27 students, killing two, in less than two minutes."

"NSW Police have outlawed a toy pistol that has a similar appearance to a genuine Glock handgun and has bullets than can travel up to 30 metres."

"Police urged the public to keep the pistol out of circulation, since it could cause serious injury when fired."

"It could also be mistaken for a real weapon and cause 'very serious repercussions' for everyone involved in an incident involving the toy, they said."

"A number of the toy pistols have been located in shops in the Sydney metropolitan area and on the NSW Central Coast, Deputy Commissioner Dave Madden said today." ...

"As the cops and ministers work the streets in Boston, the gun lobby is working the halls of Congress in Washington. The federal assault-weapons ban expires Sept. 13, and President Bush, his campaign rhetoric of four years ago aside, and the Republican Congress are giving every indication that they will pay their debt to the National Rifle Association crowd and let it die a peaceful death. That would mean UZIs and AK-47s could again be flooding the streets for gang members and drug dealers." ...

"Gene Novikoff, who had previous encounters with the animal, suffered a broken rib, bruises and scratches after the four-point buck knocked him down Monday and pummeled him with its front hooves for several minutes."

"The animal became distracted by its own reflection in Novikoff's shiny sport utility vehicle and Novikoff was able to get inside his garage."

"'Thank God I had the car cleaned a couple of weeks ago,' Novikoff said. 'If he hadn't gotten interested in looking at himself, I don't think I would have made it.'" ...

"Gov. Mike Easley on Tuesday quietly signed into law a measure that makes purchasing a handgun in North Carolina easier for people who hold concealed weapons permits."

"The law allows people with a concealed-carry permit to skip the normal approval process when buying a pistol. That process requires a purchase permit from the local sheriff and a background check."

"The bill overwhelmingly passed both houses of the legislature."

"Proponents of the legislation argued that the background check was redundant for concealed permit holders, who already have passed a rigorous vetting process that includes a federal criminal history check and weapons training." ...
