... "On Mother's Day 2004, the Million Mom March put out the call for another gathering, and 2,500 showed up. What happened to the gun control movement?"

"War, terrorism and jobs have pushed the gun issue off the political radar screen, which is where the Bush administration would like it to stay. But they're not going to get their wish."

"Assault rifles are about to become legal in September when the law banning assault weapons expires. These are the same weapons our troops are trying to take off the streets of Baghdad. In 2000, candidate George W. Bush said he supported the ban. Early in 2004, he said he'd sign an extension of the ban if it reached his desk. That's turned out to be a big if." ...

VA: 'Assault weapons' ban was a poor crime-fighting tool

"You have it exactly backward on the federal 'assault-weapon' ban. You claim it is expiring on Sept. 13 due to 'political pressure' by its opponents ['Extend the ban,' Aug. 9]. To the contrary, federal law requires it to expire."

"The 'political pressure' being waged is by gun prohibitionists who want the ban renewed and expanded, as shown by your high-pressure editorial in which you compare semi-automatic firearms to 'bazookas' and describe people who oppose gun control as 'zealots.'"

"Despite the pressure, the ban isn't being renewed because most in Congress know that it imposed irrational restrictions on law-abiding Americans and did not affect criminals. In fact, the House of Representatives voted to repeal the ban in 1996." ...
 

Gun Control For the Children?

"I am constantly amazed at the emotional highjacking and moral posturing of gun controllers. Gun controllers are lying when they say they have children’s interests at heart; they are merely using children to promote their own goal of civilian disarmament."

"Senator Barbara Boxer sent out an e-mail that I received entitled 'Protecting Our Children.' I have included the text, one paragraph at a time, to better understand the insanity and bigotry of a gun controller’s mind." ...

"This gets to another part of the equation ignored by gun controllers: the cost of not owning a gun for self-defense. Citizens who avoid becoming crime victims often save not only their lives, but their businesses which represent significant contribution to our economy. By virtue of their age and 'occupation,' teenage criminals have contributed nothing. Armed citizens have saved our country billions of dollars in health care, insurance claims, and business infrastructure."

"If you think streets awash in Uzis, AK-47s and other military-style firearms are just what the country needs, then you'll love the game that President George W. Bush and House Republican leaders are playing. They're about to let the 1994 assault-weapons ban slip into the dustbin of history without so much as a vote in the House."

"The law that prohibits the manufacture or distribution of 19 kinds of semiautomatic weapons will sunset on Sept. 13. It should be extended."

"If Bush and his cohorts really want restrictions to lapse on those weapons of war, they should stand up and be counted. ..."

"In calls to the Sheriff's Office, Belanger also described four or five girls screaming outside her house at 1 a.m. and then returning two hours later with at least one guy. They banged on her door, cursed and demanded she return clothes and other belongings."

"As John Kerry worked the rope line by a riverside war memorial in this small Mississippi River town, men and women thrust copies of the same 8x10 glossy into his hands. Dutifully, he scrawled his name with a Sharpie pen. Once, twice, three times. They kept coming."

"The photo wasn't the usual politician's pose. Taken last October at an Iowa farm, it showed Kerry in full hunting regalia with a 12-gauge shotgun in his hands. Among those clutching the pictures were Iowa prison guards, many of them wearing union T-shirts."

"America's political debate over guns is different this year."

"Police Chief Edward Cronin told top state officials Friday there's "a lot of gunplay right now" in Fitchburg, and described his department as ill-equipped to address the city's increasing heroin presence."

"Girls as young as 14 are addicted, and the trend is rising, Cronin told Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey. And he warned her that drugs and related crime is rising in Fitchburg and spilling into neighboring towns."

"'Right now we do not have manpower on the street to at least maintain a level of order,' Cronin told Healey, state Public Safety Secretary Ed Flynn and scores of regional law enforcement officials."

"Cronin noted the federal COPS program, well-funded in the 1990s, 'has disappeared, and we've been abandoned.'"

"If Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine taught us nothing else, it's that American society is proliferated with guns like no other culture in the world. They're generally easy to obtain and a powerful gun lobby consistently keeps itself involved in politics to the point that passing any significant legislature regarding gun control is a virtual impossibility. At one point, school shootings were occurring so frequently that they seemed to be regular items on all the cable news channels."

"We proceed from documentary to fictional portraits of people affected by guns in their lives. American Gun presents a series of interconnected portraits of Americans and explores the way that gun culture has shaped the society that surrounds them. ..." ...

"As chief of the Los Angeles Police Department and a 28-year veteran of law enforcement, I have seen firsthand the death and destruction that can be brought by military-style assault weapons."

"These guns are not necessary for hunting or self-defense, but their light triggers and rapid-fire capability make them weapons of choice for criminals. Congress has only five working days to renew the federal ban on 19 different models of semiautomatic assault weapons. If they fail to do so, these killing machines will soon be rolling off the assembly lines at major gun manufacturers and flying off the shelves of your local gun shop."

Then as Chief of LAPD perhaps you can answer this question: Why do your cops carry these "killing machines" which are not "necessary" for self-defense?

"BOSTON'S RECENT shootings are a reminder that gun violence must be fought at many levels, including by the federal government. But two recent reports found that existing federal laws are not being thoroughly enforced."

"Gun laws are designed to stop people who are legally banned from buying firearms, such as convicted felons, domestic abusers, drug addicts, and others. In reality, the system is frayed and guns fall into the wrong hands."

"Issued last month by the inspector general of the Justice Department, the reports focused on two problems: inadequate inspection of gun dealers and flaws in checking gun buyers' backgrounds." ...

"Despite not being the Republican Party’s anointed 'moderate' for Congress in the 10th Congressional District (Mitchell, Caldwell, Burke, Rutherford, Catawba, Cleveland, Gaston, Lincoln, Iredell), solid pro-gunner Patrick McHenry clawed his way to 2nd place in the 10th district race for the US House."

"McHenry has a 100% voting record and a distinguished history of gun rights leadership in the NC House. McHenry was largely responsible for the clean concealed handgun reciprocity law passed in the 2003 session. This is just the kind of leadership that Patrick McHenry will exert when he is in the US House as well. No matter which district you live in, a win for Patrick McHenry will also be a victory for you and your freedoms!" ...

"In the past six days, Boston police officers have seized 15 weapons as part of the effort to stem the sudden surge of violence in the city. As they have been for 15 years, each of those weapons will get special treatment in a joint effort by police and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, authorities said yesterday."

"Once seized by police, the federal agency will begin the process of learning the weapon's history, starting with the gun maker and working through the chain of ownership in an attempt to learn the identity of the owner before it was used in a crime." ...

"Sarah Brady gave a blunt warning to Delaware residents Friday: Assault weapons are coming back."

"A 10-year-old ban on 19 types of semiautomatic assault weapons expires next month and Rep. Mike Castle, R-Del., said there seems to be little will among congressional leaders to extend it. There's also little time left for Congress to act."

"So Castle, Brady and her husband, Jim, the former White House press secretary severely injured when an assassin targeted President Reagan in 1981, gathered to call attention to the issue. A bill passed during the Clinton administration that required waiting periods and background checks on handguns sold by licensed dealers was named in Brady's honor. About a dozen police officers and Wilmington Mayor James M. Baker joined Friday's gathering."

Prisoners took two officers hostage early Saturday at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail in a failed escape attempt. They released one hostage and two other inmates rescued the other guard, authorities said."

"The unruly prisoners took keys from the officers, unlocked four cell blocks and attempted to recruit collaborators in the escape effort, jail officials said. That plan backfired when two of the freed prisoners - described by one county police detective as 'very large individuals' - saved the last hostage while authorities were trying to negotiate his release." ...

"Police say they are seeing a surge in the number of gang-related attacks involving machetes, the huge knives that are a ubiquitous tool in rural Latin America, with blades as thick as an axe and nearly as long as a sword."

"The troubling trend has led some departments to crack down on machetes, Some suburban communities have also enacted new laws to ban the knives."

"Last month, during a sweep of gang members in Boston, Lynn, Revere, Chelsea, Everett and Somerville, police seized not just machetes, but more exotic weapons, including Chinese throwing stars and a Japanese metal chain whip."

"But machetes, which can be easily obtained at garden stores , are by far the most popular of the alternative weapons." ...

Police say a suspended electrician for Hartford Public Schools returned to offices and pulled out a rifle.

Fifty-three-year-old Gary Gauthier of Wethersfield is facing several charges.

School officials tell The Hartford Courant they discovered him drinking a beer and urinating behind a trash bin early yesterday morning. They say he had been suspended earlier in the week for drinking on the job.

They say he pleaded for his job back. That's when police say he pulled out a Colt A-R-15 semiautomatic assault rifle. The school workers say they tackled him and called police.

Police say the rifle was loaded with 30 rounds and he had more ammunition in his pocket and truck. He was jailed on $750,000 bond.
