Ban on assault weapons didn't reduce violence

"The federal assault-weapons ban, scheduled to expire in September, is not responsible for the nation's steady decline in gun-related violence and its renewal likely will achieve little, according to an independent study commissioned by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ)." ...

"A woman whose husband killed their grandson before then killing himself has suggested a 5-day waiting period for handgun purchases should be extended to include those guns purchased from private sellers."

"Of course 2nd Amendment freaks think that's unconstitutional."

"But then those kind of people think .38 caliber pistols make great baby shower gifts."

"I think changing the law should be a no-brainer, which - given our legislature and the NRA - means that's not likely." ...

"Congress-ional officials expect that the 1994 federal ban on "assault weapons" will expire Sept. 13 although similar legislation passed this year in the Senate, and a bill co-authored by U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays, R-4, awaits consideration in the House."

"Critics of the existing law, enacted during the Clinton Administration, argue that it covers primarily 'cosmetic' aspects of firearms not related to lethality."

"Statistics about the weapons, however, speak for themselves, argued U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-3." ...

Yes, they do. According to the NIJ and the CDC, the ban has had no effect on crime. None. Nada. Zero. Bupkiss.

"'Everyone here wants guns - it's a basic freedom, a basic right,' said Pat Rawlings, a soft-spoken middle aged mother of two, waiting for a hairdresser appointment in this quaint leafy Civil War town.

... "The state Senator from Chicago said he supports the 2nd Amendment rights of hunters and sportsmen to have guns. However, he supports renewal of the assault weapons ban that expires this year. He said the gun control issue needs to be reasonable for the entire state, and in the Chicago area, cheap handguns and other weapons create problems."...

Poster's Note: 1) The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution does not mention hunting or sportshooting. 2) "Reasonable gun control" is an oxymoron. 3) I wasn't aware that an inexpensive firearm (or any "other weapon" for that matter) was any more capable of "creating problems" than a crowbar or baseball bat. 4) Chicago already has some very stringent "reasonable" gun laws. Bah.
 

On 'brandishing'

"The Virginia Citizens Defense League Inc., a Beltway-based Second Amendment group, has complained about the use of "brandishing" in our Aug. 9 editorial 'Extend the ban.'"

"The VCDL points out that the word "brandish" describes a criminal violation under the Virginia Code."

"However, league members were perfectly within their legal rights to wear their guns visibly...In a sense, the VCDL members were exercising not only their Second Amendment rights, but also their First Amendment rights, about which journalists are as zealous as any Smith & Wesson aficionado."
-------

Perhaps this is about as close to a retraction as we could hope for?

KABA wonders how the editors would feel if we changed their sentence slightly from:

"For example, the gun zealots who participated in a recent series of gun-brandishing incidents in Northern Virginia only threaten the rights of those who use and keep their arms responsibly" to

"For example, the integration zealots who participated in a recent series of lunch-counter sharing incidents in Northern Virginia only threaten the rights of those coloreds who use their civil rights responsibly"?

"A few weeks ago in an article titled, 'Conscription, Standing Armies, and Love of Country' I wrote that the Federal Government had outlawed the state militias mentioned in the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This was incorrect. The state militias have been 'nationalized' into the 'National Guard' and are now being used unconstitutionally for foreign occupations. Governors across the country are complaining to the Bush administration that their National Guard units are being depleted for the War in Iraq, and that they do not have enough manpower to handle emergencies in their home states." ...

"Adams had an epiphany on the gun issue while he was still a card carrying PC non-thinker. Some college friends of his were murdered and he had to travel past that spot every day on his way to the job that put him through school.

So there may be that silly side to local implementation of the national Project Safe Neighborhoods program.

"The campaign grew out of Richmond, Va., and its Project Exile, encouraged by gun-rights groups, among others. Richmond's gun-related homicides fell markedly under the program." ...

"Police said the man had been drinking alcohol when he allegedly stabbed a man to death in north Minneapolis about 2:40 a.m. Saturday. Police eventually obtained a court order and had another doctor draw blood about 9 a.m., five hours after the suspect arrived at the hospital, police Capt. Rich Stanek said." ...

A 27-year-old Horry County police officer has been charged with kidnapping and assault.

Horry County Police Chief Johnny Morgan says Bryan David Weich of Garden City has been suspended.

An arrest warrant says Weich entered a Surfside Beach home on August Eleventh with a pistol and woke a man, asking where he could find a woman. An affidavit says Weich made the man drive with him to a motel in Murrells Inlet and that Weich showed his badge to the desk clerk to get information about the woman.

An affidavit says on Sunday, Weich went to a Garden City home where the woman was sleeping, broke into the house, woke her up, forced her to the floor and kicked her repeatedly.

Weich has been with the department for six months.

The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating.

Illinois municipalities have used their home rule license to pass collections of gun laws that can only be described as contradictory and incomprehensible."

Four municipalities have vehicle impoundment and seizure ordinances. For example, an individual driving through Aurora with a BB gun is subject to having his vehicle impounded. In Carol Stream individuals are prohibited from transporting a gun that is enclosed in a case, while state law requires that guns be enclosed in a case!" ...

"THE latter part of the 17th century was a period of enormous growth in the development of the gun trade, as indeed it was for British manufacturing industry generally."

"New trade routes were opening up and the exploration of Africa and the New World generated an insatiable demand for guns by those involved in colonisation and trade."

"Much of this booming industry in weaponry was based in the Birmingham gun trade. Unfortunately, most of it was of extremely poor quality." ...

"A number of responsible Birmingham gunmakers however, expressed their concern at the lack of control over the trade and established their own private proof houses, similar to that which had existed in London since 1637." ...
