"When grizzled gun dealers gathered for their big annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas in January, they found themselves rubbing holsters with a decidedly different demographic: people who play and profit from the booming sport of paintball."

"Experiencing sluggish sales, largely because hunters represent an aging demographic, the $2 billion-a-year gun industry has launched bolder marketing pitches to attract novices into the world of weaponry. Gun makers see potential growth in the self-defense, security and target-shooting markets, and the young, edgy, camouflage-clad Gen Y crowd is squarely in the cross hairs."

"Unlike X-ray machines or radar instruments, the sensor doesn't have to generate a signal to detect objects – it spots them based on how brightly they reflect the natural radiation that is all around us every day."

"There is always a certain amount of radiation – light, heat, and even microwaves – in the environment. Every object – the human body, a gun or knife, or an asphalt runway – reflects this ambient radiation differently."

"In one of the most disgraceful actions since I have become a senator, the U.S. Senate passed legislation that provides special immunity from liability for negligence to American gun manufacturers and dealers."

"The legislation has absolutely nothing to do with protecting Americans' Second Amendment rights, which I fully support."

"Instead, this bill would provide a special exception from the laws regarding negligence of 50 states and the federal government that apply to every other manufacturer and seller of every other consumer product in America. ..."

"Law-abiding Washington State firearms owners will not forget the series of anti-gun votes cast by Sen. Maria Cantwell during debate of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, passed by the Senate Friday afternoon, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) predicted."

"Senator Cantwell has demonstrated that, despite her rhetoric about supporting the rights of law-abiding American gun owners, she only talks the talk, she does not walk the walk... Evergreen State gun owners will remember her votes against the gun industry, and ultimately their right to keep and bear arms, when she is up for election in 2006."

"By any standard, S. 397 is common-sense legislation. Let's think about it for a second but remove firearms from the equation. We'll substitute some other products. Do you believe that Ford Motor Co. should be dragged into court to be held responsible for damage to life and limb caused by drunk drivers? Do you believe that Callaway Golf should be held accountable because someone was assaulted with one of that company's Big Bertha irons? Of course you don't."

"Superimposed over the somber scene are the words,"

"'3-piece suit: $250; new socks: $2; 9mm pistol: $79; gold chain: $400; bullet: $.60. Picking the perfect casket for your son: priceless.'"

"Catching our attention as an advertisement would, the piece sends a pointed message about how violence destroys real lives. By using the credit card campaign as a backdrop, Thomas highlights the status-conscious drive of the assailants who killed Songha over the gold chain. And even if such senseless violence does not often reach us individually, advertising and consumerism are something that reach all of us daily." ...

"Well, OK, it's actually a motion to 'remand with instructions to dismiss or, alternatively, for summary affirmance'. For all practical purposes, it's a motion to deny 2nd Amendment rights to residents of the District of Columbia, but if you've been following the Parker v DC case at all, you already know that."

"This is a very brief motion, and it contains no surprises. The government clearly thinks that Seegars is controlling precedent and that they need only go through the motions of arguing the point here; after all, they will have another opportunity to respond directly to the arguments raised by the Parker attorneys. The government suggests that the case should be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction (following Seegars) or the dismissal of the lower court should be affirmed."

"The strategy of the Parliamentary Front for the Right to Self-Defense is to convince Brazilian voters that banning firearm sales will not alter the situation of violence that prevails in the country. According to the president of the Front, Federal Deputy Alberto Fraga (PFL-DF), the weapons that feed organized crime are sold illegally - while the referendum addresses the population on the matter of legal sales of firearms. 'Eighty-seven percent of the weapons used in crimes are illegal. So why punish a well-meaning citizen who purchased an arm and left his ID number and his address? What is the government's true intention? That's what we want to discuss,' Fraga declared." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
