Liberty, Safety & The Second Amendment

"Gun-banners have a concocted a wildly ridiculous view that people everywhere are at risk of being shot either accidentally, on purpose by some crazed lunatic, or spontaneously at the site of a traffic accident. In the gun-banners' world, the mere presence of a firearm puts everyone at risk and therefore violates our (nonexistent) right to feel safe from firearm danger everywhere."

"This is insane, of course. From the birth of this nation to present day, the firearm is the ultimate symbol of freedom AND safety. It is the firearm that enabled us to win independence from the tyrannical King of England. In 1941, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto is quoted as saying, 'You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.' There is no telling how many other tyrants have been deterred by our formidable military and armed populace. Clearly only a madman with a death wish would dare attack the United States."

"Do I think there are villains around every corner waiting to pounce? Certainly not. To quote the Boy Scout motto, my intent is only to 'be prepared.' "

"I carry a spare tire in my car, have emergency supplies at home, and always wear my seatbelt, all so that I will be prepared. I have used my spare tire twice, never used the emergency supplies and found my seatbelt's restraints necessary only once. So why do I still maintain all those safeguards? Because I know that when I do need them, I'll need them desperately."

"For me, a handgun is much the same - a safeguard. I carry it and train with it just in case I ever need it."
 

Guns are equalizer for self-defense (Letter)

"Ms. Matthews advocates gun control as a solution but apparently doesn’t realize that we already have gun control and do not have as she puts it 'the unfettered right to buy and sell guns.' ...Probably what she is advocating is not gun control, which we have, but gun elimination. That has been tried in England and Australia with disastrous results."

"Ms. Matthews may be young and strong and skilled in martial arts to the point where she feels capable of defending herself against some thug twice her size who is armed with a gun or knife. However, as an old man who is no longer the athlete that I never was I prefer to protect myself with an 'equalizer.' "

"The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a last-minute appeal by "Ten Commandment's judge" Roy Moore to avoid a federal judge's midnight deadline to remove his display of the Decalogue from an Alabama judicial building."

"The justices said late this afternoon they would not be drawn into the dispute, at least for now, which centers on whether the monument violates the Constitution's First Amendment ban on establishment of religion, the Associated Press reported."

"Defenders of Moore held a candlelight vigil just after midnight, launching a round-the-clock protest as the deadline loomed for the federal court order."

"Attorney General John Ashcroft claims that Patriot I has saved the country from additional September 11-style attacks, and that we should have passed it before the attack. When the bill was still before the Congress, Ashcroft was asked by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) which of the new powers being given the federal government would have helped ward off September 11. Ashcroft answered that none would have."

"If Patriot II had been law of the land when Deacons for Defense were using guns to defend civil rights workers in the 1960's, they would have been declared a terrorist organization. As such they could have been arrested without charges, entitled to no lawyer, and kept incommunicado as long as the government chose..."

"How much of a right to deceive the public do government officials deserve in the name of anti-terrorism? None of the false statements about library searches have anything to do with preserving national security -- only with protecting the image of the Justice Department and FBI. There is no need to give federal agents an unlimited right to rummage in Americans' lives in order to stop further al-Qaida attacks."
 

The Militia Threat Is Real
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"One of the most widely held beliefs of militia members is that the federal government is a co-conspirator with the United Nations, where the ultimate plan is to usurp sovereignty from Americans and thus effect international takeover of the country. Hence, militia members are almost always strict adherents to the Constitution, and oppose just about any government restriction that threatens individual rights. And nothing is more important to the militia movement than the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms." ...

"While Capt. Snow is careful to admit that not all militia members prescribe to some of the more desperate and radical views that lead to tragic events like Columbine, Waco or Oklahoma City, he indirectly makes the case for profiling as a means of law enforcement. Most militia members are law-abiding citizens; many are people who believe the federal government exercises too much authority over us, but they have no ambition to wreak havoc over the lives of others."

"HAMILTON: Fellow citizens, it really disturbs us to see how you're letting your government buffalo you. When your president plays Monarch and sends more soldiers overseas, or when congress is about to pass a bad law, or when 'security' takes more and more of your rights away, you just sit back and let it happen. In our day, we did something about that. What are you doing about it in your day?"

"JEFFERSON: Maybe the government has you so scared you're afraid to speak out. Or you're afraid you'll be called unpatriotic, a spoiler, or even a traitor. In case you forgot what we told you, here it is again: 'Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.' Remember that. It will help you take back your country. Goodbye and good luck."

"Liberty - freedom if you will - is a simple concept to understand. The meaning is that one is free from restriction and control. It means the right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one's own choosing. It means the condition of being physically and legally free from confinement, servitude, or forced labor. It means freedom from unjust and undue government control. It means a right or immunity to engage in certain actions without control or interference - the liberties provided by the Bill of Rights."

"I.e., we may do anything we wish as long as we do not injure another or damage his property. What could be simpler?"

"The state attorney general's office says those with concealed weapons permits can carry handguns into any city park in Arkansas, unless the park acts to ban them."

"Attorney General Mike Beebe was asked to clarify the new state law allowing permit holders to carry concealed weapons into parks and restaurants. North Little Rock city attorney Paul Suskie questioned whether Arkansas criminal code already prohibits firearms in city parks."

"A new law that took effect in mid-July makes concealed weapons permissible in parks and restaurants, but gives cities the ability to ban them. The attorney general's opinion says the new law's provisions prevail."

"Sgt. Vern Warnke called Gray 'a one-man crime spree' and noted escalating violence in his crimes." ...

"A search of the apartment turned up a stolen loaded .22-caliber pistol and other items that filled several shopping bags, authorities said. They reported the recovery of jewelry, watches, cameras, coins, guns and a night-vision scope."

Note that even with the stringent gun control laws in California, this "one man crime spree" was still able to get firearms, rendering all their precautions, background checks and waiting periods useless.

"After striking a deal over contentious security safeguards, embattled Gov. Gray Davis has offered unqualified support for divisive legislation that would give illegal immigrants the right to drive."

"While the measure targets the state’s burgeoning immigrant population, many Californians — regardless of citizenship or immigration status — could be affected."

"The compromise would require every applicant for a driver’s license to submit to a technologically advanced identification system to ensure the name matches the fingerprint."

"License fees, now $12, could double to raise the approximately $70 million for the Department of Motor Vehicles to move toward biometric fingerprinting."

"In fact, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted the only checks of gun dealers in Colorado last year."

The written policy is similar to one issued in October 1992. It was sent to District Attorney Joe Olt, advising him that he must use security lockers provided for firearms and knives."

"A local man is on a mission to get part of the new conceal and carry law thrown out. Bruce Krafft feels it violates his constitutional rights when shopping malls ban guns from their premises."

"Krafft has a permit to carry a gun. He's carried his guns in full view on visits to two local malls in the past several weeks, hoping to get a chance to test the new law in court."

"Krafft showed up at the Mall of America carrying two guns recently. Concerned shoppers contacted Mall security and he was handcuffed by police. After verifying that he had a permit to carry a gun, they let him go."

The law clearly prohibits malls from banning, I just want the police to enforce the law, I don't want it changed.

"When the Minnesota State Fair opens Thursday, visitors will see signs at entrances banning guns from the fairgrounds. Fair officials say the ban on guns has been in place for decades, and makes practical sense. Gun rights advocates say the fair has no legal authority under Minnesota's new concealed carry law to prevent permit-holders from bringing handguns to the fair. They say if the fair goes ahead, it'll likely face a lawsuit."

"Minnesota State Fair Director Jerry Hammer says it makes no more sense to allow guns at the fair than it does to allow archers to shoot arrows on the midway."

-------
The only problem with that disingenuous comparison is that allowing law abiding citizens to carry their guns is not the same as allowing them to shoot them on the midway, rendering the comparison to archers shooting arrows moot and irrelevant.

"While some city workers struggled to protect New Yorkers in the midst of the blackout, a city traffic agent wrote summonses even as private citizens directed traffic at a busy intersection yards away."

"About a half-hour into Thursday's power outage, Dr. Robert Richter and two other New Yorkers took it upon themselves to ease the traffic jam at West 79th Street and Amsterdam Avenue."

"Then, 15 minutes later, an NYPD traffic-enforcement car rolled up, but instead of directing traffic, the agent tagged a pair of cars on West 79th Street, Richter said." ...

"...a picture showing the agent writing a summons - with Richter directing traffic in the background - was worth considerably less than 1,000 words to a Police Department spokesman."

"The spokesman said the department would not comment unless they saw a copy of the summons."

"He also declined to check whether any summonses were issued after the blackout began."
