Kerry Reshapes Agenda for Gun-Control Lobby
Submitted by: medicdave

"Sen. John Kerry's desire to be viewed as a gun-toting Democrat has left the gun-control lobby noticeably silent during the 2004 presidential campaign..."

"The Brady Campaign's Ramsey didn't dispute Kerry's voting record. After all, Kerry has consistently received a 100 percent rating from the group."

" 'I don't think Kerry is trying to be someone he's not. That's part of his persona; he goes hunting. He is an excellent shot,' Ramsey said. 'I think he also has not hidden the fact that he believes in gun violence prevention and has voted that way every time he's had a chance to.' "

2) 17 of 25 birds in a trap match does not make you an "excellent shot".
 

Kennedy Now Knows How Gun Owners Feel When Fouled by NICS Delays, Says CCRKBA

"Ted Kennedy wonders how 'average Americans' who are getting caught up in homeland security checks can be treated fairly and not have their rights abused... He might well have wondered the same thing about the National Instant Check System before he helped push that legislation through Congress... but because background checks for gun buyers at the time didn't infringe on his rights, he was only too happy to promote that anti-gun hysteria."

"Now Kennedy has discovered how it feels to have some government agent detain him because his name is similar to some other name on a computer... This is the kind of affront to which law-abiding citizens are subjected to every day simply because they want to exercise a constitutional right ..."

"As a spokesman for Gun Owners of America, I frequently hear the same questions over and over again."

"One of the more common queries is this: 'Considering all the evidence that gun control has failed, why doesn't the Brady Bunch realize the error of their ways?' "

"It's a good question. After all, the evidence that gun control laws have done nothing to curb crime is astounding."

"Cities like Washington, DC and Chicago duke it out every year for the dubious "honor" of being the nation's Murder Capital."

"Both cities have draconian gun bans. Both cities have made it difficult to defend oneself with a firearm. And yet, both cities still find it impossible to keep bad guys from carrying firearms."

"Go figure."

"We recently took the safety course required to obtain a 'concealed-carry' permit for a handgun. As residents of the District of Columbia we cannot even legally own a bullet without registering it, and handguns are completely illegal. Yet, since we believe in the Second Amendment, we wanted to have first hand facts." ...

"...The class stressed that one shouldn't handle guns when drinking or even when fatigued. Those who can legally carry deadly force are that much more aware of the consequences of making stupid mistakes, in every aspect of their lives. Such an increased awareness and alertness would make the world a safer place if more people adopted it."

"...My question is why are people claiming protection under the 1st Amendment labeled as 'responsible journalists', while those claiming 2nd Amendment protections (are) '2nd Amendment freaks?' "

"Here you go again, taking pot shots at guns...There are...people who (also) use cars or hammers to kill. (So) maybe we need more hammer and car control." ...

"I have a .38 and every once in a while it follows me around the room. Once in a while, it hammers back, like it wants to shoot me, and even pulls its own trigger. Thank God there are no humans around to put bullets in it!"
 

Should Christians carry guns?

"What would you do if armed terrorists broke into your church and starting attacking you, your family and friends in the middle of a worship service? The man who fought back with his concealed handgun during just such a terrorist attack on his church wrote an incredible book about the experience."

"Instinctively, I knelt down behind the bench in front of me and pulled out my .38 special snub-nosed revolver, which I always carried with me. I would have felt undressed without it. Many people could not understand why I would carry a firearm into a church service, but I argued that this was a particularly dangerous time in South Africa "

Effective self defense has since been outlawed in South Africa.

"Flanked by local and national gun safety advocates, Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall on Thursday called on concerned citizens and President Bush to 'forcefully demand' that Congress renew the ban on assault weapons, set to expire next month."

"The 1994 law banned the manufacture and sale of semiautomatic assault weapons and ammunition clips holding more than 10 rounds, except for police and military use. The bill bans by name 19 different firearms, as well as copies or duplicates of those."

"As Congress readies for its fall recess, pressure for action to reauthorize the ban is mounting. LaWall joined with the Million Mom March organization and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence for a press conference ..."

"Koe's high-powered rifle was out of bullets when he charged Anderson, slammed his rifle against the gunman, then killed him with his handgun, according to a preliminary police inquiry."

"Police said Anderson, who had also emptied his SKS assault rifle, had reached for his own pistol at the same time."

-------
Notice that the policeman's weapon was a "high powered rifle." But the "gun nut's" weapon of choice - an SKS - was an "assault" rifle, which wasn't even included in the 1994 ban.

"Kenneth Anderson is the gunman responsible for killing Officer Jake Laird and wounding four other police officers Wednesday morning. Anderson also killed his mother.

"KNOW what's scarier than a toy handgun? Cops shooting children who play with the real-looking replicas and legislators like Assemblyman Dennis Mountjoy, R-Monrovia, whose child acted like the kid he is when it came to the toys." ...

"We see no sense in the legislation overwhelmingly approved by the Assembly Wednesday that would ban toy guns in public and in the front yards of private residences...."

"This kind of action only makes sense against the paramilitary law-enforcement attitude that condones shooting through the window of a home and killing a man holding a toy gun during a Halloween party, as did Los Angeles Police in a 2000 incident."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The Farmington Police Department has destroyed 114 pistols, rifles, and other firearms seized in recent years or turned in by residents who wanted them destroyed.

The guns were destroyed Thursday under a court order.

Its been about four years since the Farmington police last destroyed guns from its evidence unit.

The guns were cut up by Farmington welder Rocky Ellis. He used a cutting torch to ensure none of the parts could be refurbished.

He split the barrels, melted the pins, and destroyed the serial numbers.

Police Captain Bob Bussey says the city used to auction off guns no longer needed as evidence.

But he says Farmington didnt want to put confiscated weapons back on the street.

"A GLASGOW police chief today warned that anyone who brandishes a toy gun or replica weapon at police could end up being shot dead."

"Assistant Chief Constable Ricky Gray made the grim warning as he showed how some fake guns are almost identical to real ones."

"He showed a replica gun, a blank-firing weapon and a real 9mm pistol ... which all look virtually the same."

"And he warned: 'There may come a time when our officers fear for their own safety or a member of the public's safety and they have to discharge a weapon.' "

"The police chief's alarm over fake weapons follows a surge in firearms incidents."

After a City Commission decision this week, Tallahasee police will be getting new Taser stun guns, weapons that stun suspects with a debilitating bolt of electricity.

Florida is among the states with the most Tasers in use, with more than 200 police departments issuing them statewide. But despite claims by commanders and officials at manufacturer Taser International - who say Tasers reduce the number of officers injured in the line of duty - the statewide proportion of officers injured every year has not changed since Tasers were introduced.

Still, some regional agencies, like Tallahassee's, have seen reduced numbers of injuries.

"But now he can't escape the gunfire just down the road from his house on Cooper Creek Road in the county."

"Prettyman has taken his concerns to the Clarksville-Montgomery County Planning Commission, which is expected to vote on proposed gun range regulations at the Aug. 25 meeting."

"The regulations, which have been on the back burner for most of the year, mirror those backed by the National Rifle Association."

"Wednesday morning's shooting spree that ended with three dead and four wounded has people asking questions about the laws that failed to save lives."

" 'When the framers wrote that in the Constitution, I'm sure they didn't mean you have a right to bear arms if you are mentally ill. You can get one undetected at a gun show and you can go out and kill somebody with it.' Representative Julia Carson said she has already signed on to a letter to President Bush asking him to stop the federal assault weapons ban from expiring Sept. 15."

1 - The framers meant the people had the right to keep and bear arms. Period.

2 - The AW ban does not cover SKS's, so extending this worthless ban is completely useless

"The neighbor, Thomas G. Rye, 58, of Columbia, claimed he shot Odam in self-defense while Odam was trespassing."

A city can ban skateboarders from parks, but it cannot ban guns.

A city can ban loitering in parks, but it cannot ban deadly weapons.

A city can ban dogs from parks, but it cannot ban guns.

A city can ban vendors from parks, but it cannot ban guns.

A city can ban bicycles and motor vehicles from parks, but it cannot ban guns.
