"Senator Kerry has cast 59 votes on firearms issues in his Senate career thus far and only 1 vote can be considered a vote for gun owners’ rights—the vote to allow airline pilots to carry firearms. Kerry has voted against gun owners 55 times in the U. S. Senate. He has voted a number of times to ban semi-automatic firearms. In fact, he is a co-sponsor of S.1431 (the bill to reauthorize the 'assault weapons' ban) which would ban many semi-automatic shotguns, detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifles and many other presently lawful guns, characterizing all of them as 'assault weapons.' Senator Kerry has consistently voted with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Senator Kerry has voted to 'regulate' gun shows by voting to allow authorities up to 3 days to conduct background checks on guns sold by private individuals, knowing full well that the requirement would severely curtail, if not destroy, gun shows which are typically two-day only weekend events. In addition, Senator Kerry has voted for the imposition of waiting periods on gun purchases, including waiting periods of 14 days, 7 days and 5 days. And, in spite of this abysmal voting record, the Washington Post reports that 42% of gun owners in the Bush-supporting 'red states' believe that Kerry would be a less aggressive advocate for gun control. In fact, Senator Kerry is more anti-Second Amendment than Al Gore ever was." ...

... "Our nation will be safer only when government does less, not more. Rather than asking ourselves what Congress or the president should be doing about terrorism, we ought to ask what government should stop doing. ... It should stop interfering with the 2nd amendment rights of private citizens and businesses seeking to defend themselves."

"More than anything, our federal government should stop deluding us that more government is the answer. We have far more to fear from an unaccountable government at home than from any foreign terrorist."

"September 11, 2004 will mark the third anniversary of that horrible day that changed the world."

"For most of us, news of the attack was delivered by the mainstream media through our television sets. And it was the same media that has tried to sweep the entire incident under the rug ever since."

"Attempts to memorialize the event or pay tribute to those who were lost have been labeled as trying to exploit the 'tragedy' or make a profit for their own benefit." ...

"On this September 11th, however, Americans across the country -- in small towns and big cities -- will turn off their television sets and head to the streets to demonstrate their love and remembrance of those who died three years ago. We will honor them publicly and will remind the world that the United States has not been beaten. The attack on this nation has made us stronger, not weaker. And we have only just begun to fight." ...

"Touring the country in an effort to renew the 10-year-old ban on so-called assault weapons, the numerically challenged Million Mom March has been conducting a campaign built largely on fiction."

"As far back as 1988, gun prohibitionists figured they could fool the public into supporting a ban that, as history has shown, has been essentially symbolic. Sixteen years ago, Josh Sugarman with the Violence Policy Center put the campaign in its proper perspective, admitting, 'The weapons' menacing looks coupled with the public's confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semiautomatic assault weapons -- anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun -- can only increase that chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.'" ...

"Your Aug. 9 editorial in which you lament inaction on the "assault weapons" ban is an absence of facts and abundance of emotion."

"These firearms the anti-gun crowd is so eager to eliminate fire one round with one pull of the trigger. They are not "machine guns." Because these firearms don't appeal to some of your readers does not diminish their efficacy as a self-defense weapon."

"Seventy police officers were slain by criminals in 2002. According to the ban-the-ugly-gun gang that means that 14 police offers were killed by criminals using one of these semi-autos. None of these deaths is acceptable but a criminal doesn't, by definition, obey laws so bans of this nature provide no relief from criminal violence." ...

"An Indiana group wants that weapon banned along with all other so-called 'assault weapons'. They pressured politicians at a news conference Tuesday to take the guns off the streets once and for all."

"As we all have been reading over the past two weeks, Detroit gun crime rate is soaring, having increased this year by approximately 30% over the same period last year -- or by 70% over the same period, depending on which day you saw the paper! In actuality, the 30% rate is certainly the more accurate figure. But, why such a large discrepancy in statistics at all?" ...

"Detroit.....is using old, outdated computer software that probably does collect at least the fact that a gun was used in a crime and perhaps information about the type of gun used. For many cities, the software is so old, that it has been "tweaked" countless times by many people for many purposes ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Republican U-S Senate candidate Alan Keyes criticized his rival Barack Obama's stand on gun control today, accusing Obama of helping to make the world safe for criminals.

Keyes targeted Obama's vote in the Illinois Senate against legislation that have would allowed gun owners to claim self defense in court when arrested on illegal gun possession charges.

Defendants may not use that defense in court under ordinances now on the books in a number of Illinois communities.

Keyes said those ordinances keep law-abiding citizens from defending themselves.

Democratic spokesman Robert Gibbs says Obama has a record of voting for gun safety while recognizing legitimate needs of sportsmen.
