"www.sportsmenforkerryedwards.com today announced the availability of an information resource for those researching John Kerry’s history with gun control."

"John Kerry goes hunting. John Kerry goes trap shooting. John Kerry says that he supports hunters and the Second Amendment. What actions has Kerry taken on gun control? What is his voting record? Which lobby organizations support him and which ones do not?"

"Whether voting for Senate Bill 2619 which would outlaw virtually all hunting ammunition or cosponsoring Senate Bill 1431 which could outlaw many, commonly used hunting rifles, John Kerry has shown himself to be anything but the sportsman’s friend."
 

IL: Brady blasts Keyes' stand on gun control

"Disabled gun control activist Jim Brady weighed in Wednesday on Republican U.S. Senate nominee Alan Keyes' declaration that the U.S. Constitution grants private citizens the right to own and carry machine guns, calling the remarks an 'insane' call for a return to 'the Al Capone days.' "

-------
What part of "shall not be infringed" do you not understand, Mr. Brady?

And why is it do you think Al Capone reached such infamy as a criminal? Couldn't be because of Prohibition which gave government control of substances private citizens put in their bodies and created a profitable black market for alcohol, could it?

"Alan Keyes, the Maryland resident running for the Illinois Senate, said yesterday that machine guns should be legal."

"Not semiautomatic assault weapons, mind you -- the guns that were outlawed 10 years ago. Mr. Keyes is for legal machine guns, which came under extraordinary federal regulation in the 1930s after the guns were misused by another guy named Al -- Al Capone."

"The manufacture of new machine guns was banned under the McClure-Volkmer Act of 1986."

"Keyes' comments, published today in the Chicago Sun-Times, were made at a press conference in which he was criticizing 'ideological extremism' of his opponent."

"Petka said he plans to ask the legislature to override during the fall session."

" 'The founding fathers did not intend us to live in a culture with police on every corner,' Petka told reporters. 'People should be able to defend themselves.' "

In other words, he supports government granted privileges, not rights. He wants to tell gun owners when, where and how they should exercise their "right" to keep and bear arms.

He seems to forget. A fundamental right is not the government's to grant or control.

"The bill was drafted as DeMar fought a local ordinance citation which charges him with owning two handguns in violation of the local law." ...
 

OR: The Next Question: Should it be illegal to fire a gun within the urban growth boundary?

"A proposal before the Washington County commissioners would make it illegal to fire a gun -- except in cases of self-defense or at a target range -- within the urban growth boundary. Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and fined as much as $100 or sent to jail for as many as 60 days, or both. However, such ordinance violations are enforced only if an officer witnesses the infraction."

"If passed, the ordinance is most likely to affect hunters. It would expand the county's Restricted Shooting District. Currently, hunting is allowed in unincorporated areas inside the urban growth boundary, as long as hunters hold licenses and tags and are not trespassing." ...

So if I hit a deer with my car, I have to either strangle it, bludgeon it, or watch and listen to it as it dies slowly and painfully in front of me?

"A Brighton police dispatcher is facing charges she sold drugs while on duty at City Hall."

She is charged with two counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance. Bond was set at $20,000 on each charge, according to Jefferson County Circuit Court records." ...

"The sheriff also is investigating a burglary in the department's property room. Internal affairs records, a 9 mm pistol and unknown amounts of marijuana and cocaine were taken sometime between July 31 and Aug. 2."

Sounds like they have more problems than just a single police dispatcher. And shouldn't City Hall be seized under federal forfeiture laws?

"Washington County commissioners have postponed until November consideration of proposed restrictions on shooting guns in urban unincorporated areas."

"After a lengthy public hearing Tuesday night, commissioners said enough questions had been raised about the proposal that further study was needed."

"The proposal from Commissioner John Leeper of Cedar Hills was in response to a highly publicized shooting incident last year in the far northeast corner of Washington County at the foot of the West Hills."

"While at work on a construction project inside the urban growth boundary, a man spotted a deer in nearby woods, ran to his truck, retrieved his rifle and shot the deer -- which scared nearby residents who say they are especially concerned about the safety of their children." ...

Well as long as we're doing it "for the children" then any restriction goes, right?

"I have never loved guns, nor do I intend to anytime soon. And, I might add, I am not out to merely make a constitutional point about America, which I do love. However, I was always taught that you don't have to love the truth, but you have to live by it. The three points I would like to make are frighteningly (to some) true, reasoned and refreshingly without emotion:

1. Good people with guns = less crime.
2. Bad people with guns = more crime.
3. Only bad people with guns = a lot more crime.

"Everybody knows crimes are committed with stolen guns — so why do some people think that criminals with records will obey the gun laws and abide by background checks? ..." ...

"The argument that criminals will suddenly descend on hundreds of homes in a weapons-stealing frenzy is suspect at best. If, as many gun-rights proponents argue, criminals stay away from people who are armed, why would they chance crossing paths with a homeowner who has a firearm at the ready?"

OFCC reply:

"Ask any law enforcement officer if criminals want to risk facing ANY homeowner, armed or otherwise, and they will tell you 'no'. These same law enforcement experts will also say that criminals are well-known for casing their targets, figuring schedules for when they can expect the dwelling to be unoccupied. Criminals who want to steal guns are being aided by the Toledo City Paper."
