"Less than two years ago, it seemed, we were on the brink of a serious discussion about the role of guns in America. A string of grisly killings, coupled with a President who saw opportunity in battling the National Rifle Association, had given new momentum to the seemingly endless and often fruitless quest for more gun control. But windows open and windows close, and at the end of that particular bout of self-examination we had no more meaningful legislation than we had before it started."

"Civil libertarians charge that the new security measures sacrifice political freedom in the name of national security while contributing little or nothing to the war on terror."

"A little more than one month after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, public enemy No. 1, Osama bin Laden, predicted that 'freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.' "

"Ronnie Barrett, whose family-owned Tennessee company makes some of the most popular .50-caliber rifles on the market, said efforts at increased regulation of his product are misguided attacks on the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution."

This thoroughly unscientific 'study' reported by the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, purports (in grand liberal tradition) to indicate all kinds of 'statistics'."

This is yet another big-media opportunity to trot out the old standards: health professionals need to step in and 'educate' patients about the horrors of guns; guns need to be "designed to permit only the authorized owner to fire them;" more arbitrary figures about "children" committing suicide; etc.

"According to police reports, on Nov. 29, 2001, Talada entered Solock Sporting Goods Store in Sayre and attempted to purchase a Mauser 8mm Model Yugo 48 rifle. To complete the purchase, Talada was required to file an ATF Form 4473 which is required by Pennsylvania Law."

While investigating the matter, police said they found Talada had been convicted of six offenses in which he could have been sentenced to over one year."
