OH: OFCC learns of behind-the-scenes progress on HB12

"Ohioans For Concealed Carry (OFCC) has learned that, due to Senate amendments to HB12 dealing with how one should carry a firearm, law enforcement agencies in Ohio are not in agreement on Am. Sub. HB12."

"The Buckeye State Sheriff Association (BSSA) and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) believe that making someone repeatedly handle, holster and unholster a loaded firearm is unsafe. These unsafe practices would be mandated as a result of Taft-sponsored Senate amendments."

"The amended language would require license-holders to change how and where they carry a firearm when entering or exiting a vehicle, and applies different rules depending on the age of the vehicle's occupants."

"Certainly you have read or heard about Ashcroft proclaiming the suspension of the United States Constitution and our Bill of Rights via the 'Patriot Act' as being a 'tool.' This guy was a senator? This guy’s a lawyer? This guy’s the Attorney General of the United States?"

All she did was murder 81 Americans, 26 of whom were children, kidnap a little kid for the communists after his mother gave her life to get him to freedom, and cover for Bill Clinton as he enriched himself selling weapons of mash distraction to the Chinese! At least she hasn’t used the Constitution for bathroom tissue!"

"...Recently, we tested the effectiveness of such a program in Pittsburgh and found that special firearm-suppression patrols significantly reduced 911 calls reporting shots fired and hospital-treated gunshot injuries in the targeted neighborhoods. Our estimates also suggest that Pittsburgh's policing program was extremely cost-effective. The costs for the program were less than $35,000 in overtime expenditures, with savings from reduced gunshot injuries estimated to be as high as $25 million, based on an estimated $1-million total expenditure on each gunshot injury."

"Sen. Kevin Miller, R-Harrisonburg, wrote to Kilgore seeking the opinion after the Rockingham County School Board readopted a zero-tolerance policy against firearms on school grounds.

New York, with two-and-a-half times the population, had fewer murders in each of the last two years, excluding the September 11, 2001, attacks." ...

A "larger magazine capacity" is good for anyone using a firearm in self-defense. The San Francisco paper is happy to recognize that fact -- when it comes to hired government employees' firearms.

Their "Conclusion":

"Keeping a gun at home is unlikely to provide a net benefit to the rest of the community in the form of burglary deterrence. If anything, residences in a neighborhood with more guns may be at greater risk of being burglarized. The upshot is ironic: Guns are often kept to protect the home, but the aggregate effect of keeping guns at home may be to increase the victimization rate."

"The federal 'assault weapons ban' violates this bedrock principle of respect for the immutable rights of a free people on numerous points. This law was capricious, arbitrary, unenforceable, ineffective, AND in direct conflict with the clearly stated prohibition of the Second Amendment:"

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

"I can assure you from personal experience, Mr. Buchanan, this law 'infringes' every owner of these firearms. Under its provisions many formerly available models have been forbidden from further import. Costs on the remaining models have sky-rocketed, in many cases tripling in price within a year or two. That is essentially a violation of the constitutional prohibition against seizure without just compensation."

"The media is fascinated, the government is 'on message', the police's Operation Trident is on the case and everybody's afraid to go to Brixton again - and yet few people who aren't black really understand the phenomenon now known as 'black-on-black crime'. So the purpose of all this activity - to put a stop to the shootings - is being lost."

"Wyoming City Council Monday night passed a new resolution regarding dangerous weapons on city property."

"The vote was 3-2 in favor of the resolution, with council members, Martin English, Lynn Koalska, and Sandy Standridge voting in favor. Mayor Vern Haag and Council member Ted Phillips voted against the motion."

"The resolution, proposed by Koalska prohibits any dangerous weapon on city-owned or controlled property. It does not prohibit the carrying of handguns by those with permits to do so, provided they carry the permit with them and photo identification. Nor does it prohibit any peace officer on or off duty from having/carrying his or her weapon."

"The new resolution rescinds a similar one passed July 21 which required 24-hour written notification of the police department by conceal-and-carry permit holders that they intended to have their weapon with them."

"Unidentified gunmen shot and killed a radio commentator, who is known for his attacks against corruption in the provincial government and illegal gambling, police and relatives said Wednesday."

"Noel Villarante of radio station DZJB, who also writes for a provincial newspaper, was first shot by a gunman outside his house in Santa Cruz town in Laguna province south of Manila late Tuesday."

"He was able to run back inside his home, but when relatives tried to drive him to a hospital, another gunman fired a warning shot to scare them away, leaving him defenseless. One of the gunmen then shot him at close range and continued shooting even after he fell on the pavement, Villarante's wife, Jocelyn, told DZRH radio."

"Common sense and evidence of the worst-kind continue to mount against the Ohio State Highway Patrol and Governor Bob Taft."

"It is simply not acceptable to suggest that someone can simply 'drive off' from a carjacking attempt. These unfortunate and deadly incidents not only prove that concealed carry reform must allow for carrying in a vehicle, but are clear evidence the law must be passed immediately, before more Ohioans are forced to die or suffer serious injury doing what the Ohio State Highway Patrol suggests."

"We can't know whether the last three Ohioans to be shot would have chosen to carry a concealed firearm if it were legal. But we DO know they were shot by doing exactly what OSHP Capt. John Born said they should do in that situation. And we DO know that violent crime rates, including carjackings, are reduced after concealed carry laws are passed."

"In a news release yesterday, the Canada Passport Office issued new specifications for passport photos and wants serious faces only. But not too serious. Not actually frowning or scowling or glaring or grimacing."

"To get a valid passport, Canadians must now send in two photos with 'neutral expressions.' That means a closed-mouth, straight-ahead gaze into the camera."

"Suzanne Meunier, a spokeswoman with the passport office, said the government is complying with recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization, the United Nations agency responsible for aviation issues, aimed at making it easier for security personnel to recognize the passport holder."
 

Restricting Access to Guns by Domestic Violence Offenders Lowers Homicide
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"...A number of states have attempted to reduce intimate-partner homicide by enacting bans on gun possession by violent partners. The ban applies to either those under restraining order or those who have been convicted of a domestic violence misdemeanor. So how well do these laws work? Recently, we explored the effectiveness of these laws and found that restraining-order laws lower intimate partner homicide rates by 9 percent to 12 percent, but only when the state has the technical capacity to crosscheck restraining orders with firearm purchases. Laws preventing those with a misdemeanor conviction from possessing firearms, in contrast, do not have a detectable effect on homicides."

"A 66-year-old Huntington woman made it past security at the Cabell County Courthouse last Friday with a loaded 22-caliber handgun in her purse."

"Although officials believe the incident was an accident, the breach of security has prompted an effort to screen visitors to the courthouse more carefully. The county budgeted more than $300,000 last year to beef up security at the courthouse."

"Courthouse officials said Gladys Jarrell was in the county clerk’s office for about three to five minutes with the pistol in her purse before security guards noticed the gun on the monitor of the X-ray scanner."

Prison Penalties and Gun Crime: The Effects of Project Exile

"...Project Safe Neighborhoods, meanwhile, builds on the perceived success of the Project Exile program in Richmond, VA. Launched in February 1997, after an alarming rise in the city's homicide rate during the 1990s, Project Exile garnered much praise for its effectiveness after gun homicides in Richmond dropped 40 percent from 1997 to 1998. Today the program continues as one of the few that enjoys support from both sides in the debate about gun control in America. However, the program may not have been as successful as has been widely claimed. Having put Project Exile through its first rigorous examination, we find that most of the observed decline in gun homicides would likely have occurred even in the absence of the program."

"That reality has prompted the attorney and local law enforcement to band together to combat firearm crimes."

"The federal government said yesterday that it has trained hundreds of commercial airline pilots to carry guns in the cockpit, and thousands more may be armed within a year, through a program created by Congress to deter hijackings."

"Airline pilots unions once estimated that tens of thousands of commercial pilots would sign up for the program. But so far only 5,000 -- or less than 6 percent of the nation's estimated 85,000 to 100,000 active airline pilots -- have applied to the Transportation Security Administration, according to the lobbying group Airline Pilots Security Alliance. The TSA declined to confirm the exact number of applicants. The agency also wouldn't specify how many pilots had graduated from the Federal Flight Deck Officer program because it said the numbers and names should remain anonymous, as they are in the undercover air marshal program."

"Some gun control advocates say the actor may be unfriendly toward gun control but some gun rights groups say the Republican candidate for California governor has not helped their cause with his violent films."

"Take this scene in the 1990 film 'Total Recall' when Schwarzenegger raises a gun to his scheming 'spouse' played by Sharon Stone. 'But I'm your wife,' she pleads."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The supposed quietude of a good mans allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them... — Thomas Paine, I Writings of Thomas Paine at 56 (1894).
