WA: Reichert opposes assault weapons ban
Submitted by: medicdave

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Dave Reichert, King County sheriff and Republican congressional candidate, recently told a group of Second Amendment advocates that he supports letting the federal ban on assault weapons expire."

"His position shocked community activists with whom he had worked closely in the past to establish and promote gun-violence prevention programs. It is also at odds with a wide segment of law enforcement officials, including Seattle police Chief Gil Kerlikowske."

"But Reichert said yesterday his statement should not come as a surprise to anyone."

" 'I've never changed my position,' Reichert said. 'My whole point has always been holding gun owners responsible and accountable and always focusing on those people who were committing crimes with guns. ... I've never felt that the banning of certain weapons has really done anything at all.' "

"Jefferson County Sheriff John Aubrey is investigating how a plastic pellet gun got through security at the Hall of Justice and into a juvenile court hearing Wednesday."

"The gun was brought out in court as the mother of a boy facing an assault charge tried to illustrate to the judge that it was just a toy, said Lt. Col. Carl Yates, sheriff's department spokesman."

"The judge then asked how the gun had gotten through security. ..."
 

Puerto Rico: U.S. group censures Santini for position on weapons ban

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a U.S. group that is leading the fight to extend the federal ban on the manufacture and sale of assault weapons, has censured San Juan mayor Jorge Santini, for his opposition to renewing the ban.

Brian Malte, spokesman for the campaign chairman, publicly endorsed Santini’s opponent in the race for the office of mayor San Juan, Eduardo Bhatia, and called Santini’s opposition to the Federal Assault Weapons Ban “irresponsible” and “shocking.”

“Mayor Santini is putting at risk the lives of the children of San Juan, their families, and the police,” Malte said.

“We do not know of a mayor in any major U.S. city that is opposed to this federal law. Mayor Santini is the lone wolf,” he added.

-------
Here's a Mayor who understands what the "Assault" weapons ban has accomplished and what an "Assault" weapon really is. He sent a letter to the U.S. Congress, and now the opposing political party is singling him out as a criminal supporter. He understands the meaning of "constitutional right," and now the Brady bunch has decided to support his opponent, claiming that no other mayor opposes this worthless, unconstitutional law.

And, of course, note the use of "the children" as an excuse to relieve people of their rights, even though these weapons are used in a tiny number of crimes, and children hardly ever fall victim to thugs using these firearms.
 

RI: Big guns draw fire from Kennedy

"When asked why the extension was in danger of falling by the legislative wayside, Kennedy blamed special interests and political gamesmanship."

"Proponents say the ban has little to do with the Second Amendment, since it would only prohibit the sale and importation of military-style weapons, designed, as Sardella put it, 'for no other purpose than to help people harm people.' "

-------
Yes, it may come as some surprise to you, but if you actually read the 2nd amendment, you'll find that it helps people harm people too. Sometimes harming people is necessary in order to defend your life, your family or your freedom.

PA: Gun Dealer to Pay in Straw Purchase Lawsuit

"Jon Sauers, a federally licensed gun dealer in Philadelphia, Pa., has agreed to pay $850,000 to a woman whose 7-year-old son was killed with a gun the dealer sold to a straw buyer..."

"The settlement has implications for gun dealers nationwide who sell firearms to straw buyers. ..."

"According to court records, Sauers, owner of Sauers Trading, sold 10 handguns between 1994 and 1997 to Perry Bruce, who resold them illegally. In April, a group of children found one of the guns hidden by a drug dealer under a parked car. According to police, one of the children began playing with it, pointing it at 7-year-old Nafis Jefferson. The child pulled the trigger, killing Jefferson instantly."

-------
This gun dealer followed the law when he sold those handguns. But the fact that he never stuck his nose into the buyer's life and demanded an explanation for his purchases, he is now being held liable.

Maybe if the parents of these kids took a little more time to teach them about gun safety and took a bit more responsibility for their offspring, this tragedy could have been avoided.

"The defendants deny that officers used excessive force."

"The defendants said officers used a Taser gun on Powell because he resisted attempts to arrest him on charges of public drunkenness, malicious damage and resisting arrest."

Suspected gunmen, muggers and hard drug dealers believed to be planning to prey on crowds at this weekend's Notting Hill Carnival have been arrested in an operation to disrupt potential crime and violence.

At least a dozen suspected hard-core criminals have been detained, and in some cases bailed on condition that they do not attend the event.

The event remains one of the biggest policing commitments in the Metropolitan Police calendar, requiring up to 10,000 police shifts to be worked by several thousand officers over Sunday and Monday.

Last year, the policing operation cost Scotland Yard nearly £6 million.

"The department has about 220 M-16 rifles, but they weren't distributed because IPD's training range was deemed inadequate for the rifles' bullets, which can travel more than 1,000 yards at more than 1,000 feet per second."

"...The department plans to give the weapons to about 200 carefully selected officers after the weapons are modified into semiautomatics and as officers are trained to use them, Police Chief Jerry Barker said."

"Rep. Patrick Kennedy and Rhode Island mayors and police chiefs gathered yesterday at the Public Safety Complex to urge President Bush and congressional leaders to extend the federal ban on assault weapons." ...

"The police credit the ban for reducing the number of firearm deaths nationally by 25 percent, a decrease from the peak of 39,595 in 1993 to 29,573 in 2001. With the deadline fast approaching, advocates have been pleading across the nation for Congress to extend the ban."

"But Kennedy blames election-year politics for stall tactics. Although President Bush had pledged to back the ban during his 2000 campaign, he's taken no action to preserve it, the congressman said."

"The state Legislature approved a ban on high-powered .50-caliber rifles this week that would far exceed the restrictions on the weapon enacted by Contra Costa County last spring."

"The legislation, sponsored by Assemblyman Paul Koretz, D-West Hollywood, would make it illegal to manufacture, sell, distribute, import or possess a .50-caliber Browning Machine Gun (BMG) rifle without a permit in California."

"If signed into law by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the bill likely would pre-empt Contra Costa's ordinance, which bans the sale of the weapons in the unincorporated county, and end the legal battle brewing over the new law."

"[Michael Badnarik] argues that he's neither left nor right but a 'second dimension' that adds something new to the political mix. Libertarians believe in the free market, slashing taxes, cutting government spending and regulation, and defending civil liberties. This plays to both the right and left, depending on where you focus. Badnarik can emphasize parts of the party's platform that will be music to both Red and Blue ears. In North Carolina, he can emphasize law and order and gun rights (Libertarians are strong Second Amendment supporters). ...In our discussion, he bashed Bush more than Kerry. It's not that he's inconsistent or pandering – it's just that the Libertarian philosophy cuts the pie in a wholly different way."

"He quickly became known as a politician with a love affair for television cameras, an expert in getting the media to pay attention to his crusades."

"In 1988, when East Bay officials tried to ban assault rifles, Perata was the one to wave a weapon in front of the television cameras. He illustrated a hearing on alcohol problems in the inner city with a lineup of bottles and cans of cheap wine and malt liquor straight out of local liquor stores."

"But those colorful efforts were more than just a one-time show. In 1999, after years of battling for gun control and seeing his bills vetoed, Perata finally saw Gov. Gray Davis sign his bill giving California the nation's toughest assault weapons ban."
