DC: Murder thrives on gangs, guns, and drugs
Submitted by: Anonymous

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Youth gangs are more willing than ever to kill, are more organized than ever and are a major reason why more homicides have been committed in the District this year, crime prevention specialists say."

"There had been 142 homicides in the city as of Friday, compared with 106 at the same time last year — a 34 percent increase. There were 31 homicides in July alone."

KABA NOTE: Meanwhile, the rights-violating handgun ban assures that anyone obeying the law is an easy target for these thugs.
 

Guns and Ideology

"ON JUNE 2 D.C. police were called to the 400 block of K Street NW, where shots had been heard. Police found four men in a parking lot, frisked them and allegedly recovered a loaded 9mm handgun from a man named Bashaun Pearson. Mr. Pearson appeared to be on drugs and later allegedly tested positive for PCP."

"Carrying a handgun in Washington is illegal under almost all circumstances, so his case should have been a routine gun prosecution. But thanks to Attorney General John Ashcroft, it isn't. In fact, Mr. Pearson has a compelling argument -- now before the D.C. Court of Appeals -- that the Justice Department has no business charging him at all. Mr. Pearson's gun was licensed in Maryland, and he has no prior convictions or other pending charges. He is charged, in other words, with nothing more than having a gun -- which, according to the attorney general, is a constitutional right."

"North Carolina NRA members must act quickly to make sure important lawsuit legislation reaches the Governor’s desk!"

"In July, the North Carolina Senate overwhelmingly passed H.B. 622, the NRA-backed measure to stop reckless lawsuits against firearm manufacturers. By a vote of 42-5, the Senate agreed to prevent municipalities from filing politically-motivated lawsuits that attempt to hold gun makers liable for the criminal misuse of their products."

"A federal civil rights lawsuit has been filed against the city of Dallas and a police narcotics officer, accusing the officer of conspiring with informants to frame innocent people on drug charges."

"L. Dwaine Lord filed the civil lawsuit Friday against Officer David Larsen, an informant who worked for the officer and the city, seeking damages for a Jan. 11 raid by police on his home that uncovered no drugs."

"Two Dallas Police Department narcotics officers, Senior Cpl. Mark Delapaz and Officer Eddie Herrera, are on administrative leave while the FBI investigates the fake drug cases. The two officers also have been sued in federal court for alleged civil rights violations. Two confidential informants used by the officers have pleaded guilty to federal civil rights charges of planting fake drugs on innocent people." [emphasis added]

"I always thought that 'providing for the common defense' was one of the federal governments first responsibilities, but it seems we suddenly need a new department of 'Homeland Security' to get the job done. ... I guess the Second Amendment was not adequate enough so they had to devise an alternative solution for our common defense. One such exercise in futility recently bantered about in Congress is the Bush/Ashcroft regime's T.I.P.S. program."

"Why do so many members of Congress harbor such a deep fear and animosity regarding the individual's ability to keep and bear arms? One would assume that they would be just as concerned about their own safety and the well being of their families as ordinary Americans are. Yet, closer inspection reveals the hypocrisy of the Capitol Hill Mafia."
 

How Conservative Is President Bush?

"President Bush may be repeating the sins of his father. Although elected on a Reaganesque, tax-cutting platform, the White House has veered to the left. President Bush has signed a bill to regulate political speech, issued protectionist taxes on imported steel and lumber, backed big-spending education and farm bills, and endorsed massive new entitlements for mental health care and prescription drugs. When the numbers are added up, in fact, it looks like President Bush is less conservative than President Clinton." [emphasis added]

"Nashville's law enforcement officials, state lawmakers and residents living with gunfire are struggling to find a way to sweep illegal guns off the streets."

"Something must be done, they say, to curtail the random gunshots that ring out every day in the city as well as other crimes committed with weapons."

"Existing laws call for a maximum sentence of 30 days in jail for anyone convicted of unlawful weapons possession, the most common offense levied at those shooting guns illegally."

'It's time Tennessee sent a loud and clear message that if you're caught unlawfully carrying a firearm for the purpose of going armed, you're going to jail,' Turner told a state Senate committee last year.

"In March, [Davidson County District Attorney Torry] Johnson's office received a three-year, $360,000 grant from the federal government to hire three new prosecutors to take on a variety of the office's criminal cases."

"Security officers at Los Angeles Airport have confiscated a gun in a security scare - from a plastic toy soldier."

"The two-inch weapon belonged to a GI Joe toy - similar to an Action Man."

"A British tourist told how over-zealous security staff confiscated the two-inch-long plastic rifle from a GI Joe toy soldier she was taking home as a gift for her grandson."

"They then told her that if she wanted GI Joe to keep his rifle, she would have to check in again and put the toy in her suitcase so it could go in the aircraft's hold."

"A spokes[moron] for Los Angeles International Airport said: 'We have instructions to confiscate anything that looks like a weapon or a replica.' "

"If GI Joe was carrying a replica then it had to be taken from him."

"Finkelstein discovered how steeped in the gun culture young people are when she returned to her job as a high school guidance counselor after the shooting."

"Some of the kids were asking me, 'What type of gun did he use?' and 'What kind of bullets were they?' I was stopped dead in my tracks," she said. "They are completely familiar with guns. From that day forward, I knew that I had to do something.' "

KABA NOTE: This is a typical attack piece common from the Lost Angeles Times -- a promotion of the anti-self-defense gun prohibitionists with the Brady Bunch of the Million Misguided Mommies. Funny thing is, when you ask these types of people if they are willing to die for their disarmament cause, you rarely get a "yes". (Considering the fact that they'd rather be raped and murdered than shoot a rapist, this is not surprising.)

Meanwhile, in reviewing past polls taken on this website, there are plenty of gunowners whose answers to that same question are unequivocally affirmative.

" 'I cannot think of a single good reason to take a gun into a classroom,' said Booth, a law student from Sandy, Utah. 'There's always a potential for conflict on a campus. Do you really want weapons around?' "

"The VPC study, based on news clips collected nationwide, is one of the largest and most comprehensive studies ever conducted on murder-suicide. Using the VPC figures, more than 1,300 Americans die each year in murder-suicides. During the six-month study period, 20 North Carolina residents were killed in murder-suicides."

KABA NOTE TO ALL READERS: If you committed murder-suicide, we encourage you to surrender your weapons and turn yourself in. If you have not committed murder-suicide, this "study" isn't germane to you as a lawful, peaceable gunowner -- but do enjoy the following Moronic Quote of the Day:
Josh Sugarmann, VPC executive director, states, "Guns are the catalytic component in murder-suicide."
"Catalytic" is defined as "cause". If that is true, Josh, knives are a catalytic component of murder-suicides where they are used, baseball bats or other bludgeons are catalytic components in murder-suicides where they are used, and so on. In other words, you're a fool, buddy. Come and get 'em -- and bring some of your disarmed peasant friends.
