UK: Gun handover makes police’s day

FULL TEXT BELOW...
-------
"A WOMAN has handed in seven replica firearms to police to be destroyed."

"Among the guns given to Lothian and Borders Police, who are holding an amnesty for replica weapons, was a .44 Magnum - made famous by the Dirty Harry movies."

"The woman decided to get rid of the guns because she did not want them lying around her home, according to police. She also handed in two Italian pistols, two Mausers, an 8mm Webley blank-firing pistol and a .22 pistol."

A police spokeswoman said: "This brings the number of firearms handed in to 118 over five weeks."

"The force launched the two-month amnesty following fears over the growing number of people carrying replicas. Police chiefs have said it is only a matter of time before someone carrying a fake firearm is killed by armed officers."

"Thirty-five years ago, Bill Clinton was unwilling to 'carry a gun and die' for his own country. Yet today he says he is willing to carry a gun and die for Israel. Does anyone see a bit of posturing here? ('G.I. Bill,' Aug. 2)"

"If this doesn't tell the Clinton groupies all they need to know about this political charlatan, nothing will."

"Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon should give Bubba a call and tell him to bring his rifle. Let's see how fast he gets to the front lines."

"The influx of illegal firearms into Nairobi is on the rise, police revealed yesterday."

"The use of guns in all the robberies was an indication gun running had shot up, they disclosed."

Nairobi provincial police chief Stephen Kimenchu said: "Fighting crime should be the concern of everyone. Unlike in the past, we have established there is the use of guns in every robbery reported."

"The officer was speaking at the Nairobi provincial police headquarters when he displayed nine firearms and 15 rounds of ammunition seized in various parts of the city in the past two weeks."

"Six people had been arrested and taken to court over the guns. Four others were killed in shoot-outs with the police."

"He said criminals preferred the AK-47 rifle because it was a high velocity weapon and it was convenient to carry."

Woman who shot cop dead in MN carried gun after surviving robbery attack
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

The story of the 60-year-old woman who died in a shootout with a Minneapolis police officer -- also dead -- has a new twist.

According to the woman's son, who'd just spoken with his mother the day before and is suffering the loss, she "regularly carried a gun." He says she "had done so ever since she was attacked and robbed while living in Chicago."

THIS FILE HAS BEEN EDITED. A report surfaced yesterday telling us that Martha Donald was threatening her neice with a handgun, which sparked the call to the police. The report says:

"Martha Donald used a handgun to threaten her niece shortly before Donald died in a shootout that also killed a Minneapolis police officer, according to a 911 transcript released Monday."

This is the first report we've seen that said any more than she was 'a woman with a gun.' Why it took so long for this information to come out is unknown, but if it's true that Martha Donald was criminally misusing a firearm, she deserved what she had coming. Regardless, we express our deepest sympathies to the fallen officer's family, friends and associates.

This candidate wants to "create an automated fingerprint matching system, so gun dealers could confirm that gun buyers have been licensed by the state."

'This is a candidate who carries an A-minus legislative rating from the NRA. Voters have every right to be suspicious.' [emphasis added]

"There is not much to be gained from arguing against such simple common sense, rooted in fear and the desperate search to ease it. But giving guns to pilots is roughly akin to draping school uniforms on inner-city schoolchildren. There isn't much harm in it. But not much good, either."

"Although Mr. Higazy made no claims of physical abuse, he said recently that after he was left alone for several hours with the agent, he started hyperventilating and was ready to say anything.

"As everyone who flies is aware, an assault is being waged on Americans every minute of every hour of every day at the nation's airports. On the same day, we have heard of yet another outrage from Grand Rapids, Mich.: the bestialization of a double-mastectomy patient, and former Sen. George McGovern declaring that even he's had it with airport 'security.' The situation is no longer tolerable."

"For all intents and purposes, we are displaying the following notice at every one of our airports:"
"If you choose to enter this building, you will be suspected of attempting to smuggle weapons capable of inflicting serious bodily harm or death, and of plotting to cause material damage to these United States as well as potentially fatal injury to its citizens. Federal authorities have determined to place you under suspicion because 19 Arab Muslims, having so plotted for years, and having executed their plans with no interference whatsoever by U.S. authorities, succeeded in what you now stand accused of planning to do. You have to be cleared of the above charges prior to proceeding to a gate area."
"Spine chilling?"

The Problem With The Bush Administration's Proposed "Operations TIPS"

"Did you know that the cable installer, your FedEx deliveryperson, or your electricity meter reader might soon be spying on you? They may be preparing to alert the federal government to any signs of suspicious activity as they install cable, ask you to sign for a package, or check your meter."

"We still do not have answers to crucial basic questions about TIPS, and we must keep asking until we get some. What exactly will these new citizen informants be asked to do? What will happen to the information collected by the government? Will we soon find that we all have dossiers on file with the FBI?"

"An estimated 30,000 cable-style gun locks, along with information about gun safety, will be given away free to the public at locations around Minnesota this month, thanks to a $5 million federal grant to a firearms industry group."

"State officials hailed the program Monday as an important effort to stem the toll of children injured in gun accidents -- 1,800 of them under age 14 nationwide in 2000."

Or perhaps we should give out lawn signs that read unarmed people live here!
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. — James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46
