"Though the agency has denied the program to some of our readers and has made misleading claims about NewsMax’s original story to members of the press, the basic facts of the story remain unchallenged."

"Five or six armed guards patrolled the station. Some carried guns in holsters; others had rifles and bayonets."

"From the gas station, I went to the shopping mall. At the mall, dozens of pistol-packing guards roamed the parking lot and strolled up down the aisles of the various shops."

"In today's editions, the DAILY PILOT has devoted a half page to a gushy restaurant review of a place called Mr. Juan's Gringo Grill, which the Pilot writer likes. There was no mention of the fact that the word 'gringo' is a racial pejorative. Suppose the place were called Mr. Juan's Nigger Grill, or Mr. Juan's Kike Grill, or even Mr. Juan's Greaser Grill? Or, what if the place were simply called Sambos? One doubts the newspaper would have run the review. So, why is gringo acceptable?"

"Three years ago, Alil Ibragimov paid 13,500 hard-earned rubles ($550 at the time) for a Kalashnikov assault rifle on the Dagestani black market. He says he did so in response to a request by the Dagestani authorities for civilians to arm themselves against Chechen militants."

"In June, however, the same Dagestani authorities took Ibragimov's gun away without any compensation as part of a drive to get the weapons back."

"The move left Ibragimov angry, and he vowed to go to court."

"It was the Dagestani police who recommended that I buy a weapon anywhere I could, it was the same police that registered my Kalashnikov, and now the very same police take it away, saying no money will be returned to me," he said bitterly.

"The way I figure it, antique stores are bad for the public. I don't have any way of proving that. But that's how I feel, and therefore I think Congress should pass legislation complicating sales and threatening store owners with stiff penalties if they don't comply with lots of stuff that's hard to comply with. I know this may make the stores go out of business, but, well, that's fine with me."

"Study": Handgun Safety: What do consumers learn from gun dealers?
Submitted by: Guntalker

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Objective: To explore the type and quality of handgun safety information a typical consumer would obtain from a licensed gun dealer."

"Conclusions: Salespeople offered potential buyers little or no education about safe storage of handguns. The information provided was often inconsistent with the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics."

KABA NOTE: By this "study," the reader might come away thinking we're to conclude that the American Academy of Pediatrics is the best organization to oversee gun safety training.

If this is what AAP is suggesting, because the doctors will be so busy teaching people how to field strip firearms to remove obstructions and how to load, unload, shoot and clean weapons, we'd like to nominate their replacements:

• Gun Owners of America and the National Rifle Association can take over ear, nose and throat diagnoses and treatment nationwide;
• Front Sight Training Center in Nevada can instruct doctors on how to care for young children's broken bones; and
• GunCite in Arizona can oversee the training of pediatric surgeons.

It's a good thing we've got smart doctors like this in our country -- we'd never have come up with these brilliant ideas on our own.

An antique .38-caliber pistol accidentally discharged as it was being handled by Rep. Bob Barr during a reception in his honor. The bullet hit a glass door, and no one was hurt.

Georgia lobbyist Bruce Widener said Tuesday that he had removed the magazine from his 1908 Colt but did not clear the chamber before handing the weapon to Barr, a board member of the National Rifle Association.

"Congressman John Linder, a Republican locked in a tight primary battle with Barr, says the accident isn't funny. He calls Barr 'a loose cannon.' In Linder's words -- 'I just don't pick up other people's guns.' "

This article may contain more quotes from pro-gun pilots than any you've ever read before. Good stuff! Original Title: "Pilots ponder pistols on planes"
-------
"As Congress lingers over legislation that would arm pilots with pistols to prevent a repeat of the terrorist attacks last fall, commercial airline flight crews living in Fauquier County [Virginia] appear ready, willing, and able to arm themselves and take on the proposed safety measure."

"I would have no problem at all using a firearm to prevent a terrorist threat to take over the plane." --John King, a 33-year veteran pilot for United Airlines

"Jerry O'Hara, an American Airlines pilot with more than a decade of experience, supports the legislation. Not currently a gun owner, he admitted that he would voluntarily carry a pistol to defend the cockpit if it were allowed, and that he would not be reluctant to use it. 'I would have no hesitation at all,' he said."

And there are many more pilots who not only agree but who are willing to name their airline and go on record in supporting of arming pilots.

"He was sentenced for a variety of crimes including the 1996 shooting of gang member Javier Francisco Ovando. Durden and his partner, Rafael Perez, shot Ovando, placed a firearm in his hand and testified falsely that Ovando threatened them."

"Ovando, who was paralyzed, was convicted of assault, but was released three years into his sentence after the officers admitted they framed him."

A councillor has repeated calls for vigilante action in his village after an armed robbery.

In a dramatic outburst, Rugby borough councillor Ron Ravenhall said it was time for Stretton-on-Dunsmore to fight fire with fire.

Calling for the parish council to give the go-ahead for nightly patrols, he said:
"The law of the land says that you can use reasonable force to protect your property, so if people come at you with a knife you can use a knife; if they come with guns, you can use guns.

"An appropriate response for those patrolling depends on the severity of the attack. I'm not after a shoot-out at the OK Corral, but these villains need to know that they will have a reception committee.

"I'm saying to the parish council, the police can't cope, they are undermanned, but the thing is getting out of hand. We've tried everything else - we need patrols."

"Police here are accused in a lawsuit of using excessive force in detaining a couple in April 2000 as they walked through a wooded area with pellet guns."

"The lawsuit, which was filed last week in Harrison County Circuit Court, alleges Long Beach officers caused physical and mental injuries to the couple and Denise McMullen's three minor children."

"The police officers were responding to a report that four men and a woman were walking in a wooded area in Long Beach with a machine gun, the lawsuit states. The McMullens, who were living in Long Beach at the time, said they had pellet guns."

"The couple claims Kallas, Schultz and Willoughby deprived them of their constitutional rights and caused 'severe physical injuries,' even after they complied with the officers' orders."

"Federal judges usually police one another's behavior, but they rarely mete out punishment. Of 766 ethical complaints lodged last year, only one resulted in a penalty."

"In the single case last year in which the judge was punished, the penalty was a private censure and no details — not even the judge's name — were released."

"We don't like burning brothers in the bond, because you don't know whose ox is going to be gored in the future," one judge said.
