"This campaign season, the Democrats seem to be throwing everything they can think of at George W. Bush to see what sticks. It doesn't seem to matter if the charges are true or even if the president has any connection to the subject in question."

"One of the most recent charges is that Bush endangers Americans if he doesn't actively push for a renewal of the Clinton-era ban on certain semi-automatic rifles and pistols. The decade-old ban is set to sunset in September unless Congress and the president renew it."

"Bush has expressed support for a renewal, but so far he hasn't pressured lawmakers to send him an extension to sign." ...

"The U.S. Army's pursuit of a weapon to replace the aging M-16 rifle is still on track despite a failed congressional attempt to pump nearly $26 million into the federal budget for manufacturing the weapon in 2005."

"Military and legislative officials say development and testing of the new XM8 assault rifle will run through December. It will be the second round of tests for the highly anticipated rifle, with evaluations taking place in the desert near Yuma, Ariz., the tropical jungles of Panama, and the arctic climate in Alaska, said Col. Mike Smith, who oversees the XM8 testing program at Picatinny Arsenal in northern New Jersey." ...

... "Searching for a post-convention boost, Kerry told a recent Pennsylvania rally, 'I've been a hunter since I was about 12 years old, and I went through the whole progression, you know, BB gun to 22s to 30-30, you name it.'"

"Gov. Ed Rendell says the fact that Kerry handles guns so well could make a difference in Pennsylvania come Nov. 2. The good folks at the National Rifle Association must be laughing themselves silly over that one."

"In reality -- you know, the realm in which presidential candidates are supposed to campaign -- Kerry generally votes against gun rights, supports extending the disingenuous ban on assault-type weapons, and wants to close the mythical 'gun show loophole,' according to the NRA."

"Friday morning was the first time the 63-year-old has had to use it."

"The shop owner fired two shots and wounded a 21-year-old man who allegedly put a gun in Moody's face and tried to rob him." ...

"A guy came in and put a pistol in my face, and said, 'Give me your money,'" Moody said. "I never seen him in my life. I said, 'Man, why you want to rob me?'"

Liberals Gunning for “Assault” Weapons

"The renewal of the assault weapons ban – instituted in 1994 and set to expire this fall – is the cause du jour for liberals. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, New York Times, Oregonian, San Francisco Chronicle, and The Washington Post—to name just a few—have all sounded the call to arms."

"Most editorials tug at the heartstrings while pulling wool over the eyes of their readers. The July 17 New York Times editorial, for example, makes a classic populist appeal: 'Few Americans favor a return to the day when military-style assault weapons like AK-47s, Uzis and Tec-9 pistols could be manufactured and sold, making them readily available for use by gangs and drug traffickers.' The Los Angeles Times has been even more alarmist, calling these guns 'weapons of mass destruction.'" ...

"The Federal ban on assault weapons is scheduled to end next month, but some gun experts and gun dealers say the law effectively expired years ago."

"Gun dealers have used gaping loopholes in the law to sell thousands of military-style rifles - knockoffs of AK-47s, M-16s and Uzis - that have been legally manufactured by U.S. companies." [emphasis added]

"One disheartening example is the made-in-the-USA Bushmaster XM-15, a legal copycat of the Army's commercially banned M-16. The semiautomatic Bushmaster was the gun of choice for John Muhammad and Lee Malvo, the Washington-area snipers who killed 10 people in their 2002 rampage." ...

"Before the assault weapons ban, America was a very different place. Many people remember the shooting in an elementary schoolyard in Stockton, Calif., where a deranged gunman used an AK-47 to fire 106 rounds of ammunition into 35 elementary school children and teachers in less than two minutes."

"Gone forever was the notion, a beloved talking point of gun extremists, that assault weapons are really the same as hunting rifles. The nation was outraged. And in 1994, after the Long Island Rail Road shootings that claimed my husband and nearly my son, America finally made these killing machines illegal."

"But after Sept. 13, these 19 rapid-fire guns will once again be legal. Congress has thus far failed to extend the ban, and to date President Bush has offered only lip-service support for the measure." ...

"The 1994 semiautomatic or so-called assault weapons ban expires Sept. 13. The media drumbeat to reauthorize it has begun, and some politicians are dancing to the familiar tune."

"Instead of merely reauthorizing the ban, however, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-L.I.) seeks to ban more guns and implement a national registration scheme. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the assault weapons ban sponsor, said on CBS' '60 Minutes,' 'If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate for an outright ban, picking up every one of them - Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in - I would have done it.' The gun control agenda has never been stated more honestly." ...

"Congress will have less than a week to extend the 10-year-old federal ban on assault weapons when it returns from August recess, but the indication is that congressional leaders are willing to let the ban expire. President George W. Bush has said he favors an extension and has pledged to sign such a bill. But Congress has to pass one first, and so far on the campaign trail, the president is doing nothing to encourage that."

"House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, is opposed to bringing the extension — which expires Sept. 13 — up for a vote. So is House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., who misled listeners on National Public Radio Wednesday when he said during an interview that the extension 'might have a chance' in the House, but 'there's no promise we can get it out of the Senate because the Senate has defeated it already.'" ...

"Chicken Little arrives every four years in a feather-ruffled flurry squawking about some kind of impending doom. This year she is incited to a level of hen-ish hysteria by the encroaching expiration of the federal 'assault weapons' ban."

"Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry is all for extending the ban on 19 military-style firearms, coos Chicken Little. He suspended his campaign back in March so he could go to Washington and cast one of the few Senate votes he found time to make in the past year. No one should read anything political into that." ...

"Troy Victorino ... reportedly recruited three teens to storm the Deltona home Friday and brutally murder the six people inside, Volusia County sheriff Ben Johnson said Sunday morning."

"'The instrument used was baseball bats, aluminum baseball bats,' Johnson said at a press conference. 'They (four suspects) did severe trauma to all of the victims. As a matter of fact, one of them was so badly damaged that we've not been able to officially identify her.'" ...

Biggest Mass Murder in Sheriff Department's History committed with

Baseball Bats!

The anti-gun groups still point to Patrick Purdy's use of an AKS in Stockton for the proposition that "assault weapons" are "only meant for killing".

Here, four thugs beat six people to death with aluminum baseball bats - beating one woman so badly that two days after the murders, she still cannot be identified.

If you don't live in Florida, I'd like to know if your press is even covering this story. And of course, feel free to email me about any calls for "bat control".

"Forget that state agents were chasing the wrong man."

"Forget that Rodolfo 'Rudy' Cardenas never pointed a gun at the undercover officer who shot him in the back, or that the San Jose man eerily predicted his own death by police shootout." ...

"The pivotal question a jury must consider is Walker's state of mind the moment he aimed his Glock .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol at the 43-year-old Cardenas and fired."

"'The job for the defense will be to focus the jury to that moment in time,' said Los Angeles defense attorney Bill Seki, who represents police officers in excessive-force cases." ...

So it's okay for a cop to shoot an unarmed man in the back as long as he's scared.

Omaha Police are investigating the robbery of yet another pizza delivery man Friday night.

An employee of Home Team Pizza was sent to deliver a pizza near 41st and Ohio where two suspects met the delivery man outside. One pulled a gun and took his cash, pizza, and hot wings. The suspects also took the delivery man's car keys and threw them across the street. The keys were later found.

This was the latest in a rash of robberies of pizza delivery men in the metro this summer.
