"Reacting to an assertion by his defense attorney that accused gun runner and former neo-Nazi Keith Gilbert – on trial in Seattle for illegal gun trafficking – is 'a Second Amendment guy,' the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms this morning called that claim 'hogwash.'"

"'For Gilbert to claim some kind of martyr status in this case is simply ludicrous,' said CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron. 'His argument that he somehow engineered his arrest so that he could use his criminal trial as a forum to challenge gun control laws is not going to gain any traction at all with genuine firearms rights activists.'" ...

"In a recent article, I admitted that concealed carry permitholders are human beings, and allowed for the possibility that in a rare scenario one could possibly screw up by diving headfirst into a third party scenario without all the facts."

"Permitholders rarely screw up. But never mind - no matter what I say, what unbiased researched facts I have in my hands ... we will always be baby-killing, vigilante, inbred, redneck, racist thugs to anti-gunners. Antis don't reason ... They don't trust themselves with guns and don't think they can handle a situation rationally, so they think we can't. It's called projection." ...

"The US House of Representatives will soon vote on HR 5092 ... the '... (BATFE) Modernization and Reform Act of 2006'. Many are hailing this bill as a positive step toward reform of the BATFE."

"But is it really?"

"- Unlike HR 1603 ... HR 5092 does not require the videotaping of BATFE firearm tests, which would ensure these tests are conducted fairly and competently."

"- HR 5092 does not require the BATFE to establish standardized, written procedures on how firearms are tested"

"- HR 5092 does not address the BATFE's policy of arbitrarily reclassifying firearms or firearm accessories as illegal ... nor require the BATFE to give notice of such reclassification"

"- HR 5092 does not address the situation of gun owners who may have been unfairly convicted through faulty firearms testing or arbitrary firearms reclassification" ...

"A burglary suspect is dead after the homeowner opened fire. It happened Monday morning in Waxhaw."

"Now, the district attorney is working to figure out if the homeowner was protecting his family or if he was protecting his property."

"How the DA's office answers that question will determine if the shooting was a legal case of self-defense."

"Union County deputies arrived at the home on Locklyn Road around 12:30 a.m. Monday. John David Mobley, 38, had been shot. Paramedics tried to save his life, but were unable."

"'It's not worth a life,' said Mobley's Aunt Mary Wheeler. 'It’s like you see a dog and you don’t want him on your land and you shoot him.'" ...

'These are the ones that really concern us,' he said of the mountain lion."

"As a member of the N.R.A., I can assure Mr. Klinkenborg that we are not a group of prickly individualists itching to answer affronts with gunfire or, as the cynics claim, shoot at Avon ladies."

"We do believe that individuals have a moral right to protect themselves and others when confronted by criminals."

"Our support of right-to-carry and related gun laws is an effort to extend legal protection to the basic right of self-defense. The police do a fine job of patrolling the streets but can’t be everywhere." ...

"To gun salesman Ed Riddle, the Pennsylvania Legislature has it all wrong."

"The state House has scheduled a special session Sept. 26 to discuss changes to gun laws. One proposal would limit the number of guns a person could purchase in a month to one. Many Democrats believe limiting gun purchases would end a veritable bloodbath that's going on in Philadelphia ... But local gun dealers say the folks in Harrisburg are aiming at the wrong targets."

"'If anybody comes in here looking to buy more than one gun at a time, it's usually a collector who wants two firearms to fill out his collection, not gang-bangers who buy sacks full of guns and hand them out to their friends on the streets,' said Riddle ..." ...

"Some 20 million to 60 million people try to kill themselves each year, but only about a million of them succeed ..."

"The ones who do end their lives 'are tragic situations where help could have been provided', said Brian Mishara, president of the International Association for Suicide Prevention ..."

"Suicide rates could be reduced if countries would limit access to pesticides, guns and medication and do a better job of treating people with depression, alcoholism and schizophrenia, Mishara said." ...

Submitter's Note: Again: restricting guns reduces gun suicide rates, but leaves overall suicide rates are unchanged.
