"Regulate Guns" = "Ban Handguns Now"?

Blog, by Volokh, on the slippery slope between regulating guns and banning them
-------
"Some gun rights advocates argue that calls to 'regulate guns as consumer products' are just attempts to let the government ban guns through the back door. This is not logically necessary -- of course lots of things are regulated without being banned -- but the claim is that in this case, regulation will just be a means to the end of prohibition."

"Well, we now see another piece of evidence for this -- as InstaPundit points out, there's a new site called RegulateGuns.org that purports to call simply for regulating guns, but the WHOIS directory shows that it has been registered by a group called the Violence Policy Center (something that the site apparently doesn't reveal). And the VPC, it turns out, also runs a site called . . . BanHandgunsNow.org. Pretty telling, no?"

"With the 107th Congress drawing to a close, activists are looking ahead to next year for a renewed effort to pass a bill that would subject the gun industry to the same health and safety regulations as almost every other industry."

"The Firearms Safety and Consumer Protection Act (S. 330 and H.R. 671), authored by Sen. Robert Torricelli (D-NJ) and Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), would give the Department of Treasury the authority to regulate the design, manufacture, and distribution of guns."

UK: "One person commits suicide every two hours" - without firearms

"Young men and suicide 'hot spots', such as railway bridges, will be key targets of a national strategy to reduce the number of people taking their own lives in England, according to an initiative launched today (16/09/02) by health ministers."

"On average, one person commits suicide every two hours, says the Department of Health, which has set a target of reducing the number of suicides in England by at least a fifth by 2010. To achieve this goal, the government has officially launched its National Suicide Prevention Strategy, following a three-month consultation."

"One of the strategy’s key goals will be the targeting of young men, who are considered most at-risk from suicide – it is the most common cause of death for men under 35. Young men who self-harm will be monitored in an attempt to identify those most likely to attempt suicide, with preventative action being taken."

"Steps will also be taken to make it harder for people to commit suicide. These will include promoting the safer prescription of antidepressants and analgesics, and assisting local authorities in identifying – and making safer – locations where suicides most commonly occur, such as high buildings and bridges."

"The SA80 is the UK forces' standard weapon, but troops in Afghanistan had reported the rifle sometimes jamming in action."

"There had been reports the Government was considering scrapping it but this option is thought to have been rejected."

"Instead, the BBC has learned the MoD is now embarking on a confidence building exercise in the Omani desert, where the SA-80 is being tested against other weapons, including the American M-16."

"The aim is to show that British soldiers are not being issued with inferior kit and sources have told the BBC there is no question of replacing the SA-80."

"Four New Jersey school districts have been conducting drug residue tests at some of their schools for several months, but one has discontinued the practice because it found the testing kits to be unreliable."

"The Toms River Regional and Southern Regional districts in Ocean County began testing in January without notifying the public. The tests also were implemented in the East Windsor Regional and Mercer County Vocational districts, and also are used in other states."

"The testing is part of a federally funded pilot program that examines the effectiveness of the kits -- long used by law enforcement agencies -- within a school setting. At a cost of less than $1 each, the kit almost instantaneously detects trace amounts of marijuana, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine on a variety of surfaces."

"A piece of paper is rubbed on a surface and is then sprayed with an aerosol reagent that turns it a different color if drug residue is present. The testing was done on several common surfaces, such as locker doors and bathroom stalls."

"As a parent, I can also easily empathize with the anguish Noelle's father, Florida Governor Jeb Bush, must be experiencing. And I'm in total agreement with his insistence that his daughter's substance abuse problem is 'a private issue.' "

"But when I think about the heartless stance the Governor has taken toward the drug problems of those less-fortunate and well-connected than his daughter, my empathy turns to outrage." ...

"But the rich and powerful are judged by a very different set of rules. That’s why the staff at Noelle's rehab center tore up a sworn statement incriminating Noelle even though the facility's standard policy is to turn all such matters over to the police."

"And gun-running between the two cities is just one of the examples of increasing links between the violent crime crews."

"There are now fears that the gangland wars which have turned Manchester's Moss Side into the British Bronx could spill out onto the streets of Birmingham."

"Steve Shropshire, author of a new report on gangs in Manchester, has called on Greater Manchester Police and West Midlands Police to work together to break the cities' crime links."

"Mr Shropshire, who has been given access to secret police documents for his report, told the Sunday Mercury:
"There is an increasing amount of inter-action taking place between gangs from Manchester and Birmingham.

"Unlike other areas, there is no great rivalry between crews from the two cities. It is more like co-operation. I believe this is because there are a lot of family connections."

Now one senator wants to impose a user fee on exporters and importers to help fund the bill.

"GUN-FREE" WASHINGTOON, D.C. -- "The female officer was off-duty and in her personal car when the incident occurred just before 5 o'clock Monday morning. The shooting happened at the Texaco station on New York and West Virginia avenues, in northeast Washington.

Authorities said that two men were attempting to rob another woman when shots were fired. The off-duty officer was shot in the leg, and the robbery victim was also hurt. "

More gun crime in gun-free Washington DC -- even the police are getting hit with "banned" handguns, and virtually everyone but criminals is an easy target for predators. End the D.C. handgun ban NOW!

"In March of 2002, 6 people were indicted for fraudulently certifying concealed carry applicants without providing the required training for these applicants. In return for a fee of up to $75, the instructors certified that people had completed training when they hadn’t. As a result of this fraud, it is estimated that as many as 7,000 persons received concealed carry licenses without going through the required training and shooting qualification test.
