Bush Vs. Kerry

President Bush: I firmly believe in the right of an individual to bear arms, as granted by the Second Amendment. My administration filed a brief in the Supreme Court asserting that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own firearms and is not limited to protecting state militias.

Kerry: Yes. As a hunter and a gun owner, I believe that law-abiding American adults have the right to own firearms. As President, I will defend the Second Amendment right of law-abiding American adults to own firearms.

KABA Note: Notice also that Bush states flatly, "...I support reauthorization of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, but I oppose additions to or expansion of the ban." Kerry supports said ban as well.

Notice also that Kerry claims the M-16 is his favorite weapon - the same one that supposedly saved his life during his military service. Yet, he would deny civilians the right to keep and bear the same firearm that allegedly saved him.

 

John Kerry's Speech to the National Guard

"More than 200 years ago, when America was little more than a collection of colonies on the edge of a vast continent, your predecessors resolved to fight for our independence. Many were young – not much older than children. They had nowhere near enough weapons or training or supplies. They were just ordinary citizens coming together to fight for the land they loved. And together, they defeated an empire."

Right-the National Guard is the Constitutional militia-now give us your guns.
 

Department of Justice Ordered to Stop Withholding Records From the Public

"Federal government agencies have been ordered by a federal appeals court to release data on sales of firearms and tracing of firearms recovered by law enforcement." ...

"The data was sought by the City of Chicago for use in its lawsuit against gun manufacturers, distributors, and dealers for contributing to a public nuisance in Chicago by facilitating trafficking of large numbers of firearms into Chicago, where handguns have been illegal since 1982. By concealing the data, ATF is preventing the public from learning which firearms dealers have sold the most crime guns even though reports ATF has published have noted that just over one percent of dealers are linked to more than 57 percent of crime guns recovered nationwide and traced."

"Good riddance to bad law, implying it is preferable to be shot by a firearm less 'menacing'. ..." -- Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

"...Does this mean you'll face more heavily armed criminals in the streets? Gun store owners explain that there was never a ban on assault weapons. ..." -- WOAI, San Antonio

"Depending entirely on the police for protection from crime has always struck me as being a poor plan, and the crime-deterring effects of gun control have always been questionable. ..." -- Les Jones

"In many ways, the expiry of the ban is more important for its symbolism than its effect on the gun industry. ..." -- The Scotsman

Please inform Ms. Thomas that the Founders specifically intended the hands of civilians to hold these weapons as a check on oppression. hthomas@hearstdc.com
 

Gun Control Never Works

"Hunting rifles and shotguns can be just as deadly as an AK-47. However, those weapons do not appear as ominous. In 1994, Diane Feinstein asked her staff to come up with a list of assault weapons to place on the banned list. They got their hands on a gun catalog and went through--picking out weapons that were black and those that had a militaristic appearance. None of course, were fully-automatic." ...

"Gun control never works because the logic behind it is completely flawed. Criminals do not purchase their weapons through legitimate gun retailers. They buy them on the street, where they are cheap and cannot be traced. Or they simply steal them. ..."
 

Gun control still a political weapon

"The expiration of the assault weapons ban was a depressing but potentially valuable lesson in the rancid politics of gun control."

"Honest debate on gun policy is impossible because of the cynical absolutism of the current leadership of the National Rifle Association, the Republican Party's dependence on this interest group's muscle, and the fear the NRA inspires among some Democrats."

"At a time when preventing terrorism is supposed to be a national priority, why can't our politicians agree to sustain a ban on a very narrow class of firearms? Is our national policy to do all we can to defeat the terrorists - except for those weapons that the NRA vetoes?"

-------
Right. It's all the NRA's fault. Why can't these rabid extremists understand that we're only trying to violate their rights just a little bit?
 

Steve Lewka: Gun ownership rights vs. responsibilities
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"The 'ban,' as it was called, was hardly what most people think. Most of the banned guns remained in production and continued to be sold. ...Only the parts that made them look more military, things like muzzle flash suppressers, bayonet mounts, and folding stocks, were illegal. ..."

"People can again buy 'real' assault weapons. It's their right, the same as it's mine to have my old hunting shotgun and rifle. Ownership and use of military weapons without military training and discipline is a dangerous mix, though. It would be a refreshing and useful change to have people focus as much attention on the responsibilities of gun ownership and use as they do on protecting their Second Amendment right to bear arms."

The Ignorance and Tactics of the Anti-Gun Crowd (Letter)

"The ignorance and fear tactics of the anti-gun crowd never ceases to amaze me. Peter Kurtz of Cincinnati writes that President Bush should have done something about an unconstitutional 'assault weapons ban' that Congress failed to place on his desk, seeking a signature he promised to give it, had it appeared."

"Kurtz asks why the assault weapons ban lapsed. The answer is that most Americans do not support unconstitutional law and are smart enough to realize gun restrictions do nothing to prevent crime. ..."

"To restrict law-abiding citizens' gun ownership rights only serves to empower the criminal and is blatantly unconstitutional. It a takes a liberal not to see this for the simple truth that it is."

"Try to imagine the following scenario: Abu Jihad al-Slay-the-Infidels saunters into a gun shop and asks to buy a military-style assault weapon – say one with a menacing pistol grip or a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. (Are these weapons of choice of holy warriors the world over?)"

"Now, thanks to Bush’s alleged caving to the gun lobby, he can get one by snapping his fingers. But prior to September 14th, when blocked from legally purchasing a TEC-9 by the ban, he presumably muttered Arabic obscenities, sulked and turned to peaceful protest."

"Only a Democratic presidential candidate would ask us to believe something so improbable."
 

NY: A Warning From RPD For This Time Of Year

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Rochester police are warning parents to beware of possible sexual assaults of young schoolgirls on their way to school.

Police are investigating five cases still open from previous years. No arrests have been made.

The attacks were on girls ages 12 to 18, as they walked to their bus stop early in the morning.

Police are asking parents to supervise their kids until they get to a bus stop or school. Also, be alert to anyone following kids, and to call 911 to report any suspicious persons or activity.

There have been no cases of sexual assault on school children so far this year.

-------
This illustrates two things: 1) It's time for parents to stop being non-existent in their children's lives, and 2) the RPD openly admits that it's parents' responsibility to protect their children. They have no responsibility to protect children, just like they have no responsibility to protect the rest of us.

" 'The ban didn’t make any difference,' said Richey Crew, owner of Richey’s Gun Shop in Pontotoc."

" '(Pre-ban and post-ban guns) both shot the same bullet, both shot at the same speed. You have to be as careful with one as the other,' he said."

"Richey said the ban mostly affected what equipment could be put on a gun, such as a pistol grip, collapsible stock, detachable magazine, flash suppressor and bayonet lug."

" 'How many folks have been robbed at a bank with a bayonet?' he said."

"Crew said 'two or three different people' have asked him about buying items that were forbidden under the ban now that it has been lifted."

NY: America enjoys the sunset; New York City Council does not

"Not surprisingly, the New York City Council is in a dither over the sunset of the Assault Weapons Ban, and is riding to the rescue with its usual alacrity. Asserting that allowing the ban to expire is a slap in the face to New Yorkers -- who, incidentally, are still subject to New York State's own "assault weapons" ban -- Council Speaker Gifford Miller, Council Member David Yassky and Andrew Pelosi of the New Yorkers Against Gun Violence proposed legislation on September 12th that increases penalties for those who illegally sell or purchase firearms. The NYSRPA views this proposed legislation as merely the latest attempt by the Council to garner publicity by promoting legislation that has no effect on crime. It is absurd to think that criminals will pay any more attention to this new law than they already pay to the myriad gun laws on the books. The likely effect will be to penalize law-abiding gun owners who accidentally run afoul of the more obscure regulations."

"The incident occurred about 11:15 p.m. Wednesday when FBI agents attempted to arrest Casey James Nethercott, 37, in the parking lot of a supermarket in Douglas in southern Arizona, Charlene Thornton, special agent in charge of the Phoenix office of the FBI, said in a statement.

" 'It is not about putting a barrier between persons and their statutory rights,' Falls Church City Manager Dan McKeever explained to the City Council Monday about his new policy toward individuals bearing guns in public places." ...

"McKeever devised the policy in reaction to a new state law prohibiting local jurisdictions from prohibiting the right of individuals to carry guns into public buildings. He said it was designed simply to clarify the intent of an individual who carries out that statutory right."

"It calls on City employees to notify the police whenever a person is encountered who is carrying a firearm, and that police should interview the person to assess his or her intentions. 'It's a common sense way to ask police to evaluate the reasons for a person to be there with a firearm,' he said, noting that an individual would not be required to cooperate."

A man brandished a gun at police officers after his vehicle was followed by a patrol car in Stoke-on-Trent.
The man was a passenger in a car which was pursued by police after they spotted it in the Goldenhill area on Thursday afternoon.

The car stopped on Congleton Road and a masked man got out and pointed what was thought to be a handgun at officers.

The car was later found abandoned on Old Butt Lane. The men are thought to have fled towards the Lawton-Gate area.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. — Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
