"Confident that Republicans will not extend the assault-weapons ban, gun manufacturers are gearing up to meet a big anticipated demand for the weapons later this month." ...

"Gun makers say they will be ready for an expected crush of demand, pointing out that many of their customers will be celebrating on Sept. 14. The sale of assault weapons to law enforcement and military officials is legal. Production of parts has been stepped up in anticipation of the ban’s expiration." ...

Manufacturers may anticipate the ban's expiration, but don't take it for granted. Contact your Senators and Representative and let them know that you are still watching them!
 

Gun Dealers now required to be Thought Police [Original Title: Pa. Gun Dealer to Pay in Straw Purchase Lawsuit](JTO)

"Jon Sauers, a federally licensed gun dealer in Philadelphia, Pa., has agreed to pay $850,000 to a woman whose 7-year-old son was killed with a gun the dealer sold to a straw buyer ..." ...

"According to court records, Sauers, owner of Sauers Trading, sold 10 handguns between 1994 and 1997 to Perry Bruce, who resold them illegally. ..."

"During his testimony, Sauers said he followed state and federal laws in all of the sales to Bruce. However, he acknowledged that he never questioned Bruce as to why he bought the 10 handguns. 'I don't know what my reason would be to ask him,' Sauers said. 'I didn't think it was any of my business.'" ...
-------

Poster's Note: When will car dealers be required to be psychologists, too?

KABA Note: In the last 18 months (since becoming involved in the RKABA movement) I personally have purchased 8 handguns (for my own use) and I plan to buy at least one more in the next 6 months. Mr. Sauers is right, it isn't any of my dealer's business why I bought them.

"The Federal Air Marshal Service is reviewing the backgrounds of thousands of secret agents after the Homeland Security Department's inspector general exposed hundreds of cases of misconduct."

"'We're going to examine them to make sure they meet law enforcement thresholds,' FAMS spokesman Dave Adams told Government Executive Wednesday. 'If they do not meet these thresholds, we will take appropriate action - - up to and including dismissal.'"

"Officers who safeguard the skies from terrorists have lied on job applications, slept on duty, worked under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and lost their weapons, according to the DHS Inspector General Clark Kent Ervin."

"To the non-hunter, the fine art of the fair chase is perhaps inexplicable."

"Leave for a moment, if you will, the finality of the successful hunt. For it is, very decidedly, an act of finality when the trigger is pulled. But there is so very much more involved..."

"Invariably when the hunt is mentioned — any kind of hunt — my thoughts immediately go to a particular gun. It is discussed and described at length in Rabbit Stompin’, and resides among my earliest and fondest memories. Standing next to a thousand others, I can pick it right out. Such is one of the sublime subtleties of the hunt: the lines, the heft, the allure of a certain firearm, especially as opposed to others supposed to mimic it." ...

"THE CONCUSSIVE REPORT from the Remington .300 Ultra Magnum rifle's muzzle caused showers of condensation to bounce from the overhang with every squeeze of the trigger."

"Zeroing a rifle, getting it to deliver a bullet precisely where you want, can be challenging--especially when the caliber is a shoulder thumper like the ultra mag. Some describe such guns as firearms that'll hurt you on both ends."

"In the field, though, with shots to 350 yards or more at big-boned, heavy-bodied game (especially on Western hunts), having a bullet screaming from the barrel faster than 3,200 feet per second and delivering nearly 2,000 foot-pounds of energy at 300 yards is reassuring." ...

... "It wasn't clear last night exactly how the group penetrated the school but, two hours later, it was all over, and school number one had been seized."

"Teachers who tried to plead with the attackers and lead the children to safety were shot and wounded, the father of one child who put up some kind of resistance was shot dead and at least one policeman who arrived on the scene was also killed. Some of the Russian media reported that one of the attackers was also shot dead in the firefight with local police officers."

"The fighters quickly decided that they would use their captives, among whom were a large number of children, to maximum effect. Many of the hostages were herded into the school's gymnasium, which the fighters lost little time in mining." ...

"Last night, First Lady Laura Bush said that her husband, George W. Bush, will 'always tell you what he really thinks.' The ban on military-style semiautomatic assault weapons expires at midnight on September 13."

"The parents of the children who have died at the hands of killers armed with these weapons remember candidate George W. Bush telling them that he really thought the ban should be renewed. Police all over America, who face a new wave of killers outfitted with 30, 50 or even 100-round ammunition clips, remember what he said, too. About 50 officers have died from assault weapons fire in the past six years alone." ...

"Moore, 46, of Winfall, is accused in the fatal stabbing of Pamela Virzi, 47, of Edenton, the evening of Aug. 17. He's being held at Central Prison in Raleigh."

"One month before she was killed, Virzi reported Moore to police for violating a protection order issued to keep Moore away from her and her family."

"In her complaint, Virzi said Moore had repeatedly made threatening phone calls to her residence, the last of which included Moore telling her 'You're dead.'" ...

"Common sense prevailed in rural northeast Clark County on Monday when law enforcement authorities made this decision: Marvin Buckbee might be guilty of an illegal backyard burn, but no more than that, so let's not allow this situation to devolve into something really expensive or tragic."

"With that, some 15 officers, an armored SWAT team vehicle and two fire marshals departed, leaving Buckbee in his barn with his 22-caliber rifle, which he had held but not fired or pointed at anyone. He will be sent a citation."

"'Once we got up there and were able to determine that all we had was a simple (illegal) burn, with no overt threats made, we chose to just back off,' said Clark County Sheriff's Sgt. Craig Hogman. 'It wasn't worth a confrontation. I think we acted appropriately.'"

Kudos to the Clark County Sheriff's Office! Just because a man has a gun, doesn't make him a dangerous felon.

"Joined by leaders of the Violence Policy Center and New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, Maloney revealed how easy access to the 50-caliber weapon in the United States threatens the nation's civil aviation system, as well as its chemical and refinery plants and the hundreds of thousands of residents living in communities around those plants. Maloney noted specifically that the 50-caliber's power, long-distance accuracy and explosive ammunition make it a weapon of choice among terrorists, but that U.S. regulation on the sale and monitoring of these weapons remains extremely weak." ...

"Under the measure, sponsored by Assemblyman Paul Koretz (D-West Hollywood), anyone who owns a.50-caliber Browning Machine Gun (BMG) rifle on or after Jan. 1, 2005 would be required to apply for a permit with the state Department of Justice."

"'It won't be easy to get a permit,' said Sandra DeBourelando, principal assistant to Koretz. 'You would have to show a good reason why you need it.'" ...

"The California legislature has completely gone off the deep-end with today's approval to ban the .50 caliber rifle, enact a registration scheme for all ammunition purchases, and ban gun shows at the Cow Palace. These bills will do nothing to reduce crime, will create additional unnecessary costs and bureaucracy to California citizens, certain business owners, and police, and will weaken the economy in the bay area."

"It is evident that the California legislature does not care about you, your safety, your privacy, or your financial well-being. They will work against you, the law-abiding citizen, at every turn. They want to harass you, make you jump through hoops, give up your rights, and take away your ability to defend yourself. Gun owners in California are no longer citizens, they are subjects belonging to a lesser class in the eyes of the idiotic, gun-phobic legislature." ...

"As they planned his funeral, those who knew Mike Waleskowski said they never could have imagined that he would have killed his family -- and then himself."

"But, psychologists said, as irrational an act as it may have seemed, suicide among police officers is more common than most people know. And, they said, in Waleskowski's mind, he was trying to save himself and his family from what he believed would have been terrible shame after he was suspended from his job as a Waterford police officer." ...

"Waleskowski, who was caught on a surveillance camera allegedly taking about $500 from an arrested suspect's wallet, was confronted in the middle of his shift that started at 9 p.m. Saturday and sent to his Waterford home at 3:30 a.m. Sunday."

A tragedy that merely affirms that cops are not "super-citizens" as Sarah Brady would have us believe, and burdening them with this label probably has something to do with their relatively high suicide and familicide rates.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

PO1 Benedict Mamaril of the police Special Action Force, in a drunken stupor, went on a shooting rampage in his hometown in Malasiqui, Pangasinan, last year.

He shot with his M-16 rifle two boys aged 12 and 16 who were bringing a cow to market. Luckily, Mamaril missed, but the cow lay dead after the rampage.

My program, "Isumbong mo kay Tulfo," helped the families of the two boys file an administrative complaint with the Internal Affairs Office (IAS) in Pangasinan.

You know the punishment meted out on the abusive cop? Only a month-long suspension! The offense would have merited his dismissal from the service without prejudice to the criminal case in court.

The decision is outrageous!

"All year round the Purdue Police Department takes several measures to make students feel safe on campus with various technologies and programs."

"For several years it has implemented an emergency telephone system for campus and self-defense classes for students and the surrounding community."

"The emergency telephone system, or ETS, is composed of approximately 110 yellow painted boxes with a yellow light on top marked 'Emergency.' When the central button on the box is pushed, the Purdue Police headquarters will answer. The ETS rings directly to the dispatch computer system and is treated the same as a 911 emergency call." ...
