"'We're going to hit them right where it hurts -- in their bank accounts -- and we won't stop hitting until they stop flooding our streets with guns.'" --Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, leading proponent of the 'bankrupt the gun industry' movement."

"This quote demonstrates the rabid zealotry that exists in the anti-gun community. It also shows why it's so important for Congress to enact good legislation ..."

"Rep. Marilyn Musgrave has introduced H.R. 800 to do just that. The bill has already garnered broad support. Unlike the Senate version (S. 397), H.R. 800 is a CLEAN bill that will protect gun makers and sellers without punishing gun owners." ...

"Unfortunately, the NRA management is still supporting S. 397, even though it has gun control attached ..." ...

"After the storm came the carjackers and burglars. Then came the gun battles and the chemical explosions that shook the restored Victorians in New Orleans' Algiers Point neighborhood."

"'The hurricane was a breeze compared with the crime and terror that followed,' said Gregg Harris, a psychotherapist who lives in the battered area."

"After the storm, the neighborhood association had to act as law enforcement and emergency response unit as city services collapsed and the police force was unable to protect them." ...

"'We were the ones defending the neighborhood when you took a powder. Now you’re taking our guns?' This is the puzzled disbelief of New Orleans homeowners evacuating their homes while surrendering their weapons to an armed mix of U.S. Marshals, Police and Military the week of September 9th."

"A gun confiscation baffled me, and put up a red flag."

"At first, the evacuation sounded like the set-up for an immense land grab ... On this, we shall see."

"But gun confiscation is immediate and in many ways worse: a trial balloon to see how the public everywhere will react to disarming law-abiding citizens while they are weary and still in shock, further evidence on how America doesn’t care about poor folks, right? ..." ...

"Both men credit Michael Moore's 2002 documentary Bowling for Columbine for bringing gun-control issues to the screen." ...

"... The guy on the 4-wheeler swerved in front of me and began waving his arms and cursing at me. I was both surprised and highly irritated, but I slowed and returned to the right lane ..." ...

"... I gave him a rather dismissive middle finger as I was easing by. That's when the gun came out ..." ...

To the Ottawa County Gun Board, Joe Heindlmeyer was a time bomb they worried might explode.

As a 20-year-old in 1989, the Holland resident threatened to blow himself up with a homemade pipe bomb in a desperate act doctors attributed to clinical depression.

Those mental-health issues, which never reappeared, made him a risk for having a concealed handgun, the gun board told him three years ago in denying a concealed weapons permit.

"The usual advice about shooting a burglar is to make it look like an attack on your life if you want to avoid a murder charge. Several new bills introduced in the Legislature will save you the trouble of pushing the body back through the window."

"An expanded interpretation of the legal use of deadly force by civilians is the logical extension of Michigan's five-year-old carrying concealed weapons (CCW) law. A similar measure has successfully been passed and signed into law in Florida. Gun control advocates hope to stop the momentum here." ...

"Just four days after Associated Press reporter John McCarthy published an error-filled story claiming that, when introduced, Rep. Aslanides' weeping firearms law reform legislation would 'hide lists of gun permit-holders', the news service has published a follow-up story that glosses over the error." ...

"But as Buckeye Firearms Association had reported hours before the original botched story, Aslanides' draft legislation did not contain language that the AP had reported. Rather than correct his error, the writer simply claims the legislation marks a 'major change' from what he had originally reported." ...

"A bill making changes to a law that allows Ohioans to carry hidden guns was introduced on Tuesday with a major departure: a procedure to allow permit holders to keep their name from the media."

"Applicants would be able to sign a sworn statement saying the release of their personal information could lead to a criminal attack and prevent authorities from releasing their name."

"Sponsoring Rep. Jim Aslanides, a Coshocton Republican, last week proposed withholding the lists altogether but allowing reporters to ask the issuing sheriff if a person had a permit to carry a hidden gun. He said backers decided the new language would be more 'practical because public safety is at stake.' His bill has 46 cosponsors." ...
