The Dangers of Democracy
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"In order to understand why the right to keep and bear arms is crucial to a free society, it is first essential to realize that true freedom cannot coexist with coercion – even if said coercion is perpetuated by a majority rule – democracy. By its very nature, democracy is mob rule – the many imposing their will on the few. And by its very nature, democracy is inconsistent with freedom. In a democracy your rights can be trampled by a simple majority vote – without regard for objective, moral principles of right and wrong. And as Ilana astutely explains in her razor-sharp condemnation of Tony Blair’s Britain, 'A right that can’t be defended… is a right that exists only in name.' "

"I killed my first deer on an October morning two days after my fourteenth birthday. I was hunting on my grandmother's ranch in south-central Colorado, and I can still see that deer, ghost-gray in the dawn, its form more like smoke than animal."

"I remember how my chest was tight and my arms and legs shook. I remember the shot and I can still see the young buck fall. And I still feel the mixture of sadness and elation--a strange cocktail that I have sipped many times since. I do not remember much about the rifle that I shot." ...

"It is clear to me that there is a widening gulf in the sporting community. When we elect a president this fall, there will be those who vote wildlife and those who vote gun. With 47 million sporting votes at stake, and two candidates vying for 5 percent of the voters in crucial states where a lot of hunters live, the ramifications are huge." ...

... "Last year, some at the G8 summit meeting floated the idea of a global tax on arms sales, including – at Chirac's suggestion – a tax on gun purchases by individuals."

"In a speech at the annual meeting of the 'Group of Eight,' or G8, da Silva pushed the arms-sales tax as a scheme whereby the world's wealthiest nations could fund efforts to eliminate world hunger." ...

"Calling the Brazilian leader's proposal 'forceful and convincing,' Chirac was reluctant to back a levy on weapons manufacturers in France and elsewhere, but suggested a global tax on firearms purchases made by individuals, said the report."

"Memo to off-duty cops: Don't let your drinking buddies play with your weapon."

"A Monterey County, Calif., sheriff's deputy is in deep trouble for allegedly doing just that, reports KSBW-TV of Monterey."

"Deputy Sean Brooks was drinking at a Palo Alto bar when he passed his sidearm to another man at the bar, a convicted felon, prosecutors say."

"Witnesses said the gun's laser sight was pointed at the backs of several people in the bar. Local police were called, and both men were arrested outside."

"'This is something that has bothered me since I first heard about it,' Monterey County Sheriff Mike Kanalakis told the TV station. 'This is not the kind of conduct that I want out of any of our employees. It is disgraceful if it's true.'" ...

"An off-duty Chicago police officer was arrested and charged with battery after he punched and broke the nose of a fellow officer working security at Saturday's White Sox game , police said Tuesday."

"But according to his attorney, Joseph Lullo Jr., 40, a nine-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department, was acting in self-defense. Gus Munoz, Lullo's attorney, said the security guard and police officer got into a fight and the guard was choking Lullo toward the end of the Sox's extra-innings win over the Detroit Tigers at U.S. Cellular Field."

"'He had every right to defend himself,' Munoz said. 'Mr. Lullo reacted just like anyone else if they were being choked.'" ...

So we have either an out of control cop working as security, or an out of control cop assaulting him. Either way, do we really want men like these to have a monopoly on guns?

"The 28-page order issued Monday by U.S. District Judge Alan Gold opens the door to an appeal by four officers sentenced to prison following a 2003 trial and the sentencing of three officers convicted in an April retrial. Two other turncoat officers are awaiting sentencing on their guilty pleas."

"The judge said new eyewitness evidence offered by the defense did not "undermine my confidence in the verdict" since nobody saw a gun right after the wounding of a homeless man and an officer's fingerprints were on the planted gun." ...

"Kathleen Thompson ... was killed on November 6, 1971, when she was hit in the chest by a high velocity bullet."

"The possibility that a murder charge could be laid against a member of the Royal Green Jackets - known only as Soldier D - emerged after a hearing in the High Court in Belfast."

"Lawyers for Mrs Thompson applied for a judicial review of the failure of the DPP to provide 'full and sufficient' reasons for not prosecuting Soldier D who admitted firing 18 shots during a midnight raid." ...

"STUART CAESAR'S recent letter demonstrates an unfortunate reality regarding the public's understanding of the Second Amendment - "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." It states nothing about defending property, country or hunting. It was put into place because of the experience at that time. Times have changed." ...

"Guns don’t kill people. People kill people with guns."

"The assault weapons ban, which limits 19 kinds of semi-automatic weapons, expired Sept. 13. The House of Representatives never brought it to a vote."

"Behind the ban’s expiration is none other than the National Rifle Association (NRA), an organization aggressive and funded enough to keep Republicans in its pocket and Democrats running scared."

"The NRA, rather than politicians fighting for the rights of their hunting constituents, is responsible for the virtually unchallenged death of the ban." ...

Well, I would like to think that the Second Amendment Foundation, KABA.com, Grass Roots North Carolina, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, Gun Owners of America, Liberty Belles, Armed Females of America, Second Amendment Sisters, and numerous other organizations and individuals who called, e-mailed, faxed, wrote and spoke to their representatives might have had something to do with it too.
 

Leathal Weapons

"In 1994, President Clinton signed into law the ban of 19 types of dangerous assault weapons. There was a stipulation, or "sunset clause," which stated the ban would be lifted in 10 years if Congress didn't renew it. President Bush claims he would sign the bill renewing the ban if it made its way across his desk. Unbelievably, these assault weapons that will now flood the streets of the United States are the same type our military is trying so hard to get off the streets of Iraq."

KABA NOTE: TRIPE!

"In 1994 the Internet wasn't commonplace in every home, providing people with unlimited access to just about any type of information they desire. The Internet has also become a tool for the unethical and even the criminal to market products such as legalized guns and medications, without really knowing to whom they are selling these products. ... It only stands to reason that there will be opportunists offering assault weapons like Uzis, AK-47s and TEC-9s online without giving a second thought as to who the purchaser is on the other side of the screen. ..." ...

Funny, I just bought a TEC-9 online and the transfer went through a FFL, just as required by federal law.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A 16-year-old girl opened fire on her alleged rapist in Tijuana on Tuesday.

The shooting took place in the La Presa district. The girl told authorities she shot her cousin's husband four times when he entered her home.

The teen said she didn't tell anyone after the 39-year-old man raped her two weeks ago. She told authorities that she was alone when he tried to go into her house Tuesday.

The girl reportedly used her father's gun to shoot the man, who remains in the hospital Wednesday. There is no word on his condition.

"In watching the federal assault weapons ban on semi-automatic rifles melt away last week, I wondered what would be next."

"What other personal safeguards are we going to lose?"

"While we are focusing a great deal of our energies on maintaining the 'sanctity of marriage' by blocking attempts to allow gays to marry, and while we cower in our homes from fear of another terrorist attack, we are saying virtually nothing about how our neighbors can now buy one or more of the 19 semi-automatic rifles that were banned for a decade."

"Having those weapons in the hands of scared homeowners frightens me more than a married gay couple or terrorists striking Rupp Arena." ...

It must be terrible, living in such fear that your friends and neighbors will suddenly turn into homicidal maniacs.
 

Congress right not to extend gun ban

"For a change, Congress did something sensible. It refused to extend the so-called assault weapons ban, thereby enraging the loony left, the uninformed and the fearful."

"The term assault weapon was coined so as to create fear in the minds of the fearful and uniformed. In fact, the so-called assault weapon is the same as many hunting rifles. It shoots each time the trigger is pulled - one trigger pull, one shot. It does not spray shots when the trigger is held down, which is what some gun control proponents would like you to believe. A weapon that does that is a fully automatic weapon and can really be called an assault weapon. What was banned were semiautomatic weapons that resembled a military weapon. Basically the ban had to do with the appearance rather the performance of the weapon." ...

"I heard John Kerry blathering about how he, as a hunter, never felt the need for an AK-47 or an Uzi. Interesting observation there, but I know of no hunters who feel that need. Nobody hunts with full-auto rifles like the AK47, and the Uzi is a small-caliber weapon unsuitable for hunting."

"Kerry then went on to make statements about how, since the "assault weapons" ban was allowed to die, now people could go out and buy AK-47s and Uzis if they wanted to. Wrong."

"Real, honest AK-47s and Uzis are capable of selective switching to fully automatic fire, and that is the key element in defining an assault weapon. These full-auto weapons have been banned since the 1930s." ...

... "Specifics aside, what the assault-weapons ban really did was make injury prevention a national priority, medical experts said."

"'For a decade, we had a national consensus that included the policymakers that we had to be careful, at least a bit careful, about what kind of weapons we put out there,' said Dr. Katherine Kaufer Christoffel, a professor of pediatrics and preventive medicine at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine."

"'What the elimination of the assault-weapons ban says to me is we're going back to viewing this as a purely criminal-justice issue and not a public-health issue, and I think that's a mistake, a turn in the wrong direction.'" ...

"Gun violence isn't something that happens in other communities - it happens right here."

"You remember it - newspapers around the world carried the story. It was the day after Christmas in 2000, just a few miles from where you live. A 42-year-old employee of Edgewater Technology, located in Wakefield, took an AK-47 assault rifle from his gym bag and gunned down seven of his co-workers."

"In Malden earlier this month, officials believe that an assault weapon was used in a local bank robbery."

"With new threats to our communities every day and a greater burden being placed on law enforcement, the last thing we need is to weaken the ability of the police to keep assault weapons out of the hands of criminals and terrorists." ...

"For some law enforcement officials and gun shop owners, the hoopla created by the expiration of the federal assault weapons ban on Sept. 13, is merely much ado about nothing."

"The prediction among some anti-firearms activists, lawmakers and media was that previously-denied firearm aficionados would swarm to gun shops and pawn shops to purchase AK-47s and UZIs or more of the 19 semiautomatic assault weapons and gun accessories prohibited by the Clinton administration in 1994."

'The only rush about assault weapons have been from the media,' said Sanford Abrams, vice president of the Maryland Licensed Firearms Dealers Association. 'There's been no rush from customers and I don't expect them to.'" ...

"Sept. 15 -- One man dead from gunshot wounds. He was 24."

"Sept. 19 -- One man dead from gunshot wounds. He was also 24. Later that same day, a 33-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman are wounded in another shooting." ...

"The one common factor among the victims is the way they died. They were all victims of guns."

"Concerning the sunset provisions of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, the multitude of police officers and law enforcement organizations who asked for an extension of the ban are correct. We are under constant alerts to the threat of terrorism, and although people may scoff at the idea of terrorists getting their hands on an assault weapon, the infamous sniper John Allen Muhammad in Maryland was using a .223-caliber Bushmaster XM15 assault rifle."

"It could be argued that the ban was mostly on cosmetic issues such as bayonets, etc. However, a clip holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition is more of an assault weapon than a hunting or self-defense item." [emphasis added] ...

"As you know, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill to ban .50 caliber rifles in California. This is unacceptable, particularly when lawmakers cannot refer to one incident in which a crime was committed in the United States with this rifle. California lawmakers, in lockstep with their gun-ban buddies, have suggested that such a law will "keep guns out of the hands of terrorists." As if the cowards in the California legislature and Handgun Control could wield any power whatsoever over the monsters whose brutal, murderous actions have instigated a war against the United States of America."

"No. This law was written to further restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens and will have zero effect in reducing or preventing crime. ..." ...

"Speaker-elect Bill Stovall has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association, again. The NRA not only endorsed Rep. Bill Stovall for re-election, it also gave him the highest grade possible: an A+."

"'I am pleased to have the endorsement of the NRA,' said Stovall. 'As a hunter and fisherman, I will always work to preserve our Second Amendment rights.'"

"Stovall is seeking his third term in District 59. He will be the Speaker of the House in the Arkansas legislature. Stovall's voting record in the House has earned him recognition by the NRA as a true friend of sportsmen." ...

I am not trying to pick on Mr. Stovall, I know nothing about the man, but I was struck by something reading this article. Why do these people always talk about the Second in the context of hunting instead of fundamental, inalienable, G-d given, personal, human and civil rights?

"Rep. Mark Souder, R-3rd, is sticking his nose in the District of Columbia’s business by proposing legislation to erase the city’s gun ban, the city’s representative to Congress, mayor and a major business group contend."

"'It’s a hateful thing to do,' Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton said Tuesday. Mayor Anthony Williams told House leaders he takes 'sharp exception to this wholly inappropriate intrusion into what is clearly a local matter.' The business organization, which includes the Chamber of Commerce, said Souder’s bill 'is the last thing our city needs right now.'" ...

Doubtless the Sheriff and deputies who were complicit in the beating and castration of blacks, and the lynching of 3 voter registration activists in Mississippi felt that those incidents were "clearly a local matter", but when local officials routinely and consistently violate people's civil rights, then other steps must be taken.
