BATON ROUGE, La., Sept. 22 -- The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and National Rifle Association (NRA) joined with individual gun owners in Louisiana Thursday morning, filing a motion in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana seeking a temporary restraining order to stop authorities in and around the City of New Orleans from seizing firearms from private citizens in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Something happened in New Orleans during the course of dealing with Hurricane Katrina that is being ignored by the mainstream press, and yet is as chilling as anything that has been reported: The police commissioner ordered the door-to-door confiscation of private firearms from law-abiding citizens, stating that only "law enforcement" would be allowed to possess arms.

For the story behind the story...
Arbitrary gun seizures, without warrant or probable cause, have been reported during the past three weeks since the Crescent City was devastated by the hurricane. In cases reported to SAF, police refused to give citizens receipts for their seized firearms. Earlier, SAF insisted that police account for all seized firearms, disclose their whereabouts, and explain how they will be returned to their rightful owners. Authorities have not responded.

 

Yale Daily News: Putting an End to Constitution Worship

"This past Saturday was something called "Constitution Day," ..."

"This holiday is another ridiculous example of the "sanctimonious reverence," as Thomas Jefferson termed it, in which many Americans hold the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence."

"The Constitution, while laying the foundation for the creation of a great American nation, was also very much a product of its time."

". . .Take the Second Amendment, which mentions the need for a well-regulated militia and conferring the right to bear arms. Because of the Framers' unclear wording, no one has been able to establish definitively whether this right belongs only to the militia or to individuals."

In addition to being one of the world's more audacious, provocative and expert filmmakers, Lars von Trier is a solid barometer of global anti-American sentiment. As unpopular as we may be, we will never rise above the level of von Trier's bile. And so we may be comforted by his films.

As author of the Thomas Vinterberg-directed "Dear Wendy," von Trier pursues the tack he took with "Dancer in the Dark," which assailed capital punishment, continued with "Dogville," which attacked hypocrisy, and has now focused on the gun, in all its phallic glory.

In researching my panel presentation for this weekend's 20th Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference in Los Angeles, I ran across this report from the California Wellness Foundation . It's a restrospective analysis of the CWF's 10-year grantmaking spree, the Violence Policy Initiative, during which $60 million was flung at various violence control measures. Much of the money went toward public relations campaigns against gun ownership in California.

 

DeWeese: American Life Under a National ID Card

"If you have done nothing wrong, then you have nothing to fear from these surveillance policies in the Patriot Act.”

“The Real ID bill that has just passed Congress and will establish a national ID card within the next 18 months will transform all state motor vehicle departments into agents of the federal government. They have now been told to install a high tech computer chip into every single drivers license in every single state. That chip will be used to carry either a finger print or voice print."

"And all the time the federal government has been passing this law mandating a national ID card – it vigorously denies it is doing it. It’s not mandatory, they tell us. It’s all voluntary."
 

A Culture in Which Children Are Taught to Hunt (3 Letters)

One of three letters to the editor in response to the article posted on Tuesday.
September 22, 2005
Re "Girls and Boys, Meet Nature. Bring Your Gun"
To the Editor:
It seems ironic that many Americans are uncomfortable with hunting because it seems cruel and involves killing animals, yet they don't give a second thought to sitting down and eating a burger.
Animals killed in the wild at least had the luxury of a life of relative freedom; animals we eat for dinner are generally confined to small, overcrowded cages.
The point is that most people care little whether the procedure is cruel or unkind. It's worth opposing only if it involves getting your hands dirty.

Beyond the shrillness and hysteria that ensued immediately in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the true goals and methodologies of America’s political establishment have become plain to see, at least to those with an honest interest in seeing them. Among conservatives, a horrendous and largely unnecessary tragedy signifies the need to admit mistakes, correct errors, and ultimately ensure that the situation is never repeated.

LANSING (AP) — Earlier this year, gun control advocates failed to block a Florida bill allowing people to use deadly force in the street to defend themselves.

The advocates vow not to let that happen in Michigan.

The battle in Michigan over the so-called deadly force legislation is important for both sides in the gun debate. It could open the doors to similar laws across the country — a top priority for the National Rifle Association — or stop the effort in its tracks.

This registration process will begin with the 2005-06 archery deer-hunting season, which starts on Oct. 1.

He caught me out in the open.
The mule deer buck was coming up from the sagebrush flats toward the same shallow saddle where I was heading. I was halfway up a steep hillside, struggling to keep a foothold on loose rock.

The buck's nose was down and he was making time. I first saw him at about 300 yards and the distance was shrinking fast.

Johannesburg

The Firearms Control Act of 2000 will play a pivotal role in the control of legal firearms and the reduction in the proliferation and availability of illegal firearms in SA. It also aims to address firearm-related crimes by removing illegally possessed firearms from society and ensuring effective control over firearms owned legally.

With the amnesty on illegal firearms, which ran for six months, the South African Police Service (SAPS) received and confiscated more than 100000 firearms, including illegally possessed firearms, legally possessed firearms, and firearms confiscated by the SAPS. The SAPS will continue to mount operations to remove illegal firearms.

Burnaby RCMP were kept busy responding to firearm incidents last week

On Sept. 15 at about 11:30 p.m., a man was waiting for a bus on Cameron Street, near Wal-Mart, when a male approached him and demanded to know what the victim was looking at, say police.

The suspect, a complete stranger, then pulled what looked like a gun out of a black duffle bag. The victim heard a shot and the suspect ran away. Luckily, the shot missed the victim, as officers found shotgun pellets in a nearby utility pole
