About 1.6 percent of gun purchases blocked last year
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"About 1.6 percent of applications for gun purchases were rejected last year by the nation's background check system, according to new Justice Department figures."

"The number of rejections was slightly below the 2002 level and continued a decline seen in recent years in the denial rate, the Bureau of Justice Statistics said in a report released Thursday."

"The bureau attributed the decline to more extensive background checks, involving more records and an increased number of databases – giving pause to potential purchasers who know they would be prohibited from getting their hands on a gun."

-------
This, of course, does not mean that these "prohibited" buyers didn't simply purchase a gun on the black market, where no background check is needed.

"Remember how gun control became a big issue in the 90s under Bill Clinton? With school shootings, militia groups, and assault weapons seemingly around every corner, the gun control movement made significant gains, including passing an assault weapons ban as part of the Brady Law. Then, after a while, a series of events lead to the momentum shifting in the other direction. Hell, even Sarah Brady was found buying a gun for her son." ...

"But the whipped cream on top of this Second Amendment Sundae came with Kerry not only accepting the shotgun, but being photographed with it and being described as a 'pro-gun Democrat.' ..."

"John Miller, commanding officer of the LAPD bureau that handles anti-terrorism activities, was detained at Los Angeles International Airport today when a department-issued .38 was found in his luggage."

"Miller was off-duty and traveling with his family when he was briefly detained by Transportation Security Administration agents."

"He had not told anyone about the Smith & Wesson firearm that he is authorized to carry, according to the department's Media Relations section."

"Miller and his family were allowed to continue on to their flight after the 12:15 p.m. incident."

"If, as the anti-gunners will argue, the ban has somehow equated to a decline in murders committed with the assault weapons — though they have actually been on sale the whole time — then it could be argued the ban actually was ineffective. In fact, a 1999 report by the National Institute for Justice concluded, 'the banned guns are used in only a small fraction of gun crimes; even before the ban, most of them rarely turned up in law enforcement agencies’ requests to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) to trace the sales histories of guns recovered in criminal investigations.'

Liberty Belles: "AW" Victory No End to Gun Control

"Last week's repeal of the ban on selected semi-automatic rifles bearing certain cosmetic features was a huge victory for those who support our Second Amendment liberties. Clearly, when gun-rights advocates united on a national level, we were able to effect a positive change worthy of a weeklong celebration."

"This is not the end of our troubles, however. Gun-banners will be back during the next legislative session to enact even tougher semi-auto bans at the state, county, and city levels. Gun-rights advocates will find themselves divided and, quite possibly, conquered at the local levels due to a lack of preparedness, lack of resources, and lack of individual activism. This is the unfortunate reality of fighting for our Second Amendment rights. The fight never ends and the gun-banners absolutely will not stop until you are disarmed."

The first two paragraphs alone should tell you how hysterical, paranoid, bigoted and uninformed this particular writer is. You can send a letter to the editor of this rag here.

"Letting the assault weapons ban expire shows what can happen when a crafty Congress and president sell out to the unscrupulous National Rifle Association."

"The NRA, arms manufacturers, arms dealers and criminals win. The public loses. Now every criminal and mentally deranged person can have access, albeit illegally, to weapons matching the firepower of a well-armed policeman."
 

Gun Control: Have We Gone Too Far?

"It took three shootings over the course of ten years to spur Diane Feinstein, the Grand Dame of California politics, into spearheading the 1994 Assault Weapons Act."

" 'It was the ultimate shock,' Feinstein said of the final spree that claimed six lives in a San Francisco law office. 'Someone comes in, aggrieved, and goes right through the place.' "

"And you know what? Such a response makes sense. After all, when 34 people are killed in three totally unrelated situations years apart, what other alternative is there than stripping away the rights of law-abiding citizens?" ...

"Gun control is the ultimate extension of the 'government-as-parent' scenario which posits that Americans are either too stupid or too ignorant to take care of themselves. While I won't argue that our nation is plagued with an overabundance of idiocy, it is not the responsibility of the government to baby-sit everyone and make sure they don't stick a fork in a light socket."

From the S&W web site:

If the 1994 Assault Weapon Act is not renewed by Congress, any consumer purchasing one of the following new Smith & Wesson handguns at retail between August 15, 2004 and December 31, 2004 that did not include two high capacity magazines at the time of purchase will receive from Smith & Wesson, two high capacity magazines for their specific handgun (subject to federal, state and local restrictions) at no charge upon submission of the handguns model number, serial number and a copy of either the dated receipt or Federal Form 4473.

"Whether the city expands its gun law to allow shooting at an indoor range appears headed for the ballot box."

"A group of residents delivered 33 petitions with 734 signatures to the city today, asking that the issue be placed on the ballot."

"Their efforts are meant to block Shooter's Supply Inc., a 16-year-old Loveland business, from opening a range in a vacant church and warehouse on Loveland-Madeira Road."

"Loveland council passed an amendment last month that allowed guns to be fired inside a target range, despite resident complaint that the range was too close to homes and schools, and that it would present safety and image problems for Loveland."

"Filing the petitions stopped the new law from taking effect."

A spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department said Lee was going through a security check point at O'Hare just after 12 p.m. Saturday when the X-ray monitor showed an image of a gun inside a bag Lee was planning to bring on board a plane.

The bag was searched and a revolver was recovered, the spokesperson said. Lee was subsequently placed under arrest by Chicago officers. He is being held in lieu of bail and has a preliminary hearing in Cook County Circuit Court tomorrow.

"Mr. Traverso and others have blindly inculcated an 'Assault Weapon' with an evil which doesn't exist. Likewise, there is the impression that there was in fact an Assault Weapons Ban to start with. That is not true, all of the supposedly evil weapons mentioned in the ban were not rendered illegal. Rather the future production of their exact models were barred unless they contained no more than two of several alleged evil features, bayonet lug, detachable magazines, folding stock, grenade launcher, prominent pistol grip extending below the weapon and flash suppressor. The AWB made it illegal for civilians to purchase and own high capacity pistol or rifle magazines holding over 10 rounds which were manufactured after September 1994. Preban units were still legal. All these potentially new 'evil items' could only be held and used by police and military. If one wishes to be paranoid, one would ask, against whom?"

"In short, on Monday it was business as usual for most American gun vendors. Newspapers around the country ended up with headlines like: 'Gun Sellers Say Ban Never Really Made Much Difference Anyway.' "

"But those pieces missed the real significance of the day. Even if the assault weapons ban didn't change the situation on the ground for Thorne and his ilk, it's been a metaphorical thorn in the side of the NRA for 10 years. Its uneventful sunsetting is the capstone of an almost absurdly successful four years for the National Rifle Association."

The family of a mentally-impaired man who died while in police custody after police used a stun gun on him is suing the manufacturer of the gun. The family is seeking $570 million from the Taser International after 35-year-old David Glowczenski was shocked nine times with the 50,000-volt Taser gun.

Taser markets its stun guns as "nonlethal" but the company has been mired in controversy since it began selling the products in the late 1990s. A recent Arizona Republic investigation found over 50 have died in police custody since 1999 after having a Taser used on them. The Republic says that at least five of those deaths could be attributed to the use of Tasers and the rest are inconclusive.

As I read the editorial, as with much of the debate on this issue, I couldn't help but wonder if gun control advocates even listen to themselves speak. ..."

But wait. How can criminals be using assault weapons when they are banned? ..."

A TEAM of armed robbers tied up two security guards in a western Sydney warehouse overnight before fleeing in a Mercedes loaded with stolen goods.

Five men, each armed with a firearm, forced two guards to take them into a Parkview Street warehouse at Homebush West at about 12.15am (AEST) today, a New South Wales police spokesman said.

It is believed the men, wearing dark clothes, gloves and balaclavas, made the guards walk through the building before tying them up.

The robbers then loaded electrical goods into a white truck, which they had arrived in, and a silver Mercedes sedan and escaped, he said.

The guards, who were uninjured, managed to free themselves and contact police.
 

CA: Gov. Schwarzenegger Bows to NRA, Vetoes Gun Safety Bills; Would Have Protected Children From Gun Violence

"In a bid to curry favor from the NRA gun lobby, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has vetoed two gun safety bills that would have protected children from gun violence."

"The bills, authored by Senator Jack Scott (D-Pasadena), who lost his son to gun violence, would have held gun owners responsible if they left guns and ammunition easily accessible to children and required handgun ammunition buyers to provide proof of age and identity. The bills were backed by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence united with the Million Mom March and supported by law enforcement."

-------
Several points are glaringly obvious here.

1 - The Brady Bunch is attempting to convince us that somehow they know Schwarzenegger's motive for vetoing yet more immoral, unconstitutional gun ban legislation that would punish innocent, law-abiding gun owners as trying to curry favor with the NRA. Schwarzenegger has already proven that he doesn't care about garnering the NRA's OK by publicly stating his support for the AW ban and outlawing .50 caliber BMG's.

2 - Brady and crew are STILL not above using the blood of innocent children to justify clearly immoral laws, as if the fact that Scott lost a child to "gun violence" gives him moral authorization to treat every gun owner like a criminal.

Analyzing The 2nd Amendment

"Does the Second Amendment guarantee a right to states rather than an individual right to choose to own firearms? One clue to the answer is looking at who supports each position. The few law-review articles supporting the states'-right view all come from advocates, most of them employed by or associated with anti-gun groups."

"Yet, intellectual honesty compels many far more important scholars to accept the standard model of the Amendment as an individual's right despite personal anti-gun feelings. Famed constitutional lawyer and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, who defended O.J. Simpson and Claus von Bulow, is a former ACLU national board member who admits he "hates" guns and wants the Second Amendment repealed. Yet, says Dershowitz: 'Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like.' "

I agree that President Bush caved in to the National Rifle Association ["Gun Ban Advocates Fault Bush," Metro in Brief, Sept. 15], but it is disingenuous of Bryan Miller to hold up a MAC-10 submachine gun as an example of the weapons that will be on the streets because of the expiration of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994.

The MAC-10 is a fully automatic weapon. The 1994 ban related solely to semiautomatic weapons. The difference is critical. Automatic weapons continue to fire any rounds available via the magazine as long as the trigger is held down. Semiautomatic weapons fire one round per trigger pull. Automatic weapons fall under a set of laws dating to the 1930s.

Mr. Miller had a good point, and he had no need to cheat to make it.

"The government plans to soon begin testing a new security technology that could give airport screeners detailed images of a passenger's body through his or her clothing."

"The Transportation Security Administration will launch a pilot program in several airports of 'backscatter' X-ray machines, which use low-radiation X-rays to produce a black and white image that clearly shows the person's body and any metal, plastic or organic materials, such as marijuana, hidden beneath clothing. ..."

"The agency said the machines to be used will be modified to produce less explicit images and protect passengers' privacy. '... Obviously, one of the major issues is the privacy of passengers,' said TSA spokeswoman Yolanda Clark."
