Unarmed and Dangerous: John Kerry and the Second Amendment
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"The NRA should thank John Kerry for exposing three tragic flaws in the gun control debate:"

"· Gun control legislation does not reduce crime because—surprise!—criminals do not obey the law.
· Gun control legislation does not work because existing gun laws are not enforced.
· Liberals pushing for more gun laws on Capitol Hill—like the Assault Weapons Ban—have no actual knowledge of the weapons they desire to ban."

"In fact, Senator Kerry was kind enough to provide a personal example of two of these flaws in the same week."

The emphasis of this year's Gun Rights Policy Conference is knowing who the friends of the Second Amendment are as you prepare to enter the voting booth.

"We further realize that having a firm philosophical grounding about the importance of our vote is paramount to ensuring that politicians do not continue killing the Second Amendment."

"And we appreciate that in order to be truly informed this election season, we have to look beyond the propaganda, beyond the media’s feeble attempts to obfuscate the truth and beyond the shrill, hysterical shrieking of Michael Moore and the talking heads of the media."

"Only the informed, educated and rational vote of every gun owner and gun rights advocate will help the demise of gun bans."

"The West Virginia State Rifle and Pistol Association is endorsing President Bush because America needs a president who always respects our Second Amendment rights. West Virginia voters aren't going to trust a candidate who came to our state and pranced around the stage with a shot gun that he once supported banning. That was after Kerry went to Wisconsin and talked about hunting deer while crawling around on his belly. The reality is that Kerry has an 'F' rating from the NRA and deserves an F' rating when it comes to his credibility among West Virginia sportsmen."

"We ought to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them. That’s why I’m for instant background checks at gun shows. I’m for trigger locks. I think we ought to raise the age at which juveniles can have a gun. ..." -- President George W. Bush

"Sen. John Kerry, a hunter who supported the recently expired assault weapons ban, frequently tells audiences he has never met anyone who wanted to use an AK-47 to shoot a deer. But it is not clear what Kerry does with the Chinese assault rifle he told Outdoor Life magazine he kept in his personal collection."

"In interviews appearing in the October issue of Outdoor Life, Kerry and President Bush were asked whether they were gun owners, and, if so, to identify their favorite gun."

"Bush named the Weatherby 20-gauge (although he gave a slightly different answer in a separate chat with Field and Stream magazine.) Kerry's answer was more complicated."

" 'My favorite gun is the M-16 that saved my life and that of my crew in Vietnam,' Kerry told the magazine. 'I don't own one of those now, but one of my reminders of my service is a Communist Chinese assault rifle.' "

-------
Notice that the only desperate defense this article could dig up is Bob Ricker's half-hearted "he's ... one of the most credible individuals when it comes to ... what it takes to keep weapons of war off the street."

Meanwhile, the writer couldn't resist taking a swipe at Bush...

"Bush does not have such high-powered weapons but seems unable to pick a consistent favorite. To Field and Stream, he said, 'My favorite gun is the first gun that my dad gave me, which is a Winchester .22 pump, Model 61.' "

"He also mentioned the Weatherby he chose for Outdoor Life, saying that it was a 'custom-made gun presented to me by the CEO of the company, Mr. Weatherby.' "

"Tasers, which temporarily incapacitate people with an electric shock."

"Law enforcement officials and stun gun maker Taser International of Scottsdale, Ariz., argue that Tasers are a safer and more humane way to subdue suspects or mentally deranged individuals than guns, batons, pepper spray or brute force." ...

"But civil rights groups are alarmed that some agencies allow officers liberal use of Tasers rather than limiting their use to situations where a life is in danger."

"In keeping with the mindset of the 'Chicken Little' folks in the news business, at least for a few more seconds I would like to say the end is near.
That's right, we're all in for a dramatic rise in murders, assaults, lootings and bad times in general! The reason? The 10-year ban on assault weapons expired on Sept. 13."

"According to the 'infotainment' folks, formerly the credible news media, that are more interested in ratings than unbiased factual reporting, this country will now become saturated with military style assault weapons. These guns now will be easier for terrorists to obtain; film at 11 o'clock."

"An accurate name for the measure would have been "the assault rifle features ban" because that's all it really prohibited."

"The description of the ban by some politicians and media outlets as a measure that kept automatic weapons off American streets is grossly misleading."

"Automatic weapons, pre- and post-ban, are only obtainable by a special license that in effect gives federal authorities the right to search the gun owner's home whenever they want."

"As for whether the United States should ever enact a real assault weapons ban, that is a matter that divides the nation along typical Second Amendment lines."
 

Mad science: Gun-law demise worries 'health experts'

"Health experts are concerned that the demise of the assault weapons ban will result in more gunshot victims and increased trauma costs, CBS.MarketWatch.Com reported Sept. 22." ...

"It probably comes as little surprise that this report comes to us from CBS News."

"One thing is for certain, the doctor truly doesn't understand the law, since he claims lifting the ban will 'leave weapons of mass destruction in the hands of kids and criminals.' Not one kid or criminal will now be able to purchase a rifle that was formerly banned, and if this doctor doesn't know that, he shouldn't be providing comment on the subject."
 

David Ropeik: Steady drumbeat of fear creates a threat to public health

"I wonder whether the politicians who are using fear to get themselves elected would stop if they knew the harm they may be doing to people's health. Real physical harm. Making people sick. Perhaps even killing them. Not intentionally, of course. But this kind of 'be afraid' message does more than encourage people to think that you are the candidate who will make them safe. It creates stress and may be at least as much of a threat to public health as terrorism itself." ...

"...Around the 2002 July 4th holiday -- the first post-9/11 national birthday celebration -- government warnings suggested an increased likelihood of terrorism. FBI records indicate that requests for handgun purchases in the latter part of June were one-third higher than average. Own a gun if you choose, but let's be honest. The likelihood that a gun will protect you from a terrorist attack is low. But having a gun around does increase the chance of an accident."

-------
How disturbing to know that there are still people around who rely on Kellerman's discredited study on gun ownership in the home to push a political agenda.

Facts are:

According to the CDC, in 2001 there were 101,537 unintentional injury deaths in the US.

802 of those deaths were firearm-related.

That's less than one percent.

However, had there been just one armed person on any of the 9-11 flights able to confront box cutter-wielding terrorists, the outcome of the attacks may have been different.

"As gun researcher Gary Kleck points out, nearly all studies of firearm-caused police fatalities put those killed by SAWs anywhere from zero to five percent of the total. In other words, officers killed by SAW-wielding criminals are an extreme rarity."

"Do the high-capacity magazine weapons pose a greater danger to police than other firearms? Common sense indicates that a criminal with a 10-round firearm is virtually as dangerous as one with, say, a 20-round magazine. FBI data bear this out: 85 percent of all victim officers killed by firearms never fire a single shot. ..." ...

"Too bad. The assault weapon boogeyman is yet another beautiful liberal theory mugged by a gang of facts."

"Let's be perfectly candid about the demise after 10 years of the dearly departed federal 'ban' on 'assault weapons.' It didn't really ban anything."

"Ask any kid on any high-crime street in America. They can tell you."

"Yes, crime rates overall took a welcome dip while the law was in effect in the 1990s, but that dip can be attributed to many reasons, including aggressive arrests and prosecutions. Meanwhile, the supply of heavy-duty weapons was hardly effected, thanks to the law's limits and loopholes." ...

"Yet, most Americans want to do something, however modest it may be, to at least slow down the high tide of high-capacity weapons flooding this country. A University of Pennsylvania National Annenberg Election Survey in April found that 71 percent of respondents, including 64 percent of those in households with guns, supported a renewal of the ban."

-------
How many of these 71 percent actually understand that these weapons are involved in a miniscule percentage of gun crimes? And how many are simply reacting to propaganda and blood in the press and emotionalist appeals by gun banners?

The commander of the Los Angeles Police Department's Counter-Terrorism Bureau was detained on Thursday at Los Angeles Airport after a gun was found in his carry-on luggage.

John Miller was allowed to board the flight with his family after the weapon was confiscated by airport police, a spokeswoman said.

"As you might imagine, he was extremely embarrassed, also his family was embarrassed, and quite frankly so is the department," Bratton said.

------
Embarrassed, but not arrested. Of course, had he not been part of the "in" crowd, the elite whose rights are more important than the average citizen who pays their salary, he would have likely been charged and kept from his destination.

FULL TEXT BELOW:


State Police have filed first-degree rape charges against a Caledonia, Livingston County, police officer who was previously charged with unlawfully dealing with a child. The new charges were announced Friday against David A. Witherspoon, 49, of Mumford. Witherspoon, a 16-year officer, also was charged with facilitating a sex offense with a controlled substance.

He was arraigned in York Town Court and sent to the Livingston County Jail on $50,000 bail.

On Aug. 13, troopers charged Witherspoon with unlawfully dealing with a child for allegedly giving alcohol to an 18-year-old female.

"Guns that are purchased and carried legally are not usually involved in crimes, law enforcement officials say."

" 'A lot of the criminal element doesn't go to your local gun store and get a gun, nor do they come to the Sheriff's Department and get a gun permit,' said Tulare County sheriff's Lt. Keith Douglas. 'A large amount of weapons that are used in crimes, the people that have them don't have permits.' "

"Xavier Garcia, manager of Best Jewelry and Loan in Visalia, said the process for getting a gun, including the waiting period, helps prevent criminals from buying guns."

-------
It prevents criminals from purchasing guns legally. That's why a black market exists and is so successful. That's why the vast majority of criminals don't bother with bureaucratic hoops when purchasing firearms.

"Officer Brian Twedt never used a weapon to threaten Clovis neighbor Holly Louen or anyone else, Judge R.L. 'Chip' Putnam said; instead, he used his position as a police office to intimidate her."

"Because a police officer needs a gun to do the job, Putnam said, it's common sense to allow Twedt to be armed."

"The NRA, which has fought gun-control bills for decades, cited nine votes Sen. John Kerry cast in favor of banning various types of semiautomatic rifles, his vote to hold gun manufacturers liable for criminal use of firearms, support of waiting periods for gun purchases and his vote to let the federal government keep a database of gun owners."

"As for Martinez, who is battling former Education Commissioner Betty Castor in a tight race to succeed Sen. Bob Graham, the NRA says it's important to keep a Republican majority in the Senate."

"Some politicians and gun control advocates have tried to push the idea that because the ban expired, Americans are somehow less safe than they were the day before. They are pushing to have either the same ban put back in place, or a different, possibly more restrictive, ban passed." ...

"The controversy and confusion about the assault weapons ban is instructive about what gun manufacturers, and other industries for that matter, face from government regulation and public perception."

"Scattered across western Illinois are several gun companies, including ArmaLite and Springfield Armory. The two Geneseo companies, which sell guns to private individuals and government entities, provide more than 200 jobs."

"Westrom said there are always concerns about what will be coming next from government, although governments themselves are a major customer of ArmaLite."

Falls Church tries to circumvent VA state law.

-------
"The Federal Gun Free School Zone Act ('GFSZA') has already been held as unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court (United States v. Lopez, 514 U.S. 549 (1995), which held that 'The Act exceeds Congress' Commerce Clause authority). Congress subsequently revised the GFSZA without fixing the basic flaw. The revised statute is currently in effect awaited a judicial test.' "


"The GFSZA specifically exempts persons with carry permits from the act, so the new Falls Church policy is null and void for permit holders under all conditions. Here is the language from 18 U.S.C. § 922 (q)(2)(B)(ii) that exempts permit holders from the GFSZ act:"

"if the individual possessing the firearm is licensed to do so by the State in which the school zone is located or a political subdivision of the State, and the law of the State or political subdivision requires that, before an individual obtains such a license, the law enforcement authorities of the State or political subdivision verify that the individual is qualified under law to receive the license;"

If you want to see the height of revolting bigotry, take a look at this article. It begins with smarmy prejudice...

"Once again, the gun fetishists who with their overflowing coffers and braying voices tend to drown out anyone who tries to talk reason in the United States have won out over common sense. ..."

Continues with disingenuous strawman arguments that with their shrillness drown out the fact that no terrorist has used any military-style weapon to commit crimes in the US...

"The day before the September 11 commemorations, residents of Washington and New York found full-page ads in their morning papers to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary, arguing that lifting the ban makes it easier for organisations like Al Qaeda to obtain guns for their terrorist purposes. ..."

Continues with more insulting generalizations...

"Americans, as we know, have a kind of love affair with guns, and have incorporated that sentiment into many aspects of their popular culture. ..."

And ends with the kind of smarmy arrogance that comes from never knowing freedom, not caring about it and hiding behind armed guards while telling the rest of the peons how to live...

"...It's not easy to tell an arrogant, self-centred and self-willed superpower what to do, but America runs on business, and anything that disrupts the smooth operation of that business gets results."

"Falls Church City Manager, Dan McKeever, according to an article Thursday in the Falls Church News-Press (link to article is below) said he has found a way to ban citizens for carrying guns in City buildings and at City events. He is apparently angry at the General Assembly and wants to use the Federal Gun-Free School Zone (GFSZ) act to ban guns carried by law-abiding citizens. He says that there is a school near City Hall, the main library, and other government facilities and thus the 1,000-foot perimeter around the school would prevent someone from carry at those locations!"
