"Laura S. Washington has penned another sad, pathetic, drooling diatribe against gun owners. We're well-organized, able to mount a rapid response, and apparently, we're mostly 'white men from suburban and rural areas.'"

"I would beg to differ with that assessment, and I'm sure so would Kenn Blanchard and thousands of other intelligent, law-abiding African American men who understand the importance of freedom."

"Apparently, Laura's ignorance just doesn't end. A few weeks ago, I wrote her a pretty polite letter explaining the glaring errors and twisted facts in her column. I got nothing but a canned response about how she appreciates my taking the time to write." ...

"Tomorrow we will be receiving 28 Maine Lobsters overnighted from Bushmaster. This is a promotion that they have done for quite a few years, but we have never got this many. Who do I have to thank for this...none other than Carolyn McCarthy D-NY. We have sold more so-called 'assault weapons' than we have standard rifles this year with the new and improved Assault Weapons Ban, which is looming, that was introduced by McCarthy."

"A common saying a decade ago in a gun shop was; there has never been better gun salesman than Bill Clinton. With his frivolous Assault Weapons Ban that was supposed to reduce crime, I am still trying to figure out how a banning a bayonet lug reduced crime. ..." ...

... "Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., who chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, lauded Sullivan's 'distinguished career in public service.'"

"Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., introduced Sullivan at the hearing, praising both his professional abilities and his character."

"'It is a job that he's proven more than qualified and capable of performing,' Kerry said."

"Sullivan also faced some grilling from Kennedy and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., about whether the ATF would be willing to release more gun tracing data, a move the senators said could help state and local law agencies fight gun crime."

"Sullivan said there has been confusion about what data ATF could share, but he said he hopes ATF will provide more data." ...

"A bill inspired by the Virginia Tech shootings is bogged down by objections over funding and who should be barred from buying a firearm."

"The bill would tighten requirements for states to share gun purchasers' mental health information with the federal government."

"Majority Democrats in the Senate were poised as early as this past Monday to bring the bill to a vote until Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., objected."

"Coburn says he has concerns that billions of dollars of new spending in the bill is not paid for by cuts in other programs. And he says the bill does not pay for appeals by veterans or other Americans who feel they have been wrongly barred from buying a gun." ...

"Analysts at Wedbush Morgan initiate coverage of Smith & Wesson Holding Corp ... with a 'strong buy' rating. The 12-month target price is set to $26."

"In a research note published this morning, the analysts mention that the company has been gaining share in the pistols market, with the highly successful launch of the landmark M&P series of polymer pistols in January last year. ... The company has launched several products to expand its footprint in the $1.1 billion long-gun industry, which it entered into early last year, Wedbush Morgan adds. Smith & Wesson Holding is the frontrunner to win a US military contract, which could be worth $300-$500 million over the next several years, according to the analysts."

"The Second Amendment Students of Utah want to change what they call myths about firearms."

"'The biggest (misconception) is people who think that anyone who would like to have a gun is kind of nuts -- an unintelligent hillbilly,' said Brent Tenney, president of the club."

"Clark Aposhian, chair of Utah Shooting Sports Council ... also disagrees with this stereotype."

"'The students are passionate, intelligent and well versed on the subject,' Aposhian said. 'They're a group primarily concerned with the self-defense aspects of a student's life.'"

"Rudy Giuliani had a monumental task last Friday. Going before the NRA, Giuliani wanted to alleviate gun owners' fears that he would take away their ability to use guns to defend themselves."

"Some media suggested an even more lofty goal: 'it is possible that the NRA would endorse Giuliani.'"

"Surely Giuliani said many comforting things. He talked about the Second Amendment protecting individual rights. And he now disavows the lawsuits against the gun makers-- something that he himself initiated, but that he says went off course and went in directions with which he disagreed." ...

"Rudy Giuliani yesterday cited 9/11 to justify his conversion from ardent gun-control advocate to supporter of citizens' rights to bear arms."

"'You have to look at all these issues in light of the different concerns that now exist - which is terrorism - the terrorists' war on us,' the GOP presidential front-runner said in an interview with The Associated Press." ...

"'Rudy used to be a straight shooter,' said Paul Helmke, head of the pro-gun control Brady Campaign."

"'Rudy has learned the wrong lesson. Since Sept. 11, there's even a stronger argument to be made to keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of criminals,' Helmke said."

"In response to Gary Berube's Sept. 23 letter ('Second Amendment must be protected'), people should take a look at what Berube says and what the actual bills presented are."

"... HR256 'could' send a person to prison for having a weapon stolen from them. Writers should, please, fill in what the bill actually says 'will' send a person to prison - if people fail to have their firearms properly secured, would be my bet. The bill on body armor-piercing ammunition would not end high-powered rifle hunting. Game animals do not wear body armor, so this ammunition is not needed for hunting them." ...

"It was not yet available to me when I published that first analysis of the sources of its anti-gun funding, but they had already filed the Form 990 for OCAGV's second full year of operation (2004). So imagine my curiosity when I discovered that they had filed an Amended 2004 form soon after the cat was out of the bag - after it was revealed that someone was watching - and that they filed a second Amended 2004 return several months later." ...
