"What happened in New Orleans must not ever happen again!"

"It must be made clear that local, state, and federal officials do not have the right or authority to prohibit firearms possession or to confiscate legally owned firearms."

"Immediately after receiving reports of gun confiscations in New Orleans, the Firearms Coalition began working on an initiative to amend the emergency powers laws of all 50 states and at the federal level. These amendments would clearly and explicitly state that citizens may not be disarmed and guns may not be confiscated during times of crisis. We are also working to ensure that the language adopted includes reassertion of the inalienable right of self-defense ..." ...

"Sometimes, I become so wrapped up in my own little world, consisting in large part of fighting government efforts to undermine the civil liberties of law-abiding American citizens, that I fail to recognize steps governments are taking that are achieving great results in protecting us from the ravages of terrorism and Mother Nature."

"I therefore pause and give credit where credit is due. Herewith, some recently announced steps that federal, state and local governments are taking and for which they should receive kudos for boldly going where no government has before and, against all odds, struck mortal blows against the forces of evil." ...

"Last year, the warnings were dire."

"The Clinton Gun Ban expired on September 13, 2004, after months and months of shrill screams from gun ban extremists that the sunset would result in the reign of terror on American streets."

"California Sen. Dianne Feinstein warned if the ban sunsetted 'you can expect more incidents' such as the July 1, 1993, shootings at 101 California in which a gunman used two TEC-9 semiautomatic weapons on a rampage through the office tower." ...

"A Windsor liquor store owner who fatally shot a robber won’t face charges, Weld District Attorney Ken Buck announced Monday."

"Ron Trauernicht, 59, acted in self-defense when his store ... was robbed last summer, Buck said in a written statement."

"Douglas Wies, 32, of Fort Collins wore a mask and walked into the store ... He told Ron and Norma Trauernicht he had a gun, brandished something in his hand covered by a cloth and demanded money from the cash register." ...

"It was reasonable for Ron Trauernicht to believe that a lesser degree of force would have been inadequate to protect his wife and himself, Bernard said. It was also reasonable, by law, for him to conclude his business was being robbed by a man with a gun." ...

"'He (the passer-by) claims that the large brown dog was approaching him in a very threatening manner,' [Detective Terry] Sollars said. 'He said he was barking very loudly. He, the man, was backing away from it. The dog was not going away and kept coming toward him.'"

"'He pulled out his handgun that he carries — and has a permit to carry — and fired one shot at the dog,' Sollars said. 'He said how frightened he was, with the dog growling and snarling, and thought he had no option.'" ...

... "Earlier that morning, the reporters gathered in a pressroom at Camp Aguinaldo to explain the dire circumstances that drove them to start ARMED, a grassroots self-defense movement that has drawn worldwide attention, mostly because it so clearly breaks with the entrenched taboo against journalists carrying – and using – guns. Faced with seemingly intractable safety problems and the lack of government protection, the Filipino journalists have decided that they simply have to protect themselves. What is happening here could set a precedent in places like Colombia, Russia and Bangladesh, where attacks against the media also are common." ...

FL: Campaign targets deadly-force law -- Our Opinion: Shoot-First Law Is Dangerous And Unnecessary
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Florida's new shoot-first law was a bad idea from the start -- and state lawmakers should revoke the law at their first opportunity. So don't blame the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence for warning visitors to stay calm if they become involved in a public confrontation after the law takes effect on Saturday." ...

"Although critics say that the law would create a wild-West mentality in Florida, that isn't likely. What is likely, police and prosecutors say, is that people involved in violent clashes ... now have another justification for killing. The most probable impact is that the law will give defense lawyers an additional argument to justify shootings that heretofore would have automatically been deemed unlawful." ...

"After New Orleans, will American firearms owners ever again be able to trust government, and especially police officers -- even ones they know personally?"

"A simple look at the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina reveals a disturbing chain of events that had the issue to do with anything but guns, there would have been an uproar in the media."

"But this is about firearms and the law-abiding people who own them -- people who have had their guns, their private property, forcibly taken from them by what amounts to imperial edict without due process, without the benefit of warrant and, according to various legal experts, in direct conflict with Louisiana statute and the state and federal constitutions." ...

"Before Hurricane Katrina wiped out many sections of New Orleans, the average response time by police to 9-1-1 calls was 11 minutes. After Hurricane Katrina, there were violent crimes and property crimes committed over a period of several weeks against the law abiding residents stranded in New Orleans and surrounding parishes, and there were few police to respond. Worse there was no way to contact the police who were on duty because the 9-1-1 system was down as were the phone lines and cell phone systems."
