Are opponents of Amtrak gun bill supporting terrorism?

"Last Monday, we looked at a sampling of the hysteria triggered by a Senate vote to cut off federal funding for Amtrak, unless passengers are once again permitted to travel with locked, unloaded firearms in their checked baggage. In that column, I focused mostly on how silly the citizen disarmament advocates' claimed fears were ... Now, though, it occurs to me that this is no laughing matter--that Mayor Bloomberg, Representative McCarthy, and company, are actually resisting a change that could do much to combat the very real dangers of terrorism."

"I am not referring to a scenario in which armed passengers would dispatch the terrorists before they could accomplish their evil mission ..." ...

"Although Wilt Alston has written a piece good enough to be the Last Word on the unjust imprisonment of Plaxico Burress, nonetheless, I figure I will do mop-up duty, as well as second his excellent commentary. Indeed, I believe that Burress is a political prisoner who is being disguised by the press as a felon. Given that the mainstream media today is little more than a mouthpiece for the political classes, I think it is safe to say that the press does not 'get it,' nor ever will." ...

"Once upon a time, the authorities would have seen Burress’ wound as being substantial punishment for not having his equivalent of a firearms hall pass, and he would have received a legal slap on the wrist ..." ...

"Gov. Jan Brewer recently signed five pieces of legislation that foster gun-safety education in Arizona's schools and reinforce the rights of gun owners in the state into law."

"The legislation was sponsored by Sens. Jack Harper and Russell Pearce, and mandates that Arizona's Right-to-Carry permit holders are allowed to defend themselves in public restaurants, store their firearm in a locked vehicle while parked in a publicly accessible parking lot, and reveal their firearm to an individual threatening them or a loved one."

"Furthermore, the new law states that an individual who shoots someone in self-defense is innocent until proven guilty." ...

"The 'Chicago Gun Cases' are now pending in the Supreme Court, which should vote on September 29 whether to hear them or not. In the meantime, yet another case is slowly moving in the same direction. Like the Chicago cases, the main issue is whether the 2nd Amendment applies to the States via the 14th Amendment."

"Nordyke v. King challenges an Alameda County, California, regulation forbidding carrying of firearms on county property, a rule that was aimed at barring gun shows from the county fairground. Gun show organizers filed suit in 1999 – yes, the case has bounced from one court to another for a full decade! It finally arrived in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers the far west and has historically been anti-gun." ...

"The court also is considering whether to hear several other cases with broad implications, such as whether the Second Amendment right to self-defense, which the court first identified last year, limits state weapons regulations. The 2008 decision, a 5-4 vote, split along ideological lines."

"So here's a disconcerting little headline. From the Associated Press (via the Houston Chronicle): Bullet makers can't keep up with demand" ...

"This is only the latest news report showing a rise in demand for guns and ammo since Obama took office. But the president didn't accomplish this on his own; a good deal of credit goes to the gun lobby, which has always relied on fearmongering and paranoia as critical parts of its strategic arsenal. In its propaganda campaign in the run-up to the 2008 election, the NRA portrayed Obama as the most anti-gun candidate in the history of the republic." ...

"The 'vast right-wing conspiracy' that attacked him during his presidency has been weakened, but continues to operate against President Obama, former President Clinton said Sunday."

"On NBC's 'Meet the Press,' Clinton was asked about the term his wife Hillary Clinton, now secretary of state, famously coined. 'Is it still there?' host David Gregory asked."

"'Oh, you bet. Sure it is. It's not as strong as it was, because America's changed demographically, but it's as virulent as it was,' the former president replied." ...

Memo to the NRA: Lighten up a little

"Sometimes the National Rifle Association needs to know when it’s time to lighten up."

"It pains us to say that ..."

"But the organization jerked the trigger recently when it targeted ... Massachusetts mayors because they had the temerity to join Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a national organization that works to deny irresponsible and criminal citizens from getting their hands on guns."

"It would take the logical skills of Aristotle to explain the finer points of why these groups disagree. ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: No it wouldn't. Let's look at just one topic, closing the mythical gun show loophole. MAIG want's gun show promoters to 'register' with the AG, pay a fee and get a license. No limit on the fee, no mention of requirements to get a license. Really makes you want to run a gun show, doesn't it.

Anyone who sells as much as a single gun at a show, or talks to someone about a gun which they later buy elsewhere, is a 'vendor' and must be registered with the promoter. Failure to do so will send the buyer and seller to prison for two years, but the promoter faces five years. Still want to run a gun show?

How about the waiver of your 4th, 5th 6th and 14th amendment rights? "[T]he Attorney General may enter during business hours the place of business of any gun show promoter and any place where a gun show is held for the purposes of examining the records required by sections 923 and 932 and the inventory of licensees conducting business at the gun show. Such entry and examination ... shall not require a showing of reasonable cause or a warrant." No warrant required, no presumption of innocence. Still want to run a gun show?

...To change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite of the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community and their country.

It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow, and it is divided in four basic stages. The first one being demoralization ... [over] 15-20 years. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years it takes to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy...

It is critical to any honest search for understanding to include the real experts, and when it comes to safety on campus, it must include those experts much more likely to be present: other students."

"I have received comments that one cannot 'choose' to refuse to be a victim. One can. The alternative is, of course, in choosing not to refuse to be a victim. In short, these people refuse to refuse to be a victim. They do nothing. The tone of some of the mail has been belligerent, with a cast of no solution to it. ..." ...

"How does a Paramedic reconcile being prepared to use lethal force with a mission of saving lives? Gun owners will also answer this question for the forum. It stops violence and it saves lives."

"However most local Jewish leaders said there are better ways to ensure safety than pistol-packing rabbis. Law enforcement doesn’t like it, either." ...

"However, a terse e-mail statement from Jacksonville Undersheriff Frank Mackesy on Moskowitz's program said the Sheriff’s Office doesn't 'encourage anyone to take the law into their own hands. Be aware of your surroundings and contact the police.'" ...

A New Jersey police officer who was seen on surveillance video beating an unarmed man has been indicted.

Passaic Police Officer Joseph Rios III faces an aggravated assault charge and one count of official misconduct stemming from the May 29 incident.

A restaurant surveillance camera captured Rios, 28, flinging Ronnie Holloway, 50, to the ground at a Passaic intersection and hitting him while Rios' partner paces around nearby.

Rios' attorney, Anthony Iacullo, said Monday that his client denies any wrongdoing and expects to be vindicated once evidence is presented to a jury.

The Passaic County prosecutor says Rios' partner faces departmental charges.

Both Rios and his partner have been suspended without pay.
