"The current debate on personal firearms ownership has been skillfully orchestrated through the inappropriate use of customized jargon." ...

"It is imperative, therefore, to point out the inadequacies of the catch phrases invented by gun-ban groups and to use appropriate language that conveys the actual meaning of the words used."

"If Gig Harbor enacts legislation to regulate the operation of a 52-year-old gun club in the city, the issue surely will wind up in court, said Dan Koch, past president of the Gig Harbor Sportsman's Club."

" 'I get kind of nervous when I see an ordinance that's going to put a shooting club out of business,' gun club member David Gordon told City Council members Monday night, pointing out that there already are laws 'against dropping rounds on your neighbors.' "

"Police officers likely won't lay charges under Canada's new firearms law until a new gun registration deadline runs out in several months, the Canadian Police Association said yesterday."

"Executive director David Griffin said his group supports gun control and the registry, but admitted officers will use their discretion when deciding to lay charges against gun owners until an amnesty runs out on June 30."

-------
In other words, keep moving that line in the sand in a futile attempt to force the illusion that you still wield some power over the population.

"One of the old complaints about allowing different cities to enact different controls concerned the hypothetical motorist who, not knowing that Denver has stricter gun controls than other cities, gets arrested for violating one when driving through town." ...

"Lawmakers shouldn't sacrifice the concept of home rule and local control on the altar of S.B. 25. They should kill this bill instead."

At the same time, the US Constitution shouldn't be sacrificed at the altar of "home rule."

"That's more in line with the reality of Project Exile. More than half of the 173 people prosecuted under the program served three years or less in federal prison."

"And that ...raises the question of whether the program is simply being used to pad statistics and whether it is a worthwhile use of federal money and resources."

"Actual man-hours are not tracked, but Project Exile involves the FBI, Police Department and Sheriff's Office, among other area law-enforcement agencies."

They want Israel dead. Gone. Exterminated. They say so publicly, and they say so in polls." ...

"Opponents of the sign's location, off the south side of Rte. 109 intersecting with Trailside Road, told selectmen they had convinced the gun club to take the sign down. In exchange for taking the sign down from that location, residents agreed the gun club could put up two identical 'WGC' on the other side of Rte. 109, where there are no residences and no intersecting street."

"The commutation of the sentences of more than 160 inmates on Illinois' death row by Republican Gov. George Ryan just two days before he left office is a miscarriage of justice." ...

"Among those spared a death sentence are a man and woman who murdered a pregnant woman, her 10-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son. They also cut the baby, who survived, from the woman's womb. If the notion of 'just deserts' ever matters, it should matter in this case."

"A bill that would have required unlicensed dealers at gun shows to conduct background checks on people purchasing guns failed to get out of committee Wednesday."

"The Senate Courts of Justice Committee decided instead to request a study on the issue by the state Crime Commission. Sen. Henry L. Marsh III, D-Richmond, said the move was a polite way of killing his bill."

-------
This piece of fascist legislation would have hoisted yet more unreasonable bureaucratic hoops on gun sellers. Polite applause for its timely demise.

Just as non-profits across the country have been challenging provisions of the Act that allow the Justice Department to wiretap private homes and businesses at will, academic institutions must be the ones to take the lead in challenging the legitimacy of the clauses dealing with research."

"Senseless killings like that of Jose Ramon Llamas will continue as long as we don’t have a gun ban similar to those in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and the other orderly countries. Vehicles, whether cars or motorcycles, have somehow become an extension of a person’s ego and personality and any harm inflicted on the vehicle is taken as harm on the person’s physical body. ...How about police officers in uniform subjecting motorcycle freaks to body searches or spot-checking drivers or vehicles?"

"A man caught hiding a pistol and devastating home-made bullets has been jailed for three years."

"Police recovered the deadly 6mm Deringer and ammunition together with £20,000-worth of drugs when they raided David Scott's home."

-------
Notice the complete rejection of any semblance of objectivity on the part of this British publication. The bullets are automatically "devastating" and the Deringer is "deadly" even though none of these objects have ever been used in a fatal incident.

"Implicit in all four is the assumption that you will clearly identify what you’re about to shoot before you pull the trigger. Speed means keeping your composure and your concentration, and acting deliberately once you decide to act. Get Down on Your Knee. If you can’t get to a tree to steady your gun ...use the kneeling position. It’s extremely quick to get into, and much steadier than offhand."
