Clark wary of concealed guns
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"Though he owns a lot of guns, loves to hunt and spent 38 years in the military, Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark is generally opposed to letting citizens carry concealed handguns." ...

" 'It's OK if you're a detective on the police force,' Clark continued. 'But I don't see a requirement for ordinary citizens to carry concealed weapons.' "

-------
Clark is what's called a "constitutionally challenged elitist." It's little wonder many who served with or under him had no respect for him. He isn't even aware of the Constitution he swore to uphold and defend as a soldier.

"Well, the Brady Bunch would have us believe many impossible things. But here are six for starters."

"First, the group gives Vermont a grade of D- because, supposedly, the 'state's weak laws make it too easy for criminals, the mentally ill and juveniles to get guns.' "

"But this statement is laughable, for crime in Vermont is virtually non-existent." ...

"The Land of the Midnight Sun is now following in Vermont's footsteps -- having passed a law last year allowing citizens to freely carry firearms without first obtaining government permission."

"The Brady Bunch doesn't like this at all. They awarded a D- to Alaska -- the second unbelievable grade -- and sentenced the entire state to the 'time-out chair.' "
 

See where the nine Democrat presidential candidates stand on your right to keep and bear arms.

"Howard Dean proudly claims to have been endorsed by the National Rifle Association, and indeed it is true that the NRA's Political Victory Fund (PVF) endorsed Dean in his re-election bid for governor of Vermont in 2000. But NRA members know that an endorsement by NRA-PVF in one election is not an endorsement forever. Endorsements are made based on several criteria specific to individual elections, including candidates` statements, voting records and other pertinent information. Dean was endorsed based on his position on issues specific to Vermont that were current at that time."
 

Violence Policy Center (VPC) Applauds U.S. Senate's Rejection of Omnibus Spending Conference Report Loaded With Provisions That Would Arm Criminals, Protect Corrupt Gun Dealers
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"The most egregious gun lobby-sponsored provision would drastically reduce the time that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) can retain records of approved gun sales -- from the current 90 days to a maximum of 24 hours. A June 2002 General Accounting Office (GAO) study conducted for Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) found that 228 of the 235 (97 percent) firearm retrievals initiated during the first six months of the current 90-day rule could not have been done under a 24-hour rule. Simply put, that means that 228 prohibited persons (i.e. felons, persons convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors, fugitives, etc.) would have been able to keep their illegal guns."

-------
While it's expected that the VPC is trying to avoid irrelevancy by claiming that it's the firearms provisions that stalled this huge, pork-laden monster, fact remains that there were a host of issues that caused the bill to be blocked, and firearms issues aren't even mentioned.

"Democrats are angry over provisions related to food labeling, overtime pay, media ownership rules and other issues, and some fiscal conservatives are upset with the bill's cost."
 

Guns Safety Programs in Schools, Don't Work?

FULL TEXT BELOW:

School gun safety programs don't work. That's the finding of a study in the journal Pediatrics.

Those safety programs fail when taught in a place where children would not encounter a gun, researchers find.

Researchers found better success when simulations were done in children's homes, or another place they might encounter a gun.

In a recent test in a home setting, 10-children who were taught not to touch the gun, but find an adult. Eight-out-of-10 children did the right thing, left the gun alone and found a grown-up.

-------
This is confirmation of a simple rule responsible gun owners already follow: teaching children gun safety is the responsibility of every parent. Do not rely on government schools to do the teaching for you.

"More than two centuries ago, the patriots of Brewster shut down the Colonial courts on Cape Cod in one of the first acts of resistance against the tyrannical rule of King George III."

"Now, deliberately evoking its Revolutionary history, Brewster Town Meeting has formally condemned the antiterrorist USA Patriot Act, united against the laws of a different leader named George."

"...In Brewster, anger at the Patriot Act has drawn together libertarians, an antitax group, and a Unitarian congregation, as well as a more traditional coalition of civil libertarians and antiwar activists."

"A public interest group that has fought privacy-threatening projects by Microsoft, Intel and Double Click believes its case against government efforts to obtain airline passenger records could have a far-reaching impact on consumer privacy, Marc Rotenberg, its executive director, said Sunday."

"The Electronic Privacy Information Center plans to file a consumer privacy complaint Wednesday with the U.S. Department of Transportation. Northwest Airlines violated its policy on passenger privacy when it gave NASA/Ames Research Center in Mountain View information on an untold number of passengers who traveled before and after the Sept. 11 attacks, Rotenberg said. NASA was trying to develop a protocol for determining security threats."

"A 14-year veteran Columbus police officer faces accusations of assault and domestic violence, and it is not the first time he has been in trouble with the law, NewsChannel 4 reported."

"John Patton, 42, was arraigned Tuesday and given a $15,000 bail after his arrest Saturday night at his eastside home. Patton was charged with assault and domestic violence. In the police report, his wife accuses him of forcing sexual behavior and grabbing the back of her head." ...

"Virginians would not be able to sue gun manufacturers, tobacco companies, fast food restaurants or other companies making 'inherently unsafe products' whose dangers are well known to the public under legislation proposed Tuesday by House Republican leaders."

"The exemptions are part of a GOP legislative program that would limit the circumstances under which injured people can bring lawsuits and would encourage settlements. Supporters say the measures would help prevent frivolous lawsuits, while opponents said the efforts were a 'set of solutions looking for a problem.' "

"He pointed a gun at her and told her to open the shop's safe."

"Cox: Last year marked the centennial of NRA's involvement with teaching the country's youth about gun safety, respect and responsibility toward firearms, marksmanship and enjoyment of the shooting sports. A tiny but shrill minority in this country call this an extremist agenda. What are your thoughts on kids, firearms and the shooting sports?"

"Rep. Murphy: Interaction between parents and their children can have a very positive influence on their lives. Such activity, whether it is playing baseball or a shooting sport, can help instill important life lessons of morality, safety and respect. The key here is parental involvement. Parents can serve as important mentors and role models for children in sports."

"A Carmel police officer accused of child molestation has faced work-related trouble, departmental records show."

"Paul Terry was suspended for three months without pay in 1992. The suspension came after an 'altercation' with a male juvenile who was an associate of his son's. During the incident, police say, Terry was intoxicated and improperly displayed his badge and weapon. He was demoted from sergeant to patrolman as a result."

"Police arrested Terry early Sunday and say he molested an 11-year-old girl over at least a two-year period. He faces 25 felony counts of child molestation, 10 counts of providing obscene materials to a minor and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor."

"The suits portray school officials as being so concerned with getting the fledgling school fully accredited by the American Bar Association that safety was ignored."

The incident happened just before 1600 BST on Monday, on Larwood Grove in the Sherwood area of Nottingham.

An undisclosed number of shots were fired by a group of men who drove away in a small white van.

The vehicle is thought to have had a roof rack and a smashed windscreen.

Officers from Operation Stealth are now appealing for anyone who saw the van to come forward.

Although no one was hurt, they say the presence of weapons in the city - and people willing to use them - is grave cause for concern.

Operation Stealth was set up specifically to deal with the rising number of gun related crimes in Nottingham.

Mayor said that 26,000 gun locks were given out at the Sportsman's Expo at Cal Expo last weekend.

"No country in the world has a higher rate of homicide by firearms than Brazil, and the toll is highest in large cities like this one. But now, in what gun control advocates describe as a bold but risky social experiment, Brazil has virtually outlawed the possession of handguns."

"Since just before Christmas, no one in this nation of 175 million except police officers, soldiers and prison and security guards has been authorized to carry a pistol."

"Your recent article concerning the gun control lobby Americans for Gun Safety and its report concerning local gun dealers just shows how such groups will spin statistics to serve their flawed agenda."

"The gun industry is already the most regulated one in the country, and it should not have to deal with certain groups trying to impede their right to do business. Citizens also have the right to own firearms for the protection of their families and property."

"The real problem is the low-life gang members and other criminals who prey on society."

"The Clinton semi-automatic gun ban of 1994 has been a decade-long vicious slap at veterans and Americans whose families have served in the military. For more than 200 years American soldiers, sailors and Marines have developed an interest in the rifles, pistols and shotguns involved with their military service. They lived with some of those guns. Some saved their lives. Some were used by their allies or enemies."

"Millions of service personnel and people with an interest in the military have purchased or inherited these guns... All these firearms played an important part in the military service of millions of Americans."

"Faced with the possibility of another close election, U.S. political campaigns and advocacy groups are drawing up detailed profiles of the voters who will determine their success at the polls next fall."

"Political groups are finding out what kind of car their prospective supporters drive, how much they earn, what sort of neighborhood they live in and what magazines they read."

"They may not know how individuals voted in the last election, but they do know who showed up at the polls and whether they are registered with a particular party -- strong indicators of how they are likely to vote in the November election, experts say."

How amusing. They know all about you, but refuse to listen to you.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property . . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them. — Thomas Paine, Thoughts on Defensive War (1775).
