ACLU too left-oriented
Submitted by: News Director

"While the ACLU claims to uphold and protect civil liberties granted to Americans under the Constitution, they are quick to protect First Amendment rights, but they refuse to take a stance on the Second Amendment. The group claims that they are neutral on gun control; however, the group states on its Web site that Americans are not constitutionally granted the right to own arms. The group’s opinion is that the Second Amendment only grants States the right to form militias and bear arms to deter tyranny from the central government."

"To date, the ACLU has denied nearly every case that involved gun control."

Google founder Sergey Brin defends role in Chinese censorship.

"...In France and Germany there are Nazi material laws. One thing we do, and which we are implementing in China as well, is that if there's any kind of material blocked by local regulations we put a message to that effect at the bottom of the search engine. 'Local regulations prevent us from showing all the results.' And we're doing that in China also, and that makes us transparent..."

"...It's not that I'm expert in these questions, but I remember what it feels like. So I'm definitely sympathetic. People will criticize us for this, and I think both kinds of viewpoints are perfectly valid. I'm comfortable with the decision that we made..."

"...we know that the UN wants to ban firearms from civilians and they want to impose this radical idea on the United States. We must thank President Bush for his superb nomination of John Bolton because it was Mr. Bolton that stood up to the bullies of the ever corrupt United Nations."

"John Bolton made it very clear that the United States is a sovereign nation and had its own constitution to follow and therefore did not follow the whims of the UN. He is what he had to say: 'The United States will not join consensus on a final document that contains measures contrary to our constitutional Right to keep and bear arms.' "

"HB 998 — co-sponsored by Republican state Reps. Earl Ehrhart of Powder Springs and Jan Jones of Alpharetta, among others — is not by any stretch of the imagination a Second Amendment issue."

"Even under the NRA's expansive and at times ludicrous interpretation, the Second Amendment can only be said to bar government from restricting gun possession. It cannot be twisted to say that private property owners cannot bar guns from their property if they choose."

"Furthermore, a study conducted in North Carolina and published last spring in the American Journal of Public Health found that workplaces that allowed possession of weapons were far more likely to be the site of a workplace murder than those that banned weapons."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

"Tony Blair said that 'crime figures are the measure of whether this Government is succeeding or failing'. On this test the Government is clearly failing the public when it comes to violent crime.

"The rise in violent crime and robberies is particularly worrying. We cannot rely on short-term blitzes on these problems when the Prime Minister happens to be giving them his attention. Serious police reform is needed to deal with the fact that officers are only spending 17 per cent of their time on the beat. Communities need a strong, visible police presence to deter crime and tackle it when it occurs."

"'I can predict that the violent crime rate and murder will increase if this law continues to be implemented... The only way to tackle this Wild West scenario is to allow the good guys to have guns ... The criminal in South Africa has too much freedom of action, too much job security.'"

"Anti-gun Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle should return $20,000 to executives of a company that was awarded a state travel contract, now that an official in Doyle's administration has been indicted on felony fraud charges in connection with that award, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today."

"'Just last week,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, 'Gov. Doyle did criminals a big favor with his veto of concealed carry legislation that would have empowered Wisconsin citizens to fight back. While he's been treating honest citizens like criminals for demanding their constitutional right to bear arms, a member of his administration is now facing criminal charges.'"

"Regardless of whatever permits they may have, those students and employees are not allowed to possess guns on campus."

"Tech's regulations are similar to gun policies at public colleges throughout the state, such as the University of Virginia, Virginia Military Institute and Radford University."

"But a bill being considered in the state House of Delegates challenges the authority of public universities to create such policies."

"House Bill 1572, proposed by Del. Todd Gilbert, R-Shenandoah County, would prohibit universities from making 'rules or regulations limiting or abridging the ability of a student who possesses a valid concealed handgun permit ... from lawfully carrying a concealed handgun.'"

"While it is now hard to believe that it's been that long, in 1997 I won a Winchester pump action shotgun at one the many Friends of NRA dinners I've attended since the first one was held in 1994." ...

"As far as this particular gun goes, there is no 'rest of the story.' It has never been fired; not one load of shot or a single deer slug has ever roared down the barrel at a target, paper or otherwise. In fact, I have not worked even one round of ammunition through the gun's mechanism."

"Now I'm glad that I never got around to firing the gun. Winchester — often billed as 'The Gun That Won The West' — has announced that its New Haven, Conn., factory will be closing and production will soon cease on many of the company's favorite models, including the Model 1300."

"Actually, the Winchester label is owned by U.S. Repeating Arms. According to published reports, unless a buyer is found before March 31, the plant will be shuttered."

Ottawa police say their three week long gun amnesty program is off to a great start.
