"It is astonishing that the American people continue to fail to get their collective intellectual arms around the absurdity and increasingly dangerous threat to human freedom that gun control represents. Banned by the Second Amendment, restrictions placed upon government by the law of the land are blatantly ignored by that very same government!" ...

"If his office's budget is cut again, Kentucky's top public defender plans to tell his lawyers to refuse to take new cases of poor people charged with crimes." ...

"His decision means impoverished criminal defendants might go to trial, and face potentially lengthy terms in prison, with no attorney -- or they could be released without their case being heard, Lewis said. Without lawyers, some defendants might feel pressured to plead guilty, he said."

"Now, just past the midway point of his first term in office, Bush is presiding over the largest, most expensive -- and, some would say, most intrusive -- federal government in history."

-------
She lay there disarmed, unable to defend herself, taking it for merry old Mother England. Thank goodness private gun ownership has been all but outlawed in Britain! Otherwise this girl may have been able to actually defend herself.

"Waldron urged the Brookings Institution and other gun control advocates who subscribe to the authors' nationwide tally of 300 gun laws to recognize that the 20,000 figure is a compilation of every 'stray ordinance' that exists in towns, cities and states across America."

" 'Federal law,' Waldron said, 'is a general rule that doesn't tell you where and how you can possess a firearm.' That's what state and local laws focus on, he said."

"Samirah said he had lived in the United States for 15 years and had not returned to Jordan since 1990, in part to give U.S. officials time to investigate him and determine that he was not a threat to the United States."

" 'Judge Labarga has allowed common sense and the rule of law to prevail over emotion,' observed SAF founder Alan Gottlieb. 'The Valor verdict defied logic by holding the Valor Corporation responsible for the willful act of a young thug. Nathaniel Brazill, who stole the pistol used to gun down Lake Worth Middle School teacher Barry Grunow, is solely responsible for that crime, and not the distributor.' "

"The Brookings Institution, a liberal research group based in Washington D.C., is attempting to revive interest in a flawed study on the effects of CCW on crime, entitled 'Shooting Down the More Guns, Less Crime Hypothesis', by John J. Donohue III." ...

"Donohue's research abstract provides enough proof of his bias as to damn the whole piece prior to reading it. And thus we at OFCC PAC got to wondering: just who is John J. Donohue III?"

"We now should realize that our demands for facts, statistics, true feelings, etc. won't do the trick. We're going to have to lean hard, very hard on our reps and senators (especially our senators) and demand that they ignore the phony concerns voiced against any CCW bill and let's get it on the governor's desk! That is what he's afraid of."
 

CA: California Legislative Update

"Two anti-gun bills have been introduced in the California Legislature. AB 50, sponsored by Assemblyman Paul Koretz (D-42), would restrict the sale and ownership of .50 Caliber BMG rifles. Although this is a retread of last year's bill that failed passage, Assemblyman Koretz is pinning his hopes on a batch of new legislators to give him the votes he needs to push AB 50 through the legislature."

"Also, anti-gun Senator Jack Scott (D-21) has introduced SB 35, a measure that would give the California Department of Justice the authority to establish and maintain a ballistic identification database. The fees incurred to administer the database would be passed onto the manufacturers, dealers, and consumers. Scott offers his proposal in spite of the fact that the California DOJ has already studied the idea of ballistic 'fingerprinting,' and the results indicate such a proposal is impractical and unreliable."

"The taxation itself is what is hurting local businesses. You do not fix this problem by increasing existing taxes or through the addition of new taxes. Americans pay nearly 50% of their yearly income in taxes. (This includes all taxes, state, federal, income, sales, property etc.) Our founding fathers never intended to fund vast social programs through taxation."

"With regard to your concern over the Chicago Anti-Gun Enforcement unit (C.A.G.E), please be assured that NRA is aware of the latest anti-gun activities in Chicago."

"Unfortunately, the simple fact is that the current political atmosphere in Illinois leaves gun owners in a very difficult position. That is why we are not only constantly engaged in legislative battles, but in electoral contests as well. It may not happen overnight, but we must, and will, continue our efforts to elect lawmakers who understand and respect the rights of law-abiding gun owners. You can be sure that NRA will continue to move forward with our fight, and we hope you will continue to work with us." ...

"In the past few years, migrants have faced a new danger: overzealous U.S. citizens—often carrying high-powered rifles, sporting homemade badges and wearing camouflage fatigues—have forcefully detained thousands of migrants before turning them over to border patrol agents. Chris Simcox, the founder of Civil Homeland Defense, one of several groups in the region focused on keeping out 'illegals,' insists that U.S. citizens have the right to guard the border." ...

"But human rights advocates suspect that vigilantes may be involved in a series of recent murders and attacks on migrants in desert areas between Tucson and Phoenix. Though the allegations remain unproven, there is a growing clamor for federal and state law enforcement officials to investigate the civilian militias and rein them in." ...

-------
Notice the vast amount of conjecture, speculation and wild accusations in this flimsy excuse for a story. Which human rights advocates have voiced suspicions of murder? Was there an investigation? Was anyone charged? Why bring up wild allegations without substantiating at least the party voicing the suspicion? Is this what passes for journalism these days?
