A lesson from the Third World about the value of gun control
Submitted by: News Admin

"I'm not involved in anything else where a gun might be needed. I've never felt the need to own one for self-defense. I've shot guns at targets or for practice once or twice, but that's about it."

"...I lived in Papua New Guinea, a Third World country that has very strict gun control laws. One expatriate was kicked out for having a pellet gun. Yeah, a pellet gun. They didn't want any guns at all. Period."

"You would think in this country that had very strict controls on who could own guns that there would be little violence, right?"

"Wrong. Their murder rate is twice that of the United States. And guess who had the guns? Sometimes not even the police because the criminals would steal them!"

"Because I think some gun control laws make sense -- like requiring background checks to make sure gun buyers aren't felons -- some NRA supporters insist I'm anti-gun." ...

"Right. Anyone not in goose-stepping agreement with every National Rifle Association position is part of a conspiracy to take your guns away, and don't you forget it." ...

"But right now, I'm sorry to say it is a prominent group promoting gun control that is now saying and doing the inane, inflammatory things."

"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has people in Florida handing out what purports to be an important warning to newly arrived tourists. The literature tells the arrivals that Florida, thanks to a new 'Stand Your Ground' law, has become a far more dangerous place." ...

"This tactic is designed to create baseless fear and exploit it for political and fund-raising gain. And it is based on a fantasy that Floridians are trigger-happy jerks who, oddly enough, are also highly attuned to legal nuances. Where once the law alone held them back, now they will be opening fire willy-nilly."

"A dispute between the two towns' police departments over traffic enforcement culminated in May with South Hill's police chief ticketing his La Crosse counterpart for improperly stopping on the highway as he was parked in the median during traffic enforcement." ...

"La Crosse Police Chief R.L. Hahnke maintains he was right on the border shared by the towns when South Hill Police Chief Norman Hudson confronted him and threatened first to ticket him and then to have his unmarked police car towed." ...

"During an April meeting, South Hill council members aired a list of complaints about the La Crosse department's traffic enforcement, including that many of those being stopped assumed it was by South Hill police." ...

"And while most of the La Crosse council members strongly support the department's aggressive enforcement, there is some dissension. La Crosse Councilman John Love complained at a June council meeting that the town police generated $250,000 in fines."

"'For a little town like ours, something is not right,' he said."

"California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger smartly signed two bills Friday, strengthening enforcement of age restrictions on ammunition purchases and protecting domestic violence victims. But he also vetoed a common sense measure that would require handgun ammunition to be locked up by retailers. ..." ...

"'As a victim of gun violence myself, I thank all of the elected officials who had a part in these victories. The people of California will be safer because of these bills,' said Griffin Dix, president of the California Million Mom March Chapters. 'We look forward to working with the legislature and Governor Schwarzenegger next year to enact our two priority bills, to serialize ammunition and equip handguns with ammunition microstamping technology.'"

"Firearms are a valued part of the culture and fabric of South Dakota. Each year, South Dakota issues well over 120,000 resident hunting licenses, and nearly 100,000 nonresident hunters visit our state each year to support our tourism and hunting industry." ...

"South Dakotans have long seen the logic and importance in protecting gun manufacturers against these types of frivolous lawsuits. Our state was the first state in the Union to pass liability protection legislation for firearms manufacturers, and now the U.S. Senate has followed suit, having recently passed the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, a bill I cosponsored, which would provide liability protection to law-abiding gunmakers and retailers throughout the nation."

"More than 95 percent of all gun related crimes in the Rochester area are committed with illegal guns. That’s what District Attorney Mike Green told NEWS 10NBC Tuesday. So where are all these guns coming from? Police say the guns are generally stolen and come from states that have less stringent gun laws. The problem is they end up on Rochester streets and into the hands of young kids like 16-year-old Arthur McBride. McBride had a handgun on Colvin Street late Monday night and police say he fired it into the air. He was arrested and charged with criminal possession and prohibited use."

"...FEMA officials didn't bat an eye when teams of police from other jurisdictions descended on New Orleans and St. Tammany Parish in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, disarming law-abiding citizens who had committed no crime. Nobody from FEMA uttered a peep when California Highway Patrol officers body-slammed Patricia Konie to the floor in her own home taking her revolver and forcibly removing her from her residence for evacuation.

"Yet FEMA went ballistic when a team of trained specialists came to help their fellow Americans, in a region gripped by anarchy, simply because the Phoenix group had the good sense to bring along four armed officers for their security..."

"Why is it that when a top official is caught violating the law he is not arrested. If it would have been a regular citizen he would probably still be in jail. Now My question is if he took the CONCEALED HANDGUN course he was made aware of state and federal law that he cannot carry a concealed firearm in PROHIBITED AREAS like an airport. Did he take the course or not??? The I forgot excuse does not work in this case. He should have his license revoked."
