LA: Firearms ban at FEMA trailer park has gun rights group up in arms
Submitted by: News Admin

"Under pressure from gun rights groups, FEMA said today it is reconsidering a ban on firearms at a trailer park established to temporarily house Hurricane Katrina victims."

"The dispute involves a nearly 600-trailer encampment that opened last week near Baton Rouge. Katrina evacuees will be allowed to stay there rent-free while they try to find permanent housing."

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency said it has been general policy at FEMA for several years to prohibit guns at such parks anywhere in the country."

"But the National Rifle Association threatened to sue, and another gun rights group, the Second Amendment Foundation, said it, too, was looking at legal action."

"Debra Bolton had a glass of red wine with dinner. That's what she told the police officer who pulled her over. That's what the Intoxilyzer 5000 breath test indicated -- .03, comfortably below the legal limit."

"She had been pulled over in Georgetown about 12:30 a.m. for driving without headlights. She apologized and explained that the parking attendant must have turned off her vehicle's automatic-light feature."

"Bolton thought she might get a ticket. Instead, she was handcuffed, searched, arrested, put in a jail cell until 4:30 a.m. and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol."

stating, 'The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation's involvement with an organization whose mission is to repeal Washington D.C.'s gun laws cannot be reconciled with the mission of the foundation.'"

"It seems hardly a week goes by that one group or another tries to pit one of our rights against another. It's usually the result of someone claiming an absolute right or misreading the Constitution." ...

"Although we're supporters of gun rights and the right to self-defense, employers and other property owners have the right to limit behavior on their property. Arguments that the Constitution guarantees one's right to carry a firearm don't apply in this case because the Constitution limits the government's actions, not those of individuals or companies."

"...Government corruption is nothing new. Knee-jerk reactions and a rush to pass new laws after a national tragedy is certainly not a novel idea, especially in light of the quick and uninformed passage of the 'Patriot' Act after the September 11 attacks. Note how quickly Brady and her cohorts begin their blood dance and concurrent demands for extra gun control legislation after any well-publicized shooting. And, of course, the concept of 'If it bleeds, it leads' is still alive and well in the media. Death and destruction make for much more captive audiences."

"Bracken skillfully combines this set of circumstances and shows us a frightening, and all too realistic, glimpse into what could happen when ordinary, freedom-loving Americans are pushed too far by a band of would-be tyrants set on furthering their own power and agenda."

NC: Gun advocates have it all wrong (Letter)

"With all the misinformation we hear and read from the NRA and gun owners, the writer's clear and concise explanation of what the Second Amendment really says is like a breath of springtime."

"The Second Amendment does not do what advocates of guns say it does. It establishes the right to a militia. The Bill of Rights does not give 'mountain boys' the right to hunt or wackos to carry guns."

"Rules for the use of guns come from elsewhere, not the Constitution. The truth that worries gun advocates is that local, state and national legislators can change the rules for all guns."

-------
Someone ought to give this writer a lesson on what the militia actually is. Here is a good start.

More people killed themselves than were killed by others in 2003, according to a new state report that examines details of more than 1,300 suicides, homicides and other violent deaths in Virginia that year." ...

"In all, the Virginia report focused on 1,332 violent deaths, involving 799 suicides, 435 homicides, 68 deaths of undetermined intent, 18 involving firearm accidents, and 12 cases of 'legal intervention,' defined as being killed by a law enforcement officer in the line of duty." ...

"Of the suicides, the data show military veterans and elderly males are at particular risk. Nationally, suicides tend to outnumber homicides."

Submitter's comment: Looks like the despair and hopelessness problem is bigger than the hate problem. It just doesn't further government's need for control, so it's not big news.

"Many of you reacted quite strongly to the report detailing the three-day school suspension of 11-year-old Rhodes Hardy, a sixth-grader willing to defend his chum from violence."

"This Hardy boy, as you may recall, violated Henrico County school policy 10 days ago by pushing a seventh-grader attempting to give Rhodes' much-smaller pal, also a sixth-grader, a knuckle sandwich." ...

"Many of you say you've taught your children to defend themselves and others, regardless of school policy." ...

"I asked Mychael Dickerson, spokesman for the Henrico school system, when it would be OK for a student to intervene in a fight situation. When blood is spilled? When bone is sticking out?"

"His response: 'We encourage the students to find an adult not to get involved.'"

"Which would seem to indicate that Henrico would've preferred that passengers aboard Flight 93 stayed in their seats, called for help and then watched the plane fly into the White House."

"At a news conference Wednesday McAllen City Attorney James Darling defended Henley's decision to dismiss gun charges against senator Hinojosa." ...

"'This has nothing to do with whether the senator is above the law or below the law. All of us should be treated equally by the law. If you get arrested or detained at the police department because you forgot to declare a handgun at the airport, I would give you the same treatment and I would request the PD to do the same thing,' the district attorney said."

"We at Buckeye Firearms Association have watched the passage of Florida's new 'Stand Your Ground' law with keen interest. For in the past twenty years, as Florida's pro-gun law goes, so goes the nation."

"We have also watched with shameless claims being recycled by gun ban extremists about this law, including a large advertising purchase by the Brady bunch that tries to warn would-be Florida tourists not to get into fights with natives during their visit."

"We thought we'd have our own fun with the vacationer advisory, and we hope you'll share it with your friends (note to our Brady bunch friends: this one didn't cost thousands of dollars)..."

"Howard Goodman's column, 'Bring a gun to work? What's the NRA thinking?' (Sunday), was breathtaking in its hysterical hyperbole."

"Goodman, in supporting his thesis, blew the dust off four incidents where someone used a gun to assault or murder people in a workplace." ...

"If Mr. Goodman can muster evidence on these anecdotes, I would love to know more. I will even make a challenge. I'll wager a $10 contribution to Handgun Control Inc. that none of the perpetrators in his anecdotes had a valid concealed-carry permit. Criminals and psychos do not care one flyspeck about laws against murder, or of carrying guns, or of 'safe workplace' policies, which misguidedly intimidate employees from carrying their own self-defense weapons."

"And with a four-year-old grandson at home, 'It’s just our responsibility to make sure they understand that they aren't toys, and you don't play with them,' she says. So she's jumping on this opportunity to pick up gun safety kits from Project Child Safe, 25 of them for her hunter safety course. And that's nothing."

"Philip Van Cleave of Midlothian, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, told the Town Council that Godfrey's reply to VCDL member Mike Stollenwerk's e-mail addressing a gun ban at Yowell Meadow Park was inappropriate."

"That reply, directed to 'Herr Stollenwerk,' was written in German and said, 'Many thanks for serving as our moral conscience. Culpeper would be lost without the patronizing guidance of the people like you in Northern Virginia.'"

"Long live the state!"

"It was signed by Godfrey."

"Before the one-handgun-a-month law 34 percent of guns recovered from crimes in the Northeast came from Virginia. That’s right. Before this law, a full third of all crime guns could be traced to Virginia distribution. Within 2 years of the law going in to effect, that number dropped by more than half."

"Jim Solo of the Virginians Against Handgun Violence, had this to say, 'The law is working to reduce crime in our state, we don’t understand why politicians would pander to the criminal element.'"

Aslanides already has 47 co-sponsors out of a 99-member House of Representatives, and he insisted that other lawmakers will support the measure.
