Your activism has slowed down gun control in Congress -- Thank you for all your hard work

"Gun control is on the back burner in Congress... and that is good news."

"But, as has often been said, in order to fully understand the good news, it helps to understand the bad news first. The 'bad news' was this: in early September, gun control was on the 'fast track' in the House."

"Pressure was mounting to help protect gun makers against frivolous lawsuits, but the prevailing attitude was that they should be helped at any cost... even if it meant swallowing new gun control regulations for the average gun owner."

"While the Senate passed S. 397 with two gun control provisions, the House bill (H.R. 800) remained free and clear of any gun control. ..." ...
 

NOLA Senior Citizen Assaulted: It’s Just Cops on the NWO Beat (A view from overseas)

"It’s a mistake to turn the beating of Robert Davis, a retired school teacher, into a racial incident. For the cops and FBI agents—yes, two of the attackers are identified as FBI (no explanation provided why the FBI are involved in mundane police work)—the fact Davis is an African-American is secondary to the fact the police in New Orleans (and many other cities in America) are sadists and bullies who like beating the crap out of citizens, especially citizens unable to defend themselves (or, as Davis’ case, too old to effectively defend themselves)."

"It would seem sadists and bullies are deliberately recruited as police officers these days and the citizenry at large is the enemy. ..." ...
 

CA: San Francisco Gun Ban Initiative: Bad Law Hurts Good People

"The San Francisco Gun Ban Initiative, Proposition H, will appear on the next election ballot in November. Several supervisors have touted the ban as a step in curbing violence and increasing public safety. A bold law with such high expectations merits a closer look."

"The proposed ordinance would prohibit San Francisco residents from possessing any handgun, and they would have 90 days to relinquish their property. ... Visitors to the city would not be subject to the ban if they are in compliance with applicable laws. Police officers and members of the military would also be exempt while 'carrying out the functions of his or her government employment.' ..." ...

"When Chet Szymecki does anything - goes to the store, pumps gas at the local Wawa, mows his lawn - he wears his handgun on his hip."

"So last month, when the 38-year-old father of three decided to attend the York County School Board meeting ... he called the Sheriff's Office to find out if he could take the gun with him."

"He could. ... He waited his turn to speak and when called, spoke for the three minutes he was allotted and sat back down."

"All the while, Szymecki's gun was in plain sight ... It also was visible to anyone watching the meeting broadcast on York's public access channel."

"It was perfectly legal."

Josh Holloway and his wife reportedly were robbed at gunpoint in their home. There was no indication that the robber recognized the 36-year-old actor, who plays hunky con man Sawyer on the ABC castaway drama "Lost," television station KHON reported.

The robber rousted the couple from bed early Wednesday, took cash and credit cards and drove off in Holloway's Mercedes-Benz, which was found abandoned a short time later, the station said.

Honolulu police would not release any information on the robbery.

Holloway's agent did not immediately return a call to her Los Angeles office.

A 52-year-old Wyncote man was charged yesterday with trying to board a Sept. 2 Southwest Airlines flight from Philadelphia while carrying two pistols, a revolver and three magazines of ammunition.

An attorney for Larry Bland, who had intended to fly to Chicago, said the man never intended to carry the weapons aboard an airplane.

"He picked up a bag that he travels with and forgot they were in there," said Fincourt Shelton, a Darby Borough lawyer.

Bland was charged in an information, which usually means he plans to plead guilty. If he pleads guilty, he is expected to receive probation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Arlene D. Fisk declined to comment.

"He referred to his detention at McAllen-Miller International Airport, where he was caught carrying a handgun Monday, as an 'unfortunate incident' for which he apologized."

"When asked whether political favoritism played a role in the quick dismissal of the case, the District 20 state senator said no, explaining he’d simply forgotten the gun was in his briefcase." ...

"Following Anderson’s arrest for the incident, Henley arraigned him and imposed a $2,500 bond. The local businessman ... had a concealed handgun license at the time, was arrested for possessing a loaded .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun in the secure area of an airport ..." ...

"Shooting the suspect in the leg, an arm, or a moving hand are all Hollywood myth ... according to Sgt. Clark Pennington who trains Frederick Police Department officers."

"'Officers have to react to a perceived imminent threat in a flash,' Pennington said. 'We shoot to eliminate the threat and are trained to shoot at the largest target presented to us.'"

"According to research done in major metropolitan police departments by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, between 42 and 82 percent of rounds fired during deadly force situations miss their intended targets." [empahsis added] ...

"I was disappointed after reading Howard Goodman's Sunday Commentary concerning the rights of employees to bring a legal firearm inaccessible in their car to a parking area outside their place of work."

"... Mr. Goodman not only shows his prejudice against firearms rights, but his ignorance in reporting on the matter."

"He selects a few random acts of violence involving a crazy person intent on killing who happened to use a firearm. He quotes some questionable statistic indicating that guns were used in 13 percent of workplace homicides and an unnamed survey in North Carolina that indicates that guns brought to the work place 'might' result in a greater risk of worker homicide." ...

"I wrote the other day about a bill coming to the Florida Legislature that would let people bring guns to work so long as they keep them in their cars."

I said this was a bad idea. I said companies that ban guns from their parking lots had a right to set reasonable rules to promote safety on their premises." ...

"The gun owners' most common argument was that criminals, by definition, don't follow laws, so why should anyone expect bad guys to respect restrictions on firearms?"

"By this logic, outlawing murder is useless because people still kill each other." ...
-------

KABA Note: No, Mr. Goodman, because laws against murder are primarily punitive; they punish someone for harm done to another. Silly gun laws, on the other hand, are primarily prophylactic; they attempt to prevent bad things from happening.
