... "In 'Shyness: How Normal Behavior Became a Sickness' ... Northwestern's Christopher Lane chronicles the 'highly unscientific and often arbitrary way' in which widespread revisions were made to 'The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders' (DSM), a publication known as the bible of psychiatry that is consulted daily by insurance companies, courts, prisons and schools as well as by physicians and mental health workers."

"'The number of mental disorders that children and adults in the general population might exhibit leaped from 180 in 1968 to more than 350 in 1994,' notes Lane ..." ...

Beside an Anti-Gun Bias, Media Doesn’t Know Guns
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Given the time and the story assignment, most journalists, print or electronic, will get something wrong in any news story involving guns."

"In some cases, this is a result of bias against guns -- or at least an unwillingness to seek sound information from real experts who might have pro-gun credentials ... To avoid appearing pro-gun at all costs, the reporter will call the Brady Campaign or some other obviously anti-gun group. In today's media world, the resulting story will appear to be neutral to the uninitiated."

"In others, it is pure laziness. Judging from many of the media questions fielded by staffers at the [SAF] -- often the same questions over and over -- these journalists seldom even consult their peers. ..." ...

"It is indeed gratifying to learn from your recent letter to the Philadelphia Daily News that CeaseFire PA 'has no interest in taking guns away from responsible, law-abiding Pennsylvanians.' But if your only goals are, according to your letter, 'to reduce gun violence, injury and death,' then why does your organization still support a nationwide ban on the possession of semi-automatic firearms by law-abiding citizens such as myself?" ...

"Maybe you have no interest at all in taking semi-automatic firearms out of my hands - at least, not today. But a nationwide ban on semi-automatics would deny future generations of law-abiding Americans their Constitutional rights ..." ...

"As news and rumors swirl around the current status and future success of the Merida Initiative, a plan to combat narco-trafficking in Mexico, those who argue the plan's merits can agree on at least one point: The front line of the so-called war on drugs has moved north from Colombia to the US-Mexican border, but the focus on drugs has overshadowed an element of the regional black market that is just as important."

"Mexican authorities now estimate that during the administration of former Mexican president Vicente Fox (2000 to 2006), some 2,000 guns per day entered Mexico. That works out to about 1.4 guns per minute. ..." ...

"Earlier this month, I wrote a piece called 'Another Poster Child for the NRA' in response to a horrific and disturbing account of a young police officer, in a small town in Wisconsin, who apparently went insane, out of jealousy, and killed his girlfriend, and several friends. ..."

"It was never my intention to rant against the National Rifle Association, or law enforcement, but instead call for a closer look at a national ethos which enables, and legitimizes, the use of weapons, and deadly force in lieu of dedicated problem solving."

"No sooner did my piece appear than I was besieged with hate mail, most of which came from National Rifle Association members, some from law enforcement, and the military ..." ...
 

WI: WI Judge's Ruling Opens Door for Concealed Carry

"A ruling by a Wisconsin circuit court judge that the state’s ban on concealed carry -- at least as it pertained to one specific case -- is unconstitutional may have provided new energy to that state’s gunowners to press for adoption of a concealed carry statute."

"Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Daniel Noonan dismissed a case against former pizza delivery driver Andres Vegas, who shot two would-be robbers last year with a handgun that he had carried concealed, following an earlier robbery attempt that also ended in a shooting. Vegas had been warned not to carry a concealed handgun while on the job following the earlier incident in which he had shot a teenager who pulled a gun on him." ...

"The 28-year-old and four other men who were in the bar at the time locked themselves in an office until the two gunmen ran away. Nothing was taken." ...

"The Iowa Board of Regents approved 6-to-2 a campus security plan that would require sworn police officers at Iowa’s public universities to carry firearms."

"Regents Michael Gartner and Rose Vasquez voted against the proposal."

"Gartner said he opposed the plan because he thinks the larger crime problem on Iowa’s campuses involves alcohol and drugs, which are problems not addressed by arming campus police. Vasquez has said in the past she opposes arming campus police."

"The board debated for about 15 minutes whether to require arming or to leave it to discretion of university presidents." ...

"Police officers at Iowa's three state universities will now routinely carry guns." ...

"Until today, campus officers were allowed to carry firearms only with prior approval from the university president or his or her designated authority, and only in assignments of extreme danger."

"Regent President Michael Gartner and Regent Rose Vasquez cast the only votes against arming campus police. ..." ...

"Here is Senator Bob Casey's letter to a constituent who warned Casey about the ATF's back door attacks on the Second Amendment. The Senators response was essentially to provide MORE funding and INCREASE the ATF's powers."

"Senator, If I am reading this wrong then please correct me. However you cannot say that you support the Second Amendment and support the ATF; with there track record. I hope that Pennsylvanian Gun Owners will remember that in the next election." ...
 

OH: HB354: More Gun Control Addressing Non-Existent Problems

"Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson is attempting to bring big-city, liberal gun control to a town near you. HB354, written by Mayor Jackson’s law department, was introduced October 16, 2007 by Rep. Williams and Rep. Boyd. Proponents of this Bill scream the typical 'It is for the children!' mantra while hoping no one reads it."

"A reading of the Bill shows Mayor Jackson is up to his old gun-banning tricks. This Bill has nothing to do with addressing the non-existent problem of juveniles walking around with guns and everything to do with banning guns and holding gun owners liable for the criminal acts of third parties." ...

"When, if ever, will it end?"

"Today, novelist and columnist L. Neil Smith takes on the incredibly disgraceful case of young BATFE victim David Bacon, in 'JUSTICE NOT JUST MISCARRIED, BUT ABORTED' ( visit http://www.jpfo.org/smith-justice.htm ). With every year that passes, any differences between this runaway, berserker federal agency and the hordes of Nazi goons who roamed Europe of the 1930s and 1940s, seem to diminish."

"What this miserable situation calls for is a stiff dose of the Constitution, and Neil has some unique ideas about where it can best be applied." ...

"Should 13 years of a reporting career go out the window because of one bad day? That is the issue surrounding Rebecca Aguilar of KDFW-TV in Dallas, and the answer seems to be that it depends on how bad that day was." ...

"In the Oct. 15 report in question, veteran reporter Rebecca Aguilar is seen aggressively questioning a distraught James Walton, 70, who had fatally shot two intruders at his business in the previous three weeks."

"The incendiary moment came as Ms. Aguilar posed questions that reeked of suspicion: 'Are you a trigger-happy person? ... Is that what you wanted to do? Shoot to kill?'"

"The next day, she was gone – suspended indefinitely – and the rodeo was on." ...

"She added: 'He hit him with both [the table leg and knife] a few times; it was like a frenzied attack. He was going for his head, it felt like a long time but it was over in seconds.'" ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing of concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. But it should not be forgotten, that it is not only a part of the right that is secured by the constitution; it is the right entire and complete, as it existed at the adoption of the constitution; and if any portion of that right be impaired, immaterial how small the part may be, and immaterial the order of time at which it be done, it is equally forbidden by the constitution. [Bliss vs. Commonwealth, 12 Ky. (2 Litt.) 90, at 92, and 93, 13 Am. Dec. 251 (1822)
