"And how about the National Rifle Association? It treats every possible restriction on gun makers - even the most sensible ones - as if jackbooted thugs are stealing the stripes off the flag. Does the NRA bear culpability? As long as we're splitting the baby?"

"In the end, you have just one weapon, one shooter and one corpse. But as this jury found out, when it comes to gun violence in America, the math is never that simple."

Hamilton Co. Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman ruled Friday that Cincinnati cannot sue non-Ohio gun manufacturers locally.

Ruehlman granted a motion by the gun associations to be dismissed from the suit the city filed against Beretta, among others.

The Brady Campaign is ratcheting up their rhetoric machine, aiming to destroy Ohio's Concealed Carry Reform bill, under consideration in the Senate.

In the Nov. 15, 2002 newsletter, Brady claims that the "gun lobby is trying to force Ohio police to let almost anyone carry concealed handguns in public - even into our playgrounds, shopping malls, sports stadiums and schools."

But in truth, Ohio's HB274 disallows permit holders from carrying in schools. So what else are they lying about?

HOW IGNORANT CAN PEOPLE BE? READ THIS!
Rep. Veasy said the public had become convinced that the risk of danger was so great that they need a weapon to protect themselves.

'Pro-gun does not mean you are pro-America,' she said, adding that Second Amendment rights were being misconstrued. She said the purpose of the amendment was to allow the militia in Revolutionary War times to keep guns in their homes. It was not about 'everybody protecting themselves in their house.'
First of all, "Rep. Veasy" is not an elected official; she's the "head of the Black Children's Institute of Tennessee" -- as pointed out in this very article.

Staff writer who reported this absurdity: dcheek@tennessean.com.

Jaunita Veasy, head of the Black Children's Institute of Tennessee, deserves an email, too: bcitn@nashville.com

Be sure to copy your letter to the Editor, as well: letters@tennessean.com

There is also good news in this article:

Numerous changes "are in a series of proposed bills that would relax weapons standards for 130,000 Tennesseans who have received permits since the conceal-and-carry permit program began in 1994. The bills, all sponsored by state Rep. Ben West Jr., D-Hermitage, and backed by the Tennessee Firearms Association, were discussed last week by the House Judiciary Committee, which was reviewing them in an interim study session." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the constitution they don't like. — Alan Dershowitz
