Dave Workman: Illinois Supreme Court ruling deals major blow to anti-gunners
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"In the final analysis, what happened in Illinois is reflective of what has already happened elsewhere around the nation. Apparently, it just takes a little longer for the Left to grasp it in the Land of Lincoln . Judges are following the law, and avoiding the temptation to legislate from the bench. Legislatures are responding - albeit with very small steps in Illinois - to constituents who demand that their right of self-defense be held sacrosanct. Forty-six states have some form of concealed carry law on the books, and Illinois is one of the four remaining holdouts."

"The Illinois Supreme Court and the Illinois Legislature have both chalked up wins for common sense. In the process, they have further eroded the ability of gun control proponents to demagogue their values onto the backs of law-abiding citizens and legitimate businesses. As the Brady crowd is fond of saying, that's a 'good first step.' "

"The superintendent of Miami-Dade Schools, where police Taser-gunned a 6-year-old first-grader, has asked police to stop using stun guns against children."

"Superintendent Rudy Crew made the request in a letter to the police chief, the Miami Herald reported Saturday.

IN: Comprehensive Indiana Statewide Survey Shows that Hoosiers Support Host of Common Sense Gun Violence Prevention Measures
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"A new comprehensive statewide survey revealed that Hoosiers support a variety of measures to reduce gun violence in Indiana and several measures are widely supported by households with and without guns. For example, background checks at gun shows and for private sales, a mandatory waiting period before purchasing a handgun, refusing handguns to those convicted of domestic violence, required safety training for new gun owners, unloading and locking guns if children are in the household, childproofing new guns sold in Indiana, and raising the age to 21 for concealed weapons permits are supported by at least 75 percent of survey respondents, regardless of whether there is a gun in the household."

"The survey also showed overwhelming support for several measures. 89.2% of Hoosiers support requiring background checks at gun shows and 82.7% support background checks for all private gun sales. 85.2% of Hoosiers support legislation prohibiting the sale of handguns to those convicted of domestic violence. And as yet another example, 79.2% of Hoosiers support requiring all new handguns sold in Indiana to be "childproofed" -- meaning devices that recognize only the gun owner in order for a firearm to be used."

"SKS assault rifles like the one reported to have been used to murder five hunters and wound three others in Wisconsin over the weekend are a primary threat to police, the Violence Policy Center (VPC) reported today. So far in 2004, at least six law enforcement officers have been slain by SKSs. In the wake of the shooting, the VPC called on President George W. Bush today to use the Administration's executive authority over firearm imports to fully ban the import of all foreign-made assault rifles. Such an action would not require Congressional approval. The Bush Administration has specifically authorized the importation of SKS assault rifles from both Yugoslavia and Albania."

"Detectives swooped on the 22-year-old’s Colinton home after a tip-off from Scotland Yard, uncovering a cache of fake guns."

"They found five replica guns, including a Glock 17 handgun, a Beretta pistol and a copy of a police-issue MP5 Carbine."

"The raid on Friday was part of a national clampdown, dubbed Operation Bembridge 2, on the ownership of handguns and potentially deadly replica weapons."

"Police later discovered that four of the weapons were harmless fakes, but that one, a blank-firing version of a Glock 17 handgun which is also used by police marksmen, was a prohibited weapon which had the potential to be converted to shoot real bullets."

"The problem of personal security is real in Jamaica.
It is quite understandable, therefore, that may people, in several walks of life, believe that they need to own guns for their protection. Indeed, gun ownership, legal and illegal, is high in Jamaica." ...

"While we do not have the benefit of a full study, this newspaper, like a growing number of Jamaicans, is increasingly concerned, too, about those guns that are owned by persons who have valid permits to carry them. ..."

"...It is against this backdrop that we have in the past asked for a full review of the process for awarding gun permits and find ourselves in sympathy with the emerging suggestions for psychological evaluation of persons who apply to own guns."

"We may disagree on some small stuff, but I would hope we could all get behind banning the assault weapons, eh? They are weapons designed to do nothing else but kill large numbers of people. Some would claim they are for hunting, but unless you are hunting down unwanted portions of the population, I cannot fathom a reason for such armaments." ...

"Lastly, I'm annoyed by people who would like to blame the problems in our society on elements like Hollywood and the media elite."

"For some reason, parents want to blame media tycoons for their family's lack of values. The last time I checked, it has always been the parents' job to instill values in their children. Not the president's, not the U.S. Congress, and not the media's."

"An amusing thought presents itself here; since the District's laws allow you to apply for registration immediately upon bringing the handgun into the District, and then provide for you to wait while the registration is processed, and then wait more while the reconsideration is processed, and then provide 7 days for the firearm to be disposed of outside the district. Someone who really didn't care whether they were convicted could presumably bring in a handgun, go through the process, get denied after a wait, and then at the end of the grace period dispose of the first handgun and bring a new one in for the same process. I don't suggest trying it, but if the stakes were lower and handguns less expensive it would probably a good way to piss off the police. Must be one of those loopholes."

SANDAG, San Diego's regional planning agency, along with area kids, have developed an anti-gun-violence program.

Their message is simple: Make the public aware of the dangers of guns.

One way they're doing that is by passing out gun locks at schools; another is through billboards.

Five billboards will be placed around the county at trolley stops between Oceanside and Lemon Grove.

More signs are planned as the project continues throughout the year.

"It would seem there is an overt design to destroy our Rights because a simple investigation would reveal the obvious: the Bill of Rights enumerates the right of each citizen to possess and bear arms; the courts have recognized this right as a fundamental right antecedent to the Constitution; and in spite of clear unambiguous language declaring that the 'Right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,' infringement is the current and continuing course of action for the Congress and administrative agencies."

"Among the evidence that this infringement is an intentional act is a 1982 Senate Report: The Right to Keep and Bear Arms. The Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Ninety-Seventh Congress, Second Session published this report (U.S. Government Printing Office, 88-618 0 WASHINGTON: 1982). ..." ...

"Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Deputy Norberto Leal fails to consider that, as with all classes of firearms, the number used by criminals is exceedingly small compared to the total number of weapons owned. The numbers of assault weapons owned in the U.S. in 1989 was put at 3,335,610."

"Joe Garcia, also with STOP, does his best to paint assault weapons as the ultimate instrument of drug dealers, criminals and evil in general. He says, 'They have no purpose other than to create chaos in a criminal environment ….' "

"But these weapons do have a place in our society. Every year, the civilian national high-power rifle matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, require a military configuration rifle. The AR-15 rifle cartridge was originally designed as a varmint round."

"Perhaps he should remember when police in South Central Los Angeles would not respond for three days during the 1992 riots. The only shops not sacked and burned were owned by Korean shopkeepers who were able to face the riotous mobs with, amazingly, not their grandfathers’ hunting rifles, but assault weapons."
