"It was ludicrous that ordinary people in Australia should have access to handguns, Prime Minister John Howard said today."

"Mr Howard said he supported the concept of police, security industry workers and sporting shooters having such weapons."

" 'But other than that you don't need a handgun, and I think most people would agree with that,' he told Adelaide radio station 5DN today."

" 'It's just ludicrous that people should have access, and a lot of them do. The rules are too lax.' "

"Mr Howard said he did not want to see Australia go down the American path where guns were 'worshipped'." ...

"Most semi-automatic handguns and all large-calibre revolvers will be banned from all but military, law enforcement and security purposes."

"The move, announced last night after an Australasian Police Ministers Council meeting in Darwin, could result in a national handgun buyback scheme."

"The council also agreed to accelerate uniform national standards for registering and tracking firearms and to develop a system for staggered access to sporting handgun shooters based on training, experience and event participation."

"A list of handguns to be banned is yet to be formalised but it would be likely to include semi-automatics in calibres of 9mm, .40 and .45, and revolvers chambered for .44 and .357 rounds."

"Restricting the types of handguns that can be imported or possessed for target shooting to those used in events such as the Olympics will require a recovery and disposal process for the weapons which fall outside those classifications." ...

One of the circumstances in which a few believe the Constitution doesn't apply to them is the state of "official immunity". And who are these few who believe themselves above the law? Why, they are the very ones charged with seeing that "equality of the law" and the unalienable rights of the people are protected at all costs, even to the extent of declaring war against any country (government) that attempts to force surrender of the rights.

"In the outpouring of commentary about the Washington, D.C.-area sniper rampage, one fact was almost completely ignored: John Allen Muhammad... once was a member of the U.S. armed forces. This is hardly an indictment of the military, which plays an honorable and indispensable role in protecting our nation and liberties. But it illustrates the fallacy, much cherished by anti-gun activists, that firearms are in 'safe' hands when the military and police possess them exclusively." ...

"Former Orlando police Officer James Howard struck a deal in court Monday that allowed him to avoid a criminal conviction for sexual battery stemming from an incident last year with a prostitute."

"Last April, Howard was charged with coercing a prostitute into performing oral sex while he was in his police cruiser and on the job."

"On Monday, 32-year-old Howard agreed to the deal that dismissed the most serious charge: sexual battery by a law-enforcement officer, a first-degree felony."

"Howard, in exchange, pleaded no contest to receipt of unlawful compensation for official behavior, a third-degree felony similar to bribery, and solicitation to commit prostitution, a misdemeanor."

"After Howard entered the pleas, Circuit Judge John H. Adams withheld adjudication on both counts, meaning Howard will end up with no criminal convictions on his record in this case." ...
