"'FBI: Data on mentally ill could save lives,' announced the Fort Worth Star-Telegram headline last week."

"At last. Recognition that without access to some medical records, the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, is an inadequate tool for keeping firearms away from people who, under federal law, can't have them."

"No sane person on either side of the gun debate can reasonably argue that the instant check is not a good idea. Initiated in 1998, NICS replaced the Brady Act, which required a five-day waiting period between the time that an individual filled out the paperwork to buy a handgun and when that person could take possession of it." ...

"Hollow-point bullets like the one used in the slaying of Officer Daniel Enchautegui are much deadlier than ordinary bullets - and nearly as easy to get."

"Cops favor using the hollow-point bullets because they are less likely to pass through a target and ricochet into a fellow cop or bystander."

"But they want their public sale banned to keep them out of the hands of thugs like Enchautegui's alleged killers, Steven Armento and Lillo Brancato."

"'Our mission is to stop violent felons,' said Patrolmen's Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch. 'There is no reason for anyone else to have that ability.'" [emphasis added]

"Armento allegedly shot Enchautegui with his father's .357-caliber handgun, loaded with the hollow-point bullets." ...

"The assemblyman who cast a deciding vote last year against overriding the governor's veto of a bill allowing people to carry concealed weapons in public does not like the bill this time around, despite changes aimed at softening opposition."

"Rep. Gary Sherman's vote was controversial at the time, because he voted for the bill before voting against the veto override. At the time, Sherman said he was helping preserve minority power by showing Republicans that they need to work with Democrats."

"Sherman, D-Port Wing, said he would definitely vote against the current bill. ... It is expected to be approved by the Republican-dominated Assembly, and Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle has said that he will once again veto the legislation." ...

That's funny, I distinctly remember Sherman saying that he didn't want a fellow Democrat to be the first governor in one-hundred and however many years to have a veto overridden.

Jean Schmidt (R) faced off against Iraq War vet Paul Hackett (D), in a special election to fill a seat vacated when President Bush appointed then-Congressman Rob Portman as U.S. Trade Representative."

If you eliminate all the hype and emotion from both sides of this issue, what this handgun ban really comes down to is paying $150 million, over five years, to collectors and/or target shooters to buy back their registered and licensed pistols. That's all, nothing more, nothing less. So, the Liberal solution to the violent crime in the black community, crime surely driven by economic and social hardships experienced within that community, is to pay out 150 million tax dollars to mostly white, middle and upper-middle class pistol target shooters and collectors.
