"MTV, Music Television, has become known more for its "reality" shows and political activism than for playing music videos over the past decade. That trend will continue Thursday night with the airing of the latest episode of the network's "True Life" documentary series: "True Life: I'm a Gun Owner." While some firearms enthusiasts are giving MTV the benefit of the doubt, many gun rights advocates are already questioning the objectivity of the program."

"Next month, Rochester police will have a new tool called the 'shot spotter' that pinpoints exactly where gun-shots are fired."

"In cities that already use it, police credit the shot-spotter for reducing the crime rate and for solving crimes."

"Field sensors send the gunfire sound right to a computer which then maps out exactly where the sound came from. The technology allows the gunshot information to be directly sent to a pager or a palm pilot, so officers can arrive at the scene more quickly."

"I am referring to his statement that if he is re-elected, he will ban all handguns. Of course, this is optional for those provinces that don't want to institute the new ban. Albertan and Saskatchewan have already said they will not uphold this law if passed."

"How ridiculous can that be? Handgun registry and control laws for legal handguns have been in effect in this country since 1934."

"Martin obviously has not done his homework when it comes to gun owners in this country. He and his cohorts have squandered nearly $2 billion on a useless gun registry that was supposed to cost $1.5 million and has not done one thing to reduce gun crime in this country. ..."

- Impose a reverse onus on bail for all gun crimes, and
- Set more severe penalties for any breach of bail conditions."

"There are more guns out there than people think. While New Brunswick's cities are relatively small compared with metropolitan centres across Canada, the shooting death in downtown Toronto this week of an innocent 15-year-old girl out hunting for Boxing Day bargains isn't something Maritimers can ignore."

"'Are you kidding ?!?' my longtime business acquaintance inquired mid-bite during lunch. His incredulous look spoke volumes."

"'No, I’m not kidding,' I matter-of-factly replied. 'What would make you think I’m kidding?'"

"He laid his fork on the plate and cleared his throat. 'Well,' he measured carefully, 'you just don’t seem like the type.'"

“The type?” I queried.

“Well, uh, you know. You’ve always struck me as a real easy-going, friendly, very moral, ‘big-teddy-bear’ kind of guy. Sort of a ‘Clark Kent.’”

"'Yeah, I know you’ve always been a hunter,' he continued, 'but you just don’t strike me as the type of guy that would want to carry a handgun.'"

"'And just what ‘type’ of guy do you visualize?' I quizzed."

"Jack Scott's Senate Bill 489 - a 2003 bill that takes effect Sunday - is touted by gun-control groups as first-of-its-kind legislation. It targets a specific kind of accidental shooting, involving a single unspent round fired from a handgun thought to be unloaded."

"Semiautomatic pistols rechamber a bullet with each pull of the trigger, so a user can detach the magazine, believe the gun is empty, pull the trigger and only then discover that a live round was in the chamber. Under SB 489, new models of rim-fire semiautomatic pistols introduced to the California market after Sunday must have a disconnect mechanism to prevent firing when the magazine is removed. These models generally fire .22-caliber ammunition."

"Can an 8-year-old handle a gun? That's the question central to a bill in the Legislature that would allow kids as young as 8 to hunt in Wisconsin, under some restrictions."

"The answer here is no."

"The bill, which has passed the state Assembly and is likely to be taken up by the state Senate next month, would lower the hunting age from 12 to 8. But the 8- through 11-year-olds would have to share a gun or bow with an adult 'mentor,' who would have to be within arm's length of the child."
