" 'I think it's a real myth that people would be able to arm themselves and avoid being shot,' said Tony Bullock, the mayor's spokesman. 'Chances are very good that they would accidentally shoot themselves or that the gun would find its way into the hands of a child, which is not what we want.' "

-------
Since Mr. Bullock brings up the issue of myths, let's dispel a few by sending him a copy of Gun Facts 3.2 by Guy Smith or simply directing him to our OpSD site. Use this form to contact the Mayor
 

AZ: Lawmaker is locked and loaded for tough legislative fight

"State Rep. Randy Graf dreams of a nation unafraid to speak of God or to freely dispense guns. A nation where invoking the Lord's name in the Pledge of Allegiance would never be questioned and where the right to own and carry any weapon at any time would not be impaired."

"He dreams of a state within that nation where there would be no law requiring citizens to obtain a concealed-weapons permit. A state where carrying a concealed weapon would not be treated as a crime. A state where law-abiding citizens could not be denied the right to carry weapons anywhere they wished. He pictures a state where so many well-armed citizens were walking around that no terrorist invader would risk setting foot on our soil."

"The truth is that Graf need not simply imagine such a place. It exists. ...It's called Iraq."

The obscenity of the comparison this poor excuse for a journalist provides is beyond words. Write him at ed.montini@arizonarepublic.com.

"Mayor Daley is putting gun control back on the table."

"Capitalizing on Democrats' new control of the Illinois legislature, Daley today will unholster three new statewide gun control proposals that would boost the cost of a firearm owner's ID card, lengthen the wait to buy a handgun and raise the penalty for having a secret gun compartment in a car. He's also resurrecting a measure requiring gunmakers to test-fire their products and record the unique 'fingerprint' they leave on bullets."

"Enough about the Constitution already! C'mon folks they outlawed it a long time ago. It seems like forever since anyone could possess more than an ounce of the Constitution and not do jail time. So why do people even bother to claim that there is such a thing as Constitutional rights? The document was written over two hundred years ago by girlie men who wore powdered wigs, knickers and had frilly fabric hanging out all over their clothes, with big sissy buckles on their shoes."

Political correctness is the death of culture. It is thought control. It is censorship. For Americans, who are supposedly living in the freest country on Earth, it should be an outrage. If it manifests itself in government programs, as it is now doing in the case of Civil War monuments, it is unchecked tyranny. Worst of all are Academia's racially-PC attacks upon our Founding Fathers. Any country which dissembles its historical origins and its past has no future.

"While government has no business unnecessarily or unreasonably restricting law-abiding citizens' constitutional right to bear arms, it shouldn't be weakening or erasing laws that help the cops nail armed bad guys."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
