"A recent op-ed from Philadephia Inquirer columnist Karen Heller, entitled 'Where's the outrage about gun violence?' has me asking a few questions of my own: Where is the outrage about nutty anti-gun reporting? How can so many people who shovel provably false statements on their readers keep their jobs? And was columnist Karen Heller some type of Freudian pen name playing off of Hellen Keller? She is, after all, apparently just as blind, though clearly far less intelligent." ...

"Viewers will soon get a chance to see retired middle school art teacher Dave Clark display his talents on a TV reality show."

"But he won't be painting or drawing. He'll be shooting."

"Clark, 64, has been interested in firearms since he was a child ..."

"This interest led Clark to take several firearms courses in the last six years, and to be a contestant on a new reality TV show that tests marksmanship and strategy."

"Clark, who worked as an art teacher at Junction Avenue Middle School in Livermore for more than 40 years, recently participated on Front Sight Challenge, now showing on the Versus Network. In the show, 40 law enforcement officers go head-to-head against 40 highly trained ordinary people, Clark among them." ...

"Weidle said it's not the first time he's had to defend his store from would-be robbers."

"'I've had this happen before,' he said. 'I shot two guys in here in 2001. ...'" ...

"Lawmakers in the Montana House of Representatives collectively thumbed their noses at the federal government Monday by approving two bills exempting guns from federal regulations and driver's licenses from national standardization requirements."

"The bills ... are driven by the same concern: the erosion of personal liberties by the federal government."

"Koopman said Monday his gun bill, House Bill 366, would inspire a home-grown industry of gun-makers who produce firearms to be sold in Montana. It also sends a message reaffirming states' rights." ...

"Koopman's HB 366 would exempt guns made in Montana from federal regulation under the commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution, as long as the guns remain inside the state." ...

"Gun-rights advocates say the measure grants law-abiding citizens the right to defend themselves against attackers without being forced to retreat."

"Opponents say it grants people the right to 'shoot first, ask questions later' and could turn Minnesota into the Wild West."

"Welcome to the latest debate about guns. The debate will land in Minnesota today as lawmakers introduce the measure known as the 'Castle Doctrine.'" ...

"In the eyes of Mesa County's top law enforcement officer, expanding the 'Make My Day' law ... would be a grave error."

"Mesa County District Attorney Pete Hautzinger said extending the effects of Colorado’s 'Make My Day' law to cover places of business ... would unnecessarily 'undermine the sanctity of the home in Colorado.'" ...

"He said the best example of why he is opposed to Gardner's bill is exemplified in a case he prosecuted in the early 1990s."

"Hautzinger, then a prosecutor under Steve ErkenBrack, said he was brought in to try a murder case out of Crested Butte, involving a man who lured his lover's husband into his business to kill him." ...

"Be not surprized therefore, that we, who are descended from the same common ancestors; that we, whose forefathers participated in all the rights, the liberties, and the constitution, you so justly boast [of], and who have carefully conveyed the same fair inheritance to us, guarantied by the plighted faith of government and the most solemn compacts with British Sovereigns, should refuse to surrender them to men, who found their claims on no principles of reason, and who prosecute them with a design, that by having our lives and property in their power, they may with the greater facility enslave you...."

"...The mad ambition, the lust of power, and commercial avarice, of Great Britain, arrogating to herself the complete dominion of the ocean, and exercising over it an unbounded and lawless tyranny, have left to neutral nations an alternative only between the base surrender of their rights, and a manly vindication of them. Happily for the United States, their destiny, under the aid of Heaven, is in their own hands...."

"...feel no hesitation in advising resistance by force; in which the Americans of the present day will prove to the enemy and to the world, that we have not only inherited that liberty which our fathers gave us, but also the will and power to maintain it...."

"The anti-gun op-ed by Dr. Clifford M. Herman ('Bowing down to NRA is dangerous,' Jan. 23) certainly fits in with the renewed push by the P-I for more gun laws. As with previous articles, this one demonizes the NRA, offers anecdotal insights and questions the meaning of the Second Amendment. What it does not do is address the essential question."

"Honest legislators must ask: Which gun laws, if any, will truly reduce violence? Thanks to the Clinton administration and the Centers for Disease Control, we have a pretty good idea. A group of scientists reviewed the extensive literature on the effectiveness of gun laws ... but they were unable to find convincing evidence that any gun laws have ever been effective." ...

"On Monday, February 5th, 2007 at noon on the steps of the State Capitol, the Twin Cities Million Mom March chapter will gather to remember young people who've been injured or killed because of guns. Two South High students have been killed in separate incidents. The Minnesota Million Moms believe each gun death ripples through the community, touching countless lives."

"Each year, firearms cause the deaths of an average of forty Minnesota young people and injure twice that many. The Million Moms believe that children and teenagers have the right to be safe at home, at school, and in their communities." ...

"Assistant district attorney Jim Farrell made clear the policy of his office on gun incidents in Sullivan County. 'There will be no plea bargains,' he said. A new state law passed in November 2006 tripled the penalty for carrying a loaded unlicensed handgun. The law now calls for a minimum of three-and-a-half years in state prison for anyone 16 years or older."

"This came as a surprise to some community members who turned out to a meeting with law enforcement officials sponsored by the NAACP on January 25. Several audience members said that if teenagers knew the penalty, perhaps some of them would think twice about carrying a gun." ...

"A report released earlier today by Vermont Attorney General William Sorrell attacking traditional firearms ammunition has been met with objection and firm resistance by experts in environmental management as well as the country's most significant and respected ammunition, firearms, hunting and shooting organizations. Experts from the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI), the organization founded in 1926 at the behest of the federal government and charged with establishing and publishing industry standards for safety, interchangeability, reliability and quality of ammunition, have been the most vocal in pointing out the myriad errors, omissions, misquotes and disinformation in Sorrell's opinion." ...

"On the surface the number is startling."

"113,000."

"That's how many Oklahomans have conceal-carry permits allowing them to carry a concealed firearm. That number was reached in the decade since the Self-Defense Act took effect in 1996."

"Before anyone gets nervous, though, and freaks out, we say stop and take a breath. The number is large, but it's not really a cause for alarm." ...

"Last Thursday, I questioned the decision of a Perth magistrate to exonerate a Coffin Cheaters bikie who fired a gun in a Subiaco nightclub when threatened by members of another gang."

"'The group were trapped with no real possibility of escape,' the magistrate said. 'It was an explosive situation. I find the firing of the gun was reasonably necessary under the circumstances.'" ...

"'One of the problems with the sudden emergency type of defence is that it has not been used a great deal in criminal practice because there are other specific defences of self-defence in Section 31 of the Criminal Code.'" ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. — Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
