"The Brady Campaign is conducting this nationwide survey of our members to understand your priorities for the 110th Congress. Your participation will help us demonstrate that Americans like you demand that strengthening US gun laws be near the top of the congressional agenda. Thanks for your participation!" ...

"1. GETTING ASSAULT WEAPONS OFF THE STREETS"

"Since the expiration of the federal Assault Weapons Ban two years ago, there has been a significant rise in violent crime and homicides."

"Force Science News recently reported on a landmark 5-year study of cop killers conducted by the FBI and detailed in a 180-page summary called 'Violent Encounters: A Study of Felonious Assaults on Our Nation’s Law Enforcement Officers.'"

"While the study focused specifically on criminals who have assaulted officers, the facts emerging from this study are a damning indictment of the entire gun control movement and proof of what gun rights activists have long known about violent criminals." ...

"The leaders of the National Rifle Association are so obsessed with the perceived threat to the Second Amendment's right to keep and bear arms that they won't tolerate anyone who strays from NRA doctrine - even if it's one of the NRA's most famous and loyal members." ...

"... Zumbo dared to express an opinion that differs with the NRA's unbending stance that all guns are good, including military-style assault rifles." ...

"The reaction from the NRA and those it controls has been, to quote The Washington Post, 'swift, severe and unforgiving.'"

"Zumbo's weekly TV program on the Outdoor Channel, his career with Outdoor Life magazine and his corporate sponsorship with Remington Arms Co. have either been terminated or suspended." ...

Submitter's Note: Earlier versions said "... Second Amendment that grants the right ...".

"I also was, until recently, a member of the National Rifle Association. I turned in my membership card after the midterm elections because of the organization's unabashed support of crooked Congressman Tom DeLay (R-TX) and racist Senator George Allen (R-VA)." ...

"I also know Jim Zumbo ... Zumbo is both a straight shooter and a straight talker who says what he thinks - an admirable trait in most circles but not in the blinders-driven world of the NRA and gun fanatics." ...

"Zumbo is known throughout the hunting world as a great writer and expert on all things shooting."

"Then, something difficult to explain happened. The words penned by Zumbo on Feb. 16 caused organizations like Remington, Mossy Oak, the NRA, and Outdoor Life magazine to drop him like a rock." ...

"The right of Americans to bear arms ... will get a microscopic examination by presidential candidates in the coming months. I won't pretend gun owners are a homogeneous group - anything but - but we do share some characteristics and opinions that wannabe presidents should know about:"

"Responsible gun owners consider guns as tools. ... We use guns for hunting, target shooting and self-protection, not necessarily in that order."

"We apply for and receive concealed weapons permits, but it's not because we plan to carry a gun around. We want be able to legally transport guns in our vehicles ... We store most of our guns in safes, but often keep one nearby at night, because we are responsible for the safety of our families." ...

"The American Bar Association is suiting up against the National Rifle Association over an issue that pits property rights against gun rights: Should firearms be allowed in the personal vehicles of employees while they are at work?" ...

"Do the lawyers really think that ... a policy against firearms in personal vehicles [would] have stopped Doug Williams from putting five guns into his truck that July 2003 morning when he used two of them to kill six co-workers and wound eight others at the Lockheed Martin plant in Meridian, Miss.?" ...

"At this point, police said the shooting was justified."

"'(The homeowner) feared at that point, the burglar was hunkered down. He didn't know if he was taking a position to fire at the homeowner,' said Lt. Mark Green." ...

Hunt said removing the orange tip is dangerous because the device looks like an actual gun."

A 15-year-old middle school student in Greenville County has been arrested after an elementary school student found a loaded gun left on a school bus.

Sheriff's deputies say the Skyland Elementary School student found the loaded .25 caliber pistol under a seat Friday afternoon as he returned with about 40 other students from a field trip.

Master Deputy Michael Hildebrand says the teen from Blue Ridge Middle School had taken the gun from his father's car on to the bus Thursday. Hildebrand says the teen was afraid his dad would find out, so he hid the gun under a seat on the school bus that afternoon.

The middle school student has been charged as a juvenile with possession of a weapon on school property.

"Let's see, do you think pretty much anyone who wants an assault weapon should have one, or do you think that's something that should be limited to law enforcement agencies and the military?"

"If you think that's a no-brainer, so did Congress when in 1994 they passed the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which required domestic gun manufacturers to stop the production of assault weapons. This ban applied to 19 highly specific types of semi-automatic weapons and ammunition clips holding more than 10 rounds. The ban did not apply to weapons for the military or for use by police units." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

House Democrats are expected to launch a battle today against a House bill they fear could make South Carolina a considerably more dangerous place to live by relaxing the state's concealed weapons law.

Under the bill, sponsored by Rep. Greg Delleney, R-Chester, South Carolina would drop its reciprocity clause. It currently allows only residents from states with which South Carolina has an agreement to carry concealed weapons here.

If passed, the measure would let anyone with a permit to carry a gun in another state carry one here with no further approval required.

Democrats say some states issue concealed weapons permits to 16-year-olds and do not require thorough background checks.

"A bill that would ban 45 assault weapons in Maryland, focusing on rifles, drew a big turnout today, with supporters calling it a common-sense measure to protect residents and police, and with opponents saying it would fail to keep them out of criminals' hands."

"The bill, which was heard in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, has the backing of Gov. Martin O'Malley, a Democrat who has testified in favor of such bans in the past." ...

"The bill would prohibit a person from transporting, selling or buying one of the 45 weapons in Maryland. It designates 'assault long guns' and 'copycat weapons' as guns that would be affected. The General Assembly has come up short in passing such a ban for four straight years." ...

"A crime is committed with an assault rifle in Maryland at least every 48 hours, according to a report issued last fall by the group CeaseFire Maryland."

"A federal ban on assault weapons was approved in 1994 with the support of former presidents Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald R. Ford and Richard M. Nixon, and others including former Sen. Barry Goldwater. This law was allowed to expire in September 2004."

"Gun manufacturers who sought to evade the law designed 'copycat' weapons like those used by the D.C. snipers to terrorize residents a little more than four years ago." ...
-------

KABA Note: In other words gun manufacturers sought to comply with the law by removing the design features that made their guns 'assault weapons'. In Brady-speak 'evading' means 'comlying'.

"Gun owners looking to reload would have to show a permit every time they buy ammunition, if a bill backed by Durham officials gains state approval."

"The proposal championed by the Rev. Melvin Whitley, a local community activist, will face opposition from gun-rights groups."

"Whitley told state lawmakers and Durham City Council members Monday that anyone over 18 can buy ammunition without being subject to any background check. That means felons, who aren't allowed to own guns or ammo, can buy bullets unfettered."

"Requiring a permit to buy bullets, just as the state does for firearms, is a 'no-brainer,' he said." ...

"But Paul Valone, president of Grass Roots North Carolina, a gun-rights lobbying group, called the idea 'ludicrous.'" ...

"Via its Web site, www.county.lapeer.org/sheriff, the department is auctioning off a fully automatic M16, dating to the mid-1970s and capable of firing about 700 rounds a minute. The only requirement is that bidders have a machine gun permit -- available to any adult who doesn't have a criminal record."

"Purchased by the department for $500 in the '70s, the weapon, which Lapeer's law enforcers thought might be needed in the event of an emergency like a hostage crisis, has never been fired outside of a shooting range. Undersheriff Robert Rapson said Monday he thinks it may be worth as much as $17,000 now." ...
