"National Rifle Association First Vice President John Sigler says legislation now pending in the state House would levels the playing field for applicants."

"If the bill becomes law, a judge would have to issue the permit if the applicant meets the requirements and no grounds are present for denial. Current law requires applicants to convince a judge they have a compelling need for a permit."

"Few legislative offerings stoke the fires more in the General Assembly than ones dealing with handguns and their owners' right to carry them. When the National Rifle Association's high-paid lobbyists show up in Dover, many lawmakers take cover."

"But the latest proposed bill to change the method of awarding concealed-carry permits already has enough co-sponsors in both chambers to pass. And Gov. Minner hasn't suggested she would veto it if it gets to her desk. We think she should sign it."

"Yesterday's announcement by police in Chicago that a gun trafficker under federal investigation since last summer allegedly killed a 14-year-old child in a blaze of assault weapon fire is further proof of the need for local, state and Federal officials to take serious steps to combat illegal gun trafficking."

"Carail Weeks purchased a firearm last July that was recovered as the gun used in an armed robbery eight days later. Federal law enforcement authorities traced the gun to Weeks, according to the Chicago Tribune, who bought it from a dealership in Indianapolis notorious for selling guns later recovered in crime."

"Had federal gun laws been stronger, Weeks may not have been able to traffic that initial gun, or been able to purchase multiple guns at a nearby gun store also notorious for selling crime guns. ..."

"In this atmosphere of suspense and garrulous political environment the act of governance suffers. One of the oversights is the free flow of guns in the society without any legal act to check it. There are those who would say we have enough laws to check free flow of guns in this country. However, in a dynamic society laws need to be constantly updated to meet the requirements of those dynamisms. New laws that will carry the burden of societal expansion, growth and otherwise become necessary as events evolve. At the moment, there are tones and tones of guns in circulation in the country."

"Members of an anti-gay group who have carried signs at military funerals saying God wants U.S. soldiers to die would face increased jail time under a bill filed Thursday."

"The legislation would increase fines to $1,000 and raise jail time to one year for anyone who disturbs military funerals, said sponsor Rep. Stan Jordan, R-Jacksonville. Protesters now face up to a $500 fine and 60 days in jail."

"The bill doesn't specifically target Kansas pastor Rev. Fred Phelps, who says restrictions on what can be done at funerals would curb First Amendment rights. He leads a group that contends that U.S. soldiers in Iraq are being struck down by God for defending a nation that tolerates homosexuality."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
