Jim Brady Frustrated by Gun Control Progress

"...They are frustrated that in the 13 years since the Brady Bill was signed, gun control efforts have largely stalled, and they single out the party they once proudly served."

"The Republican Party today is not what the Republican Party was 20 years ago... It's moved so far to the right. We were proud of politicians 10 years ago and 12 years ago who stood up and did the right thing. Today, I don't think they're doing the right thing. They're looking out for themselves."

"Starting at the grassroots and working with Million Mom March chapters and state-based allied groups, the organization will assemble a nationwide coalition of mayors to fight illegal guns, engage in sustained public education and media outreach, mobilize the support of law enforcement and ensure that the issue of illegal guns becomes a key political issue at the local, state and federal levels."

"Cynicism was not the only thing I took from that experience. I developed a new awareness of the problem of gun violence in our country. I began to focus on a concept I had learned in nursing school -- the public health crisis. My professors at Duke had drummed into me that if health care workers don't take the initiative to educate the public, preventable and devastating health problems can turn into a national disaster."

"That's how I began to look at gun violence, as a public health crisis. ..."

"On a 33-12 vote, Nebraska lawmakers have passed a measure to allow Nebraskans to carry concealed weapons."

"The measure is expected to be signed by Gov. Dave Heineman, which would make Nebraska the 48th state that allows people to pack hidden guns in some fashion. It would take effect on Jan. 1, 2007. Residents would have to complete training, pass a background check and pay a $100 permit fee. Concealed weapons will still be prohibited in schools, athletic events, churches, hospitals, bars, banks and anywhere else business owners don't want them."

"The Alabama District Attorney Association joined a Birmingham public policy group to oppose bills Jefferson County District Attorney David Barber called a 'license to kill.'"

"Across the country, mainly in the south, The National Rifle Association is sponsoring legislation it alternately calls 'Stand Your Ground, the Castle Doctrine, and Shoot First.' In Alabama House Bill 1 and its companion, Senate Bill 283, claims to 'extend the right to self-defense' by allowing anyone to use deadly force if they feel threatened by an aggressor intent on causing harm. The proposed law would grant civil and criminal immunity for arrest and prosecution when used in self-defense."

"...it seemed odd to some when an internal Pierce County announcement arrived electronically Wednesday morning promoting a gun sale to benefit the chaplaincy."

"By making a purchase, you accomplish three things: 1 – You have more stuff; 2 – You help the Chaplaincy; 3 – You help a retired citizen get rid of his guns in a meaningful way."

"The notice listed a handful of firearms – mostly rifles and scopes. One stood out: 'ARMI Jager Loano Italy Model AP 74 rifle (22 LR semi-auto black assault rifle style with sling and 1 magazine).'"

"Shortly after the notice went out to county employees, complaints started coming in. Why would the county be selling something identified as an assault rifle? Why would the chaplaincy be involved in selling guns?"

"...I will seize your property, pay you nothing, vandalise the grounds and, you can pay for the clean up bill, after I have gone. You will not be allowed to even venture onto your property unless you pay me admission fees for each visit. If you object, we will do something nasty to you."

"The owner’s reaction would be straight forward: contact the extortion and dangerous criminal detective squad of the police, to have the extortionist charged and thrown into prison. On my information, that is basically what the Minister of Sports, Justin Madden, and thus Bracks and the Cabinet and the ‘Major Events Committee’ did to the Melbourne Gun Club and its property, the Lilydale Range, at which the clay and skeet shooting Commonwealth Games competitions are being held."

 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.
