High-tech gun control (Letter)

"If scientists can send a radio signal to a robot on Mars or on a moon of a more distant planet to order its movement, then why don't we require small-arms and rifle manufacturers to install chips right into the grips and stocks of weapons that will radiate a detectable signal?"

"Sensors can be installed on light poles, or on buildings. The sensors can be monitored using a system similar to cell phones and signals may be relayed via computer/radio to alert a task force to the location of a firearm. The signal can be instantly run through a database verifying ownership, permit and licensing for the weapon. If no registration exists, then trained personnel can act to apprehend the violator."

"They are your neighbors, your friends; they are residents of Columbia. They are people you see at work, in the library and at church. They are lawyers, security guards, MU employees and Rotarians. And they are armed with HK Universal Self-loading Pistols."

The class was part of the Columbia and MU police departments’ spring Citizens’ Police Academy.

"The whole idea of gun safety is something that this Legislature has not addressed. We talk about gun rights, we talk about the right to bear arms — I totally support the Second Amendment, but I think we forget to talk about gun safety. We forgot to talk about kids who are staying home and gun owners who are negligent. We have failed to discuss those issues and I believe that the state has got to start debating those issues."

"I’ve introduced bills this session dealing with gun safety and they’ve yet to receive a hearing, but I think it’s something that the state needs to start talking about. Gun safety is something that this Legislature has failed to want to discuss."

"A University of Northern Iowa police officer who believes campus police should carry firearms will ask a Black Hawk County judge to determine whether state occupational safety officials should play a role in a dispute over UNI's ban on lethal weapons."

"Lt. Gary McCormack said he filed the lawsuit, to be argued today in Black Hawk County District Court, after the Iowa Occupational Safety and Health Administration refused to cite UNI for violating workplace safety laws."

"The Iowa Board of Regents has prohibited officers at UNI, Iowa State University and the University of Iowa from carrying firearms on duty. Instead, officers are equipped with electric shock devices, pepper spray and batons."

"One of the things the mainstream media loathe about the Blogosphere (and which I love) is our near-light-speed reaction time, especially to give the other side."

"I am speaking of Michelle Cottle’s article in the May 9th, 2005 edition of TIME, Shoot First, Regret Legislation Later, [Essay, last page] as Ms. Cottle reflects fairly accurately not facts or principles, but the true mocking hysteria in the anti-liberty lobby."

"That’s right, anti-liberty."

"Landers' coat was not entirely zipped up that day, and when the wind blew it open, a Dedham Police officer across the street zoomed in and noticed the gun. Upon request by the officer, Landers produced a valid five-year license issued in 1995 to carry the gun. But the problem was, state law required that he keep the weapon concealed."

"While the officer let Landers go without an arrest, the Adams Street resident soon after received notice from Dedham Police Chief Dennis Teehan that his Class A license to carry firearms had been revoked due to the incident." ...

"By denying a license to carry, Teehan has also limited the types of weapons Landers can hold in his vast historical collection. That's what bothers Landers the most."

"When 16-year-old Mark Drewes knocked on a neighbor's door in Boca Raton, Fla., and then ran away as a prank, he was shot dead by homeowner Jay Levin. Mr. Levin, who said afterward that he mistook the boy for a robber out to attack him, was sentenced to 52 weekends in jail for manslaughter."

"Now, 18 months later, the state has enacted a law that opponents fear will only encourage more gun owners like Levin to adopt a 'shoot first, think later' approach - and this time get away without punishment. But others see the new measure, which allows people to meet 'force with force' in public places without fear of punishment, as a vital way for people to protect their homes and families."
