"Moral relativism and the entangling web of the mundane trappings of our entitlement society have allowed these heinous acts of senseless violence to creep into our culture only to be explained away by a society that believes everyone is a victim and therefore not responsible for acts committed. No matter how it is rationalized, people kill people, guns don’t kill people."

"Anti-gun legislation proposed by Mayor Bloomberg and Senator Schumer that would make it easier for local law enforcement to gain information on the origin of illegal guns, immediately ran into opposition from legislators yesterday."

"There were few signs that Mr. Schumer will be able to repeal the so-called Tiahrt Amendment, a Republican measure which he claims prevents local police departments from obtaining Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms data on the origins of illegal guns and which has passed the House and Senate each year since 2003."

"New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's lawsuit against 15 alleged 'rogue' firearms dealers in five states is political grandstanding run amok."

"The press and prosecutors in those five states ought to be asking Bloomberg why, if his investigators had positively identified these retailers and caught them in an illegal act, was the information not turned over to the proper authorities, including the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives?"

"Instead, the headline-hunting Bloomberg launched a civil lawsuit in what should be, if he is to be believed, a criminal action."

"Mayor Michael Bloomberg is backing Sen. Charles Schumer's bill giving local police access to federal gun tracing databases - and is blasting opponents of the plan as 'soft on crime.'"

"Bloomberg, who is suing 15 out-of-state gun shops for illegally selling firearms, wants to give cities the ability to file lawsuits against gun makers."

"The gun trace database, maintained by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, is critical because it can be used to link manufacturers and dealers to specific crimes. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says it's also needed for prosecutions."

"Guns & Ammo is a user-friendly guide, written in a breezy, matter-of-fact way. It carries gun news, first-person accounts of firearms, and reviews of particular rifles and accessories chockful of practical information for the gun enthusiast or hunter." ...

"Speaking of owning guns, I know there is fierce debate about the Second Amendment, but the layout on "How to Get Top Accuracy From Your Revolver" sealed the deal for me. The author points a gun at the reader, which sent me straight to my checkbook for a donation to the handgun control lobby. Isn't this what is meant by armed and dangerous?"

"The Massachusetts Million Mom March Chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the New England Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence joined a national coalition of gun safety groups and mayors of several American cities today to call for an end to the business of illegal gun trafficking, in our state and around the nation."

"The lethal business of gun trafficking moves guns from legal manufacturers to licensed dealers, and then, too often, to sales to prohibited buyers, converting them to illegal guns. These illegally sold guns hit the streets at an alarming rate, accounting for five out six guns recovered in crimes. It is estimated that 60 percent of Massachusetts crime guns are trafficked in from surrounding states with weaker gun laws."

"It is said, that when the people make a constitution, and delegate powers that all powers not delegated by them to those who govern is [sic] reserved in the people: and that the people, in the present case, have reserved in themselves, and in their state governments, every right and power not expressly given by the federal constitution...."

"In the first place, Mr. Wilson pretends to point out a leading discrimination between the State Constitutions, and the Constitution of the United States.--In the former, he says, every power which is not reserved is given, and in the latter, every power which is not given is reserved: And this may furnish an answer, he adds, to those who object, that a bill of rights has not been introduced...."
