Milwaukee Mayor Should Campaign for Concealed Carry to Blunt Violent Crime, Says Second Amendment Foundation
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett should ignore anything he heard at a recent anti-gun mayors' summit in New York, and instead trust his own citizens to fight violent crime in the city by enabling them to fight back, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) said today."

"Before the end of April this year, the city had posted 26 murders, including 19 involving firearms."

"'Contrary to what the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel implied in an April 30 editorial,' noted SAF founder Alan M. Gottlieb, 'these homicides were not caused by firearms, they are the work of armed criminals in a city where honest, law-abiding citizens cannot legally carry concealed handguns for their personal safety because Wisconsin's anti-gun governor does not trust the citizens who elected him. ...'" ...

"... That the people, (that is, such as shall be successively chosen to represent the people,) are the best keepers of their own liberties, and that for many reasons. First, because they never think of usurping over other men's rights, but mind which way to preserve their own.'" ...

"... If it is meant by the people, as our author explains himself, a representative assembly, 'such as shall be successively chosen to represent the people,' still they are not the best keepers of the people's liberties or their own, if you give them all the power, legislative, executive, and judicial. They would invade the liberties of the people, at least the majority of them would invade the liberties of the minority, sooner and oftener than an absolute monarchy, such as that of France, Spain, or Russia, or than a well-checked aristocracy, like Venice, Bern, or Holland." ...

"What's the most fundamental of all human rights?"

"The right to life, of course."

"Without it, all other rights are meaningless after all, if you're dead, you clearly can't exercise any of them."

"Now, if it means anything at all, the right to life must confer the right to preserve one's own life. And if the right to self-preservation has meaning, it must include the right to procure the means with which to defend one's life and liberty."

"All of which is to say, the right to life necessitates the right to gun ownership."

"Liberals would have us believe this is some nutty notion of the 'far right' meaning anyone more conservative than Hillary Clinton but history disagrees. ..." ...

"As a nation, we're reminded daily of the fearsome future we face. Terrorist attack, bird flu, hurricanes, earthquakes - disasters both natural and man-made are inevitable."

"So it's worthwhile to note how government behaves in reaction to the disasters we're told to prepare for."

"In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans leaders and other government officials ordered law enforcement officers to go door to door to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens. At gunpoint."

"That's a first in American history. No one really knows how many lawful firearms remain impounded."

"There were no lights, no phones, no 911, no police protecting neighborhoods. Gangs of thugs roamed and ruled the streets." ...

"The line in the sand has been drawn. Either you stand with the 2nd amendment or against it. And this time, there'll be penalties for infringing on the rights of law abiding Americans."

"The National Rifle Association is issuing a challenge to our nation's mayors and police chiefs: sign a pledge that you will never take the guns from those you serve. The impetus for this is obviously the confiscation of firearms from residents of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. But there is a growing concern that mayors across the country are becoming the frontline soldiers in the latest fight for more gun control laws." ...

"'Mayors and police chiefs have already sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States in their oaths of office. So signing this pledge should be just as effortless,' NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre said a day before the 4 million-member group opens its annual convention in Milwaukee."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The New York Police Department has warned officers to watch out for a type of rare custom-made pistol, disguised as a cell phone.

Federal authorities have been issuing warnings about the specially made .22 caliber handgun since at least 2000, when several were recovered by law enforcement authorities in Europe.

The weapons, which use a spring-wound percussion system to fire up to four .22 caliber bullets, have continued to surface occasionally overseas.

The NYPD issued a warning to its commanders about the weapon in a directive on May 11, the New York Post reported.

The memo included pictures of the weapon and a description of how it works. It asked police conducting security screening at police headquarters or borough courthouses to be cautious handling cell phones during searches.
