"Some engineers in New Jersey say they are closing in on a 'smart' solution to curb violence committed with handguns: a gun that can be fired only by its owner."

"The prototype, developed at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, has pressure sensors embedded in the handle that recognize a person's unique grip."

"Michael Recce, who dreamed up the grip-recognition concept in 1999, said the only obstacles are time and money." ...

"Duke University economist Philip Cook estimates that if all handguns were personalized, more than 4,000 lives would be saved each year from fewer murders, accidents and teen suicides."

"Youíre so dedicated to this way of life, what do you say to your critics, to those who decry gun ownership?"

"Well, I get such total gratification that I inspire them to speak up; the statements my enemies make clearly indicate just how right I am. The people who condemn me for being on the board of directors of the NRA, are literally condemning the basic right of self-defence. How could a decent person ever recommend a law that only the decent people will be helpless? Gun control is about guaranteeing that good people will be helpless! Who could condone such a thing? ..."

"'If a devastating storm hits New Orleans, or anywhere else along the Gulf Coast or Atlantic Seaboard, we will expect the constitutional rights of citizens to be respected, not raped,' Gottlieb said. 'We're adopting a zero tolerance policy.'"

"Boston police say more and more old guns like the one found in Dorchester are turning up on the streets. Back in the 1990s, police say, guns used in crimes were usually new. But ever since the Brady Bill became law in 1994, anyone buying from a licensed gun dealer has been required to undergo a background check. The law does not apply to sales between individuals, and most states permit private sales at gun shows and flea markets, without records or background checks."

"According to Boston Police Superintendent Paul Joyce, criminals now favor older guns that have passed discreetly from owner to owner for many years before they ended up as crime guns."

"The Maryland governor's race has hardly begun, and Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is under fire for his stance on guns -- from both sides."

"In the past few weeks, Democrats and advocates of stricter gun laws have portrayed the Republican as a friend to gun owners, dating to his 1996 vote as a congressman to repeal the federal ban on assault weapons. Two years ago, they say, Ehrlich worked behind the scenes to block a similar assault weapons bill in the Maryland General Assembly."

"But plenty of gun owners say that although Ehrlich's almost four years as governor have represented a welcome breather from the kind of aggressive gun control initiatives enacted by a succession of Democratic governors, they have been disappointed because he has not done more for them."

"A former top bureaucrat says political expediency - not sound accounting - was the key factor in a decision to fudge a report to Parliament two years ago on the cost of the federal long-gun registry."

"John Wiersema told a Commons committee Tuesday he thought $21.8 million in computer development costs should have been reported as part of the registry's budget for fiscal 2003-04."

"He was overruled by other, more senior bureaucrats who decided at a meeting in February 2004 to put off booking the money until the following year."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.... We've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of government himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price. ó Ronald Reagan
