"They like to avoid the term genocide because it seems to carry an extra measure of opprobrium that offends the governments engaged in such mass murders."

"Whatever you call it, the government-sponsored murder of thousands or even millions of people of one color, religion, cultural difference by another group of a different color, religion or cultural difference is the most heinous kind of genocide.

"These genocidal horrors take place not because of guns, but because one faction fears or hates another, and the one that contributes the bodies of the dead is the one that cannot defend itself. ..."
 

Feds Go All Out to Kill Spy Suit

"When the government told a court Friday that it wanted a class-action lawsuit regarding the National Security Agency's eavesdropping on Americans dismissed, its lawyers wielded one of the most powerful legal tools available to the executive branch -- the state secrets privilege."

"That privilege allows the government to tell a judge that a civil case may expose information detrimental to national security, and to ask that testimony or documents be hidden or a lawsuit dismissed. That extraordinary executive power was established in English common law and upheld in a 1953 Supreme Court case involving the fatal crash of a secret bomber."

 

The Call of the Gun Lobby

"It is a ghastly fact of public safety that for the past three years the most basic information about illegal gun trafficking in America has been hermetically classified as a state secret... But — shhh — not any more: not since a malleable Congress and administration buttoned up reams of vital information by putting the privacy of unscrupulous gun dealers over the safety of the public."

"And now the Republican-led House is preparing to make the secrecy restrictions even more lunatic by actually leaving police officers subject to felony conviction if they dare to share interesting data on illicit dealers with colleagues in other departments."

"A federal judge earlier this week slapped down a law enacted last fall by San Francisco voters that made it illegal for any resident of that city to keep a handgun. But although the ruling led to celebration by gun-rights advocates, it was far from being a major victory for Second Amendment rights."

"That's because Superior Court Judge James Warren's ruling was the right decision, but for the wrong reason."

"Yesterday, a week before a UN conference on the small arms trade begins in New York, he added his voice to growing calls for an international treaty that would curb sales of his own creation. 'I don’t worry when my guns are used for national liberation or defence,' he told The Times. 'But when I see how peaceful people are killed and wounded by these weapons, I get very distressed and upset. I calm down by telling myself that I invented this gun 60 years ago to protect the interests of my country.'"

"They missed each other by a mile, but did manage to hit 4-year-old Nashay Little, who was playing in the street."

"By all accounts, Marty Houglan shouldn't have been able to buy a gun in November 2003. At the request of his family, the Guilford County Sheriff's Office had put him on a list of those not to be issued gun-purchase permits."

"But by using the address of a temporary residence in Lenoir County, the mentally ill Greensboro native was able to get a new driver's license and gun permit there. He took the permit to a Greensboro gun shop, where he bought a .38 special and ammunition."

"Two months later, he shot himself in the head. Houglan died at Moses Cone Hospital."

"Some gun advocates are convinced buybacks have no effect whatsoever -- or worse, a negative effect. Those at the opposite end of the conversation, including many in law enforcement, believe that simple, sustained subtraction reduces crime over time."

"Jack Smith Jr. likes to think of himself as somewhere in the middle. He's not out to change the world, not out to irritate the NRA, not out to mess with anyone's Second Amendment rights. He's just sick of all the senseless death."

"Talk to East Manatee hunter safety instructor Dave Klein, and the fact he savors and utilizes Florida's outdoors surges to the surface. He easily recounts the highs and lows of the recent speckled perch season at Okeechobee along with tales of big bass and memories of deer and hog hunting in East Manatee and about the continent. He pridefully brings up trips during which he introduced young friends and kin to the outdoors and what those young individuals accomplished."

"For 13 years, Klein has focused on passing on the basics of hunting ethics and firearm safety to classes all over this part of the state and was recently named Florida's 2006 'Hunter Safety Instructor of the Year.'"

'Assault weapon' definition has been altered by liberals (Letter)
Submitted by: News Director

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
FULL TEXT BELOW:

An assault rifle is a term that describes a type of automatic rifle with selective fire control. The term was coined during World War II to describe any firearm used to "assault" the enemy.

Through the liberal media it is now used to describe any weapon that cosmetically appears military. This is not technically correct as a true assault rifle can fire more than one round with a single pull of the trigger. It is called a machine gun.

Support your Second Amendment and ban criminals -- not guns. You may own an "assault weapon" and not even know it. If the liberals have their way, you may have to give up your semi-auto deer rifle. Think about it.

"Meet 'Sheriff' Richard Mack: FBI Academy graduate, former militiaman and devout Mormon. Mack’s Libertarian Party leanings run the gamut. Down with leftie love, he wants to legalize marijuana and pimp-slap Sen. Orrin Hatch out of office. Uptight and right, Mack wants to can government welfare, public schools and public Section 8 housing. If Mack had his way, charity would be the sole domain of churches and private nonprofits."

"'The bottom line is, I don’t fit the mold,” he says."

"...He’ll be running against Democrat Jim Pederson from Phoenix, a shopping center developer and former state Democrat chairman as well as the incumbent Republican Jon Kyl, also from Phoenix."

"Take a close look, if you will, at the photo copied page below. The copy is of Page XV from Volume I of Elliot's Debates from our United States Government website 'The Library of Congress' which has a section named 'American Memory', (linked to actual page). Pay particular attention to the second line down, (on the left hand side). Which reads 'Rights of the citizen declared to be --'. Then look at the fourth line down below the aforementioned heading that reads 'To keep and bear arms'. Below the photo copy is a description of Elliot's Debates, also directly quoted from the United States government website."

"Below the photo copied page, and United States government description of Elliot's Debates, you will find pertinent quotes from one of the Debates that covered our Second Amendment Right in detail. After which, you will discover quotes from the top, and highly respected, U.S. Constitutional legal authorities. These quotations prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the government(s) have no authority whatsoever over the Right of The People to Keep and Bear Arms. That this was one of the specific rights that was set aside, and reserved exclusively, by We The People."

"A teen is shot dead outside a party, a bullet in the head. Nobody has been caught. A 52-year-old man shoots a friend three times in the deep of night, police say. Bullets in the chest and head. One of York County's most beloved principals, a lady who gave her whole adult life to other people's kids, is shot twice by her own daughter, police say."

"All in York County in the past several weeks."

"If whomever shot that teen didn't have a gun, maybe the teen wouldn't be dead. Might be the same for the dead man. Or the wounded principal."

"Montreal police Constable Giovanni Di Legge, who works out of LaSalle, is all too familiar with the trouble caused by BB guns."

"'There was an incident not long ago at a local bus stop,' he said. 'A woman saw a teenager get on a city bus with what looked like a real gun tucked into his pants. She was terrified.'"

"Refusing to get on the bus, the woman called police."

"'When the police station gets a call that somebody's out there with a firearm, it's Priority One,' Di Legge said. 'A group of officers was dispatched. They stopped the bus, got on and approached the teenager.'"

"Only then could they see that the weapon was a BB gun."

"Contrary to a June 12 People's Forum letter-writer, there is definitely such a thing as 'crime gun.' That is a gun that is used in the commission of a crime.
No one wants to obstruct 'law-abiding citizens' from owning guns. But had laws been in place on July 1, 2002 to remove all guns from the possession of Alan Douglas Gates, who was not a 'law-abiding citizen' and had not been law-abiding for many years, my precious ones would still be here with their loving families (Feb. 13, 2003 news story 'Killer gets 3 life sentences, no parole')."

"The more laws passed and enforced to keep guns out of the hands of people who have a tendency or history of violence and are not 'law-abiding,' the better. ..."

"Nearly 300 firearms, 49 non-firearms, and 6,713 rounds of ammunition were taken out of B.C. homes by police in the first week of June. But not through the all-too-common house raids, which often net drugs and weapons from criminals."

"These items were handed over as part of the current gun amnesty – firearms and bullets no longer needed or wanted by their owner. For the entire month of June, residents of B.C. in possession of any type of unwanted gun or ammunition can have the items picked up and destroyed, without fearing the law. The end result, says solicitor general John Les, is a lower number of guns kicking around in our homes, which could be susceptible to theft."

"It's too early to say whether the highest increase in violence in 15 years is a blip or trend. Some criminologists worry that the focus on anti-terrorism neglects street crime. Certainly in Palm Beach County, adjoining neighborhoods in West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach have become two of the state's worst places for gun violence." ...

"Counting on lawmakers won't work, either. Congress is actually considering two bills that would make it more difficult for the government to shut down corrupt gun dealers and harder for police to trace weapons."

"In Todd Jackson's letter he indicates there is no need for assault weapons. He's wrong. He, like many liberals, is propagandizing simply to chastise and blame the Republicans." ...

"There are legitimate uses of these so-called assault weapons: Aside from the need for equal firepower in self-defense (especially post-9-11) and plinking, those like the M-14 and AR-15 are used in state and national matches (e.g., Camp Perry). Mr. Jackson, what happens if these weapons are banned?"

The "assault weapon" ban didn't stop the [World Trade Center/Pentagon] terrorists, Brady checks didn't stop them, the high capacity magazine ban didn't. Right to Carry would have. If it had saved only one tower and the people in it, it would have been worth it. GUN CONTROL KILLS. — LTC Stasski, 9/11/01
