LA: governor to summon National Guard
Submitted by: Robert Tims

"Acting at the mayor's request, Gov. Kathleen Blanco said Monday she would send National Guard troops and state police to patrol the streets of New Orleans after a bloody weekend in which six people were killed."

-------
Submitter's Question: I thought that neither the National Guard nor any other military organization were to be used for police under the Posse Comitatus law. This happened during Katrina where soldiers were pointing M16s at civilians. What is happening? Martial Law? I, for one, would appreciate it if anyone can explain this. Thanks.

"In what can only be a carefully-timed, deliberate insult to the United States and its Constitution, the United Nations is hosting a conference on global gun control aimed directly at our Second Amendment, on dates that include our national holiday, July 4."

"...Gottlieb will attend the conference, but he suggests that this may be an opportune time for Congress and the White House to reconsider this nation's level of financial support for an international organization that now wants to write a treaty that specifically attacks a cornerstone of our federal constitution, and the lynchpin to our liberty."

"This just in: 'An Ohio gun went berserk in a crowded shopping mall, shooting six people before reloading and firing three more shots at fleeing shoppers. The shooting spree ended when the gun's owner tackled and subdued it. The gun's owner had no explanation for his gun's actions. Police have taken the gun, a .357 Smith & Wesson Model 13, into custody and it is locked up in Pete's Pawn Shop awaiting disposition of the case.'"

"Essentially, that is the liberal case in favor of banning all handguns as a matter of public safety."

"Child safety experts at the University of Kentucky are urging all parents to participate in the ASK (Asking Saves Kids) Campaign to ask their neighbors if they have a gun in the home and if it is safely stored before sending their child over to play. National Ask Day 2006 is June 21."

"President Bush’s claim above that he is not 'trolling through the personal lives of millions of innocent Americans' is no more credible than his earlier claim that the government does not tap the telephone calls of American citizens without a court warrant: 'Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires — a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we’re talking about chasing down terrorists, we’re talking about getting a court order before we do so.' ..."

"Generally, governments spy upon their enemies. ...The revelation that the Bush administration is spying upon all Americans does not bode well for continued freedom in the United States."

Crime fight wrongly targets gun rights

"Guns are a cultural staple of Southern life. A lot of Southern males grew up in rural settings and moved to large cities and suburbs around Atlanta, as I did. While we were growing up in the '70s and '80s, our relatives gave us BB guns, pellet guns and .22- caliber rifles to hunt with and kill squirrels, rabbits and birds."

"Oftentimes, I went out alone to hunt or went with my uncles and neighborhood friends who had their own guns. We knew the dangers of the weapons that we carried and were very careful with what we shot at. Sometimes we would even eat what we killed. As we grew up, the next progression in hunting was big game for a lot of us."

They are members of the newly formed Hopkins High School Trap and Skeet Team, believed to be the only school-sponsored firearms shooting team in the state."

"Arriving at a tawdry strip joint to answer a gun call, a pair of Toronto police officers spotted a dozen men loitering around their cars in the parking lot. They appeared suspicious, if peaceful."

"Operating on an assumption that any gun call is a cause for concern, the police set up a roadblock at the parking lot and stopped the first vehicle that approached. After a confrontation that turned rough with the occupants -- Wendell Clayton and Troy Farmer -- the police uncovered a pair of concealed, loaded semi-automatic handguns in their car."

"What had begun humbly enough, as a routine slice of urban street life in the early morning hours of Sept. 24, 1999, has steadily churned into a legal test of the limits of police search powers."

New and Improved 20mm Sniper Rifle

"A South African firm (Denel) has introduced an upgraded version of its 20mm sniper rifle. This weapon is intended mainly for destroying equipment at long ranges. The latest version of the NTW 20 can be quickly equipped with either a 20mm barrel (producing a 59 pound weapon) or 14.5mm (a Russian caliber, producing a 64 pound weapon.) The rifle uses a three round magazine. The 20mm projectile weighs four ounces, and moves at 2,200 feet per second. The 2.25 ounce 14.5mm bullet moves at 3.400 feet per second."

"That's why the 14.5mm barrel is heavier. Moreover, the operational range of the 14.5mm round is 1,800 meters, while for the 20mm it's only 1,300 meters. In the hands of an expert shooter, both rounds can hit targets over 50 percent farther. The only 14.5mm ammo available is armor-piercing incendiary. The 20mm has that, plus a high explosive round."

"...But it will hold an important conference in June and July to assess the results of its voluntary program to tackle illegal small arms (gun-running), five years after it was unanimously approved by all member states, including the United States."

"This has nothing to do with a global gun ban and does not deny the legal right of law-abiding citizens to own small arms in accordance with their national laws."

"Why don't lawful gun owners support the gun registry? ..."

"A good law should have the willing support of those it serves. Yes, I said 'serves' because that is what truly good law does - it serves the People rather than enslaves them. In Canada the cultural minority of lawful gun owners have been subjected to ever-increasing regulatory pressure for many decades at the hands of a succession of governments from both ends of the political spectrum. We believe that the way a government treats its gun owners it a bellwether of how it will eventually treat all citizens. One has but to do a bit of geographic and historical study to see that this is true."
