Chicago's 'Gang Book' Attacks Gun Rights as Tool Against Drug Gangs, Says CCRKBA
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) today accused the Chicago Crime Commission of exploiting the activities of drug gangs to attack gun rights."

"The Commission's new 272-page 'Gang Book' details Chicago's drug gangs and offers several recommended strategies to fight these criminals. Incredibly, at the top of the list, is a recommendation to limit handgun sales to one per month, and impose a ban on .50-caliber long range sport-utility rifles."

"'If this proves anything,' observed CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron, 'it's that the anti-gun obsession rampant in the office of Mayor Richard Daley is now infecting the Crime Commission. What's next? Will the city's public health experts decide that banning handguns and ugly rifles is one way to cure alcoholism or cancer?'" ...

"The chairman of an upcoming U.N. conference on the illegal trade of small arms has received more than 100,000 letters of complaint from Americans who say it could impinge on their constitutional right to bear arms, he said Wednesday."

"Many of the letters contained a form message available on the National Rifle Association Web site that complains the June 26-July 7 conference will take place on the July 4 Independence Day holiday, U.N. officials said. The message argues that the conference is meant to limit Americans' right to carry weapons." ...

"Kariyawasam said the conference will focus only on efforts to ban the illegal sale of weapons and would have no impact on private ownership." ...

... "It's hard to know how many botched and unnecessary raids there have been ... But in a forthcoming report for the Cato Institute, Radley Balko concludes that mistakes have been made in more than 200 raids over the past decade."

"He finds that overzealous raiders caused the deaths of a dozen nonviolent offenders, like recreational marijuana smokers and gamblers." ...

"'Prosecutors typically let police officers off the hook when they mistakenly shoot a civilian,' Balko says, 'on the theory that mistakes are understandable during the confusion of a raid. Fair enough. But civilians don't get the same deference. My research shows that when someone on the other end of a botched raid mistakes a police officer for an intruder and shoots in self-defense, his odds of facing jail time are about one in two.'" ...

"The American Civil Rights Union (ACRU) filed a brief amicus curiae on Friday, June 16 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in support of the plaintiffs in the case of Shelly Parker et al. v. District of Columbia."

"This is a potential landmark case where the plaintiffs are asking the Court to recognize that the Second Amendment does, indeed, establish a right of individual citizens to keep and bear arms." ...

"The brief also states, 'The courts cannot treat the Second Amendment as a politically incorrect, disfavored stepchild of the Bill of Rights. Fidelity to the Constitution requires that the Judiciary give it the same zealous protection as every other right stated in our founding document.'" ...

"A San Antonio teenager accused of shooting his father in the head remained in juvenile custody Wednesday."

"The 16-year old allegedly shot his father once in the head to protect his mother. Bexar County sheriff's deputies tell us the father was beating and choking his wife, when the teen pulled the trigger."

"'We do believe this was a domestic violence situation. Um, we do believe that the son came to the aid of the mom during an altercation with the father,' said Lt. Dale Bennett of the Bexar County Sheriff's Department." ...

"However, fearing he was a threat to himself and others, the judge ordered the teenager back into custody. So far no charges have been filed and investigators say there may not be." ...

Submitter's Note: Obviously he is a threat to others, just the way Tony Martin is a threat to burglars.

Attorney general hopeful Andrew Cuomo is expected to snag the support of the city police officers' union today at its Manhattan headquarters.

The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association nod comes two weeks after Cuomo rolled out a gun-control plan that mirrors Mayor Bloomberg's crusade - including a statewide coalition of mayors and a call for better technology to ensure only authorized owners use the guns.

Cuomo, who leads the polls in the four-candidate Democratic race, has already received the endorsement of the Sergeants Benevolent Association and the Uniformed Fire Officers Association. The winner of the Democratic primary will face former Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro.

"And opposition to the Brady Law. The platform calls for the abolishment of background checks on firearm purchases mandated by the Brady Law, which has prevented some million and a half criminals from purchasing guns." ...

"The Arizona Supreme Court will decide whether a change in state law dealing with self-defense cases is retroactive or starts from the date it became law."

"At stake is the recent conviction of Harold Fish, 59, who could serve up to 22 years for killing Grant Kuenzli ... and the case of Marcus Mendez Jr., charged with two counts of aggravated assault."

"Fish and Mendez say they acted in self-defense, but separate judges in the two cases had differing opinions on how a law signed in April by the governor affects their cases."

"The legal debate is over whether the change in state statute is substantive or procedural, with substantive meaning it applies only to future cases and procedural meaning it would be retroactive." ...

"The House-passed version of the bill, sponsored by Rep. Jim Aslanides, a Coshocton Republican, removes the requirement that gun-carrying motorists have the weapon in plain sight or locked in a container." ...

Thousands of guns confiscated in Los Angeles County were melted down at a Southland foundry Thursday to be recycled into rebar.

'These weapons are an example of the firepower that law enforcement personnel throughout the nation face on a daily basis,' Sheriff Lee Baca said as he held a Mac-11 semiautomatic pistol.

'All these weapons will be melted into construction steel to become freeways, parks, hospitals and schools,' he said.

More than 6,000 guns were scrapped -- because of their high nickel and chrome content -- at TAMCO Steel Inc. in Rancho Cucamonga.

Today's event was the 13th annual melt-down as part of 'Project Isaiah,' named for the biblical passage about beating swords into plowshares.

Across the nation, authorities say approximately eight children die each day from accidents involving firearms. For Southlake resident Sarah Close, the death of even one child is unacceptable." [emphasis added]

"Close has organized a chapter of Asking Saves Kids, a national organization devoted to protecting children from the hazards of handguns and other weapons that may be in their homes or the homes of friends. Safe storage of any firearm is essential to the safety of everyone who lives in a house and everyone who visits that house." ...
