"Glenn Beck is a conservative radio talk show host who claims to be neither Republican nor Democrat, and his talk-radio show is very popular among conservatives. Beck recently joined CNN Headline News of all places to host a nightly television show themed along the lines of his radio show. ..."

"Imagine the surprise regular viewers had Monday night when Beck's guest host Diane Dimond of Court TV fame ... interviewed Bob Ricker of The American Shooters & Hunters Association. Dimond introduced the interview by slamming the NRA, estimated there are between 190 and 250 million guns in the United States, and then stated 'I just think there are too many of them out there. Who needs an AK47 to go hunting?'" ...

"Safety catches do not always prevent firearm accidents and even newfangled biometric guns, which check the identity of a user by their fingerprint, cannot stop thieves from using stolen ammunition in other weapons."

"The way to make firearms really safe, says Hebert Meyerle of Germany, is to password-protect the ammunition itself."

"Meyerle is patenting a design for a modified cartridge that would be fired by a burst of high-frequency radio energy. But the energy would only ignite the charge if a solid-state switch within the cartridge had been activated. This would only happen if a password entered into the gun using a tiny keypad matched one stored in the cartridge." ...

... "... But this circumstance should, of itself, teach us great caution, lest it lead us into the great error of suffering public policy to be regulated by partiality or prejudice; and there are considerations connected with the possible result of this contest between the two parties of so much delicacy and importance to the United States, that our character requires that we should neither anticipate events, nor attempt to control them ..."

"The three men, one armed with a shotgun, approached a man and a woman ... around 4 a.m. and held them up. Instead of complying, however, the man pulled out a gun of his own and shot all three assailants."

"Loftus said the man was acting in self defense, and though he is currently being sought for questioning, police are treating him as the victim in the incident."

"A couple's fight turned deadly in the city of Saginaw overnight. It happened on the 2300 Block of Hanchett on Saginaw's west side around 1 a.m."

"This is not the first time police have visited the home. This is the city's 13th murder of 2006. But this one is not like any of the previous 12."

"One reason is that the prosecutor will not file charges against the woman who pulled the trigger. That woman turned herself into police after she admitted to shooting 27-year-old Damion West once in the chest, killing him."

"Prosecutor Mike Thomas says the woman acted in self defense and a source close to the investigation says West had a history of assaulting the woman." ...

"'I don't keep a gun on me, but there's one always with hand's reach,' she says, nodding towards a silver pistol."

"Just a week and a half ago, the owner of Todd's Food Store in Beech Island was forced to put it to use. On the afternoon of June 16th, three masked gunmen walked into the store ..."

"They’ve gathered in New York City, the best and brightest minds in the global gun ban movement. Oh, they don’t want you to think for a second that they’re actually interested in your guns. Kofi Annan as much as said so yesterday ... There’s nothing to fear from the UN when it comes to your guns."

"It’s too bad for Kofi that many of the countries attending the summit didn’t get his memo. ..." ...

"The statement from Indonesia’s representative was perhaps the clearest example of what these countries are aiming for."

"'We believe that no armed group outside of the State should be allowed to bear weapons. We also believe that regulating civilian possession ... will enhance our efforts to prevent its misuse. ...'" ...

"The United States said on Tuesday it was willing to endorse a set of principles aimed at keeping small arms out of the hands of groups intent on human rights abuse, genocide or breaking UN arms embargoes."

"But Washington would not back a formal agreement such as an international treaty imposing controls on weapons transfers across national boundaries, Undersecretary of State for Arms Control Robert Joseph said."

"'While we will not accept formal negotiations or a formal agreement on transfer controls, we are willing to consider text that encourages the adoption of a set of principles on arms transfers,' Joseph told a UN meeting focusing on the $1 billion-a-year illicit global trade in small arms." ...

"Bearing a message from the Russian who invented the world's most common assault rifle, activists will press governments at a U.N. conference on small arms to ensure such weapons aren't used to trample human rights."

"Such a philosophy applies to weapons of mass destruction, but not to small arms, and it will be the focus of much debate at the two-week conference."

Britain's government has made a similar proposal ... The United States, China, Russia, Egypt, India and others have not explicitly endorsed it." ...

"'Ultimately, they're offering a form of government support that makes government the only way citizens can seek protection, and Americans choke on that,' said Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive vice president." ...

"This week the UN is meeting in New York to review controls on the illicit arms trade that supplies terrorists and human rights abusers around the world. This conference will review an agreement that was established at the 2001 UN Small Arms Conference, and was the first global initiative on the illegal trade in small arms and light weapons. Calls for stronger regulation have been especially urgent from advocates familiar with conditions in regions that are most heavily impacted by protracted armed conflict, like Sudan. However, there has been concern that the U.S. will block progress and be unwilling to compromise on key issues." ...

"The United Nations is holding a conference beginning this week in New York that ironically coincides with our national 4th of July holiday. It’s ironic because those attending the conference want to do away with one of our most fundamental constitutional freedoms -- the right to bear arms."

"The stated goal of the conference is to eliminate trading in small arms, but the real goal is to advance a worldwide gun control movement that ultimately supercedes national laws, including our own 2nd Amendment. Many UN observers believe the conference will set the stage in coming years for an international gun control treaty." ...

"Metro Police formally accepted more than 130 assault rifles paid for by private donations. The high-powered weapons are intended to bridge the firepower gap between officers and heavily armed criminals."

"Metro says private donations for better weapons began pouring in after the shooting death of Sergeant Henry Prendes. Now that money is being used to beef up the firepower of Metro's patrol officers."

"Metro's newest tool -- a high-powered rifle -- can accurately hit a target at four times the distance of a standard department-issue pistol. Until now, any officer who wanted to carry a rifle on duty had to personally buy it." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: But according to the antis the sole purpose of these 'assault weapons' is to kill the most people in the shortest time possible. Why would the cops need them? Unless, of course, the antis lied.

"As of Saturday, the task force had made 155 felony arrests, including 64 for gun possession. The unit has also made 220 misdemeanor arrests, and executed 89 felony warrants and 101 misdemeanor warrants."

"And not only are porches and yards fair territory effective July 1, people may also (1) use deadly force to protect against carjacking and (2) with regard to other provocations, prosecutors will be barred from offering testimony that a shooter could have retreated from the scene or used lesser force."

"Why the NRA is so interested in the criminal code on this topic is not really clear. It's supposed to be a trade association that promotes gun ownership and gun possession rights. Maybe their point is that more people will buy and keep firearms if their use is less restricted." ...
 

AL: Restrictions on weapon types justified

FULL TEXT BELOW:

In R.D. Boyles' letter he refers to the public's right of weapon choice and any restriction of such. Private individuals are currently not permitted to legally own bazookas, tanks, bombs, fighter planes, etc.

So the general public is already restricted on choice of weapons. It is now just a matter of to what extent.

Mr. Boyles mentions trusting the public on choice of weapons and then mentions the need for equal firepower in self defense. Apparently he does not trust the public, but asks that all of us do.

Even if some can get whatever weapon they want regardless of the law, the law still should not permit the private citizen to own weapons which can kill dozens in a matter of seconds.

"Mr Fuller said Exposito waited in the car park until the couple left about 10pm, then threw a bucket of petrol on Sanchez and ignited it."

"He said Sanchez was burning when he ran back into the club, where bar staff doused the flames with water and wet tablecloths."

"Sanchez was taken ... to the Royal Brisbane Hospital with burns to 75 per cent of his body. He died on May 1, 2003." ...

"Balaguer said he told her she was lucky he had not been able to buy a pistol on a recent trip to Sydney or she and Sanchez would be dead." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Hooray for gun control! It saved Sanchez from being shot instead of spending the last 6 weeks of his life in agony in a burn unit.

OH: Editorial: It seems logical to conceal in a vehicle (OFCC)

"The Times Reporter out of New Philadelphia has penned an editorial in favor of the Ohio Senate passing HB347 and confirms reports that progress on the bill is stalled until November. Finally, a newspaper expounds common sense upon this silly notion that guns must be 'in plain view' while being carried under a concealed carry law (emphasis added by OFCC):"

"'It seems logical not to require motorists to keep their weapons in plain view. If an officer approaches a vehicle in which a weapon is in plain sight, it increases the chance that a tragic misunderstanding might occur. Rather, let motorists keep their guns locked up, and when approached by an officer, they should tell the officer immediately that they have a concealed carry permit.'" ...
