IA: Local Lawmen Get High Powered Help

... "A new semi automatic AR-15 rifle will now be riding in patrol cars. This rifle is similar in firepower to the M-16, which is the main assault rifle in our military. Police can now hit targets up to 500 yards away. They say the extra reach, firepower and accuracy will help them keep up with street weapons."

" 'Most farmers out there have rifles themselves so it does add something to us and gives us confidence to be able to handle a situation if it ever came up,' says Deputy Sheriff, Troy McClimon."

"Deputy Sheriff, Robert Gonzales says the new weapon gives them an even chance with criminals with high caliber weapons. 'It's just something for our added safety and something to help us deal with our job better,' he says." ...

KABA NOTE:
Iowa is not a "shall issue" state, and getting a permit in some areas of the state is difficult -- if you're a lowly citizen. Meanwhile, these law enforcement officers use farmers' rifles to justify arming with what anti-gunners call "assault weapons".
 

Balancing act for Bush for political support, though not without skirmishes

"Bush's support of extending the assault rifle ban -- cheered by moderates -- is a largely symbolic gesture. Sentiment is strong in the GOP-controlled Congress to let the ban expire and Bush does not seem to be putting much energy into efforts to extend it. "
 

Court Gives Green Light to Sniper Lawsuit Against Assault Rifle Manufacturer

"A judge in Tacoma, Washington ruled Friday that a lawsuit brought by nine families of the Washington, D.C.-area sniper attacks against the gun dealer and manufacturer that supplied the assault rifle used in the shootings should proceed toward trial. The court rebuffed arguments by Tacoma gun dealer Bull's Eye Shooter Supply and assault rifle manufacturer Bushmaster Firearms that they are immune from responsibility for supplying guns to criminals."

QUESTION:

Would this same judge allow automobile manufacturers to be sued for the criminal misuse of their legal products? If not, what shall we call this decision?

Or maybe you have a great interest in the matter and are still confused about what the heck state lawmakers are doing. If you are, don't worry, because most people in Columbus are confused too.

With that in mind, here's an effort to clear up the muddy situation:

1. How long have state lawmakers been trying to pass a gun bill?

Since 1996. It gets reintroduced with each new General Assembly.

2. Why can't lawmakers get it passed?

Well, it's certainly not for a lack of support.

"The computerized system links New Hampshire to a national database of bullets and casings, so that a process that used to take months or even years takes only a few minutes."

The only way this works is by having a gun registry -- so markings can be traced to a specific firearm. (Even then, it's fast and easy to alter your firearm sufficient to render a ballistics registry useless.) And this is the "Live Free or Die" state?

"The Montana Supreme Court unanimously ruled this week that stealing a loaded gun is the same thing as using a weapon in the act of stealing; each is considered 'aggravated burglary' and carries stiffer penalties."

"Their decision stems from the case of Christopher Ray, a man who stole many guns -- loaded and unloaded -- in a nationwide crime spree that began in Ravalli County in 1999."

So if I steal a knife, or a baseball bat, or a tire iron, it's "aggravated burglary"?

Tharnish testified Wednesday that he was acting in self-defense when he stabbed the three youths in his front yard.

Tharnish and several of his friends testified that Tharnish pulled out a knife only after he and his father had been punched. Defense witnesses also testified that Vice and his friends had threatened Tharnish in the months before the incident.

Eventually, it will be completely legal to carry a concealed handgun in the state of Ohio.

With the Republican governor and Republican-controlled Senate on one side of the debate, and the Republican-controlled House on the other, a concealed-carry bill of some sort seems inevitable. The only question remaining is just how restrictive the law will be.

So where do liberals fit into the debate? Perhaps they should start by giving up their opposition and learning to embrace the gun.
