CCRKBA Says D.C. 'Crime Emergency' Is Result of 30 Years of Gun Control
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Tourists robbed at gunpoint on the National Mall, a political activist murdered in Georgetown, robberies up 14 percent and armed assaults up 18 percent; these are the fruits of three decades of restrictive gun control in Washington, D.C., the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today."

"'For 30 years,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, 'we have witnessed the cruel hoax of restrictive gun laws in our nation's capitol. The insanity of gun control is revealed in the murder, rape, assault and robbery statistics that make the District of Columbia the crime capital of America. This is what happens when law-abiding citizens are told their Second Amendment rights have been suspended through elitist government fiat, and that they cannot possess the tools to defend themselves against criminal predators.'" ...

"Demographers say that the red states are growing faster than the blue states, and that goes for the red counties within the blue states as well. So, conservatives in general, and gun owners in particular, only need to sit back and keep having babies, right?"

"Not necessarily. Ever hear of rotten boroughs? They were election districts in 18th century England that were designed geographically but had experienced huge losses of population ... Other districts, of course, represented many, many more voters. Yet all members of Parliament had the same vote. Not very fair, most would say ..." ...

"Nearly a century after its introduction the Model 1911 semi-automatic pistol remains one of the most popular styles with shooters around the world. Even after service in every major military conflict since World War I, the tried and true 1911 design continues to be duplicated or refined by most major pistol manufacturers and is widely used in competition, law enforcement and military applications."

"Over the years I've shot a number of 1911s from Springfield Mil-Spec basic models to Colt Gold Cup and Delta Elite versions. Recently I had the chance to run a number of rounds through a Kimber Custom Stainless II semi-auto 1911 chambered in .45 ACP and found it to be an exceptional firearm." ...

Four youths tried to rob a pizza deliveryman at gunpoint Tuesday night, but the deliveryman pulled out his own gun and held one of the robbers until police arrived, police reported.

"Kunkle has fired more than 30 officers for misconduct since taking office, 14 of them since June. The firings include two officers accused of drunken driving and an officer accused of stealing tires from the police impound lot." ...

A former San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy was sentenced to 40 years to life in prison on Thursday for the murder of his son.

James Smith was found guilty of shooting his 20-year-old son in the family's Hesperia home on Aug. 27, 2004, following a physical confrontation between the two.

Prior to sentencing, Smith said he was sorry his son, Josh, was dead.

Smith, 58, received 15 years to life for second-degree murder and 25 years to life for the gun enhancement, said Deputy District Attorney Anil Kaushal.

Plans to move a rifle range from Makoshika State Park to nearby state lands close to Glendive won preliminary approval today.

The commission that oversees the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks agreed with the agency that a piece of land owned by the state Department of Natural Resources and Conservation could work as a new home.

A new plan for the park called for the removal of the rifle range, saying shooters could disturb visitors who use the campground or other facilities.

Shooters wanted to make sure they got a replacement that was no less desirable.

Parks administrator Joe Maurier says the plan could be a win-win situation for everyone. About 54-thousand people visited Makoshika last year.
