"So, the Assault Weapon Ban did nothing to stop crime in the United States, mostly because these weapons were rarely used in crimes in the first place. But oh hell, its expiration is wreaking havoc in Mexico! Therefore we should tailor our laws, our Constitution, our rights and freedoms to Mexico's inability to control its own criminal population, right?"

"Hmmmmm... Not so much."

"I took a call from Deeanne, an Illinois woman last night as a guest on The Rick Adams Show. You can listen to the show on MP3 on my website at www.GoodForTheCountry.com"

"1. Organize a Stand Your Ground Chapter in your state as part of a nationwide Stand Your Ground Movement."

"2. State American values with confidence on the knowledge that values previously characterized as right wing are actually mainstream American, and which need to be re-established." ...

"If you've been to my site, you know how passionate I am about this particular issue. We have between 80 and 90 gun deaths a day in this country, and many are simply unnecessary."

"Just as unions, pro-choice groups and other progressive organizations and movements were put on the defensive throughout much of the 90s and now the 2000s by right-wing groups with no conscience, so have those arguing for meaningful gun safety laws when confronted with men with an extra-Y chromosome lodged in their cerebral cortex."

"The NRA, with ... their willingness to do anything to win, with an almost gleeful expression as they lessen the security of the American people, are bar none one of the most evil of these groups in the country. ..." ...

"Timing is everything, right? If you were going to defend your life from a large, angry man shouting that he's contemplating beating you to death, while his two large, angry dogs snarl and snap at you, it would be politic to have done it after April 24, 2006."

"Harold Fish ran into the aforementioned brace of canines and the one angry man out in the woods north of Payson on May 11, 2004. After firing a warning shot into the ground near the dogs, which aroused the dog owner's ire and sent him charging toward Fish in a quite frightening and threatening manner (according to Fish), Fish shot him three times." ...

"In response to ... 'Concealed weapons are not a threat,' I have to disagree with the author, strongly."

"The idea of students carrying guns around campus is so ludicrous that I really don’t know how else to convey my shock that people think it’s a legitimate option. The author of the letter might consider himself someone who is always sane and stable enough to know when drawing a weapon is necessary and when it is a criminal offense, but simple fact is when you always have something with you, you’re going to be more inclined to use it. ... If someone has a gun with them, they will always be more inclined to use it than if they don’t have it, which means that gun related incidents on campus will increase ..." ...

"It was a good day Thursday for the National Rifle Association and Vice President Cheney, as Democratic-controlled spending panels defeated efforts to loosen restrictions on gun sales information ..." ...

"Democrats from urban areas where gun violence is prevalent failed to weaken a provision authored by Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Kan., included in the annual spending bill since 2003 that prevented sharing information on gun sales stockpiled by the [BATFE] outside of the federal law-enforcement community."

"Tiahrt and the NRA, along with some police organizations, argue the restrictions protect the privacy of law-abiding gun owners and the identities of police and others involved in investigations." ...

"A key Congressional committee dealt a major blow to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's campaign against illegal firearms yesterday, refusing to allow police departments broader access to data that tracks guns sales."

"The bill restricting release of the information, approved by the House Appropriations Committee, must still be passed by the full House and reconciled with a similar Senate measure. But since the Senate bill is considered even more beneficial to the gun industry, the Bloomberg administration appeared resigned to defeat."

"A statement from Mayor Bloomberg called the vote 'a profound disappointment.' ..." ...

"Therefore, consider this an open letter to the good folks of Iowa and New Hampshire: Don't be fooled by this political chameleon, this charlatan, this pretender to the throne." ...

"Today he claims to be a champion of the Second Amendment, a proud member of the National Rifle Association. Yet, he supported President Clinton's draconian 1994 gun ban, boasting to the Boston Herald: 'That's not going to make me the hero of the NRA. I don't line up with a lot of special interest groups.'"

"More recently, just five years ago, as governor he signed into law what is described by some as one of the toughest assault-weapons laws in the country." ...

"So we need to vote Republican, right?"

"Yeah, if you agree with Rudy Giuliani that we need federal licensing and testing to own a gun, and that semiautos should be banned ..." ...
