"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) today praised the United States House of Representatives for its passage early this week of the proposed Disaster Personal Protection Act."

"'We commend the House, and especially the House leadership, for bringing this measure to the floor and passing it with an overwhelming 322 - 99 bipartisan vote,' said John M. Snyder, CCRKBA public affairs director."

"The bill, H.R. 5013, introduced by Rep. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, would prohibit any agency using federal disaster relief funds from seizing firearms from law-abiding citizens in their cars, homes and businesses. The legislation would not prevent confiscating guns from convicted felons ..." ...

"An Opinion article by Mike Freeman on Monday was quite interesting. On the one hand, he makes a very convincing argument in favor of small arms possession by the "people" of this country. On the other, he bashes the motivations of those persons who direct the agenda of the National Rifle Association."

"As a member of the NRA for an extended period and as one who has read all he could find on the subject, I'm thoroughly convinced the NRA and the officers thereof are completely honest in their crusade to protect the Second Amendment. Contrary to the news available from the mass media, i.e., TV, newspapers, magazines, etc., the NRA will give you both the good and the bad sides of the issue. ..." ...

... "'These bills comprise a groundbreaking legislative package that will help our City combat gun violence. They will make enforcement of our gun laws more effective, strengthen our efforts to prevent illegal gun sales, and help us to continue making the safest big city in America even safer.'"

"'Public safety is the foundation of our City's prosperity. Although we have driven crime to a 40-year low, we’re not letting up one bit. Far from it. These bills demonstrate how serious we are about continuing to do even more to prevent crime and improve public safety. Confronting head-on the scourge of illegal guns – which last year were used to kill more than 300 New Yorkers – is a central part of our strategy.'" ...

"Mayor Bloomberg took another step in his crusade against gun violence yesterday, signing four new measures into law, including one that sets up a registry for firearms offenders."

"'These four bills are an important part of the city's comprehensive three-prong approach to combating illegal guns: stronger enforcement, new legislation and innovative litigation,' Bloomberg said. 'It will now be harder and riskier to buy and sell illegal guns in our city, and that's great news for law-abiding citizens.'"

"The gun registry, which is similar to those for sex offenders, will require anyone convicted of criminal possession of a firearm in the second or third degree to register with the NYPD and report in every six months." ...

"Has there been cases where the wiki debate actually changed Ashdown's beliefs?"

"'Yes,' he admits. Two examples: guns and Iraq."

"'At first, I thought there was need for some kind of gun control.' But after reading differing viewpoints, Ashdown says he's now a defender of Second Amendment rights." ...

"According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, state Representative Joseph Uecker(R), a co-sponsor of HB347, is planning to introduce legislation to allow townships to regulate firearms according to a statement quoted in the paper. However, Rep. Uecker disputes he made such a statement." ...

"The issue stems from township residents in Miami Township complaining about hearing gunfire." ...

"Perhaps instead, the busybodies who are 'unnerved' by the sound of target practice should understand that big city Liberalism doesn't work and isn't supported in the small town lifestyle."

"Just because a few people are bothered by the sound of gunfire, doesn't mean every else should lose the right to safely target practice on their own property." ...

"Quick — think fast. What do you do when your life is in danger? If someone else is threatening your life, do you have the right to end theirs? You do now. On July 20, the Self-Defense Act was signed by Gov. Jennifer Granholm."

"... In other words, if you kill someone in the act of self defense, you are legally protected."

"For law-abiding citizens, this may seem like a sound piece of legislation. In actuality, however, the act has the potential to promote violence."

"Although the Self-Defense Act specifically attempts to protect the rights of people who are fighting back in self defense, it doesn't guarantee that people won't also attempt to use the law to protect themselves when resorting to violence when their lives aren't in danger." ...

"'Enough is enough,' said Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia, R-Cathedral City."

"'When you have so many questions brought up about an agency, we have a fiduciary responsibility to do something about it.'"

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A British woman has been ordered by police to take down a sign on her garden gate which read "Our dogs are fed on Jehovah's Witnesses."

Janet Grove, who owns a terrier puppy called Rabbit, insisted the sign was a gentle joke to discourage callers at her front door.

Her late husband put the sign up more than 30 years ago when members of the church called at their house on Christmas Day.

But police were forced to act after receiving a complaint.

"We were informed by a member of the public who found the sign to be distressing, offensive and inappropriate," a police spokesman said. "Officers attended the address and the sign was voluntarily taken down."

"At a time when frontline Mounties are being wounded and killed while on duty, two officers including one who came under fire himself Thursday said the force is 'outgunned' by the bad guys."

"'They've got the big guns and they're not afraid to use them,' said Const. Rip Mills. 'So you go to a gunfight with a pistol and the bad guy has a rifle. What do you do with a pistol? Duck and take cover?'"

"It is rare for Mounties to speak publicly, but with the rash of gun attacks against them, Ontario-based Mills and Const. Pete Merrifield broke rank in a public call for better firepower. They both said the national force is outmatched by criminals and that its frontline officers need more than one trip a year to the shooting range to hone their skills." ...

"Moments after a King County jury dealt her another setback, Michelle Jeffries vowed to continue her quest for justice in the wake of her son's death."

"In a 10-2 verdict reached Thursday, the jury tossed out Jeffries' wrongful death claims against the man who shot her son. Prosecutors had ruled out pressing criminal charges against the shooter, Angelo Quevedo, concluding he acted in self-defense during a Jan. 27, 2002, house party in West Seattle."

"Outraged, Jeffries then filed her lawsuit in Superior Court."

"Thursday's verdict, following nearly a week of testimony, was a small victory for Quevedo, 29, and his family, who have been struggling to prove his innocence and hopeful that the controversy finally will be put to rest." ...

"'The people causing the problems are not the people with permits,' says Tom Givens, owner of Rangemaster in East Memphis. 'The people doing all the crimes are criminals who don't own guns legally.'"

"Four Seasons originally opened in 1989 and was owned by the Fishlin family, long-time Woburn residents. Rather than give the store up when he became ill, they sold it to Carl Ingrao, a family friend.

"'Auckland Gun Dealer Greg Carvell should be applauded for his actions in defending himself ... yesterday,' says Peter Linton, Libertarianz Firearms Spokesman. 'All too often these days, ordinary citizens are portrayed as being the bad guy when they are simply acting in self defence.'"

"'Here is a clear case of a criminal entering private property and threatening lawful citizens with what appears to be deadly intent,' explained Linton. 'Fortunately, Mr. Carvell was able to defend himself with a level of force that he 'deemed appropriate, in the circumstances he believed them to be'. This is the universal right to self defence under the 1961 Crimes Act - the same Act which allows Police officers to use force.'" ...
