"In proclaiming yet again his top priority of vigorous enforcement of gun laws, Ashcroft noted that the Brady law, requiring all federally licensed firearms dealers to conduct background checks before selling a gun, helps keep guns out of the hands of those prohibited, such as convicted felons.

"And he said his new program has two major objectives: to increase prosecutions of gun-law violators, and to improve the accuracy and efficiency of NICS."

"Saying that saving lives would be worth the cost of fighting litigation, city commissioners have agreed to adopt a law requiring trigger locks and lock boxes for guns in homes or businesses where there are children under 18."

But Mayor Eric Hersh said, "What are you going to do, hand grieving parents a citation for not having a gun lock?"

Gun Accidents Rare for Children

Newsday, 07/02/2001 Monday, Page A3, by Bobby Cuza, Staff Writer

"When a child dies after gaining access to a gun in the home, headlines inevitably follow. But the reality is that such accidents are relatively rare among young children.

In 1998, the most recent year for which statistics are available, there were just ... 121 accidental gun deaths among children 14 or younger nationwide, according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. [emphasis ours]

By comparison, there were 317 gun deaths among young children nationwide that were judged homicides, according to the Centers for Disease Control."

KABA NOTE: Then WHERE exactly do they get their horrible-sounding "10 children per day" garbage statistic from?

"More county residents will be packing guns, but crime rates should go down as a result of the state's new concealed weapons law, state legislators said this morning."

"People that are going to carry out a crime aren't going to take the time to get a concealed weapon permit," state Rep. Randy Richardville (R-Monroe), said this morning. "The numbers we've seen has led us to believe that this is the best way to protect our children."

We like Rep. Richardville. He has common sense.

KABA NOTE: Monroe, Michigan's acting police chief, John Michrina, is one of us, and we appreciate his authenticity greatly. "Let's face it, the people you're most worried about won't be eligible to carry a gun anyway," he said. And those who think for themselves know he's right.

"The National Conference of Lieutenant Governors has endorsed a plan to distribute 3 million gun locks nationwide."

"At least 100,000 free gun locks will be distributed across Kentucky in September as part of the program."

"The conference, which has been meeting here since Wednesday, adopted a resolution Saturday to partner with the National Shooting Sports Foundation to distribute the locks..."

Makes perfect sense... for the criminals.

"Shawn Dulohery is an Army sergeant who spends most of his day firing a gun."

"But not the kind of weapon you might think."

"He leaves the machine guns, assault rifles and heavy artillery to others. When he pulls the trigger, it's on a sporting over-and-under shotgun. And he's aiming at fast-flying clay targets, not simulations of the enemy."

"Thanks to his stint in the Army, he is a world champion in international skeet shooting..."

Nice seeing another pro-shooting news outlet.

Former sheriff Mike Cook proposes an ordinance that he says would not be enforced but might well deter crime. "It's not going to change things that much," Cook said of the law. "But it will tell the world, 'Don't mess with us.'"

"In addition to California, approximately 15 states have laws allowing cities and counties latitude in enacting gun regulations, including Colorado, Illinois and Ohio, states many experts, including Becker, see as pivotal venues ripe for assistance such as that offered by Firearms Law Center."

~~This would create a patchwork of gun laws that would be virtually impossible to keep track of.

KABA NOTE: the article says, "The interactive site,, offers ... direct links to anti-violence groups in each state, and links to other groups with expertise in crafting gun legislation."

"If [his] home were just a mile or two north of Northern Parkway..."

"He might never have been charged with firing a shotgun in the air to stop the two thugs who approached him with lug wrenches. He wouldn't have been charged with "openly wear[ing] and carry[ing]" that shotgun, or with assaulting the low-life Griffin saw stripping a neighbor's car. Police may never have seized his handguns, a .32-caliber Colt revolver and a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver."

GUN CONTROL Myth of a 'Well-Regulated Militia'?

"On this Fourth of July, the president ought to review his early American history. If he does, he'll find that the Declaration of Independence asserted a right to life, not an omnipresent threat of death provided by a culture of guns. It asserted a right to liberty, not a tyranny of danger wrought by the ease with which dangerous weapons can be acquired. And it asserted a right to pursue happiness that certainly means something more than whatever joy comes from a smoking gun." --Email Mark Simon, Chronicle "Columnist"

KABA NOTE: Looks like *someone* forgot to back-up his assertions with FACTS, Mr. Simon.

The maintenance of the right to bear arms is a most essential one to every free people and should not be whittled down by technical constructions. [State vs. Kerner, 181 N.C. 574, 107 S.E. 222, at 224 (1921)]
