"In response to William C Roemer's Soapbox of Aug. 2: Roemer states and would have you believe that we, as United States citizens, have no right to keep and bear arms."

"I am retired military; I was sworn to support and defend the U.S. Constitution. I have a different opinion."

"The text of the Second Amendment is: 'A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.'"

"As stated by Roemer, the amendment consists of a sentence of 27 words. And it cannot be interpreted in pieces, but only as a whole." ...

"Former state representative Tim Walberg has a long and consistent record of supporting gun rights without wavering."

"Gun Owners of America's Political Victory Fund was the only national pro-gun organization to support Walberg." ...

"After deliberating for slightly more than four hours on Thursday, a jury found Terry Allen Hensley not guilty of murder. He had been charged with first-degree murder for the shooting death of his brother ..."

"The panel also acquitted him on the charge of use of a firearm in the commission of a murder. However, it did convict him on a lesser charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. ..." ...

"After the decision had been announced in court, and speaking on condition of anonymity, the jury foreman said the panel 'did not feel that Terry Allen Hensley deliberately set out to kill his brother.' Instead, he said the group concluded that Terry Allen Hensley shot Charles Wayne Hensley in self-defense." ...

"Four people, including a 17-year-old from Arizona, were shot within about a mile of each other in Southeast Washington Thursday night, and police were trying to determine whether the shootings were linked."

"As police investigated each of the first three shootings, gunshots could be heard from the next crime scene, officials said. The gunfire began about 9 p.m. when a gold-colored car approached and shots were fired into a crowd at 29th and S streets SE, police said. One woman suffered a leg wound." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Yes the crimes are linked: the common thread is that the victims were all disarmed, allowing the thugs to shoot in peace.

"The scope of the campaign for Arkansas attorney general is taking aim on the 'right of self protection' and the Second Amendment to bear arms, said the Republican candidate, Gunner DeLay."

"'One of the key issues in this race is going to be the right to bear arms. It is one of the most precious rights we have. I have been steadfast in my support of the Second Amendment, having co-sponsored the concealed weapon bill, voting in favor of the ban on municipal lawsuits against gun manufacturers and voting against mandatory trigger locks. I am an NRA member and have been endorsed by the Gun Owners of America,' DeLay said in a news conference Thursday morning in the Miller County Courthouse in Texarkana, Ark." ...

... "Since his election to the House 10 years ago at age 26, Ford has cast high-profile conservative votes, though he's more liberal than other Tennessee Democrats."

"He is spending the August congressional recess touring rural areas, trying to counter GOP contentions that its candidate ... is more in tune with Tennessee than Ford, a graduate of a tony Washington prep school and the University of Pennsylvania."

"Addressing a racially mixed rally crowd of 125, Ford took his perceived weaknesses head on."

"... 'Well, two of them are true. I'm from Memphis, and I'm black.'"

"But he said he opposes gay marriage, is 'a practicing Christian' and backs the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms." ...

"The 18 suing officers, including women, African Americans and Latinos, are referred to in the suit as 'non-Asian' or 'perceived non-Asian.'"

"They say Fong and the city acted against them while ignoring four Asian officers -- including one who appears as an Asian gang member on one of the videos -- who were neither suspended nor transferred to desk duty." ...

"The gun amnesty program being conducted in Yonkers may be largely symbolic, but it's worth a shot if it takes in one gun that could have been used in a crime. The timing is certainly propitious."

"Gunplay was rampant in the city over last weekend, mostly in the southwest section. In separate incidents, one man was shot in a shoulder, another in the hand and a third cut by bullet-shattered glass. Elsewhere, a restaurant manager was robbed at gunpoint, as was a man in an apartment house lobby. Shots also were reported fired during an argument at a bar and, separately, in a park, where police took a .380-caliber handgun from two 14-year-old boys and an air gun from a 16-year-old girl. Getting the picture?" ...

"Recently, the National Wildlife federation published results of a poll it said indicated hunters and anglers ... are as concerned about global warming as anyone else. Maybe more so."

"Whether that finding was the federation's primary intent in publishing the poll results, or whether its main point was somewhat more complicated ... is open to interpretation."

"It's no secret, after all, that members of most environmental groups ... often support Democrats, while members of hunter and wildlife groups usually support Republicans. This last is due in part to Republicans' typically laissez-faire attitude about guns, and Democrats' greater penchant for gun control." ...

"The half-brother of a slain Toronto gang member, who refused to testify against his sibling's accused killer, was sentenced yesterday in Calgary to six years in prison on weapons offences."

"Justice Scott Brooker -- in jailing Richard Basil Baker -- said a message had to be sent out handgun use would not be tolerated in Calgary."

"'The carrying of handguns and their use is becoming increasingly common in this community,' said Brooker."

"'It leads to escalating violence.'"

"The Queen's Bench judge said even though Baker didn't draw his prohibited .357-calibre weapon, just carrying it presented 'the very real risk of using it.'" ...

"People who carry concealed weapons need not practice to be crack shots at targets 50 yards or even 50 feet away, some gun safety instructors say."

"But those people need to be deadly accurate at 5 to 15 feet _ the range at which they could be in danger from someone else."

"The gun safety instructors and others testified Wednesday during a hearing on proposed rules for the state's new concealed-carry law."

"Most self-defense shootings would be at close range, said instructor Alan Hieronymus." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion. —THOMAS JEFFERSON
