Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"A state police plan to halt firearms sales in Pennsylvania from Sept. 2 through Sept. 6, ostensibly to update that agency's background check system, is a civil rights outrage, the Second Amendment Foundation said today."

"'The Pennsylvania State Police have just provided a strategy to any state agency, and the FBI, for arbitrarily suspending the constitutional right to keep and bear arms,' said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb. 'No government agency should have that authority, and we are hopeful that state lawmakers will successfully derail this plan until the state police find some other way to update their system without interrupting firearms sales.'" ...

"I'm getting so tired of the anti-gun, anti-family organizations running out of both steam and money, and then blaming it on the Gun Lobby.

"The answer was 41%. ..." ...

Hmmm....looks like Principal Karen Martin has deactivated her email.

I wonder how she'd react if people were to send (non-threatening) pictures of guns to the school via mail? Say, that's a pretty ferocious looking panther in their school logo--fangs bared and all... I guess the message is, animals with weapons are good, people with weapons are bad.

I don't know what the big deal about children drawing guns is. I used to do it all the time.

"The hard truth of the matter is that parks, like almost every other public venue nowadays, have become more dangerous."

"As far as I know, law-abiding citizens, such as myself, who carry concealed weapons are the last group of people that government should be concerned about."

"To legally qualify to carry a concealed weapon, one must first be a law-abiding citizen without a criminal felony record."

"... I have personally never had a problem with law enforcement or park authorities within my county about carrying weapons, but other people who I know have run into problems ..."

"The authorities should be more concerned about the predators ... who have attacked and killed innocent people in parks." ...

Mitt Romney’s millions spent and Fred Thompson’s millions in free publicity (how can this be legal under the McCain/Feingold/Thompson campaign finance reform act?) haven’t propelled them to within shouting distance of Rudy Giuliani in national polls, so they’ve decided it’s time to hit the attack button." ...

"Residents of Missouri soon will no longer need a sheriff’s permit to buy a concealable gun, although a permit still will be required to carry one."

"Missouri lawmakers changed the gun law earlier this year with little of the controversy that often goes with gun legislation. The change will be effective Tuesday."

"'It's something we've advocated for some time,' said Kevin Jamison, a Gladstone lawyer who is president of the Missouri Sport Shooting Association ... 'This makes it easier for people to buy firearms. They don't have to get permission first.'"

"The gun-permit law for purchases dates to 1921, Jamison said. The sheriff has up to seven days to review a permit application and conduct a criminal background check." ...

"Rendell, at a noon press conference, said he has asked an ad hoc committee of legislative leaders and sportmen's groups to meet next week to see if there is 'a better time' to proceed with the planned upgrade to the state's criminal history database."

"The governor's move comes after a slowly building firestorm over plans to complete the upgrade from Sept. 2 through 6. The state's mandatory instant background check system for prospective gun buyers would be shut down through that period." ...

"Conspiracy, idiocy or just plain political opportunity?"

"When it comes to the issue of guns in Pennsylvania, the answer depends on geography - or so suggests the latest flap over Gov. Rendell's decision to shut down the state's instant background check system for gun purchases between Sept. 2 and 6."

"The reason: much-needed computer upgrades."

"The fallout: people won't be able to buy guns for four days - four days that coincide with the start of hunting season, when doves and early Canada geese become fair game, hunting enthusiasts say."

"Anger around the Capitol is palpable. And at least one top Republican says it's an effort by 'liberals from Philadelphia' to do back-door gun control." ...
