Bush's talk on terrorism draws cheers

"I've come by because, first, I love to hunt and fish... Secondly, because I heard you're expanding the job base here... We stand for the Second Amendment, which gives every American the individual right to bear arms. I've got a record on that issue. It stands in stark contrast to my opponent."

-------
Yes, you've got a record there, sir. You support the unconstitutional "assault" weapons ban. You claim to support all of the unconstitutional laws on the books and want to enforce them. You want to increase the minimum age for gun ownership to 21. And you have not lifted a finger to encourage the Supreme Court to hear a Second Amendment case. Quite a record.

"The other nine include former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, 51, a gun-control opponent and author ('From My Cold, Dead Fingers'); Bruce Friedrich, 34, a vegetarian and animal-rights advocate who has served prison time for his protest activities; Joyce Riley, 55, a former combat nurse whose big issue is veterans' rights; Park Gillespie, 38, a conservative schoolteacher, small-business owner and father of four; and Malia Lazu, 27, a liberal, tri-racial political activist from Hawaii whose life's work, for now, is stimulating voter turnout in urban neighborhoods.

"The Supreme Court agreed Monday to settle whether long-standing federal rules for sentencing criminals violate the Constitution, a question that has thrown federal courthouses into disarray this summer."

"The high court said it will hear two cases suggested by the Bush administration. The Justice Department had rushed the appeals just weeks after the court ruled major portions of a state sentencing system unconstitutional." ...

"The Bush administration is defending the federal sentencing system, usually known as the sentencing guidelines. The guidelines give judges a range of possible punishments for a given crime, and make it difficult for judges to go outside those boundaries."

Nice and hypocritical. He made a fortune peddling violent movies, but now all of a sudden he's too pure to carry a weapon? Spare us!
 

Behind the Badge: Responsible gun owners should not be punished

"I look at the assault weapons ban kind of like the teacher you had in grade school who, after getting hit in the back of the head with a spit ball, made the entire class stay after school. Everyone was punished for the actions of one. While it's true that there have been some horrific, terrible crimes against people committed with these weapons in this country, do we punish everyone for the actions of a few?"
 

Gunning for the NRA

"It’s not the criminal’s fault, he killed because somebody sold him an 'assault rifle.' So goes the thinking expressed recently in an absurd editorial in the Wilmington, NC Star-News."

"A young women student at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington was shot 11 times by a deranged, convicted felon; a former boyfriend she rejected. Later, in western North Carolina her killer shot himself and died when his truck crashed in a mountain ravine. The gun, wrote the editor, 'allowed him to take two young lives.' "

"The gun allowed . . .? The gun didn’t permit anything. Guns are inanimate objects—cold steel, until someone chooses to heat them up. They can be used for good or evil. ..."

"Andrew Arulanandam, an NRA spokesman, confirmed that talks with federal security agents are being held. 'They've asked us to help inform our members about the proper procedures,' he said."

"But Arulanandam said education is also needed among airline agents. He cited several circumstances where gun owners were not allowed to travel with their firearms."

"Small arms are still the key ingredient when it comes down to close fighting including urban warfare. Why then do laws exist that restrict law enforcement officers and law abiding legally armed citizens, from carrying their firearms? These restrictive laws do not do anything to discourage individuals intent of committing acts of terror. They only make the odds of committing these acts of terror higher because; there is less resistance for them to overcome, or to cause harm to them before they can complete their act of terror. ..."
 

Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms Challenges New Haven, CT Police Chief, Jesse Jackson About Wal-Mart Gun Sales

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) today chided Wal-Mart for giving into pressure from city officials in New Haven, Conn., and agreeing to stop the sale of firearms, bowhunting equipment and paintball guns at its store, scheduled to open this month." ...

" 'It's widely known,' Waldron said, 'that gun rights are sacred in the South, where Wal-Mart is headquartered, so the store managers in New Haven are as wrong about their decision as Jackson is about Wal-Mart, and about the Second Amendment. Jackson needs to be reminded that the right to keep and bear arms is as much an individual civil right as voting or attending the church of your choice.' "

Send Kerry to Perry' to See Legitimate Use of Semi-Autos, Says SAF

Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry need only turn his attention to the National High Power Rifle championships being held this month at Camp Perry, Ohio to observe the legitimate use of semiautomatic rifles, a use that seems to elude him and other gun control proponents, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) said today.

" 'There's no better place than Camp Perry for Mr. Kerry to see hundreds, if not thousands, of registered shooters and spectators, participating in a registered competition with the kinds of legitimate firearms for which anti-gunners claim there is no legitimate use,' said SAF Founder Alan Gottlieb. 'Camp Perry is the World Series of shooting competitions, attracting dedicated marksmen from across the nation. After visiting Camp Perry, nobody could honestly claim there are no legitimate uses for the firearms that would be affected by legislation Mr. Kerry and so many of his colleagues support.' "

"Measuring the number of permits against the town's population, Coatesville has the second highest firearms permit rate of all Indiana cities and towns. The ranking is approximate because it is not known how many who gave Coatesville as their address live in or outside the town limits."

"Lying in a rural stretch of the state between Indianapolis and Bloomington, Martinsville has more than 20 times the population of Coatesville. But the two communities are linked by a heritage where learning to shoot is a rite of passage and gun ownership, a God-given right."

" 'That shows we live in a free country,' Jones says."

"Carson talks conservative, but he hires socialist. Case in point: Blaine Greteman, an OSU graduate and Rhodes Scholar."

"For the second time lately, criminals broke into a house while the occupants were sleeping, and shots were fired."

"The shots were not made by the house occupants, but by the crimers themselves."

"If you will remember, this writer informed Pravda.ru readers that the National Rifle Association and Mr. John Lott assured, and stated without reservation, that in America, 98% of all crimes like these would be eliminated if house owners had guns."

-------
Wow! Talk about lack of comprehension skills! Lott claimed that in 98 percent of self defense cases, merely brandishing a weapon is enough to stop the crime.

"...Although these searches were reportedly conducted with consent of the homeowners, taking someone's guns without telling him could be a serious legal breach, regardless of any concerns about catching an armed criminal.' "

" 'Police simply cannot get verbal consent to search, and then take property from a possible crime scene without a warrant, and without telling the owner,' he continued. 'Authorities in Oshkosh aren't helping matters any by sealing a search warrant obtained for one of the houses involved in the search, nor are police helping to allay concerns about the conduct of their neighborhood sweep by remaining silent.'

"The Brady law, passed in 1993, requires licensed gun dealers to conduct a background check on every buyer. However, a loophole in the law allows people who aren't licensed gun dealers to skip background checks on buyers."

"That means you can make a purchase person to person in Tennessee without a background check." ...

"While all licensed gun sellers, including those inside the gun show, are required to do background checks, the men outside weren't doing anything illegal since it was a person to person sale. It's also not illegal to sell guns outside of a gun show."
