"Two years ago today, New Orleans and the surrounding area was pounded by Hurricane Katrina, and in the following days, police and National Guard units, acting under orders that violated both the federal and Louisiana state constitutions, illegally seized without warrant or probable cause, hundreds of privately-owned firearms."

"After the [SAF] successfully halted the gun seizures in a federal lawsuit, the city undertook a campaign of stonewalling and stalling in an effort to retain those wrongly-confiscated firearms. That effort continues today, and it is time for the Ray Nagin administration to end this demagoguery and return those guns ... SAF was joined in the landmark lawsuit by the National Rifle Association." ...

"Not long ago, I brought my gun to Realco Guns in District Heights for cleaning. It is a vintage, J.C. Higgins .22-caliber rifle that my dad purchased from Sears around 1964. We belonged to a father-and-son club in my home town, Shreveport, La., and this was the gun we used whenever the group went out to shoot at tin cans."

"'Hip! Hip! Hooray! We've got the guns, and we intend to keep them,' gun rights advocate John M. Snyder noted here today after reviewing a news report on the Small Arms Survey 2007 by the Geneva based Graduate Institute of International Studies."

"According to the survey, for every 100 citizens in the United States, there are 90 firearms. This makes the American society the most heavily armed in the world. American citizens possess 270 million of the 875 million firearms known to those conducting the survey. People in the United States purchase more than half – 4.5 million - of the eight million new guns manufactured each year." ...

"On Tuesday, Jesse Jackson, the Brady bunch -- not the TV folk but the anti-gun lobby -- and other liberal activists rallied against 'the national scourge of illegal guns' in cities around the nation."

"The networks ignored the event, probably because turnout was so embarrassingly low. The Chicago Tribune reported that 'about 200' piled out of three buses in Lake Barrington, Illinois, the Chicago-area protest keynoted by Jackson himself. The Philadelphia Inquirer said 'about 200' showed up in Philly. The Dallas Morning News reported about 60 demonstrators in South Dallas, and AP said 'about 100' attended the Washington, D.C. event held in nearby District Heights, Maryland." ...

"It would be great to have bragging rights that America had the lowest percentage of poor people in the world, or the least number of infants who die, but, alas, our latest claim to fame relates to a record-setting level of gun ownership."

"According to the Small Arms Survey 2007 ... the U.S. can boast being the most heavily armed nation in the world."

"Of course, this hasn’t made us any safer, because the United States is also the leader among industrialized nations in the number of our young people killed by gunfire. More guns, more deaths." ...

We are suddenly in the midst of a small small-arms arms race. In one corner is the new, pink, purse-size Taser C2 ...

"The number of New Yorkers who may carry pistols legally dropped this year, while permits issued to allow people to keep pistols in their home increased, according to police statistics."

"Mayor Bloomberg has sought to cut the number ofconcealed weapons on city streets, and since he has been in office it has dropped dramatically. This year, 2,516 New Yorkers received a permit to carry a concealed pistol. The city issued 2,555 such permits in 2006, almost 50% fewer than the 4,789 that were given out in 2004."

"The head spokesman for the police department, Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne, said the reduction in the number of permits issued is partly due to sharp increases in the fees holders must pay to renew their permits. ..." ...

"Some gun-rights activists think they know the solution to the issue of campus security, one that has come front and center since the shootings at Virginia Tech."

"But it is a frightening, potentially disastrous solution. Allowing students and staff to be armed — or even, as some suggest, encouraging them to be armed — runs the risk of bringing violence to more situations and more campuses."

"If there was ever a toxic mix, it's this: alcohol, immaturity, stress, hormones, drugs, and all sorts of mental health issues (the usual brew of college campuses), combined with deadly firepower."

"But that's precisely the concoction that some activists are urging and will be pressuring the General Assembly to make way for." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
