Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

On the day of the shooting [of a City Council Member in City Hall] he said he did not understand why anyone would carry a handgun because handguns kill people; though the city licenses people to carry guns, he did not understand why anyone would carry one. He was not consciously trying to triangulate liberal Democratic voters on an issue that appealed to them; he was making a statement in the heat of the moment.

Dallas is a step closer to passing one of the nation's strictest ordinances regulating the sale and possession of toy guns.

The Dallas City Council's public safety committee on Monday afternoon voted 7-1 to direct City Attorney Tom Perkins to craft an ordinance that would ban the sale and possession of toy guns unless painted in bright colors, such as hot pink or neon green, that also reflected light. New York City's anti-toy gun ordinance, regarded as one of the country's most stringent, should serve as Dallas' model, the committee told Mr. Perkins.

The City Council's Public Safety Committee gave its unanimous endorsement Monday to a proposed law that would require gun owners whose weapon is lost or stolen to report it to police within 48 hours.

The proposed law, which heads now to the City Council, is aimed at cracking down on "straw buyers," who purchase weapons for criminals, juveniles and others unable or unwilling to buy their own guns.
 

Crime will feed off lax U.S. gun laws

As gun lobbyists often point out, states with stringent gun-safety laws such as New York often have some of the highest firearm murder rates in the country. The implication is that stringent gun laws don't work. However, what the lobbyists never mention is that the firearms used to kill and maim people in states with stringent gun laws often flow from states with weaker laws.
 

15 States Expand Right to Shoot in Self-Defense
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"In the last year, 15 states have enacted laws that expand the right of self-defense, allowing crime victims to use deadly force in situations that might formerly have subjected them to prosecution for murder."

"Supporters call them 'stand your ground' laws. Opponents call them 'shoot first' laws."

"Thanks to this sort of law, a prostitute in Port Richey, Fla., who killed her 72-year-old client with his own gun rather than flee was not charged last month. Similarly, the police in Clearwater, Fla., did not arrest [a retired Virginia police officer] who shot a neighbor in early June after a shouting match over putting out garbage, though the authorities say they are still reviewing the evidence." ...

The President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence announced today that the organization was endorsing Je Donna Dinges in the Democratic primary to serve Michigan's First District in the Michigan House of Representatives. The organization rarely endorses primary candidates.

"We want the voters in Michigan's First House District to know that we believe Ms. Dinges is the best candidate to restore sanity on the gun issue in Lansing."

“An analysis of crime figures released Sunday by the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics indicates that law-abiding Americans should continue to enjoy legal access to the possession and use of firearms,” gun law expert John M. Snyder said here this morning. “What these numbers show, for the umpteenth time,” observed Snyder, “is that there is a violent criminal class in our country. Law-abiding people have to be able to protect themselves and their families and their property from these thugs. In order to be able to do this, they need access to the tools with which to do it. There is no better self-defense instrument than a gun, in particular a handgun.
