"Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle says he will back legislation to protect gun makers from lawsuits arising from criminal use of the weapons, as long as it is changed to ensure legitimate claims can go forward."

"A group of Democrats -- not including Daschle -- had pledged to filibuster the bill. Daschle said his support depends upon an amendment to protect future claims arising from defective products or situations where people buy guns for felons or others who are barred from doing so themselves."

"Congress is ready to improve the instant background check system for gun buyers by offering states financial incentives to provide more records and threatening to withhold federal dollars for those failing to comply, lawmakers said Thursday."

"Members of Congress said that the biggest problem with the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System is that many state records are not in the federal government's system." ...

"New legislation would give states financial incentives to put their records into the system."

In the old days we'd call this "bribery" and "extortion." Now they call it "financial incentives." Our own tax dollars being used to destroy our rights.

"Senator Daschle becomes the 55th senator to cosponsor the legislation. The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act passed the House in April by an overwhelming and bipartisan margin (285-to-140)." ...

"In a statement released today announcing his support, Daschle said, 'It is wrong -- and it is a misuse of the civil justice system -- to try to punish honest, law-abiding people for illegal acts committed by others without their knowledge or involvement. That's not the way we do things in America. We don't hold innocent people responsible for acts they are not involved in and over which they have no control.' "

"The Violence Policy Center (VPC) today released 'When Men Murder Women: An Analysis of 2001 Homicide Data.' This annual report, which details national and state-by-state information on female homicides involving one female murder victim and one male offender, illustrates the unique role firearms play in female homicide. ...In 2001, the most recent data available from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's unpublished Supplementary Homicide Report, firearms were the most common weapon used by males to murder females (846 of 1,720 or 49 percent). Of these, 76 percent (642 of 846) were committed with handguns." ...

"First of all, Mr. Silvern, because of all our country’s frivolous lawsuits, you, as a financial adviser, should surely know that insurance premiums are so high now that many folks cannot afford to start a new business. Just a month ago a Marseilles family doctor wrote a column in The Daily Times stating she could no longer afford the malpractice insurance required because of our sue-happy society. As a result, she can no longer provide some of the care that she has been trained for."

"If the firearm industry were allowed to be sued in such a manner, all industries would be in danger of such legal actions, resulting in many moving out of the United States which — by the way — is already happening."

"The Internal Revenue Service is exploring ways to share names, addresses, birth dates, employee records, and other taxpayer information with law-enforcement agencies, particularly the Immigration and Naturalization Service, according to legislative aides and senior tax attorneys."

"Aides said any such move, though taken in the name of national security, could violate the spirit if not the letter of US nondisclosure laws. These privacy rules were first established in the mid-1970s as part of an overhaul of the tax code after the Nixon White House used IRS records to intimidate its enemies."
 

Our Over-budget Government

"...Officials routinely low-ball costs of proposals to win initial spending approval. When programs go over budget and do not work as promised, politicians place the blame on blunders by the bureaucracy or private contractors. In reality, cost overruns and program failure are not isolated problems but are systematic and widespread across the federal government." ...

"... 'Project promoters routinely ignore, hide or otherwise leave out important project costs and risks in order to make total costs appear low.' Politicians use 'salami tactics' whereby costs are only revealed to taxpayers one slice at a time in the hope that the project is too far along when true costs are revealed to turn back."

Six policemen, including a sub-inspector, were sent to jail custody in Chittagong yesterday on charge of killing a road builder.

A team of the Special Branch of Police arrested the cops Wednesday night for their alleged involvement in the killing of Farid Uddin alias Forak Sawdagor and took them to a court yesterday.

The court sent Sub-Inspector Nesar Ahmad and constables Ismail Hossain, Mainuddin, Amanullah, Afser Uddin and Birendra Debnath to jail.

Forak was shot dead in a clash over construction at Tailerdwip on the Chittagong-Banshkhali Road under Anwara upazila in the district in July in the presence of the policemen.

The policemen allegedly took the side of Forak's rivals and a bullet fired with a police rifle felled him.
 

MS: Cameras Watching Students, Especially in Biloxi

"Fearful of violence, particularly in light of the nation's experience with schoolhouse shootings, educators across the country are rushing to install ceiling-mounted cameras in hallways, libraries and cafeterias. But no other district has gone as far as this Gulf Coast community, which, flush with casino revenue, has hung the cameras not only in corridors and other common areas but also in all of its 500 classrooms."

"That has made virtually everything that happens at any of Biloxi's 11 public schools subject to instant replay, though so far, principals report, they have used such replays to confront only humdrum problems like clarifying the disappearance of a child's ice cream money or ensuring that students do not sleep in class."

"Southern Methodist University is drawing fire from conservative students for closing down a student bake sale intended to protest affirmative action."

"The Young Conservatives of Texas sponsored the sale, which charged prices based on the customer's race or gender. White males paid $1 for a cookie, white woman 75 cents, Hispanics 50 cents, and blacks a quarter."

"SMU officials closed the sale Tuesday after 45 minutes because they were concerned about shouting and students crowding the table. A black student also filed a discrimination complaint saying the sale was offensive."

"Despite a dramatic drop in firearm-related murders in the last decade, nearly 60 percent of all homicides in 2001 (the latest year in which figures are available) were firearm-related. Some 40 percent of American homes contain at least one gun. And 14 children die of gun-inflicted wounds each day; four of those 14 used a gun to commit suicide. The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms traced guns used in crimes to original purchases in nearly all 48 contiguous states." ...

"At the federal level, we need Congress to at least renew the 1994 ban on the production of semiautomatic assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola), who lost her husband in the Long Island Rail Road slaughter a few years back, proposes H.R. 2038 extend this law, which is set to expire Sept. 13."

"Round 2 in the battle between Utah lawmakers and the University of Utah over the school's gun ban may be fought in the court of public opinion rather than a court of law."

"Last month, just hours after 3rd District Judge Robert Hilder upheld the U.'s firearms ban, Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff recommended appealing the ruling to the Utah Supreme Court."

"The appeal is still on track and is expected to be filed sometime next month. But Shurtleff says he will drop it if legislative leaders make good on their promise to pass a bill this winter countering the U.'s policy of the past 27 years that prohibits employees and students from bringing weapons on campus."

"The Sarasota Herald-Tribune will begin rejecting classified ads for firearms after police say a man used a gun he bought through one of the ads to kill his estranged wife."

"Beginning Oct. 1, the paper will accept classified advertisements for only collectible antique firearms made before 1898. The ads must be published in the 'Antiques' or 'Collectibles' categories. The paper's 'Guns & Rifles' category will be eliminated."

"Retailers can still advertise firearms in display ads and inserts but they must include their dealer's license number."

CA: LEAA: Gov. Davis Seals His Fate by Signing Massive CA Handgun Ban; Phony 'Safety' Measure Bans Nearly All Models of Handguns Used in Law Enforcement, Self-Defense
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"The bill masqueraded as a so-called safety measure, by requiring all handguns sold in California to be equipped with magazine disconnects and chamber indicators. Organizations seeking to promote gun control and ban handguns deem these 'safety' devices, while firearm safety experts contend otherwise. The law enforcement community expressly rejects the 'magazine disconnect' feature, as it seeks to disable the firearm during a magazine change, a potentially life-threatening result for an officer in a shoot-out." ...

"LEAA urges Gov. Davis' soon to be decided replacement to reconsider this ill-advised and misleadingly promoted law."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mills
