"What do you get when you put a current and former board member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in the same room with two of the most vehemently anti-gun members of the House and Senate? On Thursday, the answer to that question was: agreement." [emphasis added]

"Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho), a current NRA board member, joined former NRA board member Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) and anti-gun colleagues Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the author of the Brady gun control law, and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), who was elected to Congress on a gun control agenda after the murder of her husband and wounding of her son, to reintroduce a nearly identical version of the Our Lady of Peace Act (H.R. 4757)." ...

"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence United with the Million Mom March commended a bipartisan effort to pass legislation to strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). The effort was announced today by House members and Senators from both political parties. [NRA Director Sen. Larry Craig was on stage smiling, next to Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy.] ...

"Michael Barnes, President of Brady Campaign [said] 'This bill will help ensure the proper records are entered at the state level, and thus has the potential to save lives. We commend the leaders from both chambers and both parties who say they’ll fight to pass this legislation.' "

"The legislation was to be introduced by Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY) and [NRA Director] Larry Craig (R-ID), and Representatives [Former NRA Director]John Dingell (D-MI) and Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY)." ...

KABA NOTE:

Many people in the gun rights community wonder what has possessed the NRA management that makes them proudly help dedicated gun prohibitionists "strengthen background checks" on firearm purchases. Would NRA support background checks for the purchase of Bibles? Or for the right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure without probable cause? Should we also agree to and then strengthen background checks to be able to speak freely or publish editorials -- or background checks before we are allowed to peaceably assemble? After all, a First Amendment background check is no more invasive than a Second Amendment background check.
 

Bipartisan Agreement Is Reached On Gun Bill

"In an unlikely alliance of politicians often at odds on gun issues, leading Republicans
and Democrats in Congress announced a deal today on legislation that would provide
more than $1.1 billion to help prevent felons, illegal immigrants and others from buying guns."

-------
KABA NOTE:

If you have wondered why Tommy Daschle is all of a sudden loudly touting the NRA's pet legislation that would protect gun manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits, you might want to consider this so-called "bipartisan agreement" as a clue into his motivations and then ask your NRA some serious questions.

"FBI agents arrested the police chief of Seat Pleasant in Prince George's County yesterday on federal charges of crossing interstate lines to pick up a juvenile boy for illegal sexual activities that allegedly included taking explicit nude photos with a digital camera."

"Ronald Cyril Forrest, 39, was arrested after a woman 'who knows Forrest well' handed over to Special Agent Matthew J. Vilcek a photo album from the police chief's home in Clinton that the woman said contained pictures of young boys Forrest had mentored through a junior police program, according to a criminal complaint filed by the FBI in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt."

"Among the photos she handed over Sept. 17 were pornographic images of a teen-age boy from Washington, the FBI said."

VA: Charges Certified in Law School Shooting

"Odighizuwa, 45, is accused of killing Appalachian School of Law Dean Anthony Sutin, professor Thomas Blackwell and student Angela Dales and injuring three other students in a shooting spree in this tiny mountain community in Virginia's Southwestern coal fields."

"Friday, Buchanan County General District Judge Fred Combs certified charges of capital murder, attempted capital murder and illegal firearm use to the grand jury, which meets Oct. 13."

-------
This AP article fails to mention that Odighizuwa was stopped by two fellow law students, who happened to be off-duty LEO's. However, the damage could have been even less had they not been prevented from carrying concealed on campus by the PC BS school policy. The two officers had to run to the parking lot to retrieve their firearms before confronting the shooter.

The AP, like the vast majority of the news sources in this country, de-emphasizes the fact that the use of firearms saves lives.

"But I would paraphrase the anti-gun groups' mantra, 'If it would save one life, it is worth it,' and say, 'If one Maryland citizen defends his or her life with a legally carried handgun, it would be worth passing such a law in our state.' "

"And the truth is that it would save many lives because a concealed-carry law would prompt a significant decrease in the statewide crime rate."

"The only statement I totally agree with in Mr. Chapman's column is: 'The advantage of these laws is that they give individuals the means to protect themselves from violence.' "

"Why not give that advantage to law-abiding Marylanders?"

"Jupiter flag flier George Andres won a reprieve Thursday when a judge put the Oct. 9th foreclosure sale of his house on hold so that Andres can ask an appeals court whether he should lose his home."

"In one of the least acrimonious hearings in the four-year legal battle, Chief Circuit Judge Edward Fine put his own Sept. 10th order allowing for the foreclosure on hold, saying Andres' right to go to a higher court would be 'hollow' if the home were sold out from under him while that appeal was pending."

"The reprieve was expected, and Andres said he was relieved."

"The Law Enforcement Alliance of America is blasting California Gov. Gray Davis for signing a gun control bill that effectively bans the sale of many new handguns commonly used by law enforcement officers and citizens for self-defense."

"The bill Davis signed this week requires all semiautomatic handguns sold in California to be equipped with magazine disconnects and chamber indicators by 2007."

"Gun control advocates call them 'safety' devices, but gun owners say just the opposite."

"In fact, the bill Davis signed exempts law enforcement from the requirements, but the mechanical devices would be required on guns that officers purchase for their own private use."

"The council measure stopped short of directing police not to cooperate with federal law enforcement."

"Dozens of cities and counties nationwide have passed similar measures."

"With a barricaded gunman, you make the area safe, get people out of the way and start to negotiate. In an active shooter situation, time is not on your side. You have to act now, and you can't even wait for SWAT to arrive."
 

Should there be stricter gun control?

"Stricter gun control is like Nancy Reagan's 'just say no' campaign. Those who were never inclined to indulge are validated, those who already abuse continue to abuse. Do you really think stricter gun control is going to decrease homicides? The only people who won't be able to get guns will be law-abiding citizens who have no knowledge of underground networks. Those aren't the people committing crimes." ...

"It's still possible for someone to sneak a blade onto a commercial plane, the head of the Transportation Security Administration acknowledged Friday."

"But the problem isn't related to airport screeners. It's the technology that's lacking, said James Loy, who nonetheless has trimmed the agency's research budget."

"Government officials believe the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers used boxcutters to commandeer the four jets that crashed that day."

So let's get this straight. The U.S. spent billions of dollars to ensure that guns, tweezers and Medals of Honor do not make it onto the airplane. And after two years and billions of dollars, box cutters can STILL slip through security!

"The PATRIOT Act’s baleful abrogation of our right to due process under the law cannot be overstated. As defined in legal jargon, our constitutional right to due process endows every person with appropriate safeguards to protect against arbitrary or unreasonable treatment under the law. It is noteworthy to all, including the Department of Justice, that the framers used the term ‘person’ instead of ‘citizen’ in reference to due process. ... In essence, these provisions institute ideological censorship, authorize deportation for lawful group activities, and allow the Attorney General to detain foreigners with a piece of paper."

After listening to more than an hour of testimony this week, the City Council voted to oppose some parts of the act.

The Patriot Act -- passed after the 9-11 terror attacks -- expands the government's ability to collect information.

Some San Ramon residents are fighting to have the act repealed.

They say strong emotions and security fears may have led to the hasty approval of a constitutionally flawed law.

"Increased litigation among corporations and new regulatory requirements are taxing IT departments, which are being asked for information without having been involved in the business process that produced it, lawyers and analysts say."

"Still, many banks and securities firms are taking a go-slow approach when it comes to buying technology to address requirements of the USA Patriot Act, which requires financial companies to know the identities of their new customers as of this coming Wednesday. By contrast, firms seem to be more focused on the Sarbanes-Oxley Act's corporate accounting requirements, which are still a year away and, for the most part, don't even apply to them."
