Ohio: Aggressive dummo gets his deserts: "The man pounded on the front door of the home on Kimberly Circle, terrifying the couple inside. Then he smashed the front window, climbed inside and went to the living room where he met the male homeowner, who was holding a gun. '(The homeowner) told him to stay back, but he didn't listen,' Lt. John Huber said. The 62-year-old man then shot the intruder several times."

Myths about gun control: "Guns are dangerous. But myths are dangerous, too. Myths about guns are very dangerous, because they lead to bad laws. And bad laws kill people. 'Don't tell me this bill will not make a difference,' said President Clinton, who signed the Brady Bill into law. Sorry. Even the federal government can't say it has made a difference. The Centers for Disease Control did an extensive review of various types of gun control: waiting periods, registration and licensing, and bans on certain firearms. It found that the idea that gun control laws have reduced violent crime is simply a myth."

Protect lawful commerce in arms: "When a pro-gun bill is introduced in the House or Senate, you would not expect it to contain anti-gun clauses. Right? And yet, that is exactly what appears to be happening with S.397, one of two Lawful Commerce in Arms proposals. The original intent of S. 397 and H.R. 800 is to acknowledge that the Second Amendment is an individual right that shall not be infringed and to protect lawful firearm manufacturers, dealers, and importers from lawsuits resulting in the misuse of their product. Misuse of a firearm primarily includes pointing a loaded firearm at a person and pulling the trigger while not in a self defense situation. Most people would call that murder. But the anti-gun crowd has never sought to hold criminals accountable for their actions; they prefer to blame the inanimate firearm and its manufacturers."
