to Rally Against the United Nations
TRT United Nations Protest
Rally Saturday July 14th 12 noon to 4 pm (or until we have had enough
fun) Dag Hammarskjold Plaza E 47 St., 1 To 2 Aves.
As the United Nations gather to attempt to enact their
vision for an unarmed and enslaved world we will gather as Americans have
always gathered to face a threat to her safety. For many years the
U. N. has been working to disassemble the soul of every free nation, Sovereignty.
Now they assemble to remove the one thing, which we, as Americans possess,
which guarantees our Liberty, our Second Amendment - our civil rights.
Live musical entertainment will be graciously provided by Pokerface
Speakers as of this moment will include and are in NO particular order!

some money and more importantly some time helping on a local level.
A few hours spent helping with mailing or putting up signs will show that
you as a gun owner are willing to do your part and don't think that only
one party has a monopoly on issues important to gun owners or that some
politicians that really do not support us will not try to use some issues
to try to gain our support.

improves image with more Democrats
From the Times Union, By ELIZABETH BENJAMIN, Capitol bureau First published:
Wednesday, June 27, 2001
Albany-- Stance on environment, gun control puts him more in favor
with opposition, poll shows
Republican Gov. George Pataki's position on environmental
issues and his push for stricter gun control laws has improved his
image with many Democratic New York voters, according to a poll released
The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute also
found Pataki had slightly increased his lead over both his potential Democratic
opponents in the gubernatorial election next year, should he decide to
''All the numbers come up strong for Pataki,'' said
Maurice Carroll, director of the polling institute, even though the poll
also found that Pataki's approval rating slipped a bit from 61 percent
in March to 56 percent.
Pataki spokesman Michael McKeon would not comment
directly on the poll, except to say that "there is broad support for the
governor's issues and policies.'' Pataki has hinted broadly that he plans
to run for a third term in 2002, but has not formally announced his candidacy.
In the poll, 67 percent of New Yorkers thought
more favorably of Pataki as a result of his crusade to toughen state gun
That was the opinion of 74 percent of the Democrats
polled, 68 percent of the independents and 57 percent of the Republicans.
The governor's efforts to enact tougher environmental
standards caused 65 percent of those polled to view him more favorably.
Peter Ragone, a spokesman for former federal Housing
Secretary Andrew Cuomo -- one of Pataki's potential Democratic opponents
next fall -- criticized the governor for trying to co-opt traditional Democratic
''George Pataki and George Bush seem to have the
same campaign strategies, which is to do your best to look like a Democrat,''
Pataki led Cuomo 47 to 39 percent with 9 percent
The governor was ahead of state Comptroller H. Carl
McCall, another Democrat who is angling for Pataki's job, 46 to 35 percent
with 15 percent undecided.
Among Democrats, the poll found Cuomo beating McCall
44 to 31 percent, with 21 percent undecided.
McCall's camp was undeterred by the poll's results,
calling the state comptroller an "underdog ... who has worked hard for
everything he's achieved.''
"No one will outwork Carl in the next year and a
half,'' said McCall spokesman Joe Trippi.
The poll of 906 registered voters was conducted
June 20-24 and had a 3 point margin of error. The sample of 369 Democrats
polled has a 5 point margin of error.
Court OKs keeping FBI Brady Act records retention.
NRA v. Ashcroft, 00-1332.
The FBI can keep the records. The Supreme
Court made no comment when it upheld a 2 to 1 federal appeals court ruling
that ``nothing in the Brady Act that unambiguously prohibits temporary
retention of information about lawful
transactions.'' The one dissenting Judge said that the records
keeping was ``an unauthorized power grab'' by the Justice Department.
From the DC Appeals Court Ruling, (Stephen P. Halbrook argued for the
To begin with, section 922(t)(2)(C) does not say "destroy
immediately"; it says only "destroy." When Congress wants to
instruct an agency not only to take certain action, but to take it immediately,
it knows how to do so.

President attacks gun rights
The new President is really going to attack our rights,
it is his mission in life. The AMA only gets about 20% of its funds
from fees that member doctors pay. Over the years it has had the
laws written so that it is responsible for writing each year the books
that all of the insurance companies and doctors use for billings but that
brings in millions and millions of dollars that they can use to promote
their anti-gun policies. Note the new phrase "Pocket Rocket", expect
that to be used more.
FROM HIS SPEECH:
... Next, let's look at how
the disease spreads, what is its vector, or delivery system. To do
that, we need to look at the gun market today. Where the hard, cold reality
is -- guns are more deadly than ever. Gun manufacturers – in the pursuit
of technological innovation and profit – have steadily increased
the lethality of firearms. The gun industry's need for new products and
new models to stimulate markets that are already oversupplied with guns
-- has driven their push to innovate. Newer firearms mean more profits.
With the American gun manufacturers producing more than 4.2 million new
guns per year – and imports adding another 2.2 million annually – you'd
think the market would be saturated.
HERE TO LINK TO THE Inaugural address OF Richard F. Corlin, MD, President
But that's why they have to sell gun owners new
guns for their collections – because guns rarely wear out. Hardly anyone
here is driving their grandfathers 1952 Plymouth. But a lot of people probably
have their grandfathers 1952 revolver. So gun manufacturers make
guns that hold more rounds of ammunition, increase the power of that ammunition,
and make guns smaller and easier to conceal.
These changes make guns better suited for crime,
because they are easy to carry and more likely to kill or maim whether
they are used intentionally or unintentionally. In fact, one of the most
popular handgun types today is the so-called “pocket rocket”: a palm-sized
gun that is easy to conceal, has a large capacity for ammunition and comes
in a high caliber.
... The question remains, what are
we – the physician community -- going to do about it? I can tell you first
what we're not going to do. We're not going to advocate changing or abolishing
the Second Amendment to the Constitution. We really don't have to, to make
The gun lobby loves to use the Second Amendment
as a smokescreen – to hide the reality of the damage that guns do – and
to prevent our looking any deeper into the facts and statistics of that
damage. We've all heard that tired old statement: Guns don't kill people
– people kill people. But how does that explain these facts? A gun kept
in the home for self-defense is 22 times more likely to be used to kill
a family member or a friend than an intruder. The presence of a gun in
the home triples the risk of homicide – and increases the risk of suicide
And listen to this quote: “. . . the Second Amendment
has been the subject of one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the
word fraud, on the American people by special interest groups that I have
ever seen in my lifetime. . . . The very language of the Second Amendment
refutes any argument that it was intended to guarantee every citizen an
unfettered right to any kind of weapon. Surely the Second Amendment
does not remotely guarantee every person the constitutional right to have
a Saturday night special or a machine gun. . . .There is no support in
the Constitution for the argument that federal and state governments are
powerless to regulate the purchase of such firearms.”
These are the words of a respected conservative
jurist, the late Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Warren Burger.
