Some young relatives of mine were in town this weekend and wanted to go see "Bowling for Columbine." I suggested that if they wanted to see a movie about successful gun control, they should just rent "Schindler's List."

limit the sale and distribution of guns and ammunition to stores owned and operated by the federal government
Oh YEAH, now there's a capital idea, let's just have the BATF run the gun stores. Any doubt as to the political party attached to this moron?

"King's crusade began late last month when, within hours of seeing Moore's movie, he walked into the Sports Authority in search of a fishing pole for his 9-year-old daughter, Amanda, and noticed well-stocked shelves of rifles, shotguns, pellet guns and ammunition."
Horror of horrors!!! Guns!!! For sale!! To citizens!!!
Mr. King exemplifies the arrogance, the intolerance, the ignorance, the self-righteousness and the political naivete and conceit of the liberal northeastern left. I wonder how Mr. King would have felt among real Americans - Teddy Roosevelt, John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, Ulysses S. Grant,
Robert E. Lee, George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, etc,etc, on this subject.
Pray, residents of America, that people like Mr. King choose to remain in New York where they belong, and not invade the heartland of a country they couldn't possibly even BEGIN to understand.

It's amazing how much easier it's been getting to get a gun since the 1968 gun control act and subsequent legislation since. Why I'll bet that if we pass a few more of these measures they'll be giving them out with McDonalds Happy meals. It's just easy, easy, easy. It never get's any tougher. And it wouldn't be any less easy until everyone is denied.
Initiatives like King's are important, said Andy Pelosi, executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence Education Fund, because they draw attention to the fact that by displaying firearms and ammunition alongside such merchandise as hiking gear and running shoes, they are made to seem like benign household items.
Let's keep the Pelosis in the country talking and soon we'll have everyone outside of the biggest urban areas voting solidly Republican.

White Plains Mayor Joseph Delfino and former Common Council President Rita Malmud said the sale of firearms is regulated by the state and is not a matter for city action.
How did NYC get away with it then?
"My heroes Abe Lincoln, John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King and John Lennon were all shot to death by guns," King said. "Imagine how different the world would be if they had lived."
o/` Has anybody seen / Councilman William King / Can you tell me when he'll be goooooooone... / He's a big fascist, yeah, it seems the fools, they stay strong / I just wish that he was finally gone! o/`

"A large gun and ammo department seems so out of place in White Plains," King said. "They should sell these things closer to where people go to hunt."
It would seem to me that it's the store's call on this. If the products didn't sell, then they wouldn't stock them. No retailer needs people like this telling them how to run their business.
"I am just fed up with the nonstop gun violence all over the nation and concerned about my daughter growing up in this violent society," King said recently, standing near the gun display in the Sports Authority.
I wonder how he is going to feel when his daughter gets raped by a brazen thug who knows his victims are defenseless physically and legally. Self-defense is already illegal in Britain, and violent crime is skyrocketing.
I am shocked that Sports Authority doesn't want to follow the corporate policies that drove K-Mart into bankruptcy.

"The myth is that these guns are used to dink cans, but they are really designed to kill people,"
Some people need killin'.
"My heroes Abe Lincoln, John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King and John Lennon were all shot to death by guns," King said.
Not to mention Rasputin, Huey Long, Adolf Hitler, and Nicoli Ceausescu.
