    AROUND THE NATION, A RISING TIDE:COMMUNITIES CLAMOR FOR ACTION ON GUN VIOLENCE PREVENTION In Duluth, Minnesota this afternoon, the bells will be ringing. Duluth's citizens are not alone in demanding action. Washington D.C. – In states throughout the nation, the extreme gun lobby and their willing accomplices in public office are getting stiff reactions to their hard-headed refusal to support reasonable steps to protect the safety of American families. Some of those responses: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Monday, two Senators received a frosty reception for offering no genuine response to combating what has been a terrible year of gun violence.

    Just as there is a War on Drugs and a War on Terrorism ongoing in this country, there is a war without such a catchy name that continues unabated in America. That is the War on Guns. And just as the War on Drugs has spent billions of dollars with quite literally nothing to show for it but growing incidences of violence and the highest incarceration rates in the world; and as the War on Terrorism has cost untold losses of liberty to date; the War on Guns has prohibitive expenses all its own. The grassroots forces in the War...

    Million Mom March comes up a bit short Nick Coleman, Star Tribune March 16, 2005 NICK0316 There were a million moms at the Cathedral of St. Paul Tuesday. Minus 999,979. Five years ago, the moms could have taken a run at a million. But five years ago is a long time, when you are talking about politics. Five years ago, the Million Mom March turned out thousands against guns in St. Paul and then, on a beautiful Mother's Day in May of 2000, assembled three-quarters of a million strong in Washington, D.C., to demand that the nation's lawmakers put an...

    Stevens attracts national attention Anti-gun-violence advocate noticed by NRA, Drudge By JASON PISCIA STAFF WRITER A State Journal-Register story about an anti-gun-violence advocate's run-in with Springfield police for allegedly having an illegal firearm in her home has sparked interest among Internet news junkies, especially those in the pro-gun-rights community.

As a result, the...

    Amazon.com, the online superstore, has united with the anti-gun movement this holiday season. Amazon.com is promoting the Million Mom March, a group known for its support of strict gun control laws and regulations. It will give five percent of every sale to the organization when visitors access Amazon’s website through the Million Mom March site.

Since then, the group has supported many anti-gun proposals, such as New Jersey Assembly Bill 3942, which was proposed to outlaw the sale...

    Dear StoptheNRA supporter, Momentum is building and pressure is mounting for Congress to renew the Assault Weapons Ban. With less than 30 legislative days left before the ban expires, we must maintain this momentum. Here's what's been going on: We have launched our television ad campaign. This week we started broadcasting cable television commercials in the Washington D.C. area. Click here to view the ad. With your help we can keep this ad and others running through the summer to keep the pressure on Congress. Isn't it worth $25 to keep assault weapons off our streets? The Brady Campaign has...

    Mother’s Day on the Mall Gunning for gun-free citizens. By Daniel J. Flynn The Million Mom March took place on Sunday. Roughly 999,000 moms decided to stay home. The marchers who did show up, though, had a lot to say. "I don't think guns should be legal," declared Joan Davis, who traveled to the Capitol from Manhattan. "I don't think the average person should have a gun." "Ideally, I guess I would like to see a total ban on guns," held Bonnie Rock of suburban D.C. "But in reality, I would be satisfied with getting rid of the assault weapons...

    Newly elected President Bill Clinton wasted little time in seizing upon “assault weapons” as a political issue. Along with “midnight basketball” and the never-to-be-fulfilled promise of 100,000 new police officers, it quickly became part of an effort to transform concern for public safety into a political issue.

    TKO-Liberty Belles Trounce "Million Moms" by M. Hollenbeck You would think that a forum being held at a college in Los Angeles (arguably, but hardly so, Gun Control Capitol of the West) with the topic "Gun Ownership vs. Gun Control - Which Is Safer?" would present a safe haven for the emotional rhetoric of gun-controllers like Charles Blek and impressionable youngsters like Jennifer Mendoza. However, when a debate is sponsored by a Libertarian group such as Students For Individual Liberty, the emotionalism that works so well with the gun-control True Believers and collegiate skulls full of mush is just so...
