... "What that means is, not only must the signs come down, immediately, but other Metro policies for employee termination due to willful misconduct must be invoked against the responsible manager—otherwise, the ability to discipline any employee will be legally jeopardized if it is established that management turns a blind eye to gross violations from those in its rank for reasons of political sympathy." ...

"Some among the forcible citizen disarmament lobby dismiss the Second Amendment as the final bulwark against tyranny on the grounds that against a military superpower such as the U.S. likes to think it continues to be, citizens with their private small arms would not stand a chance. Therefore, apparently, the Second Amendment can be ignored. One example of this argument is presented by blogger Jenna Myers Karvunidis, in the wake of the Chardon, Ohio high school shooting:" ...

"Bruce, You write this stuff and then wonder why I conflate you so-called lawful gun owners with the criminal variety."
"Hmmm, I'm not exactly sure how making firearms in your home could be considered any more illegal than, say, baking a cake, or making a knife, but mike seems to believe that such activities are grounds to 1) refer to us as so-called lawful gun owners and 2) smear us as being no different from criminal gun owners. ..." ...

"This is because, he suggests, the scanners blend metallic areas into the dark background - so if an object is not directly placed on the body, it will not show up on the scan." ...

"Predictably, I got response from gun enthusiasts across the country, some of them pretty reasonable. One guy wrote to say that, while he agreed with much of what I wrote, a second Obama term poses a threat to gun-owners, if only because he would have the opportunity to name more Supreme Court justices that might overturn the broadened interpretation of the Second Amendment established by the Roberts Court. That may be true, depending on who retires when." ...

"When states have (or had) discretionary gun carrying license system, they have often provided that people who engage in 'business activities that involve heightened risk, such as the need to carry cash or other 'street valued' commodities' should generally get licenses. ... The theory is that these people are at heightened risk of robbery, and the loss to them from the robberies is likely to be especially grave. And this theory seems factually plausible. To my knowledge, no-one has quantified how great the risk tends to be ... but it’s certainly reasonable that the danger faced by someone who routinely carries lots of valuables is greater than that faced by, say, me."

"This campaign was launched on the same day that the Seattle Times and other local news agencies were reporting that recently-released University District rapist Robert Douglas Hitt had been arrested in a U District house where, reportedly armed with a knife, he allegedly tied up six women and forced one of them to completely disrobe.

Heller ... and McDonald v. City of Chicago (2010), in which the court found that the Second Amendment applies to the states."

"Relying in part on those two decisions, Judge Legg held that the Maryland law 'impermissibly infringes the right to keep and bear arms, guaranteed by the Second Amendment' by imposing 'a rationing system' that 'aims … simply to reduce the total number of firearms carried outside the home by limiting the privilege to those who can demonstrate 'good reason' beyond a general desire for self-defense.'" ...
