GA: Challenge to Georgia's "Stand Your Ground" Self-Defense Law

Baptist minister sued Gov. Nathan Deal and the Georgia attorney general, challenging the state's "Stand Your Ground Law," which allows people to use deadly force outside their home if they feel threatened. The Rev. Markel Hutchins, 32, a minister and civil rights leader, claim's Georgia's law, enacted in 2006, violates constitutional rights of due process and equal protection, and civil rights laws. So-called Stand Your Ground laws have come under scrutiny since the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. Martin's killer, Neighborhood Watch volunteer Georgia Zimmerman, was charged with second-degree murder on Wednesday, the day after Hutchins sued Gov. Deal and Attorney General Samuel Olens, in Federal Court.
 

NBC Runs "Biased" Anti-Gun Story

In an attempt to combat failing ratings, NBC’s Rock Center on Wednesday night aired another biased and sensationalized piece on Remington Arms, and America’s firearms industry. The Rock Center reporter, Scott Cohn, has a well established anti-gun bias — as evidenced by his 2010 “story” on the Remington 700. Cohn and NBC alluded to an unwarranted government regulation of the firearms industry by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). There should be no doubt, last night’s segment was just another piece of agenda-driven “journalism” clearly designed to promote a CPSC takeover of the firearms industry.

A top Vatican cardinal whom the Italian media have dubbed "Cardinal Rambo" is defending his extensive collection of guns. The news agency AFP reports that the media have been having a field day with Cardinal Domenico Calcagno and his passion for guns, which is contrary to the Catholic Church's stance of non-violence. A website called Savonanews, based in the town of Savona where Calcagno used to be the bishop, claims he owns at least 13 weapons, including a .357 Magnum. The 68-year-old Calcagno said he doesn't know what all the fuss is about.

A new study has found that someone holding a gun appears to other people to be bigger than they actually. MSNBC reports that researchers out of UCLA conducted an experiment in which people looked at pictures of the hands of men holding things. The hands were all the same size and in the same position, but some of the objects were more threatening than others. MSNBC writes: Then, participants picked from among silhouettes that suggested how tall or muscular they thought the rest of the man's body was.
 

WI: Wisconsin Court: Ban on Felons having Guns Constitutional

The Wisconsin Court of Appeals has upheld the state's ban on felons having guns, even in cases in which a person was convicted of a nonviolent act. The Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reports that court ruled such a ban is constitutional because it is "substantially related to the important governmental objective of enhancing public safety." The ruling pointed out that no court has ever struck down state or federal bans, and that the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals "recently held that it is constitutional to categorically ban felons from possession guns." The ruling stems from the case of Thomas Pocian, who was convicted of three felonies for check forgery when he was a teenager in 1986. He was sentenced to three years of probation

A wild scene on a street in New York City, as a retired police officer was in the right place at the right time and gunned down an armed robbery suspect who was trying to get away. The New York Daily News reports two armed men robbed a pharmacy in East Harlem Thursday morning. When they walked out they came up against three cops responding to a silent alarm set off in the store. One man immediately surrendered. But the second would not go without a fight. He tried to shoot the cops but he missed. He ran off, firing shots along the way.

Homicides in Chicago soared by 60 percent in the first three months of 2012, continuing a troublesome trend that began late last year. Nonfatal shootings also rose sharply in the first quarter, Police Department statistics show.
The worsening violence comes as the Emanuel administration touts its efforts to combat gang crime and add officers and resources to some of the city's most dangerous neighborhoods.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: They blame the warm weather but no one wants to mention the real root causes: political corruption and its conjoined twin -- tight gun control.
 

WI: N.R.A.'s Influence Seen in Expansion of Self-Defense Laws

No one had yet heard of a Florida teenager named Trayvon Martin when a group of Wisconsin Republicans got together last year to discuss expanding a self-defense bill before the State Legislature.
The bill, known as the Castle Doctrine, made it harder to prosecute or sue people who used deadly force against an intruder inside their house. But the Wisconsin legislators, urged on by the National Rifle Association in a series of meetings, wanted it to go further. They crafted an amendment that extended the bill's protections to include lawns, sidewalks and swimming pools outside the residence, as well as vehicles and places of business.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks. — Thomas Jefferson, Encyclopedia of T. Jefferson, 318, Foley, Ed., reissued 1967.
