MI: Jury finds open-carry advocate not guilty after arrest by Detroit police
Submitted by: Corey Salo

After Detroit police arrested 24-year-old Elijah Woody in September, officials said they had an open-and-shut case.

They claimed to have dash-cam footage that proved conclusively that Woody, who admits to regularly openly and legally carrying firearms, illegally had a handgun concealed in his waistband beneath a puffy coat on Sept. 13.

That evidence apparently wasn't quite as conclusive in the eyes of a jury who found Woody not guilty of the felony carrying a concealed weapon charge Friday.

He maintained he was openly carrying his $550 Glock handgun.

"I don't have a CPL," he said, "so what in my right mind would make me want to hide it."

Police on Friday found a rocket launcher inside a Bushwick, Brooklyn home during a raid for guns and drugs.
Officers from a Bronx precinct provided a tip to the 83rd Precinct in Brooklyn that guns and drugs were inside a home at 846 Knickerbocker Ave., sources said.
The 83rd Precinct officers raided the ground-floor apartment of the Bushwick home Friday morning, and found a military-grade rocket launcher in the home, sources said.
The rocket-launcher was a single-use weapon and had already been used, sources said. It cannot be re-armed.

A Glasgow Police Department officer is suing a Glasgow store and its owners after he suffered a hand injury when a gun he was handling accidentally discharged.

Darrell Smith asked March 26 to look at a Sig Sauer Copperhead .380-caliber handgun that was in a display case at Barren Outdoors on Scottsville Road, and his lawsuit alleges that an employee handed the gun to Smith without performing safety checks.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: And apparently the officer also failed to perform safety checks.
Many good comments.
 

Smart Guns Save Lives. So Where Are They?

Mr. Kristof's column starts off with a lie: "Smart Guns Save Lives."
No "smart gun" has ever saved a life.
After we slog through his polemic far enough, we discover the source of the lie: “Smart guns are going to save lives.”
That's an opinion; it's not a fact.
Then he says we must do as he wishes "for the children."
He does lament the unintended consequences of the stumbling, bumbling NJ state legislature's knee-jerk anti-gun stupidity.
Any firearm which can be digitally activated can be digitally deactivated.
Mr. Kristof is a skillful writer.
But as his fellow NY Times Op-Ed columnist Maureen Dowd says in her piece today, "Artful falsehood is more dangerous than artless falsehood, because fewer people see through it."

In the wake of Oscar nominations, Academy members begin buzzing over recent criticism of the film’s subject, Chris Kyle
Even as “American Sniper” breaks January box-office records and revels in six Oscar nominations, criticism over the subject of the film, sharpshooter Chris Kyle, is rising and reaching into the Academy of Motion Picture of Arts and Sciences, which votes on the Academy Awards.
Over the weekend, multiple Academy members told TheWrap that they had been passing around a recent article by Dennis Jett in The New Republic that attacks the film for making a hero out of Kyle, who said: “The enemy are savages and despicably evil,” and his “only regret is that I didn’t kill more.”

Democracy works for those who show up. Too many gun owners stayed home in the last election. If gun owners can't be bothered to vote, should they complain as they lose their legal right to own firearms?

Port Arthur, Texas Police Chief Mark Blanton went on record saying he opposes Governor Greg Abbott’s plans to sign a law making Texas the 45th state to allow some kind of open carry.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is thrilled with Blanton’s opposition.

According to Fox 4 KBTV, Blanton said his reasoning for opposing open carry is that “citizens are going to call [police] when they see someone carrying a weapon.”

The threat Operation Choke Point poses to the Second Amendment has been real on paper without being tangible for quite some time. Now, however, with at least one gun store owner talking about the pressure brought to bear against his business by Operation Choke Point–any abstraction associated with the Department of Justice’s operation has vanished.

 

SC: Reading, writing and rifles: Legislators hope to bring gun rights and safety into schools

Math, science, social studies, language arts --- all are universally accepted as the core subjects students should be taught.

But what about gun rights and safety?

Several South Carolina legislators think those topics should be added to the list, with at least one member of the Beaufort County Legislative Delegation among them.

Two bills --- one in the House and the other in the Senate --- call for bringing Second Amendment-related curricula into the schools, with students being taught about gun rights and safety. The Senate bill even suggests creating an elective that involves marksmanship training.

Last week I wrote here about actor Liam Neesom’s incredible, yet typically liberal, hypocrisy in condemning widespread American gun ownership while he himself makes millions starring in movies depicting extreme gun violence, most of it wrought by his character. Well, Liam’s getting his wish, at least in his own particular situation. The company the furnished the weapons used in the series of Taken films, PARA USA, has decided it will no longer furnish firearms for any movie in which Neesom appears. Here’s the article from Daily Caller reporting their announcement:

In this day and age, it’s difficult to believe the naiveté of people who want to keep stripping down the Second Amendment. As someone who has worked with law enforcement here and abroad, I have been warning people since events like the Beslan massacre that these types of attacks will happen here.

Unlike us Americans, terrorists don’t feel the need to rush in accomplishing their objectives. They’ll strike when the moment is right, which is when we don’t expect it or when we’re least prepared by letting down our guard.

Pennsylvania Act 192 went into effect Jan. 5. It enables anyone or any organization “adversely affected” by a local gun ordinance to sue the municipality; legal standing is afforded even if the plaintiff doesn’t reside in the municipality. The National Rifle Association, a gun rights group based in Virginia, is suing Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and the City of Lancaster — Lancaster over its 2009 ordinance that requires gun owners to report lost or stolen guns to the police.

Representative Mike Honda (D-California) is taking aim at the Second Amendment with 3 proposed bills, which include making it illegal to make your own gun at home.

“These bills are sensible, reasonable measures to limit the damage that can be inflicted by guns and those who mean harm with them,” Congressman Honda said. “We have seen too many people injured and killed by guns to just stand by and do nothing. These bills will modernize our gun laws to reflect how weapons are currently getting into the wrong hands.”

Where would the “Daily Show,” Huffington Post or dozens of liberal blogs be without South Carolina?

Palmetto State lawmakers never disappoint, it seems, when it comes to introducing bills restricting abortion rights, attacking same-sex marriage or championing the right to bear arms that get some of their fellow Americans riled.

Nationwide, more and more women are getting firearms.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, 80 percent of gun retailers saw an increase in women between 2011 and 2012. The number of women who owned guns spiked to 23 percent in 2011, compared to 13 percent in a 2005 Gallup poll, according to Natalie Foster’s website, “The Girl’s Guide to Guns.”

A store clerk at the Jefferson Golden Dawn’s Sporting Goods department said the same trend can be seen in Ashtabula County.
 

PA: PG columnist should have checked facts about NRA and gun manufacturers

Post-Gazette columnist and former ambassador Dan Simpson failed to fact check when writing “Whitewashing the Gun Lobby” (Jan. 14), which claimed the National Rifle Association serves as a front to increase sales for manufacturers.

If Mr. Simpson had done the research, he would know the NRA is staunchly committed to protecting the Second Amendment rights of its 5 million dues-paying members. Like it or not, the NRA vigorously defends the principles those members hold dear, as would be expected of any membership-based organization.

Although we support a person's right to own a gun, we can't justify the need for those weapons to be carried by students, faculty or others on college and university campuses in the state.

The criminal justice committee in the Florida House of Representatives will begin considering such a bill when it meets Tuesday. The bill, filed by Rep. Greg Stuebe, R-Sarasota, would allow for people with concealed weapons licenses to carry guns on campuses. A similar bill also has been filed in the Senate by Greg Evers, R-Baker. The bills have failed in the past, and we see no reason that it should be any different this time.

On January 15 2015, just over two months after winning a gubernatorial re-election with the NRA’s endorsement, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (R) bucked the NRA and stood with Gabby Giffords in opposing a bill which would have “revised” his state’s concealed carry law.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero (42B.C)
