MI: Gun law helping victims of crimes

"I absolutely would not hesitate to take somebody's life if it were in defense of my home, my wife or any of my friends," he said. "We've had enough of the thugs owning our streets and neighborhoods. Enough is enough."

And the law is on Heath's side.

Michigan's self-defense act will be a year old Monday. The law allows people to use deadly force, with no duty to retreat, if they reasonably think they face imminent death, great bodily harm or sexual assault. They can use deadly force anywhere they have a legal right to be.
 

DC: Supreme Court to Take On Contentious Cases in New Term

The court's high-profile agenda features a fourth examination of how the Bush administration and Congress deal with terrorism detainees, a separation-of-powers case that tests the limits of a president's power, and a host of discrimination and employment law cases. Last week, justices added the constitutionality of lethal injection to the list and said they would, in the midst of the 2008 presidential election, decide a fiercely partisan battle on voting rights.

Waiting in the wings from the District of Columbia is a potential showdown on the meaning of the Second Amendment and gun rights.

Cheryl Weissmann of Camarillo owns a 9 mm handgun, a .22-caliber automatic pistol and a Taurus revolver. She likes to go to Shooters Paradise in Oxnard at least twice a month and pop off a few rounds as a way to blow off steam.

Over the years, Kim Carsey of Moorpark has "fired just about everything — shotguns, Tommys, 9 millimeters"
Ventura resident Carly Gregory, a firearms newbie barely into her 20s, ticked off a list of guns she shot at a clinic in Rose Valley above Ojai this summer — a .22 Smith & Wesson handgun, a 9 mm Beretta and a .357 Magnum.
 

AR: Shooting was self-defense

VAN BUREN — No evidence has turned up to indicate that a 69-year-old woman’s fatal shooting of her grandson’s estranged wife was anything other than self-defense, a prosecutor says, so no charges will be filed.

Edna Higgins of Mountainburg told authorities she shot Heather Dyanne Mizell, 25, with a. 22-caliber rifle on July 27 as Mizell threatened her with a hammer in Higgins’ home in Mountainburg.
 

NJ: More guns do not equal more safety

The root of gun problems is often overlooked in discussions like these. Rampant gun use shouldn’t be solved by handing out more guns, but by handing out fewer. Rather than ask how gun incidents can be defused, we should ask how we can ensure that guns don’t fall into the wrong hands to begin with.

Limiting gun dispersal is not unconstitutional, as some argue. A case like Andrew Meyer’s should be enough to tell us that more brute force does not mean better enforcement of the Bill of Rights. Freer, less accountable Second Amendment rights will not bode well for our First Amendment rights.

Seattle police say four teenagers picked the wrong man to harass on a Metro bus late Friday night. Police say when one of the teens attempted to take the man's glasses, he pulled a knife and fought back.

Police spokeswoman Rene Witt says the man began swinging at his attackers in self defense. When the melee was over, four of the teens had cuts, including some with superficial cuts to their buttocks, and one had a dislocated shoulder. The man was not hurt.
 

Guantanamo inmates' rights to get fresh look

With just half of the court's docket set for 2007-08, room remains for the justices to add cases that could reshape the course of the term.

Among those it may add is one that could weigh the meaning of one of the best-known phrases in the Constitution: the right "to keep and bear arms" in the 2nd Amendment.

The court has never invoked this amendment to strike down a law restricting guns. That may be because the amendment begins by saying a "well-regulated militia" is "necessary to the security of a free State." For much of the court's history, it was ignored as archaic, merely a guarantee that states could maintain militias.

Some major cases the court could decide to hear this term:

D.C. GUN BAN: Both sides want the court to take the appeal of a lower court ruling striking down Washington, D.C.'s ban on handguns as a violation of the Second Amendment. (District of Columbia v. Heller, 07-290).

Liberty is a simple thing. It's the unassailable right to shout, flail your arms, even verbally provoke a politician, unmolested. Tyranny is when those small things can get you assaulted, incarcerated, injured and even killed.

Evidence of tyranny in America is mounting. For the "offense" of questioning John Kerry persistently and vociferously, Andrew Meyer was pounced upon, tasered, detained overnight, and charged with violently resisting arrest and disturbing the peace.

There can be no excuse for deploying a dangerous device to tackle someone who is confined, cuffed or non-confrontational.

Police pounced on him and arrested him for no other reason than that they can.
 

UN Members, Gun Lobby Face Treaty Fight

Britain, Japan, Australia and others are pushing for an unprecedented treaty regulating the arms trade worldwide, in a campaign sure to last years and to pit them against a determined American foe, the National Rifle Association. In what U.N. officials say is an "overwhelming" response, almost 100 governments have submitted ideas for such a treaty, to be reviewed over the next year. There's an "extremely urgent" need for controls on the international gun trade, says Kenya, echoing the sentiment in much of guns-besieged Africa. But in the U.S., the NRA says it sees a creeping attempt to limit civilian gun ownership within nations — even though the focus now is on setting standards for arms exports and imports.

The Supreme Court on Monday begins a term that could lead to enhanced rights for terrorism detainees, a ruling against part of a child pornography law and shorter prison terms for crack cocaine dealers. Whatever happened to the court’s march to the right?
Little has changed on the bench, where Justice Anthony Kennedy remains the decisive vote between four conservatives and four liberals. Looking ahead to this term’s lineup of cases, “I can’t identify a significant win for conservatives,” said Thomas Goldstein, a Washington lawyer who writes about the court and argues before it. The court could add a blockbuster case to its calendar if the justices opt to take a Second Amendment case from Washington, D.C..

GA: Woman Arrested, Strip-Searched After Power Line Dispute

A Barrow County woman says an off-duty deputy handcuffed and had her strip-searched because of a simple dispute over a power line.

“My life has never been the same since. I’m having a very hard time with it,” said Sue Worley.

A farm in Hoschton in Barrow County has been home to 60-year-old Worley all her life.

“I saw two sheriff’s cars drive up,” said Worley. She was handcuffed, arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

“It’s just pure, old-fashioned intimidation. They want people’s land and they don’t want to pay for it,” said Worley's lawyer, Don Evans. “They’re going to set their power poles wherever they want and if anybody gives them any lip, they’ll put you in jail.”

A former corrections officer and SWAT team member at the Utah State Prison was charged Friday with nine felony sex offenses involving a child.

Travis Bud Davis, 34, currently an Adult Probation and Parole agent now on paid administrative leave, was arrested Sept. 21 by Pleasant Grove police in front of the police station.

A woman walked in on Davis last Friday as he was allegedly sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in his home, said Pleasant Grove Police Capt. Cody Cullimore. The woman called the police, and Davis took off in his truck.

For Rudy Giuliani, it's always about 9/11 - even when it comes to his wife's ill-timed phone calls. Elaborating for the first time on why he interrupted a speech to the National Rifle Association this month to take a cell-phone call from his wife, Judith, Giuliani explained that, since 9/11, he and the missus always chat before flying. "Quite honestly, since Sept. 11, most of the time when we get on a plane, we talk to each other and just reaffirm the fact that we love each other," the Republican presidential hopeful told the Christian Broadcasting Network.

The latest report from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirms what many New Yorkers have long suspected -- namely, that most of the guns used to commit crimes downstate came from out-of-state. Using data compiled from guns seized in New York City last year, the ATF found that 85 percent of guns used in crimes flowed in from other states, with Virginia, Pennsylvania and Georgia at the top of the list.

CHICAGO - Videotapes of angry officers savagely beating civilians and charges that a murder plot was hatched within an elite special operations unit have Chicago's troubled police department reeling again.

Adding to the department's woes is word from federal prosecutors that they are investigating claims that homicide detectives tortured suspects into confessing to murders that landed them on death row in the 1980s.

The biggest shock came Wednesday when federal prosecutors charged special operations officer Jerome Finnigan with planning the murder of another member of the unit to keep him from talking to the government.

During the U.S. Supreme Court's new term beginning Monday, the justices will consider the fundamental issue of who is allowed to vote just in time for 2008's pivotal presidential elections.

The docket also includes a challenge to the Bush administration's war on terror, a question over the constitutionality of lethal injections and a test of a strict gun law, which could lead to a clarification of the Second Amendment.

As serious as area problems might be, the first thing that needs to be done is get guns off the street, said a group of area community leaders. "Overall we've seen a reduction in crime but the big problem is still the proliferation of guns. ... They are just everywhere," said Gary Mervis, chairman of the Project Exile Advisory Board. Mervis was among leaders, who included law enforcement officials and community activists, who met over lunch Friday at the Holiday Inn-Airport in Gates, to celebrate the ninth anniversary of Project Exile, a program focused on getting illegal guns off the streets of Rochester and Monroe County.

The blanketing of law enforcement around Northeast Jackson Friday was the last thing Fredrico Hamblin thought he would see. Hamblin was home alone Friday morning. He grew suspicious of a Crown Victoria he saw pass by several times. "I know three young black males in a regular car (like) that don't belong in this neighborhood, so I just watched them all day," he says. Hamblin witnessed two of them exit the car. He says they attempted to break into his home a short time later. "I found two black males wearing white tee shirts trying to enter my garage. I feared for my life so I took action," he says. "I shot 5-6 times, one of them dove over a car (next door)". Hamblin says the suspects then ran off into the nearby woods.
