TRIPOLI/BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Hundreds of Libyans handed in weapons left over from last year's war on Saturday, part of a drive by the North African country to rid its streets of arms and crack down on rogue militia groups.

"We want our country to be safe and secure ... We don't want to see weapons anymore," Tripoli resident Mohammed Salama said, as he stood in line to hand over a rifle.

"We want to live our lives. The time of war is over."

Submitter's note: Actually no, Libya is still in the midst of a civil war with several factions still vying for power.

The consequences of the controversial Fast and Furious undercover operation put in place by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in 2009 have been deadlier than what has been made public to date, Univision said.

Among other groups of Fast and Furious victim stories Univision says it will tell in the special to air Sunday evening at 7 p.m., is one about how 16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juarez in January of 2010 were gunned down with weapons the Obama administration gave to drug cartel criminals through Fast and Furious.

Mike Crow cleans, shoots and loves every one of his dozens of guns.

For the Oak Ridge, Tenn., native, the weapons are about exercising his constitutional rights, protecting his family, passing down traditions and just having a good time.

"I think the legal aspects of supporting the Second Amendment are extremely important," said Crow, 58, a firearms dealer. "In a perfect world, without carry permits, anybody ought to be able to own a gun and anybody ought to be able to carry a gun."

In her ruling, George cited several errors and omissions in the 2006 trial and subsequent appeal to the Georgia Supreme Court that she said prejudiced the jury.

Primary among the errors the judge pointed out was that the jury wasn’t properly informed of what rights McNeil had to protect himself and his then-teenage son from someone threatening them with a deadly weapon.

“The Court therefore concludes that counsel’s error was both significant and impactful upon McNeil’s case, to the point where it was prejudiced thereby,” George wrote.

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton implored attendees of a gun rights conference in Smithtown Sunday to vote for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in November or risk further attacks to the Second Amendment and their ability to bear arms.

In remarks to more than 700 people at the annual conference of the Sportsmen's Association for Firearms Education Inc., Bolton, ambassador for more than a year under former President George W. Bush, criticized the UN and President Barack Obama for pushing policies that serve as "an assault on our sovereignty."

The most prized possessions of Bonnie and Clyde, the notorious lovebird bandits killed nearly 80 years ago, were sold for a price that the couple could only imagine getting after one of their infamous bank jobs.

One of the featured items of the auction was Bonnie Parker's personal Colt .38 snub-nosed revolver, which sold for $264,000. Clyde Barrow's Colt .45 sold for $240,000. Parker's revolver was found taped to her inner thigh and Barrow's on his waistband the day they were ambushed and fatally shot by a police posse in Louisiana in 1934.

As a teenager, Paul Dressel became intrigued with guns, but couldn’t afford ones with fancy stocks and engravings.

"So I’d buy older guns and started fixing them up," the now 70-year-old said at his West Valley shop on a recent afternoon.

But it was when he purchased a duplicator — a machine that carves wood into gun stocks — in 1983, that his interest in guns became serious.

He began turning blocks of wood into gun stocks and selling them.

"I had to justify the cost of the damn thing," he said of the machine. "I’d run the thing night and day just to pay for the damn thing."

We need to prevent the next president from appointing a Supreme Court that will reverse the two landmark Second Amendment cases – Heller and McDonald. In those decisions, the Supreme Court ruled that all American citizens, no matter where they live, have the right to legally possess a firearm as a means of self-defense. These decisions were a tremendous accomplishment, and they finally ratified what our Founding Fathers envisioned when they drafted the Second Amendment.
 

FL: PolitiFact: Checking two NRA claims about Sen. Bill Nelson and guns

Koper, the professor who wrote a report about the ban for the Department of Justice, said that the NRA's claim is misleading. The purpose of the ban was to restrict weapons with multiple military-style features that were less appropriate for hunting purposes. Also, gun manufacturers continued to make weapons very similar to the banned weapons by removing some or all of the military-style features, allowing sport shooters to get similar substitutes in many cases.

We rated this claim False.

Leaders of the Garden State’s oldest and largest gun violence prevention group are calling for action at the federal level.

New Jersey still has an assault weapons ban, but the federal ban expired in 2004. Ceasefire New Jersey is calling for reinstatement of the ban, so that it would be more difficult to illegally traffic the weapons here. The group also wants federal legislation to close a loophole that allows people to buy guns at gun shows without having to undergo a background check and Ceasefire NJ is pushing for passage of the ‘Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act.’

“In the next four years, 48,000 Americans won’t be so lucky, because they’ll be murdered with guns in the next president’s term, enough to fill over 200 theaters,” Mr. Barton, 22, says in the advertisement. “So when you watch the presidential debates, ask yourself, ‘Who has a plan to stop gun violence?’”

The advertisement will appear in Colorado and on cable stations in Washington and other cities across the country, said Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a bipartisan coalition of more than 725 mayors that is sponsoring the ad as part of its “Demand a Plan” campaign.

The Overland Park City Council passed the new law Monday night. The ordinance allows gun owners to openly carry firearms in public places if they keep the weapons in holsters with the safety engaged and within their immediate control.

The law applies to all public places except buildings that have signs prohibiting weapons. The ordinance allows any legal gun owner to openly display a firearm in public. Guns won't be allowed inside city-owned buildings.

She told me that, normally, she hated my column, hated every word — or every word she read, admitting that she could not recall reading any of my columns to the end.

But this one, the one about the gun, she liked.

Maybe, she said, she even loved it.

“I read every word,” she said, her honesty so sweetly shared that I had to smile. “It was the best thing you’ve ever done.”
 

KS: Bill that would allow guns on campus not passed by Kansas Senate

In Kansas, concealed carry laws prohibit people from bringing any firearm or weapon into a public building, which includes every building on K-State’s campus.

Recently, a bill was presented before the Kansas Senate that contained a proposal forbidding “no firearms allowed” signs on public buildings unless there is some kind of visible security. If the bill would have passed, the security in place would have monitored and prohibited every potential weapon entering the building; however, the bill the Senate did not pass it.

“Those legally licensed by the state should have the option to carry for self-defense,” said Robert Auten, state director of Kansas Students for Concealed Carry and assistant registrar at K-State.

Paul Ryan warned a group of hunters and fishermen Saturday evening that he “shudder(s)” to think what President Obama would do “if he never has to face the voters ever again.”

“You see the federal government is already infringing upon the First Amendment right to religious liberty,” Ryan said, referring to the federal mandate that all employers include insurance coverage for birth control.

Well, I can believe women have the right to choose their health-care options and still want to reduce the number of abortions. I can encourage business development and protect sensitive environments. And I can support Second Amendment rights and own a gun while still thinking it's a bad idea to arm college students.

This list was compiled from a number of sources, including those serving as informal advisers to the Romney campaign. The Republican nominee has not specified publicly on favorites for the court. Many names mentioned are relatively young judges named to the federal bench by President George W. Bush.

No sooner had the final gasps of the 2012 Gun Rights Policy Conference been heard than did the Internet start breathing fire with a new angle to Washington’s wolf management story that is certain to maintain traction in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

NBC News and its Seattle affiliate, KING 5 News, are reporting that Orcas Island Democrat Kevin Ranker (40th District) is raising a stink over the killing of the Wedge wolf pack. This column has detailed the problems with that pack here, here and here over the past several weeks.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
