PA: CCW-holding woman shoots serial rapist--YES!!!
Submitted by: Anonymous

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
A serial rapist has been terrorizing women in Pittsburgh for several weeks, attacking them as they walk around and dragging them into bushes. Last week he even tried to rape a 15-year-old girl.

Thursday morning, he attacked the wrong woman. Now he's in the hospital, under arrest for his attack on her and the other attacks, recovering from surgery: she shot him twice in the gut with her .357. (Scroll to bottom of story to read details of how she shot him). YES! Can we give this woman a medal?

"Sen Dick Durbin & Lt Gov Wood Lose Crowd of Bussed-In Kids"

"Anti-gun movement's attempt to manipulate press foiled"

"If there's one thing most conservatives can agree on, it is that the left is well-versed in ways to manipulate the mainstream media, in order to advance a political agenda. But, this past Monday, an anti-gun rally--and what they expected to be a media bonanza for the group--was foiled by a coordinated effort of conservatives."

SD: South Dakota proposed jury nullification amendment should be supported
Submitted by: Duncan Adams

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
CNN's title to this anti-rights article is: "South Dakota proposed jury nullification amendment should be rejected". They are WRONG, so we changed it.
-------
"On next month's ballot, the voters of South Dakota will have the opportunity to amend a portion of their state Constitution."

"Amendment A, if adopted, will permit a defendant in a criminal case to make a novel argument to the jury. She can, if she chooses, admit that she is guilty as charged but ask the jury to acquit her anyway, because the law that she violated is wrong or unduly harsh."

KABA NOTE:

Jury nullification is among the final handful of barricades that prevents the "justice" system from destroying what is left of liberty. In a day where judges and attorneys tamper with juries to the point of deciding cases in advance, an amendment like this is not only a breath of fresh air, every state should take such positive steps. All liberty advocates in South Dakota are encouraged to support this move come election day.

In essence, one educated and self-empowered gunowner on a jury could end the persecution of a fellow gunowner who did nothing more than exercise his or her basic Constitutional rights.
 

Fifth Circuit - Mere Possession of Sawed-off Shotgun Constitutes "Crime of Violence"

This U.S. Fifth Circuit opinion - USA v Sema on 10/11/2002 (01-40836) declares that for purposes of sentencing, the mere possession of a sawed-off shotgun (less than 18 inch barrel) is a "crime of violence", thereby increasing the sentence. The Justices on the panel (Jolly, Smith, and DeMoss) consist of 2 Reagan appointees and one George HW Bush appointee. Jolly is from Mississippi. Smith and DeMoss from Texas. At the site, enter the date of 10-12-2002 to find the case. (Or click here for a direct link to the .pdf file.)

NJ: Officer injured "when gun discharges" - identity being withheld from public

"An off-duty Westwood police officer injured his hand after accidentally discharging his weapon early Saturday morning in a Washington Township home, authorities said."

"The officer, whose name was being withheld by police Saturday afternoon, was treated at Pascack Valley Hospital for a flesh wound where the bullet grazed his right hand, said Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli. He was released a few hours later."

QUESTIONS:

Why is this officer's name being withheld? When a citizen negligently discharges a firearm and causes injury, the anti-gun media vultures circle and descend, the camera hounds have a feast, and discredited anti-gun "statistics" are repeated monotonously.

Shouldn't the public be made aware that someone paid to carry a firearm in his official capacity cannot even keep from shooting himself in his own home? (Or, if it wasn't his own home, that he's dangerous at large, as well?)

Some Tips:

"Never let the muzzle - the barrel’s point of exit - point at anything you are not willing to destroy."

"Keep your finger away from the trigger until it’s time to shoot. This lessens the risk of accidental discharge. There is no need for the trigger finger to be in place any sooner."

"Be sure of your target. Know what it is, what is in line with it and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything you have not positively identified. "

"A leading national gun control advocate joined 5th District Congressional candidate Anne Sumers on Saturday as she spoke about her priority issue before more than 100 enthusiastic supporters at Borough Hall."

"Sarah Brady joined Sumers to demand tougher gun laws and gun safety initiatives. Senate candidate and fellow Democrat Frank R. Lautenberg also spoke at the rally, which drew members of several gun-control groups."

CONSIDER...

New Jersey arguably has the worst gun prohibitions of any state in the nation. If they aren't controlling enough, will anything satisfy Sarah Brady and her kind short of outright prohibition?

Here are a few choice quotes from this anti-gun, anti-hunting, anti-liberty editorialist:
-------
"The population is minuscule and the people who hunt are both dumb and few in number." ...

"...the gun owners and hunters who are about one thousandth of one percent of the people of this country. [Even Brady doesn't lie that large.] Are the rights of the sparse group of hunters in all the counties of the country more important than the dozen people who have been shot by a rifle in the past few days? [Yes.] Or of the young boy trying to enter his school building? [Yes, again. Thank you for asking.]"

"The gun lobby cries, 'Guns don't kill. People do.' If the man with the rifle did not have one, would he have been able to hurt the kid going into school? Please." ...

"The people do nothing. Give them a gun and they destroy the world." ...

"In the past week, a lot of people have been shot to death by these rifles they love and which shouldn't be around anywhere."

Scotland: "Crackdown to control menace of airguns"

"AIRGUNS will have to be licensed under government plans to crack down on a wave of crime by people armed with the weapons."

"The Home Office is poised to issue the tough new regulations amid mounting concern at airguns being abused by young people and adapted to fire live ammunition."

"The move follows a spate of incidents involving the guns. Last year a teenage girl from Glasgow was partially blinded after being shot with one and there have been air rifle attacks on firefighters across Scotland."

"According to police, airguns have also become the weapon of choice among drug gangs because they are so readily available." ...

QUESTION:

When clubs become the latest "weapon of choice," will they ban them, too? And even if they did, will people who want to terrorize innocent people obey such a ban?

New York Times is constantly seeking new and different ways to promote gun prohibitions -- probably because their utopian gun control makes New York City so safe. (Remember that case where 20 or so teenagers gang raped the jogger, beat her with a brick and left her for dead -- where the witnesses were too afraid to intervene because they were disarmed peasant serfs?)

Their latest joke involves putting bar codes on each bullet. Yes, you read that right. Here's a good laugh:
"Last week Ivan Grow, an inventor from Kansas City, Kan., patented something that he says will revolutionize firearms forensics: a gun that imprints an individual bar code on each bullet it shoots."

"Patrick Lawson, Mr. Grow's business partner, said, 'If I shot you with a bar-code bullet, the police could take the bullet and identify the gun it came from.' " ...
But it's not that funny. Such a system could only be as effective as the registry of "bar code compliant" firearms -- and that's long been the goal of the gun banners: the list with which to collect firearms after they are banned.

One thing these parrots seem to ignore is that the more patriotic among us would rather die standing up than turn 'em in -- and that we don't plan on dying. If one sniper scares these whining anti-gun Leftists, they ought to stop and think about what would happen if a national ban on handguns or hunting rifles were ever issued.

STAFFORD, Virginia (CNN) -- "A restaurant manager was arrested Sunday for allegedly calling in a fake report of a sniper on a shopping center roof because, police say, he 'wanted a day off.' "

"Richard L. Jones, 25, is charged under a new state statute against reporting a false terroristic threat, filing a false report, and obstruction of justice."

"Stafford County Sheriff Charles Jett said the department received an anonymous 911 call around 8:50 a.m. Sunday claiming a man was on the roof of the North Stafford Shopping Center with a rifle. The shopping center is half a mile away from Interstate 95, in a community between two cities where the sniper has struck."

"Emergency officials rushed to the scene, cordoned off a large area, and evacuated five businesses that were already open."

"A short time later, police received a call from a restaurant manager asking for their guidance on what to do with employees and whether the restaurant should close. Police say the call came from the same number as the original 911 call." ...
