"While anti-gun organizations are demanding that Congress quickly pass new legislation in response to the Virginia Tech massacre, the [CCRKBA] suggests another approach: Abolish the concept of 'gun free zones.'"

"'Every tragic school shooting, and attacks such as those at Salt Lake City's Trolley Square, Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas, and the Tacoma Mall had one common denominator,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. 'They all happened in so-called ‘gun-free zones'.'"

"Last spring's attack at Virginia Tech occurred months after the university proudly lobbied the Virginia Assembly to continue prohibiting legally-licensed students and faculty from carrying defensive handguns on campus. ..." ...

"Senator Tom Coburn isn't going to go away quietly. As you know from previous GOA alerts, the Republican Senator from Oklahoma has placed a hold on the noxious legislation that is being pushed by Senator Chuck Schumer of New York."

"... But not content to remain silent, Sen. Coburn sent a pointed letter to the Department of Veterans Affairs, asking them to justify their actions."

"Coburn states in his letter that the Veterans Affairs continues to send the names of 'approximately 1,000 additional veterans' to the Department of Justice every month. According to the Congressional Research Service, Coburn says, this has resulted in 'approximately 140,000 Veterans' being added into the NICS background check system." ...

"Why?"

"Watch and see:" ...

Submitter's Note: This recall petition drive, open to all NRA Life members and all Annual members of at least five consecutive years' standing, is aimed at removing Joaquin Jackson from the NRA Board of Directors, based upon his media statements in support of assault weapon and magazine capacity restrictions.

Non-eligible folks can help by passing word of this effort and our blog to their shooting friends and associates.

CT: Allowing Concealed Weapons Poses Danger To Campus

"The UConn chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus wishes to hold a protest against the seemingly wise choice of not allowing any weapons on the UConn campus. It comes down to personal safety, they say. You never know when the next massacre may occur, and as such people need to be prepared to defend themselves. These gun nuts seem to believe that allowing more people to carry the instruments most responsible for violence can solve that problem. In other words, the solution to gun-toting lunatics would be more guns (and, presumably, more lunatics to carry them). ... getting rid of guns solves the problem of gun violence." ...

Since the Rochester Police Department ramped up enforcement efforts on Oct. 5, it has confiscated at least 56 guns and arrested more than 330 people.

At a late afternoon press conference, Police Chief David Moore said the city’s Zero Tolerance Initiative has been a success and will continue.

This initiative began after Rochester saw three homicides in less than a week. "I'm telling my officers to step it up and be aggressive," said Moore.

The City has estimated that the Zero Tolerance Initiative is costing about $52,000 a day. Moore said Mayor Robert Duffy has told him, "We'll continue this until we curb the violence."

Jurors ruled the city of Pasadena must pay $80,000 to a quadriplegic man who sued because police officers allegedly jerked him out of his wheelchair and hung him upside down to search him.

Cornell Greathouse sued the city and four police officers for assault, battery, false arrest, false imprisonment, excessive force, intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and negligence.

A Superior Court jury decided Wednesday the officers weren't culpable, but they ruled Pasadena must pay $78,939.12 for failing to train officers on how to deal with a quadriplegic.

Officers responding a 2005 disturbance call encountered Greathouse and, according to the suit, they pulled him out of wheelchair and hung him over a 4-foot concrete wall in order to search him.
