MT: The Takeover of Hardin: Tragedy, or Farce?
Submitted by: Larry

“This is the way we got taken,” said Carolyn Call of Provo, Utah, who said she gave Hilton her family’s silver statue to sell on the open market.

According to court documents, Hilton turned around and gave the statue to an attorney to pay for his services.

Two California attorneys said Wednesday that after learning of Hilton’s latest activities they planned to follow him to Montana to seek payment on the outstanding judgments against him.

“Once I know that there is an asset or some sort of funds to go after, we’ll go after it,” said Call’s attorney, Roger Naghash.

This doesn’t answer everything, but it does suggest that we can stand down from General Quarters — even though we should still keep our powder dry, as it were.

A homeowner fires shots at a suspect outside their home in West Chester. Police say a man kicked in the door to Edward Honerlaw's home in the 8200 block of West Chester Road, shortly before 2 pm today. After a brief scuffle, the intruder fled to his pickup truck. Honerlaw fired a shot at the suspect's vehicle.

"Mike, of course answering questions alone does not make anyone anything. But it does establish a record, not only to demonstrate a candidate understands the issues, but also it makes it problematic to betray voters afterward because this leaves very little room for saying they did not understand."
 

Police use acoustic warfare to disperse crowds

"Police said they used the device last Thursday to issue prerecorded warnings to disperse when hundreds of demonstrators, including self-described anarchists, without a protest permit held a march that threatened to turn violent."

...

Putnam said those complaining about the device have probably exposed themselves to sounds nearly as loud at rock concerts, and for longer periods of time. Walczak, the ACLU attorney, isn't buying the analogy.

"People don't flee the front row of a rock concert. Why would they be fleeing here?" Walczak asked. "Because it's loud, it's painfully loud."
 

OR: The fountain statue is holding a gun
Submitted by: James A. Farmer

In response to a rather unenlightened and demeaning rebuttal to my recent letter to the editor: The statue on top of the Carter Memorial Fountain is a statue of a man holding a gun (see Sept. 24 "Plaza's pioneer statue deserves our respect"). Observers can read anything they might imagine into it, as they undoubtedly do. But I believe most will agree there is nothing inspirational about a man holding a gun. Why not a Native American holding a bow and arrow? At least it would truly say something, albeit tragic. The rebuttalist had contended they imagined a "pioneer." If it's pioneers we want on top of the fountain, then I think a statue of a sturdy young woman in a bonnet feeding her hungry, exhausted and heroic husband and children might be more appropriate. It would at least be unharmful to look at. We must acknowledge the physical reality of the thing. What has been standing there in our plaza all this time is a man with a gun. That is not OK. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

NM: National Rifle Association endorses Martin Chavez

We can’t help but harken back to one of incumbent mayor Martin Chavez’s clever statements on the stump as mayoral endorsements keep rolling in to our virtual newsroom this week. Characterizing R.J. Berry as on the right, and Richard Romero as on the left, Chavez has enjoyed saying he’s happy being “Marty in the middle.” His endorsement today by the president of the National Rifle Association, combined with an earlier endorsement this week by former Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean, drives home that point.

Mayoral assistant Angelo Roefaro’s salary nearly doubled recently after New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Office chose him as the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Upstate New York coordinator. Roefaro’s official salary from the city now will be $60,000 – though $45,000 of that will be reimbursed through the organization. He also will receive a $5,000 travel stipend from the non-profit. Roefaro said the new role would include seeking out officials in other cities around the state to educate them about the group and its advocacy platforms.
 

Gun Rights Case Could Turn On Civil War-Era Laws

A 5-4 Supreme Court decision last year did say that the U.S. Constitution protects an individual right to own a handgun. But the majority opinion never concluded that the Second Amendment applied to states; it didn't say what kind of laws beyond a flat ban are acceptable or unacceptable; it didn't even say what kind of standards lower courts should apply when evaluating anti-gun laws.

One result was to leave lower court judges scratching their heads about which laws were permissible. Another was to create what one pro-gun attorney last week dubbed an "apartheid of civil rights," where gun rights vary by state.

"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada is getting the two-faced Janus Award," gun rights expert John M. Snyder announced here today. "This recognizes Reid's attempt to have it both ways regarding the rights of law-abiding firearm owners"

A former National Rifle Association editor, Snyder is Public Affairs Director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Shotgun News last year named him the senior rights activist in Washington.

The mock award is named for the two-faced ancient Roman god Janus. "Harry has demonstrated by his outstanding hypocrisy that he is most deserving of this distinction," explained Snyder.

A national shortage on ammunition is hitting close to home. Tom Moore, owner of Frewsburg's Spectacular Sports, said he has been at the shop for 54 years and has never experienced an ammunition shortage like the current one. "I never saw anything like this," he said, adding that occasionally when a new caliber first comes out, it may be in demand at first, leaving store shelves empty of that type. Lately, however, he said, it's been tough to keep things in stock.

NRA-ILA is pleased to announce that three new pro-gun laws officially go into effect today in Arizona.

The employee protection/parking lot law requires employers to allow the lawful storage of firearm(s) in employees’ locked motor vehicles while they are at work. Employers are not allowed to ban the storage of firearms in vehicles unless they offer an alternate location to park immediately adjacent to the standard parking area.

Also effective today, concealed carry permit holders can carry a concealed firearm for self-defense while in an establishment that serves on site alcoholic beverages as long as they are not consuming alcohol. A restaurant or bar can ban possession by posting a sign next to the liquor license.

That's the question that will soon be pondered by the Missouri Supreme Court.

Missouri's highest court decided to hear the appeal of John L. Richard, a Mississippi County man who, after his wife left him in 2006, popped morphine and anti-depressants, guzzled booze, grabbed a loaded 9 mm Beretta pistol and spare clip, barricaded himself in his home and told the cops he was either going to shoot himself or make them do it for him.

Last June, the Houston Daughters of Liberty hosted a Women on Target event for new women shooters, which takes place on October 10 at the American Shooting Center in George Bush Park.

On October 10, they are following up with a sporting clays event, followed by an evening dinner and dance.

Getting women and their families involved in shooting sports is the best way to protect our civil right of self-defense.

Organizer extraordinaire Penny Uselton said: “The June 15 Women On Target clinic was so successful that we are planning to do another one for April 2010.”
 

WA: Sunday deadline looms for comments on Nickels gun ban; press laziness continues

Seattle residents, and presumably anybody who visits the city and utilizes its public parks, the Seattle Center and other public venues, still have a couple of days to comment on lame duck Mayor Greg Nickels’ proposed ban on firearms on all properties administered by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.

... This includes some 500 facilities around the city, such as pools, baseball fields and community centers. The mayor cleverly insists this isn’t really a gun ban (that’s against state statute and the state constitution) but it would be a trespass situation, where armed citizens would be asked to leave and if they do not, they could be cited or arrested for criminal trespass by Seattle police.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A retired Yale University employee who had complained about his benefits showed up at the Ivy League school with a rifle, ammunition and a knife, but his attorney said he had no ill intent.

John Petrini, 61, of New Haven, was going to a campus on high alert on Sept. 10. Two days earlier, a graduate student vanished and police were scouring the campus for clues. Her body was found Sept. 13.

Petrini was charged with breach of peace, threatening, carrying a dangerous weapon and illegally possessing a weapon in a motor vehicle. He was scheduled to appear Thursday in New Haven Superior Court.

Operation Can You Hear Us Now has declared October 17th to be a nationwide day of protests against media dishonesty.

A key protest will be at CNN headquarters; other nationwide information will be kept at this updated link.

Note:

The mainstream media wants right-thinking Americans silenced, so let's focus on both them and their advertisers.

Money is the absolute lifeblood of every news organization, so if we can shake the advertisers at the big news shops, we will be standing on the throats of the propagandists.

Do what you can where you are.

... a “dispute” erupted between the occupants of the two vehicles. A person from one vehicle fired a handgun at the other, the release said.

Interviews with witnesses and the suspect gathered by TV reporters suggest that racial slurs may have been yelled prior to the eruption of gunfire.

Edward Crawford, 22, who lives in the 900 block of W. Fifth Street, has been arraigned on a first degree murder charge. He is now in the Western Regional Jail. Crawford told WCHS-TV that the event happened quickly as the victim allegedly ran shouting at the suspect.

Sitting with Crawford in the car was his fiancée. “I was scared and frightened for our lives,” he told WCHS-TV at his arraignment. The woman will not face any charges.

Police said the 34-year-old man was still sleeping when officers arrived at 1 a.m. Sunday. Spokeswoman Crystal Nosal said the officer was charged with unlawful entry.

Police don't know why the officer, who lives in Reston, picked the woman's apartment to sleep, but investigators believe he came in through the front door.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a challenge to Chicago’s gun bans, opening the door for either a grandiose success for the gun-rights movement, or a detrimental setback. We will soon be awaiting the outcome of the hearings much like the earlier colonists awaited the decree of King George. The case is expected to decide whether the 2nd Amendment is a right that limits only the Federal government, or a right that is greater in its jurisdiction. A decision that would liken the 2nd Amendment to the right to free speech, or the right against unreasonable searches and seizures, would open the door for municipal and state ordinances to be challenged.
 

Montana Gun Suit Challenges Federal Authority

The case was filed by Quentin Rhoades of Sullivan, Tabaracci, and Rhoades in Missoula, Mont., with the support of the Second Amendment Foundation. The U.S. Justice Department, which will be defending the suit in court, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday.

...the Tenth Amendment seems to suggest that the federal government's powers are limited only to what it has been "delegated," and the U.S. Supreme Court in 1918 confirmed that the amendment "carefully reserved" some authority "to the states." That view is echoed by statements made at the time the Constitution was adopted; New Hampshire explicitly said that states kept "all powers not expressly and particularly delegated" to the federal government.

Iowa Carry, an organization devoted to preservation of Second Amendment rights, will hold a rally noon Saturday in Library Square in Estherville. A free lunch will be provided.

According to Larry Walders, Iowa Carry Emmet County coordinator, Saturday's rally is to acquaint local citizens with the concealed carry law in Iowa.

"There's 99 counties and there's 99 different policies," Walders said.

Walders said a bill will be introduced in next year's Iowa Legislature to change the law from stating that county sheriff's "may issue" to "shall issue" concealed weapons permits to applicants. Walders said the legislation will provide that permits shall be issued provided an applicant does not present a public threat.
