UT: Packing heat, no apologies

For Clachelle Jensen, preparing to leave the house with her two children goes something like this: Baby wipes? Check. Extra diapers? Check. Glock pistol? Check.

"I just feel safer when I have my gun on my hip," said Jensen..."There's so many lunatics and crazies out there, you never know when something's going to happen."

The petite brunette's not shy about showing off her weapon, either. The Glock has a semipermanent home on her belt.

Jensen packed her pistol to the Red Robin in Provo Saturday, where she met up with about a dozen other unabashedly armed Utahns.

They looked imposing, walking in together, loaded pistols at their sides.

"We're not gangsters.... We are normal people. We just happen to carry guns."

A customer browses the gun case at Grandpa's Pawn & Gun in Longmont earlier this month, looking at handguns. In Boulder County, about one of every 193 people has a permit to carry a concealed handgun.

Whether tucked inside waistbands, slipped in jacket pockets or holstered around ankles, chances are most handguns being carried around Boulder County go unnoticed.

"You wouldn't know I'm carrying," said 46-year-old Longmont resident Rod Brandenburg, who occasionally packs a fully loaded .45-caliber Heckler & Koch pistol.
 

School Shootings, Part III: The Indecency of College Administrators

In previous editions of Good For The Country, I mentioned how wrongful death lawsuits may play an important role in reclaiming the sovereignty of the adult students murdered on a campus which had no power to stop a shooter and which frustrates the target from acting in self-defense. This would serve the sovereignty of all. Yes, adult students submit to the rules of the campus or go elsewhere, I know, but this involves a reasonable expectation of a high degree of trust that the administration not only has student interests at heart, but also knows what in the world they are doing. Ignoring student input on a right is not fulfilling this.

The defense of a nation ultimately depends on the wherewithal and actions of that nation’s citizens. The true measure of how secure a nation is against attacks of all sorts is not the number of federal agents employed or size of its intelligence agencies, but by how well those at every level of power and authority recognize current and emerging threats and prepare to deal with them.

WKU student, Nathan Hayes, plans to work with the Kentucky Coalition to Carry Concealed to change state laws.
Currently, people on Western's campus cannot carry a concealed weapon.

Hayes acknowledges some students don't want that to change, but he thinks there's a difference between feeling safe and being safe.

The year 2006 will forever be known in police circles as the year of Sean Bell and 50 shots. The reality, though, is that by year's end, the NYPD showed itself to be more restrained in the use of deadly force, with less shots fired by police officers than in 2005 and more of their shots striking the intended targets. "Firing dozens of shots always raises questions, but you never want a situation where you have an innocent bystander shot," says one source, a police supervisor with a background in training at the Police Academy. "Just from a public relations standpoint, it's a worst-case scenario, so anytime those numbers go down, it's a big sigh of relief."

The ATF has been scrutinizing and criticizing us over a .4% error rate that they deem to be willful, here is our now former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales dodging questions on the ATF's record keeping on April 6, 2006 at a House Judiciary Committee Hearing:

"In 1998, an IG report found that the ATF contract employees had improperly destroyed NFA records, and ATF employees had not followed proper procedures during the registration. This bureaucratic mess has left many of my constituents with potentially illegal guns solely because of ATF mistakes."

"...The law is perfectly well settled that the first 10 amendments to the constitution, commonly known as the 'Bill of Rights,' were not intended to lay down any novel principles of government, but simply to embody certain guaranties and immunities which we had inherited from our English ancestors. . . In incorporating these principles into the fundamental law . . . which continued to be recognized as if they had been formally expressed. Thus, the freedom of speech and of the press ( article 1) does not permit the publication of libels, blasphemous or indecent articles, or other publications injurious to public morals or private reputation; the right of the people to keep and bear arms (article 2)..."

"...The privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States, as distinguished from the privileges and immunities of citizens of the states, are indeed protected by it; but those are privileges and immunities arising out of the nature and essential character of the national government, and granted or secured by the Constitution of the United States...."

"...however, that as all citizens capable of bearing arms constitute the reserved military force of the national government the states could not prohibit the people from keeping and bearing arms, so as to deprive the United States of their rightful resource for maintaining the public security, and disable the people from performing their duty to the general government..."

Self-Protection measures to consider:
· Equip your house with an alarm system. They are great deterrents to many types of crime including ones of personal intrusion.
· Make sure you have good, deeply set, dead bolt door locks.
· Consider buying a dog. Dogs can be extremely effective for our security and safety.
· Consider utilizing self-defense tools such as civilian Taser’s [sic], pepper spray or a firearm.
 

Japan: 'Scuse Me While I Kiss Disguise

A clothing designer has developed folding fabric contraptions that can turn a normal outfit into a giant facade or even a four-sided replica of a Coke machine. The presto-chango disguise is one of many clever deceptions designed to trick would-be thieves and attackers in the night. (See also backpack/ticket machine and manhole cover/purse.) The products aim to cash in on the public’s rising fears of crime, even though the actual numbers are dropping. Sounds familiar.

"...If the Fifth Amendment confers its rights on all the world except Americans engaged in defending it, the same must be true of the companion civil-rights Amendments, for none of them is limited by its express terms, territorially or as to persons. Such a construction would mean that during military occupation irreconcilable enemy elements, guerrilla fighters, and "werewolves" could require the American Judiciary to assure them freedoms of speech, press, and assembly as in the First Amendment, right to bear arms as in the Second, security against "unreasonable" searches and seizures as in the Fourth, as well as rights to jury trial..."

Deftly, Ms. Tsukioka, a 29-year-old experimental fashion designer, lifted a flap on her skirt to reveal a large sheet of cloth printed in bright red with a soft drink logo partly visible. By holding the sheet open and stepping to the side of the road, she showed how a woman walking alone could elude pursuers — by disguising herself as a vending machine.

College students here in the Tri-State and across the nation rally for their safety this week.

They want to carry guns on campus. To make their point, many students plan to wear empty holsters all week.

Students with concealed carry permits want to be allowed to carry their guns on campus. Using the Virginia Tech massacre as an example, they say students who met the requirements to carry a concealed weapon could have changed the outcome that day.

Some OSU students will wear empty gun holsters this week to protest a state law and campus policy that prevent people with a concealed carry license from carrying their handguns to class.

Their protest will be part of the nationwide Empty Holster Protest organized, sponsored by Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, which argues that campus police and university warning systems aren’t adequate protection.

So what's the solution? There is no cure-all because determined criminals can always find ways. But eliminating the no-carry law on school property could drastically reduce the number of these incidents. In fact, every entrance should have a sign to the effect, "Only licensed firearms on school property."

Most criminals are looking for a shooting gallery, not a firefight.

High school English teacher Shirley Katz insists she needs to take her pistol with her to work because she fears her ex-husband could show up and try to harm her. She's also worried about a Columbine-style attack.

But Katz's district has barred teachers from bringing guns to school, so she is challenging the ban as unlawful, since Oregon is among states that allow people with a permit to carry concealed weapons into public buildings.

Nathaniel Sheetz doesn't care if you notice the empty gun holster strapped to his right hip this week.

That's the point, he said.

"People who carry concealed weapons go about their daily lives just like anyone else would,"

Sheetz (graduate-industrial engineering) said. "We are trying to show people that just because we might be carrying weapons, that wouldn't impact how we go about our business."

He wants a small, fiscally responsible government. He wants to get the government out of manipulating your healthcare. He supports your right to bear arms. He has been referred to as the founding father of our time.
John McCain once said, before he vied for president, that this man is the most honest man in Washington. The man I am speaking of is Ron Paul. If you want your country back, then consider Ron Paul for president.
Let freedom ring, as it did in 1787.

What kind of care and support are we showing her, other staff members — and above all, the students — when a teacher is allowed to continue working under such duress? Where is the accountability of that teacher, administration and union?
