... "He looked around the battlefield that had been his home, and carefully raised himself out of the recliner. It wouldn't do to fall and break a hip now. Company was coming, and he had to be ready to greet them. He hoped it would be today. He had been scared of the attacking Nathaniel Victors ... But now, at the end of his life, he wasn't afraid of the thugs who had targeted him. He was only afraid that they wouldn't come."

"He had known that that they would get around to him sooner or later. He'd run his mouth too much. He was too political. He'd made his disdain for the thugs and their gang plain enough and now they were going to settle accounts. Frank Grant had met him at the pharmacy last month. The thugs had been asking about him, Frank said ..." ...

"The news is atwitter about the arrest of Tarek Mehanna for various terrorism related charges. Supposedly, one of his ambitions was to shoot up a shopping mall ..." ...

"What, I wonder, thwarted their mall-massacring ambitions? Ah--here it is:"

"The idea stalled, Loucks said, after Mehanna and the others were unable to get automatic weapons."

"Now when a mainstream media report mentions 'automatic weapons,' there's always the problem of trying to figure out whether they really mean 'automatic weapons,' ..."

"In this case, though, it doesn't really matter. Why is that? Well, according to the Brady Campaign, a semi-automatic firearm is, for all intents and purposes, about as 'lethal' as a fully automatic one." ...

"There are two ways for a politician to keep their job, do something effective or make it look like you are. When it comes to gun control, all too often it is the latter."

"The subject of gun control is a tough one for some politicians. They want to create the impression that they are 'doing something' about crime and violence but are at a loss as to what to do. ..." ...
 

Gun nuts right, armed self-defense works

"One of the lies those that push for more gun control perpetuate is that armed self-defense is ineffective. They'll try to tell you that bad guys will take your gun away from you, or that you'd just miss anyway, or that all you'd do is wound and anger an assailant."

"Fortunately, their lies have fallen on increasingly deaf ears over the last twenty years or so as concealed carry reform has swept the country. More states than ever recognize the gun rights of their citizens, and the wins are starting to pile up for the good guys." ...

The feds take a shot at guns: Government research fits liberal political conclusions

"For a decade, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been forbidden by Congress from doing research on gun-control issues. Such piddling hurdles as federal law don't matter to the Obama administration."

"With a wave of a hand, the CDC has simply redefined gun-control research so the ban no longer applies. ... 'These particular grants do not address gun control; rather they deal with the surrounding web of circumstances,' wrote [NIH] spokesman Don Ralbovsky."

"Gun-control advocates claim that banning the CDC from examining gun control amounts to a gag order on science. ... But the issue isn't about scientific inquiry. It is whether government resources should be used to promote an ideological agenda." ...

"The United States Constitution gives meaning and substance to our republic and our rights."

"The Second Amendment [is a] pretty straight-forward statement on the right to bear arms, isn’t it? Depends on one's perspective, apparently."

"Some people opine that the intent of this amendment allows only militias, such as the National Guard, to keep and bear arms. My reading is the amendment clearly states that 'the people' ... have the right to bear arms."

"Whenever a high profile or mass shooting occurs, the primary focus is often on the weapon used in commission of the crime. Many cities have a 'zero tolerance' approach to gun possession, rendering the possession of a gun by any private citizen illegal. ..." ...

"Last week, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a law that requires handgun ammunition to be treated by retailers in much the same way that cigarettes, some cold medicines and even spray paint are treated."

"As already shown in some California cities, this common sense measure will go a long way toward keeping ammunition away from gang members and felons in California, and provide law enforcement crucial leads to track down and apprehend armed criminals."

"Getting this bill passed was the top priority of our California Brady Campaign Chapters this year ..." ...

"A Peoria mother whose body was found Friday had recently tried to leave Arizona after receiving threats from her apparent slayer, but a judge denied her request, court records show."

"Two weeks before she was killed, Dawn Axsom pleaded with Judge Jose Padilla of Maricopa County Superior Court to let her leave Arizona with her son because she feared Gabriel Schwartz, the toddler's father, would harm her or their boy."

"Padilla denied the 26-year-old's request and ordered the pair to attend parental counseling together."

"Axsom's body was found in her Peoria residence Friday. Police also found the bodies of Schwartz, 28, and Lisa Braden, 56, Axsom's mother." ...

"Tennessee is urging 49 other states to come together and create a 'joint working group between the states' to combat unconstitutional federal legislation and assert state rights."

"Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen signed HJR 108, the State Sovereignty Resolution on June 23. According to the Tenth Amendment Center, the resolution created a committee to form a joint working group between the states to enumerate the abuses of authority by the federal government and seek repeal of imposed mandates."

"State Rep. Susan Lynn recently wrote a letter to the other 49 state legislatures, inviting them to join the group and warning that the role of the federal government has been 'blurred, bent and breached.'" ...

"Gun rights expert John M. Snyder met recently in Las Vegas, Nevada with conservative activists to assess the political situation in the Silver State."

"Among the conferees was former Nevada State Senator Sue Lowden, a leading contender in next year's United States senatorial contest. A high resolution image of the meeting, shown above, may be obtained on request."

"Shotgun News last year named Snyder the senior rights activist in Washington."

"While in Nevada, Snyder announced that a special award was going to Nevada's senior Senator, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. 'The two-faced Janus Award is going to Reid in recognition of his ambivalent commitment to the rights of law-abiding firearm owners," said Snyder." ...

"Saying it is in no way a panacea, but rather an important new tool to combat gun violence, Assemblyman Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, thanked Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for signing his bill, AB 962, which requires firearm dealers to fingerprint people who buy bullets."

"'Let me be very clear. Bullets are the lifeblood of guns. Guns don't kill people; bullets do,' said de Leon during a ceremonial signing Oct. 15 in Los Angeles."

"'Right now anyone can buy ammunition, even a felon straight out of prison. And that's not just true here in California but it's true in most states throughout the country. That's irrational,' said de Leon." ...

"... Lynne Roberts, who founded the Massachusetts chapter of the Second Amendment Sisters, ... wants to expand the training program to other gun clubs ... But she says her organization may cease to operate if new regulations for gun clubs are adopted."

"The regulations are being proposed by Governor Deval Patrick after an 8-year-old boy accidentally killed himself with a machine gun at a gun club event in Westfield last October." ...

"... many club members are outraged. They say the regulations will make it financially impossible to continue with events that are open to nonmembers - such as shooting competitions, gun safety classes, and special programs for women. ..." ...

"In August, a man shot two people to death on a bridge near San Francisco. At the moment of the killings, two on-duty Marin County sheriff's deputies were within 100 yards of the shooter. One was close enough to see the muzzle blast of the shotgun. The police officers, however, did not move against the culprit. ..."

"These two law-enforcement officers did what police officers tell the public to do: Don’t intervene. Get a description of the offender. Call the police. Be a good witness."

"Much debate ensued about whether the officers' behavior was appropriate, but the real tragedy is that the victims of this rampage did not have the legal opportunity to arm themselves. To them, the message was clear: Be a good victim." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A former Greenacres police officer has been charged with vehicular homicide for a February crash.

Gary Chan turned himself in Tuesday night, and he was released Wednesday on $10,000 bail.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 38-year-old Chan was investigating a car burglary Feb. 10 when he left to retrieve the victim's wallet, which was found at another crime scene. FHP says Chan was going as fast as 47 mph over the speed limit, lights and sirens going, when he crashed into a car being driven by 69-year-old Azinta Thompson. Both drivers were taken by helicopter to a Delray hospital, where Thompson later died.

Chan was terminated from the police department in August on unrelated charges.

"Jerry Ford, who owns the house where the incident occurred, also witnessed the altercation and said he thinks Martin lost his temper." ...

"In 2008 an enraged, deranged known drug dealer/crack cocaine smoker attempted a violent attack on a Central Illinois man. The FOID-carrying victim pulled his legally owned, legally carried, unloaded, disassembled, non-functioning, encased semi-automatic pistol, inserted the magazine, readied a bullet and stopped the attack abruptly." ...

"Police responded. Police rejected the gun owner's vehicular carry methods. Plus, the gun wasn't unloaded immediately after the event. Police arrested the gun owner on a questionable felony and several questionable misdemeanors. The legitimate, recordless, lawful defender was victimized twice - once by the drug-induced predator, then by police." ...

"Based on legislation and case law, the U.S. government's attitude toward increased rights for gun owners has been more favorable in recent years than ever before." ...

"But despite the seemingly national groundswell in favor of gun ownership, Johnie E. Lewis, a 73-year-old man living in public housing ... could face eviction for his desire to bear arms. Under a Housing Authority of Fernandina Beach lease agreement that tenants must sign, they agree not to display, use or possess any firearms under penalty of eviction - for now, anyway."

"Lewis, along with his attorney Steven M. Fahlgren, filed suit in September for declaratory and injunctive relief ... concerning his right to keep a gun in his home for lawful purposes." ...
