"Unless you are an active member of the military or an important government official, the single most important thing you can do for your country this year is vote."

"There is an active movement afoot to strip you of your rights. All of them. And if the anti-gunners get just a smidgen more power than those who support the Second Amendment, they will take everything they can get in the next two years and beyond. ..."

"You and I were fortunate enough to grow up in the real America. We know what the Second Amendment is really about. We know that the real U.S. is about standing tall, working hard, and being the best we can be. But we've been infiltrated from within by an enemy that wants to break our back and turn everything that we stand for on its head." ...
 

School Shootings Spark Gun-Control Debate

"The increased call for stricter gun control measures was inevitable after one of the deadliest school shooting sprees swept across the country earlier this month. Gun control, or civilian disarmament, advocates are gearing up to bring stricter disarmament measures to the attention of local, state and federal government."

"The solution to the increased school violence is not to disarm the American public, thereby stripping millions of their Second Amendment protection to the God-given right of self-defense, but to address the reasons why, as a society, we are seeing more and more deadly outbursts. The guns are not committing the crime – people are!" ...
 

Forum: Is it guns or evil?

"The conventional wisdom on the 'Amish shootings' by Charles Carl Roberts Roberts and other recent school violence maintains that the 'real' problem is just too many guns. Many believe that this horrible crime could have been prevented by stricter gun-control laws. One hundred big-city mayors, including New York's Michael Bloomberg and Boston's Thomas Menino, have formed a coalition to get illegal guns off the streets of their cities where violent crime is on the rise. The mayors want to increase gun control and impose stiffer penalties on illegal weapons traffickers."

"Students of gun-control's effect on violent crime differ with the mayors' premise, however. ..." ...

"Regular readers of this website have seen a lot of material regarding a private business's choice to prohibit licensed patrons from carrying a handgun for self-defense. ... They imply that you’re not trusted to be safe and responsible with your concealed handgun even though millions of law-abiding licensees live, work, and shop in forty-eight states without incident."

"This last implication is perhaps the most insulting. The corporate policy of Costco, a large volume and wholesale retailer, is the latest to be brought to the attention of Ohioans For Concealed Carry. We have received several emails from people all over the country explaining their personal attempts to persuade Costco Corporate Management to adopt a more logical and tolerant policy. ..." ...

"The infamous Columbine shootings in 1999 were carried out by two evil young men. ... The nation responded by crying out for more gun control, which has done nothing to stop such violence."

"This month, in the wake of heinous crimes including sexual assault and murder of our children by criminals with guns, the nation has reacted differently. While the rabid anti-self defense nuts regurgitate their same old ilk, most have realized their 'solutions' can do nothing to defend innocent life from evil men. As a country, we don't want slick press releases, we want real solutions. We demand real answers to combat real dangers. We are finally insisting that sensible action be taken to insure our children are safe at school." ...

"Quavale Finnell's 15th birthday is Thursday."

"He didn't make it."

"Instead, his body landed in the Hamilton County morgue after he was shot before dawn Monday by a homeowner as the teen apparently tried to steal the man's car on Odin Avenue." ...

"Police said the bullet hit him in the chest, just under his left arm." ...

"When Hall came back outside, he saw someone driving away in the gray Ford Taurus, police said. Hall fired at the fleeing car." ...

Submitter's Note: Very nice shot! I'm sure Deters will try to prosecute the guy for protecting his property.

"The man who shot and killed 14-year-old Quavale Finnell early Monday told police he was trying to stop the teen from stealing his car."

"But protecting his property might not be enough to spare him criminal charges."

"Police and prosecutors will spend the next several days trying to determine whether Bennie D. Hall Jr. should be charged with a crime for shooting at Finnell as he drove off in his 1994 Ford Taurus."

"Ohio law allows people to protect themselves and their property, but the use of deadly force is permitted only when someone is defending his home or believes he is about to be killed or seriously hurt." ...

"This latest incident involved the owner of a Winton Place convenience store, who fired on an alleged thief after he was attacked."

This incident came on the heels of a fatal shooting of a 14 year old boy who was trying to steal a car in Kennedy Heights on Monday."

"One legal expert believes a jury would have hard time convicting either one." ...

"Police ended a nearly two-hour standoff by shooting to death a man who entered a bread store in this town east of Houston and stabbed his estranged wife to death Monday, a Houston police spokeswoman said. The woman worked at the store." ...

"Officers had been dispatched to the store several times on domestic dispute calls, Jacinto Police Chief Joe Ayala said. He said that as recently as last month, Rafi had violated a restraining order by visiting his wife." ...

KABA Note: Sarah Brady would be proud; Ms. Rafi didn't "escalate the violence" by having her own gun, she called 9-1-1 and died.

"The justices without comment agreed to hear arguments in the Pima County Superior Court case from Tucson in which David Garcia is charged with first-degree murder in the 2004 shooting death of Alexis Samaniego."

"Two of the nation's leading gun rights organizations have endorsed 8th District Rep. John Hostettler, R-Ind., for re-election."

"Hostettler, who is being challenged by Democrat Brad Ellsworth, received the National Rifle Association and the Gun Owners of America endorsements at a 4:30 p.m. news conference attended by about 50 supporters outside Rajo's Guns on West Franklin Street."

"'There is no single-most important (Bill of Rights) preserving tool in our Constitution than for the rights of American citizens to keep and bear arms,' Hostettler said. 'The Second Amendment gives teeth to the Bill of Rights, and it creates the backdrop by which we can maintain all other civil liberties.'" ...

"Gun owners are fortunate to have Rep. Bubp returning once again to the Statehouse next session. Danny has consistently voted for the gun owners. He co-sponsored HB 347, the concealed carry fix it Bill which is a subject near and dear to him. He understands the importance of getting car carry corrected, and the importance of protecting the rights of the gun owners of the state.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Congressman Don Sherwood has done more for the 10th Congressional District in Pennsylvania than anyone who has represented us. He has supported farming and manufacturing, and he has been strong on national defense.

Don Sherwood is pro-life, and he is not afraid to say so. His opponent, Chris Carney, needs to check the polls to see where he stands.

Sherwood supports our constitutional right to own firearms. His opponent, on the other hand, says he supports the Second Amendment, but he has been supported by the anti-gun movement.

Vote Don Sherwood.

"In public office, most politicians rely on a healthy ego and a sense of self-importance to survive, and many are generally loath to admit their shortcomings."

"But there are exceptions, including Long Island's Carolyn McCarthy." ...

"Although the gun control issue propelled McCarthy, a fifth-term lawmaker, into politics, it is seldom mentioned on Capitol Hill these days. The GOP leadership is generally hostile to gun control legislation, and many Democrats see it as a liability that hurts the party with Southern and rural voters." ...

"My friends and neighbors are talking and showing support for Dan Thackaberry running for District 17. I was planning to vote for him until I received this month’s issue of the American Rifleman."

"The National Rifle Association does a candidate screening each election. It gives a report of how a candidate votes, shows support, or lack of for the Second Amendment and gun ownership."

"I was totally shocked when I read Dan Thackaberry's name and rating. He received an F! I looked for what an F rating meant and I quote: 'True enemy of gun owners' rights. A vehement anti-gun candidate who always opposes gun owners rights and/or activity, leads anti-gun legislative efforts, or sponsors anti-gun legislation.'" ...

"The National Rifle Association is backing both the Democratic and Republican candidates in the race for the state House of Representatives in District 56."

"Republican John Manor and Democrat Kate Ebli are running for the seat. The gun issue came into sharper focus recently when the National Rifle Association (NRA), previously thought to have endorsed Mr. Manor, sent an e-mail to its members stating that wasn't the case."

"The e-mail to NRA members in the District 56 area read: 'You may have recently received information regarding an endorsement in your district, which was incorrect. NRA-PVF ... has not made any endorsement in State House District 56. Both candidates have received an 'A' rating from NRA-PVF. ...'" ...

"His office planned to advise county commissioners about the matter on Tuesday." ...

"Stafford’s office reviewed the county’s policy after a resident complained about seeing one of the signs while using a county park." ...

Submitter's note: I love the picture, making it look like carrying concealed is the same as having a gun in hand.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. — Alexis de Tocqueville
