WORTH COUNTY, Ga. -- This is the deer everyone is talking about. Weighing nearly 250 pounds, 22 points, the green score of 233 and two-eighths inches. 27-year-old Fletcher Culpepper of Worth County says he almost didn't go hunting.

Culpepper sat in one deer stand most of the morning, and decided to move to his father's stand, where his brother had heard two big bucks fighting Sunday. Fletcher first spotted the huge buck as he climbed into the stand, and shot the deer just seconds after getting ready.

A Georgia hunting store is hoping a gun raffle promotion will encourage people to cast their ballots on election day. The raffle for a Glock and a Browning rifle is advertised on eight billboards around Smyrna, Ga. The promotion prompted State Sen. Vincent Fort, D-Atlanta, to file a complaint that it violates state law on providing money or gifts in exchange for voting, which is a felony.

“Vote. Win a Rifle,” the billboards say.

Jay Wallace, owner of Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna, said this is the third presidential election he has run the promotion. No purchase or proof of voting is required in order to receive a raffle ticket, Wallace said, making it perfectly legal.

A 90-year-old Greenbrae man who was shot in the head during an alleged burglary has been sued by the alleged burglar.
Samuel Cutrufelli, who was also shot during the incident, claims Jay Leone "negligently shot" him during the confrontation inside Leone's home.
Cutrufelli, 31, claims Leone caused him "great bodily injury, and other financial damage, including loss of Mr. Cutrufelli's home, and also the dissolution of Mr. Cutrufelli's marriage."
Cutrufelli shot Leone once in the face during the alleged burglary, and Leone returned fire, hitting Cutrufelli several times. Both men were hospitalized for an extended period after the gun battle.
 

TX: Diabetic Cleburne Teen Hit With Taser After Crash

A Cleburne teenager was hit with a Taser by police while he was having a medical emergency, and the incident was caught on tape. ...
The 19-year-old driver was in a hypoglycemic state. He’s diabetic. His blood sugar was dangerously low. ...
Emergency crews arrive. The officer finds out what was wrong. “I didn’t know he was freakin’ diabetic!” the officer said.

Submitter's comment: Instead of settling for $5,000, they should have gotten $50,000 -- all of it out of Officer Anonymous's salary. Then he'd remember how to recognize a "freakin' diabetic."
And why isn't this uniformed clown identified? The taxpayers who pay his salary have a right to know.

Florida Senator Don Gaetz, R-Destin, was guest speaker at the Jackson County Cattlemen’s Association banquet Tuesday night. He made some promises in his speech that had more to do with other hot topics than with cattle farming.
For instance, as the incoming senate president, Gaetz said he will do all in his power to block a repeal of the state’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law which, allows people under attack to immediately defend themselves, rather than first retreating as Florida law once demanded.

CZ USA has posted their list of discontinued products for 2013. On that list is all four of the CZ 83 SKUs they currently sell. It looks like they will no longer be importing the CZ 83. CZ USA touted the "moderate weight" of the CZ 83 as an advantage over the light polymer carry pistols of their competitors. At 28 oz it is a fair bit heavier than even other all steel carry pistols like the Walther PPK/S (22 oz).

Sales growth in guns and ammunition contributed to a strong third quarter for Sidney, Neb.-based Cabela's Inc., and firearms sales could climb further if President Obama is re-elected, CEO Tommy Millner said Thursday.

“If the president is re-elected, I would expect some surge beyond current levels, which are really good,” he said. “If Gov. Romney is elected, I still think we're going to see gun growth next year. It probably won't be at the same pace.”
 

UN First Committee Meeting: Complexity of Arms Restraint Considered in First Committee as Delegates Urge ‘Get Back to Work’ on Binding Treaty to Regulate Trade: Nothing ‘Small’ or ‘Light’ about Conventional Weapons, Says Speaker

Widespread agreement was evident today in the First Committee on the need for arms restraint, but chronic ambivalence in policies aimed at promoting exports and transfers while preventing their diversion to illicit markets and protecting national interests stirred debate on finalization of an arms trade treaty whose text was already on the table.

An arms trade treaty was nearly within the international community’s grasp, said Japan’s representative. During the four-week conference in July, he said, a common understanding about most of the elements of a future treaty had been developed, and work should soon be able to be finalized.

The evolution of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) from the “Firearms Protocol” and the “Programme of Action on Small Arms and Light Weapons” (PoA) for more than a decade continues despite the failure to reach agreement on the ATT this last July.

On October 15-19 the “Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime” was held in Vienna Austria. IAPCAR’s Julianne Versnel and Alan Gottlieb attended the meeting via the WFSA on behalf of the Second Amendment Foundation. In the past, the UN’s “Conference of Parties” has served as a bureaucratic and educational platform supporting the Firearms Protocol, the Programme of Action, and the ATT.

Campaign's focus on jobs pushes climate change, guns, gay rights, immigration to sidelines

WASHINGTON - Of the roughly 50,000 words spoken in this month's three presidential debates, none were "climate change," "global warming" or "greenhouse gas."
Housing was discussed in the first debate, but the word "foreclosure" was mentioned in none. Nor was gay marriage.

The 2012 presidential campaign, not just the debates, has focused heavily from the start on jobs, pushing other once high-profile issues to the sidelines. It dismays activists who have spent decades promoting environmental issues, gay rights, gun control and other topics, sometimes managing to lift them to the top tiers of national attention and debate.

Byline: Timothy B. Wheeler

Challenging a major political taboo, Johns Hopkins researchers contend that tighter gun control laws will save lives and reduce violence, particularly if "high-risk" people such as alcoholics and youths under age 21 are barred from buying or having firearms.

In a report being released Thursday by the Bloomberg School of Public Health, they call for broadening current state and federal prohibitions on who can own guns while also closing loopholes in the regulation of gun sales.

Lee Boyd Malvo, who terrorized the Washington, D.C. region ten years ago during the Beltway Sniper scare, is back in the news today in an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer that readers of the Seattle Times are panning.

Malvo, along with the now-executed John Allan Muhammad, stole a rifle from Tacoma’s Bull’s Eye Shooter Supply in 2002 and subsequently killed 10 people in the D.C. area. Muhammad was also linked to the slaying of Keenya Cook in Tacoma that year, and a murder in Alabama. There were also links to more than 20 other shootings.

ATF special agent and whistleblower who made headlines when he was fired unceremoniously in the parking lot of a Denny’s restaurant has won a stay of termination, a member of the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board in Washington, D.C., decided Tuesday. Mark A.

CSGV demonizes militias, endorses government extortion

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence was so offended by the Supreme Court's Heller decision, in which the Court ruled that the right to possess firearms is not contingent upon membership in a militia, that this ruling is the very first entry in their "Insurrectionism Timeline." In other words, they want militias to be the only entities with a Constitutionally protected right to possess firearms.
One might think, then, that CSGV would approve of concerned citizens banding together to assist an overwhelmed law enforcement agency in restoring order to a sprawling, crime ridden, rural county. Um--not quite….
 

Gun control: Value your rights

I have been involved with firearms for many years and even before I owned my first firearm was interested in the right to firearm ownership and why it was so important. A very, very neglected and little known subject with so many myths, misconceptions and agendas, that the abortion issue is simple by comparison.

Yet to me the whole concept is very simple. It is only when one accepts gun control as valid or incorrectly believes that government has the ability or authority to infringe our natural rights to liberty, freedom safety and happiness that any problem or doubt arises.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Justice is on a road trip as the Michigan Supreme Court hears a case in Grand Rapids.

The court occasionally meets around the state to hear cases and give the public a glimpse without having to travel to Lansing. As many as 200 high school students are expected Thursday at Gerald R. Ford Museum.

The Supreme Court is handling a case from Muskegon County. The issue is whether Kurtis Minch could assign a large collection of firearms to his mother after he pleaded guilty to illegally possessing a sawed-off shotgun. The prosecutor didn't request to have the weapons seized.

No Lawyers, Only Guns and Money–John Richardson

This has been a busy week for Alan Gura. He has had not one but two oral arguments on back to back days before the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. Moreover, both cases involve gun rights.

The first case, Lane v. Holder, is a challenge to the Gun Control Act of 1968's ban on the sales of handguns to non-residents of a state. The case was filed in 2011 and challenged the law on behalf of Michelle Lane, a resident of the District of Columbia, who had purchased two handguns in Virginia and could not pick them up there. At the time of the original filing, there was no active FFL in DC. The Second Amendment Foundation, Amanda Welling, and Matthew Welling are also plaintiffs in this case.

By Jonathan Stempel

(Reuters) - The United States may ban federally licensed firearms dealers from selling handguns to people under age 21, an appeals court ruled on Thursday, in a defeat for the National Rifle Association.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Houston rejected the NRA's argument that 18- to 20-year-olds had a right to buy the guns under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as the equal protection clause of the Fifth Amendment.
