"UT appeals attack decision

"School had no duty to protect student who was disabled, lawyer says"
"Read the story. it is sickening what was done to a vibrant young woman who had such potential."

"OK, so if the school won't protect people on their premises, how about if they protect themselves?"

"No, sorry:"

"The university is committed to maintaining the safety and security of all persons on university property and during university activities and to maintain a safe and healthful working environment. Specific prohibited activities include:"

"Possession of firearms, explosives, or other lethal materials on university property or during university activities ..." ...

"A popular bumper sticker used to say that 'if guns causes crime, matches causes arson.' It may sound like a bad argument but there's a lot of truth to it. How can an inanimate object cause so much harm all by it self? It doesn't. There’s a much needed ingredient for all that and that’s the people factor."

"... The attitudes toward the Second Amendment and other socio-political issues are a good example of infringements on our Constitutional freedoms. Let's take a look at people and firearms."

"There’s nothing funny about facing an armed criminal, or living in a dangerous neighbourhood. Travis Purser detailed that back in December 2, 2002 in Los Angeles Business Journal with respect of South LA. ..." ...

"It's either an enormous bald-faced lie, or it's ignorance at its worst. But then again, whether it's deception or just plain ignorance... either scenario is found quite commonly on Capitol Hill."

"Some senate offices are telling people the Leahy-Schumer bill is only a bill about 'school safety' and not a bill about disarming veterans."

"'This is not a Veterans Disarmament Act,' some offices have told GOA staff. 'The bill doesn't say anything about veterans.' And one particular office -- that of Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah -- is selectively quoting provisions in the bill to justify his support for the Veterans Disarmament Act." ...

"USAToday ran a story recently about the declining number of hunters in the United States ('American Hunter is a vanishing breed'). This is indeed a sad statistic that has been covered by several journals across the country."

"Rob Sexton of the US Sportsmen Alliance is quoted in the article noting that hunters pay the bill for conservation. That is true across the country. It is true in Ohio where the Division of Wildlife is almost totally funded by the sale of hunting/fishing/trapping licenses and other permits, such as deer and turkey tags. What isn’t funded through license sales is funded through the Pittman-Robertson federal excise tax on outdoor sporting equipment, firearms and ammo. ..." ...

"Leave it to the wordsmiths at the Brady Center to get too cute by half."

"In a series of exchanges today between some gun bloggers and the Brady Center’s mouthpiece, Peter Hamm, Hamm threatened to shoot one of the bloggers."

"It all started when the blogosphere criticized Hamm's suggestion that students who '…don't like the fact that you can't have a gun on your college campus' should 'Drop out of school.' (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,304806,00.html). One would think that quote would be the most ridiculous one of the entire exchange. Not so."

"After some light-hearted tongue-in-cheek back and forth banter, Hamm took offense to a blogger who called him 'Petey.' Hamm replied, 'Don't call me Petey. Or I'll have to shoot you.'" ...

"Earlier this year, Virginia's Roanoke Times newspaper came under intense scrutiny and near-universal condemnation after its editors made the irresponsible and dangerous choice to post a searchable database of Virginia’s Right-to-Carry permit holders on its website. In doing so, the paper provided anyone with access to the internet (including criminals) the name, home address, and permit issuance and expiration date of more than 135,000 Virginia permit holders." ...

"Now, after igniting and enduring that firestorm of criticism, the Roanoke Times is once again up to its anti-gun antics." ...

"Cleveland State University Junior Joe Rodriguez is attracting attention around campus with his holster."

"Some students wore empty holsters on campus this week to support carrying concealed handguns on campus."

"The demonstration was a national event organized by the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus from Monday to Friday."

"While the holsters did not violate any state laws, the holsters could send mixed messages to other students and faculty, said Capt. Jeff Holcomb, spokesman for the University Police Department."

"Deans were notified of the demonstration by e-mail ... said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman."

"'We wanted the faculty to know in case it was in the classroom,' he said. 'There have been lots of protests and demonstrations, and we can't send out an announcement for all of them all of the time.'" ...

"Students may have noticed some of their peers wearing empty gun holsters around campus. While this choice in attire may seem bizarre, these students are participating in a weeklong national peaceful protest of state and university policies banning concealed firearms from campus."

"We unequivocally support these protesters' right to express their opinions peacefully ... But UK should not change its firearms policy."

"UK is currently a deadly-weapons-free campus, a fact that UK's Students for Concealed Carry on Campus hopes to change. Students at Western Kentucky University, Eastern Kentucky University and Northern Kentucky University, along with local gun shops, are also participating in this event ..." ...

"UNIVERSITY administrators, parents, and law enforcement agencies all know that alcohol, drugs, and college students are a combustible combination. It makes no sense, therefore, to add guns to a mix that already often proves too much for young adults to handle."

"But that's exactly what Students for Concealed Carry on Campus wants to do. The group has organized a protest at Ohio State University and other college campuses across the country to point out the purported unfairness of students not being able to attend classes packing heat."

"At OSU, Miami University, the University of Cincinnati, and elsewhere, students planned to wear empty holsters to class this week to protest the state ban on concealed weapons on campus." ...

"Mr. Huckabee attributes his support to the fact he is a 'hardworking, consistent conservative with some authenticity about those convictions.'

"For anyone who has seen the 'Ron Paul' signs and wonders about his 'REVOLUTION,' Jim Palisano has some answers."

"The Springfield insurance man says the signs show growing support for the Texas congressman making a bid for the Republican presidential nomination."

"But there's more than politics involved among Paul supporters, he said."

"'This is a social movement,' Palisano said. 'It's not just here in the States, it's all over the world. People are tired of big government and all the intrusiveness. We just want to enjoy our lives.'" ...

"Paul also upholds the Second Amendment. He also voices concern that big banking controls too much of the economy. And he wants the income tax eliminated." ...

"...he appeared on the streets of the city in company with two white men, O'Rourke and Bouchillon, associates of Williams in the labor union, who were armed with shot guns..."

"...This was emphasized by the fact that while the district judge did not permit evidence of the threatening language used by O'Rourke and Bouchillon to go to the jury, he charged them that a citizen carrying arms publicly on the street committed no offense and was not subject to arrest..."

"...such arming, was not, in fact, in necessary self- defense. Such we understand to be the meaning of the charge. In our opinion, the court erred in so charging the jury. If the accused was justified in the eye of the law in arming himself for self-defense, and if, without seeking, but on meeting, his adversary, on a subsequent occasion, he killed him, not in necessary self-defense, then his crime was that of manslaughter or murder, as the circumstances, on the occasion of the killing, made it the one or the other. If guilty of manslaughter, looking alone at those circumstances, he could not be found guilty of murder by reason of his having previously armed himself solely for self- defense..."

Todays World Net Daily story reports that:

An ATF inspector, Herbert Blount, told Savage that when the agency moved to a new building, officials "lost/misplaced" records for more than 500 businesses and replacements were being sought.

Somehow my .4% error rate doesn't seem so bad, however the which was questioned about it's own record keeping before now seems WILLFUL. I wonder if they finally find those lost records if they will be in PERFECT ALPHABETICAL order as they cited us for.

"The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been given a rebuke by Congress for its aggressive attacks on firearms dealers who may have paperwork errors in their record-keeping."

"The citation in the 2008 Appropriations Bill was pointed out by Ryan Horsley, who manages the historic Red's Trading Post in Twin Falls, Idaho, and blogs about 2nd Amendment issues."

"As WND has reported, his company is in a court fight now with the federal agency over paperwork errors that largely involved insignificant issues, such as a missing poster or a purchaser failing to provide a county of residence to accompany and street and city address." ...

"Here is yet ANOTHER attestation to the assertion that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE/ATF) is in fact willfully subverting the desires of Congress, making it a rogue agency."

"... the 2008 Appropriations Bill, via the Committee on Appropriations, directs the ATF to make the following changes:"

"The Committee has heard reports that ATF has pursued license revocations and denials against firearms dealers based on violations that cansist largely of record keeping errors of various types that are unlikely to impede tracing investigations or prosecution of individuals who use firearms in crime. The Committee encourages ATF to consider lesser gradation of sanctions for recordkeeping errors. {So do it, damn it!}"

"Elementary school principal Yvette Hayes will never forget the night of July 13, 2007. She was pregnant at the time and believes police jeopardized the life of her unborn child."

"When Hayes was pulled over in the Kansas City suburb of Independence, Mo., on Interstate 70, she thought it was a routine stop. 'I'm thinking they'd ask for my driver's license,' she said."

"Instead, police drew guns on the five months' pregnant mother — whose two children were in the back seat of the car — and told her to lie on the ground."

"'Get your hands up,' one officer shouted while another ordered her to 'go down on to your belly. Arms out to your side! Palms up, palms up!'"

"Shocked and sobbing, all Hayes could say was, 'I'm pregnant.'" ...

"You hear his voice when you call his department: 'This is Chief William Kennedy, and thank you for calling the Sea Isle City Police.'"

"But Cape May County's prosecutor confirms to NBC 10 that Sea Isle City Police Chief William Kennedy is the subject of an internal affairs investigation. The prosecutor wouldn't, however, talk about the focus of that investigation."

"NBC 10 has also learned a judge Wednesday issued a temporary restraining order against Kennedy following a domestic violence complaint made by his wife."

"In response, the prosecutor ordered Kennedy to turn over all of his weapons, which he did. That's standard procedure when a police officer is involved in a domestic violence allegation." ...

"There may be another state that would take nearly 10,000 acres of wild, natural land that was donated for protection of wildlife and public enjoyment and sell it off to a private bidder rather than turn it over to the National Park Service."

"That state would be the only one in the union that could be half as much fun to cover as Texas."

"Actually, Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson would be willing to indulge Big Bend National Park's interest in annexing the adjacent 9,200-acre Christmas Mountains."

"All it would take is an act of Congress."

"Not to authorize the relatively piddling purchase price for which the rugged land is likely to go."

"To authorize guns." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. — St. George Tucker, in his edition of 'Blackstone's Commentaries,' 1:300 (1803).
