IA: Under the gun

Gun sales have shot through the roof as the presidential election looms.

Fears of tighter control were mutual Saturday among shoppers at the Gun & Knife Show, which ends today at the National Cattle Congress' McElroy Auditorium. It offers a buffet of rare guns and hard-to-find accessories.

According to the Associated Press, Republican candidate John McCain supports background checks for buyers at gun shows and has his name on a law restricting special-interest group advertising, two positions strongly opposed by the National Rifle Association. Democratic challenger Barack Obama has been accused of wanting to put the firearms industry out of business.

Legally speaking, there is not that much occurring post-Heller. The New York Times carried an article where two GOP Darling Judges [Richard Posner and J. Harvie Wilkinson, III] attacked Justice Scalia for his Heller opinion. In defense of Scalia came, came among others Sanford Levinson of the University of Texas School of Law. In addition, Bob Levy got in some shots at a blog on the New Republic’s website.

In an interview, Professor Levinson said, “The result in Heller is eminently respectable.” But he added that he understood why some conservatives were upset. “People say the Roe court was too interventionist,” he said. “So is the Heller court from that perspective.”

A 23-year-old Longview man was stabbed seven times Friday night in what police believe was an act of self-defense in the Abernathy Creek area, about 15 miles west of Longview.

According to several witnesses, Samuel Bradley, 25, was attempting to leave a party when a group of 12 to 20 people surrounded his vehicle, broke windows and attempted to attack him, said Charlie Rosenzweig, chief criminal deputy for the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office.

During the melee, Bradley stabbed Longview resident Dennis Childers, 23, seven times in the neck and upper body, Rosenzweig said.

We all know that what a candidate says during a campaign is not necessarily what they will do in office. What we can do is look at a candidate’s past and see what they have done and it is fair to say they will carry that on.

Barack Obama says he is for upholding the Second Amendment, but his past does not prove that out. Obama voted to ban hundreds of rifles and shotguns commonly used for hunting and sport shooting, Illinois Senate, SB 1195, 3/13/03. Obama endorsed a ban on all handguns, Independent Voters of Illinois/Independent Precinct Organization general candidate questionnaire, 9/9/96 Politico, 03/31/08.

Dr. Phil has often said, “The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.” Let’s take a look at some of Obama’s past behavior: Chicago Defender, 12/13/99, supported increasing taxes on firearms and ammunition by 500%; Illinois Senate, SB 2165, 3/25/04, voted to allow prosecution for use of a firearm in self defense in their own home; Debate #3 vs Alan Keys, 10/21/04, supported banning rifles and shotguns used in hunting and sport; S 397, vote 219, 7/29/05, to allow frivolous lawsuits to wipe out the firearm business; And, on the same bill, vote 217, to ban nearly all rifle ammunition.
 

VA: Let's examine America's record on guns

Letter-writer Greg Harrod says we need to evaluate Barack Obama's record concerning gun-control ["Watch out if Dems gain total control" Oct. 15].

Perhaps we should.

Sen. Obama's record shows that he knows how to change things for the better in America.

Evaluate America's record. America has very loose laws dealing with gun control. In 2005, more than 10,000 people were killed with firearms in our country.

These are ugly numbers, but Mr. Harrod claims that Sen. Obama's attempts to limit firearms are uglier.

Examine Canada's record. Canada has very strict laws governing gun control. Approximately 200 people were killed with firearms in Canada in 2005.

Pistol permits are an emotional and controversial issue in New York State as well as across the nation so it’s not surprising that Rensselaer County Judge Patrick McGrath reached out to holders of pistol permits in his race for the Supreme Court, saying that he’s not going to abandon them should he be elected to the higher post. And his opponent isn’t happy that McGrath did so.

After Moody's threatened to downgrade the New York Times Company's debt to junk status Thursday, Standard & Poors went ahead and actually made such a move, bringing to reality a development foretold fully two months ago by Bloomberg. The Times Company is only now considering reducing its outsized dividend to shareholders, including most prominently to the Sulzberger family that controls the company. Having failed one test, involving credit, the Sulzbergers now face another, involving their hold on arguably the most important journalism franchise in the country.
The Times has $46 million in cash and about ten times that much debt, just counting what's due over the next two years.

He's been victimized twice: first by the habitually reckless driver who rear-ended his pickup in rural Noble County on April 27, 2006, and again by overzealous authorities who prosecuted the wrong man.

But to those same county and state officials, it isn't that simple at all. Grimes may not be legally guilty of misusing a deadly weapon, they say - but that doesn't make him fit to carry one.

He had been declared “not a proper person to be licensed to carry a handgun.”

But how could Grimes - who was licensed to carry a gun for 28 years before the accident - be punished after having been declared innocent of a crime?

Ray Schoenke was known as fearless on the football field, a 6-3, 246-pound offensive tackle for the Washington Redskins who managed to hold his own for a dozen years against much larger defensive ends. The Hawaii-born sportsman has now tackled America's most potent gun group. The president of the American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA), Schoenke is an avid bird hunter, shooter and conservationist who owns a 300-acre hunting farm on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Schoenke and the AHSA have been roundly criticized by the National Rifle Association for, among other things, campaigning for Barack Obama and having friends and supporters who aren't fervent gun proponents.
 

Credible Deterrence & the Logistics of Liberty

What did the Founders intend with the Second Amendment? Liberals aside, gunnies would all agree that their purpose was to codify the people's natural right to arms. As men who had been compelled to fight for independence by the British seizure of their arms, it was natural for them to ensure that the people of future generations be enabled to maintain the tools necessary to repel tyranny. But I think their purpose was not only to set up the preconditions to resist tyranny when it appeared, but also to deter it by providing future would-be tyrants with a credible deterrent that would discourage them from making the attempt to begin with. Others think so too.

In his race for state Supreme Court, Judge Patrick McGrath sent letters this week to thousands of pistol permit holders saying he will not abandon them should he win higher office. McGrath, who has served on the Rensselaer County Court bench for the past 14 years, addressed the letter to "Dear Fellow Pistol Permit Holder" and said he has signed more than 20,000 permits and amendments to permits since 1994. He has had the sole responsibility for pistol permits in Rensselaer County. The holder of a permit for nine years, the judge wrote in bold letters, "My pistol permit is very important to me as I know yours is to you."

One of the most amazing things to me about the present presidential campaign (which has been full of the amazing and improbable) is how historical amnesiacs like Barak Obama and his followers can speak of "The Lightworker" as Abraham Lincoln reincarnated without apparent irony.

How is it that these idiots can claim the mantle of Lincoln without irony when Lincoln's first imprint upon the history of the United States was to sunder it into disastrous civil war? Americans were heaped in bloody windrows in the hundreds of thousands upon hundreds of thousands, and Obama and Company want you to believe that they will do again what Abe Lincoln did then. This is a GOOD thing?

A gang of rogue cops clobbered a Brooklyn man they saw smoking a joint, then sodomized him with a walkie-talkie antenna during a broad-daylight attack in a subway station, law-enforcement sources and the victim's lawyer said yesterday.

The alleged attack, reminiscent of the 1997 police assault on Abner Louima, put Michael Mineo, 24, in Brookdale Hospital for four days.

"This is one of the most horrendous and grievous cases I've ever seen," said Mineo's lawyer, Stephen Jackson, who will file a notice of claim against the city next week.

Oh, this is really not what you want to hear if you are a fan of the newspapers, or journalism as a whole, or especially if you're an investor in the NYT Co.: In the wake of shitty third-quarter earnings, the ratings service Moody's is warning that it may downgrade the company's debt to junk status. It's currently at Baa3, the lowest rating before junk.

COMMENT: Moody's is way behind the curve. We downgraded the New York Times to junk status years ago.

CT: Conviction in shooting barrage overturned

It was dark. A gang of men, dressed like thugs, carrying guns, were inside.

John Bell, a 55-year-old truck driver from Stratford, thought Buzz's Mobil Station on Bridgeport's East Main Street, where he worked a second job, was being robbed. So he pulled his gun.

More than 17 shots were fired.

And Bell, who was shot twice, was convicted last summer by a federal court jury of attempting to kill Trumbull Police Detective Scott Murray, a member of the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, when he fired on Murray, missing both his shots.

Submitter's note: Justice is served. When confronted by the police that look like thugs and act like thugs, then a permit holder has a right to fire in self defense. Thank God for this judge's common sense. Common sense is a beautiful thing and it is certainly lacking today in law enforcement as well as all other parts of our so called "government".
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The "assault weapon" ban didn't stop the [World Trade Center/Pentagon] terrorists, Brady checks didn't stop them, the high capacity magazine ban didn't. Right to Carry would have. If it had saved only one tower and the people in it, it would have been worth it. GUN CONTROL KILLS. — LTC Stasski, 9/11/01
