Self Reliance Means Freedom

There seems always to be an underlying debate among self-reliant types who make up a majority of the readership of this magazine as to whether or not the individual should lay low in society so as to avoid the ever watchful eye of Big Government, or whether the individual should get involved in politics and confront Big Government, or at least help out in some way to roll back the tide of Big Government intrusion into our lives.
 

AZ: 17-year-old disciplined for shotgun shells at school

High-school senior Kim Peters carries an Olympic identification badge and an Arizona skeet-shooting members' card, but neither got her out of a four-day suspension for bringing shotgun shells onto school grounds. The 17-year-old started competitive clay shooting her freshman year at the urging of her mom and stepfather. She has since won several trophies in the male-dominated sport and in August was one of 18 athletes across the nation to attend this year's Junior Olympic shooting camp in Colorado Springs, Colo. But the hobby got Peters into trouble last week.

The school administrators said that the shotgun shells could be classified as a "dangerous instrument"

Three days after Seung-Hui Cho fired more than 170 rounds during his Virginia Tech killing spree, Abby Spangler fired off e-mail messages to her friends. That Sunday, a group gathered outside city hall in Alexandria, Va. Thirty-two people lay on the ground, simulating the deaths of 32 Virginia Tech victims, for three minutes. That was the amount of time, they said, it took Cho to buy a gun. A movement was born. So far, Spangler's protests have been staged in 12 states and the District of Columbia and cities including Raleigh, Durham and Charlotte in this state. The 32nd protest, called UNC-32, is scheduled for noon today in front of Wilson Library at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Officials with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources say 37-year-old James Harris was pheasant hunting with a group about three miles north of Grinnell when the accident happened.

Officials say the group had shot a bird and when Harris went to retrieve it, he put his gun on the ground and crossed a fence. As he crossed the fence, hunting dogs stepped on his gun causing it to fire.

Note to hunter: Teach your dogs to keep their paws off the trigger until they intend to shoot...

Few shades of politics clash louder with the liberal City Council than defending the National Rifle Association, calling to task labor unions and publicly bashing illegal immigration. In a city where the face of the GOP is presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, who has supported abortion and gay rights, traditional Conservative views are out of lockstep with the Democratic culture. But several politicians, often those from Staten Island, buck the trend.

"...having heard the shots, and meeting the plaintiff in error, asked him if he had done that shooting, and he said that he had; that 'he had shot into the air for fun;' ..."

"...I know what the rules and orders are, but I told you I would go with you to Pine Ridge in the morning.' Then, according to the evidence for the prosecution, the plaintiff in error, without further provocation, shot the deceased, who died..."

"The policemen had their arms with them when they went up to where the plaintiff in error was at the time the shooting was done..."

"...We think the court clearly erred in charging that the policemen had the right to arrest the plaintiff . . . and that the plaintiff in error had no right to resist it..."

A few weeks ago, I made a passing reference to a video clip of Brady Bunch legal director Dennis Henigan whining about the Parker v. DC decision, and something he did not say while reciting the Second Amendment. I have decided that it's worth a post of its own.

Ed.: This is a must watch video.
 

Russia: Weary of Highway Bribery, Russians Take On the Police
Submitted by: Anonymous

Kirill Formanchuk, like almost everyone who drives in Russia, was used to being pulled over by the police and cited for seemingly trumped up infractions. Yet instead of resigning himself to paying a bribe, he turned traffic stops into roadside tribunals, interrogating officers about their grasp of the law, recording the events and filing formal complaints about them.
And so it was that Mr. Formanchuk became a leader of a budding movement to uphold motorists’ rights in the face of police corruption, making him a not unfamiliar face when he went to a police station here two weeks ago to register his car.

Ed.: I really hope some of this was lost in translation...

"...It is difficult to think of a case of killing by shooting, where both men were armed, and both in readiness to shoot, and where both did shoot, in which the question would not arise, for the jury to answer, whether the killing was murder, or manslaughter, or a pure act of self-defense..."

"...It seems to us quite plain that an assault upon another by means of firing a pistol at him is naturally calculated to excite some kind of passion in the one upon whom such an assault is made..."

"...We only decide that the question as to the grade of the crime, whether murder or manslaughter, should have been submitted to the jury, as well as the question of self- defense..."

The .380 Auto is an interesting little cartridge. Designed by John Browning in 1908, it is just about the smallest caliber suitable for concealed carry. It certainly isn't nearly as powerful as either the 9mm Luger or the .38 Special, but it does lend itself to compact and simple pistols.

New from overnight, police say an elderly man in Gastonia took matters into his own hands when a robber broke into his home. It happened at a house on Sixth Avenue. The homeowner said he didn't know what to think when the crook came inside. He was shaken up and shot the intruder. The burglar ran off, and police say he was later found on South Myrtle School Road. He was taken to Carolinas Medical Center where he was released a short time later. He's in jail this morning, charged with first degree burglary.
 

Afghanistan: Afghan Ex-Militia Leaders Hoard Arms

Many former militia commanders and residents in northern Afghanistan have been hoarding illegal weapons in violation of the country’s disarmament laws, giving the excuse that they face a spreading Taliban insurgency from the south that government forces alone are too frail to stop, Afghan and Western officials say.
After years of moderate success for government disarmament programs, rumors of widespread defiance in the north have arisen recently among government officials and intelligence agencies in Kabul and elsewhere. Although there is little hard evidence that commanders are greatly enlarging their arsenals, officials say, some have been thwarting government programs, refusing to disarm and possibly even remobilizing militias.

"G.I. Joe is now a Brussels-based outfit that stands for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity,..."

As Platoon Sgt. Mitchell Paige and his 33 riflemen set about carefully emplacing their four water-cooled .30-caliber Brownings on that hillside, 65 years ago this week -- manning their section of the thin khaki line that was expected to defend Henderson Field against the assault of the night of Oct. 25, 1942 -- it's unlikely anyone thought they were about to provide the definitive answer to that most desperate of questions: How many able-bodied U.S. Marines does it take to hold a hill against 2,000 armed and motivated attackers?

In a landmark ruling with nationwide implications, the Indiana Court of Appeals today ruled that the City of Gary's lawsuit against gun manufacturers may proceed to trial. The 3-0 Court ruling held that the 2005 federal "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act" does not shield the gun industry from liability for irresponsible sales practices that funnel guns to the criminal market.
 

Japan will fingerprint, photograph all visitors

Japan hopes to thwart potential terrorists from entering the country by fingerprinting and photographing all foreigners ages 16 and over on entry starting next month, an official said Friday.

Privacy violation?
'We hope the system will help keep terrorists out of the country and also put at ease the minds of both the Japanese people and the foreigners who come here,' Sato said.


Opponents say the measures amount to discrimination against foreigners and a violation of their right to privacy.

Tokyo's staunch support of the U.S.-led invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and dispatch of forces to each region have raised concerns that Japan could become the target of terror attacks.

 

CEO of G.I. body armor provider faces life in prison

October 26, 2007 -- The former CEO of the leading supplier of body armor to U.S. soldiers in Iraq was charged yesterday with looting the company to bankroll a lavish lifestyle that included a $10 million bat mitzvah for his daughter.

He allegedly reaped $185 million by selling DHB stock when he learned that 6,000 bullet-proof vests the company made were about to be recalled for being faulty and not able to block bullets.

Hatfield, who left the firm in 2005, allegedly made $5 million in the scheme.

His lawyer, Paul Shechtman, said Brooks "grew up in Brooklyn and that means he doesn't run away from a fight."

Shechtman asked for bail of a mere $50 million.

I was always in astonishment when I would go and speak to Firearms Manufacturers Representative at our distributor shows, some of them would be in the most anti-gun states, with their Senators and Representatives seeking to put them out of business. I had one rep mention that his company was the black sheep of their state and that amazed me that a business that provided jobs, produced great products that our industry would marvel at and paid more than there fair share of taxes would be shunned by their own state.

It further irked me seeing Chuck Schumer, who has done more than any other Senator to erode our Right to Keep and Bear Arms, pledging to do everything in his power to keep Remington in New York.

When Jonathan Swift wrote his bitterly satirical essay, "A Modest Proposal," in the 18th century, he suggested that the problem of the poor could be solved by simply eating the impoverished - perhaps young, succulent babies first. Were Swift an American today, he might suggest that some of the meat be gathered from crime scenes and cooked before the bodies cooled off. Spoilage must be avoided. A good deal of dark meat would be available but there would be plenty of white meat as well. Given the number who die by the gun, we could have an all-American banquet available to gourmets and commoners alike.
 

Back door gun registry?

The plight of Red's Trading Post (under relentless assault from the BATFE, despite being "guilty" of nothing worse than occasional, trivial clerical errors), and many other gun dealers suffering the same fate (but few fighting back as courageously) may mean more to gun owners than simply the inconvenience of finding a gun shop nearby when so many are being forced to close. It certainly should mean something to any gun owner who believes that "registration leads to confiscation" (which has proved true far too often to be ignored).
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
