Officials at the Oregon public university system are scrambling to figure out how to limit guns on their campuses following a court ruling that overturned a long standing ban on guns -- the latest state to allow weapons on campus. The Oregon Court of Appeals ruled last week that concealed weapons permit holders can bring their guns anywhere on public university campuses. While officials mull an appeal, they are looking into ways around the ban, such as prohibiting guns in dorm rooms and the football stadium.

In what promises to be a continuing debate on the rights of law-abiding citizens, the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled this week that banning firearms on the grounds of Oregon’s public universities exceeded the scope of the university system’s authority, thereby opening up the state’s campuses to individuals who hold valid concealed handgun licenses.

The lawsuit suggests UNF is claiming it has the right to ban guns from being stored in vehicles in UNF parking lots just like a high school in a Florida public school district could. The lawsuit, however, says UNF falls outside that exemption because it is a state university — and not a local school district.
 

OH: Is Ohio’s New “Guns-in-Bars” Law a Smart Move?

People may find more than just good food and drinks in their next trip to a local bar or restaurant in Ohio. Other patrons could be concealing their registered firearms thanks to a new state law.

On September 30, the state of Ohio joined 44 other states that allow customers to carry guns in locations that serve beer, wine and liquor. Restaurants, bars, and stadiums are included in the list of locations. The catch is that persons carrying guns into these establishments must have a concealed-carry permit. Of course, they can’t drink alcohol while on premises, either.

If social unrest similar to August's London riots occurred in Missouri, there would have been more deaths and it would have been more difficult to successfully prosecute the rioters, Cape Girardeau County Prosecuting Attorney Morley Swingle told members of the Cape Girardeau Rotary Club on Monday.

Swingle was invited to speak about the rights of Missouri business owners and residents to protect their property during mayhem and riots.

Under a 2007 statute known as Missouri's Castle Law, home or business owners may use deadly force if they reasonably believe someone is trying to commit a burglary or arson, Swingle said.

Wisconsin will take a step away from its decades long tradition of criminalizing anyone carrying a weapon starting Nov. 1 as the carry conceal legislation goes into effect.

Under previous Wisconsin law, in place since the 1960s, it was a crime for anyone other than a peace officer to go armed with a "concealed and dangerous weapon." Anyone found guilty of that crime faced a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 9 months in jail.

I strongly support the individual right to bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the Constitution, and I believe that law-abiding citizens should have the ability to purchase firearms for defense or recreation. However, I feel that firearms should not be allowed in certain places, and a building on a university campus such as the College of William and Mary is one of them.
 

Gun control: Supreme Court refuses to hear landmark case

The US Supreme Court on Monday turned down the appeal of a Maryland man who said the state’s restrictive gun-permit law violated his constitutional right to carry a firearm in public for self defense.

The case, Williams v. Maryland, was being closely followed because it might have set the stage for another potential landmark Second Amendment decision by the high court.

The justices did not explain why they rejected the appeal, but the action does not end the possibility of a gun-rights case reaching the court this term. The Supreme Court is awaiting briefs in at least one other gun case, and several other Second Amendment cases are working their way to the Supreme Court.

With the lawsuit against the state of Hawaii’s infringement of 2nd Amendment rights moving forward, the issue of concealed carry is getting some air time in various news outlets around the state, and the usual suspects’ anti-CCW propaganda is being re-hashed.

One of the worst propaganda machines is the Violence Policy Center (VPC), a national anti-CCW lobbying group. The VPC, among other propaganda pieces, keeps a running tally of fatal shootings by “Concealed Carry Killers”.

I mean, sure, we expect this stuff from Arizona. And Texas. But Oregon and Wisconsin, allowing concealed guns on campus? Believe it, thanks to conservative legislators and lawsuits from gun nuts! Thank god that your children will now be safe.

David Codrea of “Gun Rights Examiner” and Mike Vanderboegh of “Sipsey Street Irregulars“ (both unwavering pro Second Amendment writers with blog sites) have performed a service to America that is far from being fully weighed.

These two “everyday” Americans researched and broke the story about what may likely end up being the most despicable criminal scandal in modern American political history. We’re talking about the blood drenched BATFE debacle called “Fast and Furious”. And it’s not just BATFE involved. Homeland Security is in it up to the armpits. The FBI is in it up to its neck.

A federal ban on selling guns or ammunition to medical marijuana users raises constitutional concerns and complicates matters for states where medical use of the drug is legal, Montana's attorney general said Monday.

Steve Bullock wrote U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder a letter in which he says the federal government should act carefully "when its laws and policies involve conflicts with those of the states."

The .44 Special revolver has always been one of those great guns for which I have held a special affinity. It is a relatively mild shooting cartridge that throws a big chunk of lead downrange. Plus it is easy to handload hotter rounds if you so desire.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
