"Stupid" Study Says Having Gun Increases Risk of Getting Shot
Submitted by: Bruce Krafft

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"In Philadelphia, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania find, possessing a gun is strongly associated with getting shot. Since 'guns did not protect those who possessed them,' they conclude, 'people should rethink their possession of guns.' This is like noting that possessing a parachute is strongly associated with being injured while jumping from a plane, then concluding that skydivers would be better off unemcumbered by safety equipment designed to slow their descent. 'Can this study possibly be as stupid as it sounds?' asks Stewart Baker at Skating on Stilts. Having shelled out $30 for the privilege of reading the entire article ... I can confirm that the answer is yes." ...

Chicago's 2nd Amendment Chokehold

"Down here in West Texas, I keep a handgun in my car and usually one somewhere on my person. My habits are not novel: For I live among people who understand and value our inherent right to keep and bear arms, as well as our right to self-defense."

"Yet in many parts of the country, like Chicago, where handgun ownership was banned in 1982, the norm is quite different."

"In the Windy City, men like Otis McDonald, a 76 year-old retiree, tell stories of being prisoners in their own homes: unable to defend either their property or their lives because they are denied access to the very tool our Founders believed belonged in the hands of all 'free men.' That tool is a gun. ..." ...
 

A Supreme Court gunfight
Submitted by: Bruce Krafft

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Last year, the Supreme Court declared in a Washington, D.C., case that the constitutional right to keep and bear arms belongs to individuals ... Last week, the court agreed to decide whether that broad, and debatable, interpretation of the 2nd Amendment applies to states as well as the federal government. At issue is a Chicago law imposing stringent restrictions on gun ownership, including a ban on ... handguns."

"If you support measures to reduce gun violence, as this page does, it's tempting to hope that the court will rule that states aren't bound by the 2nd Amendment. The problem is that allowing states (and cities) to ignore this part of the Bill of Rights could undermine the requirement that they abide by others." ...

"In response to a challenge from law professor and blogger Brad Smith, George Mason University legal scholar (and Reason contributor) Ilya Somin nominates a few of his candidates for 'best Supreme Court decisions from a libertarian point of view':"
"Given my criteria, the Peonage Cases of the early 1900s surely rank high, as they enabled numerous southern blacks to escape a system of forced labor and did so at a time when Jim Crow racism was at its height, and the political branches of government showed little willingness to protect black rights. Also worthy Buchanan v. Warley (1917), which struck down racially based zoning ..."

... "There's a meme wending its way around internet forums and the like that she'll recuse herself, since she already ruled at the circuit court level that the Second Amendment does not restrict the power of states to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms. Some seem to be under the impression that she ruled on McDonald, which she did not (she ruled on Maloney v. Rice), and because of that, the prospect of overruling herself will present a judicial ethics conflict." ...
 

Does the Second Amendment Bind the States?

... "Last week, the Court announced that it would hear a case, McDonald v. Chicago, posing the question whether the Second Amendment applies to the states and their sub-divisions. In lawyer's jargon, McDonald requires the Court to say whether the Fourteenth Amendment 'incorporates' the Second Amendment against the states. As I shall explain in this column, the case poses an intellectual challenge for the Justices who were in the Heller majority. To see why, we will need to begin by reviewing the story of how other constitutional rights came to be incorporated against the states." ...

"Gun-rights activists are once again gearing up for battle. Following last year's decision to strike down Washington D.C.’s prohibition on handguns, the U.S. Supreme Court decided last week to take up another case about the right to keep and bear arms. And this one could have even more widespread implications ... than District of Columbia v. Heller, where the court upheld the individual human right within the federal district."

"In McDonald v. Chicago, the court will rule on the constitutionality of Chicago's quarter-century-old draconian measures restricting firearm ownership — essentially an outright ban on the possession of a handgun, a primary and essential tool of self-defense for tens of millions of Americans. ..." ...

"If you are knowledgeable about firearms and enjoy good fiction, you know how little of the latter embraces the former. This is why novelist and movie critic Stephen Hunter's series ... have become so hugely popular among us 'gun people.'"

"My own favorites in the series include 'Dirty White Boys,' 'Hot Springs,' and 'Pale Horse Coming.' The latter uses the device of real characters with slightly altered names when mid-20th Century lawman Earl Swagger assembles the great gun experts of the period as a posse seeking justice in the Deep South."

"Hunter does something similar in his latest in the series as Swagger's son, retired Vietnam era super-sniper Bob Lee Swagger, decides that it’s once again 'time to hunt.'" ...

However, if Cerberus did indeed acquire AAC, we can’t blame them, since AAC makes great muzzle cans (and flash hiders/adapters) and utilizes some very advanced machinery and processes to do so." ...

"Whatever significance is attached to Chicago's failed bid to host the 2016 Olympics, it is of small importance to the rest of the country. More far-reaching and frightening is the Supreme Court's decision to take up a case challenging the city's ban on handgun ownership in the new term ..."

"The case is best considered a preview of coming attractions. The gun lobby, if it wins in the Supreme Court, is prepared to challenge every gun control law enacted at any level of government. It will usher in a scary season of assault on the common sense of citizens, law enforcement officials and others who believe that carrying today's high-powered weapons in an urbanized, mobile -- and angry -- society is chillingly dangerous, and deadly." ...

"Congress has fallen all over itself to show that it is the vassal of the [NRA], and the administration, saving its political ammunition for issues like health-care reform, hasn't had a pole long enough to touch gun control. In May, legislation on credit cards ... was amended to allow people to bring loaded guns into national parks. Mr. Obama signed it."

"It is no surprise that the Supreme Court has decided to hear the so far unsuccessful constitutional challenge to the Chicago handgun ban. The Court's ruling last year in District of Columbia v. Heller, discovering a new Second Amendment right to personal gun possession unrelated to militia service, determined that D.C., and by implication Congress, could not ban handguns consistent with the Second Amendment. However, because D.C. is a unique federal district, Heller did not address the so-called "incorporation issue" -- whether the Second Amendment applies to states and localities through the operation of the 14th Amendment." ...

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says the shooting death of a 93-year-old man in southwest Oregon appears to have been in self-defense.

Zielinski says the investigation remains active. When it's finished, the results will be forwarded to a grand jury for a review of any possible criminal charges.
