NJ: Gun permit applications jump in Morris

Barack Obama campaigned on hope and change, but he also might have delivered on something else: the urge to buy handguns.

Obama's presidential run — and fears he will clamp down on gun sales — seems to have triggered a larger surge in Morris County handgun permit applications than in the months following Sept. 11, 2001.

"The firearms industry has seen a jump in sales since the election, and the assumption is that the Democratic party could attempt to resurrect old, stricter gun control policies," Parsippany Police Sgt. Yvonne Christiano said.
 

Those Who Would Dominate Us Will First Deny Us Our Arms

We should consider these developments and reflect upon the warning from the Father of our country George Washington,

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."

Now is a very good time to take this admonition to heart and contact the White House and Congress urging them to nix this effort, and to not ratify the treaty if the President and his administration sign it.

"For years I've been sending memos to people who worked for me-desk editors, reporters, editorial writers-constantly trying to raise their consciousness about the usefulness of the Constitution in editorial work," he says. "Usually these memos that I would send would be simple memos, like, 'Where the hell does the Congress get the power to do that?' or, 'The New York Sun will not carry a dispatch about the Second Amendment which does not quote Justice Story as saying the Second Amendment is the palladium of our liberties.'"

Bob Warden alerted everyone that he was going to take his legal, concealed, and holstered Glock into the Southwest Community Center at noon.

"Public officials who choose to completely go against the law should not be able to get away with it," he said.

Warden was protesting the recent executive order by Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels to ban the possession of firearms at designated city facilities and parks.

It was reaction to the shooting at Seattle's Folklife Festival last year.

The state Attorney General's Office says it doesn't believe the city has the legal right to make such an order.
 

IA: 'Gap' lets abusers possess weapons

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller has tried for years to persuade state lawmakers to approve a measure that would prohibit people convicted of domestic abuse from owning firearms.

This year, the proposal was supported by state and county associations of police and prosecutors, but was opposed by lobbyists for Iowa Gun Owners, Iowa Carry Inc. and the Iowa Sportsmen's Federation.

"Domestic violence homicides account for a major share of Iowa killings each year," Miller said at the beginning of the 2009 legislative session. "Most of the victims are killed by guns."

After reading the St. Augustine Record front page article entitled “Firearms Sales Increase” I felt compelled to set the record straight.

First, I find it some what comical, and amusing that most ignorant African-Americans and Caucasians believe that militias and second amendment supporters are right wing organizations and people that are racist and unpatriotic. In my experience that is far from the truth.

When I give speeches on college campuses it is often the case that the biggest jackass in the audience is a liberal professor at that university. Last Thursday was no exception when Professor Elliot Cramer [Ed.: of “I have a Colt 45 and I know how to use it.” fame.] showed his a** in front of an audience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The speech was on affirmative action but it might as well have been on the need for post-tenure psychiatric evaluations of professors.

Of course, those people who love Sheriff Joe claim he only is enforcing the laws, which, of course, is the same thing Sheriff Hutchens claims as she cracks down on holders of concealed-weapons permits and their gun rights.

...

I've been (and remain) a critic of the current sheriff, who has turned a blind eye to the code of silence among deputies and has been irrationally hostile to gun rights and gun owners. But anyone who believes that Sheriff Joe is a model for modern policing has no business being in the race for sheriff.
 

Let's Talk About Private Nukes

Second, that among that handful of people on Earth who might be able to afford a private nuke — if they liquidated all their assets and devoted those assets exclusively to the purchase of one — it’s likely that not a single one of them would see any reason to buy/build one for terrestrial use.

The threat of “private nukes” is non-existent, and would be so even in the absence of laws forbidding them. Anyone who pulls out the “private nukes” argument in favor of “gun control” — or the continued existence of the state — is, by doing so, confessing that they’re all out of real arguments and grasping at straws.

"Something is going to happen today in Seattle that gun owners everywhere should be interested in following: A citizen is going to defy a gun ban. Live and in person, and apparently for everyone who is interested to watch."

It happened and he was asked to leave. And he told the papers he's not "a gun rights nut."

Whatever.

"What made me mad was when he said, 'You will have her [performing oral sex] for crack before she's 15,' in front of my little girl," Keffer told police at the time.

As the officer left, he broke the latch on her door, according to an internal investigation by Madison Police.

The officer was Matthew Leavitt, who would go through four more police departments and be accused of wrongdoing many times before assaulting Twan and Lauren Reynolds in September 2008.

Last month Leavitt was sentenced to two years in federal prison for violating Twan and Lauren Reynolds' civil rights while working as a police officer in Montgomery.

A former soldier who handed a discarded shotgun in to police faces at least five years imprisonment for "doing his duty".

Paul Clarke, 27, was found guilty of possessing a firearm at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday – after finding the gun and handing it personally to police officers on March 20 this year.

The jury took 20 minutes to make its conviction, and Mr Clarke now faces a minimum of five year's imprisonment for handing in the weapon.

Submitter's note: Wow, just wow. If the jury is forced to convict, then it ceases to be a jury.

The distrust rises partly from differences of culture and language: Many Hispanics in the city have roots in nations where police are often viewed as predators.

"Lot of people are afraid of the cops," said Jose Angel Soto, whose 16-year-old son was fatally shot on the street in May 2008.

But Fetherolf, who took office this year, also blamed a tradition of police officers who "love the chase. They get into this business to kick ass and take names, by and large. We're at odds with ourselves because of the people we hire."

It may have become a weapon of choice due to its lack of complexity, but the world's relationship with the AK-47 is anything but simple.

A killing machine responsible for a quarter of a million deaths a year in conflicts from Afghanistan to Central America, its instantly recognisable silhouette figures in the consciousness of people in even the most peaceful countries.

It has been used to suppress pro-democracy movements, to overthrow governments, to resist occupations and to commit gangland murders. In the 60 years it has been in use, it has also become the most common firearm in the world; one in five of the guns on the planet is a Kalashnikov, or a cheap copy.

Submitter's note: Blatant anti gun bias. The "victim" is actually the perpetrator.
