MN: Former Police Chief Says He's Not Guilty Of Sex Assault Charges

Jason Mindrup appeared in Mower County Court Thursday morning to face two felony sex charges.
The former Brownsdale Chief of Police entered not guilty pleas on both counts after being accused of sexual assault from an alleged incident in late August.
A criminal complaint against Mindrup said he sexually assaulted a woman in his personal vehicle after picking her up as she left a bar in Waltham August 31.
The Brownsdale City Council voted to fire Mindrup from his former job after a Minnesota State BCA investigation found there was enough evidence to charge him with first and third degree criminal sexual conduct.
Mindrup's next scheduled court dates will be in March 2014 for both his pretrial conference and his jury trial.

Connecticut's Governor Dannel Malloy gave opening remarks. He told the audience of legal scholars and practitioners that Connecticut supports the constitutional right to own firearms but he says no right is without its limitations.

Pop, pop. Pop, pop.
In four shots, the intruder was down.
“I couldn’t see anything,” Newby said as her eyes teared up during a staged home invasion. “I just wanted to kick the snot out of him.”

With Obamacare in a shambles – and Republicans incredibly voting today to put it on life support for a year when they should have allowed it to implode – Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi need to turn the spotlight away from that political train wreck. They trotted out the specter of a “universal background check” bill being passed. Sure, that will get people looking in another direction. They used Wednesday's Brady Law anniversary event to launch their effort.

Guns and God. A local pastor believes his congregation should have a Biblical understanding of what concealed carry means for them.

That's why they are holding an open concealed carry training course this weekend that's both safety-based and spiritual.

Pastor Troy Benitone is confident and convinced a weekend concealed carry seminar is what his congregation needs.

"The mission of the church is to equip the believer," he said, "The church needs to quit being shy about educating people."

Miami, Florida: Canada’s foreign ministry warns that “Canadians have been the victims of crime such as break-ins, assaults and pickpocketing in the Miami area, sometimes during daylight hours.” Florida’s criminals know Canadians don’t carry concealed handguns, so they know Canucks are high-priority/low-risk targets. If you’re in Miami, don’t talk about the weather or hockey, and you’ll be fine.

3D Printing Stocks and Gun Advocates — Strange Bedfellows

The populist appeal of 3D printers fits perfectly in line with many gun rights advocates. The idea that you can create something on demand, without a big corporation as a middleman, is incredibly appealing to those who place a premium on self-determination.

And while having the freedom to make your own widgets to sell is very different than having the freedom to create your own guns for self-defense, philosophically, it’s all about affordable access.

We are currently challenging the Arkansas Statute that, “completely prohibits resident legal aliens from the concealed carry of guns, in public, for the purpose of self-defense.”

In a separate case in California, GLOCK Inc. has joined to support SAF in our case challenging the state handgun roster requirements that include microstamping and magazine disconnects.

We constantly have to battle to protect our Second Amendment rights. As long as patriots like you can keep our doors open we will never stop fighting. It is imperative we collect as many resources as possible to challenge anti-gun rights laws from coast to coast. WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW!

We have contacted and are in the process of contacting additional attorneys who are willing and able to help us go after the worst offending municipalities and NJSP barracks. Our contention is that if ANY municipality can process these applications correctly and on time, they ALL can; these delays of 3, 6, 9 months and greater are unacceptable and will no longer be tolerated.

FL: Citizens Should Not Have Assault, Military-Grade Weapons

The National Rifle Association's name says it all — rifle.

It does not say assault weapons. Assault weapons were created for use in combat. They are not used in hunting and very seldom used in home defense (although I am sure it has happened somewhere).

Availability of assault weapons outside of the military is akin to making atomic weapons available to the general public.

...

Assault weapons first came into use outside of the military and police by gangsters to outgun the police. The Thompson submachine gun was the forerunner and then the mass produced Russian AK-47 and the Uzi created the market.

Intelligence Squared held a debate Thursday night on whether the “Constitutional right to bear arms has outlived its usefulness” or if it is as equally pertinent today as it was at its conception.

Those for the motion include Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, Alan M. Dershowitz, and Professor of Law and of Government at the University of Texas Law School, Sanford Levinson.

Those against the motion include Research Director of the Independence Institute, David Kopel, and Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law, Eugene Volokh.

In the nearly two-hour long discussion the men talk about the Second Amendment, the correlation between gun ownership and homicide rates in the U.S., and the evolution of firearms and our country.
 

Guns and Mental Illness

...people with mental illness aren’t a homogenous group — mental illness includes such disparate conditions as attention deficit disorders, anxiety, autism, dementia, depression, insomnia, learning disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and tic disorders.

Most mentally ill people, even most who hear voices, are no more violent than the rest of us. Mental health professionals know that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. Thus, the best warning that Navy Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis, might commit a violent act was his history of arrests for gun violence, not the voices in his head. Furthermore, to suggest the Second Amendment does not apply to people with mental health problems is, frankly, discriminatory.
