SAF Honors Colorado's Jeanne Assam With Eleanor Roosevelt Award

"For her remarkable display of heroism and courage under fire, the Second Amendment Foundation announced today that it will recognize Jeanne Assam, who confronted a gunman on Dec. 9 at the New Life Church shooting in Colorado Springs, with the Eleanor Roosevelt Award."

"The Roosevelt award was created by SAF founder Alan Gottlieb, co-author of America Fights Back: Armed Self-Defense in a Violent Age. The award honors exceptional women who use firearms in self-defense and the defense of others. The award is named in memory of former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, who frequently carried a revolver for personal protection, even while she lived in the White House, and during the times that she campaigned in the South for civil rights." ...
 

Gottlieb & Workman: Omaha shooting another failure of 'gun free zones'

"Shopping malls should be as safe as public schools and university campuses, and the outrage that unfolded at the Westroads mall in Omaha, Nebraska proves they are, thanks to the monumentally stupid proliferation of so-called 'gun free zones.'"

"These victim disarmament zones are the handiwork of extremist gun control fanatics and their soulmates in state legislatures who created these loopholes in right-to-carry statutes across the country. Instead of providing areas of presumed safety...gun free zones are nothing more than risk-free environments where every criminal and lunatic with an axe to grind or a desire to become famous can stack up a quick body count with little concern about resistance from an armed citizen." ...

"Praise to the armed citizen who stopped the nameless shooter in Colorado's New Life Church. Jeanne Assam is the perfect illustration of what the armed citizen is all about. She is a concealed carry permit holder private citizen at the time she had to make the decision to act in facing grave danger and in defense of another. She is one of millions of Americans who carry their weapon without problems enunciated by anti-gun activists. ..."

"The Colorado New Life Church Center had announced that it would re-examine security, and there is one superb security all churches, campuses, workplaces, airports, hospitals, parks, public buildings and malls should learn: the armed citizen is the original Homeland Security ..." ...

"There is much talk in the United States as to what the Second Amendment truly means. Is this an amendment for families of hunter and gathering traditions? Or how about the ideas of self defense of nation and home? Or is it for the lunatic fringe wanting to keep the deceitful government in check by bearing arms? ... Is this amendment being toyed with, being manipulated, being trashed?"

"Cases are currently pending in the Supreme Court as to what kind of 'arms' a citizen can own. Is it a handgun ban, an automatic rifle ban, a bullet ban? What does infringe mean? ..." ...

"Lawyers are not necessarily historians, and sometimes it shows."

"Despite the obvious importance of the Constitution’s original understanding, legal writers attempting to deduce the original understanding often have reached their conclusions based on astonishingly few sources. Furthermore, they sometimes misinterpret the sources they use. Among the malefactors, alas, are some Supreme Court justices and contributors to the nation’s most prestigious law reviews."

"In an effort to raise the quality of originalist research, this essay is designed to introduce legal writers to the general range of material readily available for competent work."

"How wrong they were, as evidenced by the Supreme Court’s recent decision to rule on whether Washington, D.C.'s strict firearms law violates the Constitution ..." ...

"The first Texas Rangers in the 1830s used muzzle-loading rifles. In Indian fights, they had to dismount to aim and reload. A charging warrior could shoot off half a dozen arrows in the time it took to reload a cap-and-ball rifle."

"Walter Prescott Webb wrote that the Rangers and Indian fighters 'would discharge their rifles, then mount, and go in pursuit. At most they had only two shots each, and these were soon spent. In the meantime, the Indian could discharge his arrow from a running horse, and as soon as his adversary's guns were empty could turn upon him with arrows and spears. Texas needed a new weapon. The man who supplied that weapon was a Connecticut Yankee named Samuel Colt.'" ...

"I don't. I hope never to find myself in a situation where I would have needed one to protect my life--though I concede that this is a dire possibility in a country where guns seem so prevalent. They are designed for only one purpose: to kill. And I myself am enough in tune with Buddhist teachings to believe that the taking of life is wrong in any circumstance--and, yes, that includes the saving of my own. I'm not naïve enough to believe that I wouldn't resort to violence in order to preserve my life, but I would not prepare for that contingency with the purchase of a gun." ...
 

Shootings in Colorado and Nebraska Reminds Us of the Cost of Assault Weapons in Civilian Hands (BCPGV)

FULL TEXT BELOW:

We are saddened by the recent shootings that left four people murdered and four more wounded at a missionary training center and a church in Arvada and Colorado Springs, Colorado. This follows on the heels of the shooting in the Omaha, Nebraska mall where eight people were murdered and five wounded. Our sympathy and prayers go out to all of the family and friends who are grieving.

Having a military-style assault rifle with high-capacity ammunition clips, enabled two troubled young men to kill and injure innocent people quickly and efficiently. Allowing the easy acquisition and possession of military-style weapons like this is foolhardy and the results are tragic.

"'I'm a hunter. I know what a gun looks like,' Richardson said. 'I shot for his leg. If I hit him, I don't know.'" ...

"Some people are arming themselves against such attacks through the 'Concealed Carry Law.'"

"Elissia Palmer first got her concealed carry permit 11 years ago because of late nights spent at work."

"'Sometimes, depending upon what I was involved in, especially if its a grant-writing time, I could be there as late as 9 or 10 o'clock a night,' Palmer recalled."

"There's no other way to say it: This past weekend's shootings at New Life Church and Youth With a Mission were tragedies. ..."

"We don't pretend to have the answer to prevent this kind of tragedy, but it can be instructional to look at what shootings of this nature have in common: they took place in places where shooters expect to find unarmed victims. At New Life, that expectation turned out to be a fatal mistake for the gunman; he was stopped by an armed member of the congregation. That's the lesson that should be taken from this event."

"A quick study of mass shootings in the United States reveals the same common element: Schools, malls, offices and churches are usually gun-free zones. ..." ...

"When the U.S. Supreme Court gets around to deciding what the Second Amendment means to Justice Anthony Kennedy - who, we are constantly reminded, is the guy who really matters - I hope it won't forget what happened on Sunday in Colorado Springs."

"What started out as a perfect example of the dangers of allowing Americans to keep and bear arms - the fatal shooting of two teenage girls and the wounding of their father in a church parking lot - ended instead as a nearly perfect example of the wisdom of allowing Americans to keep and bear arms." ...

"Either way, I hope that when Anthony Kennedy sits down to decide which way his vote will swing, he'll consider that when the shooting starts, an armed church is a safer place than a 'gun-free' mall."

"The acts of a plainclothes female security guard, who shot and killed a gunman at the New Life Church in Colorado, is heating up the debate over gun control laws, prompting panelists on Fox's Fox & Friends to discuss if all Americans should be armed."

"'I hope this represents a change in the way we think about gun-free zones,' said Larry Pratt of the Gun Owners of America, 'because heretofore, we've had these kinds of bad guys attacking schools and churches and they don't meet any armed resistance ... I think we have to get it through our heads: gun-free zones are criminal-friendly zones.'"

"Paul Helmke of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence reminded Pratt that 'we're not talking about laws' but rather the independent decisions of churches, schools, and private businesses to prohibit guns on their property. ..." ...

KABA Note: Of course Ms. Assam was not "a plainclothes female security guard", she was a CCW holder who volunteered to assist with security.

"The first shooting occurred in a 'gun free zone' at the Westroads Mall in Omaha. Nebraska allows residents who have passed the state's criteria to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense except in prohibited areas. Nebraska law allows private businesses to prohibit concealed-carry at their business. The mall had posted a sign prohibiting legal concealed-carry for self-defense."

"The stated purpose is to 'create a safe working and shopping environment for employees and customers.' Sadly, it provides the illusion of safety while virtually guaranteeing the opposite. Once they've disarmed you, these stores refuse to provide for your protection. ... Are we to believe that a murderer is going to stop when they see a 'no guns allowed' sign?" ...

"The warnings—and other anguished, despair-filled messages over the past few months—were posted by someone using the screen name 'nghtmrchld26.' The postings paint a picture of a home-schooled Colorado youth once affiliated with the Youth With a Mission program—as 24-year-old Murray had been."

"In 2003, Rep. Graf re-introduced it in Arizona (HB 2320). The state of Georgia joined the effort to enact this important new legislation with HB31, introduced by Rep. Bobby Franklin (R-17th). At least two other states actively considered the bill."

"The Gun-Free-Zone Liability Act has excellent value even if it isn't enacted in its first years -- it is a just and common-sense bill that would help protect the public. ... Basically, 'If you create a gun-free zone, you're liable for any harm it causes.'" ...

A suspended Forks Township police officer accused of leading state police on a four-county chase at up to 126 mph faces trial on drunken driving, speeding and other charges.

A judge ruled 43-year-old Ernest Fimiano will face trial in Columbia County Court after waiving a preliminary hearing Tuesday.

Officials say three state police cruisers chased Fimiano 40 miles on Interstate 80 through Union, Northumberland, Montour and Columbia counties. Troopers pulled the off-duty officer over near Berwick about 2 a.m. on Oct. 14.

Fimiano is on administrative leave. With him was his attorney, Gregorio Paglianite, who says it is a shame a seasoned officer's employment is threatened by a single mistake.

Locklear was charged in November with assault on a female, injury to personal property and domestic criminal trespass after an alleged assault on his estranged wife.

The Raeford City Council suspended Locklear as authorities investigated the case. He hadn't been reinstated as of Wednesday afternoon.

He has served as police chief since January 2004.
