"Does this mean we need not concern ourselves, that any such talk amounts to 'sound and fury, signifying nothing,' and that any effort spent by grassroots activists and their representative organizations would be a waste of 'political capital'?"

"I would not make that assumption because I would not put any underhanded maneuver beneath the enemies of freedom, and that includes a caution to those who (correctly) maintain a treaty cannot supersede the Constitution—if the folks behind this power grab had any respect for rights, they would not be behind it in the first place."

But the judge said the two men violated a sacred trust between residents and those who swear to serve and protect them when they lied on the witness stand during a criminal court proceeding in 2010.

For that, he said, they deserved to spend some time locked up.

Hickman sentenced the men, convicted by a jury of first-degree perjury, to spend three weekends in jail, another 79 days on home detention and to perform 40 hours of community service.
 

GA: Gun Goes Off at Checkpoint at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport

A scare at the busiest airport in the world, as a gun goes off at a security checkpoint at Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that TSA agents spotted a .22-caliber Magnum in a bag that was going through the x-ray machine on Sunday. It turns out the gun was loaded with small game pellet ammunition known as "snake" bullets. An Atlanta police officer who responded to the scene was trying to unload the gun when it went off. No one was injured, but the officer wrote in his report: “I was grazed by a pellet fragment on the left side of my face. However, there were no visible injuries.”

Ed.: I think they mean "...was trying to unload it when the officer negligently pulled the trigger."

CA: Video: Holiday commercial sparks warm, fuzzy feelings about — not puppies — guns

Listen to this advertisement and you’ll reasonably assume that what’s for sale is something forlorn, lonely, cute and cuddly … a stray puppy, perhaps.

“They’ve been mistreated and misunderstood for generations,” the ad begins. “Abusive owners have done severe damage and given these beautiful creatures a bad reputation.”

That’s how it’s supposed to sound. The owner of PRK Arms in Fresno, Calif., brainstormed this brilliant way to sell guns — and, so far, it’s worked.

FL: Shooting Victim Catches His Own Attack on Video

It is not uncommon these days for people to capture crimes on their cell phone video cameras. But the victim of a shooting getting images of his own attack? That's a new one. It happened in Florida (of course) last week. Salvatore Miglino sensed there would be trouble when he went to his mother-in-law's house to pick up his son for a court-allowed custody visit, reports the New York Daily News. So he took out his iPhone and turned on the video camera. He was right. Police say 66-year-old Cheryl Hepner pulled a gun and shot Miglino twice. The gun jammed when she allegedly tried to pump more bullets into him. "I can't believe you did that! I can't believe you did that! What are you, crazy? Miglino can be heard screaming.

She was arrested for felony drug possession in Aspen last week and wasted no time in hitting the town for a party this weekend.

So it was a pretty brave soul who handed Brooke Mueller a firearm at an L.A. gun shop on Saturday.

Armed with a search warrant, Nelson County Sheriff Kelly Janke went looking for six missing cows on the Brossart family farm in the early evening of June 23. Three men brandishing rifles chased him off, he said.
Janke knew the gunmen could be anywhere on the 3,000-acre spread in eastern North Dakota. Fearful of an armed standoff, he called in reinforcements from the state Highway Patrol, a regional SWAT team, a bomb squad, ambulances and deputy sheriffs from three other counties.
He also called in a Predator B drone.

For the first time, a Broward County man has successfully used the state's "Stand Your Ground" law to block his prosecution on a first-degree murder charge.

Nour Badi Jarkas, 54, of Plantation, was facing trial for the January 2009 shooting death of his estranged wife's boyfriend, John Concannon. But Broward Circuit Judge Ilona Holmes ordered an acquittal after finding that Jarkas was an invited guest in his wife's home and felt threatened during a confrontation with the victim.

I am responding to the full-page ad with Mike Carroll, former president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. The ad blamed U.S. Rep. Dent for not opposing a bill that would force Pennsylvania to accept concealed carry gun permits from every other state. I am a recently retired police officer with more than 30 years in law enforcement, and I want people to know that it is not the law-abiding citizen with concealed carry permits that the police have to worry about, it is the criminal who illegally carries stolen weapons.
 

OH: Government should uphold, not bypass, gun laws

Let me make sure we understand this. We have gun laws. The federal government implements a program that bypasses the gun laws in place. The government then wants to impose new laws because the laws they intentionally broke were not working. The Founding Fathers put the Second Amendment into the Bill of Rights to protect Americans from people like Eric Holder. Chairman Issa reminded Holder that Nixon-era Attorney General John Mitchell also lied to Congress. And nobody died in Watergate.

Gun sales also posted record numbers.

In an under-reported story, gun dealers flooded the FBI with background-check requests for prospective buyers on Black Friday, smashing the single-day, all-time high by 32 percent, according to bureau records. An FBI spokesman said that the checks, required by federal law, surged to 129,166 during the day, eclipsing the previous high of 97,848 on Black Friday of 2008.

The actual number of firearms sold is likely higher because multiple firearms can be included in a transaction by a single buyer. And the FBI does not track actual gun sales.

Obama administration officials are deliberately keeping gun owners in the dark about the president’s gun-control agenda as we head into next year’s national election, because administration officials know that when NRA members and gun owners show up at the polls en masse, anti-gun candidates lose.

On Sept. 21, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) responded to confusion in the federal firearms licensing community about whether medical marijuana patients can apply for gun ownership.

Its letter refers to the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. An unlawful user or addict to controlled substances is prohibited from purchasing firearms or ammunition. Furthermore, presenting a medical marijuana card is "reasonable cause to believe" that the transferee is an unlawful user or addict.

This amendment is so good. Rather than propose spending bill after spending bill, the 112th Congress has set forth an initiative that guarantees Constitutional rights to the citizen and does not tax, regulate, and restrict them.

H.R. 822 says that our 2nd and 14th Amendment’ rights are relevant in today’s society. The 14th Amendment makes the Bill of Rights in particular applicable to the states. Yes. Congress is finally doing something right!

Yet blockage in the Senate and a veto from the White House may happen, anyway. That is because politicians hungry to govern our freedoms and police our actions do not comprehend the fundamental value of the Second Amendment.

As Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich campaigned in New Hampshire today, the National Association for Gun Rights sent out robo-calls in New Hampshire accusing the former House speaker of being “anti-gun.”

The calls say Gingrich has not returned the organization’s survey, adding, “Maybe it’s because of his past support for gun control.”

The call says that as speaker, Gingrich “wanted to strengthen the anti-gun Brady Bill that created a national gun registry.”

[Mayor Bloomberg said] “You don’t need armor piercing bullets for hunting. Last time I saw a deer wearing a bullet proof vest was a long time ago,” he said.

“These guns are used to kill people,” he said.

...

It was there that [Officer] Figoski was shot in the face with a semiautomatic weapon, Kelly said.

Ed.: Umm, this unfortunate officer was shot in the face, not through his bullet-resistant ballistic vest.

Another school shooting at Virginia Tech and more calls for gun control everywhere. Calling for more of what doesn’t work betrays an underlying stubbornness which is incompatible with student safety.

By now, America is realizing a few things about gun control in general. It doesn’t work on criminals. It does work to grow chaos and tragedy for political purposes, that part that is becoming increasingly evident.
