WV: Montgomery settles with police beating victims

"They said, 'You're a little St. Albans girl. You haven't had the privilege of being introduced to the Montgomery police yet,'" Lauren Reynolds said.

Twan Reynolds started talking to the two officers as he also tried to calm his daughter, who also was in the vehicle.

Leavitt and Hutchinson pulled Twan Reynolds out of his car and tried to handcuff him. When Reynolds told the men he hadn't done anything that justified arrest, Leavitt pulled out a slapjack -- a small weapon with a weight at the end -- and hit him in the face with it, according to Montgomery Police Lt. J.D. Burrow.
 

MI: Michigan Court Upholds No-Guns-For-Felons State Law

It's common to hear about Second Amendment lawsuits dealing with gun rights. But nearly all state constitutions include similar legal protections, sometimes with language that is more emphatic than the wording in the U.S. Constitution's Bill of Rights.

Take the recent case involving a Michigan man named Ricky Lee Baldwin, convicted by a jury of assault with intent to commit murder and unlawful possession of a firearm during a felony. He allegedly shot his wife in the neck and right ear after she admitted to an affair; a local news report said the 51-year old woman survived.

How can our children and grandchildren’s safety be guaranteed on the playfields and in the swimming areas in the city unless anyone who chooses to carry a gun there has that right. No one should have their Second Amendment rights infringed at any time. It would be like limiting someone’s freedom speech to yell “fire” in a crowded theater as a joke.

Oh, right. You can limit the right of free speech in cases like that. Well, thank goodness the state doesn’t allow such limitations on guns. Way to go Bob.
 

UN & IANSA Plotting to Tear Down the 2nd Amendment & Take Away Our Guns

NRA News’ investigative reporter Ginny Simone takes a look at the global gun control goals of the United Nations.

By pushing for a binding international treaty aimed at superseding the U.S. Constitution, the United Nations is committed to rendering Americans’ Second Amendment rights to own a firearm meaningless.

Simone interviews past and current U.N. officials and politicians and examines the debates at the United Nations Small Arms Summit to expose the international anti-gun agenda.

Bloomberg rails against gun violence

Gun worshipers want to tell you that an armed public is a safe public. They will also blame gun violence on the criminals and refuse to acknowledge any link between the amount of gun violence in our country and the fact that we sell guns like they’re toys and the registration system is a joke. Not only are hunting weapons and handguns sold everywhere, semi-automatic and assault weapons are also prevalent.

While it’s true that criminals will always seek out and use illegal firearms. But maybe if they weren’t so easy to buy, and so unregulated on how gun owners can legally secure, store and carry their weapons maybe it wouldn’t be so easy for petty thieves to get their hands on the guns in the first place.
 

Any violent attack can constitute a "deadly threat"

Those individuals who criticize a crime victim’s self defense actions often argue that the crime victim didn’t need to defend themselves with deadly force. As part of their argument, those individuals will generally suggest that the attacking criminal wasn’t (yet) a deadly threat, and that the shooting of the criminal by the victim was therefore improper. Firstly, I would note that not every state requires that there be a threat to one’s life before deadly force may be used. However, even assuming that a “deadly threat” really is the threshold at which it becomes proper to shoot the criminal in self defense, the argument is still deeply flawed.
 

PA: A Victory for Gun Rights

Last week, a Pennsylvania judge decided to actually follow the law and find David Ross not guilty for the alleged crime of possessing a weapon on airport property.

You see, Pennsylvania state law protects the right to open carry outside the secured areas at the airport.

So Mr. Ross was acting well within the law when he removed his handgun from his luggage and began to holster it as he walked out of the airport.

But an officer of the Allegheny County Police Department took issue with a civilian attempting to keep and bear arms.
 

Gun prohibitionists reveal strategy of upcoming attack

A widely published Associated Press story on the rise in police gun-related fatalities this year, along with a now-questionable opinion poll that suggested National Rifle Association members support some gun control measures has – perhaps unintentionally – revealed how gun prohibitionists plan to attack gun rights in 2010.

Over the weekend, the Associated Press story ran in several publications, including the Seattle Times, which added some of its own material relating to recent police slayings in Seattle and Parkland. The story noted that this year has seen a spike in shooting deaths of police officers, with 47 so far this year as opposed to 38 for the same period in 2008.
 

CO: The Right to Bear Arms at CSU

This seems to be one of the most talked about debates lately at Colorado State University. All day cares, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and the majority of colleges are gun-free zones. Not here. Currently, it is allowed for permit carriers with concealed weapons to carry handguns while on the Colorado State University campus. Many are unaware of this policy, and many are unsure what to think of it. However, according to the students, it needs to stay. Just recently, on Wednesday December 2nd 2009, the Associate Students of CSU passed a vote in favor for keeping the existing policy on concealed weapon carry on campus 21-3, with one senator abstaining.
 

WI: Conservative Leaders Urge Rejection of Louis Butler Nomination

Louis Butler opposes rights of gun owners. The right to bear arms in the Wisconsin Constitution expressly notes that this right is for personal security and "any other lawful purpose." In State v. Fischer, Justice Butler was the deciding vote in 2006 to hold that a Wisconsin statute barring carrying a concealed weapon for any purpose, at any time, including in a vehicle, does not violate this right to personal security that the voters of Wisconsin chose to expressly protect in their state constitution. After the ... Heller case upholding Second Amendment gun rights in 2008, Louis Butler spoke at an Obama for President fundraiser and specifically mentioned "gun control" as an issue that potential Obama appointees would impact.
 

Interlocks: Things that need inventing

Glock firearms introduced their new GLOCK IL 9mm handgun last week, the first one that’s compliant with new government regulations requiring user-interlock technology to inhibit intoxicated individuals from getting behind the trigger.

“Sobering firepower” is how Deutsch-Wagram, the Austrian-based company, described the weapon in full-page ads in Guns & Ammo and Alternative Lifestyles magazines.

The new pistol has a safety device that requires the user to blow in the barrel. If the user is legally sober, the safety is released after 10 seconds.

The Kent man who took the city of Seattle and its mayor to court over the city's gun ban has upped the ante.

Robert C. Warden filed a motion for a preliminary injunction ordering the defendants to stop enforcing the ban until a final decision is made in his civil suit.

Last month Warden filed a complaint against the Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels and the city itself in U.S. District Court, alleging the city's gun ban defies his constitutional right to bear arms.

Gun rights supporters want to shoot down two proposed ordinances that would require gun owners in unincorporated San Mateo County to report lost or missing guns and further restrict firearms dealers.

At its meeting today, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors will consider approving the two ordinances — a move the National Rifle Association has threatened to counter by suing.

In Tennessee, politicians routinely swear an oath to "support and defend" both the Tennessee and United States Constitutions, then vote contrary to the plain language reading of the 2nd Amendment. What part of "shall not be infringed" don't they understand?

Last year, The Supreme Court held that the 2nd applies to Federal enclaves in the Heller ruling. But, it has not yet incorporated the 2nd outside of Federal enclaves. Next spring, the Supremes will hear the McDonald Case, and predictions are that the 2nd will take its rightful place among the other amendments. Alan Gottlieb, of the Second Amendment Foundation, says,

We're gonna win!

In Arizona alone there are 48 Firearm related statutes this does not include Federal, or other states this is JUST Arizona. Feel free to check this FACT- btw that is "gun control." Arizona also allows the legal defense of ones life, home, vehicle and family (what is known as the Amended Castle Doctrine)-
California has over 50 with a new one that has not made it on to the books yet, and their violent crime rate is higher than Arizona...(California does NOT allow the legal defense of certain items with regards to what is known as the Castle Doctrine.)

It has become apparent over the last 20 years that the people of this state have forgotten their very rights of which this country was founded.

In this coming year, the gun rights advocates in this state are uniting in a movement that will campaign against any state representative, senator or legislator who does not support an individual's God-given right to keep and bear arms or their God-given right to self-defense.

That's right, a campaign against incumbents and candidates who do not support these rights.
 

GA: MARTA crime rate falls in wake of gun law

Today the Atlanta Gun Rights Examiner brings you a story you are not going to see anywhere else.

The Georgia General Assembly passed HB 89 in 2008, which made criminal prohibitions on carrying firearms on public transportation . . . inapplicable to Georgians possessing a firearms license. . . .

Beverly Scott, MARTA's general manager, called the bill "vigilantism."

. . . "a recipe for disaster."


Murders drop to zero

In 2007, MARTA had two murders occur on its property. In 2008, the year the new law took effect and peaceable citizens began lawfully carrying firearms on MARTA trains and busses, the number of murders dropped to zero, and there has not been a murder reported on the system since. . . .
