"If everything goes according to current schedule, attorneys for the Second Amendment Foundation and [NRA] will be in court on Feb. 19, 2010 for what they hope will be a smack-down of Seattle’s gun ban in city parks and recreation facilities."

"The case will go before King County Superior Court Judge Greg Canova. Currently in the 'discovery' phase, ... the lawsuit is on schedule and he believes the case is solid."

"Two key plaintiffs have had encounters that clearly erase any doubts about 'standing' and one of those incidents belongs in the 'You're Not Going to Believe This!' realm. Last month, Seattleite Ray Carter visited the Alki Community Center packing a pistol and he was promptly asked to leave." ...

"Here's the sixth entry in my attempt to come up with a daily suggestion for gun owners as part of Examiner.com's New Year's resolution special project between Dec. 11 and Jan. 1."

"I will obtain videos that advocate the right to keep and bear arms and share them with others."

"Educating yourself is necessary and fine, but why not become a force multiplier and share them with others? You could just show them to friends who come over, or set aside time at gun club meetings, or even get a room at the library and do a special showing for the public."

"Which videos? Here are a few suggestions to start your collection:" ...

"1) The hospital did not have permission to use our name in their promotion.
2) The hospital bought Kohl's gift cards on their own.
3) This is not a Kohl's program or sponsorship."

The consequences of affiliation can be worked to advantage.

"If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't."

"The simplest and most obvious diagnosis is probably right."

"If you smell a rat, you probably have rats."

"There are a number of ways of saying the same thing, and just as there are dozens of ways of saying I Love You, there are dozens of ways of saying how you hate America and the idea that the people are the sovereign. Gun control is one of them. There is no such thing as sensible gun laws because there is no such thing as a legal challenge of the sovereign. Certain areas can be regulated, other areas cannot. The dispute is over one which cannot." ...

"OMG! Only HOW many shopping days 'til Christmas?"

"If there's a shooter as yet unaccounted for on your Christmas shopping list, there's still time. For young folks, there are scaled down sets of ear and eye protection. THIS set of safety glasses and muffs for junior shooters is 30 bucks from that old standby source, Brownell's. Might find 'em at your local gun shop and save waiting time."

"If a reindeer hunting rifle is too pricy for the gift budget, how about some nice handles for the giftee’s sidearm? Check out these handsome stocks I just got from Eagle Grips for a favorite six-shooter." ...

NRA members smarter than newspaper writers

"Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne Jr.'s latest op-ed piece deals with guns and has been reprinted in many papers including the Columbus Dispatch under the heading, 'Members of the NRA wiser than leaders.'"

"It is another version of old argument that gun owners want reasonable restrictions on guns to protect our society from criminals killing people, but the evil NRA empire does not care about police or death rates and simply imposes its will on law-makers who would instantly be thrown from office if they ever cross the NRA in the slightest regard. It is pure hogwash, but if your only education comes from 'news' papers than it will all sound familiar to you." ...

... "Did you know that the possession of small amounts of Marijuana has been decriminalized in Ohio for many years? (in some local Ohio jurisdictions it is still a jailable crime ...). This means that in most jurisdictions in Ohio, a person charged with possession of less than 100 grams of marijuana, if he or she pleads no contest or is otherwise found guilty, no jail sentence is permitted, only a fine of $100 maximum, plus court costs. The charge is a 'minor misdemeanor', and by definition in the Ohio Revised Code, not a criminal offense. No person in Ohio, who has ever had any drug conviction, minor misdemeanor, misdemeanor, or felony, is permitted to possess a gun at any time. Violation of this prohibition is a serious felony." ...

"Do you know where your carry pistol and ammunition impact on a IDPA target at 50 yards?"

"What about 100 yards?"

"Have you tried to find out?"

"Suggestion:"

"- From a prone or other stable position, fire five rounds, slow fire, at an IDPA target at 50 yards, using a high center-mass hold."

"- After checking your target, adjust your point of aim and fire five more slow-fire rounds."

"- Check your target again and repeat, changing your point of aim as necessary, until your rounds are all impacting the target in the high center-mass area. ..."

"- Once you can keep all five rounds in the high center-mass area, repeat this exercise with your target located at 100 yards." ...

"A 2006 endorsement and robocall from the Brady Campaign isn't the kind of thing Republican Danny Tarkanian wants coming up in his 2010 bid to unseat Nevada's senior Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat who won an endorsement from the National Rifle Association in his last election."

"But Mr. Tarkanian has only one person to blame: his mom."

"The Tarkanian campaign initially dismissed questions about the little-noticed 2006 Brady Campaign endorsement Mr. Tarkanian received in his unsuccessful race for secretary of state in 2006. ... The Brady Campaign also recorded robocalls urging Nevada voters to support him. (Audio script transcribed below). Tarkanian Campaign Manager James Fisfis suggested it was a dirty campaign tactic ..." ...

"Christopher Drew had every intention of getting arrested. ..."

"The artist was confronted by Chicago police and arrested on December 3. Because he recorded the entire incident, on the understandable assumption that the reasons the officers gave for arresting him may prove useful to his follow-up lawsuit, Drew was also charged with 'felony eavesdropping.'"

"Generally speaking, it's not a crime to record an on-duty police officer in a public space. In fact, with just a few exceptions ... you can photograph and/or record anything and anyone in a public space. But there are still too many stories of people being arrested, intimidated, or detained for turning their lenses on cops." ...

"'Do it. My family are cops,' Cujdik said ..." ...

"Before Westberry could finish dialing 9-1-1 on his cell phone, Cujdik stepped through the doorway and punched him in the throat ..."

"That's when Westberry pulled out his gun and Cujdik fled ..."

"Westberry never fired the gun. In fact, Westberry suffered the only injury when Cujdik staggered him with a punch. But rather than arrest Cujdik, a convicted drug dealer, authorities slapped Westberry with a slew of criminal charges ..." ...

"Someone at the domicile made the fatal mistake of calling the police to report that Hicks had a 'weapon' — a pair of sewing scissors."

"When Chandler and Officer Rebecca Kenney arrived, Hicks was prone on her bed. ... Chandler then pressed the electro-shock torture device directly against Hicks's skin to operate it in 'drive-stun mode.'"

"Not surprisingly, this assault enraged Hicks, who reportedly got off the bed and said, 'I'm going to kill you or you're going to have to kill me.' ..." ...

"U.S. District Court has dismissed a lawsuit challenging an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department policy that requires an owner to be fingerprinted and fill out a form in order to retrieve a confiscated firearm."

"Grady Scott, who filed the suit in November 2008, had his .38-caliber handgun and an SKS assault rifle seized during a search of his home by police. His attorney has said officers used a warrant that listed the wrong address, but city attorneys dispute it was a mistaken search. When Scott asked for his guns back, he refused to comply with IMPD's requirement that he be fingerprinted." ...
