"DA in Texas, gets us rational review for gun right cases. So much for the conservative 5th circuit. I like the part when they say..if it was a fundamental right..they would have said so a couple of cases ago."
 

'Shooting' ad in bad taste

We all spend countless hours toiling and searching for the perfect Christmas gift, but I was appalled to see an ad in The Tribune to "Give the Gift of Shooting."

I can defend anyone's right to free speech, but bad taste and bad judgment by a local retailer at the holidays should not be allowed.

Promoting hunting and self-defense is a far cry from promoting shooting. I would hope that those who saw this ad were as shocked and alarmed as I was and will act to inform The Tribune of their lack of scrutiny. This is a message that does not need to be promoted ever, let alone at the holiday season.

Non-lethal self-protection with a stun gun

Everyone in the U.S. has a constitutional right to bear arms, but what if you don't want to pack a lethal weapon for self-protection?

You could join a martial arts class, learn how to box or take up running to flee from danger. Or, you could be like teen sleuth Veronica Mars on the CW show -- and carry a civilian Taser stun gun.

The stun gun of choice, the M18 Advanced Taser, is made by Scottsdale-Ariz.-based Taser International Inc.

The state legislature will return on January 8 for the first day of the 2007-08 session. Almost immediately thereafter comes the annual flood of anti-gun bills being introduced and re-introduced from previous years. Gun owners need to understand is that in order to affect the legislative process, they need to be involved in the political process.

"...The largest liberty is to be maintained in the discussion of the acts of the federal government; but there is no appeal from its laws, except to the various branches of that government itself, or to the people...."

"The sovereignty of the States" is the language of the confederacy, and not the language of the Constitution. The latter contains the emphatic words, "The Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof, and all treaties made or which shall be made under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land, and the judges in every State shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding."

President Reagan knew value of gun ownership History will remember Ronald Wilson Reagan as one of America’s greatest presidents, but long before he was recognized as the man who won the Cold War, or was the hero of countless “B” movies, he was a genuine hero to a woman named Melba King.
 

SD: No one gains from hiding gun files from public

Under the guise of protecting the privacy of those granted government sanction to carry a hangun [sic], a bill closing public access to concealed weapons permits won overwhelming approval this year in the Legislature. The law, effective July 1, drew hardly a whimper of protest from any quarter.

Just because something's popular doesn't make it right. And the Argus Leader did what any decent newspaper would do: In the months before the law went into effect, we deployed staffers to the office of Secretary of State Chris Nelson, the repository of more than 41,000 active weapons permits, to rescue that information from permanent seal.
 

UT: Ban guns from all schools

The thought of a teacher at the chalkboard lecturing with a firearm at the hip sends chills down the spine. If a certain proposal is approved, that thought could become a reality.

The Utah Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (POST) hasn't taken action on a plan that would allow teachers with the appropriate gun training to become "special function officers." Its inaction should stay that way and the plan be abandoned altogether. Utah law already permits people to carry concealed weapons into schools and other venues.

NY: Some lawmakers ready to tighten tracking of pistol permits

New York state needs to do a better job of keeping pistol permit records up-to-date, Albany lawmakers from the Lower Hudson Valley told The Journal News. They were responding to a Dec. 10 report by the newspaper that found that thousands of registered handguns were unaccounted for in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam because the list of permit holders is not kept current. In particular, the newspaper found that there is no system to alert authorities when a permit holder dies, leaving it up to an "honor system" that calls on the family itself to notify officials that a permit is no longer active.

When his second child was born two years ago, Steve Michaels buried his gun under 2 feet of dirt because he didn't know what else to do with it. The pistol he had bought as a young man for $250 seemed suddenly more like a danger than protection. He wanted it gone. On Saturday, Michaels, 30, finally found a home for the weapon. Wrapped in a plastic bag, he handed it to Chicago police officers at Greater Salem Baptist Church on West 71st Street, and they gave him a $50 gift card in return.
 

SD: South Dakotans No. 1 in permits to conceal guns

More than 41,000 South Dakotans have permits to carry handguns or conceal them in their cars - the highest rate per capita in the nation, an Argus Leader analysis shows. Records compiled from the state - and now barred from public view, under a law passed this year by the Legislature - show that 7.4 percent of South Dakota adults had such a permit as of June 30. Next closest are Indiana and Pennsylvania, with 6.4 percent of adults licensed to carry a handgun.

As a "peace dividend" earned from years of plummeting crime, it is time to strongly consider adjusting police firepower. Specifically, we should think about trading the semiautomatic 9-mm. weapon cops currently carry - and their 16-round magazines - for a modified version of that weapon that fires fewer shots per magazine, or perhaps even for the traditional .38-caliber pistol police upgraded in the 1990s.
 

South Africa: Instant justice

Submitter's note: Notice how the anti-gun crowd and police try and use the tired American slogan when defending yourself: "You must not take the law into your own hands. Call and WAIT for the police." Notice how self defence is equated with EVIL VIGILANTISM by the liberal media here in South Africa. South Africans are not falling for it though. Note that Police Reservists are ordinary civilians using goverment guns to defend themselves.

This is what it has come to - while two would-be robbers lay dying in the street outside a Joburg restaurant this week, their potential victims looked on and laughed.

But the police warn people not to take the law into their own hands.

There are very few people up here who can describe how it feels to be cornered, with nowhere to run and no way to retreat from imminent violence.

...

When he was six or seven feet away, Bach drew his licensed .380-caliber revolver. "I kept telling him to stop or I'll shoot."

Bach fired one shot into Marion's chest, killing him.

The grand jury refused to indict him on manslaughter or murder charges. But he was so shaken by the shooting, he had to stop driving at night.

Elden Garrett, 77, lives in peaceful McCook County, which also happens to be the county with the most concealed pistol permits per capita in South Dakota.

...

Garrett said he uses his pistol for target shooting and for shooting the occasional rodent on his land. He said there is no connection between handguns and violence around here, as some in other parts of the country might believe.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws. AYN RAND
