The hypocrisy of the advocates of gun control never ceased to amaze me. In the summer of 1988 the late syndicated columnist Carl Rowan, an advocate for banning handguns in the whole United States, did something that turned the town on its head. He shot a teenager who had climbed his security fence and was swimming in his pool at his home in Washington D.C. (See Rowan Case and the Need to Bear Arms [Wall Street Journal, June 24, 1988])"

"About the same time as this shooting, another incident happened in D.C. But this time, the incident did not make the news." ...

"I came across these reasonable comments from Paul Helmke ... president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence:"

"...Concerns for gun violence prevention and public safety should not be categorized as pro-gun versus anti-gun."

"What’s 'anti-gun' about wanting background checks to make sure that those with criminal records aren’t buying guns legally?"

"What’s 'anti-gun' about restricting bulk sales of handguns, a sure sign that someone wants to sell those guns illegally on the secondary market?"

"Why isn’t it 'pro-gun' to want to crack down on the 1 percent of gun dealers who sell 57 percent of the guns that end up being used illegally; or to support more financing for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives?" ...

"A man won't be tried on murder charges after he shot and killed a young father late Tuesday night, according to the Rock Hill Solicitor's Office."

"Family members say 21-year-old Lionel Chiles went to confront Rick Hall outside a house on Calhoun Street, and then attacked him. Hall fired a shot, hitting Chiles in the neck." ...

"Hall's father says his son was only defending himself."

"'He's innocent. It was self defense,' he said. 'It was self defense; he was just protecting himself.'"

"The solicitor’s office agreed on Wednesday afternoon, and police dropped murder charges against Hall."

"Officers say Chiles was unarmed, but because the attack happened on Hall's property, he was allowed to defend himself." ...

"Steve Ariens loves walking his dog. But he said the walks aren’t as enjoyable as they used to be."

"Ariens said he is now forced to carry a 9-millimeter pistol with him in fear that he, and his dog, will be attacked by wolf-dog hybrids he says are running loose in his neighborhood."

"Ariens is not alone. Several residents also expressed fear and concerns at Tuesday's Floyd County Commissioner’s meeting. They were there to ask the commissioners to pass an ordinance banning or restricting animals such as wolf-dog hybrids they consider dangerous."

"'If these dogs get in my yard, you won’t need an ordinance,' Ariens said." ...

"In my article last week, I explained how the Ohio House of Representatives voted to override Governor Taft's veto of House Bill 347. Last Tuesday, the Ohio Senate followed our lead and also voted to override Taft's veto ..."

"I am extremely pleased that this legislation will now become law. It means that every Ohioan who becomes licensed through the state may carry a firearm to protect themselves and their families. My good friends at the National Rifle Association sent me a letter last week thanking me for being a co-sponsor and for my leadership in getting HB 347 passed. The right to firearm ownership and self defense is a fundamental liberty to which our constitutional right to bear arms is directly linked!" ...

"A Richfield police detective was sentenced Tuesday to two years in federal prison for giving law enforcement information about drug customers to a known drug dealer, the U.S. Attorney's Office said, according to the Associated Press." ...

"Prosecutors said the drug dealer contacted the detective twice in September, worried that two of his customers might be working with law enforcement. On both occasions, the dealer asked Nielsen to obtain information about those customers."

"Nielsen then ordered unknowing police department employees to look up the names of two customers in various law enforcement databases, including one that the FBI maintains outside of Minnesota. He then passed the information along to the dealer, according to court documents."

"Patricia Bailey, who is the sister of John Bailey, also was charged with obstruction of justice, a fifth-degree felony. Stanforth said she prevented the other deputies from removing all the guns from her brother's house." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A former Troup police chief has been sentenced to the maximum ten years in prison in a theft and seized evidence tampering case.

A judge in Tyler also ordered 60-year-old Chester Kennedy to pay a $5,000 fine.

The two sentences will be served concurrently.

Kennedy will be eligible for parole after serving two and a-half years behind bars.

Kennedy was convicted last month of theft for taking a pistol from the department and of tampering with physical evidence for giving a 30-pack of beer to an officer.

Kennedy was acquitted of three additional tampering charges.

Kennedy was arrested in March and later fired. He had served as Troup police chief for more than 12 years.

He was sentenced Monday.

"I disagree with The Plain Dealer editorial board's view that local governments should be able to impose gun-control ordinances."

"Section 1.04 of the Ohio Constitution guarantees Ohioans' right to bear arms. Why should the residents of big cities like Cleveland and Columbus enjoy this right any less than other Ohioans? Do we expect them to be less law abiding? If so, that's clearly prejudiced and another example of the 'soft bigotry of low expectations.'"

"... Cities don't have rights, per se; citizens have rights. The purpose of a written constitution is to guarantee these rights. Ohio's legislators are merely doing their duty ..."

"When our Founding Fathers set out to establish the governing laws of this nation, much debate centered on the importance of individual freedom."

"These early leaders recognized that in order to build and maintain a successful society, government power must be limited, citizens must be engaged and every person should be guaranteed certain unalienable rights."

"While much has changed ... since America was founded, what has provided the foundation for our country to grow and prosper is a continued commitment to these ideals and a respect for the rights of every citizen."

"... In particular, a number of anti-gun activists have fought hard over the years to place restrictions on our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms." ...

"If you are Christmas shopper, and aren't done, the next few days could be pretty stressful."

"The truth is, anybody who's been Christmas shopping has probably run into a little stress and the credit card bills haven't even arrived yet. With all these crowds, last minute sales, and maxed out credit cards, stress is just one way to describe what many of us are feeling."

"One local company has been advertising a way to relieve that stress that's not a massage. And boy, it has something to calm you down." ...

"Impact Guns in Kearns is actually advertising a way to beat that stress with a fully loaded clip of grinch-defeating ammunition."

"For some, it's better than migraine medicine." ...

... "The statements by these gentlemen are oxymoronic. What gall these two have claiming their interpretation of home rule has something to do with individual rights, when the general laws they are complaining about, passed by the General Assembly, give individuals more freedom. These two despots lose power, not rights, when our government fulfills its role as a republic."

"Ohioans do not want the Statehouse to have a majority of these two kinds of politicians, who want to usurp our republic by establishing a City-State system and they vote accordingly. Ohioans ... do not want to be arrested because they were not aware of all the firearms laws of every city through which they drive." ...

"To the editor:"

"The proposal to locate an 81-child daycare facility on Strawberry Hill Road raises many concerns—traffic and safety issues ... the suitability of a large commercial establishment in a residential neighborhood, the “shoehorning” of the proposed building onto a small plot of land, and the fact that a large number of new daycare slots are scheduled to open soon just a few miles away." ...

"One of the abutters is the Concord Rod and Gun Club, a sportsman’s club that was established in 1926 and offers a wide range of facilities and activities throughout the year. Rod and Gun Club programs include archery, trap, and pistol shooting, as well as private and group Firearms Safety Training Courses. ..." ...

"THE February shooting death of Winnipeg grocery clerk Edwin Yue during a botched robbery inside his family's store was an 'execution' which must be treated as murder, the Crown said Tuesday."

"But defence lawyers representing accused killer David Edward Cote claim the parole violator should be acquitted because his own life was in danger and he had no choice but to fire his gun."

"While admitting some may see their defence as 'ludicrous', the lawyers claim Yue set a "trap" for Cote by locking him in the store and then attempting to injure or kill him by repeatedly swinging a baseball bat."

"Cote -- who has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder -- had no choice but to defend himself, his lawyers said." ...

"NINE out of 10 voters in a News online poll backed MP Shailesh Vara's bid to give stronger rights to people who confront intruders in their own homes."

"The Cambridgeshire North West MP hailed the poll result as 'excellent news' that will spur him on to get his Private Members Bill through Parliament."

"It would amend the existing law so that only those deemed to have used 'grossly disproportionate force' in defence of their property or loved ones would face prosecution."

"Currently those defending themselves and their property can use 'reasonable force' - but critics say this is not clearly defined and has led to people being prosecuted when acting against intruders." ...
