NH: GOP seeks to expand N.H. deadly force law

Four years ago, Governor John Lynch blocked efforts by gun rights advocates to expand a person’s right to use deadly force in self-defense without first attempting to retreat.

When the legislation comes back next year, Lynch may not be able to stop its passage.

In his veto message blocking the 2006 gun bill, Lynch, a Democrat, said he wanted to avoid a law that “would authorize any shopper to instantly shoot and kill a thief who had grabbed or tugged at the shopper’s purse or briefcase, regardless of how many shoppers might be placed in harm’s way by such actions.’’

Washington, who declined to release the shooter’s name because he was not charged, said it appears the man was defending himself based on the trajectory of the single shot, which struck the bear in the head.

“It appears to be a situation where the bear was running through the woods. ... It (the shot) indicated the bear was coming right toward him,” Washington said. “It was a straight on shot to the head.”

It’s believed the bear was shot from a distance of less than 30 feet, Washington said.

Speaking of taxing, the subject was “How free should you feel?” Taxes are now at an all-time high, with more to come. Your land, something that was sacrosanct to our forefathers, can now be confiscated by the government from a person and given to a corporation if more taxes can be obtained – this is not eminent domain. Try to buy a gun now compared with years past. The government, especially California, has all but buried the Second Amendment with all the fees, regulations and petty laws.

From 2007 to 2009, six police officers from this industrial city were shot with guns that share a troubling history: All were purchased at a single gun shop just across the city line.

Police have long known that Badger Guns, Badger Outdoors and related businesses at the same location in West Milwaukee have ranked in the top 10 nationally among shops that sell guns that wind up being used in a crime.

Now four of the six officers wounded in shootings are filing civil suits seeking monetary damages against the gun shop for lax handling of transactions.

Perry Bendelewski of Magnolia is an ardent waterfowl hunter. ... It’s nothing for him to run through a case of ammo in weeks instead of months like most waterfowling fanatics might. From sea ducks to snow geese, if the season is in, Perry is hunting them.

He came by the shop with his Beretta Xtrema last week to show me a barrel that had been blown apart. Assuring me that it did not happen on the first shot (as most obstructed barrels do) this one had become unglued in the middle of the hunt. The ventilated rib was ripped off and a 12-inch aneurysm had ruptured right in front of the forearm lug. I asked what he’d been shooting and he said that he was using factory 3.5-inch magnum shells that the gun is designed for.
 

AZ: Lawmaker wants to allow college faculty to carry guns

Saying everyone but criminals will be safer, a veteran legislator wants to let qualified faculty carry guns on university and community college campuses.

Sen. Jack Harper, R-Surprise, said Wednesday there has been a history of situations where someone with a grudge comes onto a campus, goes into a classroom and starts shooting. He said the current prohibition against weapons on campus -- one which the criminal has ignored -- leaves the teacher and student defenseless.

But Harper isn't stopping with arming the faculty. He is crafting a separate measure to allow students with certain training to also arm themselves.

The two were at the home of Dustin's family and were on leave from their respective military branches of service -- Navy for Provost and Army for Jakes.

The confrontation apparently escalated into a physical fight, and with Jakes in a sling from recent shoulder surgery, he could not defend himself from the attack and pointed a handgun at Provost, according to the PCSO.

...

Gaffney said the case will be looked at by the department's Criminal Investigations Bureau and sent to the County Attorney's Office for review, but that it appears Jakes fired the handgun at Provost in self defense.

Ed.: Go Army! Oh, wait, is that football? :-)

But on Dec. 10, Dellerman said, he had no choice.

He walked down the stairs, holding his handgun in front of him. In his living room, curtains drawn to save heat, he saw three tall men.

"And then I heard something like 'Get him!' and they started coming at me," he said.

Dellerman fired. Five bullet holes were later found in his floor, window and armoire, he said. He hit all three of the men, he would later learn.

"I was in fear for my life," he said. "I am not someone who gets into gunfights. I am not someone that gets into fights, period. But my life was being threatened."

Americans bought about 15 million guns and 16 billion bullets in 2010, “more than 21 of the world’s standing armies combined, “ brags AmmoLand a national ammunition seller that used the FBI’s National Criminal Background Check system (NCIS) to gage this rise in gun ownership nationwide.

At the same time, the National Rifle Association (NRA) estimates “80 million gun owners in America today.” The NRA also notes that owning a gun is at an all time high, and points to 9/11 and the rise of the terrorist threat as “good reasons for Americans to stay armed.”

Ed.: There is a humorous anecdote at the end of the story.

The word “people” is used in the preamble and in the Second Amendment to describe collective rights. Certainly, the preamble does not convey an “individual” right to establish a Constitution. The Fifth Amendment makes clear the distinction between collective and individual rights by referring to the rights of each “person.”

Since pro soccer is on winter break in Germany, the Christmas Eve cave-in isn’t causing huge problems in that regard. But they did have to cancel the World Biathlon Challenge, which was awesomely scheduled to be held indoors. ...

At this point you’re probably asking yourself: Indoor biathlon? Doesn’t this sport include rifle shooting?

A: Yes. But they were going to use a laser shooting system, in which rifles were rigged to make the same sound as regular guns, but only shoot light. From what I understand, however, the WBC has been held in this arena since 2002, and they used to use real guns.
 

Texas city U.S. safest, despite Mexico drug war next door

Last month El Paso, a sprawling southwest Texas city of 700,000 residents, was named the safest city of its size in the United States for the first time, and it is on track to close out 2010 with just five murders.

But just over the shallow concrete trench of the Rio Grande in Ciudad Juarez, more than 3,000 people have been tortured, shot and blasted to death in gang warfare this year, clinching its grim reputation as the world's most dangerous city.

The shocking contrast is one of the most puzzling aspects of security on the U.S.- Mexico border, where the fear of drug anarchy spilling over from Mexico makes Americans and their politicians fretful.
 

ABC Pushes Gun Control Documentary, Absurdly Touts Work of the Brady Campaign as 'Not Anti-Gun'

According to Good Morning America's Robin Roberts on Monday, the efforts of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence aren't "anti-gun." The morning show co-host interviewed Colin Goddard, the group's assistant director of legislative affairs, and promoted a new documentary on the "gun show loophole."

Colin Goddard survived the massacre at Virginia Tech and now works for the aggressively anti-Second Amendment organization. Yet, while talking to Goddard, she portrayed the group's work as just common sense. She exclaimed, "Because you're not anti-gun."

Even McDonald v. Chicago, which applied the Second Amendment right to bear arms against state and local firearms regulation, was an example of restraint, McConnell said, because the Court used the traditional due process clause rationale rather than the more exotic privileges or immunities clause.

A lawyer for a Nashville gun store says his client intends to keep the business open, despite no longer being allowed to sell guns.

Gun City lost its license to sell firearms at the end of November, reported The Tennessean.

Attorney Richard Gardiner of Fairfax, Va., who represented owner Cindy Arp as she pursued an appeal in federal court, said the store can still sell ammunition and accessories and can continue to operate a shooting range.

Los Angeles police and county sheriff's deputies warned the public Monday to resist ringing in the New Year with celebratory gunfire, which can have dangerous consequences.

...

In Atlanta last year, a 4-year-old boy was killed by a falling bullet on New Year's Eve.

Los Angeles has come a long way since the 1990s. In 1998, two people were killed by falling bullets on New Year's Day and, on July 4, 1999, a 9-year-old boy lost his life the same way.

Ed.: Grrr. 'Falling' bullets don't have sufficient momentum to kill. Only bullets that maintain a ballistic path (i.e., parabolic) can maintain sufficient momentum to kill. I wish more reporters had passed high school physics.
