"Within minutes of the announcement by the Supreme Court on Nov. 20 that it will hear the appeal in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller -- the case that could provide a landmark ruling that defines the Second Amendment as an individual right -- the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence sent out an urgent appeal for $50,000 in contributions."

"The money, said the Brady Campaign, would go directly to the Brady Gun Law Defense Fund, 'to protect America’s gun laws.'"

"'If the Supreme Court does not reverse the federal appeals court decision,' the appeal lamented, 'gun laws everywhere could be at risk.'"

"The collective ho-hum reaction from the firearms civil rights community to the alarmist appeal was pretty much, 'So, what’s your point?'" ...

"Here is an open letter from Bill Akins of Akins Accelerator, this week the Tampa Tribune ran the following story on his story."

"My fellow Americans."

"Let me draw your attention to a process known as bump firing which is exactly what my stock allows you to do except my stock stays stationary whereas in bump firing the entire firearm including the stock moves."

"Bumpfiring uses no devices of any kind. It is a skill or knack as it were, that the shooter learns. Before I go into it, I would like to mention that if you read the illegal BATFE 2006-02 ruling that bans my accelerator device, that same ruling actually bans the process of bump firing and therefore any semi automatic capable of bump firing. ..." ...

"I've talked here about contacting the NRA (to ask for their opposition to 'Maximum Mike's' appointment as head of the BATFE), and here (about pushing for 'gun-free zone liability' laws), and suggested using the NRA's 'Contact Us' form."

"To my distinct annoyance, I have not been able to cajole a response out of them. Sebastian, at Snowflakes in Hell, rather than sitting and stewing about it like I've been doing, found out why:" ...

"Just so you and others who usually contact NRA for legislative and political matters are aware, the direct (and recommended) ILA e-mail address is ila-contact@nrahq.org.'"

"Constitutional Law Scholars from law schools across the country will reflect on the Second Amendment and the Supreme Court petition for a writ of certiorari in District of Columbia v. Heller. This program will occur on Saturday, January 5, from 8:30-10:15 a.m. during the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Annual Meeting in New York, New York, drawing over 3,500 law faculty."

"Not since 1939 has the Supreme Court directly addressed the meaning of the Second Amendment. Following more than two decades of renewed scholarly attention, the lower courts have been grappling with whether the Amendment secures a collective or an individual right, and if the latter, to what extent the right is subject to reasonable restrictions. ..." ...

"Two steely-eyed men walk out in a dusty street as the frightened town folk run for cover. We see the determination in the men’s faces, their fingers twitching as they reassuring touch the hammer of their six-shooter. Suddenly the guns leave their leather holsters and one of the men drops to the ground- dead because his draw was tad slower than his adversary. This has been the scene of hundreds of western movies, novels, and even biographies of real gunfighters. We know the characters, but know very little about these weapons of death. The Guns of the Gunfighter Lawmen, Outlaws, and Hollywood Cowboys written by Doc O’Meara published by Krause Publications tells just about everything, one would want to know about these guns." ...

"Chicago and New York are about to close out 2007 with the lowest number of homicides in more than 40 years, while cities such as Baltimore, Atlanta and Miami have seen killings go up because of what police say is a surge in guns and gang violence." ...

"Atlanta ... attributed some of the increase to a New Orleans-based gang that moved into town after Hurricane Katrina. ..."

"In Miami, authorities say the proliferation of assault weapons led to an increase in killings ..."

"'You just pull a trigger and 20 or 30 rounds come in a second and in those 20 rounds you're sure to hit your intended target and some innocent bystanders, totally unlike a firearm that is just one bullet every time you pull the trigger,' Miami Police spokesman Willie Moreno said." ...

"In the wake of two mass shootings in Colorado, it is no surprise that the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence is calling for more gun control. They start by falsely claiming that the now expired 1994 'Assault Weapons' ban could have prevent both shootings. Not true, as both the weapons used in the shootings in Omaha and Colorado would not have been banned under the provisions of 1994 ban. The WASR AK-47 style gun used in the Nebraska shooting is a direct result of the ban ... This is a typical reaction to such shootings and is to be expected."

"In Texas last month, a man spotted two burglars carrying items from his neighbor’s house. After calling police, he grabbed his shotgun and killed the burglars."

"A debate still rages over whether that was legal under the state's new 'castle doctrine' law, which allows lethal force to defend one's home."

"A similar Missouri law enacted this year appears to allow killings like those, according to judges and lawyers. Advocates praise it as allowing innocent people to defend themselves against criminals. Opponents fear it could cause unnecessary deaths, such as killings of petty thieves."

"Under a most basic reading, it allows carte blanche to kill anyone unlawfully entering a house or a car or committing a forcible felony ..." ...

"Republican Mike Huckabee took his presidential campaign for a quick pheasant-hunting expedition in Iowa on Wednesday, and at one point, a reporter asked why he hadn't invited sporting enthusiast Dick Cheney along. 'Because I want to survive all the way through this,' Huckabee replied, in a chuckling dig at the vice president's accidental shooting of a quail-hunting partner last year."

"Any good sportsman, though, couldn’t miss a distinctly Cheneyesque moment in the press accounts of the former ... hunt: At one point, Huckabee's party turned toward a cluster of reporters and cameramen and, when they kicked up a pheasant, fired shotgun blasts over the group's heads."

"This, friends, is dangerously bad hunting form." ...

A third senator, David Vitter, R-La., has added a third hold on federal prosecutor Michael Sullivan, giving more fodder to Horsley's Web site." ...

"Not all the Republican politicians that Horsley has contacted have given him a favorable response. And Sullivan, himself a Republican whose assistant promised Horsley months ago he'd receive a call, never responded."

"While a recent letter writer was essentially correct ('Tell kids not to have sex,' The News, Monday), one of her analogies was incorrect."

"When my sister and I were children, there were always loaded guns in the house. They were not in lock boxes nor did they have trigger locks. Such things didn't exist back then. We were both taught not only how to fire the guns correctly, but more important, how to respect the weapons and the power they represented." ...
