"A gun-control group has agreed to pay a $26,000 fine for failing to properly disclose spending on mailings opposing two Republican House candidates, the Federal Election Commission said Thursday."

"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Voter Education Fund didn't report $111,777 in spending to oppose Kentucky Rep. Ernest Fletcher's election, nor did it report $99,731 in spending against Pennsylvania Rep. Pat Toomey, according to the FEC."

"The mailings were sent to voters shortly before the 2000 election. The spending was supposed to be reported by the Brady group's Voter Education Fund to the commission within 24 hours."

"Earlier this month, an 80-year-old man named Lester Campbell was mugged while riding the elevator to his Bronx apartment. The struggle went down like a bad transaction, with Mr. Campbell buying a bruised cheek and a bloodshot eye for the low, low price of $262 in cashed out Social Security. The thief might've made off with more, however, were it not for the fact Mr. Campbell was packing. Thrown to the ground, he fired a shot that bounced off the ceiling and sent the thief running like the coward his mother gave birth to."

"According to the local ABC news affiliate, Mr. Campbell now faces two misdemeanor charges: (1) For criminal -- i.e., unlicensed -- possession of the .38 caliber handgun he used to scare off his assailant; and (2) For the spare pistol cops found scouring his apartment later that day."

"Punished, in other words, for doing the authorities' job."
 

Supreme Court Denies Review of California Assault Weapons Ban

"CeaseFire Maryland, the state's leading gun violence prevention group, cheered the US Supreme Court's decision, announced yesterday (Monday), denying review of a ruling by a federal Appeals Court that affirmed California's Assault Weapons Ban (AWB), a state law barring the sale of new military-style semiautomatic guns. The Court's decision confirms that the Second Amendment to the US Constitution is a collective, not individual, right to own or possess firearms."

-------
SCOTUS' rejection, of course, confirms no such thing. But the anti's have never allowed such minutiae as the truth to get in the way of their vitriolic ranting.

It's curious.

If the gun control advocates are so sure of their absurd "collective rights" theory...

If they are so convinced that the Second Amendment does not protect the individual right to keep and bear arms...

Why are they celebrating SCOTUS' denial of certiorari? One would think that they would welcome the opportunity to prove their righteousness in front of the highest court in the land.

If they are so convinced they are correct, why are they so afraid to have the Supreme Court hear the case?

" 'Intelligence indicates terrorists are considering the use of improvised explosive devices (search) (IEDs) assembled onboard to hijack an aircraft or, alternatively, destroy it over heavily populated areas in the event of passenger or crew resistance,' the bulletin said."

"The FBI said that components of IEDs can be smuggled onto planes concealed in clothing or personal carry-on items like shampoo and medicine bottles, and then put together onboard."

Keeping you terrified certainly gives them an excuse to also keep you disarmed and subservient.

"...I recognized up to a dozen plain clothes and uniformed law enforcement personnel in the courtroom and hallways, this despite the fact that no one was admitted into the building without photo identification, bodily passage through a metal detector and personal effect passage through an x-ray machine. Even Judge Moran had two bodyguards in close proximity to him at all times, bodyguards I believed to be armed Special Agents from the Environmental Protection Agency. One agent seated himself directly behind my chair. The agent apparently had been instructed to watch me closely, since I am most definitely a threat to the environment, the environment of cheating and deceit that I have been trying to expose."
 

Liberals paved the way for the Ashcroft civil rights assault

"So in complaining about the civil rights abuses of the current administration, consider dear liberal that when you bludgeoned the Second Amendment to death by creating so many laws and regulations it is difficult to exercise the right to bear arms, you proved that a right enshrined in the Bill of Rights could be destroyed without actually repealing it. Thus you opened the door for other amendments to suffer a similar fate. So stop complaining about violations of freedom of speech, or habeas corpus, or speedy trial, or privacy, etc. You made it all possible to legislate them out of existence."

"When you ignored the Tenth Amendment and systematically forged a bloated, sprawling, out-of-control government to manage virtually everything in our lives in the name of helping the little guy or the environment, you made it possible for that same government to snoop on everything we are, control everything we do and take everything we own to do it. So stop complaining when that government invades your life."

"Akron police officer Kevin R. Davis, in plainclothes, was on his way to lunch Wednesday when his break turned into a bust." ...

"When HB12 passes, Rule One for would-be criminals will be: If you're planning a robbery, think twice. Almost ANYONE you consider making a target could be armed, not just off-duty police officers."

"This incident is a perfect example of why openly carrying a firearm is not nearly as effective a self-defense or crime deterrent as carrying it concealed (we're Ohioans For Concealed Carry for a reason - if open carry is the best choice, why do police departments advocate concealed carry for their off-duty officers?)."

"The time to start is when they're very young. Anytime they're around guns parents need to be talking to their kids about gun safety. Teaching kids that you don't play with guns, and horseplay can cause a tragedy. So, the earlier they start with them, the better off they are." ...

"The kid needs to know how the gun operates. Is it safe or is it not safe? He needs to know what the effects of shooting a firearm's going to do whether he's interested or not, he has to learn safety. If he never points that gun at something he's not willing to destroy then he can't have an accident."

"We're destined to continue arguing over the Second Amendment's wording and extent of our gun rights."

"The exact nature and extent of our constitutional right to own firearms remains debatable. It could be worse."

"The U.S. Supreme Court this week declined to consider an appeal of a California case that seemed tailor-made to settle the decades-old debate about the Second Amendment to the Constitution - whether the right to bear arms is an individual right or a collective one having to do with maintaining a militia for national defense. The case in question, Silveira v. Lockyer, involves a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of California's toughest-in-the-nation ban on assault weapons. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in this case that individual American citizens have no right to bear arms. Rather, the right belongs to the public in general for the purposes of national defense."

"The 9th Circuit Court's jurisdiction extends to Montana, so its ruling troubles us." ...

"Seventy-one-year-old Melvin Spaulding should receive a medal, not jail time for possibly saving his neighbor's life from the punks who very well might have killed him. He apparently warned the attackers three times before he opened fire. Even then, he didn't shoot to kill. I would have done the very same thing if my neighbor or my family were being attacked." ...

"When three young men are beating the hell out of a 63-year-old man, that is not a simple fistfight. If you want to talk about "excessive force," I'd say that's what they were using. No one has the right to put his hands on anyone else against that person's approval. I applaud the actions of Melvin Spaulding. He should be given a good citizen award." ...

WBEB staff said the station wouldn't run an ad critical of Specter. Lee has given $4,000 to Specter and his PAC in the past two years. Kurtz has contributed $2,000 to Specter."

NOTE: It's good that this man was armed, to protect his daughter, but if he'd been a citizen and not a government employee, he'd have either been unarmed or armed illegally -- because We The People have a tough time getting a "permit" to carry for self-defense in San Jose. Police officers can defend their daughters from attacking dogs, but citizens have to use their hands.

You may well remember the 71-year-old man who came to the aid of his neighbor, a 63-year-old who was getting beaten by three punks.

You may remember that the Pinellas County Sheriff's Department deputies arrested Mr. Melvin Spaulding, claiming he should have called 911 and waited as his friend was on the ground getting the snot kicked out of him.

Well, Mr. Spaulding has been released. But according to this report, he is no longer allowed to use his gun to defend himself. "Spaulding has a concealed weapons permit, but as part of his release he’s been told he cannot have a gun."

"As many as eight armed Mexican soldiers crossed the border near a tiny Texas hamlet and kidnapped an American family of five last week, and are still holding one of them, sources tell NewsMax."

"It's believed that the family members were shooting at rabbits along the [Rio Grande] river at the time of their kidnapping... Local law enforcement was contacted after the release of family members." ...

"Law enforcement sources said the family was not shooting into Mexico or otherwise threatening Mexican military or civilian personnel."

"The latest incursion into the U.S. by armed Mexican troops follows a series of similar incidents directed against U.S. civilians and law enforcement authorities. The most high-profile kidnapping occurred in August 1985, when an eight-man squad of Mexican troops crossed the border onto private property in San Diego County."
