Outdoor Happenings: Protection when you need it

"Let's start out with the right handgun. While there are a multitude of handguns for defensive use, I have two recommendations. My first is a double-action revolver with at least a five-shot capacity."

"The cylinder should be chamfered for speed loaders or full moon clips. The barrel should be no longer than six inches but no shorter than two. My second recommendation would be a quality semi-auto pistol, such as the venerable 1911 design or a similar pistol. The same guidelines for barrel length should be followed. A semi-auto pistol should have a magazine capacity of at least 7 rounds. My picks for handgun calibers include .357 S&W Magnum, .357 Sig, .40 S&W, any 9mm or .45 round, as well as the big-bore .44 Magnum. ..." ...

"In baseball, football, basketball, swimming, and most track & field events, males usually out-perform females. That is simply because men, as a group, normally have more physical strength and speed than women."

"There is a sport, however, where men have absolutely no advantage over women. Indeed in this sport, still regarded by some as a 'macho' thing, women often beat men. Several variations of this sport have been in the Olympics for more than a hundred years."

"This truly gender-neutral sport is marksmanship; shooting a rifle or pistol at some target."

"In the 2000 Olympics held in Sydney, Australia, the very first gold medal won by anyone went to Nancy Johnson, an American who grew up in Illinois. ..." ...

"Congress ought not to determine a point of this sort about instituting government. What is it to Congress how justice is administered? You have no right to pass the resolution, any more than Parliament has...."

"Don't doubt that foreign mercenaries are coming to destroy us. I do think we shall lose our liberties, properties, and lives too, if we do not take this step...."

"A maxim, that all government originates from the people. We are the servants of the people, sent here to act under a delegated authority. If we exceed it, voluntarily, we deserve neither excuse nor justification...."

"Cherry Tree is as small-town as it gets, with one blink-and-you'll-miss-it intersection, about 100 families spread across the Susquehanna River valley, and virtually no crime."

"'Very, very little, if any,' said Lt. Brad Shields, commander of the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Indiana, which provides protection for the borough near the junction of Indiana, Cambria and Clearfield Counties."

"Which is why many folks are mystified about why a councilman wants all homeowners in this peaceful, rural nook of Western Pennsylvania to be armed and ready to defend themselves." ...

"The prediction of the busiest 'lame duck' session in some time is fast becoming a reality. In fact, new bills are being introduced which will hopefully be passed into law before years end. ..."

"I'm pleased to report that the Senate passed the Conceal Carry Bill known as House Bill 347. The bill has been approved by a strong majority vote in both the House and Senate and the bill awaits the Governor's signature to become law. Although Governor Bob Taft has promised to veto the Conceal Carry Bill, I am extremely hopeful that we will be able to persuade him to sign this most important legislation. I would encourage all supporters of our 2nd Amendment rights to contact Governor Taft's Office and ask that he sign this legislation into law!" ...

KABA Note: This is actually a reform bill, fixing several problems with the original CCW bill.

"As I read through many an editoral on HB347 over this past weekend, I found it extremely instructive to compare editorials from two northwest Ohio newspapers."

"Findlay and Toledo are less than 50 miles apart, but at least from a newspaper editor standpoint, Findlay might as well be on Mars, and Toledo on Venus." ...

"The Courier gets off on the right foot, noting that the legislation in question has been hung up for over a year:" ...

"The Blade starts off by implying that the statewide preemption language contained in HB347 since the day it was introduced 15 months ago is a surprise attack:" ...

"If there was some political strategy behind passing a concealed-carry gun bill that Gov. Bob Taft is likely to veto, Scott Borgemenke isn't aware of it."

"'There was pent-up demand for this bill. I think people were just dying for this thing to go,' said the chief of staff for House Speaker Jon A. Husted, RKettering. '... If you're going to use it as a bargaining chip, you probably threaten passage as opposed to passing it.'"

"Only once before in the past eight years have Republican lawmakers sent Taft a bill he was likely to veto. Last week's bill changing Ohio’s concealed carry law alters how a gun can be carried in a vehicle and wipes out any local gun laws that are more restrictive than state law." ...

"A committee that wants to double some hunting and fishing license fees in Michigan began the slow, uphill battle Wednesday to convince state lawmakers the increases are needed."

"The first step: Convincing lawmakers, and the general public, they would get over the sticker shock once they understand the financial difficulties faced by the state Department of Natural Resources. The fee increases would be a quick fix and might not solve all the DNR's long-term problems ..." ...

"The National Rifle Association and several other groups testified Wednesday the increases should be phased in rather than imposed at once. They worry that big increases would cause some hunters and anglers to give up the sports." ...

Submitter's Note: Maybe if they added another hunting season, like, say, a Mourning Dove season . . .

"Guns are a smokin' in Montezuma County for females who want to hone their weapon and self-defense skills with a firearm."

"Roger Hazlewood, a Cortez resident and National Rifle Association certified instructor, offers women a free gun-skill safety course on the third Sunday of each month at the outdoor range across from to the county fairgrounds, weather permitting."

"During the class, female students work on developing gun speed, accuracy and skills to protect from muggings, car jackings and other threat-related situations."

"'We train to do these things because in a real-life situation, you'll probably freeze up,' Hazlewood said. 'It's called repetitive-muscle memory training ...'" ...

"'As he ran between us Martin CS'd him again. Then I heard a bang, and then another bang and I felt a sharp pain in my leg. I screamed. He had shot me from behind as he ran past.'" ...
