NC: Defending their rights by sticking to their guns

While participating in highway clean ups, the Student for Concealed Carry on Campus chapter seems like the average club doing community service at first glance. These students take safety precautions to a different level though. Along with the reflective vests and garden gloves, these students carry pistols in holsters while serving their community.

"We get a pretty good amount of horn beeps and ‘woo-hoos' and stuff while we're out there," Clark Lynn said. Lynn is a senior in psychology and president of the N.C. State chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus.

The Eastman Gun & Knife Show fired off with a bang on Saturday at The Forum in Rome. The show continues today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Dozens of people, young and old and both women and men, circled the weapons on display, perusing the numerous guns and knives with almost revered expressions.

The manager of the show, Raymond Johns, said the event comes to Rome twice a year, once in September and again in February.

Among the proposed amendments, most of which have little chance, are ones:

- Allowing people to keep guns for self-defense and other legitimate uses.
 

AZ: Bill could allow guns to be carried on college campuses

Firearms may soon be allowed on Arizona college campuses if Senate Bill 1474 is passed.

This past April, Gov. Brewer vetoed the bill, which was then SB 1467. In her veto letter, she said the bill was too ambiguous in stating its key concepts of where weapons can be carried and how K-12 schools will be affected.

“Bills impacting our Second Amendment rights have to be crystal clear so that gun owners don’t become lawbreakers by accident,” Brewer said. The bill has been modified to correct the areas in which Brewer said were too vague, in hopes of being passed this time around.
 

Justice Ginsburg Reminds Us What is at Stake in November

This November’s election isn’t about the direction of our country over the next four years – it’s about the very survival of our Constitution, our values, and our freedoms as we know them. If freedom-loving Americans needed any more evidence for this, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently provided it.

In a visit to Cairo, Egypt, Justice Ginsburg told Al Hayat television, “I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012.”
 

AZ: Bill to allow guns on Arizona college campuses passes Senate Judiciary Committee

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted Monday to allow guns onto college campuses.

That 5-3 vote came after Sen. Steve Yarbrough, R-Chandler, sided with Democrats in opposition. Yarbrough said he was not convinced that limiting the right to those with a state-issued permit to carry a concealed weapon provides sufficient safeguards.

But the other Republicans on the GOP-dominated panel said all they were doing is affirming the constitutional right of individuals to protect themselves.
 

Rahm Emanuel's $400,000 autograph

Some people collect stamps. Alan Gottlieb, executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), collects checks from governments that try to curtail citizens’ right to bear arms. Last week, he received a check for $399,950 signed by Chicago mayor and former President Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel in payment for the cost of fighting the windy city’s handgun ban in Supreme Court case McDonald v. City of Chicago. But this is just a start.

Manhattan prosecutors have quietly offered a no-jail, misdemeanor deal to the retired young Marine facing a mandatory 3 1/2-year prison sentence after trying to check his Indiana-registered handgun at the Empire State Building, court papers reveal.

But former tow gunner Ryan Jerome — who has garnered letter-writing support from hundreds of current and former Marines — is saying no thanks and continues to ask that the case be dropped altogether.

The passage by the Senate Judiciary Committee of SB1474, allowing permit-holding students on college campuses to carry firearms, has to rank as one of the most irresponsible, misguided and dangerous acts ever concocted by this governing body.
 

Wherefore Art Thou ACLU?

Like the Supreme Court, the ACLU is as easily judged by its sins of omission as by the active positions it takes. Certain cases that one would assume to be within its sphere of interest are met with a deafening silence. The national ALCU ignored the internment of Japanese American citizens during the Second World War, was notably quiet during the McCarthy era, and made no mention whatsoever of D.C. v. Heller, the most important Second Amendment case that the Supreme Court took since the New Deal. And until Wednesday of last week, to its long Catalogue of Things Overlooked we could have added the HHS contraception mandate. But then the ACLU spoke up — for the government.

The bill would allow Iowans to respond with deadly force if they feel threatened and would protect them from liability in some cases.

This session Windschitl also has proposed legislation that makes it a crime for local governments to ban firearms from public buildings, lifts the firearm prohibition on the State Fairgrounds and adds wording to the Iowa Constitution that makes it harder to place restrictions on firearm ownership, transportation and use.

Republicans hold a 60-40 majority in the House, but in the Senate, Democrats rule 26-24.

In a rare instance, a woman who killed her husband after he attacked her in an inebriated state and also attempted to rape their daughter has been set free by police on grounds of private defense.

"Investigations proved that it was an act of private self-defense and to safeguard her daughter's modesty. So Police released Usha Rani charged of murdering her husband," Superintendent of Police Asra Garg said.

The NRA and other Second Amendment groups may have just found the best friend they could have ever hoped for – a new rock & roll band based out of New York named Madison Rising.

According to the band’s website, “Madison Rising (www.madisonrising.com) promotes the principles of liberty, independence, smaller government and personal responsibility.”

The band’s latest cause is to help bring awareness to the relentless attacks on one of the most cherished rights granted in the Constitution: The right to keep and bear arms. On January 30th, the band released a video for their single “Right To Bear.”

Iowa had nearly 16,000 burglaries in 2009. If the law were in effect then, we could expect many of those intruders to now be dead.

What if someone is paranoid, apt to believe he’s being threatened when he isn’t? What if the intruder is more apt to harm himself, as in “suicide by cop”? What if the person standing his ground is drunk, hot-headed and trigger-happy, or a Josh Powell looking to be rid of his wife and children? If House File 573 becomes law, it wouldn’t be hard to fake an encounter to make it seem justified.

Whoa! Now that’s one way to get some attention on the red carpet — Russian dance-pop singer Sasha Gradiva displayed her right to bear arms on her arms by appearing with one appendage covered in guns at the 2012 Grammys red carpet. Now we just hope that whoever she’s rooting for to win tonight gets their due — or else! (Hopefully, none of these are loaded.) Head below for a closer look — just not too close, please.
 

NY: 3 senators introduce a bill for oversight of NYPD

Three Democratic New York state senators want an independent inspector to oversee the New York Police Department after what they called several abuses, including reports of widespread surveillance of Muslims and the crackdown on Occupy Wall Street protesters.
The bill follows stories by The Associated Press that detailed monitoring of Muslims, a tactic decried by some as religious profiling. The bill targets "stop-and-frisk, the treatment of the Occupy Wall Street protesters, and the wholesale surveillance of the Muslim community in New York City and other jurisdictions."

UT: Legislature looks at banning DUI checkpoints

"SALT LAKE CITY — Unified Police Department Sheriff Jim Winder says before law enforcement set up check points to catch drunken drivers, popular recreational areas like Bullfrong Marina on Lake Powell and Little Sarhara in Juab County were dangerous places to party.

But a majority of those lawmakers were unswayed from their beliefs that those same checkpoints are also unconstitutional and unnecessary for safety, and voted 8-5 to advance a bill, HB140, that would prohibit law enforcement from establishing checkpoints for DUI or other offenses."

Submitter's note: HIT THE POLL and stand for liberty and the constitution! I'm still in shock that we have SOME legislators who will stand for liberty and the constitution.
 

UT: 5 Years Later, Mourning Mom Battles Against Guns

Five years ago on Sunday, February 12, a teen with a pistol-grip shotgun devastated families and the community of Salt Lake City. Carolyn Tuft's family was one of those shattered by the gunfire. Carolyn was shot and so was her 15-year-old daughter Kirsten, who died of the injuries. In the years since that horrible day, Brady Center lawyers have represented Carolyn in court, seeking justice against the pawn shop that illegally sold the gun to gunman Suleman Talovic, 18 at the time. Last summer a judge cleared the case for trial and a tentative trial date in May, 2012 has been set. "We know the past five years have been deeply painful for Carolyn, her daughter, Kait, and the rest of the Tuft family,"
 

Vintage NRA "Eddie Eagle" Gun Safety Video

Turning the clock back a bit, have a look at this Eddie Eagle video on proper gun safety. Although it was made a while back, the message has not changed and the methods have not either. Created in 1988, The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program has reached more than 25 million children with its easily remembered rules for when you see a gun: STOP! Don't Touch Leave the Area. Tell an Adult. The purpose of the Eddie Eagle Program isn't to teach whether guns are good or bad, but to promote the protection and safety of children. No firearms are ever used in the program, and are merely treated as facts of life like swimming pools, electrical outlets, matchbooks and household poison.

My brother committed suicide with a gun. When New York City's murder rate was 4 times its current level -- guns were often involved, and they're still involved in many of the city's crimes. It's no surprise I'm an advocate of gun control, and a knee-jerk opponent of the National Rifle Association (NRA). It's extraordinary that I find myself concurring with the NRA about 2 tourists recently arrested in NYC.
 

NY: New York State Senate Democrats take a shot at law cracking down on illegal hand guns

State Senate Democrats next week plan to revive legislation aimed at cracking down on illegal handguns — a bill that was shot down in the Legislature two years ago. The Democrats are set to begin a “sustained” push to require some bullet casings to carry unique markings — a process known as microstamping that is strongly backed by Mayor Bloomberg, an anti-illegal gun crusader.
