IN: Gun shows offer opportunity for enthusiasts, but policies face criticism from opponents

Ron Greenwell has been in the business of selling guns for close to 25 years. And he spent 20 years hauling merchandise to gun shows around Southern Indiana — taking advantage of the often huge crowds those shows draw. “I did it for years and then I got too crippled up,” Greenwell said. Now he sells guns strictly out of his shop, Ron’s Gun Repair and Sales Inc., which means he must possess a Federal Firearms License (FFL) — even though a large percentage of vendors at gun shows are not licensed, nor are they required by law to be. As private collectors selling from their own collection, federal and state law does not define them as a dealer “engaged in the business of selling guns.”

The next few months constitute prime time to shop for a new shotgun for next season. A reader e-mailed me recently to suggest this as a column topic. I hope the following information helps. Personal shotgun preference is as individualized as preference in automobiles or fishing tackle. Experienced hunters have their own ideas about what works best. These are my ideas after 35 years in the outdoor writing business.
 

PA: Philly, NRA and Legislature heading to court over local gun rules

The Philadelphia City Council took drastic action last year to address the tide of gun violence engulfing the city. The council passed ordinances to license firearms, reduce straw purchases, regulate ammunition sales and ban possession of assault weapons. None has become law. That's because a 1974 state law says only the General Assembly can regulate guns.

The angels are crying — again. I pray that God wraps his arms around young Lawrence King and keeps them tightly around him forever. I pray for this child's family and friends to find the faith, strength and courage to somehow push through the most agonizing and paralyzing pain that anyone should endure. Another innocent, beautiful life ripped out of the universe by rage again meeting the free and easy access to a handgun.
 

NY: Electing Democrat to state senate threatens gun owners

Downstaters are targeting your guns. Democrats now control the Governor's Office and Assembly; the Republican majority in the State Senate is all that is blocking more unneeded gun control. If a Democrat is elected to the Senate this will bring them very close to a majority and it won't be long before ludicrous anti-gun legislation is passed by the legislature and signed into law by Governor Spitzer.
 

UT: New Bill To Allow Police Misconduct Be Hidden From Public

A new bill proposed at the legislature would allow for police to withhold misconduct reports from the public. Supporters of the bill believe that police misconduct should be kept secret from the public so to not discredit police testimony. Others say that a forthright police unit is essential to the community.

In September, Jared Massey was zapped with a taser by Trooper John Gardner. A video of the incident was recorded from Gardner’s patrol car. Gardner can be seen shocking Massey until he hits the ground while Massey’s wife screams from the side of their SUV.

More than a million people watched the video on “YouTube.” Massey was shocked to see his new found fame. The footage may have never been seen had Massey not made a records request to obtain the tape.

MD: Teaming up on guns

When federal policy got in his way, New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg found a way around it to combat illegal guns in his city. Mayor Sheila Dixon has learned a thing or two from Mr. Bloomberg. And now they're joining forces to better track the sources of illegal guns that drive much of the crime in their cities. It may seem like an odd pairing, but federal limitations on this critical data and the ease with which illegal guns move from state to state require a double-team approach.

"AK-47 assault rifles can shoot through a police vest or even through a car, and police said they're flooding Miami streets."

"Miami's police chief and a city commissioner talked on Thursday about banning assault rifles in the city. They said what they really want is for the federal government to take action."

Yesterday, tragedy again struck our schools. Former NIU student Steven Kazmierczak opened fire in a classroom killing seven and wounding fifteen. His motives are still unknown. How many more school shootings will this country have to witness before we change our view on firearms? With each day we do nothing, more lives are put at risk from needless gun violence.
 

ID: The Double Standard: ATF's own record keeping

I have written in the past about the BATFE's own record keeping. Since the ATF demands 100% compliance out of dealers it is only natural to look at how their own record keeping compares

Inspector General reported:

"In our survey of IOIs, 46.5 percent (139 of 299) reported that they found a discrepancy between the NFRTR inventory report and a licensee's inventory 'always' or 'most of the time. Further, 44.4 percent of respondents (133 of 299) said that the discrepance was due to an error in the NFRTR 'always' or 'most of the time. In comparison no respondents reported that the error was 'always" on the part of the licensee and only 2 percent (6 of 299) reported that the error was on the part of the licensee 'most of the time"

The New York senator was trying to reassure voters in a Wisconsin sausage joint, the Brat Stop, this afternoon that “no lawful gunowner has anything to worry about” from her with gun control, and let on that she’d chambered more than a few rounds in her time. “You know you may not believe it, but I’ve actually gone hunting,” she said to some surprise and laughter. “I know, you may not believe it, but it’s true. My father taught me to shoot a hundred years ago.”

You have no right to read this. The First Amendment gives me the right to write it, but doesn’t necessarily give you the right to read it. Or so I was once told by an attorney. While the right to free speech certainly infers a corresponding right to hear what is being spoken, he said, the First Amendment doesn’t explicitly grant such a right. So theoretically, it could be argued that no such right exists. The key word being “theoretically.” As a practical matter, the freedom to read whatever we choose is such an intrinsic part of our national character as to make legal theory superfluous. People would rise in outrage if government ever attempted to proscribe what they read. Theory and reality are often two different things.

An election-year dispute over whether to allow loaded guns in national parks is holding up a vote on a massive bill affecting public lands from coast to coast. Democrats accuse Republicans of trying to score political points by injecting a "wedge" issue like gun rights into a noncontroversial bill. Republicans counter that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trying to protect the two leading Democratic candidates for president by shielding them from a politically difficult vote on an issue that many rural voters consider crucial.

"The smoking permits were immediately lambasted as an excessive nanny state measure and "political suicide", given that their introduction would alienate the one quarter of British adults who smoke"

"The scheme would ensure smokers had to make a conscious decision to continue the habit and require people to become "registered addicts"."

"He admitted there could be a problem with an emerging black market where those with permits sold them to those without, and that it could create the impression that as long as one is licensed smoking is not harmful."

A man has filed suit against the city of Winter Springs, accusing two of its police officers of mistaking his home for someone else's, hauling him outdoors without clothes and shooting dead his Rottweiler.

The suit, filed Thursday, seeks unspecified damages.

William A. Riggin alleges he was in the shower when officers "stormed" into his home May 14, 2006. They thought they were three houses down, responding a home where an alarm had sounded.

"...Mr. Vallandigham gave notice, under the rule, of his intention to move for leave to introduce bills, as follows, viz:

"A bill to regulate and enforce the writ of habeas corpus, and for the better securing the liberty of the citizens; ..."

"...Also, a bill to secure to the people the right to keep and to bear arms for their defence..."

"...The organized militia, which under the peculiar system of Kentucky is a formidable Body entitled the "State Guard" is almost entirely officered by disunionists. . . . In their hands exclusively go all the arms and ammunition of the state. On the side of the Union, young men are riding all the circuits of the state purchasing all the powder and lead and raising all the arms possible. At every cross road store they buy all the powder to be had five pounds here and ten pounds there and direct all their side to have all their arms in readiness-- With arms in the hands of the Union men secession and revolution in Kentucky is impossible! ..."
