The West, Washington, D.C., and Weapons

"In 1989, John Shuler of rural Dupuyer, Montana, heard grizzly bears outside his house; fearing they would kill his sheep, he grabbed his rifle and ran into the night. The good news is he survived his encounter with four grizzly bears, as did his sheep. The bad news is his lawyers spent eight years and a quarter of a million dollars to get him acquitted of charges that he violated the Endangered Species Act by killing one of those bears. Early on in that legal battle, the federal government ruled that, although Shuler justifiably feared 'death or serious bodily injury'—the test for a self-defense claim—he had no right to arm himself and enter into what the government called 'the zone of imminent danger.'" ...

"I was variously accused of being 'negative' and 'paranoid,' among other things, when I warned in this space some time ago that gun owners 'should be careful what they wish for' in the Supreme Court's upcoming ruling on Second Amendment rights."

"The gun world almost universally heralded the pending case as an historic move toward establishing the individual right to bear arms. But my take was that the case ... could always end with a disappointing verdict -- even though the odds were against that."

"Well, here's where 'I told you so:' In a move that pro-gun crowd can only view as disappointing at best ... the Bush Administration's Justice Department lawyers have filed a disturbing amicus brief in the landmark case." ...

"When Dexter Guptill and his gun-slinging group head into a restaurant, they can't help but be noticed by other patrons. Virginia state gun law prohibits concealed weapons in establishments that serve alcohol, so he and his crew must display their firearms. It turns heads, but Guptill doesn't mind; it gives him and his friends a chance to talk about the Pink Pistols - the gay, gun rights group that they all belong to."

"As unlikely as the combination of guns and gays may sound, the Pink Pistols have grown since their inception in 2000 to include over 40 chapters in the U.S. and one in Canada. Their aim ... is to encourage the safe usage of firearms while advocating for gun rights in an atmosphere that is accepting ..." ...

"... The terrorists entered a library room where seven of the boarding school's counselors were meeting. Dressed as security guards, and armed with a knife and what appeared to be a gun ... ordered the seven to line up on one side of the room. A counselor, realizing they were terrorists, drew his personal firearm and opened fire. Another grabbed the fake gun from the other terrorist, wrestled him to the floor, while the first counselor shot him. ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Military re-enactors and museum officials are taking potshots at a plan to regulate antique firearms in New York.

If passed in its current form, the proposal by Democratic Assemblyman Michael Gianaris of Queens would require owners of antique guns, black powder weapons and muzzle-loading firearms to go through a background check and purchase a license.

But the Museum Association of New York says the bill doesn't recognize the circumstances of museums and re-enactment groups who own and use these firearms for educational purposes.

Gianaris said after hearing the concerns of museum officials and re-enactors he expected to amend his proposal to remove the licensing requirements.

"When a Seattle cop kicked the legs out from under a woman, fracturing her cheekbone as she fell face-first onto the pavement, the captain in charge of internal investigations recommended discipline."

"The 'intervention' that the officer received included an admonition to keep using force when necessary on the street."
