John Longnecker: Guns On Campus: Northern Illinois U:Rule #1: Sue Everybody

"It's time to forget about writing more gun bans, time to quit profiling (it's a stalling tactic for political reasons) and time to litigate. The first order of business for any damaged plaintiff is to sue everybody. This would be all colleges who ban weapons, including those who have seen their students murdered ..."

"This would include suing for administration interference with self-defense by way of policy in cases of both gun and non-gun killings such as knifings, beatings and missing persons."

"It could be found that a college has no duty to protect its student body ... but does a college have an obligation NOT to INTERFERE with adults who take their own reasonable and legal measures in self-defense? ..." ...

"There's a bold new political and cultural push on in America to make everyone dependent on government."

"You don't need guns to defend yourself and your family, just call 911."

"You don't need to prepare for disasters, just call 911." ...

"Having said that, let's try a little shock treatment."

"While you read the rest of this column, please listen to this audio of a 911 call placed by Brenda Orr of Doylestown, Penn., last month when the multiple sclerosis victim's bed became engulfed in fire."

"Remember, Brenda didn't have a choice about relying on government. You still do." ...

Submitter's Note: The lazy government employees in this case will not be charged with misconduct because the government is filled with misfits from top to bottom and see the world as, Us vs Them.

"'American firearm owners can save the United States from an impending potential political disaster in November,' gun rights expert John M. Snyder said here today."

"He noted that the two Democrat candidates for President, Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Barrack Hussein Obama of Illinois, profess support for the Second Amendment but that the public record of 'each of these two characters demonstrates their actual opposition to the individual Second Amendment civil right of law-abiding American citizens to keep and bear arms. This is hypocrisy. They're like Tweedledum and Tweedledee in their lying to the American public.'" ...

"In my right ear is a friend, a minister, railing against the easy availability of guns in our society. She is also agitated that the District's handgun ban may be overturned when the Supreme Court rules on the measure next month."

"In my left ear is a friend, a 40-ish D.C. resident, railing against the fact that I have yet to purchase a gun and learn how to use it for my protection. He is only half placated that I recently had a home security system installed after his insistence." ...

"As the daily body count rises from random acts of violence, the equally passionate arguments on both sides of the gun-control debate do little to stem the bloodletting." ...

"Having read most of the blogs and subsequent comments concerning the latest gun-related tragedy ... I noticed the wildly disparate opinions regarding this incident and the purpose of the second amendment."

"While these incidents are tragic, there are many reasons ... for these types of crimes. I'll not attempt to analyze these reasons here, but I will say this...banning firearms for law-abiding citizens is not the answer. Unfortunately, incidents like these are the assumed risks of life in a free society."

"The right to bear arms is not only intended for protection of oneself and one's property, but the right to defend oneself from the tyranny of government. Are we to allow only the police and the criminals to carry guns?" ...
 

M1 carbine

"For the purpose of a survival / defensive weapon there are much better weapons on the market than the little M1 carbine. The M1 is overpriced and under powered, one would be much better served by two Yugo SKS's or four .303 british bolt guns costing approximately the same as one of the little .30 carbines. But seeing how interest in this thing never seems to die, I will get into a little more detail here."

"The M1 carbine bolt mechanism is similar to the M1 Garand rifle, though the carbine has a different gas system and trigger mechanism design. The gas system is a lightweight tappet-and-slide gas system. Initially fed from a 15 round magazine, a 30 round magazine was introduced for the M2." ...

"The Karabiner 98k 'Mauser' (often abbreviated 'K98k' or 'Kar98k') was adopted in the mid 1930s and would be the most common infantry rifle in service within the German Army during World War II. The design was based on developed from the Karabiner 98b, one of the carbines developed from the Model 1898 mentioned before. The K98k was first adopted by the Wehrmacht in 1935 to be their standard issue rifle, with many older versions being converted and shortened as well as the design itself entering production." ...

"Whenever there's a shooting on a college campus, you can count on two reactions."

"One will be a call to put new restrictions on gun sales. The other will be a proposal to let college students and professors arm themselves."

"Both proposals popped up after last week's rampage by a suicidal gunman at Northern Illinois University."

"Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign, called for unspecified but 'common-sense steps ... '" ...

"It's election season, meaning candidates across the political spectrum will rediscover their love of shotguns and regale us with tender tales of hunting varmints."

"What this pandering actually tells us is that the acrimonious issue of gun ownership is settling in on the side of the Constitution. Though citizens hold varied opinions on how to govern possession, a majority believe that gun ownership is an individual right." ...

"Now, one of the most significant cases regarding the Second Amendment will give the Supreme Court a chance to settle the question of whether owning a gun is an individual right or intended only for those serving in a militia." ...
 

Bush administration lands on wrong side of gun rights

"If you think the District of Columbia's ban on all functional firearms in all homes is a reasonable regulation under the Second Amendment, you'll love the friend-of-the-court brief filed by the Bush administration in D.C. v. Heller, now before the Supreme Court."

"The Department of Justice's (DOJ) previously stated position is that the Second Amendment secures a right of individuals not restricted to militia service. But astonishingly, the Justice Department now recommends an elastic standard for determining whether a handgun ban is reasonable. According to the DOJ, the courts should consider the nature and functional adequacy of available alternatives. That may sound sensible at first blush, but it could be fatal to the Heller litigation." ...

"Robert Levy, the man paying for a U.S. Supreme Court challenge to the District of Columbia's handgun ban, has built his own financial-data business and enrolled in law school as a 50-year-old."

"The one thing he has never done is own a gun."

"'Here in Bay Colony, it's not quite the high-risk crime area that might require a gun,' he said during lunch by the pool at his Naples, Florida, club."

"Levy, 66, is a driving force behind a case that may confer a constitutional right for individuals to own a firearm. The libertarian scholar helped put the lawsuit together -- over the objections of the National Rifle Association -- and now is before the nation's highest court in the only case he has ever filed as a lawyer." ...

"While we wonder why a disturbed man clad in black would commit such an act of carnage, we also ask why a civilized country such as ours makes it so easy for people to lay their hands on guns." ...

""Tragedies such as these inevitably provoke debate on the authority of the Second Amendment versus the need for stronger gun control laws. We don't want to see the Second Amendment diluted any more than we want to see guns in the hands of people who would use them for mass murders or criminal activity." ...

"Let's get this out of the way. I am a gun owner and a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment. What I do not support is extending the rights embedded in the Second Amendment to terrorists, criminals, and children."

"In the wake of a horrific campus shooting at Northern Illinois University, where 21 students were shot, we're reminded again that national gun laws must be strengthened."

"Sadly, gun laws have only been weakened since the massacres at Columbine High School and Virginia Tech. To be sure, these headline-grabbing mass shootings may not have been preventable. But beyond the headlines, consider this news: 83 Americans die each and every day from gun violence. And much of that violence is very preventable." ...

KABA Note: Since 56% of those 83 are suicides then yes, much of the 'gun violence' is very preventable.

"Columbine."

"Virginia Tech. Northern Illinois University."

"Workplaces. Going postal. Lori Dan."

"Publicized shootings have become so common that Americans fail to realize exactly how anomalous they are. Lack of perspective is the third tragedy of mass gun violence."

"The second tragedy lies in the way we refuse to learn from our past fiascos. As the cliché posits, one form of insanity is repeating the same behavior over and over again yet expecting different results. Yet Americans do exactly that after every major shooting: We lack the social and political resolve to enact an aggressive gun control agenda." ...

"Following the tragic shooting at Northern Illinois University, the last in a string of college shootings in recent years, questions of student safety are a topic of legitimate concern throughout the nation. Among the many proposals that have been discussed, by far the most controversial solution has been the idea of legalizing the carrying of firearms on university campuses. This proposition is seen by some as nothing more than an exercise in common sense ... However, proponents of gun control laws will argue that giving students a carte blanche privilege to carry concealed firearms would actually contribute to the frequency with which gun related violence erupts in our nation's colleges." ...

"As a UMass student, it's hard to ignore the news stories that are circulating on not only this campus, but also on the national news recently. Thursday's Northern Illinois University shooting is the most recent in a number of college shootings that have garnered national attention."

"A few weeks ago, there was a shooting in Baton Rouge, La. And there were, of course, the Virginia Tech shootings last spring. A subject that perhaps hasn't made as much news as it should is the subject of gun control."

"Another month, another campus shooting."

"Earlier this week, at least six people died at Northern Illinois University ... Add that to a handful of other recent college shootings, plus the horrific loss of life at Virginia Tech last year, and the idea of letting students defend themselves against deranged gunmen by carrying weapons on campus seems to almost make sense."

"Almost, but not quite."

"Of course, there is virtually no chance that the uniformly left-thinking individuals who run our universities will ever consider this option. To do so would mean abandoning what is essentially a religious-like conviction that guns are immoral rather than the people who use them immorally."

"Question 3: Why are 'shooter' and 'gunman' used instead of 'killer' or 'murderer'?"

"If a murderer used a knife to murder five students, no news headlines would read, 'Knifeman Kills Five.' So why always 'shooter' and 'gunman'?" ...

In order to maintain pro-gun leadership in the Senate, and to prevent harassment of New York's hunters, shooters and sportsmen, we need Will Barclay in the Senate.

In response to the Feb. 13 editorial, I wish to state that my wife and I have been to numerous national parks. Licensed to carry a handgun, as I did every time we visited a national park, I am exercising my Second Amendment rights.

Look at the escalating episodes of shootings in the last few months in our schools, malls, colleges, etc. Who would be there to protect my family? The police cannot be everywhere, furthermore, it is not their job to protect you as an individual.

Why do you think more men and women are legally carrying guns? They are frightened. Outlawing guns in national parks would be just like outlawing drugs ... only the bad guy would have them. 

A breathalyzer test revealed Officer Andrew Page's blood alcohol content was 0.16 percent, double the legal limit, the newspaper reported.

Page, who was not wearing his uniform at the time of the crash, was suspended, a Roanoke police spokeswoman told the newspaper.

"How long does this have to happen? How many of my home state brethren have to die? When will people like Chicago Mayor Daley and Governor Blagojevich realize they are leaving their citizens at the whim of thugs and the deranged?"

"The sad truth is they will never get it – they will never learn that their draconian gun policies don’t work. Chicago leads the nation in murders nearly every year, yet Mayor Daley doesn’t get that criminals know Chicagoans are disarmed. The same is true for colleges where students are easy victims, left to die in masse without the ability to defend their life." ...
