... "'[I]t troubles me that there is no national database to track police shootings of civilians,' Franklin explains. 'This means that we don’t know exactly how many people are killed by police each year. And lawmakers and other authorities don't have the information they need when making decisions about policy changes that could save lives.'" ...

... "I speak from personal experience recalling a local range that was closed in Ohio after a development was built nearby, even though everyone – the developers, the realtors and the home purchasers, knew it was there and sold and bought property with that knowledge and with all required disclosures. And I’ve noted the same thing happening elsewhere. The same people would no doubt squawk like hell should the same government they’re turning to now decide their property would be more valuable as a township revenue generator, as happened in the notorious Kelo decision." ...

"Let’s say you want to stop someone from shooting you. You could A) lobby for more gun control, B) report the potential killer to the police, or C) arm yourself. Choose any two. Common sense suggests that B and C are the correct answer. Even if you think “stricter” gun laws could keep a gun out of the hands of your potential killer, you’d have to be crazy to consider it a short-term solution. When it’s your life on the line, short-term solutions are what you need. And any law that makes it harder for you, the innocent party, to get a gun to defend your life is a bad thing, not a good thing. So, did I miss something? If so, here’s a story from Houston that makes the point in a more emotionally engaging way . . ." ...

"OC seems to be a hot-spot in the anti/pro debate now. The Moms don’t have a problem with uniformed cops, and perhaps others in uniform, open-carrying. OCing-while-Uniformed doesn’t scare the hoplophobes. But we haven’t been asking the obvious question: What does a uniform prove? . . ." ...

"Calling members of the mainstream media on the firearms-related myths, misstatements and misinformation they’re so well known for spouting can be a Sisyphean task. No matter how many times you swat them over the net, they bounce right back ... The latest scribe to beclown himself is New York Times' editorial board member Jesse Wegman. In a blog post archly titled 'Wait, Guns Do Kill People?', he writes, 'Last July, William DeHayes was practicing some innocent gun-slinging tricks in his kitchen in Brooksville, Florida, when he accidentally shot Katherine Hoover, the wife of his old friend, point blank in the temple as she sat eating at the kitchen table. . . ." ...

... "2nd Amendment Under Attack

"Second Amendment advocates at the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America and the National Association for Gun Rights are deeply concerned about a new [ATF] proposed ban of a popularly used ammunition. Ammunition bans are a back door way for the Obama Administration to impose gun control without passing a new law."

"According to the NRA, 'having failed to enact a federal ban on the AR-15, America’s most popular rifle, he’s now using the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to do the next best thing. BATFE is now proposing to ban a whole class of common rifle ammunition used in that overwhelmingly popular firearm.'" ...

"Making it official yesterday when the conclusion was somewhat foregone, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms announced its support for the proposed Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015, while a letter-writer in Maryland thinks the whole concept is appalling."

"Writing in the Southern Maryland News Online, Harry Childers of Lexington Park sneered about a couple of state measures aimed at state-level reciprocity. That’s the kind of thing that Texas Sen. John Cornyn’s federal legislation would make unnecessary. But Childers — and you can bet there are many anti-gunners who share his sentiment — thinks the Maryland bills are a bad idea." ...

"Second Amendment opponents are in an uproar after Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore proposed a radical new concept to help curb the rise in rapes on college campuses."

"Her off-the-wall idea, which is as old as the United States itself, is that women on college campuses be allowed to carry firearms."
"If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm, I wonder how many men will want to assault them. ...

The sexual assaults that are occurring would go down once these sexual predators get a bullet in their head.
"
"As you might expect, left-leaning anti-gun groups immediately jumped on the comments, claiming that Fiore is exploiting one of the country's hottest issues." ...

"Just after midnight on Nov. 20, a lone gunman entered Florida State University’s Strozier Library where, in mere moments, he shot and wounded three students while others scrambled for safety. Just as abruptly, with shock and chaos in his wake, the shooter — FSU alumnus Myron May — exited, encountering campus police."

"Their brief confrontation ended when ... May fired on the cops, and they answered with the proverbial hail of bullets. ..."

"The events of that horrific night are reverberating through the committee rooms of the Capitol this winter, where Rep. Greg Steube’s bill to allow owners of concealed-carry permits to exercise their privilege on public college and university campuses is gaining momentum." ...

"Leaders in Volusia County — where a man was accidentally shot to death by a neighbor while gardening and where gun ranges caused a stir in two communities — say it’s time for a change to the law. But gun rights advocates say House Bill 623 would infringe on the Second Amendment." ...

"If they are combined into one bill and get enough votes, anyone at least 21 years old with a concealed weapons permit will be able stroll around a college campus with their trusty firearm."

"Never mind that all 12 public state universities oppose this proposal. Faculty members and campus police officers throughout the state overwhelmingly are against it."

"[NRA] maven Marion Hammer wants it, so the gerrymandered lapdog Republican majority in Tallahassee is again attempting to force the latest expansion of what is laughably called 'gun rights' down the state’s throat." ...

"Tony Henderson is getting his crossbow back, regardless of whether he wins or loses at the Supreme Court."

"The former Jacksonville, Fla.-area Border Patrol agent is also getting back his homemade muzzle-loading rifle, surrendered with the crossbow following Henderson’s 2006 arrest on drug charges. About this, there’s no longer any dispute."

"But whether Henderson can get back other firearms held by the government for more than eight years is an intricate legal question that will confront the court on Tuesday. It’s also triggered another clash between gun-control advocates and champions of expansive constitutional protections for gun ownership." ...

"Journalists at the DC Post were looking through message boards that are frequented by law enforcement officers, when they found a post where one officer was causally talking about planting evidence on 'mouthy drivers' and 'street lawyers.'"

"The Post then contacted the officer and conducted an anonymous interview with him where he revealed his disturbing perspective."

"The officer revealed the illegal and unethical actions that he is proud of taking on the job. The DC Post has also said that they have verified the officer’s position with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, and they have verified many of the claims that he has made."

"Jaime Andrade has been charged with illegal possession of an assault rifle and illegally storing a firearm, both felonies."

"Monterey County Prosecutor Doug Matheson estimated that it may take a day to argue procedual matters, including evidence, before jury selection can begin."

"Jury selection could be snaggled somewhat by the highly-publicized nature of the case, the fact that Andrade was a police officer and by potential Second Amendment implications, Matheson said." ...

"Dale Norman and his attorneys had their way, Floridians would be able to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms by openly carrying guns on public streets."

"Fortunately, the 4th District Court of Appeals ruled against Norman last week in a case justices describe as the first of its kind, finding the state's ban on open carry is constitutional. It is a rare victory for proponents of sensible gun laws in a state known for lax and nonsensical firearms legislation."

"Norman was arrested in 2012 in Fort Pierce for openly carrying a gun in a holster ... A jury found Norman guilty of a second-degree misdemeanor. He sued, lost, appealed and then lost again when the 4th DCA upheld the lower court's ruling." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins ... Society is in every state a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. — THOMAS PAINE
