"California State Senator Ron Calderon and his brother, former Assemblyman Tom Calderon, have been indicted on political corruption charges resulting from an FBI investigation, the Los Angeles Daily News/Whittier Daily News reported Friday, citing what officials call 'the largest insurance fraud case to date in California.'"

"'Sen. Ron Calderon was charged ... with fraud, bribery, conspiracy to commit money laundering, money laundering and aiding in the filing of false tax returns,' the report explains. 'His brother, Tom Calderon, a former Assemblyman, was also charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering and money laundering.'" ...

'Assault weapons,' registration, and the lessons of Connecticut

"Much has been written of late about what appears to be massive non-compliance with Connecticut's 'assault weapon' registration requirement (the guns are banned, but 'grandfathered,' if the owner registers them). Well, much has been written, that is, in gun rights advocacy circles--the mass media would apparently have us believe that it's not worth covering the fact that scores of thousands--maybe hundreds of thousands--of people are committing a felony 'crime' punishable by five years in prison." ...

"Seattle’s new anti-gun Mayor Ed Murray, who joined Mayors Against Illegal Guns the other day, is posing a dilemma for his liberal base because yesterday he supported a decision that reverses the discipline of a police officer who tangled with a writer for a popular liberal alternative newspaper."

"Some Seattle Times readers are already having what is best compared to 'buyer’s remorse' with their new mayor, who may become no more popular than the man he replaced seven weeks ago, Mike McGinn." ...

"With the recent hubbub in Cape Coral about a City Council resolution concerning the Second Amendment and comments about patriotism and the Constitution, we need to step back and review our past."

"During the founding period, there was a pervasive fear of any government having a large standing army during peacetime because it was believed this would lead to tyranny."

"In the First Congress, Thomas Scott, talking about the possibility of some people being excluded from serving in the state militias, said, 'This would lead to the violation of another article in the Constitution, which secures to the people the right of keeping arms, and in this case recourse must be had to a standing army.'" ...

"Writing for The Week last Thursday, 'progressive' Zack Beauchamp exhorts Americans to 'ban the Second Amendment.' Immediately under that headline, he pompously intones, 'Imagine the Second Amendment didn't exist, and try arguing for a constitutional right to gun ownership. You will fail.' Impressively, Beauchamp has managed the seemingly impossible feat of donning the cape of Captain Obvious, while simultaneously being dead wrong. Obvious, because the Second Amendment is the part of the Constitution dedicated to protecting the right to arms. Dead wrong, because the Tenth Amendment, were it not so routinely raped by Congress, would by itself prohibit nearly all federal gun laws." ...

"Entrepreneur Richard Cabela—the late founder of sporting goods empire Cabela’s—did more than create jobs. He protected our natural, God-given right to bear arms."

"Cabela passed away last Monday in his home state of Nebraska at the young age of 77. His story is empowering to entrepreneurs, gun owners and Second Amendment supporters."

"As tens of thousands of gun owners in the state of Connecticut commit civil disobedience and refuse to register their semi-automatic firearms, Dick Cabela’s legacy reminds us of the importance to never give up and never stop fighting for what we believe in." ...

"Guns: Second amendment advocates believe every American citizen should have the right to own a gun. I own guns but criminals and the mentally ill do not need guns. We must develop some checks and balances that will help save us from movie theatre, school and mall shootings. Not everybody is qualified to drive a car in America and not everyone is qualified to carry a gun." ...

Submitter's Note: Not quite: I believe that every person (not just Americans) does have the right to own a gun. If a person is in prison or a lock-down mental facility then they might not be permitted to possess a gun, but if they can't be trusted with a gun then they can't be trusted a custodian.

Gun Safety Improved With Armatix’s New Technology

"... The German gun maker, Armatix, has devised a smart gun using a technology known as iP1. The gun owner wears a black wristwatch that enters a PIN number using a radio frequency identification (RFID) that’s inside the watch and activates when placed near the specially designed .22 pistol. A light near the gun’s firing pin turns green making the weapon active and ready to discharge. If the watch and gun are too far apart, the pistol’s firing pin remains locked rendering the weapon useless. James Mitchell, owner of the Oak Tree Gun Club in Newhall, California is currently the only gun store selling the Armatix’s gun and wristwatch. He believes the system could revolutionize the gun industry." ...

"Anyone who needs to take out a restraining order to protect themselves from violent crimes like domestic violence should be given the same rights as those who work with violent criminals, Kelly said. The unfortunate reality is that some violent offenders don't adhere to a PPO and could take advantage of a gun free zone to inflict further pain on the victim." ...

"This week, the Supreme Court will be hearing several controversial cases that could have significant outcomes."

"On Monday, the National Rifle Association is challenging a Texas concealed carry law that bans anyone under 21 years-old from carrying guns in public. The NRA argues that the Second Amendment right of self-defense should extend to responsible 18 to 20 year-olds."

"The NRA is also appealing a nationwide federal ban on selling handguns to minors, arguing that also violates Second Amendment rights. After the Supreme Court recognized the individual right to have guns, the question became what type of limitations could be put on that right." ...

Submitter's Note: Actually the Court will not be hearing arguments in the NRA's cases, it will be announcing whether or not it will be hearing those cases.

"If the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' recent ruling striking down restrictions on concealed-carry gun permits is allowed to stand, California will become a more dangerous place."

"The court ruled Feb. 13 that San Diego County's rules requiring applicants to show 'good cause' to carry a concealed weapon are an unconstitutional infringement on the Second Amendment. Since the state also bans the open carrying of guns, regulations like these amount to a near-total ban on the ability to defend oneself in public, the court said." ...
