A prosecutor has concluded that a 16-year-old boy was acting in self-defense when fatally shot his father. Officials say Roy Minniefield Jr. of Eudora shot 50-year-old Roy Minniefield Sr. after the father threatened his son's life and that of his son's friend.

The January incident occurred when the father questioned his son and the son's friend, Quentarious Green, about a missing firearm. Prosecutors say the father menaced his son and the friend with a firearm and that the son fired his own gun, striking his father with four bullets.

The Wyoming House voted Thursday to concur with Senate amendments to the contentious self-defense bill, House Bill 137. Supporters say the bill would spell out in statute that homeowners have a right to use deadly force on intruders.

The Senate on Wednesday voted to leave intact a House provision specifying that people who use self-defense to repel criminal attack would be immune from lawsuits.

But the Senate removed a House provision that would have specified that people in the state have no duty to try to retreat when they're outside their homes before using deadly force against assailants.

Lee: Recently, the National Parks Service began reviewing its policy on whether or not people should be able to carry loaded guns in national parks, and as you know Wyoming has parts of several national parks. Would you support carrying loaded guns in national parks?

Obama: I believe in Second Amendment rights and I believe in the rights of hunters and sportsmen to bear arms and use them in a responsible way. I would want to review the National Park initiative to make sure that there was acutally [sic] a rationale for it. People generally don't have hunting licenses in national parks, and if they don't have a hunting license, the question then is what are they going to use the firearms for?
 

TN: College 'gun-free zones' offer up our children as targets

Nowhere is that more evident than in the modern-day rash of school shootings. How many students have to die before we figure it out? Instead of actually protecting our kids, political correctness has made our schools soft targets. It's no wonder these nutcases who aim to destroy as many people as possible before taking themselves out find schools so appealing. It's not the guns. It's the fact that disgruntled students — or anyone, for that matter — can waltz into a crowded institution of learning unabated, armed to the teeth, and take their time as they selectively slaughter defenseless victims.

There are myriad articles and books psycho-analyzing the shooters. They blame everything from video games to movies to bullies.

In addition to seeking to eradicate poverty, that declaration commits nations to banning “small arms and light weapons” and ratifying a series of treaties, including the International Criminal Court Treaty, the Kyoto Protocol (global warming treaty), and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We should all take a close look at this bill for a few reasons. The first is, How many more taxes can a person take on before we are taxed to death? The second issue is the ban on small arms and light weapons as it chips away at the Second Amendment.
 

MN: Support the Castle Doctrine

Minnesotans have a right to feel safe in the comfort of their own homes. When that right is violated, homeowners should be able to use whatever force is necessary to protect themselves and their families, and citizens should not be victimized by failing to run away from an attacker.

...legislation has recently been introduced in the Minnesota House saying that citizens should be given the right to stand their ground against law-breaking criminals that break into a home, car or business, and allows the use of deadly force against an unwanted attacker. The legislation, known as the Castle Doctrine (HF498, SF446), would permit a person to stand his ground if attacked anywhere — either inside or outside of his home.
 

IA: Handgun problem can't be ignored

So what can we do? One approach would be to allow the manufacture and sale of handguns only to law enforcement agencies. That would not infringe upon the right to “keep and bear arms” but the effect would certainly be to eventually curtail the availability of handguns. Or, how about tightly controlling the manufacture and distribution of ammunition? Both of these suggestions would control the supply of handguns and not directly restrict individual freedoms but would certainly have an impact.

Another approach would be to heavily tax either handguns, ammunition or both. Or a registration of $1,000 per year also might dissuade more than a few from purchasing handguns.

On Monday, March 3rd, I was proud to join New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and six other state legislators from around the country to announce a new coalition, State Legislators Against Illegal Guns (SLAIG), at a press conference in Jacksonville, Florida. The six founding members of the new group pledged to enlist their colleagues in state legislatures across the country in an effort to identify common sense policies that will help to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

A gun-control case to be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on March 18 has exposed a division among state attorneys general over the meaning of the Second Amendment, the fiercely debated constitutional provision that guarantees Americans the right to "keep and bear arms." Attorneys general from 31 states have filed a legal brief urging the high court to strike down the law being challenged in the case, the District of Columbia's strict, 32-year-old ban on handguns. Led by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican, the group backs a security guard who wants the district's statute to be ruled unconstitutional.

Lee Macon, the Broward man who shot his neighbor to death during a fierce disagreement over the line that divides their two lawns, walked out of jail a free man Thursday.
The Broward grand jury said he committed no crime.

Submitter's Note: He should never have been jailed. Investigated, but not jailed.
A good ending to a sad story.

Let's hear it for guns! It's really getting dangerous in Los Angeles. The last two weeks we've seen so many random shootings I'm starting to lose track. I would say it's beginning to feel like Baghdad only that wouldn't be quite fair. The U.S. troop surge has really tamped down the violence in Iraq's carefree, cosmopolitan capital. Oh, except for this week's double suicide bombing, which killed more than 50 people and wounded more than 120 others. But that was a fluke, right? But, truly, the gunfire in our sunny, palm-tree-lined streets is getting a bit much.

ROCKVILLE, Md. - No matter what the cameras say, some drivers are refusing to pay dozens of $40 speeding fines. Who? Police officers.

In the last eight months of 2007, Montgomery County's new speed cameras recorded 224 cases in which police vehicles were recorded traveling more than 10 mph over the speed limit, according to department records.

The photo looks like one of those "Which one doesn't belong?" deals. Seven U.S. Army Rangers stand in fatigues and combat boots. In their midst stands a smiling college kid in tennis shoes, jeans and a hoodie.

Ohlinger was 19 when he was selected as an instructor, which made him the youngest of the 30 chosen at that time.

With the United States in protracted wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, long-range marksmanship has taken on a new importance. Ohlinger applied to be an instructor and was selected.

"There are a lot of people with knowledge, but being able to translate that knowledge requires someone to strip down the technical details to the basic starting points and then convey it. Sam has done an outstanding job with that."
 

MD: Montgomery's Finest Won't Pay Fines -- Cops flip the bird

Among the thousands of drivers who have been issued $40 fines after being nabbed by Montgomery County's new speed cameras are scores of county police officers. The difference is, many of the officers are refusing to pay.

The officers are following the advice of their union, which says the citations are issued not to the driver but to the vehicle's owner -- in this case, the county.

"You can't have one set of laws for police officers and another one for the rest of the world," City Council member Phil Andrews said.

In recent weeks, officers have twice been photographed speeding past a camera and extending a middle finger. "There is no excuse for that kind of behavior," said Andrews.

If the call ever comes, Twin Falls Police Sgt. Mark Marvin will be ready. Videotapes, stickers and even "some comic-book things" starring the National Rifle Association's Eddie Eagle are stored away, awaiting the next group of Boy Scouts who will hear the character's spiel on gun safety. Marvin can just about recite the whole presentation by heart. But he rarely gives it these days, ever since the public schools let him know five years ago that they couldn't find time to fit him in. "In recent years, there's been so many different mandates placed upon the schools," he said. "They almost have to be these kids' parents now. They don't have that free time like they used to."

IL: Weis Wants Mandatory Fitness Test For Officers

Chicago's new top cop said he is considering a mandated physical fitness test for officers, one that could also take into account body fat, not only how much a cop weighs.
But as CBS 2's Jim Williams reports, the superintendent may have some heavy lifting when it comes to putting the weight of that responsibility on the shoulders of his officers
Supt. Jody Weis wants more of this officers running and lifting weights and fewer out-of-shape cops losing the battle of the bulge. ...
Right now, cops get a $250 bonus if they pass a yearly -- and voluntary -- physical fitness exam.
Two thousand four hundred passed, 1,300 didn't even show up and 100 failed.

Over the past year, a wave of student violence has washed over college campuses across America, leaving dozens dead and thousands devastated. In response to these developments, members of the Student Assembly and the Cornell College Republicans sponsored Resolution 17 for concealed carry of weapons on campus, which failed to pass at yesterday’s S.A. meeting.

On Valentine's Day a man walked into a Northern Illinois University lecture hall and began shooting students, one at a time, while some ran and others cowered under seats. By the time he was done, he'd killed five people and wounded 18 more. Last April, a man went from classroom to classroom at Virginia Tech, shooting people as they barricaded doors, hid under desks and ran toward open windows. Those horrifying and graphic details - not just the death but the utter helplessness of those who were killed - have galvanized more than 19,000 students and professors across the nation to fight for the right to carry concealed weapons on campus.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
