TX: Not every castle can have a moat

In a dangerous and threatening situation such as a robbery or other form of personal or violent crime, a person usually has few options.

Primarily, surrender, retreat or the use of self-defense are about it.

Fortunately, in Texas, residents have the right to protect themselves, others and their property.

In one of the first tests of the "Castle Doctrine" in the Amarillo area, a Randall County grand jury did not indict an Amarillo man last week for fatally shooting another man during an altercation on the Amarillo man's property.

In response to ... [DC v Heller], Montana Secretary of State Brad Johnson said in a letter to the newspaper, “The U.S. would do well to keep its contractual promise to the states that the Second Amendment secures an individual right now as it did upon execution of the statehood contract.”

Mr. Johnson refers to the fact that back in 1889, the people of Montana came to agreement with the federal government: They would join the union, and in return, the United States would agree that individuals had the right to bear arms. Should the Supreme Court somehow rule in favor of the District of Columbia, then many Montanans feel their deal with the United States will have been broken.

The West Virginia Legislature has extended civil and criminal immunity to individuals who use proportionate force on an intruder or attacker. The bill passed on the final day of the regular legislative session extends protection for victims beyond their residence or in defending themselves.

... The new amendment adds motor vehicles “or any location where another has the right to be” to the list of protected locations. Individuals entering such spaces for the purpose of engaging in criminal conduct assume the risk for their injury or death from a property owner or their agent resisting the commission of a criminal act.

That is the all-important context in which the Bill of Rights was created. The Anti-Federalists, men filled to varying degrees with fear, mistrust, and loathing of the new federal government, insisted on a bill of rights as additional shackles imposed on that new government.

Knowing that alone, knowing that the famous Bill came into existence only to please those most apprehensive of the new government, definitively ends any confusion or debate surrounding the meaning of the Second Amendment.

There is simply no way on Earth the Anti-Federalists would have surrendered to the new and mistrusted government the right to own any gun they wanted at any time they wanted in any number they wanted.
 

MT: ACLU leaders discuss gun rights case

[National ACLU legal director] Steve Shapiro: "I don't think it's going to change the fundamental equation. I think at the end of the day, there are going to be guns in this country. At the end of the day, there's going to be some measure of gun regulation in this country, however the Supreme Court decides that Second Amendment question."

[Montana ACLU director Scott] Crichton says that the state ACLU has discussed Second Amendment rights a couple of times in the last 20 years, and has split on just what it means. Especially the reference to a well-regulated militia.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Mike McGrath has made the state of Montana's position clear: It supports the individual right to own and bear arms.

On Feb. 27, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel printed a letter calling on Congress to rescind of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. The letter cites a recent shooting on a college campus as the rationale to do this. The writer grossly misunderstands both our history and the problem.

... It does not create the right to keep and bear arms — it recognizes the significance of our pre-existing right to self-determination and preservation by empowering us with the means of collective and individual defense. It acknowledges and provides for the potential need to retake our government from tyrannical leaders if necessary — and is, therefore, an essential check and balance to our elected officials and military.

Two men will spend less than 21 more months in custody for their roles in the ambush slaying of a 17-year-old boy, a judge ruled today.

On May 28, 2005, Dwayne Lloyd was shot in the chest by gunmen who were seeking revenge for the theft of a bicycle.

The sentence shocked Lloyd's mother. "This is sick," said an angry Christine Walker as she left a Brampton courtroom.

“They take my baby and his life is worth only 21 months.”

The family of a middle school student who was given detention for wearing a T-shirt bearing the image of a gun has filed a federal freedom of speech lawsuit against the school district.
Donald Miller III, 14, went to Penn Manor High School in December wearing a T-shirt he said was intended to honor his uncle, a U.S. Army soldier fighting in Iraq.
The shirt bears the image of a military sidearm and on the front pocket says "Volunteer Homeland Security." On the back, over another image of the weapon, are the words "Special issue Resident Lifetime License — United States Terrorist Hunting Permit — Permit No. 91101 — Gun Owner — No Bag Limit."

A Miami police officer surrendered Monday to face animal cruelty and other charges in the death of his K-9 partner, a female bloodhound named Dynasty.
Officer Rondal Laroy Brown, 48, will be released on bail, his attorney said.
An investigation showed that Dynasty, who was donated to the Miami Police Department in 2004 and specialized in finding missing people, was in good health in January 2007 and weighed 66 pounds. In November when she died, the 4-year-old dog weighed only 33 pounds, had sunken eyes and missing hair, and had a wound on one paw.

This morning my 4-year-old son Etani took a broken plastic hanger and pointed it at us like a gun. "Bang! Bang! Bang!" he cried. "I'm shooting you."

"We don't shoot people," my husband said.

"That's not nice," I added.

...

Though I don't like to be shot at before I've had my morning coffee,...

Ed.: That's one of the best lines I've ever read. :-) Must. Have. Coffee.

David A. Meyer

dave.meyer@usdoj.gov

I understand you took Ryan Horsley aside at the conclusion of trial testimony and instructed him to advise me of the Court Security Improvement Act of 2007, specifically, "Inspector Meyer asked me to contact you in regards to posting any information with the intent to threaten, intimidate, or incite the commission of a crime of violence against that covered official... "

Your message has been received loud and clear--along with your warning that you will not hesitate to come down and arrest anyone you suspect of violating this law. Before I give you my reply, I want to make it clear that my response is mine alone.

After three months, the investigation into a state trooper’s arrest of a newspaper journalist trying to take pictures at the scene of a house fire in Maumelle remains unresolved.

Bill Lawson, a reporter and photographer for Stephens Media newspapers in central Arkansas, was arrested and handcuffed Dec. 10 by Arkansas State Police Trooper Tom Weindruch, who claimed Lawson’s camera flash temporarily blinded him and made him fear for his safety.
 

WA: Keep loaded-gun ban in our national parks

There’s good reason – several reasons actually – for the longtime ban on loaded weapons in national parks. But there’s not a single good reason for the Bush administration to junk it. The administration’s plan to overturn the ban is an election-year stunt by the National Rifle Association to create a get-out-the-gun-vote wedge issue. The NRA convinced 50 senators – mostly Republicans — to sign a letter demanding that the firearms rules be overturned and that state firearms laws be applied instead. That would create a mishmash of rules across the nation that would be confusing for visitors traveling from state to state. It would be an enforcement nightmare for park rangers.

Virginia has dodged some dangerous gun legislation. Again. Two of the issues before the General Assembly this year — guns on college campuses and guns in bars — are perennials on the gun-rights agenda. A third, guns in cars, got more attention than in previous years. But the intent of legislation introduced on all three topics was the same: to loosen up on restrictions on who can carry guns where and under what conditions. On two fronts, citizens have Gov. Tim Kaine to thank. He vetoed two misbegotten bills that legislators approved.

The state has been issuing permits to carry concealed weapons since 1995, but they weren't welcome everywhere. Since 1995, signs have been on the doors of churches and schools and the entrances of public parks telling people not to bring hand guns with them. The Graham City Council is going to consider taking some, if not all, of those signs down.

His downfall, ironically, is good news for firearms owners. Simply put, he is not a friend of the Second Amendment. As New York's attorney general prior to his gubernatorial election, he felt legislation to impose draconian gun control on the American public was taking too long. So, in 2000, Spitzer filed a raft of lawsuits against firearms manufacturers.

A 25-year-old ban on loaded firearms in national parks, including Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota, is in the crosshairs of the U.S. Department of the Interior and 51 senators, including Minnesota's Norm Coleman. Senators have written two letters to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne asking for the ban to be shot down "in the interest of Second Amendment rights and consistency in firearms policy across federal public land management agencies." Kempthorne has instructed his staff to develop new rules and propose them for public comment by April 30.

One day in December, Donald Miller III wore a gun to school. As you might imagine, it got him in trouble.

But the gun wasn't loaded; indeed, it wasn't a real gun at all. It was the image of a gun, printed on the front and back of a T-shirt — a shirt the Penn Manor freshman wore to honor his uncle, a soldier in the U.S. Army fighting in Iraq.

On the front pocket, in addition to the picture of the military sidearm, were the words: "Volunteer Homeland Security." On the back, superimposed over another image of the weapon, the words "Special issue — Resident — Lifetime License — United States Terrorist Hunting Permit — Permit No. 91101 Gun Owner — No Bag Limit."

This year I decided to break out of my somewhat predictable routine and learn new skills. One of those skills is shooting. Yes, a gun ... with real bullets. Some people are afraid of guns. It would be scary to drive a car too if you never took driver's training. So a week ago I took my first gun class, the NRA's First Steps Pistol Orientation, at Fenton Lakes Sportsman's Club on Butcher Road in Fenton.
