Safer Streets 2010: Safer corporations too, Part I
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"A lot of corporations are weighing in on the Starbucks news of following the law when it comes to the open carry of handguns in its coffee shops. Starbucks has stayed neutral and has not given in to the pressures of the anti-gun movement now beginning to punish them for standing their ground. [See Safer Starbucks and the anti-gun's what-if about food poisoning of customers, an underhanded disparagement.]" ...

"Even with a divided opinion, many corporations are posting their support for Starbucks' decision to ignore the Brady Center's insistence that Starbucks throw customers out of their establishments. [See Part I.]"

"It's great to see praise for standing your ground against a political nuisance. Brady, not open carry customers. Most of the opposition to armed customers or even armed students on campus has been that companies may be found liable if an armed employee goes postal, but it happens a lot with knives and brute force without guns. The preponderance is in more who are coming to realize that it's safer to see armed students and armed workers than to be known as unarmed and defenseless." ...

"April 19th looks to be a big day for gun rights. On the 235th anniversary of the 'shot heard 'round the world,' the Washington Monument grounds in D.C. will be the scene of the Second Amendment March (actually more a rally than a 'march'), from 10 AM to 4 PM (also discussed here)."

Gun bans and workplace violence

"By now most of you know about the shooting at Ohio State University early yesterday morning. At around 3:30am, Nathaniel Brown, who was reportedly serving a suspension for a poor job performance review, entered the university’s maintenance building and began shooting. Building supervisor Larry Wallington was killed and operations shift leader Henry Butler wounded. Brown killed himself before police could arrest him."

"Gun control advocates will point to this as an example of why guns have no place in schools or the workplace. The problem with this logic is that it was already illegal for Brown to bring a gun into the maintenance building. Not only is it a violation of workplace policy but it is also banned by Ohio law ... None of that deterred Brown ... The gun ban did, however, ensure that nobody was able to fight back." ...

"On Friday, March 5, 2010, at a public plaza situated among restaurants and retail shops in Palo Alto, Calif., a group of people planned to show up with guns on their hips. It wasn't going to be a massive shootout or a group robbery or even gangland violence. The guns weren't even going to be loaded. It was, instead, an open demonstration of 2nd amendment rights supporters ..."

"On the surface, it doesn't sound like much of a traditional security issue, as much as it is politics/NRA/second amendment topic -- except that sometimes these meet-ups are held at private businesses, or at least private businesses are so close to these public spaces that they can be impacted." ...

"As James Madison and other Founding Fathers adeptly worded the Bill of Rights in order to assure us the blessings of liberty and individual freedoms, they knew their words would be interpreted by future judiciary bodies."

"Whether they did so purposely or not, one amendment, the second, allows for the widest range of interpretation[sic]. ..."

"In 21st century America, there is little debate over the people’s right to join or maintain a militia. However, an enormous amount of debate takes place in our legislatures and courts regarding the people’s right to bear arms. There is one reoccurring[sic] question requiring interpretation of the Second Amendment: Where and when can these arms be beared[sic]?" ...

Submitter's Note: Actually the Second allows no 'interpretation'. The dependant clause provides the justification for the independent clasue. In order to maintain liberty, the right of the people to keep and bear arms "shall not be infringed." Period, stop.
 

Frappuccinos and firearms -- Businesses should ban openly carried guns

"Guns are always a hot topic and have been recently linked with the Pacific Northwest’s favorite hot beverage. Starbucks has unwillingly become involved in a heated debate between a growing open carry movement across the country." ...

"Gun enthusiasts in California and Washington, among other states, have been testing their rights to openly carry guns in public places by walking into local businesses, sometimes in groups, with guns strapped to their hips. Concealed weapons carried by individuals with permits do not have the same intimidating effect, but many gun proponents believe these permits are too difficult to obtain. Perhaps this is their way of protesting." ...

"The battle over gun control has found a new, highly-caffeinated fulcrum: Starbucks." ...

"This is a lose-lose situation for Starbucks. Because the gun owners have picked the coffee company as a gun-friendly hangout, Starbucks has had to come out publicly with the policy of allowing guns in their stores. ..." ...

"The real issue is Starbucks' reasoning. While they do say that they are only complying with state laws, they also give a more outrageous reason: Starbucks' official statement stated that if the shops were to adopt an anti-gun policy, 'we would be forced to require our partners to ask law-abiding customers to leave our stores, putting our partners in an unfair and potentially unsafe position.'" ...

"The purpose of this amendment was clearly to be able to raise an army quickly when the country had no standing army. The British were still on our doorstep ... In those days, wars were fought with single-shot, muzzle-loaded rifles."

KABA Note: Isn't it interesting that when it is a question of requiring employers to allow lawful property in employees locked cars, the antis are prating about "a business's right to set their own policies." But when they don't like a business's policy it is perfectly acceptable to attempt to coerce the business to accomodate their hoplophobia.
 

CA: California lawmaker would outlaw 'open carry' gun right

"A California lawmaker has stepped into a growing gun rights debate by introducing legislation that would essentially outlaw what's called the 'open carry' of unloaded weapons on public property."

"The measure, which was first introduced last month but is not expected to have its first hearing until April, is meant to address the growing 'open carry' movement, in which some gun owners have taken to meeting in coffee shops, parks, and restaurants while wearing holstered weapons to raise awareness about gun rights." ...

"In some ways, [Professor] Weisberg says, provoking a Democratic California lawmaker to go after open carry laws is a boon for the movement. 'They wanted a generic California liberal to attack them,' he says, 'and they have succeeded in that regard.'"

"In a case that had drawn attention from the Gun Owners Action League and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the Supreme Judicial Court today upheld a state law requiring trigger locks on guns kept in people's homes."

"In a victory for law enforcement and advocates of gun control, the state's highest court ruled that the Second Amendment does not currently apply to states and therefore Massachusetts has the power to regulate gun ownership."

"'We conclude that the legal obligation safely to secure firearms in [state law] is not unconstitutional,' Justice Ralph Gants wrote for the unanimous court." ...

KABA Note: And to heck with that whole state constitution, Art. XVII. stating "The people have a right to keep and to bear arms for the common defence."

"The highest court in Massachusetts on Wednesday upheld the constitutionality of a state law that requires gun owners to lock weapons in their homes, a case closely watched by both gun-control and gun-rights proponents."

"Massachusetts prosecutors argued that the law saves lives ... The Gun Owners' Action League and the Second Amendment Foundation Inc., however, pointed to a 2008 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that said people have a constitutional right to keep weapons for self-defense."

"The state Supreme Judicial Court ... unanimously agreed that the Second Amendment does not overrule the state's right to require owners to store guns safely." ...

Submitter's Note: I guess the court disregarded the studies showing that 'safe storage' laws have no effect on suicides and accidental shootings.

"A proposal to allow unrestricted open carrying of weapons was shot down by legislative procedures Wednesday in the state House of Representatives."

"But a proposal to allow those with permits to carry concealed weapons to also carry them out in the open is still alive and may be attached to another bill today, the last day House members can act on House-generated bills."

"Both proposals were filed as amendments to House Bill 2538, which would have allowed a gun owner who has a permit to carry a concealed firearm to put a loaded weapon on the dashboard or seat of a vehicle. Oklahoma only allows concealed gun permits, and gun owners with permits must conceal the weapons in their vehicles." ...

"For years, legislators fought gun owners over funding a statewide licensing program that would provide uniformity and fairness to gun owners. Legislators didn't want taxpayers to fund a gun program. Gun owners are taxpayers, too, and wanted to use tax dollars."

"In 1987, the firearms licensing law passed with a financial contingency. The Legislature insisted that the firearms program not be dependent upon ... any government funding. The NRA, Unified Sportsmen of Florida and gun owners insisted upon only being responsible for funding the program and that licensing fees only be an amount necessary to administer the program — no more, no less. ... That was the agreement."

"It did its job: It killed one of the most symbolically and pragmatically significant gun bills of this session: to do away with the state's one-per-month limit on handgun purchases."

"Now, the bill deserved to die, just not that way. One handgun-a-month is a good law. In fact, when it was championed originally by then-Gov. Doug Wilder, it had the support of the [NRA], which even promoted its passage in other states." [emphasis added] ...

"A similar bill passed the General Assembly last year but was overturned by a Davidson County court that said it was unconstitutionally vague."

"While the state is appealing the Chancery Court ruling, 'we don't know what the courts are going to do. So we would rather come back and make it clear for the permit holder where he can carry and not carry,' Rep.

"Baltimore's top prosecutor is heading to Annapolis to push state lawmakers to pass stronger gun laws."

"Baltimore State's Attorney Patricia Jessamy says she plans to appear Thursday at a Senate hearing to recommend expanding a no-parole law that has helped cut violent crime."

"Under the 2000 law, convicted felons charged with gun possession face a mandatory no-parole penalty of five years in prison. The state's attorney is pushing to increase sentences in some cases up to 15 years ..."

"Jessamy says Baltimore prosecutors have obtained hundreds of no-parole sentences for violent felons caught with firearms, which she says has led to a drop in gun crime."

KABA Note: Well which is it, felons or violent felons? Remember, putting you prescription meds in a Su thru Sa dispenser is a felony. Keeping a feather you found on a hike could be a felony under the Lacey Act. Throwing snowballs at a city plow is a felony.

"One glance at the headlines would have convinced you that a major tragedy was averted ... recently. KOMO blared: 'Customs agents nab shipment of machine guns in Tacoma.' Other news outlets pointed out the dastardly nature of the shipment. KIRO in Seattle claimed: 'Automatic Rifles Labeled As Toys Seized In Tacoma.' The Seattle Post-Intelligencer went with: 'Customs seizes gun shipment labeled 'toys.'"

"... Customs and Border Protection Area Port Director Rolando Suliveras Jr. claimed:"
"These rifles could have had far-reaching and potentially devastating ramifications ..."
