CO: Hysteria trumps self-defense on 'Make My Day' gun bill
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

Hysteria trumped reason yet again at the Colorado State Capitol when a Senate committee killed the so-called "Make My Day Better" bill on a party-line vote.

Responsible gun owners regularly find themselves subjected to this kind of treatment by wet-diaper, nanny-state liberals who believe that any Colorado citizen with a gun is barely capable of suppressing some ravenous urge to shoot everyone who casts so much as a cross-eyed glance.

House Bill 1011 was sound and reasonable, extending to workers in a business the right to protect themselves against an imminent criminal threat - the same right that Coloradans have enjoyed in their homes since 1985.

In America's Murder Capital, at least one of the many crimes of an incompetent government has been addressed - and a lot of citizens in Washington, D.C. are breathing a bit easier. Earlier this week the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals declared the city's decades-old ban on personal firearms in the home to be unconstitutional.

Now, more than ever, the relationship between the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the state's sportsmen should be one based upon trust -- with a large dose of understanding thrown in for good measure. That has never been more obvious, especially in light of preliminary approval given by the board of commissioners to several proposals at the agency's January meeting.

As the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit and Bataan Strike Group continue to conduct maritime security operations in U.S. Naval Forces Central Command's area of operations, the MEU's elements are working to ensure that personnel who carry the M-9 service pistol are ready to use the close-quarters combat weapon. Marines from each part of the MEU recently participated in combat pistol ranges on the flight deck and flight elevators here to enhance overall familiarity with the weapon and to introduce troops to firing situations that simulate the unknowns of combat.

The Supreme Court has avoided spelling out the meaning of the Second Amendment's right to bear arms for nearly 70 years. But after a ruling Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, it might be difficult for the high court to sidestep the issue any longer.

"...I have wrote to the Committee of New York, this day, requesting them to send me those Arms which were taken from the disaffected in that Government, the Congress interesting themselves in this request, will doubtless have a good effect. I have sent Officers into the Country with Money to purchase Arms in the different Towns, some have returned and brought in a few, many are still out, what their success will be I cannot determine..."

AN army sergeant accused of stockpiling an arsenal of stolen weapons and explosives feared Australia could come under imminent attack from insurgents, a court has heard. Ian Dudley Read, 53, of Puckapunyal, is accused of stealing high-powered weaponry from Puckapunyal army base.

Sgt Read, head of the base's school of artillery, kept the stolen weapons loaded and combat-ready, Shepparton Magistrates' Court was told yesterday.

He allegedly amassed a war chest over five years including an F1 sub-machinegun, an F1 machinegun, two SKS assault rifles, 14 unregistered hand guns, 26 hand grenades, 27 high-explosive rifle-launched grenades, 13 unregistered rifles and up to 500,000 live rounds of ammunition.
 

Dr. Lott: The All American Gun

"Did you know that in New York City through 1969 virtually all the public high schools had riflery teams?"

"Thousands of students carried their rifles on subways, buses and streets on their way to school, when they went to practice in the afternoon and on their way home. And until 1963, all commercial pilots were required to carry guns and were allowed to carry guns until 1987."

"Gun laws have certainly changed over time."

"Today towns such as Kennesaw, Ga., Greenfeld, Idaho, and Geuda Springs, Kan., which all require residents to own guns, are considered odd. But Clayton Cramer's terrific new book, 'Armed America,' shows that, in fact, gun ownership has been deeply woven into this country's fabric since the colonial period." ...

After several failed public attempts to build a world-class shooting range, Sturgis and Meade County can now claim to have a new attraction, which officials hope will draw marksmen from throughout the region and nationwide. The Buffalo Chip Shooting Complex is on land owned by the Buffalo Chip Campground. Much of the complex is ready for business, but there are some projects that must still be completed. The rifle range, with stations has targets at 100-, 200-, 300- and 600-yard distances. The pistol range, when finished, will include six covered shooting lanes with targets at 25 and 50 yards.

Hunting with a rifle is safer for humans and more humane for animals, but is still illegal in Chautauqua County. On Saturday, hunters and elected officials discussed pending legislation that would make rifle hunting legal in New York during a meeting at the Falconer Rod and Gun Club. Area residents were given the chance to express their feelings about the rifle law with area elected officials, including state Sen. Cathy Young, R-Olean, who hosts a trap shoot every year; state Assemblyman Bill Parment, D-North Harmony; and Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards, who has been an avid hunter since he was a child.

More than 1,000 people turned out Saturday to the NCAA Rifle Championships at University of Alaska Fairbanks, the largest crowd ever for the national event. The University of Alaska Fairbanks won the championship again, their eighth title in nine years. Perhaps those most surprised by the crowd were the athletes themselves. “You’re not really paying attention to what’s going on behind you, so I wasn’t really aware until I turned around,” said senior Kristina Fehlings of the University of Nebraska. “It’s really neat. I was taking pictures just of the crowd.”

OAKLAND -- For a decade Bishop Bob Jackson, head of Acts Full Gospel Church in East Oakland has worked to curb violence in the city.

But on Sunday his 7,000-member congregation was personally rocked by it when parishioner Tanya McCall was fatally shot in the church parking lot just before the 8 a.m. service.

Jackson who has organized gun exchange programs said the killing should put city leaders on notice about the urgent need to get guns off the street.

Submitters Note: This guy has a member of his church gunned down in the church parking lot and his first response is to talk about banning guns. Unbelievable!

Interpreting the Second Amendment broadly, a federal appeals court in Washington yesterday struck down a gun control law in the District of Columbia that bars residents from keeping handguns in their homes.
The decision was the first from a federal appeals court to hold a gun control law unconstitutional on the ground that the Second Amendment protects the rights of individuals, as opposed to the collective rights of state militias. ...
Linda Singer, the District’s acting attorney general, said the decision was “a huge setback.” ...

Michigan is a 'must-issue' state for concealed weapons. If you have no felony record and want to carry a gun, you must be given a permit.

Ask a government agency for a document, however, and it's almost a certainty that you'll be hit with some combination of delays, refusals, redacted information and onerous fees.
 

Column: Politcally incorrect comments doom Zumbo, aid anti-gun supporters

Recent definitions of assault weapons often categorize them by cosmetics....

Well, excuse me, but if you are in imminent danger from someone with a bayonet, you are equally in danger from the same person yielding a pitchfork, a baseball bat, a kitchen knife, or, for that matter, a sharp stick. This is why such legislation is ludicrous.

That Zumbo, a member of the National Rifle Association who had attended eight of the group's last 10 conventions, could fall into that same trap defies explanation. But his off-hand observation was deemed unforgivable by the gun lobby. And he is paying dearly.

An Ann Arbor police officer faces possible disciplinary action after officials say he left his loaded gun and equipment belt unattended in a jurors' restroom at the Washtenaw County Circuit Court last week.

Chief Circuit Judge Archie Brown said Tuesday that it was ironic that the incident occurred on the heels of the reversal of a controversial weapons policy opposed by police that included a partial weapon ban in the courthouse.
