Anti-gun Maryland Democrats set out to prove a right delayed is a right denied

"Maryland State Delegate Jon Cardin (D) has apparently decided he cannot tolerate the fact that prospective gun buyers in his state can only be forced to endure a delay of a week when buying a gun. That limitation is a function of the fact that under current Maryland gun law, if the background check--which in Maryland is conducted by the state, rather than through the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS)--has after seven days still not decided whether or not the would-be buyer is eligible, the sale (or rental, or other type of transfer) may proceed, even without the check completed." ...
 

10 Rules For Using A Handgun For Personal Protection

"Humans do a lot of things every day—from the time you dig your eye boogers out in the morning until you put on your Batman pajamas at night. Most of these are mundane, simple tasks we don’t even think about. But even though we don’t think about these things as we do them, we look like we know what we are doing."

"Your personal protection should be just as incidental. It shouldn’t be complicated, and it shouldn’t be some super tactical routine dreamed up by a tactard on TV or down at the local range. It should be as seamlessly integrated into your lifestyle as kissing your wife or husband on the cheek before bed, or making sure your fly is zipped when you leave the restroom." ...

The Christian Science Monitor's Gun Control Lollapalooza
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"In one fell swoop, a March 11th column in The Christian Science Monitor was used to criticize the NRA's lobbying for gun rights, the 'notion that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to own a gun as a tool for self-defense,' and the existence of 'stand your ground' laws in Florida, as well as nearly half the states in the union."

"Written by Patrik Jonsson, the column juxtaposes 'protesters gathered for a [March 10th] anti-gun rally in Tallahassee' with the NRA, described as having '[moderated] its rhetoric and legislative agenda in the wake of the' heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary, but now preparing to 'rev up its lobbying machine and put it back into high gear.'" ...
 

Cop: I'd Love to 'Bang down Your Door and Come for Your Gun'

"How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to 'kick your door in'? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment."

"The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state. As for Cinque and the exchange with his 'old friend' -- Branford Police Officer Joseph Peterson -- which occurred on Facebook, Mikael Thalen at Infowars.com writes:" ...
 

Dr. Carson’s prescription for gun control

... "Every candidate wishes he had a bottle full of what Ben Carson brews every time he steps up to the podium. But natural charisma and intelligence aren’t enough in politics. Issues and positions matter too, especially in the Republican Party..."

"Republican voters, on the other hand, allow for much more limited rhetorical flexibility with their most sensitive issues, especially gun control. And that’s where Ben Carson runs into a bit of tough sledding, because he has expressed some sympathy for gun control efforts. This lead to a fair number of 'nice man, but I could never vote for him for President' assessments from conservatives." ...

"Vivek Murthy, Obama’s nominee for U.S. surgeon general, who also conveniently founded 'Doctors for Obama' (later 'Doctors for America') in 2008, is really anti-gun, a stance which the DailyMail attributes to his abhorrence of Saturday morning cartoons."

"He told the Miami Herald in 1994 that television cartoons were responsible 'for the growing problem of kids and violence,' and that:" ...

"A bill being considered in Florida would allow schools to designate a trained employee to carry a firearm for the protection of themselves and students in the event of a violent situation."

"The bill, called the School Safety Bill, would allow persons with military or law enforcement backgrounds and concealed carry permit holders to carry a firearm in school. The person must undergo additional training and must be approved by the local school board."

"Both opponents and proponents of the bill testified at the hearing. Although, many of the opponents, including the parents of Trayvon Martin, used the opportunity to testify against Florida’s stand your ground law, which has nothing to do with this bill." ...

"The 99-member Ohio House of Representatives in November 2013 passed a bill aimed at strengthening the Second Amendment rights of its 11 million residents, but Black legislators and activists say a provision that is akin to the controversial Stand Your Ground laws in 23 other states has to go. They are fighting to kill the measure before it moves out of the state Senate." ...

"Never at a lack for ingenuity in lodging Second Amendment cases at the Supreme Court, six gun advocates have asked Justice Anthony Kennedy to enjoin the City of Sunnyvale, California, from enforcing a new law that bans magazines with larger than a ten-round capacity."

"The case is Fyock v. City of Sunnyvale. The application and a brief description is now available on SCOTUSblog's home page."

"They appealed to the Federal District Court, which refused to stay enforcement pending appeal. The Ninth Circuit also refused to stay the ban. J. Kennedy, who haswith jurisdiction over the geographic area of this case, has asked the city to respond by tomorrow afternoon." ...

NJ: Little Silver cop Steven Solari gets five years for punching handcuffed man in the head, lying about it (video available)

"Supporters of Steven Solari on Thursday portrayed the 15-year veteran of the Little Silver police force as a trusted friend, a model officer and a dedicated community volunteer."

"But that did not sway state Superior Court Judge Francis J. Vernoia, who sentenced the 40-year-old officer to five years in state prison. The judge said he found the nature of the misconduct that Solari was convicted of last year — beating a handcuffed prisoner and then lying about it — outweighed what good he did during what was portrayed as a spotless life." ...

"In December, a 75-year-old man who was believed to be homeless died in Burlington County Jail while strapped in a 'turtle suit' and lying in a pool of urine and feces, according to a supervisor inside the facility."

"The man’s name was Robert Taylor. And according to this inside source with more than 10 years of employment at the jail, Taylor was a recurring inmate; he was also an alcoholic."

"'I was there when Taylor came in,' the source said. 'And he looked really bad. A couple of us told the medical staff that he needed to go to the hospital because he was detoxing.'"

"But according to the source, Taylor was not taken to the hospital because two officers were required to escort him there ..." ...

"A number of East Williamsburg and Bushwick residents were surprised by a combined federal and NYPD raid on Devoe Street early Sunday morning. Some were disturbed by a loud, low-flying helicopter, while others were simply stopped from going home because the street was blocked off."

"Witnesses spotted a big Department of Homeland Security truck as well as DHS agents toting machine guns as they raided 221 Devoe Street. The NYPD was also involved, and one officer told a resident that the bust turned up "kilos of heroin." (Apparently the drugs may have been from out of the country, hence DHS.)" ...

SC: Spartanburg SC Sheriff On Proposed 'Stand Your Ground' Repeal: Not On My Watch

"Reacting to a Democrat-led proposal to repeal "stand your ground" in South Carolina, Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said it won't happen on his watch."

"According to GoUpstate.com, the repeal was introduced by state representative Harold Mitchell (D-Spartanburg), chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus."

"Mitchell's bill 'would limit the ability to use deadly force against someone illegally and forcibly entering a home, business, or occupied vehicle.' He said such a change is necessary because, 'we were taught in Sunday School to retreat.'"

"Sheriff Wright said the idea of taking away or limiting self-defense is 'absolutely ridiculous' and he views the proposed appeal 'as a violation of Second Amendment rights.'" ...
