Mr. Stanley went on to say, "One thing I understand about the Constitution is that it protects the right to keep and bear arms. The Denver Municipal Code under which I was originally arrested is unconstitutional and will be overturned."

Stanley, along with another supporter were arrested for openly carrying a gun in violation of Denver Revised Municipal Code 38-117.5(b) on December 15, 2001, during a rally celebrating the Anniversary of the Bill of Rights.

Equipped with police radios and uniforms, the ministers report crimes, assist sworn officers, offer victims assistance and quell tensions in the community and in schools.

True to his word, University of Utah President Bernie Machen on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, seeking a court ruling that the school's long-standing gun ban is legal.

The complaint -- described by both sides as a "friendly lawsuit" aimed at settling the politically charged dispute -- was filed in U.S. District Court for Utah exactly one week after the end of the 2002 legislative session. Call it the case of the Ivory Tower vs. Capitol Hill.

Probes fired by a stun weapon may have been deflected by a Minneapolis man's clothing, reducing the weapon's effectiveness during a confrontation that ended with the Somali immigrant's death, the weapon's maker said Tuesday.

Steve Tuttle said he doubts that the Advanced Taser itself failed. He speculated that Abu Kassim Jeilani's clothing kept the electrical current delivered by the Taser from disabling him.

Target: H&R Block.

The issue here is another controversy over an affiliate marketing program. But in this case, it was a marketing agreement between H&R Block and the NRA via the NRA magazine, First Freedom.

Now, I know what some of you are saying: "Go to bat for the NRA??" When you read the complete press release below, you as that Real American Warrior must say to yourself: "The NRA may be sons a bitches, but in this case, they're OUR sons a bitches."

Senate Bill 224, the Gun Accountability Act of 2002, would require "a valid Maryland driver's license or photographic identification card with an approved firearms purchase designation for the purchase or receipt of a regulated firearm."

The bill currently is under review in the Senate by the Judicial Proceedings Committee.

"I don't like it," said Judicial Proceedings Chairman Sen. Walter Baker, D-Upper Shore. "This is the state of Maryland, not the People's Republic of Maryland."

Around the country, gun-rights groups are waging what some portray as a deliberately gradual, one-step-at-a-time effort to ease state laws governing the carrying of a concealed weapon.

Organizations such as the National Rife Association and Gun Owners of America say their efforts - under way in more than half the states - are no greater this year than before. But they say the Sept. 11 attacks may have provided some momentum.

You can't keep a good dog - or a good idea - down.

Much like a dedicated retriever that won't give up the chase, an organization that provides field trial competition for a broad range of hunting dogs has been revived at an eastern Colorado game bird club.

The name, North American Gun Dog Association, only begins to tell a story that began a little more than three years ago amid grand acclaim, only to sadly crumble beneath sundry organizational woes.

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

The above is the entire text of the second amendment to the US Constitution. Using today’s language, this amendment is difficult to decipher. Removing the first comma helps, making the amendment read as: "Since a well regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state…"

Gilbert MacConnell went into the police station for a job interview. He wound up getting arrested.

MacConnell, who is 35 and lives in Kent, wanted to be a patrol officer. He already had passed written and oral exams as well as a physical agility test, and the next step was a face-to-face chat with police brass.

During his Feb. 28 interview, police say, MacConnell bluntly stated that he owned a handgun, even though he lacked a permit to carry one.

"Seattle police guild President Ken Saucier said he first noticed a problem in December when security guards at the Seattle Stadium Exhibition Hall wouldn't let him into the big motorcycle show with his concealed service pistol, even though he was carrying a badge and is one of the department's foremost firearms experts."

"Now, after other off-duty officers from Seattle and King County have been denied entry into large public events because they were carrying their guns, it appears the management of most of Seattle's largest venues have agreed to change security policies to let them in, guns and all."

"Requests for handgun permits in Saratoga County rose dramatically after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, according to statistics released last week by Saratoga County Sheriff James D. Bowen."

"Zacharewicz said it can take three to six months to obtain a pistol permit in Saratoga County. First, a person goes to a gun shop and gives a down payment on a weapon. This gets the applicant serial numbers and a bill of sale to take to the Sheriff's Office in Milton. The person also must provide four character references for the application, photos, a videotape and fingerprints."

KABA NOTE: According to this report, police were on the scene for a whole hour before the murder/suicide took place. Not only is this a case proving the non-functionality of a "restraining order," it's a case of "Cops Have No Duty to Protect You".

"Other interest groups will no longer be part of this program with H&R Block. These [anti-gun] groups should do some more research before they mislead the public," Whitley said.
