VA: Gun rights: I’ll second that amendment

On 9 March 2007, liberals lost a gun fight. The U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia decided to restore to citizens of Washington, D. C., a Constitutional right that had been denied them for 31 years. In a 2 to 1 decision, the court decided that the city’s law banning all handguns, requiring shotguns and rifles to be disassembled or locked while in the home, and additionally requiring a permit to keep such guns in the home, was a violation of the right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

Mr. Chemerinsky claimed the court "interpreted the Second Amendment as bestowing on individuals a right to have guns." No, it said, "[T]he Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. That right existed prior to the formation of the new government under the Constitution . . . ." In recognizing that the right predated the Constitution, the court recognized that it must be individually held.
 

IL: Handgun bans' logic got shot full of holes

Our good and well-meaning friends in Chicago, Wilmette and other towns that have outlawed the possession of handguns, even in the sanctity and privacy of the home, might want to notice that the nation's second-highest court has tossed out a similar weapons ban.

By overturning a Washington, D.C., handgun ban 10 days ago, the district's federal appeals court affirmed that bearing arms is an individual right, in existence even prior to the writing of the Constitution. The ruling puts the court at odds with 10 of the 11 other federal appeals courts, which have ruled that bearing arms is a just a collective right, meant only to ensure that the civilians who serve in state militias are armed.
 

DC: State of the Second Amendment: Does It Apply in the District of Columbia?

But even if the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case, there remains a potentially significant obstacle that may prevent the justices from using the case to resolve whether the "individual right" or "collective right" view of the Second Amendment is proper. The obstacle, which is the central focus of D.C. Circuit Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson's dissenting opinion, is that the Second Amendment may not apply to the District of Columbia.

It takes a lot of history to explain how a retired Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park ranger had anything to do with last Friday’s federal appeals court decision overturning Washington D.C.’s handgun ban.

But history, especially of the constitution and its second amendment, is what David Young is all about.

"The Population of the Nanny State, being composed of irresponsible rednecks, rejects and retards, must not be allowed to have Arms."
- The Second Amendment as seen through liberal eyes, according to Human Events columnist Mack Johnson.

That's how many on the left would indeed phrase the amendment, but now we have a substantial opinion from an influential federal appeals court saying they are wrong.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a constitutional right of individuals to keep handguns suitable for militia duty in the home under the Second Amendment in Parker v. District of Columbia (March 9, 2007). Writing for a 2-1 panel majority, Judge Laurence Silberman convincingly demonstrated that any other conclusion would require flouting language carefully chosen by the Founding Fathers and the Second Amendment's self-defense purposes. His opinion sets a standard of constitutional interpretation to which the wise and honest may repair.

Maryland Shall Issue, Inc. notes that although apologies are nice, actions speak louder than words. During the period of slavery, CITIZENS were required to have, and to carry weapons for the protection of themselves and their community whenever they traveled away from home, but SLAVES could only carry weapons if they had a license to do so.

Local police are in the forefront of a nationwide move by law enforcement to upgrade their firepower in the face of high-powered weapons used by criminals.
"I don't want our officers outgunned," Chief Timothy Codispoti said. "We have an obligation to protect the community. This provides a greater deterrent to violent crime."
To meet the increasing threat of criminal violence, Codispoti has instituted a requirement that all patrol sergeants have fully automatic weapons in their vehicles. Sergeants are receiving specialized training on the operation of the M-4, an assault weapon currently used by American troops in Iraq.

Getting guns off the street is not enough to stop violent crime, a group of lawmakers said yesterday. You have to stop the bullets, too. "For far too long we have ignored the relationship between bullets and gun crimes," state Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn), a former NYPD captain, said as he held a hollow-point slug. "We can no longer allow this item, this bullet, to be that silent partner." Adams said he was introducing legislation that would mandate the tracking of ammunition and force buyers to register the bullets they purchase.

The Dodge Ram weaved closely behind her, following her from lane to lane.

Bernadette Houghton Headd -- who was enduring stress from caring for sick loved ones -- was convinced she would be run off the highway.

And she snapped.

Police say that Headd pulled her 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier alongside the pickup as the two vehicles traveled down I-94 in Harrison Township last month.

She then grabbed the 9mm pistol she's been licensed to carry for nine years, pointed it out of the window and fired at the tires of the truck driven by a New Baltimore man, police say.

Submitters Note: She will be the anti's postergirl...

A gun control bill currently making its way through the Illinois Senate could prove to be the "coup de grace" to the state's seriously ailing finances. The bill in question, SB16, would require the registration of certain semiautomatic firearms within 90 days of the bill's signing by the governor. The ISRA estimates that there may be upwards of 10 million affected firearms in the hands of law-abiding Illinois citizens. To remain on the 90-day schedule, the state would have to hire approximately 7,000 new employees to process in excess of 111,000 registration forms per day.

A Michigan State police sergeant is in custody and facing charges.

Michigan State Police Sgt. Kevin Michael Hardoin, 45, of Chesterfield Township, was arrested on Monday after investigators said he used the Internet to solicit minors and send them sexually explicit material, according to a news release from the attorney general's office.

Hardoin began chatting online with two girls who he believed to be 13 and 14 years old, but were actually investigators posing as minors, according to the news release.

Investigators said Hardoin used a computer to chat with the "girls" and used a webcam to perform explicit acts while they watched.
