"Once again when faced with a controversy, Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels is reviving his plan to ban legally-carried firearms from city property, and the Second Amendment Foundation today promises once again to immediately take him to court."

"'This time around,' said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb, 'Mayor Nickels needs to raise this issue to distract public attention from the political smell arising from the snow-plowing investigation. We remind the mayor that his office has been warned by Attorney General Rob McKenna that neither he, nor the city, has the authority to enact such a ban under state preemption.'"

" ... Gottlieb observed ... 'Greg Nickels is the mayor of Seattle, not the emperor of a city-state.'" ...

"'The NRA is asking gunmen to refrain from mass shootings while key gun bills are before legislators,' says a newscaster in a recent editorial cartoon."

"Say that! On a month that began with the Alabama, Illinois church and Germany shootings and ended with the Oakland police killings--a Miami mass killing, a Turlock, CA church shooting and the Mexico shootings not even making the public radar's--law makers are not thinking of gun owners as an oppressed minority."

"In fact when police are killed with assault weapons it takes the wind out of the gun lobby's Good-Guys-Need-To-Be-Armed-Against-Bad-Guys argument not to mention its AK-47s-Should-Be-Street-Legal-Because-We-Need-To Defend-Ourselves-and-Our-Families argument ..." ...

"THE PROBLEM: Guns accounted for more than half of the deaths resulting from domestic violence in Maryland from June 2007 to July 2008. The solution, according to some lawmakers: more guns. The Maryland Senate may vote as early as today on an amendment that would make it easier for victims of domestic violence to obtain guns. In theory, empowering victims could discourage potential abusers. In practice, adding guns to an already combustible situation is likely to lead to more violence. The Senate should reject the amendment." ...

"'Our polices help enable this cross-border violence,' said Helmke at a news conference in Washington D.C.

"If there is a grain of hope to be gathered from a loss so tragic, it's that last weekend's horrific events will help end the debate on an unresolved policy issue that has resulted in thousands of deaths and helped sustain veritable demilitarized zones in some of our nation's largest cities."

"In Oakland, a city already struggling with high crime and gun violence, the deaths of two officers gunned down with an AK-47 qualify city officials to lend their voices to any national debate on the issue." ...

But Tennessee's lawmakers don't seem very interested in that, or in a range of other vital issues.

One man was killed and another seriously wounded in a shootout inside a Miami Burger King on Tuesday, officials said.

Police said a man wearing a ski mask walked into the store at Biscayne Boulevard and 54th Street and demanded money from a clerk.

A customer, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled a gun, said Officer Jeff Giordano, a Miami police spokesman.

The customer and robber exchanged fire.

The robber was shot dead at the scene.

The customer, who had several gunshot wounds, was taken to Ryder Trauma Center in serious but stable condition, said Lt. Ignatius Carroll, a Miami Fire Rescue spokesman.

At about 4 p.m., officials got several 911 calls reporting people shot inside the Burger King.

"The gun doesn’t belong to you and might not even be in your possession, perhaps having been brought into your home by someone else without your knowledge;"

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A proposed new Albany County law that would require gun shops to register the ammunition it sells — a controversial measure that has brought out Second Amendment advocates locally, and across the country – is on hold.

Legislator Bryan Clenahan, chairman of the Law Committee, sent the measure Monday night to Albany County Attorney Craig Denning for a ruling on its constitutionality.

That means the Law Committee — to where the proposal was forwarded during a meeting of the full legislature earlier this month — will have no further comment on the law until a decision is made by Denning. Tonight’s scheduled public hearing on the matter is cancelled until further notice, Clenahan said.

Delegate David Walker, D-Clay, the lead sponsor, said he never faced such a threat, but is willing to back the bill." ...
