GA: Second Amendment doesn’t trump business owners’ property rights
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

Pitting business owners and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce against the National Rifle Association, the question is whether individuals who own or manage companies can forbid other individuals—employees, customers, clients and service providers—from carrying firearms in their cars onto places of business.
 

TX: 'Castle Doctrine' unlikely to alter investigations

Legislation overwhelmingly approved last week in Austin would give Texans more legal muscle when it comes to defending themselves with deadly force. But a local prosecutor said it would not likely change the way such cases are investigated.

Senate Bill 378, known as the "Castle Doctrine," essentially states that a person is allowed to use deadly force — without an obligation to retreat — if someone has unlawfully entered or attempted to enter that person's home, automobile or business.

A year ago, the Legislature changed the rules for claiming self-defense when facing criminal charges. Before, a defendant had to prove to the court that someone’s life was at risk, justifying the use of force. But lawmakers decided that prosecutors should have the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a self-defense claim is false.
 

UT: Hurricane man kills attacker, police say in self defense

The Hurricane police are investigating an attack that resulted in a shooting death. They say the shooting was justified.

There are still a lot of questions, but here's what we know based on information from the police and neighbors. Just after 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, two men show up at the door of apartment "C" at 167 East 200 North in Hurricane. At least one of the men had a pipe and uses it to start beating the man who answered the door.

The man tried to get away while the beating continued. He somehow got a gun and fires at least twice. One shot fatally wounds the attacker. The other man flees.
 

Ten Threats To Our Ohio Gun Rights In 2007

In August of 2006, the Buckeye Firearms Association produced a list of ten people who are threatening your Ohio gun rights. Since then, Ohio gun owners successfully passed HB347 and helped elect several pro-gun candidates. To some degree, all of the people who were previously listed are still threatening your Ohio gun rights, but there are now new threats that need to be addressed. Shockingly, a large number of the threats on our Ohio gun rights are coming from OUTSIDE of Ohio!

In order to defend our rights, we have to know who is threatening them. However, there are too many threats to address all of them. The following is a list of just ten of the threats to our Ohio gun rights in 2007.

Maybe that explains why 1,000 people die every day due to guns. Anti-gun control supporters will immediately attack that statement to say, and I only quote the ignorant, to not believe it, "Guns don't kill people. People kill people!" My, with such a mind set, every gun supporter should have a degree in philosophy. Maybe then they could articulate in such a way that the blame game just might work.
 

OR: Constitution not the right target in debate over firearms

It might be a good idea to allow individual firearm ownership in the United States with little or no restriction. Or it might be a good idea to sharply restrict the possession of guns among Americans. But however such questions are resolved, we should not slaughter early American history - or assault constitutional principles - in the process. Gun advocates will need to make their case on its contemporary merits, because in fact the Constitution, specifically the Second Amendment, gives them no ammunition. An individual "right" to own firearms simply does not exist.
 

The witch hunt against gun owners

Two weeks ago, the Roanoke (Va.) Times published an online database of registered concealed handgun permit holders in the paper's community under the sanctimonious guise of "Sunshine Week." The database included both the names and street addresses of some 135,000 Virginians with permits to carry concealed weapons. Columnist Christian Trejbal patted himself on the back for making it easy to snoop on the neighbors: "I can hear the shocked indignation of gun-toters already: It's nobody's business but mine if I want to pack heat. Au contraire. Because the government handles the permitting, it is everyone's business."

MI: Cox upholds for the 2nd Amendment

A rare victory for those of us who love and respect guns was scored when a federal appeals court tossed out Washington, D.C.'s police-state gun law in a ruling that opens the door for the Supreme Court to settle once and for all whether the right to keep and bear arms belongs to the individual or the state.

And right there on the side of the good guys is Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox.

While prosecutors aren't often the best friends of the Second Amendment, Cox joined the challenge to the D.C. gun ban along with a dozen other states for two reasons: It's unconstitutional, and it doesn't work.

Misdemeanor theft cases are being filed against 10 employees and a transient suspected of pilfering the personal property of travelers at LAX, including hotel heiress Paris Hilton and singer Keyshia Cole, the City Attorney's Office announced today.

Most of the alleged thieves are employed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Transportation Security Administration, said Nick Velasquez of the City Attorney's Office.

"We're a public law office, so whenever there's a significant announcement or a significant legal actions being taken, it's our duty and obligation to tell the public ... that we are working to ensure the safety and security of travelers at LAX," Velasquez said.
 

Winchester 1895 .405 Takedown

I've always been intrigued by the 1895 Winchester, and not just because Teddy Roosevelt (pictured on the right) fancied it. The 1895 was used extensively by hunters and lawmen of the period. The Texas Rangers and Arizona Rangers were quite partial to the 1895, particularly the short carbines in .30-40 Krag. One famous old photograph of the Arizona Rangers, taken in Morenci, Arizona, during a copper-mine riot, depicts the entire Ranger force packing 1895 Winchesters.

Members of the Inland Waters Trap League aren't difficult to gauge. They have a passion for fellowship and turning orange clay pigeons into dust. It means that weather is never a question in whether they will shoot or not. From September through May, through sunshine and rain, fog and clear skies, pleasant temperatures and barrel-frosting cold, you can count on many of the league's 213 members to gather on schedule at one of the 10 area gun clubs that host a monthly shoot.

Three more U.S. gun shops have settled a lawsuit accusing them of selling too many firearms that later fell into the hands of New York criminals. The shops, in Marietta, Ga., Youngstown, Ohio, and North Myrtle Beach were among 27 gun dealers sued by the city of New York last year as part of its unorthodox legal battle against the firearms industry. City lawyers had argued that the shops failed to abide by rules aimed at preventing illegal sales known as straw purchases, when one person buys a gun on behalf of someone else, usually someone who can't legally own it.
 

NY: Behind the scenes of the NYPD crackdown at the GOP convention

It was a late August afternoon in 2004, and as Michael Schiller backpedaled on Fulton Street filming the mostly older crowd with his Super-8mm camera, it struck him that this might be the most boring political protest of all time.

Searched, handcuffed, and with property seized, the bewildered -- Schiller among them -- were transported to a makeshift detention center so filthy that 40 cops assigned there would later file medical complaints.

What happened that day began with a decision made five months earlier by the NYPD to impose a "no summons" policy at the RNC. That meant instead of issuing tickets, as is the norm, they arrested 1,450 people for violations, forcing them to go "through the system."

Many legal scholars anticipate that the U.S. Supreme Court will be called upon to make a final determination on the meaning of the Second Amendment to the Constitution and the rights of gun owners. It’s the result of a recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that struck down a gun control law in the district, one that bars residents from keeping handguns in their homes.

NEW YORK -- A judge sentenced a man to 240 years in prison Wednesday for taking hostages in a bar and telling patrons that "white people are going to burn tonight."

He told police he had left the Brooklyn housing project where he lived and taken the subway to go look for "happy" white people to avenge the mistreatment of blacks.

He shot and wounded three people, including a police officer, and sprayed kerosene on several customers and threatened to set them on fire. Two women caught Johnson off guard and tackled him, and a policeman shot him.

"[R]ead the Second Amendment for yourself. Despite the maunderings and obfuscations of the gun-grabbers, it's perfectly clear. There isn't a gun law in this country that isn't, in itself, illegal. And don't give me any crap about the Tenth Amendment, either. Neither it nor "home rule" confer any authority to violate people's Constitutional rights. Nor is there any way, legally or logically, that a right can be restricted or regulated, John Ashcroft and others like him to the contrary. Under Article VI, Section II, no law that enfringes the right of the people to keep and bear arms should last a instant longer than it takes a decent judge to strike it down.

If the Big Quake hits West Tennessee, Sen. Mark Norris doesn't want police to confiscate everyone's guns.

That's why Norris is again sponsoring legislation that says "state government does not have the right to suspend our Second Amendment rights (to keep and bear arms) during a declared emergency."

The bill is scheduled to come up for a vote in the Senate in Nashville on Monday, but minus the support of Gov. Phil Bredesen. In fact, Bredesen's staff asked Norris earlier this month to consider "halting further action" on the bill.
 

Dr. Lott: Tape of Guiliani saying that 86 to 88 percent of guns should not be sold in the United States
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Here is a video tape of Rudy Guiliani while he was mayor saying that gun makers "are producing 6 to 7 times more guns than the legal market would demand and therefore they would have to know that they are supplying an illegal market." He initially says that this number is 3 to 4 times more guns than the legal market would demand, but changes it to the higher number. In any case, it is not a big difference. 3 to 4 times means 75 to 80 percent of guns shouldn't be sold. 6 to 7 times means that 85.7 to 87.5 percent of guns shouldn't be sold.

D.C. Mothers Debate Gun Ban

NPR Rough Cuts With Michele Martin
The host interviews two DC mothers, one pro-gun and one anti-gun. Listen to the audio. Here are some excerpts:
“It’s a constitutional right!”
“Listen, I’m not a slave anymore. That stuff was in the past. I’m not three-fifths of person, nor am I even trying to act like I am. Cause that’s not my mentality. I’m a free black woman, and I’m reading the constitution and it says I have the right to bear arms, just like I think I have the right to have full representation in Congress. Just because I’m in the District of Columbia I don’t think that we have to be ‘less than’.”


 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing of concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. But it should not be forgotten, that it is not only a part of the right that is secured by the constitution; it is the right entire and complete, as it existed at the adoption of the constitution; and if any portion of that right be impaired, immaterial how small the part may be, and immaterial the order of time at which it be done, it is equally forbidden by the constitution. [Bliss vs. Commonwealth, 12 Ky. (2 Litt.) 90, at 92, and 93, 13 Am. Dec. 251 (1822)
