AZ: Colleges to allow guns on campus?

Arizona lawmakers hope to stem the wave of unarmed students killed in campus slayings through a plan that would let adults carry firearms onto the grounds of the state's universities.

"The police got to both the Virginia Tech murder scene and the New Life Church [in Colorado] in about six minutes," noted Larry Pratt, the chief of Gun Owners of America. "At Virginia Tech, 30 people died. At New Life, two died in the parking lot and once the bad guy got inside the building he was engaged by (armed) security team volunteers and nobody else died. In fact, he was finished in about 30 seconds."

That, he said, ought to illustrate the issue as clear as anything.

An eastern Kentucky man is in the hospital after being shot Saturday morning while allegedly trespassing on a neighbor's property.

Police tell LEX 18 News the shooting happened on Patoker Road just before 9am and according to neighbors it's a case of self defense. Witnesses say Everett J. Gayheart, known by many as Jimmy, killed his neighbor's dog then went gunning for the dog's owner. Police say the property owner, whose name has not yet been released, shot Gayheart. "He ran back in the house and hollered what are you doing. he come back to the door, raised the gun on him again. He had a shotgun with a birdshot in it and shot him to keep from being killed," said neighbor Dave Trimble.

By LAURENCE H. TRIBE

The Supreme Court is set to hear oral argument later this month in a politically charged gun-control case from the District of Columbia. The case involves a city resident who contends that the District is violating his rights under the Second Amendment with a citywide ban on handguns.

Gun enthusiasts on the right are all but daring justices who protect a woman's right to choose, nowhere mentioned in the Constitution, to trash the "right of the people to keep and bear arms," enshrined in the text of the Second Amendment.
 

WV: 'Castle Doctrine' Law Appropriate

A bill approved by the Legislature and sent to Gov. Joe Manchin last week would merely codify what we think most West Virginians already view as a solid principle. It is the “Castle Doctrine,” as the bill has come to be known — the belief that a person’s home is his or her “castle” and that there’s nothing wrong with defending it.

At least 20 other states already have “Castle Doctrine” laws that shield their residents who, while in their homes — or anywhere else they have a legal right to be — use “reasonable and proportionate force” in defense of themselves, loved ones or even property.
 

WY: Senate passes "castle doctrine" bill after debate

Supporters of the bill say Wyoming needs to spell out that citizens have the right to self-defense. They say the principle goes back to the English common-law saying that "a man's home is his castle."

Sen. Charles Scott, a Republican from Casper, voted for the bill. But he says that it should be amended to remove the "no-retreat" language and limit it to issues of civil liability for those who use deadly force.

Ed.: It isn't castle doctrine if you still have to retreat and are criminally liable for defending yourself in your own house. 'Tort reform' would be more accurate.

RICHMOND - A pair of Republican delegates and a pair of Virginia college students said Monday that campuses would be safer if the state’s universities allowed professors and students with concealed carry permits to attend classes wearing firearms.

Del. Robert G. Marshall, R-Manassas, said the General Assembly responded to last April’s Virginia Tech shooting tragedy by passing some legislation, including a bill allowing a concealed carry permit holder to take a gun into a restaurant serving alcohol.

By John Stossel

Murder is against the law everywhere. No one intent on murder will be stopped by the prospect of committing a lesser crime such as illegal possession of a firearm. The intellectuals and politicians who make pious declarations about controlling guns should explain how their gunless utopia is to be realized.

While they search for their magic bullet, defenseless people are dying. That's because laws that make it difficult or impossible to carry a concealed handgun deter one group of people: law-abiding citizens who might have used a gun to stop crime. Gun laws are laws against self-defense.

Oh what a mighty web the NRA's leaders weave, when they practice to deceive

NRA's right wing attack dogs have been having quite a time this past week trying to weave a web of deception designed to discredit me and the leadership of the American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA). In my recent diaries at Daily Kos (here and here), I have carefully laid out how AHSA, a new progressive gun rights organization, tapped into the concern of rural hunters and shooters over NRA's failure to address access to public land and environmental issues resulting in a stunning NRA defeat in the hotly contested 2006 Missouri US Senate race. I'm sure many Kos readers were as surprised as I was that NRA, once again, acknowledged AHSA's campaign made the difference for Claire McCaskill in that key 2006 Senate race.

Griffin police spokesman Corporal Bryan Clanton says the woman was flown by helicopter to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, where she was pronounced dead.

Montgomery County Shooting Complex is a local success story. Since it opened in October 2006, more than 6,000 people have used the facility. Because it's one of the few sites in the country with an Olympic skeet and trap range, the U.S. Olympic Skeet and Trap Team has expressed an interest in training and shooting at the range. The Archery Trade Association also may build an Olympic archery facility that could attract more Olympic attention.

I'm going to enjoy writing about a general election campaign against Barack Obama. As Corner contributor Dave Kopel and David Bernstein note, Barack Obama proposed a few years ago a federal law against licensed firearms dealers operating within five miles of a school or park. As Kopel notes, "Every town I've ever visited which has more than a few dozen inhabitants has either a school or a park. Hypothesizing that the ban would apply to city parks (e.g., Central Park in New York City) but not to National Parks, pick a geographical region, and describe where a licensed firearms dealer could operate.

His victims include a 7-year-old Harlem girl shot in the stomach by her brother and a Brooklyn bodega worker forced to kill a robber - just two of dozens of crimes committed with guns illegally peddled by a South Carolina pawn-shop owner, authorities say. Rogue businessman Larry Mickalis, of Summerville, SC, is allegedly responsible for illegally selling 77 guns, including some to known felons, that have been tied to at least that many crimes in the Big Apple. Mickalis is one of 15 gun dealers who allowed weapons to be sold illegally - effectively dumping them on New York City streets - according to a lawsuit filed by Mayor Bloomberg in 2006.

With a showdown looming, U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks says he’s prepared to block any effort by the administration to lift the current ban on carrying loaded weapons in national parks. It’s not an idle threat. As chairman of the House Appropriations interior subcommittee, Dicks oversees the National Parks Service’s annual budget and is in a position to prevent the administration from dropping the Reagan-era ban. While the Belfair Democrat is usually reluctant to add legislative provisions to his spending bill, he’s ready to make an exception in this case even if it prompts a presidential veto. “Every now and then something rises up that needs to be fought, and this is one of them,” Dicks said.

RAPID CITY, S.D. — A South Dakota man said he was attacked by a mountain lion.

Ryan Hughes, of Rapid City, said he was ice fishing Saturday at Sheridan Lake, and a lion jumped him as he left the ice and stepped into the woods.

The lion had a fresh kill in its mouth, Hughes said.

Before he could react, Hughes said the big cat jumped on top of him, knocking him on his back.

Hughes said he put his hands in front of his face and started kicking wildly.

The lion retreated, but it left the man with deep gashes on his arm, and scratches and punctures on his face.

Hughes said he reported the attack to the Game, Fish and Parks Department.

I would suggest that nuclear Armageddon is a distant possibility with the interlinking nation-states rising now to challenge Earth’s singular superpower but the more pressing and immediate threat is the planetary alignment of economic catastrophe looming here and concomitantly, abroad. The national debt, enormous government spending, deficit service of the debt, Treasury printing with no adult supervision, regulatory overreach, aggregate tax burdens on all sectors and the looming complex banking crisis all possess precursors that make the Great Depression seem like a subtle economic interruption under RedDR. Y2K may have been an illusion but this a clear and present danger. We are facing an economic abyss from which we cannot shrink or retreat; we are committed to wandering through a valley for which Americans have no contemporary experience nor preparation. The more affluent the nation, the harder the fall and we are heading for a collapse.
