“Three month’s ago, somebody was killed across the street and for safety, the area is not the greatest,” said Hidnert. “The other attorney’s recommended we have guns with us.”

In October of 2005, Florida's 'stand-your-ground-law' went into effect. It says Floridians like Scott Hidnert who feel threatened can shoot first in self-defense.

THE Commission on Elections has exempted the members of the municipal, city, district and provincial boards of canvassers in the May 14 elections from the coverage of the election firearms ban.

In a resolution promulgated Feb. 22, the Comelec allowed the board of canvassers automatic exemption from the gun ban to ensure their safety.

But the exemption would cover only the period from the start of the canvassing and until the proclamation of the winning candidates.

Listen up, ladies and gentlemen. The Word of the Day is "zumbo." It can be either a verb or a noun.

As a verb, "to zumbo" means to annihilate the reputation of anyone who suggests that there is any class of firearm that doesn't directly contribute to the preservation of American liberty. As a noun, a zumbo is someone who commits professional suicide by saying something that angers the "pry my gun from my cold dead fingers" Second Amendment shock troops.

I sit quietly, with a clarity that is startlingly similar to what I experience after orgasm. Endorphins from fight or flight pool in my brain, leaving my body satisfied and my mind open. The primitive part of myself is wired to eat or to be eaten. It empowers me. My shadow looms large, but I do not turn away from what I have discovered about myself:

I could fire a gun. I would fire a gun. Knowing this fortifies my choice to never own a gun. The more difficult challenge now will be befriending this shadow, this self-knowledge.

Ed.: Wow. Just wow. I am so very glad that the author wasn't my mother. Seems to me this meets the legal definition of negligence.

Jonathan Turley wrote about how his family won first place in the neighborhood Labor Day parade for the realistic Conestoga wagon they replicated, all the way down to the hand-sewn canvas and plastic toy rifles inside. But "as soon as one mother spotted the toy rifles inside the wagon, she pulled her screaming children out of the event, announcing that she would not 'expose them' to guns."

In Search of the Second Amendment

The historical evidence is conclusive. The Second Amendment was intended to express an individual right, and any alternate "collective rights" theories are modern fictions developed by those with an agenda to control guns. In the words of Sanford Levinson from the University of Texas, this "view was virtually unknown before the 1960s."
 

MI: Hunters and what hunting should really be

I try not to make it a point to tell people they're keeping the wrong company (especially considering the kind of company I've kept from time to time), but I wonder whether it's time for Michigan's sportsmen to divorce themselves from the National Rifle Association.

The question for hunters is whether they recognize that the NRA itself is too rigid and inflexible. The evidence for this is in their ironfisted advocacy for hunting prairie dogs with civilian models of military rifles. Once this kind of thing hits the mainstream, regular people are more likely to see people who endorse this kind of thing as bullet-addled yahoos getting their rocks off blasting rodents with high-powered weapons.

A man was spared a jail sentence for taking the gun Theodore Roosevelt used in the Spanish-American War's most famous battle. Anthony Joseph Tulino was sentenced Friday to two years probation, 50 hours of community service and a $500 fine. A federal judge noted that Tulino had changed since the 1892 revolver was removed from a Long Island museum in 1990. "I offer my apology for my action a long time ago," Tulino, 55, a former New York resident who now lives in DeLand, Fla., said in court Friday. "I make no excuse."
 

IN: Anti-gun legislation again attacks law-abiding citizens

The proposed gun legislation of House Bill 1090, introduced by Rep. David Orentlicher was another in the long line of attacks on law-abiding citizens and nothing more. While all dealers are required to do background checks at gun shows, or at their stores, this legislation targeted only a small percentage of private citizen sales. In no way would this have had an effect on habitual criminals acquiring a firearm illegally. Laws already on the books need to be enforced more stringently by our judges and prosecutors, to put and keep many of these same criminals behind bars, instead of being able to plea bargain their way back on the streets.

The intruder kicked in the homeowner's back door and pointed a gun at him, police said. When the door flew open, the intruder hit the older man in the head and knocked him down. He got up and wrestled with the intruder over the gun, police said, and the homeowner then pulled his own pistol and shot the intruder in the chest.

The city manager here is recommending that city officials let die a controversial ordinance proposal that adds to the list of city-owned sites where concealed guns may not be carried. Instead, Jeff Pederson's new plan calls on city commissioners to draw up a list of places where they'd like to prohibit concealed guns. Signs would then be posted at the locales announcing as much, with the backing only of the state concealed-carry law, not a city ordinance, said Nannette Pogue, the city finance director.

The only illegal items investigators have identified so far are five assault rifles, several high-capacity magazines and the 60 pounds of gunpowder, they said. It is illegal to possess more than one pound of gunpowder, Gutierrez said.

Local big-game hunters may be able to use rifles instead of shotguns to hunt deer and bear if a state law is amended. The issue will be discussed at 10 a.m. Tuesday when the Steuben County Legislature's Agriculture, Industry and Planning Committee meets.
