"An armed student at Jerusalem's Mercaz Haray seminary played a crucial role in stopping a gun-wielding terrorist Thursday, but the American press is downplaying his heroism because it proves that armed students can stop campus gunmen, the [CCRKBA] said today."

"Yitzhak Dadon, 40, was described as 'a private citizen who had a gun license and was able to shoot the gunman with his pistol' by reporter Etgar Lefkovitz with the Jerusalem Post. However, many news agencies in the United States are downplaying Dadon's decisive role in the incident."

"'Yitzhak Dadon is a hero,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, 'and he is living proof that armed students have a place on college campuses. ...'" ...

"A gun rights organization in the United States is accusing the media of trying to conceal the fact that a gunman who attacked students at Jerusalem's Mercaz Harav seminary was stopped by an armed student at the school."

"Authorities report that Ytizhak Dadon, 40, was a 'private citizen who had a gun license and was able to shoot the gunman with his pistol,' according to a statement released today by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms."

"Back when I started this blog ... my inspiration was what I saw as a need to counter the lies and distortions of the citizen disarmament advocates. Specifically, the festering effluvia of a website that calls itself the 'Gun Guys.' ... Eventually, though, I decided that the ludicrousness of their 'arguments' was so obvious that by going to the trouble to debunk it, I was actually giving it more credence than merited."

"Something they put up yesterday, however, has provoked me into breaking my own self-imposed rule of not referring to them ... I refer to their post yesterday that manages to, within a few paragraphs, condemn both the SwissMiniGun and .50 caliber rifles." ...

... "In another study, the eggheads set off to observe what would happen if you let a roomful of boys find a gun. Predictably, when the lads could get their hands on one, they typically did, with many pulling the trigger, including some who admitted receiving previous instructions not to."

"Having a vested interest in the results can itself lead to an unethical abandonment of the scientific method. But the biggest problem with their 'random' sample: None of the boys were active shooters. Aside from a bit of 'don't touch that' counseling, there’s no indication any of them were trained in proper firearms use ... Yet the fact that this, rather than ignorance, might prove the safest course was not even considered." ...

The March 1958 issue of GUNS Magazine is now online. Even then they were at the forefront of informing their readers about regulatory threats to RKBA.

Also in this issue is a warm memorial tribute to the great Ed McGivern, a look at what Eli Whitney gave us besides the cotton gin, articles of interest to collectors, hunters and shooters, and of course, the classic period ads that are both fascinating and frustrating to look at--just remember--back then, a dollar was actually still worth about a dollar.

"Several of the amicus briefs filed in support of Washington DC's handgun ban in the Heller case rely on historical arguments and documents. There is one major historical flaw in all of these briefs. It is their tendency to set aside the Bill of Rights development, nature, and context of the Second Amendment. All of the historical briefs supporting something other than a private rights protecting purpose for the Second Amendment fall into this category ... Yet, no two of these briefs are exactly alike. Each one stresses some slightly different approach in its presentation diverting away from the most relevant historical actors, statements, and occurrences for understanding the Second Amendment for what it actually is - a Bill of Rights provision." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

David Young wrote me last night to let me know he has put together some critical historical commentary regarding the DC v Heller case to be argued on March 18 before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mr. Young notes that what all the anti-DC briefs seem to share is one thing: a general setting aside of the Bill of Rights development, and the nature, background and intent of the Second Amendment. Plus, he is stymied why a group of 15 so-called "historians" included so many errors of fact in their pro-DC brief.

Read his commentary here. Read it. Read it. Read it.

"Dozens of organizations have weighed in on both sides of District of Columbia. v. Heller, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case that will consider whether the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to bear arms."

"Not surprisingly, the case has drawn a great number and variety of voices. The amicus, or friend-of-court, briefs have exposed some odd bedfellows, along with internal divisions among government branches. Some former U.S. Justice Department officials—including Republican Attorneys General Edwin Meese and William Barr—support Heller, while another group of former Justice Department officials—among them Clinton-era Attorney General Janet Reno—comes down on the side of the District." ...

"Professor Laurence Tribe has published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that has some folks scratching their heads bloody. In this piece, Tribe interjects his opinion on the D.C. v. Heller case about to be argued in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. Typical of his genus (liberis thinkeumsupremis), Tribe's piece is a splendid example of intellectual obfuscation."

"By way of background, Tribe was sought out by both sides in this case, given his stature in the field of Constitutional law. Any brief over his signature is bound to be read closely. Having declined to be involved directly on either side as an author, he is now attempting to preserve his relevance to the debate, and steer the court, through this op-ed." ...
