FL: Businesses may not usurp constitutional rights

What Allen is saying is that, if you are attacked by a rapist or your husband is assaulted in an unsecured parking lot owned by big business, your ability to defend your life or the lives of your loved ones is not important to big business.

He is saying that businesses believe their ability to control your private property rights — what you have locked inside your personal private vehicle in a public access parking lot — is superseded by their desire for power and control over the lives of their employees and customers. That is wrong.

SB 1130 and HB 503 are reasonable bills that preserve self-defense rights and the integrity of Florida's Right-to-Carry laws while respecting private property rights.
 

PA: Guns are not the problem

The head of the West Chester chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC) wants to see the University code for on-campus gun restriction lifted. Sixteen thousand students nationwide, all members of SCCC, support the same cause. This is one popular solution to the killer-on-campus problem that has breached the security guarantee of a few colleges in the past year. The gun supporters argue that if the college cannot ensure the students' security in the classroom, then the students should be given the opportunity to protect themselves.
 

DC: High court considering gun ban

Reasonable restrictions on firearms possession and use, such as those that ban convicted felons from possessing guns, are acceptable to most Americans. But a comprehensive ban is not.

Our nation’s founders felt that way, strongly enough to codify their ideas about guns in the Second Amendment. They believed, in essence, that law-abiding Americans ought to be allowed to keep and bear arms. We hope the high court reaffirms that in the D.C. case.
 

OK: Oklahoma's 'Stand Your Ground' law faces legal test

Oklahoma law provides that one does not have to "run as a craven coward,” according to the brief, and the statute allows those under attack to "meet force with force” if in fear of great bodily harm.

The state law is also unique, the attorneys wrote, in that a person who uses such force is immune from criminal prosecution. The immunity applies to a person in a home, a vehicle or where an individual "has a lawful right to be.”

Ed.: On its face, this seems like just the overzealous prosecution that these laws are designed to stop.

The Declaration of Independence is also a declaration of war — it is forever a declaration of war against every form of tyranny over the mind of man, including Fascism, Communism and Islamic Totalitarianism.

One bill in the Oklahoma Legislature might completely change the way Oklahomans define university campus security.

House Bill 2513, authored in part by Jason Murphey, R-Edmond, would allow 21-year-old and older students of any public university in Oklahoma to carry a concealed weapon, provided they have a valid Carry and Conceal Weapon permit.

ELIZABETH, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- All charges have been dropped against a Wirt County Middle School principal accused of bringing guns onto school grounds.

Defense attorney George Cosenza says they filed a motion to dismiss the charges based on a specific statute. He says in this case the firearms were in the trunk of Hoover's car and the ammunition was in the glove box.

Judge Robert Waters then dismissed the gun charges against Hoover Monday in Wirt County court.

Wirt County superintendent Daniel Metz says Hoover remains under suspension.

Gov. Mark Sanford has not yet decided what he'll do with a bill awaiting his signature that lowers South Carolina's minimum age to buy and sell guns from 21 to 18, spokesman Joel Sawyer said Friday.
South Carolina is one of 18 states - and the only one in the South - that has set 21 as the age for handgun ownership, according to the National Rifle Association. Wyoming has no handgun age requirement; in Montana, it's set at 14; in Vermont, 16, according to the NRA.

There have been too many shootings in the news the past couple of weeks. With the terrible events that unfolded at Virginia Tech one year ago April 16 and the shooting at Northern Illinois University, to the local death of a Palo Verde High School freshman, the wounding of a Western High school student and an altercation outside of Bonanza High School between two adults, the violence leads us all to wonder what can be done to prevent another tragedy. Do we need to re-evaluate our gun laws and the way guns are sold?
 

Call 911 - get a civilian

Facing tighter budgets, law enforcement agencies around the country are increasingly turning to civilians to respond to some calls that sworn officers and deputies are usually responsible for.

That means people calling 911 to report a traffic accident, a burglarized home or a stolen car may be greeted by a civilian in a polo shirt instead of a gun-toting officer.

Lynne Jantz, director of selection for the Las Vegas police department, said civilians working for the police don't respond to accidents where alcohol or injuries are involved.

Since the unit was created in 2003, Jantz said, no civilian officers have been injured.

"Maybe a paper cut," she said.

Nine Philadelphia-area Republicans signaled last week they would break ranks with their caucus today and support handgun-control legislation when the state House of Representatives resumes debate on a controversial proposal. The measure, which would require reporting handguns that are lost or stolen, has been vigorously pushed by Democrats in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh as a "common sense" restriction that would reduce gun violence.

A number of citizens and public officials expressed outrage over the U.S. Navy's decision to forbid its personnel from accepting commemorative Buck Knives as a "thank you" for serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"It's the stupidest thing I've heard of," said Paul Abschier, a Hayden resident and World War II veteran. "They've put their lives on the line and they can't receive a knife?"

This column is about defensive tactics, and a very important tactic is to not get shot, or shoot someone by accident, because of ignorance--ignorance of how to safely manipulate a firearm. I'm not referring here to your personal arm; the assumption is you are competent with it. I'm referring to having a general knowledge of how the more common firearms operate, to the extent that you can make a gun incapable of firing, if not unload it. You should have a high enough skill level to be able to do so while not endangering yourself or others.

Schenectady Police S.W.A.T. Team members fired tear gas cannisters into the second floor of 225 Frank Street shortly after noon on Monday. Detectives suspect that the two men they dragged out of the building know something about the gunfire that erupted on the street earlier in the morning. "I heard one or two shots and then they kept shooting six or eight times," says Larry Jones who lives down the street from Monday's raid. The stand-off ended shortly after law enforcement officials and clergy members announced a new gun amnesty program in Schenectady.
 

DC: Leaders Worry that Supreme Court May Overturn D.C. Gun Ban

Although Supreme Court justices appear to be leaning against upholding D.C.'s ban on handguns, Mayor Adrian Fenty says it's critical that the city maintain its ability to outlaw firearms. "Make no mistake about it, this is a public safety case," Fenty said. "The reason the city council enacted the gun ban in the 1970s because crime was getting out of control and guns were the cause of a disproportionate number of fatalities. When the gun ban became law, violent crime dropped significantly in the city and has steadily gone down since then."

According to a recent National Survey of Hunting, Fishing and Wildlife Associated Recreation done by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, there has been an 11% decline in the number of hunters nationwide from 1991 to 2006.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife survey published in 2007 shows that the number of female hunters, about 10% of the nation's 12.5 million hunters, has grown slightly since 1991, but it showed significant growth among the youngest female hunters.

An Israeli hitchhiker shot dead a knife-wielding Palestinian in the West Bank on Monday afternoon after the man tried to stab him and a companion as they waited for a ride near the settlement of Shiloh.

An investigation into the incident ascertained that the two hitchers spotted a man running toward them, carrying a knife with a 20-cm blade. One of the two hitchhikers pulled out his personal weapon and shot the man.
