IN: Target criminals, not the guns

In the right hands, a rifle or a gun can be a fun thing to own and use. In the wrong hands, it is a major problem.

But do we not already have laws on the books that say a person who is, for example, a convicted felon cannot have any type of firearm? Let's start enforcing that law before we go and restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens.

UK: We must vet screen violence ... but people's mental health is more important than The Rovers

A HORRIFYING murder has re-ignited the debate over how on-screen violence might trigger real-life crime.
Yesterday we told of the case of schoolboy Daniel Bartlam, 14, who beat his mum Jacqueline, 47, to death with a hammer, then set her alight. ...
Here top criminologist Professor David Wilson, from Birmingham City University, examines the issue.
THE horrific murder of Jacqueline by her son has again raised the issue of whether watching violence on TV, DVDs, film or computer games, makes that viewer more likely to commit violence for real.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: You don't need a gun to commit a "horrific murder."

Bill Cosby's opinion on guns in Trayvon Martin case shows hypocrisy of elites

"Then there are the reports that Cosby himself had obtained one of New York City’s rare, reserved for the rich, famous, powerful and connected concealed gun permits, joining other celebrities like Robert DeNiro, Howard Stern and Donald Trump. Assuming the accounts in the New York Observer and Boston Globe were accurate, has he since renounced the personal practice? And when he did carry a gun, did he 'mean to harm somebody, kill somebody'?"

New York City has a gun problem. So says its mayor. Just last weekend, NYPD officers in the downtown Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook stopped two men for questioning and were met with gun fire. By sheer dumb luck, neither of the officers was hurt. One of their assailants was shot, however, and later apprehended in Far Rockaway, Queens.

A slew of questions have been raised in this investigation and calls for justice have been heard from all corners of our country. What's important is that we the citizens have the proper information to draw a conclusion about what actually happened that night. Everything else is pure speculation. I will attempt to do just that here with you, step by step.

During his recent visit to the White House, Mexico President Felipe Calderon renewed his call for a U.S. assault weapons ban as a solution to the drug cartel-caused violence that plagues his country. He also claimed, according to columnist Bill Press, that violence levels are directly related to the number of guns in circulation. Both of these assertions are demonstrably false.

Vidor police are working to answer whether a man was justified when he shot his former stepfather.

Police say 62-year-old Rodger Allen's former stepson, who has been identified by those who know the men as Kelly Mitchell, shot Allen after Allen intentionally rammed Mitchell's truck head on.

An Orange County Grand Jury will make the final decision on an indictment, but police say they believe the former stepson was acting in self-defense when he shot and killed his mother's ex-husband.

The man who claims he killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense is soliciting PayPal donations on a website he created to pay his legal bills, NBC reports.

George Zimmerman created the site -- therealgeorgezimmerman.com -- on Sunday and is running it, his lawyers confirmed. Other money-raising sites have emerged since Zimmerman killed Trayvon in Sanford on Feb. 26, but he said he "cannot attest to the validity" of them.

A young man died Monday afternoon after a woman says she shot him in self-defense after he put a gun to her head and locked her in a closet.

Police say two young men, in their teens knocked on the woman’s door and asked to see a man. When the woman at the house in the 5800 block of Garfield told the men he wasn’t there, police say the men forced their way in, pointed a gun at the woman’s head, and put her in a closet.

While they rummaged through her house, the woman, who is in her 20s says she found the gun that she hides in the closet. She stepped out of the closet and shot one of the men. He stumbled out of the house, into the yard, and collapsed in the front yard, where a neighbor found him.
 

NJ: Who Needs The Second Amendment?

The most shocking thing about the Second Amendment is that it is truly unnecessary!

The question every human must ask themselves is “Who owns my LIFE”?

The answer can only be one of two possibilities. Either *YOU* are the owner of your life or someone else is. If you declare that your life belongs to someone else, then they can do with you whatever they wish. You need not worry about the right to keep and bear arms. Your life is not yours to defend.

In essence the answer to this question is a choice between FREEDOM and SLAVERY.
 

WA: What triggered an increase in concealed pistol licenses?

On average, Washington's Department of Licensing sees anywhere from five to eight thousand concealed pistol licenses replaced, renewed, or requested for the first time. In March, it saw 12,000 licenses -- a number they haven't seen in years.

In Washington , you don't need a permit to have a loaded gun in your home. However, if you carry it outside of the home concealed, or in your car, you need a concealed pistol license.

Gun rights advocate Dave Workman says the number of gun owners in Washington who have concealed pistol licenses is 358,335. The DOL says it can't remember the last time the number was that high. Workman believes there are several reasons.

Today’s announcement, carried on the websites of both the Seattle Times and on-line Seattle P-I.com, may fan the flames for people who want to turn that case strictly into a race issue. A few people leaving comments on the Times’ website are calling attention to the continued use of the “undated” Martin photo that presents the face of a smiling 12-year-old, as if to convince readers that Zimmerman gunned down a child.
 

MA: City Councilors debate legality of self-defense bill in Bay State

Boston City Council voted unanimously last week to urge the Massachusetts General Court to reject a Florida-style “Stand Your Ground” bill for Massachusetts.

In their petition to the council, City Councilors Tito Jackson and Felix Arroyo argued that the bill “An Act Relative to the Common Defense” would be unnecessary in Massachusetts, where state law already protects the use of deadly force as a last resort in self-defense situations.

The bill, proposed by state Sen. Stephen Brewer, calls for the state to refrain from arresting or prosecuting any person who uses deadly force out of the belief that an assailant “was about to inflict great bodily injury or death.”

The state Senate embraced legislation Monday that would ask voters in November to strengthen gun rights in Louisiana.

With little debate, the Senate voted 31-6 in favor of Senate Bill 303 by state Sen. Neil Riser, R-Columbia.

“We would have the strongest Second Amendment law in the nation if we pass this,” Riser said. The Second Amendments refers to the U.S. constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

The legislation would force the state to prove a “compelling interest” rather than a “rational basis” for laws that restrict firearms at schools, churches and on college campuses. The proposal is backed by the National Rifle Association.
 

NC: "Justified" Homicides Increase in 2012 in Spartanburg County

There have been at least four "justified" homicides in Spartanburg County in 2012, proof that citizens are taking to heart the sheriff's comments to responsibly arm and protect themselves.

Of the six people killed with guns or knives in the county since January 1, 2012, Sheriff Chuck Wright says four of them were killed in self-defense.

"However, it's always a tragedy, whether it's justified or unjustified, to lose humans," the sheriff said Monday.

Over the weekend, a man at Lee's Crossing Apartments shot two would-be burglars, and the sheriff says the man was within the law to protect himself and his property.
 

Why the Washington Post is wrong about Stand Your Ground laws

The Washington Post has made clear its opposition to — and persistent misunderstanding of — the set of self-defense laws known as Stand Your Ground. Its March 29 editorial was headlined “A rise in homicides after ‘Stand Your Ground,’” even though homicides per capita in Florida have dropped, not risen, since that state enacted its law. The editorial claimed that the law “immunizes an individual from criminal charges if he asserts he had a ‘reasonable’ fear of grave harm.” This grossly misstates the law: individuals may assert anything they please, but it is up to legal finders of fact, such as a judge or jury, to ascertain whether a claimed fear was in fact reasonable.
 

FL: Trayvon Martin: Lawyers mount vigorous defense for George Zimmerman in media

The lawyers for George Zimmerman have complained that their client has been tried in the media.

Yet they have fought back by defending him very energetically in the media. They visited CNN, Fox News Channel and “CBS This Morning” last week. This morning they stopped by NBC’s “Today,” the showed that last week fired a producer for editing a Zimmerman call to police.

Along the way, Zimmerman’s lawyers Hal Uhrig and Craig Sonner have sharpened their argument that Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old, in self-defense. On CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” their interview was contentious. But their chats on the morning shows have been shorter, simpler and more to the point.

If those school kids and teachers were carrying loaded pistols they would have killed the crazy gunman, with his legal automatic weapon, before he had a chance to kill more than a couple of victims. And they all would have taken courses in how to use guns so they would not have killed each other by accident. Those accidents would be called collateral damage by the NRA.

If a proposal at the Missouri Capitol gains traction, St. Louis public transportation riders could be allowed to bring guns with them.

State lawmakers are reviewing legislation that would block cities such as St. Louis and Kansas City from using local restrictions to ban concealed handguns on city buses and trains.

The House General Laws Committee did not vote on the bill after a hearing last week, but the committee is scheduled to meet today and could take up the legislation.

A tough battle for Indiana's Republican Senate nomination got uglier Monday as the National Rifle Association began airing television ads blasting incumbent Sen. Richard Lugar for failing to uphold gun ownership rights.

The group has endorsed Lugar's challenger, Indiana state treasurer Richard Mourdock, ahead of the May 8 GOP senate primary. The race against Mourdock has seen Lugar, a six-term veteran of the U.S. Senate, challenged by tea party groups and others who proclaim him to be too moderate.

“How should we respond to Progress Iowa?” Watts asked from the floor. “I say, Nuts to you! Your intimidation tactics may work on some legislators and even some high-level executive offices, but it doesn’t get traction with this legislator.”
 

Attacks on gun rights intensify

Gun rights activists say that the move by the ATF is an attempt by the Obama Administration to conduct de facto registration of gun owners by confiscating in totality the records of gun stores. All government agencies are prohibited by law from gaining such broad based access to gun records, according to the provisions of the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986.

A government agency must have a specific reason that meets the requirements of the law, and the records it requests must be targeted and limited to that specific need. It is illegal for a government agency to demand and confiscate all of the records kept on gun owners.
