In one of those rare post-9/11 judicial decisions, a federal court on March 9 sided with the rights of the individual rather than the restrictive nature of government. The Second Amendment right of individual Americans to keep and bear firearms has been upheld by the U.S. District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals.

Many gun owners reacted to the ruling with both surprise and satisfaction. But the supervisor said the verdict also made him and colleagues at the range think about what would happen if they ever drew their weapons on a real person, not just a paper target.

"Anybody who's going to carry a gun is going to think, 'What happens if I have to shoot this thing to save my life? What's going to happen to me afterward?' It really is a device that could save your life. But the other side is, you could take someone else's life."

HELENA - Lawmakers took shots at each other Saturday over a proposed gun-rights bill, the day after it was tabled by a committee Democrats control.

"I'm disappointed," Rep. Jack Wells, R-Bozeman, said in an interview. "The Democrats ... apparently don't support gun rights."

NEW YORK (AP) _ Jurors acquitted a police lieutenant of manslaughter after he testified that he shot his unarmed tenant in self-defense.

Prosecutors said Walton acted recklessly in the deadly shooting of his tenant, Byron Hearst, in May 2005. They said Walton, who was off-duty, overreacted to a scuffle over back rent.

"Herein will be found historical data in reference to the Keeping and Bearing of Arms. Much of this information was also used by the men whom framed the United States Constitution. This is readily discernable by reading the Debates in the Federal Convention on the Constitution and Bill of Rights..."

"..."If therefore, you want to make a people numerous and armed in order to create a great Empire, you will make it of a kind that you are not able afterward to manage it in your own way: if you keep them either small or disarmed in order to be able to manage them, (and), if you acquire other dominion, you will not be able to hold them, or you will become so mean that you will become prey to whoever assaults you." ..."

Imagine with me that you opened your newspaper today and found the following story:

"NORCO, Calif. (AP) -- More than 1 million sheets of paper, a cache of unregistered books and a tunnel were found at a man's home after a fire that forced a neighborhood evacuation, authorities said Friday....."
Now the real story as it actually appeared in the newpaper:
"NORCO, Calif. (AP) -- "More than 1 million rounds of ammunition, a cache of weapons and a tunnel were found at a man's home after an explosive fire that forced a neighborhood evacuation, authorities said Friday...."
Irony at its finest.

How many guns do you need?

I suppose that we've all seen articles from both sides of the issue, from both die-hard RKBA supporters and from the most fervent of the sheeple, bleating that guns are evil. I have to admit that I tend to lean far toward the RKBA side of the issue, but I thought I'd just throw my two cents into the debate.

How many guns do you need? Well, that's a very personal question, don't you think? And there is no definitive answer to it, either. I live out in the boonies. My needs are far different than those of someone who lives in a big city or those of someone who lives in a town at all, for that matter.

Two weeks ago, an appeals court panel struck down portions of Washington's ultra-strict gun-control law, which prohibited almost all D.C. residents from owning guns. The decision, penned by famously conservative Judge Laurence Silberman, met with ire from predictable quarters. The New York Times accused the panel of storming "blithely past a longstanding Supreme Court precedent, the language of the Constitution and the pressing needs of public safety." Meanwhile, my former colleagues at The Washington Post--where I used to write editorials--predicted that "this radical ruling will inevitably mean more people killed and wounded as keeping guns out of the city becomes harder."

A New Rochelle man went on trial yesterday, accused of trying to kill a man who was feuding with his father by driving up to him and shooting him two times. But the lawyer for defendant Anthony Caldwell Jr. said the shooting of Dino Washington was self-defense after a gun-toting Washington walked up to Caldwell's car. "Dino Washington had confronted him with a weapon and Mr. Caldwell twisted the gun away from his face and it goes off twice," the lawyer, Barry Warhit, said in opening statements. Washington will not be able to challenge that account. He died in December from liver disease unrelated to the shooting. Caldwell is charged with second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault.

Considering how badly things have been going for conservatives, right-wingers, Republicans and anyone else whose brain doesn't explode like one of those guys from the movie "Scanners" at the thought of another Republican president, it's worth noting that one of the greatest conservative victories of the last 40 years is quietly unfolding right in front of us. On March 9, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued an epochal ruling. The court found that the Second Amendment actually protects the right to bear arms for individuals.

Panicked students ducked for cover Wednesday as gunfire erupted outside a Bedford-Stuyvesant school - the same one where shootings prompted the principal to cancel outdoor recess last year.

Last year, Anderson cancelled recess and demanded the city improve security around the school. The city complied - even though Mayor Bloomberg accused the principal of overreacting.

A patrolman who was shot during a routine pot bust smiled broadly and waved as applause and shouts of "Go, Rory!" erupted yesterday from a crowd of cops gathered to cheer his release from a Brooklyn hospital.

Mayor Bloomberg was quick to remind the city that the scene could have been quite different.

The mayor said that Mangra, 27, a former Marine and Iraq war vet, was "very lucky."

Acres and acres of guns are coming to St. Louis in mid-April. And they'll be joined by thousands and thousands of sportsmen and enthusiasts gathering for the National Rifle Association's annual convention. Enough thousands, in fact, that the city could be hosting its largest gathering ever — excluding sporting events or papal visits — based on pure attendance. The NRA needs to top 52,700 to one-up the horde of Seventh-Day Adventists who massed here in the summer of 2005.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. — Winston Churchill
