... "Because ATF’s FOIA response was noncompliant with the request as well as its own rules, and because the Grassley reaction to the reply demonstrates we will not know what valuable information can be gleaned (and used to help eke out the truth) until we see what is released, an appeal was filed yesterday (see sidebar slide show)." ...

"The Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (ICHV) and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence (Brady Campaign) brought together state legislators, gun violence victims and law enforcement at the Thompson Center today to send an urgent plea to state lawmakers to oppose HB 148, a dangerous bill that would potentially allow mentally ill individuals to carry guns in public places. Coinciding with the anniversaries of the Virginia Tech and Columbine massacres, the press event shared the results of a legislative hearing last week where the Illinois State Police (ISP) revealed shocking gaps in checking mental health records before issuing gun permits. This growing hole in the safety net was referred to as a 'ticking time bomb' ..." ...
 

OH: Mugging of Plain Dealer employee and subsequent commentary offers lesson in mindset
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

... "There is little doubt doubt, given the history of The Plain Dealer's editorial animosity toward the practice of concealed carry, that employees are not allowed to exercise their right to bear arms for self-defense while at work, and it is equally likely that they are also prohibited from leaving a firearm in their motor vehicle while at work. As pro-self-defense rights advocates have long noted, policies like these result in employees being disallowed their right to bear arms for self-defense while traveling to and from work."

But this isn't just another commentary about another violent crime in a gun free zone. It is, rather, a case study on the victim mindset that far too many Ohioans continue to labor under." ...

... "Rep. Issa's subpoena is a legally binding document. In refusing to comply with it, the BATFE and Department of Justice (and, by extension, the Obama administration as a whole) are violating the law. The Department of Justice is breaking the law. That's a problem. There cannot be justice in a nation where the appointed guardians of that jewel place themselves above it. As Thomas Jefferson said, 'Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry.'" ...
