US Supreme Court rejects International gun laws affecting US citizens rights
Submitted by: Chicagofarmer

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"People convicted of crimes overseas still can own guns in the United States, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday."

"In a 5-3 decision, the court ruled in favor of Gary Sherwood Small of Pennsylvania. The court reasoned that U.S. law, which prohibits felons who have been convicted in 'any court' from owning guns, applies only to domestic crimes."

"Justice Stephen G. Breyer, writing for the majority, said interpreting the law broadly to apply to foreign convictions would be unfair to defendants because procedural protections are often less applied in international courts. If Congress intended foreign convictions to apply, they can rewrite the law to say so specifically, he wrote."

"Standing 5-feet-tall, 55-year-old alumna Sandra Froman, an attorney from Tucson, would probably be the last person mistaken for a gun enthusiast. But behind her mild-mannered facade lies the soul of an experienced hunter — not to mention the new president of the National Rifle Association. Appointed at the association’s annual convention last weekend, she is the second woman to ever hold this post."

"But Froman, Class of 1971, was not always a gun lover. In fact, she grew up in San Francisco in a firearm-free environment."
 

Conservative Southern Dems Vanish

"In consecutive days last month, Alabama lost two legends from a disappearing movement — Southern Democrats who were powerful in Washington because of their party's majority and powerful back home because of their tendency to buck it."

"Look around Congress these days and you'll find few conservative Democrats in the mold of the late Sen. Howell Heflin or Rep. Tom Bevill. Those who remain are almost as likely to represent the Midwest or Great Plains as the once-solid South."

(And here's why:) "Unlike in the past, when seniority alone dictated leadership positions for the party, Black says parties now handpick their committee leaders. For Democrats, he said, that means the rewards tend to go more often to liberals."

"It is either a Wild West revival, a return to the days of 'shoot first and ask questions later,' or a triumph for the 'Castle Doctrine' -- the notion that enemies invade personal space at their peril."

"Such dueling rhetoric marked the debate over a measure that Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) could sign as early as Tuesday. The legislation passed so emphatically that National Rifle Association backers plan to take it to statehouses across the nation, including Virginia's, over the next year. The law will let Floridians 'meet force with force,' erasing the 'duty to retreat' when they fear for their lives outside of their homes, in their cars or businesses, or on the street."

"Lest I be dismissed as a gun-hating liberal, I note here that I received my first firearm — a shotgun — at the age of 10 from Santa Claus. That pretty much cemented my stance on gun control. I’ve been on Santa’s side ever since."

"But on this bill, I disagree with the National Handgun and Assault Weapon Association (NRA). This group used to be the National Rifle Association until the lunatic fringe took over one day when the rest of us were out birdhunting. The NRA appears to have been the driving force behind this bill, pointing out the many wholesome aspects of allowing people to bring guns into bars."
