"Anti-gun Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has taken one more step toward turning his city into a police state by planning to give police fully automatic M4 carbines, while still fighting to block the gun rights of citizens not only in Chicago but throughout Illinois, the [CCRKBA] said today."

"'Here's one of the most anti-gun mayors in the nation, who has been trying to ban common semiautomatic rifles for years, but now he's rushing to turn his police into a paramilitary force doing battle against street gangs and other criminals,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb ... 'Yet this guy works overtime to make it impossible for average citizens to protect themselves against the same criminal element.'" ...

"The gun industry should set its sights on a different target: certification."

"It should develop and adopt a private licensing and certification program fashioned on the highly successful scuba diving industry model to provide safety, legal, and marksmanship training to all gun owners and users."
"S'cuse me?"

"We have it. From many sources."

"No diver may fill their tanks or take part in recreational or professional diving trips without first obtaining a certification card from one of these private organizations."
"Oh, I see." ...

"Gun ban extremists and others who oppose the right of self defense are fond of saying that when a person is in danger, the best thing to do is to call 911 and let the police take care of it."

"But what happens when you dial 911 and the police tell you to wait...and wait...and wait?"

"One Columbus-area business owner was wise enough to have made his own plans for that very eventuality..."

"On Thursday, April 17, a drive-thru carryout owner and Concealed Handgun License (CHL)-holder was investigating why his security alarm went off after just having closed up for the night when he was surprised by an intruder who had been hiding in his store. The entire confrontation that followed was caught on tape." ...

... "Universities across the country have begun to consider changes to minimize the risks of these kind of incidents from happening on their grounds, such as more advanced and faster warning systems to alert students to the danger or training police and security forces to handle the situation more effectively."

"One suggestion I've heard mentioned quite a bit lately has me worried that along with this understandable concern over the danger, many have become unrealistic about what will actually help us be safer at our own schools."

"There is an argument some make that people should be allowed to bring their firearms with them to campus ..." ...

"Hillary Clinton won a major endorsement yesterday when North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley endorsed her just a week before that state's critical primary. ... She now hopes to parlay Gov. Easley's backing into a better-than-expected showing in the Tarheel State next Tuesday."

"Mr. Easley, who has won two terms as governor, is retiring this year. 'It's an incredibly strong endorsement because Easley is popular among the blue collar 'Bubba' voters who are Democrats,' David 'Mudcat' Saunders, a Democratic consultant, told Politico.com. 'He's clean in the culture.... He's a hunter. He's a strong Second Amendment guy. He gives her great cultural validation in the state of North Carolina.'" ...

"The constitution is about protecting the rights of individual people. But some of Florida's corporate giants are trying to hijack our constitution and circumvent the Legislature and Gov. Crist."

"The Florida Constitution protects the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Florida Statute 790.25 (5) authorizes the carrying of firearms in private vehicles for lawful purposes. Nowhere does the constitution or law say, 'except in a parking lot.' Yet the Florida Chamber of Commerce and Florida Retail Federation are leading a lawsuit to ban the right of self-defense in public-access parking lots." ...

"As we all know, the quintessential 'American dream' is that of homeownership. ... Of course, a large part of maintaining this dream is being able to defend our homes against those who would destroy our property or harm our families."

"Accordingly, the Senate recently passed legislation that reaffirms Ohioans' Second Amendment right to bear arms and solidifies our entitlement to protecting our homes and families, even if it means using violent force. Senate Bill 184, appropriately dubbed the 'Castle Doctrine,' makes common sense revisions to the state's self-defense laws as they apply to Ohioans' homes. ..." ...

"Next time you are in NYC and you have a camera, be careful around the cops."

"This video shows several arrests and aggressive behavior towards people in bicycles and photographers. ... Pay attention to the government's claim that the people in question were interfering with police business or blocking official procedures. This is, for lack of a better word, hysterical, as the opposite appears to be the case --people are minding their own business and the police are the troublemakers." ...

"The availability of cameras and internet access is making this kind of exposé more common. When you have dozens --perhaps hundreds-- of people recording events, it becomes more burdensome for the government to attempt to hide the truth or shift the blame." ...

"When you call 911, you expect help immediately. Lisa, a Memphis resident, got anything but." ...

"Action News 5 obtained a copy of the call through an open records request. It begins as Lisa calls 911 and a Memphis operator comes on the line. Lisa tells the operator she was robbed at gunpoint earlier in the evening, and that she now hears someone trying to break into our home."

"The video ... shows Sgt. Charles L. Jones kicking Ricoh, a 7-year-old Belgian Malinois, five times, causing the dog to swing as much as two feet under the loading dock."

"Jones, a 14-year patrol member, was fired last September after the incident became public. Now he is trying to win back his job ..." ...
