WY: Protecting our families and the Second Amendment

When it comes to governing, most of us agree that the less involvement the federal government has the far better off we are. This is especially true on issues concerning local matters, such as education or the right to carry a concealed weapon.

Under current federal law, a citizen with a valid, state-issued concealed weapon permit is unable to bring a concealed weapon into national parks.

This is why earlier this year I cosponsored H.R. 5434, the Protecting Americans from Violent Crime Act of 2008, which would allow law-abiding citizens to take their firearms into national parks and wildlife refuges.

Whatever your position on gun control, the case of Leon Rozio supports it.

If you believe in a liberal interpretation of the Second Amendment, you're right. Mr. Rozio is a wholesale jeweler who carries merchandise worth more than most people have in their 401(k). On May 7, four thugs blocked his car with their car after he had parked at a jeweler's near Town Center mall in Boca Raton. They smashed the windows of his car, grabbed a briefcase containing $100,000 in gems and tried to escape.
 

WI: From 38 years to freedom

Baha "Bob" Hamdallah knows the lows and the highs of justice in America, from being convicted of murder and sentenced to prison for 38 years, to being found innocent in the same case. He fatally shot a customer at his store in Madison in 2000, he said in self-defense.

Just imagine. On Tuesday Hamdallah could have pleaded guilty to a lesser charge that would have resulted in a 20-year prison sentence. Instead he chose to go forward with a second trial, and that gamble paid off. On Thursday a jury found him innocent, and he walked out of the Madison County Courthouse a free man.

It's the contention of one of the readers that I've been avoiding certain questions on the issues of gun control and the Second Amendment. I had thought that I had made my views on the issues clear in some of my commentaries and story entries to the point of repetition in some instances.

Do I think our society need gun control? In the sense of any type of government restriction or banning; no. Our Second Amendment expressly forbids infringement on the people's right to bear arms.
 

'If Obama Wins, You Lose,' says American Self-Defense Advocate in Warning Against Statist Gun Control Agenda

“If Obama wins, you lose,” says gun law expert John M. Snyder.

“America’s 80 million law-abiding, gun-owning voters will face serious threats to their individual Second Amendment civil right to keep and bear arms should Illinois’ junior Senator be elected President,” Snyder continued.

“Although Barack Hussein Obama now professes support for Second Amendment values in an obvious attempt to cynically and hypocritically garner as many votes as he can, his public record shows he is a die-hard opponent of law-abiding Americans’ gun rights,” Snyder added.
 

So, Helmke, what if Jesus owned a gun?

Paul Helmke has answered some unusual questions during his career, but talking about how Jesus Christ would use guns was a new one for Fort Wayne’s former mayor. But the director of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence found himself debating just that subject, along with other equally zany arguments when appearing on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” on Tuesday evening.

Not quite 30 guns have been brought to the Oswego County Sheriff's Office as part of this year's gun amnesty program. The program, begun May 5, runs until Friday, according to Sheriff Reuel Todd and County Clerk George Williams. Under the program, residents can bring unregistered guns to the Sheriff's Office for storage until they go the county clerk's office to get the gun listed on their pistol permit or someone else's pistol permit.
 

KY: McCain receives warm response from NRA for backing its agenda

Sen. John McCain, once derided as one of the “premier flag-carriers for the enemies of the Second Amendment” by the National Rifle Association, enthusiastically embraced the group’s pro-gun agenda at its annual convention here Friday. In front of a crowd of about 6,000 people who gave him two standing ovations, McCain also mocked Democratic Sen. Barack Obama as a liberal, anti-gun politician and made a direct appeal to the “bitter” voters Obama said were clinging to their “guns and religion” to soothe concerns about their economic struggles. “The Second Amendment isn’t some archaic custom that matters only to rural Americans who find solace in firearms out of frustration with their economic circumstances,” McCain said.

Fran Reale, a south Hartford community leader, has lived with fear for weeks because of a recent citywide surge in gun violence, and she says she's glad the city has a plan to address it. "Are we freaking out? Yeah we are," said Reale, a businesswoman and former interim director of the South Hartford Community Alliance. The Alliance includes the Barry Square neighborhood, which has reported about 20 gun-related incidents over the past two months. "After a certain hour, we don't stop for red lights," Reale said Friday. "What are we going to do, wait at the light for them to blow our brains out?"

"We also had a large quantity of ammunition turned in as well," said police spokeswoman Officer Deidre Taccone.
 

PA: gunfight AT THE O.C. BUFFET

While some gunslingers will adamantly disagree, a room in which there are no guns is safer than a room in which even one gun is present, no matter what color hat you’re wearing. This is just as true with other lethal instruments, such as the broadsword, catapult, rocket launcher and French horn.

Open-carry advocates argue that guns increase safety. If some maniac comes in and starts shooting up the buffet, they can return fire, thus upping the body count and increasing the chances of pegging the maniac.

[Excerpt from an article titled "Shooting In Sport", in the Archives of the New York Times]

"...As the Constitutions, generally, say that the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed, it seems to be established that laws cannot be passed to forbid men from carrying fire-arms. But most of the States, probably, have laws declaring that these weapons shall not be carried concealed; whoever wears a pistol must wear it openly, so that his neighbors can see that he goes armed and may take care accordingly...."

"...The courts continue to take the utmost pains to discourage the pernicious practice of brandishing pistols or pointing guns, whether loaded or unloaded..."

Five-year-old Nathan Himes stood with a 9-mm. automatic pistol in each hand. "Did you see this one?" asked his father, Anthony Himes. The father pointed to another of the big automatics at the Taurus display at the annual NRA meeting here. Nathan glanced at it, but moved on to the smaller handguns. He picked up a pair of automatics with pink grips, but immediately set them down. "He doesn't like the girl guns," his father said.

Americans today are drowning in an ocean of lies. Virtually everything they think they know -- about history, about economics, about the Constitution and the law, about a hundred other things -- is wrong.

The shameful truth about the National Rifle Association, for example, is that there seems to be some kind of mutually beneficial -- symbiotic -- relationship between that group, which would like you to believe it was created to protect the Second Amendment right of the people to keep and bear arms, and the agency that enforces federal gun laws, the notorious Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Sherman is the founding member of New York’s chapter of Shooting Liberally, one of three chapters nationally that encourage liberals to enjoy gun play without shame. [snip] Which brings up an interesting issue - all of our Shooting Liberals are no slouches to the second word in the name. These are real lefties, and that includes believing in sensible gun control as well as responsible gun ownership. . .

Inside a Manhattan basement shooting range, Stanley Sherman raises a .22-caliber rifle to his bearded cheek and fires off 10 quick shots at a paper target, the tinkle of brass shell casings punctuating each round. Retrieving the target, the Manhattan resident turns, grinning, and holds it up to the small crowd behind a soundproof window: 10 small holes inside the bull's-eye. Sherman is the founding member of New York's chapter of Shooting Liberally, one of three chapters nationally that encourage liberals to enjoy gun play without shame.

Ed.: :-) I love this line:
Most of them had heard about Shooting Liberally while they were Drinking Liberally, ... organized by the national Living Liberally network founded in New York City in 2003...
 

US gun lobby weighs in on White House race

The powerful US gun lobby has painted the 2008 presidential race as a showdown over the right to bear arms, but the election could also prove to be a key test of its political firepower. At its annual meeting in Kentucky this weekend, the National Rifle Association focused most of its energy on gearing up its members to defeat the Democratic nominee in November, whether it is Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. NRA leaders warned that both risk eroding gun ownership rights. But their influence is hampered by a tough national climate for Republicans, after eight years of President George W. Bush, and a mixed record on past campaigns.

A small but startling sign welcomed the gun lovers who arrived at the National Rifle Association's annual gathering Friday. "Firearms WILL NOT be allowed in Hall A during the Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum." Beyond this sign at the Kentucky Exposition Center was a row of 10 metal detectors. They were manned by uniformed Secret Service officers deployed because the scheduled speakers included presumptive Republican nominee John McCain.

"...Yet it would be useless to deny the existence of a general feeling in the commmunity that a law against carrying pistols would be a virtual disarmament of the law-abiding citizen, who would obey the statute, for the benefit of the lawless, who would persistently disregard it. That opinion was even expressed by a Magistrate on the bench, and is, no doubt, largely shared by the better portion...."

"...If it is impracticable to forbid the carrying of pistols outright, their sale should at least be so restricted as to furnish a partial guarantee against their getting into improper hands...."

"...And thus we see how that the individual Constitutional Right was PUBLICLY and NATIONALLY ADMITTED, as well as how the subversion started...."
