The mastermind of the worst terrorist attack on American soil is dead, U.S. President Barack Obama announced late Sunday night, almost 10 years after the attacks that killed almost 3,000 people.

Osama bin Laden -- the longtime leader of al Qaeda -- was killed by U.S. forces in a mansion outside the Pakistani capital of Islamabad along with other family members, a senior U.S. official told CNN.

Ed.: Oh, Happy Day! Yes, I am breaking my policy on headline shouting in this case. It is good to be the editor. :-)

BISMARCK, N.D. Employees at North Dakota's state mental hospital in Jamestown won't be allowed to keep guns in their vehicles while they're at work.

Last month, lawmakers passed a bill that says workers can keep firearms locked in their vehicles on company property even if their employers don't like it.

The bill allowed employees at the Jamestown state hospital to bring firearms to work as long as the guns were kept in their vehicles.

But on Friday the Legislature decided the new law shouldn't extend to state hospital employees.

Glenn Reynolds and the NRA's Wayne LaPierre talk about what's made the 2nd Amendment stronger than ever, and how PJTV plays an important role in defending it.

But LaPierre warns, "I look at this 2012 election. It could break the back of the 2nd Amendment in this country. When you look at the Supreme Count, it hangs by only one vote. President Obama, despite paying lip service to the 2 amend put Sotomayoer and Elana Kegan on the Court, who will spend the next 25 year to gut this freedom."

Area retailers said they can't keep up with the demand for pepper spray.

Local sporting good stores and gun shops have sold thousands of the aerosol spray canisters that can incapacitate an attacker by causing temporary blindness, difficulty breathing, a runny nose and coughing.

The killing of Brianna Denison by what police say is a serial rapist has many young women looking for any line of defense, retail clerks said.

An Ottawa native, now an attorney for a prestigious Chicago law firm, and his associate, a former Illinois governor, have been appointed to fight the recent Illinois Attorney General's Office's decision to have state police release names of state-registered gun owners.

Matthew R. Carter, who was born and raised in Ottawa, and former Illinois Gov. James R. Thompson — colleagues in the Chicago law firm of Winston & Strawn, LLP — will represent the Department of State Police to argue the Attorney General's Office was wrong when it issued a recent opinion that state police should make available the names and information of the 1.3 million state residents with Firearm Owner Identification cards.

Thousands of National Rifle Association members and supporters are expected to make their way to downtown Pittsburgh today to take in the last day of the NRA’s annual convention. Over the span of the three day event as many as 70,000 were expected to attend. Among them was Megan Burns of Greensburg who brought her two young children. “Mostly just to see what guns the new manufacturers have come out with and also just to show my kids what the NRA is about and why it is here,” said Burns. She says she also wants to help her children understand the importance of the second amendment and the “responsibility that comes along with owning guns.”
 

AZ: Citing gun bill’s lack of clarity, Brewer applies veto

Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday vetoed a bill that would have allowed people to carry guns into most government buildings that don’t have armed guards or metal detectors in place.

...

Brewer said the gun bill’s many provisions on various firearms topics lacked clarity, including where guns would have been prohibited and where they would have been allowed.

Describing herself as a gun-rights backer, Brewer said she will work in coming months on “a clear and pragmatic solution to expand the application of our Second Amendment rights in Arizona.”

Liberals are frustrated with Barack Obama for not aggressively pushing gun control, but you wouldn't know it from the National Rifle Association's annual meeting.

With no clearly preferred Republican candidate among the 70,000 people who descended on the convention center here this weekend, Obama's name came up more than any other.

Leaders of the powerful gun lobby talked as if the president had declared an all-out war on the Second Amendment. The dire rhetoric is intended to galvanize activists going into the 2012 election season, despite huge legislative gains last November and significant progress advancing their agenda at the state level.

Three important handgun bills that I strongly support were passed by the House with wide bipartisan support and are now in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

HB 2787 prohibits any public body from disclosing information that identifies the holder of or an applicant for a concealed handgun license.

HB 2792 deals with reciprocity of concealed carry permits. It provides nonresidents who are authorized to carry a concealed handgun in another state with the same protections provided to persons with an Oregon concealed handgun license.

The University of Kentucky has fired a graduate student and former anesthesia technician, Michael Mitchell, for keeping a gun in his car a mile away from the university hospital where he was employed.

The university then proceeded to try to deny Mitchell unemployment compensation by claiming, unsuccessfully, that he was fired for misconduct. A hearing officer found against the University of Kentucky and in favor of Mitchell.

All this, despite the fact that Mitchell had a Kentucky concealed carry permit, believed he had fully complied with Kentucky law governing concealed carry, and therefore cooperated fully with police and university authorities.

Attorney General Eric Holder needs to go if he continues to claim he did not know the details about “Project Gunrunner” and the Justice Department continues to stonewall Congress about the controversial gun sting operation.

So said Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association in a Saturday speech that brought an audience of NRA members to their feet several times at the association’s 140th annual members’ meeting here. It was a demand anticipated by a CBS News blog late Friday.

A new book by Free Thinkers Media is a field guide to identifying political lies in real-time while exposing the end-to-end canards of the modern gun control movement.

“Guy Smith has made hamburger out of some sacred cows,” said Cheryl Mannix of Free Thinkers Media. “Shooting The Bull, Guy Smith’s new book, is a funny, intellectual blow-off to politicians, policy groups and everyone else who has conned the public about guns and crime.”
 

AZ: Failure of campus gun bill based on flawed logic

The guns on campus law that recently failed may have raised the crime rate, but that's only because it would only have allowed guns near campus, not in the hands of their owners, meaning that they could easily be stolen by irresponsible criminals. Allowing guns on campus would not raise campus crime. Having researched this topic thoroughly for an English paper, I'd like to address some erroneous assumptions made about guns on campus.

The St. Gabriel Possenti Society, Inc. rejoices at the beatification in Rome on Sunday of Pope John Paul II," Society chairman John M. Snyder said today.

"The late Pope's writings display an appreciation of the right of self-defense so exemplified by St. Gabriel Possenti," Snyder added.

St. Gabriel Possenti used handguns in self-defense when he rescued the villagers of Isola del Gran Sasso, Italy in 1860 from a band of terrorists. Demonstrating his excellent handgun marksmanship, he shot a lizard running across the road. Then, without harming anyone, he drove the terrorists out of town.

Reacting to the suspected kidnapping of a 19-year-old student from a home near the University of Nevada, Reno, a campus police officer Wednesday gave about 100 people tips on how to stay safe and keep from being a victim.

“Personal safety can’t be guaranteed, but good personal practices minimize the risks,” Officer Eric James said during a safety presentation at the Joe Crowley Student Union. “These little tips are what keep people alive.”

Ed.: No mention of using a gun, arguably the best self-defense tool ever invented.

A crusader for city bodegas wants to turn deli owners into Dirty Harrys - by urging them to pack heat behind the counter.

Luis Ducasse, head of the Bodega Association of the United States, has been targeting cornershops and delis in crime-ridden neighborhoods, handing out gun-license applications to owners.

"Deli owners make for easy victims," he said. "A person can come in wearing a ski mask and carrying a gun, and the person behind the counter has no place to go, or way to fight back."

Pass

...

In an explanation of the veto, Brewer said the bill had "too many loopholes and flaws" to sign into law. Brewer "has a long and very strong pro-Second Amendment record," said her spokesman, Matthew Benson. "But these bills, in her view, just took the state down the wrong path."

Charles Heller, a spokesman for the Arizona Citizens Defense League, which supported S.B. 1201, told the Arizona Republic, "I don't know what's gotten into her." It's far too optimistic to say logic has gotten into Brewer, but the veto was commendable all the same. For that, Brewer gets a solid pass.

Ed.: Time to elect a pro-gun governor in AZ.
