Safer Streets 2010: Ambush of guests by a hotel?

"90 million gun owners are a force to be reckoned with. The so-called 'gun lobby' has its purpose, but it is not hiding under every bed in every case of speaking out. Individuals speak out in their own voice, because individuals suffer various indignities hardly none of us would really stand for. Gun owners put up with a lot of crap, nearly all of it illegal and certainly dangerous."

"... Gun owner or not, how do you feel about courtesies and such in the hospitality industry? Shouldn't they be helpful and neutral? How would you feel if your host hotel disagreed with your politics, acted on that, took your money anyway [gobs of it] and then exposed you to personal risk once they had your money (on the barrel head or credit card)? ..." ...

"Marriott lies to callers about corporate policy. Contact information for corporate executives is now available."

"Less than a day after gun rights organization Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC) put the Marriott hotel chain on its 'Don't Buy' list, input to Marriott is coming in from around the country. After [other Examiners] followed up on this writer's original piece, anti-Marriott postings began appearing on gun forums such as The High Road nationwide. ..."

"As you recall in yesterday's article, the Charlotte Marriott City Center first took the money of hundreds of NRA conventioneers staying at the hotel, plus nearly $10,000 for GRNC's 'Gala for Gun Rights' held at the hotel and then ... made inadvertent criminals of conventioneers by posting 'no firearms' signs on hotel entrances ..." ...

Then, while the gala was in full swing, Marriott posted 'no guns' signs at all the entrances, turning all who carried firearms into instant criminals, according to North Carolina law."

Feds: States' growing gun-rights movement a threat

"The federal government is arguing in a gun-rights case pending in federal court in Montana that state plans to exempt in-state guns from various federal requirements themselves make the laws void, because the growing movement certainly would impact 'interstate commerce.'"

"The government continues to argue to the court that the Commerce Clause in the U.S. Constitution should be the guiding rule for the coming decision. The argument plays down the significance of both the Second Amendment right to bear arms and the 10th Amendment provision that reserves to states all prerogatives not specifically granted the federal government in the Constitution." ...

"US Attorney General Eric Holder's charachterization of recent Georgia legislation (clarifying that licensed gun owners can carry holstered handguns in the non-sterile areas of airports) as 'very worrisome' seems to overlook reality: Most states have long allowed gun carry in airports."

"Last year a man was arrested by the Pittsburgh Airport Police for open carrying a holstered handgun in Pittsburgh International Airport. In Pennsylvania, like most states, no permit is usually required to open carry a handgun at age 18."

"But the Allegheny County ordinance enforced by the police was in conflict with Pennsylvania law - and thus the law, not the gun, was illegal. The judge entered a judgment of 'not guilty.'" ...

"A recent political cartoon run in several Central Ohio newspapers shows the severity of the anti-gun bias prevalent in the establishment media. The cartoon depicts a man wearing an NRA armband handing a rifle to a stereotype caricature of what is presumed to be a Muslim terrorist. Under the picture are the words 'NRA fights effort to deny guns to people on terrorist watch list.' (Click here to view the cartoon.)"

"Obviously, the cartoon is intended to be an example of exaggerating the truth to make a political point."

"But, in this case there isn't even a kernel of truth to exaggerate."

"Not only is the Muslim terrorist in full religious garb offensive, but the entire premise of the cartoon is flawed. ..." ...

"Lawyers for the District of Columbia who are fighting an effort to expose the time and money the city and its outside attorneys spent in its ultimately unsuccessful defense of the city's handgun ban said this week that the private counsel who helped the District all served pro bono."

"The District's Office of the Attorney General does not want to provide billing record information to the attorneys who defeated the firearm ban in the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008. Those attorneys ... said information about the city's effort is relevant to the plaintiffs' request for more than $3.5 million in fees."

"The firearm industry marches to its own drummer. It thrives when manufacturers and retailers—together with the voluble [NRA]—convince heat-inclined consumers that tougher gun control is on the way."

"That paradox of declining gun sales in an era of relative gun friendliness was on display at the NRA's annual meeting ..." ...

"Gun and ammunition sales grew 8.9 percent in 2009 to $10.4 billion, reports research firm IBISWorld. Some of that growth came from huge military ammo buys to supply troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. A lot of it, however, reflected the purchase of guns and bullets by consumers who feared Obama would restrict sales later. ..." ...

"I can no longer take the time to reply individually to these queries ..."

"Civics 101: No treaty is effective unless ratified by a supermajority of the U.S. Senate. The Senate still has not ratified the CIFTA gun control treaty ... There is currently NOT sufficient political will in Washington to muster a supermajority of the Senate to ratify the U.N. treaty ..."

"A group of clergy and voting activists held a 45-minute impromptu prayer vigil outside Sen. Jon Tester's Washington office Thursday morning before meeting with the Montana Democrat to urge him to drop his support for a gun rights bill."

"'As clergy in the nation's capital, we have presided over the wakes and funerals of people who have been gunned down in acts of violence,' said the Rev. Dr. Gail Anderson-Holness, the president of the Council of Churches of Great Washington, in a prepared release. 'Today, we prayed that Sen. Tester will reconsider his (pro-gun) bill and support local control over local issues. We know our message was heard.'" ...

Submitter's Note: Since Rev. Dr. A-H is such a supporter of "local control over local issues" we can only assume that s/he would have opposed the federal desegregation of schools in the '50s, the Civil Rights Act of the '60s, the Clinton ugly-gun ban of the '90s and Obama's 'reform' of health care.

"Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Thursday urged U.S. lawmakers to reinstate a ban on assault weapons during a joint-session address to Congress."

"Calderon said that while he respected the U.S. Constitution's guarantees on gunowners' rights, the legal flow of assault weapons has resulted in the weapons falling into the hands of drug gangs who are locked in a violent war with the Mexican government."

"'I will ask Congress to help us, with respect, and understand how important it is for us to enforce current laws to stem the flow of guns and enforce existing laws as well as consider reinstating the assault weapons ban,' the Mexican president told lawmakers in both parties assembled Thursday morning in the House chamber." ...

"MEXICAN PRESIDENT Felipe Calderón has shown courage in leading his government to take on the violent drug gangs that have claimed thousands of Mexican lives. On Thursday, he displayed a different kind of fortitude: standing before a joint meeting of Congress and asking for a revival of the U.S. assault weapons ban. The Obama administration, which has been largely absent in the fight against the illegal gun trade, should have such backbone."

"Mr. Calderón, who has been in Washington for a state visit, made a powerful case. Over the past three years, Mexican authorities have seized some 75,000 weapons used in crimes; more than 80 percent of those they were able to trace came from the United States ..." [emphasis added] ...

Submitter's Note: But since they've only traced 20% of siezed weapons, that means that less than 17% came from the US.

"Senate candidate Rand Paul's views on guns are unlikely to land him in as hot political water as his bizarre understanding of the nation's most important civil rights law, but they are nearly as muddled and they are discomforting."

"In his ill-fated televised chat Wednesday night with Rachel Maddow on MSNBC ... Dr. Paul struck a sour key with an analogy to guns. If federal law prohibited a restaurant owner from declining service to a customer on the basis of race, he seemed to argue, then it could also prevent a business from refusing to allow patrons to bring guns onto its premises."

"... The bigger issue -- one that voters should weigh carefully -- is that he sees a linkage between gun laws and guarantees of equal rights." ...

"With the Supreme Court expected, in McDonald v. Chicago, to strike down Chicago's handgun ban (the decision is expected as soon as next month), rabidly anti-gun mayor Richard Daley is exploring options. Resigned to the likelihood of losing his beloved handgun ban, he seeks the consolation prize of gun laws even more restrictive than those that have replaced Washington D.C.'s handgun ban."

"As we've discussed before, D.C.'s gun laws are such that to come up with laws even more strict, short of an outright ban, will require some truly creative gun-hatred on the part of the Chicago government. Fortunately (from the perspective of the forcible citizen disarmament advocates), Daley and his minions seem up to the task." ...
