... "Perhaps most troubling and outrageous is the accusation that 'the prosecutors fabricated a story that a firearm that Shipley once owned killed a Mexican army captain, and showed the jury photos of weapons and armament in Mexico that had no connection to this case whatsoever, [and] they improperly sought to inflame the jury with emotional appeal …'" ...
 

Annals of Bureaucracy: How a Shady FFL and Incompetent ATF Agent Almost Landed Me in Jail

"The following is a completely true story. The names have not been changed, because if you’re going to accuse me of committing a crime you’d better be right or else something like this is going to hit #1 in your Google results. This is a story about how one person’s misunderstanding of the law, even when no crime has been committed, can quickly lead to criminal charges and permanent damage. It’s a story of a bureaucracy gone horribly wrong. And what makes it even scarier is that it can happen again to any one of us at any time . . ." ...

"With new battles over individual rights in the age of terrorism, attacks on our gun rights from the UN, a number of Second Amendment cases in the courts and an important upcoming election, your attendance is critical. The theme of Elect Liberty is most important as we set the pro-gun rights agenda for the year to come." ...

"What if Memorial Day reminds us of times when we had more freedom? What if freedom is dying right under our eyes? What if the memory of the past is more fulfilling than the reality of the present?"

"What if the federal government could write any law, regulate any behavior and tax any event, no matter what the Constitution authorized? ... What if the constitutional prohibition on the government's taking of life, liberty or property without due process of law is only for show and is not for real?"

"What if the House of Representatives seriously considered letting the military lock up whatever Americans the president ordered the troops to arrest, without charges filed or lawyers present or a judge presiding? ..." ...

... "As to the 'posturing as a civic improver by leading attacks on a botched gun investigation,' they are referring to the fact that I broke the 'Fast and Furious' scandal story in December, 2010, verifying whistleblower accounts through my own sources within the ATF. I, along with my fellow gun rights blogger David Codrea, was subsequently responsible for linking up whistleblowers like ATF agent John Dodson first with Senator Sessions' office and then with Senator Grassleys'. The SPLC, which has long had a symbiotic relationship with ATF (they defended ATF during the racist Good O' Boys Roundup scandal) is likely taking this opportunity to express their dislike of my criticism of their gravy train. ..." ...

"Of special interest to gun owners is that Roque is yet one more member of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s 'Mayors Against Illegal Guns' coalition who has run afoul of the law over serious criminal violations. Gun Rights Examiner has on occasion reported arrests, prosecutions and convictions of numerous other members of a group that seems increasingly comprised of criminals advocating edicts that put the law-abiding at a disadvantage to those who would victimize them." ...

"The Daily Caller, the conservative website founded by Tucker Carlson, has launched an unusual publicity stunt to say the least: Now through Nov. 6—Election Day—the Washington, D.C.-based site will give away a handgun a week."

"The gun giveaway is part of the launch of a 'Guns and Gear' section 'devoted to Second Amendment issues and firearms product news and reviews.'"

"Each 9mm 'FMK 9C1' handgun will be 'engraved with the Bill of Rights.' The Daily Caller ... plans to give away 25 in all." ...

"When asked by email if it was really a good idea to give away guns to readers, Carlson responded: 'Seems obvious. Why wouldn't it be a good idea? We trust our readers.'" ...

"I tend to be something of a miser when it comes to cleaning my guns. Break Free, a Bore Snake, cut up t-shirt and some el cheapo cleaning rods have always been good enough for me. ... On top of being cheap, I’m ridiculously busy, so the idea of spending a chunk of change on high quality rods and cleaning doohickeys that will only require more of my time has always elicited a solid 'meh.' So when Dan asked if I wanted to review J. Dewey Rod’s Complete AR Cleaning Kit, I wasn’t excited, because I don’t find cleaning guns or any gear associated with cleaning my guns as thrilling per se. It turns out there’s a little gun nerd inside me who has been waiting for a kit like this to get him excited about cleaning guns . . ." ...

"The Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation on Thursday launched a new effort that just might hit the right nerve among gun owners across the nation, marketing a new collector’s patch bearing the famous Spartan slogan 'Come and Take Them.'"

"It’s an allusion to how gun rights activists feel about their firearms and their Second Amendment rights when faced with government gun control efforts. The phrase is one of defiance, standing one’s ground and no small amount of 'Double Dog dare you.'" ...

"It’s been awhile since we considered Tucker Carlson’s aggregation kibbutz, the Daily Caller. Apparently sensing this, the Web site has a killer new publicity ploy—literally. [Three minor piano chords.] The Daily Caller will be giving away actual 9mm pistols to its readers, one per week until election day—or, presumably, the first lawsuit. “The pistols come in three different colors and are engraved with the Bill of Rights.” The colors: legal-document eggshell, accidental neighbor-murder crimson, and misinterpretation of the Second Amendment periwinkle." ...

Are militia fanatics a real threat to America?

"... The question arises over just how far private militias can go in enforcement."

"About half the states maintain laws regulating private militias. Wyoming forbids them entirely. In states that do not outlaw them, private militias are limited only by the criminal laws that apply to all of society. In other words, many states and the federal government believe that these militias are not necessary for the control of law and order and discourage their formation. Unfortunately, this doesn’t dampen the enthusiasm of these self-proclaimed gun-totin fanatics." ...

"The Daily Caller, that bastion of faux journalism created by faux journalist and former bow-tie wearer Tucker Carlson, is giving away one gun every week until election day. Just in case the vote doesn’t go as elected, I suppose, Daily Caller readers will be able to exercise Second Amendment remedies, courtesy of the man who recently hosted convicted criminal and fraudster Jack Abramoff, saying he has 'a decency I’m willing to vouch for.'" ...

Speaker participated in a friendly lunch meeting today with the President and other congressional leaders,' House Speaker John Boehner's office reveals. 'The Speaker asked the President to encourage the Attorney General to provide the information Congressional investigators have sought about the Fast and Furious operation. The Speaker was very pleased with the sandwiches served.' So I guess there wasn’t any humble pie, as the President of the United States continues to stonewall the investigation into the ATF's illegal gun running operation, which directly contributed to the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata and [literally] countless Mexican nationals . . ." ...

"If voters agree in November to a constitutional amendment expected to be on the ballot, Louisiana would have the nation's strongest Second Amendment protection ..." ...

"The Louisiana Constitution currently grants[sic] each resident the right to keep and bear arms and provides that 'this right shall not be abridged.' ..."

"The proposed constitutional amendment removes the language allowing laws to prohibit concealed weapons ... and provides that the right to keep and bear arms is 'fundamental and shall not be infringed.'"

"It also imposes a higher standard of proof — 'strict scrutiny' — for determining the constitutionality of any law or any individual effort to restrict gun ownership and carrying guns." ...

"The state House voted Thursday to create a tougher legal hurdle for restricting the right to keep and bear arms in Louisiana."

"The legislation would give the state the strongest Second Amendment-supporting law in the nation, its sponsor, state Sen. Neil Riser, R-Columbia, has said."

"Opponents called the bill unnecessary and a test from the National Rifle Association to see if similar legislation could be enacted in other states." ...

"Broadwater sidestepped the notion that special interests were pushing the legislation."

"'This bill is about setting in stone for the future that this is a fundamental right,' Broadwater said. 'The Supreme Court can change at any time ... and we are so close to the precipice.'" ...

"Rumors of the quota, which allegedly calls for 2,000 people to be arrested over the holiday weekend, first came to light in an email complaint from the officers' union. In that email, the union called the quota 'aggressive, patently unfair, and unjust.'"

"Police Chief Raymond Martinez has denied the reports, saying in an email to Local 10, 'I want to be clear, there is no arrest quota for Memorial Day weekend or any other day on Miami Beach.'" ...

"When Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn touted the city's fourth-straight year of falling crime in February, hundreds of beatings, stabbings and child abuse cases were missing from the count, a Journal Sentinel investigation has found."

"More than 500 incidents since 2009 were misreported to the FBI as minor assaults and not included in the city's violent crime rate, the investigation found. That tally is based on a review of cases that resulted in charges - only about one-fifth of all reported crimes."

"Yet the misreported cases found in 2011 alone are enough that Flynn would have been announcing a 1.1% increase in violent crime in February, instead of a 2.3% decline from the reported 2010 numbers, which also include errors." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of men and women. — Thomas Paine, The Crisis, Intro. (Dec. 1776).
