Submitted by: Anonymous

Citing the "make my day" law, officials announced Thursday that no charges will be filed against the man who shot Zoey Ripple, 21, after police say she drunkenly entered his home early Wednesday.

The Boulder County District Attorney's Office said prosecutors will decide in the next few days whether to file any trespassing or other charges against Ripple, who is listed as a University of Colorado student majoring in speech, language and hearing sciences.

The owners of the modern, 4,000-square-foot home at 425 College Ave. are Timothy Justice and Doreen Orion, according to county records. They are both psychiatrists, and Orion is also an author.
 

Finland: Gunman kills 2, wounds 7 in Finland, then arrested

An 18-year-old gunman killed two people and wounded seven early Saturday in a random shooting in a southern Finnish town, police said.

Officers arrested the suspect near Hyvinkaa, some five hours after he fired several shots from a low rooftop at people gathered outside a restaurant just before 2 a.m.

The suspect, a resident of Hyvinkaa, 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Helsinki, did not have a firearms permit. The two guns — a small-bore rifle and a hunting rifle — found nearby were legally registered, police said, but it was not clear how the shooter had acquired them.

... Milwaukee is one of an increasing number of cities around the country — just under 70 to date, including some in the New York area — that are using a gunshot detection system, called ShotSpotter, to pinpoint the location of gunfire seconds after it occurs. Last year, the company that developed ShotSpotter began offering a more affordable system, and that has brought in new clients and led other cities to consider trying it.

The Department of Homeland Security has been forced to release a list of keywords and phrases it uses to monitor social networking sites and online media for signs of terrorist or other threats against the U.S.

The intriguing the list includes obvious choices such as 'attack', 'Al Qaeda', 'terrorism' and 'dirty bomb' alongside dozens of seemingly innocent words like 'pork', 'cloud', 'team' and 'Mexico'.

Released under a freedom of information request, the information sheds new light on how government analysts are instructed to patrol the internet searching for domestic and external threats.

 

Praxis: Army Bans P-Mags. Never underestimate the propensity for rear echelon bureacracy to screw things up for the troops.

The Army has ordered that soldiers may use only government-issued magazines with their M4 carbines, a move that effectively bans one of the most dependable and widely used commercial-made magazines on today's battlefield.
The past decade of war has spawned a wave of innovation in the commercial soldier weapons and equipment market. ...
Near the top of such advancements is the PMAG polymer M4 magazine, introduced by Magpul Industries Corp. in 2007. ...
Of course when all these P-Mags are dutifully turned in, they will be promptly crushed. Insanity.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: Contact your congressman and demand that, if they must be turned in, they be sold on the surplus market. This could save millions.

A far safer, less risky and more reliable option to having a gun or an alarm is readily available. A dog may easily deter a potential intruder by simply barking and may protect the home's occupant from harm by attacking an actual intruder. The cowards who murdered Cates and the Zantops would have run for their lives if they had been confronted by a snarling Akita or German shepherd!

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is alerting North Carolina gun owners that state lawmakers are attempting to pass a new “emergency powers” law that may be more restrictive than the one a federal judge just struck down.

House Bill 489, according to Grass Roots North Carolina, would enable cities to restrict firearms rights in the home in emergencies, something they never had the authority to do.

Whatever happened to concerns about patrons carrying guns in bars after Ohio legislators adopted a new law last year?

"It hasn't been long enough to come to any conclusions on it for sure," said Toby Hoover, executive director of the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence.

Police have not noticed a change either.

"I haven't heard anything about it since then," said Jay McDonald, president of the Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio, which opposed the law.

Jim Irvine of the Buckeye Firearms Association, which supported the measure, said he never considered the law very controversial because of the many states that already allowed guns in bars.

If you’ve heard the name Chris Kyle in recent months, chances are you’ve associated it with one (or more) of the following: (a) with 160 confirmed kills, Chris Kyle is the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, (b) Chris Kyle is the Navy SEAL, from SEAL Team 3, who just wrote the book about his experiences as a sniper during four tours of duty in Iraq, and/or (c) Chris Kyle is the guy who may or may not have punched Jesse Ventura in the face at a SEAL bar in southern California.

But if that’s all you know about him, then, you don’t know enough.

The concept behind Fin, Feather and Fur Outfitters has taken flight as owner Mike Goschinski is poised to open his third store later this month at Belden Village in Jackson Township.

Goschinski and his family opened the first store in a 2,400 square foot block building in Ashland in 1985, selling firearms, hunting, camping, fishing and hiking equipment. The following year, Goschinski bought the entire operations from his family members, and in 2000 he moved into a 72,000 square foot building a quarter of a mile down the road. The original store became a destination spot with as many as 500,000 customers visiting over the course of a year.

Recently President Obama took the first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is committing the U.S. to a UN “International Small Arms Treaty.”

By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the U.S. State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress.

This has caused the price of these automatic weapons to increase exponentially each year because there are a limited number of them.

For example, a semi-automatic Colt AR-15 sells for $1,500 while its fully-automatic version sells for $17,000. Prices will continue to go up each year with no end in sight. This is a pretty common machine gun, but the rare ones sell for more than a house.

A national coalition will push for repeal of a Kansas law that is similar to one at the center of controversy in the slaying of a Florida teen.

The Second Chance on Shoot First campaign seeks to repeal or reform so-called “Stand Your Ground” laws that give people the authority to defend themselves using lethal force if they have a reasonable fear of death or serious harm.

By now, the scene is familiar: Two men get into an altercation — one black, one Hispanic. One is armed with a handgun and shoots the other dead.

The victim is unarmed; the shooter claims self-defense and walks free.

For more than a month, the victim's family waits to see whether authorities will file charges against the shooter.

A shooting near the Space Needle Saturday that apparently involved an admitted gang member from Kent will almost certainly spark a new effort by the City of Seattle, no doubt with support from Washington Ceasefire, to attack Washington State’s preemption statute.

Seattle tried that in the courts and in March, that legal strategy was derailed by the state Supreme Court when it declined to review Seattle’s unanimous loss before the state Court of Appeals last fall. That was 20 months after Seattle lost at the trial court level in an effort to ban firearms from city park facilities.

More Arizonans were killed by guns in 2009 than in motor-vehicle incidents, evidence of the need for stricter gun laws, according to a report released this week.

The report by the Violence Policy Center said Arizona was one of 10 states where firearm deaths outstripped traffic deaths in 2009, the most recent year for which numbers were available.

Recently I was watching Fox News showing a street in a Syrian city. People were running for cover, running from the Bashar military, trying to not be shot. The people want freedom from the Tyrant Bashar, but have no weapons. It is reported that 5,000 people were killed by the military of the Bashar regime in the Homs region of Syria in a time period of two weeks. The people have nothing with which to defend themselves. How well our founding fathers knew that a people must be armed to protect themselves.

Yes, The Daily Caller is really giving away guns. Let’s face it: Nothing says “thank you” better than a nice pistol. We’re the only full-service online news outlet to launch a dedicated Guns & Gear section, and we owe our readers thanks for making it a success.

So beginning today, Memorial Day, and stretching to November 6, Election Day, TheDC is giving away one high-capacity 9mm FMK 9C1 every week. That’s 25 firearms in all, and each one has the Bill of Rights engraved on the slide.

Cities around the country have created staff positions for professional lobbyists whose primary function is to drum up support for anti-gun legislation, ordinances and regulations.

Part of these lobbyists salaries are being paid by grants from do-gooder foundations like the Joyce Foundation, but the balance of salaries, benefits and support costs are being borne by you, the taxpayer.

Can shooting someone on your property in self defense always clear you of charges under the Stand Your Ground laws, which has been recently brought under scrutiny by the Trayvon Martin shooting?

Several people in Lake and Sumter counties have successfully escaped murder or manslaughter charges, citing the castle doctrine law that says a person's home is his castle. However, one shooter could not duck prison despite using the defense during his murder trial.

There is a danger to our Second Amendment right to bear arms in the form of a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.

Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) has introduced Senate Bill S.2205 to prohibit U.S. negotiations under this U.N. treaty that would restrict the rights of our citizens to bear arms under the Second Amendment.
