Gun owners’ guide to the 4th Amendment: Stop and Frisk

"Since we started our discussion of the 4th Amendment with seizures, which are governed by Terry v Ohio and its progeny, it only makes sense to next move on to the topic of 'Stop and Frisk' which is also governed by the Terry line of cases."

"But if they are based on the same material, why didn’t we just cover this material in the column on seizures? ... The short answer is that seizures (the 'stop') and searches (the 'frisk') are distinct activities from a 4th Amendment perspective and each requires independent justification. A given situation may provide the officer reasonable suspicion to stop you but may not give the officer reasonable suspicion to support a frisk." ...

"The Washington Post recently reported on the first meeting of the legislative task force reviewing Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law, and the unchallenged lies start out in the first paragraph: 'The parents of a 17-year-old teen killed by a neighborhood watch captain asked a task force reviewing Florida's 'stand your ground law' Tuesday to recommend changing it so that defendants who initiate a confrontation can’t use it as part of their self-defense argument.' Traditionally one of the tasks of journalists is to check facts and verify information before presenting it to the public.

"Gun-control advocates are noticeably silent when crime rates decline. Their multimillion-dollar lobbying efforts are designed to manufacture mass anxiety that every gun owner is a potential killer. The statistics show otherwise."

"Last week, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced that violent crime decreased 4 percent in 2011. The number of murders, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults all went down, continuing a pattern."

"'This is not a one-year anomaly, but a steady decline in the FBI’s violent-crime rates,' said Andrew Arulanandam, spokesman for the National Rifle Association. 'It would be disingenuous for anyone to not credit increased self-defense laws to account for this decline.'" ...

The lightning rod for much of this invective is U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who is facing a possible contempt of Congress citation for his refusal to turn over certain Department of Justice documents relating to the ATF's discontinued 'Fast and Furious' operation on the southwest border. While Republicans' rift with Holder has been well chronicled, the architect of their messaging campaign has gone largely unnoticed." ...

The study examined shootings in 18 New York cities, including Albany, Schenectady and Troy. It found that government programs, along with special funds culled from fees charged to hospitals and insurers, were needed to offset nearly $768 million of treatment for shooting victims during a five-year period ending in 2011. And that figure represents shootings from just 18 cities, including New York City, and is not a statewide estimate." ...
