John Longenecker: Stand Your Ground Movement, Part IV: Legislation
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

... "Mistaken again, Mrs. Brady announces that the people of Florida are somehow identical to the criminal shooters, the hot-heads, the aggressive who shouldn’t even be in possession of any weapon, madam. The acts Brady cites are likely criminal in nature, and not at all likely to meet a standard of self-defense. Her angle is that the Stand Your Ground doctrine is applied as a legal defense in indictment for criminal acts. Mrs. Brady conveniently – intentionally, I believe – ignores the facts that the law does not shield individuals who are part of a crime, or an ongoing altercation or shouldn’t even have a weapon – any weapon, Mrs. Brady – to begin with. The law is much more sensible than Mrs. Brady will admit." ...

"If you've been listening to the news, you know that the immigration bill may soon be back on the U.S. Senate floor for consideration. ... The new bill, S. 1639, contains both of the concerns that GOA alerted you to last month:"

"* First, section 205 of the bill could, in the hands of an anti-gun administration, PUT EVERY MAJOR GUN SHOP OUT OF BUSINESS. ..."

"* Second, the immigration bill could deny many gun owners their right to find a job or buy a gun."

"In regard to the latter concern, Montana Senator Max Baucus (D) is sponsoring an amendment that will delete all references to 'driver's licenses' and 'identification cards' under the REAL ID Act." ...

"The House of Representatives has fast-tracked new legislation to 'improve' the National Instant Criminal Background Check System by allowing doctors to now decide who can own firearms." ...

"If the Act passes in the Senate, it would provide grants so states can add the names of criminals to the NICS system ... but it also flags those with medical or psychological issues as unfit to possess a gun."

"The plan allows names to be entered into the NICS system based solely on a physician's diagnosis or prescription of a medication: adults who have taken Ritalin and soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder would be classified as mentally ill and given the same opportunity to own firearms as convicted felons: None." ...

"The dog then turned to attack another neighbor who was approaching with a .45-caliber pistol. He killed the dog with one shot to the head, McGee said." ...

"Nearly 20,000 people in Orange County are legally carrying concealed guns, records show. The number of licenses for concealed weapons in the county has jumped 20 percent in the past year and has risen 57 percent in the past five years." ...

Newmarket's Notre Dame Catholic Elementary School was locked down Tuesday after someone spotted on school property with what was thought to be a gun.

The gun turned out to be a toy, said principal Tom Colangelo in a letter later sent to parents yesterday.

"Given the fact that it is sometimes impossible to tell the real thing from a toy weapon, I called a code red and contacted York Regional Police," Mr. Colangelo explained.

One person was arrested at the school but later released, police spokesperson Kathleen Griffin said.

"We were called in for the spotting of a handgun," she added. "But the investigation was unfounded."

"AB 1471: This bill would mandate pistol manufacturers microstamp firearms in two separate locations with the gun's make, model, and serial number so this information is imprinted on any cartridge casing fired in the gun. The idea is that brass recovered at crime scenes could be traced back to the owner of the gun that did the shooting. It sounds wonderful in theory and demonstrations on how this works make for good television."

"For years, governments have enacted laws that state one’s home is a place where one should be free of prying and violent attack. Known as 'Castle Laws,' they are often based on English Common Law from the 1700s. However, over the years many of these laws, while acknowledging the safety and protections of the home, have placed a burden on a person to retreat before being permitted to use force to defend themselves."

"In Ohio, if one is attacked in one's own home, one is not forced to flee the home before using deadly force. However, Ohio’s current self-defense law places the civil and criminal burden on the victim to prove in court that they were truly acting to defend themselves from serious physical harm or death." ...

"Gun-control supporters claim irrelevantly and incorrectly that gun control, which includes bans, prevents crime."

"Within 15 years after D.C. banned handguns, its murder rate tripled. Since 1988, its murder rate has been the highest among major U.S. cities every year but three. Across the Potomac in Virginia, where handguns can be legally carried for protection against criminals in most places, violent crime is a fraction of what it is in D.C." ...

"The reason that the NRA opposes bills that block sales to terrorists is because they can see that on the surface these bills fight terrorism, but below the surface they destroy the civil liberties of honest gun owners. Many people are not gun friendly because they only view guns through the anti-gun media and what they see through the images of Hollywood.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Re "Hunting gets bad rap" (June 18) -

It's too bad staff writer Galen Eagle did not ask the basic and obvious question of gun instructor Don Davey - what the heck does shooting pistols have to do with hunting?

These guns are not designed for hunting: at best they are designed for target practice in enclosed areas under strict rules, at worst they are designed to shoot people. Glorifying hand guns in this piece does nothing to reduce the idiotic and meaningless feelings of power that some people deem important to attain.

Making hand guns seem "cool" to possess does nothing to inform impressionable people and youths to the dangers and horrors of hand guns in civil society.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
