"The 'sideshow' analogy is curious, but hardly a coincidence. The Brady Campaign put out another of their 'people are dead-send us money' solicitations a week ago characterizing the Fast and Furious investigation as 'the circus in Washington,' and charging the 'scandal… was cooked up on a right-wing blog.'”

Once again, the Virginia Citizens Defense League has delivered for Virginia gun owners. Thanks to the tireless efforts of VCDL activists, the 2012 Legislative Session was even more of a rousing success than the 2011 Session. Not only was every single anti-gun bill opposed by VCDL defeated but the session ended with almost a dozen VCDL supported bills passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor McDonnell.

These important changes will take effect on July 1st …
 

Teen Who Saved Siblings From Intruders Is Why I'll Teach My Kids to Shoot a Gun

How often does a story about a teenager and a handgun have a happy ending? This one definitely does: A 14-year-old boy in Phoenix saved his younger siblings' lives by shooting and critically wounding an armed intruder with a handgun. ...
I'm not saying guns and kids are always a good mix -- indeed, often they're an incredibly dangerous combination. But maybe that's because kids generally aren't educated about guns and how to use them properly. I don't have a gun in my house and my kids can barely use a can opener, but if I did have a gun and they were older, I'd want them to learn how to shoot it.

A Minneapolis man says he was beaten by police as he left a downtown nightclub.

Zachary King says he was walking to his car when police noticed his gun in his waist band. He claims he told police he had a permit to carry, but they still attacked him.

King suffered a concussion after five officers beat him on Father’s Day night. King says video of the assault was taken by a bystander. He says it all started when police noticed a bulge near his waist band.

Submitter's note: As a permit holder, this smells big time. I can see this happening in Minneapolis

The United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ruled this week that it is unconstitutional for Chicago to treat people with non-violent misdemeanor convictions the same as convicted felons.

The NRA-supported case, Gowder v. Chicago, involves plaintiff Shawn Gowder, who was convicted as a first-time offender for mere possession of a firearm in violation of Illinois law in 1995. His misdemeanor record did not block him from getting a state Firearm Owner’s Identification card, so he could still legally possess a gun in Illinois.

A PAFOA user from Northampton County named Micky writes that when walking the popular trail in the borough, he stopped to read a sign that outlines rules for its use.

"Now, for once, I did not have my weapon on me, nor did my wife," Micky wrote June 13. "Part of (the sign) said 'no weapons.' Now, the trail isn't privately owned, so I was asking myself 'wtf?'"

Micky writes that he was concerned about his Second Amendment right to possess a firearm possibly being infringed upon, and subsequently called the Borough of Hellertown for more information about the posted rule.

He ultimately visited Borough Hall, where he spoke to a Hellertown police officer, acccording to the account posted online.

"The defendant acted in self defense," said Chris Lee, District Attorney's Office spokesman.

San Bernardino police arrested Tomlinson after he stabbed 52-year-old Clemonsey Thompson in the 3000 block of North Mojave Court. Thompson died about an hour later at Loma Linda University Medical Center.

Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told FOX News over the weekend: that “there is no evidence, let me repeat no evidence, of White House involvement in any cover up or attempt to cover up this issue,” Carney said.

A weekend shooting in Arizona involving a 14-year-old might give some people second thoughts about a proposal for mandatory safe storage of firearms here in Washington State.

In this case, the teen was defending his home and three younger siblings from a bold daylight home invasion. The boy, according to Fox News and the Associated Press, was able to access a firearm kept in his parents’ bedroom and shoot a 37-year-old armed burglar who was aiming a gun at the youth after smashing through the front door.

Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, the state's most strident gun-rights group , lost its tax-exempt status last year after failing to file with the IRS for three straight years.

But the group, known for its hard-ball politics, as of Friday was still claiming to be a tax-exempt nonprofit on its web site, although the IRS revoked its status in May 2011.

In addition, the Colorado secretary of state this May suspended the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners' registration as a "charitable organization" for failure to file timely reports. Nonprofits that solicit funds must be registered with the secretary of state under Colorado law. Failure to do so is a misdemeanor, secretary of state spokeman Andrew Cole said.

A 26-year-old Aurora woman was acquitted Monday of first-degree murder charges that she stabbed her live-in boyfriend to death in November 2010 during an argument.

“This is the best case of self-defense this court has ever witnessed,” said Kane County Judge Timothy Sheldon in announcing his not guilty decision for Faith M. Martin.

Ed.: *This* is why we need SYG provisions that prohibit an arrest and charges without substantial evidence in likely self-defense cases.

What does it mean to “brandish” a firearm? A Michigan jury will have to answer that question in next month’s trial of 18-year-old Sean Combs, who was arrested in April after being stopped by police while carrying a loaded M-1 Garand rifle strapped to his back.

An armed Combs was walking with his girlfriend through downtown Birmingham, an affluent Detroit suburb with a popular nightlife district. It was about 10 p.m. on a Saturday and sidewalks were crowded when police spotted Combs and suspected him to be under 18 — too young to legally carry a gun.

Ed.: An M16/AR15? Really? Must not be any free pictures of a Garand. Oh, wait: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:M1_Garand_rifle_-_USA_-_30-06_-_Arm%C3%A9museum.jpg

With the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee recommending U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder be held in Contempt of Congress, and President Obama citing “Executive Privilege” and refusing to turn over numerous documents the congressional investigative committee has requested as part of their investigation into Operation Fast and Furious, this governmental debacle is all over the news. Gun owners should pay particular attention.

Three little-known Republicans hoping to take on Democratic U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in November will face off Tuesday in what is expected to be a low-turnout primary election.

Attorney Wendy Long, Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos and U.S. Rep. Bob Turner have been trying to energize Republican voters in a state where primary turnouts can be notoriously low.

Fewer than 7 percent of Republicans voted in April's presidential primary, and this year's congressional primary date has moved up from its traditional slot in September, raising additional concerns that voters will stay home.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to rewrite Chicago's firearm ordinance in response to a ruling by a federal judge who struck down a section of the city's law he called vague and unconstitutional.

Emanuel said Monday he wants individuals with a violent misdemeanor conviction to be banned from getting a gun permit for five years. The mayor also wants violent convicted felons to face a lifelong ban.

Emanuel plans to introduce the revisions at Wednesday's City Council meeting.

Count on the mainstream press, including Monday morning’s Seattle Times, to start devoting increased attention to Operation Fast and Furious, but only when it can find a way to distance the Obama White House from the scandal.

Unfortunately for Obama's media cheerleaders, The Hill reports Monday morning that a new poll reveals that a majority of likely voters in this fall’s election believe Barack Obama “exercised his executive power inappropriately – particularly in blocking the release of documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious.” More about that in a moment.

The ordinance would require any new gun stores to go through a permitting process with the city – similar to a recently passed ordinance governing tobacco stores located within 1,000 feet of schools.

I need my gun so I can shoot people who cut me off on the 405. Wait. Did I say that out loud? No, no. I need my gun so I can shoot animals who’ve done nothing to me.
And, I need to be protected by law to choose any toxic substance I want to shoot those animals with. Because animals on public lands are there for hunters to enjoy killing, not for those environazis who believe animals have a purpose beyond benefiting humans. The world and all its creatures were created specifically for me to kill, even if most of those creatures existed millions of years before humans.
