A young father was charged with felony assault after police say he shot another motorist in the leg when a road rage incident spilled over into his driveway.

But the suspect's family says Mitchell Stanley Fitzgerald was just trying to protect his fiancee and two children after the other motorist drove into his yard and threatened to hurt Fitzgerald's family.

The 26-year-old victim was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the calf after Wednesday's encounter. His name was not released.

Fitzgerald, 20, of Fenwick, was arraigned Thursday before Montcalm County Magistrate Richard Palmer. He is charged with assault to commit great bodily harm less than murder and a weapons charge. He remained jailed in lieu of a $50,000 bond.

An Ohio jury ruled against a prestigious Wyoming gun manufacturer this week and awarded damages to an Ohio man who lost his right leg in a firearm accident in Albany County four years ago. Robert Taylor of Adamsville, Ohio, was awarded $600,000 in damages Thursday against Star Valley gun manufacturer Freedom Arms Inc. following a jury trial, said Taylor's lead counsel, Kent Spence of Jackson. The jury found unanimously that there was a defect in the design of the product, Spence said in a phone interview. He said the jury was also unanimous in determining the defect in the design was the "proximate cause" of the injury to Taylor.

Woodchuck-1, human-0.

In a battle to save his property from a destructive rodent, a 54-year-old man ended up shooting himself in the groin over the holiday weekend, according to Flint Township police.

The man, who had been having problems with a woodchuck tearing up his backyard, decided to take matters into his own hands at 6 p.m. May 26, said Flint Township Lt. James Iacovacci.

Keith Pfeiffer, 54, was cited Friday with "unlawful take of a black bear," Colorado Division of Wildlife spokesman Randy Hampton said.

Wildlife officers have said the bear, which weighed between 40 and 50 pounds, entered Pfeiffer's home May 19 and was chased outside, where it was shot.

Hampton said the charge was pursued because the animal didn't pose a threat when it was shot.

When Wayne Brown of Buffalo walked into the True Bethel Baptist Church lobby to turn in a gun about 11 a.m. Saturday, he figured the elderly women standing in line were waiting for church services. He soon realized they had hundreds of dollars worth of armed weaponry in their hands. Brown was impressed. By the end of the day, so were city officials who organized the “No Questions Asked” Gun Buyback Program, which recovered more than 800 guns and paid out $42,490 in the form of cash cards to 422 residents — many of them surrendering more than one firearm.

She fired and a jury fired back.

It took Macomb County Circuit Court jurors only 15 minutes Friday to convict Bernadette Headd, 40, of Macomb Township of shooting her gun toward a truck that had been tailgating her on I-94.

The jury found Headd guilty of committing assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle and using a firearm during a felony. She faces 2-6 years in prison.

(Note: Ms. Headd had a Concealed Pistol License)

Must convictions for attempting to influence a public servant be vacated when they are based not on a true threat of violence, but on constitutionally protected statements under the First Amendment in pro se pleadings?

The Colorado Court of Appeals has ruled no, affirming the convictions of Rick Stanley of Denver, gun rights activist and former Libertarian candidate for the U.S. Senate, disagreeing with Stanley’s contention that the statute he was convicted of violating was applied to him in violation of his right to freedom of speech under the First Amendment.

An ABC News crew was in the city recently to film a local state representative and ask him questions about Second Amendment rights and gun issues.

Rep. Steven W.

Cappelli, a supporter of gun ownership, was filmed as he shot at targets at Tripoli’s and was asked about the perspective of people in this area when it comes to gun control.

WASHINGTON— Mayors Against Illegal Guns is led by the mayors of New York and Boston, but when the group wanted a spokesman for an ad campaign to change gun laws in Congress it turned Scott Knight, chief of police in small town Chaska, Minn.

"People tend to try to make this sort of a big-city issue," said John Feinblatt, the criminal justice coordinator for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. "But there's nobody more articulate than Chief Knight, who really speaks for small town America. Most members of law enforcement are in small towns. So he sort of speaks for America."
 

VA: Don't Undercut Second Amendment

Despite his native intelligence and long history of reasonableness, my friend Brent Holl’s impassioned plea to repeal the Second Amendment is rife with serious flaws ("Important Gun Solution," May 23).

The first error is in the assumption that gun owners do not need constitutional protections to own as many guns as they wish. The Framers, largely through their own experiences, knew that ALL our citizens need certain constitutional protections.

...

Brent claims that gun owners need not fear that guns will be confiscated. But, Hitler, Stalin, Amin and Duvalier proved that limiting gun ownership to a chosen band of thuggish enforcers protected unfettered terrorism and murder of their own citizenry.
 

Gun control and the Second Amendment

I have no personal stake in this matter. I don’t own a gun, I only hunt in times of famine, and I am not a member of the NRA.

It is my desire to know the truth, not debate.

...

There is neither confusion nor misinterpretation on my part about the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

Those who assume that the Second Amendment was only referring to the militia or the National Guard in the right to bear arms are in error.
 

NY: Bloomberg Cast as Enemy No. 1 of Gun Rights

In New York, Michael R. Bloomberg is known as the billionaire media mogul who became mayor. But in many parts of the country, he is the man who would take away your guns.

An editorial writer in Harrisburg, Pa., accuses him of “ranting” about illegal firearms. A conservative publication in Florida, NewsMax, asserts: “Bloomberg’s hatred of guns has twisted roots.” And on the Web site of The Wichita Eagle, one writer wonders why a New York mayor is “telling the people of Kansas what to do.”

Darren Glover thought he was going to make some easy money. Standing near the Winn-Dixie on Normandy Boulevard, the convicted felon was looking to sell a handgun and crack cocaine. Unbeknownst to him, the buyer he chose was a member of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit conducting a sting operation based on an anonymous tip.

The gun bounty program, a joint initiative that offers $1,000 rewards for such tips, has led to 67 arrests and 71 weapons confiscations since its inception Aug. 15, organizers said. The group effort involving First Coast Crime Stoppers, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce has paid out $51,000 to individuals whose tips led to gun possession arrests.

THE world's cheapest but most effective gun, the Russian designed AK47 assault rifle that sold for less than Shs200,000 five months ago, now goes for Shs800,000 to Shs1 million on the black market in Kampala and Karamoja. A bullet for the AK47, which previously went for Shs300, now goes for Shs1,500.

The army says the gun rackets are doing brisk business at Uganda's border points with Sudan and Kenya. "We have information that a gun costs between Shs800,000 and Shs1 million in illegal markets especially in areas around borders," the deputy 3rd division commander Lt. Col. Paul Lokech said.

According to the proposal on the use of rifles with pistol cartridges, the cartridges used would be allowed in the upcoming deer season, Nov. 17 through Dec. 2.

The cartridge rule continues the DNR's long-held position of allowing only short-to-medium range rifles to take deer. The DNR has received many requests to allowing some rifle cartridges for deer.

The rifle in question must fire a cartridge that meets the following criteria: fire a projectile (bullet) of .357 magnum or larger; have a minimum case length of 1.16 inches, and a maximum case length of 1.625 inches.

The unfortunate irony of two stories in yesterday's newspaper was hard to miss.

Page 3 of The Sunday Telegraph featured a piece highlighting the fears teachers at Crookwell High School have about the prospect of two 16-year-old students accused of planning a Virginia Tech-style massacre returning to class.

Just four pages later a headline screamed "All children need to learn how to shoot" above an account of plans by the NSW Shooters Party to lobby Parliament to introduce shooting lessons into the state's school curriculum.

A fight in west Huntsville between friends landed two men in the hospital.

The weapons used were anything but ordinary.

Pat Tordt got out of the hospital Saturday night and he's got serious cuts and bruises that clearly show he was involved.

It was a fight so intense, the weapons used were scattered some 30 yards down a street.

And a crime scene police don't come across everyday.

Whether it’s imposing the USA PATRIOT Act, or granting the president unilateral, unchecked power to declare U.S. citizens “enemy combatants”—denying them the due process guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment—watering down the Constitution in the name of protecting Americans against terrorism is fundamentally no different from eroding the Second Amendment in the name of saving people from gun violence.

Earlier this month, a colleague of mine was the victim of an attempted robbery. This legislator was taking a walk near his home when he was approached by two men one of which pulled a gun on him. Fortunately the gunmen did not harm him and were scared off by neighbors responding to my colleague's cries for help. My friend, who has previously voted against legislation allowing Ohioans to carry concealed weapons, was quoted in a major Ohio newspaper, "I've changed my mind. You need a way to protect yourself and your family. I don't want to hurt anyone. But I never again want to be in the position where I'm approached by someone with a gun and I don't have one."

Today's handgunners are blessed with an incredible array of choices, and frankly most are pretty darn good. The market is too competitive and shooters too well informed for inferior models to last long. With so many good guns available, what makes the XD special? It's a combination of a lot of things done right.

"By now, GUNS readers will have heard Washington DC's firearm ban has been overturned. The 2-1 decision in Parker v District of Columbia by a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling and affirmed the Second Amendment protects an individual right. That sounds like a big deal, a huge deal some say, and they may be proven right."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Our Founding Fathers were proud that Americans were trusted with arms because they knew that only when people are armed could they truly be thought of as free citizens. And that's where the circle closes. Those who want to deprive you of your right to keep and bear arms are intending to deprive you of your freedom, period. Like the criminals their policies encourage, these elitists know that it is always best to disarm victims before you enslave them. — Charley Reese
