Canada: Police confiscate guns from flooded town
Submitted by: Anonymous

Canada’s Royal Mounted Police exploited rising flood waters in the town of High River in Calgary as they seized firearms from the homes of evacuated residents. The floods were the result of extremely heavy rain.

On Thursday, according to the Calgary Herald, the RCMP confiscated a “substantial amount” of firearms under the pretext of controlling the weapons and storing them for safekeeping.

“We just want to make sure that all of those things are in a spot that we control, simply because of what they are,” said Sgt. Brian Topham told the newspaper.

Residents are outraged by the high-handed measure.

A criminal charge has been dismissed against a West Virginia middle school student who refused a teacher's order to remove a National Rifle Association T-shirt he wore to school.
Logan County Circuit Judge Eric O'Briant signed an order dismissing an obstruction charge Thursday against 14-year-old Jared Marcum stemming from an April 18 incident at Logan Middle School.
Marcum was charged after a police officer told him to stop talking, but the student didn't.
Marcum's attorney, Ben White, says Marcum was exercising his free speech rights and his support for the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.
 

Zimmerman’s attorney: What? Me worry?

When the GZ/TM incident first occurred I was left wondering if Zimmerman’s arrest was done to forestall a race riot since all the usual suspects showed up with their one-sided version of events. Guess which version of events they choose to believe having never witnessed the event or talked to anyone who actually saw it? Now that the trial is underway I am upset that taxpayer money is being spent on this circus. The prosecutor has to prove wanton and deliberate disregard for life. In other words, prove that GZ set out to kill Trayvon Martin. Their weak case at first hinged around accusing GZ of profiling. However when it was discovered that GZ was Hispanic and not lily-white as they first suspected they changed their tune a little.
 

Is online gun training OK? States split

The question about whether gun owners should prove they know how to handle a gun has been discussed to death. Some States require that everyone who purchases a gun take a training course or prove competency before buying one. Other States just require training for ccw permit holders. The States vary in the amount of training needed from minimal to more advanced. How can online learning satisfy all requirements, or any at all?
 

FL: Florida Governor signs gun control bill approved by the NRA but opposed by some gun owners

This is one of those times where a gun control bill has received both approval and disapproval from the gun community. In short, HB 1355 closes a loophole that has been used by people in the past to avoid being blocked from buying more guns. They would check themselves in and then right back out again from mental health facilities to avoid being reported to NICS. That cannot be good for the gun community but out of State groups say it will make some who need treatment, avoid seek it. A valid concern but unquantifiable at this point. What is even more surprising is that the NRA fully supported this bill and still it received opposition from pro gun rights groups.
 

Senators Ask if NSA Collected Gun Data -- Potential to construct gun database, senators say

Senators are questioning whether the National Security Agency collected bulk data on more than just Americans’ phone records, such as firearm and book purchases.

A bipartisan group of 26 senators, led by Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) asked Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to detail the scope and limits of the National Security Agency’s surveillance activities in a letter released Friday.

“We are concerned that by depending on secret interpretations of the PATRIOT Act that differed from an intuitive reading of the statute, this program essentially relied for years on a secret body of law,” the senators wrote in the letter.

As the trial of George Zimmerman enters its second week on Monday, it appears that the prosecution is struggling to meet the burden of proving him guilty of second-degree murder, legal analysts said.

The first week of the trial featured testimony from prosecution witnesses that in many instances bolstered Mr. Zimmerman’s argument of self-defense rather than the state’s case, the analysts said.

I was "reprimanded" recently because I left my front and back doors opened on some of these beautiful days we are having. I am wondering how things have gotten so turned around.

A man was charged recently for abusing children because he put them in a closet while waiting for the police to arrive. These children had broken into his property and were destroying it.

First is the “stand your ground” laws in many states, which say “that a person may justifiably use force in self-defense when there is reasonable belief of an unlawful threat, without an obligation to retreat first.” The second is the permit to carry a concealed weapon, and finally the gun control laws in this country where in Colorado a town of less than 1,000 people has passed a ordinance that would require heads of households to own a gun. I still can hear NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre saying “that the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
 

Zimmerman Prosecution Predictably Collapsing

The state of Florida’s politically driven decision to charge George Zimmerman with murder has resulted, as some of us predicted it would, in a pathetically weak case. It has taken only a few days of trial to collapse of its own weightlessness – undone, in fact, by the direct testimony of a prosecution witness, as Bryan Preston relates at the Tatler and Ed Morrissey details at Hot Air.

It’s always good to take a training class or watch a video that includes safety tips. He said there are some videos available on the National Rifle Association website or people can take handgun safety courses at Targetmaster, which has an indoor shooting range.

When purchasing a gun, a person should tell the store owner why he or she wants the gun such as self-defense or target shooting.

Guns should be securely stored if there are young children in the house.

“I wouldn’t worry about how many rounds the gun holds. If you can’t get the job done with the first couple of shots you probably can’t get it done.”

That quote was offered within earshot at a gun shop I occasionally frequent by the resident expert standing behind the counter.

At a press conference on March 20, 2012, Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump shared a phone interview he had recorded with a Miami girl named Rachel Jeantel.

Crump introduced the girl as “Dee Dee,” a 16-year-old so deep in “puppy love” with Trayvon Martin that she had been hospitalized upon hearing of his shooting death at the hands of George Zimmerman on Feb. 26, 2012.

Later, the larger group broke into smaller ‘action’ groups – Agenda 21, Obamacare and Second Amendment preservation. I was assigned to the latter group, and we began our activist training focusing on lobbying, educating and refuting. On the subject of refuting, we walked through the common objections to state nullification. (supremacy clause, neo-confederatism, racism, etc.) These folks – just introduced to the topic of nullification – were already brainstorming on how to spread their knowledge.
 

IL: Chicago-area towns rush to consider assault weapon bans

Firearm enthusiasts and gun control advocates are flocking to municipal board rooms across the suburbs as towns consider outlawing or regulating assault weapons — before a state law forever eliminates their authority to act.

Many local leaders see it as an issue of preserving local control and exercising their home rule authority. Gun advocates call it an infringement on Second Amendment rights and a hasty move that has not been prompted by a problem.

Highland Park and Melrose Park banned assault weapons after public hearings June 24, and several other Illinois municipalities are scrambling to consider similar measures. Gun discussions are scheduled Monday night in Lake Forest, Skokie and Wheeling.

NY: Arguments never so simple regarding 2nd Amendment

The “well-regulated militia” — an army of the common people — was the most popular idea for defense of the United States in the 18th century, and it was posed as an alternative to a standing army (which, according to the First Congress’ debate on arms and militia, many considered dangerous).

Yet, today, we have a standing army as our primary defense system, not a militia. This complicates the Second Amendment, as the original purpose for citizens keeping arms has been rendered moot.

Gun-control opponents are rallying at Legislative Hall against a measure that aims to require individuals found to be dangerously mentally ill to turn over their guns. The bill failed in the state Senate on Thursday, receiving just six yes votes, but many worry that it will be brought up for another vote today, the last day before the General Assembly session adjourns until January. Attorney General Beau Biden's office authored the bill. A spokesman for Biden did not deny the bill could come back for debate in the final hours of the legislative session.
 

Gun-Control-Determined Obama's CDC Power Trip

If ever there was an abuse of power, it's the president's commissioning of a trumped-up Centers for Disease Control study to validate his gun-control agenda.

See the study here. So much for CDC objectivity.

The study was commissioned in January as one of Obama's 23 executive orders to enact gun control. To get Congress to fund it with taxpayers' money, the CDC had to classify gun violence as "a contagious disease." It's all phony baloney, but after Sandy Hook, the general feeling in the corridors of the White House was that the end justifies the means. (Read Obama's complete plan to reduce gun violence.)
