"The founder of the Second Amendment Foundation today said he will supply Brady Campaign President Paul Helmke with documentation on the 'text book case' from Missouri that helped convince that state's legislature to pass a 'Stand-Your-Ground' law to protect citizens from criminal or civil prosecution when they shoot in self- defense."

"... Helmke told MSNBC viewers that he has been unable to identify anybody who has ever been sued and suffered financially for shooting in self-defense."

"'Helmke is sadly uninformed, and we're going to educate him,' Gottlieb said. 'The case of a Carroll County man who was charged ... for shooting a burglar and subsequently acquitted, but then was sued almost immediately in civil court for $250,000 ...'" ...

"I recently visited Chicago, where I met with the Reverend Jesse Jackson. On Saturday, I appeared at a series of events sponsored by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition calling for common-sense steps to end gun violence."

"Hundreds of marchers, led by Rev. Jackson, converged on a suburban Chicago gun shop which has supplied hundreds of guns that were traced to crimes. We know from national data that most Federally-licensed gun dealers never sell even a single gun that’s used to commit a crime. When stores like Suburban Sporting Goods Ammo and Guns in Melrose Park, Illinois channel hundreds of crime guns into a community – 712 in a single four-year period – one has to question those business practices ..." ...

"At about 6:45, two men kicked in the door at Altieri's townhouse ... Instead of an empty home, however, the intruders came face to face with Altieri - holding a cellphone and a rifle."

"'... they started kicking the door in. So I got my cellphone and went into my bedroom and loaded my rifle.."

"... The intruders walked in on Altieri kneeling with his rifle trained on them and the cellphone at his ear."

"'They saw me and started stuttering,' Altieri said. 'I said, 'One more step and you're done.'" ...

"A 15-year-old Hammond High School student yesterday pleaded 'involved' -- the equivalent of guilty for a juvenile -- to bringing an unloaded gun and ammunition to the school last month."

"At a hearing in Howard County Juvenile Court, Master William V. Tucker released the youth from the Alfred D. Noyes Children's Center in Rockville and placed him on home detention until sentencing, which is scheduled for August."

"House Democrats are 'one vote away' from repealing an appropriations amendment that restricts local law enforcement's ability to access federal gun trace data."

"Second Amendment supporters say the amendment protects police investigations and prevents anti-gun groups from using gun trace data in 'frivolous' civil lawsuits against the firearms industry."

"But the opponents of the amendment argue that the restrictions tie investigators' hands. They say the gun-trace data is an essential crime-fighting tool that should be made available to police."

"Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) declared Tuesday that opponents of the Tiahrt Amendment are only one vote short of preventing the measure's inclusion in the 2008 appropriations ..." ...

"Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined members of the local congressional delegation and mayors, lawmakers and law enforcement officers from around the country yesterday to blast federal legislation limiting police use of federal gun traces."

"Bloomberg and others spoke out against the Tiahrt Amendment, a rider on the Justice Department appropriations bill since 2003 that bars police from using ownership traces by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for far-reaching investigations."

"Instead, police can use the traces only for a specific criminal investigation. And under a new version of the amendment passed by the Senate Appropriations Committee, cops who use the traces for other purposes would now face jail." ...

"Mayor Michael Bloomberg may seem like he's obsessed with congestion pricing, but he's just as committed to getting illegal guns off the street. So much so, he was in Washington on Tuesday trying to force the passage of pro-cop gun legislation."

"Bloomberg's anti-gun crusade has won him a lot of powerful enemies -- like the National Rifle Association for example, but he doesn't care. He's in Washington to stop what he thinks is another bad gun bill."

"'The Tiahrt amendment is the most anti-cop, soft-on-crime law, Congress has passed in years,' Bloomberg said." ...

"'When I talk to my law enforcement, they're worried about the same kinds of problems outlined in today's paper, the New York Post, that Mayor Bloomberg talked about, where his two police officers were gunned down simply by pulling over a car that was being stopped for a routine traffic violation,' the Rhode Island Democrat said, standing next to Bloomberg." ...

The National Fraternal Order of Police, the [BATFE], the Department of Justice and the Southern States Police Benevolent Association support this provision."

"Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and a coalition of politicians and political appointees oppose it."

"Now is the time for Speaker Nancy Pelosi to deliver on her pledge to reverse the gun lobby’s pernicious handcuffing of law enforcement officials trying to track the flood of illegal firearms."

"For years, police used the federal government’s extensive gun data files to trace firearms used in crimes from manufacture to retail purchase, laying bare the minority of unscrupulous dealers who abet the underworld. But four years ago, police access to the databank was cut off by the politically potent gun lobby’s many panderers in Congress." ...

"The Illinois House is poised to hand Gov. Rod Blagojevich another setback, this time over the issue of gun control."

"In the midst of a lengthy impasse over the state budget, Blagojevich has called on lawmakers to ban the sale, purchase and possession of gun clips that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition."

"But observers on both sides of the divisive issue say there are simply not enough votes to get the measure passed."

"Of the 60 votes needed for approval, gun control advocates and gun rights groups agree there are only about 50 solid 'yes' votes. Not even the bill’s sponsor thinks it has enough support." ...

"Do mayors who're allied with Mike Bloomberg's anti-gun campaign have something to hide?"

"A California attorney named Chuck Michel, who's done lots of work for gun owners in the state, decided he wanted to see what's going on with the California mayors who've signed on to Bloomberg's gun-grabbing group. So he submitted Freedom of Information Act requests to their offices, seeking documents and communications between the left-coast mayors and Bloomberg."

"Here's what some of the California mayors had to say."

"The mayor of Sunnyvale says it's the first Freedom of Information Act request he's ever received, and that it has 'disrupted the distribution of services to the community.' ..." ...

"The majority view in Mississippi on the issue of gun control remains that it means hitting the target at which one is aiming the weapon."

"As a gun owner, hunter and one who regards the Second Amendment as a necessary safeguard of both democracy and the defense of one's home and hearth, I tend to be skeptical of most efforts to institute governmental controls over the right to keep and bear arms."

"But my career in journalism has taught me on countless occasions that in far too many cases, the wrong person - the emotionally disturbed, the mentally ill, the chemically dependent or the psychopath - ends up in possession of a firearm at great peril to innocent, law-abiding citizens." ...

"There were already 200 murders this year in Philadelphia before the end of June. Most of the victims were youngsters and most were dead from gunshot wounds."

"There are at least eight pieces of legislation before Philadelphia City Council that would bring stricter gun laws here. They would certainly pass if the state Legislature would give Council the authority to enact the laws." ...

Submitter's Note: I would actually like to see this in court, where the City Council can present the scientific evidence that their proposed laws will reduce crime.

"I am writing this in regard to the June 20 letter to the editor submitted by State Reps. Brandon Phelps and John Bradley. In their letter they wrote of how, with the help of Southern Illinois Republican Senators, they were able to hold hostage the budget until something was done about the electric rate crisis. I commend them for their efforts, but why stop there?"

"If they are truly committed to defend our Second Amendment rights, as they stated, then it is time they used this same tactic in getting a right-to-carry law passed in Illinois. ..."

"I hope next year at this time Reps. Phelps and Bradley will be holding the budget hostage once more until a right-to-carry law is passed, but I won't be holding my breath." ...

"America's favorite summertime sports have long been played on trails, waters, fields, courses and courts."

"And, now we know, they're played on shooting ranges, too."

"Statistics gathered over the past three years show that target shooting -- with rifle, handgun and shotgun -- is actually more popular than many pastimes historically considered mainstays of warm-season recreation."

"In fact, participation in shooting sports tops tennis, softball, jet skiing, water skiing, mountain biking, most team sports and virtually all of the seasonal technical sports like rock climbing and kayaking, according to the most recent numbers from ... a consumer research firm for the sporting goods, fitness and health club industries." ...
