NY: Guns at Church, Guns Everywhere

Because it has more than 280 million guns in civilian hands, the United States is the most deadly industrialized country on the planet. The National Rifle Association and its disciples try to normalize abnormal behavior by encouraging open display of weapons. They would fundamentally change the culture of churches and parks where people congregate for peace and contemplation. Americans must wake up to the gun lobby’s deadly agenda of any gun, anywhere, anytime. Ignoring the seemingly far-fetched idea of armed citizens everywhere could be a deadly mistake.

This is the kind of authoritarian mentality that leads to 'terror watch list' gun bans, to prior restraints, and to 'no rights' lists where suspicion trumps all."

Do Police Always Lie, Or Does It Just Seem That Way?

Maryland resident Shawn M. Leake was enjoying an evening drive near Hyattsville on May 25, 2008 when he caught the unwelcome sight of a police car behind him, its running lights on.

When he pulled over he was accosted by Prince George’s County Police Corporal Steven Jackson, who told him that he was following up on “inquiries” about Leake’s auto insurance. Jackson later claimed that he stopped Leake because the windows of his Cadillac were tinted.

Much about the ensuing conversation, which was captured by Jackson’s dashboard camera, remains unclear. A few minutes into the stop, after Jackson’s backup arrived, the corporal ordered Leake from the car. Puzzled and wary, Leake hesitated, asking why this would be necessary.

“Step out of the car now, or I’ll have you out of the car,” exclaimed Jackson.

There is a little-noticed war crimes tribunal going on right now in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I am working on a section of Absolved with a Cambodian character and found this in my research.

I have also been reading Nuremberg by Joseph Persico when I turn in at night. There is an interesting pont, a parallel if you will, between Hitler and Obama that Persico mentions in Chapter 38 about Wilhelm Frick, the Third Reich's Interior Minister:

"Frick's proudest achievement had been to make Hitler a German. Hitler had renounced his Austrian citizenship to pursue his political star in Germany. . He finally managed to have Hitler named a councilor for the state of Braunschweig. Less than a year later, Hitler became Germany's chancellor. "

Go, read the rest, and the court documents attached. Kwan's reputation, his fortune, his military career and his faith in the US system of justice have all been destroyed. At last report, the naturalized US citizen who was born in Hong Kong is working in China translating for US-based Christian mission organizations, preserving his little remaining assets by living for a quarter what it costs over here and reportedly sleeping easier in the PRC dictatorship than he does these days when he's in the states. He tells a friend that at least in China, you have to DO something to bring the coercive power of the state down on you. Here, you get it thanks to a hungry US prosecutor's fishing-expedition whim.

Terrified residents canceled Fourth of July plans and holed up in their homes Friday as investigators hunted a serial killer believed to have shot four people to death. ...

Plenty of evidence links the killings, though officials have not yet determined how the victims are connected or if they knew whoever shot them, said Cherokee County Sheriff Bill Blanton.
Residents have "their guard up and their gun handy," said state Sen. Harvey Peeler, R-Gaffney ...

The sheriff reminded people they have a right to protect themselves and advised salesmen and others to avoid knocking on strangers' doors with so many on heightened alert.

Thomas Rashawn Monroe, 23, who lives in the apartment, has been charged with the shooting. He remained in the Durham County jail Friday in lieu of $250,000 bail.

Monroe's relatives said Friday that police did not identify themselves when they arrived and that, for all the people in the apartment knew, whoever had been shooting earlier was outside the door.

Cynthia Bridges, 47, said she was preparing for work when she heard the first shots. She dropped to the floor and dialed 911. Her sons, ages 23 and 24, 29-year-old daughter and 4-year-old granddaughter were asleep, she said.

More shots can be heard on the 911 call as Bridges frantically speaks to an emergency dispatcher.

A 49-year-old Edison Park woman taken into custody Thursday following the stabbing death of her boyfriend in her condominium was released Friday without being charged, said an officer with the Police Department's Office of News Affairs.

Officer Michael Fitzpatrick said Friday afternoon that he would leave a determination of self-defense up to the Cook County State's Attorney's Office.

The woman, who lives on the 6400 block of West Touhy Avenue, was brought to Grand Central Area (5) headquarters early Thursday.

Fitzpatrick wasn't sure whether she was let go late yesterday or earlier today.

There are other ways for defenders to suffer that they have no control over: heartless comments from people who think an internet connection and a computer equals an opportunity for 15 milliseconds of fame.
There are armchair detectives implying the grandfather was guilty of malfeasance, or some sort of cover-up or other involvement:

MN: Senators risk seats with Sotomayor approval

If there ever was any doubt about where President Barack Obama stands on the issue of America’s gun rights, his selection of Sonia Sotomayor as his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court should make that stance quite clear.

Obama has claimed he “believes the Second Amendment creates an individual right” and “respects the constitutional rights of American’s to bear arms.” But that’s hard to believe, given that he must be aware of Sotomayor’s ultraliberal track record on gun rights.

In 2004, Sotomayor joined with two other judges to declare that “”the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.”

Some attribute this quotation to George Washington. It doesn't matter who first said it. It is a truth. The Second Amendment is only behind the freedom of speech itself.

Have a meaningful, heartfelt celebration of the 4th of July!

Some Christians might have trouble reconciling Jesus and guns. As a service to them on this Fourth of July, I offer these Second Amendment Bible Stories.

# Jesus cleanses the temple. Jesus went into Jerusalem and was astonished and dismayed to find money-changers and merchants selling livestock and doves on the grounds of the main temple. Naturally, this upset Jesus, who knew that a temple "is supposed to be a house of prayer for all nations." But, he told all those defiling the temple, "You have turned it into a den of thieves."

And so, Jesus pulled his semiautomatic 9mm and drove the money-changers and dove sellers from the temple. "Remember," he shouted after them, "church is a place for prayer and pistols!"
 

FL: Upstart Rubio's Senate run bucks GOP etiquette

But today, Rubio is running what amounts to a right-wing insurgent campaign for the U.S. Senate — shut out by the state and national GOP apparatus and snubbed by most of the party's biggest givers.

His crime: challenging Gov. Charlie Crist, the anointed heir apparent to the seat being vacated by Mel Martinez, R-Fla.

So Rubio has taken his campaign underground.

Hoping to capitalize on a wave of anti-Washington animus over Crist's support of Democratic President Barack Obama's economic bailout and cap-and-trade proposals, Rubio has courted conservative bloggers and advocacy groups battling for the discombobulated core of the party.

We led the world in nearly everything: independence, liberty, freedom, industry, wealth. We rose beyond the stain of slavery and Jim Crow laws. We embraced all nationalities of legal immigrants with remarkable smoothness and out of many, became one.

...

Some feel this persistent destruction of America is intentional. Whether or not you concur, the one thing you must agree is that the Nancy Pelosis and the Harry Reids of our government loath and despite everything Thomas Jefferson and John Adams ever stood for. That's because our Founding Fathers "remov[ed] the shackles from the people and plac[ed] them on the government," to quote Joseph Farah. Government hates that.

Iranian citizens have taken to the streets of their cities in the pursuit of freedom and liberty. They sought, and deserved, their own revolution. The Iranian government murdered and persecuted them for it. Our government voted present.

Manuel Zelaya attempted to trample the Honduran Constitution and follow in the footsteps of his communist brother: Hugo Chavez. In the face of such tyranny, the Honduran people rose up in a revolution of their own and sent their King George packing. Within hours, the same US government that dared not meddle in the affairs of the Iranians, sponsored a United Nations Resolution condemning the Honduran people for resisting the spread of communism.

I don't live in metro but have visited their parks on several occasions.

What will the parks and rec dept . do?

Set up metal detectors at each park entrance to search for guns?

Let them, the city council, pass any ordinance they want, the second amendment of the United States Constitution super cedes any local law in America.

I will continue to carry my gun as I see fit.

I would rather carry and face a jury of 12 than have gun control.

Tomorrow, Saturday, July 4, we celebrate American independence! During this time I hope that Americans will take a few minutes to reflect on how we gained our independence … while so many, to this
very day, are still unable to achieve liberty.

The fact is, we can thank our success on one thing — the individual right to bear arms. If it were not for the firearms owned by private citizens in the late 1700s, the British would have easily defeated us.

Yet so many today are willing to give up this basic right in the hope that government will be there to protect them and will never become oppressive.

This government judge proposes outlawing linking without prior permission, to destroy Google news and other aggregators that necessarily have no government-approved gatekeepers, and all unapproved web media. In particular, Posner–a crazed IPnik (for the libertarian view, see here and here) as well–also wants to protect government’s beloved newspapers, as if any young person would then pick up one of these expensive, hand-staining pieces of federal propaganda. So what would happen if Posner got his way (impossible, I guess, given all the great hackers, etc.)? We’d all link to foreign sites only, which would then cover US goings-on even more fully, because they would want the traffic. The Washington Post, the New York Times, and all the rest of the CIA’s house organs would continue to decline until they are bailed out by some Obama stimulus, thus making clear what has long been the case, that they serve the state.

If you don’t quite get that for many in this country that the connection between guns and God is as American as burgers and fries, baseball and beer, and July 4th and fireworks, you should have been at the New Bethel Church in Louisville, Kentucky, on Saturday, June 27, where Pastor Ken Pagano welcomed more than 200 people – most of them packing guns (albeit unloaded) -- to an event called the “Open Carry Celebration.”

According to the New Bethel Church website, the “Open Carry Celebration” was held on a Saturday instead of a Sunday, so that it was clear that it was “not a church worship service, where the focus is on Jesus and our responsibility to Him. Rather,” Pagano, ...
