Don't be surprised if you drive by Troy's Alparon Park on any given Tuesday or Thursday evening and see a group of young hunters locked, loaded and ready to fire. They're members of the Troy Youth Sportsmen Club's Pennsylvania Youth Hunter Education Challenge, and in the coming weeks, you're apt to see them practicing for an upcoming international competition.
 

For gun purchasers, should "no-fly" mean "no buy?"

People on the government's terrorist watch list tried to buy guns almost 1,000 times in the last five years, a federal study finds. In nine out of 10 cases, federal authorities let them do it, the report finds, because there was no legal way to stop them. And that appears to be OK with the gun lobby, which sounds less fired up by the suspicious gun purchases than by Congress' efforts to stop them.

State Senator Joe Griffo (R-I-C, Rome) today reaffirmed his strong opposition to a proposal by Governor Paterson and downstate politicians for stiff new restrictions on gun ownership, and applauded efforts by St. Lawrence County lawmakers to raise awareness among sportsmen to fight the wrong-headed plans. St. Lawrence County Legislators Joseph Lightfoot and Donald Peck have sponsored a Resolution before the county Board of Legislators that urges state lawmakers to reject the plan by Gov. Paterson that would require every one of the 16,700 legal handgun owners and dealers in St. Lawrence County to undergo repeat background checks every three to five years.
 

Never Go to the Police for ‘Help’…
Submitted by: Larry

After Akin drove to the police station, the teenager, who suffers from epilepsy, quite sensibly decided that it would be foolish to seek “help” from the police and walked away from the facility. No mention is made of the youngster being under arrest, so there was no reason at all for the police to pursue her as if she were a criminal.

Nonetheless, a call was sent out saying that a girl had “run off” from the station. Police Chief Roger Hatcher responded, tracking the teen down at nearby George Molinas Park. When he called to her, the young lady — perhaps recalling parental advice against accepting rides from creepy strangers — ran away.

Hatcher briefly gave pursuit on foot. But chasing down a fleet-footed teenager is hard. So Hatcher pulled out his Taser and shot the youngster in the head.

"My only caution is not to confuse interest in firearms with interest in protecting the right to keep and bear arms. I note Mr. Depp has not lent his name to the latter effort. Still, it's a good thing to have a famous person admit interest in shooting and teaching firearms handling to his children."

"Except Rick Hacker of Beverly Hills questions Depp's recollection..."

examiner.com — DC Gun Rights Examiner Mike Stollenwerk urges Sotomayor oponents to forget about latinas and white firemen and focus on what may be a silver bullet - "Sotomayor’s joining of the Sanchez-Villar opinion’s preemptive ambush on the Second amendment as a smoking gun example of her stealth activism against gun rights."
 

Obamacare attacked as unconstitutional invasion of privacy

Examiner.com: In my last column, "Under Obamacare, where will Canadians go for medical services?," I highlighted Gun Owners of America's (GOA's) opposition on privacy grounds to President Obama's obsession with nationalizing of health services in America. Noting that mainstream privacy experts are also alarmed at the Obama administration's "damn the torpedoes" attitude to impose statist policy mandates at whatever the cost to privacy, I called for an unholy alliance of gun owners and privacy advocates to take action to stop Obamacare now before it becomes a social and economic entanglement that would literally sink America as a great power and eliminate significant chunks of Americans' remaining privacy and freedom. . . .
 

Independence (?) Day and what "or else" means.

The sum of all our fears, I think, is this. For years, and for many of us all our lives, we have tried to get the collectivist enemies of our rights to liberty and property to understand that they had better leave us the hell alone, or else. And now, thanks to their arrogance, stupidity and tyrannical appetites, we are coming to the "or else."

The Founders must have experienced this moment, when their fear of opposing the mighty British Empire with all of the terrible winds of war that would be unleashed thereby vied in their minds and hearts with their desire, their demand, to be free of a tyranny that interfered incessantly in their lives and that would not leave them be.

A teenage girl shot while helping her father in their family's small furniture and appliance store died Saturday, becoming the fifth victim of a suspected serial killer terrorizing a small South Carolina community, authorities said.

Abby Tyler, 15, died about 11:15 a.m. at a Spartanburg hospital after fighting for her life for two days, Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said.
Tyler was wounded and her father was killed Thursday as they worked to close the Tyler Home Center near downtown Gaffney.

County Sheriff Bill Blanton said investigators believe the killings are linked and the search is on for a suspected male serial killer. ...

The spree had alarmed residents canceling Independence Day holiday plans and arming themselves.

Deputies say 38-year-old Luke Sanchez, a former Marine who served as a military policeman, was driving back to his farm in Belen when he spotted Gabaldon and another suspect stealing supplies from Enchantment Propane.

They say Sanchez called police, but also drove closer to the suspects to try to get their license plate number.

Deputies say he got too close-- Gabaldon spotted him, ran over to his car and broke the driver's side window.

David Dawson is close friends with Sanchez, and says he was just defending himself.

"They were bashing his windows in and he was screaming for them to leave him alone," Dawson said.

After a short fight, deputies say Sanchez pulled out his gun and shot Gabaldon in the head, killing him.

The Arizona Senate passed three important self-defense bills in a session that lasted into the early morning hours Wednesday. First, SB 1113 enables law-abiding Right-to-Carry permit holders to carry firearms for self-defense in restaurants. This NRA-backed bill passed by an overwhelming, bi-partisan majority of 19-8 and will now be sent to Governor Jan Brewer’s (R) desk for her consideration.

Last Sunday, DuPage County Chairman Bob Schillerstrom announced he was entering the race to be IL GOP's 2010 gubernatorial nominee. This week, we learned more about his views on social issues from a conversation with Springfield Journal-Register's Bernie Schoenberg. Schoenberg says Schillerstrom's public policy on abortion is "pro-choice," although he's for parental notification for minor girls:

...

And he's against a concealed carry law in Illinois, one of two states in the nation that don't allow concealed carry:

He also has said he supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms, but “I would be opposed to concealed carry,” which would allow regular citizens in Illinois the right to carry concealed guns

Erin Pizzey is a genial woman with snow-white hair, cherubic cheeks, and an easy smile. It wasn't always that way. The daughter of an English diplomat, she founded the world's first shelter for battered women in 1971. To her surprise, she discovered that most of the women in her shelter were as violent as the men they had left.

When Pizzey wrote a book revealing this sordid truth, she encountered a firestorm of protest. "Abusive telephone calls to my home, death threats, and bomb scares, became a way of living for me and for my family. Finally, the bomb squad asked me to have all my mail delivered to their head quarters," she would later reveal.

The Second Amendment, which guarantees citizens the right to bear arms, is apparently not settled law in Sotomayor's mind. Last year, the Supreme Court ruled that Second Amendment rights apply to individual citizens in their private lives. Since that decision, the issue whether the Second Amendment applies to the states has surfaced. If the court finds it doesn't apply to states, then individual states could take away gun owner's rights. Sotomayor is one of only three federal appellate judges to issue a court opinion saying the Second Amendment does NOT apply to states. Gun owners, beware of Judge Sotomayor.

Kansas Attorney General Steve Six (D) today announced that the State of Kansas will now recognize non-resident Right-to-Carry permits issued by any of the 22 states already recognized.

“NRA has maintained for years that language in the Kansas statute indicates that non-resident Right-to-Carry permits should be recognized,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox. “This decision is a victory for gun owners as it Right-to-Carry laws and provides permit holders additional freedoms in Kansas to protect themselves and their families.”
 

Fear over Obama’s gun laws sparks massive rush to pack a pistol

Last summer, the National Rifle Association ran adverts claiming that Barack Obama would “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns” if elected. The campaign didn’t do much for John McCain, but in every other respect it has been wildly successful: NRA membership is up 30% and gun control has disappeared from the administration’s list of priorities.

Americans have gone on an extraordinary gun-buying spree. The best available measure of over-the-counter sales is the number of requests for background checks filed with the FBI. From November to February, there were 5.5 million, up almost a third, year on year. Although May’s figures were the weakest since the boom began, gun shops were still selling 15% more weapons than in 2008.

Texas' former Solicitor General Ted Cruz, told the crowd that America is "facing the single greatest threat to our liberty that we've ever seen. I believe that President Obama was elected because we failed to lead. But I also believe that his greatest legacy as president will be that he inspired a new generation of conservatives to rise up and defend our liberty."

Cruz is running for state attorney general.

"I like to think of Texas as America on steroids," Cruz said. "It is a spirit that says 'give me a horse, a gun and an open plain and I can conquer the world.'"

In Olympia, Wash., about 1,500 turned out for a rally on the Capitol campus.
 

Founders warned against trust

Why did the founders of our nation give us the Bill of Rights?

The answer is easy. They knew Congress could not be trusted with our God-given rights.

Think about it. Why in the world would they have written the First Amendment prohibiting Congress from enacting any law that abridges freedom of speech and the press? The answer is that in the absence of such a limitation, Congress would abridge free speech and free press. That same distrust of Congress explains the other amendments found in our Bill of Rights protecting rights such as our rights to property, fair trial and to bear arms. The Bill of Rights should serve as a constant reminder of the deep distrust our founders had of government.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The provision in the Constitution granting the right to all persons to bear arms is a limitation upon the power of the Legislature to enact any law to the contrary. The exercise of a right guaranteed by the Constitution cannot be made subject to the will of the sheriff. [People vs. Zerillo, 219 Mich. 635, 189 N.W. 927, at 928 (1922)]
