NY: Tarantino : Micro-stamping bill 'seems to miss the mark'

Legislation Assembly Democrats passed recently that would require all new semiautomatic handguns sold in New York state to be micro-stamped “seems to miss the mark,” Democratic state Assembly candidate Dennis Tarantino said in a press release issued Friday. Tarantino said the cost of complying with the bill would be an economic hardship, and that it is doubtful the bill, as drafted, would “guarantee public safety.” The legislation would require all new semiautomatic handguns sold in New York state to be micro-stamped with a unique code that is transferred to shell casings when the gun is fired.

George Soros is financing the fight to give the United Nations control of your guns.

Through his Media Matters organization, Soros is dumping pro-UN gun control propaganda into the mainstream media to coincide with the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty being held in New York July 2–27.

In a blog post published on July 3, Timothy Johnson of Media Matters describes the notion that the United Nations would ever try to take away the right of Americans to keep and bear arms “laughable.”
 

NY: Couple handcuffed, jailed for dancing on subway platform: lawsuit

First smoking, then soda — now there’s no dancing in New York City.
Caroline Stern, 55, and her boyfriend George Hess, 54, claim they were handcuffed for having happy feet on the platform of the Columbus Circle subway station — and spent 23 hours in custody as a result. ...
When Hess began trying to film the encounter, things got ugly, Stern said.
“We brought out the camera, and that’s when they called backup,” she said. “That’s when eight ninja cops came from out of nowhere.”
Hess was allegedly tackled to the platform floor, and cuffs were slapped on both of them.

Submitter's comment: NYPD won't be happy until every individual in the city resents them. Then they'll wonder why no one wants to cooperate with them.

In the first public accounting of its kind, cellphone carriers reported that they responded to a daunting 1.3 million demands for subscriber data last year from law enforcement agencies seeking text messages, caller locations and other information in the course of investigations.
The data, which comes in response to a congressional inquiry, documents an explosion in cellphone surveillance in the last five years, with the wireless carriers turning over records thousands of times a day in response to police emergencies, court orders, law enforcement subpoenas and other requests.

But in making an appeal for more funds, Mark O’Mara, Mr. Zimmerman's attorney, suggested on Friday that many Americans have given because they feel “this case is an affront to their constitutional rights,” namely the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.

'Tis the season for Halls of Fame, Walls of Shame, call them what you will. From Vestal High to Darrell I, the bleat goes on. Herewith, then, a proposal for a new wall/hall — you name it — to honor 17 Democratic U.S. members of Congress who have demonstrated that they would rather cave than brave the ire of the National Rifle Association. The Dems had a choice: They could join their Republican colleagues in endorsing House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa's demand to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, or remember who or what it was they were sent to Washington to represent. They took the easy, craven way out.

... Today many of the pilots at Holloman never get off the ground. The base has been converted into the U.S. Air Force’s primary training center for drone operators, where pilots spend their days in sand-colored trailers near a runway from which their planes take off without them. Inside each trailer, a pilot flies his plane from a padded chair, using a joystick and throttle, as his partner, the “sensor operator,” focuses on the grainy images moving across a video screen, directing missiles to their targets with a laser. ...
“Wait, you guys practice tracking enemies by using civilian cars?” a reporter asked. One Air Force officer responded that this was only a training mission, and then the group was quickly hustled out of the room.

Remembering the Mexican victims of ‘Fast and Furious'

The American people finally have heard of Brian Terry. He is the best-known victim of “Fast and Furious,” the Obama administration’s de facto conventional-weapons proliferation program. Between November 2009 and January 2011, Team Obama arranged for licensed firearms dealers to sell guns to straw buyers, who transferred them to known violent criminals in Mexico. Among these firearms, two AK-47s were found near Rio Rico, Ariz., where suspected smugglers fatally shot Terry, a 40-year-old former Marine, on Dec. 15, 2010.

While Terry epitomizes those whom Fast and Furious has harmed, he is not its sole casualty.

The “Fast and Furious” operation troubles me on two levels. First, our government willingly put thousands of guns into the hands of violent drug gangs — and could not predict the outcome. Second, and perhaps more troubling, our government named the operation after dated and dreadful Vin Diesel action movies.

Perhaps Holder can have his folks give loaded guns to six-year-olds and see what happens. They could call it “Potty Trained and Curious.”

Roughly $7,600 was paid to those turning in the guns, the money coming from donations from residents and businesses, including $10,000 from funds forfeited to the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office, officials said.

For weeks, gun-safety instructor Dave Dieball has been receiving requests for training on Tasers, the stun-gun devices that will become available to trained Michiganders in early August under a new law.

The Oceola Township resident has already been certified as a Taser instructor, and will soon begin classes.

Tasers — previously only legal in Michigan for law enforcement — temporarily disable assailants by shooting barbs. The barbs then convey an electrical jolt to attackers.

The National Rifle Association wants Tennessee legislative candidates to declare whether they will back Republican leaders or the NRA next year if that's what it takes to put a controversial guns-in-parking lots bill up for a full vote.

In a gun-issues survey sent to Republican and Democratic candidates, the NRA devotes two of 27 questions to the Safe Commute Act, which cleared most committees but never came up for House and Senate floor votes this year.

Clark Aposhian, chairman of the Utah Shooting Sports Council, and other gun enthusiasts are worried that the fire crisis will lead to a crackdown on firearms ("Don’t single us out, say some Utah shooters," Tribune, July 4).

First, the holy Second Amendment guarantees "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms" for "the security of a free State," not for the pleasure of target shooting, which in tinder-dry conditions threatens the security of our Beehive State.

Fields is the latest local example of the growing defense training industry — which includes situational awareness, target practice and even simulated gunfights — often taught by military veterans or former police.

The simulated gunfights are accomplished using training ammunition — non-lethal rounds with a capsule of paint in place of a lead bullet. Often called by a manufacturer’s brand name — Simunitions — the training ammo became available for civilian use about a year and a half ago after years of military and police use.

Pennsylvania's heritage of religious freedom goes all the way back to William Penn. Pennsylvania's independent spirit, strong work ethic and unswerving commitment to the right to keep and bear arms are well documented. Pennsylvania's tremendous natural resources, including coal, natural gas, oil and timber, hold the key to future economic prosperity.

The citizens of our state remember our better days and see our hope for their return increasingly threatened as Mr. Obama directly or indirectly threatens the foundations of that future. The political ground is shifting across the commonwealth. Once a sure win for the Obama campaign, Pennsylvania may now be what Florida was in 2000, 2004 and 2008: a "must win" for both sides.

I take exception to your headline, “Dodge City Beckons.” In Dodge City, the law-abiding citizens were armed and could defend themselves — so causing trouble could get you shot.

While there were surely bad guys around, most of the legend is due to dime novels, in which everyone was shooting up the place.

But as in the 40 or so “shall issue” carry-permit states, more legal guns means less crime.

A political fight that will undoubtedly tug at the heartstrings of gun-lovers and haters throughout Clark County is about to erupt over plans for a new store on the Las Vegas Strip.

Against the wishes of attorneys for the Venetian and Wynn resorts, operators of the Shoppes at Palazzo mall obtained a use permit for a Beretta gun store and shooting range from the Clark County Planning Commission.

The Palazzo adjoins the Venetian. General Growth Properties, not the Venetian, operates both the malls inside the Palazzo and the Venetian. The Beretta store would occupy about 19,000 square feet of the Shoppes.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power." [Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)]
