... "The Second Amendment Foundation and Baltimore County resident Raymond Woollard filed a lawsuit in late July in U.S. District Court in Baltimore challenging Marylandís restrictive open-carry gun law."

"'Imagine a world in which you had to go to the government and show a good and substantial reason to exercise your constitutional rights,' said one of Woollard's lawyers. ..." ...

"According to Seattle Gun Rights Examiner Dave Workman, the SAF filed the suit on behalf of Woollard after his gun permit renewal was denied because he could not demonstrate 'a reasonable precaution against apprehended danger.'"

"Woollard's story demonstrates how dangerously spurious and downright silly this arbitrary denial is." ...

Last call for this Saturday's armed, peaceable rallies in Greensboro, NC and Capitan, NM. Details at the link.

“We want to remind Americans that they have a basic human right to keep and bear arms – both for self-defense and to preserve individual freedom – that is not only enshrined in the Bill of Rights, but is protected only by Americans’ willingness to actually exercise that right. Just as is true with free speech, freedom of assembly, and every other right guaranteed by the Constitution – if you don’t insist on your Constitutional freedoms by exercising them in public, you will lose them.”

"Negligent discharge is not only bad for the person who politically shoots herself in the foot - as in the case of anti-gun liberals who carry concealed weapons - it is also a danger to the community."

"I don't know if you noticed this or not this week, but several sites are reporting that conservative hosts and businesspeople are carrying concealed handguns. FOX News' Roger Ailes is reported to carry a concealed handgun in New York. Sean Hannity is reported to carry, too."

"Yeah, so?"

"Other sources are reporting that leftist dupes are carrying handguns, too."

"This shows two things: first, how the left rats out people for reasonable actions as if the actions were unreasonable ..." ...
 

Should wolves be removed from Endangered Species list?

"In the wake of a ruling last week by federal Judge Donald Molloy that reinstated the gray wolf to the Endangered Species List in Montana and Idaho, there was surprisingly little attention paid to a very simple bill introduced July 30 by Congressman Chet Edwards (D-TX) to remove the gray wolf from protection of the Endangered Species Act (ESA)."

"Wolf predation on game animals – specifically elk and deer – is a big issue among hunters, as is evident from threads on two major forums, Hunting-Washington and Northwest Firearms. Wolf protection is the subject of a lively discussion ... on the Northwest Hikers forum. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) recently called on Congress to reform the ESA." ...

"Regularly seen with a GLOCK pistol at his side, fans of Keith Warren may have thought that the gun manufacturer was already the official handgun of the 'The High Road with Keith Warren.'"

"However, GLOCK and Keith Warren are pleased to announce that the two have officially joined forces to promote gun safety and hunting with GLOCK pistols on Warren's television show."

"To celebrate the agreement, the official 'GLOCK, Inc.' and 'Keith Warren' Facebook fan pages are giving away each other’s promotional items each day from Aug. 23-27. Details of the daily giveaways will be announced on the Facebook fan pages each morning of the promotion." ...

"Every day, about one percent of the population of the US holsters a gun and goes about their day. They visit the grocery store, they buy car parts, they may even be allowed to carry their sidearms while at work. They cause no problems and conduct themselves in a lawful manner. The paucity of news items about legal gun owners getting arrested for firearms infractions proves the veracity of the statement. They cannot, however, carry their weapons into any federal building, or portion of a private building leased by a federal agency. All that space and all that human activity is off limits to legal carry. Recent court cases have underscored that the second amendment applies to all Americans, wherever they live ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Note: if an attacker is within range of a palm strike, you pretty much have to strike them with your palm. You need space/time to draw a gun, aim and fire (even if you fire from the hip). With this move, you can strike, back up and draw. Or run.

"Buying a gun in most States is as easy as buying a box of cigarettes. They both kill and are extremely cheap. I've heard the rhetoric that 'guns don't kill, people do'. Well this is true, they just do it with guns. Clutching a wad of cash and a drivers license I can make a trip to my local gun store and buy enough weapons to invade a small country….."

"Gun ownership is a part of the American Way. A holdover from frontier days when having a gun was as necessary as owning an axe or a hammer. Dinner in colonial days was usually something with a bullet hole in it." ...

Sadly, homeowners and renters across the country are feeling the same fear, and many are taking proactive measures to defend their lives, loved ones, and property. They have come to realize that with police response times increasing, even a 911 call may serve little purpose ..."

"Many are buying or considering buying guns for self protection, even some who had previously rejected the idea.

"Freedom is not free; however, the natural right of self-defense was given to us by God and will not be stolen from us with legislation."
"If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege.
~ Arkansas Supreme Court, 1878"
"The danger has passed, but the 'Arizona Fugitives' scare yesterday in Gentry, Arkansas underscores the human need for instant self-defense at all times. The American right to bear arms in this country should always be free, and never taxed (as it is in Arkansas)." ...

"The three men and nine women on the Oakland County Circuit Court jury have twice sent out notes to Judge Leo Bowman in the last two days, saying they were hung. Bowman has sent them back to deliberate each time. ..."

"Why on earth would any parent in their right mind keep a firearm in the home?!"

"1) It's a Constitutional right"

"2) Hunting, sport, etc."

"3) protection of self, family & home"

"I am going to be brutally honest in the next few articles. We have firearms in our home for all of the above reasons. There is nothing to fear about a gun in your home."

"As long as you are properly trained. And you properly train your children."

"A firearm is nothing more than an inanimate object when just lying there. No more harmful than a parked car. The person operating the object has control over what it does." ...

"let's jump in with both feet on the firearm topic. The first question is the most common, and I have answered it many times. While it is easier to have a face to face conversation, I will do my best."

"Why own a gun? People are usually perfectly happy with the reply of, 'hunting.' Other than being a lie, which I refuse to do, why pacify somebody about something you strongly believe in?"

"Why do you have a house alarm? Why do you lock your doors at night? Why do you tell your children not to talk to strangers?! There is a dangerous world right outside your door, and some people won't even stop there!" ...

"The recent Crossroads of the West Gun Show in Reno was essentially a well-armed swap meet, with tables shilling semiautomatic pistols, holsters, camouflage baby clothes and T-shirts asking, 'Got Bullets?' (That was somewhat a rhetorical question – one business touted itself as 'Your 1-Stop Assault Shop.')"

"Volunteers for Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle sat next to a table of T-shirts urging voters to 'Ready, Aim, Fire' her opponent, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, as well as fellow party leaders, including President Obama. The vendor, Dave Hart, was not affiliated with Angle's campaign." ...

"As we inch closer to the all-important 2010 general election, [GOA-PVF] added one more name to the list of candidates who will come to Washington to slam the brakes on the Obama/Pelosi/Reid gun control agenda."

"In Tuesday's Republican primary in Colorado, Ken Buck won a hard fought victory with 52% of the vote."

"Late in the campaign, Buck's opponent criticized him for standing up for the rights of gun dealers when he worked as a federal prosecutor. In 1999, a U.S. Attorney appointed by President Clinton engaged in politically motivated prosecutions of several Colorado gun dealers. Buck took a bold stand to protect these businessmen and their Second Amendment rights in the aftermath of the horrific Columbine shooting." ...

"In a political sense, even the slightest attempt to get between most Texans and their right to bear arms is a losing proposition. That is why Republican Governor Rick Perry is looking to harvest some hefty electoral mileage from Bill White's one-time membership in a group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns."

"'Anybody who signs on to a group called Mayors Against Handguns, you've got to question their commitment to the second amendment,' said Perry to FOX 26 News."

"To be fair, it must be noted that Gov. Perry routinely omits the word 'illegal' when repeating the name of the coalition led by New York mayor Michael Bloomberg." ...

"'It's an outright lie,' Dudley said. 'He pointed to a nonbinding resolution I voted on on the county board, which had no practical effect. I joined other pro-gun members on the board voting against it.'"

"The Decatur Democrat spoke at the Decatur Civic Center alongside Macon County Sheriff Thomas Schneider, former Sheriff Jerry Dawson and sheriffs from Shelby and Moultrie counties. He said he would sponsor or support concealed-carry legislation if elected." ...

"But the real question we need to be asking is not whether a candidate loves their country but whether they like it. Do they like the ideals on which our country was founded? Do they like our form of government? When a candidate approaches you to ask for your vote this fall, I suggest asking if they like America." ...

"Do they like our Second Amendment or do they work to chip away the edges of our fundamental right to keep and bear arms?" ...

"Whenever a defendant expresses dissatisfaction with his attorney, the court has an obligation to inquire why."

"That Aug. 5 holding from the Seventh Circuit expands the duties of district courts, which until now, only had such a duty if the defendant expressly requested new counsel."

"The court wrote, 'The district court's dismissal of Williams's concerns was an abuse of discretion, and served to stifle what may have been legitimate concerns that Williams had about his attorney's performance.'

"The opinion also opens the door for nonviolent felons to argue that disarmament violates their Second Amendment rights." [emphasis added] ...

"Our church had a youth activity a couple of nights ago at Elm Fork Shooting Range. I decided to exercise my newfound 'journalistic privilege' to go along for the ride. Besides, what good Christian wouldn’t want to go to a gun range?"

"Elm Fork is within Dallas city limits. Coulda fooled me. Apart from the occasional skyscraper, the place was as rural as it gets. In fact, it was stereotypical backwoods Texas, with the flatness, the tan grasses, and the patches of trees. It was a beautiful place to go shooting."

"My personal experience with firearms is not particularly extensive. In other words, not as extensive as I’d like it to be, but whose is?. I’ve used handguns, rifles and even a submachine gun once. ..." ...
