Outdoors folks are always arguing about something. Controversy is epidemic. The latest and loudest appears to be an argument over the validity, or intent, of a new pro-gun organization, the American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA). On the surface the AHSA appears to be what it purports — an alternative to the National Rifle Association working toward the same goals as the NRA, but in a different, more measured fashion.

In June, the Supreme Court decided that Detroit police did not violate the Fourth Amendment rights of a drug dealer named Booker Hudson when they entered his home in August 1998 only five seconds after announcing their presence at his door. Hudson's lawyers argued that--although he had a loaded gun hidden in the couch next to him--police should have waited to enter for at least 20 seconds after knocking. The four dissenting justices in Hudson v. Michigan complained that the decision repealed a "knock and announce" rule that has been part of common law since the 13th century. Newspapers around the country echoed their lament.

A federal judge on Wednesday rejected an attempt to dismiss a Second Amendment lawsuit against the City of New Orleans.

The National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation sued New Orleans, Mayor Ray Nagin and Police Superintendent Warren Riley last year to stop the confiscation of firearms from private citizens in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

When Simon Shing-Lee got word last month that criminal charges against him for shooting and critically wounding his former employee were being dropped, he was relieved, he said, but not really happy. Lee openly admitted to the Jan. 23 shooting of Jiu Li, a former cook at the Jumbo Buffet Chinese restaurant in Orange Plaza on Route 211. But Lee, who co-owns the restaurant, maintained that he shot in self-defense after Jiu Li came at him repeatedly with punches.

Something that took place during the evacuation of flooded areas that didn't get much attention from the major media, but had some Internet bulletin boards buzzing, was the confiscation of firearms by law enforcement personnel. Sometimes such measures might be necessary, but in most cases, legally owned firearms in the hands of private citizens can help, rather than hinder, the keeping of the peace.
 

FL: On shaky ground: Florida spreads its firearms folly

The bad news: Florida's gun-crazy. The worse news: The ailment is contagious.

Since the spring of 2005, 15 states have adopted laws expanding the concept of self-defense to ludicrous -- and deadly -- proportions. Florida was the first to adopt the so-called "shoot first" or "stand your ground" law, which allows people to use deadly force whenever they feel threatened, so long as they are in a place they have a legal right to be.

A man's home may be his castle in South Carolina but for self-defense purposes, so is his car, his business and the tent he's pitched in the woods.

With little fanfare, the General Assembly this year greatly expanded the scope of the law under which ordinary citizens can use deadly force against intruders to protect themselves and their property.

“The (new) law is written very clearly. You must believe your life is in danger.” Ashley Varner NRA spokeswoman

If Jacob Trucan’s life is threatened, he thinks he could pull the trigger.

“I believe in protecting yourself, especially in cases of rape or something like that,” said the 15-year holder of a concealed-weapon permit. “A woman or a guy should have the right to protect themselves.”

In the middle of August, 13-year-old children should be wringing the last bit of fun out of their summer vacation.

They should be splashing in the pool, catching insects in a jar, flipping somersaults on an old mattress or throwing a football through a tire hanging from a tree.

Nowhere on the list should be included: "Showing off your new gun to a friend."

(Detroit) - In a blatant attack on Michigan’s hunters and hunting heritage, the Detroit Zoo, an agency of the city of Detroit, is assisting the Michigan Humane Society by allowing them to hold a fund raiser at the zoo for the campaign to ban dove hunting in Michigan.

The event is scheduled to take place on September 16. On the list of special guests at the event are Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and Mike Markarian, executive vice president of the HSUS, the nation’s largest anti-hunting, animal rights organization.

Tickets for the event are advertised at $100 each and “all proceeds go directly to the [sic] help restore the dove shooting ban on mourning doves.”

Webb’s Sporting Goods is unusually quiet for this time of year. And owner Harold “Webb” Babcock Jr. said the lull could have something to do with conservative consumer spending habits this summer. Or, it could be because of negative publicity generated by a federal lawsuit filed against Babcock’s store three months ago. It may be a combination of the two. Babcock doesn’t know.

Law enforcement officials in northern Indiana launched a program Thursday that warns the public they could face stiff prison terms if they make illegal gun purchases for others.

The program, "Don't Lie for the Other Guy," is aimed at publicizing a federal law against acting as an intermediary between a licensed gun dealer and someone for whom it's illegal to own a firearm.
 

NJ: The end of the 2nd Amendment?

Ngoc Le heard his wife’s screams and ran from the back of the wireless store he owns in Camden, New Jersey. His wife was behind the counter, as was a masked man wielding a knife. The man brandished the blade, herding the couple into a back room. Once there, he tied the 28-year old businessman to a chair, then proceeded to rape 22-year old Kelly Le. Once the brutal rape had finished, he slit the couple’s throats, then ran away. There was no 2nd Amendment, no right to own a gun, and Antonio Diaz Reyes got away with murder.
