U.S. May Ease Police Spy Rules

The Justice Department has proposed a new domestic spying measure that would make it easier for state and local police to collect intelligence about Americans, share the sensitive data with federal agencies and retain it for at least 10 years.

The proposed changes would revise the federal government's rules for police intelligence-gathering for the first time since 1993 and would apply to any of the nation's 18,000 state and local police agencies that receive roughly $1.6 billion each year in federal grants.

Investigators said Carol Beal, 26, and Paul had a history of domestic violence. Beal had filed a recent complaint against Paul for battery charges.
 

Books, pencils, rulers -- and 6 shooters

Nobody had to wait too long for the insane consequences of the recent Heller decision (in which the Supreme Court voted by a one-vote margin to uphold an imaginary "private" right to own handguns) to happen. Now the Harrold Independent School District in Texas will allow its teachers to show up for first day class with books, pencils, rulers – and six shooters.

Maybe the students ought to show up with Kevlar ballistic vests, helmets and first aid kits. Maybe they should organize themselves into infantry squads in case of trouble – you know, the kids sitting in the first row are "point," another kid is trained as a medic while the others can offer suppressing fire from the rear ranks or the classroom's flanks.
 

Judge Nullifies Juror Nullification

It was supposed to be just another federal drug prosecution. The federal prosecutors introduced evidence that the man on trial was involved in the black market drug trade. The defense attorney said the government agents entrapped his client. And then the twelve citizen-jurors retired to deliberate the outcome of the case.

But then something unusual happened. The jury sent a note to the trial judge with the following query: Since the Constitution needed to be amended in 1919 to authorize federal criminal prosecutions for manufacturing and smuggling alcohol, a juror wanted to know from the judge where “is the constitutional grant of authority to ban mere possession of cocaine today?”

The Supreme Court said "The Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia," but gun-grabbers continue their efforts to ban firearms. The draft 2008 Democratic platform promises to reinstate the assault weapons ban, even though it did absolutely nothing to reduce violent crime.

NY: Buffalo Police batter their way into wrong house

Armed with a battering ram and shotguns, Buffalo police looking for heroin broke down the door and stormed the lower apartment of a West Side family of eight.

The problem is that the Wednesday evening raid should have occurred at an apartment upstairs.

And, that’s only the tip of the iceberg, according to Schavon Pennyamon, who lives at the mistakenly raided apartment on Sherwood Street with her husband, Terrell, and six children.

Pennyamon alleges that after wrongly breaking into her apartment, police proceeded to strike her epileptic husband in the head with the butt end of a shotgun and point shotguns at her young children before admitting their mistake and then raiding the right apartment.

A student group plans to ask University of Colorado regents this week to allow people with handgun permits to carry weapons on campus.
CU Regent Kyle Hybl said he was not sure if regents would take up the issue.

The Colorado Springs chapter of the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus argues that gun-free zones on college campuses translate into a ban on self-defense.
 

TX: Teachers Get Their Guns

On August 15, 2008, a Texas school district voted to allow teachers to bring guns to class this fall. The plan, adopted by the Harrold Independent School District was approved by parents who understand the right to own and bear arms to protect and defend. This is a small, rural district 150 miles northwest of Fort Worth. This school district is also 30 long miles from the Sheriff's office. Leaving the teachers without a way to protect and defend themselves and their students is simply condoning any evil that befalls them.

On June 28, only two days after the Supreme Court announced its 5-4 ruling that Washington, D.C., citizens have the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment to the Constitution, I found myself standing in a pool of blood in York, from a man I had just shot. It was not my intent that evening to test the Second Amendment or kill somebody, but events unfolded to make it necessary for me to draw my weapon to defend myself and others.

My fiancée Maria and I had spent the day showing real estate investors our investment properties in York. We were driving to nearby Hanover to visit my mother when we came across what looked like a rear-end traffic accident.
 

Should We Kill People Over Gay Marriage?

A few days ago, a couple articles written by the bestselling Card were forwarded to me, and they demand a response from all clear-thinking Americans. Why? What´s the big deal? Oh, nothing… just that Card is advocating a violent overthrow of the American government if it decides to support gay marriage.

...

So yes, Mr. Card certainly has the freedom of speech. He can start his revolution if he wants to advance his own backwards ideology. But I´m not a pacifist. If Card takes up arms against a progressive regime (i.e. the opposite of what we have now), I´ll be on the other side of the battlefield, with my Constitutionally protected right to bear arms, to fight against him.

This leads me to the guest column by Dave Workman, published July 16 in the Observer-Dispatch. In his main thesis, Workman is so wrong he is not even right. The purpose of the Second Amendment was not to protect us from our own government. Its purpose was to provide a means of protection from powerful foreign governments and yes, sometimes Native Americans, for a fledgling country without a formal national defense.

The founding fathers were well aware of the contributions citizen soldiers played in the Revolutionary War and granted them the right to bear arms for purposes of the common defense. That is why the first phrase of the Second Amendment is written as it is.
 

Cities Look to Draft New Gun Laws

Lawyers in the Chicago area are looking for new ways to restrict handguns despite a recent Supreme Court ruling that made bans illegal. The ruling found that Washington, D.C.'s ban on all handguns violated the constitutional rights of the city's residents. Since then, villages and cities around Chicago have been getting rid of their bans. Nina Vinik is with a gun control group but she says the court's decision wasn't all bad news. VINIK: It's an opportunity to come in now and say, 'Okay, no longer do we have a ban, let's look at what we can put into place.'

Builders are working into the night so that Red's Trading Post can hold the grand opening of its new location on Monday.

Ryan Horsley, general manager of Red's Trading Post, said that despite some setbacks the store will open for business as scheduled.

The new location at 203 Fifth Ave. S. in Twin Falls - formerly the site of Tribes Interiors - required a "significant" investment of time and money in order to make the building secure enough to store firearms, Horsley said.

"The biggest thing we have had to deal with is the installation of security," Horsley said.

He said workers have installed cameras, security windows, additional exterior lighting and security doors.

A student group will try to persuade the University of Colorado regents this week to loosen the school's gun-control rules and allow those with handgun permits to pack heat on campus.

The Colorado Springs chapter of the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus argues that gun-free zones on college campuses translate into a ban on self-defense.

The group's petition argues: "Gun-free zones have proven ineffective. Criminals do not respect gun-free zones any more than they respect human life. Gun-free zones only disarm victims."
 

TX: Will bill to lift D.C. gun restrictions save red-state Democrats?

A bill to lift gun restrictions in the District of Columbia could be the key to political survival for Texas congressman Nick Lampson and other red-state Democrats.

As fall elections approach, these House members in traditionally Republican districts hope to appeal to conservative voters by pushing a bill that would eliminate D.C.'s restrictions on gun ownership.

After the Supreme Court ruled in June that the city's gun ban was unconstitutional, district officials adopted strict regulations for selling and registering handguns and promised to enforce a separate ban on semiautomatic weapons. Critics say these measures violate the court's ruling by hindering people from buying firearms.
 

PA: Carney in trouble: Irate liberals target Pa.'s Blue Dog Democrat

In 2006, liberal and centrist Democrats put aside longstanding differences to support candidates across the political spectrum in pursuit of the party's first congressional majority in 12 years. Now, as Democrats have grown confident about expanding that majority, old fissures are re-emerging as some left-leaning activists once again emphasize loyalty to their ideas over loyalty to the party.

One of the first big battlegrounds is in northeastern Pennsylvania, where liberal bloggers who boosted Rep. Chris Carney's 2006 upset win over a four-term Republican incumbent have this year turned against the freshman Democrat, actively campaigning for his defeat in November.

Looks like the demented are sane enough to have identified a new place to safely assault unarmed victims: local Democratic Party offices.

After all, while a Democratic politician might find it expedient to be photographed hunting, it's very difficult to imagine any ambitious Democrat carting a weapon around as a matter of course. A desire to regulate private firearms out of existence has been the hallmark of the party for many decades.

When a madman wants to kill somebody and doesn't much care whom -- reports appear to indicate that the shooter in Arkansas didn't even know Mr. Gwatney -- the choice of firing range fits.
 

UK: The American school where teachers carry a pen, a ruler and ... a gun

When teachers return for a new school term in the tiny Texas farming town of Harrold, they can bring a extra tool of the trade alongside books, pens and worksheets. To defend pupils from any gun-toting maniacs, they can carry loaded pistols into the classroom.

With barely 300 residents, the remote rural community in the state's northern dustbowl has appalled gun control advocates by becoming the first in the US to allow its teachers to bear concealed firearms.

Harrold's school board maintains that the move is necessary because the town is 25 miles from the nearest sheriff's office, making it hard to get swift help in an emergency.

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams
