LA: Five years later, no accountability for post-Katrina gun grab

In the days after Katrina hammered New Orleans and adjacent St. Tammany Parrish, an order was issued that only police would be allowed to have guns. Law enforcement personnel from various other states, as far away as New York and California, along with National Guard troops came in to help restore order. In the process, many citizens’ firearms were seized, sometimes at gunpoint, and invariably with the use of intimidation.

Into this mess stepped the Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association – and nobody else – to put a stop to the seizures, and a federal court judge quickly took action.

The National Rifle Association is frequently criticized for being “too extreme” on gun rights, or “too willing to compromise” on gun rights; it has been accused of “masquerading” as a hunting rights organization, and of all sorts of other things.

...

Earlier this month, this column discussed an attempt by several environmental groups to push a ban on all lead-based hunting ammunition; that is, shotshells with lead shot, cartridges with lead bullets, even round balls and conicals used by muzzleloaders.

WEBSTER CITY - Sgt. Scot Ely fired at Justin Marshall Jensen at least six times after Jensen pointed his .45-caliber handgun at the officer during a traffic stop Thursday night, according to police.

Hughes said he didn't know if Jensen had fired his weapon. Jensen had a permit to carry the gun, according to the Hamilton County sheriff's office. It was confiscated by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. While the DCI investigates the shooting, both the police report and the footage from the camera in Ely's patrol car will not be made public, according to Hughes.

AZ: Arizona police say gunman kills 5, then self

"A gunman entered a western Arizona home and fatally shot five people, including the mother of his two children and her boyfriend, before fleeing with the kids to Southern California where he killed himself, police said Sunday."

Submitter's note: So much for the "protective" power of that "protective" order. If a guy is good enough to make several kids with, but then you decide to shack up with some OTHER dude, then you hit your kids' dad with a court order that keeps him from his kids (evidence of abuse is NOT required for judges to issue "protective" orders), don't be surprised if that court order doesn't protect you from the desperate and/or inappropriate actions of guy #1.
 

UT: Gun advocates say Davis County can’t ban use of firearms on east bench
Submitted by: Anonymous

Gun enthusiasts say Davis County commissioners overstepped their bounds this week by enacting a ban on the discharge of firearms on its now populous east bench.

“They chose to do something they don’t have the authority to do. The state code is clear on that,” said Brent Tenney, a Salt Lake County resident who actively fought a concealed-carry ban on the University of Utah campus.

Utah law reserves gun-regulating authority to the state — except where the Legislature specifically delegates responsibility to local authorities or state entities. But it does allows municipalities to regulate and prevent the discharge of firearms within their borders.
 

MD: Md. crime victim sues over denial to renew permit to carry concealed handgun

On a snowy Christmas Eve a few years ago, Raymond E. Woollard was watching television with his family when he heard someone tapping at the windows of his Baltimore County farmhouse.

It was not Santa.

That night made Woollard a crime victim for the first time in his life and also one of a select few Maryland residents to receive a license to carry a concealed handgun. But to Woollard's surprise, Maryland State Police denied his request last year to renew the permit, saying they thought the danger to his life had passed.

Federal prosecutors in New Hampshire investigated possible criminal charges against the gun store that allegedly sold Philip Markoff the semiautomatic handgun used to kill Julissa Brisman but found no evidence that the dealer broke any laws, an assistant US attorney said yesterday.

Authorities say Markoff bought the pistol using a driver’s license belonging to a man named Andrew Miller, who investigators determined had no connection to the case. They do not know how Markoff obtained the license, but said he and Miller resembled each other.

Federal Judge Colluded with Prosecutors and Law Enforcement, then Presided over Trial

A federal judge conspired with the Bush Department of Justice to plan the largest immigration raid ever in the United States, and then presided over the trial of the plant’s manager, eventually sentencing him beyond even prosecutors’ recommendation.

New documents show Linda Reade, the chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa, was involved in the planning of the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement raid on the Agriprocessors kosher meatpacking plant at least six months before it occurred in May 2008. She asked for briefings from law enforcement and went as far as to ensure the raid was conducted around her vacation schedule.
 

Is a man's home still his castle?

It’s an enduring doctrine in America that one’s home is off limits to prying eyes and ears, and can be defended to the death if necessary. It’s not strictly true, of course, and certain states have eroded the doctrine to a gossamer wisp of the core idea. Yet, we tend to operate on an almost instinctual presumption that, when we are on our own property, we are kings and queens of the castle.

Felicia Gibson clearly adhered to this principle, and it’s landed her in serious legal trouble
 

CA: LDS bishop shot and killed at California meetinghouse

"A bishop for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was reportedly shot and killed Sunday at a California chapel.

According to the Visalia Times-Delta, Clay Sannar was shot in his office between services at an LDS Church meetinghouse on Tulare Avenue around 12:30 p.m. The paper reports someone called police several minutes later identifying himself as the shooter."

Submitter's note: Yea, why would anyone ever "need" to protect themselves with their gun at church? If this bishop had carried his OWN gun (since it's commie-fornia), he would have been a criminal, but he would probably be alive now. I carry at church. Do you?

After San Francisco school officials refused to allow local programmer Kevin Hall to carry a sidearm near Grattan School in Cole Valley, he sued in federal court Thursday demanding respect for what he calls his Second Amendment rights.

"I want to open carry in San Francisco, but there are schools all over the place," said Hall, in reference to California's Gun Free School Zone Act of 1995. "The law says you can't carry within 1,000 feet. There's one 925 feet from my front door. So I can't walk out my front door with a gun."

The newspaper had sought the public records to discover how many teachers in the county had permits to carry a concealed handgun.

That information was pertinent to another story the newspaper was covering in 2007 involving Shirley Katz, an English teacher at South Medford High School, who sued the Medford School District seeking to be allowed to carry her concealed handgun on campus.

"I've said it many times, but I'll say it again: If the sheriff or anybody else wants to make concealed weapons permits exempt from public records laws, they should go to the Legislature and ask them to do it," Hunter said.

OCEAN CITY -- The Ocean City Council is set to enact stringent new regulations for laser pointers, banning them for youths under 18 and mandating that vendors explain it is unlawful to shine them on others.

Green-colored laser pointers have exploded in popularity in the last six weeks. Resort police have asked council members to tighten restrictions in the town's existing law that makes it illegal for anyone to shine a laser pointer on another person.

"Nicholas Pinto endured months of physical, sexual and mental abuse in prison. Guards roughed him up, made him stand naked in a cold cell for hours at a time, and taunted him relentlessly. A fellow inmate raped him night after night, beat him when he resisted...And no one, he claimed, did a thing about it."

Submitter's note: remember, thousands of innocent gun owners in anti gun states, or people caught up in the enforcement of illegal federal gun laws (Hollis Fincher & David Olafson), and other harmless citizens such as most drug offenders, are sent to these torture/rape zoos every year. People joke about prison rape as if all accused people are guilty.

It's a claim of self-defense, a woman opened fire in her own back yard, but now she faces a felony charge for shooting a neighbor's dog. It happened earlier this year in Herman, Nebraska about 45 minutes north of the metro.

The Washington County attorney filed a felony charge against Sandra for cruelty to an animal, but her attorney will fight the charge. “Sandy did what she was authorized to do by law and that's to kill an animal that was threatening either her animals or herself,” said attorney James Martin Davis.

In the red rock and sand of the Arizona desert, just past the retirement villages and golf greens that have made this sun-worshipping city famous, sits the biggest public shooting range in the United States.

This is the gun culture of the American West, and it is from here that the latest challenge to the District's firearms laws has come. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) have proposed a law that they say would sweep away overly stringent regulations imposed by the D.C. Council after the Supreme Court struck down the city's 32-year ban on handguns.

If politicians disregard the rule of law under the Constitution, it is the peoples' right and responsibility to force compliance; and the only viable means available for doing that is exercise of the right to arms.
....The beauty of the Second Amendment, in theory, is that its existence is supposed to nullify its need. As long as the people have the ready means to rebel against a rogue government, they should never need to do so because politicians, aware of the people's power, should be scrupulous about avoiding anything that oversteps their authority and might incite the people to rebellion.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual... as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of. — Representative Suzanna Gratia Hupp (TX)
