New Gun Rights Suit In D.C. Tests 2nd Amend Limit
Submitted by: Bruce Krafft

"One question left unanswered by the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark Second Amendment ruling last year is this: When do law-abiding Americans have the right to carry firearms in public for self-defense?"

"In a lawsuit filed against the city of Washington, D.C. on Thursday, the Second Amendment Foundation aims to find out."

"The plaintiffs are four gun owners who were denied licenses to carry firearms in public on their person ..."

"The District of Columbia is a special case. Its city code says nobody may carry 'either openly or concealed on or about their person, a pistol, without a license.' But a law enacted in December 2008 appears to have curbed the ability of the police chief to grant those licenses." ...

"Where gun rights are concerned, a 'Road to Damascus' moment occurs when a formerly anti-gun or gun-shy person decides to become a gun owner."

"For some, this comes after careful consideration of the issue. For others, it comes after a traumatic event illustrates to them just how critical self-defense is to a law-abiding citizen. In either case, being able to help such a new gun owner is one of the most rewarding things that an instructor gets to do."

"I was lucky enough to spend most of my free time last week introducing a once gun-shy family to their rights and responsibilities as new gun owners." ...

"... the truth is that every new gun owner adds great strength to the fight to protect and enhance our rights." ...

"Bigotry assumes many forms, hides behind many facades, but always it is the same; the social demonization of entire groups, classes or races of people in an effort to make them appear inferior and detrimental by their very existence."

"In the wake of a nasty multiple shooting at a Pittsburgh, PA-area fitness club by a not-so-clearly psychotic man identified as George Sodini, America's gun prohibitionists – led by the Violence Policy Center and Freedom States Alliance – are clamoring for restrictions or repeal of concealed carry statutes."

"Liberals can no longer hide their anger, their old, old anger. If you believe in psychology at all, you can understand how one's world view reveals itself different ways. When it comes to the so-called social conscience, it soon becomes apparent that liberal actions have nothing to do with conscience, and everything to do with control. ..."

"America is getting a little nervous: we may soon be conferring to each other our condolences on the loss of the second amendment and the loss of independence."

"Hatred of guns is really hatred of independence. Independence from servants and from their silly anti-crime programs signals being unneeded ... and that means lack of control of citizens they serve. ..." ...

"If you don't have the truth on your side, just make things up as you go. That seems to be the motto of the gun control movement. Misleading facts, skewed statistics, and outright lies are the meat and potatoes of their efforts to nudge public opinion in their favor."

"Take, for example, the issue of controlling the flow of illegal guns into Mexico, a lie that has been exposed in this column, as well as by several other Gun Rights Examiners. It is simply not true that 90% of the guns used by the Mexican drug cartels come from the United States, but saying so makes it easier to follow up with applying international pressure to reinstate the failed 'assault weapons ban.' Now, they're trying the same lie to get pressure from Canada as well." ...

"As I discussed in a recent article, the federal 7th Circuit Court of Appeals held that the Second Amendment offers zero protection against the restrictive gun control laws currently in place in Chicago and Oak Park, Illinois. Plaintiff's attorney Alan Gura ... quickly filed an appeal (pdf) with the Supreme Court, asking them to hear the Chicago gun case. Now Chicago and Oak Park have filed their own petition (pdf) with the Court. Not surprisingly, they argue that the 2nd Amendment should not apply to state and local governments. They also picked up on the 7th Circuit's controversial argument that federalism would best be served by letting the states disregard the Second Amendment entirely. ..." ...

"The 31 Republican senators who voted against Judge Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation deserve credit for standing firmly against a nominee who has an unsound judicial philosophy and who failed to testify candidly about it." ...

"... Senate Republicans ... conducted a serious and responsible review of Judge Sotomayor’s record, including her many troubling statements about the nature of judging and her remarkable mistreatment of the claims by New Haven firefighters that they had been discriminated against ... That review yielded serious reasons to doubt Sotomayor's commitment to the judicial obligation of impartiality, doubts that were reinforced by the lawless 'empathy' standard that President Obama has endorsed for his Supreme Court picks." ...

"As I have written before,'Packaging is everything.' Now, by virtue of Hannah's newly acquired Mosin Nagant M44 Carbine, I must learn how to improve the tactical packaging of an unfamiliar caliber, 7.62x54R."

"Of course most 7.62x54R surplus ammo comes packed ... in 'spam' cans." ...

"I hate spam cans. I must have opened hundreds, maybe a thousand, in my life and I hated each and every one of them. They are heavy, bulky, have no ready handle to tote them by, are hard to open in the daylight with a special tool and impossible at night."

Gym Shooting Proves Concealed Permit Holders Do Kill

"Yet another concealed weapons permit holderA and 'legal' gun owner, George Sodini, with no prior criminal record, committed mass murder. On the evening of Aug. 4, Sodini attacked an aerobics class at the LA Fitness gym outside Pittsburgh where he used three handguns, two of which used high-capacity ammunition magazinesB that could hold up to 30 rounds, to gun down three women and wound nine others before killing himself." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: A) No major media outlet has claimed he was a permit holder, just the usual anti-gun suspects. Even if he was a permit holder, this means that in the last couple of years, 5% of the population of PA has committed 0.1% of the murders. Is there any other demographic that can make that claim?

B) He had 3 semi-autos and a revolver and fired 36 shots. If an 'AWB' had been in effect the antis would be calling for a ban of "high-capacity 10 round magazines".

"Well, of course our senators, Hatch and Bennett, voted against Sonya Sotomayor."

"The woman has decades of experience and qualifications up the wazoo, but the NRA doesn’t like her, and she did make that silly 'wise Latina' crack, so what else could they do — vote their conscience? Do their jobs?"

"Of course not."

"Sen. Bennett’s press release is priceless on this. Here's the first paragraph of that release where he states his first, and one must assume, most important problem with her:"
"...I remain troubled by Judge Sotomayor’s stated belief that the right to bear arms is not a 'fundamental right' ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Of course their votes had nothing to do with the vacuously short Ricci and Maloney rulings, or her decision in Didden v. Village of Port Chester where she agreed that failure to pay a developer $800,000 to get his blessing for a pharmacy was a 'public purpose' sufficient to have their land condemned. Nor could their concerns have anything to do with her inability to recall any of the 14 SCOTUS cases on self-defense, including Heller which called it a 'fundamental right' or her confusion over what constitutes a 'fundamental right'. Nope, these two must be tools of the NRA.

"Now the teabaggers are threatening violence against the SEIU:"
"Hello, my name is Diana and I'm calling from Oregon."

"I just wanted to let the SEIU know that America is watching the thug tactics that you folks are using at health care meetings and various other public places, and the absolutely thuggish violent tactics that your group is using."

"I suggest you tell your people to calm down, act like American citizens and stop trying to repress people's First Amendment rights. That, or you all are gonna' come up against the Second Amendment."

"Stop the violence."
"... The argument appears to go something like this: 'If you say that you disagree with me, you're revoking my First Amendment rights, and to defend them, I'm going to shoot you!'" ...

Submitter's Note: Ah the mature and reasoned intellectual discourse of the Left. It sounds to me that what Diana said was "If you keep trying to beat people up, we will start defending ourselves."

"Did you find yourself scratching your head a few months ago, when a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously decided to 'selectively incorporate' the Second Amendment to apply to the states?"

"You probably should have. Not because the decision was somehow wrong, but because it came from the Ninth Circuit, which has a long history of animosity towards the very concept of the Second Amendment. It really was a bit of a surprise."

"Well, worry no more. The Ninth Circuit brass is now moving to correct this unwanted spurt of rationality within its ranks. (It's not called the Ninth Circus Court for nothing.)" ...

"A little over a year ago, gun rights activists were celebrating across the nation as news broke that the Second Amendment Foundation and civil rights attorney Alan Gura (among others) had prevailed in Heller v. D.C. before the Supreme Court. The decision established that the Second Amendment does in fact protect an individual right to keep and bear arms, but because the question before the court was about citizens keeping weapons in their own homes, laws forbidding the bearing of arms were not directly affected. Yesterday, the SAF filed another lawsuit to enforce the 'and bear arms' phrase in the Second Amendment in Washington, D.C." ...

"Local officials hope a law signed in early August by New Jersey Gov. Jon S. Corzine will take illegally obtained guns off the street and make their communities safer."

"The law ... sets a limit of one handgun purchase every 30 days ... The legislation only applies to handguns. New Jersey is the fourth state to limit the number of handguns that can be legally bought within a certain period."

"Proponents of the law said the limits would prevent the proliferation of guns into the hands of criminals while not infringing on citizens' Second Amendment right to arm themselves. In New Jersey, handguns cannot be used to hunt, so those for the law say the new legislation does not affect hunting in any way." ...

Officer Robert Auletta, 54, was docked 409 days' pay and lost 30 vacation days before being forced to retire after his conviction at a department trial in May.

Auletta, who struck a deal to keep his pension, thought he was chatting with a 15-year-old girl during explicit Internet exchanges, authorities said. The "girl" was actually a Westchester detective.

When Auletta showed up for a tryst in December, 2006, he was busted. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of acting in a manner dangerous to a minor and NYPD departmental charges led to his ouster.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
