Police said the owner of a tire store shot and killed a man who broke into his business early Saturday. The owner was driving by to check A&J Tires off Pennsylvania Avenue after midnight when he saw someone behind his fence. After unsuccessfully chasing the man down an alley, he went inside to check his business. He was then confronted by a man who tried to attack him with a pipe, police said. The business owner shot the man several times.
 

NY: Pass The Rifle Hunting Bill ASAP

I am a sportsman and fully support the Rifle Hunting for Deer bill to be passed by our lawmakers as soon as possible. This is the bill Mr. Parment sent in. Hunting is a safe way to enjoy the outdoors, the records and statistics, validate this. This stands on its own merit. Years ago, a bill to allow handguns for deer hunting was passed. The opponents then used the same alleged arguments to oppose it, as they are now opposing the Rifle Hunting Bill. Fear is used by the opposition, in their description to oppose this Rifle Hunting bill. The term is an emotion only and it is called feeling safe. The truth is the opposition has no valid data to support their side.
 

September 11 and the 2nd Amendment

"What opponents of the second amendment have never understood is that the prime benefit of the right to bear arms is now and always has been reaped without a shot being fired. The main benefit does not lie in the occasional person who shoots an attacker in self-defense. It doesn't lie in the many attacks that are stopped by warning shots or the brandishing of a weapon. The main value of the second amendment is that anybody who considers attacking a home, a business, or a community, has to fear one thing above all--the people there may be armed.
 

CT: The Right To Own A Gun

Sometime in the next year, the U.S. Supreme Court may settle the question whether the Second Amendment to the Constitution grants individuals the right to own firearms or imparts a collective, civic right to bear arms as part of a military organization. We believe the latter interpretation is the correct one.

Some Ellwood City officials hope to take another shot at banning personal guns in the municipal building -- including the mayor's sidearm -- despite opposition from the National Rifle Association.

The Lawrence County town of about 8,600 was one of two Western Pennsylvania communities that adopted gun restrictions on municipal property -- only to promptly rescind the controversial ordinances.

Ellwood City Council President Glen Jones said a modified version of the measure will be discussed at a 6 p.m. meeting today. The session will determine if leaders want to enact the scaled-down legislation, which targets only the municipal building.
 

NY: High Point 9-mm gun is weapon of choice for criminals

The illegal handgun used by an ex-con in a firefight that left a transit cop wounded is the weapon of choice among New York City criminals, federal data show. Juan Calves brandished a High Point 9-mm. when plainclothes Officer Annmarie Marchiondo and her two anti-crime partners yanked him off the No. 4 train in the Bronx on Friday. The inexpensive pistol tops the lengthy list of guns seized from New York City criminals and traced last year by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Selling for as little as $250 on the street, the High Point 9-mm. dominated a list packed with cheap firepower.
 

FL: It's a jungle out there,so pack heat, some say

It began as a simple conversation about security on an online Jungle Terrace neighborhood forum after a few incidents of graffiti and property theft occurred. Then someone mentioned keeping firearms for self-protection, someone else suggested hosting a neighborhood training day at a local shooting gallery, and, before most realized what was going on, a few residents were seriously discussing a neighborhood weapons training plan. Neighborhood leaders say the push to encourage gun ownership in Jungle Terrace, a waterfront community bordered by million-dollar homes and Tyrone Square Mall, will most likely not catch on. The fact that the proposal even came up in the mostly quiet neighborhood is surprising.
 

MD: Rhetorical din on guns drowns out moderates

What the two sides don't acknowledge is that reasonable people can oppose civilian ownership of machine guns or .50-caliber rifles so powerful they must be shot using a tripod, while still supporting hunting and owning guns for self-defense. Americans can support background checks on guns sold everywhere - not just by licensed dealers - without putting gun companies out of business. The United States can require registration of guns and proficiency tests for gun owners, just as we do with cars, without making it impossible, or even difficult, for law-abiding citizens to buy guns.

The name-calling and breath-holding have made us all forget that a middle ground is possible.
 

TX: Man who shot musician told 911 he tried warning shot

Albrecht, who was 6-foot-5, was shot in the head around 4 a.m. Monday while trying to kick down Logg’s back door, police said. Logg lives next door to Albrecht’s girlfriend, whom police said the musician was fighting with before the shooting.

...

Albrecht’s parents say despite the confusion over their son’s actions, they understand why the neighbor reacted by firing his weapon.

“They didn’t invite someone at that time in the morning to be kicking at their door,” Ken Albrecht, the musician’s father, said in an interview with Dallas television station KTVT. “He had a house to protect, a wife to protect and my heart goes out to them.”

OH: Access to gun permits stirring confusion

A state public-records law that takes effect Sept. 29 has befuddled Ohio sheriffs, created disagreement among legislative supporters and surprised at least one First Amendment expert, who called it "patently unconstitutional." The public-records debate in Ohio usually centers on whether records should be released. But in three weeks, Ohio will tell people -- specifically journalists -- for the first time that they can view public records but not copy them. The law deals with conceal-carry handgun permits issued by county sheriffs.

Officials say a new law governing access to records on concealed weapons permits is confusing sheriffs and stirring disagreement among legislative supporters. At least one state official is calling for the law be challenged in the courts. The law, set to take effect September 29th, is a compromise between lawmakers backed by the National Rifle Association and others who think the permits should be public records.

The state's plan seemed simple enough: Starting on a holiday weekend and for a few days at most, shut down a computer system used for criminal background checks on gun buyers so that important technological upgrades could be made. But a backlash and an unsuccessful court challenge ensued, providing a potent lesson to the state's political leaders about the sensitivities and vigilance of the state's gun rights supporters, and yet another reminder of the challenges faced by gun control advocates in Pennsylvania.

I've been reading lately that Hagerstown has been really concerned about those released prisoners being left at the local bus station for their trip home. Instead of taking their seat on the bus, many have suggested that many released prisoners have elected to remain in Hagerstown as opposed to returning back to other jurisdictions. Maryland Public Safety Secretary Gary Maynard and others, who have studied the problem, have concluded that prisoners from the metropolitan area should now be released from a facility in Baltimore. The citizens of Hagerstown can now offer a happy sigh of relief. Eureka! Problem solved. Crime will be reduced and everyone can live happily ever after, and none of these hooligans will ever come back to Hagerstown.
 

CO: Taking aim at liberty--D.C. asks high court to reinstate handgun ban
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

How does Fenty’s argument against handguns square with the fact that under the old law, rifles and shotguns are allowed? ... Those who believe so-called safe storage laws ... make it more difficult for firearms to be used in domestic violence don’t know much about firearms or their storage. It takes only a minute or two to remove a trigger lock or reassemble and load a firearm. That’s not much time in an argument, but it can be a lifetime if some thug is breaking into your home.

Allowing citizens the means to protect themselves and their loved ones is something government should support, and we hope the Supreme Court affirms the Second Amendment as an individual right to own firearms.
 

DC: Ban brouhaha--D.C. gun ruling would have broad effect

D.C. Attorney General Linda Singer said the Second Amendment doesn't "require the District to stand by while its citizens die.”

Yet die they have — even with the handgun ban. FBI statistics for 2005 showed the District proper, which is home to about 550,000, recorded 195 instances of murder and non-negligent manslaughter. Washington's rate per 100,000 inhabitants was 35.4, which ranked only behind Baltimore (41.9), Detroit (39.3) and St. Louis (37.8) among large U.S. cities. Law-abiding D.C. residents might like greater ability to protect themselves.

A high school teacher wanting to carry a gun on campus is fueling a challenge against a Medford School District policy that prohibits possession of a weapon on school grounds.

Portland-based lawyer Jim Leuenberger, with backing from the Oregon Firearms Federation, said in an e-mail sent Friday to the Mail Tribune that he intends to ask a Jackson County Circuit Court judge to declare the policy "illegal and void" for holders of concealed handgun licences.
 

DE: D.C. asks to keep handgun ban

Washington, D.C., asked the Supreme Court last week to save the city's ban on handgun ownership, saying an appeals court decision overturning the prohibition "drastically departs from the mainstream of American jurisprudence."

If the court agrees to take the case, as most legal experts believe likely, it could lead to a historic decision sometime next year on whether the ambiguously worded Second Amendment to the Constitution protects an individual's right to own a gun or simply imparts a collective, civic right related to maintaining state militias.

One day after 11 New Jersey politicians were hauled away in cuffs and charged by the office of U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Christie with demanding and accepting bribes, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms issued a press release from their Bellevue, Washington home office, saying: See what happens when you let outlaws make the laws.

While he allowed how the 11 are innocent until proven guilty, the group's chairman, Alan Gottlieb, declared, "Might
I suggest that New Jersey's law-abiding gun owners be given that same benefit of doubt, instead of being constantly regulated, and treated like second-class citizens where anti-gun demagoguery is as deeply rooted in politics as is public corruption."

Nicholson said he and other family members were outside when they were approached by a distraught 10 year old boy. "He said that his father was beating on his mother and his grandmother," Nicholson said.

The boy led Nicholson to his nearby home, where through the open front door, the soldier said he saw the boy's father Martin Lemas, 35, pushing and choking two women.

"If you walked by, you could tell there was loud yelling and fighting," Nicholson said.

...

"He bumped into me and raised his hand at me and was going to hit me. So I struck him," Nicholson said. According to Oakdale police, Nicholson hit Lemas several times, forcing Lemas to be hospitalized with a swollen face and multiple bruises.

Many of the women who attend the annual Women’s Fun Shoot at the Oklahoma City Gun Club north of Arcadia enjoy the experience so much that they return year after year. Many go on to more serious training and eventually earn a license to carry a concealed handgun. Julee Rutledge of Edmond is one of them. Saturday’s Women’s Fun Shoot was her third. Almost 200 women attended what is the largest of this type of event in the nation, organizers said.

IS THE TOMMY GUN A POLICE WEAPON? [Guns Magazine, August 1957]

It is a basic premise of law enforcement that the intent of the police power is to bring the law-breaker before a court of justice. This brings us face to face with the question:"Is the machine gun a proper police weapon?" My answer is, "No."

In nine out of ten of the cases in which Tommy Guns have been used by police in recent years, equal results could have been obtained with less bloodshed, less wreckage of property, less danger to innocent people, by trained officers with other weapons.

Go to the link, download the August 1957 issue, and read the article starting page 21. Also of interest is page 12, "WHOSE FAULT IS IT IF COPS CAN'T SHOOT?"

...recent decisions by the Supreme Court such a response is entirely possible because colleges collecting mandatory student activity fees are no longer able to deny funding to student organizations they deem to be offensive. This applies to all clubs – even those celebrating the 2nd Amendment.

There can be no better response to an anti-gun extremist like Gary than to establish a 2nd Amendment club at the local state college or university. And to those who have already done so I would suggest making a funding request to your university for an afternoon’s supply of ammunition. Taking your 2nd Amendment club to the gun range at the taxpayer’s expense will surely get under the skin of your liberal administrators.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I now think the only way to control handgun use is to prohibit the guns. And the only way to do that is to change the Constitution. — M. Gartner, then President of NBC News, USA Today, January 16, 1992, pg. A9
