Nothing says “back to school” quite like granting coeds the right to bear arms on campus. Last week, the Utah Supreme Court ruled 4-1 against the University of Utah’s nearly three-decade-old policy banning guns on campus saying that the ban goes against state law. However, the university is not backing down.

For instance, here's the Second Amendment in the original 1700s language: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Here's Travis's take: "Since we need a militia (National Guard) to protect the country, citizens can own firearms (guns)."

Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Phila.) and the lawmakers he met with at the Norristown courthouse on Sept. 5 are on the wrong track if they want to solve Philadelphia's gun violence ("Democrats call for action on guns," Sept. 6). Gun crime and its cousin, drug crime, are symptoms of the larger disease, poverty, which is caused by lack of education.

New Englander and Yale review
Vol. 21, Issue 81, October 1862

State Rights

"...Take, for instance, the right to keep and bear arms. The second amendment says, “it shall not be infringed.” May it still be infringed by everybody except Congress, and Congress not bound to protect it?...."

New Englander and Yale Review
Vol. 25, Issue 94, Jan. 1866

Government in the United States

"...It is a limitation of the powers of the national government to the uses for which they were granted and a prohibition of their being perverted to the infraction of the just rights...of the civil liberty of the people....

"...the right of the people to keep and bear arms...These are all manifestly limitations of power in favor of civil liberty..."

She looked like the perfect victim. Last Fri day, 56-year-old Margaret Johnson was leaving her building in her wheelchair. Except for her small dog, she was alone and didn't see the criminal attack her from behind. Having suffered bruises to her neck and arm, a friend of Johnson's said, "She was scared for her life. She's devastated." But this attack ended differently than most crimes in New York City. As her attacker grabbed her "violently" and "choked" her, Johnson pulled out a handgun and shot once, hitting the criminal in the elbow. Johnson was fortunate that she was able to defend herself.

A Cape Coral man was justified in shooting an intruder who forced his way into the man’s motor home at a Wal-Mart parking lot, a prosecutor said this week. Iron County Attorney Scott Garrett said no charges will be filed against Carl Coltellino, who was taking his wife, Tracy, and their two daughters to Grand Canyon National Park when they made an overnight stop July 25 at the Wal-Mart here. Garrett said Stephen Stubbs, 26, of Cedar City, forced his way into the motor home and during a struggle tried to take a hand gun away from Coltellino, who shot and killed the stranger.

Illinois native Jim and Sarah Brady today sent the following letter to Illinois Gubernatorial candidate Judy Baar Topinka: We heard about your comments from last week regarding assault weapons: "I'm the sword of justice... We will take him out with my little rolling pin known as the assault weapon. I will prove to him, indeed, it is an assault weapon." Jim and I pride ourselves in having decent senses of humor, but we didn't find your remarks funny. We now understand that you have been asked to apologize and that you are unwilling. We are writing to plead with you to do so, because it's the right thing to do.
 

Nonlethal weapons touted for use on citizens

Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before they are used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.

“If we’re not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation,” said Wynne. “(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press.”

Posters Note: I guess it's a good thing this type of thinking wasn't around when Eugene Stoner was testing his new M16 design. We wouldnt want the rest of the world to think badly...so why not just zap a few US citizens first.

A "crybaby" huh? Those were the words used by Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-5th) against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who called on Congress to oppose a slate of federal bills that would prevent law enforcement agencies from accessing gun crime trace data, making it much more difficult to stop criminal gun trafficking. The crime trace data is absolutely essential for law enforcement agencies working to stop illegal trafficking. They use the data to find out where illegal guns are coming from and to break up those illegal channels.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
