Two national gun rights groups yesterday joined individual Louisiana gun owners in a federal lawsuit to stop authorities from confiscating firearms from private citizens in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) filed a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, seeking a temporary restraining order to halt the seizures of guns from law-abiding citizens. They described the confiscations as "arbitrary," "without warrant or probable cause" and thus "illegal."

National Rifle Association leader Wayne LaPierre slammed New Orleans authorities Monday for seizing legal firearms from lawful residents.
"What we’ve seen in Louisiana - the breakdown of law and order in the aftermath of disaster - is exactly the kind of situation where the Second Amendment was intended to allow citizens to protect themselves, " LaPierre said.

"When law enforcement isn’t available, Americans turn to the one right that protects all the others - the right to keep and bear arms," LaPierre said. "This attempt to repeal the Second Amendment should be condemned."

Dimitri Vassilaros' column taking New Orleans to task for confiscating the firearms of law-abiding citizens was spot-on, as the British say ("Big Easy hard on gun rights," Sept. 18 and TribLIVE.com).
I ask that someone, anyone, please explain to me this bizarre notion that it somehow is wrong for the law-abiding to protect themselves from the lawless.

The one thing liberals and conservatives have been able to agree on with regard to the Katrina disaster is that the government stinks.

The Mayor of New Orleans stinks, Governor Blanco stinks, and the federal government's response was also quite unpleasant to our olfactory senses.

But the crazy thing about government is that no matter how badly they destroy everything they touch, the solution is always the same: more government, more regulation, and more restrictions on individual liberty.

Police and military officers will soon be able to use a single gun to break down doors and detain suspects during hostage rescues or drug raids, thanks to a new weapon the Idaho National Laboratory designed. About five engineers at INL created the Breaching Shotgun — a rifle and shotgun in one — that law enforcement officials and military personnel can easily use to blast through a door and fire like a rifle at the same time.

State lawmakers should reject a new move to amend a critical element of Ohio's concealed-carry weapons law. If they won't, then Gov. Taft should remain steadfast in demanding public accountability and media access to the lists of concealed gun permit holders. Under a proposed bill by state Rep. Jim Aslanides, R-Coshocton, an applicant for a concealed weapon can sign a sworn statement saying the release of their personal information could lead to a criminal attack and prevent authorities from releasing their name.
 

Public accountability needed...over the rabid anti-gun media

The Willoughby News-Herald has published an editorial opposing HB347, which would prevent certain CHL-holders from having their names published in the media.

Quotes from the editorial:
"These gun advocates don't fear criminals. Rather, they fear public accountability. If concealed gun permit holders can't deal with this scrutiny, they should turn in their weapons."

Our response:
"The News-Herald speaks of public accountability. Please list for your readers each and every instance in the last year where you have ended a crime story with “and the crack-head did not have a license to carry a concealed handgun.” Just what sort of accountability are you talking about, if you do not even take this most logical step in your reporting?"

Despite promises from city officials to crack down on violent crime, gun violence is still permeating The City, with nine murders in September to date, more than in any other month this year.

According to city officials, the majority of gun violence is directly related to gang activity in two of The City's neighborhoods — Western Addition and Bayview-Hunters Point.

Residents say the shooters are becoming bolder, striking in daylight and bringing their gang battles into people's homes, places of business, and in one case this week, onto a Muni bus.

An articulate college graduate with an "alarming criminal history" who was arrested in Helena for being a felon with a firearm vowed Thursday that he's going to be so law abiding in the future that he won't even get a parking ticket.

But that promise didn't stop U.S. District Court Senior Judge Charles Lovell from sentencing Derek Campbell to 37 months in prison, which is the maximum term recommended under sentencing guidelines.

"Your criminal history is about as high … as the score goes. You're clear off the chart," Lovell said. "And there are some seven convictions that weren't even counted due to their date.

Jamacia: Have gun - will kill!

In times of war on the battlefield, people otherwise known for normal behaviour, have turned to savagery and become wanton unjustified killers. The Mai Lai massacre of the Vietnam war where a young officer of the US army slaughtered non-combatant women and children is one such example. There are many other examples in which the environment of widespread killings appears to provide a general licence to kill with little, if any, rhyme or reason. It would seem, to borrow a line from Shakespeare, "on such a sea are we now afloat" in Jamaica. Like uninhibited soldiers cut loose on the battlefield, our local gunmen appear to be more than simply trigger-happy.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins ... Society is in every state a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. — THOMAS PAINE
