"As an attorney with the finest education from exclusive schools money can buy, Kennedy certainly must be aware that conviction for treason can be punishable by death. And subjecting American citizens to international tribunals for 'war crimes' over political differences in environmental policy is not only unprecedented; it’s stark, raving nuts."
 

FBI blasts Apple, Google for locking police out of phones

FBI Director James B. Comey sharply criticized Apple and Google on Thursday for developing forms of smartphone encryption so secure that law enforcement officials cannot easily gain access to information stored on the devices — even when they have valid search warrants.

His comments were the most forceful yet from a top government official but echo a chorus of denunciation from law enforcement officials nationwide. Police have said that the ability to search photos, messages and Web histories on smartphones is essential to solving a range of serious crimes, including murder, child pornography and attempted terrorist attacks.

Former New York Mayor MichaelR. Bloomberg’s gun control group announced a round of candidate endorsements this week, but his plan to pour $50 million into gun control efforts appears to be struggling to find campaigns to back in nationally watched races.

Everytown for Gun Safety released its inaugural endorsement list and named candidates from 28 states: 17 U.S. Senate candidates, 61 candidates for the U.S. House and 32 candidates for state offices.

The group also endorsed several Republican candidates for the U.S. House in safe GOP districts and Sen. Susan M. Collins of Maine, who also is expected to win re-election.

Parents of Marine City High School seniors are raffling 27 guns and a crossbow this winter to help pay for an end-of-the-year senior all-night party.

Raffling weapons to pay for an event attended by high school students drew the attention of a Detroit TV station, which ran a story about the gun fundraiser.

East China Community Schools Superintendent Steven Skalka said he didn't see anything wrong with the raffle.

Parents at St. Clair High School also are raffling hunting guns and crossbows — and they've already sold out of tickets.

'The publicity has helped sales. A lot of people have bought tickets after hearing about it on (TV)," Fowler said. "It's free publicity."

The lawyer seeking out residents affected by the police manhunt for alleged cop killer Eric Frein says he has been contacted by several residents who believe police violated their constitutional rights.

Joshua Prince, of Bechtelsville, Pa.-based Prince Law Offices, said in a phone interview Tuesday night that those from Pike and Monroe counties who have contacted his firm have reported incidents of police kicking them out of their homes without probable cause.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: The police long ago stated that they believed that Frein is no danger to the general public. So this appears to be part of their effort to "separate the fish from the water."

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: A small step toward sanity.
 

NJ: Shaneen Allen admitted into pretrial intervention, will not go to jail in gun case

The Philadelphia mother whose case brought national attention to New Jersey's gun laws is applying for pretrial intervention, after a clarification from the state attorney general changed the prosecutor's stance. ...
Allen originally faced prison time after she told a state trooper she had her gun with her during a motor vehicle stop last year on the Atlantic City Expressway in Hamilton Township. She had a valid concealed carry permit from Pennsylvania, but said she didn't know it was still illegal in New Jersey.
Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain originally denied Allen entry into the diversion program, citing the state's Graves Act, which did not include an exemption for legal out-of-state gun owners.

The attorney for a former North Carolina police officer accused of sexually assaulting an acquaintance asked a judge Tuesday to allow his client to undergo a competency exam.

Police allege Keilman entered the victim’s home while she was alone with her infant after her husband had left for work and that while inside he sexually assaulted her. It is also alleged that Keilman tried to get out of handcuffs and that he threatened to kill a trooper arresting him.

Keilman, of Hartland Township, worked as a police officer for the Apex Police Department in Apex, North Carolina, from February 2012 to November, when he was terminated due to “unacceptable personal conduct,” said Eleanor Green, the department’s human resources director.
 

For Gun Shop Owners, It’s No Longer Hip to Be ‘Square’

It’s white. It’s square. And at 1-by-1 inch in diameter, it is the perfect accoutrement to any entrepreneur’s smartphone.
With its quick swipe capability and ultimate portability, the high-tech Square Reader credit-card processor has become an invaluable tool in today’s economy. ...
Today, the Square’s terms prohibit gun-shop owners from using the credit-card processor not only when they are conducting gun sales at their brick-and-mortar stores but even more so when they are offsite, representing their stores at gun shows where they often need the wireless Square Reader to ring up sales on smartphones or tablets.

It's outrageous, right? Joshua Prince, a lawyer based in Bechtelsville, Pa., is looking into Fourth Amendment complaints against the Pennsylvania State Police, based on their conduct during the manhunt for suspected cop-killer Eric Frein.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: What's outrageous, and what crosses the line, is that a newspaper editorialist would write "Constitutional rights must be respected. But ...."
The police early on said Frein poses no threat to the general public. So their actions must be part of their plan to "separate the fish from the water."

If there’s one story (other than Ferguson) that gives the world a picture of what it is currently like to live in the state of Missouri, it would be the sad tale of Luna the dog.

Luna is a 100-pound German shepherd mix who lives in the St. Charles County suburb of O’Fallon, one of the fastest-growing communities in the St. Louis region.

In April, Luna became lost and had the misfortune to be spotted by James W. Clemens, 39, and Bradley Dean Reese, 43. The two men apparently decided that Luna was a wolf, and was therefore theirs to kill. They armed themselves with a shotgun and a rifle, and tracked the dog for about a mile and a half.

The men, according to the Post-Dispatch’s Susan Weich, said they were protecting their children.
 

CT: New Haven Attorney Sues City After Arrest For Legally Carrying A Concealed Weapon

According to Hwang’s attorney, Steven J. Errante, shortly after arriving for the 11 p.m. showing Hwang said police came into the theater and asked if he had a gun. He said yes and then produced his license to carry a concealed weapon. Errante claims the officers were satisfied and were not going to arrest Hwang until Police Chief Dean Esserman ordered them to do so. That, says Errante, is a violation of Hwang’s Second Amendment rights.

Attorney John Williams, who specializes in police misconduct investigations, says if what is alleged is true, Hwang’s Forth Amendment rights were also violated. That part of the Constitution prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and false arrests.

A senior citizen with no criminal history is on trial for murder after killing a known gang member.

The Fresno County jail couldn't hold Michael Lopez after gang officers arrested him in March 2013, so after a few hours in custody, he returned to Parlier and his mother's home.

In short order, he asserted his position in the home to his uncle Robert, who also lived in the apartment.

"(He got) approximately a foot to six inches away from his face and said 'I'm the boss. I'm back in town'," said defense attorney Jason Sorensen.

...

Robert Lopez went back to his bedroom, grabbed a pistol and killed Michael. His defense attorney says it was his only option.

As a firearms instructor of police and civilians, a firearms store owner, and a longtime ‘gun guy,’ I like to think I’ve seen it all when it comes to firearms techniques: the good, the bad, and the ugly. And while I’ll argue that there isn’t a ‘right way’ when dealing with self-defense firearms training, I can promise you there are many wrong ways. Here are 10 of the most common mistakes I’ve come across:

To date, most of the advertising in the 2014 Wisconsin gubernatorial campaign has been limited to the respective campaigns of Gov. Scott Walker and challenger Mary Burke. But a commercial released Thursday may signal that outside groups are set to change the tone of the race.

In a 30-second commercial called "Safety," the National Rifle Association endorses Walker, beseeching Wisconsinites to "Vote like your safety depends on it."

Millions more Americans will have the right to drive and walk around U.S. cities with hidden, loaded guns if freelance videographer Edward Peruta wins his fight to carry one on assignment.

The sheriff in San Diego rejected Peruta’s application for a permit to take his Colt 1911 .45 caliber pistol while traveling with cash and expensive equipment in high-crime California neighborhoods. He sued, and a three-judge panel of a federal appeals court (1011L:US) ruled in February that any responsible, law-abiding citizen is entitled under the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment to possess a concealed firearm in public for self defense.

There is a new twist in Monday's McNairy County shooting investigation.

McNairy County Sheriff Guy Buck says they will charge the man who was shot and not his estranged wife who reportedly pulled the trigger.

Buck said as Jeff Carrol recovers in the hospital from three gunshot wounds to the gut, he's now facing four criminal charges including kidnapping, domestic assault, burglary and vandalism.

Investigators say his wife was acting in self-defense when she reached for the gun.

"We have the right to defend ourselves, and at this point we believe she acted within her rights," Buck said.

I was a nervous wreck on Tuesday evening when I found myself at Precision Firearm and Indoor Range on Siegen Lane. I’d agreed to shoot a gun after 20 years of being vehemently anti-weapon.

And I’d been held to my word.

When I put on the noise-silencing earmuffs, I was left with only the sound of my heart beating nervously as I stared at an orange, person-shaped figure on paper, 20 feet down the range. My hands were shaking when I turned off the safety and put my finger on the trigger. I found my breath quickening and I tried to steady it — and my hands — before I pulled. The sound of a bullet being pushed out of the barrel and through the air undid all of my work to calm myself.

The D.C. Log Cabin Republicans couldn’t have chosen better timing for their Second Amendment Meeting on Wednesday night — coming a day after the D.C. Council passed a bill giving gun owners the ability to apply to carry a concealed firearm in the city for the first time in decades.

The featured speaker was scheduled to be none other than Dick Heller, the retired security guard who became the lead plaintiff in the federal court case that ended the city’s 33-year-old handgun ban and who is now challenging the restrictive registration regime that replaced it.

On September 25 Forbes magazine ran a column by Frank Miniter tracing the effect of the millions Michael Bloomberg has spent on gun control and showing that he is no longer getting the same bang for his gun control buck.

According to Miniter, Bloomberg's gun control groups--Everytown for Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in American, etc.--saturated the marketplace of ideas with so many inconsistencies and unverified claims that they finally hit a tipping point where researchers John R. Lott, Jr., and even pro-gun control outlets, seized on those inconsistencies.

Washington State gun rights advocates fighting to pass Initiative 591 issued an urgent appeal this morning to get their message out in 23 newspapers around the state, an effort that is being overwhelmed, they say, by billionaire-backed advertising that threatens to “crunch our gun rights.”

Outspent at least 7-to-1, the grassroots activists at Protect Our Gun Rights have known all along that they were up against a juggernaut. Now it is clear by reading messages on various Northwest firearms forums from people wondering where the campaign is to battle Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure supported by Seattle-area wealthy elites and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Thursday’s announced resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder is not going to satisfy people who have wanted the truth about what is possibly the worst scandal of the Obama administration, Operation Fast & Furious, because people died and will continue to die, and documents dealing with that misadventure have been withheld from Congress and the American public.
