The federal court's ruling came just one day after the NRA and the Second Amendment Foundation jointly filed a motion to halt the seizures of firearms from private citizens who are not breaking the law.
The groups described the action by the New Orleans Police Department as "arbitrary," "without warrant or probable cause," and thus unconstitutional.

A federal court has issued a restraining order to bar further gun confiscations from peaceable and law-abiding victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.


The National Rifle Association and Second Amendment Foundation had challenged the action of Police Supt. P. Edwin Compass III and the New Orleans Police Department in seizing firearms from citizens in the Katrina's aftermath which saw looting and unrest, saying that only law enforcement personnel would be allowed to have weapons.

 

'Awe' for Constitution isn't such a bad thing

When I read Jeff Mankoff's editorial impugning any (appropriate) reverence for our Constitution ("Putting an end to Constitution worship," 9/22), honestly, I was disappointed both by Mankoff's failure to appreciate the Constitution's rightful significance and the possibility that he might be representative of a sizable, ill-informed constituency of Americans. If he does indeed speak for anyone other than sixth-year Ph.D. students in misunderstanding the Constitution as a "crucial [piece] of American history," the state of citizenship in this country is in serious trouble.

"(CNSNews.com) - Violent and property crime rates in 2004 remained at their lowest levels since the Bureau of Justice Statistics started keeping track in 1973,. . ."

"The report also said the use of firearms in crimes has declined substantially over the last 10 years."

"Only 6 percent of violent incidents in 2004 involved the use of a firearm in the commission of a crime, down from 11 percent in 1993. . ."

"The key to fighting gun crime is through aggressive enforcement of the nation's existing gun laws; and through programs like President Bush's Project Safe Neighborhoods, we are keeping gun crimes down," Gonzales said."'

A flood of planners: New Orleans offers blank slate to impose vision for a new city

The flood waters have not receded yet -- indeed they have been augmented -- but the devastation that is much of New Orleans has attracted a coven of planners, visionaries, utopians, reformers and moral uplifters to dream at the Big Easy's corpse. They don't seek to pick the city's bones clean, but to feast on funded dreams during the reconstruction.

How Gun Control is Used Against "we the people"

Gun control laws are advanced by the "Progressives", because of several undisclosed reasons:


1) A populace that can't defend itself is subject to easy control by an out of control government.


2) They are "stuck on stupid" and naive enough to think their coddled criminals will not carry guns.


3) Many of them are "elites" that are isolated from the "real" world and hide behind "security blankets" that
keeps them from being subject to the normal day to day criminal world.

Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Bureau Director Carl Truscott said his department is a major reason behind the all-time lows in the nation's crime rate, a factor he attributes in part to successful relationship-building.


Truscott, who spoke Wednesday to Penn's Criminology students, joined the ATF Bureau last year after earning numerous awards in 22 years of employment with the U.S. Secret Service.

SAN DIEGO I was in the arms of my son the first time I fired a gun. How Roman and I arrived at that moment is something I'll still be trying to figure out probably 'til the day I die.
I have my reasons for hating guns. Several years ago, a friend's little girl lost her eye in a BB gun accident. A couple years after that, our neighbor across the street - a university professor - was killed, along with two of his colleagues, when a graduate student shot them at San Diego State University.
 

In defense of freedom

Guns are good and terrible things. Whether they are good or terrible depends on whether the hands that wield them are good or evil. Guns can, of course, be a lot of fun if they're used for target shooting or hunting. They can also be and often are lifesavers in the event of a threat. Since self-defense may be the single most basic of all the human rights, that's a whole lot of good going on! The obvious good of protecting yourself and your loved ones from harm is so integral to all of us and to society as a whole that even the drastic action of killing another human being can be excused under the law as "justifiable" homicide, or, more simply and accurately, "self-defense."

BIG-CITY DEATHS: The time to kill

Detroit had more justifiable homicides than any of the 10 biggest cities in 1999-2003. Now a state House bill seeks to expand citizens' rights to use deadly force in self defense.


The bill's purpose is to clarify the rights of self-defense and to provide immunity from prosecution or civil lawsuit.
It would allow a citizen to use force he or she reasonably believes necessary -- including fatal force -- against someone breaking into their home or occupied vehicle.

Law-abiding citizens in a public place could stand their ground and resist a threat of serious injury.

A program that teaches women how to handle a firearm. Only ladies were allowed to attend, hoping to make women feel more comfortable with guns, without being intimidated.

Your editorial about the new Florida law saying you can defend your life when someone breaks into your house or car was out of line.



Well, considering that The Blade is the liberal institution pushing a liberal agenda, I guess that this editorial was just another attack on the rights of law-abiding people of Michigan and Ohio to defend themselves from the bad guys.

Next Saturday it will become legal, in Florida, to use force in order to protect oneself from attackers. In the past, it was illegal in Florida to use force on force when facing an attacker, unless those facing attack first attempted to flee.


The previous policy left those being attacked at a decided disadvantage to their attackers. The Sun-Sentinel reports that it will soon be legal to employ deadly force in self-defense.

Do you actually believe, as per your editorial on Friday (A Duty to Retreat, 09/23/2005), that decent, law-abiding people should just retreat in the face of an attack by the criminals? And why? Because the “poor” criminal might get hurt? Give me a break. Criminals don’t deserve the back of a retreating victim; they deserve a smoking Colt .45!

LUCKNOW: Gun-totting and trigger-happy youths, firing at will, have been a common sight in and around colleges here for the past few days ahead of student union polls to be held Wednesday.


In the run-up to the Lucknow University Students' Union (LUSU) elections, clashes are not limited to students or their political godfathers coming to fisticuffs. They begin and end with exchanges of fire, even as the police take a stroll as if nothing has happened.

Last week, the capital Sanaa saw the protest against the firearms, demanding their ban in the main cities and the issuance of the firearms carrying and possession control that has been collecting dust in the parliament for several years. It is good that the firearms law turns into a public issue. Of course, public participation in all the issues is very much needed and I have been really happy when I heard that some NGOs were going to run a protest against firearms chaos in the country.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them. Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States; With a Preliminary Review of the Constitutional History of the Colonies and States before the Adoption of the Constitution [Boston, 1833].
