Then they saw both Thybulle and the Sule brothers stop and get out of their cars, saw Craig and Christopher quickly getting the better of Thybulle with punches and kicks while his girlfriend, Anusha Bissoon, stood by. When Bissoon pleaded with them to stop and tried to physically intervene, witnesses said, she, too, was attacked.

"If a knife had not been used, he would have been dead," one witness, Robert Lilly, told investigators of Thybulle. "They did not let up on him at all."

The Salt Lake County Council on Tuesday voted down an appeal by the Salt Lake Tribune after the paper was denied access to records from a June shooting investigation.

The June 9 incident occurred outside Mama's Plantation restaurant in South Salt Lake. A security guard at the business shot and killed a man outside the restaurant after an altercation in which the victim threatened the guard and then lifted up his shirt and reached as if to grab a gun. The case was screened by Salt Lake County District Attorney Lohra Miller's office, which determined the shooting was justifiable under Utah self-defense statutes.

Metro Police say a father killed an intruder in his daughter's bedroom in an apparent act of self-defense.

According to police, 52-year-old David Meyers broke into a home in the 3500 block of West 79th Street early Sunday morning and entered the bedroom of a 17-year-old girl. He was carrying condoms, a rope and a knife, wearing nothing but a mask and a pair of latex gloves.

...

She was screaming as her father ran into the bedroom and fought off the attacker. When police arrived, the father had his arm around the intruder's throat and was holding him.

...

The case will be investigated as a homicide and it will be up to the prosecutor to decide whether to press charges.
 

TX: Conservative judges preserve gun rights

Two of the most important functions of the U.S. president are maintaining security from aggressors outside our borders and maintaining security from criminals inside our borders.

The president as commander-in-chief is responsible for our security from outside aggression. The president also chooses nominees for U.S. Supreme Court justices. Those justices provide the constitutional interpretation of laws that maintain security within our borders.

If it had not been for the conservative members of the Supreme Court, I shudder to think what a judicial decision earlier this year could have been if there were more liberal judges.
 

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia takes heat on guns

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is no stranger to criticism. He gives as good as he gets.

But two recent critiques of his opinion in the landmark decision guaranteeing people the right keep guns at home for self-defense are notable because they come from respected fellow conservative federal judges.

The judges, J. Harvie Wilkinson of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., and Richard Posner of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, take Scalia to task for engaging in the same sort of judicial activism he regularly disdains.

F: To the National Rifle Association for its ad campaign twisting Barack Obama’s position on the Second Amendment beyond recognition. The NRA cooked up almost out of whole cloth an Obama "10 Point Plan to 'Change the Second Amendment” that runs almost entirely counter to the candidate’s position. Truth in campaign ad sites operated by PolitiFact, run by the St. Petersburg Times and Congressional Quarterly, and at The Washington Post, slammed the campaign. The Post gave the effort a rating of “Three Pinocchios," which translates to ads containing "Significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions," while PolitiFact branded it with the Pants on Fire" designation.

Sen. Obama’s votes in the Senate really tell the true story of his convictions. Hostility toward Second Amendment rights was clear as he voted against a bill that provided liability protection for manufacturers and dealers of firearms or ammunition products for harm caused by already criminal or unlawful misuse. As a defender of gun rights, this concerns me. Is this country really inclined to weaken our 2nd Amendment protections?

...

Instead of personal attacks, I prefer to stick with the facts.

And even the best delivered speeches and grandiose promises don’t change the fact that many of Sen. Obama's changes will be for the worst.

Obama’s Selection of Biden Outrages Many Gunowners

If there were any question about how the majority of American gunowners would come down on the candidacy of Barrack Obama for president, the doubts vanished in a flash when Obama picked veteran anti-gun Sen. Joe Biden from Delaware as his running mate.

Biden proudly recalled during a July 23, 2007 Democrat candidates’ debate how he was “the guy who originally wrote the assault weapons ban.”

Where Obama is on record as opposing concealed carry, and favoring other restrictions, Biden has a long history of supporting gun control. He voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which prohibits junk lawsuits against the firearms industry. He supported legislation to close the so-called gun show loophole.

Ward One Alderman Charles Quincy Troupe says shootings happen in his district on an almost regular basis, so he’s calling on the more law abiding citizens of his Ward to be armed with guns for protection.

...

Troupe is encouraging his constituents to arm themselves for protection, but also wants them to call police “your only challenge is to stay alive until police get there and the only way for you to do that, in many cases, is to own a gun, know how to use it, and more importantly know when to use it.”

"Let there be no misunderstanding," McCain told the 12th annual U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance Foundation's "Save Our Heritage" Rally. "If Sen. Obama is elected president, the rights of law-abiding gun owners will be at risk.

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit seeking to let licensed gun owners bring firearms into non-secure parts of Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

U.S. District Judge Marvin Shoob ruled the gun advocacy group GeorgiaCarry.org, did not support its argument that guns should be allowed outside security checkpoints at Hartsfield-Jackson -- the world's busiest airport, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Sunday.

Georgia law allows weapons on public transit and GeorgiaCarry.org had argued that included Hartsfield-Jackson, the Journal-Constitution reported.

Let me start off by saying this: I am not the stereotypical gun enthusiast.

I don't wax eloquent about the Second Amendment or the National Rifle Association. I don't think Democrats are out to steal my guns. I don't fear a zombie attack (the only reason that I can think of that even remotely explains why a private citizen would need to own an AK-47 or an M16).
Actually, I don't even own a gun, which is typically considered an enthusiast necessity.

Even so, I have gone shooting several times with my father and had expressed an interest in learning more. As a result, I found myself taking a concealed carry class Saturday in Greensboro.

A great-grandmother walked into the gun buyback event at True Bethel Baptist Church on Saturday with a long object wrapped in a dark trash bag and her teenage grandson at her side. She handed the package to a police officer. “Whoa,” he gasped under his breath as he unwrapped it. “AK.” It was a civilian model AK-47, a semiautomatic assault rifle. The woman said that about a year ago, a young man being chased by the police dropped it in her yard. “I didn’t know what to do with it so I just kept it,” the woman said, declining to give her name. “I’m scared of these things. . . . I’m glad it’s gone.”

Why the Gun IS Civilization

By Marko Kloos
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or compelling
me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it. In a truly moral and civilized
society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me

The day the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the D.C. gun ban, leading gun control advocates dialed into a nationwide conference call to coordinate how the movement should frame its reaction to the media. Listening in was Mary McFate, a longtime board member of a Pennsylvania gun safety group. Although McFate had been a familiar face in gun safety circles for more than a decade, the other activists on the line were unaware that she once had a career as a corporate spy infiltrating activist groups.

Somewhere in the pile of outgoing packages at his gun emporium, Steve Lauer knows there may be an undercover purchase Mayor Bloomberg hopes to use to shut him down - and he doesn't care. "We'll take their money," said Lauer, proprietor of Lauer Custom Weaponry, which sells kits for painting guns that are illegal in New York, making him the target of an active investigation. "They can't stop us from shipping it," he said, adding that he has hundreds of city customers. "He cannot govern interstate commerce. He'd like to, but he can't."

Gov. Matt Blunt issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

Well, I’m not bitter; I’m blessed.”

NY: Police checkpoint seeks illegal guns

MOUNT VERNON - Drivers entering the city from the Bronx via First Avenue last night encountered the first police checkpoint searching for illegal guns.

Amid flashing lights and flares in the roadway, more than a dozen officers were pulling over every third car to ask for permission to search for guns and check for other crimes such as drunken driving.

But the goal for the night was to find guns and stop them from coming into Mount Vernon, a city that's already had seven homicides this year.

Mayor Clinton Young said the "bold initiative" sends a strong message to the public that something is being done to stop gun violence.
