NRA Finds A Welcome Audience at State Level

Not much is happening in Congress this year that deals with the issue of firearms, and the National Rifle Association is fine with that. For the longest time, the NRA stood in the crosshairs of some of Washington's nastiest legislative battles -- from assault weapons bans to handgun waiting periods. Sometimes the gun lobby won and sometimes it lost. Lately, the NRA has taken a lower profile in the nation's capital and has been turning its attention instead to state legislatures. Like a growing number of lobby groups that have tired of the expense and ugliness that congressional dustups often bring, the NRA has shifted its staffing and grass-roots pressure to passing laws at a more local place.

This week the Salt Lake District Attorney determined that McManigal was justified in protecting himself.

As most families were sleeping soundly early Labor Day morning, a local homeowner shot and killed a man who smashed through the back door of his home. The male homeowner physically struggled with the burglar, who had armed himself with a wooden club-like object he found inside the home. The homeowner retrieved a gun from his bedroom and yelled for the man to leave. When the burglar charged, the homeowner shot the man at least once in the upper torso with a .40 caliber handgun, said Police Chief Luis Collazo. He shot from 10 feet or less, Collazo said. Its point and shoot. The man staggered out the back door and fell to the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Darrell Hunter.

With the Iraq war, economy and gas prices dominating the political landscape, the traditional hot-button issues of abortion, gay rights and gun control haven’t surfaced much in the 6th Congressional District race.

But that trio of thorny topics is a way for voters to quickly differentiate between Republican Peter Roskam and Democrat Tammy Duckworth.

I write California Governor Arnold Shwarzenegger from time to time thanking him for his family-friendly actions. AB 352 didn’t reach his desk and thanks are due to the legislators who stopped it.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right. [Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846)]
