OH: New self-defense law puts onus on prosecutors

Ohio's version of the "Castle Doctrine," which takes effect Tuesday, Sept. 9, will put a twist in the idea that a person using force against an intruder in the home or car is presumed to have acted in self-defense.

...

Mathias H. Heck Jr., the Montgomery County prosecutor, said he has heard some defendants already claim the Castle Doctrine for assault defense where it doesn't apply and even though it is not yet law in Ohio.

"It's just like the insanity defense for many, many years, years ago, was overused, I think that will be the same way here," Heck said. "I think that the defense of, 'Well, I acted in self-defense under the Castle Doctrine' may be asserted a lot more than it will be able to be lawfully.

House Democrats make much of their support for the right of the District to self-government. Too bad they are willing to sacrifice this basic tenet of American democracy to the political self-interests of members cowed by the powerful gun lobby. How else to explain a planned vote on legislation so extreme it would strip the District of all power to regulate guns? Since appeals for home rule don't appear to be persuasive these days, let's hope that concern about safety and security in the nation's capital kills this bad bill.
 

OH: Lipstick and guns all part of today’s political scene

Obama said there are “two realities about guns” in the United States: One involves lawful gun owners; the other involves illegal handguns and automatic weapons used by criminals and “teenage gangbangers.”

“Surely, we can come up with a system that protects lawful gun owners, but at the same time tries to do something about kids getting shot,” Obama said, noting he backs the Second Amendment. “If you are a law-abiding gun owner you have nothing to fear from an Obama administration. The Second Amendment is an individual right ... people have the right to bear arms. But I also believe there is nothing wrong with some common-sense gun safety measures.”
 

Sarah Scares Them Because They Don’t Scare Her

Liberals are threatened by such patriotism because they worry that their position -- their belief that they, rather than we as free people, are the better rulers of our lives -- will be usurped by a rebirth of Thomas Jefferson’s understanding of self-reliance and independence.

They also worry that an increase in such patriotism will continually motivate men from all walks of life -- whether janitors, businessmen, NFL football players or college students -- to join our military and fight for the preservation of this great nation.
 

Thoughts on Sarah Palin

Palin's quite big on gun ownership. I'm not against gun ownership myself. The Second Amendment may not have relevance anymore in terms of communities rising up against their own government, but clearly it establishes the right to private gun ownership. Ban private gun ownership and you have defaced and denigrated one of the original Constitutional Amendments.

However, I think if our Founding Fathers knew what was coming — leagues of outcast loners bred on too much violent film, television and videogames who see no other way to express themselves other than shooting everyone in sight when they finally snap one fine day — they would have ensured, as much as humanly possible, that guns did not land into the wrong hands.
 

WI: McCain Will Protect Second Amendment

This brings us to the November election for president. To the hunters and gun owners and veterans, I believe we should vote for the veteran who served our great nation and served five years in an enemy prison.

This November, with the sure bet that there will be two — perhaps three — vacancies on the Supreme Court in the near future, we face a clear choice. If Barack Obama takes the White House, he will nominate enemies of the Second Amendment.

John McCain, who served in the Senate for many years, sees justices Scalia, Alito, Roberts and Thomas as models for the kind of jurists he would appoint. They believe in the Second Amendment.

I am happy you support the 2nd amendment. Myself and my family have always been collectors and hunters.

However I am losing trust in NRA for one reason. You seem to be willing to allow the destruction of our entire Constitution by the republican right as long as you can strike a bargain with the devil to spare your guns.

Perhaps you watch what has been happening in Washington since the Bush administration took office. Perhaps you don't care.

Perhaps you failed to note the constant attack on our civil liberties by this administration. Perhaps you failed to note that the few voices of patriots willing to stand up to protect the Constitution have all been Democrats.
 

OH: Ohio Concealed Carry Gun Law Changes Monday

Concealed weapons permit holders can now keep a gun hidden in a car, as long as they're carrying it in a secure holster -- one of several changes to Ohio's conceal carry law taking effect Monday.

The law previously required the gun to be in plain sight.

Permit holders also may bring a gun onto school grounds, as long as the gun owner is in a car picking up or dropping off a child.

Law enforcement officials said the changes are common sense.

The YouTube debates proved a big hit in the presidential race, and now the website is expanding its reach to Colorado's critical Senate race, with the candidates posting videotaped answers to users' questions on the site early this morning.

Colorado's is the third YouTube Senate debate, and the candidates were required to answer five questions submitted by users, including one from a man who — holding a rifle on his lap — asked their views on the original meaning of the Second Amendment.

"We thought with the massive amount of attention the (Colorado) race is getting nationally and how close it's been, it was really a natural fit for us," Steve Grove...said....

This morning, as you are walking up the steps to your church, a squad of Allentown police officers will besiege you, grab your Bible and tell you that some of the beliefs of this church are adverse to good order.

The officers say a neighbor complained about you going to this church, but they won't charge you with a crime and will return your Bible in a day or two.

Sound a bit far-fetched? In principle, it is not. The same Bill of Rights that prevents government authorities from telling you which church to attend places equal emphasis on preventing those authorities from violating other rights.
 

SC: 'Blue Dog' Democrat Bob Conley Takes on Lindsey Graham in South Carolina

According to many people who identify with Democratic Party politics in Connecticut and throughout the Northeastern part of the United States, Democratic Senatorial nominee Bob Conley from South Carolina doesn't fit the mold at all. Although he opposes our involvement in the Iraq war, Conley is a fiscal conservative who is passionately pro-Second Amendment and pro-life too. He strongly disagrees with Republican incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham on immigration. Conley doesn't believe in a guest worker program for illegal aliens which he believes is akin to giving them amnesty.

The differences between the candidates ...issues, such as abortion and gun control, are more stark, though Mr. Obama fudged them rhetorically in his convention acceptance speech. He professed to respect the constitutional right to bear arms, but said he didn't want to sell AK-47 machine guns to criminals — as if anyone were asking for that.

(Readers will be aware that I am, at the moment, technically a criminal in the United States, thanks to the perversities of the country's justice system. I can attest that distributing AK-47s to all the residents here, on their release, would not raise the crime rate whatsoever. Those few who might want an AK-47 will lay hands on one whatever the federal government thinks about it.)

This past summer, Citizens Rifle and Revolver Club in Princeton Junction NJ held it’s Women’s Day at the Range. And according to Club president Carol Katona;

the annual program has become so popular that the club has had to limit the participation to 75 people (pre-registration is a must) in order to keep producing a quality program year after year., and that the program stresses all-around gun safety, not only while shooting, but away from the range and in the home as well.

It was interesting to see women, from girls in their teens to women in their 60s, in attendance at the club. Some of those in attendance had never handled a gun before.
 

Joe Biden: The Voice Of Anti-Gun Experience

Last week, we highlighted the enormous differences between vice presidential nominees Sarah Palin (R) and Joe Biden (D). Most people are saying that Barack Obama chose Biden as his running mate to compensate for his own lack of experience. After all, Obama has been in the Senate since only 2005, while Biden has been a senator since 1973, when Obama was 11 years old. But few in the Senate have as much experience as Biden in attacking our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

"My colleagues in the American liberal press had little to fear at the start of the week. Their charismatic candidate was ahead in virtually every poll."

"...they succumbed to a spasm of hatred and threw the vase, the crockery, the cutlery and the kitchen sink at an obscure politician from Alaska."

"Journalists who believe in women's equality should not spread sexual smears about a candidate, or snigger at her teenage daughter's pregnancy, or declare that a mother with a young family cannot hold down a responsible job for the pragmatic reason that they will look like gross hypocrites if they do."

Certainly arguments can be raised that no criminal or mentally unbalanced individual should have access to guns. Between 1,500 and 2,000 deaths occur each year through the use of firearms. Quite understandably, sensational news stories regarding shooting rampages in schools, universities, churches, and even our mass transit system have only exacerbated our fear of guns. However, there is also the flip side, the gun-owners’ side, which does not seem to get a very clear airing of its own arguments.

This week's treatment of Sarah Palin has been an appalling display of sexism and elitism. But the hatchet-men are in for a rude awakening. The attacks over the past few days come down to two things: First, Sarah Palin is supposedly out of her depth. She's only been in high office for two years, she's age 44, and has no foreign policy or national security experience. They say she's not ready for the big game. Second, they imply she's a bad mother. She has a Down Syndrome baby, and her 17-year-old daughter soon will have a baby as well. Some are saying that a fit mother wouldn't take on a job like this under these circumstances. This is rank sexism, and dripping with condescension.

"Flanked by officials from the NAACP and the Southern Poverty Law Ctr., FBI Dir. Mueller last year announced with considerable fanfare a new partnership between his agency and civil rights org.
Not one case has been prosecuted under the FBI's Cold Case Initiative, which actually began two years ago with no fanfare at all."

"Some of the killings occurred up to 60 years ago...Others are ashamed, unwilling to bear witness against relatives who did the Ku Klux Klan's bidding."

Submitter's note: the holocaust industry apparently ran out of nazi's to hunt, so here's a new direction in the Homeland, the nation that defeated them-problem is, these criminals are all dead as well.
 

Obama Won't Ban Guns, 'I Don't Have the Votes in Congress'

At the OnTap blog, Cam Edwards passes along a Wall Street Journal report from the campaign trail in Pennsylvania on Friday that found Barack Obama digging himself a rhetorical hole on gun control, even in front of a hand-picked crowd.

“If you’ve got a gun in your house, I’m not taking it,’’ Obama said. But the Illinois senator could still see skeptics in the crowd, particularly on the faces of several men at the back of the room.

So he tried again. “Even if I want to take them away, I don’t have the votes in Congress,’’ he said.

Three people including a police officer are dead after a reported domestic disturbance at a hair salon turned into a gun fight, police in this San Francisco Bay area community said Saturday.

Martinez police and Contra Costa County sheriff's deputies responded to the disturbance call at Elegant Hair Designs at 11:35 a.m., said Jimmy Lee, a sheriff's spokesman.

At the time the salon was full of customers, including a bridal party. No one inside the salon was shot.

Submitter's note: How could this have happened? There are no handguns in S.F.

A gunman who broke into a Fayetteville home Friday night was shot and killed by another man who was inside the home at the time, police said. The gunman and an accomplice forced their way into the house in the 6400 block of Winter Park Drive about 10:50 p.m., said police Sgt. Sam Oates. An occupant of the home grabbed a small-caliber handgun he kept in the house and fired two shots at the pair as they hastily retreated. Police found the dead assailant lying in the driveway of a nearby home. A gun was still in his hand, Oates said.
