UK: Speed guns and hand guns

" 'An ordinary person who was once able to own a .22 pistol for target practice now faces a five year jail sentence. And yet gun crime is on the increase. Real criminals who are willing to commit murder or armed robbery are hardly likely to be deterred by the fact that they also commit a crime by owning the gun in the first place. But ordinary people suffer restrictions as a result.' " ...

"Mr. Gregory continued: 'Exactly the same is true on the road. An ordinary person driving at a safe speed for the circumstances now faces a barrage of new speed limits and cameras designed to extract cash from them. At the same time, we have fewer traffic cops than ever, leaving law-abiding drivers unprotected from the actions of truly dangerous drivers. It is no surprise at all that road deaths have risen under this flawed approach.' "

"Joseph Warzycha was spared jail time yesterday for accidentally shooting his police supervisor a year ago."

"But the former East Providence patrolman said the justice system held no justice for him." ...

" 'My errors were a partial cause of the death of Major McGregor,' he stated. 'What I do not acknowledge today is that the incident was a crime, nor am I a criminal.' "

"Instead, Warzycha criticized the legal system and his fellow officers on the SWAT team -- and says he is not the only one to blame."
 

IA: The great American gun show

A local alternative newspaper's article about a local gun show perpetuates several anti-gun myths, courtesy of the Iowans for Prevention of Gun Violence, including that gun shows are an important source of firearms for criminals, that a gun in the home is more likely to be used to kill a family member than a criminal, that there is a greater likelihood of suicide in gun-owning homes, and that there is a "gun show loophole."

"Not that Moore cares, but it was America's gun-control movement that sprouted from racist soil. Infamous Chief Justice Roger Taney, of Dred Scott fame, wrote that if blacks were "entitled to the privileges and immunities of citizens ... (i)t would give persons of the (N)egro race, who were recognized as citizens in any one state of the union, the right ... to keep and carry arms wherever they went. And all of this would be done in the face of the subject race of the same color, both free and slaves, and inevitably producing discontent and insubordination among them, and endangering the peace and safety of the state. ..."

OH: Legislator starts drive to remove three Ohio Supreme Court justices

"A state lawmaker has started a drive to remove three Ohio Supreme Court justices from the bench."

"Rep. Ron Young is seeking co-sponsors for a resolution to remove Justices Paul Pfeifer, Francis Sweeney and Alice Robie Resnick."

"The action by Young, a Leroy Township Republican, reflects a long simmering resentment bubbling within the Republican-controlled legislature over a series of sharply divided 4-3 Supreme Court rulings."

-------
Cudos to Rep. Young and all who fall in to help remove these three activist judges. Should they succeed, cases like the Hamilton County case questioning the constitutionality of Ohio's concealed carry ban, of which OFCC is a financially contributing plaintiff, may actually stand a fair chance of being ruled on based on the Ohio Constitution.

"The Stark County Park District began enforcing an OPEN(!) carry ban on its own Park Rangers beginning in the early 1990's. In the course of performing their duties, the Rangers confront hunters, alcohol, drugs, and arrest on warrants. Yet they are not permitted to carry a sidearm. They are given a bulletproof vest provided by the Park Board."

"The Rangers themselves want their in-the-line-of-duty carry privileges restored, and the surrounding community is viewed as supportive of a reinstatement. But a portion of the Park Board will not arm them, and give no good reason for not arming them."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the constitution they don't like. ó Alan Dershowitz
