UT: Utah gun rule removes sodomy restriction

People convicted of violating the Utah sodomy law before such laws were determined in 2003 by justices of the U.S. Supreme Court to be unconstitutional won’t be restricted from being issued a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit, according to a new state-rule amendment which has the effect of law.

The amendment was adopted on Jan. 7 and reversed a three-month-old requirement to restrict the permits of applicants who were convicted of state sodomy-law violations. The requirement was part of the Utah Department of Public Safety rule R722-300 "Concealed Firearm Permit and Instructor Rule" that was renewed in October -- more than two years after the rule expired.

And one fact is usually ignored: Back then, Tombstone had far stricter gun control than it does today. In fact, the American West's most infamous gun battle erupted when the marshal tried to enforce a local ordinance that barred carrying firearms in public. A judge had fined one of the victims $25 earlier that day for packing a pistol.
 

FL: Tarpon Springs Police arrest a college student taping police activities as part of a group called "Cop Watch"

It's called "Cop Watching," where people tape police officers as they make stops and arrests. Tommy Frane says it's not that people who do the taping are against police officers, but they want to hold them accountable, like they do all public officials.

But when Frane and his friend, William Kilgore, did it Saturday night, Kilgore landed in jail. Frane says it is something you hear about in fascist countries and China, where people can't look at their public servants or hold them accountable.

The oldest living member of Easy Company, the World War II unit made famous by the TV miniseries "Band of Brothers," has died.

Ed Mauser passed away on Friday at the age of 94, according to the Omaha World Herald. He had been suffering from pancreatic cancer.

"It was a long trip, but everything comes to an end," Mauser said in an interview not long before his death, according to the Herald.

The 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Easy Company, parachuted into Europe in June 1944, near Normandy, France.

The unit later fought in the Battle of the Bulge and occupied Eagle's Nest, Hitler's mountainside retreat.

Josh Loftin's article on January 6 headlined "Two U of U officers put on leave over gun policy release" covers a current controversy about carrying firearms openly on the University campus. But Mr. Loftin's thesis is eclipsed by a more sinister issue. President Young's memorandum to his police appears to have been private, that is, the police had their directive, but the policy was not announced.

An Emergency Services Unit cop fired one shot, hitting the 76-year-old man in the stomach. The mistaken victim was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition.
In a strange twist, a source said the detective involved in the shooting lost his father, also an ESU cop, when he was killed in 1983 during a clash in the Bronx with an emotionally disturbed person.
Police said Saturday's incident began around 7 a.m. when Bronx Narcotics and ESU cops hit a fourth-floor apartment in a six-story building ...
The shooting victim wasn't identified.

More than 20 months after King County Sheriff's Deputy Matthew Paul mistook Christopher Harris for an assault suspect and slammed him into a cinema building wall in full view of a nearby security camera, Harris can still no longer walk, talk, or eat on his own.

Paul, meanwhile, remains a deputy, having long ago escaped charges stemming from the incident.

But a civil suit that started yesterday and will continue into next week may provide funds to support the 24/7 care needed to keep Harris alive.

A drug raid went awry Saturday when a police officer accidentally fired his gun and wounded the suspect's elderly father, authorities said.

It happened around 7 a.m. as a tactical squad entered a Bronx apartment to arrest a man on a narcotics charge, the New York Police Department said.

As the raid unfolded, one of the arresting officers, Andrew McCormack, inadvertently discharged his weapon, striking the suspect's 76-year-old father in the stomach, according to a law enforcement official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the ongoing investigation.

Police in Arlington, Mass., have seized a “large amount” of weapons and ammunition from a comics retailer who last week sparked controversy with his comments about the Tuscon shooting that left six people dead and 13 others, including a U.S. Congresswoman, wounded.

The Boston Globe reports that Arlington police suspended the firearms license of Heavy Ink president Travis Corcoran on the grounds of “suitability” pending the results of an investigation whether comments he made in a blog post titled “1 down, 534 to go” were intended as a threat. (There are 535 members of Congress.)

City News Service says Garcetti on Friday was seconded by six of his City Council colleagues on the motion, which he called necessary in the wake of recent shootings in Tucson and gun-related incidents on LA school campuses this week.

Ian Thomson moved to a rural homestead in Southwestern Ontario to lead a quiet life investing in a little fixer-upper. Then his neighbour’s chickens began showing up on his property. He warned his neighbour, then killed one of the birds.

The incident began six years of trouble for Mr. Thomson that culminated early one Sunday morning last August when the 53-year-old former mobile-crane operator woke up to the sound of three masked men firebombing his Port Colborne, Ont., home.

“I was horrified,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t know what was happening. I had no idea what was going on.”

RICHMOND - Gov. Robert F. McDonnell has quietly lifted the ban on people carrying firearms openly in Virginia's state parks, reversing a policy put in place by his predecessor.

Gun-control advocates decried the move, saying the decision could hurt the state's tourism business, while gun-rights advocates said the directive was overdue. It also was not unexpected, as McDonnell (R) had opined as attorney general three years ago that the Department of Conservation and Recreation's guns-in-parks ban exceeded its authority when it enacted the rule under then-Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D).

Carroll, Iowa -- If Saturday’s first Carroll Chamber of Commerce Legislative Forum is any indication the debate on Iowa’s new gun permit law is far from over and partisan debate on the issue may not exist. Democratic Representative Dan Muhlbauer and Republican Senator Steve Kettering held a debate on the issue.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people had not been "brainwashed" about gun ownership and they had been well armed. Hitler's thugs and goons were not very brave when confronted by a gun. Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half starved group of Jews took up 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazi's. — Theodore Haas, former prisoner of the infamous Dachau prisoner concentration camp
