Can Washington DC Legally Stop Residents from Owning a Handgun? (Supreme Court Brief)
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
The central question is whether the Second Amendment protects a private right to keep handguns and other firearms, independent of an individual’s membership in a state-regulated militia. As a problem for constitutional historians, the question can be elaborated and restated in this way: Did the framers and ratifiers of the Amendment believe they were constitutionally entrenching an individual right to keep arms for personal protection? Or did they conceive the Amendment to achieve a different end, by affirming that a “well-regulated militia” of citizen-soldiers would preserve “the security of a free state,” principally by lessening the need for a republican government to depend on a standing army?
 

KY: Allow institutions to regulate rules regarding firearms

A bill to allow guns to be kept in cars on college campuses, introduced to the state legislature by Rep. Bob Damron, D-Nicholasville, threatens the autonomy of universities and does not deserve to pass.

This legislation, House Bill 114, would be a departure from a current state law that allows universities to make their own policies regarding firearms on university property.

Damron correctly stated in a Kernel article on Wednesday that this is an important subject and that those in opposition to his proposal should not take it lightly.
 

VA: Instant record checks are no threat

It is my hope that the bills will pass and that instant record checks will be required. I believe that a significant majority of Virginians agree -- at least 68 percent of us feel it is a high priority, according to a recent Christopher Newport University poll.

It is interesting to note that instant record checks are now required at gun shows if the seller is a licensed firearms dealer. Passage of these bills would level the playing field and the private seller would likewise be required to secure the check. The bills establish a procedure that would permit the checks with a minimum of inconvenience to both the seller and the purchaser.

An off-duty police officer who was shot to death in downtown White Plains early Friday evening appears to have been a victim of friendly fire.

Mount Vernon Officer Christopher Ridley, 23, was trying to make an arrest outside a Westchester County government complex when officers from a different department spotted him, and, under circumstances that remain unclear, opened fire and killed him.

They've murdered children, set deadly fires and destroyed lives in moments of rage. They went to prison and could have spent the rest of their lives behind bars.

Instead, they are free.

Dozens of cold-blooded killers who repeatedly begged to be released have in the last year gotten their wish in record numbers.
 

NY: Officers’ Arrests Put Spotlight on Police Use of Informants
Submitted by: Anonymous

It is sometimes said that snitches are the lifeblood of police work. The question is: Are they also a poison?
Formally known as C.I.’s, for confidential informants, they are a detective’s best friend. They act as eyes and ears. They serve as secret tipsters. They take the police, by proxy, to the dangerous and privileged places where badges cannot go.
At the same time, they present problems of administration — and sometimes of temptation — to those who uphold the law. Petty crime is often tolerated in exchange for information. Detectives can be duped by an informant’s agenda. While cases of corruption are rare, it is fairly common to have more “give” in this delicate give-and-take.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has spent the past few months denying that his recent, highly publicized departure from the Republican Party stemmed from presidential aspirations, claiming that the nation would never elect a “short, divorced Jewish billionaire” into its highest office. Yet whatever drawbacks his stature and marital status may present, they have not held him back from a similarly daunting quest: Taking on the illegal gun trade in America.
 

In More Cases, Combat Trauma Is Taking the Stand

When it came time to sentence James Allen Gregg for his conviction on murder charges, the judge in South Dakota took a moment to reflect on the defendant as an Iraq combat veteran who suffered from severe post-traumatic stress disorder.
“This is a terrible case, as all here have observed,” said Judge Charles B. Kornmann of United States District Court. “Obviously not all the casualties coming home from Iraq or Afghanistan come home in body bags.”
Judge Kornmann noted that Mr. Gregg, a fresh-faced young man who grew up on a cattle ranch, led “an exemplary life until that day, that terrible morning.”

 

AZ: Legislation to remove ban on CCW weapons in schools

New legislation has been proposed in Arizona to exempt CCW permit holders from the existing Arizona ban on having a weapon in public establishments, polling places, and schools. Currently in Arizona anyone who gets caught bringing a weapon onto school grounds who is not a Police officer will go to jail. This is of course a violation of the 2nd Amendment to infringe on the rights of citizens to bear arms, as well as a violation of our God given right to self protection wherever we are legally allowed to be . . .

You should check out the discussion taking place related to these bills. It is rather heated.

The state of California has added more than 200,000 records since 2007, but nationally only 20 percent of about 2.6 million criminal mental health records have been added to the system.

Rich Ohnsman, ISP spokesman, said the state is examining the current records system to learn just how mental health records will be released.

Ohnsman said personal medical records are protected by law and will not be released, but mental health records on people who are involuntarily committed will be compiled in the system by the Bureau of Criminal Identification.
 

Bush orders NSA to snoop on US agencies

Not content with spying on other countries, the NSA (National Security Agency) will now turn on the US's own government agencies thanks to a fresh directive from president George Bush.

Under the new guidelines, the NSA and other intelligence agencies can bore into the internet networks of all their peers. The Bush administration pulled off this spy expansion by pointing to an increase in the number of cyber attacks directed against the US, possibly from foreign nations. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) will spearhead the effort around identifying the source of these attacks, while the Department of Homeland Security and Pentagon will concentrate on retaliation.

To think that it all started with a shy yet curious 13-year-old playing a game with a relative. Four years ago, Alik Miller went to watch his grandfather, Art Miller, practice his skeet shooting skills. Skeet, an Olympic sport since 1968, is a recreational and competitive activity in which participants attempt to break clay disks flung into the air at speeds upward of 43 mph from a variety of angles. Alik watched in awe as his grandfather continued to break disks time after time. Alik turned and asked if he could learn. That small exchange ignited a desire that this year culminated in Alik winning the Junior World Skeet Championship in Massachusetts.
 

NJ: Hunt Aims to Curb New Jersey Deer Population

Sharpshooters will take to the trees next week in northern New Jersey's South Mountain Reservation to deal with a problem that has become the scourge of many suburban communities: too many deer.
Proponents of the 10-day hunt say it is necessary to thin the number of white-tailed deer because they are destroying the vegetation and becoming a hazard for motorists.
``I don't own a gun. I'm not a hunter. It's not something that I want to do, but it's something I have to do,' said Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo Jr., who pushed for the hunt.
--------
COMMENT: A limited bow hunt would have accomplished the same thing for much less taxpayer money. But then this is New Jersey.


 

The Second Amendment, gun control and the right of privacy

The Second Amendment reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The Supreme Court recently agreed to hear a case (District of Columbia v. Heller) that held unconstitutional the District's sweeping ban on handgun possession. The crux of the lower court's ruling is that the Second Amendment means the right of an individual to possess a gun, not a collective right of a state militia or the modern-day National Guard to do so.

"...Such gloomy forebodings produce, as I am well aware, little other effect than derision. Derision was the answer to the many years of faithful warning before the War. The argument, in those years, that slavery was too great a crime and too heavy an oppression to be endured much longer, and that, unless speedily put away by peaceable means, it would call out violence and end in blood, was, almost universally, met with incredulity, ridicule and scorn.
