DENVER -- State lawmakers will look at broadening Colorado's Make My Day law this week.

People who use deadly force to protect themselves in their homes cannot be prosecuted under the Make My Day law. But under the proposal Make My Day Better, people who use deadly force to protect themselves in businesses or cars would also be shielded from prosecution.

Smith deflected potential claims of extremism with a quote from late Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater: "I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue."

When it came to the assigned topic of the right to bear arms, Smith firmly held that the second amendment was an inalienable individual right and the only right that could protect citizens' other liberties.

At first, it sounded like the protests were against five-year-olds hunting deer.

But read closer and you discover the protests against the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners this month in Harrisburg were against a ban against
five-year-olds hunting deer. That's very different.

"Usually we close at 10 o'clock, now we're closing at 8," Dhillon said.

He said he's all for any kind of law that would help protect him at work and that’s exactly what the new measure is designed to do, protect people in their businesses and cars.

The first bill limits the governor’s powers to confiscate weapons during a state of emergency. The second bill deals more with the everyday -- it says anyone who is over 21, and not a felon, ought to be able to carry a gun in any part of their car without getting a permit first.

“Don’t you ever watch FOX News?” she demanded. “Our glorious leader, Bill O’Reilly, has declared that in order for Americans to be safe from camels overtaking taxis in New York, we must outshout all opposing views and suspend the Constitution. Except for the Second Amendment, of course. No one messes with the right to lock and load!”

OH: Democrat Gun Owners Say, "We Want Our Party Back!"

I am a lifelong registered Democrat who has voted in every election since 1968. I will always be a registered Democrat, in spite of my party’s lack of knowledge concerning the Second Amendment because I believe in most of their positions. However, until my party gets its head out of an unmentionable orifice, I will continue to vote against my party.

I know very few Democrats who support the vision of our party when it comes to firearms, and whenever I do cross paths with a Democrat who does, their opinion soon changes when I engage them in constructive dialogue about gun control.

"... All property, indeed, except the savage's temporary cabin, his bow, his match coat, and other little acquisitions absolutely necessary for his subsistence, seems to me the creature of public convention. Hence the public has the right of regulating descents and all other conveyances of property, and even of limiting the quantity and uses of it. All the property that is necessary to a man for the conservation of the individual and the propagation of the species is his natural right, which none can justly deprive him of . . . He that does not like civil society on these terms, let him retire and live among savages. He can have no right to the benefits of society who will not pay his club towards the support of it..."

For soldiers on patrol in Iraq, sniper attacks can seemingly come out of nowhere and leave little chance for return fire. But with new anti-sniper detection systems proving their worth for U.S. soldiers and marines in Iraq since 2004, warriors can now return fire more effectively to defend themselves-- and a Montana researcher is independently studying those systems to better understand how they work. The sniper detection systems in use by the U.S. military follow the supersonic trail of a bullet back to the gunman.

Contrary to some victims' demands after last September's Montreal college shootings, the Conservative government is still considering a one-time application for lifetime gun licences. An applicant would still have to fill out the proper forms, provide references and undergo a criminal-record check to obtain a licence to possess or acquire a firearm. After that, only a complaint from the public or a criminal conviction would trigger a review, according to internal RCMP documents obtained by Canadian Press using access to information legislation.

Marion Hammer, a Tallahassee lobbyist for the National Rifle Association, blamed law enforcement gaps, 'bleeding-heart, criminal-coddling judges and prosecutors' for missteps that put guns in the hands of criminals. Critics say the NRA pressures lawmakers to ignore the problem.

'The people who are intimately familiar with these laws, the people at the NRA, they know exactly what's going on,' said Kristen Rand, legislative director of the nonprofit Violence Policy Center. Florida's gun lobby and the program's administrators 'know they're permitting some bad people, but they don't want the general public to know that.'

Gun-control framed by the MSM, NRA sucks v. Sarah Brady sucks.

The less "a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State" rings true in contemporary America, the more the gun culture revs up its high-caliber lobbying and propaganda machine. We've made smokers pariah, forcing them out to the street. Alcoholism and drug abuse, once private demons, have become public crusades. Abolishing trans fats is a civic battle legislated by urban councils. Guns, however, reign supreme.

The Government is considering installing X-ray cameras on lampposts to spot armed terrorists and other criminals.

However, officials acknowledged that it would be highly controversial as the cameras can "see" through clothing.

"Street furniture could routinely house detection systems that would indicate the likely presence of a gun for example."

A political reality in this country is that there is a strong prejudice against guns, a prejudice based--as are all prejudices--on abysmal ignorance.

The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics provides the best and most objective data. One study of state and federal prisoners shows only about 2 percent used a "military style semiautomatic gun" --the accepted definition of assault weapons-- when they committed the crimes that put them behind bars.

The same study found that of all guns used by these criminals, 80 obtained them from "family, friends, a street buy or an illegal source," effectively putting them outside the restraint of any law.

A 74-year-old Korean War veteran was held at gunpoint and then tackled by Salt Lake City police officers after he refused was unable to comply with orders to raise his hands above his head.

Miles Lund said he tried to tell the officers - who believed he was carrying a gun - that his war injuries rendered his right arm immobile. "But they just wouldn't listen," he said.

Instead, according to witness accounts and a police report, at least three officers tackled the man, wrestling him to the ground at Liberty Park and wrenching his arms behind his back to handcuff him.

"He told me, 'Put your hands above your head or I'll shoot you dead,' " Lund recalled. "And I said, 'I can't, I was hurt in the war.' "
 

 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)]
