SAF Inaugurates 'Roosevelt Courageous Woman' Award

"Recalling that the late former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was a firm, if not outspoken, advocate of personal defense - she campaigned for civil rights in 1958 in Tennessee with a pistol on her car seat - the Second Amendment Foundation today is inaugurating a new award honoring women who use firearms in lawful defense against a criminal attack." ...

"'Eleanor Roosevelt was a remarkable woman in many ways,' Ms. Tartaro [editor of Women & Guns magazine] said. 'She was probably the first truly activist First Lady, and a firm believer in the civil rights cause. What is less known about Mrs. Roosevelt is that she was no wallflower when it came to the subject of self-reliance, and it is well documented that she often carried a handgun, even while living in the White House.'" ...
 

Anti-gun fanatics can't stand the truth: Self-defense stops crime

"Following a recent FBI report that the first half of 2006 saw an increase in violent crime, anti-gun rights organizations quickly moved to blame passage of concealed carry laws and other common sense reversals of 1990s gun control policies."

"There's a term for such a theory: preposterous. Across the country, experts have anticipated this crime increase for some time, because of the rising number of younger males in what researchers call the 'crime prone years'--combined with a decrease in the number of jobs for unskilled workers and, perhaps most importantly, a return to the streets of gangsters who were imprisoned in the 1990s, and who have completed their sentences." ...
 

Leftist media tries to undermine American firearm owners' economic clout, charges U.S. gun law expert

... "In recent years, America’s 80 million law-abiding firearm owners effectively countered certain political and legislative attempts to undermine and perhaps eviscerate the individual Second Amendment civil right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms." ...

"Now, in an apparent attempt to lull gun owners into a false sense of political security, some media personnel allege that gun owner fund raising efforts are ludicrous. They imply that gun rights groups do not need to raise funds because there no longer is a threat to the rights of gun owners."

"These writers obviously would like to drive a wedge between the organizations and their supporters, thus undercutting gun owners’ political strength." ...

"Yesterday's Washington Post offers confirmation of a bizarre, new--and apparently to this point undistributed--27-page National Rifle Association book, Freedom in Peril: Guarding the 2nd Amendment in the 21st Century. News of the heavily illustrated book, which according to the NRA is only a draft and was somehow purloined from the organization, was broken recently by Wonkette."

"With colorful artwork that straddles the ground between a graphic novel and a New Deal WPA mural, the publication dials the NRA's paranoia level up to 11. The usual villains ... are rolled out ... They're joined by dark-skinned gangs of illegal immigrants throwing gang signs and the vultures, literally, of the news media. ..." ...

"This is not a tale, at least on the surface, about an athlete who made a poor choice."

"Darrent Williams was riding in a rented limousine, so he couldn't drive while intoxicated during his night out. He was doing, as far as we know, what millions of people do this time of year: He was out having a good time. He was at a party. It was New Year's. It was late, but doesn't everyone stay out late on New Year's Eve?" ...

"No, this is not about a roadmap of poor choices. This is not about the actions of Williams, as far as we now know."

"This is more about something else. It is about America's fascination with guns." ...

Evans had gotten a restraining order against a person who had threatened to kill him.

"The murder of a Tacoma, Washington high school teen this morning drew the nation's attention as the first high profile school shooting of 2007, but in a nation where too many states like Washington have laws that make it too easy for anyone to get guns, it is virtually certain it won't be the last. 'Our sympathies go out to the families of the young people involved in this morning's terrible incident at Henry Foss High School,' said Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. 'The police and the public need to get answers to the questions of 'where did the gun come from, and why are guns so easy to get?' Unfortunately, it is not difficult for many of our children to get a gun, and it has been getting easier, not harder.'" ...

"Mayor Richard Daley and other elected officials renewed their call for stricter gun laws Wednesday, saying Democratic control of the General Assembly could lead to passage of legislation that has foundered in the past."

"One measure would ban assault weapons, while another would limit handgun purchases to one a month and a third would require licensing for handgun dealers."

"Daley is calling the measures 'commonsense' gun legislation. He said firearms were used in 80 percent of the homicides committed in Chicago last year." ...

"Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, said the state already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country and passing more laws will not deter criminals from obtaining firearms." ...

It really made me think about this and take into consideration some of Ohio's antiquated laws."

"Ohio has recently had some sweeping improvements in our gun laws, but there is room for improvement. In cases like the one mentioned above, Ohio still has on the books 'a duty to retreat'. This means that under certain guidelines of the law, someone breaks into your home you have a duty to leave your home if possible." ...
