According to a Tennessean analysis of FBI statistics, Tennessee is second only to Washington D.C. when it comes to gun violence. Tennessee is the worst in the nation for victims of aggravated assaults with a firearm and fifth-worst in robberies. The FBI defines aggravated assault as "an attack that inflicts severe bodily injury and is usually done with a weapon likely to produce death or great bodily harm."

LAS VEGAS — An active-duty Navy SEAL was found guilty Friday in Nevada on 13 federal charges alleging he headed a scheme to sell machine guns, explosives and military hardware from Iraq and Afghanistan in the United States...

..."It's unthinkable that someone with his experience would sell guns like this on the streets of the United States," the ATF agent said.

Submitter's comment: In the light of recent activities, I have to wonder how the ATF agent managed to keep a straight face whilst saying that.

Broward County Commissioners will ask Florida Legislators to exempt Broward County from House Bill 45, the recently enacted state law that allows anyone with a concealed weapons permit to take a handgun into a public building or park.

Submitter's note: State of Florida passed the law to prevent the Counties and Cities from stupidity like this. Hope the Legislature tells them to take a hike, and quickly. No exemptions! That's how they started this mess the first time around. Stay on em folks! Make phone calls.

Franny can’t get a gun. Brooklyn security guard and substitute teacher Frances Halpern wants to pack heat, but the NYPD denied her gun-license request in April -- and now she’s gunning for a judge to overturn that decision. Halpern, 53, argues that cops based their denial on a single arrest nearly a decade ago for “essentially washing her son’s mouth out with soap for using profane language.” The case was ultimately dismissed. “She otherwise has a perfect record,” Halpern’s Long Island lawyer, Patricia Feerick-Kossmann, insisted.
 

Fast and Furious weapons were found in Mexico cartel enforcer's home

High-powered assault weapons illegally purchased under the ATF's Fast and Furious program in Phoenix ended up in a home belonging to the purported top Sinaloa cartel enforcer in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, whose organization was terrorizing that city with the worst violence in the Mexican drug wars. In all, 100 assault weapons acquired under Fast and Furious were transported 350 miles from Phoenix to El Paso, making that West Texas city a central hub for gun traffickers. Forty of the weapons made it across the border and into the arsenal of Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo, a feared cartel leader in Ciudad Juarez, according to federal court records and trace documents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

A break-up and a restraining order weren't enough to keep one man away from his ex-girlfriend, but a gun shot wound may just be enough to keep him from breaking into her house again.

That’s what happened in Boone County Sunday morning.

“I thought it was a firecracker going off,” Paul Foster, a neighbor, said.

But what Foster really heard was a gun shot inside Debbie Bragg’s home. Deputies say Bragg's ex boyfriend, Paul Conrad forced his way in, got into a fight with her new boyfriend, Robert Cain and then Cain shot Conrad in the arm.

Paul Conrad, 37, of Sylvester broke into Debbie Bragg's home in Branham Heights mobile home park about 7:15 a.m. Sunday, Boone Sheriff Rodney Miller said in a press release. Robert Cain, Bragg's current boyfriend, was in the home when the break-in occurred.

Conrad and Cain struggled but the confrontation ended with a single shotgun blast to Conrad's left arm, Miller said. Cain was able to subdue and hold Conrad until deputies arrived.

A New York City police officer thought quickly when a suspect pulled a gun on him -- he jammed his finger between the gun's hammer and the cylinder. He broke the finger, but he likely saved his life. The New York Daily News reports that early Saturday morning cops stopped a speeding livery cab in Brooklyn. As they approached the car, they said they saw one of the two men in the back seat adjusting something in his waistband.

And in doing so Mr. Winkler ignores or plays down the many reasonable, centrist arguments made, for instance, by Senator Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group led by Michael R. Bloomberg of New York.

Ed.: Schumer and MAIG are centrists. Yeah, right.

There is new controversy brewing that is pitting the federal government against some states.

It involves gun control and medical marijuana and the political right and the political left.

Most of the focus is on medical marijuana and the Second Amendment where the use of one could prohibit the possession of the other and the debate and potential problems are immeasurable.
 

GA: Group takes guns in church case to federal appeals court

That battle continues to rage in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals where the gun-rights group GeorgiaCarry.org is hoping to persuade a three-judge panel that a Georgia law banning guns in "places of worship" interferes with the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of religion. Only Georgia, Mississippi, Arkansas and North Dakota prohibit firearms in churches, synagogues and mosques.

GeorgiaCarry.org took its case to federal appeals court after losing its previous case in federal court in Macon.

The three judges heard arguments Thursday about the law, raising legal and technical concerns about the lawsuit, but didn't immediately make a ruling.

The Second Amendment gives Americans the right to keep and bear arms. But it does not give the pro-gun lobby power to strip Ohioans of their right to know who has obtained concealed-carry permits.

State Rep. Joe Uecker, a Cincinnati- area Republican, National Rifle Association instructor, and former police officer, has introduced a bill to keep names of 60,000 Ohioans licensed to carry handguns secret unless journalists win court orders to gain access to them. This assault on public records must be rejected.

Gun enthusiasts, rejoice: Oregon has overturned a firearms ban and undermined the safety of its universities.

At the end of last month, the Oregon Court of Appeals lifted a longstanding firearms ban on university campuses when the three-judge panel decided only the state Legislature has the authority to regulate guns.

The Oregon Firearms Educational Foundation filed the lawsuit in response to the 2009 arrest of a Western Oregon University student for carrying a gun on campus. He had a concealed carry license, and the charge against him was later dropped.
 

Is Gun Control Racist?

If you browse the gun rights websites for only a few minutes, you're sure to find the claim: “Gun control is racist.” The statement seems absurd: African-Americans favor gun control at substantially higher rates than whites. The gun fatality rate for blacks far exceeds that for whites. And one of the few places you can easily find virulent racist literature is at a gun show. In what bizarro world is gun control racist?

Actually, the gun rights websites are on to something. As I discovered in researching my new book Gunfight: The Battle over the Right to Bear Arms in America, for much of our history, gun regulation has been tainted by the stains of racism and discrimination.

“President Obama told reporters yesterday that he has complete confidence in Eric Holder,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “From our perspective, it looks like the president has complete confidence that Holder will continue to stonewall Congress and cover up this mess. The President has been asked to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the attorney general. If he doesn’t, then someone else must act.”

Gottlieb said the Fast and Furious scandal is “far worse than Watergate, because nobody got killed as a result of Watergate.”
 

Balancing gun rights with public safety

Gun registration, the judges ruled, is “deeply enough rooted in our history to support the presumption” that it is constitutional. The ban on semiautomatic long guns is permissible, they concluded, because it does not prohibit possession of “the quintessential self-defense weapon” — the handgun. Those who wish to keep a long gun for hunting or self-defense may legally own a non-automatic rifle or shotgun. The judges also rightly deferred to the District’s concerns over safety in banning high-capacity ammunition clips that “pose a danger to innocent people and particularly to police officers.”
 

No Right to Bear Assault Weapons

The District’s firearms law defines “assault weapon” to include rifles like the AR-15, which the Supreme Court once called “the civilian version of the military’s M-16 rifle.” The appeals court suggested that the only place where assault weapons, which are designed to spray bullets at a rapid rate, are necessary for self-defense is on a battlefield or the equivalent for police. Anywhere else their presence is an invitation to mayhem and puts police officers and all around at high risk.
 

PA: Time to close loophole on gun permits

More than a year after it became a hot campaign issue in the race for Pennsylvania governor, it's even more critical that Harrisburg lawmakers close the so-called Florida loophole that lets Philadelphia gun owners skirt the city's strict handgun-carrying rules.

With a renewed push in Congress to nationalize concealed-weapon permits so that any state-issued handgun permit would be valid across the country, the public-safety stakes could loom even larger.

As many as 900 city residents - more per capita than in any other among the nation's 10 largest cities - are now packing heat in Philadelphia by virtue of mail-order permits issued by Florida.

White House documents directly link the Barack Obama administration with Operation Fast and Furious, where the government either sold or allowed guns to be sold to the Mexican drug cartels.
