Why does Summa Health System censor Internet access to gun info?

... "But to censor what a visitor can access because they are philosophically or politically opposed to ideas, and to set themselves up as arbiters of acceptability—and to prohibit that with which they disagree as a matter of corporate policy—is intolerant, arrogant, offensive and wrong, particularly when you consider most hospital visits are not exactly electives, that emergency facilities enjoy a special status within the diverse communities they’re supposed to serve, and that such policies can have the effect of impacting a visitor's livelihood." ...
 

NY Atty General blasts, misrepresents CCW Reciprocity bill

... "[New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman] is clearly categorizing law-abiding armed citizens in the same column as illegal gun traffickers and other criminals. Legally-armed, law-abiding citizens don’t carry zip-guns, or handguns from which serial numbers have been removed, or sawed-off shotguns, or stolen handguns."

"A citizen’s self-defense rights, same as his or her right to keep and bear arms, does not end at a state line. Schneiderman, as an officer of the court, should fully understand that 16 months after the McDonald Second Amendment ruling."

We’re Going On a Feral Hog Hunt

"The other day, I interviewed a couple of Arkansas ranch owners for an agricultural newspaper. During our chin wag, the owners revealed that they had a bit of a feral hog problem. Selflessly, I offered to apply my hog hunting skills to the infestation issue. To metaphorically paraphrase Henny Youngman, I was up so early this morning that the crack of dawn wasn’t safe. Before I loaded up my truck for the 50 minute drive to the ranch, I sighted-in my rifle for 100 yards on my private range. My boomstick for this hunt: an Ishapore 2A Enfield chambered in 7.62X51 (instead of .303). I’ve given it a synthetic stock, a scope mount and a Leupold scout scope. I knew she wouldn’t let me down . . ." ...

When I was a (relatively) young dad, it pleased me greatly to take my kids out trick or treating and stand in the dark autumn night behind them and watch the fun."

"Over the last several years, I’ve noticed the emergence of Halloween shoots at local gun clubs. They turn out to be big fun, too."

"Some clubs have pumpkin shoots. Blow hell outa those pulpy orange things. Its lotsa fun when you’re doing it… though it will never be any fun to clean up after." ...

"During the rise in popularity of the undead, there has also been a rise in the number of guns in America. The National Rifle Association estimates there are roughly 80 million to 90 million gun owners in the country, with gun sales continuing to grow at a steady pace. FBI background checks for gun purchases in 2009 increased by 30 percent over the previous year and large retail outlets have seen about a 40 percent increase in sales over the past few years. And across the country applications for concealed carry permits have also risen." ...

... "Many states’ licensing rules for concealed carry are shockingly lax. Florida, for example, issued 1,700 concealed carry permits to people with “criminal histories, arrest warrants, domestic violence injunctions and misdemeanor convictions for gun-related crimes.” Because Illinois is the only state that does not have a concealed carry law, the NRA’s bill would render out-of-state visitors immune to every state but Illinois’ licensing laws — so long as they obtained a license from a state that practically gives them away."

"Lest there be any doubt, this law has nothing whatsoever to do with the Second Amendment. ..." ...

"A far-reaching bill making its way through Congress has raised red flags from a large coalition of mayors, law enforcement, prosecutors, advocates against domestic violence and concerned citizens."

"The legislation threatens to trample the rights of state and local governments to keep their citizens safe through common-sense measures granting permits for those carrying concealed weapons." ...

"Today, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) placed a full-page ad in the Philadelphia Inquirer imploring Pennsylvania Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey to oppose any congressional legislation that would impose nationwide concealed carry reciprocity on the states. The ad asks Pennsylvania residents to call Casey and Toomey and tell them to voice their opposition to this dangerous idea. It is the second in a series of ads by CSGV, the first of which was published yesterday in the Boston Globe and directed at Senator Scott Brown." ...

KABA Note: Lying liars are telling lies again! Their ad claims that "domestic abusers" would be allowed to carry under H.R.822, but as most gunnies know, anyone convicted of even misdemeanor domestic violence lose their gun rights permanently.

"I find it astounding that the Congressional Oversight Committee and the Justice Department are in a pissing match over a single firearm. Representative Issa’s investigators have every reason to believe there were at least three ATF-enabled firearms at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. ... As today’s letter from Issa and Senator Grassley to the FBI reveals, it’s possible there were as many as five guns involved. And yet the Justice Department decided to make the number of ATF-enabled murder weapons an issue—accusing Issa of political pandering while continuing to claim that the FBI only found two Fast and Furious-related firearms at the scene. Ah yes, the FBI . . ." ...

Holder ... stated in sworn testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on May 3 that he had first heard about Operation Fast and Furious within 'the last few weeks.' Obama, on the other hand, had told CNN Espańol that not only had he not been aware of Fast and Furious, and the 'gunwalking' allegations surrounding that operation, but that he knew that Holder had been similarly uninvolved. This was about a month and a half before Holder's 'last few weeks' statement." ...

2) Who, are hot-tempered enough that if they had a gun at a meeting would be willing to commit murder.
3) Who are cool-headed enough that if they go to a meeting unarmed, lose their temper and decide to kill someone and go home to get their gun will, upon arriving home, they'll say to themselves "You know I think I'll just make myself a sandwich instead of going back and shooting up City Hall."

English common law contains a tradition, known as mens rea — Latin for 'a guilty mind' — which is intended to protect people from prosecution for unintentional offenses. According to the doctrine of mens rea, if you did not knowingly commit a crime, then you are not a criminal, and should not be treated like one."

"Every day brings us stories of citizens being prosecuted for actions no reasonable person could have suspected were crimes. Some of these events ... would make hilarious material for a surreal novel or film satirizing insane bureaucracy. Unfortunately, however, these cases are real, and not fiction, and the reality they exemplify is dangerous in the extreme." ...

Gun owners and pro-gun activists often point to the unfairness of California laws when it comes to obtaining a concealed carry permit, claiming that citizens in one county may obtain permits while a qualified citizen in a neighboring county cannot. They say the system is flawed and unreasonable. The only way that they can exercise their rights is by openly carrying their firearm in public or in their vehicle." ...
