DETROIT (WWJ) – The men and women of the Detroit Police Department believe the city is too dangerous to enter, and they want citizens to know it.

Detroit Police Officer Association (DPOA) Attorney Donato Iorio said officers are holding the “Enter At Your Own Risk” rally at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in front of Comerica Park to remind the public that the officers are overworked, understaffed, and at times, fearful for their lives
 

NY: All the wrong lessons

That article quickly elicited a personal attack from the esteemed publication "The Truth About Guns." Every fact and premise of my Times Union commentary was dissected and rejected with the overarching observation that one would expect such lack of "restraint" and "evenhandedness" from a former adviser to "Client Number 9."

The NRA and publications such as the "The Truth About Guns" are very busy right now, assassinating character and creating diversions from stories as national as Trayvon Martin and James Holmes, the Aurora shooter, to as local as Gary Cota and Nicholas Naumkin, the boy killed in Wilton.
 

Gun microstamping could close American factories

I understand that gun owners’ rights and the Second Amendment haven’t really been a touchstone in this year’s elections, but that doesn’t mean that the battle isn’t still being waged. One story out this month hits pretty close to home for me, both figuratively and literally. It involves the Remington Arms plant located in Ilion, a village in upstate New York. They are currently battling a pending move by the state government which would force them to put laser etched microstamps on the firing pins of all their weapons, driving costs through the roof.

Absolute Security, who employs the guards, declined to comment.

East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III said there is no action for his office to take at this time.

"It is my understanding that the police investigation has concluded that there will be no arrest and that the shooting was justified," he said.

Ed.: Question for the lawyers: If there is no SYG hearing because nobody was charged, are they still immune from civil suits?

NC: Commissioners confirm gun rights

The Johnston County Board of Commissioners clearly communicated their intent to broaden the use of firearms in Johnston by their actions at the September meeting.

I am referring specifically to their decision to remove any reference to firearms from the noise ordinance (Johnston County Code of Ordinance – Sec. 12-32). That decision had the additional effect of nullifying the reference to the noise ordinance contained in the Discharge of Firearms Ordinance (Johnston County Code of Ordinance – Sec. 16-3). The consequence of these actions is a powerful demonstration that the Board of Commissioners supports the Second Amendment and the rights of Johnston County residents to use firearms safely, legally and reasonably.

Presumably by now, some students of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are carrying concealed handguns to class.

The CU system was on the losing end of a legal battle decided by the Colorado Supreme Court, which held in March that state-supported colleges and universities were not exempt from a state law allowing persons with permits to carry concealed weapons to do so in most state buildings.
 

NY: Court Rules New York Shooting Victim Can Sue Gun Maker

A Buffalo man who was shot nearly a decade ago can sue the manufacturer, the distributor and the dealer of the semi-automatic pistol used to shoot him, a New York state appeals court ruled on Friday.

Attorneys for Daniel Williams, who was shot in 2003 when he was in high school, argued that Ohio-based manufacturer Beemiller and the distributor, MKS Supply, violated federal law by knowingly supplying guns to irresponsible dealers.

The defendants said they cannot be sued because of the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, a 2005 law that shields firearm manufacturers and sellers from liability for harm caused by the criminal misuse of their non-defective products.
 

Fast and Furious scandal should end Obama’s presidency

It’s something that has recently been swept under the rug, the Obama administration not wanting the damaging details to be known publicly. Then last week, an investigative report by the Spanish-speaking TV station Univision blew this scandal wide open. I’m talking about Fast and Furious.

No, this is not a movie about street racing. You won’t find Vin Diesel anywhere in this story. This is about the United States government directly contributing to the drug violence in Mexico, which has occasionally spilled over onto the north side of the border.
 

GA: Will stand your ground law aid in prisoner's freedom?

Georgia has a so-called stand your ground law on the books that allows people to use deadly force if their lives are in danger. But John McNeil was charged anyway, nine months after the shooting. The case has since prompted calls from the NAACP and other groups for such laws to apply to all citizens, regardless of race. McNeil is black, and the man he shot was white. But white neighbors also testified about being intimidated by the man, who built their houses.

Ed.: Sigh. GA didn't have a SYG law when McNeil killed that man.

Friends and fellow gun enthusiasts Dave Wurst, Tim Parker and Mike Okel always figured they would eventually open a gun store of their own.

But eventually came sooner than any of them expected.

Idle chatter, conversations they would have at gun shows, turned into something more serious in January when Wurst learned that he was going to be downsized.

Along with his partners, both of whom owned businesses of their own, earlier this year Wurst joined about one third of one percent of adult Americans who open a new business each month.

The ISRA is urging Congressman Bob Dold (R-10) to decline an award bestowed upon him by a Chicago-based gun ban group. That award, given by the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (ICHV), designates Dold as legislative advocate of the year. The ICHV is widely known for its extremist views opposing self defense, hunting and private firearm ownership.

“There are a lot of people out there who think that it’s wrong to shoot another person EVEN in self-defense… sadly, those people are in the government and criminal justice system,” Streete wrote.

“In America today, you are given a fake right to protect yourself,” he continued. “See, people who stand up for their property or families in the heat of the moment aren’t wrong… but they are immediately put into the legal system where they have to defend their rights to defend themselves.”

Rodney Davis has received what may be the most cherished endorsement in the 13th Congressional District race: that of the National Rifle Association.

Davis, a Taylorville Republican, and Democrat David Gill of Bloomington, along with independent John Hartman of Edwardsville, all have described themselves to The News-Gazette as opponents of more gun control.
 

PA: New Gun Policy At Slippery Rock Strips Students of Constitutional Right

Slippery Rock University has recently published a new anti-weapon policy to their students.

In the RockPride Online newsletter information released on October 5th it is stated that, “The policy came about as a result of a mandate from the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education board of governors to develop a system-wide, consistent approach to weapons on campus.”

The PA State System of Higher Education blatantly disregards the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution with the implementation of these policies. In the United States of America, the 2nd Amendment provides that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
 

With a 3-D Printer, Building a Gun With the Push of a Button

It has long been possible to make a gun at home. But what happens when it no longer takes knowledge and skill to build one?

It won’t be long before a felon, unable to buy a gun legally, can print one at home. Teenagers could make them in their bedroom while their parents think they are “playing on their computer.” I’m talking about a fully functional gun, where the schematic is downloaded free from the Internet and built on a 3-D printer, all with the click of a button.

Hit print, walk away, and a few hours later, you have a firearm. There are no background checks. No age limits. No serial numbers etched on the barrel or sales receipts to track the gun.

In the pitch black of a November morning, three of us were getting ready to go deer hunting. I was still inside when I heard the unmistakable sound of a rifle report just outside the house.

One of the other hunters had accidentally discharged a rifle while loading up. Nobody was injured, but I had no idea where the bullet went.

Sobering.

"We're OK with the commanding officer being able to inquire," said Andrew Arulanandam, a spokesman for the NRA, "but they can't confiscate."

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., who sponsored the original 2011 restrictions, said he would support the new amendment "if it clears up any confusion."
 

Give us our guns: Allow concealed-carry on campus

Over 20 shootings have taken place on “gun-free” campuses, since 2001. Could many of the resulting deaths have been prevented had these campuses allowed permitted students to properly defend themselves?

While the great majority of colleges and universities across the country have bans on allowing concealed-carry on campus, many do not. Presently, over 200 campuses across six states allow some form of carry, the most recent being the University of Colorado after a prolonged legal battle with Students for Concealed Carry ending early this fall.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mills
