Media bias exposed in NBC Cincinnati undercover piece on 'gun show loophole'

... "On Thursday the 15th, I was contacted by Eric Flack of WLWT Channel 5 News in Cincinnati. He told me he was doing a story on criminals obtaining guns at gun shows and wanted someone to come down and talk with them. We talked for several minutes and finally agreed that I would come down around 8PM for a studio interview. I had my apprehensions about doing this: The media rarely gives gun owners a fair shake, and sadly this was no exception. In a four minute report, I was on air for ten seconds at best." ...

"Over the years, manufacturers and sportsmen have helped raise well over $500,000 for the future of hunting in America through the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show's annual firearm and knife auction."

"The 2008 auction promises to be another exciting one. The items include a highly embellished Ruger rifle with a historic serial number, an elegant Pennsylvania longrifle and a finely crafted, expertly engraved folding knife."

"The 5,000,000th Ruger 10-22 was presented to the 4-H Shooting Sports Program by Ruger President Steve Sanetti to help raise support and awareness of this vital program that provides 300,000 youths shooting instruction and opportunity each year. ..." ...

"The authors of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution could have used a lesson in clarity, not to mention punctuation. ..." ...

"The U.S. Supreme Court announced this week it would review a gun case centering on that amendment."

"The court is poised to decide 'whether the Second Amendment means what it says,' according to Alan Gura, a lawyer in the case."

"But, what does it say?"

"Gura, who represents a man challenging the District of Columbia's gun restrictions, is certain he knows the answer to that."

"The amendment 'guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms,' ... That's also what the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said in striking down part of the District's gun law." ...
 

Second-Amendment Showdown

"The Supreme Court has agreed to take up a case that will affect millions of Americans and could also have an impact on the 2008 elections. That case, Parker v. D.C., should settle the decades-old argument whether the right "to keep and bear arms" of the Constitution's Second Amendment is an individual right -- that all Americans enjoy -- or only a collective right that states may regulate freely. Legal, historical and even empirical reasons all command a decision that recognizes the Second Amendment guarantee as an individual right." ...
 

High court can defend rights of an individual

"Should a law-abiding citizen be allowed to keep a gun in his own home?"

"That's the fundamental question that the U.S. Supreme Court will be considering in March, when justices hear arguments in the first Second Amendment case to come before the high court since 1939. Justices will be ruling on a case involving a Washington, D.C., man whose desire to keep his gun at home ran afoul of the district's strict prohibition against handguns."

"At its core, the question before the court is this: Does the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantee the right of an individual to keep a gun in his home, or was it intended as a way for the states to maintain militias? A close look at the sentence itself does not bring clarity." ...

"For all the argument over the meaning of the Second Amendment - the 'right to bear arms' - there is one place the debate has not occurred for almost 70 years: the U.S. Supreme Court."

"The long-deferred showdown has arrived now that the high court has agreed to review the District of Columbia's 31-year-old ban on the ownership of handguns."

"This constitutional review is long overdue." ...

"In seemingly less time than it takes to say 'ready on the firing line,' the U.S. Supreme Court will be embroiled in the firearms culture wars as it rules on what the Second Amendment really means when it comes to gun ownership. Six residents of the District of Columbia have filed suit to lift the ban on keeping handguns in their homes. Briefs are to be filed by January, arguments are set for March, a decision is expected by June." ...

"Reaction to the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to hear a case that could have a profound effect on the rights of Americans to own firearms was immediate, emotional and, come to think about it, pretty obvious." ...

"'If the right to bear arms isn't worth saving, then no part (of the U.S. Constitution) is worth saving,' said Richard Pearson, the executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association on Wednesday. ..."

"Said Chris Boyster, the downstate coordinator of the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence ... 'We're just hoping that the court follows precedent and reconfirms the view that ownership of firearms can be regulated. It's the way courts have consistently ruled, up until now.'" ...

Submitter's Note: I can only assume that the racists at ICHV disagreed with Brown v. Board of Education since SCOTUS disagreed with "the way courts [had] consistently ruled".

"Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has enlisted American martial artist and action star Chuck Norris for a tongue-in-cheek advert."

"It can be seen on the Arkansas governor's Web site, where the 'Chuck Norris Approved' ad plays off the wildly believed superman-style Norris facts that began popping up all over the Internet in 2005."

"It’s also been seeded on to YouTube where it's received more than almost 600,000 views." ...

"Norris explains in the ad, 'Mike Huckabee is a lifelong hunter, who'll protect our Second Amendment rights. Mike's a principled, authentic conservative.'" ...

"Here's another reason why it's important that we appoint judges who use the Constitution as more than a set of suggestions."

"Today, the Supreme Court decided to hear the case of District of Columbia v. Heller."

"Six plaintiffs from Washington, D.C. challenged the provisions of the D.C. Code that prohibited them from owning or carrying a handgun. They argued that the rules were an unconstitutional abridgment of their Second Amendment rights. ..." ...

"The District argued, as many gun-control advocates do, that these words only guarantee a collective 'right' to bear arms while serving the government. The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected this approach ..." ...

"When Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson walks down the aisles of a gun show Saturday in Charleston, the game he's hunting won't be hard to spot."

"The former senator and actor is looking to differentiate himself from rivals Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney - and use his appeal as a 'country boy from Tennessee' who knows NASCAR and hunting to portray the city slickers as out of step with this early voting state's residents."

"There is little doubt gun rights are a tough issue for the front of the GOP pack." ...

"Give Gov. Ed Rendell credit for guts, if nothing else."

"He didn't just call for the state to enact stronger gun control laws, he went before the state House to testify on behalf of the idea."

"They say tinkering with Social Security is a 'third rail' issue that can end a politician’s career. But advocating gun control actually does lose politicians elections — particularly Democratic politicians."

"Rendell, of course, doesn't have to face the voters again, but he also doesn’t really need to stir up an issue that plays to Republican strengths so decisively when he has so many other legislative goals to accomplish." ...

"...It is beyond controversy, because the testimony of all experience in all ages and countries is, that man's individual feelings are stronger than his sympathetic emotions; hence the maxim that "self-preservation is the first law of nature." To breathe is not more natural than to love first and preferentially one's self, one's own wife, one's own children, one's own kindred, one's own country. If this were not so, what would become of self-improvement, of family, and of patriotism? The assertion of selfhood is inseparable from human nature. It is the gift of God, and therefore must be beneficial in its exercise. Only when it is abused does it degenerate into selfishness..."

"The family of a 92-year-old woman fatally shot during a botched drug raid has filed a lawsuit against the city and police on the first anniversary of the killing." ...

"Plainclothes narcotics officers burst into Johnston's home Nov. 21, 2006, using a no-knock warrant. Johnston was killed during the raid in a hail of nearly 40 police gunshots."

"Prosecutors said the officers obtained the warrant by falsely telling a judge that an informant confirmed drug dealing at the home. The informant later told federal investigators he was told by police to concoct the tale." ...

Submitter's Note: These adrenalin junkie cops need to think long and hard about their "no-knock" raids.

"An Idaho family is thankful its dog is alive this holiday, after a Teton County sheriff's deputy shot the animal three times in its front yard."

"'I'm here to put him down. I'm here to kill him,' is what the officer said last week, according to the pet's owner, Leo Barboza." ...

"The family has reportedly hired a local attorney, Josh Garner."

"The station quoted Garner as saying, 'If the facts are as they appear, the deputy's behavior is disgusting, troublesome and appalling. The officer needs to be held responsible.'"

"Several sources indicated the officer remains on duty in Teton County."

"A third death in five weeks linked to the use of Taser stun guns by police in Canada on Thursday prompted a ministerial inquiry in easternmost Nova Scotia province."

"Justice Minister Cecil Clarke ordered the review into the use of Tasers in Nova Scotia, he said, following the death of a 45-year-old man who died in police custody Wednesday, hours after being zapped."

"'I have ordered Police Services officials in my department to immediately begin a review of policies and procedures regarding Taser use in Nova Scotia' by law enforcement, corrections staff and sheriffs, Clarke said in a statement." ...

Submitter's Note: Non-lethal?? Hardly. A torture tool? Most assuredly.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of men and women. — Thomas Paine, The Crisis, Intro. (Dec. 1776).
