DeWine reverses decision to ignore improved law enforcement training

... "It is admittedly unknown if such training, had it been seriously adopted and conducted, would have mattered in the Crawford and Rice cases, or if the specific circumstances leading to their shootings would have shown Ohio law regarding openly carrying arms to be irrelevant. Would it have made a difference if DeWine (and Cordray and Rogers before him) had acted on the documented warnings? That is a question for attorneys for family survivors to pursue, and if they do, it will be up to courts to decide." ...

... "Todayís Washington Times on-line is running a story about the nearly-three-minute message that was produced by a San Francisco company called Sleeper 13 productions. The video was reportedly released more than a week ago, but is just now getting widespread attention. The companyís Facebook page is loaded with nearly 200 comments, some going so far as to suggest the producers should face criminal charges if something bad happens because of the video."

"That wasnít lost on CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, who observed, 'The message of this video is so monumentally stupid that if any youth does something like this after watching it, the producers should face charges. If someone is hurt, they should face both criminal and civil liability.'"...

"There is only one reason to be a defender of the Second Amendment, the same reason the Framers had when they wrote it: fear of an overbearing government. As Thomas Jefferson said, 'The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.'"

"Of course, those opposed to gun ownership will respond that there is no tyranny in government. The answer to that is governments all over the world within the last 100 years have killed more than 262 million of their own citizens. See R.J. Rummel, Death By Government (Transaction, 1997)." ...

"When I buy a new gun, it has to fulfill a specific purpose that is not yet fulfilled by a gun I already own. This is purely for cost reasons since Iím not exactly made out of money; otherwise Iím pretty sure Iíd have several, overflowing gun safes. Previously, the only shotgun I owned was an antique double barreled 12-gauge that I inherited, but itís so beat up and rusty Iím still afraid to shoot it. I needed something reliable to be my home defense cannon and something else with a longer barrel for bird hunting and skeet shooting. So . . ." ...

"Following intense legislative fights over gun safety legislation in 2013, the fight over gun policy exploded into the cultural world in 2014. And in that sphere, the National Rifle Association and the gun lobby are losing."

"The NRA is losing because it's forced to defend -- lest it offend its most hardcore activists -- gun extremists who openly carry assault weapons into shops and restaurants as a form of political protest. The gun industry, and the NRA by proxy, is losing as mainstream America begins to recognize the gun industry's trade group is less focused on hunting and sporting and more devoted to backing the NRA's extreme no-compromise agenda. ..." ...

"The biggest non-surprise of Saturdayís high-profile double police slaying in New York is that the gunman not only had a history of arrests and had spent time behind bars, he also reportedly had mental problems, according to the New York Post."

"That newspaper and Fox News both are reporting that the handgun used by [the shooter] to kill the two officers, a stainless steel or nickel-finished Taurus PT92 semiauto, has so far been traced to a Georgia pawn shop. The gun was sold in 1996 to someone else, and it is not yet known how [the shooter] got his hands on it."...

"Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry's announcement that he would not seek re-election to a fourth term as governor generated speculation that he would campaign for the 2016 GOP nomination. Perry previously ran in 2012, eventually dropping out of the race and endorsing Republican candidate Mitt Romney." ...

"A handful of state legislators from across the country gathered at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to announce the creation of 'American State Legislators for Gun Violence Prevention' or ASLGVP."

"The new group, which claims to be non-partisan, will work to push new gun restrictions at the state level."

"But the coalition has one major problem Ė they will not let anyone know who they are."

"ASLGVP boasts having 200 members from all 50 states but the group will not release a list of their membership, due to a fear of 'political backlash.' So, outside of the eight members that participated in the inaugural press conference, no one knows who is or is not a member of this group. ..." ...

"Yesterday Seacoastonline posted a story about Democrats in New Hampshire who insist on pushing more gun control next legislative session. This is despite New Hampshire being the 'Safest State in America' as well as being rated the state with the 'Best Quality of Life' by the OECD for having the lowest crime rate in the country. These facts donít matter to the deranged gun control crowd."

"Elaine Andrews-Ahearn, a Democrat who pushed gun control last year and failed, even with a Democratic controlled House was absolutely crushed in her re-election bid by her Republican opponent. Yet sheís still talking about pushing gun control in a state with the lowest crime rate in the country." ...

... "McAuliffe also claims to support the Second Amendment. Gun-control proponents usually do. But calling for new laws to infringe on gun rights sure is a funny way to show it. Thatís like ... insisting youíre a big fan of free speech while advocating 'common-sense limits on what people can say.'"

"The common-sense claim invites skepticism for another reason: the connection between the proposals and what theyíre supposed to address. The aim behind gun control is to prevent certain horrible crimes, such as school massacres ... or to reduce violent crime generally. Revoking concealed-carry permits when the permit holders miss child-support payments, for example, seems completely untethered to public safety." ...

"Gun owners with a state permit can now carry a concealed firearm inside all Gilbert public buildings, reversing a previous policy that made such deadly weapons illegal."

"But those without a concealed-carry weapon permit can be asked by a police officer to place their firearms in a gun locker, according to an ordinance approved last week by the Gilbert Council."

"The town council updated the code so it reflects a 2006 state law, which requires public establishments to offer gun lockers in places where individuals without permits are banned from carrying their weapons. Firearms had previously been banned in all public buildings, but the code did not specify for them to placed in a locker." ...

"Do blacks trust police more than whites do? Given the anger over events in Ferguson and New York City, the very question seems absurd. But it is not. Behind the polls and demonstrations, there is evidence that blacks trust police at least as much as whites do." ...

"... Data compiled by the Bureau of Justice Statistics from 2008 to 2012 shows that blacks are actually more likely than whites to report violent crimes to the police ó 9 percentage points more likely than whites (54 percent to 45 percent)."

"Blacks consistently report violent crimes at a higher rate than whites do. That applies to all income groups as well as for victims living in urban and suburban areas." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. --JOHN F. KENNEDY
