Oviedo police think two people may have been followed home and robbed after they left a local gun range. The man and his friend were robbed in the driveway of a home on Lullwater Drive in the Kingsbridge West subdivision on Sunday. ...
"As far back as I can remember, this is the first time we've had anybody robbed for their guns at gunpoint," said Det. Adam Egert, Oviedo Police Department....
The stolen semiautomatic handguns are a .45 caliber Kimber, worth $1,200, and a .40-caliber Sigsauer, which gun shops sell for about $600.

COMMENT: With a .40 and a .45, what were they at the range practicing for, an invasion from Cuba?
They obviously need to obtain and carefully study Jeff Cooper's classic "Principles of Personal Defense."

The Kitsap County Sheriff's Office says a deputy will not face criminal charges for accidentally shooting a man with her gun instead of her Taser.

Sheriff Steve Boyer said Friday he received word that the Attorney General's Office had declined to file charges against Deputy Tiffany Dobbins. Dobbins shot the mentally distraught man in the leg last June 22th after he refused to climb down from a tree. Boyer says Dobbins has been reassigned to administrative work and the sheriff's office will now conduct an internal investigation of the shooting.

Submitter O. Milic writes: "This one is classic. Bullets flying everywhere, killing innocent, citizens organize armed patrols,
peace and quiet. Governement [sic] declares this is not
acceptable (armed citizens, of course) and that it will deal with it.
Funny thing is that this is ultra-liberal BBC which wants to spin the story as anti-militia. I love Brazil!"

Henry Terry had all the right accessories to impersonate a police officer, prosecutors say: authentic-looking uniforms, a car with lights and sirens, a pair of handcuffs. But Terry took it a step further, setting up a personal police station where he kept records of possible crimes and sometimes interrogated "suspects" who were handcuffed to a chair, said Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota.

Second Amendment Freedoms Aided the Civil Rights Movement
Submitted by: Anonymous

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
Prominent and indispensable among our rights is the "right of the people to keep and bear arms." Second Amendment rights, never to be infringed, were posited by our nation's founders as among the most essential tenets of the free and just republic they sought to establish.

The empowering freedom of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms is particularly timely during Black History Month, for its role in the victory of civil rights for all is sorely overlooked.

As Gun Owners of America President Larry Platt shared with me this summer and wrote in 2004 regarding the Deacons, the history of gun control appears to have been one of controlling people rather than reducing violence.

Two men who are members of Gideons International, the Christian organization that is famous for, among other ministries, placing Bibles in motels and giving them to children, have been arrested after trying to hand out Bibles on a public sidewalk in Florida, according to a law firm.

Officials with the Alliance Defense Fund have confirmed they will be representing Anthony Mirto and Ernest Simpson, who were arrested, booked into jail and charged with trespassing.

"Officials cannot use fear of arrest as a means of bullying law-abiding Christians into silence," ADF Senior Legal Counsel David Cortman said. "These men broke no laws when they decided to communicate their message on a public sidewalk."

'Unspeak' and the Gun Prohibitionists
Submitted by: Anonymous

A completely partisan argument can be packed into a sound bite. This is Unspeak.
Unspeak represents an attempt by politicians, interest groups, and business corporations to say something without saying it, without getting into an argument and so having to provide justification. At the same time, it tries to unspeak – in the sense of erasing or silencing – any possible opposing point of view by laying a claim right at the start to only one way of looking at a problem. As an Unspeak phrase becomes a widely used term of public debate, it saturates the mind with one viewpoint while simultaneously making an opposing view ever more difficult to enunciate.

Not everyone is thrilled about the appointment of Alexander "Pete" Grannis as commissioner of the New York Department of Environmental Conservation. The New York Rifle and Pistol Association is officially opposing the nomination of Grannis. Among their concerns is that they claim he lacks the background for such a position because he is a lawyer, a long-time Assembly member and he has shown consistent support toward gun control laws.

Oregon and California require background checks when people buy guns at private shows, but Washington doesn't -- making the state a "de facto gun center for the region," says freshman Sen. Rodney Tom. The Bellevue Democrat wants to change that with a bill that calls for only licensed dealers to handle transactions at gun shows and run background checks on all buyers. Washington now has a five-day waiting period for handgun purchases, but not at gun shows. The bill also defines a gun show as any place or event where three or more people gather to display, sell, lease or transfer firearms to the public or where 10 or more firearms are offered.

"We go through very extensive background checks and a screening process to ensure suitability for police work," he said.

This is the second officer-involved shooting of 2007. The first occurred on New Year's Day, when four Las Vegas police officers fired at Ivan Ariza at a condominium complex at 2700 Rainbow Blvd., near Smoke Ranch Road.

Witnesses and police said Ariza asked police to shoot him and lunged at officers with a knife. The 31-year-old died at the scene.

Giuliani says the Second Amendment must be protected against unreasonable restrictions and favors states’ rights on gun laws.

Rudy Giuliani addressed a potentially troublesome issue with conservative voters, saying his policies as mayor to get handguns off the street helped reduce crime in New York. "I used gun control as mayor," he said at a news conference Saturday during a swing through California. But "I understand the Second Amendment. I understand the right to bear arms." He said what he did as mayor would have no effect on hunting.
