Buffalo Bills' Running Back Marshawn Lynch was arrested last Wednesday near Los Angeles, and has been charged with carrying a concealed firearm.
Culver City Police say they were patrolling the Fox Hills area of Culver City when they noticed three men sitting in a Mercedes Benz.
After speaking to the men, they discovered one of men had a loaded gun. They later determined that gun belonged to Lynch.
Lynch was booked and later released on $35,000 bail...
the charge could be a felony or a misdemeanor.
Lynch has a court date for 04/02. His attorney says Lynch is not making any statements, based on his advice.

This is not the first time Lynch has had a run in with police. Lynch was involved in a hit and run in downtown Buffalo last May.

For clarification, SB 147 will fully restore our right to carry inside the West Virginia State Capitol with the very narrowly-tailored exception of a specific part of the building that houses our Supreme Court and its offices.

Here we go again. In yet another case of over reactive, one-size-fits-all, "zero-tolerance," zero-common sense enforcement, Marie Morrow, an honors student and drill-team commander in the Young Marines, was recently expelled from school. Her crime? She left three rifle shaped drill team props in the back of her car at Cherokee Trail High School in Aurora, Colo. Colorado law mandates expulsion for any student found with a "dangerous weapon" on school grounds, which includes "a firearm facsimile that could reasonably be mistaken for an actual firearm."
 

TN: Case for gun-permit listings trumps emotional opposition

Misunderstandings with people who carry guns can turn ugly.

This past week it has been ugly at the newspaper, after passionate gun owners latched onto three very wrong ideas about why The Commercial Appeal's Web site now lists all those in Tennessee who have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

The Tennessee Firearms Association and others have fanned the frenzy against our Web site posting of the permit-to-carry list. Pro-gun groups orchestrated a protest campaign that has spread nationwide. By late last week, Commercial Appeal executives were receiving as many as 600 e-mails a day, along with dozens of phone calls at home, at work and on their cell phones. Maps to their houses, with ominous warnings, had been posted online.

The 2nd Amendment may provide a right to bear arms, but finding a safe place to teach or practice shooting has become more difficult as rural areas are developed, according to gun enthusiasts from around the state who gathered in Eau Claire this weekend for the state convention of the National Rifle Association.
Once-rural shooting ranges and gun clubs are now being surrounded by neighbors who complain about the noise and sometimes the safety of nearby ranges, said Steve Gibbs, an Eau Claire attorney with expertise in shooting ranges. "I grew up on Lake Wissota. I used to be able to ride my bike three miles and shoot," Gibbs said. "Now that area is a subdivision."
Eau Claire County has private clubs with shooting ranges and trap ranges...
 

Kid's Dirt Bikes Banned Because They Contain Lead
Submitted by: motoboy

I don’t know if you’ve been following this, but there is a law coming into effect on Feb 10th 2009 that effectively bans the sale of a huge number of children’s products, including dirt bikes. Honda and Yamaha have both sent letters to their dealers telling them to remove the kid’s bikes from display, and to cease selling them. Even private sales will break the law.

The Govt. had a knee jerk reaction and made a law that bans lead in quantities of 600ppm or more… not just in paint, but in ANYTHING that a kid of 12 or under might use.
--
If dirt bikes are banned for containing lead can .22 bullets be far behind?
 

NY: Gillibrand removes guns from under bed

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) has moved the two rifles that she kept under the bed to protect her upstate New York home, her spokesman said Monday.

"Given that the location of the guns has been disclosed, they have been moved for security reasons," Gillibrand's spokesman Matt Canter said.

She relocated the guns over the weekend while upstate to endorse Democrat Scott Murphy in the March 31 election to replace her in the 20th District, he said.

He also said Gillibrand, mother of a 5-year-old and an infant, kept the ammunition separate from the empty guns, and then later called to add that the rifles were locked in a case while stored under the bed. She had refused to describe her gun safety measures.

Canada: The New Look At Gun Violence In BC Needs To Tread Softly

There are 212,316 licensed firearms owners in BC, who have licensed 874,496 registered firearms. By contrast in the first half of 2008 the Tactical Analysis unit recorded a total of 2,537 firearms seizures in Canada. Of that number 1,393 (55%) were crime guns, meaning they had the serial number filed off, were used in the commission of a crime, came into the country illegally or had been altered from replica’s to work.

Those statistics clearly point out that the average long gun owner and for that matter the recreational shooters that were forced to register their guns during the gun registry have not now or ever been the problem with guns in Canada...Ontario has suggested that they would like to see a total ban on hand guns...

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ)-- Bringing a gun or other weapons to the State Capitol Complex isn't allowed..
Preston County Senator Dave Sypolt brought Bill 147 before the Senate last week. It proposes repealing the prohibition on bringing deadly weapons onto the State Capitol Complex. "You're going to have that knee jerk reaction oh gosh he wants crazies running around the capitol with guns...That's not the intent at all."

What the Senator wants is for certified gun owners to at least have the right to keep their weapons in their vehicles while doing business at the capitol.

Sypolt says that at face value the bill may seem drastic, but it's simply aimed at making things easier for those who legally exercise their rights to bear arms.
 

Canada: Band-Aid plan will do little to stop the carnage

Premier Gordon Campbell's hastily cobbled together plan for tackling criminal gangs in B.C. is a Band-Aid instead of much-needed public policy surgery.

The addition of 10 new prosecutors and 168 new police officers over the next two years will do little to stem the gun violence...or cripple the criminal organizations behind it.
... the increases announced barely keep pace with the growth of the gang menace...

What do we get? A damage-control press conference and a great wringing of hands about the need for changes to the Criminal Code and other federal legislation.

Instead of announcing arrests, our politicians trumpet plans for a junket to Ottawa to discuss amendments to the Criminal Code. Good grief.

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who argues her pro-gun stance aims to protect hunters' rights and the Second Amendment, last week said she and her husband, Jonathan, keep two rifles under their bed to protect their upstate home.
Gillibrand said neither she nor her husband is a hunter, and in a general discussion of gun control said, "If I want to protect my family, if I want to have a weapon in the home, that should be my right."
The mother of two young children has taken "gun safety procedures to ensure family safety,"...
Gillibrand's guns are rifles, her chief of staff Jess Fassler said..., and she won one of them in a raffle at a county fair while campaigning. He said New York does not require anyone to register rifles.
 

Is the Supreme Court About to Kill Off the Exclusionary Rule?

In 1961, in Mapp v. Ohio, the Supreme Court....adopted the exclusionary rule as a national standard... it underscored that it was more important to compel the nation’s police forces to obey the law...The exclusionary rule has always had critics. Long before Mapp, Judge Benjamin Cardozo said it allowed the criminal to go free “because the constable has blundered.” In recent years, it has become Exhibit A for those who argue that defendants get off on technicalities... the Supreme Court in Mapp rightly insisted that the Constitution must not be trampled in the process. “Nothing can destroy a government more quickly,” the court noted, “than its failure to observe its own laws, or worse, its disregard of the charter of its own existence.”

I am extremely grateful the police arrived within three to four minutes. Unfortunately crime is escalating and we cannot expect them to be everywhere.

 

Survival Guns for Women

No doubt there are a few women that know more about guns then I do. One the other hand most tend to become rather intermediated when coming into contact with anything resembling a firearm. When faced with the prospect of choosing a handgun for self-defense they become lost within the maze of choices available.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - The Commercial Appeal responded Sunday to gun owners who are outraged over a very public and legal list of gun permits in the Mid-South.

After a firestorm of protests over the gun permit database, maintained on the Commercial Appeal's website, editor Chris Peck responded in an editorial Sunday, saying "our posted list of permit holders for concealed weapons has less information about individuals than the phone book, your voter registration form or the credit card you use to buy dinner at a restaurant."
