CO: "Make My Day" Law Could Include Businesses
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
The bill pending in the state legislature would protect business owners from crimimnal [sic] prosecution and civil liability if they use physical or deadly force against someone who makes an "uninvited entry" and creates a "reasonable fear of imminent death or serious bodily injury" in owners, employees and customers.

Dane Knowels, head of the Pikes Peak Firearms Coalition, favors any legislation protecting a citizen's right to self-defense. "It's not just about firearms," he explains, "but against baseball bats or fists, even. To relieve the victim of the worry of being prosecuted simply for defending themselves in different situations."

4th article down.

"Martial law has been declared through presidential powers and war powers act, and some citizens have refused to give up their weapons. They have taken over two of the buildings in Kingsville. The police cannot handle it. So you call these guys in. They show up and they zap everybody, take all the weapons, and let the local P.D. clean it up."

FW Note: Further evidence that NO was just a "dry run", and that this government iron is still in the fire.

Members of the Putnam County Fish and Game Association met last night to advocate for legislation that would protect the identity of handgun permit holders. "I'm here to listen to the fears of law-abiding citizens over publication of the names," said Assemblyman Greg Ball, R-Carmel, a pistol-registration opponent who attended the meeting of about 25 sportsmen and women at the association's clubhouse off Drewville Road. Ball was referring to a Dec. 10 report in The Journal News on weaknesses in record keeping of pistol permits that included an online list of more than 30,000 Westchester and Rockland gun owners.

People will be able to trade guns for gift cards or debit-type cards when Buffalo conducts a weapons buyback program on May 19 at sites throughout the city. Mayor Byron W. Brown expects to raise $150,000 to pay for the anti-crime effort, much of it from corporate donors. Erie County Medical Center became the first contributor when Chief Executive Officer Michael A. Young brought a ceremonial check for $10,000 to City Hall Friday.

A woman home alone with her two children in Morgan County's Coalfield community fired a gun three times Friday morning to protect herself and her family. Shortly after Suzanne Carson's husband left for work, Carson said she went back to bed with her 3-year old daughter. When she heard a noise, she got up to check on her 4-year old son, who was sleeping down the hallway. "As I stood here, I could hear someone at the back door." Carson said she saw the face of a young man trying to open her back door. Carson went for a gun, with only one thought. "The first thing actually was my kids," Carson said. She thought, "Ok, I'm going to have to do something to protect them."
 

CA: Firearms Industry Takes Aim at Micro-Stamping Bill

The National Sports Shooting Foundation (NSSF), the firearm industry's trade association, commenting on Assembly Member Mike Feuer's (D-West Hollywood) introduction yesterday of legislation to mandate "firearms micro-stamping," said similar legislation failed last year and vowed to oppose any legislation to mandate such a flawed and unreliable technology that can so easily be defeated. Assembly Member Feuer's predecessor, Paul Koretz, introduced AB 352 last session, but the bill failed passage. These bills would require manufacturers to micro-laser engrave on the tip of the firing pin the gun's make, model and serial number so, in theory, that information would be imprinted on any cartridge casing fired in the gun.

Gun maker Kimber Manufacturing has withdrawn its application to be included in a tax-break program, as it eyes an expansion that worried neighbors in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, city officials said. The Yonkers Empire Zone board had approved Kimber's application to be included in the financial incentive zone Dec. 19. But the City Council delayed a vote on the action last month because of neighbors' concerns.

When Daniel Hedger opens the doors of the National Guard Armory on the Southwestside this morning for the last day of his gun show, anyone who walks in will be able to buy a firearm without undergoing a background check. Licensed gun dealers are required to run such checks before signing off on a purchase, but other private sellers at the show are under no obligation to do so before selling their weapons. State Rep. David Orentlicher, D-Indianapolis, says that's a loophole that needs to be closed. He has introduced House Bill 1090, which would require background checks for all gun show purchases to screen out convicted felons while also limiting buyers to one handgun every 30 days.

In a "shoot first, ask questions later" approach to personal safety, state lawmakers are weighing a bill that would give Texans the right to use deadly force as a first resort when they feel their safety is threatened. The measure, which is in committee, is an early hit at the statehouse: Twenty-seven of 31 state senators have signed on as co-sponsors. In the House, 100 of 150 members support the bill.

According to Federal laws, it was illegal for a licensed gun dealer to sell Sulejman Talovic, 18, the shooter in the Salt Lake City Mall tragedy earlier this week, a handgun or handgun ammunition. "You can buy long guns at 18. That's not a oblem. The handgun he shouldn't have had, so obviously we're going to look at where he got that gun," Lori Dyer of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives (ATF) told the Associated Press on Tuesday. As of today -- four full days after the tragic Monday night shooting -- authorities have not indicated where the guns came from.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair announced plans Sunday to overhaul gun laws after three teenage boys were shot dead in south London this month, prompting a national debate about guns and gangs among youths. The age at which the mandatory five-year sentence for carrying a gun can be imposed should be reduced to 17 from 21, Blair said in an interview with British Broadcasting Corp. television. Blair ordered the gun law review to help police deal with Britain's inner-city gang culture. Blair said he was also considering other proposals put forward by the Home Office and the Metropolitan Police including giving police new powers to monitor the homes of people suspected of possessing and using firearms.

Hunting With Zumbo: Assault Rifles For Hunters?

As I write this, I'm hunting coyotes in Wyoming with Eddie Stevenson, PR Manager for Remington Arms, Greg Dennison, who is senior research engineer for Remington, and several writers. We're testing Remington's brand new .17 cal Spitfire bullet on coyotes.

I must be living in a vacuum. The guides on our hunt tell me that the use of AR and AK rifles have a rapidly growing following among hunters, especially prairie dog hunters. I had no clue. Only once in my life have I ever seen anyone using one of these firearms.

I call them "assault" rifles, which may upset some people. Excuse me, maybe I'm a traditionalist, but I see no place for these weapons among our hunting fraternity. I'll go so far as to call them "terrorist" rifles.

Under Tennessee's self-defense statute, a person in a home is justified in using force, sometimes deadly, to stop an intruder because there is a presumption that the assailant is intent on harming anyone inside the house.

A bill filed by state Rep. Ulysses Jones and state Sen. Reginald Tate, both Memphis Democrats, would extend that protection to people "both inside or outside" a vehicle who believe they are about to become a homicide, rape, robbery or carjacking victim.

The Violence Policy Center blames guns on this revelation, not the mind-set of the individual. Scotland had the same divergent idea and outlawed all guns. Knives are now the weapon of choice and they are working on outlawing them. The nonsense goes on.

Police are looking for a man reportedly shot by a one-armed, 75-year-old Geneva County woman during a burglary attempt. At around 11:00PM Wednesday night, Catherine Tate says her burglar alarm indicated someone trying to get inside her bait shop. Tate says she found a man trying to get inside and refused to stop. "When I heard the office alarm I came and grabbed my flashlight and gun. Then I came and saw him by the door. I shot him with this, a 38-caliber gun. I hit him. Yeah, I know I hit him," said Tate.

"Rather than writing any needless commentary. It will become plain that the evidence which follows is more than able to speak for itself;..."

"...Arms are Necessary, & if then, it is Necessary Now. Arms are a Resource to which We shall be forced, a Resource afforded Us by God & Nature..."

"...which is preparing to destroy those rights, which God, nature, and compact, have given to America..."

"...we have only to exert ourselves, and to make Use of the Means which God & Nature have given us to defend ourselves..."

The bill makes it nearly impossible for a criminal or a criminal’s family to press criminal charges against a property owner who uses force, including deadly force, when protecting property.

“It is absurd that anyone can face legal consequences for defending their family from an intruder,” Sen. Mario Gallegos of District 6 said. “This bill will close the loophole and prevent anyone from filing unjust lawsuits to seek monetary damages or other compensation while infringing on our rights.”
