"The hearing ended without Superior Court Judge James Warren ruling on the validity of Proposition H, which was approved by 58 percent of the voters Nov. 8 and was challenged by the NRA, three other organizations and seven gun owners the next day."

"Warren asked the city to delay enforcement until he rules, which could be as late as mid-June. Deputy City Attorney Wayne Snodgrass said city officials would probably accept some postponement."
 

CA: NRA urges judge to overturn San Francisco handgun ban

"The National Rifle Association urged a state judge Thursday to overturn an ordinance voters overwhelmingly approved in November banning handgun possession and firearm sales."

"Chuck Michel, an attorney for the NRA and gun enthusiasts suing to repeal the law, said he was 'sympathetic with the victims of gun violence' but said lawful weapon owners 'are part of the solution, and not part of the problem.' "

"Without addressing the Second Amendment dispute over whether individuals have a right to bear arms, Michel said a local government cannot ban weapons because the California Legislature allows their sale and possession, and has almost exclusive authority to regulate them."
 

Is self-defense law vigilante justice?

"These new measures would push the boundaries beyond the self-defense measures already on the books. ...The 'Stand Your Ground' laws would allow people to defend themselves with deadly force even in public places when they perceive a life-threatening situation for themselves or others, and they would not be held accountable in criminal or civil court even if bystanders are injured."

"Laws putting more judgment in an individual's hands stem from people's increased concern about crime in their communities. Proponents say it helps shift the debate from gun control to crime control, and that these laws are part of the rugged individualism of Americans."
 

Another dimwit with no clue: reply to Robbie Schwartz

"Let me give you a clue, Mr. Schwartz: you have NO right not to live in fear. Read through the entire Constitution and show me where you find that specific, clearly-delineated right."

"Now let me explain something about the concept of a right. A right is something that every human being has. It exists simultaneously and equally among all humans. It is only a true right if it belongs to every human being equally and imposes no obligation on anyone else to supply you with that right, provide tools to exercise that right or curtail that right to fit another's need. That is the explanation of a true right, and that is how the Founding fathers defined it based on their study of Blackstone, Bastiat and the like."
 

H.R. 4547, Part III: For The Non-Gun Owners In America

"Well, you’ve probably heard all the arguments about the Second Amendment’s being a civil right and so forth, or that in a time of War as we are in now, preparedness and wariness (armed) is advisable."

"And it’s worth noting that more and more states are loosening their latitude not about guns, but about how they are carried and how and when they are to be used. It's called the Standing Your Ground movement, and it imbues the doctrine with the concept of a presumption of innocence on the part of the defender. This is not new: it is something American all along and should be restored nationwide."

"Police Chief Gary J. Gemme has revoked the gun permit of a Shrewsbury man who successfully appealed the chief’s earlier suspension of the gun permit in court." ...

"In a Sept. 14 letter notifying Mr. Holden of the license suspension, Chief Gemme said Mr. Holden had been deemed an unsuitable person to carry a firearm based on the alleged Sept. 10 incident that led to his arrest and the related charge then pending against him in court." ...

"Judge Brennan said in his ruling that although the suspension, based on the initial arrest, was justified, the chief’s refusal to reinstate the permit after dismissal of the assault and battery charge was 'arbitrary and capricious.' " ...

"On Feb. 14, Mr. Holden’s lawyer, James S. Slavin, filed a complaint for contempt against Chief Gemme, claiming the chief failed to comply with the court order to reinstate the license. A hearing on the contempt allegation was held yesterday."

"GUN owners in the Tamworth region have rejected as 'rubbish' claims that the State government is softening its stance on gun control."

"And while it is believed the district has the highest number of registered firearms per capita in NSW, waiting times for those buying or licensing guns run into several months, and red tape and background checks of prospective firearm owners are extensive."

"The Oxley Local Area Command – centred on Tamworth and spreading out to Manilla, Gunnedah, Werris Creek and Walcha – is the largest gun licensing area in the State, and interest in gun clubs continues to rise."

"The newly proposed law allowing any legal firearm owner to carry a loaded firearm in a car is long past due. Many people need to carry a firearm because of a recent threat but fail to do so because they can't wait for, or afford, the permit."

"Currently, anyone with a legal firearm can carry it unloaded in an enclosed container, but what good is it then? ..."

"Criminals don't obey gun laws, so gun restrictions only disarm the citizens we should be worried about the least - the law-abiding kind. Utahns shouldn't have to pay money for, or be put on, a permit registry simply because they choose to exercise their right to protect themselves. ..."

"The Virginia House of Delegates has overwhelmingly (88 to 11) approved a bill to rein in those doctors who think their medical degree qualifies them as gun control nannies to their patients. HB 1531 is now working its way through the senate."

"Today's Virginian-Pilot reports on the bill in the condescending tone of 1990s gun control advocates. The article quotes quotes Dr. Leslie Ellwood of the Virginia chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics as saying 'We don't have an opinion or issue an opinion on guns. We don't say it is a bad thing to have around children.' "

"Not so. The American Academy of Pediatrics does indeed have an opinion on guns--they should be banned. ..."
