"The Washington State Supreme Court has issued a precedent-setting opinion in the case of State v. Christopher William Sieyes which holds that the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights 'applies to the states via the Fourteenth Amendment'"

"This outstanding opinion was authored by Justice Richard B. Sanders, a Supreme Court veteran who clearly understands the history of both the state and federal constitutional right to keep and bear arms."

"Perhaps what makes the Sanders opinion so remarkable is that it places the Washington Supreme Court ahead of the United States Supreme Court in recognition that the U.S. Constitution’s recognition of the right to keep and bear arms applies to all citizens ..." ...

"A lot of positive change is coming down for second amendment and freedom lovers, and it's all good for the country. In America, the anti-gun movement utilitzes fear, emotion, frauds and even some armtwisting. The second amendment liberty movement takes a different tone altogether, promoting a deeper understanding of how liberty and being armed protect each other with a deep belief in due process. I praise one of several news items this week because they get it all so clearly that they advance that very understanding for the layman." ...

"But don't credit a president whose campaign rhetoric ... instilled so much apprehension and a run on guns and ammo. No, credit the nation's great laboratories -- the states -- for checkmating any gun-grabbing long before the administration moved ..."

"Two weeks after a professor was charged with fatally shooting three colleagues at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, the Alabama Senate passed legislation Thursday that would make it easier for people to keep guns in their cars."

"At the urging of the [NRA], Democratic Sen. Roger Bedford of Russellville got the Senate to vote 26-2 for his bill."

"'This vote is about one thing only: Do you support Second Amendment rights?' Bedford told the Senate."

"His bill would ban businesses from having policies that prohibit legal firearms from being transported to the businesses' parking lots. But the guns must be locked out of sight in the glove box or trunk of private vehicles." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Three of four potential replacements for liberal Indiana senator are pro-gun rights.

Democratic Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana is leaving office. Gun Owners of America rated his voting record an 'F' and the NRA, a 'D-'.

Three of four potential replacements for Bayh, including two Democratic congressmen, have solid pro-gun rights voting records. Former Senator Dan Coats, a Republican who has been named as a potential replacement, had a horrible voting record on Second Amendment issues when he was in office.

As Guns Rights Examiner David Codrea wrote in his Feb.16 break-down of Bayh's potential successors: 'Just Say No -- to Coats.'"

Those who are not, should be, because his legislative history shows him to be far from friendly to gun rights, as indicated by his 2005 vote against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, to bar frivolous, predatory lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

"National Parks are reserves that display America's natural beauty to the public. Some people find them places of solitude, where they can go sightseeing, vacation, and camp out in the wild. A visit to a national park is considerably cheaper than the conventional family-of-four vacation. But while protecting your wallet, you might also want to protect yourself."

"Being alone or even with a small group out in the wild can be frightening. Considering the many violent events that have and can occur in national parks, and also to honor current rights according to visitors' home state, Congress recently lifted a ban on loaded guns in national parks which lasted for two decades. This new law took effect Feb. 22." ...
