"The best thing avid outdoorsmen can do for the sport of hunting is to attack the stereotype that guns are only used for evil purposes, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told the National Wild Turkey Federation's annual convention yesterday."

"Scalia, an enthusiastic hunter, delivered the keynote address at a banquet last night at Gaylord Opryland Hotel & Convention Center."

"'The attitude of people associating guns with nothing but crime, that is what has to be changed,' Scalia told a group of about 2,000 at the convention's awards banquet."

"'I grew up at a time when people were not afraid of people with firearms …' Scalia said. He told the group that ... he was part of a rifle team at the military school he attended." ...

"In the debate over Delaware's concealed-carry gun permits, don't forget the difference between men and women."

"The average man can physically overpower the average woman; this is a biological fact. The vast majority of violent crimes are committed by men. We women should not have to depend on the men in our lives for protection, nor can we expect police to be in all places at all times."

"My ability to have a gun for self-defense is central to my concept of freedom and safety in a hostile world. Anyone who tries to take that right is trying to take the only tool that makes me the physical equal of a man." ...

"Investigators believe a domestic dispute led to the shooting at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church about 11 a.m., said Second Deputy Police Chief James Tate."

"An Alamo homeowner could face criminal charges after he fired six shots at a would-be intruder while chasing him down a residential street, Contra Costa Sheriff's Office investigators said Friday."

"'The law is very clear about when peace officers can use deadly force and when the public can use deadly force,' said Capt. Jon Cox, sheriff's patrol commander. '(Both) have to demonstrate that there is a threat to personal safety in order to use lethal force.'"

"The resident ... startled an intruder trying to open his front door about 4 a.m Thursday. He then shot at him as he ran to a get-away car down the block, deputies said."

"'It would appear, just based on the information we have that this person was not a threat,' Cox said. 'He was running away.'" ...

"Brendan 'Dan' McKown, the most seriously injured of the Tacoma Mall shooting victims, disputed Dominick Sergio Maldonado’s claim that he shot McKown in self-defense."

"'My gun was out of sight, and he had a gun out,' said McKown, a stand-up comic who worked as a store manager at the mall. 'When he brought his weapon up on me, that’s when I drew. Admittedly, I had my hand on my gun.'"

"Besides, he said, it’s 'kind of hard to claim self-defense when you’re shooting up the mall.'"

"Indeed, prosecutors say Maldonado would have no self-defense claim, even if his version of events were true. Legally, if someone is the first aggressor, self-defense isn’t an issue." ...

"At a recent fundraiser for a drug-treatment center in Addison, state Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka publicly confessed to a few addictions of her own."

"Coffee and nicotine top the list, she told the crowd. And, added the unnaturally red redhead, 'My hair is chemically dependent.'" ...

"... Now, Topinka has an additional, higher-profile role, as the standard-bearer for the party's establishment in the March 21 primary for governor." ...

"On gun rights, she earned an 'A' grade from the National Rifle Association. She still opposes a ban on assault weapons and limits on the number of handguns a person can buy in a month, saying laws on the books are sufficient." ...

"Hoosiers could obtain lifetime gun permits and new protections when using deadly force under legislation being considered by the General Assembly."

"A third, and more controversial, firearms measure prohibiting employers from banning guns from their parking lots was taken out of a bill last week and appears dead."

"Several of the proposals are being pushed by the National Rifle Association in other states as well, including Kentucky, Michigan and Florida."

"The Columbus Dispatch had this interesting story over the weekend: Governor threatens to veto gun bill"

"Unless two major provisions being pushed by gun advocates are taken out of a bill that would revise Ohio’s conceal carry law, Gov. Bob Taft won’t sign it."

"Supporters say the bill will close loopholes and clean up the state’s nearly 2-year-old gun law, and it should pass out of a House committee by the end of March, said Rep. Robert E. Latta, R-Bowling Green, the committee chairman."

"But something big has happened between the time when Ohioans were cringing at the idea that Bob Taft might threaten another concealed carry veto and today -- two years after the law has been overwhelmingly successful." ...

"A push by Eliot Spitzer's gubernatorial running mate, David Paterson, to restrict police officers from using deadly physical force in the line of fire has opened a rift between the Harlem state senator and the state attorney general."

"Yesterday, Mr. Spitzer, the leading Democratic candidate for governor, disavowed a bill introduced by Mr. Paterson that would prohibit police officers from shooting suspects with the intent to kill and would hold the officers liable for second-degree manslaughter, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 15 years." ...
 

LA: Louisiana law permissive on deadly force

"The bystander who killed a businessman embroiled in a brawl with a Baton Rouge police officer may be aided by one of the nation’s most permissive justifiable homicide laws, legal scholars and others say."

"Louisiana allows the use of deadly force in self-defense or defense of others to 'prevent a violent or forcible felony involving danger to life or great bodily harm.' People also can shoot intruders inside a home, business or car even if there is no such threat — and need not make any effort to retreat."

"That’s different from most states, which sanction physical force to prevent imminent physical danger and deadly force only when there is reasonable fear of 'serious physical injury or death' — and the person in danger is otherwise unable to first safely retreat." ...
 

WY: Silencers in the woods?

"It was called Senate File 79, a proposed law that would have allowed hunters to carry automatic weapons such as machine guns into the woods. And to equip those guns with Godfather-style silencers."

"Which conjured up some negative images. People using the silenced guns for poaching of wildlife, for example. And, of course, the image of the Soprano family vacationing in Wyoming, being insulted by an elk and having it whacked."

"However, the proposal went on to say that while hunters - who make up more than half the population in this wildlife-rich state of just more than 500,000 people - would be allowed to have the automatic weapons and silencers, it would remain illegal to actually use them for hunting." ...

"The state of South Dakota just became a little more free as their governor signed into law two bills restoring rights to law-abiding gun owners."

"HB 1134 removes the duty to retreat when the victim of a violent attack. HB 1173 limits the authority of state agencies to restrict concealed carry by pistol permit holders."

"Ohio lawmakers would do well to heed the example set by the myriad of states, including South Dakota, who are realizing that restricting the right to self-defense does nothing to deter lawlessness by those who have no inclination to follow the law in the first place." ...

"The opening of the 2006 session of the Legislature is more than a week away, but there's already a clear frontrunner for the worst bill of the year -- a proposal to charge businesses with a felony if they forbid employees to store firearms in their cars while at work."

"Many workplaces in Florida, including Walt Disney World and Publix grocery stores, prohibit employees from bringing guns onto company grounds, including parking lots."

"These policies rankle officials at the National Rifle Association, who regard parking-lot bans as violations of the Second Amendment. They're pushing lawmakers in Florida and other states to block businesses from establishing no-gun policies." ...

"A bill that would block the release of the names of people who apply for concealed pistol permits won final approval Thursday in the South Dakota Legislature."

"The House agreed to changes made by the Senate in the bill."

"The bill seeks to close a loophole in a 2005 law that prohibits the secretary of state from releasing lists of people who have permits to carry concealed weapons. However, the list of applicants has remained available, and bill that would make it illegal to reveal the names of people who have applied for those permits."

"Michigan employers would face civil suits if they discriminate against gun-owning workers or job applicants under a new proposal intended to restrict bosses' power over employees' off-the-job activities."

"The proposal reflects a concern among some lawmakers that employers are interfering with legal lifestyle and personal choices of their workers, such as smoking, obesity and gun ownership."

"The bill would prohibit employers from using legal firearm ownership or possession of a weapons license as the basis for negative decisions on recruitment, hiring, firing or compensation." ...

"We generally support gun rights, but we also support the right of private property owners, including employers, to keep firearms off that property if they so desire."

"The National Rifle Association thinks that when employers tell employees they can't bring guns to work, even if they leave them in the car in the parking lots, that violates employees' constitutional right to bear arms. The powerful lobbying group is pushing bills in the Florida Legislature (HB 129 and SB 206) that would allow employees to keep guns locked in their cars during working hours, whether employers like it or not. Similar laws have passed in five states and been rejected in five. They are under consideration in seven more." ...

Submitter's Note: Property owners absolutely have a right to 'control gun use', but a gun in the car is not in use.

The burglars struck sometime between 11.45am and 3pm on Tuesday at Merthyr Dyfan Road.
