"Note that Undersheriff McCabe says that Angel made threats, not that Angel is accused of making threats. I find it odd that if a fellow robs a bank, is caught on camera doing so, says his first & last name clearly into the microphone & leaves his drivers license behind he's still usually referred to as a suspect, yet a vocal supporter of the Right to Arms is presumed to have done whatever he's accused of."

"We have counted the cost of this contest, and find nothing so dreadful as voluntary slavery. - Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them, if we basely entail hereditary bondage upon them."

"But some stats can make you wonder: today we find out that the Northern Rockies territories of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming are among the five states that have more gun dealers than gas stations. (Oregon and Alaska are the other two)"

"Part of me loves this stat: it means our priorities are on hunting, not aimless driving. It means we have fewer roads, perhaps, and more wilderness."

"Or it just means we've got more people with itchy trigger fingers. I, of course, would never suggest this to any of my well-armed neighbors."

"The Senate yesterday passed a bill that would eliminate the responsibility to retreat from the threat of attack. The measure, which is supported by gun-ownership groups and opposed by law enforcement, would also broaden the scenarios where people could use deadly force to defend themselves against an attack."

"The bill is similar to a 'Stand Your Ground' law enacted in Florida last year. The attorney general's office and the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police opposed the idea. They said there's no need for the bill in New Hampshire and warned that it would disrupt the balance in the current law between the right to protection and the need to prevent unnecessary killings."

"Sometimes playing can turn deadly. If people with a concealed weapon or a police officer sees the weapon and senses danger, they can legally shoot, officials said."
 

OH: Ohio gunslingers take aim at tweaking concealed-carry

"THEY'RE a determined bunch. I'll give them that. They managed to persuade a hapless majority at the Statehouse that Ohioans should be packing concealed heat, and they easily nudged a spineless governor to acquiesce. They made concealed-carry the law in a state that was never up in arms - so to speak - about the need to carry hidden guns. And they did it with a promise they'd be back for more."

"Like a nagging headache that won't go away, the gunslingers of the state are again pushing pliable politicians in Columbus to make Ohio's onerous concealed-carry law even more so. They could care less that consistent majorities of Ohioans have opposed the notion of carrying concealed handguns in public, according to several Ohio polls conducted over the years by the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Cincinnati."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
...If a man lies under oath or procures the lie of another under oath, if he perjures himself or suborns perjury, he is guilty under the statute law. Under the higher law, under the great law of morality and righteousness, he is precisely as guilty if, instead of lying in a court, he lies in a newspaper or on the stump; and in all probability, the evil effects of his conduct are infinitely more widespread and more pernicious. — Teddy Roosevelt - May 12, 1900
