"The disclosure came as attorneys for both sides were preparing for a hearing in federal court on a motion filed earlier by SAF and NRA to hold the city in contempt. Plaintiffs' attorneys traveled to a location within the New Orleans city limits where they viewed more than 1,000 firearms that were being stored." ...

"The Christian Science Monitor hypothesizes on the decline of gun dealers, and like most anti-freedom rags apparently has no clue." ...

"'... changes in regulations in the 1990s that, among other things, required federally licensed gun dealers to comply with zoning laws and report certain information to local police.'"

"TRANSLATION: Red tape. Lots of it. It puts a huge strain on mom-and-pop businesses and, in some cases, even forces them to shut down."

"'... And while gun-control advocates acknowledge there's no empirical evidence, they believe the reduction was one element that added to the dramatic decline in crime during the past decade.'"

"If you're like me, when you think of Walther you think of guns like the classic Walther PPK and the newer Model P99 service pistol. Walther ... recently threw us all a curve when the company introduced the innovative G22 carbine."

"The Walther G22 is a magazine-fed semiautomatic carbine chambered for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge. The G22 is the first Walther .22 rifle to ever utilize the 'Bullpup' design that moves the action back into the rear of the riflestock. This design makes for a very compact carbine that makes use of a 20-inch barrel but with an overall length of only 29.5 inches. The G22's interesting features don't stop there." ...

A Stephens County High School student faces expulsion after an unloaded 9mm pistol was found in his book bag.

The sheriff's office says the 15-year-old was arrested yesterday and is being held at the Regional Youth Detention Center in Gainesville on Juvenile Court charges of bringing a firearm onto school property.

Principal George Sanders said that if a school tribunal decides that the student violated the state's zero-tolerance policy, "there is a minimum one-year expulsion."

Sanders says the gun was found after another student provided information about it. A school press release said the boy "did not make any threatening statements or any inflammatory gestures in connection with the gun."

"Next time a driver cuts you off on I-285, think twice about rude gestures and nasty glares. He may feel threatened and shoot you."

"The state Legislature wants to give that irate driver what amounts to a license to kill. The 'shoot first, ask questions later' bill reflects a national campaign by the National Rifle Association to sanction legal gunplay in the streets. The law encourages the use of deadly force, which should always be the last resort."

"... 'I think this bill has the potential to turn our streets into the OK Corral because it could be misinterpreted, misused and abused,' said DeKalb District Attorney Gwen Keyes Fleming." ...

VA: Guns OK in the glove compartment

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Licensed gun owners can now keep a firearm locked in the glove compartment or some other locked container inside their car without a concealed weapons permit under provision adopted by the legislature last week.

If stopped by police, the gun owner would have to notify them of the gun. Before, a gun had to be in plain sight, in line with Virginia's nonconcealed carry law, unless the owner had a permit.

Del. Clay Athey Jr. (R-Front Royal), who sponsored the change, said he could have a gun at his home and his temporary hotel room during the legislative session, but he noted the law was “gray” when it came to carrying a gun in his car. He said it was a “reasonable” extension of the Second Amendment.

Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
