Allowing guns in company parking lots.

One Idaho lawmaker is hoping more companies will allow it, and Monday the majority of lawmakers from the Idaho House of Representatives passed a bill that would do just that.

They're hoping to give companies immunity to any lawsuits, which involve their employees second amendment rights.

For a lot of people guns are a way of life.
 

ABC Ignores Evidence Guns Useful in Confronting Criminals

On Friday’s World News with Charles Gibson on ABC, substitute anchor Diane Sawyer previewed the same night’s special on guns in America, "If I Only Had a Gun," and, on World News, ran a report focusing on how challenging it is to react to a gunman when taken by surprise, even if one is armed. ABC News enlisted the services of police officers to train college students in firearm use and then had the students react to one of the officers as he pretended to be a crazed gunman and burst into a small lecture room. Sawyer informed viewers: "Our training is already more than almost half the states in the country require to carry a concealed weapon."

To college students and faculty across Missouri, the support of the House Bill 645 by the Missouri House of Representatives certainly comes as a frightening memorandum. Some of the legislators who supported the bill, which would lift a ban on carrying concealed weapons at state colleges and universities, believe that the massacres at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois would have been different or prevented if the students facing the catastrophe were carrying guns themselves.
 

TX: Allow students to carry concealed weapons

It seems as if every liberal in Texas is up in arms over the issue of concealed carry on campus.Liberals' reasons seem to be endless, but the one most often echoed by the masses is how dangerous it would be for students to be allowed to carry handguns.

Apparently, once a student is in possession of a legal weapon he will become a crazed killer, out to shoot anyone who disagrees with him. A concealed carry law will mean the end of safe campuses and it is likely that colleges across Texas will turn into war zones between rival students. Greeks vs. GDIs, whites vs. blacks, athletes vs. nerds; all will be armed and killing one another.

he Idaho House voted 50-19 today to give legal protections to employers who let workers keep guns in their cars.

Rep. Jeff Thompson, R-Idaho Falls, the floor sponsor, said the measure would encourage companies that don’t allow employees to have firearms on site, such as Cabela’s and Hewlett-Packard, to create policies to let workers do so.

The bill says employers cannot face civil damages for policies that “either specifically allow or (do) not prohibit the lawful storage of firearms” in vehicles on company property.
 

Armed America: Behind a broadening run on guns

What do an elderly Oklahoma homeowner, a Virginia Citizen Militia member, and a Texas airline pilot all have in common these days?

They're all part of America's massive gun-and-ammunition buying spree – a national arming-up effort that began before last year's election of President Obama and continues unabated... it has led to shortages of assault-style weapons, rising prices, and a broadening of gun culture to increasingly include older Americans, women and – gasp – liberals...

The causes are varied – from fears over crime, both rational and irrational, to the concern that 2nd Amendment rights will be curtailed...it presents a snapshot of a country that has historically turned to powder and balls in times of turmoil.

If the rash of mass shootings nationwide is leaving you thinking that there are too many guns in Buffalo and in America, just wait. Gun sales are booming nationwide — and in Erie County, applications for pistol permits are rolling in at nearly three times last year’s rate, the county clerk’s office reports.
 

'We want them registered'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, announced last week that she wants to register guns. Her next move will be to try to confiscate them.

The speaker picked a television show with a viewership of 4.6 million to float the Democrats' coming gun-control push. Questioned on ABC's "Good Morning America" about the prospect of new gun-control laws now that "it's a Democratic president, a Democratic House," she responded, "We don't want to take their guns away. We want them registered."

Politicians and bureaucrats routinely claim that registration helps solve crimes.

On Wednesday, April 8, 2009, Somalian pirates attempted to hijack the merchant ship Maersk Alabama. Its crew repelled the invaders, but their captain was captured and held hostage until rescued yesterday by the U.S. Navy. These are the basic facts of the story. But as usual, there were many facts lurking beneath the surface which were ignored by Old Media in their rush to titillate us with drama on the high seas. These missing facts teach an extremely important truth.

ABC’s 20/20 did a hit piece on the Second Amendment and armed citizens on Friday night. The show responded to the growing sentiment that “if I only had a gun,” maybe an armed citizen could make a difference in a spree shooting such as the incidents at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University. In reality, it ought to be called “if I had ONLY a gun.” Picking people without concealed carry permits to represent the armed citizen and rigging the scenario to ensure that they don’t defeat your narrative is propaganda, not journalism.

SC: Robbery suspect killed at AA meeting place

A robber who walked into the Columbia downtown Alcoholics Anonymous center, pulled out a gun and demanded money was killed in a burst of gunfire from an AA visitor’s gun, police said.
“Gimme what you got,” witnesses quoted the robber as saying when he entered the AA building...in Five Points about 10:48 p.m. Saturday. They said he brandished a .25-caliber handgun.
At that point, as one AA visitor dropped something on the floor — possibly his wallet — another AA visitor pulled out his own pistol and shot the robber “multiple times,” police said.

An autopsy Sunday showed bullets hit Helms in the abdomen, chest and neck, Watts said.
The AA visitor who fired his weapon and killed the suspect had a concealed weapons permit...

Ed.: If only someone there had a gun...oh, wait, an armed citizen did, and now the thug is dead.
 

Myths of armed self-defense: 'If I only had'...the truth

Aimed at undermining growing calls for arming concealed handgun permit-holders in schools and other allegedly “gun free” zones which attract active killers, ABC’s “20/20,” hit piece entitled “If I only had a gun” claimed that mere citizens are incapable of preventing mass murders like Virginia Tech. What “20/20” avoided mentioning is that the personality characteristics of active killers make them more vulnerable to armed intervention...

"If gun owners or designers are to be held to standards that have liabilities attached for noncompliance, why are these standards not known, both to them, and apparently, internally to ATF? Why can science apparently be trumped by bureaucratic panels? And why should political considerations play any role in these decisions whatsoever?"
 

TX: Two Texas Colleges Criticized Over Free Speech Issues

Some Tarrant County College students wanted to wear empty gun holsters to school because they wanted the right to carry concealed handguns on campus - with a license. A Young Conservatives student group at Lone Star College's Tomball campus wanted to hand out a tongue-in-cheek "Top-Ten Gun Safety Tips." At both schools, administrators told the groups to stop or risk campus sanctions.

"They're unusual in several respects. But most especially because they involve attempts to discuss in a perhaps insensitive, but basically humorous fashion the issue of guns on campus."

That's Bob O'Neil, the director of the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression. The Center gave annual "Muzzle Awards" to both schools.
 

Mexican Envoy Defends Claim That Most Guns in Mexico Come From U.S.

Auturo Sarukhan, the Mexican ambassador to the United States, repeated and defended his claim that 90 percent of the weapons intercepted in Mexico come from the U.S.

During an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday, Sarukhan said on the Arizona and Texas borders with Mexico alone, roughly 7,000 licenses for federal firearms had been granted.

"And a lot of the weapons that are being bought by the drug syndicates, either directly or through proxy purchases, are coming from those gun shops," he said.

Sarukhan isn't the only one to cite this myth. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, California Sen. Diane Feinstein and Willliam Hoover, assistant director for field operations at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms...
 

Banning 'assault weapons' to protect gun rights?

That's what Congressman Spencer Bachus (R-AL) tells us may be necessary.
He did not give the response some small city officials were hoping for when they asked if he would oppose all gun bans.

Instead, he said, it may be necessary to ban some assault weapons to keep hunting rifles and guns from being outlawed.
Such an answer may have earned Rep. Bachus good grades in the Neville Chamberlain School of Gun Rights Advocacy, but that school of thought has been discredited since--oh, about 1939 or so.
 

Civilian Marksmanship Program Running Low On Rifle Ammunition- Sets Purchase Limits

The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has set a purchase limit of 10 cans of .30-06 surplus ammunition per year this month. But, the ammunition supply may not last that long.

Buy it while its still available or before Barack Obama, Carolyn McCarthy, or Diane Feinstein step in. You must also show that you belong to a recognized shooting organization and proof of birth, such as a birth certificate. While we support selling Government surplus ammo to US citizens only, you have to show more proof of citizenship to buy ammo there than a recent presidential candidate had to show...

If ABC were really trying to make sure kids are playing in a safe environment, they'd be urging parents to ask if cars, water, stairs, ladders, matches, or household cleaners were present in the home before arranging playdates. All have higher death rates for kids than firearms.

Jiverly Wong fired at least 98 times in barely a minute when he burst into the American Civic Association in Binghamton this month. In that instant, he killed 13 people, wounded four and then shot himself to death. Among his victims was 72-year-old Roberta King, there teaching immigrants how to speak English. She was filling in for a friend. How had Wong been able to obtain the 9 mm Beretta and a .45-caliber handgun, apparently legally, that he used in the rampage, three of King's 10 children wanted to know over the weekend. "It shouldn't be that easy," one daughter, 42-year-old Ellen Brown, told The Journal News on Saturday as she sat with a brother and sister in her home in Scarsdale. They want tighter restrictions on gun ownership.

On April 6, three days after Jiverly Wong shot and killed himself and 13 others at a Binghamton immigrant center, the New York State Assembly debated several measures to strengthen gun control. Expected to be passed on April 29, some would make it harder for one person to obtain a gun for someone else who is ineligible to own it, or mandate that manufacturers make guns more child-resistant, or require gun dealers secure insurance for up to $1 million dollars for crimes committed with guns they legally sold, among other things. None of those provisions could have prevented the Binghamton rampage, but another headed to a vote may have, gun-control advocates say.
 

Obama abandons assault weapons ban

A new ban on assault-style weapons was part of Presidential candidate Barack Obama's platform...

That was then, this is now.

Obama and the Democrats appear to have lost all interest in a ban on assault weapons or any other legislation cleaning up loopholes in America's gun laws even though killings are on the rise and gun violence continues to escalate around the country.

White House officials admit support for a new ban isn't there and the President isn't willing to take on another losing battle with Congress.

Although information on banning assault style weapons remains on the White House web site, sources within the Democratic party say the issue is dead and unlikely to be revived in the near future.

A YOUNG driver has demanded an apology from police after being arrested and handcuffed because an officer believed his steering wheel lock was a gun.

He was then ordered to get out of the car and sit on the footpath while the officer demanded to know why there was a gun in the vehicle.

Mr Hastings said the policeman then called for backup while he sat shaking on the footpath, wondering how a gun could be in his car.

"As the officer walked away he said 'get a new steering wheel lock, it looks like a bloody gun'," he said.

Mr Hastings said the officer then replied he was "a lucky boy".

"He told me 'any other cop would have had you at gunpoint'."

Ed.: Seems the Australians get to hold the trophy for "Dumbest Anti-Gun Cop" for a while...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the constitution they don't like. — Alan Dershowitz
