Riding With Kennedy Worse than Hunting With Cheney, Group Says

"A gun rights group on Tuesday ridiculed Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) for admitting he was under the influence of at least two prescription drugs when he crashed his car on Capitol Hill."

"'I'd rather go quail hunting with Dick Cheney than get in a car being driven by a Kennedy,' said Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) founder Alan M. Gottlieb. 'As it stands right now, I think Congress should consider mandating drug testing of its members before they vote on legislation that would take away any of our civil rights.'" ...

"Gottlieb said that under federal law, 18 USG 922(G)(3), now that Kennedy has admitted he has a drug problem, it is probably illegal for him to own a gun." ...
 

Stand Your Ground Movement, Part IV: Legislation

"Citizens For A Safer Minnesota have a most mistaken notion of that state's adoption of the Stand Your Ground movement. In their April 4th, 2006 press release, Citizens For A Safer Minnesota referred to the Florida birthplace of that movement and cited three incidents where people died in the commission of a crime. The thrust of the position is that the law promotes murder as the recent experience with its new legislation." ...

"Mistaken again, Mrs. Brady announces that the people of Florida are somehow identical to the criminal shooters, the hot-heads, the aggressive who shouldn't even be in possession of any weapon, madam. The acts Brady cites are likely criminal in nature, and not at all likely to meet a standard of self-defense. ..." ...

"Handling a gun stirs a hormonal reaction in men that primes them for aggression, new research suggests."

"Psychologists at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., enrolled 30 male students in what they described as a taste study. The researchers took saliva samples from the students and measured testosterone levels."

"... on the table were pieces of paper and either the board game Mouse Trap or a large handgun. Their instructions: Take apart the game or the gun and write directions for assembly and disassembly."

"Fifteen minutes later, the psychologists measured saliva testosterone again and found that the levels had spiked in men who had handled the gun but had stayed steady in those working with the board game." ...

"I was perusing the May 2006 print edition of the American Rifleman when an advertisement for Barrett Firearms Manufacturing (featured on page 66) caught my eye. ... what caught my attention and, upon further reflection my admiration, was a tiny small-print blurb at the bottom corner of the ad. This inkblot read as follows:"

"'The California Legislature has banned the .50 BMG from the good citizens of the state of California , violating their rights and the constitution of our republic. Therefore, Barrett will not sell to or service any California government agencies.'"

"That was indeed refreshing! Barrett was willing to forgo any sort of government business ... because of the state of California's laws ..." ...

"A woman in northeast Houston has turned the tables on an intruder overnight. Now he's dead, and she's answering questions from police."

"It happened around 3am at a home on Bender near Kurt. Police say the woman was home with her three-year-old son when someone reportedly knocked on the door."

"The woman asked the person to identify himself but he didn't answer. She told him to go away since she didn't know him. That's when two men apparently forced their way in the home."

"The men were armed with a knife and a pellet gun. The homeowner struggled with the intruders, but managed to get to the kitchen, where she keeps her gun."

"The woman shot one of the men. He was dead on the scene." ...

Submitter's Note: For future reference, when someone knocks on your door at 3AM, you should probably have your gun in your hand when you answer.

"In the latest case, the grand jury said Fred James Perry ... should not be prosecuted for fatally shooting suspected burglar Timothy Darby ..."

"But the grand jury also returned no indictment on that charge." ...

"'We presented to the grand jury on both a felon in possession of a firearm and the homicide, and they returned a no bill (didn't indict) on both charges,' Hinds County District Attorney Faye Peterson said. ..." ...

"The day of the incident, two men pounded on his door ..."

"'They were knocking pretty hard and I thought, 'Well, who is that?' he said. 'Whoever it is, I'll tell them 'Don't come beating on my door like that.'"

"Ken said he opened the door, but not before grabbing his pistol. However, he said he wasn't the only one with a gun. The suspects allegedly were armed with a 20-gauge shotgun."

"'And I hit it and knocked the barrel up and it went off,' Ken said." ...

"Ken fired his gun three times. The first shot hit a wall and the second hit the robber." ...

"Dan Ritchie carries a 3.5 grade point average. He's a three-sport athlete. His warm smile and engaging personality make him one of the more popular students at Phoenix High School."

"But two seconds of foolishness earned Ritchie a suspension from the classroom and a pink slip from the Pirates' baseball team ..."

"Ritchie, 18, has some advice for fellow students who own air guns: Leave them at home."

"On the afternoon of April 21, in the Talent Middle School parking lot, Ritchie fired his air gun in the vicinity of a female student. The projectiles - plastic BBs - ricocheted off a car and no harm was done, but Ritchie had committed a major transgression as far as school policy goes." ...

"Here are updates on a handful of notable items working their way through the General Assembly:" ...

"To end on a high note, kudos to Rep. Ed Staback, D-Lackawanna and Wayne, for introducing House Bill 2563, which would all law enforcement officers and citizens with a valid firearms license to carry a gun for personal defense while hunting during non-firearms seasons."

"Staback's bill makes it clear that the gun cannot be used to harvest game. However, it's nice to see Staback and the bill's 42 co-sponsors recognize that a sportsman's Second Amendment rights don't end when he clips a hunting license onto the back of his jacket."

"New Yorkers, at least some of them, don't feel that properly supervised 14- and 15-year-olds should be allowed to hunt big game. It might be considered crass of me to note here that New York is the only state in the nation to feel this way - we are the only state to limit big game hunting to 16-year-olds and older."

"Our neighbors in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine all have a lower minimum age and Vermont is one of 26 states that has no minimum age at all.

"So long as properly trained and supervised 14- and 15-year-old hunters are lumped by misinformed legislators with gun-toting street thugs that terrorize our metropolitan areas, we can expect no change." ...

"In 2000, when Ron McNesby first ran for sheriff, he pledged to reduce the number of deputy-related shootings."

"He succeeded."

"... Since McNesby became sheriff, deputy-related shooting fatalities have declined to five."

"But now, McNesby ... is facing growing criticism stemming from the use of Taser stun guns." ...

"Keep in mind that Tasers aren't water pistols."

"They shouldn't be used to punish suspects who may raise a deputy's ire or when the situation can be handled with good, old-fashioned handcuffs."

"Nor should they be used on civilian witnesses, as former Deputy Charles Dix is accused of doing at least twice. The Sheriff's Office just agreed to pay out $400,000 of your tax dollars to settle those claims." ...

... "The Sako Model 75 holds the distinction of being the only commercially built centerfire rifle to be offered in five different action lengths, from the extremely short No. 1 action for the .223 Remington to the No. V action, which is long enough to handle full-length belted magnums such as the .300 Weatherby Magnum and .375 H&H Magnum."

"The new SM action is about the same length as the No. III action, which is of the correct length for the .308 Winchester, but it was designed specifically for the .300 WSM and other short, beltless magnums. Regardless of which action length you choose, you will find a 70-degree bolt lift, compliments of three locking lugs, along with an extremely smooth bolt travel." ...
