SAF Calls For ‘Waiting Periods’ On Press Following Fatal Newsweek Debacle

"More than 115 dead or injured, and now a lame 'apology' from Newsweek; maybe it is time for the press to accept waiting periods before exercising its First Amendment rights in the same way the press has backed waiting periods on law-abiding Americans before exercising their Second Amendment rights."

"That’s the observation from the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) now that Newsweek has acknowledged its report about the desecration of the Koran by soldiers at Guantanamo Bay was bogus."


"'I wonder if Newsweek, or its owner, the Washington Post, would submit all of their stories for FBI clearance before they publish,' said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb. 'This irresponsible exercise of the First Amendment freedom of the press has killed and injured more people than Charles Whitman or the Beltway Snipers.'" ...

"Call it an educated guess, but veteran Palm Beach State Attorney Barry Krischer figures that when Florida's new 'Stand Your Ground' law takes effect next October the first self-defense claim he'll see will involve a road rage shooting."

Submitter's Note: Doesn't he mean road rage defensive shooting?

"'We already see many cases like that involving firearms. Now, they'll be more inclined to pull the trigger,' Krischer said. ..." ...

"'This could potentially affect all self-defense cases where we suggest the evidence points to something else,' Krischer said. 'The line to be drawn will evolve from how the jury instructions are drafted.'" ...

Police say a 77-year-old Caldwell man managed to clobber a young intruder and hold him until help arrived.

Warren Harlow says he was just defending his home when he scuffled with the teenager Sunday night.

Harlow says he was in bed when he heard someone breaking in.

He grabbed a gun and thumped the intruder twice on the head with the pistol.

He continued to struggle with the man while Harlow's wife, Jan Harlow, called police.

Officers say they arrived to find Harlow standing over the nineteen-year-old intruder.

Caldwell Police Chief Bob Sobba says he'd rather citizens not take matters into their own hands.

MO: 400-Pound Black Bear Killed in Southeast Missouri

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A southeast Missouri landowner won't face charges after shooting and killing a 400-pound black bear, saying he was afraid the animal was going to attack his dog.

The male bear was found dead yesterday near Marquand, in Madison County. It had been shot three times with a .22-caliber rifle on Sunday.

It is illegal to kill black bears in Missouri, but conservation officials say the man who shot the bear was protecting his property.

The bear first showed up at the man's house Saturday night. The man ran the bear off after it ripped boards off a shed as it tried to get to animal feed.

The animal returned a day later and appeared to threaten the man's dog.

The black bear is the smallest bear in North America and the only one native to Missouri.

"She did so to avoid a filibuster by Sen. Ernie Chambers, which would have taken up hours of precious time as the session comes to a close with far more pressing matters still on the agenda."

"Combs claims she not only has enough votes to pass the bill, but has 36 senators lined up to vote to end any possible filibuster."

"On the eve of a crucial vote to reinstate a law allowing more people to carry guns in public, House members received e-mails threatening harassment and blackmail if they voted against the bill Wednesday."

"'We will send people to your homes to harass you, and look in your windows,' said the message sent Tuesday. 'If that does not work, we have information on you, and your family, and we will use it in any way shape or form to get our bill passed.'" ...

"The message appeared to come from Joel Rosenberg, an activist and blogger who supports the gun law and vehemently denied sending the e-mail. His lawyer, David Gross, said the sender apparently contacted lawmakers through the Web site of Concealed Carry Reform Now, a gun rights group, and filled in fake information, including the FBI's Minneapolis address and phone number." ...
 

MN: Pariseau's logic (fourth letter on page)

FULL TEXT BELOW

After a man with a permit to carry a concealed weapon shot the bouncer at Nye's last week, Sen. Pat Pariseau defended her misguided conceal-and-carry legislation by saying, "I don't think it proves problems with the law. I think it proves that someone got [a permit] who shouldn't have gotten one."

Pariseau is absolutely right -- a man who shouldn't have gotten a permit got one. But this isn't something to be flippant about; it shows that proponents of the legislation are wrong.

Anyone can carry a weapon illegally. We don't have to make it easier. Would there have been a shooting at Nye's if this man hadn't had a permit that allowed him to stash his gun in his car?

Maybe, maybe not. Isn't it tragic that we have to ask that question?

SH, Minneapolis.
-------

Submitter's Note: The only problem with Ms. H's "logic" is that the shooter was not carrying a gun. Based on the news reports it appears that he drove home to pick up his gun, making his permit completely irrelevant.

OH: Best Buy Selectively Bans Concealed Carry (OFCC)

"Several weeks ago, Ohioans For Concealed Carry began receiving reports of new 'no-guns' signs appearing at Best Buy locations in Ohio. Initially, it appeared this may have been a result of store managers having been mislead by out-of-state companies who are peddling 'compliance kits' that contain 'no-guns' signs, and falsely claiming that state law requires them to be posted. In fact, in at least one Best Buy store, the sign that is posted was obtained from one of these companies, G-Neil."

"... [I]t now appears that Best Buy has joined the list of business ban hypocrites - corporations whose policy seems to suggest that they believe Ohioans are less likely to be responsible with concealed firearms than their customers in other states." ...

The shoot-up was riveting and disconcerting. But even more disconcerting was the kind of, sort of apology the sheriff's deputies made afterwards at a televised press conference."

"Though they expressed regret over the gunfire that endangered the lives and property of the residents, they made it clear that they did not regret taking the action they did to stop the suspect. The suspect in this case was a black unarmed motorist who was not sought for any crime. Their apology sounded less like an apology than a rationalization for their potentially deadly action. ..." ...

"Arguably the greatest good done Friday was in deleting several amendments to MPPA that went squarely against the core principles that once guided this country.
