AR: Ark. shooter held anti-government views

An Ohio man's resentment of authority and run-ins with the law was enough for a sheriff to warn that he could be dangerous if confronted by law enforcement.

Jerry Kane Jr., 45, of Forest, Ohio, and his son Joseph Kane, believed to be 16, were killed during an exchange of gunfire with officers in a Walmart parking lot, Arkansas State Police said Friday.

The shootings came about 90 minutes after West Memphis police Sgt. Brandon Paudert, 39, and Officer Bill Evans, 38, were attacked with AK-47 assault rifles after they stopped a minivan on Interstate 40 in West Memphis on Thursday, authorities said.

A 67-year-old Yuba City woman was shot and killed by officers when she pointed a shotgun at them and refused to put it down, Yuba City police said Friday.
Victoria Helen Roger-Vasselin was pronounced dead late Thursday at her home at 764 Mariner Loop in an affluent neighborhood on the city's far south side.
An autopsy Friday showed she died of "multiple gunshot wounds," said Sutter County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Brenda Baker.
A neighbor reported hearing five or six shots.
Roger-Vasselin was the sister of the late Thomas E. Mathews, a Yuba County judge and district attorney who died in 2005.
"They shot her dead," Roger-Vasselin's distraught son, Christian Biscotti, said outside the house Friday morning.
 

MD: Debate Sparks Over Video Recording Of Arrests

The American Civil Liberties Union says no.

"For the government to be saying it has the power to prevent citizens from doing that is profoundly shocking, troubling, and particularly in the case of Maryland, simply flat-out wrong," said David Roach, ACLU.

Under Maryland law, conversations in private cannot be recorded without the consent of both people involved.

But can that be applied to incidents such as one caught on tape three years ago where a Baltimore officer arrested a teenager at the Inner Harbor?

"When you tell me to turn it off because it's against the law, you've proven to me that I'm not secretly taping you," said law professor Byron Warnken. "He doesn't have the right to say, if you don't stop recording me, I'm going to arrest you."
 

NY: Subway Self-Defense Stabber Freed

Brenddy Garcia, who fatally stabbed two men on a 2 train in March, was freed from Rikers Island yesterday. On Friday, a grand jury believed that he acted in self-defense and did not indict him for murder. The Post caught the 19-year-old "relish[ing] his first seconds outside of prison, beaming a big smile and deeply breathing in the fresh air," ...

Garcia was referring to how he was initially painted as the aggressor in the early morning confrontation (and the machete picture probably didn't help either). Witnesses confirmed that Garcia was being attacked by a group of people on the subway when he used a folding knife with a four-inch blade to stab Ricardo Williams and Darnell Morel.
 

New Release Teaches an Innovative Approach to Self Defense That Combines Martial Arts and Shooting

In this new release, author Alan Egusa introduces us to an exciting new method of shooting developed by friend and colleague Kent Turnipseed. For the first time in firearm history, the principles of traditional martial arts are applied to shooting guns. This approach, called the “Turnipseed Technique,” formally integrates balance, skeletal alignment, muscle relaxation, and body indexing with shooting. Average shooters can use this method to improve their accuracy and significantly reduce the gun's recoil. Even the most experienced shooters are astounded at how effective the Turnipseed Technique is. After attending a class, their typical reaction is, “This is so simple and obvious when you explain it.
 

Wrestling with gun rights

The Supreme Court found the right to be armed preexisted the Constitution and that when the Second Amendment stated, "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed," it intended to protect an individual right. Despite the suggestion of some critics, this is no new right. It is the most ancient of rights.

Of course, the framers of the Constitution lived in what we like to characterize as "a simpler time." Is it sensible to trust ordinary citizens with firearms when there are police to protect them? Won't more guns increase violence?
 

Attack on Chicago's handgun ban could undo a winning police tactic

New York's tough gun-control laws were central to its success in reducing crime. Because it is illegal to own a handgun without a difficult-to-get permit in New York, whenever police see a suspicious bulge or other indication of a firearm, they can stop and frisk. Weapons searches are by far the most common stop-and-frisk activity in New York; there were more than 56,000 over 15 months studied by New York's attorney general.

The evidence that aggressive enforcement of gun-control laws reduces violent crime is not limited to New York. A recent National Research Council report found that throughout the nation, aggressive stop-and-frisk tactics targeting illegal guns drive down crime.
 

“Officer Safety” Puts Children at Risk
Submitted by: Larry

The SWAT stormtroopers who invaded the Columbia, Missouri home of Jonathan Whitworth on February 11 knew a seven-year-old child lived there. This didn’t stop them from invading the home late in the evening, when the child would be put at risk. Nor did the invaders see anything amiss in shooting at two dogs that presented a “tactical obstacle” to the raid, even though the first shot missed the target.

Had things turned out just a bit differently, Whitworth’s child could easily have been murdered by the police through depraved indifference, as was the case with Detroit resident Aiyana Jones, the 7-year-old who was burned and shot to death during a May 16 SWAT raid on her duplex.
 

Workhorse rifle 'failing US troops in Afghanistan'
Submitted by: Larry

The US military thinks it may have got one of the basics wrong: its guns are not good enough. A US Army study found that the M-4 rifle, the workhorse weapon of America's troops, is ineffective at ranges of more then 300m because bullets lose the velocity necessary to kill an enemy.

Although the dense vegetation and warrens of mud-packed houses in parts of southern Afghanistan lend themselves to close-range fighting, there are also many battles where Taliban fighters make use of the heavier calibre of their AK-47s to ambush Nato and Afghan soldiers from afar.

Submitter's note: Read somewhere that as the Romans became more deeply immersed in their empire, the quality of the legionnaires' weapons declined.

Mexican president urges U.S. to ban assault rifles, overhaul immigration policy

Winding up a two-day visit to Washington, Calderon said that his security forces were seizing tens of thousands of powerful guns that they have traced to the United States.

Calderon said the U.S. needed to "regulate the sale of these weapons in the right way."

"Many of these guns are not going to honest American hands," he said. "Instead, thousands are ending up in the hands of criminals."

Mexican officials have long wanted the United States to reinstitute a ban on assault weapons. But in a visit to Mexico City last year, President Obama said reviving the ban that lapsed in 2004 would be tough to accomplish politically.

Submitter's note: If he were a man and not a NWO toady, he would demand that both Mexico and the US mind their own affairs.
 

FL: 'Stand Your Ground' self-defense law is 5

Up to 30 shots blazed between two groups of men in a late-night 2008 street skirmish, killing 15-year-old Michael Jackson.

Last week, a Tallahassee judge decided Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law forced him to dismiss charges against two of the combatants.

Jeffrey Brown and Andrae Tyler were found immune from prosecution after a Leon County mini-trial, their legal fates decided by the state Legislature more than five years ago.

State Attorney Willie Meggs said the Legislature should repeal "that stinking law." The judge who made the decision wrote that the law created an environment "very much like the Wild West." Gun-rights advocates say the law, working as intended, protects innocent people from prosecution.

Certainly many lawmakers think we place great importance on firearms matters. Why else would they have handily passed so many measures aiming to expand our gun rights?

The conventional wisdom is that we Oklahomans are a gun-loving bunch, and no doubt there's some truth to that. But statistical evidence suggests we're not necessarily any nuttier about guns than many other Americans. Consider this: There are about 2.5 million adults above the age of 21 living in Oklahoma, most of whom likely could obtain a concealed-carry permit if they wanted one. Yet only about 97,000 Oklahomans have gone to the negligible trouble to obtain such a permit.

The incident on the Danziger Bridge, which occurred on Sept. 4, 2005, involved one shooting on the east side of the bridge that resulted in the death of one civilian and the wounding of four others, and a second shooting on the west side of the bridge that resulted in the death of Ronald Madison, a 40-year-old man with severe mental disabilities. Ronald Madison’s brother, Lance, was arrested on eight counts of attempting to kill police officers, but he was later released without indictment. The police maintained that they fired at the civilians in self-defense after the civilians fired at police. ...in recent months, four former and current NOPD officers have pleaded guilty to federal charges related to a cover up of the shooting incident.

I asked each of the major Republican candidates for governor and US Senate to oppose the Democrat gun ban AB1934 which would create the new crime of openly carrying an unloaded handgun in the State of California. I got a response from Chuck DeVore today, "I already have several times -- I have an "A" rating from the NRA in six years of voting."

I've also asked the Democrat Jerry Brown but I don't expect an answer. Jerry Brown still has his knickers all in a twist because of my articles criticizing his association with the Michael Jackson cult followers. There is obviously no point in asking Barbara Boxer her opinion of AB1934.

Does Marriott gun posting represent Charlotte’s hostility toward NRA?
F. Paul Valone
Charlotte Gun Rights Examiner

When the Charlotte Marriott City Center posted “no firearms” signs during the NRA convention and GRNC’s “Gala for Gun Rights,” making inadvertent criminals of conventioneers, it delivered an egregious insult to gun owners. Given 85,000 gun supporters spending $26 million, not only Marriott but also city of Charlotte should show greater respect …

"We support whole-heartedly a bill introduced in the Senate a few days ago to protect the gun rights of our soldiers," John M. Snyder, Public Affairs Director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, said here today.

S. 3388, the proposed Service Member Second Amendment Protection Act, was introduced by Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, and referred to the Committee on Armed Services.

It would protect the Second Amendment rights of soldiers and Department of Defense civilian employees by prohibiting the DOD from requiring the registration of privately owned firearms, ammunition or other weapons beyond what is already required by federal law.

In his speech Thursday to a joint session of Congress, Calderon made his most controversial headline. Pleading for help in limiting the flow of weapons into his country from American sources, the Mexican leader asked Congress to reinstate this country's ban on assault weapons. The ban was signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1994 but later repealed. We'd be happy to see it reinstated.

Predictably, Calderon's request has inflamed the emotions of Second Amendment defenders, who view it as an outsider meddling with a cherished constitutional right.
 

Mexican President Calls For Reinstatement Of Failed Gun Ban

On Thursday, Felipe Calderon, the president of Mexico, where prohibitive gun laws prevent good people from having firearms for protection against criminals and governments of dubious legitimacy (historically the norm in Mexico), encouraged Congress to reinstate the federal “assault weapon” ban.

With a warning seemingly designed to appeal to those who believe that speaking out against the Obama Administration’s policies are one step short of sedition or worse, Calderon said, “[I]f you do not regulate the sale of these weapons in the right way, nothing guarantees that criminals here in the United States with access to the same power of weapons will not decide to challenge American authorities and civilians.”
