OH: FirstMerit victim zone robbed again
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Last week, a new policy of banning firearms in FirstMerit Bank began to be enforced. Signs were posted in several branches, with word that they will be posted in all Ohio branches. Unfortunately for residents in Pennsylvania, who have been able to bank at FirstMerit for several years without being confronted with discriminatory signs, we have learned the bank plans to post them there too. That state has had a concealed carry law since the late 1980's."

"OFCC has learned that yesterday marked the FIFTH robbery at an Ohio FirstMerit in the past two weeks."
 

Safety Bullet, a worthless piece of junk (blog)

"The Safety Bullet is being marketed as a handgun safety device, one that lodges something in the barrel of your semi-auto or renders the cylinder of your revolver immobile. It is supposed to be counteracted by a wooden dowel. The whole point of the product is supposedly to prevent negligent homicides from children playing with guns." ...

1. I am not stupid. And no law requires me to keep a safety device on my handgun or long guns. My state has no such Brady Bunch drivel in its lawbooks. Here, we believe in PARENTING and common sense.

2. My safety device is my brain. I have told you this already.

The author recounts correspondence with the inventor of a device called the "Safety Bullet" (read "safety disabler").

"Scanning the pages of The News Journal last week, I came across a story about a University of Delaware student who was abducted at gun point and sexually assaulted." ...

"There are about 10 things I could rant and rave about -- our reliance on technology, which is never better than an actual person, or the fact that it took a year to find someone who could help -- but, instead I am choosing to use this girl's terrifying experience to remind everyone that just when you think it can't happen to you, it does." ...

Awareness of your surroundings is important, but having an effective means of self-defense is even more so.

"LAST weekend, a few of my shooting friends and I gathered at the farm that is my local shoot to spend a couple of hours trying to hit some clay pigeons."

"This was both a social event and an opportunity to maintain and improve our marksmanship for the next shooting season. There was, of course, plenty of comment when clays were missed and over-enthusiastic cheering when they were hit."

"All of us were using modern 12-bore breech-loading shotguns, either side-by-side or over-and-under barrel formation and, purely for the sake of interest, I had taken along a much larger single barrel 8-bore and a much smaller bolt- action .410 shotgun. I am pleased to say that clays were hit with all of them, by some of us."

"A 20-year-old Towson University student was raped in her off-campus apartment early this morning by a man who threatened her with a knife, Baltimore County police said."

"The woman told police she woke about 4 a.m. to find a man she did not recognize standing in her bedroom, said Officer Shawn Vinson, a police spokesman."

"The man held something over her face, then raped and committed other sexual assaults against her, Vinson said."

"After assaulting her, the man remained inside the woman's apartment on Greenview Drive -- just across from the university -- and continued to threaten her for about two hours, Vinson said. Police were called about 7:15 a.m., after the man had fled, Vinson said."

Once again police can do nothing to prevent the crime. They come after the fact and take a report.
 

Report: 1 of Every 75 U.S. Men in Prison
Submitted by: Thompson

"America's prison population grew by 2.9 percent last year, to almost 2.1 million inmates, with one of every 75 men living in prison or jail."

"The inmate population continued its rise despite a fall in the crime rate and many states' efforts to reduce some sentences, especially for low-level drug offenders."

"The report issued Thursday by the Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics attributes much of the increase to get-tough policies enacted during the 1980s and '90s, such as mandatory drug sentences, 'three-strikes-and-you're-out' laws for repeat offenders, and 'truth-in-sentencing laws' that restrict early releases."

Singapore: When gum is outlawed, only outlaws will chew gum

"ULTRA-tidy Singapore is lifting its notorious ban on chewing gum after 12 long years – but only for registered users. Gum dealers face jail if they break the rules."

"Before Singaporeans think about unwrapping a pack of the Wrigley's Orbit gum that's just started selling here – and only in pharmacies – they have to submit their names and ID card numbers. If they don't, pharmacists who sell them gum could be jailed up to two years and fined S$5000."

"This Southeast Asian city-state, known for its immaculate streets and tight social controls, outlawed the manufacture, import and sale of chewing gum in 1992 after the country's founding father, Lee Kuan Yew, complained that it was fouling streets, buildings, buses and subway trains."

"The nation's militia subculture is alive, if hardly well, in northwestern Pennsylvania, even though experts say such groups have been on the wane since members testified before Congress in the mid-1990s in the wake of the Branch Davidian disaster and the Oklahoma City bombing."

"Militia-type groups insist those events were government-provoked, if not sponsored, and the attorney for the man alleged to be leading one of two small Crawford County groups says his client is being unfairly targeted, too."

Did they forget that most of us are part of a militia?

"Myers said the county has received more than 500 applications for permits since the new law went into effect April 8. His office has issued more than 100 licenses, and more than 50 appointments have been made to issue more licenses." ...

"I support the Second Amendment, and the statute says I need to process these applications in 45 days... I take that legal obligation seriously."

If the Sheriff truly supported the Second Amendment, he would also realize that the Bill of Rights says nothing about obtaining government permission to exercise your Second Amendment right.

"The would-be robber walked into D&J Market near Bear Valley and Jacaranda roads, pulled out a black semiautomatic handgun and attacked an employee at 9:20 p.m., according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. The gunman then demanded the money in the cash register."

"Instead of handing over the cash, the employee wrestled with the robber and stripped him of the gun, which turned out to be a toy, officials said."

"I take issue with a statement in a May 21 news article that the police commissioner 'took a position that undercut the argument of the city's civil lawyers' in New York City's case against gun makers and distributors. In fact, the Police Department supports the lawsuit and has been working with the Law Department on this case since its inception."

"The police commissioner's letter in 2002 to Attorney General John Ashcroft, which you mention, addressed a ruling of a federal court in Chicago that would have permitted unrestricted release to the public of the firearms trace database maintained by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. New York City has sought access to that same information under the very different, guarded conditions of a judicial protective order."

"Throughout the case, the Police Department and city lawyers have worked together to assure achievement of two goals: requiring gun makers and distributors to adopt responsible marketing and distribution practices, while maintaining the confidentiality of law enforcement information."

"Studenski said the patrols are centered in some of the city's 'hot spots,' where there have been shootings and other crime concerns in the past." ...

"The move comes as the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office and police formed a task force last week to swap information and coordinate crime-fighting efforts in the city. That step was taken after authorities discovered the number of gun crimes significantly increased from early spring of last year to the same time period this year, according to a study done for the district attorney."

"Semiautomatic pistols, shotguns and rifles are commonplace firearms in this country, and almost all of them remain legal. They were not targeted even though they are functionally identical to the 'assault weapons' that were forbidden. The latter firearms were banned not because they fire faster or do more damage than other guns, but because they look scary."

"The Million Mom March charges that these weapons are 'far more powerful than conventional guns' and 'able to pierce body armor.' But as Don Kates, co-author of 'Armed: New Perspectives on Gun Control,' points out, 'All rifle rounds [except mere .22s] will pierce body armor.' "

"Why do We, the People, go off to fight and kill people in far off lands when we can't even muster the courage to stand up to our elected officials and say 'You are the servants of the people, not vice versa!' "

"I write this letter because we seem to be overcome with joy because our representatives in Springfield are thinking of tossing us a crumb by allowing us to defend ourselves in our homes. They are giving us nothing that is not already provided to us by the US Constitution. But the real irony is that Gov. Blago is threatening to veto the bill? I've never been to Springfield but it's obvious to me they don't need a mental hospital--the State Legislature is the only looney bin they need there!"

"On the issue of gun ownership, Bevill said he strongly supports the Second Amendment."

"Except for felons and the adjudicated mentally ill, the government has no right to maintain records of law-abiding citizens who buy guns... Guns are used five times as often to stop crimes than to commit them, according to a University of Chicago study. In those states where gun ownership is heavily restricted, crimes with guns are disproportionately high."

"Even in the age of unmanned aerial vehicles, satellite-guided bombs and night-vision goggles, the US army cannot fight a war without its most basic necessity: bullets."

"And with more troops in Iraq, more intense combat than expected and the need for almost every soldier from frontline infantryman to rearguard logistician to be prepared for an ambush, the army suddenly finds itself in a bullet crunch."

"According to a requisition last week by the Army Field Support Command, the service will need 300m to 500m more bullets a year for at least five years, or more than 1.5m a year for combat and training. And because the single army-owned, small-calibre ammunition factory in Lake City, Missouri, can produce only 1.2m bullets annually, the army is suddenly scrambling to get private defence contractors to help fill the gap." ...

"At an employee-only party Wednesday celebrating the creation of the Clark County Parks and Community Services Department, staff bought $1 raffle tickets for a chance to win a variety of items including fishing gear, a free buffet at the Bellagio -- and a shotgun."

"No county money was used to pay for the event. The $1,200 raised Wednesday goes into a private account used by employees to pay for future parties or items such as flowers for a fellow employee who has a baby or has a death in the family, county officials said. But top county management will review the raffle because of the shotgun prize." ...

" 'Why would you raffle something you know people don't want?' he asked. 'It's not illegal, and if someone objects to it, they just don't put in for it.' "

It's called freedom and choice. Maybe the hanky wringers who object to this raffle should read about it sometime.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down... a person cannot be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)
