OH: War Evolves With Drones, Some Tiny as Bugs
Submitted by: Anonymous

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
Two miles from the cow pasture where the Wright Brothers learned to fly the first airplanes, military researchers are at work on another revolution in the air: shrinking unmanned drones, the kind that fire missiles into Pakistan and spy on insurgents in Afghanistan, to the size of insects and birds.
The base's indoor flight lab is called the "microaviary," and for good reason. The drones in development here are designed to replicate the flight mechanics of moths, hawks and other inhabitants of the natural world. "We're looking at how you hide in plain sight," said Greg Parker, an aerospace engineer, as he held up a prototype of a mechanical hawk that in the future might carry out espionage or kill.
 

Study: Portable pools as risky as in-ground pools

"COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The first U.S. study on child drownings in portable pools finds that a child dies every five days in such a pool during warm-weather months, demonstrating a considerable risk and the need for consumer education and affordable protection devices, the study's senior author says."

----

Submitter's note: The anti gun crowd will call for a list of bans and regulations on pools now...right? Wait, they won't? Why? They care about the children don't they? You mean the anti gunners hate our gun rights more than they want to protect kids? That makes them liars though, and the media wouldn't quote liars constantly.
 

Mega-Scandal: Was ‘Gunwalker’ a PR Op for Gun Control?

"... Gunwalker’s objective was never intended to be a “legitimate law enforcement interest.” Instead, it appears that ATF Acting Director Ken Melson and Department of Justice senior executives specifically created an operation that was designed from the outset to arm Mexican narco-terrorists and increase violence substantially along both sides of the Southwest border."

"The point here is not to whine about the scoop lost—although it would have been nice to have, no question. But this is not about Mike or me or the one that got away."

"The point here is to observe that the sources we have been dealing with since before any of the 'Authorized Journalists' had even heard of Gunwalker, let alone got some skin of their own in the game months later, appear to have had information they provided corroborated once again."

The festival is open to competitors who are members in good standing of the NYSRPA.

"Steele, who lived in the town of Los Gatos near San Jose, had been facing child molestation charges in Santa Clara County and was under a restraining order to stay away from the girl." {emphasis sorely needed}

-----

Submitter's note: We need to repeal these laws allowing so called "restraining" orders and "protective" orders and force these worthless judges to order firearms training and a loaner Glock instead handing out "protective" orders which give a false sense of security and get victims killed.

NY: Ban on Hearing Aids Is Forcing Out Veteran New York City Police Officers
Submitted by: Anonymous

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
The New York Police Department's policy regarding a job candidate's hearing ability is straightforward enough: Applicants who fail a basic hearing test will not be hired as officers.
But for police officers already on the job, the policy is not so clear-cut.
After years of informally allowing officers to wear hearing aids, and even paying for some, the department in late 2009 began enforcing a ban on the hearing devices, forcing older officers who had them to retire and instructing younger officers to stop wearing them at work.

"I hope no one from your campaign thinks you’ve been misrepresented here, Mr. Cain. Not only did I acknowledge the opinion that we needed to cut you some slack because you 'slipped up a bit,' I actually sent you a series of questions that would leave no room for anyone to misrepresent your position on guns. I gave your campaign a chance to be nontraditional, to address sensitive subjects, to be atypical and to enter the belly of the beast."
 

WV: WVCDL has standing to sue city over gun laws

A federal judge has denied the city of Martinsburg's motion to dismiss a case challenging the city's gun laws.

The West Virginia Citizens Defense League filed the suit in U.S. District Court of the Northern District of West Virginia on Jan. 24. WVCDL argues that Martinsburg's laws forbidding people from bringing firearms onto city property violates both the U.S. and state constitutions.

The city countered that the WVCDL had no standing to bring the suit because no one had been harmed by the city's regulations.

"The Utah Supreme Court cleared the way for a lawsuit to go forward against the West Valley City pawnshop that sold a weapon to Trolley Square shooter Sulejman Talovic."

-----

Submitter's note: The buyer passed the background check. The pawn shop failed to put a number on a form. This lawsuit should have been dismissed soooo long ago. Apparently the drive to MAKE someone (esp an evil gun dealer) PAY outweighs any pretense of justice. Remember, this is a "wrongful death" suit. Incredible.

Florida doesn't have an open-carry law to show your piece off in public, but it's now OK to "briefly and openly" flash your firearm to the populace.

Since Gov. Rick Scott signed SB 234 into law Friday, it's been legal to show off your hardware -- but just for a little bit.
 

PA: Pa. Senate gives final approval to 'castle doctrine' bill to expand right to use deadly force

The state Senate sent the governor a bill Monday to expand the right to use deadly force in self-defense in Pennsylvania, ending more than a year of often-emotional debate over the role of guns in society.

The bill to widen Pennsylvania's existing self-defense law was approved 45-5 without discussion by the Republican-controlled Senate.

Gov. Tom Corbett is expected to sign the measure.

"Law-abiding citizens should not have to fear prosecution because they seek to protect themselves from criminals," said Sen. Gene Yaw, R-Lycoming, a co-sponsor of similar legislation in the Senate. "This measure protects responsible gun owners, while ensuring that their Second Amendment rights are preserved."

...but the National Shooting Sports Foundation has, and a spokesman said that when they met at the Justice Department, gun-control measures didn't even come up.

"The topics discussed at the meeting were limited strictly to improving and enhancing the current background check system," said spokesman Ted Novin, explaining that closing the gun-show loophole would amount to expanding the system, not improving it, and his group doesn't support an expansion. "No gun-control measures of any kind were discussed during the meeting, nor would this organization support any such proposals that would curtail the lawful commerce of firearms or the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens," Novin said.

“The ATF has a long history of abusing our Second Amendment rights, so I was glad to see Congressman Issa demanding answers on the Project “Gunwalker” scandal.

“My hope is that the recent hearing will further expose the ATF's and Attorney General Eric Holder's assaults on law-abiding gun owners, and more people will start questioning the need for unconstitutional agencies like the ATF that exist solely to infringe on American citizens' God-given right to keep and bear arms.”

CNN is now reporting, as did the Wall Street Journal and others last Friday that Kenneth Melson, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, will be resigning this week, possibly within the next 48 hours.

Yet, at this point, those reports still amount to speculation. Melson has not made any official announcement. My colleague, David Codrea, writes about the story here.

His conservative-libertarian credentials are well-known; as reflected, for example, is his having received high marks from both the libertarian-leaning Cato Institute, and from the establishment Wall Street Journal.

Perry has been vocal on the need to restore the Bill of Right’s Tenth Amendment, which is designed to protect state sovereignty on issues not expressly tasked to the federal government. He is on record in favor of repealing the income-tax-authorizing Sixteenth Amendment; and his record of support for the Second Amendment is outstanding.

As one of our readers noted, Johnny DuPree, in his capacity as mayor of Hattiesburg, is a member of an anti-gun group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns. It was founded a few years ago by two of the most anti-gun mayors in the country: NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

Hundreds of mayor’s throughout the country are coalition members; usually residing in the largest cities in the country along with some smaller, traditionally liberal areas. DuPree is one of just three mayors’ in Mississippi on board. One other, as you would likely imagine, is Jackson Mayor Harvey Johnson. The third is a bit more unusual- Sunflower Mayor Michael Pembleton.
 

Who Should Not Carry a Gun?

With power comes responsibility. With greater power, comes greater responsibility. If you carry a gun, you carry the power of life and death. That’s a lot of power. Such power raises your level of responsibility such that you must be diligent in avoiding social conflicts that could escalate into serious violence.

You must avoid road rage incidents and the like. This is because if you are in a violent physical confrontation, by having a gun on you, you are introducing deadly force into the equation.

New Hampshire lawmakers are voting this week whether to allow people to use deadly force anyplace they have a right to be.

Current law allows people to use deadly force in self-defense in their homes, or in public to defend others if they attempt to retreat first. Supporters argue the bill would give citizens a right to stand their ground when threatened.
 

There Is No Serious Reason to Ban Firearms on Campus

They always seem to ask, “If you think guns should be allowed on college campuses, do you think concealed carry should be allowed on planes, as well? Where does it end?”

Those who advocate for gun rights on college campuses beg the same question, “Where does it end?” Where do restrictions on our basic freedoms end? Where does nanny state regulation and oversight end? Where does stripping the Constitution of its authenticity and integrity end?

The argument for concealed carry on campus is not an argument for permitting guns on planes, in bars, or anywhere else. It is an argument for the right of students to defend themselves while on school grounds, should the need arise.

After an Oklahoma City pharmacist was convicted of first-degree murder in May for killing a teen in a botched robbery, a new law, known as the "Jerome Ersland Act,” is being proposed.

The bill would say that a business owner was acting in self-defense if that owner shoots and kills an armed robber.

States are given no liberty under the Second Amendment to deprive individuals of the right of self-defense, and yet that is the position that Herman took, and emphatically so, with Blitzer.

Hermans’ supporters were left confused and alarmed by his answer.

Saturday night, Herman said, “I don’t believe states should restrict access to guns, but what if a state wants to pass background checks? What if a state wants to pass carry-and-conceal?” But the problem is that he in fact pointedly agreed with Blitzer that states should “be allowed to control guns.” That alone may be the iceberg which punches a fatal hole in his campaign cruise ship.

Gov. Rick Perry has signed legislation championed by Fort Bend State Sen. Glenn Hegar that allows employees to store legally owned firearms in their locked, privately owned motor vehicles while at their workplace.

Hegar had introduced the bill during three sessions of the Texas Legislature, but this was the first time it made it to the governor’s desk.

The bill was strongly backed by the Texas Rifle Association and the National Rifle Association.

My WSB colleague and guru, the Talkmaster Neal Boortz, created a bit of controversy this past week over comments he made about shooting thugs in Atlanta.

The controversy actually blew up because of Ed Schultz at MSNBC who claimed Boortz was advocating the murder of urban youths in Atlanta.
