"The Virginia City Council Tuesday approved an ordinance that prohibits firearms on city property, which is contrary to a new state law."

"Councilor Charlie Baribeau supported defying the state law and said it was “crazy’’ that city buildings weren’t exempted in the first place."

"The new city ordinance defines city property as any building or recreation center that is owned or controlled by the city."

But, again, they aren't your buildings, they are our buildings - we, the taxpayers.

"The Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort, or WAVE spoke about the National Rifle Association's stance against renewing the ban."

" 'Their position may be good for street criminals. Their position may be good for terrorists, but their position sure isn't good for police officers or for law-abiding citizens and responsible gun owners,' said Dan Ullrich of WAVE."

-------
Of course the fact that these weapons are HARDLY EVER used in crimes does nothing to stop their histrionics.

"As a car pulls up to a checkpoint in Iraq, wary American soldiers scan driver and passengers, wondering if one of them is preparing to fire a hidden gun."

"As VIPs line up for a reception with the President and foreign leaders, impassive security guards look each person up and down, alert to any clue of malicious intent."

"Rick Blum, professor of electrical and computer engineering, hopes to equip these soldiers and security guards with a device that can save them a few potentially life-saving seconds in the search for concealed weapons."

"Blum and his graduate students have devised a system that combines a photo taken by an optical camera with a photo of the same subject taken by a millimeter-wave camera (MMW). The result is a composite photo that exposes much more than either photo reveals by itself."

"Police are adamant that the campaign was a success, stressing it had pulled hundreds of deadly weapons off the streets."
 

A Critique of the Declaration of Independence

"Thus, there never has been, is not and will likely never be such an entity as 'one people' - a collection of humans which jointly thinks and acts as one simply does not exist (humans are not 'Borg'). Given this obvious fact of nature, it was both presumptuous and factually false for the Framers to declare that they were speaking for all the people within the thirteen colonies. Moreover, this exaggeration was entirely unnecessary, since all that each of them needed to do was to declare his own individual independence, and that of any particular individual who he knew for certain to agree with him and had given him permission to do so. This same philosophically flawed collectivist thinking and pompous language, by which the Framers presume to represent the views of all, continues throughout TDOI (and, of course, has now become a characteristic of politicians, 'leaders' and 'public' officials - not to mention social philosophers - everywhere). It was truly unfortunate that the Framers did not recognize that humans are individually thinking, independent volitional beings each of whom can only evaluate for himself according to his own personal inner value code - a code moreover which is unknowable in any significant detail by anyone else. Or if they did realize this fact of reality, that they did not give it a fundamental role in their Declaration."

"Mr. Brennan, a serving police officer, said there was 105 organisations to represent the criminal."

"This country is sick and tired of people like the bishop pontificating on how society should behave towards the offenders."

"We rarely, if ever, hear condemnation of those that blight society through burglary, robbery, rape and by carrying guns."

-------
Notice how carrying a gun, regardless whether or not it is for self defense, is comparable to burglary and rape in the eyes of this particular Brit. It's a "blight" to effectively defend yourself against all those well-represented criminals, apparently.

"Armed Iraqis killed two of the British soldiers on Tuesday at the scene of the demonstration — in front of the mayor’s office — and then stormed a police station and killed four other British soldiers after a two-hour gunbattle, a pair of Iraqi policemen who were at the scene told the Associated Press."

"The violent demonstration was the second in two days, apparently sparked by British soldiers’ searches for heavy weapons in homes, said Abu Zahraa, a 30-year-old vendor."

-------
It would seem that the Iraqi people don't appreciate being disarmed. A pity that the British don't see the irony in this.

"After being released from jail for carrying a loaded firearm, Asher D, a member of the group So Solid Crew, said he would help fight to curb gun violence."

"The 20-year-old is helping to launch the Disarm campaign so that young people can learn from his mistake."

" 'If you carry a gun you could end up having a gun to your head and being killed,' he said. 'To some, weapons have a feeling of power. But guns lead to death. If we get one gun off the street then that's a good thing.' "

Guns also save lives. But, of course, the disarmed populace of the UK doesn't realize this, as they're constantly left at the mercy of armed criminals.

Note that neither woman was armed and had to rely on the police to come protect them from charging animals, instead of taking responsibility for their own safety.

Talks continued last night between representatives of the Senate, House, and governor’s office as lawmakers moved toward recessing for the summer."

"Taft supports the Senate version of the bill, but not the House version. It's the first time Taft has supported any bill allowing Ohioans to carry hidden guns."

Ramsey County already bans guns at its parks, beaches and golf courses. The gun prohibition goes into effect in 30 days."

"We didn't intend this article to be a risk/benefit assessment of people owning a gun, but more about whether you want to live in a neighborhood where your neighbors own guns. Our research shows that if your neighbors are heavily armed, you're not getting any protection. In fact, it might makes things more dicey. That dovetails nicely with Dr. David Hemenway's research. He asks: Do you feel safe with a gun in your home? Most people say yes. Then he asks: would you feel safer if your neighbors had guns. Most say no."

"Representatives of the House, Senate and governor sat down Tuesday to seek a compromise on the gun bill, which Gov. Bob Taft said he will sign in its current form."

"But the bill is unacceptable to many in the Ohio House who oppose a provision that eliminates a person's ability to carry a gun in a vehicle without a permit. Current law allows a concealed handgun if a person's life is in danger, or if he performs a dangerous job."
 

Guns, Self-defense, and the Second Amendment

"The right to own a firearm, is based on the right to self-defense, i.e., the right to those means to defend oneself against those who wish to destroy one's life. The right to self-defense is itself is a corollary of the right to life (a corollary is here defined as a self-evident implication of a general principle)."

"It would be absurd to say one has the right to life, but does not have the right to the means necessary to protect that life. It would be like saying one has the right to life, but not the right to purchase food. Yet, this is what opponents to the right to own a gun are really against: the right to life."

"The proposal would require judges to take any guns from defendants in certain circumstances when they are ordered to stay away from a spouse or lover. Guns could be seized if the person has threatened to use deadly force against a spouse or lover, has injured the person taking out the order or a child, or threatened to commit suicide."
