“I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of African-American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy,” McCarthy continued, “Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms into our urban centers, across this country, that are killing black and brown children.”
 

NY: Activist Emily Good stunned by fallout from video

Rochester activist Emily Good says she had no idea she would set off a firestorm when she stood on her lawn videotaping a police traffic stop on May12.
She never expected to be arrested, handcuffed for nearly an hour, or taken to jail in her pajamas, either.
During an interview Friday in the office of her attorney Stephanie Stare, Good said she still feels the effects of that night.
"It was outrageous and I still kind of don't believe it. This is still a little bit of numbing shock, this entire situation."
A video of that night's events in front of Good's house on Aldine Street shows Good not obeying Rochester police Officer Mario Masic's commands to go inside her home.

THIS spring was a rough season for the Fourth Amendment. The Obama administration petitioned the Supreme Court to allow GPS tracking of vehicles without judicial permission. The Supreme Court ruled that the police could break into a house without a search warrant if, after knocking and announcing themselves, they heard what sounded like evidence being destroyed. Then it refused to see a Fourth Amendment violation where a citizen was jailed for 16 days on the false pretext that he was being held as a material witness to a crime.

While this has been a landmark year for gun rights across the country with Wisconsin passing a carry bill and Wyoming moving to constitutional carry, Virginia continues to lead the way by passing pro-gun bills at an astonishing rate. Lead by the tireless efforts of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Virginia gun owners have much to look forward to on July 1st such as ...

AB144 now heads to the Senate Floor where a democratic majority is expected to pass it, thanks to a parliamentary maneuver which allowed the bill to skip its original schedule of being heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday, June 27th.

If the Senate passes the bill, then attention will shift to Governor Brown who will be under intense pressure from California gun owners to veto the bill. AB144 is such a poorly drafted piece of legislation that it will have significant unintended consequences such as ....

ICE agents warn Americans “to brace themselves for what’s coming” as catch-and-release of illegals — caught committing other crimes — begins

You may have read that President Obama is now quietly offering a quasi-amnesty for illegal immigrants in a cynical attempt to rebuild his voting base.

Under his direction, new prosecution rules* put ICE agents in a bureaucratic box if they choose to prosecute illegals, with dozens of new, subjective guidelines. In essence, Obama is forcing ICE agents to release illegals even if they are caught committing crimes.

Just yesterday in Pennsylvania, ICE advised police to release three illegals who had been charged with speeding, driving without a license, without insurance, without registration, and providing police with false identification.

A lot of times, Ciccarelli said, law enforcement will track down the original owner, who says it had been stolen from them years prior.

"At that point, it gets into the black market and it's hard for legitimate people to get that back," he said.

Many firearms that are confiscated were originally stolen and trafficked all over the country.

Submitter's note: Utter incoherence.
 

IL: When A Terrorist Wants to Buy a Gun

There are 18 categories under which the purchase of a gun is prohibited by federal law. Those include a felony conviction; illegal drug use; misdemeanor conviction for domestic violence; a legal determination of being a ‘mental defective’; being in the country illegally; a dishonorable discharge from the military; and being the subject of a court order restraining you from harassing, stalking or threatening an intimate partner.

But if the government thinks you’re playing footsie with Al Qaeda, that’s different. You can get a gun, but you cannot fly to Bangor, Me.

Ed.: The existing restrictions require legal due process, whereas the no-fly-list is a secret list administered by bureaucratic fiat and lacking any due process.

A western Kentucky county and city are looking more closely at how the possession of firearms is regulated after a dispute with a man who had to give up his gun before a city commission meeting and who protested signs regulating guns at a park.

Officials in McCracken County and Paducah are reviewing what government entities are allowed to do with regards to firearms in public places.

Thanks to a GOP-backed bill, gun owners who have concealed-weapons permits will be allowed to keep their guns in their cars at work, as long as the guns are not visible and the cars are locked.

An approved amendment to the bill says that if a gun owner brings a gun to work and shoots someone, the employer will not be held liable in any civil action for damages, injury or death.

Supporters of the bill say that individuals' right to bear arms outweighs the rights of business owners to set gun policies. Business groups including the Maine State Chamber of Commerce opposed the bill.
 

LA: Katrina defense to get 2nd test in officers' trial

The so-called Katrina defense is about to get another test.

Defense attorneys are likely to urge jurors to consider stressful conditions faced by police after the 2005 hurricane as they defend five current or former New Orleans officers charged in deadly shootings on a bridge in the storm's aftermath. Katrina's hardships are bound to be a central theme in the opening statements that the officers' lawyers will deliver Monday at the start of a trial expected to last up to eight weeks.

Ed.: Ah, yes, because murder and conspiracy is always a legitimate response to catastrophic flooding.
 

WI: Concealed Carry Law "Restores Dose of Constitutionalism"

The culmination of years of hard work and grassroots advocacy has come to fruition with the passage of Senate Bill 93 in the Wisconsin State Legislature. As other priorities were fulfilled in recent weeks with the approval of a fiscally responsible 2011-13 state budget, it became increasingly clear that the time to finally pass a concealed carry bill into law was at hand.

...

While there is a valid argument to be made for those who say that the state has no right to impose these limitations on anyone wishing to exercise a Constitutional right, I nevertheless am pleased that those with a concealed carry permit will have undergone a familiarity period with their firearm.

A legal brief has been filed in U.S. District Court in New York asking for a summary judgment that would strike New York City's $340 triennial fee for just owning a handgun.

The brief by the Second Amendment Foundation and its affiliate attorney, David Jensen, explains that under U.S. Supreme Court rulings, "the right to keep a handgun in the home for self-defense is a part of the 'core' of the Second Amendment's protections."
 

Bellevue v. Big Apple: SAF files for summary judgment in permit case

The Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation has filed its latest shot in its battle against exorbitant gun license fees in New York City, asking the court for a summary judgment against the city in a case that would have Washington residents marching on city hall or Olympia if it dealt with a gun law here.

Washington gun owners should pay attention because, one might argue, this is the kind of scenario they might face if Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn — a New York native — were ever to get his way and have the State Legislature change this state’s preemption statute, allowing Seattle to set its own gun laws.

Ms. Olson talks about the second amendment right being abused by the people while in reality the ordinance enables the government of Webster City to mistreat that right. The second amendment was not created to allow citizens to use weapons in an offensive manner, but rather defensively. The weapon-free zone ordinance takes away our defense leading to the unintended consequence of unsafe environments for our children and city officials. If someone has the mindset that they are going to break the law and commit the heinous crime of murder, why would they let an ordinance not allowing them to possess a gun at Fuller Hall or city hall stop them from carrying out their mission? They wouldn't.

The Bull Moose Sportsmen's Alliance, a group somewhat new to the neighborhood, released its 2011 Complete Sportsmen's Agenda at a forum in Washington last week.

Its leading issues are conservation, participation and gun rights. The group's leadership says it will push for legislation and "other actions" that employ "science-based tactics and philosophies, increased access opportunities, new sportsmen recruitment and retention policies, and support for sportsmen's Second Amendment rights."
 

Colleges Get Advice on Crafting Weapons Policies That Will Hold Up in Court

When seeking to restrict people from carrying guns on campus, colleges should carefully explain their motivations and should avoid absolute bans that could face trouble in court, a panel of experts advised on Sunday during a gathering of university lawyers here.

Two recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions expanding the reach of the Second Amendment and a flurry of activity by state lawmakers seeking to limit anti-gun policies at colleges have left campus gun bans largely intact. But the panelists said the activity illustrates the need for carefully tailored policies that will hold up in court in the future.
