"Both sides should have a vested interest in apprehending anyone who would be involved in such a thing, and if they can agree on nothing else, they should be circulating the photos and information within their spheres of influence, and urging anyone with knowledge to come forward."

Where Do the Guns Traced in Your State Come From?

Nearly a third of the 155,000 guns officials recovered in 2012 were traced back to sources outside the state they were found in, according to data compiled by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: So what? How much of our taxes and how many man-hours were wasted in the compilation of this meaningless claptrap? What does "officials recovered" mean? Why were the firearms traced? How many crimes were solved because of this exercise in futility?
We are a mobile population. We buy firearms in one state and then, for whatever reason, we move to another.
The very compilation of this data is an infringement on the Second Amendment.

Gun sweepstakes have been a feature of life in parts of the US for years. But now elected officials offer guns as prizes for prospective voters.

There are all the trappings of a normal raffle draw; a tombola drum filled with tickets and a table where the prizes are proudly laid out on display. But instead of the usual fare of food hampers or boxes of chocolate, the owners of the winning tickets stand to gain a new gun. The grand prize is a Remington 870 Wingmaster 12-gauge shotgun with gold inlay. Four other firearms are also up for grabs.
 

Second Amendment limits must have strong grounds for implementation

No serious advocate of the individual right to armed self-defense argues that the Second Amendment protects a boundless liberty. Governments certainly can outlaw personal rocket launchers, say, or prohibit the mentally ill or violent felons from possessing firearms. But for gun regulations to be constitutional — as many existing ones are — their proponents need to do more than defeat straw-man arguments about an absolute Second Amendment.

Roybal said police received an emergency 911 call from a resident at the house at about 2 a.m. reporting that someone had tried to enter and that the resident had shot the person. The homeowner, who police did not name, has not been charged or arrested.

The Las Vegas Sun reported that the man and a friend had been attending a birthday party, left that residence for a short time and returned to what they thought was the same house.

They banged on the door while arguing with the homeowner, who shot once through the closed door and wounded one of the two men, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

Smith & Wesson Corp. announced today that it is now offering versions of its popular M&P Shield™ pistol in both 9mm and .40 S&W without the single-sided thumb safety.

Brought to market after numerous requests from private citizens, law enforcement professionals and firearm retailers, the new models retain original design features that have helped to solidify the M&P Shield’s reputation in the marketplace as a reliable, accurate self-defense firearm.

Whether deployed as a backup sidearm for police personnel, a deep concealment pistol for plain-clothes officers or an every-day firearm for concealed carry permit holders, the M&P Shield has been met with wide approval.

For example, our First Amendment rights are being violated by the Federal Buildings and Grounds Act and attempts by the Bureau of Land Management to set up "First Amendment zones." Our Second Amendment rights are continually under attack. Our Fourth Amendment rights are ignored by the intrusive and spying National Security Agency.

Our Fifth Amendment rights can be violated if we are thought to be a domestic threat via the National Defense Authorization Act where we can be placed in prison without a trial indefinitely. Our 10th Amendment rights are being usurped via the Environmental Protection Agency and other bureaucracies, and the list goes on.
 

CA: Pleasant Hill holding firm on firearms regulations

Contrary to rumors swirling around town, city leaders are not reconsidering an ordinance they adopted last year regulating the sales of firearms and ammunition.

Barring a successful legal challenge -- a September trial is scheduled to hear the National Shooting Sports Foundation's lawsuit against the city -- gun dealers must have a police permit to operate in Pleasant Hill.

The City Council on Monday is scheduled to consider amending the zoning ordinance to incorporate restrictions from the firearms ordinance on where gun stores may operate.

One leading example, covered in Chapter 5 of “Uncertain Justice,” is gun rights. In District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago, the court set in motion a major Second Amendment lawmaking project. Although courts have thus far moved cautiously in developing gun rights, and have only rarely invalidated firearms laws, the long-term significance of this pair of opinions must not be understated. In courts, legislatures, law schools and popular discourse, they have lent the Supreme Court’s imprimatur to claims that our fundamental charter protects an individual right to keep and bear arms.

In a fifth of the world's nations, people are legally allowed to resist leaders who have overstepped their bounds.

Thailand’s Red-Shirt and Yellow-Shirt factions don’t agree on much, but they do have one thing in common: invoking Section 69 of the now-suspended Thai Constitution, which grants citizens a “right to peacefully resist any act committed to obtain powers to rule the country by means not in accordance with the modus operandi as provided in the Constitution.”

“The Obama administration has happily been pressuring banks to cut off funds to firearms retailers,” Gottlieb asserted, “who serve law-abiding citizens interested in protecting their homes and families, while turning loose terrorists who pose a clear and present danger to those same American families."

Last week, the National Shooting Sports Foundation revealed that it “has been investigating the possible role of the federal government in influencing banks in their lending and business banking relationship decisions regarding companies” in the firearms industry.

In his new book, This Nonviolent Stuff’ll Get You Killed: How Guns Made The Civil Rights Movement Possible, journalist Charles Cobb shows how important guns were not only to leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr. but also to many black Southerners who “believed in both nonviolence and self-defense.”

According to The Root, Cobb focuses on “how armed black Southerners helped fight for Civil Rights.”

The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has declined to charge a 27-year-old Westland man who allegedly fired a fatal shot on a 33-year-old Detroit man at an apartment complex on Fort Street on Sunday.

The man was released from custody after prosecutors determined that the Westland man acted in self-defense, Lincoln Park police said Thursday.

Springfield XD-S 4-inch .45 ACP now available

Springfield is following up on expanding its recent XD-S series of pistols with the launch of the XD-S 4-inch .45 ACP. The company introduced a 4-inch version of the popular XD-S at the top of this year chambered for 9mm. Now the same pistol is available in John Browning’s caliber.

The one and only significant change to the XD-S 4-inch is the longer slide assembly. The original XD-S pistols are offered with 3.3-inch barrels in 9mm and .45 ACP, so people have been asking for and anticipating a .45-caliber 4-inch model since the day the 4-inch model was introduced.

I have advocated for more responsible firearm requirements for a very long time. I have seen and heard all the propaganda that the gun rights folks have said, and it is selective logic combined with outright lies and myths that feed the frenzy.
 

Putting Second Amendment in a chokehold

Here is how the scheme works. First, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which is responsible not only for insuring bank deposits but also for examining and overseeing financial institutions, declared ammunition and firearms sales to be “high-risk” activities, subjecting them to additional scrutiny. Then, early last year, the Justice Department launched an effort called Operation Choke Point to target banks and payment processors serving these “high-risk” industries. The program was purportedly designed to combat mass-market consumer fraud, but has served to sever banking access to perfectly legal businesses in a number of industries, including the gun industry.

The County Line Shooting Center will remain open while District Judge Bruce Boyer considers a motion by the range’s attorney for a summary judgment to end the lawsuit.

During courtroom proceedings Friday, attorney Charles Cotton of Friendswood, a board member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) who is representing the gun range, asked Boyer to rule on his motion for summary judgment, which, if granted, would promptly end the case — before proceeding with further court testimony in the lawsuit.

Anti-gun Seattle Mayor Ed Murray wasted no time trying to exploit yesterday’s fatal shooting at Seattle Pacific University, but his remarks are being overshadowed by talk of heroics credited to a student who pepper-sprayed and physically took down the suspected shooter, identified this morning as Aaron Ybarra, who could make his first court appearance today.

Likewise, the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility, which is pushing Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure, quickly issued a statement yesterday that Seattle “has once again been touched by gun violence…”
