"Over at Opinio Juris, Kenneth Anderson has an interesting post about last week's gun control conference at the United Nations, and a New York Times puff piece thereon, written by C.J. Chivers."

"After noting U.S. concerns about the U.N. becoming a venue attacks on American gun ownership, the Times explains:"
"The United Nations and advocates of gun control have said that such fears are unfounded, and that there is no effort to impose standards on nations with traditions of civilian ownership, or to restrict hunting. The programs, they said, apply largely to areas suffering from insurgencies or war." ...

"The Gun Owners of America have launched a campaign to help support the family of a man sentenced to 30 months in jail for a rifle that misfired."

"Officials with GOA today announced they will be working to generate support for the wife and three children of David Olofson, on whom WND has reported in the past, while a GOA-orchestrated appeal of his conviction proceeds."

"'Not only is Gun Owners of American representing Olofson during his appeal, we have set up an Olofson relief fund so that his wife and mother of their three young children will be able to keep making her mortgage and car payments,' Larry Pratt, chief of the organization, said in an editorial provided to WND." ...
 

Gun ownership is essential to freedom

"The writer's one fail-safe solution to firearm fatalities is the abrogation of a part of the Bill of Rights of our country's Constitution. He proposes that denying all gun ownership to private citizens will save lives by keeping all guns out of our homes. He has no use for the Second Amendment, despite a recent Supreme Court decision confirming the individual right of all law-abiding citizens to possess guns."

"He apparently has no use for self-defense either, which is the basic intent of that amendment — not only to defend our country from foreign invaders and insurrectionists as a militia, but also, and equally importantly, so all law-abiding citizens can defend themselves against criminal attack upon the home or the person." ...

"'America's 80 million law-abiding gun owners will support a developing congressional effort to thwart politicians in the Nation's Capital seeking to undermine the Supreme Court decision in the historic District of Columbia v. Heller case,' right to self-defense advocate John M. Snyder said here today."

"'After the Court threw out the D.C. handgun ban ... D.C. officials thumbed their noses at the Court,' continued Snyder, Manager of Telum Associates, LL.C., and Public Affairs Director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. 'They acted recently to continue the ban on semiautomatic handguns. They told Dick Anthony Heller, who won the case, he still cannot register his .45 caliber Colt 1911 handgun.'" ...

"When last heard from, Smith & Wesson was gaining public attention from their marketing of a high-powered revolver that could penetrate the body armor most commonly worn by America's law enforcement personnel."

"Now the company is working to wheedle its way back into the news cycle with the announcement that they're producing a 'commemorative' snub-nosed 'lightweight carry revolver' celebrating the recent Supreme Court decision in District of Columbia v. Heller."

"In response to the July 9 column from Debra Saunders ("High court finally recognizes a basic human right"), the Supreme Court ruling on the Second Amendment is not and will not be the last word." ...

"It overturned ... U.S. v. Miller, which upheld a state law banning sawed-off shotguns, because the guns held no reasonable relationship to a well-regulated militia. Depending on the makeup of the Supreme Court, this ruling can be overturned by another Supreme Court."

"The Second Amendment is not meant for individuals to own guns for their own ends. We who want our streets safe will work to overturn this bad ruling. The Second Amendment is meant to guard against federal disarmament of well-regulated militias." ...

"This is in response to the strong reaction to my July 8 letter — all of it critical, and almost all of it critical of something other than the point of my letter."

"My letter referred to those who govern us and their propensity for establishing an agenda, then selectively choosing facts to support that agenda. Politicians have long done this, but now the Supreme Court has seen fit to follow this path in its interpretation of the Second Amendment."

"It has not been my concern that the amendment happened to deal with gun ownership. ... My critics have chosen to change the subject of my letter to that of gun ownership and have further decided I must be against such ownership." ...
 

Second Amendment - Far From Hearing The Last Word

"We are far from hearing the last word on the U.S. Supreme Court’s Second Amendment ruling on an individual’s right to keep and bear arms. In D.C. v. Heller, the high court gave gun enthusiasts a momentary period of celebration and exultation which quickly turned solemn upon close examination of the Court’s finding."

"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence maintains that the Heller decision 'enthusiastically embraces and endorses reasonable [gun] controls.' In fact, before the ink was dry on the justices' signatures, District of Columbia council members began formulating new measures that required current and new gun owners to keep their weapons under lock and key, keep them disassembled and unable to function." ...

"The registration process and mandates for obtaining a gun permit are burdensome and highly restrictive. The process, according to city officials, could take months ..."

"I was very glad to hear LeBlanc was alright, but a very important question came to mind: What if she had a firearm to defend herself? Would this incident have happened?"

"My answer is probably not. The thief was unarmed. If Leblanc had possessed a firearm and simply pointed the weapon - loaded or unloaded - the thief would have probably run. I can imagine simple thieves like this are just trying to make a quick buck. As soon as things get complicated they usually run." ...

"WBBM's Bob Roberts reports."

"The ban has not been enforced since last month's U.s. Supreme court ruling affirming individual gun ownership rights under the Second Amendment."

"Repeal of the 19-year-old ban is being done quietly, in stark contrast to the intense debate that marked its 1989 passage and subsequent enforcement. No one indicated a desire to speak on the ban when the repeal ordinance was introduced two weeks ago, either from the public or on the board."

"Village President Chris Canning said he has not heard any impassioned arguments for or against keeping it since the Supreme Court's ruling." ...

"Many hunters and gun owners were shocked to learn that last Sunday Gov. Deval L. Patrick filed a supplemental appropriations bill for fiscal year 2008, which, if passed, would greatly affect their pocketbooks and indirectly infringe on their second amendment rights."

"Four sections of the bill would drastically increase the cost of certain firearm licenses. Two sections would affect lawfully licensed firearm dealers by increasing their license fees from $100 for three years to $250. It also adds a $100 inspection fee in years two and three of the license. This would now turn a $100 three-year dealer's license into a $450 three-year license." ...
