Ohio Rev. Code § 2923.13 bans gun possession by (among others) anyone who “has been convicted of any offense involving the illegal possession ... in any drug of abuse.” (Ohio Rev. Code § 2923.14 allows the person to petition for relief from this disability after the person’s prison, probation, and parole is up, but any such relief is discretionary with the court, and turns on the judge’s opinion about whether the person “appears likely to continue to” lead “a law-abiding life.”)

A good government group is questioning Rensselaer County's acceptance of a National Rifle Association Foundation grant to arm three county probation officers. County officials view the $2,499.70 grant as relief for taxpayers, while Common Cause New York consider it as turning over government operations to outside influences.

Four years ago, an experienced gun owner in Pembroke Pines named Reynaldo Gonzalez made an exception he will forever regret.

His 15-year-old daughter, Yamel Trigo, begged to show off his guns, usually locked away except when Gonzalez went to the range, to a visiting teenage cousin. Out came the guns and a camera, Yamel recalls. The cousin posed with a .22-caliber rifle, which Yamel’s dad thought was unloaded.




 

Tactical Scenario: Armed Robbery
Submitted by: Anonymous

Below is an older armed robbery video showing four individuals returning home from an evening out on the town. They are hanging out in an apartment complex entrance area. Everything looks fine until they let an individual in the secured building and he pulls a revolver out of his waist band to rob them. Now in the video, all four of the victims attempt to disarm the robber, which ends with one being seriously injured and another dead. The robber gets away.

Submitter's note: Police and politicians regularly say, just give the crook what he wants, don't resist and let him walk away so no one is hurt. Well, what if you're the guy who didn't make the move on the bad guy but got shot in the head because your buddy did? You can't control the people around you, someone else turned it into a fight and he wound up dead.
 

Norway: Norway terror attacks: Firearms 'a tradition'

FIREARMS ownership in Norway stands at the highest level in Western Europe, with one third of households owning a gun. As a nation of passionate hunters and with a long tradition of world-class sports shooting, rifle ownership is part of society.

Although gun control is tightly regulated by the Norwegian government, citizens can apply for either a hunting licence, the most common permit, or a sports shooting licence, which is also popular.

Did Obama and Attorney General Holder secretly allow U.S. purchased weapons to wind up in the hands of the Mexican drug cartels to justify a new round of federal gun-control laws? The evidence for this impeachable offense is growing.

On Tuesday, the House Oversight Committee will be convened by Chairman Darrell Issa to consider the latest revelations involving "Operation Fast and Furious," an exploding scandal now known as Gunwalker.




 

Norway: A Postscript

They are still counting the bodies in Norway, and it is probably unseemly to start making political points. I haven’t seen any information about the apparent perpetrator, so his motivations (if any, other than insanity) are unknown at this point. But one observation seems to be in order; no doubt, it has already been made by many others.

What happened on Utoya island was that the murderer, dressed as a policeman and heavily armed, took a boat to the island, ordered teenagers to assemble around him, and started shooting. His rampage continued, as I understand it, until a SWAT team apparently dispatched from Oslo arrived on the island and shot him. In the meantime, he murdered at least 80 kids.

As you read this, some of this area's best young shooters are 1,700 miles from home, gearing up for the annual NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge international competition. The championship alternates between Raton, N.M. and Mansfield, Pa., and members of Sullivan's Sharpshooters, a Chemung County-based team, took part in their first YHEC event at Mansfield last July.
 

OH: Protecting your home while staying within the law

Everyone's awoken to a bump in the night before. What if the source of that bump isn't your air conditioner kicking on, but a burglar? What does the law allow you to do to protect your family and property?

The proper course of action, police and lawyers said, is sensitive to the particulars of the incident, but generally the allowable level of force is different depending on whether it is your life or your DVD player being threatened. Act with too much violence and you could cross the line from victim to assailant.
 

IL: Time to allow concealed handguns

With the recent passage of a Wisconsin law, Illinois is now the only state in the nation without a concealed carry handgun law.

The other 49 states allow qualified individuals to carry guns under some circumstances. Of those, 37 states issue licenses to carry concealed weapons to people who meet certain requirements and satisfy background checks.

Many of these laws across the country also have reasonable restrictions on where permit holders would be allowed to bring guns, excluding places such as schools, courthouses, sporting events, and other locations.

As of this morning, 51 members-- a majority--of the U.S. Senate have signed letters to President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton saying they will oppose any ATT that includes civilian firearms ownership. These strongly worded letters caution the President and Secretary of State to uphold the Constitution of the United States. As Senator Jerry Moran's letter warns, “(A)s the treaty process continues, we strongly encourage your administration to uphold our constitutional protections of civilian firearms ownership."

In 2004, a Harvard University study estimated that Americans owned at least 283 million guns. Today's total almost certainly is much higher.

In 2007, the last year for which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has complete statistics, 51 children age 12 or younger were killed by accidental firearms discharges. Twenty-five of them were age 5 or younger.

That was a bad year for the youngest victims. In the eight previous years, an average of 17.5 kids age 5 or younger were killed in gun accidents.
 

Obama Sets Tax Trap, GOP Takes Bait

Mike Hammond of Gun Owners of America wants lawmakers to use the debt limit to block the administration’s gun control agenda. “A vote for the debt limit without limiting anti-gun ObamaCare, illegal regulations, illegal import restrictions and Department of Justice cover-ups is a vote against the Second Amendment,” he told Human Events.

Hammond wants lawmakers to block the administration’s plan requiring gun dealers in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California to register multiple sales of long guns—a requirement his group views as patently unconstitutional. Failure to do so as part of any debt ceiling deal amounts to condoning President Obama’s gun control agenda, he argues.

Today, Nugent adds to his duties political activism. He's unapologetic about his conservative foundation. He not only defends the right to keep and bear arms, but proudly proclaims it. He enjoys being in the face of anti-hunters and animal rights activists. He's a high profile member of the NRA's Board of Directors and a staunch critic of liberal laws and liberal lawmakers--whether they are the mayor of his town or President Obama.

His last visit to West Virginia was in fact political when he stumped for Republican U.S. Senate candidate John Raese in Charleston last fall.

The massacre on the island of Utøya is certain to lead to a security review, with particular stress on how Anders Behring Breivik obtained his weapons. Norway already has some of the toughest gun laws in the world, but they were apparently easily circumvented by the killer.

A licence is required to own a gun, and the owner must provide a written statement saying why he or she wants one. Many categories of guns, including automatics and some powerful handguns, are banned from sale altogether.

NSSF’s Bill Brassard offers a reminder to gun owners encouraging all to follow the golden rules of firearm safety and to safely store their firearms when they are not in use.

The Golden Rules of gun safety deal with handling firearms, but safely storing firearms is critically important as well, especially during summertime when children may be at home or at a friend’s home–unsupervised.

The police chief of the Dutch town where a gunman killed six people and himself in early April says civilians should not be allowed to have guns.

Central Holland Superintendant Jan Stikvoort, who was responsible for issuing the firearms licence to the gunman, says he merely followed the law. “But civilians should not have weapons. They should be banned throughout the country”, he told newspaper de Volkskrant a day after the Norway massacre.

Rick Perry is not yet in the race for president, but don’t tell the the people collecting e-mail addresses alongside tables for other, declared candidates at a gun-rights rally here on Saturday.

In T-shirts reading “Americans for Rick Perry,” they buttonholed the largely male crowd, who had come to inspect the wares of companies like Controlled Chaos Arms and to test-fire a 50-caliber rifle, its shell – one to a customer, please – as big around as an Iowa corncob.
