Friction between branches historical
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

William and Mary were crowned joint monarchs of England but not before they assented to a Declaration of Rights limiting royal prerogatives, making Parliament supreme, guaranteeing the right to bear arms and a number of other basic rights that American founding fathers included in the Constitution 100 years later.

Whether it's the "divine right of kings" or executive privilege, there is built in friction between the executive and legislative in western democracies.

That's probably a good thing.

By all appearances, rapper Ja Rule didn't take his arrest this week on il legal gun charges too seriously - after all, what's a bail hearing if not an opportunity to sign autographs? Celebrities behaving badly, then basking in the publicity: It's not an uncommon occurrence. But this particular case deserves special attention, as it may well test the mettle of a vital new law.
 

Gun-bashing on YouTube

Michelle Malkin comments on the YouTube Democrats' comments on guns.

"CNN host Anderson Cooper noted that Mr. Richardson has "one of the highest NRA ratings." Mr. Richardson ran so fast from his record, you could see the Road Runner puff of cartoon smoke billowing at the base of his podium.

Mr. Cooper rescued Mr. Richardson by turning to The Smirk from Delaware. "Sen. Biden, are you going to be able to keep his 'baby' safe?" Snide Joe grabbed his opening: "I'll tell you what, if that is his baby, he needs help."

Submitter's comment: Does Richardson have a high NRA rating or will Cooper be called on his lie? Either we are equal or we are not. Good people ought to be armed where they will, with wits and guns and the truth.

Before getting too excited about legislation that would identify the mentally disturbed in background checks now required for legitimate gun purchases from licensed dealers, one should realize that only those certified as a threat to themselves or others would be included. There are a number of other ways even those who are so judged can get weapons and escape detection.

'ThisWeek' is reporting reasons for which several Central Ohio legislators, including state senators Tim Schaffer, Steve Stivers, and David Goodman and state representatives Larry Flowers, Jay Hottinger and Jon Peterson, are supportive of Castle Doctrine legislation (SB184/HB264), recently introduced by State Senator Steve Buehrer.

...

As the newspaper reports, under the legislation, any person who has successfully established an affirmative defense to criminal liability for the use of deadly force would have no civil liability to the person injured.

...published a second editorial criticizing the recent bipartisan actions by Congress to deny access to federal gun sales and ownership data to local elected officials and police departments, unless the data is requested during the prosecution of a specific crime committed with a specific gun. The editorial asked, "Really now, what sensible person would resist legislation that would give local governments and police agencies access to data tracking gun sales?" I can't claim to be the most sensible person around (witness my quixotic efforts to influence the Times Union editorial board on matters like this), but I care very much about this issue.

Naiesha Pearson was at a South Bronx Labor Day picnic when a bullet tore into her 10-year-old body almost two years ago. Sirens blazing, an ambulance rushed her to the hospital, where she died on an operating room table. Her community, long accustomed to violence, mourned. And her aunt, Gloria Cruz, decided to take action. On Aug. 18, Cruz, 47, who heads the Bronx chapter of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, will participate in the seventh annual Rally to Stop the Violence in the Bronx. Organized by Cruz and founder Bernard Smith, who lost his 19-year-old son and 32-year-old nephew to gun violence in 2000, the rally will commemorate the deaths of loved ones lost to violence.

"...Every member saw that the existing system would ever be ineffectual, unless its laws operated on individuals, as military coercion was neither eligible nor practicable..."

"...It became, therefore, necessary to bottom it on the people themselves, by giving them an immediate interest and agency in the government..."

Iraq: US, Puppet Troops Raid, Rob Homes, Arrest 54 People In Abu Ghraib

Residents of Abu Ghraib told Quds Press that the Americans and their Iraqi puppet army allies stormed into dozens of houses in the neighborhoods of az-Zaytun, ash-Shuhada’, ash-Shurtah, and al-Khan, arresting 54 people and robbing the houses of cash. The Americans and their allies also stole the light arms that the local people had licenses to keep for self-defense.

Ed.: Another sad, hopefully unintentional, consequence of the war in Iraq: our troops are getting proficient in storming homes and forcibly disarming citizens.
 

'Which Republicans - if any -- Will Shoot Machine Guns At GOP Fundraiser?'

Let me put it simply: Guns in this country are the legal and lethal force which backs citizen authority under our system. Any attack on weapons is a direct attack to undermine that citizen authority by undermining the force. There can be positively no law against this legal force backing your authority. there is no such thing as a sensible gun law. There simply isn't any moral reason or legal reason good enough for undermining that force backing the authority of the electorate. With me so far?

Every year in the United States, about 200 people kill someone in self-defense. It's legal. It's often necessary. But it can emotionally scar the people who do the killing.

...

At least four times this month, would-be crime victims in Charlotte fought back against people trying to rob them. Two suspects were killed, two injured.

...

Four Charlotteans say they understand how she feels. All fatally shot someone while trying to protect themselves. None was charged. But all four say the killings altered their lives.

The Constitution says, twice, that no citizen can be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. So anyone claiming Bush or Clinton or comic book shop owners can negate this clause is being traitorous to America.

This also is not debatable; it’s there for the universe to see and read.

We have certain rights guaranteed to us, like the right to bear arms, to free expression, to being safeguarded against unreasonable searches and seizures. (How will we know if it’s unreasonable? The answer is open, honest, and public debate on the matter.)

We need you to think.

We need you to read the founding fiber of your nation and, if necessary, staple the Bill of Rights to your right hand ...

The notice of intent to sue, filed Friday, seeks $10 million from state and local agencies.

The notice says the 17-year-old "has suffered and will continue to suffer emotional anguish and distress" because he witnessed the fatal shooting of his uncle, Emil Mann, on a mountain near the New York border in April 2006. Mann died a few days later from his wounds.

Officer Chad Walder, who authorities say shot Mann after a dispute over all-terrain vehicle riding, has been charged with reckless manslaughter.

NH: Sport shooters have nothing to do with crime in Manchester

In response to a Manchester Republican Committee machine gun shoot event, Pappas called it "not just in poor taste; it is downright offensive."

What's offensive is implying that law-abiding citizens who choose to shoot for sport are equally as dangerous as criminals. I guess if Pappas had it his way, no one would be allowed to hunt, participate in shooting sports or arm and protect themselves. The only people with guns would be criminals who ignore the law anyway.

I support the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. In fact, I rely on it and would suggest our citizenry become more familiar with it.

On more than one occasion I've needed to rely on those rights.
 

Time for cop-citizen alliance

Over the years, I've noticed a schism develop between many law enforcement people and ordinary "civilians" – you know, the poor schlemiels who pay their taxes, empower the high mighty and employ the cops.

This division takes many shapes and forms, but nowhere is it more obvious than on the issue of firearms.

Many police officers have come to believe guns are only safe in their hands – that they cannot be entrusted into the custody of untrained, unqualified citizens.

Obviously, this is a non-starter from a constitutional, freedom-oriented perspective. But there's a practical new reason for cops to begin rethinking where this anti-gun hysteria is leading our country.

Peeking from the door of a Virginia home to speak with Daily News reporter Nicole Bode was a man who has helped inflict terrible damage on the U.S. and New York City. He is Richard Norad, and his gun shop peddled weapons used in more than 1,000 crimes - including the murder of Officer Russel Timoshenko. Norad said he was sorry. Sorry is of no use now, but it is better than the bloody fanaticism of the NRA and its enablers in Congress, who shield irresponsible gun merchants from scrutiny. Thanks to them, the nasty Tiahrt Amendment bars authorities from identifying the tiny percentage of dealers who flood the streets with weapons used in crimes.

NY: Sex Suit Could Be Problem for Bloomberg

By SARA KUGLER
Mayor Michael Bloomberg speaks his mind and that is a big part of his cachet in anything-goes New York. But new details from a sexual harassment lawsuit he settled in 2000 and other racy comments over the years show how his blunt style could prove a liability if he runs for president as an independent.

Before his election as mayor in 2001, Bloomberg was the target of a sexual harassment suit by a female executive who accused him of making repeated raunchy sexual comments while he was chief executive of his financial company, Bloomberg LP.

Bloomberg denied the accusations. Both sides were barred from commenting because of confidentiality agreements.

Berger, 17, learned the self-defense tactics with ease. Earlier in the week, she and 31 other teenagers also learned how to shoot a handgun, search a building for a suspect, march in perfect cadence, and make a bed to military standard.

This is summer camp, state police-style. There is no swimming or canoeing, no s'mores or bonfires. There is no "contraband," like cellphones, iPods, stereos or - as Berger learned the first day - stuffed polar bears.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No one can read our Constitution without concluding that the people who wrote it wanted their government severely limited; the words "no" and "not" employed in restraint of government power occur 24 times in the first seven articles of the Constitution and 22 more times in the Bill of Rights. — EDMUND A.
