... "'This case is mired in Gov. Corruption,' Vince Cefalu declared ... Cefalu himself is a previously-promoted agent who ran afoul of management for objecting to illegal wiretapping. Escalating retaliation, including for his providing further evidence of management wrongdoing, resulted in his being illegally fired and then reinstated in a settlement that included $85,000 in damages, legal fees, and an expunging of adverse information from his record."

"'So this Judge TAKES the case away from Allegra when he insists that Dobyns has a right to depose DOJ Attys,' Cefalu continued. 'There is ample evidence that DOJ obstructed justice. Pray for my brother. Corruption prevails.'" ...

"If you believe Air Marshals are a good idea, then you should believe that armed citizens on airplanes are a better idea. For one thing, as cnn.com reveals, the U.S. Air Marshal system is in shambles. The headline pretty much says it all: Sleep-deprived, medicated, suicidal and armed: Federal air marshals in disarray. The exposé is based on information provided by the newly formed Air Marshal Association, so it’s skewed towards the negative. Nevertheless, it’s a frightening portrait of an anti-terrorist defense force that’s highly compromised . . ." ...

"An Akron, Ohio homeowner was arraigned yesterday on a charge of voluntary manslaughter in the Aug. 7 shooting death of a man who had apparently broken into his home, and some ... are suggesting that instead of being prosecuted, he ought to be congratulated."

"While this was happening, the man arrested following last week’s deadly rampage in Puyallup was in court yesterday facing 17 charges including first-degree murder. His alleged crimes terrorized an entire neighborhood ... and one is now left to wonder whether Pierce County authorities might have prosecuted any neighbor who might have intervened and shot the suspect dead in his tracks."

"'Commenting on a gruesome case of domestic homicide that occurred in Geismar, Louisiana on August 9, 2015, Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley advised women to do the following,' the anti-gunners at csgv.org report, accurately enough. 'Get your concealed weapons permit. Ladies, learn how to safely handle a weapon, learn how to safely store a weapon, and when you’re in a situation like this shoot him in your back yard before he gets in your house. Drop him.

"Years ago, Nick bought me a 10″ x 10″ steel target as a thank-you for introducing him to Texas. It was a big moment in my shooting life as I’d never actually shot at steel targets before. I was floored. Before I found out about the joys of steel, I’d bore holes in paper targets for hours with little or no feedback. In a post steel world, I got an immediate report on whether and where I’d hit or missed. After a dozen or so rounds, though, my feedback was reduced to binary hit or miss due to paint flecking off the steel. AMSEC’s Gravity Spinning Bullseye target changed my usage of steel in a major and very positive way . . ." ...

A federal appeals court in Atlanta ruled on Monday that in pursuing the racketeering action, Helga may use confidential gun company documents her lawyers obtained in connection with divorce proceedings in Austria."

"... In one suit filed under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), Helga, 79, has accused her 86-year-old industrialist ex-spouse of concealing hundreds of millions of dollars in gun profits that are rightfully hers, while also tricking her out of a substantial equity stake in Glock GmbH, the Austrian parent company." ...

"Much has been written about the increasing number of women entering the firearms marketplace. Back in March, Fortune magazine proclaimed Guns are barreling back, thanks to women. 'According to the National Sporting Goods Association, from 2001 to 2013 there was a 60% rise in women who participate in target shooting. On the hunting side, there was 85% growth.' Still not the majority of the market but a huge market shift nonetheless. What’s not getting ink . . ."

"My first rifle was a .22 Henry lever action and a Marlin in .357 was the first centerfire rifle I shot. Unfortunately, by the time I was searching for a lever gun in a pistol cartridge, the options were limited. Winchester was no longer making rifles in the U.S. and Marlin was suffering teething problems from a factory relocation. An 1873 by Uberti was appealing, but a bit out of my price range. Rossis were inexpensive but disassembly of the 1892 action was daunting. There were just too many little slotted screws. I tend to favor guns made in the U.S., which didn’t work in favor of a Rossi or Uberti . . ." ...

"I support the Second Amendment. I believe people should be allowed to own firearms and I believe they should be permitted to buy as many as they want, with 50 billion rounds of ammunition to go along with those guns if they feel that's what they need to feel safe after the sun goes down."

"What I don't support is the ridiculous lack of laws governing background checks for private transactions. Licensed firearms dealers are mandated to run background checks before they sell a firearm to anyone, but the law in 33 states doesn't extend to private sales."

"That's a problem." ...
 

A Culture Clash Over Guns Infiltrates the Backcountry

"As a lover of ancient rock art, Steve Acerson usually roams Utah’s backcountry searching for images of hunters and rams carved on boulders and canyon walls. But one morning, on a hillside speckled with those prehistoric petroglyphs, he was also finding signs of a younger civilization: Shotgun shells. Bullets. Shredded juniper trees. Exploded cans of spray paint."

"'It’s all been shot,' he said. 'It’s just destroying everything.'"

"America’s cultural divide over guns has gone into the woods. As growing numbers of hikers and backpackers flood national forests and backcountry trails searching for solitude, they are increasingly clashing with recreational target shooters, out for the weekend to plug rounds into trees, targets and mountainsides." ...
 

MI: Lawmakers should have the courage to keep guns out of schools

"Nothing says "Welcome back to school" like a Michigan court ruling that people can openly carry guns on Michigan school grounds. You heard right. Ten days ago, a Genesee County Circuit Court judge ruled in favor of Kenneth Herman, the man who filed a lawsuit after he was denied access to his daughter's elementary school while openly carrying a pistol." ...

"But until our elected officials act to change existing laws, Michigan schools across the state will be powerless to keep guns out of our schools. That's why Moms Demand Action is urging lawmakers to pass a bill to prohibit guns in schools ..." ...

Submitter's Note: The schools will have to follow the law, but the criminals have no such restrictions, since they don't follow the law.

"Guns are scary. BLAMMO! Someone dies. It’s so … violent. Sure, other forms of death are violent, too. If you’ve ever seen the aftermath of a particularly bad car crash, well, let’s just say it ain’t pretty at all. The thing that freaks out a lot of anti-gunners and firearms freedom fence straddlers: it’s so easy to shoot and kill someone! Of course, it isn’t. And it doesn’t happen that often, statistically speaking. But the idea of scary gun death is out there, somewhere. Actually, it’s right there, in the lead of every anti-gun editorial ever written.

"As college students enter and return to universities this fall, it's a good time to address guns on college campuses. Gun rights have become a lightning rod for many conversations and political views. While our nation has always had the Second Amendment guaranteeing the right to keep and bear arms, this issue has become more volatile."

"There is nothing wrong with guns when used appropriately and safely. However, our nation seems so focused on increasing gun availability that we forget that guns are not the answer to all our problems."

"I do not see the need for college students to be armed on campus, a place where learning and mental growth should be the focus. ..." ...

"The ongoing battle over the Adler shotgun in Australia has taken a new plot twist. PM Tony Abbott who last week personally intervened to ban the Adler, pulled another fast one over firearms owners heads. Staying true to form, in the early hours of Friday morning Abbott moved the goalposts and changed the Customs Act to prohibit the importation of lever action shotguns over 5 round capacity. Not really surprising, particularly when one reads Tony Abbott’s pre-election promise to firearm owners." ...
