"Well, why not? This is still America, as much as Obama's trying to fundamentally transform the place, and as long as you steer clear of anything the Secret Service might not find humor or understanding in, you’re still free to tell the guy what you think of him, or to ask him a question, or to urge him to... well, use your best judgment there."

Suppose Trayvon Martin had pulled out a gun and shot George Zimmerman? Or perhaps, stabbed and killed him, since at 17 years old he was too young to legally possess a concealed firearm. Martin, after all, was being followed by Zimmerman that February night in 2012; not the other way around. So, who was standing what ground? Why was it assumed that the slightly built Martin was threatening to the bigger Zimmerman? To state the obvious, Martin is dead, so we do not have his side of the story.

WHEN a doctor asks her patient a question, is the doctor engaged in free speech protected by the Constitution? If you think the answer is obvious, think again. According to a recent decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, everything a doctor says to a patient is “treatment,” not speech, and the government has broad authority to prohibit doctors from asking questions on particular topics without any First Amendment scrutiny at all.
 

AL: Strange steps back from guns at polls comments

Attorney General Luther Strange Wednesday appeared to step back from comments made earlier this week that suggested he would support legislation to ban the open carry of firearms at polling places.

Earlier this month, Strange's office issued an opinion that said communities could not ban individuals from openly carrying firearms from polling places, after a request from the Chambers County Commission. The opinion, citing a 2013 law that greatly expanded open carry in the state, said polling places were not on a list of areas where individuals were specifically banned from openly carrying firearms. However, it noted that some areas where people vote, such as courthouses, fall under that ban.

Sales for Sturm, Ruger & Co. have fallen for two consecutive quarters, as Quartz reported on Wednesday. The gun manufacturer had seen huge growth in the early part of 2013, but that growth has begun to taper off. As Quartz notes, this is to some extent a return to normal (though the company's stock had a bad week).
 

WA: Gun Activist Compares Firearm Registration To Nazi Tattooing Of Jews

After a National Rifle Association lobbyist equated a proposal to expand background checks to the Nazi policies of Adolf Hitler, a prominent guns rights activist defended the offensive comparison and took it further, comparing gun registration to the Nazi practice of tattooing Jews with identification numbers.

The NRA is under fire after its Washington state lobbyist Brian Judy was heard telling opponents of the state's background check proposal that one of the proposal's primary supporters, who is Jewish, is "stupid" because "he's put half-a-million dollars toward this policy, the same policy that led to his family getting run out of Germany by the Nazis."
 

Doctors to appeal federal court’s ruling in Florida ‘Docs v Glocks’ case

A group of physicians represented by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence plans to appeal the ruling of a federal appeals court that upholds Florida’s prohibition law on asking patients about guns.

The suit, Wollschlaeger v. Governor of the State of Florida, better known as the “Docs vs. Glocks” case, was a challenge to Florida’s 2011 Firearm Owners’ Privacy Act that discouraged health care workers from asking patients questions about firearms that were not directly relevant to medical care or safety. On July 25, a panel of judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in a 2-1 decision found that Florida’s law was “valid regulation of professional conduct that has only incidental effect on physicians’ speech.”

Gun control advocates are learning the downside of getting their way. Recently, a federal judge struck down the District of Columbia's ban on the carrying of concealed handguns. Anti-gun forces have been losing in legislatures for a long time. Now they are finding that even where they win, they lose.

Washington used to have the strictest gun laws in America. Besides the prohibition of concealed guns, all firearms had to be registered and handgun ownership was forbidden.

Citing the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller and its 2010 ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago, as well as the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal’s Peruta v. County of San Diego ruling year, Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. ruled in Palmer v. District of Columbia that “there is no longer any basis on which this court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional.”

The sports aspect of shooting guns may not be restricted to country boy stereotype anymore, as new statistics show the emerging face of today’s shooter is vastly different.

Almost half of today’s first time gun buyers in the country are female (48 percent of gun owners), usually purchasing a gun for self-defense and self-sufficiency. Also, most people buying guns today for the first time include people ages 22-30 living in suburban areas, according to a survey by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which keeps a tally on all things related on firearms retail trends.

Massachusetts lawmakers on Friday tightened the state's already strict gun laws by passing a measure that gives police chiefs authority to turn down a resident's requests to buy a rifle or shotgun if they believe the person may be a danger.

House lawmakers overrode objections from gun-rights advocates in the state Senate who had opposed the measure, worrying that police chiefs could abuse the authority to deny firearms to law-abiding citizens.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 600-page SAFE Act continues to anger people in upstate New York, a year after the apparently hastily-assembled legislation passed in the wake of the terrible shootings at Sandy Hook elementary school. Take a drive anywhere through our towns and you’ll see signs urging repeal of the SAFE Act, and even signs calling for Cuomo’s impeachment because of the SAFE Act.

Dylan Hockley was a mischievous 6-year-old boy who loved chocolate, Superman and playing with his older brother.

After he was gunned down Dec. 14, 2012, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., his mother, Nicole Hockley, made it her mission to speak out and, by doing so, hopefully reduce the chance some other mother would one day also find herself facing a crowd, clutching a photo of her slain child and fighting back tears.

"Nothing will bring my son back," she said Friday in Allentown. "But I am here so other parents don't have to stand here and feel this way."

Hockley visited the Lehigh Valley to gather support for federal legislation called "Promoting Healthy Minds for Safer Communities."

MO: Kansas City Council pulls the plug on open carry

In a unanimous 9-0 vote, the K.C. Council voted Thursday to ban the practice of open carry in the Show Me State’s largest city.

The ordinance, set to come into effect in ten days, would amend the city’s codes on weapons to prohibit the open carrying of a firearm. Mayor Sly James (D), who has been outspoken in his crusade to limit guns on Kansas City’s streets, proposed the measure on July 17.

“We’re saying this does not make sense in the middle of Kansas City, Mo.,” James told the Council earlier this month. “If you want to do this out in a rural area, that’s cool. How much would you shop at the Plaza if you walk down there and every third person had a rifle on their back?”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908 [by an Indian extremist opposed to Gandhi's agreement with Smuts], whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defend me, I told him it was his duty to defend me even by using violence. Hence it was that I took part in the Boer War, the so-called Zulu Rebellion and [World War I]. Hence also do I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. — Mohandas K. Gandhi, Young India, August 11, 1920 from Fischer, Louis ed.,The Essential Gandhi, 1962
