"What if there was a single web site where you could go to learn about the gun rights position of every candidate in every race in every state and federal election in the US? A site where you could find voting records, editorials, and discussion groups ... A site where local grassroots organizations from all over the country come together to share information and ideas ... That web site doesn't exist, but it could exist. It could be GunVoter.org. We're not there yet, but we're working on it. We have the structure in place. The software is operating smoothly. The technical bugs have been worked out and our user base is growing, but we need your help to turn GunVoter.org into the valuable resource that it has the potential to be." ...

"Lawyers who won the historic Second Amendment gun rights case in the Supreme Court — District of Columbia v. Heller (07-290) — on Monday asked a federal judge to award them more than $3.5 million for attorneys' fees, plus $13,215.30 for expenses and court costs. In a motion and memorandum filed with U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, the attorneys said that they had achieved 'one of the most profound and important victories available under our system of justice.'"

"Their argument also suggested that this was a David vs. Goliath clash, with the attorneys on their side far outnumbered in lawyers, legal resources and government funding." ...

"The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday upheld a federal trial court ruling blocking a Wyoming law that would allow convicted domestic violence abusers to possess firearms. The court in Wyoming v. United States, as the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence had urged in its amicus brief, prohibited Wyoming from implementing its law to rearm domestic violence abusers."

"The 10th Circuit ruling comes as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to consider a case in its upcoming term concerning domestic violence abusers' gun possession, United States v. Hayes. The Brady Center filed a brief in Hayes urging the Supreme Court to overturn a circuit court ruling that could require that the names of thousands of dangerous abusers be purged from [NICS]." ...

"In 2007, Senator Barack Obama stood up for a gun owner. He endorsed Chicago Alderman Dorothy Tillman in her Democratic primary. Not only was she a gun owner, but she had even pulled a gun on her colleagues during a contentious 1991 ward redistricting hearing, according to eyewitnesses. Tillman, best known for demanding to be served by black (not white) waiters, and for advocating reparations for slavery, narrowly lost her race despite Obama’s support."

"It would be only a slight exaggeration to say that this was the strongest effort Obama has ever made to support gun rights." ...

"Eight years ago, actor Charlton Heston fired up an overflow crowd of union coal miners in Beckley with a grim warning about Al Gore over Second Amendment rights."

"Much has changed since George W. Bush painted West Virginia red that year with the help of coal miners and applied a second coat four years later, says House Majority Whip Mike Caputo ..."

"Caputo, an official of the United Mine Workers of America in Fairmont, is painfully aware of how union miners broke ranks and fled into the Bush camp in the 2000 presidential sweepstakes."

"Not only did miners hold suspicions that Gore opposed gun rights but posed a threat to the coal industry over his strident environmental beliefs." ...

"To no one's surprise, the NRA is urging its members to help elect Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona to the presidency."

"But NRA officials are worried that Democratic nominee Barack Obama of Illinois could make some headway among gun owners this year, and they're blaming a little-known group run by Ray Schoenke ..."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

State Treasurer Jack Markell says if he is elected governor, he will do more to keep guns away from criminals.

Speaking Monday in Wilmington, he said he wants to eliminate a loophole in the law which allows people to buy guns at gun shows without background checks.

He also favors limits on bulk purchases of guns, which he believes lead to weapons being resold on the streets.

Markell's opponent in next month's Democratic primary, Lt. Gov. John Carney has released a plan that would focus law enforcement efforts on "hot spots" and people who buy guns for those who are prohibited from doing so.

Carney has also said he would urge prosecutors to stop dropping gun charges in plea agreements.

... "... Another of Mr. Mortensen's bill drafts for the 2009 session would clarify that Nevada homeowners have a right to defend themselves with deadly force in the face of an intruder."

"At least 15 states have already adopted the so-called 'castle doctrine' in recent years, which states homeowners do not have to retreat in the face of a break-in."

"Thankfully, Nevada's police agencies and district attorneys have generally exhibited common sense, usually opting against trying to prosecute individuals who use force to protect their lives and property in the face of a potentially violent criminal. But Mr. Mortensen's legislation would add an extra level of protection for those forced into such unfortunate situations." ...

"Stealing a scene from a hit movie, two Brooklyn cops used their patrol car to 'do doughnuts' in a Bay Ridge park, a woman who witnessed the crazy stunt said Monday."

"The cigar-chomping officers tore through a baseball field ... spinning the car wildly in circles and almost hitting a pair of kids on tricycles, said January Hagan, 31."

"'I was shocked - it was startling,' Hagan said. 'The police car came within inches of killing two little children.'"

"She and her husband were out for a quiet stroll ... when they saw an odd sight: a cruiser parked in an outfield."

"Then - in a scene straight out of last summer's comedy 'Superbad' - the officers revved up and started doing doughnuts, Hagan said." ...

"A June murder of two young people in rural Waleetka has provided the excuse for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) to behave as if the Bill of Rights is an impediment to be overcome in order to employ effective police procedures."

"In their search for the killer, the OSBI sent a letter to some sixty owners of .40 caliber handguns ... in the community where the victims had lived. The letter 'invited' the owners to bring the guns in for testing."

"This letter raises disturbing questions."

"The first question is -- what is the probable cause that would justify sending the letter to the selected handgun owners? If there were probable cause, why were no warrants obtained per the Fourth Amendment?" ...

Autumn Frodelius, 13, of Fayetteville, showed recently she's got what it takes to win when it comes to competitive shooting.

According to Ron B. Frodelius, her proud grandfather: "At two recent Fayetteville-Manlius Rod and Gun Club rifle shooting, metallic silhoutte matches, Autumn, a first-time shooter (she never held a rifle prior to the matches) won both!

"She won the junior division (twice) beating all boys and girls to age 16. She was shooting at metal targets, 35 to 100 yards, using .22 rimfire rifles. She won two trophies and two perfect "5" pins for perfect scores at 50 and 75 yards.

The grandfather credited her wins with the fact she "had a good rifle, young eyes ... and a "I can win" attitude.

"The sounds of good, safe, family-friendly fun echoed just outside of Oxford, Ohio last weekend as Buckeye Firearms hosted the first regional 'Gun Skills Challenge'. Just over forty shooters turned out to show support for Buckeye Firearms, meet and network with other area shooters, and generally enjoy a full day of shooting drills and scenarios." ...

"... The event was formatted as a slightly scaled back version of the Buckeye Firearms 'Buckeye Blast'. This more relaxed and family friendly focus brought in at least six Father/Son, Father/Daughter, Husband/Wife groups for the event. Being able to share this event with family members was a big draw for some as noted by a thank you email sent by one attendee." ...

"Legal or illegal? Harrold Independent School District teachers, if they have a conceal-carry permit and are cleared by the school board, can come to school armed."

"The district says it's legal. Others point to a law that says armed campus personnel must be commissioned peace officers."

"Whatever the case, it's ill-advised. For one thing, schools are among the safest places to be."

"Saturation coverage of isolated school shootings has created the false impression that children aren’t safe at school. They are."

"For another thing, the proliferation of concealed guns raises the possibility of firearms accidents, thefts and vigilante-type actions that short-circuit the legal process." ...
