McCain suggests "Martial Law" to solve inner-city crime problem
Submitted by: Anonymous

Appearing before the Urban League this week, John McCain revealed his plan for imposing a military dictatorship in “high crime neighborhoods” in the United States.

In other words, McCain — or rather his globalist foundation handlers — would have no problem declaring martial law in “high crime neighborhoods,” that is to say neighborhoods out of control due to the presence of aggressively competitive drug gangs selling products brought in by the CIA, otherwise known as the Cocaine Importing Agency.

McCain, of course, doesn’t care about Posse Comitatus — and, after all, the military has declared Posse Comitatus to be a myth and the Bush neocons have all but declared it dead in the water.
 

Restraining Orders Out of Control

"One day in December of 2005, Colleen Nestler came to Santa Fe County District Court in New Mexico with a bizarre seven-page typed statement and requested a domestic-abuse restraining order against late-night TV host David Letterman. She stated, under oath, that Letterman seriously abused her by causing her bankruptcy, mental cruelty, and sleep deprivation since 1994. ..."

"Judge Daniel Sanchez issued a restraining order against Letterman based on those allegations. By doing so, it put Letterman on a national list of domestic abusers, gave him a criminal record, took away several of his constitutionally protected rights, and subjected him to criminal prosecution if he ... possessed a firearm." ...
 

When You Think About the Election, Think About Guns and the Supreme Court

Voters who are concerned about the control of guns should think carefully before voting for Sen. John McCain. The presumptive GOP nominee for president has vowed to name Supreme Court justices in the mold of President Bush's two justices. They would be Chief Justice John G. Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito. That's enough for me.

In the aftermath of the shooting at Northern Illinois University in February of this year, Americans struggled to understand how Steven Kazmierczak could have perpetrated such a terrible tragedy. National media outlets quoted close friends of Kazmierczak who described him as "probably the nicest, most caring person ever." His professors said he was "a nice kid" and "extremely respectful." NIU Police Chief Donald Grady said that law enforcement had "no indications at all this would be the type of person that would engage in such activity ... There were no red flags." They were wrong.

In the wake of three murders and the recent attack on a federal prosecutor in a New York courtroom, a group representing the nation's federal prosecutors is calling for stepped-up security, including home alarms, self-defense training and the right to carry firearms.

Additionally, the National Association of Assistant U.S. Attorneys, which represents the country's 5,400 federal prosecutors, wants secure parking for prosecutors, particularly those who handle dangerous criminal cases.
 

PA: A loose grenade and other stories

It was one of those stories that leaves the reader begging for more information. A man was being treated in the emergency room of Washington Hospital for abdominal pains when what should drop out of his motorcycle helmet but a hand grenade. Once the bomb squad had a chance to look it over, the grenade was determined not to be live, but the poor hospital workers had no way of knowing that at the time.

Police said the man also carried a knife and some black power. They checked his house and found a couple of guns and ammunition, which led to charges being filed because there was a protection-from-abuse order against him that forbade him to have a firearm.
 

Obama's Craftiness

Obama wanted to see a federal law against licensed firearm dealers operating within five miles of a school or state park. ...

As a presidential candidate, however, he now claims to believe in the Second Amendment. Constitutional law lecturer or not, he certainly got the law wrong when it came to the Washington, D.C. handgun ban. And he has supported a wide variety of proposals that would all but eviscerate the practical exercise of that right . He might say he supports the right of Americans to own guns, but he has supported actions that would all but deny them that right.
 

Interest Groups and the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

It is fair to say that one or two cases decided by the U.S. Supreme Court stand out each term. I think it is evident that this term’s most salient case is District of Columbia v. Heller. In that 5-4 decision, the Court struck down the District of Columbia’s ban on the possession of privately owned handguns within District limits. In so doing, the Court clarified the meaning of the Second Amendment for the first time in almost 70 years by endorsing an individual right to keep and bear arms.

...

In addition to providing an excellent example of a test case, the Heller decision is also significant for understanding the primary method of interest group litigation: the amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief.
 

DC: House Democrats Seek Less-Rigid D.C. Gun Laws

Democratic leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives have agreed to allow a vote next month on a bill that would end local handgun control in the District, making it easier for D.C. residents to acquire pistols, including semiautomatics, while eliminating the strict handgun-storage requirements imposed by the city.

Supporters say the bill has a good chance of passing the House, where pro-gun measures are popular. But it is unclear whether it would succeed in the Senate, where complex rules make it harder to push through legislation.

Last month we ran a couple of letters from readers taking us to task for our editorial on the latest Supreme Court ruling on Second Amendment rights.
We should have spiked their comments.
Here’s why: The writers attacked us for a position we don’t hold.

Our editorial views are fair game. We welcome letters that take issue with our editorials, partly because they enliven the opinion pages — we prefer debates to lectures — and partly because criticism tests the strength of our ideas.

Frank Morreale stands behind the glass counter and pats his holstered pistol - a Smith & Wesson .38 special. He likes it because it's light and it hangs on his belt the way a cell phone might - both unobtrusive and useful.

He also likes it because it's a gun. See, Morreale likes all kinds of guns. Big ones, small ones, long ones and short ones. Rifles and pistols. Ones with recoil and ones that won't move your hand but a whisper when fired.

"We live in Nevada," he said. "We like to shoot things."
 

VA: Going After Crimes -- and Guns

The National Rifle Association and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence rarely agree on anything related to gun laws. But both support a law-enforcement program in Richmond that targets gun crimes.

The Supreme Court's ... decision in June that struck down restrictions on individual gun ownership caused city officials nationwide to worry that they could see an increase in gun violence. It also renewed interest in Richmond's efforts to combat it. The city has already reduced firearm-related violence dramatically. It has done so not by making gun purchases more difficult -- Virginia is one of the easiest places to legally buy a handgun -- but by severely punishing all gun crimes, including those as minor as illegal possession.

In most classes, the teacher doesn't point a gun.

But none of the almost 40 people in a bunker-like back room of the Jacksonville Expo Center at the Fairgrounds even raised an eyebrow when Charlie Berrane calmly aimed and sighted a revolver.

The firearms instructor worked his way methodically through safety tips as he explained the correct way to hold the pistol and squeeze the trigger.

"Do you know the story about the man who brought a knife to a gun fight?" Berrane said. "I want you to win your fights."

Almost 100 people turned out July 19 for two concealed-carry classes at the Jacksonville Gun Show. Hundreds more milled through rows of bullet-blasting goods in the main vendor's area.

Lumberton, N.C. — Robeson County's former sheriff has a little more time to enjoy his freedom.

In June, a federal judge sentenced Glenn Maynor to six years in prison for lying to a grand jury that was investigating corruption in his office. Maynor, who was sheriff from 1994 until 2005, also plead guilty in September 2007 to misapplying federal funds.

Along with Maynor, 22 members of the sheriff's department have been sentenced after being caught up in Operation Tarnished Badge, a six-year corruption probe focused on deputies who stopped vehicles and stole money or drugs. Charges ranged from kidnapping and arson to money laundering and sattelite piracy.

 

NV: Cops Stop And Search Vegas Couple For Having Ron Paul - Hope for America, Infowars Bumper Stickers

In the new America an endorsement of Ron Paul now gives the police probable cause to pull you over, ask you for identification and search your vehicle.

They told us get out of the car and put our hands behind our backs, and to stand in front of the police car.

We complied with their request and never once gave them any trouble. Then one of the officers asked me if there was anything illegal in this car, I said no. He said you had better being telling the truth because we are going to search this car. "You know why we had to do this right"?

I said pardon me officer, I don’t know understand, he then repeated it. Then he pointed at our RON PAUL and INFOWARS stickers on our car.
 

WV: Martinsburg may amend weapons measure

The new amended ordinance states that no person can carry or possess a firearm or other deadly weapon, whether it is carried openly or concealed, in any building that is owned, leased or under the care of the city of Martinsburg.
Baldwin said the ordinance applies to buildings such as City Hall, the city's police and fire stations, the city's water and sewer buildings and any buildings belonging to Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks & Recreation that are on city property.

Submitter's note: The proposed ordinance still violates the state preemption statute, W.Va. Code § 8-12-5a (1999). The city must repeal the existing ordinance in its entirety!

What brought this to mind is the recent flap among liberals...over the United States Supreme Court decision that reaffirmed our Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. It wasn't long after the court decision was announced that Barack Obama, the most liberal senator as shown by his actual voting records, began dropping comments about how he accepts our Second Amendment rights.

Finally, I am supporting Mark Gordon because Wyoming needs to send a businessman to Washington who has created jobs and met a payroll.

He won't budge on our Second Amendment rights and he knows the importance of the energy industry to Wyoming. We can be sure he will uphold the letter of the law.

Wyoming needs a congressman who will show up, be tough, and have the discipline of a successful businessman. If he's in your area, take time to meet him. You'll find that Mark Gordon is the best option for Wyoming.

Passion about protecting fellow citizens swayed Mishawaka City Council to vote 5-4 against a weapons ban ordinance.

The ban was actually proposed by Mishawaka Mayor Jeff Rea and City Attorney Cory Hamel.

It would've prohibited all weapons from four buildings frequented by the public: Mishawaka City Hall, the police station, the Battel Center, and Mishawaka Utilities main building.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
