The campaign – www.ourlivesourlaws.org/ – was launched by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a bipartisan coalition of more than 600 Republican, Independent and Democratic mayors.

For months we have been reporting on a critically important bill: H.R. 822—the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011. This vital NRA-backed legislation, introduced earlier this year by Congressmen Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) will enable millions of permit holders to exercise their right to self-defense while traveling outside their home states.

Security at Sunday night's Jets-Cowboys game in New Jersey was tighter than usual -- it was the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and former President Bush was in the house. Yet somehow a "crazed" Cowboys fan was able to smuggle a stun gun into the stadium and use it on Jets fans.

NM: New Mexico Town to Ban All Guns – Against State Constitution

Quiet as a mouse, the edict is ordered, and obeyed by Americans who had decided they are sheep. What would you do if this happened in your town or county? Tell me. I want to know. Apparently nothing happened in Ruidoso.

Unconstitutional? Of course! Does the Constitution matter anymore? NOT TO OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO HAVE CHOSEN TO TAKE YOU OVER; to lift themselves higher than the Constitution which is your guarantee of freedom and liberty and limited powers placed in the hands of the government.
Then why didn’t they route this guy out of office immediately?
Does this make you break out in a cold sweat?

It is clearly an illegal act, as it violates Article II Section 6 of the NM Constitution. A law suit has already been filed by M

In my first column I wrote about the right to self help as an indispensible means for survival. Some may believe the police are responsible for our safety and it is better left to the professionals. I have no argument with that - just this question: What if no one comes?
 

NM: Jury Returns Not Guilty Verdict in Las Vegas, N.M., Road-Rage Case

Richard Baca, who was home on leave from a military tour in Iraq when he shot and killed a former Robertson High School football star during a road-rage incident in Las Vegas, N.M., was found not guilty in the case Friday.

A state District Court jury in Santa Rosa deliberated about 2˝ hours before acquitting Baca, who was 21 when he shot Benito Lemos, 22, in November 2009. Baca was facing a voluntary manslaughter charge.

Baca’s lawyer, Jeff Buckels, said the jury sent a message to the people of Las Vegas that getting out of a car to beat another driver — Baca was punched by Lemos before the shooting — is “dangerous, explosive behavior” that shouldn’t be tolerated.
 

MI: Fired for pulling gun on robbers, pharmacist sues

A Michigan pharmacist who fought off armed attackers by firing a gun of his own to thwart a robbery attempt in May was hailed by many as a hero.

After the hair-raising confrontation that was captured on surveillance video, Jeremy Hovan’s employer rewarded him with a pink slip. Now, Hovan is fighting back, filing a federal lawsuit against Walgreens for wrongful termination.

“No life was lost, no life was harmed, and nothing was stolen,’’ Hovan’s lawyer, Dan Swanson, told NBC News. “So in that context, I think he was a hero. He was exercising his reasonable right of self-defense in the face of a gunman who attempted to pull a trigger three times and shoot him. Presumably, shoot him dead.’

Ed.: Also a poll.

The more we learn about the “Fast and Furious” scandal — in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) illegally facilitated the transfer of thousands of guns to violent drug cartels in Mexico — the more apparent it is that we are witnessing a large-scale cover-up of epic proportions.

In fact, it’s getting difficult to keep up with all of the shuffling of key agency personnel who were involved in the deadly scandal.

He says a case in point involves pharmacist Jeremy Hoven, who used his handgun, for which he had a state issued permit to carry a concealed firearm, to defend himself, others and a Walgreens pharmacy near Grand Rapids, Michigan from a 4:30 a.m. robbery attempt by two armed thugs in May.

When Hoven shot in the direction of the robbers, they fled. No one was hurt, according to reports. Walgreens fired Hoven for violating its "non-escalation" policy. Hoven has filed suit against Walgreens.

It was historic when Michael Monahan walked out of the Palm Beach County Jail last week a free man. One day, he faced up to life in prison for fatally shooting two men who boarded his boat in Riviera Beach. The next day, a judge dismissed the first-degree murder charges against him.

Monahan's case marks the first time a Palm Beach County judge has dismissed a murder charge under a controversial state law that gives extra protection to people who use force in self-defense.

Congress considers law allowing interstate travel with concealed guns

Congress plans to hear testimony Tuesday on a bill that would allow licensed gun owners to carry their firearms across state lines without notifying anyone.

Like other gun disputes, this one comes with heated opinions on both sides.

Gun advocates, such as the National Rifle Association, say such a law would help people to protect themselves when they travel.

Currently, licensed gun owners from one state violate other states’ laws when they carry concealed weapons across state lines.

The National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, H.R. 822, would change that.
 

WI: Wis. concealed-carry fans turn to hunting classes

Some people who want concealed-weapon permits are apparently trying to satisfy the training requirement by taking hunter-education classes, even though the classes weren't intended to cover concealed-carry issues, state officials said.

The concealed-carry law takes effect Nov. 1. Under the measure, residents who can prove they've taken a training course can apply for a permit to carry a concealed handgun.

The state hasn't released specific requirements for firearm training, but the law says a hunter-education class established by the state Department of Natural Resources would qualify.

On September 9, the U.S. House Veterans Affairs Committee passed an amendment by U.S. Representative Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) as a part of a larger piece of veterans’ legislation.

The Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, which was added to H.R.2349 as an amendment, would provide individuals receiving veterans’ benefits with added protection against loss of the right to possess firearms due to mental health decisions.

Ed.: I hope this bill includes automatic rights-restoration the tens of thousands of vets that have lost their rights due to the fiduciary program in the past.

Rehberg’s bill, which was added to H.R.2349 as an amendment, protects veterans gun rights unless they are determined to be a danger to themselves or others by a judicial authority.

In response to a comment Aug. 30 from Karen A. D'Andrea, an advocate for Maine Citizens against Handgun Violence, in which she said, "Let's be clear and factual. No one has the absolute right to own or carry a gun."

Excuse me. Has Ms. D'Andrea ever heard of this thing called the Constitution of the United States of America?
