Court's Gun Decision An Important Win for Americans Who Want to Defend Themselves By John Lott Published June 28, 2010 | FOXNews.com With another closely decided 5 to 4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled today that state governments are not able to ban most Americans from owning most types of handguns. The court ruled that firearms are "essential for self-defense." The court found that if the Second Amendment indeed protects an individual right to own a gun, the notion that the government can't ban all handguns is the minimum protection the Constitution can offer. Yet, just as with abortion, this is the first of what is likely to be a long string of court decisions. ...
High Court’s Big Ruling For Gun Rights
Post Date: 2010-06-28 12:53:47 by Badeye
High Courts Big Ruling For Gun Rights June 28, 2010 - 10:07 AM | by: Lee Ross In its second major ruling on gun rights in three years, the Supreme Court Monday extended the federally protected right to keep and bear arms to all 50 states. The decision will be hailed by gun rights advocates and comes over the opposition of gun control groups, the city of Chicago and four justices. Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the five justice majority saying "the right to keep and bear arms must be regarded as a substantive guarantee, not a prohibition that could be ignored so long as the States legislated in an evenhanded manner." The ruling builds upon the Court's 2008 decision in ...
In Debate Over Gun-Carry Laws, Critics Are Quick to Shoot Down the Facts

In Debate Over Gun-Carry Laws, Critics Are Quick to Shoot Down the Facts By John Lott Published June 24, 2010 | FOXNews.com People walking the streets armed with guns must be dangerous, right? A newly revised study by the Brady Campaign and the Violence Policy Center found that even those individuals who have legally obtained permits to carry concealed handguns are extremely dangerous. With millions of Americans already having been issued such permits from the various states, this is an important issue. The gun control organizations have frequently made these claims in the press, and Dennis Henigan, the vice president of the Brady Campaign, will likely make these claims again when he ...
Obama's gun run
Post Date: 2010-06-21 13:14:49 by Badeye
Obama's gun run If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Chicago's handgun ban, naturally you might expect a rise in the sale of firearms and ammunition. Except that's already happened nationwide. The election of Barack Obama ushered in boom times for gun manufacturers, which only now show signs of abating. Industry revenues have shot up an average of 6.9 percent annually since 2005, including a robust 8.9 percent jump in 2009 Obama's first year in office. Smith & Wesson must love it when Democrats win the White House. President Bill Clinton became known as the industry's "salesman-in-chief" during a tenure marked by the federal ...

Think Tough Gun Laws Keep Europeans Safe? Think Again... By John Lott Published June 10, 2010 | FOXNews.com Print Email Share Comments (2) Text Size It wasn't supposed to happen in England, with all its very strict gun control laws. And yet last week Derrick Bird shot and killed 12 people and wounded 11 others. A headline in The Times of London read: "Toughest laws in the world could not stop Cumbria tragedy." Multiple victim public shootings were assumed to be an American thing for it is here the guns are, right? No, not at all. Contrary to public perception, Western Europe, where most countries have much tougher gun laws, has experienced many of the worst multiple victim ...

Gregory Kane: Mayor Daley is wounding gun control advocacy By: Gregory Kane Examiner Staff Writer June 7, 2010 America's gun control proponents might want to consider shooting (pun intended) this memo to Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. "Dear Mayor Daley: Please shut up. You ain't helping us." Is there anyone doing more damage against advocates of gun control than Daley? The man is a walking billboard for right-to-carry laws. Anyone needing proof of that might want to read the statements he made in the wake of an 80-year-old Chicago man fatally shooting a career criminal who invaded his home. The background story goes like this. The elderly man is a Korean War veteran ...

The True Story of Israel's attack on an American Intelligence Ship Imagine all the earthquakes in the world, and all the thunder and lightnings together in a space of two miles, all going off at once. --Description by unknown U.S. Army officer of night engagement when Farragut ran Fort Jackson and St. Philip, April 24, 1862 Searing heat and terrible noise came suddenly from everywhere. Instinctively I turned sideways, presenting the smallest target to the heat. Heat came first, and it was heat--not cannon fire--that caused me to turn away. It was too soon to be aware of rockets or cannon fire. "We're shooting!" I ...

Daley won't say if 80-year-old will be charged under gun ban May 27, 2010 12:40 PM | No Comments Mayor Richard Daley refused to say today whether an 80-year-old Army veteran who shot and killed an intruder will be charged under the city's handgun ban. Asked about the possibility of charges, the mayor ended a news conference he had called about summer curfew in the city. "I don't know. Thank you very much," Daley said and stepped away from the microphone. Before walking away, Daley acknowledged people's frustration over the issue of gun control but insisted "I don't think the answer is guns." The homeowner was asleep with his 83-year-old wife and ...

'Don't kill' pol in a cop-out Admits: I'm no expert By BRENDAN SCOTT Post Correspondent Last Updated: 11:32 AM, May 26, 2010 ALBANY -- An assemblywoman under fire for sponsoring a bill that asks cops to shoot gun-wielding suspects in the arms and legs brushed off the outrage yesterday -- although she admitted she is no expert on police work. Asked about her critics' contention that the proposed legislation will put police lives at risk, Annette Robinson (D-Brooklyn) told The Post: "I understand that." She insisted that cops use too much force, but acknowledged she is unqualified to assess the issue. "Not being a police officer, I would not be able to ...

CIA Releases New Details on Cold War Mission
Post Date: 2010-02-16 07:44:59 by war
WASHINGTON (Feb. 13) -- In 1974, far out in the Pacific, a U.S. ship pretending to be a deep-sea mining vessel fished a sunken Soviet nuclear-armed submarine out of the ocean depths, took what it could of the wreck and made off to Hawaii with its purloined prize. Now, Washington is owning up to Project Azorian, a brazen mission from the days of high-stakes - and high-seas - Cold War rivalry. After more than 30 years of refusing to confirm the barest facts of what the world already knew, the CIA has released an internal account of Project Azorian, though with juicy details taken out. The account surfaced Friday at the hands of private researchers from the National Security Archive who used ...

Post Date: 2010-02-03 04:56:07 by Murron
SWAT Team Responds to Cap Gun at Wash. School VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) -- The initial 911 report from the Vancouver, Wash., elementary school was alarming: shots fired at a school playground. That had police and SWAT officers scrambling Tuesday morning - only to find the weapon was a bright orange cap gun. Police and school officials say a second-grade boy at Eleanor Roosevelt Elementary School brought the gun and apparently pointed it at two 6-year-olds and fired it, discharging smoke. The two students told a playground supervisor that another student had fired a gun at them - and the response took off from there. Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp says, "When you have that type of a call, ...
Obama Administration Shuts Down Oldest Gun Show in Central Texas
Post Date: 2010-01-18 18:56:30 by A K A Stone
In a disturbing update to a story covered in-depth today on the Alex Jones Show, Texas grocery retailer HEB has banned Texas Gun Shows from holding a monthly gun show. HEB is the lease holder on the property where the gun show was held. HEB used the staged arrest of a man by the Austin Police subsequently released without charge at the event over the weekend as a pretext to shut down the oldest gun show in central Texas. Alex Jones noted on his show today that he has attended guns shows at the venue since he was in high school. Listeners to the Alex Jones Show should be aware that this backhanded tactic or similar tactics used by the ATF will be used at the behest of the ...
More Guns, Less Crime in '09
Post Date: 2009-12-30 03:45:58 by WhiteSands
Americans went on binges buying guns and ammunition in early 2009, worried that a radical leftist president and Democrat-dominated Congress would violate their Second-Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. The effects? Less murder, robbery, rape, and property crime, according to an FBI report released Monday. This gives the young president and Democrat Congress at least one proud but unintended accomplishment for which they'll never claim credit. Indeed, gun buyers were out in droves in late 2008 and early 2009. While it's easy to infer that increased gun ownership figures align precisely with the drop in crime in the same calendar period, you won't see that headline in the ...

Milgram attributed New Jersey's overall drop in violent crime to more effective law enforcement efforts, including antigang initiatives and seizures of illegal guns. "We have now successfully decreased the number of murders in New ...

Paintball and Airsoft as Legal Ways of Militia Training By Coral Snake An important part of becoming a free states populace becoming the well regulated militia mentioned in the second amendment is pretty much the same as in any military body, drilling and combat training. However even many states that allow forearms ownership unconstitutionally prohibit such training by civilian bodies. However there IS a way of having militia style training legally in most states through legal combat gaming also known by the guns and projectiles such games use, Paintball and Airsoft. Most people that are interested in guns, militaria, real life combat games and video games and the like has probably heard ...

With the holiday season upon us, and the end of the year fast approaching, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3326the Department of Defense Appropriations Act of 2010. With the passage of this bill, NRA-ILA wraps up its appropriations work for the year. Our efforts on the huge spending bill were rewarded with the restoration of a longstanding rider to protect M-1 carbines, M-1 Garands, M-14s, .22 caliber rifles, and others from being destroyed. This language also includes a prohibition on the destruction of small arms ammunition and components, and a response to the short-lived concern over destruction of spent brass casings earlier this year.

Times Sq. gunman held weapon like rapper
Post Date: 2009-12-13 19:10:02 by Happy Quanzaa
A Times Square bloodbath was narrowly avoided because the machine-pistol-toting thug who fired at a cop flipped the gun on its side like a character out of a rap video, causing the weapon to jam after two shots, law-enforcement sources said yesterday. When scam artist Raymond "Ready" Martinez held the MAC-10-style gun parallel to the ground, it caused the ejecting shells to "stovepipe," or get caught vertically in the chamber, the sources said. The gun is designed to be fired only in a vertical position. If he had fired the weapon -- which had another 27 rounds in the clip -- properly, Martinez, 25, could have killed the hero cop pursuing him and countless others ...

Anti-gun ObamaCare at a Crossroads
Post Date: 2009-12-08 06:57:57 by Sarajevo
Passage or defeat will depend on whether Senate Republicans pursue a smart or stupid strategy Friday, December 4, 2009 The spectacle on the Senate floor -- in connection with the anti-gun ObamaCare bill -- is disgusting. The Senate is debating socialized health care right now, and some Republicans may be ready to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. This alert is long, but it is necessarily so. Here's the situation as it stands right now on the Senate floor: * Harry Reid is pushing a $3 trillion bill with over $500 billion in new deficits. But he is trying to conceal the deficits with accounting fraud on a scale which would put anyone else in prison for the rest of his life. * ...
MSNBC: ObamaCare Protesters ‘Racist,’ Including Black Gun-Owner

On Tuesday, MSNBCs Contessa Brewer fretted over health care reform protesters legally carrying guns: "A man at a pro-health care reform rally...wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip....there are questions about whether this has racial overtones....white people showing up with guns." Brewer failed to mention the man she described was black. Following Brewers report, which occurred on the Morning Meeting program, host Dylan Ratigan and MSNBC pop culture analyst Toure discussed the supposed racism involved in the protests. Toure argued: "...there is tremendous anger in this country about government, the way government seems to be ...
Obama's Draconian Gun Control
Post Date: 2008-09-06 21:17:05 by Coral Snake
I'll give the mainstream media this: They're consistent. They're consistently ignoring Barack Obama's statements that he "supports" the Second Amendment, and they're also consistently ignoring Senator Obama's repeated calls for the kind of gun control that would spell the end of the Second Amendment as we know it. Back in 1999, Obama called for a laundry list of gun control, including a 500 percent increase in taxes on firearms and ammunition. He called for bans of affordable handguns. He called for mandated "smart gun" technology. He demanded that FFLs not be allowed to maintain their business within five miles of a school or a park. In short, ...
