Civil rights restored to North Carolina man

ANGIER, N.C. – One small town lawyer from Angier, N.C., has won a big victory for second amendment advocates.

For nearly five years, Dan Hardway has been working a case that would restore gun rights to a convicted felon.

"They were trying to punish Barney [Britt] again for a crime that he committed in 1979 that he has fully paid for," says Hardway.

Chicago has some of the most oppressive gun control in the USA

Not surprisingly, here are the results, as told by a site that is anti-gun rights:

<blockquote><cite>
Last summer, 125 Chicago families lost loved ones in combat. But unlike the coffins draped in American flags returning home from Iraq, these contained victims of local gun violence. The city of Chicago had suffered nearly twice as many fatalities as all American soldiers in Iraq over the same period. Their battlefields were the streets of Chicago — the very streets now courting the 2016 Olympics.

Goofy Gun Control

This might be my favorite quote of the week:

<blockquote><cite>"Trying to reduce gun crime by <a class="zem_slink" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing" title="Rationing" rel="wikipedia">rationing</a> guns to law-abiding citizens is as absurd as trying to reduce drunk driving by rationing cars to non-drinkers."</cite></blockquote>

That is the headline at <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/discussion/2009/08/05/DI200...

The ruling was in response to an appeal brought by Exeter resident Dan Garand who argued that his appeal should be heard in Rockingham County Superior Court, not Exeter District Court.

Appeals Court Sets Rehearing on Ruling That Eased Gun Restrictions

In a setback for supporters of gun rights, a federal appeals court in San Francisco has set aside a major ruling by three of its own justices that made it easier to challenge local gun restrictions.

Without explanation, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, on Wednesday ordered a hearing before 11 judges on an earlier decision by a three-judge panel that applied the Second Amendment right to own guns to state and local laws.
