<ul>
<li>Assaulted a man on a street corner</li>
<li>Kidnapped at gunpoint</li>
<li>Taken to the person's home and performed a home invasion</li>
<li>Kidnapped man's wife</li>
<li>Robbed man and his wife at gunpoint</li>
<li>Forced to go to check cashing center at gunpoint</li>
<li>Assaulted police officer using gun as club, battery against officer during arrest</li>

Second amendment not revenge, but survival.

From the LA Gun Rights Examiner:

You may have heard of the gun owners who were ambushed by their hosting hotel during their NRA and Gala For Gun Rights convention in North Carolina.

Millions of gun owners out of 90 million gun owners already refuse to give their business to various companies in protest of their being against our second amendment rights. Not revenge, but survival. After all, the armed citizen is the law of the land: gun control opposes this; who is the aggressor here? Spiteful attitudes and erroneous notions can threaten freedom itself. The countermeasure is education.

Arizona to allow concealed weapons without permit

This is good news, for sure, but I wonder about the choice of words used in the story.

<blockquote>PHOENIX — Favoring the constitutional right to bear arms over others' concerns about gun safety, Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a bill making Arizona the third state allowing people to carry a concealed weapon without requiring a permit.

The measure takes effect 90 days after the current legislative session ends, which likely puts the effective date in July or August.

What if it were guns?

District's Post-Heller Firearm Restrictions Are Upheld

Thanks to The Blog of Legal Times, http://legaltimes.typepad.com

Judge Ricardo Urbina of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has just ruled that the D.C. firearm ordinances enacted after the Supreme Court's D.C. v. Heller decision in 2008 "permissibly regulate the exercise of the core Second Amendment right to use firearms for the purpose of self-defense in the home." Urbina dismissed a case brought by Dick Heller, the same plaintiff who challenged the previous D.C. ordinance at the Supreme Court.

What would YOU do?

There is a story <a href="http://www.journal-news.net/page/content.detail/id/520379.html?nav=5006"... about a guy who got awaken from bed and arrested. The story has many of the details, and of course, we don't how accurate they may or may not be, much less do we know how many details are missing. But put yourself in the shoes of a Mr. Dale Meadows, of 12311 Valley Road, Berkeley Springs [WV] and ask yourself what you would have done in this situation.

Second amendment prevails - no matter where you are

From Sen. Mike Enzi's (R-WY) dot-gov website at http://enzi.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=NewsRoom.NewsReleases... we are reprinting the story in total!

February 23, 2010

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senators Mike Enzi, John Barrasso and Representative Cynthia Lummis, all R-Wyo., praised the implementation of a law solidifying the second amendment by allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons on to National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service public lands.

Good news about gun control lies

It's a sure sign that the gun grabbers are getting tired, when they resort to the same lies about guns, gun control, background checks, lawful carry, bla bla bla. Specifically, they say that more guns causes more gun violence. This is provably false. They say that background checks make people safer. This is false, as well.

Georgia Gun Laws Could Get Overhauled

Thanks to <a href="http://blogs.findlaw.com/blotter/2010/02/ga-state-gun-laws-could-get-ove... for the following:

Georgia lawmakers could overhaul current Georgia gun laws and allow weapons just about anywhere -- even handguns on college campuses.

The proposed broad legislation would lift a ban on firearms in most public buildings, churches and even the state Capitol. It would allow gun owners with permits to carry in college campuses. The places where Georgia gun laws would ban firearms would mainly be limited to jails, courthouses and prisons.

Good reports from Starbucks, Circuit City; via ammoland.com

OpenCarry.org Applauds Starbucks' Policy to Serve all Lawful Gun Owners
Free Market Ensures Gun Owners Will Get Served.

Bristol, VA --(AmmoLand.com)- OpenCarry.org applauds Starbuck's policy to serve all lawful gun carriers world wide. It is refreshing to see yet one more company not requiring law abiding gun owners to go to the back of the bus.

"Importantly," says John Pierce, co-founder of OpenCarry.org, "Starbucks joins most American corporations in deciding not to discriminate against lawful gun carriers."
