Second Amendment News Roundup for 2/22/08

Focusing on guns and politics, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

We hear so much about how that numbskull Commie, Fidel Castro, was such a good guy because he 'improved healthcare' with his socialistic program. Well, The Volokh Conspiracy gives us the MUST-read of the day on Castro's real impact on healthcare once one understands the repressive/oppressive regime he controlled:

It seems Osama-'Bama wants California gun laws to be the model for the entire nation. Gun Law News tells us all about it (we are living in dangerous times, folks):

Gun Law News also issues an important alert for Northern Virginia. On Feb. 28th the gun grabbers are having a forum to decry gun violence, denounce the Virginia Tech incident, and call for more gun control:

Tam has some excellent remarks about Commies here:

Read Squeaky's new post all the way to the end. She has some inspiring words that depict what many of us feel. The jackbooted government thugs will get our guns 'only over our dead bodies':

WTF!!!??? That's all I have to say about some of the NRA's latest forays into politics and 'pseudo-endorsements.' The War on Guns has the story here:

Armed and Safe NAILS it with this excellent post on databases that contain the names of 'the mentally ill' in order to prevent them from buying firearms:

Alphecca comments on the New York Times' smear campaign against John McCain. And I agree. They want a Demo elected, and now that Hillary is faltering, that person is Osama 'Bama:

JR blogs about concealed carry and college students:

Roberta X has some food for thought that you may not agree with, but it is well worth the time to read and consider, and I share most of the sentiments, yet still wonder about the general election....I do think McCain is a much better choice than Osama 'Bama or the Hildabeast:

Mike McCarville notes that the Hildabeast's attacks on Osama 'Bama during tonight's Demo debate fell flat:

JR has a great post from an NRA director concerning 'how high does the body count have to go?':

Folks, this is getting way too frightening. If the election were held today, not only would Osama 'Bama beat Hillary for the nomination of the Demos but he would also beat John McCain. Welcome to Commie-land. Mike McCarville has the story:

Robb Allen is interested in moving to Montana after he read the brief filed in D.C. vs. Heller by the state's Secretary of State:

Breda has provided a valuable service to us all...the original soundtrack to 'Pants Shittin' Hysterics':

Nicki has another good one entitled, 'Just One More Law':

Utterly disheartening. So, you think there is no slippery slope in closing the so-called 'mental illness' loophole pertaining to gun rights? Well, now it seems doctors are going to be required to report to the government anyone who has ever even exhibited symptoms of suicide (meaning severe depression), violent behavior, or 'threatening behavior,' whatever the hell that is. This is in addition to those who have been 'institutionalized!' So, now we have gone from those who have been in mental hospitals to those who merely exhibit the symptoms. Read it all here:

Traction Control reports that someone let the cat out of the bag on the hoax of global warming. Actually, they knew global cooling was coming, and they wanted to restrict economic activity (of the free market nature) before the cooling got here (thus proving what I have always maintained...the movement is political and not scientific):

Michelle Malkin comments on the major gaffe made by Mrs. Obama, during which she said she had never in her life been proud to be an American until now:

The Volokh Conspiracy reports that the major work entitled, 'The Human Right of Self-Defense' has now been published and is available:

More On the Ward Sentencing

In a Laurens County courtroom today, former Bell Street Middle School teacher Allenna Williams Ward received 6 years in prison for two counts of second-degree criminal sexual misconduct with a minor, and three counts of performing lewd acts on a minor.

Originally Ward had been charged with crimes that could have carried a life-sentence. The charges were reduced in a plea bargain arrangement where Ward agreed to waive her right to a jury trial and have her case determined by a Judge.

Ward's defense team presented a psychologist who testified that Ward suffers from two serious psychiatric disorders--dependent personality disorder and a sexual disorder.

The defendant once again apologized to the young men, their families, and the community.

Her sentence seemed very light to some of those gathered outside the courthouse. When Circuit Solicitor Jerry Peace was questoned about the sentence and the charge of racism (Ward is white and her victims are black), Peace quickly stated that the Judge in the case is black--Judge Casey Manning.

Peace also stated that in these types of cases that are pleaded out, a sentence of 3 to 8 years is normal and 6 falls within the normal range.

Ms. Ward will have to serve 85% of her sentence before she is eligible for parole, and she will be housed in a maximum security prison due to the nature of her crimes.

Allenna Williams Ward Gets 6 Years of Prison

The former Clinton South Carolina teacher was sentenced to six years of prison for sexual misconduct with teenage students. More details later...

Second Amendment News Roundup for 2/18/08

Focusing on guns and politics, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

Eugene Volokh has the good news and the bad news on the Second Amendment. The good news is that a Chicago scholar on Constitutional law is supporting the 'individual rights' point of view. The bad news is Barack Obama's true feelings about that very issue:

John Lott has posted links to some very interesting discussions on eliminating gun free zones on college campuses:

Lott also posted a helpful map of the various laws on carry among the various states in the U.S.:

Mike McCarville discusses Senator Tom Coburn's answer to a question about being McCain's choice for Vice President:

Born Again Redneck says that Michael Reagan, son of the former President, maintains that his father would support McCain. That is without doubt. Reagan was a major leader and candidate within the Party:

David Hardy points to this post that nails it concerning 'mass killings':

David Codrea has this MUST-read on 'home-grown terrorists,' which increasingly is a tag used to identify gun owners:

You have GOT to see this from Nicki over at The Liberty Zone on waterboarding, torture, and beheadings:

The Latest from the Trail

News reports from Texas indicate that Barack Obama has pulled ahead of Hillary Clinton in the polls leading up to the state's Democratic primary on March 4.

One major Democratic 'super-delegate' stated on condition of anonymity that unless Clinton wins both Texas and Ohio on March 4 by a wide margin, her campaign is finished.

It is beginning to appear very unlikely that Clinton will win both states. Her best shot appears to be Ohio, but she may end up losing there as well.

Wisconsin's Democratic primary is this coming Tuesday, Feb. 19. This has been a very close race, but most pundits believe Obama will win the state.

It is very interesting that rather than stay in Wisconsin through Tuesday to watch as the vote comes in, Clinton is leaving the state on Monday, a day early.

On the Republican side, John McCain has begun to shore up his support among the GOP faithful and at least one former rival, Mitt Romney. Romney endorsed McCain during the week and encouraged his delegates to vote for McCain at the convention.

Former President George H.W. Bush also endorsed McCain.

But conservatives are still wary. McCain's speech before CPAC did not go quite far enough to satisfy most conservatives who form the base of the GOP.

As I have stated before, McCain is going to have to work hard for my vote. My vote does not come cheap, and I vote on the issues. I set the bar very high. I am still waiting to see what McCain does on McCain-Feingold, unfettered individual gun rights for all citizens, and illegal aliens.

McCain needs to repudiate McCain-Feingold has a big mistake. He also needs to make clear that his 'support for the Second Amendment' means individual rights for all citizens and that self-defense is an unalienable right. And he needs to make clear that illegal aliens get NO BREAKS for breaking the law. They must get in line behind everyone else coming here legally.

He has yet to be specific about any of these issues. Therefore, I am withholding my support and my vote until I hear something more than generalities that even Hillary and Osama-'Bama spout.
