Tags: Guns, Second Amendment
I hope this goes through. I am so tired of California’s draconian laws on guns. Maybe a case can be brought against this state for impeding on the RTKBA.
I would like to see this state become a “shall issue” state.
This is the question that the Court held off considering in Heller.
Whether the Second Amendment is incorporated into the Due Process Clause or the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment so as to be applicable to the States, thereby invalidating ordinances prohibiting possession of handguns in the home.
Heller finally settled the question of whether the Second Amendment protects and individual right to firearms. But unlike most of the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment has generally (and with some exceptions back in the 1800s) not been applied to the states.

FedEx flies terminally ill girl home
By CELIA DEWOODY
Because of caring people and a caring company, a terminally ill little Green Forest girl was flown home Friday by air ambulance from M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, so she can spend her last days surrounded by the people who love her most.
Jada Harper, who turned seven on Sept. 1, has an inoperable malignant tumor in her brain and is in a coma with a ventilator doing her breathing for her. She has been at the famous cancer center in Houston since July, but her situation is now at the point not much else can be done to help her.

Gregory Kane: Get a handgun, save a life
By Gregory Kane
Here’s the punch line:
A Baltimore Sun editorial lamented the killing, claiming that “even burglars don’t deserve to be killed with a razor-sharp sword.” (That leaves us all to ponder this question: What, exactly, DO burglars deserve to be killed with?) Later, in the same editorial, the writer pondered what would have happened if Rice had been armed.
And there, dear readers, you have a classic example of what I call lib-think. I take it you noticed the underlying assumption: Criminals are supposed to be armed. It’s kind of in their job description. But law-abiding citizens being armed? Oh, perish the thought.

I know it probably isn’t the bank’s fault, just an over zealous liberal moron that runs this particular branch, but dude, really? Bank of America doesn’t fly the American flag on its property? You’re joking right? America is the name of the bank for Pete’s sake!
You can’t honor a fallen Marine? Are you that pathetic? The manager really needs a good beat down.
His particular branch has already lost over $500,000 in accounts. I hope they lose a hell of a lot more.
What a moron.
When a South Carolina woman tried to honor her next door neighbor, a Marine who was recently in Afghanistan, by planting flags along the route the casket would follow, a Bank of America branch manager pulled the flags from the bank’s property, citing “corporate policy.”
With a name like Bank of America, it was particularly surprising when a branch manager in South Carolina ordered the removal of a U.S. flag honoring a fallen soldier from the bank’s property.
Brenda Earls of Gaffney, S.C., tried to honor her next-door neighbor, Marine Lance Cpl. Christopher Fowlkes, who was recently killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, by planting flags along the route the casket would follow. But a Bank of America branch manager pulled the flags from the bank’s property, citing “corporate policy.”
Bank of America, which has received $45 billion in federal loans as part of the government rescue of the financial industry, apologized for the incident, calling it a “terrible mistake.”
Ammo shortages are still an issue.
I got lucky last month and was able to pick up some target ammo for my Beretta 96FS. Apparently the dude that had them set aside had not come in to pick them up in a month, so the salesman let me buy them. That was the ONLY .40 ammo in BassPro in Vegas.
The only .223 I’ve been able to find locally is hollow point 55gr which my Kel-Tec probably won’t like. I have heard others have problems with hollow points in semi-auto rifles, so I don’t even want to try it.
NEW ORLEANS — Bullet-makers are working around the clock, seven days a week, and still can’t keep up with the nation’s demand for ammunition.
Shooting ranges, gun dealers and bullet manufacturers say they have never seen such shortages. Bullets, especially for handguns, have been scarce for months because gun enthusiasts are stocking up on ammo, in part because they fear President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress will pass antigun legislation — even though nothing specific has been proposed and the president last month signed a law allowing people to carry loaded guns in national parks.
Gun sales spiked when it became clear Obama would be elected a year ago and purchases continued to rise in his first few months of office. The FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System reported that 6.1 million background checks for gun sales were issued from January to May, an increase of 25.6 percent from the same period the year before.
