protein wisdom "Everybody knows that protein is one of the building blocks of life, and you will find no finer protein in the blogosphere than that produced at protein wisdom" -- Bill Quick, Daily Pundit

At that point, crowd members in love with the Second Amendment went to town to upend the First Amendment. According to news reports, the crowd began drowning out the Spanish pledge, shouting the words in English. The mayor stopped and invited people to use the language of their choosing, and the Spanish pledge began again. The shouting continued. No Spanish could be heard.
I really don't understand Bloomberg. He's making such a big deal out of making sure that it becomes illegal to carry a weapon while drunk in NYC that it appears that it must be legal now, it's become a problem, and something needs to be done to stop it.
Since you can't carry a gun in NYC (except for a privileged few) I don't see how this could possible be a problem. And if it's not a problem why is he up in arms (sorry) about it?
Arthur Frommer doesn't want to come to Arizona. Ok, I'm good with that. Of course when he sees how many other states allow weapons carry he might decide to just not ever leave the house. I'm good with that too.
The Mayor, Attorney General and Chief emphasized that the Supreme Court%u2019s ruling is limited and leaves intact various other laws that apply to private citizens who would purchase handguns or other firearms for home possession.
First, all firearms must be registered with the Metropolitan Police Department%u2019s Firearms Registration Section before they may be lawfully possessed.
Second, automatic and semiautomatic handguns generally remain illegal and may not be registered.
Third, the Supreme Court%u2019s ruling is limited to handguns in the home and does not entitle anyone to carry firearms outside his or her own home. In addition, although the Court struck the safe storage provision on the ground that it was too broadly written, firearms at home should be kept either unloaded and disassembled or else locked except for use in self-defense in emergencies.
Yes, the first point does fall within the fulling as long as the process is not onerous.
Semi-auto handguns illegal? Where'd he get that from?
Limited to handguns in the home?? No. Not even close. The opinion stated.
1. The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home...
SUCH as in the home. NOT solely within the home. Nice try boys. See you in court.
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
-Col. Jeff Cooper
There are now 35 "shall issue" states, nine "may issue" states, and two with unrestricted concealed-carry and there has been not one state that has passed concealed-carry legislation in which gun violence went up. But that's the fear that is pushed each and every time another state considers the legislation - "blood in the streets."
Not one. But Wisconsin will be the first?
Kevin is right on as usual. You'd think even the public would laugh every time someone says that and not just Gun Rights Advocates.
Corrected link to Kevin's post. Thanks Kevin. For some reason TypePad doesn't always pickup the correct link.
Sometime ago I passed by The Gun Guy's blog and saw something that bothered me. A demeaning reference to Iraqi's. So I never went back until today when I linked to him from Instapundit. This time I read a bit more. And found him articulate and intelligent. Perhaps before I caught him at a bad moment. Or perhaps this time he wasn't using derogatory terms. I think I'll keep reading him and if I see something I disapprove of I'll just drop him a note and discuss it. For now he's definitely on my bloglist.
