    "..... the National Rifle Association is facing off not against big national gun-control groups, but against many of the state’s towns and cities, in a brazen push to get them to repeal their gun-related laws."

    The Chicago Tribune has reported that Illinois regulators have proposed new rules that would require users employing the state’s new medical marijuana law to give up their right to own a gun, even if they already have a state-issued firearms identification card or concealed carry license. Those of you who have filled out a 4473 form lately will recall that “unlawful users” of marijuana are disqualified from buying a gun, so it seems likely that state officials are trying to harmonize regulations with federal law. That’s ironic, of course, since federal law makes no provision for medical marijuana. NRA is...

    By now, if you have been paying attention to the pronouncements of Hizzoner, you know that New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg really dislikes, among many other things, guns. He also appears to have engaged in a one-man crusade to convince politicians that, if the President of the United States can be reelected without the support of the National Rifle Association, so too can the most rural Congressman or Southern Senator. The logic of that belief is debatable, but what is not debatable is the logic that the NRA would go out of their way to defend the indefensible –...

    Marc Emery has built a multimillion-dollar business selling marijuana seeds and paraphernalia while thumbing his nose at authorities in his native Canada, even challenging them to arrest him. Yesterday, the man known as Canada's "Prince of Pot" was arrested in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on a U.S. indictment charging him with selling millions of dollars worth of marijuana seeds to customers throughout the United States. Emery, the 47-year-old leader of British Columbia's Marijuana Party, has earned about $3 million a year selling the seeds through his Internet Web site and by mail, federal officials said. Emery and two accomplices, Gregory Williams,...

    Two police officers dropped the handcuffed man on the brick steps before Sheila Harding's front door, she says. From his knees, 23-year-old Richard William Rogers Jr. pleaded to the woman who helped raise him. "They're locking me up," he remembers saying. "But if you give them a gun, they'll let me go." It was a startling proposition, Harding says: Trade a gun to avoid a criminal charge. Interviews and court documents reveal this is a common deal offered by Baltimore police to the suspects they arrest, usually in minor drug cases. It's so typical that one lieutenant recently declared it...
