    Selectman Barry Greenfield would like to give police the authority to inspect gun safety at people's homes. The problem, he said, is that police do not have the authority, granted by a local ordinance, to enforce the law and inspect the safeguarding of guns at the homes of the 600 registered gun owners in town.

    Irritated by Starbucks’ decision to remain neutral and not ban lawful carry, anti-Second Amendment organizations in North Carolina have developed plans to boycott the chain this Saturday. Dubbing their misguided effort “Skip Starbuck’s Saturday” antis hope to punish the brand nationwide. “As North Carolina’s HB 937 is implemented, it will become increasingly important for us to clearly stand behind restaurants who do not interfere with expanded carry under state law,” - the resource stated, which is, as the site name clearly indicates, the advocate of the Second Amendment. They also claimed that they needed to show that North Carolina...

    My Inquiring Mind ^ | March 25, 2013 | frankenMonkey
    So, are "Background Checks" really "Gun Owner Registrations" When you buy a firearm from a dealer, you submit to a background check, officially known as the The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS. Mandated by the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 and launched by the FBI on November 30, 1998, NICS is used by Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) to immediately determine whether a prospective buyer is eligible to buy firearms or explosives.(1) Like many of you, I was under the impression that NICS checks were not kept as permanent records. Federal law specifically prohibits using NICS...

In California the Board of Supervisors in El Dorado county and in Siskiyou county passed resolutions in defense of the Second Amendment.

    UNITED NATIONS – A treaty being hammered out this month at the United Nations -- with Iran playing a key role -- could expose the records of America's gun owners to foreign governments -- and, critics warn, eventually put the Second Amendment on global trial. International talks in New York are going on throughout July on the final wording of the so-called Arms Trade Treaty, which supporters such as Amnesty International USA say would rein in unregulated weapons that kill an estimated 1,500 people daily around the world. But critics, including the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, warn the treaty...

    The transition from June to July will be delayed by circumstances beyond everyone's control.

    President Barack Obama’s priorities in a second term could include tackling climate change, halting nuclear proliferation, bolstering overseas aid and immigration reform, according to his senior advisers. Although on the campaign trail Obama insists that the central campaign issue is ‘how we build an economy that works for everybody’, White House aides, speaking to the New Yorker in a lengthy article about Obama’s plans for a second term, stressed other themes. Officials insist that they are not taking Obama’s re-election for granted. But Ryan Lizza, author of the article, revealed that Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s former chief of staff, had told...

Almost immediately after the vote, more than 20,000 people signed a "move the convention" petition being pushed by a New York group called Gay Marriage USA. And...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Euro zone finance ministers inched towards approving a second bailout for debt-laden Greece on Monday that would resolve Athens' immediate repayment needs but seems unlikely to revive the nation's shattered economy. Agreement on a 130-billion-euro rescue package on strict conditions would draw a line under months of uncertainty that has shaken the currency bloc, and avert imminent bankrupcty. As the ministers met, officials were struggling to make the numbers add up. EU sources said they had to cut a further 6 billion euros, via various means, to make the financing work, and private investors might have to...

    Pulteney, N.Y. —An elderly homeowner thwarted an apparent break-in early Friday night when he twice shot the perpetrator in his home. Stephen Boyechko was napping with his wife in the bedroom of his ranch-style home at 8016 Brown Road when he was awakened by the sound of breaking glass in a nearby bathroom, Steuben County Chief Deputy Noel Terwilliger said at the scene. Boyechko, in his mid-80s, then grabbed a handgun and confronted the would-be burglar and fired twice, striking him in the abdomen and the groin. The name of the would-be burglar was not released, but he was described...

    Last Tuesday morning, Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner "welcomed" us to the recovery. Seriously. "[A] review of recent data on the American economy shows that we are on a path back to growth," he assured us. (Snip) The Obama administration wants us to believe them. What evidence do they provide to the effect that they "saved" the economy? Vagaries heaped upon vagaries; meaningless phrases piled atop meaningless phrases. No hard numbers of any value. In fact, the Second Great Depression is just beginning. And just as during the First Great Depression, economic liberals are declaring that it doesn't exist.

    Anti-Semites struck for the second time in two weeks Friday and attacked the synagogue in the Swedish city of Malmo, which has suffered a steady exodus of Jews because of anti-Semitism. A written bomb threat had been taped to the synagogue Friday, when an explosion shattered three window panes but caused no injuries. Security at the synagogue was beefed up following the attack. An explosion also struck the house of worship two weeks ago, without causing injuries.

    Thomas’s Principled Jurisprudence in Arms CaseJustice Thomas correctly applied the privileges and immunities clause in the McDonald case.  In 1978, Justice Lewis Powell wrote an opinion in the Bakke case asserting that the need for diversity could justify racial preferences in university admissions. No other justice joined this opinion, but because the other justices were split 4-4, Powell’s opinion decided the case, and in time his argument has been embraced by a majority of the Court. A regrettable result, in my view, but a consequential one.   Last month, Justice Clarence Thomas delivered a similarly decisive opinion in McDonald v....
