So once the Second Amendment is repealed (x-post)

from GD http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027115121

and gun ownership prohibited, who will be entrusted to enforce this?

I am curious how much power we will allow police to have for enforcement. Will police arrest anyone in possession of a gun as they encounter them, will we allow the police to go house to house and confiscate guns or will it be like illegal immigration and left up to Federal enforcement?

Will any additional weaponry be authorized for use in enforcing the new paradigm?

Gun control proponent: Women too weak to carry guns for self-defense

Leah Gunn Barrett, executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, stated on al-Jazeera's The Third Rail that
college campuses are some of the safest places in the nation

and when challenged by Florida state Representative Rehwinkel Vasilinda (D){also a rape survivor who defended herself with a gun} that 20% of college women will experience rape or sexual assault, Ms. Barrett asserted
Women are not physically powerful like men are. A gun could easily be turned on the woman, and it is frequently.

Moments later when the host of the show asked if there is a right to self defense with a weapon she admitted that there is such a right in the home {only} because the Supreme Court has ruled so.


Is there a way to balance the right to self defense (is there a right to self defense?) with public safety?

Or is there a certain nobility in victim-hood that the rape victim, the home invasion victim, the elderly prey of criminals should take comfort in, if they survive being attacked, knowing that their trauma is for a "greater good?"

I guess women are simply SOL- even if you have a right to self defense, you are so weak it will be turned against you.

Teenager protects twin brothers with father's rifle after break-in attempt

Teenager protects twin brothers with father's rifle after break-in attempt

NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) – It's a parent's nightmare – the children are home alone when robbers break in.

Two young men are caught on surveillance video breaking in to Kieawa Mason's home.

His 14-year-old son, Andrew, and his younger twins were the only ones home. Andrew and his siblings were trained not to answer when anyone knocked.

"Eventually I hear a thud on the door so I assume, he's breaking in," Andrew said.

Small game hunting

My eldest wants to go squirrel/ small game hunting. Rather than using a .22 I am considering an air rifle in the 1000+ fps range.

Does anyone have experience with these and how easy are they for a 12 yro to use?

Source: NBC

A gunman opened fire on a train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris on Friday afternoon, wounding at least three people before he was apprehended, police officials told NBC News.

It happened near Arras, France, 115 miles north of Paris.

"The situation is under control. The travelers are safe," the company that operates the train, Thalys, tweeted in French. "The train stopped and the emergency services are on site."

Two of the victims were in serious condition, French President François Hollande said in a statement.

Man who killed teen robber in Summit Ave. park won't be charged

Man who killed teen robber in Summit Ave. park won't be charged

The man who shot and killed a 16-year-old boy who tried to rob him at gunpoint in St. Paul will not be charged, prosecutors said.

The Ramsey County attorney's office said Wednesday that it was declining to charge the man, whose name has not been made public.

Lavauntai Broadbent of West St. Paul was fatally shot July 31, ending an apparent robbery spree for the teen and several friends.

In declining to charge the man for fatally shooting Broadbent, the county attorney's office said it "has concluded that no criminal charges are appropriate regarding Broadbent's death as the use of deadly force was legally justified."

Jeb Bush leaves door open for use of torture by government

Jeb Bush leaves door open for use of torture by government

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush on Thursday declined to rule out resuming the use of torture under some circumstances by the U.S. government.

"I don't want to make a definitive, blanket kind of statement," Bush told an audience of Iowa Republicans, when asked whether he would keep in place or repeal President Barack Obama's executive order banning so-called enhanced interrogation techniques by the CIA.

"When you are president your words matter," he said.

The former Florida governor said that in general, he believes torture is inappropriate, and that he was glad his brother, former President George W. Bush, largely ended the CIA's use of the techniques before he left office. The CIA used waterboarding, slapping, nudity, sleep deprivation, humiliation and other methods to coerce al-Qaida detainees — methods the military would be prohibited from using on prisoners of war.
