Unauthorized Journalist Questions Spin…

This is how we the “authorized journalists“…spin it!

http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/d-c-gun-laws-strictest-u-100058766–abc-news-politics.html

Summary, article details DC’s strict gun laws mentioning that “Gun-rights advocates frequently suggest that tough gun laws don’t make people safer.”

Then the article says “In 2012, D.C. reported fewer than 100 homicides for the first time since 1963.” implying that DC’s strict gun laws have led to the homicide decline.

When in truth, if you were to point to a single change since 1963, one would have to note that the removal of DC’s gun ban was the most significant change in recent years, and perhaps in the past 40 years since the ban was put into effect.

But hey, speaking the truth is NOT a requirement, nor even an element of “authorized journalists“.

April 19th – 2nd Amendment March in D.C.

Second Amendment March in Washington, D.C.
When: April 19, 2010 (10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)
Where: Washington Monument grounds, Washington, D.C.

“We will assemble on the northeast corner of the Washington Monument grounds at 10:00 a.m.  The entire program will take place there.”

I do not think any of us expect a million gun march or anything of the sort. Though I do hope to see a few thousand. (Or as the mainstream media would say…”dozens”.)

But none-the-less it will be a good opportunity to a) remind Washington that we are here  b) encourage one another and c) perhaps put some pressure on D.C. to adhere to the Heller decision.

Alan Gura files “Palmer vs DC” (Heller II)

Having already fought for the “Right to keep” arms at SCOTUS in the DC vs Heller. Alan Gura is now beginning the fight for the “Right to bear” arms.

The new lawsuit challenges Washington D.C.’s policy of requiring a permit to carry but not providing any means for obtaining said permit.

After the DC vs Heller win, I’ve felt the next step was to push for a SCOTUS case on the right to bear arms ; along with the push for incorporation of the 2nd Amendment. So I am rather excited about this case.  That said, we’re probably have to wait 5-10 years to see it’s resolution.
