Nothing unclear about Second Amendment: "Mike Freeman could not have been more wrong when he stated the Second Amendment was 'murky' on gun rights. He also stated that, 'Nobody today really knows what Madison and the First Congress intended with this amendment.' When the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights were written, the authors had just finished fighting a horrible war against an oppressive government. They wanted to make sure that would never happen again. They also believed that the individual had the right to protect person and property."

CA: ATF steals firearms from gun dealer: "Special Agent in Charge John A. Torres, Los Angeles Field Division, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), today announced the execution of a seizure warrant for all firearms from the Dodge City gun dealership in Santa Barbara and served the dealer with a Notice of Revocation of his federal firearms license. Torres said Real in Santa Barbara, 'has consistently and repeatedly violated the Gun Control Act and its implementing regulations by failing to account for the acquisition and disposition of hundreds of firearms in violation of federal law and the transferring of firearms in violation of California State law.'"

LA: Business owner justified in shooting: "Shreveport business owner was justified in shooting and killing a burglar he caught in his business last month, Caddo District Attorney Paul Carmouche said Wednesday. The district attorney's office reviewed the shooting and determined no charges should be filed against 74-year-old Dudley Hay. Hay went to his business in the middle of the night after a burglar alarm alerted him to trouble at the tax-service and gun-cleaning and repair shop located next door to his house on Rightway Avenue. Hay got a gun and went to investigate on his own and found a man hiding in a bathtub, Carmouche said. Hay said 19-year-old Eric Bryant of Shreveport stood up and confronted him, so he fired one shot."
