Do Gun Rights Trump The First Amendment? One Federal Court Thinks So

Do Gun Rights Trump The First Amendment? One Federal Court Thinks So by Ian Millhiser A divided federal appeals court held on Tuesday that Florida lawmakers could censor what doctors say to their patients, handing a victory to gun groups in the process. This is the second time the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit upheld the law, often referred to as the “physician gag rule,” which punishes many doctors who speak to their patients about guns. Tuesday’s opinion replaces an opinion handed down last year which reached the same result. The Florida law restricts record-keeping by doctors… View Article

The National Rifle Association attacks Australian gun laws

The National Rifle Association attacks Australian gun laws AMERICA’S powerful gun lobby has Australia in its firing line. The National Rifle Association has criticised the land down under for its “Orwellian” gun laws instituted following the Port Arthur massacre in 1996. In a provocatively-titled article, Australia: There Will Be Blood, the NRA disputes whether the gun buyback scheme and ban on semiautomatic weapons actually helped Australia reduce rates of violent crime. There was a “growing consensus” among impartial researchers that disarming Australian citizens did not make them safer, the association’s America’s 1st Freedom magazine said. US President Barack Obama recently… View Article

Machine gun restoration project under way

Machine gun restoration project under way By Richard Turtle Harold – A pair of 100-year-old German guns, taken as souvenirs at the end of World War I, will be temporarily removed from the cenotaph on Highway 14 to be refurbished thanks to the efforts of the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Stirling-Rawdon Historical Society.

Concealed carry rewrite bill in Idaho concerns Idaho Sheriffs’ Association

Concealed carry rewrite bill in Idaho concerns Idaho Sheriffs’ Association By Vaughn Killeen House Bill 301, which is before the Idaho Senate, was promoted as a rewrite of Idaho’s concealed weapon’s license law to make it more readable. However, some believe it is still cumbersome, and buried in its language is a major shift in policy regarding who is eligible for a concealed weapon license. Currently, 18-3302(1)(i) provides a disqualifier for anyone who “has had entry of a withheld judgment for a criminal offense which would disqualify him from obtaining a concealed weapon license.” This new bill, in contrast, at… View Article

Why Russia Shut Down NED Fronts

Why Russia Shut Down NED Fronts Secret hand behind NED’s creation was the CIA by Robert Parry The Washington Post’s descent into the depths of neoconservative propaganda – willfully misleading its readers on matters of grave importance – apparently knows no bounds as was demonstrated with two deceptive articles regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin and why his government is cracking down on “foreign agents.” If you read the Post’s editorial on Wednesday and a companion op-ed by National Endowment for Democracy President Carl Gershman, you would have been led to believe that Putin is delusional, paranoid and “power mad” in… View Article

The Bush Family: A Continuing Criminal Enterprise?

The Bush Family: A Continuing Criminal Enterprise? Gary W. Potter, PhD. Professor, Criminal Justice Eastern Kentucky University The S&Ls, the Mob and the Bushs During the 1980’s hundred of Savings and Loan Banks failed. Those bank failures cost U.S. taxpayers over $500 billion to cover federally insured losses, and much more to investigate the bank failures (Pizzo, Fricker, and Muolo, 1989; Brewton, 1992; Johnston, 1990). More than 75% of the Savings and Loan insolvencies where directly linked to serious and often criminal misconduct by senior financial insiders (Pizzo, Fricker and Muolo, 1989: 305). In fact, less than 10 percent of… View Article
