Kentucky: Louisville Legislators Launch a Vicious Attack on Our Second Amendment Rights

Today, state Representatives Mary Lou Marzian (D-34) and Jim Wayne (D-35)introduced legislation designed to strip away your individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  While this measure is being touted as a public safety and crime control initiative, the proposals only criminalize and disarm law-abiding gun owners and threaten their inherent right to self-defense.

Father protects infant son from violent attack, The Columbus Dispatch, Columbus, Ohio 01/08/12

After pulling into the driveway of his brother’s home in Columbus, Ohio, Kelby Smith removed his 2-month-old son, still in his car seat, from the vehicle. While still in the driveway, an armed robber approached Smith and demanded money, prompting Smith to kneel down to shield his son. Smith, a Right-to-Carry permit holder, handed the man a small amount of money then drew a pistol, at which point the criminal retreated. But during his escape, the robber turned and pointed his gun at Smith, prompting Smith to shoot the criminal.
Police captured the wounded robber a short time later after he sought medical treatment at a local hospital. Smith and his son were not harmed during the incident and police have not charged the armed citizen.

Second Amendment attack backfires

Gun grabbers have been exploiting the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., to pursue their long standing agenda of disarming America. Law abiding and responsible gun owners are fighting back against the onslaught. NBC anchor David Gregory acted on Sunday as if D.C. firearms laws didn’t apply to him. He brandished a 30 round rifle magazine on “Meet the Press” during an interview with National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. “Isn’t it just possible that we could reduce the carnage in a situation like Newtown?” Mr. Gregory asked while waving the prohibited object. A ruthlessly enforced city ordinance makes it unlawful to possess magazines with greater than a 10 round capacity. NBC staff had contacted the Metropolitan Police Department in advance seeking permission to violate the city’s rules for the stunt. According to a spokesman for Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier, the request was denied. Mr. Gregory went ahead anyway.
