Gun Nut Roundup March '09

"We Shall Overcome"-- Second Amendment March Is On!

Many "civil rights" movements have marched on Washington D.C., from the WWI vets, to Martin Luther King Jr., to the so-called Million Mom March. In 2010, it will be gun owners turn.

In April 2010 (this blogger hopes for April 19th) gun owners from all over the country will descend upon D.C. and gather in the National Mall. (No, that ain't a big-ass shopping mall, it's the grassy area where all the monuments are!) For those who can't go to D.C. (due to scheduling conflicts or active brain cells), smaller satellite marches will be held in state capitals in the rest of fly-over country. Who knows, the national media might even briefly mention the whole thing.

Check out the march's official website at:

Bloomberg Bites A Big One

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case known as City of New York v. Beretta and a similar case out of D.C. The cases sought to hold gun manufacturers responsible for the use of their products by criminals. NY v. Beretta was originally filed by "America's Mayor," the lisping RINO Rudolph Giuliani in 2000. Later the case was struck down by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals under the 2005 "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act."

The new "mayah," anti-gun extremist, Vladimir Putin wannabe, super-RINO Michael Bloomberg pressed ahead with the case anyway, pissing away countless taxpayer dollars on his anti-Second Amendment jihad. By refusing to hear the appeal, the Supreme Court has shut down Bloomberg's plans (this time) and allowed the "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act" to stand.

In Liberal Academia, Free Speech Earns A Visit To Police Station

After delivering a class presentation, a Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) student found himself "standing tall in front of the man" at the local cop shop. Student John Wahlberg, a member of the group Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC) was summoned to the police station after communications professor Paula Anderson reported he and two other students to her superiors after they had completed their assigned task of discussing an issue relevant to the media.

When Wahlberg (who lives off campus) arrived at the station, the police asked him the location of the guns registered in his name. (Reason # Four-bajillion and seven to oppose gun registration.) When he explained that he kept them in a safe at home, the police sent him on his way.

It just shows how much the supposedly "open-minded" and "tolerant" higher education system really appreciates any point-of-view outside of liberal orthodoxy. As Katie Kasprzak, SCCC director of public relations puts it: "The thing that has got me kind of concerned is that the opponents of concealed carry on campus will say that the campus is a place for the exchange of ideas. (But) when students are asked to make a presentation on a controversial issue, they are turned in."
