Gun Control

believe the Founders were very clear on their views of firearms

1) "The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference;

they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
~ George Washington.

2) "The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."
~ Alexander Hamilton .

3) "Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property."
~ Thomas Paine.

US high court to rule on Washington DC gun ban

By Randall Mikkelsen

WASHINGTON, Nov 20 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court said on Tuesday it would decide whether handguns can be banned in Washington, D.C., a case that could produce a decisive ruling on whether individual Americans have a right to keep firearms.

The nation's highest court agreed to hear an appeal by the District of Columbia government arguing that the city's 31-year-old law banning private possession of handguns in the U.S. capital should be upheld as constitutional.

Rifles and rights

POST FALLS -- Zach Doty is raising eyebrows by taking the Second Amendment for a walk.

Doty, who turned 18 last month, has been stopped by police twice in the past month after citizens spotted him with a loaded 9mm Glock pistol in a hip holster in plain view.

No citations were issued because Idaho code allows residents 18 and older to openly carry a firearm in public. To carry a concealed weapon, you must be 21 and have a permit.
