Via Blackfive, who has links to the stories, including this link to the DoD Military Olympians page.  There are “15 military athletes representing the U.S. Army, Army Reserve and Air Force” competing in Beijing this year.  Betcha didn’t know that, did you?

I heard on the radio this week that the Second Amendment Foundation and Smith & Wesson were to commemorate the recent Supreme Court decision in D.C. vs. Heller, upholding the Second Amendment’s individual civil right to bear arms, with an engraved revolver.  Here’s an excerpt from the PDF press release at Smith & Wesson:

SPRINGFIELD, Massachusetts, July, 21, 2008 – The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and Smith & Wesson have partnered to create a commemorative revolver designed to recognize the historical significance of the District of Columbia vs. Heller decision and to acknowledge the six original plaintiffs that united to challenge the gun ban in Washington, D.C.

As part of the project, an engraved Smith & Wesson Model 442 revolver will be presented to each of the six plaintiffs – Shelly Parker, Tom Palmer, Gillian St. Lawrence, Tracey Ambeau, George Lyon and Dick Heller – for their key roles in working to protect the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Smith & Wesson will make the commemorative revolver available for consumer purchase in Fall 2008 and will direct a portion of the proceeds to the Second Amendment Foundation to acknowledge the organization’s pivotal role in the Heller case and its ongoing efforts to preserve the Second Amendment rights of U.S. citizens.

The Smith & Wesson Model 442 will be laser engraved with an insignia to commemorate the ruling by the Supreme Court. On the right side plate of the revolver, the scale of justice is depicted with the wording “D.C. vs. Heller” across the scale. The balance is in favor of the “Heller” name with the court date of “June 26, 2008” positioned across the top. Underneath the scale, the side plate reads “Second Amendment” and “The right to keep and bear arms” in white lettering.

Pretty, isn’t she?

America not yet dead

This morning, in District of Columbia vs. Heller, The Supreme Court held:

The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditional lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

Thank God! If you’re interested, SCOTUSblog has the opinion in pdf format that you can download and read for yourself. Justice Scalia wrote it so it should be some good reading.  Justice Stevens and Justice Breyer wrote dissenting opinions.

Attention Gershwin, FrostyFroggy, AGFrost, and friends!

Liberals have been whining that today’s college students aren’t as “engaged” or “activist” as students in years past. Here’s a chance to prove them wrong.

During the week of October 22-26, 2007, college students throughout America will attend classes wearing empty holsters, in protest of state laws and campus policies that stack the odds in favor of armed killers by disarming law abiding citizens who are licensed to carry concealed handguns virtually everywhere else.

More links and information here. Love the message on the t-shirts!

I have one holster, and could probably borrow one or two more.
