Thread: Do you own a firearm? You sure?

  1. #21
    The Amendment guarantees an individual right to possess a firearm in the home for self-defense. This decision created a radical shift in the meaning of the Second Amendment, but it doesn’t prevent smart gun regulations. In fact, courts nationwide have found a wide variety of firearms laws constitutional because they can help prevent gun deaths, injuries, and crimes in communities across the country.

    And you've got to take responsibility for your own safety," Kent said.

    As far as right to bear arms amendment in America the politicians here want to take that away from the people but our judges carry firearms for protection but you have on the otherhand.

    Amanda Bronstad The National Law Journal December 7, 2006 Despite increased security at courthouses following shootings in Chicago and Atlanta about one year ago, many judges are bringing their own guns into their courtrooms for protection.

    Earlier this month, a Florida judge was ordered to accept mentoring after warning a defense attorney that he was "locked and loaded."

    In May, a judicial ethics committee of the New York State Unified Court System found that it was ethical for a judge to carry a pistol into his courtroom.

    In Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas, incidences of violence in the past year have prompted new laws or solidified rules allowing judges to bring guns into courtrooms.

    "Judges in our courthouse have been carrying guns almost all the time," said Cynthia Stevens Kent, a Texas judge in the 114th District Court, where a man in a family law case killed his ex-wife and son last year on the steps of a Tyler courthouse.

    "We feel strongly about providing adequate security, but it comes down to personal responsibility.

    And you've got to take responsibility for your own safety," Kent said. http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/i.../t-239473.html

    From what I recall a 'firearm' is a legal word of art for a receiver or frame registered with the BATF for sale through a FFL licensed dealer. Everything else that attaches to the receiver isn't the 'firearm', its the receiver. Its the receiver that is registered 'in commerce' and called a 'firearm'. They don't use the word 'gun' or 'arm by itself. The receiver 'carries' (a commercial term) the parts. So technically the idea of 'firearm' parts might be a misnomer in legalese with the notion of the frame or receiver being the firearm.
