Press: Sheriff Eyes Correct Target

Rumor has it that there is some distrust of President Obama. And with all the legislative sabre-rattling recently about prying assault weapons from the cold dead hands of American patriots, anxiety might be a tad higher than normal, even by North Idaho standards. Yet the persistent call issues forth for Kootenai County Sheriff Ben Wolfinger to stand before a cadre of concerned citizens and testify, with one hand on the Holy Bible and the other on his loaded sidearm, that he will actively defend county residents from any incursion of federal forces bent on depriving folks of their Second Amendment rights/Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: I agree with this stand by the Coeur d'Alene Press. How about you?

Judge Against Guns On UI Campus

The University of Idaho did not violate a law student’s Second Amendment rights by not allowing him to keep firearms in his on-campus apartment, Latah County 2nd District Judge John R. Stegner has ruled. Aaron Tribble, a second-year law student, filed a lawsuit against the UI in January, stating his inability to keep firearms at  the South Hill Vista apartments for married students and students with children exceeded the powers of the university and violated his right to bear arms and 14th Amendment right to due process/Brandon Macz, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: What do you think of this ruling in light of the double killing today at Virginia Tech?
