BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Second Amendment Foundation today won a significant court victory in California in which the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California ruled that the Golden State's 10-day waiting period violates the Second Amendment "as applied to those individuals who successfully pass" the state's background check prior to the ten …

Across the country, a thriving dissatisfaction with the U.S. government is prompting a growing spate of bills in state legislatures aimed at defying federal control over firearms more than 200 during the last decade, a News21 investigation found.

Particularly in Western and Southern states, where individual liberty intersects with increasing skepticism among gun owners, firearms are a political vehicle in efforts to ensure states rights and void U.S. gun laws within their borders. State legislators are attempting to declare that only they have the right to interpret the Second Amendment, a movement that recalls the anti-federal spirit of the Civil War and civil-rights eras.

I think the president and the majority of Congress, both in the House and Senate, are just completely out of touch with how people feel about Second Amendment rights, said Missouri state Sen. Brian Nieves, who has fought for bills to weaken the federal governments authority over firearms in his state.

In Idaho, the Legislature unanimously passed a law to keep any future federal gun measures from being enforced in the state. In Kansas, a law passed last year says federal regulation doesnt apply to guns manufactured in the state. Wyoming, South Dakota and Arizona have had laws protecting firearms freedom from the U.S. government since 2010.

A News21 analysis shows 14 such bills were passed by legislators in 11 states, mainly in Western states, along with Kansas, Tennessee and Alaska. Of those, 11 were signed into law, though one was later struck down in court. In Montana, Missouri and Oklahoma, three others were vetoed.

More than three-quarters of U.S. states have proposed nullification laws since 2008. More than half of those bills have come in the last two years after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. All but three have been introduced since President Barack Obama took office.

Underneath the policy jargon lies a culture of firearms woven into the heritage and politics of states whose histories were shaped by guns.

(The federal government) is diving off into areas unchecked that theyre not supposed to be involved in, said Montana state Rep. Krayton Kerns, who introduced a bill in 2013 to limit the ability of local police to help enforce federal laws. Not only is it our right in state legislatures to do this, its our obligation to do it. Somebodys got to put a whoa on it.

Opponents say its not federal gun regulation thats unconstitutional, but laws to nullify it.

The Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication wants the Kansas Board of Regents to reverse the social media policy it finalized earlier this month.

The clash between academic freedom and state oversight in Kansas last week continues, as the state Board of Regents revised its policy on what faculty and staff at the state’s colleges and universities can post on social media.

Following harsh criticism of a policy adopted last year that severely restricted social media postings by faculty, the Board added language that is supportive of free speech and academic freedom. But it still allows administrators to suspend and fire faculty members or staffers for social media posts that are “contrary to the best interests of the employer.”

Critics say the policy remains among the most restrictive in the nation and that despite the changes it is a severe restriction on free speech for educators.

“The exercise of free speech is now potentially a firing offense at colleges and universities in Kansas,” the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication writes in a statement.

The Board of Regents first adopted its social media policy last year, in response to a tweet made by an associate journalism professor at the University of Kansas.

The tweet by David Guth criticized the National Rifle Association in relation to the September 2013 shooting at the Washington Navy Yard. Guth tweeted: “blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters.”

The policy adopted in December was denounced from many sides, with many critics saying it gave administrators too much latitude to fire or discipline employees for what they said on social media.

Among the groups speaking out was The American Association of University Professors which argued that some portions of the policy could lead to professors being fired simply for disagreeing with university policies or their colleagues online.

SANTA MONICA (CBSLA.com) Los Angeles County beaches lead the state in poor water quality, according to Heal the Bays 24th annual Beach Report Card.

The report, which was released Thursday, found one in 10 county beaches received a grade of C or worse for pollution for April thought October of 2013.

Three Los Angeles County beaches Mothers Beach in Marina del Rey, Cabrillo Beach in San Pedro and the beach at the Santa Monica Pier earned spots on Heal the Bays Beach Bummer List of the most polluted beaches in the state.

Eight LA County beaches, however, placed on Heal the Bays Honor Roll, signifying beaches that scored A+ grades.

In Orange County, 12 beaches landed on the Honor Roll.

Overall, 90 percent of LA County beaches received either A or B grades during the summer of 2013.

This was the third year in a row of very low rainfall in Southern California and as a result its beaches experienced less urban runoff, which likely led to the improvement of overall grades, the report said.

Twelve offshore islands will cast their votes in the European and local elections just one day ahead of the rest of the State. Photograph: Cyril Byrne

Twelve offshore islands will cast their votes in the European and local elections today, just one day ahead of the rest of the State.

Residents of five islands in Donegal South-West, three in Mayo and four in Galway West will vote today, while those living on seven islands in the Cork South-West constituency will vote tomorrow.

The registered electorate on some offshore islands had been required to vote up to three and four days ahead in previous plebiscites. Bone of contention This had been a bone of contention for Comhdhl Oilain na hireann (the Irish Islands Federation), given improved transport services and communications.

The Department of the Environment, which had previously argued that returning officers need to provide for possible adverse weather conditions said there was no policy change yesterday.

Rather, it said the timing of the European Parliament elections has influenced the dates, as voting must take place within a specified period. Under rule 48 of the Second Schedule of the European Parliament Elections Act 1997, returning officers are only given one days leeway in allowing for island residents.

Former Fianna Fil minister amon Cuv, who held Cabinet responsibility for the islands, has tabled a Bill seeking to amend electoral law in line with this approach.

His Electoral Amendment (number 2) Bill aims to abolish the provision allowing elections to be held on the offshore islands before the date on the mainland.
