Supporters say House Bill 228, which also includes a number of other firearm-related provisions, would put Ohio law in line with about half of other states by shifting the burden of proof in self-defense cases from the defendant to the prosecution.

MI: Group With Baby Planned to Bring Guns to Dearborn Bar

An altercation last month at a Dearborn bar might have ended tragically if not for a tip from a citizen, said Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad.

On Oct. 27, four suspects had just been involved in a bar fight, went home and may have planned to return, guns in hand, when they were pulled over by police at Jerome and Walwit streets, Haddad said.

“What’s really troubling about this is that when these four people were arrested, they were in two cars and had a young infant in the back seat,” Haddad said during a Monday press conference. “Next to the young infant was a guy with an AK-15.”

But “some real observant citizens found them on the street and could tell they were up to no good,” Haddad said.

The Nov. 9 editorial “Enough is enough, again,” about the recent Thousand Oaks, Calif., shooting, mentioned a desire to see stronger gun laws. However, California has very restrictive gun laws. The editorial also proposed an assault weapons ban; but the shooter did not have an assault weapon. The editorial, unintentionally or otherwise, ignored the central role of mental illness.

At the conclusion of the Franco-Prussian War in 1871, French military domination of Europe also came to an end. From there, a now-unified Germany took center stage and brought an entirely new balance of power to Europe during the closing decades of the 19th century. But, France was by no means a nation beyond its prime during those years.

A leading national Second Amendment advocate may have cracked a code by suggesting that the gun prohibition lobby isn’t trying to erase the right to keep and bear arms, but rather they are attempting to nullify the amendment piecemeal via increasingly strict regulations, as noted in an Op-Ed he bylined recently in the Asheboro, N.C. Courier-Tribune.

Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation continued that contention in a letter to the editor of the Seattle Times Tuesday morning.
“Gun prohibitionists,” he wrote, “simply want to nullify the Second Amendment by regulation.”
