U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney trumpeted her support for the Second Amendment’s right for Americans to bear arms this week as she co-sponsored legislation that would expand the rights of people with concealed weapons permits.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would allow people with state-issued concealed carry licenses or permits to carry a concealed weapon in any other state, provided they follow the laws of that state.

Stocks of firearm manufacturers shot higher on Tuesday and Wednesday, scooped up by speculators betting on violence as a result of the presidential election and unfounded fraud claims. Unfortunately, they got their wish, with the U.S. Capital siege leaving one woman dead and many folks injured. Buyers are bidding those issues higher again in Thursday's pre-market, even though Congress has now affirmed Joe Biden's victory.

Gov. Mike DeWine waited until the last day possible to sign Senate Bill 175. On Monday, he signed the bill that will allow Ohioans to "stand their ground" if faced with a violent attack.

"Before this bill was passed, you should’ve tried to retreat if you were out on the street or in a vehicle," Sheriff Matt Treglia said. "Now basically it’s made the victims be able to stand their ground if need be, out on the street if need be away from their house, that they don’t have to retreat at all."

Two more officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor have been fired — a detective believed to have fired the fatal shot and another who sought the search warrant that led to the deadly raid, authorities announced Wednesday.

The announcement came moments after city officials said the former Atlanta police chief would soon take over the Louisville Police Department after months of unrest over Taylor's death. Erika Shields served in Atlanta for 25 years, including more than three years as chief. Her tenure ended when she resigned in June after Atlanta officers fatally shot a Black man named Rayshard Brooks in a restaurant parking lot.

You are a 67-year-old woman. You live outside of town. You return home with two friends shortly before 8:30 in the morning. As you head down your driveway, you notice a strange car parked near your house. All three of you get out of your car and go look for your unscheduled visitors. You find two men stripping the property from one of your buildings.

You’re armed. You draw your firearm and tell the two criminals to stop. Your friends call the police. You and your friends hold the burglars until the police arrive.

Flown by many protesters at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, the Gadsden flag has a design that is simple and graphic: a coiled rattlesnake on a yellow field with the text “Don’t Tread On Me.” But that simple design hides some important complexities, both historically and today, as it appears in rallies demanding President Donald Trump be allowed to remain in office.

The world has said “good riddance” to 2020 and ushered in a new year. Although 2020 was a year in which many people faced extraordinary challenges, it did come with a silver lining for advocates of a strong Second Amendment right—unprecedented growth in the number of Americans who embrace their right to keep and bear arms.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Americans bought an estimated 21 million firearms in 2020, with 8.4 million Americans buying a gun for the first time last year.

A Montana House committee held its first hearing Wednesday on a bill that would expand where and how people can carry weapons, including on college campuses.

The president of the Ohio Conference of the NAACP wants a meeting with Ohio Gov. Mile DeWine to talk about DeWine's support for a new Ohio law that critics say is racist and will result in more Black people getting unjustifiably killed by whites.

"We need clear comprehensive gun laws and not excessive force gun laws," Tom Roberts said after DeWine on Monday signed Senate Bill 175, enacting the Stand Your Ground law in Ohio.

Record Gun Sales and Diverse Ownership Mean Rocky Prospects for Restrictions

Joe Biden will enter the White House this month at the head of a political party that in recent years has been overtly hostile to self-defense rights, even to the point of advocating impossible-to-enforce bans on popular firearms. But the opportunity has passed for the restrictions he peddles as "common sense reforms." In an era of political instability and distrust in government, Americans of varying political beliefs are purchasing guns in record numbers. And those millions of new weapons and their owners are bound to remain beyond the reach of politicians' wish lists of restrictive laws.
 

WY: Ammunition shortage continues through year

There are some good signs during what has been a nearly year-long shortage in ammunition.

At stores, handfuls of boxes of even some of the most sought-after calibers are spending some time on the shelf before being snatched up. And an indoor range has been able to lean on longtime relationships and a unique business model to keep plenty of ammo available for those who use the range.

But the ammo shortage, which began with fears of COVID-19, continued through a summer of demonstrations and a fall presidential election, is still frustrating customers and ammo sellers alike.

Kim DiScala’s letter titled “Government is taking away our constitutional rights” in the Dec. 19-20 edition of the Star is virtually devoid of facts.

She asserts that “It’s not a privilege to own a firearm, it is a right ... without restriction or stipulation, that is not to be infringed.” While throughout our country’s history, the Second Amendment has provoked much debate and controversy, there was virtually no clear resolution by the courts what rights exactly the amendment protects before our era.

The Montana Legislature is poised to take up a number of gun-related bills this session, the first being House Bill 102 brought by Joliet Republican Rep. Seth Berglee seeking to expand the locations where concealed handguns may be carried, including on college campuses.

The legislation invokes familiar arguments from firearms proponents that places where guns are prohibited are vulnerable to mass shootings and that college campuses specifically, because they are government-owned, should not infringe on the otherwise lawful carrying of concealed firearms.

Create a crisis out of nothing (I’m gonna carry my gun anywhere I want like that there Constitution says I can!), pretend offense when you’re rightly opposed (there are laws about where and how firearms can be carried, Representative Boebert), and then bitch on Twitter about it — as in the video below. Then link said video to your fundraising website, and wow: Running a half-assed diner that got attention after its gun-toting owner raised a Second Amendment ruckus sure seems like small fried potatoes now.

Representative Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), a newly seated member of the 117th Congress, said in an ad that she intends to carry her Glock handgun in Washington, D.C., and in Congress.

“Even though I now work in one of the most liberal cities in America, I refused to give up my rights, especially my second amendment rights,” Boebert says in the ad. “I will carry my firearm in DC and in Congress.”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. --JOHN F. KENNEDY
