A break-in was reported at Safes and Guns Unlimited in Keego Harbor.

Located on Orchard Lake Road near Commerce Road, the gun shop is near Abbot Middle School.

Police say the suspects broke out a front window using a long handled sledgehammer to gain entry. Officials say the perpetrators appear to be a pair of pre-teen individuals.

In an email to parents, the West Bloomfield School District superintendent Gerald Hill said there will be an added police presence at Roosevelt Elementary, Abbott Middle School, Orchard Lake Middle School and West Bloomfield High School during drop-off and pick-up periods at each building. The increased presence is a precaution, Hill said.
 

MI: Black Female Concealed Carry Holder And Police Chief Make Case For Being ‘Legally Armed In Detroit’

A Tuesday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment featured a black female concealed carry holder and Detroit’s black police chief making the case for legal concealed carry for protection in one of America’s largest and most violent cities.

“The liberals obviously hire body guards,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson said as the segment began. “They hide themselves away in the safety of their neighborhoods. What if people can’t afford to do that? What would gun bans mean for people who live in, say, Detroit, Michigan? This show went to Detroit to investigate that very question, and here’s what we found.”

Tucker’s crew interviewed concealed carry holder Alaina Gonville, whose weapon helped save her life during an armed carjacking.

In a speech — purportedly unscripted — given in acceptance of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, Chappelle surprised the staid Kennedy Center crowd with his description of the purpose of the Second Amendment.

Referring to the cancel culture and its mania for ruining the careers of comedians accused of being racist or homophobic, Chappelle said: “Don't get mad at 'em, don't hate on 'em," Chappelle said Sunday. "Man, it's not that serious. The First Amendment is first for a reason. Second Amendment is just in case the first one doesn't work out.”

October brought more donations to candidates and more knocks on constituent doors from both sides of the gun lobby.

Democratic coffers – which have reached historic levels of reported fundraising – swelled with October donations from Everytown for Gun Safety, a lobby group focused on reducing gun violence. Everytown contributed $938,238 to the Democratic party in 2019 according to The Virginia Public Access Project. More than $600,000 of that total was given in September.

Everytown outspent the National Rifle Association this year, which donated $273,000 to Republican candidates. In September, based on campaign finance reports, the NRA donated a little over $54,000.

The Criminal Justice committee tied 10-10 on whether to recommend passing the bill, after two Democrats, Reps. Andrew O’Hearne and John Bordenet sided with Republicans to oppose recommending it. A subsequent motion to recommend killing the bill also fell, 9-11, forcing the committee to move the bill to the House floor in January without a recommendation.

The third year after a presidential election doesn’t get a lot of attention. After all, there are only two governors’ races that headline results on the first Wednesday after the first Monday. But there are many other races decided on this coming election day.

Included in them are the state legislative elections in the Commonwealth of Virginia. There are 100 members of the House of Delegates and 40 members of the State Senate, and all 140 of those seats are up for grabs this year. This could matter a great deal for Second Amendment supporters.

After hearing arguments from both sides of the controversial topic, a judge in Oklahoma County on Wednesday denied a request asking for an injunction on Oklahoma's permitless carry law.

The law will allow people to carry a gun without a permit or any training. Rep. Jason Lowe filed a lawsuit regarding the law, saying the bill is unconstitutional because it violates a rule that laws have to be about one topic.

Kentucky law already allowed people to openly carry a gun without a permit. Senate Bill 150, which is now the Constitutional Carry law, got rid of the permit requirement for concealed guns as well.

While accepting the award, Gov. Bevin made it clear that as long as he's running the state, he will protect gun rights.

"The 27 simple words of the Second Amendment are as clear as they can possibly be," said Bevin. "Our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Republican state Sen. Joan Huffman, the chair of the committee, stressed to the lawmakers at the beginning of the hearing that “even though we’ve had a lot of talk about gun violence and gun control, this is not a committee about that, it’s about violence.”

But members of the public involved in the groups Gun Owners of America and Moms Demand Action later went head-to-head in testifying for “constitutional carry” and comprehensive background check laws respectively.

Protesters plan to show up at the Crossroads Gun Show which will be held at the Pima County Fairgrounds on Nov. 2 and Nov. 3.

They will be led by former Tucson city council member Molly McKasson, who helped pass firearm restrictions in Tucson parks and on public transportation in the 1990s. Those laws were later overturned by the state legislature.

But she is back in the gun debate again, leading a group called Citizens for a Safer Pima County.

It’s easy to love .22LR revolvers, especially single-action ones. With that in mind it should come as no surprise that when I heard about the Ruger Wrangler, I was excited.

Ohio House Republicans have signed on to the "stand your ground" self-defense bill introduced last week.

That's setting up suggestions that it could be part of a compromise to pass Governor Mike DeWine's gun violence plan issued following the Augst mass shooting in Dayton. Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports.

DeWine's "STRONG Ohio" bill will start in the Senate, where it's expected to get a better reception tham in the House. With 24 Republicans already signed on to "Stand Your Ground", it seems possible that it could be combined with DeWine's bill to get it passed. But DeWine said he’d rather his bill be passed as is,

Gun Owners of America filed an important amicus brief in the Ninth Circuit, defending standard capacity magazines in the Duncan v. Becerra case.

California law bans any magazine that can hold over ten rounds. But in March, a district court judge blocked the law from going into effect.

California appealed the decision to the full Ninth Circuit Court. Eighteen Democrat Attorneys General from around the country then followed suit by submitting a brief in support of the state’s ban.

GOA and its legal arm, Gun Owners Foundation (GOF), have weighed in on this case in conjunction with Gun Owners of California, the Heller Foundation, and several other pro-gun organizations.

WA: Momentum, Not Money, in WA Gun Control Repeal Effort

Grassroots momentum is building fast in a the admittedly-uphill effort to repeal Washington State’s gun control Initiative 1639, but the Seattle-based gun prohibition lobby is already using the pro-rights repeal effort to raise cash to fight gun owners, and buried in a story about the new campaign in the Seattle P-I.com is a hard truth: Money matters.

Money can literally buy an election, a fact not lost on wealthy anti-gunners. They're using Washington as a “test tube” to learn how to launch similar efforts in other states with the citizen initiative process. They can out-spend gun owners, and they know it.

Then, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, spent the month of October signing into law 17 more gun-related bills, almost all of which further infringe on the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners.

Among them was a retooling of the state’s already-problematic “gun violence restraining order” laws to further undermine due process for gun owners accused of being dangerous. Others significantly increase arbitrary burdens imposed on lawful gun owners.
