Responsible gun owners defended themselves thousands of times a day, but you didn't hear it in the news. Instructor David Cole joins host Rob Morse to talk about four recent examples.

Should you defend strangers at home and in pubiic?

These gun owners survived a lethal threat. What should we do if we were in their place? Sources, text of the discussion, and a 24 minute audio podcast are available at the webpage.

Dr. Alan Lazzara combined his love of hunting deer, turkey and squirrels with his work as an emergency medicine doctor to research hunting safety.

The results of the study are timely with bow season underway in Michigan and deer firearms season a month away for the 700,000 hunters in Michigan.

Lazzara, an emergency medicine specialist at Henry Ford Allegiance in Jackson, found that injuries from falling out of a tree stand are two to three times more common than injury from hunting firearms negligence.

“I just did a research study over the last two years, we looked at the last five years of data and found six or seven tree stand injuries per year which doesn’t seem like a lot.

Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith has taken a stance against all the anti-gun provisions in the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (H.R. 1620) or VAWA.

The Senator does want to see VAWA pass but without all the anti-gun sections of the bill. She clarified her position to AmmoLand News and vowed not to vote for the bill if it has any of the many anti-gun provisions. Several other key Republicans have not been as transparent with their intent.

Trouble for a homeowner in Wichita, Kansas, started when a 40-year-old man was pounding on his neighbor's house around 7 p.m. Monday, KWCH-TV reported.

With that, the homeowner told the man to stop what he was doing, the station said.

But instead of stopping, the man turned his attention to the homeowner who told him to stop — and began attacking his residence, KWCH said.

The number of concealed handgun permits has risen 10.5% since 2020, according to a study from the Crime Prevention Research Center released Wednesday.

The number of permits rose by close to 2 million, shattering the 2017 record by more than 200,000, according to the data, with 8.3% of all U.S. adults holding permits and over 10% holding permits in 15 states.

The number of concealed handguns grew to 21.52 million in 2020, the study showed.

What do you then need to exploit this chaos? Start with the politically motivated appointment of judges to the federal bench, most emphatically including the Supreme Court. Add a reduction in federal monitoring of corporate behavior, continuing indiscriminate support for the Second Amendment and gun ownership, and the growth of extremist groups, which is up over 30% in the past few years.

Is this all because Americans have stopped thinking and find it easier to join up with any one of dozens of available dissident groups who are eager to tell them what to do?

From the success in Sweden of herd immunity to the use of Ivermectin in Uttar Pradesh in India where COVID is just about non-existent, even with only 20 percent of the population vaccinated. See that information, even though it’s out there, is not mentioned or else discounted as “fake news” by those controlling the narrative.

For all you of the media who have followed lock step with the demands of what has now become a tyrannical government, the first amendment that will fall after the second amendment will be your freedom of speech.

Sadly, I believe I hear Taps being played.

By now, it's no secret that Americans have largely divided along political lines and really don't like the people in the opposing tribe. What's a work in progress, though, is the growing willingness to do something very dramatic about that mutual loathing so that a temporarily dominant faction can't be obstructed by its enemies. Increasingly, our countrymen contemplate a balkanized future in which newly formed statelets are led by woke or MAGA Caesars. It's a future worth averting through some solution that lets people run their own lives independent of their opponents, if that's at all possible.

New Jersey has joined a four-state coalition with Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania to take on the issue of gun violence in the region.
Gov. Phil Murphy held a virtual event with Govs. Ned Lamont, Kathy Hochul and Tom Wolf to announce the initiative.
“The reality is that guns don’t understand the concept of state lines. But those who purchase them do,” Murphy said.
Facing an influx of guns trafficked from states with looser gun restrictions, the four Democrats have joined forces.

Applications for concealed weapons permits have gone down significantly since the Utah State Legislature changed a law requiring them – at least in state applications. Out of state applications are more than making up for that – which is keeping the money flowing in.

What’s not known is if that will continue to happen.

In his video, he announces his self-proclaimed status as a “Trump Warrior” and notes his two main issues: election integrity and the Second Amendment. He brags about attending various fake recount events (though for some reason he forgets to mention his presence at the Jan. 6 insurrection) and suggests the election was stolen, the biggest of the Trump dog whistles, a claim that has been rebutted by every court and even by the staged Arizona sham recount that, when all was said and done, actually increased the margin by which Biden won the state.

Guns are a part of life in households across America. Josh McNair, a lead gun safety expert at the BASICS: Range & Gun shop, believes everyone should have training if they are going to have a gun around.

“The Second Amendment gives us the right to carry, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone’s prepared to carry,” McNair says.

Michael Sappe is a private gun safety instructor, and he agrees.

 

A major Second Amendment case before the Supreme Court could topple gun restrictions

The stakes in one of the most significant Second Amendment cases in U.S. history are high.

The Supreme Court’s ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, expected by mid-2022, could declare a New York state restriction on carrying concealed handguns in public places unconstitutional.

Such a ruling in favor of the plaintiffs, which include a National Rifle Association affiliate, could loosen gun regulations in many parts of the country.

In my view as a Second Amendment scholar, this case is also noteworthy in that how the court reaches its conclusion could affect the Second Amendment analysis of all weapons laws in the future.
 

WI: Kyle Rittenhouse’s lawyers claim hunting laws allowed him to carry weapon during fatal shootings

Attorneys representing Kyle Rittenhouse are arguing that hunting laws permitted the then-17-year-old to carry an assault-style weapon through Kenosha, Wisconsin last year, NBC News reported on Thursday (Oct. 7). State law prohibits minors from possessing short-barreled rifles and shotguns, but not the AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle that Rittenhouse used to kill two people, his lawyers claimed.

U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Roger Marshall (R-Kansas), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), and Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) today introduced a bill to bring parity to gun owners using public lands.

The Recreational Lands Defense Act would restore Second Amendment rights of individuals recreating on lands managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Under current law, an individual may carry a firearm on lands managed by the U.S. Department of Interior and U.S. Department of Agriculture, including National Parks and National Forests, as long as it is consistent with state law.

Wafer’s attorneys claimed he shot her in self-defense but, it didn’t stick – and he was sentenced to at least 17 years in prison. Now, a new chance at a lesser sentence.

"He grabbed a shotgun and opened a locked steel door at the front of his and immediately and immediately shot 19-year-old Renisha McBride in the face killing her," said Amanda Smith, from the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office. "Mr. Wafer initially told police twice that he did not know the gun was loaded and that it went off, or that it went off accidentally."

In late July 2020, as Louisville, Kentucky, fumed in the wake of Breonna Taylor’s killing in a botched police raid, a militia group descended on the city.

A phalanx of hundreds of Black men and women, all clad in black, marched through downtown. Some wore body armor, others had gas masks. They wore pistols on their belts and carried shotguns and AR-15-style rifles.

Since the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic over a year ago, individuals and organizations alike have been concerned about an ongoing problem: reactive violence toward the Asian American community. While many have advocated for Asian and Asian American safety through advertising campaigns, local events, and city politics, one industry in particular has taken to this tumultuous time as a unique marketing opportunity – the firearms industry. With the ever growing population of Asian Americans, gun lobbyists have shifted their sights toward this vast, untapped market of potential buyers, a move that has many community groups nervous.

A West Virginia man appears poised to argue that he acted in self-defense when he intervened in a domestic dispute and killed another man at a gas station. A recently-released 911 call could prove instrumental to the defense’s likely theory of the case.

Carl Rose Jr., 39, stands accused of murder in the second degree over the late May shooting death of 54-year-old James Anthony Oldham.

If President Joe Biden had his way, anti–Second Amendment zealot David Chipman would already be implementing unconstitutional gun-control regulations as head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. At National Review, we helped keep the pressure on, exposing the nominee’s numerous professional and ideological shortcomings. Kevin Williamson even nominated one of our own to fill the job.

Inside an Ultra-Right Festival: Guns, a Doomsday Church & Steve Bannon

Global takeover conspiracy theories. Christian pastors and local sheriffs still pissed that Donald Trump lost the 2020 election. And the head of a group that even the reserved Facebook censors labeled a “violent social militia.”

Few Americans are even aware that the gun company Kahr and a rural Pennsylvania doomsday church—both run by the same ultra-rich Korean family—hold an annual “Freedom Festival” that attracts gun enthusiasts and the type of people who attach “Don’t Tread on Me” flags to the back of their trucks. But in the wake of the failed Jan. 6 insurrection, the event’s amalgamation of sovereign citizens and alt-truthers has taken on a new meaning. And now, it’s even got an all-star lineup.
