MI: Michigan deer firearm season is nigh, interest high

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic — or perhaps because of it — Michigan is seeing booming interest in hunting.

As the state heads into deer firearm season beginning Sunday, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources says there are 474,066 deer hunters in Michigan, up 11% from 427,902 this time last year.

The increase in numbers could be due to the pandemic, said Dustin Isenhoff, a marketing and outreach specialist with the DNR. And the growing number of hunters tracks rising interest this year in everything from kayaks and fishing gear to bicycles and just about anything else done outside, socially distanced.

Led by Kayla Reifel and Emma Mackenzie, Eagle River captured its third straight Cook Inlet Conference riflery championship in a virtual competition this week.

Reifel was the top shooter with score of 293, which included a perfect score of 100 from the prone position. Mackenzie placed second with a 291 and teammate Abigail Foger was fifth with a 289, giving the Wolves three of the competition’s top five shooters.

It was a close team race, with the top three squads separated by 40 points.

Eagle River’s team of 12 led the way with 3,336 points. The Service Cougars, winners of the CIC regular-season championship, placed second with 3,320 — 16 points behind Eagle River and 24 points ahead of third-place West, which had 3,296.

The District of Columbia vs. Heller 554US570 (2008) was a landmark decision of the Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, unconnected with service in a militia for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense.

Something remarkable happened recently in the pages of The New York Times, a newspaper that has never been friendly to the Second Amendment. In a story headlined “A Divided Nation Agrees on One Thing: Many People Want a Gun,” the newspaper actually put forth a balanced, in-depth report on why so many people have bought guns for the first time in their lives this year.

The Times quoted Douglas Jefferson, vice president for the National African American Gun Association, explaining, “The year 2020 has been just one long advertisement for why someone may want to have a firearm to defend themselves.”

A recent Gallup Poll found that 60 percent of Americans own guns in order to feel safe.

When the research group asked a random sampling of 309 gun-owning American adults as to the reasons for owning one, the vast majority cited a desire to protect themselves.

After that, 36 percent said they owned them for hunting, while 13 percent use them for recreation. Only 5 percent cited the Second Amendment as motivation, despite its frequent use as a talking point on the issue.
 

GA: The Choice for Freedom is Clear in Georgia’s Runoff Elections

As both elections for Georgia’s seats in the U.S. Senate head towards runoff elections on January 5, it is important to note where the candidates stand on your rights. Both elections are crucial for the future of the Second Amendment in this country.

In this first of two installments, we’ll break down the race between Sen. David Perdue (R) and Jon Ossoff (D), who both purport to be in support of the Second Amendment, but, in reality, only one of them really is pro-freedom.

Ossoff, who previously lost a 2017 special election for the U.S. House of Representatives, has deceptively said that he will “defend our Second Amendment.” In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Both Bellar’s attorney, Andrew Kirkpatrick, and Morrison’s attorney, George Lyons, argued the Michigan Attorney General Office’s case against their clients are flimsy, claiming the statements are protected by the Constitution.

“At the core of this, there are First and Second Amendment protections,” Lyons said. “There’s a misguided impression the Constitution protects only people who think the way we all do. I remember seeing dummies with Obama written on them hanging from trees. That was protected speech. These men talked about the Governor, but they did nothing else but talk.”

Arnold Ventures wishes to paint a grim picture that firearms are an epidemic much like political activist and gun control billionaire Michael Bloomberg. John and Laura Arnold have commissioned the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago to construct and convene a panel of medical professionals to organize a wishlist of dangerous and overreaching proposals. These demands are detailed in the Blueprint for a U.S. Firearms Data Infrastructure. With major changes possible in Washington, D.C., it is crucial to not only examine the large, sweeping gun control proposals but also to look at the less attention-grabbing proposals, like changing how the government collects, shares, and presents data.

Some state legislators received a draft of DeSantis’ “anti-mob” legislation last September, but it was only reported publicly in the last week by The Miami Herald and the Tampa Bay Times.

Today, we're sharing an episode of another podcast we like. "Gun Play" is produced by Guns & America and KERA in Dallas, Texas.

2018 was the deadliest year in U.S. history for school shootings. And that year, a youth theater company from Dallas set out on a cross-country journey to create an original play about the many arguments we have over Second Amendment rights, mass shootings, background checks and automatic weapons.

The commonwealth violated its legal duty to provide exculpatory evidence to Kelvin Omar Gonzalez in a timely fashion and irreparably damaged his ability to mount a defense at his Jan. 5 trial, Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge Thomas P. Mann wrote in an opinion this month.

A witness told police immediately after the Thanksgiving 2019 shooting that the victim, Ever Deras-Borjas, 30, had a knife and that Gonzalez, then 17, warned him, “Don’t get close, I have a gun,” according to the opinion.

Wendy's threat refers to the September 30 video tweet that Biden had shared on his official account, sharing photos of extremists with guns. The shot of Rittenhouse was in the same video, which included the audio of Fox News' Chris Wallace asking the sitting POTUS to condemn White supremacists. In the caption, Biden wrote, "There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow White supremacists on the debate stage last night.”

It baffles me to see someone training with a full-size pistol worn in a thigh rig slung from a tactical belt supporting a slew of magazines—only to stow said gear and strap on a subcompact pistol or subnose revolver. Then, of course, they put on a cover garment, which they haven’t practiced a single draw from all day, to head out into their real world.

Justice Samuel Alito told the Federalist Society on Thursday night that two constitutional protections – the First Amendment right to free exercise of religion, and the Second Amendment right to bear arms – are rapidly becoming “second-class” liberties. Alito’s keynote address at the group’s 2020 National Convention was the first public appearance by a Supreme Court justice (aside from the court’s telephonic oral arguments) since the election.

President of the Montana Shooting Sports Association Gary Marbut was on Friday’s Talk Back program answering questions from listeners about firearms issues.

Marbut, who has helped to author the majority of Montana’s gun laws over the last 20 years, spoke about legislation he’s working on for the 2021 session of the Montana Legislature.

“It looks like our flagship bill will be one to eliminate those dangerous gun free zones where only criminals are armed in all of the various aspects of Montana and there are a number of different kinds of gun free zones that are established in law,” said Marbut. “We would like to see those reduced.”

With gun sales surging in the African American community, some leaders are taking to the streets to educate community members about proper gun safety and etiquette. Retail studies show that 15,000 African Americans have become new gun owners in 2020 so far. In this politically charged environment, leaders in Columbia feel as though the rise speaks for itself.
