Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear it in the mainstream news. Instructor Elizabeth Hautman joins host Rob Morse to talk about four recent examples.

Are you armed as you leave your bank in the middle of the afternoon?
Are you armed as you return to your car after shopping?
Are you armed as you work behind the counter of your store at night?
Do you have a gun nearby as you get out of bed in the morning?

These gun owners survived a lethal threat. Were they lucky, or did they have a plan? What would you do in their situation?

I sat in on a class where volunteer school staff learned to stop an armed attack. They learned how to treat the injured until help arrives at their school. When they need these skills, they will need them urgently. Mere seconds will count and lives will depend on their actions.

We need more of these trained teachers.
 

Should We Leave Our Schools and Churches Unprotected?

It is hard to talk about violence without shutting down the conversation. We all have an opinion about how to protect our kids. Let’s also face facts; we would have solved the problem of dead children in our schools and in our churches if the solution were easy.

Unfortunately, lots of the opinions we see in social media are little more than shallow reasons to stop thinking about a hard and unpleasant problem. What excuses have you heard people use so they don’t have to think deeply about protecting people they love?

This isn’t a problem of deep thought, but of shallow words.

Ruger Single Six Revolver – Still One of the Best Handguns to Own

The Ruger Single Six hearkens back to the popularity of TV Westerns that came with the dawn of television in the households of ordinary Americans in the 1950s. Back then, Ruger was a newcomer to the game–not the giant it is today. Colt stopped producing their legendary Single Action Army Revolver so they could focus on production for World War II contracts.

In a recent interview with The New York Times regarding his upcoming memoir, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens shares what he contends are the three worst court decisions to come down during his long tenure. His first choice, unsurprisingly, is District of Columbia v. Heller, the 2008 ruling that finally codified the Second Amendment as an individual right.

“West Wing” and “Get Out” actor Bradley Whitford hates the Second Amendment. Like, really hates it. So much so that he’ll shame anyone out there who believes in the right to bear arms:

No, House Bill 228 has only passed the Ohio House of Representatives. It will need to pass the Ohio Senate and be signed by Gov. John Kasich. Kasich said he would veto the Stand Your Ground Bill if it reaches his desk. But Ohio’s governor-elect, Mike DeWine — who takes office in January — said he supports Stand Your Ground legislation.

The suspect was taken to the hospital, where he’s being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The identity of neither man has been made public, because of the ongoing investigation.
 

IA: Pro-gun constitutional amendment could be on 2020 ballot in Iowa

A proposal that would amend Iowa's Constitution to add "right to bear arms" language needs to pass again in the 2019 or 2020 sessions for voters to weigh in on the issue.

Right now, Iowa is one of six state's that doesn't have "right to bear arms" protections in its constitution that mirrors the Second Amendment in the United States Constitution.

The proposal, House Resolution 2009, already passed the GOP-controlled legislature in 2018. Under Iowa law, any changes need to be approved by two General Assemblies before moving to the ballot.

Hockey pucks: They're small and heavy and — one Michigan college thinks — may be the perfect weapon against an active shooter on campus.

Oakland University, a public school in Rochester Hills, near Detroit, is distributing thousands of 94-cent hockey pucks for just that reason.

On Black Friday, police responded to a shooting at an Alabama mall. They reported that they had shot and killed the shooter, an armed black man, before anyone else was hurt. Not long after, they had to correct themselves: The man officers had killed was Emantic Bradford Jr., a veteran, who was trying to stop the shooting himself. The real shooter is still at large.
 

Getting in the Fight for Cultural Engagement

When we discuss the social stigmatization of the Second Amendment, not to mention efforts at corporate gun control, one thing makes those things easier: The fact that those who seek to take away our Second Amendment rights have allies who have a lot of sway in our pop culture.

The NRA is largely off the pop culture battlefield, and that is a mistake. In some ways, it is a tough hill to climb. Hollywood is one place where support of very restrictive gun laws is well-entrenched. Indeed, virtually every A-list star seems to back Michael Bloomberg’s agenda – or something along those lines.
 

WY: Trial unlikely in UW gun ban case

Only the Legislature, not state agencies, can restrict gun rights in Wyoming, Laramie attorney Jason Tangeman is arguing in a lawsuit against the University of Wyoming.

Tangeman is now representing a Uinta County man, Lyle Williams, in a challenge to the legality of UW’s gun ban in a civil case filed in Albany County. Williams was cited in April after carrying a gun on the Laramie campus during the Wyoming State Republican Party Convention in April.

UW regulations restrict the possession of guns on campus, which Tangeman has argued is in violation of state law prohibiting gun regulations by any “city, town, county, political subdivision or any other entity.”

Police say evidence and statements investigators received make them believe Parks was shot in self-defense.

The shooting happened on November 6 at Butler Terrace. That's off of Seminole Drive.

Police told WAAY 31 investigators can't release much about the case, but they believe a domestic fight led up to the shooting.

The department told us it's now up to a Madison County grand jury to decide if they believe the shooter acted in self-defense or not.

"We get to the point where evidence is being reviewed and it appears to look like self-defense. We will take all that evidence, and we will take that evidence and hand it over to a grand jury," Lt. Michael Johnson said.
 

Gun Control Twist: Saving One Life “Does Not Justify” Right to Carry

Gun control advocates often use some version of the phrase “if it saves one life” in order to justify their ineffective proposals. A few weeks ago, the anti-gun editorial page of the Chicago Sun-Times offered a different take. Fearful that the Right to Carry was getting too much good publicity in the wake of an Illinois concealed-carry permit holder’s heroic actions, the Sun-Times editorial board felt it necessary to lecture its readers, “One brave rescue of a Cicero cop doesn’t justify concealed guns.”

Team PSA does it again with a mind blowing deal on a 1000 round case of Hornady Frontier 5.56 NATO ammo and ten (10) PMAG 30 AR/M4 GEN M2 MOE magazines for $330.00 and FREE Shipping.

MAGPUL PMAG MOE Gen2 mags are averaging $11.50 each, so lets just call it $100 for the 10 mags, that makes the ammo $0.239 a round which blows away any deal on Hornady ammo you can find today.
 

Why banning handguns makes sense

Gun violence statistics for the U.S. reveal that the handgun is, by far, the type of firearm most used to kill someone. Handguns are used in about 70 percent of all gun homicides with rifles and shotguns used in 7 percent and unknown firearms in about 25 percent. There were approximately 7,150 handgun homicides in 2016.

The U.S. is awash in handguns. Their numbers have been steadily increasing from an estimated 65 million in 1994 to about 111 million in 2015, an increase of around 71 percent.
 

Gun Control and a Doctor’s ‘Lane’

The same holds true for gun control. I believe a physician may indulge her or his First Amendment rights to decry the Second Amendment or to express an opinion on limiting gun ownership, but let’s face it, when it comes to gun policy, we doctors are not experts. That goes not just for individuals but also for groups like the American College of Physicians, which last month updated its firearms policy by offering restrictive strategies intended to “help reduce firearms-related injuries and deaths by keeping guns out of the hands of those at risk of harming themselves or others.” The ACP went on to suggest that physicians need to provide guidance to legislators.

McBath, an African-American woman whose activism was motivated by the murder of her son, Jordan Davis, in 2012 by a white man angered by the volume of his music, expressed support for the Second Amendment as well as changes in gun laws, including closing background check loopholes. Her platform did not stop there, also featuring a variety of other issues of concern, including affordable health care and middle-class tax cuts. And McBath was not the only new member of Congress elected on a similar platform.

How did he feel about American citizens possessing subsequent production models of the handgun presented to him?

Hoover didn't like the idea one bit, and in typical elitist “Only Ones” fashion did what he could to encourage banning “highly-powered firearms.” That’s the gist of a letter from Hoover to Attorney General Homer Stille Cummings dated March 19, 1936.

The Supreme Court has held that various parts of the Bill of Rights apply to the states, not just the federal government, including the Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishment. Most recently, in a 2010 gun rights decision, it ruled that the Second Amendment right to bear arms applies to the states.

Conservative and liberal justices appeared sympathetic to Timbs. Conservative Neil Gorsuch, appointed by President Donald Trump last year, was the most outspoken, almost berating Indiana's lawyer, state Solicitor General Thomas Fisher.
