Every home owner and business owner in Tennessee has the right to use a gun to defend their property. It's a right some say is their only true line of defense.

Harold Williams has been held at gunpoint several times while working at Adobe Liquors on North Broadway.
 

TN: Local parents, educators weigh in on "student self-defense bill"

A recently introduced bill in Tennessee is creating a lot of buzz among parents and educators concerned about bullying in our schools.

The proposal aims to loosen those tough no-fighting polices. It's would give students the option to fight back without punishment if school officials determine it was in self-defense.

Under current, wide-spread "Zero Tolerance" fighting policies, those who attack others and those who defend themselves are punished equally.

On guns, President Obama needs a "Plan B."

The president himself recognizes that the votes probably aren't there to pass any significant gun legislation through Congress. In his State of the Union address, he was reduced to pleading with Congress to allow a vote at all, never mind actually enact anything.
 

Gun Stocks Have Catalysts For At Least 4 Years

The premise of this article is that the very debates that drive gun sales: further prohibitions to buying them, magazine capacity minimization, or outright bans, are only going to continue as this country's demographics change.

While I have an FOID card, and come from a family that owns rifles, shotguns and handguns, I'll try not to make this political. I will stick to history, demographics, and other supply and demand issues that will affect the gun stocks.
 

NY: The Second Amendment Is Not About Hunting

Hunters were not silenced by lack of an organized voice as you depicted in your February 7 editorial. They were silenced by a Governor and opportunistic politicians who violated their own rules to pass flawed legislation after midnight avoiding the customary three day review rule. Representatives had less than one hour to read the 25,000 word document before voting. Organizations representing hunters had no opportunity to be heard.
 

Why Concealed Carry Permits Do Not Belong on College Campuses

Well, from a logical perspective, guns cannot save lives. They are inanimate objects made to cause harm to another being. I understand Zuegel’s argument that it is possible for fewer people to be killed in a mass shooting if someone is able to “take out” the shooter. However, by no means are guns tools of peace. At the end of the day, guns are tools meant to cause harm to another being.

A controversial Alaska gun bill sponsored by House Speaker Mike Chenault that would put federal agents at risk of felony charges for enforcing certain future weapons laws cleared the lone committee assigned to hear it Monday, despite a legal opinion saying it is likely unconstitutional.

Chenault's proposal is immensely popular among Republicans and a few Democrats. It has 19 co-sponsors, so half the House is already signed onto it.

Joe Salazar argued that call boxes and whistles were sufficient enough to protect women from rape. Revealing Politics grabbed the video:

After much heated debate on Friday, a package of gun-control measures passed in the Colorado House on Monday, including limiting magazines to 15 rounds, background checks for all gun transactions, requiring gun owners to pay for their own background checks and banning concealed weapons on public college campuses. The four bills will now move to the Senate.

Some state lawmakers are seizing on a perceived shift in attitudes on gun safety measures to push for reforms.

Several new bills proposed by Democratic Representative Ron Waters, who represents parts of Delaware and Philadelphia counties, would ban military-style assault weapons and roll back the so-called "Castle Doctrine," which allows Pennsylvanians to use deadly force in cases of self-defense.
 

Is it time to reassess the Second Amendment?

Opponents of gun rights seem to be frustrated by the Constitution.

The Constitution is a flawed document, they claim. The founders weren't infallible. What passed for rights in an 18th-century context can't possibly stand muster in our modern society.

Their arguments are based in rationality, they say. After all, guns kill people, right? It is time to reassess the Second Amendment.

A Boulder company says it will leave the state if HB 1224 becomes law.

Magpul, Colorado's largest and most profitable manufacturer of high-capacity ammunition magazines, said it would leave the state if the HB 1224 becomes law.

If Magpul leaves, Colorado will lose an estimated $85 million dollars in revenue and approximately 600 jobs.

The National Rifle Association opposes all four bills, saying they Colorado's bills are threatening Americans' Second Amendment rights, said NRA spokeswoman Stephanie Samford.
 

NY: SAFE Act protestors hold second rally in park

SAFE Act protestors and Second Amendment rights activists filled a park outside of the Capitol last Tuesday for the second time since the passage of the controversial legislation.

Emboldened by sympathetic lawmakers and conservative pundits, the protesters braved 30-degree weather, wind and sloppy ground conditions to speak out against new state gun laws they say are overly restrictive, ineffective and tainted by the process by which they were pushed through the Senate and Assembly last month. The protesters chanted slogans, waved signs and displayed effigies of Republican "redcoat traitors," who voted for the restrictive gun laws.

If, as expected, a law allowing carrying concealed handguns in Illinois is passed, it will not be the last legislation on the topic, according to concealed carry advocate James "Bud" Harton, of Leland.

"When we get concealed carry passed next month, we're not done," Harton told an audience of three dozen at the Marseilles Rotary meeting Monday.

Harton, a retired Leland police chief and veteran of the Vietnam war with extensive military experience, has been working through Illinois Carry for a concealed carry law for seven years.

As Suleiman Yousef fires a sleek black AR-15-style rifle, orange and blue muzzle bursts flash inside the Trail Glades Gun Range in West Miami-Dade. The rapid-fire rounds ping off a metal target 100 yards away. His thick arms hold steady against the explosive recoil.

Then Yousef, a 31-year-old South Miami self-defense trainer with a bald dome and bushy beard, hands me the heavy weapon. His friend Sean Yamuni, a 33-year-old one-armed marksman, shows me how to release the safety with my right thumb. "You want to rest your cheek against the stock," Yamuni instructs. "Look for the red dot in the scope."
 

McCready death already being exploited

More than 3,250 stories have been published about the apparent suicide by country singer Mindy McCready, and USA Today didn’t waste much time putting the onus on guns with a headline declaring that her passing “highlights the role of guns in suicide.”

To paraphrase the popular quip, “Guns cause suicide like spoons cause people to get fat.”

The Seattle P-I.com’s coverage reveals quite a bit about Ms. McCready that suggests her death would have come sooner than later even if there weren’t a firearm in her entire neighborhood. The story notes, “In May 2010, she was hospitalized briefly after police responded to an overdose call at a home in North Fort Myers, Fla., owned by her mother.

Now there is a bill that deserves overwhelming support in the MO legislature. It will probably not go anywhere as it will offend the Democrap gun grabbers.

Mark Kirk is a token Republican that the left is using to push civilian disarmament on this country. He needs to go.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms has been recognized by the General Government; but the best security of that right after all is, the military spirit, that taste for martial exercises, which has always distinguished the free citizens of these States....Such men form the best barrier to the liberties of America — Gazette of the United States, October 14, 1789.
