The Vermont Supreme Court has rejected Max Misch’s appeal on constitutional grounds regarding firearms-related charges he faces in Bennington.

The court issued a decision Friday, rejecting the contention of Misch’s attorneys that a provision in state law under which he was charged violates the Vermont and U.S. constitutions.

“We concluded that the magazine ban is a reasonable regulation of the right of the people to bear arms for self-defense, and therefore affirm the trial court’s denial of defendant’s motion to dismiss the charges against him … " the decision stated in part.

Well, gun owners knew this was coming: Another call for “common sense” gun control, another call for a gun ban. The trouble is, I have no faith President Joe Biden knows what he is talking about. He has a history of terrible advice on firearms for self-defense.

Remember his quote when saying why no one needed an AR-15? “I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house.’”

When we take away, or voluntarily give up, our right to bear arms, we are starting down a slippery slope. What will be next? Where will it lead?

The Second Amendment is about power, the people's power. It is essential to our freedom. To chip away at this amendment is dangerous. One of our first steps in the establishment of totalitarian government is to take away the people's weapons.

Two sources tell CBS12 News the shooter told police he acted in self defense. He was interviewed by police and released without charges later the same evening.

"You can use deadly force to protect yourself or someone else against death or great harm," said Ian Goldstein, a West Palm Beach defense attorney who is not involved with this case.
 

Researchers propose ‘ethically correct AI’ for smart guns that locks out mass shooters

A trio of computer scientists from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York recently published research detailing a potential AI intervention for murder: an ethical lockout.

The big idea here is to stop mass shootings and other ethically incorrect uses for firearms through the development of an AI that can recognize intent, judge whether it’s ethical use, and ultimately render a firearm inert if a user tries to ready it for improper fire.

In a 4-0 vote, the Jefferson County Commission approved a resolution Thursday evening declaring the county to be a Second Amendment sanctuary.

Commissioner Jane Tabb abstained from voting on the resolution, which was placed on the agenda by Commissioner Tricia Jackson.

“I decided to introduce the Second Amendment sanctuary county resolution to the Jefferson County Commission, because I am a constitutional conservative who took an oath to support and uphold the United States Constitution and the Constitution of West Virginia,” Jackson said.

A Democratic-sponsored proposal to create a public gun registry poses some dangerous potential risks, including to Second Amendment rights, law enforcement officers are warning.

The bill in Congress represents a "gross intrusion on your rights and your protections," Kevin Hassett, president of the Retired Police Association of the State of New York, told Fox News.

Specifically, a public gun registry would present significant risks for retired law enforcement officers like him, Hassett warned, going so far as to deem the legislation "anti-police."

Caught on camera - a bold thief steals a gun from a man open-carrying at a gas station. The crime happened in January, but Detroit police has just released the video of the incident hoping to get the gun and the perpetrator - off the streets.

A surveillance camera at the BP at Seven Mile and Wyoming captured the perp in a red Nike hoodie walking up behind a 53-year-old man open carrying a pistol.

He yanks it from the holster, points it at the victim, and takes off running with a second man who appears to be a partner in crime.

Pandemic-exacerbated delays in processing firearm owner and concealed carry license applications are raising frustration and renewing calls by some to change a broken system.

Tom Holmes, owner of Military Surplus Outlet at 1902 S. Main St., sees gun ownership as a constitutional right and questions why something like the Illinois Firearm Owner Identification card is needed to confirm that right. Illinois is just one of four states in the nation to have such a requirement.

House Bill 1106 imposes government mandated standards for storing firearms, requiring them to be made unavailable for self-defense reasons.

In this case, her fallback is HR 125, the Gun Safety: Not Sorry Act. Rather than a sweeping licensing and registration scheme that is deeply intrusive, it instead imposes a one-week waiting period for any semiautomatic firearm, many standard magazines (like those for a Glock 17), suppressors, and “armor-piercing ammo.”

Guns are allowed in statehouses in some form in 21 U.S. states, according to a review by The Associated Press. Eight states allow only concealed firearms inside their capitols, while two states allow only open carry.

Montana and Utah are two of at least 13 states that do not have metal detectors at the entrance to their capitols. The statehouses are open to the public even as many have closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Idaho is considered to be one of the most conservative states in the country. Recently, a national publication says that Idaho is the second most gun-friendly state in the country.

Guns and Ammo report that Idaho is second only to Arizona when it comes to being friendly to the Second Amendment. The magazine does an annual report based on legislative activity, current laws, the Castle Doctrine, Black Rifle Laws, National Firearms Act, Right to Carry, and CCW.

The House also passed HB200, which would allow a gun owner or someone living with a gun owner to voluntarily surrender the firearms in his or her home to a law enforcement officer if he or she felt unsafe for any reason, and HB267, which allows a person at risk of suicide or self-harm to voluntarily and temporarily forfeit his or her right to buy a gun. Both received bipartisan support; the former passed 63-4, and the latter passed 66-0.
All three gun safety bills will advance to the Senate.

“Lock and load” is a common term among gun enthusiasts.

“Lock and secure” may be one they’ll have to get used to.

The Senate Health and Public Affairs Committee on Friday endorsed 4-2 a bill that would make failure to secure a firearm in New Mexico a petty misdemeanor punishable by a fine.

Gun and Second Amendment advocates described Senate Bill 224 as an infringement on people’s rights.

For the second year in a row Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Karl Rhoads is advancing a proposal to ban rifle magazines that hold more than 10 bullets, but the measure appears likely to fail in the state House.

Rhoads announced Wednesday he will amend Senate Bill 301 to remove language that would have banned assault rifles and “assault shotguns” after his committee was deluged with more than 1,200 pages of testimony. The vast majority of the testimony opposed the bill.

HELENA — A bill signed into law Thursday by Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte allows concealed firearms to be carried in most places in the state without a permit, and expands the list of places where guns can be carried to include university campuses and the state Capitol.

The law allows concealed firearms to be carried without a permit inside bars and banks. Private property owners and tenants are allowed to ban firearms on their premises.

The law also allows permit holders to carry concealed firearms inside state and local government buildings, including the Capitol. Current rules ban all firearms inside the Capitol and other state government buildings.

These changes take effect immediately.

President Biden’s Misfire on ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban

President Joe Biden ran on being a “listener,” and bringing “unity” and “healing” to America. He’s not listening though. His tone-deaf call for increased gun control – including an “assault weapons” ban — comes in the midst of a record-breaking firearm and ammunition buying surge and record low public appetite for gun control.

Instead of listening to voters, President Biden ignored them and is calling to ban the AR-15, or modern sporting rifle (MSR), and in doing so he’ll infringe the constitutional rights of millions of Americans.

President Joe Biden said he’s figured it all out. Guns can be made safe if the firearm industry would just team up with Silicon Valley to create bio-enabled so-called “smart guns.”

This is according to a long-buried interview with the Las Vegas Sun conducted during the presidential campaign. The information contained in it is just now coming to light and some of the findings might show why. President Biden, as a candidate, was making outlandish pie-in-the-sky claims about theoretical, unproven, and unreliable firearm technology.
