House Bill 81 is a common-sense clarification in the laws relating to the statute governing physical force in defense of a person. The bill proposes to clarify that an individual is justified in using physical force in defense of another individual, such as a family member, when a felony is being committed within the individual’s dwelling or curtilage. This is a common-sense clarification in the law, which ensures victims of crime can use force in defense of themselves or loved ones, without the worry of being prosecuted.

Philip Smith, founder of the NAAGA, said that more than 2,000 people joined the organization in just a few hours after the police-involved killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020.

“That broke our records,” he said. “We’re getting a ton of folks from all over.”

And Smith’s account is supported by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association that tracks gun sales and analyzes industry trends. According to Mark Oliva, the foundation’s director of public affairs, the rise in Black gun ownership is unprecedented.

Reconsidering the Backup Gun in Troubled Times

Carrying a second handgun is a practice that literally goes back centuries. In the days of flintlock pistols, which provided a single shot, multiple guns were often carried on body. In the old west, cap and ball revolvers, and even the later single-action revolvers that used contained cartridges, proved slow to reload; therefore, multiple guns were often carried by those expecting trouble. Even in 20th Century law enforcement, the majority of which witnessed the dominance of the double-action revolver, multiple guns were often carried by law enforcement as reloading a wheel gun simply proves too slow under fire.

Indiana's Republican lawmakers are attempting to deter protests that have elevated since George Floyd's death with a series of bills that would increase penalties for rioting, vandalizing monuments, blocking emergency vehicles and violating curfews.

The proposals come in response to May 2020 protests against racial injustice and police brutality spurred by Floyd's death in Minneapolis police custody. In Indianapolis, it resulted in several nights of sometimes violent protests, as well as clashes between demonstrators and police.

The Washington state Legislature is considering legislation that would make it illegal to openly carry weapons during protests or on the grounds of the state Capitol.

Opponents of Senate Bill 5038 have labelled it an assault on the Second Amendment, while the bill’s supporters argue it is necessary to prevent more violent confrontations like the ones that occurred during public demonstrations last year.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” reads the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

However, I ask: Why so many guns? Why high-capacity magazines and clips? Why military-style guns? Why rapid firing? Why concealed guns? I would be interested in hearing from anyone who can offer answers to these questions.

A pistol caliber carbine, also known as a PC Carbine or simply a PCC, is exactly what it sounds like: a short-barreled rifle that is chambered for calibers typically used in semi-auto pistols or revolvers.

The longer barrel of the rifle allows for the handgun rounds to reach greater velocities than they can when fired from handguns, resulting in greater accuracy and more power.

The bill's Senate sponsor, Bob Ballinger, R-Ozark, said supporters of the bill would move to extract it from committee to the House floor this afternoon. Ballinger said he believed enough Republican support remained for the bill to surpass the two-thirds threshold to extract it. The House has 100 members, 77 Republicans and 23 Democrats.

"I think it's easier to vote 'no' when you're not going to be held accountable for it," Ballinger said, referring to the fact that voice votes are not recorded for each member.

But, laying out his legislative priorities this week for the first session since the shootings took place, Abbott stressed protections for gun owners and made no mention of the 2019 shootings.

“We need to erect a complete barrier against any government official anywhere from treading on gun rights in Texas," Abbott said, adding that he was pushing to make Texas a “Second Amendment sanctuary state.”
 

TN: Rep. Campbell's handgun bill lacks common sense

Anyone has a right to operate a boat on Tennessee’s lakes and waterways provided they have passed a boater safety course, or to drive a motor vehicle on state roads provided they have passed the state’s driving test.

Those provisions are necessary to enhance public safety, just as is the state’s firearm safety course, which is required to obtain a permit to carry a handgun in Tennessee.

Rep. Scotty Campbell of Mountain City wants to change that. “The Constitution does not say that you have to pay money for a permit to have permission to carry a firearm,” he said in introducing a bill that would allow state residents to go armed without a permit.

Michael and Kristin Song of Guilford, whose 15-year-old son’s accidental shooting death was the impetus for the Connecticut law, and all seven members of the state’s congressional delegation joined in a video conference Wednesday to renew their campaign for a federal version.
 

MO: Greene County sheriff changes mind on gun legislation after lawmakers make changes

Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott says he’s changed his mind after two Springfield-area lawmakers changed the wording of two bills intended to protect the Second Amendment and further ease restrictions for gun owners.

Sen. Eric Burlison (R-Christian County) and Rep. Jered Taylor (R-Republic) sponsored the legislation to establish the Second Amendment Preservation Act.

The lawmakers say the bills will prevent police and deputies in Missouri from enforcing any federal gun laws, even if the federal laws become stricter than what they are now.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crime. — Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson
