It is late friday evening. You’re instantly alert when you hear your daughter scream. You and your wife run outside to see your daughter being hit by her boyfriend. You shout for them to stop. He hits her again, and you see that she is cut and bleeding from her face and her mouth. You’re armed. You fire a warning shot into the ground. Your wife runs up to the boyfriend, and the boyfriend hits your wife.

After two days of contention on the House floor, a bill proponents said would create additional protections for the right to bear arms is headed to the upper chamber.

HB 85, sponsored by Rep. Jered Taylor, creates the Second Amendment Preservation Act. The legislation would allow state gun laws to supersede federal regulations, including ones enacted after the bill’s effective date. The bill passed with an amendment that would also require those who knowingly deprive a Missouri citizen of those rights to be liable for redress for more than $50,000, including law enforcement. The bill included a severability clause, allowing the bill as a whole to survive if parts of it are invalidated.

More Oklahoma sheriffs are declaring their counties, "Second Amendment Sanctuaries."

Thursday, Pawnee County became the latest, and just last week Cherokee County was added to the growing list.

Bear Beam Firearms Owner, Charles Peters, said it's good to hear, but questions the weight they hold.

"The sheriffs saying we aren't going to support this or that is great, but it's going to take a lot of people to say enough is enough," Peters said. "Before anything's actually going to change."

On Jan. 28, Iowa House District 7 Republican Rep. Henry Stone of Forest City, voted to support a constitutional amendment to protect Iowans' right to keep and bear arms, helping pass it through the Iowa House.

"Iowa is one of only six states that currently has no language in its Constitution that protects the fundamental right to keep and bear arms," said Stone in a release. "This legislation would give Iowans the opportunity to state explicitly and unequivocally that their right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed upon by any future Legislature or overzealous Justices that are hostile to the Second Amendment."

A federal judge ruled Thursday to keep alive a lawsuit that claims the city of Philadelphia trampled gun rights after a surge of Covid-19 cases led the police unit that handles permit requests in the city to shutter.

Filed last fall by the Firearm Policy Coalition in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the lawsuit claims individual plaintiffs 29-year-old Keith Fetsurka and 35-year-old Timothy Sieck faced a months-long wait list just to apply for a permit to carry a loaded handgun due to Philadelphia’s massive backlog.

WI: The Kyle Rittenhouse story is looking more and more like a rerun of George Zimmerman

The video evidence is persuasive that Rittenhouse was pursued and cornered by a voluble and much larger antagonist who was among those protesting a police shooting in Kenosha. And after he shot and killed that man, he was set upon by a mob chasing him down the street as he ran in the direction of police, whereupon he fired again, killing one pursuer and wounding another.

Justice in such cases is blind to the personality flaws of those in the dock. Justice doesn’t concern itself with whether the person on trial was a busybody or a wannabe or a naif.

Trained gun owners in South Carolina could carry their weapons openly in public under a new bill that some top state lawmakers expect might pass as soon as this year.

Some gun-rights supporters argue the "open carry with training" bill would be a sensible expansion without going as far as other advocates who prefer a "constitutional carry" measure, which would allow all South Carolinians to carry guns openly regardless of whether they have a permit.

Just because you’re recoil-sensitive or need a smaller concealed-carry gun doesn’t mean you should compromise on ballistics. That’s Federal Premium’s take on its incredibly effective Hydra-Shok load, and now the company is making this dedicated defensive load available in the popular .380 ACP chambering.

The challenge of hunting with a handgun is what draws a small—but loyal—cadre of handgun hunters to the sport. Hunting with a handgun requires you to get close enough to an animal that it can hear, smell, or see you if you make a mistake. Handgun hunting also requires keen marksmanship and a level of familiarity with your firearm that hunting with other weapons don’t.

Violent criminals, sometimes desperate and other times simply heartless, don’t schedule their criminal attacks. That’s why it’s prudent for good people to carry the tools necessary for self-protection regularly, every day. A case in Panama City Beach, Florida illustrates that point perfectly.

Cops there believe a 19-year-old transient killed and robbed two Georgia men who were renovating a house in a botched burglary. Law enforcement’s investigation led to the arrest of Ruez Hicks, 19, a transient.

More than 2.2 million firearms were sold in the United States in January, according to an estimate from Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting (SAAF). The number, which represents a 79-percent increase when compared to the same period last year, is based on the volume of records processed through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Purchases made by people with a valid carry permit in regions that do not require the duplicative check, and some private transactions, are not reflected in the federal figures.

The sponsors of legislation to eliminate the “duty to retreat” from Arkansas self-defense laws met with their Republican colleagues on Wednesday, after the bill was voted down the day before in a GOP-led committee.

Senate Bill 24, also known as the “stand-your-ground” bill, had encountered some resistance from supporters of gun-rights who said the controversial bill did not go far enough in eliminating rules on the use of self-defense, despite the bill’s support from the National Rifle Association.

Twenty-seven states now have Stand Your Ground laws. High-profile cases like those involving Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis have helped build opposition to Stand Your Ground laws, but so far, no state has repealed its version. In Florida, even the sponsor of the repeal measure, Senator Jones, isn't optimistic it has a chance in a chamber controlled by Republicans.
 

TX: Anti-Gunner Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke Eyeing Another Run

In Texas, someone who’s all talk with little to show is said to be “All hat. No cattle.” Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, with his gun confiscation schemes, wears a hat to block out the sun. That’s not stopping him from eyeing a possible run for Texas governor in 2022.

O’Rourke, a former Democratic Texas U.S. Congressman, aimed for higher office and missed the target. He was soundly defeated by incumbent Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018. He launched a presidential campaign, in 2019, based on strict gun control that crashed and burned after only seven months.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
