North Carolina is one step closer to allowing teachers to carry guns in schools.

House bill 216, also known as the School Self-Defense Act, passed its first reading Thursday.

The bill would allow school staff to be armed on campus as long as they undergo training and routine drug testing. It has sparked mixed reactions from both legislators and educators.

The parents of a 23-year-old Vermont man say if the state had a law requiring a waiting period for gun purchases their son who died by suicide late last year would be alive today.

Alyssa and Rob Black of Essex have been pushing that “cooling off” period law since, and Thursday they told their story to the Vermont Senate Judiciary Committee as both opponents and supporters of a proposed waiting period for gun purchases looked on.
 

US House passes bill to close ‘Charleston loophole’ for gun background checks

Despite the symbolic victory for Democrats, the bill remains unlikely to become law anytime soon. Senate GOP leaders have suggested they will not take up the bill, and President Donald Trump has already vowed to veto it if it makes it to his desk. The House vote was far short of the number that would be needed to override that veto.
 

UT: The truth about ‘Lauren’s Law’

In reading it, you will see it’s quite short, and that’s by design. The bill is narrowly tailored, so much so that it has been estimated to be applicable in only 10 or fewer cases per year. The bill premise is to provide a pathway to civil liability for the victim(s) of a felony crime committed with a firearm, even if the firearm was operated by someone other than the owner. This would allow Lauren McCluskey’s family to seek civil damages against the owner of the gun that killed their daughter, as the firearm was given willingly by the custodian. It does not create any criminal penalties, penalize lending weapons, punish firearm owners or infringe upon anyone’s constitutional rights.

The anti-gun politicians in the House of Representatives continue to employ the shameful tactic of exploiting tragedies to market gun control that won’t prevent criminals from committing murder. It’s a sham and the Charleston Loophole bill is the perfect example of their dishonesty. The assertion that a supposed 10-day delay would have prevented a crime that took place over 60 days after the initial delay is ridiculous.
 

OK: Decade-old Heller decision caused nation a lot of heartbreak

In the aftermath of Washington, D.C. v. Heller, the Oklahoma Legislature is on the verge of making this state awash in guns of all calibers, function and type.

Heller is the worst misreading decision of the U.S. Supreme Court interpreting the U.S. Constitution since Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson Ironically, Heller opted to disregard the primary reason for the Second Amendment, which was to arm slave owners against slave rebellions.

Patriot Prayer members and a Washougal gun shop owner turned out to a Washougal City Council meeting Monday to ask city leaders there to declare Washougal a “Second Amendment sanctuary city” and instruct local police to not enforce a set of voter-approved state gun control laws.

More than 50 people attended the council meeting, including Joey Gibson, founder of the Vancouver-based Patriot Prayer group; Eric Hargrave, owner of Limitless America, a Washougal firearms retailer; and a film crew shooting footage for a “VICE News Tonight” program that will air on HBO in the spring.

I was at a local practical pistol match earlier this year, chatting with some of my friends, and one of them mentioned that she had just started taking a close-quarters jiu jitsu training lessons to help round out her self-defense skills.

“Why would you want to do that?” another friend said. “You carry a gun. You won’t ever need that.”
 

House passes measure on gun control

The Democratic-controlled House on Wednesday approved a measure requiring federal background checks for all firearms sales and transfers, the first major gun-control legislation considered by Congress in nearly 25 years.

Democrats called the 240-190 vote a major step to end the gun lobby’s grip on Washington and begin to address an epidemic of gun violence, including 17 people who were killed at a Florida high school last year.

The bill is the first of two that Democrats are bringing to the House floor this week as part of an effort to tighten gun laws after eight years of Republican control. The other bill would extend the review period for background checks from three to 10 days.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) is expected to lose $4-6 million, officials said, because constitutional carry was signed into law.

Gov. Kevin Stitt signed House Bill 2597 into law Wednesday, allowing law-abiding citizens to carry a gun without a permit or training.

The OSBI is currently in charge of applications for permits and renewals.

Marshall University’s president said he believes the lives of students and employees will be at risk if the campus carry bill is passed by the Legislature.

House Bill 2519, the Campus Self-Defense Act, was approved Wednesday night by the House and now will be considered by the Senate. It would have to be signed into law by Gov. Jim Justice.

The bill as proposed would make it legal for anyone with a conceal carry permit to carry a gun on college campuses.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero (42B.C)
