Evergreen State gun owners received a strong signal Friday that they may be soon facing another citizen initiative, this time aimed at so-called “assault weapons,” after the Democrat-controlled state legislature failed to pass a bill that would have raised the minimum age to buy a firearm to 21 years.

This came just hours before Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed new gun control legislation, breaking with the National Rifle Association and other gun rights groups. Florida has now set 21 years as the minimum age to purchase a rifle, and there will be a three-day waiting period.

Each aisle she turned down, he seemed to be there. By the shelves of Cap’n Crunch and Cocoa Puffs. By the cans of chicken noodle soup and pinto beans and pasta sauce. By the rows of fresh lettuce. And when Jacee Cole went to check out, he was there by the cash registers, too. She didn’t know who he was or what he wanted or why he was watching her. “I think I’m being followed,” she whispered to her mom on her phone.

Joe Leggett of Papillion is sending his kids to school with something new in their backpacks that he hopes they never need: bulletproof panels. He bought the 9-inch-by-12-inch inserts from a Sarpy County security firm and says the $120 panels give his kids a protective edge if a school shooting ever occurs. And they give parents some peace of mind.

“Hollywood is helping to lead the charge to destroy the NRA while giving money to the pro-gun control campaign,” former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said on Friday night, filling in for Fox News host Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle.” “But if they want to take a stand on violence, then perhaps they should look at their own material.”

An 18-year-old Battle Creek high school student has sued a Troy sporting goods store for refusing recently to sell him a shotgun because he was under 21.

Tristin Mac Fulton is seeking injunctive relief barring Dick’s Sporting Goods from “systematic and widespread violations of the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act” and wants more than $25,000 personally in damages for “denying an otherwise legally permissible sale based sole upon the age of Plaintiff …”

“Some people have confused this with a Second Amendment question,” said Fulton. “It’s not. This is about civil rights of people who wish to legally purchase and own a firearm for sporting reasons, hunting, home protection, whatever.

For the second time, the Second Amendment Foundation is suing a public housing authority in the state of Illinois, challenging a prohibition on firearms in such housing.

The first time SAF did this was about five years ago in a case called Winbigler v. Warren County Housing Authority. This time around, SAF is joined by the Illinois State Rifle Association on behalf of a woman living in a unit operated by the East St. Louis Housing Authority (ESLHA). It’s not the first time SAF and ISRA have teamed up on a case.

There is no such thing as a safe space from shooters, but gun-control advocates have succeeded in creating a safe space for shooters. When quacks like Nikolas Cruz want to massacre innocent people, like what occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week, there’s no time to wait on a 911 call. Law enforcement response times are too slow. According to research from the Department of Homeland Security, the average school shooting lasts 12.5 minutes, while the average police response time is 18 minutes.

The Louisiana Legislature, fresh off a week-long break after the collapse of its recent special session, is heading back to the State Capitol on Monday for a three-month regular session.

The 2018 regular session begins at noon Monday. At about 1 p.m., Gov. John Bel Edwards is slated to give his assessment of where the state stands half-way through his first term and what priorities he expects the Legislature to address.

I don’t share the same slavish devotion to the Second Amendment as some of my fellow conservatives. For the life of me, I can’t understand why the average gun owner would ever have need of a bump stock. Like many card-carrying NRA members, I would argue that requiring background checks for all gun sales hardly seems like trampling the Constitution.

The Wyoming Legislature has extended what was supposed to be a four-week budget session after the House and Senate failed to agree on state construction spending. The two chambers passed a budget Saturday morning, the last scheduled day of the session, but could not break an impasse on the construction legislation until after 10:00 p.m. that night, at which point was too late to write a new bill, vote on it, sign it and deliver it to Gov. Matt Mead for his approval.

It happens without fail. A mass shooting occurs somewhere in the country. Politicians nationwide begin to squabble over gun control. Firearm sales increase. That's the reality, local proprietors say, but not one they choose to embrace. Ben Beauchemin, owner of Wicked Weaponry in Hooksett, and John Cavaretta, who owns Chester Arms in Derry, each acknowledge sales have gone up since the Feb. 14 high school shooting in Parkland, Fla., just as they did following the Las Vegas massacre in October and other mass shootings across the United States.

Governor Rick Scott signed a bill that will leave it up to local officials to decide if their teachers should be armed with guns in schools, Friday. Charlotte County Teacher's Union say they are gearing up to fight back against it. “I’m the guy that teaches them, I don’t kill them," said Bryan Bouton, leader of the Charlotte County Teacher's Union.

 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. — Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
