The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court cites the Second Amendment right to bear arms and the ability of people to better defend themselves with more bullets in their guns.

Earlier this month, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was asked how he justified his push for more stringent gun control when he is guarded by an armed security detail.

Bloomberg’s response? He is a wealthy businessman and politician who faces threats that normal Americans do not, so it’s just fine for him to pay others to protect him with guns that he’d put the rest of us in prison for possessing.

Gov. Kevin Stitt signed House Bill 2597 into law last year as an amendment to the Self Defense Act. How does that change impact business owners?

HB 2597 generally removes the requirement that Oklahoma residents must obtain a permit in order to carry a firearm. Taking the inherent risk of having firearms on-site into account, business owners should review their firearms policy for their premises. The decision whether to allow firearms on a business premises remains in the business owner’s discretion with one key exception: parking lots and garages. Firearms stored in locked vehicles must be allowed in areas where employees and other members of the public normally park.

For Jeff Koons’s latest sculpture, the artist has used an unusual material: Guns. And not just any guns, but the gun collection of two-time Academy Award-winning actor Sean Penn.

About six years ago, “Sean informed me that he wanted to decommission his gun collection, and asked if I would have any interest in creating an artwork out of his guns,” Koons wrote in an Instagram post that unveiled the finished work, titled Uli. “I told him, ‘Absolutely.’”

Minnesota Senate Republicans Tuesday pushed a package of bills they say would make communities safer.

The measures would encourage Minneapolis and St. Paul to hire more police officers and add police to light rail trains but would not expand background checks for gun purchases or set up a procedure for removing guns from those deemed a threat, as House Democrats have proposed.

The Georgia General Assembly accomplishes plenty in its scant 40 days of work each year. Most session days proceed at an easy, albeit deliberate, pace despite the workload.

The opening gavel drops at 10 a.m., followed by prayers and proclamations. Bills are read into the record. Procedural measures are addressed. A friendly debate or two follows. Legislators then break for lunch, or sometimes for the day.

There are a few exceptions — and today is one of them.

Supporters say Senate Bill 1384 would create a first line of defense to make schools safer.

Opponents say the bill would increase the risk of a tragedy.

The Senate State Affairs Committee could weigh in Friday.

Senators took no action Wednesday on SB 1384, which would allow school employees with enhanced concealed weapons permits to carry firearms in school. The committee hearing will continue Friday, and a vote could follow.

“It’s simply not right to force our school employees to act as human shields,” said Sen. Todd Lakey, R-Nampa, SB 1384’s sponsor.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign may want to stock up on the soap. It’s not contagion that should concern him, but the filth coming from his mouth.

The frontrunning presidential candidate found himself squaring off with Second Amendment supporting union workers during a tour in Michigan Tuesday. Needless to say the back-and-forth did not go well for him, and Biden may need to wash out his mouth.
