Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't see it in the news. Instructor Tiffany Johnson joins host Rob Morse to talk about four recent examples.

-Are you armed at home? You and your wife are home at 9 in the evening on a Saturday night.

-Do you have a firearm nearby at night when you sleep? It is after midnight when you hear a group of men and beating on your front door.

-Are you armed at work in the middle of the day? You’re behind the counter at a pawn and gun shop.

-Are you armed at home? You’re a 79 year old grandmother and are home alone.

These gun owners survived a lethal threat. What would you do in these situations? Text and podcast available at the link. (25 minute audio)
 

The Molon Labe Flag: From the Ancient Spartan Battle of Thermopylae to Modern Liberty

While it has deep roots in the very beginnings of the Western notion of liberty, the Molon Labe flag was likely never flown by the earliest patriots. In fact, the main reason it resonates today is for its history as a militant stance against tyrants – Persian tyrants to be exact. “Molon labe” is a phrase that began during the Persian War, when the Persian Empire (then the biggest power in the world) was looking to expand from Asia into Europe. As an attempt to conquer the Greek City States, Darius of Persia sent his emissaries on a quest for a token tribute – “earth and water” – and almost all complied except one. Sparta told the Persians where to go using the laconic phrase, “dig it out for yourself.”

A defense lawyer suggested Tuesday that two Mississippi girls killed their mother in self-defense and that sheriff’s deputies may have questioned them improperly. “I can tell you that I anticipate my client and her sister are both going to be defended on a theory of self-defense,” lawyer Greg Malta told reporters following a hearing for the 14-year-old defendant. She’s charged with murder in the Jan. 4 death of her mother, Ericka Hall, near Magnolia, just north of the Louisiana state line.

Playing Pokémon Go was supposed to be a way for Jiansheng Chen to connect with his grandchildren. On Jan. 26, 2017, the 60-year-old left Royal China, the restaurant his family owns in Chesapeake, Va., and headed to the community clubhouse in the suburban River Walk neighborhood. Located about half a mile from his house in the winding subdivision, it was well known to local Pokémon Go players as a “gym” where they could score extra points by competing in virtual battles. According to prosecutors, Chen was sitting by himself outside the building in his blue minivan about 11 p.m. when Johnathan Cromwell, 21, a security guard, pulled up and confronted him about trespassing after hours. Chen put the car in reverse.

A measure that would allow 18- to 20-year-olds to carry a concealed weapon without a permit throughout Idaho has moved forward in the Legislature. People 21 and older already have that right in Idaho. But that law, passed in 2016, excluded 18- to 20-year-olds from carrying a concealed handgun within the limits of any city unless they have a conceal carry permit. Under the legislation, that exception would go away.

A police officer with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection has been arrested on charges of manufacturing guns at his upstate home and selling them to motorcycle gang members.

Thirty-eight-year-old Gregg Marinelli is also charged with tipping off a suspect in a major drug investigation, state police and the Orange County district attorney's office said.

Police say Marinelli assembled dozens of handguns and assault rifles and sold them to "individuals who are legally barred from possessing such weapons" including members of outlaw motorcycle clubs. Many of the guns Marinelli sold had no serial numbers and would be difficult to trace, authorities said.

A New Hampshire House committee hearing Tuesday grew contentious as opposing sides debated the proposed "Red Flag" law, which would allow for the removal of firearms from those deemed at risk of harming themselves or others.
House Bill 687 would enable family members and law enforcement to petition the court for temporary removal of guns. Opponents not only criticized the proposal, which they said infringes on their Second Amendment rights, diminishes due process and has the potential for abuse, but also protested that the hearing was moved to the Representatives' Hall, which the House has designated a gun-free zone.

Weld County may soon join three other Colorado counties in declaring themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries.”
The move is meant to send a clear message to Democratic lawmakers: Our county sheriffs will not have to enforce Colorado’s proposed “red flag” bill. That bill would make it easier for courts to temporarily remove guns from people deemed a danger to themselves or others.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all — security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again. — EDWARD GIBBON [On ancient Athens]
